October 3rd: Seeing the Beauty
Seeing the Beauty
October 3rd Weekly Reading
King of Pentacles from the Ceccoli Tarot and Peace from Wisdom of the Oracle. What an interesting combination of cards for the week. On one hand, the reversed King of Pentacles talks about dissatisfaction and lack of fulfillment in everything that surrounds us. While, on the complete opposite side of the spectrum, Peace speaks of being completely satisfied, happy and fulfilled.
What is the message then for this week? Don’t fall into the trap of finding what is wrong with where you are and what you are doing. It’s so easy to find the negative—to complain. Often we focus on what isn’t working because that is the most apparent thing. We always notice what isn’t happening or what is askew, first. But have you stopped recently to think of everything that IS going right? About all the pieces that ARE falling into place? When things are going smoothly, we don’t notice and appreciate that they are flowing easily.
The Divine is here to remind us that if we focus on the negative, we will attract more of that—more of the stuff that doesn’t work. If we focus on what is going well, our hearts will swell with joy and love and that Light will shine forth from us and attract more of the good stuff! So this week, focus on the good stuff!
You ask, “So much is going wrong! What in the world can I be grateful for??”
Ok, I get it. We’ve all been there. Here’s what you need to do: take a baby step towards a more positive goal. How? Step outside your door and look to nature. What do you notice? Perfection in a flower? Beautiful leaves changing vibrant colors? The roar of the ocean or the trickle of a stream? The majesty of dawn falling onto mountains? The beauty of a fire orange sunset? The most perfectly imperfect rock? Maybe an animal visitor comes to you to say hello?
Focus on these things. Find the awe of Divine bubbling up inside you. Nature—with all of it’s imperfections—is beautiful. You—with all of your imperfections—are beautiful. Sometimes, when you can’t find the beauty within, you must first find the beauty outside. Take the first step and look to nature for the inspiration you need to make the shift.
