July Soul Reading: Part Three of Five

Four of Cups from the Ceccoli Tarot

Stillness, quiet, and mindfulness are required for this week’s exploration. Create a quiet space and look beyond your everyday distractions. In this quietness, let your compass scan your spiritual surroundings. In order for something to grow and thrive, you must make room for it. What can you release for now to create the room?

Clearing the spiritual clutter blocking your view, can help create more room to grow. Because we are so used to our everyday surroundings, we often miss opportunities to grow even if they are staring right at us. We are too busy or too overwhelmed and we forget to look. This week take a look. Make the time to see what is there. The opportunity for you to move in the right direction is there in front of you if you can take the time to slow down.

Action Steps:

  • Each day this week, schedule time to clear the mind’s clutter: a walk by yourself, sitting at the beach, meditation, etc. At the end of each period of quiet, visualize your compass and ask it’s help in pointing you in the right direction. What do you receive? It’s ok if you don’t “get” anything, just sending that energy out there attracts those first small steps to get your started.
  • Make a list of things that you are realizing no longer support the direction you are wanting to go. Save this list so we can work on it later.
  • Enlist support from the “support people” you may have listed on last week’s journal work. If you didn’t have any support people come up, make a list of these people who will help you thrive. Have them help you find three opportunities to help you move for with the area of life that you chosen to work on.
  • Find one inspirational activity that supports the direction your trying to go in. It could be reading a book on the subject, speaking with someone who does it, or taking a class or visiting someplace that has the same theme as to what you are interested.
