Slow Down & Turn Within

Slow Down & Turn Within

Weekly Reading

Slow & Steady, Strength, & Ace of Swords

Stop. Take a deep breath. It’s time to slow down this week and do a little introspective work. That advice may be the exact opposite of what you were hoping for. Maybe you have the desire to jump up and just do something—anything—, but that’s not what needs to happen. With chaos happening everywhere, slowing down will get you to where you need to be. If you continue to rush, you’ll be unprepared and the momentum won’t last.  You may even be “forced” to slow down. This week focus on these two ideas:

Before you look at outside events turn inward(Strength). What is happening on an internal soul level? It’s easy to identify everything that isn’t working that is external to you. We see events and hear news and we point and say, “That is the problem. I will fix that.” What you need to start work on is more intimate than that. You need to understand yourself first. Finding the right path forward for everyone can only happen if you understand who you are first. By more fully understanding who you are on a soul level you become strong. The important takeaway here is that you need to find your own inner strength. Only then can you spread strength to others.

Next ask yourself: Why did I chose to incarnate now, in this time of conflict? What is unique about me that the world needed me present now?(Ace of Swords) The world NEEDS you. Don’t let the chaos drag you down. Don’t let it extinguish your flame. You are here to shine. You are here to help. You are here to inspire others. It’s important that you understand that. Look at your gifts. How can you heal the world?

If you do Reiki, maybe everyday take a few moments and heal the earth. If you do crystal healing, take a few moments and program a crystal to help shift and heal your community. If you read tarot or oracle, draw some cards on how you personally can start the healing process in your area. If you’re a medium, channel a message of inspiration to help people see the bigger picture of what’s happening. A musician, writer or artist? Then create something beautiful. If you consider yourself to not have any of these gifts, then do random acts of kindness for those in your community. The point is each one of us—once we can identify our gifts or things we bring that are unique—can reach out and make a HUGE difference. Open your mind and choose to see the Light in your week. Then spread it further, starting with yourself at the center, radiating outward.

For a few hours on Wednesday this week, I will be giving free short Oracle readings on Facebook. They will be a 2 or 3 card reading on what can help you find your inner strength and why you chose to incarnate now—what you have to offer that is unique and needed. I am hoping this will help some of you get the foothold you need to move forward and make lasting change.

I will post Wednesday morning 8AM EST/5AM Pacific and the window will remain open until 3PM EST/12PM Pacific. You’ll need to have liked my Facebook page so you can see when it's posted and then comment on the post to let me know you want one. The last time I did this there was a HUGE response. I loved it. It was a lot of fun, but I got fried, so the window of opportunity will be limited to these few hours. The readings will be posted publicly in the original thread. Feel free to share the post with friends so they can take advantage of this opportunity, as well. PM me if you have questions. See you Wednesday!

Blessings on your Journey!
