In this coming week’s wellness tarot challenge, we are called to better manage our resources to free our hearts and minds from fear. Read on for details!
This Coming Week’s Reading
The purpose of this Chaos Rally tarot reading is to take a look at the coming week and see in what way we can challenge ourselves to do better in regards to our overall wellness. I ask you to approach this as a fun brainstorming session of possibilities rather than me prescribing a course of action to you.
And again, in terms of wellness I want to point out that this applies to the physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual aspects of the self. All four of these comprise the total sense of being and need to be taken care of in order to be well. As always, and I cannot stress this enough, be sure to speak to the appropriate professional before making changes to your care plan. This is especially true if my reading for some reason inspires a change in diet, exercise, supplements, or medications, or even raises a concern regarding to your health.
I’m not a specialist in any of these fields. My goal is to look at how to manage wellness in the presence and with the cooperation of your professional care team. Please keep this in mind when going over this reading.
Here is the image of this coming week’s reading.
The Challenge: Six of Pentacles
Assess the balance of your resource management.
The challenge for this week is to assess the balance of your resource management.
Keep in mind that resources here means time, effort, energy, and material goods, such as money. So when you make your assessment, you will need to look at all of these things.
Is the flow of resources in your life even or uneven? If you have an abundance of something, there is an opportunity to share. If you have a shortage of something then it’s time to find where the leaks and drains are, or to become creative in making up for the slack.
The idea here is to achieve balance. You can’t stockpile your time for example, so you need to be sure that you’re using it wisely. And while you can keep a food storage, it should be a working one that is rotated with food that you actually eat.
The same can be said for anything else. Whatever it is you have needs to be things that cycle and flow in your life that help you move forward rather than block or drain you. If it’s something that you need but don’t have, perhaps you can make an exchange to obtain it with what you do have and don’t actually need.
The Lesson: Five of Pentacles
Learn how to deal with the pain of suffering and loss.
The lesson here is learning how to deal with the pain of suffering and loss. It’s a pain that will make anyone feel isolated and unsupported during our greatest times of need. This pain can be so life altering that we will go through tremendous and ridiculous lengths in our daily lives just to avoid it.
It’s important to remember that everyone has felt this pain at some point in their lives. None of us get out of here without experiencing it at least once on some level. It is the nature of being human. This is a big part of why we are called upon to love one another.
Only through love are we able to remind each other that we are not alone and heal the wounds of loss and suffering.
Are you giving and receiving without fear of loss?
When someone spends money on you, what they are actually doing is symbolically exchanging their time because time is money. We work to earn that money. That is the reality. And that is money that could have been spent elsewhere. In addition to that, they are actively with you. They are paying attention to you. They are spending their time with you. And during all of this, you are the one determining the quality of it all.
What you need to keep in mind is, they are doing the same with you during this process as well. So are you providing an equal value to what you are receiving?
In other words, are you giving and receiving without fear of loss? Are you capable of mutually meeting needs? For this is what true love means.
As long as abuse is not occurring and you are able to remain aligned to your true self, deal breakers don’t exist in this equation. Otherwise you are either doing all the giving or all the taking, and you’re not really aligned with your authentic self because of fear.
The Inner Lie: Two of Swords
You can trust your inner voice when you are able to let go of the doubts and confusions being fed to you externally.
You can trust your inner voice when you are able to let go of the doubts and confusions being fed to you externally. You know what needs to be done, what needs to happen, and where you need to be. All that is left to do is you having the courage to clear your mind and taking the first step towards it.
The balance of your resources are your responsibility to manage, not anyone else.
You know where your resources are imbalanced and you know what you need to do to restore the balance. Whether it’s your money, your time, your energy, your attention, or even other materials that belong to you, your worry points to where corrections need to be made.
It doesn’t matter if other people won’t like any of the adjustments you make since the balance of your resources are your responsibility to manage, not anyone else. If you are being drained in any one area, then your energetic account is off balance which means you are not functioning at your best. This is not negotiable. Your energetic account needs to be brought back into balance. How you do that is entirely up to you.
Do not allow the fear of losing others prevent you from doing what is best for you.
Do not allow the fear of losing others prevent you from doing what is best for you. As long as it causes no lasting harm, there is no need for fear. Everyone has their own lessons to go through and if you are acting from a place of love and trust, then all is well in the long run.
If you permit fear to stop you, then you risk losing yourself which is the greatest loss because then you spend life feeling like you have never really lived.
Trust that whatever it is you need to do in order to balance your resources is for the highest good and act upon it from a place of love.
Trust that whatever it is you need to do in order to balance your resources is for the highest good and act upon it from a place of love. Others may resist at first, but in time they will adjust and come around. Things will improve for you.
The Wisdom: Knight of Cups
While you do need to speak openly and honestly from the heart, you must do so with the intention of being authentic or healing.
While you do need to speak openly and honestly from the heart, you must do so with the intention of being authentic or healing. One must be mindful that words always have the power to instantly plants seeds in the heart and mind.
Therefore, you need to take care that the words you speak are not unnecessarily cutting or scathing when you express your truth. In other words, your words need to come from the seat of your power and a place of love.
How much of your heart you can freely and openly express to others in the moment greatly correlates to how you are managing your resources.
You’re not going to be expressing yourself much if you’re feeling short on time. You won’t be giving your attention to someone, never mind telling them what you think, if your mind is too busy distracted worried about other things or playing around on your phone.
The list goes on, really, but the bottom line here is when we manage our resources properly we are better able to focus on what we need to in the moment. In order to fully express our truth, we need to be present in the now. You can’t do that if you are constantly scrambling to grasp at whatever resources you think you may or may not possess.
One of the biggest reasons expressing our hearts goes awry is the fear of loss.
It’s this fear that causes us to censor ourselves. It’s this fear that causes us to even say or do terrible things. It’s this fear that causes us to assume the worst when we listen to or watch others.
Instead of sitting in your fear, you are being called to sit in love. Speak gently, but don’t censor. Assume the best possible things you can think of in others whenever the opportunity arises. Allow yourself to be guided by love. Be brave enough to take this adventure.
As said before, loss in life is unavoidable no matter what so we might as well embrace love as much as we can.
Whatever it is you decide to do, for whatever reason, make sure you act upon it from a place from love.
Whatever it is you decide to do, for whatever reason, make sure you act upon it from a place from love. I know this was said before, and I find it interesting that this is coming up again with a different pairing of cards. When we act from a place of love, dignity, grace, respect, and compassion it is then that we know the greatest good can come from our intentions. It may not unfold the way we expect or want, but we can trust that it will unfold the way it needs to.
Managing resources in a balanced manner frees the heart and mind from fear.
Managing resources in a balanced manner frees the heart and mind from fear. By being free from fear, you are able to express, give, and receive openly from a place of love. Decisions can be made from the seat of your power and acted upon knowing that the highest good will unfold from it. Overall, peace and healing will be found despite any losses in life experienced.
