Elliptical Galaxy – 4 of Pentacles

Today I thought I would do something a little different, I have a new deck of Tarot cards called the Quantum Tarot – by Kay Stopforth and Chris Butler, so I thought I would draw reference to today’s message and see what the Universal message is.

I drew the 4 of Pentacles, which can also be referred to as the 4 of Coins, the summary is as follows for the day.

20180222_133810.jpg

Elliptical galaxies are very old and contain lots of dying stars.  No new stars are being created as most of the necessary fuel has been used up and things are slowly grinding to a halt.  The 4 of Pentacles manifests this winding-down of energy as a stubborn holding-on to the status quo.  The fixed energy of the four becomes a little too fixed in the earthly suit of the Pentacles, (related to the element of Earth).

A refusal to move forward and embrace change is characteristic of this card, with the resulting fear of scarcity and a sense of stagnation.

Key principles of today’s message

  • Where are you refusing to change?
  • Where are you stuck?
  • What is holding you back?
  • Where is your sense of lack?
  • Where are you sabotaging your growth?

Reviewing a box of dark chocolates!

Today I wanted to share a concept of dark chocolates, I remember many years ago seeing this meme. FB_IMG_1519284648761

It took me some years later to understand the importance of its meaning.  “Heartbreak”, now we all know, in fact I do not imagine for one moment that anyone does not know what that feels like, it is one of human nature experiences that are always an aspect of life through the passage of time.

My perception of it is that the dark chocolates are the very things that need to be addressed in a relationship that is not healthy, may be toxic, may be imbalanced, may be where there are aspects that are being shown as a means for soul development and a journey to growth, one thing I have come to realize is that our deepest, darkest, shadow experiences, the most harrowing of experiences are where our soul grows the most, we are forced to as in the very deepest aspect where we are forced out of our comfort zone we are afforded the gift of light after our dark chocolates experience.

One of the most painful aspects of this dark chocolates experiences are the feelings of loss, not dissimilar to the feeling of “grief”, grief can sometimes plummet you down the rabbit hole, sometimes it can take you to a very dark and overcast place as it introduces you to the very core aspects of our subconscious self that may need to be healed, especially if there has been trauma that has been experienced before, whether this is from an early experience, childhood or other.

You see our triggers do in fact have something to teach us, as we journey through the very differing range of emotions that we can experience through loss, heartache, whether it be through death, or a severing of a relationship we become faced with aspects of ourselves that may feel rather uncomfortable, this is not a one rule for all, it is a rule for some, some are able to just dust themselves down and appear not to be as affected.  However, a point to note in my opinion from experience is that when we soldier on and do not give our souls a space of acknowledging, processing, validating an experience, there can be a situation much later in life where it can smack us in the face.  The Universe does that you see.

Having this dark chocolates experience can feel rather uncomfortable, disconcerting, unfamiliar, scary, leave you with a sense of not feeling in control as you journey through the experience of coming to terms with what has been handed to you.  I liken this to experiences that you may not have been expecting or may not have seen, a traumatic event that has jolted your soul awake, jolted it, shook it to the very core and rippled the whole of the foundations of what you thought were.

One of the things that is very common is to go through several stages of emotions in the early stages of trauma and shock. these are:-

  • Shock
  • Disbelief
  • Highly emotional
  • Rationalization of ones emotions and feelings
  • Denial
  • Anger
  • Making excuses for the experience
  • Trying to downplay the experience
  • Acceptance
  • Victim mentality
  • Survival mentality
  • Relieving the experience in your mind

The range of emotions that you may experience due to your situation or circumstance will assist you in journeying through a variation of these emotions and you may bounce around different ones at any different times, the last stage is anger and then you find a place of acceptance.

Heartbreak and is one of the most painful things, there is even heartbreak in the loss experience, it is not unknown for couples whom have been together for long periods of time to lose their other partner to find themselves in a situation where they have not long followed.  It is extremely important not to rush the healing process of heartbreak and loss, it is a very unique grief journey that is unique to each and every individual.

It is important to take one day at a time as you allow yourself to heal and get to a place where finally you get to a place of acceptance, listen to your soul, your mind and spirit and you will know when you have taken the lesson and be able to turn it into a blessing.  For everything that we do experience in the theme of dark chocolates gives us an opportunity for growth, even if you do wear the experiences of that experience for many years to come.

Be kind to yourself, be kind to your heart and soul as you heal.

Cutting Chords

CUTTING CHORDS

A SENSE OF CLOSURE

Sometimes the emotions we are feeling belong to the person we are in connection with and an energetic chord must be severed.

In every relationship people are constantly exchanging energy that can become a chord connecting two people.  This energetic chord forms just below the breastbone and can remain long after a relationship has ended.

This unbroken chord may leave an open channel between you and another person, through which emotions and energy can continue to flow.  If you are unaware that the chord exists, it is easy to feel another person’s emotions and mistakenly think that they are yours.  Besides the fact that this can limit the amount of closure you can experience in a relationship, letting this chord remain intact can leave you with a sense of sadness while creating feelings of lethargy as your own energy is sapped from you.  Cutting the chord can help you separate yourself from old baggage, unnecessary attachments, and release you from connections that are no longer serving you.

Finding and cutting unwanted chords is a simple gentle process that is best done alone and when you are relaxed.  It is important that you are strong in your intention to release the chord (that you desire too) between you and someone else.  To begin, breathe deeply and perform a simple centring03f2192a177c55080e8d094ea2698392 meditation.  When you are ready, visualise or sense the chords that are connecting you to other people.  Run your fingers through the chords to separate them until you find the chord that you wish to sever.  There is no need to worry, because the chord you need to sever will feel just right.  When you have found it, determine where the cut should be made and then visualize the chord being cleanly cut.  If you need assistance, Archangel Michael can be called upon to help you with his sword.  Afterwards, if you feel that cutting the chord has left spaces in your energy field, then visualize those spaces being filled with healing sunlight.

There may be times where cutting a chord can help free a relative or loved one to reach new stages of growth.  You are not severing the relationship, but you are severing the chords that are no longer serving you both.  At other times, a chord may simply refuse to be cut because it is still serving a higher purpose.  It is also important to remember that cutting a chord with someone is not a replacement for doing your emotional work with people.  It can, however, be an enactment of that work upon its completion. In any case, cutting a relationship chord should always be viewed as a positive nurturing act.  By cutting the chords that no longer need to be there, you are setting yourself and others free from the ties that bind.

Have faith that what is for you will be revealed.

We fight to hold on and we fight to let go!

But sometimes the biggest thing that you can do is to release, let go and no longer fight, the biggest challenge at times is trying to hold on with a sense of control, when in actual fact letting go will be the biggest release of stress that you can allow yourself.

Yes I know, there are feelings attached as to why you may be holding on, but sometimes when obstacles are constantly faced just maybe one needs to consider a few things, maybe what you are aspiring to or for, it simply isn’t the right timing for its fruition, another may be it simply isn’t for you.  The pain associated with disappointment, loss feeling aggrieved is often as a result of holding on, maturity, wisdom and experience are our greatest teachers and as we mature we do get a sense of when to hold on and when to let go.

In addition we do go through a series of cycles in terms of timeframes in relation to our motivation, desire, hope, aspiration, dreams and our energy can fluctuate, but where does one draw the line? in terms of holding on and letting go? only you will know the answer to that, only your gut (inner voice) will tell you when to hold on and when to let go.

So today I ask where are you holding on unnecessarily? and where are you letting go?

If you feel something is right for you in your core in your soul, do that, it will either be for you or it won’t trust that, trust yourself, either way it is always a win win situation, if something is for you, great, if it isn’t nothing is lost, simply a learning and the capacity to go to re-evaluate and try something different.

Nothing is ever in vain for every experience positive and negatives have their place.

Life is like a book with a chance to create a new chapter on a regular basis, you decide 🙂

 

In love & beautiful light,
