women happy drinking

“Oooh, the Lovers! We know what that means!” The whole group giggles with excitement as I begin to tell them how the Lovers pertains to this particular reading.

In the past few months I’ve booked some very cool VIP Tarot Parties, set in beautiful homes  or luxurious LA locations like a secluded beach or swank hotel.  Most of the groups are made up of sophisticated, attractive and successful women looking to have some insight on their lives while enjoying the company of friends and a glass or two of bubbly. 

My VIP Tarot Parties usually begin with me getting clarity from the group on their intentions for the day and an explanation on how to get the best readings.  For those that request it, I offer a Mini Manifesting Session prior to the readings to help each of them get clear on what they want to attract and the best way to manifest it. These women aren’t new to the manifesting game, most of them are already living some amazing lives as producers, entrepreneurs, artists, etc…  they just feel stuck, want to get to their next phase or maybe just need to add some passion into the mix.  

There are two ways to have a VIP Tarot Party, 1) Set up a private area in which each person rotates to get a short private reading while the rest of the group eats, drinks and mingles.  And for the more open (and brave) 2) The Party is set up  in a group setting, like a living room or large dining table in which everyone is present as each person gets their reading.  In this way, friends get an opportunity to chime in about each person’s reading, sometimes providing further insight to what they believe the card means to the situation.  While both options are fun, the latter is usually more intense, and can create  deeper bonding among friends. There’s usually some crying happening too but surrounded by lots of support and love. 

I’ve received some great feedback from Tarot Party attendees, they tell me that weeks and months later they’re still talking about the insight they gained and the fun they had.  I love that! A few of the  groups I now meet with once a year so they can set new intentions and get clarity for their latest projects and passions.

In my world, Birthdays are such a big deal. Maybe its because I’m both a Leo astrologically and a “3” in numerology which means I’m a double dose (times a thousand) of good times, friends and fun.  So I celebrate ALL MONTH.  Yes, all month.

 But I’ve come across some people who don’t look forward to birthdays (huh?).  Even if its an age thing (yes, getting older can feel daunting) birthdays are a great way to mark new beginnings.  If life has been challenging lately, how about stopping pre birthday, to look at the lessons learned and think about you would like to see for your next year?  What about using your birthday so declare big positive changes and then actually take the action to do them for the next year?  You can do fun things like make each Birthday Year a theme.  The Year of Living Lusciously.  The Year of World Travel.  The Year of Me!

Whatever it is, make it special.  Make it AWESOME.

If you or someone special to you has a birthday coming up a Tarot reading is the perfect gift to give.  Through your special Birthday Tarot Reading you’ll get clarity on what’s been holding you back from having that fabulous life you know you’re meant to be living.  You’ll get insight on lessons of your past year.  You’ll also get to see what kinds of exciting and possibly scary stuff  is in store for you for in this new Birthday cycle.   You will receive a  detailed Tarot Reading Report based on what we have uncovered to use as a guideline and incentive for an incredible new year.

I’ve seen and heard this many times – a client will tell me they want something, such as a new job or a love relationship, but then the next words that come out of their mouth is

“but I don’t know if I believe that it exists” or “I don’t think it will really happen for me.”

Desires vs. Beliefs means that what you say you want and what you believe is your “reality”  is at odds with each other.  In your heart you know you really want something but your head cuts you off with “stop with that silly daydreaming!”  So guess what?  Your beliefs will most often win.  Why?  Because when we believe something to be true, we look for proof -reasons why – it has to be true, even if it works against our heart’s desires.

When working with my clients, I use the Tarot to help them get clear on what they want, which is really Stage One of Manifesting – CLARITY.  Once their desires are clear we look for the blocks, like the opposing beliefs we were just talking about.    A client from this weekend told me that he wanted to leave his job for a better paying one that he could be passionate about.   Then I waited for what I knew would come next “…but I don’t think I can find that.” 

What I suggest for my clients to do is, instead of finding reasons why something can’t happen, find reasons why it can.  And make those reasons so strong that your beliefs change to help you find your desires, not fight against them.  I know that it may be natural for some people to have a negative belief come up first so I suggest you try this

Write down at the top of a piece of paper what you want to manifest. 

Example:

I want to get married and have a family

Next, write down the first reason that comes into your head why this will not happen for you

I don’t believe that there is anyone out there who I can fall in love with and will fall in love with me

Now, what I need you to do is write down 5 Reasons Why it is Not True

1. I haven’t really been looking for love, I’ve  been a hermit

2. I know people who have fallen in love and gotten married who are similar to me

3. I am a lovable person with lots to offer a partner

4. There are plenty of people out there that are ready to have a serious relationship and at least one of them is looking for someone like me

5. People fall in love every day

Do this exercise to combat every negative thought that comes into your head.  If the thought is:  “I can’t leave my relationship because I can’t find someone else to love me” then write down 5 reasons why that is not true.  It must be at least five because its important that the reasons why its not true are stronger than why you think this negative belief is true.  When you practice this way of thinking, soon enough those reasons why you CAN get something will win over and law of attraction will work in your favor.  And yes, while it may not be an overnight change -you’ve had those negative beliefs for a while after all -I’ve seen amazing things happen with my clients all the time.  They have gone from being in jobs they can’t stand to attracting or creating a career they love.  They have attracted healthy love into their lives when their old beliefs told them love was not meant for them. 

Even if you are a skeptic, try it, and see what happens.  I would love to hear what changes happen for you – Julierose@livelovetarot.com

I’ve had a lot of new clients in the last few weeks, many of them new to getting their Tarot cards read and “this law of attraction stuff.”  So for this week’s Manifesting Monday post, I thought I would go back to some basics.

Before you continue to read this blog, I’d like for you to look around you and think about what you see.   The chair you are sitting on.  The framed photos on your desk.  Books that you love.   Even if you are in a cafe or library, please take note of everything.  Do you realize that before any of these items were in your possession or around you, someone had to think about making them? There was an idea, perhaps a plan, then action and creation. In fact the room and situation you created for yourself may have come to you because you thought about what you wanted. The most basic principal of creativity simply states that your thought creates. If you want something, whether it be an experience or a thing, begin first by having a clear and focused thought of what it is you want.

Wherever you clearly put your focus, you attract and create.  That is the Law of Attraction.

Think about something you desire. Concentrate and focus as clearly as possible on what you want. If  the vision of what you want is not clear, then your focus will be blurred.  If what you want is heartfelt, your focus will be sharp. Desire directs focus. Blurry desires will never materialize but focused desires will. Clear focus is like the mind’s magic wand.  It points your creativity in a specific direction and channels all your energy and experience behind it. 

Whatever you focus on, you attract into your life whether you want to or not.

Sometimes you may find yourself focusing on negative things. The Law of Attraction doesn’t decipher what is negative or positive. It just gives you whatever you clearly focus on.

Are you focusing on your bad relationships? You’ll attract even more of the same. Focus instead on how excited you are to attract new healthy relationships.

Always thinking about how broke you are and confused why you continue to not have money? Hmmmmm, do you know the answer now? Yes, you’re getting the hang of it… focus instead on how great it is to be in the process of acquiring more money.

For this week’s Manifesting Monday exercise, write down something specific that you want to bring into your life. Imagine it clearly. Use all your senses to bring it to life. What do you see, smell, taste, feel, hear when you imagine having it? Put yourself in the picture of your vision. Can you see and feel yourself having the thing you want? The clearer the picture the stronger your ability to manifest your desire. Even if you are skeptical, for an experiment just play along and imagine anyway.  Something amazing may come out of it.

What will you choose to think about this week?

I was speaking with a client today, this really lovely woman in New York, and we started off by having her tell me about her successes of the week   How did she know she had some success? Because she said she had “proof” of how she is attracting the things that she wants in her life.  So we went over these things that showed her that she was on the right track of having a successful directing and writing career.

I love when my clients seek proof that they are on the right track.  To me its similar to when people look for “signs” because they basically serve as the same thing.  Reasons to confirm that you are moving forward and improving.   Proof and signs are every where, but many times people use them as reasons to say why they are failures.  “See, Julie? We broke up because its a sign that I suck in relationships”   Well, no, what if its a sign or proof that you are being authentic with yourself and you can no longer tolerate relationships that don’t work for you?  What if its proof that you and your partner didn’t really communicate well, and its a sign that you just need to learn how to do that better and/or find someone who is a better fit?  Its really how you position it, isn’t it?

Signs and proof are like the Tarot cards – there are no “wrong” or “scary” cards, even the ones that seem intimidating like the Devil and the Death cards are just like all the others, symbols of what is happening in your life, and how you can improve your situation.  In my sessions with clients, I use the cards to help them see where they are doing well, and where they can possibly make some changes.  If their career reading is full of what they might think are “negative” cards what we do is find the solution for a smoother path.

TRY THIS:

Below is an exercise to help you find proof that you are succeeding.  What you will do is argue against your negative self, that side that says you suck.  I want you to fight with passion against that Negative Nelly and let her know that her statement about you is false!

On  a blank piece of paper,  write down the numbers 1-3 and leave about 3 inches in between.   With each number write down each thing you have been focusing on to create/change/manifest.   Now write down 3-5 things that prove that you have been taking actions towards these things.

Example:

Proof Exercise 

1) I want to increase my business income by at least 20%

Proof that you’ve been moving forward with this

– I’ve asked for  help from friends or family for ideas to promote my business

– I have been reading books to help me learn more

– I’ve started new social media pages for marketing

– I’ve been working on an affiliate program

– I’ve been networking 2 times a month

Do this exercise whenever you feel stuck or are being hard on yourself about your ability to take action. This exercise will serve as your Proof List to show you that you’ve been taking action.  If you don’t have a big list, that’s ok, just do something now to add to it.

THE STAR
You’ve probably noticed that my readings about love situations have big challenges.  While I am a lover of love and believe that there are many amazing relationships out there, most people come to me for readings when things are not going as well as they would like, not when they are 100% happy with their relationships.

Lately I have seen The Star Reversed come up in love readings.  When this card shows up to describe a love situation it may signify that a relationship is going through a rough patch.  There seems to be underlying tension which has been eating away at the relationship.   One or both of you have resentments that have not been fully resolved.   Maybe you discussed things on a superficial level or there was even a big fight over the problem, but you never really resolved the issue.

An example of this is my client who came to me because he thought that things with his girlfriend were not going very well.  He said that he didn’t really know why but their relationship was tense and things were really weird between them sometimes.   As we looked at this situation through some readings, we discovered there had been a situation a few weeks back in which my client had been upset that his girlfriend was flirting with her co worker at a party  in ways he thought were inappropriate (too much touching and laughing). When he confronted her later, because they both had been drinking, there was a big fight.   When they talked about it the next day,  she said she “wouldn’t do that in front of him” again and made the discussion end there.  Hmmmmm.   They both kind of let it go at that point and went on with their lives.  While at first they were loveydovey little things started setting them off.  That is because below the surface each of them had issues that they never talked about, which were really at the core of the flirting fiasco.   As a writer/director my client has not been working steadily in the last few months.  Because of this, his self esteem has taken a hit and he has been having some fears that his girlfriend would find someone else (like the dreaded co worker) and leave him.   What we saw in the cards for her, was that she may be holding on to some resentments about money and having to pay for most of their expenses because his lack of work.

Through a relationship reading we saw that there was still a lot of love there so this was still a salvageable situation.  I suggested that he bring up the tension he had been feeling and take responsibility for his part in it.  While it was up to her to bring up her own issues at least he would be able to tell her what he would do to make things better between them.

When The Star reversed comes up for you in a reading, be sure to get to the root of the issues by being honest with yourself about what you’ve been doing to create pain or cause tension.  Only when we are honest with ourselves and take responsibility for our actions can we move forward in finding solutions towards a more loving relationship.  The Star card is also about hope and healing, so know that there is still a chance to make things beautiful again.

The World Reversed  may show up to reveal to you that what you thought was a successful accomplishment will continue to bring you feelings of struggle.   You’ve worked so hard to get what you wanted but now it doesn’t feel as you thought it should.  Is it just a set back or delay in gratification or is this not what you thought it would be?

In the case of a client, she had married a man whom she thought was the perfect match for her.  She dated many “bad boys” in the past, the kinds of guys who were uber hot, but also uber terrible at commitment and fidelity.  So of course this level headed sweetheart with his calm demeanor, great job and amazing family really seemed like “husband material.”  After three years of dating, they married in a storybook setting that even a Disney Princess would envy.   Yet, now just barely two years in, the magic has already dulled – the sex is almost non existent and there is a brother/sister energy between them.  This gorgeous woman tells me even attempts at dressing sexy are met with responses that feel like “meh” from her often distant hubby.  

This doesn’t have to mean the end for this couple.  While two years into a marriage seems to be too soon to have that level of boredom, the rest of the cards are important for this reading. Marriage is a serious commitment for most people and my client takes her vows very seriously so she wanted to do what she could to make things work.   What came up next in the reading for this situation was The Moon reversed, The Wheel of Fortune reversed, The Hierophant reversed and The Empress, which showed that he had his own issues he was dealing with that he was not telling her.  It seemed that he was experiencing stress with work and money and his own perception of her need to have attention and be “spoiled” created some resentment.  Through couples therapy it was revealed that he has always had the feeling that she was settling to be with him, and with money being a possible issue, he created this resentment that he would not be good enough for her if she knew this.  The thing is, she had a job in which she was making great money and didn’t marry him for that.  So while he has to own up to his own feelings of insecurity and the poor way he was taking it out on her, she’s  also looking into whatever energy and attitude she was sending out that may have made the relationship feel unbalanced. 

What I love about Tarot in relationship readings is not that it tells you your relationship outcome but more importantly that it can give you insight on what is really happening and advice on how to take action. There are so many things that are left unsaid, but yet the resentments exist and often grow.   A Lover’s Tarot Reading allows clients to see what they might not be consciously aware of, but can now address.  Not all readings have relationships come out with happy results, but most turn out to be the best solutions for overall and long term happiness.
