I am so excited about a new Tarot project I’ve been working on!  I’ve recently commissioned a very talented artist, Michael Shirley, to design a set of Tarot cards for me.  I’d love to share a sneak peek and while giving you a Tarot Tuesday Card of the Day!

The Judgement card shows up to tell you to take some time out for self reflection. Its your time to move forward to a new, more elevated phase in your life, but before that happens take the opportunity now to stop and think about lessons learned. What are the things you want to leave behind and what do you want to take with you as you start a new chapter in your life? Are there people you can choose to forgive, are there some shifts in outlook and emotions that are important to make? Often this is the stage of creating deeper awareness and paradigm shifts. Let go of unnecessary “baggage” and create space for new memories ~ you’re about to begin your exciting new journey!

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 SUN

With the Sun coming up for your love reading, this means its time for renewed energy in the relationship.  A mutual passion for life will be ignited.  Could it be that summer and its symbolism of freedom and fun that will get to you? Thoughts of outdoor concerts, picnics on the beach and vacations to exotics lands are at play here.   Financial burdens don’t seem significant or are lessened and you are able to spend some money on luxury and pleasure (yay!)

Emotionally you and your partner are at a stage where you are truly appreciating the best aspects of each other.  Whatever doubts and cloudy days affected your relationship in the past, you are now in perfect accord.  This is one of the least complicated times of your relationship as your love and commitment seem almost simple.

When the Sun comes up to symbolize the future of your union, it suggests that this is relationship that has a strong future as you not only love each other, you truly like and enjoy each other.

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.

happy couple

I met with a lovely couple last night.  They wanted to do The Lovers (couple) Reading because they felt they needed some insight on what was going on with their relationship.  While there were some challenges around a few issues (one likes to go out more than the other, they have different tastes in movies, one is too messy, etc)  their biggest thing was that they both have said they want to get married but each felt that maybe the other was not quite ready for that huge step.  What I love about using Tarot for these kinds of things is that it helps to create a more open dialogue.  What I mean by this is if the cards suggest that one person in the relationship may be too controlling or needy its easier for the person to “hear” than if the partner actually said it.  Mostly because what that means is that the “needy” person may have already secretly felt that he/she were acting as such.   Also, the insights are coming from the cards and me and not the partner who could potentially be in big trouble for saying such things! So basically the cards may allow the couple to listen from a more detached perspective.

I don’t want to give away too much of what was said, but through the reading they were able to bring out their deepest concerns (Do you really love me or just want to be married – to anyone? Are you really ready to be married or are you just afraid to lose me?).   These are really valid concerns that many people bring up in relationship readings and  the cards were able to allow them to bring up these issues and then talk about them openly and get really great dialogue going.

So, what was the outcome? To be married or not to be married?  Well, I am expecting to get an invite to a really special event sometime in the next year….

During our 3rd week of Love Club (my Ready for Love Manifesting Group) one of the group members had an exciting announcement. “I have a boyfriend now!” she told the rest of the group who was surprised but very happy for her. How did that happen so fast? We were only in Week 3 after all. The truth is I had been working with her in a one on one coaching program (focusing on career issues) for several weeks. During one of our sessions, while making her Life Vision Board, I noticed that she had everything she was dreaming of represented on her board…except any pictures that had to do with Love! Why? I asked. She didn’t even notice, or so she said. When we delved a little deeper it became clear that her negative feelings about past relationships, her own guilt about certain things she did, and her desire to keep her independence was making her subconsciously and consciously push away real relationships. She was in fact currently dating a few guys. One of them sounded pretty promising. A nice, handsome guy who was really sweet to her. Yet she didn’t seem to have much excitement for him. She focused more on another one, who, after hearing about his attitudes and actions, didn’t sound to be very “boyfriendy.”

When I see “blocks” within my clients I suggest, before moving forward, to release those things that keep them from getting what they really want. So I gave her some homework which consisted of doing a little personal inventory and then gave her a releasing ritual. Over the next couple of sessions she said she felt lighter and was getting more clarity about her love life.

By the time Love Club started, just a few weeks later, her energy felt open & positive and she was ready to address her issues. Let me say this is KEY to finding love. You may say that you want love in your life, but if you are still closed and you allow excuses, fear and negative energy to get in your way, you will find it very challenging. During group we did more “work” getting to the bottom of their issues, releasing negative energy, and finding clarity to move towards the love they want.

So it was actually very natural that she started to see that the emotionally healthy guy (who I saw as a great fit for her) was the one she really wanted. And when they were on their 5th date and he asked what she thought about being his girlfriend, she happily said “Yes!” Now they are in a committed relationship and are deliciously healthy and adorable. Drama free, which to emotionally unhealthy people may seem “boring” but to those in a better emotional space, know there is more time and room for amazing positive experiences together. I’m still working with her on career issues as well and let me say, her life is truly magical like a ROCK STAR 😉

“Remember that sometimes not getting what you want is a wonderful stroke of luck.” ~Dalai Lama

 

I posted this quote the other day on my Facebook page. Its a phrase I tell my clients all the time, because it is so true. While I whole heatedly encourage going after what you want, sometimes you don’t get exactly what you want because you’re supposed to get something better suited for you. The Wheel of Fortune is actually spinning in your favor, not against it. I’ve had quite a few examples in my life where this has played out. One of the most significant times happened years ago when I really wanted to continue my career in empowering young girls and women. I was so focused on this and had applied for a select few organizations that I felt very drawn to. With one of the places, I had done really well in the first interview for the position as the director of a well respected girls organization. I prepared, I bought the right outfit, I felt confident. But alas, at the time of the final interview I blew it. Not expecting a room full of the organization’s board of directors and staff, I got nervous and I choked. I was devastated. This job was “perfect” for me and it should have been mine. I didn’t really have a back up plan.

I decided to go to Hawaii to visit my sister and her family as a break to console myself, while I tried to figure out what I was going to do next. A little over a week into my trip I got a call, it was from TZONE, The Tyra Banks Foundation, could I come in next week for an interview? Ummm ya! Having heard nothing after 5 weeks after turning in my resume, I didn’t even think I had a chance. I packed my bags and said Aloha to Hawaii.

My first interview was with Tyra’s mom and she was wonderful. I felt connected, confident and pretty sure that I aced it. But then again, that happened with the other job, so what did I know? A day later, I got the call for the 2nd interview and this time it was with Tyra. It was just she and I in a big board room and her huge green eyes staring at me with no smile (excuse me, no smyze) on her face. You think Tyra is intimidating on Top Model? Try interviewing with her for her beloved TZONE, she takes it very seriously and she wants you to know it. Throughout the whole interview, she stared right at me not blinking as if she were trying to see through my eyes into my brain, as she whipped out question after question. I was very nervous. But at the end, she smiled and said “say bye to my mama before you leave” and I KNEW. I got the job. And this job was fantastic. Not only did I get to revamp and run the teen girls empowerment program and camp, I also got to meet and train some amazing professional women who were to be mentors for TZONE. I got to work with the issues that were important to me and I felt so valued. Tyra, her mom and staff were all so warm, exciting and fun -life at the Bankable office never had a dull moment. And the office was just outside of West Hollywood where I live (NOT in Downtown where the other job I thought I wanted was located) so going to work was less than a 10 minute commute . To make it even more exciting, there was a “Hollywood” aspect to this position (hey, I’m a Leo , I am naturally attracted to all things Hollywood and Entertainment) that I didn’t even realize I would love which meant partnering with other celebrities and their organizations,  like the Bruce Willis Foundation, Will and Jada Smith Foundation and a number of other well known celebrity causes. I even got to travel to NYC a few times with Tyra for exciting events and was in an episode of Top Model (very briefly, if you blink you might miss me) where she introduces her staff. I’m not gonna lie-  I loved those aspects of the job too. It was everything I wanted, but so much more. Tyra was also a huge influence on me, inspiring me to be a producer and an entrepreneur. Everything felt “possible.” The Wheel of Fortune had  definitely become my career card.

While its fun to reminisce, my point is, if the Universe doesn’t give you what you think you want, its probably because you are really meant to have something so much better. That’s why when you send out your positive vibes and ask for what you want, always add “I would love this or better” because the Universe has a limitless imagination and the “Better” can be beyond what you could ever dream.
