My intire life like many I have struggled with the situation of doing nothing. Doing nothing and being ok with it is very much frowned upon in our society and I guess I get it to a degree. We do need to sustain our lifestyle and for most that requires work of some kind. Beyond that though why are we taught to be almost overly ambitious. We watch each other and compare ourselves as we were taught to by authority figures since early in life. We brag to each other about aaaall the dope shit that we are doing and what does it get us? Love? Nope. More friends? Not the real kind. More things? Maybe but will these make us happy? Absolutely most likely not. I suffered exhaustion burnout and a legitimate breakdown 3 years ago because I was between jobs (although I had one lined up and everything) and would not allow myself and my lifestyle at the time would not allow me to sit still and work through all the traumas I endured throughout my life. Traumas I suffered like everyone else because I was weakend by not feeling as right or good as some of my counterparts. Would you believe I have actually had someone I admired (not a family member) tell me out and out that I was not ambitious enough. Although I had moved to the opposite end of the eastern seaboard became a licensed professional and attended several colleges all while working to survive in cities with higher cost of living than any other I had ever lived in before I left home. One being Boston one of the most expensive cities to live in in this country! I will never forget how I died inside the almost panic it produced in me. Needless to say it was one of several things that ruined my view of this person as a mentor. The worst part of it was this woman was enduring grave illness that she told me herself she thought was brought on by extreme stress and worry. I won’t go into details but in the short time that I rented a room in her house she talked to me in depth about uncontrollable situations that she tried with so much effort to control. I saw her worry about what her boyfriend was doing to an extreme degree even asking me to drive while she spied on him which I was willing to do because I hate liars and people who disregard other’s feelings but when I asked about causes for suspicion she couldn’t really give me one only causes for insecurity. My point is over ambition especially when misdirected into something like controlling uncontrollable things will only cause us to disappoint and turn in on ourselves because we can never accomplish that. There is as much of a place for doing nothing as there is a place for ambition. These are the times in life where we often get our best inspirations when we can hear that little voice of divinity or our higher self or whatever you call it whisper to us. I have done a lot of healing doing nothing. 💜

Card of the day.
Today could find us deepening our position as the master of our own desires. We see now that our own will is the most powerful force in our lives because when we are in alignment whatever we desire is what is actually for us. Deepening our ability to slow down our response to things that might effect our behavior. We are strengthening temperance as a practice in our lives learning to choose appropriate and beneficial reactions automatically. This imbues us with strength and the ability to persevere. We are powerhouses with the ability to overcome obstacles and break through resistance. 💜 #kingoffire #temperance #nineoffire #flower #yellow #daisy #quartz #seaglass #amethyst #tarotreading #mars #neptune #pluto

Today is a powerful one for sure! We are are experiencing joy in a real way. Seeing our blessings more clearly and realizing where we have won and made big gains. We are riding high emotionally because we are crossing over in to some very positive change. We are releasing some blockages or some negative thought patterns because we have come to some revelations, some realizations about ourselves our thought patterns our life. This might blow the lid off something changing the way that see our life forever. Whatever it is imbues us with a power we may never have felt at least not for a while. This process, this event gives us the strength to persevere through any obstacles because we see now that we have done just that and won blessings and abundant, expansive feelings. Enjoy today these feelings will be quite nice. 💛 #nineoffire #thetower #tenofwater #flower #aventurine #quartz #crystal #tarotspread #tarotreading #jupiter #pluto #rosequartz
Card of the day.
Our minds are on fire today! We are feeling mentally strong, like a bright pupil. We are learning and discovering new spaces in our minds and uncovering ourselves to a deeper degree. We’re able to explore ideas and options from a stance of freedom, of free spiritedness allowing our minds to take us to new places. We are at home in this mental space feeling safe to allow our minds to wander because we have peace and wisdom on our side. We have access to some peaceful stable energy that complements soul searching and contemplation very well. We may even be drawn to meditation or other spiritual practice which is a wonderful way to use this energy, this headspace. Although we might be questioning our ability to persevere we become aware that this only allows us to deepen this quality strengthening us against life’s trials and mental challenges. Today is a great day to undertake those receptive spiritual practices to explore those deeper questions and listen to the answers from the all than is. 💚 #tarot #pageofire #nineoffire #thehermit #flower #quartz #crystal #citrine #tarotreading
Card of the day.
Today we are feeling lift from yesterday’s energy. We might become aware of a romantic opportunity or could be very much focused on the more creative and intuitive parts of ourselves. We might be flirting with a love interest or a creative endeavor but what ever it is has us feeling more dreamy and loving. We are getting clear on our direction and exploring different avenues for our success. This is a great time for us to take stock of our thought patterns and decide what is working for us and what is not. We may have felt some dissatisfaction recently with a situation but we are ready to put the disappointment behind us and give it another shot. This may mean leaving something that doesn’t work behind and giving ourselves another shot. Moving into something better for us with renewed hope.
