Each Thursday I choose one reader's comment from Intuitive Tuesday and pull an additional card for more clarity...so check back on Thursday to see what cards come up.
Yesterday I sat down with my cards just before I did my meditation and selected The Magician (reversed). Today, I shuffled a different deck of cards (my Mystic Faerie Tarot by Barbara Moore), and selected the Magician (reversed) again. So, there must be a message here for me.
In its upright position, the Magician is about using the gifts and tools you have to take charge of your life so you can create your own destiny.
When reversed (upside-down), it can mean that you are somehow blocked and not using all of your available resources, experience, wisdom, gifts or tools to move you forward. You have all of the ingredients, but haven't quite figured out how to create a delicious masterpiece.
In my journal yesterday, after selecting The Magician (reversed) and meditating on its meanings, I wrote the following:
This is a reminder to you to fully use your gifts. You've only begun to uncover what all is available to you. Step into it further and know that more tools will appear when you need and ask for them and also that you are barely using the abilities of the tools you have available now. Make it your quest to deepen your learning and application of these gifts. You have everything you need. The time now is to apply it.As you read through this, I have a feeling some ideas popped into your mind about what gifts you have that you'd like to use or learn more about. Take note of at least two gifts/tools that you'd like to have or ones you already have, but would like to deepen your knowledge and expand.
By the end of the week, take at least one step forward to gain more information on these tools (check out a book from the library, do some Internet research, talk to someone who uses these tools regularly, etc.) and/or purposely use the tools/gifts you have but may not be using. Even if you are not an "expert," play with it; try it out. Have fun!
This might be pulling out a deck of your own tarot cards and pulling and interpreting a card, using an energy technique you learned a long time ago but haven't used in a while, or perhaps something like writing a short story or drawing a picture.
My own experience using and practicing with new tools:Whatever gifts you have, The Magician (reversed) reminds you that NOW is the time to bring these out and let them shine.
I have been practicing with a tool that I learned last year called PSYCH-K. This is a simple process to help people balance for beliefs they have that are driving their lives. It is like re-writing the software of your brain. I was timid about integrating it into my life coaching and tarot reading, but have just recently dusted it off and have been trying it out.
Just last week, I met with a handful of friends and with each of them we balanced for beliefs around such things as being happy in a marriage, grief issues and losing weight. Just today, one of them said they felt the new beliefs were working in her life. Celebrate!
