Learning How to Use the Tarot
There is a stigma around tarot card readings and I want to ease some of your minds right now. It is not black magic; it’s not about conjuring the devil or denying God… It’s a method of understanding your life, past, present and future and seeking guidance for goals and problems in your life. If you believe that nothing in life is random, like I do, you’ll understand why we believe each card and its meaning was drawn for a reason. It’s all about good mojo and finding guidance to overcome and pursue things in your life.
You are a badass. No, really! You are. You should tell yourself things like this every day. Don’t wait for someone else to validate how awesome you are. It’s about knowing your own self-worth and realizing your own potential. Sure, it’s nice when other people see that, but at the end of the day, you need to be your own cheerleader. Most of your self-confidence and drive should come from how you view yourself. What makes you badass? Are you a wiz at work? An adventure seeker? Really good at a hobby? You don’t need to be an army ranger or thrill seeker to be a badass.
Love With Your Whole Heart
Love. Love is the craziest of all feelings. What I find strange about it is that it can be as all consuming as grief and hurt just as much. For those of us who have incredibly open hearts, life can sometimes suck. Loving people and things with your whole heart, with every fiber of our beings, can leave us extremely vulnerable and susceptible to unbelievable pain when this kind of love is not returned… but I wouldnâ€™t live my life any other way. This kind of love has allowed me to help myself, and most of all, help others. I always say, â€œgive of yourself, if and when you can.â€ Giving to charity is something that is very important to me, but Iâ€™m not a Rockefeller, so monetary donations canâ€™t happen as often as I’d like, but what I can give all the time is LOVE.
