Angel Wisdom Wednesday – March 2, 2016

Welcome to the newest feature…Angel Wisdom Wednesday. Each week, I’ll draw a card from the Guardian Angel Cards by Toni Carmine Salerno and post it, and a little message from me.

Encouragement, your love is invaluable to the Earth and to those around you. Even though you may not always see the positive effect your love has on others, trust, for it does. Each time you offer love, through a loving gesture, thought, or word, you plant a seed of love, and love always generates more love. Trust and continue in your loving work.

This is a timely card. The world, and the people (including ourselves) in it are in need of more love. As the card says, it isn’t always obvious that the love we put out into the world makes much of an impact, but it does. It is important that we start by building a foundation of love in our own hearts and  then expanding that love outward. Focus on loving acts at this time. No matter how big or small…it has a ripple effect. Remember too, that each day we are presented with choices. Will you choose love?

Steaming Pile Of Shift

I’ve been hearing from many of of you that you are going through difficult adjustment periods right now. We all know that change is not only inevitable, but necessary. Sometimes though, the process is really hard to go through. Even when we actively ask for things to come to light so that they can be healed, we can’t be fully prepared for the impact of it when it happens.

Not only that, there are times in which shifting occurs on larger scales. It is my opinion that we are living in one of those large scale times. I’m right in the midst of it with all of you. Trust me, I understand all too well the mixed feelings of happiness that things are changing, along with the fear and confusion as we all try to figure out what to do next. As we watch the changes in our world unfold, sometimes it feels like it is all we can do to just hang on. While it’s easy to feel guilt or a sense of insufficiency when fear or uncertainty rear their heads…just know that this guilt and insufficiency are unwarranted.

How do I know? Because I have had to remind myself or have the people who love me remind me of it often enough…especially in the past week. I recently had to see a women’s health specialist about some long term issues. After he reviewed my records and asked what felt like an endless number of questions, he uttered words that no one wishes to hear. He feels that it is more than a slight possibility that I may have uterine cancer.

Yes, he named off a few other possibilities, but he feels concerned enough to have ordered a biopsy next week. Now, I’m feeling less fearful…less shocked…less paralyzed. For several days after my visit however, it was far from easy. Luckily for me, I have a great network of sisters. Sisters by birth…sisters by choice. Let me tell you, my sisterhood is quite often my saving grace, and I can only hope that I offer the same sense of love and safety to them. Through the gentle love and support that I’ve received, I’ve been able to calm down quite a bit and to feel that I’m going to be okay…no matter what.

Why am I giving you all of this highly personal information? Just like I share my work with you…the good and the bad…it is important to me that I share my life and experiences with you…the good and the bad. Yes I come here often to teach, encourage, offer my services, and share my creative endeavors. That’s not all though. I am here to share with you my humanity. Sometimes the most important thing which someone can offer to another is the knowledge that they aren’t alone in feeling lost and afraid sometimes.

Next time you find yourself stepping in a steaming pile of shift…just know that all of us are wading through it right along with you. We live in interesting times dear friends. No matter how difficult it is at times, we have to remember that we are never truly alone and that there is always room for hope.

 

Card of the Day ~ January 19, 2016

Today’s card is from the Gaian Tarot by Joanna Powell Colbert.

This has only happened one other time…today’s card is the same as yesterday’s card. As I was shuffling, and asking what message we all needed for today, this card literally flew up out of the deck and I had to almost crawl under my coffee table to retrieve it!

Ten of Earth

The Ten of Earth tells of things from the past which are being revived. It could come in the form of ancestral knowledge, or that our life’s work is at a point of paying off or succeeding. A key thing about all of this is the image on the card. It is of an older man walking away from us, down a path. The clue of this lies in the wisdom of age, which we can leave behind us after we are gone. When examining your life and your work, ask if what you do benefits anyone other than yourself. This card also points out the need to examine whether we are carrying around any old voices of doubt or fear which may have been planted in our minds by our families, other people, or experiences. If so, the time has come to release them and trust that you can move forward to receive the riches and blessings which are intended for you.

To have this card come up twice in a row, and especially in such a strong way indicates that we need to continue to focus on this message today. So, I posted the exact same words as I did yesterday. Oftentimes I will get a slight or not so slight twist on an interpretation, but not today. Let’s continue to carry on in moving forward with trust.

 

New Blog Feature ~ Weekly Videos

Each week, I’ll be posting a video. For the time being, I’m calling the series “Ask Tracy”. The first one was released this past Wednesday on Facebook. In the future, the videos will be posted everywhere, including here, on Wednesday of each week. I’m including this week’s video in this post.

I’m inviting you to submit your questions of a spiritual, metaphysical, or paranormal nature. You can submit them here in comments, on YouTube in the video comments, or on Facebook. Just have them in by Monday night at 11:59 pm Eastern time. The question of the week is selected by random number generator in order to make it fair. I’m looking forward to doing this each week! Here’s the first video:

Card of the Day ~ January 15, 2016

Today’s card is from the Gaian Tarot by Joanna Powell Colbert.

Elder of Water

This card is a reminder of the importance of being of service to others. Perhaps you have been through a lot in your life. This gives you the experience to be able to listen to and provide comfort to another who may be going through a difficult time. If you are willing, be on the lookout for an opportunity to be of assistance today. Having the chance to be a soothing presence for someone in need is as much of a gift for you as it will be for them.
