Sit back and wait

I remember several years ago I did a reading for a lady who was disappointed because she’d been to a medium and had been promised wonderful, wonderful things for the autumn and nothing had happened.  She came to me because she no longer believed what the medium had told her and was looking for reassurance.

I laid out the cards and they showed a very promising future.  In fact, I backed up what the medium had told her… brilliant things ahead.

And yet she became argumentative and rude to me because I mentioned that she would have to put in some effort to get the rewards.  She didn’t want to hear that for her to improve her life she would have to work for it.  If she’d followed my advice then she would have everything promised in the cards by now.  Instead, I expect she is still waiting for the changes to happen all by themselves and feeling frustrated that her life is stagnating.

The Tarot is a wonderful tool for pointing you in the right direction through life – you can see the sign posts and walk a magnificent path.  It can aid you in making right decisions and help you to see pitfalls before you actually reach them.

But to reap the rewards of a Tarot reading you have to be prepared to listen to the wisdom given and follow it.  If you choose to ignore the advice and just trot from reader to reader searching for an easier answer then you have to be prepared not to live life to the full.

So remember, a fantastic life is their waiting for you but to make it happen it’s down to you 🙂



Fool, Rebel, or Conqueror?

Good morning everyone,

I am in my office finishing up records and preparing for the week end.  I do not know if any of you have been counting, but this week had at least fifty days to it=)  I am truly drained.

I wanted to dedicate my last few swimming thoughts to my personal hero “The Fool”.

He is depicted in the Rider Waite deck as an androgynous character keeping his/her eyes skyward and heading straight for a drop that will leave him/her beyond recognition.  The response from most people at this point would tend to be along the lines of, “Oh my God…don’t do it man/woman (boy girl?….lol) !!  You’ll kill yourself!!”  And if this person did not respond and walked off the cliff they would say “What an idiot!!!  He was either too stupid or too rebellious for his own good!!”

Though the above reaction makes sense if you apply a strictly logical analysis to the situation.  This morning I would like to challenge you to focus your logic in another direction.  What do you suppose would happen to our young person if he never jumped?  “He would be alive and whole”, you might say.  I agree that he/she indeed would be guaranteed life (though the length of it would still be unknown); but would it truly be whole?  An unbroken body does not guarantee true wholeness. 

My point in this is that if we commit 100% of self to our dream two things are guaranteed: 

  1. An adventure which holds no promises begins (if we do not plummet to our deaths we will learn as we go along).
  2. Most people will see us as a rebel or fool

We will never learn the truth about ourselves or our dreams unless we jump.  It is therefore my belief that once our feet leave the security of the ground and we defy all the laws we become conquerors (if only for a brief second).  Isn’t better to live as a shooting star than a stagnant always wondering at what you could have done soul?
