My Tarot Journey

 

IMG_3597.jpg

I’ve always been that one friend that is super curious and often voyages on various spiritual journeys. Partially, it is a result of my overly ambiguous curiosity and on the other hand it’s a result of me wanting to learn more about new things. Recently, I have been seeing more people use tarot cards to seek enlightenment and predictions of their future. When I say “predictions of their future” I am not talking psychic.

I believe in the law of attraction. Think good thoughts and good things will happen. Think bad thoughts and you will attract just that– negativity. I believe that your words hold power; just like your thoughts. I speak things into existence through undoubting faith.

As I began to research more on tarot cards I learned that it is not about picking a card and allowing that card to predict your future. It is far more deeper than that. Using tarot cards allows you to connect with your self and mediate on your intentions. Connect with your cards- let them speak to you. Don’t go through each card and look up the meanings. Look at the card and observe every fine detail– what does it mean to you? How can you relate the chosen card to your current life and situation?

Since I am new to tarot cards I will be drawing one card a day. This will be a added routine in my daily meditation. The card I drew today spoke to me on so many levels it is unbelievable. Again, it is all about your interpretation of the card and how it can relate or be applied to your life. The words were encouraging to me and grounded me in a sense. I feel like my path was on a discourse but now I feel redirected and focused.

Please share your tarot and or spiritual journey with me and others in the comments below. I would love to know what you do to meditate and or rejuvenate throughout the week.

If you would like to purchase Kim Krans, The Wild Unknown Tarot Guidebook and Cards Kit- I will link it below on Amazon. The kit is beautiful, Kim is a excellent artist. The colors on the cards are beautiful and Kim wrote the guidebook in her own unique handwriting. The reviews on Amazon really helped me make my decision on the purchase. I encourage you to look over those as well. Many reviewers posted pictures to give you a better idea. I know you will not be disappointed in the purchase.

New Moon in Virgo

Sun., Sept. 9, 2018

Welcome– the New Moon in Virgo. IMG_3591

Lately, I have been really intune with astrology and have learned so much on the topic through reading. It all started when Kalyn Nicholson recommended Yasmin Boland’s book, Moonology. Something so simple, yet so complicated as the Moon- let’s be honest… we take it for granted. When was the last time you took a moment out of your evening/night to just stop and acknowledge the moons existence? What does the moon mean to you? There are 8 phases of the moon and today I will be focusing on the New Moon as we welcome it today.

The New Moon gives us the opportunity to set intentions and speak them into existence. I will be guiding you on how to do this.

1. Set your new moon intention

I keep a journal where I write down my new moon intentions. I found this to be very helpful. When setting your intentions be every bit of “intentional”- involve your emotions and feelings. Your intentions should have meanings and should be something that you are passionate about.

  • Be specific
  • Write it down
  • Visualize it
  • Keep your journal near your bed and reflect on your intentions every morning and every night up until the Full Moon.

2. Know the difference between intentions and goals 

  • Your intention must hold the purpose of the following:  attract, build, and grow

New Moon:  Attraction

Full Moon:  Releasing

3. Meditate on your intention

  • Say it aloud
  • How do you feel about it? Heavy or lightened?

4. Speak it & believe it into existence

 

As we move closer each day to the Full Moon be sure to let me know in the comments how the New Moon helped you in manifesting your intentions. Were you successful and/or what should you have done differently?

I wish you all a happy new moon and hope that all your intentions come to reality for you. Know that this all depends on you- believe it and it shall be.

I encourage you all that are curious about Moonology to read Yasmin Boland’s book, 81GDfiQ9YsL.jpgMoonology. It can be purchased on Amazon. I will link it below along with her website. She has a lot of information and tools available on her site if you are interested in learning more.

Family Sports Traditions

capsChanging seasons is always a special moment for sports fans whether their sport season is approaching or leaving; win or loose. Our family always looks forward to the fall- with October approaching that means hockey season is just a month away. We are Washington Capital fans – DIE HARD!

My husband and I have been following hockey since we met and it has become a family sports tradition that our children love just the same. It is the most skill required sport in my unpopular opinion. I swear we don’t just watch it for the commentary and occasional intense fights.

We truly have a love for hockey and spending family time watching the games and going to our local pub for big games to celebrate both the victories and defeat. We are proud that our home team brought home the Stanley Cup last season. It was truly a great accomplishment and victory for Washington. I am positive that the upcoming season will be just as successful as last season.

What family sports traditions have you created? Share below in the comments your tradition, favorite sport, and team.

 

Blog Transition

IMG_3558It has been nearly 6 years since I last posted to this blog. I am feeling so nostalgic right now as I type away. I was literally updated my computer and something urged me to log in and honestly I thought I deleted this blog years ago. It really took me back to read over my blogs from the first to the last. It speaks a lot about each experience I have had over the years both good and bad.

Well, fast forward 6 years and I am still happily married to my childhood sweetheart. We have had two beautiful daughters and have had multiple family pet additions to our house. It is well over due to revive this blog. I have a new vision for this blog as 2018 comes to a close.

I will continue to blog about controversial topics but will not merely focus on that. The purpose of this blog is to share with you my life in black & white beyond color; beyond race. I will be sharing my opinion on current events/issues, along with my travel stories and fitness journey.

I am always open to topic suggestions my email is always open.

Thank you all for continuing this blogging journey with me.
