“We should not judge people by their peak of excellence; but by the distance they have traveled from the point where they started.”
~ Henry Ward Beecher
Life has a force within it that drives us to grow and evolve over time. When we begin to live a life with intention and learn to trust our own intuition, we are always shown where our best path is for growth and opportunity. This could be formal learning, or finding a teacher or mentor. It could be us sitting back and truly learning from a life lesson by thinking about what happened, our role in that unfolding, and how we might make different choices in the future. We might be shown a knowledge gap, where we will not be able to go further in life until we are able to add more information or skills to our existing situation.
Exploring our learning opportunities always gives us a positive direction forward.
Here’s what you need to do today:
Take your crystal, and complete this short guided meditation.
Hold your stone in your cupped hands, close your eyes, and slow your breathing. Bring white light into your body until you feel peaceful and calm. Then bring white light into the crystal too. Allow yourself to connect to the stone. You may feel it tingle, or visualise a colour in your mind’s eye. When you are ready, open your eyes. Keep your stone near you, and hold it when you write.
Now shuffle your cards, while silently asking the question to yourself ‘What do I most need to learn right now?’
When you have shuffled the cards and they feel ‘done’, select one card using the method that feels right for you.
Place the card face up in front of you.
Clear your mind by closing your eyes and taking one deep breath in and then out. Open your eyes again. Take a minute and look at the picture.
What stands out for you today? Is it an image or a colour? Is it a number or a word? What are your first impressions? What thoughts come into your mind?
Write these down in your journal.
Now let’s go a little deeper. What feelings or words does this card evoke in your mind when you think about the card and its images in relation to the question ‘What do I most need to learn right now?’ Take five minutes and write some stream-of-consciousness thoughts down. Don’t censor or judge them. Trust the process. Draw a second card for clarification if you need to.
Finally, read back over what you have written.
Trust that by becoming aware of what you most need to learn, that this knowledge will begin to find its way to you.
Hugs and love, Nicole xx
