Talisman: “A lesson truly learned is crystallized as earned wisdom. You have all you need for the success you need.”
“Wisdom allows you to recognize traps on the road and familiar patterns that you want to avoid. It also enables you to quickly gather information about where you are on your journey. It helps you recognize your allies and know how to find the best routes along the way. Now you are at a place where you know the right things to do and the best choices to make. You really can’t make a mistake. Whatever your inquiry, great fortune awaits you, for you have the wisdom to arrive at the right decision. You have learned your lesson and earned the right to your success.”
Talisman as Challenger: “When the Talisman card comes to you as challenger, it warns that you must be aware of the repetitive patterns in your life. Sometimes the things that feel most familiar carry with them reminders of what you do not want to experience again. Yet here you are, faced with an important choice. You can move forward cautiously, or you can look for another path that will take you in a new direction. Consider this: If you have fallen down a hole a few times, why would you not walk around the hole this time? If you know where the hold lies, treasure that wisdom.
Although the Universe is unlimited, every individual path has some limitations. Accepting that not all avenues are available to you at this time is a powerful realization. That said, you do not have to retrace your footsteps either. No matter what, you are on this path to gain greater wisdom, regardless of the choice you make. This is the time to ask others who have been here before for advice and assistance. Their wisdom will awaken your own.”*

Ok, so even though we talk about everything and anything becoming possible, it is highly unlikely that I am going to become a rock star, an astrophysicist or a super model in this lifetime. We all have our limitations. But we have those types of limitations for a reason! We have them so that we don’t head down the wrong road and waste a bunch of time doing something that is too far from our current Soul Path. Now I do realize that many of us do get off track, and that many of us still love to fantasize about lives that are pretty off base. My point is that you probably already covered that stuff in a past lifetime and the lessons you learned and the gifts you gathered are still available for you; without having to live that particular life all over again; and these gifts can be used in this lifetime to create a different experience.
So let go of what probably won’t happen in this lifetime. Let go of comparing yourself to others who are on a totally different path than yours; such as celebrities, musicians, athletes and models. When we waste time comparing ourselves with others, we lose sight of what is special about being who WE are and what we have to share with the world. It’s great to be inspired by others, but it sucks away vital life force to compare and criticize ourselves when we put others above us.
You have learned so much. More with each lifetime and more with each experience. Now you see the patterns and pitfalls. Now you are stronger, smarter, more aware. You can use your knowledge to navigate your way to the highest and best outcome for this lifetime, this reality.
It is time to put together all your gifts, all your tools, all your skills and all your knowledge to create something so amazing and magnificent it will completely transform everything.
