The Lovers ~ Swan: “Come be with me and let me marvel in the You that is all magnificent. When we come together it is not so that we can fill something in each other, but instead, stand in our own glory and know that together we can create something magical. Let the contrast of our individual states create the perfection in our togetherness.”

~ Message From the Swan

“I think most of us are aware of the ugly ducking story, which is really the story of one’s inner self taking its time to manifest in to the outer experience. During this phase of outer evolution the Swan must trust that there is nothing missing in its life and that who it is, is perfect by natural design, regardless of the outer reflection others see. This element of inner beauty and inner wholeness is crucial to the power of the Lovers card. For it matters not what sort of energy you are working to partner with. It only matters how you see yourself as a mate or partner. Do you have the ability to be whole and present with that which you are attracting? Or are you negating the very thing you are trying to attract? The Lovers card asks you to look not at what you can obtain from someone or something else, but how you can rejoice in it. Learn how to stand in your own power while reveling in the power of those around you.”

Business and Career: “When it comes to business, it is easy to forget that you have something to offer those around you, and not the other way around. If you want or need something from someone else, first you must find out how you can be of benefit to them. This will showcase your talents in ways others will never forget. And isn’t that what you want in a business relationship? To be unforgettable for all the right reasons?”

Family and Relationships: “The Swan represents the element of unconditional love: Love of self and love of others. It does not place one over the other or negate love by wrapping it up in a bow of expectation. Swans pick one life partner and one only, through it is not the singularity of their choice that is relevant, but the commitment they have to the choices they make. When you look at your relationship, can you say you are just as committed to your choices?”

Health and Well-Being: “The ugly duckling story is a fantastic metaphor for the relationship you have with your body. If you see it as broken or stupid or constantly failing you, then it will be almost impossible to transform it into the body you dream of having. In order to bring the energy of the Lovers into your healing practice, you need to first build love inside of yourself. Show your body you love it and are truly grateful for all it does for you. Build on this vortex of gratitude, and before you know it you will have transformed your body from the ugly duckling to the beautiful Swan that was there all along.”

Card of the Day Journal Prompts:

~How do you wish to be loved?
~Where are your expectations limiting your experience with those around you?
~How can you be more like the person, place or thing you are working to attract?”*

~ By Leeza Robertson

Here we have a reminder of the duality within each of us: Dark and Light, ego and Soul, Male and Female. The two together form a perfect heart shape. We must balance the two to find true love. We must become the balanced one to attract the other balanced one. We must find equality and acceptance first within ourselves. We must have the commitment to Unconditional Love within if to truly experience it with another. We yearn for the Yin to match our Yang, or vise versa… yet if these are out of balance in our lives, we cannot balance them within a relationship involving another.

Whether you are single or in a relationship presently, there is big love waiting for you, a deeper and more profound connection. But it must start with you. If you are to strengthen the connection with someone whom you already love, you must clear out and heal your past pain. You must experience forgiveness and compassion first for yourself, and connect with the deep love within. This is the gateway. This is the door waiting to be flung open. If you are single, the door resides within your own heart, seeing your own self worth. Knowing who you are and how much you have to offer. Finding joy in your own presence and shining your light out into the world.

If you struggle with self-image, ask your angels and guides to assist you in your inner work. Set the intention to heal your heart, and then open it wide. Find your groove. Appreciate all that you are, the unique gift that is you. And put it out there that someone very special will see it too.

Namaste

Four Of Swords ~ Zombie Toad: “Did you know that the most successful people of your time nap? Resting one’s mind and body does wonders for the creative energy of the soul. It is in this stillness that we can remove ourselves from the workings of the physical world and just allow things to fall into place, without our constant interference. Sometimes the best course of action is no action at all. Just for today, take a load off and rest those weary bones.”

~ Message Form the Zombie Toad

“The Sonoran Desert Toad, aka the Zombie Toad, got its nickname from the fact that it spends most of its life buried underground, in a state of hibernation. The only thing that can wake this Toad up and get him to come above ground is the rain. When the monsoons hit the deserts of the southwest, this triggers and internal alarm in the Toads and lets them know it is time to rise and shine. The Toad, much like the Four Of Swords, knows when to act and when to lie in wait. Sometimes you just have to wait until the time is right. Acting before you need to could not only be a waste of energy, it could be dangerous. Now is the time for stillness, to rest and increase the amount of naps you take. It may even be the time to take an actual retreat.”

Business and Career: “The saying ‘Get out of your own way’ rings loud and true for this card. Now is not the time to push; instead, it is time to do nothing at all. Stop whatever it is you are doing and just allow things to fall into place.”

Family and Relationships: “Do you need to stop and let others look after you for a change? Allow yourself to lean on others, or to let those around you play a bigger part than you have allowed them to in the past. Take yourself out of the action for a while and see what happens.”

Health and Well Being: “This card can literally mean rest. So for now, put your feet up and allow your body the rest and recovery it craves. This is not the time to push yourself to your limits; instead lie down, sleep, dream and heal.”

Card of the Day Journal Prompts:

“-What are you afraid will happen if you are not there to control everything?
-Where can you include more down time in your schedule?
-If you could go anywhere for a vacation, where would you choose to go and why?”*

~ By Leeza Robertson

We are being reminded again of the power of rest and relaxation. Not every moment has to be scheduled. Not every moment must be productive, at least in the typical sense. It is time to take a break, have a siesta. Breathe. Dream. Allow your body, mind and spirit to heal.

We push ourselves every moment of every day. We have high expectations of what we should accomplish in a day, a week a month. We get exhausted and overwhelmed. And yet we keep going until we are completely burned out. Believe me, I know. I am totally guilty of burning the candle at both ends. Sometimes it seems never ending all the things I must try to accomplish. The responsibilities piling up. Sometimes we just need a break. Even if it is just for an hour or two of yoga; music; breathing; a hot bath; time alone to do what you love to do. Slowly. Mindfully. Relishing the time instead of being under pressure constantly.

This is the gift of the Zombie Toad. Rest. Relax. Take it easy. Breathe. Let it all come to you.

Namaste

King Of Swords ~ Eagle

King Of Swords ~ Eagle: “Have you ever noticed the higher you get, the less there is? Less oxygen, less noise, less greenery, fewer distraction, pretty much less of everything. Yet somehow, up here above the collection of shiny things, the height gives one space to commune with all things. To strip away that which is of little or no importance and shift the focus on what one really needs to thrive in this world of busy, filled upĀ  space and time. Yes, the higher you go, the less there is, but in this lack of things the true wealth of your divine self will be revealed.”

~ Message From The Eagle

“The King Of Swords sits atop the world, and from where he sits, the world appears barren – yet looks can be deceiving. To harness the energy of the King one must learn to still one’s mind and drop away that which is nonessential. For the mind should only be required to focus on one thing at a time. From atop his mountain peak it is easy for the Eagle to focus on his present moment. Up where the air is thin, time ceases to exist. The clouds block out the sun so there is no way of telling night from day; this is a good thing, for it gives the mind one less thing to obsess over, or rather, one less distraction. The King of Swords knows that once his mind is clear and a decision has been made, he must plunge back down to earth, as being this high is only temporary.

The lesson is to leap with purpose, clarity, and precision. Knowing that no matter what, you have the ability to change course, navigate any and all obstacles, and ultimately hit your mark without effort. That is the clear focus of the King and that is the driving energy of the Eagle.”

Business and Career: “From the top of the mountain, can you finally see all of the opportunities that have been desperately trying to get your attention? If not, keep moving further away from the noise until you can, as there is something you are missing that you have been desperately seeking.”

Family and Relationships: “The King Of Swords is a leader; it is his job to see things others cannot see and maintain a certain amount of clarity and focus where other find themselves distracted. this is the energy you need to move into in your current relationship. It is up to you to stay focused on the bigger picture as those around you appear to be struggling.”

Health and Well Being: “The Eagle knows that he cannot stay up where the air is thin forever, and eventually he has to come back down to where his life actually takes place. The same can be said for those who spend more time in their heads than in their physical lives. Your health is not mental pursuit; it is a fully functioning activity that requires all of you to be present.”

Card of the Day Journal Prompts: “Can you hear your true soul voice on the wind and feel the support of the earth through the rock? In what area of your life do you need to change your point of view, in order to get a clearer picture of what is really going on? How can you step into the role of the King of Swords today?”*

~ By Leeza Robertson

Perspective is everything, and we humans are very prone to tunnel vision. We often see what is in front of us through the lens of past experience; we let our fears cast shadows on bright and positive possibilities. We cast aside opportunities that we talk ourselves out of due to lack of self confidence or self worth.

Yet, if we could rise above this, and see how we limit ourselves, we could finally free ourselves to experience things in a whole different way. A positive and open-hearted way. A confident and courageous way. We could even have fun with it. Yes. Fun.

It’s time to take a step back and look at things from a different perspective. Get some distance from your problems and get creative with solutions. Take a little break. Rest, relax and fly free for a while. Ask the Universe to provide help. Reach out to others and admit that you need assistance. Relinquish control.

SurrenderĀ  to the idea that things could go in a totally different direction. Maybe it will feel uncomfortable. Maybe it will scare you a little, or a lot. But, the best part? Things won’t stay the same. You can let go now. Let go and see what comes.

Namaste
