Nine Of Arrows: “Dedication”

Card Description: “A figure clad in skin robes decorated with patterns of leaves, stands in a clearing amid the Wildwood. She is holding a bow as though it were an instrument, the back of the bow cradled in her arms and an arrow held against the string as if it were the bow on a fiddle. Around her, repulsed by an invisible shield, are another eight arrows.”

Card Meaning: “The spiritual warrior dedicates their arrows of inspiration by playing the bow as an instrument of summoning. The inner oath helps keep one on a balanced footing by dedicating skills to a greater good.”

Reading Points: “To heed the calling to dedicate one’s life to any skill, spiritual path, belief system or philosophy requires sincerity, self-discipline, and hard work. It is a sacred summoning that requires time and effort. For those who hear the calling and become spiritual warriors and protectors of the land, responsibility and sacrifice are also required. To deny that the human species has had a negative effect on the planet’s climate and atmosphere seems totally redundant. The growing awareness of our individual impact on the ecosystem may take on greater significance in the future. We cannot predict what effect our avarice and rapacious exploitation of the land will eventually produce, bu the dedicated defender of the soil must protect the living legacy we leave for our children. To teach by example the value of respecting other’s beliefs and philosophies in honouring the land is immensely important. Sometimes a simple daily ritual reminds us of the oath we have taken to conserve and protect the environment. Dedicate yourself to the task of preserving the land and be a part of making a difference.”*

To me she represents the Devic or Elemental realm… how her hair ends in feathers and leaves cover her scarf… her robes blending with the growth patterns of the trunk of the tree. She is slightly forlorn, but also very focused on the task at hand. She is using her arrows in the most magical way; as instruments of peace and scared service, not as weapons in the traditional sense. She wishes only to heal, to assist, and to send her intention out far and wide knowing as she does so, she is capable of making a difference.

Just as each and every one of us can make a difference as we change our ways. As we choose healthy lifestyle choices for ourselves, our families and our Sacred Mother, Gaia. We choose sustainable resources, we choose not to use plastic, and we choose to reduce, reuse, and recycle. We can choose to plant a garden or a tree and nurture it free of chemicals. We can choose to support local farmers and businesses. We can choose to walk, bike or take public transport or to share transportation with others.

We can choose to make a difference. A big difference.

And this difference is made one person at a time, one choice at a time. Coming together as the collective to say NO where the governments do not bother. Where the laws do not support the environment or the people. We can use our leverage as a whole to put companies out of business by simply not purchasing from them. But learning to grow our own crops. By not stepping foot in the big box stores… or at least slowly weaning ourselves off. By choosing experiences over possessions. By refusing to fill our living spaces with clutter and stuff. By teaching our children that a plastic toy that lasts a few min at hand and a millenia in the landfill is simply not an option.

We can set an example by being different, choosing differently and living by our own code. And encouraging others to do the same. Teaching the children to do the same. Building strong communities.

Because no one is going to make these changes for us. And by the time they catch up it will most likely be too late.

Choose today, right now, to do something differently every day. Bring your own bags. Bring your own cup to the coffee shop. Shop at the local consignment shop. Donate what you are not using to someone who needs it. Plan a garden, even if it means a few pots on your patio. Plant a tree. Do something that makes a difference. And do it with ease, grace and the joy of helping to heal the damage that has been done. The damage that we can no longer sustain, make excuses for or tolerate.

For our Great Mother.

And so it is

Namaste

Three Of Abundance: “Your passions will lead you to your Divine life purpose. Do what you love, and have confidence in your talent. Learn everything there is to know about your interests by taking classes, getting a mentor, or teaming up with like minded people. Allow your creativity to soar!”

“This is the card of great skill, talent, and craftsmanship. Within you is the ability to create amazing works if only you follow your passions and let your heart lead you. Do what you love! Learn everything there is to know on the topic. Take seminars, get training from a wonderful mentor, or complete a degree from a university or trade school. The key point here is that you do something that makes you happy.

It can be very emotionally rewarding to work with others. Teamwork and commitment to a project you believe in brings the recognition and compensation you are seeking.

Additional Meanings Of This Card: Financial rewards for doing what you love to do. Making a satisfying living in a creative profession. Confidence in your talent. Teaching others a skill. Winning an award for your work.”*

Here we are reminded again that the key to the manifestation of the life of our dreams lies in our passion. Our life purpose is also linked to this passion and we will open doors to opportunity when we are doing what we love to do.

When we are doing what we love, everything changes. Time stands still. Our confidence is increased. We raise our vibration through our positive and uplifted emotions. We open our hearts. Our chakras become aligned. We open to the Divine. We attract more of what we love. A perfect cycle.

If you are hesitant, find others who love to do what you love. Surround yourself with a non-competitive (unless you thrive on competition) group of like minded Souls who will help to open you up to the numerous possibilities available to you. Find a teacher or mentor who can increase your awareness, skill set and knowledge of your interests. Allow yourself to experiment without judgement, have fun. When we are too hard on ourselves we shut down the creative process!

Get out of your comfort zone! Turn off the TV and get out there and do something! It is way too easy these days to live vicariously through others, that is what reality television shows are created for, to give us the sense that we are doing more than we really are! When we stop being the spectator and start doing the activity, we stretch our brains, building new neural pathways and opening up our minds to new levels of awareness. This is expansion. You have to live it, first hand.

Take one step today towards your passion. Only you know what makes your heart beat faster. Only you know what you have a special knack for. Only you know when time stands still for you. Take action towards that and the Universe will meet you in ways beyond your wildest dreams.

Take a leap of faith, even if it looks like a baby step today.

Namaste
