Card: The Emperor – from the Circle of Life Tarot by Maria Distefano.
“In order to realize our plans, we must often recognize our errors and setbacks. This is the path to gaining authority.”
Message from The Faeries: This week we are asking you to be really honest with yourself. We mean, really, really honest with yourself. We want you to be brutally honest with yourself. This means acknowledging both your strengths and weaknesses and honouring who you are. Love every little bit of yourself. Do you think the Emperor doesn’t know who he is? No way! He knows himself inside and out and he is very honest with himself. The reason why he is the Emperor is because he knows his strengths and his weaknesses. He knows the cards to play to get exactly what he wants. He’s reached his level of success not be hereditary – he wasn’t born Emperor – he knew his strengths and he fostered them. He also had to acknowledge his weaknesses and tend to them so that he could become the person he is today – The Emperor.
Some of you have some really amazing dreams for yourselves. You are really making some amazing future for yourselves. We want you to keep dreaming big and to never give up on yourself. It’s the Dalai Lama’s birthday this week, and one of his most famous expressions is: Never Give Up! The Emperor never gave up on his dream of becoming emperor. He did everything he had to do to get there. He knew his capabilities and knew what he could not not do as well. Do you think he did it all on his own? No Way! He had a lot of help along the way. When he needed something done that he didn’t know how to do, he had someone else do it for him. See those two little creatures beside him? Those are his helpers. When he needs help, he is most definitely not afraid to ask for it. If you need to get something done to achieve your dream – and you don’t know how to go about doing it – ask for help!
Know your weaknesses!
Here is an example: Let’s say your dream is to become the next Lady Gaga. First of all…there is only one Lady Gaga – so be yourself. So you want to be a famous singer like her – first of all, can you actually sing? If you don’t know how to sing, the first thing you are going to need to do, is to hire a singing coach. Then, what if you don’t know how to dance – you take dance classes. You can totally become a famous performer like Lady Gaga, but as you can see you are going to need a lot of help along the way, and you can’t ever give up on your dream. The reason why Lady Gaga is where she is at today is because she never gave up on her dreams, she asked for help along the way and she knew her strengths and weaknesses. Maybe she was naturally talented as a musician and singer, but perhaps she was not a good dancer and had to learn to become a good dancer.
We believe in you, and we believe in your dreams, goals and aspirations. We want you to be successful and will help you along your journey. In order for us to help you – in order for anyone to help you – you need to ask for help first. Are you willing to ask for help? Are you willing to admit to yourself when you need help with something? When you can’t do something or you don’t know how, are you going to get someone to assist you or are you going to just give up? NEVER GIVE UP.
So what do you need to do to become the Emperor of your life?
Blessings to you on your journey,
