Card: 3 The Empress – from The Enchanted Tarot by Amy Zerner and Monte Farber.
“Have an open and sympathetic heart and your wishes will be provided for. Be aware of your contact: mental, emotional and physical, with the ever-new beauty, sensuality, fertility and peace of our earthly garden paradise, and you will not want for these things in your own life. Creative inspiration and productivity are available to you if you will try and bring heaven down to earth. Exert your power with a loving hand.”
Message from the Faeries: This week we are expanding upon the message from last week. We talked a bit about reality and the creation of reality. The Empress has shown up to teach you something else about the nature of the world you live in.
The Empress is in full control of her surroundings. She has fully mastered the creation of her own reality. She lives in a world that is full of beauty and love. Her world is just and fair. Her world is fully balanced and harmonious. She worked really hard to make this reality. She did so by being diligent and not allowing anything into her surroundings that didn’t line up to her vision of how the world ought to be.
The Empress realized that there were many illusions, belief systems, ideologies and people that didn’t share some of her core values. She saw that there were many distractions and obstacles put in place to block her from living in the world that she wanted to live in. She discovered that in order to live how she wanted to live, she would have to build her own kingdom. Her kingdom only allows in people that share her vision of how the world was meant to be.
We don’t expect you to master the art of creating your own kingdom, and we don’t even expect you to have the skills to create your own reality, but we have aspirations for you. We hope that you challenge yourself at this time (now more than ever!) to learn how to bend and shape your reality to how you want it to be. This doesn’t require magic or any special gifts or talents. It really is quite simple to do.
Here are some of the things you can do think to bend and shape reality:
-if you are in an environment that isn’t what you like or feel comfortable, change it or leave. If you think these aren’t options, you might want to consider changing how you think or feel about your environment.
-if the news is getting you down, stop watching it. It doesn’t make you a more ignorant person or a less informed person if you don’t watch the news. Most of what is shown on the news are distractions and half-truths. If you really want to know about something, do your own investigations and research.
-if you aren’t liking the energies in your space, create your own energies through smudging, dancing, singing, meditation, communicating peacefully, etc.
-if you don’t like any of the current belief systems, you can choose to have none or you can make your own. You can do whatever you want in this regard. Your spirit and your intellect are yours to shape however you want to shape.
-if you don’t like your thoughts or feelings, change them!
-if you don’t feel like your friends or family are supporting you or being kind enough to you, make new ones! BUT – ask yourself first – are you being a good friend or family member?
If any of these suggestions seem too complicated for you or out of reach, we have some more simple suggestions: only listen to music that makes you feel good; only watch tv that makes you feel enlightened or inspired; be creative and make something; make a new friend; go for walks in nature; write a book; change your diet; read a book that teaches you something new; get some exercise.
We love you.
