Dwelling in the truth.
Affirmation of the day: “I stand in the light of the truth.”
Card Meaning: The Soul loves the truth. Be honest with yourself and listen to your inner guidance. Follow it by speaking your truth. To thine own self be true. You radiate the energy of truth to others.
What the Universe wants you to know: There is a place inside of you that ALWAYS knows the truth. Take some time to be still, to discover that genuine place of knowing within. Often the hardest thing about living your truth, is discovering what it is, so it’s important to slow down, be quiet, and listen to the whispers of your soul. If there’s an area of your life where you are not being authentic or where you are not living in integrity, this is the time to make some changes.
Questions to ask yourself/journal about:
~ Is there an area of my life where I am not living in integrity?
~What do I need to do to be in accordance with my deepest truth?
~Is there anyone who isn’t being truthful to me, and do I need to take action regarding the situation?
Padma’s commentary: This is an absolutely amazing card. No matter how much of this work you have been doing, no matter how much you’ve been following along... it all meanings NOTHING unless you have been truly honest with yourself. If you have been avoiding the truth, ignoring it, making up stories about the truth, justifying it, making up excuses for yourself or just not really taking an HONEST LOOK at yourself and your life... nothing is really going to shift for you. It’s not until you actually know who you are, what you’ve been truly doing in your life and most importantly who you’ve been BEING that things can begin transforming. You can’t fix a hole in the wall unless you know it’s there. You can’t treat a disease or disorder properly until you get a diagnoses. You can’t even respond to an email properly unless it’s been read and understood. So why would we “the self” be any different? So really look. Have you been playing small? Maybe you love being a victim and continuously blame your circumstances. Perhaps you’ve been ignoring your health, mental wellness or appearance. Where do you have a principal or value that you are not truly not living by? Where are you saying one thing and doing another. Where are you saying you want something but are not taking the actions of someone who really wants that thing. Today really take the time to LOOK. Drink a glass of water and get centered. Say a prayer and ask your guides (or however you connect with spirit) to actually GUIDE YOU to be able to answer all of the above inquiries. Close your eyes, plant your feet firmly on the floor and put your hands in your lap. Begin to take slow deep breaths, filling up your abdomen. Clear your mind of any other thoughts When the mind begins to wander simply acknowledge the thought and bring your awareness back to the breath. Do this for at least 12 minutes. Next take out your journal and get to work. What came up for you? Be HONEST the only person you would be lying to here is YOURSELF. Happy truth discovering ya’ll
