Accept the power of our thoughts and how they shape our reality. Tarot & Tea, XVII Thought
This is the energy of the day, and how to embrace and make the most of it.
Thoughts becomes things. Choose the good ones. As we embrace the Universal Laws, we begin to recognize the power of our intent. But today we are asked to explore and question whether our conscious and sub-conscious minds are in harmony.
Do we show one face to the world, while our thoughts remain dark and murky? Smiling on the outside, while crying on the inside. How can we achieve harmony and bring both to the light? Instead of focusing on what you can’t control, step back and move your thoughts to what you can control.
It’s the old ‘world peace begins with peace within.’ We can rush around trying to make others become what we want. But that’s hard work and really hasn’t much chance of success. So, today, question where you can show up as what you wish to see more of in the world.
If that’s peace, be peaceful.
Get off social media, turn off the TV and find a place to be quiet. Meditate, contemplate or pray. Light a candle or walk in nature. Breathe deeply and find that peace.
If it’s love, do some loving acts. Refuse to be dragged into gossip or mean talk. Look for the light in everyone. Focus thoughts on the best aspects of people. Do some random acts of kindness. With Valentine’s Day coming, it’s super easy to find inspiration.
Or perhaps you’d like the world to be more abundant? Then, gift to others: your time, energy, love. Cook a meal for a friend. Listen to someone whose hurting. Make a cup of tea for the guy repairing your plumbing. Take some muffins to the homeless. What are you doing to make the world more abundant? Let me know in the comments below.
And while I’m on the subject of tea, today’s Tea to go with our Tarot is Rosehip. A herbal blend from rosehips and hibiscus flowers, this is one of my favorites. High in Vitamin C, and naturally sweet and uplifting. And so pretty…pink tea for sipping and savoring. Always puts me into the mood for happy thoughts.
There’s lots of ways we can show up in power. And it all stems from our thoughts.
‘I think, therefore I am’ sums up today’s energy. It means if we question our existence, the very act of doubting and questioning is in fact proof that we do exist. Quantum physics suggests that the world doesn’t exist until we focus our attention on it. So, let’s focus on the good stuff and make that our world. Makes sense?
