Tarot Contemplation – Nine of Cups

9cups

This is what we all know as the “wish card”, and one of the most positive signs in the Tarot.  That is, what you are hoping for, wishing for, dreaming about, is most likely to be yours in a general sense, but also for a brief period of time.  You’ve come into a moment of good luck, happiness, bliss and sensual pleasures.  If you had a question on your mind when you looked at this card, then the answer is a likely “yes,”  though perhaps not carved in stone.  Things are looking up on the work front … things that have been stalled are finally moving forward in May.  If you’ve been job hunting, the job you’ve been really hoping for is finally coming through.  Your relationships are at an all-time high today.  If you’re looking for a partner, get out there and mingle and enjoy the people that cross your path.  You’re feeling in the pink, so just have fun.  Your diligence with your finances is now paying off, too, because you can now see that things are gonna be all right.  Hooray!  Positive affirmations and visualizations inspire you to trust yourself more.  Ride this wave … dream big and take proactive steps to manifest your heart’s desires today.

Tarot Contemplation – Seven of Swords

7swords

Watch your Six.  This card tells you that you are dealing with someone with less than ethical intentions.  If your Spidey senses are telling you that someone might be spying on you, or trying to frame you for something serious at work, you might be right.  Conversely, if you feel tempted to pry into someone else’s life (and parents, we are not including you keeping a close eye out on the kids), resist the temptation because everyone deserves privacy.  In competitions, such as vying for a job or that Friday night poker game, be aware that there might be some cheating going on.  So, keep aware and present in the moment and you won’t be caught off guard and you won’t need to worry … even if someone is out to get you.  At work, your work conduct and work product are being scrutinized, so continue to do your best in dotting your “i’s” and crossing your “t’s”.  Stay away from water cooler chit-chat.  Nurturing trust at this time is tantamount to keeping the balance.  As for your finances, today is not a good day to play the Lotto or go to the casino … and remember, buying into that expensive spiritual program doesn’t buy you spiritual integrity or bolster your self-esteem, so keep wary of those flashy New Age programs everyone seems to be talking about.  Doing your own research, your way, is the way to continue learning and growing spiritually right now.

Tarot Contemplation – Knight of Pentacles

Your finances and money situation are looking better.  Well-thought out ideas to improve procedures at work will be received with interest so long as your innovations maintain the overall integrity of established protocols.  The impression that you are level-headed and dependable will serve you well.  Income is likely to roll your way from unexpected sources, such as a lottery win, a raise or an inheritance.  When that happens, don’t spend it all in one place; rather, be smart.  Don’t quit your day job. Sock your windfall away while keeping to the plan of moderating expenses.  Don’t spend more than you can afford to lose.  You will see improvement in your relationships if you are responsible about your obligations and are willing to work things out when there is a snag.  Remember that it is not always about you.  Changes are on the rise, so keep to the Middle Path.  It’s all about small positive moves to bring about the changes that you can live with and make permanent.

A Problematic Trend Amongst “the Awakened”: Back-Door Ego Disorder

Asian-hippie-girl

From Science and Metaphysics.com

Back-Door Ego Disorder is an Spiritual Transmitted Disease that arises when people obtain too much spiritual knowledge without having done enough self-work. It is a product of too much information and not enough wisdom.

When talking with people who have this disorder (even when you are talking spiritual philosophy), you may notice that they want to put more emphasis on their correctness then on the actual issue at hand. They want you to KNOW that they know what they are talking about.

In their minds, they think they care about the truth. But in reality, they care about being recognized as caring about the truth. Similar to how the Pharisees in the Bible would do good works and pray in public to get peer-approval, people with this STD like to be seen as being spiritual, wise, and knowledgeable.

Their intentions are to enhance their own self-image, not to actually reach higher consciousness. If they DO want to reach higher consciousness, it is only so that they can be seen in the eyes of others as being more evolved.

In reality, these people are dealing with a lack of self-worth, and maybe even self-hatred. By receiving external confirmation from others, they feel the validation and sense of purpose that they currently lack in their lives.

For people with Back-Door Ego Disorder, ‘spirituality’ is just another way their ego to try to prove its superiority over others.

This is a spiritual disease that ultimately stems from a combination of improper spiritual practice and a feeling of deep inadequacy and insecurity.

Tarot Contemplation – Five of Cups

Whatever, or wherever, your heart looks-to, you create.  Do not cry over spilt milk, as the saying goes, and focus on what was; rather, look to what you still have and what you can do.  So, what are you going to choose to focus on that will benefit you?  Do not allow delays to hinder your progress.  This is a time when you can elect to go around an obstacle in your path, so continue to act proactively … but not pushy.  If you had work on your mind when you saw this card come up, then this sign might mean that you are in the wrong job or line of work.  It’s time to consider your options.  If you are inquiring about a relationship, perhaps things between you and your partner are drawing to a close … give yourself the time and space needed to work through this possibility.  Perhaps all is not lost after all.  And, stop worrying about things like money or your health so much.  Remember how the Law of Attraction works:  worry will attract the very thing you are worrying about avoiding.  If you have been following these cards, you know that your daily efforts to make necessary adjustments are paying off.  A positive attitude about YOU is important today.

Crows are no bird-brains: Neurobiologists investigate neuronal basis of crows’ intelligence — ScienceDaily

Scientists have long suspected that corvids — the family of birds including ravens, crows and magpies — are highly intelligent. Now, neurobiologists have demonstrated how the brains of crows produce intelligent behavior when the birds have to make strategic decisions.

Tarot Contemplation – Eight of Cups

Now that you’ve allowed yourself some space and rested, it’s time to move on.  You’ve come to accept the realization that something … a relationship or a situation … is no longer working for you.  ‘Ua ōla loko i ke aloha … Love gives life within, so you must love yourself to maintain a healthy body, mind and spirit.  Don’t be sad that you have to let go because this is necessary for your highest good.  Trust your gut and know that better times are ahead for you.  Make the choice to close the door so that another opens to you.  Don’t let the security of a regular paycheck tie you to a dead-end job.  Things will not change or improve unless you act.  You can do it … that is, you can manifest, bring into your reality, what you are seeking to feel more fulfilled and happier with your life.  If inner reflection reveals finally that a long-term relationship is no longer workable, find the courage to end it now because there will never be a good moment to do it.  If you’re dating, don’t act rashly and give yourself time to think more about what you seek.  If you’re still resting your spirit and still in the energy vibe of yesterday’s need for rest, then find depth and inner wisdom in solitude and in listening to the small still voice inside your heart.  Don’t allow stress to gnaw at you and cause health problems.

Scientists Have Been Using a Flawed Method to Diagnose Pain 

For many years, neuroscientists believed they had identified a specific pattern of brain activity acting as a kind of “signature” for pain in the brain. Recently this so-called “pain matrix” has been called into question, and a new study by British researchers may have shattered the myth once and for all.

Thinking Humanity: New Research Confirms That Spending Time In The Wood Is Great For Your Brain

There are new studies every year that suggest that escaping the city and getting back to nature is good for your health. On the surface, this seems like a pretty obvious situation, but new research from Stanford University is showing that getting outdoors isn’t just good for the soul – it is great for your brain.
