Thank you @scotthansonstudios for the warm welcome back into the world of photoshoots. ○
I was so close to canceling after a whole night/day of healing. Crying, purging of old beliefs/thought patterns, forgiving myself and others, shifting from old paradigms into new, but then I remembered is the space that all things worth creating are created from.
So open, raw, vulnerable, healing, authentic, old, and new me sat down with the most nurturing, passionate, COMpassionate, skilled photographer, Scott and co-created this.
It's just a SMALL taste of all that came of that shoot, but stay tuned. More to come!
GO LIKE SCOTT'S SHIT!
For this #fullmoon in #aries, I decided to try a beautiful spread by @cardandcompass. I am using the #riderwaite tarot #deck for this reading.
My current situation: #strength
The image on the Strength card is quite telling. It connects with the Magician: it has an infinity symbol on top of her head. But while the Magician combines all suits to manifest through masculine action, Strength subdues and controls by exerting feminine energy. Strength is about controlling your inner lion or those external influences that trigger knee-jerk reactions. It is about “killing them with kindness.” Unconscious influences: #queenofcupstarot
I love the Queen of Cups. She blends with the ocean, she is love and healing personified. I have a desire to heal physically and mentally and this is why the Queen appears here. I believe in the power of love to improve lives.
Where am I heading: #aceofwands
Well,what a great card! It’s the card of energy and new beginnings manifest.
What I need to change: #justicereversed
I admit that resentment is my biggest weakness (after sugar), so I need to change my penchant for resenting people’s actions for a long time!
Where I need to re-focus: #temperance
I could use more patience. But this card is also a reminder of how creative problem-solving helps!
Where I need to relax: #eightofwands
Trust that you are taken care of and that the results you want will appear.
In a society where we laud TOLERANCE and INCLUSION, we've lost the art of healthy debate because disagreement is sometimes misconstrued as INTOLERANCE and EXCLUSION.
I used to get emotionally TRIGGERED when people had strong convictions about things I didn't because I was raised in a society where TRUTH is considered RELATIVE.
It made me QUESTION what I believed which was uncomfortable at first.
Now that I have my own CONVICTIONS, I’m learning to embrace healthy conflict.
I'm passionate about sharing IDEAS without feeling I need to impose them on others because I think it's best when everyone thinks for themselves.
I can't imagine my life without HEALTHY DISAGREEMENT because it’s brought so much value to my life and has helped me REFINE my thinking, shown me where I need to GROW, and improved my RELATIONSHIPS.
Now when I encounter conflict with people in my life, I embrace it.
Of course, I distinguish healthy conflict from unhealthy conflict. Healthy conflict is the exploration of differing viewpoints between people who are patient and willing to listen in pursuit of truth and growth. This takes humility and self-control.
This is very different from unhealthy conflict, which can involve namecalling, gaslighting, and putting words in another person’s mouth to push an agenda and establish control.
Do you embrace healthy conflict? Why or why not?
Daily Message: 4 of Cups & 10 of Cups
The first things that popped into my mind when I pulled the cards was: 4 + 10 = 14 - the #Temperance card.
If we were to trust that we would have to consider this is a very alchemical, healing full 🌕. We would have to admit that things are happening according to Divine Wisdom & our interventions in our own lives are somehow irrelevant. We would have to forgive ourselves & admit that we are made of both light & darkness, wisdom & stupidity, kindness & selfishness & on that note, nothing we generate or experience is poison or medicine per-se. And that it's all just a question of finding the right measure: a highly personal & hard to define thing in itself. Especially when it comes to emotions, where the "right measure" requires the highest form of wisdom, self-awareness, experience & self-control to achieve & maintain.
This card combination says it's ok to find balance by creating a bit of quiet in your inner waters. It's ok to shut down & to say no to any invitation to connection. This is the necessary space between breaths; the moment self-refection.
This comes with a clear purpose today. The purpose of this meditation is connecting with an emotional ideal, the template & icon of what happiness looks to you. And, of course, what the right measure of what ingredients will generate your desired outcome of "happiness". The reflection required by the 4 is necessary because the 10 represents the ending of a cycle/phase. That means that emotionally, the full moon illuminates the results of what we've been working on emotionally since March. Reflecting on how we feel, where we came from, where we are going is a must. If we're not happy it's time to stop trying to win by fixing the world, society or our loved ones. It's time to go inward & ask ourselves what went wrong, what do we need to re-address & how can we take responsibility for our own happiness once again.
The hard & healing aspect of today is admitting where/when we fell prey to worshipping a product of our fantasy over the reality of Love.
Today asks us to grow up & stop loving Idols.
Because Idols will never be able to love us back.
🌻 Ace Suit 🌻
Working through @lionharts' #thenakedheartchallenge this month has really forced me to face my regrets and come to terms with my past. In facing them, I became motivated to give myself a fresh start. This is what sparked my Ace Suit Spread. I used #death as my Signifactor, and laid down each of the aces to represent the different aspects of my life, and then I drew a card for each for how to best go about this #newbeginning.
♥️ Cups – Love and Relationships ♥️
Selflove Level unlocked💕 Rejoice! You are your own person🎉! You're free! Before #thedevil even knew it, you've cut loose the ties holding you, and have reclaimed the keys to your love and happiness. You've learned that love first comes from the self – now trust this newfound freedom and enjoy!
♠️ Swords - Health ♠️
Be grounded. Eat your 🌳 – there’s an abundance of them. And do grounding exercises – nothing hardcore – focus on bringing flow into your body. And listen to your gut. It’s smarter than your brainy senses. And most importantly of all – dress well, eat well. #foodiesunite#9ofpentacles
♦️ Pentacles - Finances♦️
Trial and error. You’ve tried the luxe and you’ve had the frugal. Now balance. Be free flowing – indulge a little here, skimp out a little there. Finance is a flow (don’t be rigid). If you want to live well and maintain financial independence at the same time, you gotta know how to be flexible. #temperance
♣️ Wands – Drive ♣️
At your deepest level, you’re close to becoming who you truly are. Don’t stop here. Keep going. Draw from the depths of your potential, and take stock of what you’ve achieve – You Are Capable. Repeat after me, “I AM CAPABLE.” Now go get that future!😎 #theworld#shadowscapetarot#joiedevivretarot#tarot#selflove
What are u obsessing about?
What are you so desperately hanging on to?
Everything that is occurring right now is for your growth. Divine healing is at hand and you need to surrender to this. Very strong Capricorn & Sagittarius energy. I feel some of you are so used to living a certain way that now that you’re being called to step out of the life you created for your survival you are totally freaking out. You could be jeopardizing your own healing subconsciously by continuing to do things that you know don’t resonate with you any longer. It’s time to let go of everything that doesn’t speak to your soul. Time to cut out that man that doesn’t deserve you. Cut off those friends that only call you when they need something. Quit that job that makes you dread waking up to work everyday. Stop that negative chatter that runs thru your head throughout the day. Be aware of what keeps popping up because that is what needs to be healed and released. Any mistakes you made are in the PAST. That is no longer you. Don’t continue to punish yourself for things you did while in survival mode. It’s also important all aspects of your life are in balance. Get your life in order. The universe is trying to help you, stop resisting. ❤️
YOU are in control of your life NOT fear! Decide to take that step forward (I saw skipping so be joyful!) with the wonder and curiosity of a child. Don’t see it as this scary thing. See it as an adventure! Keep this mentality of you don’t know where you’re going but you know it’s going to be great! It’s time. 🦋🌙
