Many of you who read frequently here may recall that I dream very vividly and often. I have not written about my dreams in some time….but I have had many. These past few days I have had some very profound dreams…so I took to my “Dream Cards” by Strephon Kaplan-Williams to bring you a message from the dreamland today.
The card I pulled is: (this is interesting considering Tuesdays post on “Destiny”!)
DIRECTION – Guiding, Destiny, Fulfilling (Central Image – A Bridge crosses a great chasm)
Message: Direction is when we value somewhere or something greater than life itself. Direction is not simply choosing goals and fulfilling them. All goals deceive, whether one is climbing ambition’s ladder, nurturing a family, or championing a major cause of the people. While these need commitment, they do not transcend the specifics of life. The only commitment that gives ultimate purpose is following Source energy to the end of your days, no matter where it leads you. Your Task Is: Ask if you have a purpose so valuable you can commit your life to it.
Snake: Only the choosing are chosen, only the chosen are choosing. Seek the source of what challenges you.
Door: Clearing obstacles is the first step in finding purpose. Learn from everything that does not go your way until you no longer want only your way.
Suitcase: The true cost of a journey is to give up what you don’t want to let go of. Hold on tightly, then choose to give.
Cards: Fortunes are not in the cards, but in the choices of life. Choose with certainty and never look back.
Stairs: If one has more than one direction in life, they tend to cancel each other out. For the moment, choose the most central direction.
Dog: To be led means to make another’s direction our own. Give up self-desire and be guided.
Car: To keep moving is not in itself a direction but a distraction. Stop yourself long enough to choose where you are going.
Lightening: The journey combines what happens to us with what we do about it. Act more from inner knowing than anxiety.
from The Desk of MarDrag:
So, I find it very profound and interesting that, of all the cards in this deck, this is the one that found its way to my fingers today. There must be “something in the air” regarding Destiny and our Purpose in life. I was inspired to write Tuesday’s post on Destiny rather than do the Affirmation Cards I usually do. So, the Universe is offering us a message to take to heart, to consider, and to ponder.
From the symbols and notations on this card, I gather that it is becoming more important for us to take a look at where our lives are and where they are going, and strive to follow our Destinies and find our true Purposes. The world needs that of us right now. Everything is in bad shape. But, we can all contribute to making it better, simply by following that Destiny and living our true lives….because just by doing that, we add to the balance of the energy that needs to be righted. This is THE best thing we can do right now, to be who we are truly supposed to be and do what we are meant to do with our lives. No matter what it is or how big or small….if we are in balance in our own little corners, then all those cells of balance touch, connect and merge and create a larger balance that helps offset the negative. I cannot help but feel these messages hold great weight.
The Central Image speaks of following Source energy no matter where it leads. (And that “Source” is whatever it means to YOU). And….that our true Purpose is one that is so valuable to us that we commit our life to it. What could that be…to YOU? Seek the source of what challenges you, and find out.
I love the line, “Learn from everything that does not go your way until you no longer want only your way” because it reminds us that, while our individual tapestry is busily being woven, there is still the greater picture to be considered, and how our tapestry fits into that Great Tapestry. Perhaps now, more than ever, we need to reflect on this. And there are lessons to be learned from that which does not go our way from which we sill see, there is another way.
The rest of the messages tell us to slow down, stop even, to listen and pay attention so we can choose with clarity where we are going, instead of tumbling head on into the future. Let go of old tethers that keep you stuck, ask for guidance and it will come, then choose a direction and know that you will be guided by your inner wisdom and knowing. It is time to trust that Wiser Self within us all and act from Inner Knowing rather than Anxiety. Fear, Guilt and Anxiety lead us nowhere….but Inner Wisdom and Knowing…..which we ALL have….leads us always in the right….Direction.
