Keywords

Guardian, Protector, Savior, Activist, Honorable, Integral, Selfless, Honest

Key Phrases

– A person of noble qualities
– Ordinary people who do extraordinary acts
– A person who lies cannot be trusted
– Put another’s wellbeing before your own at this time
– Accord others with respect and dignity
– Avoid gossip
– An opportunity for redemption
– Give a second chance
– Altruism or wounded ego?

Card Meaning

The Hero represents someone we all admire for their noble qualities, their courage, and willingness to champion and rescue the weak and vulnerable.

In the past, the hero would ride in and save a village from thieves and villains, rescue damsels in distress, and battle against injustice. In the present, they are doctors who work to save lives in lands ravaged by war and disease. They are environmentalists who place themselves in harm’s way in order to save the forest, the oceans, and the animals that dwell within. They are the soldiers, the firemen, the paramedics and police – all of them ordinary people, who serve and protect, and often put their own lives at risk in order to save the lives of others. The hero could be the mother who jumps out of a burning building in order to save her child’s life, the man who dives in front of a car in order to knock another person out of the way, or the man who risks drowning himself to rescue another from rushing floodwaters.

In modern times, the hero is a guardian, protector, savior, activist, environmentalist, and so much more. They serve without question. They serve for little or no reward. They serve simply because it is the right and honorable thing to do. They are ordinary people who perform extraordinary feats.

When the Hero appears in your reading you are being asked to embrace the code, to act selflessly for the greater good. It is time to be the best person you can be, to resist pettiness and behavior that makes you less than you could be. We cannot all perform heroic feats, nor are we all meant to. However, we can choose to hold ourselves to a higher standard and treat all those we meet with dignity, kindness, and compassion.

Featured Card of the Day – Faith – Dreams of Gaia by Ravynne Phelan

Posted on Updated on

Artist: Ravynne Phelan

Website: http://www.RavynnePhelan.com

Keywords

Faith, Self-Belief, Confidence, Divine Connection, Trust, Serenity, Surrender

Key Phrases

– Faith is beautiful
– Self-belief helps you to overcome
– Self-belief and faith inspire confidence
– Doubt breeds mistakes
– Cruel words can do lasting harm
– Do not give up because of past mistakes
– Be kind and supportive
– Set yourself believable goals
– You matter. You are enough
– You are not alone
– Do not be unkind because others have been unkind to you
– Take delight in compliments

Card Meaning

To have faith – the seventh of the influence cards – is a beautiful thing. It inspires a feeling of serentiy that is unshakable. With faith comes a level of self-confidence that sees you capable of overcoming all that life throws at you. To have self-belief gives you confidence when facing new and challenging situations. When out in a social setting, you are comfortable to be yourself. Having self-belief allows you to enjoy life more because you are less troubled by insecurity.

With faith in yourself and your abilities, you stand a greater chance of having a successful career, you are more confident in taking well-considered risks, you are healthier and happier because you are under less pressure , and emotional and mental stress. In turn, your relationships with others will be better, also.

On the other hand, a lack of self-belief or faith can be seen in our moods, the way we speak about ourselves, our body language, and actions. Without faith, and belief in self, every decision can become an almost excruciating process.

If you do not believe that you will succeed or do well, then, sadly, there is an increased chance that you will not.  Doubt and a lack of faith breeds mistakes, procrastination, and self-sabotage. But know this, you are not unimportant. You are somebody. You are unique. You have gifts. You have strengths. You have talents. You are bright with potential, and if you believe in yourself you will shine.

A little belief can go a long way. With faith and self-belief, you can accomplish great things…even miracles.

Featured Card of the Day – 7 of Air – Dreams of Gaia by Ravynne Phelan

Posted on Updated on

Artist: Ravynne Phelan

Website: http://www.RavynnePhelan.com

Keywords

Spirituality, Religion, Politics, Personal Dogma, Atheism, Fundamentalism, Indoctrination, Kindness

Key Phrases

– It’s not what we believe, but how we believe
– Lift others up
– Does what you believe make you kinder?
– Are you willing to lose another for your beliefs?
– There are many ways, just not your way
– Educate, don’t indoctrinate
– Seek a kind approach
– Moderate fundamentalist beliefs

Card Meaning

The Seven of Air symbolizes the realms of spiritual belief, religious practice, and personal dogma, and the influence they have upon how we perceive the world around us. Spiritual belief can make our lives feel complete, make us healthier, happier, kinder, and more compassionate people, and yet it can also place us at odds with others and start wars, both global and personal. It can bring peace, and a healthy sense of wellbeing, or it can literally place you in harm’s way and tear your world and life to pieces. Spiritual belief, in the form of religion, has throughout the centuries been one of the root causes of almost all human conflict, and it is still one of the leading causes of bloodshed in our modern world.

There are many who subscribe to the belief that embracing a spiritual path is different to following one of the many ‘organized’ religions. But consider this: whether you subscribe to a religion, or have a more organic spiritual ideology, or even subscribe to Atheism, all involve following a personal dogma that can be orthodox and rigid or expansive and accepting. To believe in a religion, to embrace a spiritual path, or none at all, is no different, energetically, than believing that one political party is better than another, or that a vegan diet is better than one that includes meat and animal products, or that your favorite sports team is the best sports team. All forms of belief can lead to peace and a healthy sense of wellbeing, or to extreme and fundamentalist behavior. All paths can be born of independent knowledge and understanding, indoctrination, or a mix of both. Each choice, even the choice not to believe in the Divine, requires that you believe in something, even if that something is that a belief in anything other than our physical reality is a symptom of a deranged mind.

Featured Card of the Day – 10 of Earth – Dreams of Gaia by Ravynne Phelan

– Everything is coming together
– Move through life with surety
– Understand your place and purpose
– Do not be daunted by change
– Strength gained from experience

This love, respect, and trust are a reflection of what is felt within, and inspire a sense of wellbeing and connectedness that enables one to move through life with both grace and ease.

The Ten of Earth is an affirming card. If it appears in your reading it signifies a time of reward.

At this time, be sure to remove all masks and show your true self to the world. Authenticity is a quality admired by many.

Live your life undaunted by change, also, and know that you have been made stronger by your past experiences. Now, whatever the challenge might be, you will find your center and move forward in a fearless manner.

Featured Card of the Day – Union – Dreams of Gaia by Ravynne Phelan

Posted on Updated on

Artist: Ravynne Phelan

Website: http://www.ravynnephelan.com

Keywords

Wholeness, Marriage, Unity, Connection, Integration, Harmony, Alignment, Peace

Key Phrases

– Unity and wholeness
– Harmony arises when we are in alignment
– You have unlimited potential
– A path that marries science and spirituality
– Duality creates separation
– The marriage of mind, body and soul
– All is connected
– Complete self-acceptance
– Do not dominate or be submissive
– At the center is the void
– You are a temple. Worship within
– Fear and need – cornerstones of dependency

Card Meaning

The Union card symbolizes unity and wholeness. It represents our relationship with our self and our relationship with the world around us. It represents the harmony that arises when we are in alignment within, and with both the seen and unseen worlds around us. To achieve this centered state is our fifth reason for being.

Who am I? What is my purpose? Why am I here? Self-inquiry puts our feet upon the path to wholeness. It is part of our life quest, and only in asking questions and seeking answers do we become whole. It is a journey that manifests in self-discovery.

We come into the world innocent and pure. While in the womb, our soul is still as one with the Source of All – the Void – the Cosmic Womb from which all came to be and all will return. Our soul remembers that connection. The soul remembers its unlimited potential. It remembers that it is whole and divine. This knowledge, and all that we experienced before taking our first breath in this life, resides within our unconscious mind, where it could motivate and guide us, if it were not for the fact that from birth we experience a life that is conflicting in every way.

The Union card represents the bringing together of many aspects of our world that we have been taught to separate from the whole. All is connected – as above, so below. The universe in which we dwell is multifaceted and whole.  The earth upon which we dwell is multifaceted and whole. All that dwells beside us upon this blue-green earth is multifaceted and whole. We, humanity, are multifacted and whole and we have a symbiotic relationship with that whole. As the dominant species on the planet, the very health of the whole planet is dependent on our own health and unity as a species, and so we must reconnect and integrate and become one with all once more.

Featured Card of the Day – Abundance – Dreams of Gaia by Ravynne Phelan

Posted on Updated on

Artist: Ravynne Phelan

Website: http://www.RavynnePhelan.com

Keywords

Abundance, Consciousness, Giving, Receiving, Energy, Love, Appreciation

Key Phrases

– Abundance is a state of plenty
– Abundance is a feeling
– Abundance surrounds you
– Have faith and conviction
– Complete trust is required
– Your ‘rainy day’ is today
– Determine your goals and reasons, and set intentions
– A state of contentment not influenced by external factors
– Relax and enjoy yourself
– Generosity ripples outwards
– The more you give, the more you receive
– Appreciate and be grateful

Card Meaning

What is Abundance? Abundance is defined as a state of plenty. When the Abundance card appears, it signifies a feeling of abundance, of appreciation, that opens you to the abundance that surrounds you. In turn, this feeling gives rise to an abundance consciousness. A person with an abundance consciousness is one who is always hopeful, seeks a fair and equal exchange of energy, and sees potential and opportunity in all experiences.

To create and open ourselves to abundance and embrace an abundance consciousness is our seventh reason for being, and, potentially, one of the more challenging purposes, because it requires absolute faith and conviction. It requires complete trust.

Abundance consciousness is a state of contentment and fulfillment that is not influenced by external factors. Regardless of whether the experience was good or bad, one with an abundance consciousness sees the whole experience and learns from the whole experience.

Abundance embodies a way of living that does not change, regardless of whether you have more or less in your life. Abundance cannot be earned, given, bestowed, or taken away; it is contentment born of fulfillment and appreciation. Abundance means to see and appreciate the wealth that surrounds us – not just the material wealth, but the abundance of energy, love, nature, spirituality, food, enjoyment, and time. Abundance is a perpetual state of evolution, expansion, and growth that is mirrored in all that surrounds us. If you do not see these things, you may be restricting the flow of abundance. Perhaps you have blockages in place – beliefs that have you seeing a lack or scarcity, and embracing an idea that everything is limited or will run out.

Abundance is about giving and receiving in equal measure, rather than controlling, taking, possessing, or hoarding. Being generous, and appreciative, and grateful will help you to experience abundance. Being loving, and giving love will help you receive love. Being respectful will help bring respect to you. Giving with the right intentions for the right reasons, sharing what you have without fear, rather than dwelling on what you do not have, these will help bring wealth to you. Remember, however, abundance about giving simply because you can and want to, not because you want something in exchange.

Featured Card of the Day – Self – Dreams of Gaia by Ravynne Phelan

Posted on Updated on

Artist: Ravynne Phelan

Website: http://www.RavynnePhelan.com

Keywords

I Am, Identity, Self-Realization, Self-Manifestation, Center, Peace, Acceptance

Key Phrases

– Establish a unique and individual identity
– Be free of definitions and labels
– You have unlimited potential
– How has your past shaped you?
– Identity is fluid and changing
– Who you are is for you to determine
– Are you trying to fit with the wrong crowd?
– Know who you are
– Who do you wish to become?
– A path of loving expansion
– Let go of a herd mentality
– Think for yourself

Card Meaning

The Self card is the sixth of the reasons for being. It signifies the importance of establishing a unique and individual identity that is free of definitions and labels and embraces unlimited potential.

There are elements within every society that do all they can to quash the independent, the creative, the authentic, because they profit, in one way or another, from doing so. Independent thinkers, creative types, those who defy tradition and convention – and who perceive what is ethical and moral and what is legal as being two different beasts – are people that threaten the status quo. As a result, we are indoctrinated. We are told how to think, told what is normal, told what is beautiful and acceptable, what is right, and what is wrong. Those who disagree, or seek to be independent, or who just do not fit with society’s definition of normal and beautiful, are often met with fear, anger, contempt, ridicule – and even banishment and imprisonment. Independent thinkers can be considered radicals, creative types seen as eccentric or crazy, and those who defy tradition and convention as rebels and freasks. All risk condemnation in one way or another.
