A general reading that I thought could provide intuition and insight into the moment for any needing it. The cards all feel connected in my mind and so no matter which one jumps out at you, I have faith that you will find the words you need to see when you trust they are meant for you and can guide you to a better moment.
The Three of Rainbows – “Guidance” says “The truth of your own deepest being is trying to show you where to go right now, and when this card appears it means you can trust the inner guidance you are being given. It speaks in whispers, and sometimes we can hesitate, not knowing if we have understood rightly. But the indications are clear: in following the inner guide you will feel more whole, more integrated, as if you are moving outwards from the very center of your being. If you go with it, this beam of light will carry you exactly where you need to go.”
My channeling of the card: Do we listen when we are spoken to? Do we care what needs known? When something comes into your life do you run from the truth or open yourself to the words of wisdom that are shared freely and without condition or consequence? The choices we make are usually very simple. Do we listen or do we ignore? Do we change or do we remain stagnant? The choice is always there and with that choice the ability for better comes with every moment. Take your moment and listen to yourself – for it is you that knows best. Trust that when you choose right, you will feel better for having done so. And when you feel better, you’ll know that you made the right choice, in the right time.
The Ten of Clouds – “Rebirth” says “Whatever the space you’re in right now – sleepy and depressed, or roaring and rebellious – be aware that it will evolve into something new if you allow it. It is a time of growth and change.”
My channeling of the card: So often we are the reason that change does not come. We are stuck in our state of mind, thinking that it is the right way to be thinking. But when we open our mind and allow reason and intuition to guide the moment, we see how easy it is to flow through the moment and become exactly what the moment calls for. Open the self to the realization that time flows through the present moment to carry us to the future we most desire. If the future is bright, make bright choices to get there, instead of falling to the easy path of negativity and despair.
The “The Master” card says “The Master in Zen is not a master over others, but a master of himself. His every gesture and his every word reflect his enlightened state. He has no private goals, no desire that anything should be other than the way it is. His disciples gather around him not to follow him, but to soak up his presence and be inspired by his example. In his eyes they find their own truth reflected, and in his silence they fall more easily into the silence of their own beings. The master welcomes the disciples not because he wants to lead them, but because he has so much to share. Together, they create an energy field that supports each unique individual in finding his or her own light. If you can find such a master you are blessed. If you cannot, keep on searching. Learn from the teachers, and the would-be masters, and move on. Charaiveti, charaiveti, said Gautam Buddha. Keep on moving.”
My channeling of the card: Just learn to be. Nothing more has to be done other than to accept who you are is enough in this moment. This moment is a gift and what you make of your gift colors the perspective you hold over the life you lead. Do you expect grandiose gifts and turn your nose up at anything smaller than your expectation? Do you open your arms to all the wonder the world has and close yourself off from nothing but the darkness others lose themselves in? Who you are is your choice and by your choice who you are is yours to witness. So choose to be better so you can feel better. Or choose to be down and understand why you are down. Lift yourself and walk the path you were meant to be on and trust no matter whether you are on or off the path, you are still on a journey. Just keep going.
So in summary: Listen, Change, Become
