Last year I did a reading for a lady, and the three cards in the future position were the 8, 9 & 10 swords. All difficult cards to suggesting anxiety, stress and worry.
I took my second deck to pull a clarity card hoping to add a positive note, and got the 9 of swords again.
My client was a single mum, two jobs, desperately worried about how she was going to pay the bills.
I can't wave a magic wand (often..) but the cards were clear that the biggest problem was not money, but her worrying about money.
She agreed to go home and confront her bills, sort out a budget and deal with her problems. Seeing her life reflected in the cards was an awakening moment.
She came back three months later, and I have never seen such a difference.
Happy, optimistic cards, strong cards.
I asked her what had changed. "My attitude" she said, I still have the same amount of money, the same number of bills. I still worry about money.
When I worry I work through my budget, pay what I can. Then I stop the worry and enjoy my children and life.
Of course my reading did not create this change, it alerted her to how she was wasting her life and energy worrying.
She made the difference by choosing to change.
The last time she came she seemed to radiate from inside. Inspired by how the tarot had helped her to change she is learning to meditate from you tube videos, which is helping to deal with the last residues of her anxiety...
