Card Deck: Soulful Woman Guidance Cards by Shushann Movsessian & Gemma Summers
Last month we finish off the monthly reading on the topic of Self-Belief. How did the message of believing yourself unfold in the past month for you?
Just a couple weeks ago, I had this idea of filming a weekly Soul Card Reading message of the week video and to share that on Instagram. Even though it seemed like a fun idea, I was struggling a lot in my mind whether I should do it or not.
Maybe I was just wasting my time and no one would be interested. Was I even good enough to do it?
My inner critic was certainly telling me not to do it so I didn’t have to “waste” time doing something that wouldn’t produce revenue and of course, not to embarrass myself.
After a few days I still had the same idea in my mind. It wouldn’t go away and was nudging me to follow through. I checked in with my oracle cards and the answer was to go ahead and remember that I was not doing this alone. I was reminded that the Universe was co-creating with me and I didn’t need to rely solely on my own strength and willpower.
So on Sunday morning I thought, okay I would just film it. If I didn’t like it, I wouldn’t post it. One step led to another. I filmed the video and felt really good. I was excited to see through my creation, so I spent the next two hours editing a 5-minute video.
It didn’t feel right to post it on Museflower’s Instagram page though, so I created a separate Instagram and Youtube page that focused on my intuitive healing services and posted the video there.
I trust that those who need to hear the message will hear it somehow, and the Universe will arrange it. If you are interested to take a look, here’s the link to the soul card reading of the week video for July 26 to August 1, 2020: https://youtu.be/LqfMMTvjCqE
This was my story of how listening to my intuition and actually taking actions and following through rewarded me. It was not a financial reward (yet – who knows), but I felt so proud of myself and my heart so full for having co-created with the Universe and manifested an idea into reality.
WHAT IS FALLING AWAY:
16. The Flow of Partnership – The ebb and flow of relationship takes me where I need to be next on my path.
Another topic that seems to be falling away for July 2020 is the flow of partnership. Partnership in this case is not limited to romantic relationships. It can be business relationships, relationships with friends and family, or even with Nature.
In a global scale we can actually see the breaking down of partnerships between countries such as USA and China with a lot of tension arising. On the other hand, there is also a rise of collaboration and knowledge-sharing due to the pandemic within communities to help each other move forward creatively.
In my personal life, I have seen a strengthening of bond with my husband and my soul friends. The strengthening did come from a place of initial breakdown first though.
Perhaps you had experienced some disharmony in your relationships this past month. But through the disharmony you were able to bring light into the shadows, and noticed what shadow aspects of yourself had been projected onto others.
The key here is to let go of control and to forgive. It’s like the woman in the card, letting loose her hair to flow with the wind. The ebb and flow of relationships is like the ocean waves. We cannot hold on tight to water and try to control the waves. We cannot say if low tide or high tide is better. They are all part of the natural cycle of life.
Some relationships may break down; some may be strengthened. The same relationship may bring us heartache one day, and then make our hearts feel full the next day.
It is important to stay tuned into your heart space and stay present with any discomfort arising. Trust that everything happens for a reason, and is only pointing you to the right direction.
Forgive past hurts and traumas with as much compassion and love as you can. This is the only way for us to move forward in our lives.
What aspects of your relationships do you feel have strengthened in the past month? Why is that? Is it because you have let go of control? Did you recognize your inner critic talking to you? How can you forgive the judgments and criticisms towards yourself and others?
Take 10 minutes today to write down your thoughts and feelings in your journal, and celebrate how much you have grown and evolved the past month.
WHAT IS RISING:
1. Love-Based Reality – I am soul-nurtured when I surround myself with friends and family who support a love-based reality.
If July 2020 is the month where we are feeling the ebb and flow of ocean waves, the next card definitely shows that August 2020 is a calmer and centered month.
August 2020 is all about building a strong foundation to create a love-based reality in your life. As the card message shows, surround yourself with friends and family who support you no matter what, and who love you unconditionally.
This is the time to connect with your heart, and reflect on what a love-based reality means for you.
To me, the question to ask myself is whether I am making a decision coming from a place of love or a place of fear. What is my true intention, and what is motivating me to set that intention?
There is no judgment here. Ask yourself honestly, and acknowledge any fear or judgment that arises. Forgive yourself, as this is what living in a love-based reality means.
There is strength coming and radiating from the heart, and this feeling stays inside. It’s about focusing on your own presence. It’s not so much a time to focus on the outside and to expand your energy outward. It’s a time to build a strong foundation from within first.
I believe that our external world is just a reflection of our inner world. The more you can center yourself, meaning aligning your mind, heart and soul as one, the more peace and strength you radiate outwards. It’s not about doing anything, it’s all about being connected in the present moment.
If you are working on a new project or idea, August will be the month to “get to work”. Build a solid foundation for your idea before launching to the world. This is a month of preparation and planning, honing your craft and tapping into your inner resources. Keep the energy of your new idea contained until you feel that it is at least 80% ready to be shown to the world.
Not building something new? You can still create a positive working environment around you that uplifts and inspires you. Take charge and ask yourself what small steps you can take today to make this happen.
Whether you are single or in a relationship, this month is about focusing on self-love. If you are single, instead of focusing your attention to find the right partner, this is the time to connect to yourself and your loved ones who truly support you.
Only when we can see and appreciate that love is already so abundantly present in our life, then can love radiate through our presence and actions. That’s how we can attract even more love into our lives. Not from a place of desperation, but from a place of content and fulfillment.
This month is also a great time to strengthen your bond with your family and friends who are in your core support network. Remember this is your time to create your love-based reality. Consider a digital detox if that is something you resonate with, so you can better focus your attention on being with yourself and your loved ones.
How can you create more of an abundance consciousness in your life? Maybe you don’t have one million dollars yet, but you do have 10 dollars and that’s a great starting point. Treat yourself some moments of high-quality luxury. Luxury or high-quality does not need to be expensive. It may be a warm bath infused with therapeutic-grade essential oil. It may be finding a quiet spot to enjoy a sunset with a view. It may be treating yourself a much-needed massage with an experienced therapist.
WORK YOUR MAGIC
Take some quiet time this month to allow yourself connect to your soul, Nature, and the Universe’s wisdom. This is the time for spiritual cultivation and to invest in yourself.
Give yourself some time and space to be by yourself and to focus within. Perhaps a walk in nature, meditation, drink a cup of tea in silence, dance, sing, draw, or any other spiritual practices that you already do.
When you shift your attention to your own needs and value your own worth, those who do not support you will slowly fade out of your life. See the light within yourself and in others. Let go of relationships that no longer serve you, and focus on building those that are nurturing on a soul level.
LET’S CELEBRATE WITH A BIT MORE MAGIC:
I close this month’s reading with a very famous prayer that I have been reminded of the past month. You can customize this prayer to what suits you. Remember prayers are not confined to religious purposes. You can replace the word “God” with Universe, Nature, God/Goddess, Life, or any words that you resonate with.
by American theologian Reinhold Niebuhr
God, please grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change,
the courage to change the things I can,
and the wisdom to know the difference.
TAP INTO YOUR INTUITION
I recognize that my interpretation of the cards is largely based on reflections of my personal life experience and you may or may not resonate with what I share. I find that sometimes by sharing what’s going on in my life, others may find that they are going through something similar in their lives. It’s important to know that you are not going through this journey of life alone.
I highly encourage you to look at the cards as well and feel into the messages and energies of the cards yourself.
Read the messages and notice what sensations come up. Do you feel light or tense? Look at the images of the cards, and notice what draws your gaze. What thoughts and feelings arise? Do you like or dislike the card, or certain elements in the image of the card? Why is that and what does it remind you of?
Your intuition is your inner compass. My intuitive soul card reading only serves as a reference point, an invitation for you to reflect and ponder and to work your magic. I don’t claim to predict the future, nor can I do that. Take what you resonate and leave what you don’t.
Card reading is a great intuitive tool for us to find some clarity and guidance in our own life, but remember ultimately you are the one who get to decide and live the life you want.
Enjoy reading and feel free to let me know your thoughts, questions and sharing by email.
