35. Surrendering – I honor the truth in surrender as it opens me to gifts of divine grace.
You may remember seeing this card in our previous lunar cycle card reading for April 2021 under the theme “EXPLORE”.
It feels like the energy from April is now being carried forward to June. Whatever that has started being let go of in April will continue on in June.
From looking at this card, I have a very strong sense of letting go of old structures and plans and control. Perhaps this is linked to where I am at my life now, where my routine is going through a big change because my son is starting kindergarten.
I just realize that the routine I have settled in so comfortably for the past two years will change drastically, as I have to drive my son to school every day now (by the way, any new parents feel the same?).
As we are letting go of old structures, routines, schedules, and plans, we create space for the new to come. It feels like the old that no longer serves us is being uprooted, and we are asked to venture into something new. We may not know what the new is yet. This is the time to experiment, explore (coming back to the energies of April), play, trust and surrender.
The woman’s eyes are closed in the card but on her third eye area there is a brilliant golden star shining. This is not the time to look externally for answers. The answer will come from within. Through this letting go, we are being asked to listen to our heart and intuition even more. And this is how we can be in the flow of the Universe.
It may not seem obvious at first. Whenever there is change, resistance will arise. Most of us don’t prefer to leave our comfort zones unless we are being nudged or pushed out of it.
It is scary to step into the unknown. How do we know if it’s safe? How do we know if everything will work out fine?
The truth is that we don’t know anything. We don’t know what will happen in the future. But if we keep on worrying about the future, we are wasting precious mental and emotional energies and we forget about what’s really important – the present moment.
What I do know is that change is always for the better. It doesn’t mean that we cannot plan ahead. But be prepared to be flexible. Remember, the Universe always has a better plan for our highest good.
The answer will come when we take a pause, be still and listen attentively to our hearts. The answer does not lie in the past or future. The answer lies in the here and now. All you need to do is just close your eyes, and tune into the vast space within you. There is a whole Universe residing within you.
You may not have the answer right now and that’s okay – you are not alone. There are a few uncertainties in my life now as well, and it’s hard to know how everything will pan out.
I absolutely love this quote from Rebecca Campbell’s new book called “Letters to a Starseed” that summarizes this lunar cycle’s card reading and she wrote,
“Perhaps the question is a door to a whole new way of living – to a whole new chapter on planet Earth. And through living into the question we pass through the threshold and find a way to create a whole new world.”
While you are waiting for the answer to come, why don’t you take a moment and look up to the beautiful night sky? If you pay closer attention, you may see countless stars shining and radiating, reminding both you and me that the unknown is where the magic lies.
Repeat this affirmation as often as you need during this lunar cycle. A great tip is to write your affirmation on a piece of paper and place it somewhere you can see everyday as a reminder.
Feel free to change the words to make it 100% aligned to you.
I surrender to the flow of the Universe.
I trust the process of my life.
I trust the unfolding of Life.
I trust my intuition.
I listen to my heart.

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.
