Rather, you are penetrating the layers and veils to

return to the deepest truth of your own being.”

How Can We Let Our True Selves Shine This Lunar Cycle?
Card Deck: Soulful Woman Guidance Cards by Shushann Movsessian & Gemma Summers

2. Self-Renewal – As I clean out old energies, I have more space for that which wants to be birthed into my life. 

It is really funny that in a deck of 48 cards, it’s the second time the same card appeared within this year.

This self-renewal card appeared in the previous lunar cycle card reading for March 2021 under the theme “SUPPORT”. Interestingly, in order to let our true selves shine in this lunar cycle, we are asked to come back to decluttering.

In a way I guess this is not a surprise. Our soul carries our original blueprint, and we are all perfect as we are born into this world. But as our egos develop and we learn how to function in the world, we start to create beliefs, habits, behaviors to help us navigate our path in this life.

Sometimes these beliefs and life experiences may eventually become blocks though, and these blocks stop us from seeing our own inner light. Instead, we act to please others, to seek for approval, and to fulfill other people’s expectations rather than our Soul’s purpose.

As we take away these “blocks”, we can again see clearly what’s underneath all the drama, identities, roles and attachments. Our Soul’s light will naturally shine forth.

The woman in the card is blended well in Nature. By shining our light, it doesn’t mean that we need to stand in the spot light. Instead, this is humble work. As we turn our gaze inward and start to heal any blocks inside us that stop us from being our true selves, we become more harmonious with our surroundings, Nature and the Universe. We can feel that we are all connected as one.

This lunar cycle doesn’t feel like an expansive one, which is normally how I would associate with the word “shine”. Instead it feels more quiet and introspective. It’s time to focus on healing our inner world, being mindful and aware of what no longer aligns with our true selves and slowly move towards alignment between the soul, heart and mind.

As we tend to ourselves for renewal, this is also a perfect time for some nourishing self-care. Perhaps it is a good opportunity to spend some time in Nature. Nature has incredible healing powers. Just by being in the presence of Nature can already initiate a healing process. Perhaps it’s getting a massage, soaking in a warm bath, reading a book, going for a staycation or local retreat, or allowing yourself to do nothing for the whole day. Be gentle and kind to yourself.

Within each person there is a flame inside our heart center. As you are living as your authentic self, doing what lights you up, your inner light naturally shines like the flame of a candle. And like how we can use a candle to light another one without extinguishing our own light, your light will naturally inspire others to live as their authentic selves.
TRY THIS AFFIRMATION: I allow my inner light to shine forth.

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.

For example,

I am radiating.

My inner light shines forth naturally.

I let go of beliefs / behaviors / past experiences that no longer serve me.

I am connected with my inner light.

I am aware of my inner light.

  • Open your heart again to give and receive love
  • Feel supported in a safe group space to share your voice

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.
