34. True Worth – My true worth is intrinsic and shines from my inner being like a sacred jewel of love and compassion.
The soul lesson for everyone that is slowly falling away by October is about understanding and learning about our true worth.
Perhaps we have been through a test of faith, an initiation or “dark night of the soul”, where we felt like we walked through a tunnel of darkness and have emerged from the other end.
Through this initiation, we have been shown how our limiting beliefs sabotage us, and our ego is being asked to step aside. The initiation may come as a form of heartbreak, anger, frustration, exhaustion, or even boredom.
When we go through trauma, emotionally, mentally, physically, or spiritually, there is always a lesson there for us to learn. The gift, or the blessing in disguise behind the trauma, is a hidden treasure waiting for us to discover. And through this discovery, we realize our true worth.
Our true worth is not defined by what we do, the labels we give ourselves, nor by who we think we are. Our true worth is the soul essence that resides inside us. Our soul essence is the I AM presence, the inner divine light that we all hold inside our hearts.
No matter what happens in the outside world, we are asked to remember that we are worthy. We are worthy of love. We are worthy of receiving. We are worthy of being here. No one is better or worse. We are all equal on a soul level.
In the image of the card, there is a bumble bee inside a diamond-shaped jewel around the woman’s throat energy center. In this case, I see it as our true voice trapped inside a diamond-shaped cage.
The past month is like a preparation for us to build the confidence to finally speak our truth. Now that we know our true worth and it does not depend on other people’s approval, we can release the bumble bee, so-to-speak.
There is much energy gathering in the throat area, waiting for the right time to be released. The light is shining brightly inside, and finally it’s going to lead up to this month where we will be able to shine our light by expressing our soul’s truth.
Have you held back your voice in order to please or gain other people’s approval? Have you felt like you have been through an initiation this month? Are you able to see the gift beyond the initiation? Where is the initiation leading you towards?
Take 10 minutes today to write down your thoughts and feelings in your journal. If you feel called, feel free to write back to me and share your learning from the past month.
39. Princess Charming – I take the horse by the reins and become my own Princess Charming, taking care of my own needs.
As we finally come to understand our true worth the past month, it’s time to take action. If September feels like a relatively “slow” month, since we have been working on ourselves and focusing on our inner world, October feels like it’s going to be an “action” month where our energy will be directed to expand outwards.
Now that we know our true worth, how can we put this into action? How can we act now, since we no longer have the need to seek the approval or please others?
Become your own superhero and superheroine, is the answer the card shows. Don’t wait for someone else to save you. This is not the same as asking for help from others. It means we cannot stay passive and continue to be the victim of our own unhappiness. Act on your intuition. Act on the guidance you receive.
Sometimes we receive guidance or we have an intuitive hit or a deeper knowing, but after some thoughts or talking to others, we give up. We may listen to others and our rational mind and ignore our intuition. This has consequences, no matter how small or huge.
This card is reminding us that we all have the answers within us. The spirals in the woman’s hair in the card remind us to remember our own gifts, to remember to take action from a place of love.
She is confident, and she is smiling. Yes, she is taking charge of her own destiny. She is strong, and she represents your inner sacred feminine ready to collaborate and work in partnership with your inner sacred masculine.
Allow the wisdom of your heart to guide you. Allow your inner divine light to guide you to act with integrity, love, confidence, honor, respect and in harmony with others and the Universe.
This is the month to take charge and act. If you have a new project or are assigned a new task, this is the month to step up your game and be the leader you’ve always wanted to be. Leadership doesn’t mean domineering. The best leaders listen and know how to work in partnership while maintaining their integrity and compassion to ensure a win-win situation. Perhaps this is the time to speak up at your work place as well. Remember, when the truth is expressed through a place of love and authenticity from your heart, it will touch the hearts of others.
This card reminds us not to rely on our partners or friends or family to make our lives better. It is not another person’s responsibility to make us happy or to fulfil us. Be your own princess or prince charming. Take care of yourself first, put your needs as priority because you know you are worth it. When you experience joy and peace from within, you will naturally radiate this positive energy to others. What a gift that is.
If you have been passive with creating or managing wealth in your life, then this is the month to be more proactive. Follow your intuition. Ask your heart and the Universe for guidance. How can I manifest more abundance in my life? And follow through whatever comes to you. Perhaps you feel drawn to learn more about investments, or you meet someone who has great financial advices and can help you. Perhaps you feel called to create a new business offering, or to collaborate with others to generate more revenue. Whatever that you feel called to, know that you deserve abundance and wealth in all levels just like everyone else.
WORK YOUR MAGIC
What is one thing that you can commit to achieve this month? It may be a project that you have started but never got to finish. It may be a business or a creative idea in your head but you never got to act on it. It may be putting yourself and your needs first and to ensure you take your happiness in your own hands.
Write your one goal down or make a vision mandala with it. If you need a bit more motivation, close your eyes and imagine how it will feel like when you have achieved your goal. Imagine the smile on your face. Feel how your body moves and how your body posture will look like. Hear what you will say to yourself. Use this positive feeling as an anchor point to help motivate you to take action.
Remember all small wins count. If your goal is a big one, break it down into smaller pieces. For example, if your goal is to write a book or to create your own website, you may not finish it in one month realistically speaking. Break it down into smaller, more realistic and achievable steps. Perhaps it is to finish drafting one chapter, or one page of your website content. Whatever it is that can keep you connected to the energy of your bigger goal.
I normally close the monthly card reading with a prayer. But this month, I’m going to ask you to choose your own theme song of the month. What is your theme song of the month that will cheer you on with your commitment this month?
For me, I dedicate this prayer song for all of us this month. I’ve come across this song as a beautiful Shamanic circle song in an online course.
MAY YOU WALK IN BEAUTY
May you walk in Beauty in a sacred way
May you walk in Beauty each and every day.
May you walk in Beauty in a sacred way
May you walk in Beauty each and every day.
May the Beauty of the Fire, lift your spirit higher,
May the Beauty of the Earth, fill your heart with mirth,
May the Beauty of the Rain, wash away your pain,
May the beauty of the Sky teach your mind to fly.
Here are a few versions of this song on Youtube, enjoy singing along!
1. May You Walk in Beauty by Keruna Women's Voices II:
2. May We Walk in Beauty · Leah Salomaa
3. "May You Walk In Beauty" in a live Shamanic workshop by Sandra Ingerman (this is where I’ve learned the song):
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.
