Intuition is the great teacher, and the great motivator. The Seer understands and trust intuition. Do you?
In all aspects of our lives, intuition is the guide if we will listen to it. Intuition does not follow rules, it does not follow a logical pattern. Intuition is ephemeral and the goal it is taking you to may not be the one you expect or even understand is possible in your life.
The fact is many people do not understand or follow their intuition. They prefer logic, planning and the word of others over their own. Their gut feeling about a person, a relationship, a friendship or a colleague is ignored, replaced by hopes and dreams that may not be grounded in reality. Part of intuition is truth. The Seer seeks truth and through intuition brings it to you. Will you follow it. Will you allow it to guide you?
The Seer reads between the lines and understands what is not being said. There is clarity in the Seer, will you ignore it?
Now is the time for you to trust your intuition, to move forward with it and be successful rather than be lost in plans and effort that does not bring rewards.
Trust your instincts, allow perception of your circumstances to widen to include the nuances and subtle cues that you normally miss if you take things at face value.
You are exactly where you’re supposed to be.
Your vision is clear.
The Seer appears now to challenge you to end denial and begin telling yourself the truth about your situation. Wishful thinking will not make what you desire happen when you’re refusing to see things as they are. The truth may hurt, but it will set you free to claim the bounty that is waiting for you to notice it. This is a moment of true power.
Wind is air, one of the five elements recognised by Shamans. Air rules communication, thought, song, and inspired ideas. It carries our speech to another so that we may communicate. It is both the positive and negative, the wind that fills the sails of a sailing ship also blows down a home.
The wind blows from all directions, but the four cardinal direction interest us most.
- South: trust, helping you gently begin to discard habits and parts of you that are no longer needed
- West: introspection, a willingness to make final decisions, to let go of attachment and ego desires
- North: bringing wisdom and strength
- East: clarity of vision and purpose
The wind offers a challenge and whichever direction the wind blows from, facing it to meet the challenge takes courage.
Wind brings change, you need to be thoughtful and change your mind about something that until now, had seemed solid and reasonable. Look at it again and be ready to change as the wind blows.
It may seem as if your world has been turned upside down, but this is a temporary storm it will blow over.
When we are young, we know the world is full of magic and new things to enjoy and it is a place for adventures. As we grow older, we lose that childlike wonder and appreciation for what is around us as we struggle and battle to make things happen that we perceive we want.
Recapture your childhood, you child’s sense of wonder.
Do it now!
Look around you without judgement, without a sense of doing, just receive.
Sit in a park, by a lake. Think of friends, family and your partner. Look at them with your child’s sense of wonder and openness. Appreciate the new things you see in them. Are they so strange that you cannot do this? No! Enjoy a return to your childhood and without an adult’s outlook.
Queen of the Moon Oracle Card – Pleasure
Life can be a struggle. Our ego mind, stress and struggle of trying to attain goals and accumulate achievement has blocked our appreciation of life. Life is not to be fought and struggled against, it is to be enjoyed and those experiences are important.
The message here is to stop fighting life, struggling against it, trying to mould it into something it cannot be and does not give us pleasure.
Go out in nature and enjoy. Go for a walk. Decide for today and every day going forward that you are not going to fight and struggle, you are going to let life and nature unravel as they are intended to do.
Relax, and be at peace.
