I hope you enjoyed my previous post.
If you have not read it, you can find it here Telling stories using Tarot cards. Part 1.
I am trying to teach those of you who are learning Tarot how to recognize the energy of the cards in everyday living.
In Telling Stories using Tarot cards, I write about my life and then select some cards to tell the same story.
In the past couple of months I have had some small health issues.
First, I suddenly developed a pain in my left ankle that quickly got worse, ending up limiting my mobility. The strange thing was that I had not fallen, dropped anything on it. In other words I did not know why I was in pain.
It took me over a couple of months to identify the problem and take the necessary actions, but I am much better now and on my way back to an active lifestyle.
As soon as my ankle got better I came down with a very nasty cold, which is not over yet.
Just as I was fighting the cold I started to experience an increase of calls from new potential clients looking to book Reiki sessions.
If you are familiar with energy, you know that you do not want to go in people’s energy field when you are contagious. Needless to say I had to turn clients down. Hopefully I will work with them as soon as I am better.
I am going now to quickly select the cards to tell the story.
See if they make sense to you. We could use other cards, but these resonated with me.
Again I am using the Legacy of the Divine Tarot deck by Ciro Marchetti.
4 of swords. That is me feet up on the couch going nowhere.
Hermit. I finally decide to seek answers and figure out the source of the pain and why I am not getting better.
Queen of pentacles. She is the lovely specialist that explained my arch problem to me in a way that I could understand. She was also very approachable and kind. She generously suggested many practical and cheap strategies to solve my issues.
The Ace of swords is the clear picture and strategy I was offered.
The 6 of swords is me slowly healing and applying the suggestions given to me. I am not fully recovered yet, but I am heading in the right direction.
Now let’s look at the second set of cards.
4 of swords again. The cold sucks the vitality out of me.
Page of swords. I receive calls and messages.
6 of pentacles. The news are about exchange of Energy in the form of Reiki sessions.
Notice how fittingly the scale of the 6 of coins stands between the messages (page) and the 10 of wands, me feeling overwhelmed.
The 7 of wands is me taking the high ground. I am not well. It would not be good for me or my clients to be in very close proximity through a Reiki session.
The lady in the card well shows me denying access to clients and to germs.
The Hanged Man is me asking my clients to wait for their appointments, to give me a chance to heal first.
I hope you enjoyed the process. Feel free to tell me if you would have used different cards and why.
