That inner voice has both gentleness and clarity. So to get to authenticity, you really keep going down to the bone, to the honesty, and the inevitability of something.
During a recent Akashic records reading from colleague, Tomar Levine, I was advised to pull back and roll up into a ball the many colored energetic yarns of help and support I’ve sent out to others in the recent years.
For the next few months, I am to shift my perspective from the outer world to the inner one in order to be in direct communion with inner knowing and the divine, and to serve as a conduit between the inner world and the vast spacious sky of beyond. As this information was relayed to me, I saw in my mind’s eye a large arched window through which I looked up into a vast sky.
Several evenings later, on the eve of the New Moon, I took out Colette Baron-Reid’s deck, Wisdom of the Hidden Realms, and pulled a card, looking for affirmation. The Cosmos came up and I had to laugh at the literalness of the card as related to the Akashic records reading, especially with the arched window and the words, “Creativity, vastness”.
Next, I pulled six Legacy of the Divine Tarot cards for further development of the idea, especially as related to this Scorpio New Moon (Scorpio having to do with death, sex and transformation). Under the Death card which showed up (letting go in exchange for something new), one of three cards that I drew was the Six of Swords.
I’ve written about this card previously in relation to moving from the past into the future of your creativity. But that evening, I saw it as the journey to explore the inner realm, looking for undiscovered treasures and listening for messages coming from the Muse or the divine self.
All these insights were particularly interesting in light of what a friend of mine who is knowledgeable in astrology shared with me after looking at my chart. The chart indicated that I should spend as much time at home in the next few months as I can.
So, why am I sharing this with you?
Well, because I’m accepting the challenge of making that inner journey. And I invite you to share it with me by either reading my reports along the way or by:
- Disengaging as much as possible. Obviously, I will continue to honor commitments I’ve made like publishing my newsletter, and filming my Monday tarot videos. And, of course I’ll be following through on my commitments to clients. But I will be minimizing the online and offline connecting and doing. I challenge you to disengage as much as possible. See if you can reduce time on the phone, the computer, even the TV.
- Continuing or creating an inner/spiritual practice. Over the years, I’ve done meditation, journaling, daily pages, tarot, deep breathing, recording dreams, etc. But for the last two years, my quiet or inner time has been random and unstructured. I think it’s time for a little more structure. What about you? What simple practice would open the pathway to your inner realms?
- Staying open to how the inner discoveries and insights want to be expressed. For me, I hope that it will want to be expressed through two important creative projects that I’ve wanted to complete or even begin for some time. But I will stay open to other possibilities as well. How might your inner discoveries and insights want to be express?
The journey to the inner world is as vast and exciting as a journey to Paris or Fiji or Tuscany or Alaska.
Are you coming with me?
