Yes, It Should Feel Good

How good do you feel about what you’re doing while you’re here on the planet?

Not “how hard is it”? Or “is it smooth sailing”? Or “do you love every single thing about it”?

Does the inside you have a good feeling about how the outside you is spending your time together?

It’s important to have a sense of a personal path through life. You can call it a mission, if you like. Or a calling.

So how do you tell when you’ve got something going on?

Let me ask you another question (like I haven’t asked enough already) . . . . how’s your sex life?

If you didn’t enjoy it a whole lot of the time, if there wasn’t a big pay-off at some point, would you even have a sex life?

There wouldn’t be much survival of any species if pro-creation were a chore.

So why should your personal mission be any different?

If you and the Divine got together to have a chat about what the world needed, is it likely you’d decide that your crucial part in supplying solutions would be something you despise with absolutely no reward, internal or otherwise?

There’s a reason for finding the joy in life . . . it points the way to your special journey.

Part of my mission is to help you connect with the joy in your life, at any point in your journey. You know where to find me.    Take note of the Weekly Transformation3 Gathering on the Specials page, geared toward exactly that.

Weekly Card XVII The Stars in All Their Glory

150129 XVII Renaissance Alligo
Tarot of the Renaissance

We’ve looked at the basic Tarot . . . It’s Easier Than You Think idea of XVII The Star as a calling. And we’ve talked about how unlikely the elements of your personal mission can be. So what does Giorgio Trevisan’s beautiful image from the Tarot of the Renaissance have to teach us?

I’m most aware that we can see this Star in all her beauty through her garment. She’s not at all concerned with her visibility.

It’s very much like that when we become comfortable with our true calling. People can see us for who we are. We’re not wearing a social mask. What we do no longer hides us.

This Star pours from a pitcher and a cup. We know Cups as the suit of relationships, emotions and creativity, the suit of the heart. Our mission is never in isolation; there’s always service and connection to others involved. And there’s certainly creativity: no one else has our mission.   We’re making it up as we go.

Quite often I’ve heard from clients who think they’ve found their mission when they’re doing what they “should be” doing, even though they hate it. Our missions satisfy us, even emotionally. If you’re not in love with what you’re doing, you’re still earthbound. Aim higher.

In this deck, XVII The Stars is a multiple. Our detailed Star is just one of many glowing in the firmament. Her halo glows brightly, and so do those of all the stars that surround her. We are one of many with a personal mission. Other stars shining brightly don’t dim our light. When we see others being a light in the dark, we can welcome their success, knowing that we’re doing the same, that we’re also being recognized for our inspiration by those we serve.

Take your place amoung the stars!

 If you’re not feeling very star-ish, tarot provides an excellent tool to help you connect with your calling. You know where I can be found.
