Today’s Daily Draw

Fresh Approach

When I do a tarot reading I always look at the card on the bottom of the deck because it has some information for me about the draw I am about to do. The card on the bottom of the deck this morning is Hope & Happiness. Granted everyone’s idea of happiness is different but I don’t know anyone that doesn’t want to be happy. It’s an end goal that we all work toward, but what if we get stuck and we feel like nothing positive is happening? There are three possible answers to that question. We can feel sorry for ourselves and give up, many people do when faced with obstacles. We can accept that perhaps we are in a waiting period and prepare ourselves for when the time is right. The third option is to look at our situation from another angle and try again. This is the message of our card, Fresh Approach. Spend some time visualizing our perfect place of being. Whether is a perfect job, the perfect person for us, the perfect home, our perfect life. Do the goals and dreams we have line up with this vision? If not then perhaps that is our problem and explains why we feel stuck. If our head and heart are not in alignment we aren’t going to get very far. But, when they are and we have tried everything we can think of and it hasn’t worked for us, what do we do? Something different! Stop thinking about what hasn’t worked. About what we might see as a deal breaker. Stop the limiting beliefs. The I can’t because thinking. There is always a way we simply have to find it. Look at the situation from different points of view today. When we know what doesn’t work, learn from it and try experimenting with a new process. We don’t have to know all the answers we just have to set a positive intention, be willing to begin again and keep trying.

Today’s Universal Number 

We have some interesting three stranded synchronicity today. It’s a nine day, the full moon and our card is talking about a new beginning. The energy of the nine is about completing one phase and opening the door to another. The full moon is about letting g of what isn’t working for us or valid in our lives and our card suggests it’s time to try a new way of looking at our life or a situation we are working on. Is it time to step out and try a new door?

Today’s Crystals

For working through a change Labradorite is one of my favorite crystals. It will give us the clarity we need to work through whatever confusion we may be experiencing. The second choice I have today is Pink Aventurine. This beauty has a calming, creative energy that can inspire us to see the range of alternatives we have so that we can choose what is best for us.

Today’s Daily Draw

Open Your Heart

It’s wonderful to see friendships and marriages that have lasted for decades. Love is one of the main lessons we come to this plane to learn and it certainly isn’t an easy one. We make it difficult by getting our egos in the way and placing limits and expectations on love that aren’t supposed to be there. Real love is unconditional, it doesn’t demand, set limits or place expectations. Love just loves. This is the message of our card, Open Your Heart. The opportunity for deep unconditional loving relationships is all around us in the family and friends we surround ourselves with. This requires us to be willing to open our hearts and be vulnerable and this is not an easy task. Being open means the possibility of being disappointed or hurt. But, that’s the lesson isn’t it? Let’s examine our relationships and see if we are being fully open to allowing love to bring us all that an unconditional relationship has to offer.

Today’s Universal Number

We have an eight day today and we could be looking for some balance in our lives. That could mean reorganizing our priorities and making more time for the things and people who matter most. This might mean some tough decisions but the eight is a strong energy and more than capable of handling it.

Today’s Crystals

All crystals and gemstones bring a range of energy that help us heal and grow to become the best we can be. With today’s card being a focus on love, I chose Rose Quartz but I also brought in other crystals that can help bring loving relationships into our lives. Some of the other crystal choices are Selenite, Jade, Garnet, Rhodonite, Moonstone and Lapis lazuli.

Today’s Daily Draw

Trust Your Own Understanding

Recognising and learning to trust our intuition can take time. As children it’s easy because we are so much closer to our real selves. As we grow, the illusion of life and all that goes with it causes us to either not trust that connection to our higher selves or tune it out altogether. We might want to rethink the tuning it out thing and pay attention to our feelings that something might not be right today. Trust Your Own Understanding chose us and her message is that there may be come confusion around us that could very well cause some problems. Perhaps we are feeling like we aren’t being told the truth, maybe there are some mixed details around a project at work or in our personal lives that could derail everything. The first thing we need to do is not get angry, that won’t help the situation. Before we make any final decisions it will be important to check the details and verify our facts. Then trust our intuition. Believe that what we know to be truth about what is going on is correct and continue on with our plans. Don’t force a stand-off, just let things flow. Be patient, the truth will come out and any lies and misinformation will be in the open for everyone to see.

Today’s Universal Number   

Seven is our universal energy and it’s desire for knowledge and wisdom will be useful in our quest to discover the truth behind our intuitive feelings that something may not be quite right today.

Today’s Crystals

When dealing with intuition we want crystals that work well with our third eye and our heart chakras. We have to know in our head and feel in our heart that something is truth. So to this end I chose Sodalite and Chrysoprase. Both encourage knowledge and truth. Sodalite is a crystal of truth and works to open and expand our psychic/intuitive ability. Chrysoprase is known as the crystal of divine truth and this we feel in our heart chakra. It give us the courage to accept that truth and to trust our intuitive connection to the divine.

Show Your Support

Knowing we have a support system, a group of family or friends that we know we can count on to be there for us if we need them, gives us comfort and the courage to follow our dreams and be who we are. Show Your Support chose us to let us know that we may be someones support system today. Stay in the moment and be aware of whats going on. Call on an elderly neighbor or family member to see how they are doing in the summer heat. Lend a hand where we see an opportunity to be a help. Offer a shoulder and a friendly ear to someone who needs it. Be willing to take the time to offer love and friendship where it’s needed today. The world is a scary place so be a light in someones day and share some love.

Today’s Universal Number 

The universal energy we have to help us today is the six. This is the second step on the path of love and it’s focus is on caring for those around us. Six is a multiple of three so there is a creative aspect to our day which will help us do our best to be of help to those we can today.

Today’s Crystals

Rose Quartz seemed a perfect choice to accompany today’s card. It is, after all, a crystal for love, self love, and forgiveness as well as being a heart chakra crystal. My second choice goes in a slightly different direction, and that is Aquamarine. This choice is a throat chakra crystal but its gentle energy encourages compassion and service to others. It’s also a good choice for people who are caregivers. Being a nurse or a caregiver for an ill family member can be a physical and emotional drain. Aquamarine will encourage them to speak up and let people know when they need a break.

Empowerment

Our guides are always speaking to us, giving us signs that quietly direct us along the path we have chosen. When we become aware of the signs we intuitively connect to what our next move should be. These signs can come from any random source, maybe a billboard we pass on the way to work, a fragment of conversation heard while shopping, a book or magazine title, a feeling we get watching an event that tells us we need to do something, even a conversation with a friend or family member can give us just what we need in that moment. Empowerment came forward to let us know that we should be aware of the signs directing us to take action today. Allow intuition to be the guide but don’t make a move until the signs make sense. Once they do, stay focused, be determined and follow the direction. Do what needs to be done. Whatever this is, a work project, something in our personal lives or we are just in the right place at the right time. We will have support and there is the potential that it could turn out well for us. So don’t worry, enjoy the day and pay attention to the signs and rock your personal power today!

Today’s Universal Number

Well here we are at a five day already. I love the energy of the five, it’s exciting because you never know what can happen. Five teaches us to accept that things change and we need to as well. So have fun and go with the flow today.

Today’s Crystals

Everyone wants and need personal power in their live in order to take the appropriate actions in their lives. for this we are working with the lower chakras. So I chose two crystals that will work with them to give us confidence and determination we need to do what we need and want to do. They are Sunstone and Carnelian. Sunstone is all about passion and personal power, leadership and clarity. Carnelian is a terrific go to choice for me. It gives us courage, confidence and empowerment by booting our self-worth.

Practice

It doesn’t matter what we want to be good at. Whether it’s meditating, a sport, a video game, playing an instrument, acting, our job or even a relationship. If we want to be really good at anything it is going to take two things, time and practice. We have to be willing to show up and put in the work if we want to get better and grow what ever that skill might be. Even the people born with a gift in a particular area have to practice and hone that gift into something truly spectacular. Practice came to tell us that if we are trying something new, or re-committing to something we have turned away from, be patient and don’t beat ourselves if we don’t get it right the first time or the second. Growing a skill takes time. Babies fall a lot before they learn to stand and walk. Stay committed and keep trying. Expect a few falls, it’s going to happen so have fun with it, but remember every fall get’s us closer to that moment when we’ve nailed it!

Today’s Universal Number

Today is the 4th of July in America and the universal energy is also a four so we have a double dose of energy going on today. The energy of a four is dependable, efficient and structured. It’s staying committed to what is important. This energy is about building a solid foundation that we can stand on to keep moving forward.

Today’s Crystals

To stay committed to a goal I chose Pyrite and Garnet. Pyrite is a pretty cool option. It can help boost our confidence and get moving toward what ever we need, or want to achieve. Garnet comes in a range of colors but they give us the fire we need, the committment and dedication to an idea, a goal, a person, our family and even to ourselves.

Gratitude & Appreciation

Being grateful and appreciative is important. Yes everyone has bad days. It isn’t easy to see the bright side of anything when we’re up to our ears in the mire that life sometimes heaps on us. One bad attitude spreads like wildfire in a drought and makes life miserable for everyone. How we handle our bad day is a choice we have to make. Gratitude & Appreciation came to tell us that finding the positive is what we might need to do today. A shift in our perspective is all it takes to start turning things around. Look for reasons to be grateful and we’ll find them. Thank you is a powerful word that makes everyone feel better. You didn’t get stuck in traffic. Awesome, Thank you! A co-worker went out of their way to get something done that wasn’t their job. Tell them how much you appreciate the effort. Someone held the elevator for you. The kids finally cleaned their rooms. Tell them thank you and you appreciate it, just don’t mention that you had to tell them five times! Like everything in life, our attitude is a choice. Choose happy and grateful!

Today’s Universal Number

Today’s energy is three. The three energy is light, happy, creative and joyful. What a lovely energy to have at our disposal today!

Today’s Crystals

There are so many crystals to choose from that will assist what every we need to work on. From the quartz family alone, clear quartz, citrine or rose quartz could help someone see the up side to a bad situation, but I chose Iolite and Apatite today. Iolite helps us be appreciative by allowing us to work through and release negative energy and unwanted beliefs and attitudes. Apatite is a crystal the expands the way we think, making us aware of other things going on around us physically as well as metaphysically. By being aware we have the opportunity to change.

Maintain Your Childlike Spirit

Children are interesting, they have a light of innocence that shines brightly from them. Have you ever watched a child climb to the top of the sofa and leap into the air because they were sure they could fly? They are fearless, open, and so unconditional. Children love, trust and share without question or expectation. A young child will not judge or hate or be greedy. Everything is new, exciting and magickal. Sadly this time of openness doesn’t last long. By the time a child begins school, life has already begun to jade them. Maintain Your Childlike Spirit came to let us know that we can change this if we choose. Open up and see the world through the eyes of your inner child. Let that child out, do something fun and remember what it feels like to be excited about life. About all it’s possibilities. Remember lying in the grass and watching ants scurry around, or looking for four leaf clover? Go ahead and give it a try. If there is a zoo near by go hang out, watch the animals and see the look of pure amazement in the children’s eyes. Ask what your inner child like to do today? Then go have some fun!!

Today’s Universal Number

Today’s number is perfect! We have an 11/2 energy and this combination of strength, courage and intuitive energy will come in so handy as we let our inner child out to play! Go and have some fun!!

Inner Child, Today’s Crystals

After giving it some thought I chose Rose Quartz. It seemed like the perfect crystal because it is about love and that is what children do because they don’t know how to do anything else until they are taught. With love there is kindness, mercy, friendship, and so much possibility.

Make a Decision

Of all the decisions we make in a day, how many of them have a truly lasting impact on our lives? It could be said that many of them do to some degree. Decisions in our jobs help us provide for our families. Choices in the supermarket help us put healthy meals on the table. We can decide on the blue shoes or the black ones but what have we done lately for us? Have we made any decisions that will bring us closer to our best versions of ourselves? Is life going the way we want it to or would we like to change something? What is it that needs to change? Do we need a new or better job? Would going back to school be a benefit? Do we need to end a relationship that isn’t working? Are we holding onto limiting thoughts about ourselves or judgmental beliefs of others?People fall into patterns of behavior and expectations that what we live is all there is or ever will be. But, my friends that isn’t so. We have the authority and the permission to make our lives what we choose and Make A Decision is here to let us know that today is a good day to get started being the best us we can be.

Today’s Universal Number 

We are starting out the month of July with a one day. So we may be motivated to get out and get some things done. One is a masculine number, strong, courageous and not afraid to step out into uncharted territory. Let’s tap into that energy and have a great day!

Today’s Crystals 

How cool is it that I just happened to have the exact crystals I needed for the draw with me as I am traveling! For today I have Amethyst and Labradorite. Both work well with our third eye and will help us make choices that will move us forward to becoming our best selves.

Today’s Daily Draw

Clear Out The Old

Whether or not we are aware of it we are always making decisions, changing our minds and working through issues. But, what do we do with the residue of all our decisions and issues? Well we generally hang onto them because letting things go can be so hard. Even when that thing we are hanging onto has emotions wrapped around it, like the memory of a loved one telling us we will never make our dreams come true or something an ex gave us that we can’t seem to throw out. Unfortunately when our lives and minds are cluttered with stuff we no longer need, new things can’t find their way in. Clear Out the Old chose us to let us know that it is safe to release what is no longer needed in our lives. This is never easy but if we are going to move forward it is something we need to do. Letting go is not a once and done thing. It’s a process we must continually work. What do we need to release today? Have we been angry at someone and it’s time to forgive? Do we have issues with work that have been bothering us? Do we have things in our homes that we never use but are still in good shape? Let’s do what we can to let go of what we no longer need and make room for all the wonderful things that are on their way to us!

Today’s Universal Number 

We are ending the month with a master number, 11/2. As you know the 11 is a number of balance, and peace. This is also an energy that is very intuitive and diplomatic. These will come in handy today.

Today’s Crystals

Letting go of things is difficult because it involves more than one Chakra, from our root where we feel safe, our solar plexus where we get our sense of identity to our third eye where we think and form opinions. I am traveling for a couple more days and don’t have many crystals with me but I do have a piece of Garnet. This is a crystal that works well with the root chakra and can bring the fire of committment back to us to allow letting go and moving forward to happen.
