Worry? Or Rise?

Worry. Worry. Worry. Fear. Doubt. Worry. Worry. Worry.

What does any of the above words solve? Nothing. 

What do they help with? Nothing. 

Do they heal or hurt? Hurt.

The card that is closely associated to, if not the epitome of, the words above is the ‘Nine of Swords’. That is the card that I drew tonight to write about. 

A few things are associated with this card:

  • Insomnia
  • Anxiety
  • Worry
  • Fear
  • Doubt

If you find yourself in this space, it is so very crucial to remember to simply breathe. Don’t freak out when things seem like they are out of your control. They are out of your control for a reason. That reason is this: YOU ARE NOT IN CONTROL! 

No matter how much you think you are, you are not. At all. 

Now don’t freak out on me here but think about it, we plan our lives before we come to earth. We plan every major event that we face. Now, along the way we have choices about the minor things in life, sometimes even things that are major to us. But these ‘Majors’, are simply non negotiable. They happen. We are not in control of those things. So when they do happen, we have a choice: Embrace it or Run from it. 

If you embrace it, you will see a side of life you never knew was possible. You will finally ‘see’ that wonderful, brilliant light that is you. If you run from it, you will continue to feel hopeless, lost, and anxious for A LOT longer but you will get to that same point of enlightenment. You will just be even more battered and bruised when you do. 

So, it is your choice..

Are you going to worry?

Or are you going to RISE?

Angel Blessings,

The Devil!

The Devil.

-I apologize for some of the language in advance-

This is not going to be a post full of flowery goodness, heads up! haha

Throughout time, The Devil has invoked fear, anger and been the blame behind pretty much every wrongdoing ever.

A little bit about ‘The Devil’: 

Christians believe that the Devil was once an Angel, an Archangel actually, named Lucifer. He rebelled against God and now is wandering the early looking for people to deceive and take to Hell on Judgement day. 

I most definitely, with respect however, call ‘bullshit’ on that whooolllle idea. All of it. Every last bit of it. I don’t believe that The Devil really even exists. Humans are capable of enough evil without some mythical guy running around causing panic and chaos. I have no tolerance or patience for it. 

Let me assure you: There is no Devil. Everything is fine. Go about your business.

Alright, enough of that. The reason I talked about that is because The Devil Card in Tarot gets such a bad wrap. People get scared of it. They don’t know how to accurately tune into the power and wisdom that this card has to offer.

The Devil in Tarot could mean many things. It could mean that you are too bound to the material aspects of life, a slave to trends and fashions. It could indicate addiction as well, overindulgence in pleasures to the point of ruin such as sex, alcohol, fame, money, and drugs. Geez, that sounds horrible doesn’t it? Enough to almost make you want to stop reading this right now and throw away The Devil card from every deck you own! However, before we go off the deep end, let’s continue talking about this card.

You may saying “Andrew, why would this card be one of your favorites when it has such negative meanings?” Here is my answer: The Devil talks about human nature. It talks about the Ego, and being a slave to thoughts that hold us back and keep us from our true potential! Going back to Human Nature, we are all pure creations made of light, in the image of God (or whoever you like to worship or pray to)! This card is a call to RISE UP and not be afraid of who we truly are! 

Our Ego has one job, to keep us from reaching our true potential by employing tactics or fear, worry, stress, negativity, addiction, greed, anger, bitterness, and resentment to keep us trapped in a low vibration so that we won’t receive that guidance we need from heaven! 

The Devil isn’t bad, nor is it negative. It simply a kick in the ass for you and I when we need it, when we are stifled by the cares and concerns of the physical world when it drags us down.

So, what is hold you back? What is The Devil wanting to show you? Are you feeling trapped? Are you self sabotaging? Are you speaking, thinking, and feeling from a negative space, causing self fulfilling prophecies? Are you repeating lies to yourself that are keeping you from your true power and potential?

If you answered ‘Yes’ to any of these, here is some tough love: Cut that shit out. You are ONLY hurting yourself. No matter how hard to cling to bitterness and anger and negativity, it will NOT get you where you want to be. So stop it. 

Ask Archangel Michael and Archangel Jeremiel to shield you from negativity and show you areas that need changing in your life, body, mind, and spirit. After this, how you proceed is your choice and yours alone. 

Angel Blessings!

Patience is a Virtue...but still sucks

Patience is a Virtue…

But let’s get real. Waiting sucks. Waiting for what you really desire is really hard. It is a cruel trick from the universe that we can’t have what we want, when we want it. But you have to think about it like this: What would you do if you never had to wait for anything? You and I would probably become a bit of an ass….just being real. 

The inspiration behind this post is the ‘7 of Pentacles’. I have grown pretty attached to this card, and I still have to say that I still suck at waiting and being patient. It’s a human thing, and I am working on it….stop judging me haha.

For real though, this card is not just about patience and planting the seeds that will grow, this is about having the right type of attitude while you wait. 

I heard a preacher I used to L-O-V-E say this, and I still wholeheartedly agree: “Patience isn’t waiting, it’s how you act while you wait”. 

So, what are you waiting on? A job? A relationship? Money? Remember that how you act while you wait for it determines how fast you will get it! Thoughts, words, actions, and feelings have tremendous power to deter our goals or speed them toward us. 

We just passed the New Moon, so we are in a time of crazy manifestation! So you have to be sure that you are high vibe-ing, and getting your spiritual stuff together! Whatever you are putting your focus and attention on is what you are bringing to you, that is a cold, hard, fact. 

How do you raise your vibration? 

  • Being Grateful
  • Meditation
  • Praying
  • Laughing
  • Listening to happy music
  • Complimenting people
  • Shielding yourself in the light of your favorite color to protect your energy
  • Journaling 
  • Talking to your Angels
  • Playing with your pets
  • Spending time with friends

The list goes on and on….but basically says this : DO WHAT YOU LOVE!! That is the quickest way to a High Vibration!

If you are thinking about negative things, then your life is pretty much going to suck….just being honest…

However, if you are bring positive, then your life is going to reflect that positive and the Law of Attraction will bring what you are putting out into the Universe! 

So, dear buddy, pal, and friend of mine,

Manifest that positivity into your life and don’t get impatient if you don’t see a change within 5 seconds! It’s coming!! I promise!!

Angel Blessings!

Andrew

Be The Empress of your life! You to fellas!

Hello All!

Blog post time, again! 

I have two cards today, ‘The Empress’ and ‘Be You’.

Living authentically is something that has been coming up a lot for a lot of people. Authenticity is honoring all sides and aspects of yourself in a way that is freeing and liberating to you mentally, spiritually, and physically. 

The Empress comes to us as a reminder to nurture ourselves and embrace that feminine energy of receptivity and love. We all want to manifest money, abundance, and prosperity in the physical world, but what about in our spirits? Everything that we see on the outside is a direct reflection of what is going on inside of us. There is a song by Alanis Morissette called “Underneath”, and it is literally my jam (find it linked below) because it talks about the direct correlation between our heart and the physical world. 

The Empress is a gorgeous card, a woman who is in touch with her power and her creativity and her light. You can benefit from her wisdom even if you are a male, so get that notion out of your mind, right now (shakes finger). Be prepared for a lot of work ahead, you are getting tons of guidance right now that is unlocking the person that you want to be and person that Universe says you already are. This guidance is meant to be acted on, not sat around and played with. 

‘Be You’ is telling us that it is indeed a challenge to live authentically, and that it is imperative we take every opportunity to be our true selves.

*Example* I recently got a new District Leader at work and she asked what brought me to DC. I had the option to either say“my roommate and I moved up her for ‘xyz’” or “my boyfriend and I moved up here for ‘xyz’”. 

Being gay isn’t something that I advertise, not that I am ashamed in any way, shape, or form, because I honestly don’t give a shit haha, but I just don’t like to throw it in people’s face, it isn’t necessary to me. But I had the option to care, or not to care. And I decided not to care, and it felt really good!!! So that is my example**

These two lovely cards are telling you to use the power of The Empress to launch yourself into a brand new world of authenticity and badassery! haha 

Much Love,

Andrew

Get Moving...

Hello Lovely people!

So I promised to blog more often, so here I am...again...haha. I try to write things with substance that don't waste your time, so I am going to actually talk about things now haha.

I was shuffling my Lumina Tarot deck, which I do whenever I am sitting at the table in my spare time, and I wanted to pull a card, and write about it. So I drew the 'Maiden of Cups'. This is traditionally the Page of Cups, for those not familiar with Tarot.

The message of this card is to pay attention to and, most importantly, TRUST the information that your Higher Self is giving you. This is a time of new beginnings, and your inner child is influencing you right now so you may be starting to see things and believe things that you once simply wrote off. 

Whatever ideas you are getting, you are supported in bringing them to life! Just make sure that you are fully dedicated to idea or project before you share it with others. This prompts a question: What is this card telling you personally? What dreams, projects, or goals have seemed unreachable in the past? Journal this out if you need to.

Sometimes we lose sight of our dreams and ambitions because life just seems to toss us around like a rag doll, leaving us feeling beaten, bruised, and incapable of achieving greatness.

This is B.S.! You have got what it takes to do more than you have ever dreamed of, and don't let one person tell you anything else. You are an amazing, confident, all around badass! 

GO FOR WHAT YOU WANT!!

Angel Blessings!

Andrew

Be True to You!

Hello Everyone!!

I am feeling very 'bloggy' today, and wanted to just share some guidance with you all, and myself! I drew two cards today, one from the Angel Reading Cards and one from the Lumina Tarot (because I am currently obsessed with it and do everything with it because we are bestest friends haha). Our cards are "Angel of Truth" and "Six of Wands". The Angel of Truth card is a great card to me because it speaks of everyones truth being different. My truth differs from yours, even if only slightly. And yours, from mine.

We can't ask others to shape themselves to fit our truth, and they can't ask us to do the same. Only when we live our truth out loud, can we experience that victorious mindset that the Six of Wands brings! We can't keep going on trying to fit societies definition of 'truth', that honestly does't even exist outside of our own mind. We make our own boxes that we try to cram ourselves into, making ourselves miserable as fuck in the process. And for what? So people that we don't even know that don't care about us at all can approve of us? What kind of life is that? I will answer that, it's a shitty one.

This may be a bit harsh, but we are all at that point where the energy is here to work with, we just need to rid ourselves of the B.S. to fully embrace it. I said this in my Newsletter, 2016 is a '9' year. This means that it is time to FLY! 2015 was practice, getting you ready for the 'big game'. You have to show up and show out this year, and you can do that by living in your truth, and ONLY your truth. That will bring you untold amounts of victory and happiness, and will even influence others to do the same thing!!! 

So get out there you beautiful soul,

Show everyone what a bad-ass you are!

Blessings!

Andrew
