Make It Happen!
Make It Happen!
Anyone who has ever turned a dream into a reality will tell you it takes inspiration, hard work, tenacity and confidence. Most people have hopes and dreams. Some people have a hard time turning a dream into a logical goal.
Once we have a clear goal, we need vision for the future. Many people rely on their spirituality to help them envision and manifest their future. Whether through prayer, meditation, affirmation or visualization, we all have spiritual tools that we can use to make real things happen.
Three Spiritual Ways to Make It Happen
We all know the power of prayer. Here are three more things you can do to focus your energy and manifest your goals.
1. Write it down. Whether you use a quill and parchment or your smartphone, setting your intentions in written word is a powerful way to make them a reality.
2. Burn a candle. Quiet your mind and focus on the candle. As the flame rises, visualize your dream becoming a reality.
3. Say an affirmation. Whether you simply affirm your goal as a current reality, such as “I now have a successful business” or affirm your ability to be successful, your positive affirmation helps to create your reality.
The Week in Review
This week, in honor of Mother’s Day, I designed a four-card tarot spread called “Roots and Wings.” You can watch a video of me performing the spread, read about it and perform it yourself, on my personal blog.
On our Community Blog, Linda Moore shared a wise piece about meditation, yoga and the Seven of Swords. Read “Consider Meditation to Turn Old Habits into New Beginnings”.

Theresa Reed’s “Mad Hookups” for May are helpful, funny and resourceful. Plus, she included a link to one of my recent blog posts! Thanks, Theresa!
Lisa Boswell is a Gypsy Fortune Teller in the United Kingdom. She has shared a blog post about Romany spiritual beliefs and practices. If you are curious about what it means to Lisa to be a Gypsy, check out Lisa’s blog!
This is a favorite piece of mine. If you’ve read it before, read it again. There is so much power and knowledge here. It’s called “Why it’s Crucial for Women to Heal the Mother Wound”.
Use Tarot to Define your Goal
If you are stuck trying to create a real and doable goal based on your hopes and dreams, tarot can help you! Follow these steps to define your goal.
First, look through your cards. Select five cards that represent your hopes and dreams. Spend some time thinking about these cards. Are these energies now present in your life? What do these cards have in common? What do they say about you?
Now, put these five cards to the side.
Shuffle the remaining deck, and think about your fears and obstacles. What keeps you from success? Pull three cards at random. Interpret them as your barriers and impediments. What can you do to remove them? Is there a way you can use these energies to help you, rather than hurt you?
Now, take the five cards you chose to represent your hopes and dreams, and the three cards you drew at random to define your obstacles. Look at all eight images. Do they give you any ideas or thoughts? Do these cards tell you anything about yourself, or your path?
Finally, shuffle only these eight cards, while asking this question.
“What do I need to know or do to define the goal that will serve my highest good?”
Draw one card to answer the question.
This meditative process with the images and energies of tarot should help you define and set a clear goal for your future.
What’s up on the Psychic Café?
This week I am featuring an early episode of Christiana’s Psychic Café with Nancy Evans Bush. Nancy is the author of “Dancing Past the Dark: Distressing Near Death Experiences”. Nancy’s personal experience sent her on a journey to research near death experiences. She approaches this from a spiritual perspective that is hopeful and healing.
You can watch this fascinating episode on my YouTube channel at your convenience.
Card Two: Clover
As you might expect, Clover is a card of quick luck. This card may encourage gambling and risk taking, or predict a happy chance meeting.
Whenever you see Clover, you can assume a bit of luck is coming. The question and the surrounding cards determine the type of luck.
The timing of Clover is quick. When you see this card, you can expect something to happen soon.
Clover may tell you to take advantage of a time-sensitive opportunity.
Like Card One, Rider, which we discussed last week, Clover is considered a positive card. Clover can lighten the mood of a dark card.
The caution that comes with Clover is this. Luck comes quickly, but it dissipates just as quickly. Clover may bring a random happiness, a great opportunity, or a win at the casino. Don’t expect the luck of the Clover to last, however.
Clover may refer to gambling, casinos, or, very literally, an herb garden.
The playing card association for Clover is Six of Diamonds. The interpretation for this is the reassurance that the help you need will be available to you at the right time. This is very similar to the related Six of Pentacles in tarot.
Next week, we will explore Card Three of the Petit Lenormand system, Ship.
Your One-Card Weekly Reading
Your one-card reading this week is the Three of Pentacles.
Typically, the Three of Pentacles is a great card for career growth and development. This card suggests creativity, recognition and reward in the workplace.
Often, this card appears to acknowledge your hard work, and your success.
If you are seeking a more rewarding career, or advancement in your current career, this card is here to remind you to believe in your success, and work toward it.
If you do not have or need a career, the Three of Pentacles reminds you to take your hobbies and interests seriously. Develop your talents, explore your creativity, and make these things a priority. Be willing to share your talents with others.
The Three of Pentacles is also a positive money card, suggesting financial improvement and stability.
This week, focus on doing things well, learning and growing. Believe in your success, whatever that means to you.

The Four Elements and the Major Arcana

The four elements of life are Earth, Air, Fire and Water. They each have metaphysical properties as well as physical properties.
The four elements correlate with the four suits of the Minor Arcana of the tarot. They also correlate with individual cards of the Major Arcana.
The term “Major Arcana” means “Greater Secrets.” The twenty-two cards of the Major Arcana contain the most spiritual messages and lessons of the tarot, and tell the story of our journey through life.
When we learn the elemental associations for each of the Major Arcana cards, we have a clear way to understand these important cards.
