Goals and Distractions
Goals and Distractions
Keep Your Focus and Attain Your Goal
Wouldn’t it be great if the world and everyone in it would cooperate when we are focusing on an important goal? Sometimes we are lucky enough to have the wind at our backs and our success come with ease. Most of the time, however, the opposite is true. We find ourselves struggling not only to achieve our goals but also to cope with the life that is happening in the meantime.
It can be important to acknowledge the things that are going wrong in life, and to take time to make corrections, or to give yourself time to grieve, adjust, or heal. Yet, often we don’t have that luxury; our path demands that we focus on the goal and go for it, even under difficult circumstances.
When that is the case, we need to hold ourselves accountable even when we feel overwrought. We need to acknowledge our upsets, but never let those hurts distract us from our journey. Most importantly, we need to know that success is possible even when the sailing isn’t smooth. We need to remember that we have support from the Universe even in the midst of the storm.

Find Focus with the Tarot Fours
The tarot fours offer great lessons in staying in your lane, keeping your boundaries, and being true to your goal.
The Major Arcana four, the Emperor, reminds us that stability comes from responsibility, even when you have to fight to fulfill it.
The Four of Pentacles, though often thought of as a card of selfishness, reminds us that self-care and boundaries are important.
The Four of Swords reminds us of the focus that can come from meditation, quiet, and taking time away.
The Four of Wands teaches us that creativity and passion can flourish within a stable structure.
The Four of Cups asks us to make do with what we have when we must, or to wait for something better when we can.
The next time you are feeling distracted from your path, use the lessons of the tarot fours to get back on track!
The Week in Review
This week I posted a piece about new tarot businesses and the problems they encounter.
I also shared the video from my most recent informal tarot business conversation with Jenna Matlin on YouTube. There, and in the upcoming events section of this newsletter, you will also find information about our next free online meeting.
From Around the Web
I found this piece from a few years ago on Elephant Journal. It offers some ways to clear the energy in your home.
From Medium, another helpful older piece on false positivity and spiritual bypass.
Here is a piece on avoiding healer burnout from Tiny Buddha.
Cards for Your Consideration
Today I want to share a new trend in tarot packaging by U.S. Games Systems, Inc.; Small tins of tarot!
These smaller decks are easy to shuffle and carry, but still large enough to work with well. The tins aren’t indestructible, but they are a safe and secure way to carry your cards.
Whether you are traveling, camping, or just a tarot reader on the go, these convenient decks are easy, fun and functional. If you want a smaller deck to stash in your desk drawer at work, these do nicely. If you get caught in the rain, the tins are waterproof!
The best part is, they aren’t expensive, so you can indulge your inner tarot collector!
