Language of Heart Alchemy Cards
Read by Charlene Maguire
For the card pull this week, the theme of truly being yourself came up. It always sounds so simple when we hear that doesn’t it? “Just be yourself.” Some of us have been pleasing others for so long that we’ve either forgotten how to “be ourselves” or don’t even know who we really are anymore. We are so busy juggling the different roles that we play for others that we need to take the time to reconnect with ourselves.
For anyone reading this who is new to oracle cards: Oracle and Tarot cards are a wonderful but sometimes misunderstood tool. They are one of many ways to help us learn to communicate directly with our higher selves and partner with spirit, and receive wisdom and guidance on the decisions we need to make. The cards can be an amazing communication and navigational system to help reflect the energy currents of the present moment in your life. This is not about prediction in any way… more like the energetic weather report of the story already in motion. All of us are on some form of a path to personal mastery, and oracle cards can be like an ongoing friendship that supports you in the areas of your life that you need it most.
Question: Is this realistic?
Message: Earth is cautious when approaching things. Earth is more practical, realistic, and needs solid footing before going forward. Dig your heels in and really ponder things, analyze, and create an organized structure and plan. Earth is dependable, thorough, and solid. Earth enjoys engaging the physical world and mastering it through efficient organization. Earth is realistic, practical, patient, enduring, and stable.
Wherever you are in your life right now, whatever you’re doing or not doing, just stop.
Breathe one more time.
As everyone else’s lives and needs and agendas spin around you, just look at it (like you’re watching a movie), and then detach. Turn off the phone. Turn off the Tv. Turn off the computer. Turn off the ipad. Take off your shoes and go walk in the dirt, grass, sand. Connect with the physical world that your body lives in here, on earth. Connect with your senses. What do you smell, taste, hear, feel in your body? The structure will be easier to see through the chaos once we are grounded.
Question: Where can you be more fully present?
Message: To follow your heart’s intelligence means to fully embody it. Integrate this into your be-ing to be fully real, present, and connected to all areas of your life. Then you will be able to experience greater levels of creativity, intuition, performance, clarity, and higher thinking. Your heart gives you access to your soul’s wisdom and the wisdom of the Universe!
This card builds off of Earth Element. Once you are in a state of being more embodied, and not swirling around in the ether of everyone else’s wants, needs, anxiety, and roles they want you to play for them, tune in even deeper to yourself. Get quiet. You will be amazed at what you’ll be able to receive from higher places once you do this. Clarity and creative ideas will start to move through you easier the more you are connected to your true essence.
Question: Where are you not being you?
Message: Acting in front of an audience for entertainment is one thing. Slipping into mimicry of another behavior, way of being, voice, color, shape, or form in order to disguise yourself to stay safe is another. Chameleons are masters of disguise in the animal world. In the emotional people world it is usually because we are uncomfortable with ourselves.Try being yourself for a change.
So now you’ve tuned into your earth element, and connected with the true intelligence of your heart. Once you know more of who you really are, you can see where you’ve been mimicking others too much, and where you’ve been a great actor in your life by playing the roles that others want you to play. Where have you been allowing yourself to change colors to be more like someone else in order to “fit in?” We all have shapeshifting abilities, but the key is to know when, where, and how to use them. Don’t try to stay safe, because it’s not really safe to hide yourself.
