A week ago, I was perusing these existential questions about “How do I move forward in 2021?”, “What are the traits and things that I should develop or look out for?”, and “What tools, ways, or methods should I take to get to where I needed to be ;)?”.
It has been my habit in the past to consult my tarot cards – and other psychic friends and spiritually enlightened fortunetellers – at this time of the year regarding my future. Normally, I devote the first few weeks of January of every year to focus on what I had to do to attain my mission.
I have to admit that 2020 was really a challenge – and in some cases, a nightmare! The covid pandemic, extended family members and friends dying, the downturn in the world economy and in one’s livelihood, and the reality of facing our own mortality any minute and any day makes us think really seriously about our role on this planet and what good we should be leaving behind if we do perish any time.
Hence this blog post.
I took a relatively new tarot deck of “Keepers of the Light” by the young and brilliant psychic and tarot card reader Kyle Gray which I bought a few years back in Bangkok, and made a go at the three-card spread. Just wanting to know what was in store for me in 2021 ;).
Here I summarize the results of my reading.
Your dreams, visions, and goals are becoming reality. Stay focused.
So basically, I picked the card of Isis, a very popular Egyptian winged goddess. She is known as “The Mother” for all goddesses in Egypt. Her popular counterparts in other ancient cultures are Inanna for the Sumerians, and Hera for the Greeks.
Isis is a strong, smart goddess which oversees the fertility of the land, particularly the Nile River-fed Egypt and its inhabitants. She is also known, according to legend, to have traversed the darkness to light, and between the “underworld, heaven and Earth”.
Because of her transcending the dark into the light, Isis can also come to our help in rising above our fears and moving into a space of love.
With Isis’s magical abilities, this goddess will “guide us to bring our dreams into reality”.
Let me quote Kyle Gray’s explanation of Isis’s favorable intervention into our future:
“You are moving into a space where your dream reality is becoming your outward reality. This is an extremely powerful time, and it’s vital to keep focused on the highest good of all. You no longer want to relive your own history, and/or feel unsupported. Acknowledging where you once were and how you have changed that situation around is a powerful force of gratitude that will align you with universal abundance. Discipline and commitment are important now.
Consider that you are moving between worlds when you daydream or create visions and bring life-enhancing ideas into reality. Magic is manifesting all around you – this is exciting!”
So the important take-home message of this card is that “we need to stay focused on our path” to attain our goals – and in my case, to focus on manifesting our dreams and visions to reality 🙂 !
Paul the Venetian
Share your gifts with grace. Waves of inspiration
and love are coming to you.
Paul the Venetian, by virtue of his name, is reportedly a famous Venice-based artist of the Italian Renaissance. A “Keeper of the Light”, Paul is said to have passed away in 1588 but not without leaving us a legacy.
That legacy is to help mankind recognize their creative talents and to channel those talents in the upliftment of those around them. Once we put those creative talents to good use, we “make space in our heart for goodness”.
So Paul really has our best interests in mind. Call on him when you are in need of channeling your skills and talents to good use for the improvement of not just yourself but also humanity.
This is what Paul the Venetian wants to convey to those who felt inadequate of their creative prowess, quoting Kyle:
“You may have felt blocked or held back in the past, but now it’s time to recognize how talented you really are. Follow your bliss and share your grace. Your creativity is a gift to the world, and as you share it with all those around you, you make space in your heart for goodness to enter.”
You have learned from experience. More inner study is now required
to further progress.
So the first two cards are about “making magic” by overcoming and transcending one’s fears with Isis’s help, and channeling our creative energies and gifts with the guidance of Paul the Venetian. Both are very “active cards”, meaning the cards basically instruct us to move forward by becoming bold with our creative gifts and holding our destinies in our hands.
The third card is Melchizedek and he represents Higher Learning.
Melchizedek is a High Priest described in the biblical Book of Genesis. He is reportedly here to help 3rd dimensional humans go through the ascension process, which, according to Kyle, is “to bring everyone back into a state of love and harmony”.
Supposedly a King and a High Priest, at the same time, during biblical times, Melchizedek goes around with his order of light-bestowed priests to help spiritual people work on their qualities and gifts. Since he works on a very high energetic level, it is recommended that we liaise with him through “sacred geometry and by focusing on ancient star-shaped symbols”.
Kyle’s quote on this is precise and on-point: “You have learned so much to this point and are learning more every day. You are recognizing all the great lessons your experiences and challenges have brought to you and are preparing for a transition or inner ascension where you will move beyond another level of fear and into the inner sanctum of your heart and soul. Become aware of patterns, ancient symbols and signs being sent to you from the universe.”
Since I am apparently able to connect and focus better on my mission now – but still much to learn in the path of ascension — and can offer much more light to those who are in need of it, Kyle recommends connecting to Melchizedek and his order of learned and benevolent high priests “through meditation and connecting with their light”.
Melchizedek’s card came at a time when I was feeling kinda lost with what the world or society wants you to do versus what your heart tells you to do. My inner knowing let me realize that we need to go “inward” to find the answers to our heart’s desires. Most of the time, we listen to our head and the thoughts that swamp it. But, our mind can be influenced by so many entities that might not have the best or positive intentions for us in the long-term. It is a struggle to remain logical and level-headed with our life’s mission amidst our daily efforts to survive in this three-dimensional, troubled world.
So this card was very timely in its appearance in this stage of my lifeJ! My advice to you all is when you arrive at a crossroads in your life, and you want to achieve some or full clarity with how you will move forward or take the next step to your rosy future, sit down, meditate and go inwards. Be still and keep your mind and body clear and calm.
When the mind is already still, then you can think better of the solution to your problem or concern. Sometimes, the answer you seek will not pop out immediately and may just come out in your 2nd or 3rd meditation session. That is okay! You might not have the answer immediately, but you attain peace of mind and body – and that is the beginning of the revelation to your question.
Namaste and I wish you the best that could ever be for your life and happiness in this New Year 2021 :)!
