Glinda's Guidance for the week of 9/07/2015 - Shadow Side Comes to Play. Don't Hold Yourself Back!
Note: Our divine conversation was opened with the bold, graphic and profound, Ellis Deck by Taylor Ellis this week. Reading pictured above.
The energy of the week: (The Devil) Hello shadow side, we see you've come to play! We've been doing so much spiritual work and energy clearing these past few weeks that look who has come to play... the Devil. This energy is a wonderful reminder to us to take an inward look and peek behind the curtain of our own Wizardry ways to see exactly what is left behind that stands in the way of our spiritual evolution. Are you seeking instant gratification for your efforts? If so, know that is your shadow side encouraging you to stay in the hypnotic rhythm of Munchkinland. "Oh, but, I DID kill that witch when my house landed on her so, I will accept the lollipop from the guild as my reward and just sit tight in Munchkinland." Hmmm... doesn't seem like we'll be clicking our heels anytime soon with this approach.
The lion says: (Magician) have the courage to create your own destiny. You have everything you need, all the knowledge, resources, emotional fortitude and the passion to make it happen There is no need to "fake it til you make it" as there is nothing to fake - be yourself - show 'em the magic behind your tricks - do not be afraid to be vulnerable. Your authenticity will be appreciated beyond measure. When you are taking inspired action in support of your life's purpose it will feel effortless to you and seem magical and inspirational to others. So go on now... be your magical self and create your reality.
The scarecrow says: (8 of Swords) oh dear, you are still holding yourself back with your thoughts. This too is the pull of the Devil / Ego / Witch - trying to keep you bound to play small. What is it you are telling yourself? I'm not good enough... not worthy... can't do it? Who could possibly desire what I have to offer? How could I possibly earn any income from doing and being only that which I love? ALL of these are nothing more than illusions. These thoughts are the little flying monkeys the Witch sends out to get you to turn back. Remember, you wear the ruby slippers, you have a deeper purpose in life and you are meant to pursue it! But, to pursue it means you must take action and change what you are doing and/or being and this little lady in the 8 of Swords has shown up to say to you... stop resisting the flow!
The tin man says: (6 of Coins) put all of your loving energy into giving of yourself this week. It simply warms the heart to help another and when you do you will feel rich in your soul. This is what will begin to tip the scales so that you can feel your profound energetic value. Watch that you don't allow the scales to tip too far though and over give. Part of this lesson will be to graciously receive; from compliments to a cup of coffee - say yes and thank you and recognize that the Universe is paying you for playing your part in elevating the energies of the earth. Allow this energy exchange to help you recognize your beautiful value.
Toto's advice for you: (9 of Wands) Toto wants to let you know that with all of this vulnerability, clearing out of false beliefs and giving your time and energy; you will have to protect and honor your boundaries. Stand firm in your values, mission and purpose but also in your love of self. Do not allow the energy vampires in to your home. And trust me they WILL show up for you this week. Once you shine your light and start giving freely and authentically - out come those who wish to draw their own energy boost from your energy field. Be willing to say NO! Extend your olive branch with cloves of garlic - the energy vampires will be repelled but lovingly intended guests will appreciate the healing properties you offer.
A Special Note: The Tower jumped out for us this week - be aware that your boundaries may come down suddenly, vampires may be revealed from within your inner circle and things may change for you unexpectedly. You've been preparing for these moments, embrace them now as opportunities to build new boundaries for yourself in loving support of living your life's purpose.
Watch the skies, the wicked witch is sending out her army of flying monkeys for you this week! Remember, they are simply your fears, false beliefs and nagging thoughts that are trying to send you back to Munchkinland. And the closer you get to the Emerald City the sleepier you may feel as you find the poppy field. Treat yourself to a cup of spiritual coffee! Get inspired and power through!
