I love this little exchange between Oprah and Caroline Myss.
For myself, I can feel with I am aligned with my own intuition because I have a clear vision infront of me. I can see the steps I need to take and I can feel what it would be like to acheive that vision.
A theme in this video is the idea of self betrayal. I think the way I betray myself is through fear. Fear of the possibility of hurt, failure, or the compelte shattering of my character.
I was talking to a friend about why it’s been so difficult for me to remain consistant as a “influencer” or blogger. It’s fear. Fear that speaking my truth might hurt the people in my life, fear that in revealing who I am that the world will turn it’s back against me.
But what I realized from this video is that acting in fear is the ultimate betrayal of self. When I act out of dear, I am completely unaligned with my intuition.
q: What can i do today to align my action with my intuition and present my most authentic self to the world?
The Page of Cup represents a call to trust my intuition in my creative and emotional endeavors. I can often hear my inner voice, but ignore its offering based on my “logic” and understanding or because of fear. I need to be open to this call. I also should trust more in that universal intelligence that calls us all to dream the impossible and believe that it could actually come to fruition.
The King of Cups is bekoning me to remember my leadership qualities and my abilities to influence others. He represents a life lived through intention and by playing the long game. To me, he is focused on a vision of abudnace even if the land he stands on seems barren. He knows he can bring out his own success and the success of the people he has influence over.
The Three of Pentacles is my reminder that great works are never accomplished alone. Being willing to admit, “I cannot to this alone” reveals a vulnerability. Each person in my life has a role to play in my life and I need to practive humility by allowing others to help me and practice generosity by helping others. Together we can create a bright vision. This card also reminds me that a plan in itself is not enough. I have to execute the plan in order to reap its benefits.
So, question. If Oprah posed this question to you, what would you say? Share with me in the comments
