If you could go back in time and do it all over again, would you?
I’m not talking about Marty McFly noting the winning sports teams. I mean reliving your life, making those choices that led you from your start in this lifetime to where you are, now.
Because I wouldn’t. I wouldn’t even entertain the notion.
It’s not because I couldn’t find things to do differently. Oh man, could I!
But I like who I am. I realize, every day that preceded, every choice and every word and every action, helped lead me here. It helped me create who I am, now. I did the best I knew how to in the moment, and through that, I’ve grown. I’ve learned. I’ve experienced. All that stuff I didn’t want helped me clarify what I do want. All the ways I didn’t like being helped me see, how I do like being now.
I don’t believe in guilt. It’s an utterly useless emotion–feeling bad about what cannot be changed poisons us in the present and keeps us from living fully in the now, the single place where we have any power whatsoever. Worry over the future serves a similar function. It takes us out of our now and shifts our experience from whatever goodness we have at our fingertips to virtually living an experience we don’t want.
No. Just, no.
My path is MY path. Those who share the road with me are not inhabitants of my path and my path does not determine theirs. There are no do-overs. There are no try-harders. There is only now, now, now.
This is my cloud. You can come visit if you like and we are vibing similarly. Or not. But right now, it’s a very good idea to be selective, who and what you invite onto your cloud.
As I look over this week, the outstanding impression I get is the importance of staying grounded in your own well-being. It’s anything but a static week. The cues from the outside world may well be inconsistent and fast-changing. Plugging in to the mass consciousness vibe will be like a roller coaster: up, down, fast, slow, hither and yon. Not stable at all! The cues within, you have control over by direction your thoughts and attention. I’m not suggesting you don’t care about the world. I’m suggesting you care about the world and everyone in it (which, ahem, includes you) enough to make sure YOU are not adding to the chaos. How? By consciously managing your own vibe.
Stay in the love, folks. Stay in the love–and if anything or anybody makes you wobble in that love? Retreat and get yourself right back there. You do that, and your light contributes to eradicating the darkness.
You do more good to yourself and the world at large by staying in the love than anything else you can do.
Monday, Two of Wands: No need for a stand-off with conflicting desires (either within you, or between you and another). Just let them all be for now and allow the time for clarity to do it’s work by emerging from the confusion. There’s a tendency to want to push back, push back. But instead, stand back, stand back. Let it marinate today.
Tuesday, Wheel of Fortune: Click, click, click into place. A lucky break may show up, or a bit of good fortune, boom! At your feel. Celebrate it, for sure. But also? Know the days that don’t feel quite as lucky are still filled to the brim with good things. You just have to acknowledge them to turn them up.
Wednesday, Six of Cups rx: Do you have faith? Do you trust? Think of your level of trust and knowing here as “what’s in the water.” The more you drink of it, the greater the blessings you allow in. There is a tendency to question goodness today and look for who’s out to hurt you. Don’t. It’s not a time to count grievances. Turn up your blessings by counting THOSE.
Thursday, Page of Cups rx: Moody, temperamental day for many. The upside? These emotional states are very fast-moving. So if you’re got a mood going you don’t dig, it’s not hard to turn it around with a little distraction and conscious cultivation of the feeling state you’d prefer. And if you’re already feeling what you like? Well, milk it a bit and enjoy the ride. Hugs and naps are great medicine today.
Friday, The Emperor: Care SO MUCH about how you feel that you’re unwilling to compromise on feeling good. So much of our energy can go to trying to please others–an impossible task if ever there was one. You don’t have to be a mirror for the emotional state of others. Instead, be the example for the others to mirror (if they so choose, or not, if they don’t choose). You are in control of your own feelings, so take advantage of that!

Saturday, Seven of Wands: Stand firm in what you know to be true for you and ignore anyone or anything that is not in alignment with your understanding. Shortly, those that don’t vibrate on your frequency will disappear from your circle of experience.
Sunday, Queen of Swords rx: It’s a good time to retreat and sort through what you’ve got going. Be it physical stuff or emotional engagements or whatever, prioritize and sort. Put your attention on what matters to you, what feels good, and let go what does not. This isn’t a judgey thing. It’s a being happier thing.
Overview/Advice, The Hermit: Declare yourself observer and student this week. Rather than emotionally engage in everything you see, step back and study it. Notice and look for trends. Spend plenty of quiet time, alone time, and replenishing time. Meditation is a great idea! Peacefulness and mindfulness helps you stay grounded in the midst of anyone else’s negative emotions. You don’t have to sign on for that class, you know? You can step back and stay out of the storm. In fact, it’s highly advised.
My inner being guides me through my emotions. When you feel bad, it’s not punishment or karma or random chance. It’s a signal, that how you’re looking at the world is not in sync with how your higher self sees it. We may perceive lack and pain and chaos. But in the bigger picture, the way spirit sees the world, everything is happening in the right place at the right time. I know that sounds like a contradiction but it’s not. There is a an infinite diversity to life experience and sometimes even the most unpleasant ones lead beauty and grace. No matter what you’re feeling in any given time, look for the feeling one step up, one step up, one step up. This IS your emotional guidance system and it’s all you need to stay in strong alignment with spirit. The better you feel, the easier it is to remain connected and the stronger that connection is. So just look at all emotion as your inner GPS, guiding you to greater happiness and fulfillment. And for that to work, we must rely on all emotion, wanted or not, since all of it provides valuable information.
Be well out there!
