Clarity at the center of the reading asks you to slow down and make space for the quiet to descend, to allow your mind to empty so you can hear the answers you have been seeking. In this state, peace can come in, and worry and stress fall away. When we sit in deep peace it allows us to see clearly the answers that have been evading us. Although we can ask for guidance from others, and even the universe, ultimately the answer to our question always comes from within.
The sword of truth represented in the Silver card, to the left of the Clarity card, is coming in to show that the answers you receive from your higher-self will be sure and true. Do not doubt your inner guidance at this time. The moon shown in the card is helping to illuminate the truth, and bring an end to any confusion you may have had in the recent past regarding this issue. The cycle of murkiness and doubt is now over.
Archangel Sandalphon, depicted with master number 22, talks about balance, intuition, manifesting your highest ideals and desires and working to develop your spiritual path and soul purpose. By making time to savor and appreciate the small joys in life instead of always striving for the 'firework' moments, and in really listening to the whispers of your soul you will gain the clarity you are seeking. Sandalphon is also the patron of music and the earth star chakra (located 12-18 inches below the feet). Sandalphon calls on you to really pay attention to nature, to music, to color, to any little thing that brings you even a small sense of joy and satisfaction.
The wisdom of the three main cards leads us to the message at the base of the reading, the Beacon card. Once you truly appreciate all of the fine details surrounding you and find your truth by becoming quiet and at peace, your true soul light is revealed for all to see. You become a beacon of shining light. Master number 44 talks about stability and support, becoming a 'beacon of light' provides support to all whom you are connected to. Even if you do not realize it, you will have a positive and uplifting effect on everyone who surrounds you.
The crowning energy of the reading comes in the Red card depicting master number 55. The number 55 relates the message that it is time to let go of outworn ideas and perceptions that are keeping us stuck in fear and doubt, in order to usher in new and better opportunities. The peace pipe and the wise native elder at the head of the reading is reiterating the message of deep peace to be found by becoming quiet and listening to your inner wisdom. The color red relates to the root chakra, once again symbolizing our connection to the earth. When this chakra becomes unbalanced fear and insecurity can creep in, especially when there is no calm to counterbalance the chaos that comes with everyday life. The process of finding your center/clarity may be more easily accomplished by going in nature and becoming grounded with the healing energies of the earth. Do not ignore the wisdom of mother earth, she has much to offer to soothe the battle weary soul.
In this week of finding clarity by going within, I'd like to recommend a simple grounding meditation. Find a quiet place where you will not be disturbed and close your eyes. Take a few slow, deep, cleansing breaths. Imagine a deep brick red glowing light at the base of your spine. As you envision this light, imagine that the light starts to grow roots down your legs, through the bottoms of your feet, deep into the earth. Continue to breathe deeply as you visualize your roots planted deep in the core of the earth, providing stability and safety. Now visualize a column of bright white light coming into the crown of your head and running through the central line of your spine along the same axis as the roots you have planted within the earth. Imagine this warm, cleansing light filling you with peace and relaxation. Continue to breathe rhythmically while holding this visualization. After a few minutes allow the white light to recede and your roots to retract up from the earth back into the soles of your feet. Take a couple more deep cleansing breaths and open your eyes. You should now feel more centered, relaxed, and at peace.
Finally, if you find meditation to be too difficult please try listening to some peaceful music. There are many wonderful chakra specific healing music tracks on YouTube. One I found recently that has been helpful is linked below and is produced by Jason Stephenson - Chakra Healing Music.
Peace and Blessings to you in this upcoming week.
