Spiritual Message/ Update April 23, 2011

Dear Friends,

The weather has been very interesting lately, as many of you know. It feels as if the earth is purging herself of negative energies and influences that have built up. I hope all of you are safe and sound and enjoying life.  Let me share a few things with you.

  • I will be doing a class on Intuition. There are two options for days and times. Either 2 hours Saturday May 28th and 2 hours Sunday May 29th or 4 hours on Saturday May 28th. I will let you decide which works best. Majority will rule. $75 for the weekend.
  • There are two specials that I will be running, but you may not combine them. 1.) If you schedule a reading from April 27th-May 4th you will get your reading for $35. So make your appointment fast before the spots fill up! 2.) If you buy 3 gift certificates you get one for free, from now until May 20th.
  • There will be a Gypsy Tea Party in June (probably the weekend of the 10th) a combination of fun, tealeaf reading and learning. You will get an individual tealeaf reading with me, plus you will join in a group to learn how to do your own readings. Should be a blast! If interested email or call.

  • And a big thanks to those of you whom I met at the Ladies Night Out in Covington, and to the familiar faces who came back!

Spiritual Message 

Remember that there is wisdom in letting go. Its time to let go of all the things that weigh you down and that no longer bring you joy. Far to often we hold onto things much longer than we need to. Once you have outgrown something you have to release it or you keep yourself from pulling into your awareness the next beautiful gift. 

I want you to look at the people, objects, feelings, beliefs and ideas that you are holding onto. Which one is worn out? Which ones have you totally outgrown? Which ones have begun to choke the life out of your new dreams, wishes and goals? 

Allow your awareness to go to the things in your life that act as black holes sucks, absorbing and totally eating away your enthusiasm and energy. Trust you intuition and know that often the first thing you go to is the right thing… start letting go there!

This message is so relevant right now. As I said before the Earth is purging itself of the old and worn out. Like her we must do the same. With the wind and the rain comes a sense of cleansing and renewal. Allow it to wash you clean. Allow the beautiful white light of the divine to enter your existence and bring healing.

Best Wishes,

Shaheen

Waking Among Kings and Cards

I woke up not having much sleep. It’s hard sometimes at night to actually fall asleep even if my body and mind are tired because so many things start going through my head. I’m one of those people who constantly thinks about everything and when its time for bed… that’s when my mind decided to work the hardest.

Today I pulled a few cards for insight into the day and the energy around me and what I turned over was very interesting. First card that I had was the Ace of Hearts; those aces are relentless in following me these days. Following that card the 9 of Clubs and then the King of Spades.

The ace of hearts is a powerful card because it speaks of change and new beginnings. Aces are always cards that remind us of the powerful energy of whichever suit it resides in. This is a card that speaks to me about connections with people, relationships are changing and facets of my life with others will begin to die away. This card brings with it a storm of emotions that beg me to take a crucial look at my life and to see what or whom is really necessary for me to be happy.

The 9 of spades represent challenges and the search of truth. It’s the card of the seeker or someone who should start to seek a little more. I can see this card as a sign that I am standing at the edge of something, the door to a brilliant castle… wonders and possibilities waiting, if only I would knock. The 9 of spades highlights my apprehension to change and the things that lie in front of me. Though I am constantly enthusiastic about bringing new energy into my life, I tend to be a little resistant to it at fist.

I am very drawn to this card; very fascinated by the profound truth it holds. I keep hearing the words resistance and denial as I look at it. The closer I look, the deeper I feel, the more I realize that this card isn’t so much about inviting new energy into my life… its more about saying goodbye to the old and worn out.

The third card in this reading was the King of Spades. A fierce energy that has made it his purpose to abolish opposing forces. The King of spades stands as a guardian silently watching me, with a demeanor that chills to the bone and bites like fire. I know that he has come into my life to protect and cast away the things that have worked to block me and weigh me down.

It is interesting to me because the King of Spades is a very forceful energy at times, yet his focus makes him seem almost gentle. His force isn’t the type of egocentric and dominating energy that makes you feel small and worthless… it’s a mighty energy that makes you feel as if you are in the arms of a great protector whom will defend you regardless of fame or glory.

After my restless night last night, I realize that I am in the process of a great and awesome shift of thinking. I am learning to be in synch with my intuitive self and the Universe. I think I am restless because I know that deep inside I need to shake clean my spirit and allow my truest self to emerge. No more pretenses, no more holding back, only pure, raw and uninhibited living!

Ace of Diamonds

I keep fiddling with a new deck of linen finish playing cards that I bought the other day. I have a fascination with cards in general and I’ve been wanting to buy a deck of regular playing card for a bit now. I like the idea of holding something in your hands that to most people seems so plain and ordinary, but actually has many, many secrets to tell.

This seminally ordinary deck of cards has kept me entertained for the past few days.I just sit here at the table shuffling, flipping, observing and shuffling again. In doing this simple ritual I have had a few “jumping” cards… and over and over again I seem to get the Ace of Diamonds. A wonderful card to get I might add.

The ace of diamonds is a card of new beginnings and new projects. Its a card that tell us we are on the path to success, prosperity and security. This card is often a sign from the universe that the things you have worked so hard to dream up, believe in and manifest are now coming true. Diamonds are beautiful stones created from heat, stress, pressure and time… often the very things we put into our goals. The ace of diamonds is the herald of good energy and new opportunity.

I love that this card keeps appearing in my life because its totally relevant. I am in the process of planning a trip to London for work… looking for housing and saving to pay for it. I am immersing myself in designing. And I have been seeing so many things growing and expanding with my readings and writing. Its powerful right now… the alignment of intention and manifestation.

I continually practice gratitude and faith in Spirit knowing that each thing shall fall into place and that I am deserving of the absolute best! I think that’s the Ace of Diamonds reminder to us, “The best is yours for the taking… just open the door and invite it in.”

Much Love,

Shaheen

A Night With the Gypsy

Last night was wonderful. I was invited to do readings at a small boutique called Ottoman Imports in Covington, Ky… for Ladies Night Out! It was a blast. The shop is a quaint little place, filled with flowing scarfs reminiscent of Morocco and beautiful silky garments beaded and embroidered like old kimonos. It felt nice to be in a place that vibrated with such color and passion. And the court yard where I did readings… was even more etherial.

The night start with a sense of electric in the air, that feeling before a storm as if you have your hand on the pulse of the great mother. The wind swirled around me and the night fell gently on our shoulders inviting us to dance with the mysterious characters of the tarot. I was out back in a small and inviting courtyard, under a spacious canvas tent. I made sure I brought a fabulous scarf, one of my favorite decks of cards and the openness to touch the wisdom of the universe.

People started making their way into the shop, escorted to the courtyard by the lovely owner. Sitting down to take a peak at what may be going on “out there”. Right before laying out the cards I always get this surge of energy, part anxiety and part anticipation. Its not every day you sit down for an arranged meeting with spirit… there is something reverent about the whole experience. I think everyone last night knew it too.

Conversing with people through the night, many card and many stories told… it was wonderful. Eventually we had to relocate the reading table to the inside of the boutique because the wind decided he wanted to be a little more wild than we could handle. It was great though. Right before we went inside, the wind had picked up jerking the canvas tent from side to side like a helpless paper bag. But the woman whom i was reading and I just laughed and laughed… we thought it was grand. But for our safety we made our way in.

The inside was just as magical and people didn’t seem to mind the change of scenery, besides you can read no matter where you are… I’ve read on busses in Mexico and the busy streets of big cities. We marched on reading and chatting, peaking and planning. All of the people whom I read for were amazing, wonderful stories and wonderful wisdoms. You know the cards talk to everyone who is at the table… regardless of who shuffled.

A duo of ladies came at one point and they loved there readings. They cried, they laughed, they hugged, they got sassy, they told stories… and they cried again. Later I heard that they kept crying all the way down the street. The one woman was asked if she was okay and her response was, “I am so amazing right now… so happy” and on and on she sobbed. Readings are cleansing for sure.

The night ended with a group of 5 wild and wonderful ladies. All goddesses in their own right and the best of friends. We sat circled around a small table in the shop front of this boutique watching the night walkers pass the window as we took one last walk in the wonderland of tarot. One by one they asked their questions and shuffled their cards… It really was one big reading part. 5 women, one reading. They were all just listening so that they could “help” each other remember their session. So fun.. so so fun!

We said our goodbyes and I headed home. It was such a magical night to be out. The wind and the rain and the energy was just alive and inspiring. I cannot wait to do it again. There is so much excitement in groups of people. Being there it really inspired me to get myself in gear to be doing classes… so look for that soon

All the best,

Shaheen

Spiritual Message

Trust in the wisdom of this season and allow positive changes to come into your life. Many of you are feeling like simplify and cleansing many parts of your life and I urge you to trust in this intuitive wisdom. Each thing that you own, person that you let into your life, and belief that you hold as the truth takes your energy and becomes a spiritual investment.

As you move things out of your life and simplify you free up more energies, which you are able to put into manifesting the things that you have been dreaming of all winter. It is time for a Spiritual Spring Cleaning!

Move out the old and let in the new and begin to celebrate this positive change. You will be finding yourself craving alone time more and more over the next few weeks. Take some time for a ceremonial walk and start to listen to the subtle hits of your intuition.

Notice too, what signs your body is giving you. Cravings can often be signs of things that you need in your diet. Don’t confuse a craving for an addiction. I notice that I often crave water, which we could all use more of, and when I drink it I not only feel more healthy, but also more intuitive.

Listen to Your Body, Heal Your Life

I have lately taken the time to really focus on what I am putting my energy into, what I am intending into my reality and I have been making an effort to align myself with spirit daily. The more connected I begin to feel the more spiritually cleansed and empowered I am. The expression, “Prayer is the act of asking spirit and meditation is the act of listening” has really held true for me.

I have always known that our thoughts and beliefs shape our reality. Not only do they shape the experiences we have in our daily lives, but also they shape our health. Each issue that we have in our body is a reflection of the things that we are holding in our spirit as the truth.

Working with people doing readings and working on my on health physically, mentally and spiritual has opened my eyes to many things about the nature of energy, intention and manifestation. I am baffled by how interconnected all of these things are. From this I have concluded a truth that everything is connected in one big ring, nothing is separate.

It all begins with energy; the energy of your words, your actions, you feelings, beliefs and fears. Whatever you allow to enter into your awareness on a daily bases becomes the commands that our psyche follows and whatever the psyche internalizes becomes the fabric of our reality. Whatever you energetically hold as the truth intricately weaves into existence the life that you now know.

It is interesting because you will find that this process begins in the mind and the emotions. We start to develop psychological patterns, many of which begin at a very young age (from the time you are born until you are around 5 is the key time of internalizing patterns). It is these psychological patterns that begin to weave into our energy field.

If you hold limiting and negative psychological patterns as your truth, then your health is sure to suffer. I know that I have had many experiences where this has held true. One of the most revealing was a few years ago after sustaining severe emotional and physically trauma.

That was a time of twilight for me because I was dealing with so many things at one time. I had to not only focus on my emotional health, but physically my body needed to heal and regain its strength. I worked hard to cycle out emotional debris of pain, hurt and fear. At one point I found myself covered in large inflamed bumps that ran from my spine around my side. They were extremely painful and appeared over night. I saw a doctor and discovered that I had shingles. I instantly knew that this was a physical response from my psyche trying to ride itself of toxins. The negative energy that had built within me literally bubbled to the surface.

Whenever you develop an illness, disease or any sort of physical trauma you need to instantly ask yourself, “What have I allowed into my mind and spirit?” It is when we internalize a mental/emotional pattern that it becomes part of our psyche/spirit and starts to affect the body and on a larger scale.

Your life and health is the manifestation of all the things that you hold as your personal truths. This means that you are the one in control, even if you may not feel that way. You just have to realize how much power you have and work to undo what can be a lifetime of negative manifestation.

The first step is to realize what cords your have created. Energetic cords are the things that we energetically attach ourselves to. They are the results of psychological patterns. For example: If you tend to have negative relationships, a cord has developed between you and your dysfunctional partner; which has allowed them to take your energy and in some cases you to take theirs.

This means that the underlying pattern is that you may feel unloved. Maybe you have accepted into your psyche the “truth” that you will never find someone who accepts you. In turn you may have recently developed a heart issue.

So in order to clear your life of negative lovers and your body of a broken heart, you must change the belief that you have internalized. There is an esoteric law that says, “When one thing is moved in time and space, another thing must fill its place.” So if you are to dissolve the belief that you are “unlovable”, you must then adopt a new truth.

Once you have worked with yourself, very patiently, you can rearrange your beliefs and recreate your life. This process of healing starts with a few things. The two most important that I have found are forgiveness and gratitude.

Forgiveness allows you to cut the energetic cords that may exist between you and the limiting beliefs that have over taken your life so that you can regain your power and consciously manifest. I worked extensively on forgiveness when I was healing. When the negative energy that I had taken into my spirit bubbled to the surface, I had to forgive myself for letting such negative energy into my life, and forgive the people that I thought were suppose to love me and protect me for not being able to live up to the roles that I had assigned them.

By forgiving I no longer had any expectations for others or myself that would allow guilt to build. I was able to internalize the truth that people do the best they can at any given time.

Gratitude comes after forgiveness. Gratitude is like the sunshine to the seed. If you shine your light of gratitude onto the things that you have manifested into your life then you will begin to get more of what you have. Your prosperity, health and love will all multiply.

You must be honest, patient and willing to change in order for these things to work.If you are interested in actively manifesting the life you want then I suggest keeping a journal and asking yourself these questions:

What in your life has been bothering you?

What has really been eating at you, occupying your daily thoughts?

What problems continually reoccur in your life?

What chronic health problems do you have?

Who in your life really bothers you?

What do you dislike about yourself?

Remember that people, illnesses and events are all mirrors to the things that we have accepted as our truths and internalized into our spirits. If something is chronic in your life, whether it is a person, an illness or a problem that reoccurs you have not taken the time to ask what it represents.

Some things are simple to understand. A heart problem can be that you’ve cut yourself off from love because you feel you don’t deserve it. You may never be content at your job because you are not fulfilling your desires to be creative, because you believe that you have to work “hard” to make money. Look at your life closely from a place of love, with a desire to heal and see what doesn’t feel “right”. That’s where you must start the change.

The counter question to the above questions is:

If whatever reoccurring things in your life were a metaphor for something, what would it mean to you?

Be very honest with yourself. It’s only with honestly that you can heal. By understanding the symbolic language of what is manifesting in your life you can find the truth that you have internalized and change it, so that you may manifest the life you want.

Affirm daily, “I am empowered by my personal truths. I am the master of my reality. I consciously create the life that I want with love and gratitude.”

I dream of “I Ching” and a Bat blessing


The past week has been filled with so many mysterious signs and synchronicities. I believe the change in seasons is beginning to clear away the old and cluttered energies storied in my auric field and also the “super” Full Moon recently opened up my third eye. I love the feeling of being in the zone. I have not only been extra connected intuitively, but I’ve also had a burst of creativity.

Since I have been on vacation resting and spending time being creative, it only makes sense that I would feel more opened. The universe has really been speaking to me because I feel like I am in the process of making changes. I underwent a type of rebirth last week, mentally, physically and spiritually letting go of the old and worn out. I was finally able to let go of the Winter and all the slow, dull and stuffy energies connected with it.

My first dramatic sign came in the form of a dream the other night. In the dream I was in this room filled with the softest creamy rose colored light, in an almost mediative state. I hazily remember sitting cross legged watching a board or piece of paper or some neutral surface.

As I watched I noticed that a strange symbol was forming. One line at a time it began to take shape, until finally there were three distinct lines one stacked on the other to form a square. Then instantly it was gone and another began to form, again one line after another. Three distinct black lines stacked up, but this time the bottom line had a break in the middle of it. It too disappeared and I woke up.

Confused as to what I just saw, I quickly opened my journal (which is always by the bedside) and drew out the symbols. Next to each one I wrote a question mark. These symbols meant nothing to me, yet I felt very drawn to them. Still very tired I went back to sleep.When I woke I pulled open the journal and stared at the two symbols trying to understand them and then I remembered a woman I once met who read the I Ching or Book of Change.

I immediatly googled “I Ching” to see the symbols and possibly find their meanings. I wasn’t sure what I would find or if the symbols I dreamt about were even I Ching. To my surprise the very first I Ching symbol, Symbol #1 looked exactly like the first I dreamt of. Three distinct black lines one stacked on the other in the form of a square.

This symbols is named Chi’en “Force” or “Creativity”. This symbol represents the creative potential of the universe being at your  finger tips. It belongs to people who walk the worlds between Heaven and Water. Basically it it is a sign of someone who taps  into the creative spirit of the Universe through intuition, prayer, mediation and other spiritual means.

I was filled with awe at what I found. The first symbol Chi’en was totally in synch with what I had been experiencing. How powerful to dream of this symbol without ever seeing it before. So then I looked up the next symbol. Again I had chills when I found it listed. Exactly the same as in the dream.

This symbol was titled Sun or Ground. What an extremely powerful revelation. I read that the symbol represents the maturity of seeds planted. The maturation of ideas and intentions. Signifying joyous, gentle and nurturing energy that hangs over you like an atmosphere, affecting your emotions and thoughts. It can also be laying to rest the old to make room for the new.

After reading this I was not only baffled, but chilled and moved. How powerful to receive such insight. For me to be experiencing such a turbulent time and to feel as if I was transforming on so many levels and then to receive this was totally comforting, not to mention healing.

As if this weren’t already enough for me, I recieved another message. It came to me last night. After being out all day giving things away to the thrift store (boxes and boxes of old clohtes, etc) I came home to do laundry. I load up my basket and headed to the basment of the building I live in. It was late and I knew that I was the last person to enter the building so I was trying to be quiet.

I loaded the washer and head upstairs. As I crept up the steps to my floor I noticed the shadow of a bird on the ground. I assumed it came from the window looking out into the bamboo, but then I looked up and to my surprise their was a bat flying frantic in circles around and around. Startled I ducked down and made my way into my apartment. I peeped out again to make sure it was real.

I was very confused because their wasn’t a window opened or a door and I know that I  was the last person to come in. I had went down the steps not even 5 minuts before and  their was no bat in sight. I called my neighbor and asked her to call the landlord. They  told us to open the door and window so it would eventually fly out.

my neighnor opened the window and door and then came over to tell me. Her and I  chatted for probably a minute before we went out into the hall to see how our batty visitor  was and it had disappeared. In only a few minutes it had found its way out. Gone as fast  as it came.

Instantly I felt the medicine of the bat settle into my soul. I knew that he  had mysteriously appeared to give me a sign. Part of me felt like his message was that of  transformation and learning to live by the night, learning to live by my instinctual side. And again learning to allow myself to be free.

I looked up the symbolism of a bat flying into a house… and found that it is a sign of rebirth, transformation and a sign of good luck and blessing on new ventures or possible moves. Again, spot on. I had to send a mental “thank you” to this brave creature who found a way to deliver this much needed message.

I have been feeling the need for a little clarity on my path lately and to have all of these wonderful wisdoms come to me from the Universe really eased my mind about any possible changes that may come. It also reminded me how powerful our Guides and Angels can be when we invite their insight into our lives.

Do you have any similar stories to share? Did anything enlightening happen to youduring the “super” full moon?

All the best,

Shaheen

Understanding Spirit Guides

Art by psychic artist Sharon Bosmoore http://www.findspiritpath.com


The topic of spirit guides comes up all the time in readings and emails. People always want to known whom their spirit guides are, how they can communicate with them and what they do exactly.

I’ve been contemplating doing a post about this for some time and recently I had a conversation with someone about the subject. So I decided I would give you some basic information about spirit guides. This is enough to get you started!

What are Spirit Guides?

  • A spirit guides is a discarnate entity that’s sole purpose is to aide you on your life path.  You and your guide made a soul level contract before incarnation that they would watch over, guide and protect you, as well as disperse spiritual insights and synchronicities into your life.
  • Your spirit guide has a unique understanding of you and the path that you have laid out for yourself. Often they work with you when you create your spiritual map. They have a vantage point from which they guide you because they are able to see your map clearly and they can view the “bigger” picture of our journey.
  • Your spirit guide is your souls assistant working behind the scenes. Whether you are aware of them, they constantly watch over, protect and guide you.

Does everyone have a spirit guide?

  • Absolutely everyone has a spirit guide. Some may argue that there are people who do not have guides, but as far as I have seen we all do. No matter what your religious background or beliefs are, even if you do not believe in God, you still have a guide.
  • We have a primary guide, who has incarnated at least once. The reason being is so that they have empathy about our journey here on earth. Now if you do not believe in incarnation or that whole philosophy it doesn’t negate the idea of a spirit guide. We also have a secondary guide or guides that can walk into your lives at key points bringing us more specialized guidance. For example: If you are beginning to explore a new career path and you are very passionate about it, but not very confidant you may have a secondary guide who steps in and helps you in this area. They are specialty guides.

How can I recognize the presence of my spirit guide?

  • Any time you are stressed or undergoing extreme changes in your life a spirit guide will be more dominant in your life. Their purpose is to help you with the difficult areas of your journey, so when times are tough remember that they are there.
  • It is common for people to hear their name being called, when no one is around. Usually your guides are trying to get your attention.
  • You may see flashing lights, often blue or white. Maybe even shadows or silhouettes out of the corner of your eye.
  • Reoccurring dreams, especially of a stranger whom you feel comfortable with.
  • A unique fascination with a name or geographical place, which is often connected to the name or ethnicity of your guide.
  • Some sort of reoccurring symbol. Such as numbers, letters, motifs, etc.
  • Physical sensations. Often the feeling of being touched on a shoulder or hand or someone standing near you to one side or the other.

How can I know my guides name and what they look like?

  • Most people like to know the name of their guide first. There are many ways to get the name of your guide. Basically you can ask, “What is your name?” and then wait to see which name pops into your head first, or which names stands out to you (the next person you meet, a billboard, song on the radio or it may be written on a piece of paper). You can also use a baby name book and open a page at random and select a name by pointing with your eyes closed. Or the other way is to use a name that you feel drawn to.
  • People often want to know how their guides look or what their sex is before they connect with them. My answer to this is 1) they may appear in whatever form they wish. As an animal, ball of light or a physical person. Your primary guide will typically take the form of a human. Meditation is key in finding out what they look like or you may have a dream or vision or you could ask a reader. 2) You can ask them to appear in a certain form because your guide will do whatever it takes to work with you in your comfort zone.

How can I easily speak to my guide?

  • The simplest way to speak with your guide is by talking out loud to them. Your guide will find some way to communicate back with you. This could be through symbols, visions, dreams, songs, verbal communication, feelings, television programs or other people. They will find the best way to communicate with you if you just trust.
  • Using an oracle deck is an easy and powerful way to communicate with them.
  • Write letters to them or leave little messages posted around your home or office.
  • Mediate. You can do this through a guided meditation or by simply being still for a few minutes a day.
  • Creativity and art. They are drawn to creativity and they love to inspire us. Inspiration comes from the word spirit!

A few more things

  • Angels and spirit guides are not the same. Typically your spirit guide is not a loved one who passed. These are three different types of entities.
  • Your guides have far more ability to help you when you ASK for them to help!
  • Spirit guides do not control any aspect of your life; they only offer you help and guidance. You have free will at all times. You may even ask for certain aspects of your life to be inaccessible to your guides if you like.
  • They are not all knowing. They have more insight into our life because they are watching outside of it and they can connect with our subconscious mind which is far wiser and our map.
  • Guides are never negative, harmful, pushy, controlling or frightening.
  • They know when to turn their heads if you know what I mean, but they are never truly absent.
  • They truly are your bestfriends. When you begin to connect with them, it should be more like a reunion, rather than a first encounter.

Artist Unknown (If you know who’s work this is please let me know so I can properly cite it).

This information is only a small portion of what can be written about the subject. I’ve only pulled out the basics to get you started so that you can begin working with and calling on your guides.  Once you’ve read this you can begin enriching your life by consciously connecting with them.

Please do not hesitate to ask me any questions that you may have about this subject. If there is anything that I can elaborate on or any confusion I may clear up, I would be more than happy to.  And I would love to hear any stories you may have about working with your guides. What was your first encounter like? Do you remember the first time you consciously worked with your guide?

Best wishes,
Shaheen

Monthly Tarot Card: Death March 19, 2011

Death is the traditionally the 13th card in the Major Arcana of the Tarot deck. This is one of the most feared and misunderstood cards of the deck and I often hear people say, “God I hope I don’t get the death card!” because it terrifies them. I am here to tell you that the Death card is one of the most magical, brilliant and truly spiritual cards of the Tarot.

First let me say that this card would be more appropriately titled “Transformation”. If this card is pulled it is more likely speaking of a metamorphosis, rather than a physical death. Many people fear the idea of death because they fear loss, but death is actually a strangely intimate and wise creature. Death allows us to be reborn and renewed.

Whenever I think of this card, I instantly think of the metamorphosis of a butterfly. How it changes from a less than beautiful caterpillar to something gorgeous and ephemeral. Think of yourself in this same way. It’s much easier to ride the waves of change than to fight them, and in the end there is always a treasure to be cherished.

With the card of death always comes a lesson. You have completed one phase of learning and you are now entering another. I feel that if the death card comes up you have triumphed over something difficult and it’s now time to rejoice. But death may also council you to befriend your fears before they get the better of you.

To understand this card you must take to heart the simple truths of death itself. Death has no bias, it has no favorites; death is simply a law that energy must abide by. The truth is nothing can ever be destroyed, so you have to think of death as a gatekeeper of sorts or the doorway itself.

If you get this card then you are in an extremely powerful place of change, where energies are being shifted and transmuted. This card may herald new beginnings in your life physically, mentally or spiritually. Be ready for these shifts and embrace them.

There is nothing frightening about death; from it stems a new phase of consciousness. Be open to transformation. As you transform the old, worn-out and tired parts of you are reborn into something new.

Affirmation: “I move with the cycles of divine transformation. Each change leaves me reborn; radiant and empowered.”


Reflections: What part of your life is in need of change? What parts of yourself would you like to transform?

Spiritual Message:

Fear can be one of the most crippling emotions you can experience. We constantly allow our fears to get in the way of our most precious dreams and manifestations. Spirit wants you to know that you are safe now. Repeat to yourself, “I am safe. I am free. I can pursue my dreams.”

Fear can be your friend at times, but once it has run its course you have to let it go. Timing has been off the past few weeks maybe even the past few months. You may have felt apprehensive about making decisions, but you are coming out of that now. Be honest with yourself about what you want.

A beautiful white knight is about to ride into your life, bring with him a gift. Now is the time for goals to be realized, timing is spot on and you will be called on to receive the treasure you have so anxiously been awaiting. With honor and gratitude take this gift and allow yourself to be powerful and to feel safe and secure in your power.

Best Wishes,

Shaheen
