TueFeb12CardToday I decided to pick a card from the Psychic Tarot deck and the card I picked is Spiritual Strength.  The message for someone reading this is…..you may have a lot on your mind right now….many commitments and many responsibilities.  You do not have to worry about the walls caving in on you or that anything will slip through the cracks.  But just to be safe….remember to keep yourself centered and grounded through mediation and quiet time by yourself.

You don’t have to go away on a retreat to center yourself (though that could be nice)…..but you should get into a daily practice of meditating.  Whenever you can fit it into your day for at least 20 minutes….twice a day would be great but try starting with once a day.  Even if its just for five minutes of quiet time in silence its better than nothing.  You could start with a short amount of time and work up to 20 or so minutes.  As long as you find the time to do it….you will be do a great service for yourself.

A good way to focus your mind is to count to 4 as you inhale….hold your breath for 2 seconds….then count to 4 as you exhale.  Focus on your breath and the counting and it will keep your mind from wandering.  If you have a mantra you can repeat in your head in silence that would work well too…..focusing your mind on one thing will keep you from getting distracted and you will go deeper into a relaxed state.

You must commit to a daily practice of meditation and not for the short term…..don’t give up on it if you feel its not working for you.  The effects are cumulative and you may not see its positive effects on you in the short term.  What you will gain though is great spiritual strength to handle anything that comes your way.  No matter how crazy things get in your life…..a daily practice of meditation will keep you calm, cool, collected, and grounded….nothing will shake you!

I will be back tomorrow with another card of the day……enjoy your Tuesday!!!
