4 OF CUPS OVERVIEW
‘Ack. This meditation thing just isn’t working. Breathe in. Boredom. A million and one facking thoughts.’ She sits, fidgeting. Restless and insecure. She wants it and she wants it now. Privileged in every single way, she’s ready to give up because clearly she’s not made for this. ‘Why does everyone else seem to be able to do it? And, why on earth do they like it?’ Some days she’s angry with the world because it’s never lived up to the expectations she had. ‘Lightworkers and seeing rainbows of energy, my ass.’ Some days she’s just angry with herself for not being able to crack this energy thing that people keep talking about. ‘Manifesting? Poppycock,’ she squirms, ‘This is not my dimension, clearly. And this stupid pillow my aunt bought me is too hard.’ And she has already wasted, like, a week thinking about all of those things she really wants to attract into her life. She’s felt the feels. And yet she’s still here, in the exact same place. ‘Meh. Whatever.’
MESSAGE FROM THE 4 OF CUPS
If you are finding yourself bored, unsatisfied or frustrated with your current situation, know that you are likely missing the vibrant landscapes that are present. They lie just beyond your peripheral vision! Often, we become so focused on our own internal perspectives that our feelings about a situation can prevent us from noticing the arrival of extraordinary opportunities and remarkable things. If you remain open to shifting (ever-so-slightly!) in order to see your situation in a fantastic new light, you will learn that the present moment is filled with the most dynamic array of colours. Put your rainbow-and-rose-colored-glasses on for a moment. Your thoughts continuously anchor you to your perception, and your perception creates your unique pattern of seeing. And the patterns you see in your life can be changed when you dedicate yourself to it, whole-heartedly. Do the work. There is magic here, exactly here, when you look for it. Instead of focusing on what you don’t have, focus on what you do – or even better – spend energy focusing your thoughts on the experiences that you will absolutely and undoubtedly create. Allow those thoughts to turn to feelings. And allow those feelings to begin to shape the pattern of your perception. Taking time to meditate and to slow your mind will show you that your life is better than it seems. Take a good honest look at your attitude. It’s up to you to shift into feelings of abundance in order to feel the fortuitous avenues available to you right now.
QUESTIONS FOR THE SEER
• Are you feeling like the grass is greener on the other side?
• How would a total pessimist see your situation? And how would a total optimist view it? And where do you sit?
• Are you rejecting sacred gifts that the Universe is offering?
