For today I wanted to write about a little exercise I've created: Creating your own magical wish list
Sometimes we exactly know what we want and we can wish for it. But other times our desires remain a bit foggy and cloudy. Deep down we know, we feel what we want, but it is difficult to put words to those feelings. Now isn't it handy we have a deck of 78 cards which contains numerous words which pop up immediately when even we look at such a card. Yes, tarot can be our instant wish list. Similar to my Gift boxexercise this is a free association game, which is also a fun way to get acquainted with a new deck.
So this is how is goes:You sit quietly with you deck, shuffle it thoroughly, pick a card, say : “I wish…...” and turn the card around. Then say whatever comes to mind and that will be your wish. You can repeat this as often as you want and wish and wish and wish…..
These are a few of my wishes, triggered by The Hidden Realm Tarot:
Life Renewed: I wish it was Autumn
Ten of Cups: I wish I was a more passionate cook
Feary stallion: I wish I could go horseback riding along the seashore
Nine of Swords: I wish could let go of fearful thoughts more easy
Five of Pentacles: I wish I could be more compassionate
You might want to put the most prominent and surprising wishes on you altar or a cabinet so you won’t forget what you've wished for.
When you want to take it one step further you could rephrase your wishes (passive) into affirmations (active): “I wish I was a more passionate cook” versus “I am a talented cook who enjoys to cook a tasteful dinner for her family”
I hope you will enjoy this little exercise
