For a long time, I asked the usual questions in the usual way. I asked about raises and phone calls and what was going to happen next - as if my life was a story that somebody else was in charge of.
I tossed out the cards and then I tossed them again. Asking the same questions. Looking for validation. Hoping my luck would change. And missing the point of reading cards entirely!
I knew I was missing the point, of course, without really knowing just how I was missing it. I knew that fishing for answers wasn't really helping me - at least not in the way I needed to be helped. So I started journaling on my readings and as I did my readings began to change.
Over time, I noticed that I had stopped asking disempowering questions about what was going to happen to me and what other people might do and had begun to ask other more interesting questions.
Why don't I feel okay with this?
What do I need to learn?
How can I change my approach?
What is important here?
Without even trying I found myself going deeper into the reading. I began to explore it. To reflect on it. To honor it. And as I did, I began to honor myself as well.
Journaling on my readings taught me that I had the answers. It taught me that I had the power. And it taught me that the most important questions were those I asked myself.
