Thank you for requesting a Life Reading. It looks like you’ve been taking actions to move your life in a more positive direction. This reading will help you focus those actions so that you can more readily accomplish your goals and be on track for the next set of spiritual lessons that you are ready for.
A racer tilted forward on the saddle of a racehorse on the racetrack This indicates the idea of forward action but not actual forward action. So there are ideas forming in your mind of how you can progress in your life and do what you need to do, but right now they’re really just ideas. The symbol is indicating that you are going to need to pick something and “make it real”. The action that you have to take is like going from a photograph of a horse jockey to being on an actual racehorse in a race. You have the concept. You have some right ideas that will work for you. Now you need to go and do them.
Sled dogs pulling a sled Sled dogs are a symbol of working together as a team. Also, secondarily, “over a long haul”. This symbol addresses all three of your questions. You are going to need to discover how to work as part of a team that actually works together, sometimes very closely, to get things done.
A downhill skier racing down a steep slope This symbol is about being focused and deliberate in what you do. A downhill skier in motion is focused and deliberate and completely in the action. It’s not conceptual; it’s the natural result of being in step with your intentions and the results that come from alignment with your intentions and your actions.
A fully blossomed lily A lily derives its nutrients from muddy standing water. The lily is a symbol of taking your inner spiritual work and transforming it into a full, beauteous, unique expression of your gifts. This symbol indicates that the struggles that you have been going through and are going through now are raw materials for a full expression of your true gifts to come. The way to look at your struggles is that they are nourishing you deep down, that you may grow and form the fullest expression of your unique gifts, so that your unique gifts are “in full flower”.
“Invest in a new camera with better resolution.” This can be taken both as a specific instruction (find and buy a new camera) and as a symbolic message. In order to be the kind of team player that you are being called on in order to realize your ambitions, you are going to need to invest energy and awareness in becoming more sensitive to the emotional nuances in the environments in which you live and work. The way to do this right now is to “Listen when people talk to you. Really think about what they’ve said before you respond.” You’ve been attempting to fill all the spaces, and it doesn’t work. This is reflected in the clutter in your house and the seeming difficulty in being where you want to be as far as relationships go.
A dragonfly The symbol indicates that you are being gently summoned to become more aware of your spirituality. “Create cleanliness and organization in your home, especially your bedroom.” View cleaning clutter as a spiritual exercise – an exercise in discovering what is truly important to you. If you can, enlist the help of someone else to help you follow through with this. For example, you might tell a friend that you have set a stretch goal for yourself to clean and organize your bedroom by this day next week. Pick a date by which you can do it, then have your friend follow up with you on that day to make sure that you’re doing it and hold you accountable if you don’t follow through.
“Put plants in your house.” Plants are protectors. Not only can they help clean your environment in your home, but they will also absorb some of the impact from unhelpful energies that may be directed toward you. Plants will brighten up your house, help you feel more in connection with nature, and will ground you in a regular “devotional practice” of watering and caring for your plants.
“Surround yourself with nature.” In addition to bringing live plants into your home, make it a point to go out and be in natural places that you enjoy.
A wagon with a hitch not hitched to anything. “Find something to hitch your wagon to.” You seem to have good ideas and the ability to follow through with them, but you lack direction. Your guides are happy that you are embracing the spiritual path more in your life. One of the things that your spiritual awakening can help you realize is a good and fulfilling focus for your life.
A quill pen resting in an ink well “Write your partner a letter in your own handwriting.” You know whom this is meant for. Write from the heart rather than attempting to promote yourself. Share with your partner what you would really like. Don’t seek anything specific from your partner in this letter. Just say what you would like to have in your life. The more straightforward and personal, the better. This is not the place for romantic sonnets or entreaties for love. Keep it real and honest.
“Listen when people talk to you. Really think about what they’ve said before you respond.” You will get better at this with practice. Try it out the next time you are at a social gathering. When you go to a gathering to practice this, make it a point to remain silent longer than you normally would and let the other person talk more. Let them keep going. Don’t jump in and say anything. Watch what happens.
The opening scene (when the curtains part for first time) of a live theater performance in a spacious theater with red velvet curtains “Take your partner to a live theater performance in a fancy theater.” “Adopt a puppy and learn to train it. This will be an important lesson in waiting to get your partner pregnant until you’re ready.” Perhaps you’ve been thinking that somehow having a child with your partner will “cement” things. It is an awesome responsibility to bring new life onto the planet. The culture you find yourself in pays little respect to the importance of parenting a child with the intention to support and raise that child to maturity. These shared cultural values are not working out so well for anyone, even the parents who seem to “get off scot free.” If you are truly interested in having a child, take the initial step of bringing a puppy into your life. Get a young pup that has just finished weaning and needs to be trained in everything, including being housebroken, what to chew on and what not to chew on, not to bite people, how to walk on a leash, responding to commands and hand signals, etc. If after five or six months of training and caring for your puppy, you still have the desire to have a child, you will do so having some small indication of the level of commitment it will take to bring another human being into this world with strength and with love.
“We are very pleased that you are on the path. Remember there is always higher to go, higher to look. Don’t settle for what is comfortable.” Once you have mastered the set of lessons before you, the next set of lessons will appear. There is never an “end” to the spiritual path. Whenever you feel as though you have mastered the present set of teachings and life seems to be going well, know that a new set of teachings will soon appear and that what you found comfortable will now become the starting point for a new threshold of spiritual realization for you.
