On Sunday, I pulled the three of wands.
A card of expansion and growth, I did just that by giving my creativity a room to flourish in.
Coming home from doing groceries later that day, I had an package waiting at my door — some art books I had purchased on a whim a couple of days ago. After putting away the groceries and settling the kids down for nap/quiet time, my husband and I went into the spare room (aka the LuLaRoe room) and took down the clothing racks and packed up the last of the clothing we need to send back. Room empty, I swept away the dirt and lingering energy. Then we set to work moving my office and art studio into the room. And though I think it needs a few finishing touches like an area rug and a bigger bookshelf, I have an area to create that is mine away from the chaos of the rest of the house. Bonus, I have a lot more wall space to fill — so I definitely need to do some painting in the coming weeks.
Monday morning, I woke up and sat my desk and spent a few minutes just marveling in the fact that I had a space to call my own. My husband, too, has his small corner of this room — enough space for his computer and few other odds and ends. So essentially, this room feels “adult” — it is a place for us to come into to relax and work.
After reveling in the peace, I pulled out my cards and shuffled. Monday’s card was the two of wands — a card of independence and new ventures.
Even my dreams are full of symbols — my subconscious encouraging me to find my voice and let my creativity have free reign.
Another thing I’m doing to help find my voice? Deep soul writing.
One of the books I have currently been reading is entitled “Writing Down Your Soul” — it is about doing deep, soul-searching writing daily and learning to listen to the Voice, a higher power or your deep subconscious (whichever falls inline with your beliefs). The author, Janet Connor, writes that it takes 30 days of writing every day to create this into habit and to begin rewiring the neural pathways of the brain. As today is the 1st of August, today I begin my deep soul writing.
So here I am. Ready to write down my soul and find my voice.
This is an abridged version of a longer post that includes more information on the tarot cards as well as some thoughts on how leaving LuLaRoe was only the beginning of my finding my voice. To read the complete post, please head over to my Patreon page.
