Can you believe it? We are on the 12th Day of the 12 Days of Yule! What an interesting and amazing journey it has been. I first want to thank all of the people that participated, and I hope that this has been a rather insightful experience for you. Understanding the workings of our unconscious is the first step to making lasting change in our lives. Doing these simple exercises of self-reflection will get you started on a powerful New Year that you can manage in a more effective and productive way.
Today, we focus on letting go of the past. What past? Your past! As 2010 draws to a close it is time for us to dump our attachments to the particular experiences of the year that have left us stuck, frustrated, and out of sorts. I know, easier said than done! However, perfection is not necessary – only the willingness to let things go. Whether your issues were financial, career, or relationship oriented now is the time to let go of the past and prepare for the new.
Write down the issues that you wish to let go of from the past on your Yule page.
Get out your decks. Shuffle the cards thoroughly and ask the following question, “How can I best let go of circumstances that I may have attachments to from the past?” Fan out your cards in front of you, and select one card from the deck.
The card that I drew from the Legacy of the Divine Tarot is Faith.
First, I found it interesting that both of the cards from our last Beyond Tarot intensive on Beyond Worlds appeared in my spread. The Faith card in most Tarot decks is called “The Hierophant” – it is also one of the most difficult cards because of its pseudo religious connotation. For many it brings issues surrounding religious dogma and the abuses of religious authority. Thankfully, I have always seen this card as a need to study or become educated about the mysteries of life and the laws that govern the physical universe.
Personally, one of the ways for me to let go of the past is for me to concentrate on my faith and my spiritual work. I made a decision several weeks ago that I want to focus more on the connection between Tarot and Kabbalah in 2011, and my pulling this card was the universe giving its blessing.
