We all receive many blessings in our life, and many simply go unacknowledged. I mean how many of us wake up in the morning and realize how blessed we are? Are your bills paid? Do you have good health? Do you have food and shelter? Do you have a bed to sleep in? There are so many things that we take for granted that are truly blessings in our life. Even our ability to go out and make a living is a blessing! These blessings are gifts from the universe, and we accept them without really acknowledging them in most cases.
Today, we focus on the blessings in our life. How are you blessed?
On your Yule paper write down all the ways that you are blessed in your life. This can be a simple list or it can be a list that you put much thought into. There are no rules just acknowledgement of blessings.
Now, pull out your deck. Shuffle the cards thoroughly and ask yourself the following question, “How am I blessed in my life?” Fan your cards out and draw a card out of your deck.
The card I drew from The Legacy of the Divine Tarot is The Wheel.
I must admit that I had to spend some time meditating on this card before writing about it. The divinatory meaning of the Wheel usually reflects a sudden change of fortune. Now for those that are currently going through a struggle the Wheel is a welcome relief card, but if things are currently going well in your life the Wheel can be a rather disturbing and frightening card. In essence, there is an unpredictability that is innate within this card – just as life itself is unpredictable.
So, where exactly is the blessing in this card? I think the blessing is that everything does change. Life is not stagnancy – could you imagine how utterly boring that would be? Even in our darkest moments, we are comforted in the fact that life is going to change, and that the circumstances in our life will become better. In addition, when life is going very well for us, we can understand the blessings that change ultimately brings to move us to the next level.
