For the next few months, I will choose a card from the African American Tarot deck as a prompt for my blog posts. Let’s see what spiritual insight I come up with!
King of Chalices + 6 of Wands
When’s the last time you were emotionally balanced? When’s the last time you were at peace? Think about it. I’ll wait. Has it been a while? You are not alone. 13% of Americans are on antidepressants. Many who are not on psychiatric meds are using a number of other means to dull symptoms. How do we stop the madness? How do we stop the inner turmoil?
Rising above emotion is the key. Many of us carry patterns in our emotional responses. We’ve been responding to the same experiences with the same thinking which leads to the same tired emotions. Some time ago I began to study my mind. I wanted to know why I felt the way I did. What I recognized almost instantly is that my negative, angry thinking would cause negative emotion. It was an Aha! moment for me. If I could avoid perpetuating negative, heavy thinking I could avoid the emotion that would inevitably follow. This my friends is emotional maturity. When a thought enters my field of consciousness I can say “No” and move on. If a thought continues to pop up I will not fight it because doing so is futile. I will just say “No” and divert my attention elsewhere. It takes practice. It takes awareness. The result of saying “No” to the same old tired thoughts/emotions is freedom. Get free.
