Below are 5 cards from one of Doreen Virtue’s Oracle Deck. The backs are all the same, but by using your intuition, choose one of the cards that calls most to you. Take a deep breathe in and out. Don’t second guess yourself – just choose.
We all have intuition. Every single one of us. Intuition comes from within us, around us and from past experiences. It is supposed to teach us what to do and where to go and who to trust even if you don’t have the complete road map in front of you. It is that turn-by-turn direction that we all have, but we doubt and create false scenarios in our head, especially if there is a lot of grey around us. It makes it easier to point fingers at others than to own the burden of responsibility. And yet when we get burned, we punish ourselves because we knew. When a knowing can’t be explained, we instead attempt to rationalize it.
And so people go to see mediums, psychics and life coaches to validate the knowing. Most all of the time my clients don’t need me. Yes, I said it. They don’t. They merely need to trust that their inner GPS is synced and giving them correct directions, yet hearing it from another source helps to inspire and (as I mentioned above) lessons some of the responsibility through the decisions. I become the scapegoat. And it’s okay because I don’t own that anymore. I used to, but I discovered that I have my own decisions to make in life. We each have free will. We each have free choice. The choice is up to you to embrace your knowing, but it is also your choice to follow through on your knowing.
It is easy to point fingers and blame others for the situation you are in. But maturity and responsibility is what helps you live a fulfilled life. You give up your own power pointing fingers and ducking responsibility. We’ve all gone through tough times and tough people. And we have the ability to choose who we spend our time on, our money on and our love on. So if you want to change any affliction, look at yourself because it is that which you can change. You can reap thorns or you can reap fruit. The chose is yours.
By trusting your own intuition, taking the advice and following through on the actions – you will be amazed by your life outcome with more fulfillment in all areas. Sure, it isn’t easy, but well worth it in the end. Aren’t you worth that? Aren’t you worth starting a new month by embracing you and your knowing? Aren’t you worth starting a new year by embracing your knowing? I think you are!

Instead, follow the path of your natural desires, talents, and passions with the full intention of bringing joy to yourself and others. Your life purpose doesn’t need to be defined or pinpointed. It’s a process, not a category.

Sometimes the meanings of the cards don’t make sense immediately. Let it sit with you for a bit before discounting it.
I wish you a beautiful January!
