12/3/2019 foresight, and updates!
Divine love and greetings… welcome back￼. We have had some pretty heavy readings so far. But why wouldn’t they be heavy? What is this entertainment or something? Not hardly… well, maybe for some.
For those of you who are serious like me, this weeks reading proposes a very different energy. And thank goodness! We have had some heavy stuff coming up. A lot of it reflected what most people were feeling deep down inside. There were a lot of people who reached out after the last post. And I was glad of it. I know who is struggling still, even if they don’t reach out in order to hide it. Let’s take a look at what comes up for everyone this week.￼￼
The Prince and the Pauper
As a Master and Oracle, it is not uncommon for me to use parables or riddles in my work. Sometimes it’s better to have a person figure things through on their own as they do some thinking. Realizations can really help a persons spiritual growth. Then, there are others who don’t want to play little games and just want the answers upfront and center. For those of you who don’t like the riddles, I am sorry. This week actually really requires one.￼
Once upon a time, in the dark ages of medieval history and legends, there was a young boy who wanted to grow up to be something. He had a lot of dreams and didn’t know which dream to pursue first. All that he knew was, was that he wanted to do one of them. Some of those dreams had been inspired by a few friends that he had. One of his friends wanted to be a blacksmith like his father. The second friend of his, wanted to grow up a merchant like his own father was. The third, wanted to help build homes as he had some pretty awesome ideas in how he could insulate the houses as a villager so that they could be warmer. His father had been responsible for helping the building projects of villages in the surrounding area. It was not uncommon for young men to want to grow up to be like their fathers in those days. In fact, it was tradition for the son to take over the fathers work to keep the family tree going. Last names were often developed because of a persons family trade were the geographical location that they lived in. For example, my great grandmother’s last name was Broadwater. This was an extension of the name rivers that had been a new last name adopted by the Queen Elizabeth Woodville. The reason why they took the name rivers or Broadwater, was because they live very close by two bodies of water and which legends had been spawned in their families.￼￼￼￼ Another example is, that her husband had last name Vickers. This last name had been given to them because they had all been in the family line of work regarding ministry. The vicar was another name for a minister sort of. As you can see, names were definitely developed based on location or trade. That’s how important trade was to the family.￼
However, the boys own father did not have much of a trade. He was a farmer and worked laborious hours out in the fields. So, he had developed an interest in the hopes of the other young men that he had befriended. As he got older he had gone to each friend asking if he could work with them and their fathers for a day. But no matter which trade he tried, he was unhappy with all of them. He couldn’t figure out who he wanted to be. Eventually, he decided that he would never find himself in looking at what others had been doing, but instead go out there and see if there were any other options that appealed to he himself through life experience. He was the poorest of all in his village. In fact, the king used to take a majority of his fathers crops, leaving most of his family with nothing. He did not want to end up like his poor father. He didn’t really know how we wanted to end up. Eventually he went on his way. He traveled far and wide throughout the land. Without any way to survive, he begged in In the streets for food. Afterall, without a trade he couldn’t work for his supper. He felt as if he had made a huge mistake. Yet, when he looked back on how his father had grown poor and struggled in his labor and toil throughout the summer months only to have everything snatched away in the autumn harvest all of his life, he thought to himself that maybe perhaps being a beggar was better after all.
Cruel winter months came. Out in the cold he shivered. It was then that a man came traveling along the roadside and saw him. He had been a craftsman, responsible for making wheels and all kinds of weaponry. He asked the young boy if he wanted to come with him, as he had seen that he was cold. Going with the man, the boy had learned how to make weapons, chariots and wheels. He worked for him as an assistant in exchange for food. But he could not remain with him forever. Later on, as he traveled further towards the boundaries of the land, he found a knight that had abandoned his calling. ￼ The boy, tired from his travels… say down beside him as the knight warmed himself by a tiny fire. Suddenly they just began talking, and the knight had told the young boy of how awful war was, especially when the king had sent people out to fight against innocent people to just snatch lands away for his own wealth and power. The boy had heard all types of stories of war and the meaningless reasons behind them. He decided to travel with the knight and once in a while, they would stop to rest. During their rest stop, they would mock fight, as the knight had been teaching the boy some very strategic moves that he himself had used when in battle￼￼￼. But that situation could not last forever either. Eventually the knight wanted to return back to his family when he knew it would be safe and the king would not be seeking for him anymore. The penalty for abandoning the king’s army was death, not a fate that the knight wanted for himself.￼ They parted ways.
Traveling alone, he thought to find himself a warmer place to live. He was tired of being out in the winter cold. And he had traveled far and wide to reach the new land that he had come to. ￼When getting to that warmer location, the land was in chaos, and at war within itself.￼ Still, somehow he had gotten caught up in the battle and had to fight for his own life. He had used some of the strategic movements that the warrior had taught him sometime ago. It seemed that he was natural at fighting. He had even helped a group of people to learn some of the battle movements and had helped them to remain safe￼￼. Still, it didn’t seem like the war was going to end soon in that land.￼ He had to be on his way. In the remote location in which everyone had been hiding with him, he said goodbye to the group that he had been leading. Just 19 years old, he was already tired with life. He could travel no more. He had left home at the age of 15, and by that time… was a boy no longer.￼
Now a young man, he pondered why it was so hard for him to find his destiny. Nothing that he had done so far had gotten him anywhere. In fact, battle, making weapons, teaching others to fight, gallivanting with a knight, and traveling about an on an empty stomach most of the time, seemed to be much worse than the poor and laborious life that is father lived after all. He returned home to question his father about why he had chosen to stay in the same position in life. He wanted to ask his father why he had not strived for something better?￼ Traveling a long time, over a huge distance… he finally arrived back to his homeland. Slowly, he made his way to his village with his head hung low. He couldn’t look up at the village before him, because he had known that all of his travels had been absolutely for nothing, leading him back to the same fate that he had tried to escape from. When he finally reached his father, his father in braced him. He was happy to see his son, who was now a young man himself. The young man told his father of all of his adventures and then asked him The question that he had waited so long to ask him. He looked up at his father and questioned him as to why he had not tried to seek a better position in life? Why did he settle for less? His father older and wiser, told his son that; “Sometimes people are given a lot in life. Some are born into their destiny, while others have to go out and pursue it. But then there are others who have￼￼ destiny fall out of nowhere at their fate”. The father told his son that no matter which, a man must except his ultimate fate. Working with his father for a few years, suddenly word had spread throughout the land that the king had sent soldiers out into many of the villages to burn them down and take the land away from the villagers. The soldiers were to plunder all of the goods from the farmlands, then torch all the homes and farms themselves afterwards. The king had already taken many homes away from many of the people in the land through different villages. The villagers from those locations were either taken to the dungeon, forced to become soldiers, sold as slaves to nearby neighboring lands, or forced to work in the palace as servants.￼￼￼Soon the kings men would be heading towards the young men’s village. In hearing this news, everyone became frantic. They didn’t know what to do. They didn’t want to lose their homes or end up with any one of those outcomes in their lives. The boy, remembering what he had learned in making weapons, got all of the villagers from his village and a few neighboring ones…together. He taught them how to make weapons to fight against the king’s men. Then, what he had learned from the knight, he had taught the people. The same maneuvers that he had taught the people in the warring foreign land, he taught to his own people as well￼￼. Finally they were all prepared. All three villages been together under his leader ship and waited for the kings men to approach. And so they did.
The soldiers came raging towards the village with great aggression. With them, they still had cart loads of some of the villagers that they had captured from other villages but they had just annihilated. The young man and the people fought with great bravery. Winning against the kings men, they released the villagers that were imprisoned in the barred carts.￼￼ this doubled the amount of people that the young man had in numbers. Everyone was fed up and didn’t want to succumb to the rulership of a king who could kill his own people. So the young man trained the freed villagers as well.￼ all of them together marched across the land to find other villages that had not yet been plundered or burned down. They gathered together the other villagers from those locations and all of them together in a great multitude, made their way towards the Kings Castle. A great war broke out around the castle that day. The king had no choice but to come out and fight his own battle. Finally, faced with the young man himself, the King fought for his life against him. But he lost.￼ The young man and the villagers had one against the tyrant king.
Since the young man had helped everyone to make weapons, training the villagers, freed the prisoners, brought everyone together as an army, and slayed the king too, The young man was crowned as king himself￼￼. For all of the things that he had learned in his journey in life experience, he had used for a greater purpose. His father had been right. Some were born into their destiny. Other people, had to go looking for it. Then there were some weird destiny chose them just like the young man here. Once a pauper, he was now a prince of princes. He ruled the land with great benevolence and was favored by all of the people in the land for all of the days that he reigned. ￼ looking back on his life he knew that what was meant for others may not have been meant for him. Sure he could have ended up with a worse fate than anyone of those three friends. Where he could end up with something even better, as he did. Once poorest, once the last, he became the first and the greatest.￼
The reading this week has a very deep symbolic meaning. Obviously, it is about destiny. The prince of the cups appears trying to tell everybody that while there may have been many who were feeling down and out, there is still a great dream with in each of us that we still need to pursue. For others who feel like they are not getting anywhere, maybe they need to except that all of the elements will just come together perfectly when they are meant to, like our young man in the story. And seeking his feet he had learned many things through his life experience that had come together for his life purpose. Anything else that he tried didn’t work because it wasn’t a part of his purpose. Perhaps discovering what your life purpose is and taking from your life experience to create the rest of it, can help you to start manifesting your destiny. If you’ve tried that too and it still isn’t working, and perhaps it is not divine timing. Just like the young man, maybe there are events that need to take place in your life before the bigger picture can come together.
Additionally there are a few lessons here. There is a lesson in being humble. In his confusion the young man didn’t know what he wanted to do, he just didn’t want to be poor like his own father. But later on he excepted that maybe that was what was meant for him after all. He could’ve kept traveling, seeking bigger better things, he could’ve kept fighting the forces against it. But instead, he just accepted his destiny, what he thought was his final destination, and humbly went home.￼￼￼
There are also lessons in bravery and awareness as well. It is true that even through many experiences in life, during trials and tribulations, a person still will not gather their life experience together, to bravely create a better outcome. Instead, many succumb to the tragic hardships.￼For the young man to have to fight with the villagers against a powerful king and a huge army was definitely a tragic hardship if you ask me. But, he faced it bravely with courage.￼ additionally, he only knew what to do because he used awareness of his life experiences together together the wisdom that he needed in order to come up with a solution that works not just for himself but for everybody. That plays into yet another lesson involving being selfless
It is true that our story has much wisdom and many lessons littered throughout it. But the main idea is that you discover what you’re meant to do, and do your best with it. Don’t give up if things don’t go your own way. Be brave and look for opportunities to use your life experience in that could be a part of your greater purpose somehow someway. It is true that those that come last I’m a come first later. Just like the end of our story had said, those who are the least, become the greatest. That is because people who are trying to force their fate, are doing so only for their own ends and means. They aren’t thinking about how they can help other people. As a result, selfishness, pride, and vainglory which is what that is,￼will lead a person who is selfish and prideful to do any￼￼￼ to get where they want to go. Those people are just like the king. They want what they want, and they’ll do anything to get it. Even if it means trampling upon other people. And just like the story, people like that… they don’t make it in the end.￼ Just like the kings stealing home and land from the villagers, people will even go as far as to try to steal another person is destiny two. I see it happening more and more every day. Nevertheless, the moral of the story and the reading both are that you need to live according to what your life purpose and destiny holds for you. Sometimes it’s not something that can be rushed. Be humble, breve and aware. It will come when it is time.
But if you are somebody that does not know your life purpose,￼ Bear in mind that you may not have some elaborate life purpose to accomplish after all. Just like the young man’s father had been destined to remain a poor farmer in order to grow food for all of the villagers to survive one which was a lowly but no bowl purpose, your purpose maybe something small just the same. Regardless, your purpose is your purpose and it is magnificent no matter how big or little, no matter how grandiose or not. When you live on the path according to your life purpose, everything falls into place and you can be content no matter what that destiny is. And that is because the heavens, life experience, what your higher self knows to be righteous and what you will eventually become passionate about in the long run (even of small value), will be the path that makes you the happiest.￼ Overall, everybody can go from a pauper to a prince it just requires knowing what your purpose is and knowing how to exercise the virtues in pursuing it or patiently waiting for it to come time for it to manifest on your path.￼
Additionally, this reading Signifies that everybody has sense of renewed spiritual vigor. Where is everyone had been feeling pretty low last few weeks, this week is starting to perk everyone back up and motivate them to inspiration. However, there may be some underlying emotions that you need to take care of. When people don’t have much of anything to hang onto, they tend to take the one thing that they do have, and hang onto it way too much in over access. Is there something in your life that you’re hanging onto too much? To much of something may not be such a good thing after all.
This week you will be feeling emotional, passionate, insensitive in a positive way. You will return back to the imaginative world of your inner self which will bring a great creative side out in the open from within your mind and even from your personality. Use this for all that it’s worth to work on some of those creative endeavors that you have been planning. The Holidays are coming up and that is a wonderfully creative and imaginative time of year￼. No matter what you are doing, perhaps maybe decorating your spiritual altar (for the embrace your altar contest challenge with me), seeking for those perfect gifts for your loved ones, giving yourself a makeover or renewal in life, or starting a new career or relationship,￼ don’t allow a little things to get in the way. Only you decide how much power negativity has over your life.￼
And don’t forget, if you don’t know your purpose, come by the website and book a session with me. I can help you. I even have life coaching to help you work towards accomplishing that purpose in bringing all of the right elements together as well as your lesson spiritually. For those of you working on your purposes already, don’t be afraid to ask for help.
