i feel so sad and tired of it all…

I wake up but never really wake up. There’s a part of me that’s decided everything’s too hard and refuses to open its eyes so I walk around half gone. I drink four cups of coffee to make up for it and then cry in the bathroom when I can’t stop shaking. There are birds in the backyard but I can’t hear them. When I say it’s cloudy, I don’t mean rain. I mean cotton in my ears and everything’s hazy. I mean I’m trying to put this darkness away but there’s nothing to put my hands on.

This is a tarot spread that was inspired by Dr. Cathy Collautt’s five steps to getting your subconscious on board. (Here’s the video where she talked to Marie Forleo about it.) This spread is designed to help you find out what’s really keeping you from reaching your goals, and how you can turn your fears into a non-issue and start manifesting your desires. 

  1. What do I want?
  2. What fear is blocking me?
  3. Why do I have this fear?
  4. What value is this fear protecting? (In other words, what is this fear trying to keep me from losing or compromising on?)
  5. How can I honor my values?
  6. How can my values guide me towards my desires?
  7. How can I manifest my desires without sacrificing my values?
  8. Who or what exemplifies my path?
  9. How can I solidify and affirm my path?

Be sure that when you use this spread, you really look into the alternative and deeper meanings of the cards that you draw. When I did my own reading, I pulled Justice as my desire. It took getting help from a friend and fellow tarot reader to understand what that actually meant for me and what I want to manifest. (Thanks, Nicole!)

I’d love to hear what you think of the spread if you use it. Feel free to send me your feedback.

I was happy but happy is an adult word. You don’t have to ask a child about happy, you see it. They are or they are not. Adults talk about being happy because largely they are not. Talking about it is the same as trying to catch the wind. Much easier to let it blow all over you.
