I feel so empty
I haven't been on this forum in such a long time but I'm coming here because I feel like my emptiness is much greater than an issue I can see a therapist about and I don't have the money to see the shaman I trust.
I feel empty.
Not depressed (well, sometimes depressed). Not anxious. I've been both of those things and this is different. Not positive empty like calm. Just… empty. I feel like there's no magic in my life.
On top of all of this my body has been rejecting alcohol and I've been experiencing a bit of abdominal pain. Oftentimes when I drink I feel pain only on the left side of my body. Before this turns into a social issue: no, I'm not a heavy or frequent drinker. I drink about once a month but even a glass of wine can cause these pains for me.
These are all small pieces that may be related or they may not. I don't know. But if you have any clues any direction you can point me in that would be so helpful.
Best to you.
Help Exploring my Vibrational Issues
I visited a reiki practitioner this afternoon. Overall it was an awesome experience, and she told me that she sensed tension in my throat and in the base of my spine. She sensed that there was something that needed to be said, something that I needed to stand up for myself for. Also, she also got the vibe that it would be really important to cut some cords, that I've outgrown certain people or things.
I'm searching for more specific clues to the direction I should take as I continue to heal. Do you sense anything I should know or pay particular attention to as I work to speak up more and move past some things? I've found that as I've gotten serious about rebuilding my life, almost everything is asking for my attention. Some sense of a more focused or refined direction to go in would be greatly appreciated.
RE: My first serious Tarot reading - help?
This sounds great. I'd really appreciate it if you could do a career/vocation reading for me. I am most concerned because I don't feel that anything has clicked yet. I have some natural skills and I have really passionate desires. But none of my skills seem to match up with my path emotionally. I tend to excel across more cerebral, almost cold fields; but that's not where my heart's at (literally!). Any insight on how to incorporate both sides of me, or any hint to what type of profession I'm meant for is what I'm trying to discover.
In terms of you being a nurse - you seem really helpful and genuine. I can't see you ever being unable to make your dreams come true. A great deal of empathy and integrity and responsibility comes through in your writing, all great and common traits of those in the nursing field. I feel that your desire to be a nurse with your natural affinity for helping others makes you unstoppable as you pursue your degree. Good Luck!
If you need any additional information to assist with the reading please let me know.
My first serious Tarot reading - help?
Last week I bought my first tarot deck. I'm really excited! I've been doing one card pulls to get a feel for the deck for the last few days. This afternoon I decided to do a more comprehensive reading on my career.
I've been struggling with trying to figure out how my personal history ties into my vocation. I'm a college student and I know that I need to do something that has deep emotional and spiritual meaning for my life work. I asked the divine spirit what I should focus on as I search for the profession that appeals to my personal history. The Hermit and Temperance were drawn at the same time.
It would seem that my deck was trying to tell me that I needed to do some soul searching and have patience... but it almost seemed as if the question the deck answered was not the one I asked, and that I merely drew these cards for something similar to the self position in traditional spreads.
What insight can you offer me on this matter? How should these cards be read as they pertain to career, or I would need someone else to conduct a reading that means to much to me? Perhaps I'm mis reading my cards? Or I don't want to see what they have to say...
Recurrent Nine of Pentacles
Tonight, I had a sample romantic Celtic cross done on tarot.com and the Nine of Pentacles card was drawn for the 'challenges' position. This intrigues me because I drew the same card in the same position the last time I had a romantic themed tarot reading. This was a few months ago and I had a different love interest (obviously that didn't go well.) I think it's possible that this is a karmic lesson I'm failing to learn.
Do any practitioners have further insight to share on the Nine of Pentacles tarot card as it pertains to romance? If you're interested, I drew ten of cups for the love & me position, and the seven of staves for the situation position. I'm a little confused on how these cards interact on a romantic spread as well. I appreciate your help.
Let's see the big picture.
I notice that nearly all of my requests for insight and readings come when I'm confused or in a dark place emotionally. I'm happy to say that at this point in my life, at least for the last couple of weeks I've felt very happy with where I am and where I'm going. Although the future seems bright, it is still clouded by uncertainty on my part. A lot of the developments that are expected of me career wise and romantically (for my age) haven't taken off. I was hoping that a member here could offer me insight on the big picture; although I'm happy in the now I'm certainly apprehensive about later. I also am curious on how this insight will affect me due to my disposition being quite different than when I usually ask for insight of guidance of this nature.
Thank you for your time.
