15/03/19 - Inspired?

Friday, 15 March 2019

Occasionally, inspiration will arrive as a fully formed idea in a single moment of absolute clarity. At other times (much more commonly, in my experience)  it starts as a quiet niggle that you may not feel ready to acknowledge. You may not even recognise it for what it is, and if you do you might not have a clue what to do with it. And so you hold it close, quietly and privately nurturing the spark in the hope that it will develop into something more 'fully formed' and 'ready' to be shared when 'the time is right'. 

Deck: Influence of the Angels Tarot by Jody Boginski Barbessi and Karen Boginski
This is all well and good, but you might find that - as time passes - you start to doubt the inspiration, or to doubt yourself. You worry that it’s STILL not the right time to share it, or that you are not the right person. Perhaps you feel unworthy, unready, or you're just too afraid. And so you continue to wait... "until".

Until you feel ready.
Until you're sure.
Until you feel you won't be judged.
Until some unknown (and uncertain) point in the distant future that may never come.

If you've been feeling the inklings of something new and exciting, this message is absolutely FOR YOU! Whatever - or whomever - it was that sparked this feeling inside you, know that the timing was divine and perfect, and that you ARE the right person to have received it. How do you know? BECAUSE you received it!

The best way to determine what to do next is to calm your mind and look within - maybe through meditation, journaling, or by seeking solitude in a more literal sense. Quietening the thoughts that would drive you crazy with self-doubt will enable you to recognise what is being awakened in you at this time, and how you should proceed.

In this deck (Influence of the Angels Tarot) The Hermit is illustrated as Remliel, the angel of awakening. He indicates that it's important for you to "see the difference between illusion and truth" and guides you in your "journey of self discovery and spiritual awareness".

This inner journey will allow you to bring your inspiration to fruition in a way that will surely help to shine light for others as well as for yourself. Don't be afraid. You already have all the wisdom and experience you need to take the next step.
