Tarot: 5 ~ The Hierophant

5 ~ The Hierophant (aka in Mayan Tarot: 5 ~ Jaguar Priest/Shaman) . . . . . 
~ Today may present you with opportunities to be authentic, when it is challenging to do so. It is in these moments that you have the opportunity to shift, change, grow and gain freedom.***
~ If such an opportunity does not present itself take some time today to go within and see what is ready to be released, that will help you become more authentic. So look for people in your life with whom you change who you are, to fit in. Look for a pattern of behavior that you are ready to release, remember how it feels, grab the energy of that behavior from inside of your energyfield (yes anywhere will do, go with what’s natural) pull it out and cut it off. Put your hands on your heart then forgive yourself for all the times that you’re engaged in that behavior. Then speak in a voice of power out loud to your success in doing this piece of release work.
~ Now don’t eat the whole enchilada, just one wee piece at a time. You don’t want to get anal burn after all, and trying to do too much too soon quite often has this effect. Release what you are comfortable with, change at a pace of your choosing.
*** ~ Most importantly if you do not achieve success, forgive yourself, you have taken the first step towards change. You are unhooking a pattern of behavior, this takes time and practice, which is totally normal. Honour your successes in some way that has meaning to you, and yes trying and not completely succeeding is still a win. Sometimes it is helpful to look at yourself as if you were a child learning to walk. Would you encourage this little person when they fall, or would you berate this little person? Be gentle and kind to yourself, change is bumpy.

~ Set your intent to play with this, rather than it being all serious with a pass or fail mentality.  Intuition takes practice.
~ Set your intent to hear the intuitive messages from spirit that you get today from being present with the photo above.
~ Find a quiet place to be present with the photo. (If the kids are running around the room you’re in, forget about it, find another room)
~ Breathe deeply for a few moments, focussing on your breath. This will bring you into a more balanced intuitive state. If your internal dialogue kicks up that’s okay, just notice it and let it pass on through your mind not engaging with it, and focus on your breath again.
~ Notice what attracts you about the photo. As a symbol what does this mean to you and your life walk?
~ Notice any ‘thoughts, images, colours’ that pop up not from your brain, but rather from your gut or elsewhere. (If it’s from your brain that is your ego chatting away, trying to distract you from hearing your intuition.)
~ What do those thoughts, colours, images mean as symbols or otherwise to you specifically and your life?
~ Right them down. Then you have them and can ponder on them any time you want during the day.
~ If nothing comes, do not, I repeat do not beat yourself up, this is playtime remember. Go about your day, something may pop up during the day unexpectedly. If not, no matter, there’s another photo coming tomorrow to play with.  Intuition takes practice.


WHAT IS THIS POST ABOUT – I pull a tarot card every day from the Mayan Xultun Tarot Deck by Peter Balin. Due to honouring copyright I do not post a photo of the card but instead I post a photo of something that resonates as a mirror for that card, from my perspective. It is up to you, to interpret what the photo’s message is for you each day. Play with tarot, see what your intuitive messages are.

Your interpretation and experience is your own. I can only share my personal understanding, I invite you to find your own truths and their relevance in your life. This is really important. If something resonates great, if not chuck it out. We gain nothing by ‘taking on’ others life experiences and beliefs. The juice and healing comes from within your own understanding, it is pivotal for your healing journey and manifesting what you want.
