Why Am I Not In A Relationship?

You really can’t predict as to when and how and where you will meet “the one”. Sometimes, it’s as simple as meeting someone in a bookstore, at a friends place or even at work…

So, while it could be a tad difficult to predict the above you could do a quick self check to gauge whether it’s something uncontrollable in your life that’s stopping you from having that relationship or it’s simply you who’s not ready to share their lives yet…

One doesn’t have to be in a devastated state or a complete emotional mess to know this, simple things like being too engrossed in yourself and your work or lack of time to make space for others could be a factor as well. Sometimes, it could be a certainty that you just can’t be happy till you are not in a relationship.

See if you relate to the following..

You are preoccupied on finding love

If most of your conversations, thoughts, writings reflect the focus on your inability on finding love then maybe you need to pause. If your energy is focussed on the dating game and most of your interests are around planning ways you can find love than on focus on yourself, it’s time to try something different.Attract someone who is emotionally healthy and a strong sense of self worth and in order to do that your own self worth should be high. No relationship can make you feel better about yourself or less lonely or more worthy. Focus on yourself, on things that make you happy. Else, you’ll end up attracting someone who’s equally needy or insecure.

You Think You Don’t Need To Change

If you have been single for a while, chances are you have your routine in place which makes your life as uncomplicated as possible and chances also are that you really are not keen to upset your current weekend scene. If you don’t see yourself giving up your weekend routines or feel resentful about making adjustments then perhaps you aren’t quite ready to have a serious relationship. Expecting a potential partner to make all the adjustments and expecting them to fit in your current life is unfair. Maybe for a while, you should stick to your convenient routine life. Relationships require work, which can bring upon inconveniences, you need to ask yourself, how inconvenient you are willing to be in order to be in a relationship.

You’re Looking For Someone Different From Your Ex

While on the surface it’s a good thing. Hopefully, you’ve learnt lessons which you shouldn’t repeat. Rather than focus on what you don’t want, focus on being the person you would like to be with. We mirror each other in relationships. Our job is not to change our partners in our relationship. And neither should be expect our partner to bring about some magical change in us. If you have an ugly temper, you can’t lamely say, “because you bring out the worst in me”. Be accountable for how you feel.

You’re Using It As A Filler

Maybe you’ve just gotten over a divorce or volatile relationship and your current job is stagnant – you feel stuck in life. If you find yourself being on the hunt every weekend trying to score and make yourself feel better or distract yourself from the ache inside, you are definitely not ready for a committed relationship. Be willing to work through your mess and not pretend that there’s been no emotional damage. Don’t cover it with casual flings.

You Can’t Ever Admit You’re Wrong

Have you learnt any lessons from your previous broken relationships? Do you accept that there was truth in what your ex said? If however you have a really hard time apologising and give others a hard time when they do, you still have a lot to learn and evolve. Though, no one is ever right but you feel that you’ve been the victim all along or you are willing to sour things in your relationship over your ego, maybe you are better playing the weekend doing game. There’s no point having a relationship without a healthy foundation of understanding. And if you’re not willing to sort through your mess you’ll just have another bad relationship.

The change needs to begin with you.

Pet Therapy And Your Emotional Health

Those of us who own pets know they make us happy. And thankfully, a growing body of scientific research is showing that our pets are good for our emotional well being.

I have forever had a dog and despite the inevitable heart break, this has been an never ending love affair. Whether you are dealing with depression or anxiety, pets have a way of calming you down. One study even indicates that when people with borderline hypertension adopted dogs from a shelter, their blood pressure declined significantly within five months.

Research also indicates, when dealing with stressful situations at work or home  playing with your pet can elevate levels of serotonin and dopamine, which calm and relax. Research indicates, pet owners have lower triglyceride and cholesterol levels (indicators of heart disease) than those without pets.

Besides your emotional well being, they also take care of your physical well being. They get you going, allowing you to blow off pent up stress and relax, distracting you from situations/ things you could be battling with and forcing you to be in the present.

While, pets are miracle mood enhancers, do ensure that you are taking care of them and not just using them to entertain you temporarily and then abandon them. Don’t scream/ shout at them, pets especially dogs are hyper sensitive about our moods. It’s like having a child at home. Imagine the emotional trauma you could cause to a being who is voiceless and unable to express his anxiety. In fact, pets can teach you emotional discipline with their unconditional love. If you see you dog hiding behind couches or going in another room and hiding – it’s a sure red flag for you not to have a pet.

Every time you walk through your door they will be as enthusiastic as they were when you first got them. Caring for your pets is extremely rewarding for your emotional health. With growing children in the house, pets can encourage expressing love, being responsible and being a kind human – which goes a long way in bringing up emotionally healthy adults.

Try and get a pet from the shelter, they make excellent companions. They teach you that though life is short, all you can do is love unconditionally and be grateful.

What Have You Attracted In Your Life?

An important part of my work are affirmations. I often suggest them towards end of my Tarot readings as exercises to have different perspectives, and watch over our thoughts carefully. Over a period of time, I have realised the misinterpretation towards affirmations. Some roll their eyes dismissively , some do them half heartedly while others simply reject them. Most give up doing the affirmations mid way, for some it just feels like a waste of time. The trick to doing affirmations is to feel them, in your heart, in your mind and in your bones.

I understand, for some after life’s repeated beating, deep dejection can set in. But I also know, that we attract people, situations exactly in spaces of our life where growth is required. This is not to say, that should suffer endlessly on the contrary this is about going against self defeating thoughts which if carried on for a long period of time can physically debilitate you besides turning you negative.

There is no great secret behind the “law of attraction”. We attract what we think or at times people, situations where we need to grow.

You can leave bad situations, abusive relationships and dead relationships. There is no higher good in suffering. The secret lies in fighting against negative conditioning. Be your cheer leader, be your own champion. Don’t let anyone define for you, what you can and can’t do.

You have the power to manifest goodness and love in your life.

 

Working Through Intimacy

“If a problem is fixable, if a situation is such that you can do something about it, then there is no need to worry.  If it’s not fixable, then there is no help in worrying.  There is no benefit in worrying whatsoever.” — Dalai Lama XIV

All relationships have a pattern. Well almost. As much as we promise ourselves after each experience “this is the last time I will let this effect me so deeply”, we promptly go back to the same reaction/space the moment the situation gets recreated. Romantic love is beautiful, but no matter how full the moon that first night, no matter how many willows are weeping and birds singing your song, you can’t build years of relationship on that lovely, fragile foundation and spend nights whispering sweet nothings in each others ears.

There are plenty of roads that can lead to disappointment. But the heaviest traffic probably turns up on the one traveled by people in search of love. Consider the plight of Vikram and Sakshi, a couple in their  late 30s who found each other at a mutual friend’s party. Both successful professionals moving steadily forward in their careers—he as a creative director in an advertising agency who also played bass in a leading band, she with a big job in the media, producing documentary films for a television channel.

When their eyes first met, the din of the party seemed to recede and the room light up for the two of them with a glow of promise. After a few months of Friday and Saturday nights together, they moved in with each other. Within a year, marriage felt right to both of them.

But marriage turned out to be a good deal more than they had bargained for. As singles living together, they’d conducted their lives separately. When they dined together, it was usually in restaurants. Now someone had to shop and cook, clear the table and organise the daily chores. Not to mention the mad dash to the gym every night.  It became more and more difficult to find time for making love. They were both too tired anyway.

The extraordinary experience of romantic love conveys the feeling that “the two of us are as one.” But the daily tasks of living together can quickly dissolve couple of notions that they have found such a perfect union. As their different rhythms and preferences emerge in the course of living together, each comes to feel that the other may not be, after all, the ideal partner who brings salvation from loneliness, deprivation, a sense of personal inadequacy, or other anxieties of the solitary self. “You are not who I thought you were,” they tell each other. And from the depths of this disappointment, they often turn to accusing each other of deception, selfishness, or worse.

Disappointment is a stage of love nearly every serious intimate relationship—probably every one that lasts longer than overnight—has to struggle with. It may strike suddenly or build up slowly, but once the battling begins, it can assume tragic proportions for a couple trying to make a life together.

Falling in love leads to such Herculean expectations of happiness that it can feel like the discovery of Eden. But falling out of fairyland with regularity also seems to be our lot.  There’s nothing like your mind playing games that you have yet again failed at love and that if this relationship does not work, will I ever find one that does?

Unfortunately, most of us grow up thinking, “love is easy or effortless” and the thought of working on a relationship itself is perceived as a tedious task. We hesitate in our hearts and minds to “work through it” because relationships that require work are difficult relationships. Thanks to the information we pick up during our growing years through movies or books, where love is all about oneness, sunsets and did I forget to mention easy. Boy meets girl, falls in love and they zoom off somewhere lovely!

Truth be told, the best relationships are constantly effort in motion. Couples who have perfect relationships have mastered the art of managing each others expectations simply because they love each other enough to roll up their sleeves and deal with what they have. They recognise that they are different individuals who have chosen to live together and accept that there will be differences in their outlook. This is where maturity comes to play. To be able to step back and know that the one you love deeply also has flaws.

At all times being empathetic with each other does the magic. Empathy helps turn anger into sorrow. When sorrow becomes mutual, it begins to erase the lines drawn in the sand. Only then does the possibility of apology and forgiveness become real. I consider this sequence—anger, sorrow, apology, forgiveness—one of the most important developmental passages in marriage or in therapy with couples because it is a prerequisite for the restoration of innocence and trust.

I also think at times it’s good to be disappointed early on in a relationship – it gives you time to realign your expectations and your partners. Plus disappointment has a future; depression doesn’t. There is no where to go if you are already at the end of the story. With disappointment, the plot is still taking shape, even though there may be hard work to do learning to tolerate the unknown of the future despite past suffering and to risk rebuilding a social life anyway together.

A flourishing intimacy is likely to demand an extraordinary amount of empathy and patient cultivation from both partners.

The first drafts of love are usually in need of considerable revision. As long as both the partners are willing to work at it.

I guess Blinkie said it right you Don’t give up on love

You and me, me and you
In the summertime
How we touched, how we kissed
Felt so right
Sun is gone, but the moon shines so bright
And I know we will share under the same star tonight
Oh, don't give up on love, don't give up on love, don't give up on love
Dance with me like no one else can see
Hold me like you don't want to be free
Sun is gone, but the moon shines so bright
And I know we will share under the same star tonight

Cause' I just wanna dance with you
Won't you let me dance with you?
Oh, don't give up on love, don't give up on love, don't give up on love

 

Forever Friends…..

So no one told you life was gonna be this way

Your job’s a joke, you’re broke, your love life’s D.O.A.

It’s like you’re always stuck in second gear

When it hasn’t been your day, your week, your month, or even your year, but

 I’ll be there for you, (When the rain starts to pour)

I’ll be there for you, (Like I’ve been there before)

I’ll be there for you, (‘Cause you’re there for me too)  (The Rembrandt) 

I had thought – nah assumed we would be friends forever…best friends…Regular friends would come and go ..but you and I will always be there….have each other’s back…we have had each other’s back… At times I thought you knew me like no one did…you stood up for me when I couldn’t stand up for myself…you were the friend who was to stay forever the way you were.

Then we grew up…but we still held on…now we met for an occasional holiday..a work trip…a night out and we comforted ourselves that we were still the same…Some more time went by…we changed cities…we spoke less…we got busier…life started happening to us. Now we spoke once in three months…we made more friends…friends who were near us…our families, children took priority like they should perhaps…and we went along…got lost in the circus of lunches, dinners…the entire facade …When the words started failing we repeated our stories to our kids….how we were inseparable…how we knew each other’s every little secret… only now we didn’t say anything to each other…

Many times I tried to slow down the merry-go-round and tell you – I need to talk to you like I can’t talk to anyone else..coz you get me…you will understand but I just watched the merry go round spin round and round thinking, how busy were or at least you would know what I was going through or you just might ask…and I waited…I depended on the telepathic connect you and I always shared..but months of silence had dulled the connection. We carried on in silence you and I.…

You have not gone anyway and neither have I – we are still a phone call – a flight away but suddenly now, the void between us seems huge ….I am still not willing to let go of the thin threads that hold us…Every now and then, I try to quieten the panic that rises in me…not this friendship….I always assumed as we grew older, we would be more courageous, braver ….but why do I see you hiding behind the niceness…carefully wrapped …I see you carefully jumping over the uncomfortable topics.… hesitate over the not so nice stuff….and wonder when did caution get in our friendship…..when did you start averting your eyes….

Out of all the different readings that I do, more often than not I see the Three of Cups reversed come up in friendship readings when things have gone a bit out of whack. The Three of cups when reversed in Tarot means broken friendships, jealousy, expectations that do not come true, infidelity, depression, not listening to your feelings.  Often it is a reflection that you, the querent, are that third person and may be involved in an affair or dealing with an unfaithful partner. But in friendships it depicts a loss of a friendship, heart break due to friends. When this card appears in a reading, look to the other cards for more detail on the nature of the relationship as well. However, if this card appears in a reading regarding love/relationships it can indicate infidelity, lust, extra marital relationships or the end of a relationship.

3 of cups reversed can sometimes indicate that good fortune is around or positivity is around the corner but you cannot see it. If the reading is career related, it can show that a new partnership may not work out well, or that you are giving too much to a situation or asking too much from it.

 

Being stuck!!

I went back to my tarot books with a passion of a person parched for water since ages. It was nothing profound I was looking for – just idle curiosity as to what the cards will tell me – since I rarely read for myself except when I am studying new spreads.

There has been a feeling of “being suspended” that refuses to leave me since a month now. While, I do enjoy the mindless ease it offers me, the lack of movement has started irritating me.

The Four of cups being a constant in my spread – which on the surface speaks of stillness, but water being emotions is anything but still.

4 of Cups : Stillness or unaddressed emotions?

This is the kind of forced waiting that one does when you’re just not feeling up to it. It’s disappointment mixed with frustration. You had thought that you’ve put in your best and you will be rewarded – but it didn’t happen. There’s anger with hopelessness. These emotions have a way of dragging you down so you don’t even want to keep trying or hoping. Just forget it, you think, I should just forget it. But you can’t. So you wait until something happens to engage your emotions or passions again. Waiting through this card can feel awful, so the advice would be to try not to be so pessimistic and look around you for opportunities you may be missing that would fill your cup again. The trick is to look at what you STILL have and are ignoring. It’s a time to introspect – stay calm, centered with your emotions (or lack of them) and accept that we all go through times like this. Not a great time to make any decisions, I would rather wait, let this phase get over before I act.

The next card personally really tires me out when accompanied with a four. It’s a 8 of sword.

Stuck. So bloody stuck. I always get the sense of foul play with this card. As though this woman is not here by choice or her doing but has been deceived into being tied there. This could be her freedom to think, her self belief on her capabilities. She seems to have realized this, but does not know how the hell to get out of this situation. The advice here isn’t about waiting for rescue, because that isn’t going to happen. This card speaks about taking ownership of your emotions, your situations and realizing that you could have also been a victim of your own mind. The waiting in this card is less about standing still any longer, but to listen to your inner self and release yourself of self limiting thoughts ideas fed into your head. The card advise that whatever you decide to do, do it careful planning.

In row, the next card, 4 of Pentacles is viewed in a rather negative light, as a stubborn, miserly, greedy, kind of energy. But in terms of advice and waiting it can mean not these traits but something different:

It speaks of a phase which is cautioning you not to give any of your valued resources, your skills for free or cheap.It talks about holding your ground and and not bending.Define your boundaries. Don’t give in. This card does on the surface suggest waiting, but it’s more about sticking to your beliefs and refusing to be manipulated or victimized. The card advises not to take any action. Don’t sell yourself short.

While waiting is hard, really hard sometimes, when the advice is clear that waiting is the best course of action,or non-action, we can at least use the time wisely and productively by following the other clues in the card’s advice. If we need to take a break from the situation, do that. Take a long walks with your dog, go to a movie, whatever it takes to get away from the anxiousness of waiting. If the card says just keep doing what you’ve been doing, then do that and try not to stress over “what if’s”.

If you’re supposed to start taking baby steps, take one. Doesn’t matter which one, just move in a direction. If you can’t actually do anything, try to see the situation from other perspectives.

Sometimes, a change of mind and understanding can actually be the key to getting unstuck.

Do I follow my heart or stick to my job?

It is not working out at my work place. I am doing well in the current projects. But, I strongly feel I need to do more. Maybe, study further, go and work in another country. I have been thinking about this for a year now – but I do not know whether I should take this plunge. Is this just a “feeling” that I have or do I explore this seriously?

My client is a successful project leader with a software company. Despite being intelligent and highly qualified he seemed to be running into a dead end at his work place. And the restlessness was effecting his work.

He came recommended through his company’s HR manager with whom I had done a 2 day “employee productivity workshop” and yes – through Tarot as a medium.

The core of his reading was Two of Wands. Wands represent creativity.

Two of Wands basic message is: Work is underway.  Balance between action and passivity.  Potential not fulfilled yet.  Energy, enterprise, passion, with balance.  New venture starting on firm foundation.  Many opportunities but outcomes not clear yet.  Good advice being given and received.

In general, I find the Mars-Aries connection to be the most useful one for the Two of Wands. As the first sign of the zodiac, Aries confers leadership ability. It is also characterized as being impulsive and quick-tempered. In numerology – 2 represents duality, the combing of two 1’s, the concept of self and other.

When The Two of wands appears prominently in the reading with the corresponding cards indicating a similar tone, you need to ask yourself the follo:

Are you feeling in charge?
Is your sense of self-empowerment so thorough that you feel like taking a gamble?
Are there area’s where you are accomplished and are ready to go to the next level?
Do you wish to embark on a new project or enterprise?
How could you take this pioneering spirit and apply it to your life to achieve a new level of success?
Do you believe in yourself and that you are deserving of abundance in your life?

You have already come so far but now you feel it is ready for a change, this time with your long-term future in mind.
You may be considering overseas travel, further education or a major career change at this point in order to expand your learning and development, and to grow your horizons beyond your immediate environment.

With careful planning, and a moderated approach, you will set yourself up for success in the future.

The Twos in Tarot often represent decisions of some sort. In the case of the Two of Wands, you are making a decision between sticking with what you know, or expanding your horizons and taking a risk.

You know that the world has to offer you something ‘bigger’ or more meaningful, yet you are also aware that in order to maximise on this opportunity, you must leave your familiar grounds.

Even though you have already invested a lot into your current circumstances, for you to be able to grow and to maximise your potential, it is imperative that you step out into a new world and explore your options.

It may take some courage to take the first step but this card gives you the confidence of self-knowledge. You know what your goal is, what your creative process is directing for you, and you are confident in its eventual fulfillment.

Go ahead and explore the world.

New Beginings

The whole world’s broke and it ain’t worth fixing
It’s time to start all over make a new beginning
There’s too much pain too much suffering
Let’s resolve to start all over make a new beginning
Start all over Start all over Start all over Start all
(Tracy Chapman)

I have given up a lucrative job to start off on my own – I do have sufficient money in my bank to last me for a while….but after that, I do not know. But, I am clear that I can’t work for anyone anymore.

I was reading for a client who after being in the corporate world for 13 years was giving it all up – fed up each day of living on a deadline. I want more she said softly, I want more out of my life….the money is fine, but this is not it – I know that.

The core of her reading was the Fool card and I was personally happy to see it.

The Fool is the first card of the Major Arcana & it is not numbered. I also think somewhere the number 0 is a perfect significator for the Fool, as it can become anything when he reaches his destination as in the sense of ‘joker’s wild’. Zero plus anything equals the same thing. Zero times anything equals zero. Uranus is the ruling planet of the Fool in Tarot-astrology.

Of all the cards in the tarot, the Fool represents that way of being the best. Its essence is about doing new things. Often we get stuck in routines and old patterns, which no longer suit us, but we hold onto them because they bring us a feeling of safety. This card is about mixing it up a bit and perhaps doing something a little daring!

I personally love the Fool’s ability to speak frankly. As court jesters, they had free access to the king at any time of day—a privilege accorded to none of the other ministers.  There are many cases where the Fool used his privilege to dissuade a ruler of some disastrous course of action, sometimes speaking out against social injustices.

This custom was also practiced in the Orient, and in the New World, where, for example, the Aztec ruler Montezuma also had jesters.  In order to generate a constant stream of witticisms, many fools were very learned, being fluent in different and ancient languages, and educated in the classics as well as other fields of learning.

Different writers have commented on how The Fool in the tarot, as an unnumbered card, has the ability to barge into the card sequence or reading anywhere he likes.

So, when the Fool appears in your reading, you might think about how he may be interrupting the flow of the reading with a warning. He is a signal to strip down to the irreducible core, and interrogate whether your self-vision is obscured. It may also be a warning that significant change is coming.

Another interpretation of the card is that of taking action where the circumstances are unknown, confronting one’s fears, taking risks, and so on.

Also, in the interest of bold speech, are you being frank with yourself or others? Is this a situation where there is the proverbial 500-pound gorilla in the room that no one is willing to talk about?

Stay fluid, accept change as it comes – for it would be for the better.

Patterns

If history repeats itself, and the unexpected always happens, how incapable must Man be of learning from experience.
(George Bernard Shaw)
In some form or the other we have a tendency to draw a certain kind of people to ourselves. We wonder why a certain “kind” always follows us? In the form of a colleague or a boss or even in a personal relationship. As a client described, “I’ve a penchant for drawing all the losers” and I don’t know why”?

Good or bad – its a vibration we send out and we receive it in the same tone – form and emotion. Look around yourself – and see the world around you is a creation of yourself.

Some times there’s some unfinished business with certain relationships – where instead of sorting things at the core we get impatient and move on – another job another relationship. Trying to fit in the picture “frame” we have created in our heads. Sadly, a lot of times, sufficient time is not given to sort things out – specially in the corporate world to re align people as per fitment into another roles. They are often labeled as “incompetent” or non achievers and either made to quit or given a role which makes them non productive. The end results go deeper. The “non – performer” is judged by the last job done and carries the cross for the rest of his career.

There is a certain energy which an organization exudes which may or may not be conducive to individuals. So we’ll have the likes of a very aggressive org having a “like minded” read – people with similar energies who work well together. And you’ll have a new senior person join and quit within 3 months not because he was a non performer but because he was far too “mild”. It amazes not only the hiring org but also the individual who was “technically” fit for the role on paper was now unable to “deliver”. In most cases people “rough” it out till another opportunity comes by or some of the lesser fortunate are made so uncomfortable that they quit willingly.

Its a fairly common practice to find when CEO’s quit – take their key team together to the new organization. Necessarily not because they were all star performers – but they all have one basic thing in common – they worked very well together and understood where to push and where to draw the line.

Its also known as having similar energy patterns – where people start thinking and behaving alike. This of course is one silent aspect.

I do not why but repeating patterns often reminds me of Saturn – the unfinished work – the constant feeling of being sent to the blackboard. It alsto rules structure, limitation, experience and discipline without which not much would get accomplished.

In astrology, Saturn rules the sign of Capricorn. This sign, as its ruling planet, moves through life with slower, methodical, purposeful structure. In Tarot, it is represented by the World – which is the last card in the Major Arcana.

As such, it embodies the completion of a long, sometimes difficult journey. The World represents all elements coming together in order for us to receive the satisfaction and success for which we’ve been striving.

What’s the fuss about 11/11/11?

As a thumb rule, when a person keeps seeing the same number pattern – sometimes with slight variations – it points to two things. The meaning of the numbers involved are a current issue for the individual, and the numbers function as a warning to get the person to pay attention. When I look back I’ve had the total of number 4 appear various times over major things that happened in my life. And the month October.
For example, when the number 11 is prominent within the pattern, as seems to be the case more often than any other number, intuition – or the acceptance thereof – is an issue, and ….. you better take some time and make the effort to figure out what your subconscious is trying to tell you.

Interestingly 11’s have played important roles in recent history. The 11th minute of the 11th hour of the 11th day is the official moment of remembrance for the lives lost during, and cessation of, the terrible fighting in Europe during WWI. Two minutes of silence are observed, a pair of 1’s yet again.

With the number 11 the issue is always one of subtlety, intuition, sensitivity, awareness, and the presence of knowledge that is not being applied. You need to trust your intuition. Your gut feelings tend to be more reliable than your “rational” understanding. You are making the wrong decisions based on what you think you know, while deep down your intuitive understanding is telling you to go a different direction.
Often, people experience this number pattern in the early stages of a relationship, start or finishing of a new job and in that context, it should be considered a warning. Moving slowl, looking for details which we may have missed while focussing on the larger picture. This does not mean that just because you see the number 11 appear everywhere, you should not join the new place or end the relationship. But it does mean that there are certain things you should be aware of. Actually, I should say you are, deep within, aware of them, but you need to make the next step and consciously acknowledge what you already know on a subconscious level.
When looking at the corresponding Tarot card, we find the Justice card. Justice represents education, and guidance come under the 11 Justice Tarot card which seeks to bring about balance through justice. The Justice card is ruled by the astrological sign Libra, who teaches us to communicate through our seventh astrological house of cooperation and love. Libra also rules the kidneys, the organs of elimination that maintain the chemical balance of the body.

When the 11:11 appears to you, it is your wake-up call. A direct channel opens up between you and the Invisible. When this happens, it is time to reflect on whatever you are doing for a moment and Look Larger. A transfer is in position. You can enter the Greater Reality if you wish pray or meditate and seed your future and also, you can be seeded by the Invisible. You can ask for help in some specific area of your life or simply listen quietly and receive a revelation.

The symbol of the scales on the card itself represent karma – work, action, reaction, and the law of cause and effect.

Numbers are associated with a specific frequency, so seeing them repeated so often speaks to that frequency being active in your life… and some say that these numbers are triggering awakenings deep within our subconscious.
