Growing up is a constant process of learning and change. It’s unpleasant, frustrating, and ultimately rewarding. If you are struggling with moving forward in your life, the answer lies in doing exactly those things that are scary, unpleasant, frustrating, and (ultimately) rewarding.
You need to confront your fears and claim your own power. You need to stop living in a world that you wish was true, and start living in the world as it actually is. Basically, you need to grow up into your Best Self.
This tarot spread will help you become clear on the stories you tell yourself about your life and your specific situation. When reading this spread, first identify ONE situation or problem that keeps repeating in your life or that is causing major pain.
Reading the Tarot Spread
For the tarot spread, shuffle the cards any way you’d like and lay out five cards in the order shown in the image above.
CARD ONE AND TWO: What can I control?
These cards represent what you control about this situation.
CARD THREE AND FOUR: What is outside of my control?
These cards represent what you have no control over in this situation.
CARD FIVE (LAID FACE DOWN): Is this actually true???
Turn this card over once you have recorded your answers for Cards One through Four.
You can only control your thoughts, beliefs, choices, words, and actions. Knowing this, use this card to look at your answers from Cards One through Four.
Are there additional things you can control about this situation? What is actually outside of your control? Do you need to change your answers to Cards One through Four?
What have you learned about your thoughts related to control and non-attachment?
