Let’s Talk : Expressing My Authentic Self?

It’s time to see how you might express your authentic self. 

There’s a lot to do now that we’re well & truly into the New Year, how can you best express your authentic self?

Being true to yourself is often a way that people trip up with things. There are so many pressures on us from others; their expectations & their noise drown out our own self-perceptions. We sometimes struggle to get our own thoughts to focus on the positive & the future. It can take a time to get them to do that, such is the loudness of others.

There’s no such thing as normal, everyone is weird! Honestly, we all are! Celebrating it means being a little brave or sometimes, a lot brave. It’s about trusting ourselves to our very core & displaying that trust.  Sometimes that comes over arrogant or over-confident, but it need not be the case.

The Spread & Cards

Card 1: what does my authentic self, look like? 2 – The Seer

Card 2: what’s the worst way I can express this? The 2 of Arrows

Card 3: what’s the best way I can express this? 21 – The World Tree

The Reading: 

What does my authentic self, look like? The Seer is intuitive, she’s not great at speaking up, but she knows more than she’s letting on with things. She trusts her intuition & is willing to guide people but will only tell you what she thinks if you’re brave enough to ask for it. Though, you may not like some of the answers that come back.

What’s the worst way I can express this?  The 2 of Swords hints that being indecisive, unsure of your thoughts or expressing yourself badly is not going to be the best way to achieve this.

What’s the best way I can express this? The World Tree is a complicated message. How can I express The World Tree? Act like I’m entitled? Well, the whole World seems to be doing that, I don’t want to jump on that particular bandwagon. I do feel that this says to keep changing things up. I like how the tree shows all four seasons, the tree changes. Everyone changes. Perhaps the best way to express this is to do just that: keep on changing, growing, exploring.

Conclusion: 

The World Tree is the card I’m focusing on here: this is the most complicated card to have come up in the last position, but for one of the best reasons, it’s going to have to sit with me for a little while so I can get it and I have a feeling that it’s going to be a message I’m going to hear over & over this year.

I need to keep on progressing, changing & guiding. I ask you: So do you, don’t you? Think about it.

        I did the reading for my daily Tarot yesterday, working with my new DruidCraft Tarot cards. Here’s what I got:

        1- Two of Swords
        2- Three of Swords
        3- Ace of Swords

        Quite an unexpected result but it made perfect sense on further investigation! My authentic self is in conflict because I have a dual nature and cannot work out how to embrace both sides of my self. Does that make sense to you? 😉

          Yes, it does. Almost very witch and HP I’ve known has this issue… The ace suggests baby steps, clear intention and truthfulness.
