Weight Loss Tarot Journal - Wounded Inner Child Meditations - Osho Zen Tarot

November 25, 2019

How am I feeling about my meditations this past weekend?
Participation (4 of Wands)  
Osho Zen Tarot _________________________________________

My meditations to deal with inner child issues for myself and my father were illuminating, moving and deeply effective. I was surprised at the things I found and how I was able to deal with them in powerful ways. It was a giant step forward for me in my personal growth and the reverberations will make a huge difference in my life and my efforts to find the roots of my weight loss issues.

I am so thankful to friends who told me about online guided meditations. I had no idea those free resources are available and was amazed at how many there were. Two sites that were particularly helpful were The Honest Guys and Ellen Sirena. I also used a Biddy Tarot meditation on The High Priestess that helped me see and understand important connections.

My deep appreciation to all those putting such important help out there for all of us to use.

Weight Loss Tarot Journal - A Meditation for Me and My Dad - Light Seer’s Tarot

November 23, 2019

What am I likely to find in today’s meditations?
card drawn  -  2 of Cups reversed foundation card  -  Strength deck - Light Seer’s Tarot _________________________________________
I am feeling a fear in my stomach about today’s upcoming meditations to help my and my father’s inner children. Not sure why I feel this way. Fear of the unknown? Fear I might not like something I learn about myself? Not sure.
2 of Cups reversed  -  The energies here flow from the hands into similar golden bowls. But the card is reversed and the energies seem to flow upward. For release? The LWB says this card reversed refers to emotional blocks, not being open to receiving love, and healing past traumas. That sure fits what I will be working on today.  
Foundation card - Strength  -  The card at the bottom of the deck shows the energies surrounding the question asked. I wasn’t going to look at it for this reading but a nudge told me I should. When I turned it over, it was obvious why I had gotte…

Weight Loss Tarot Journal - Wisdom of the Oracle - Healing the Inner Child

November 21, 2019

How am I feeling about my approaching meditations to help my own and my father’s inner children?
Card Drawn  -Between Worlds (3) Foundation Card  -Co-Create (40)
Deck  -Wisdom of the Oracle
_________________________________________
In my efforts to help my own and my father’s inner children, I am planning to do some meditations this weekend, when I will have enough open time to do so and process what I experience. Through caring friends, some helpful information on how to accomplish this has come to me and, although I feel some trepidation about what I might find, I am committed to addressing this part of my weight loss journey. This has prompted my card draw today.

Between Worlds (3) As my father has passed on and I am trying to reach him from this side of the veil, I initially thought ‘between worlds’ meant that. And it certainly fits. I want to reach between worlds to contact my father’s wounded inner child. I also want to help my own wounded inner child. Approaching t…

Weight Loss Tarot Journal - On Love, Forgiveness and Emotional Healing

November 19, 2019

How can I help both my own and my father’s inner child?
for Dad  -  Gathering  | for Me  -  Forgiveness
Deck  -  Messages from the Light Meditation Deck _________________________________________
Since my recent realization of the ramifications of the generational emotional abuse in our family, I have felt a need to care for my inner child, who experienced that abuse. I am also feeling the same need for the inner child of my father, now passed on, who experienced that abuse from his mother. The question is, “How do I do that, especially for my father?” Nurturing these two wounded inner children has begun to feel vitally important.
Last night, it occurred to me to use my Messages from the Light Meditation Deck for some insights on how I might go about this. Although I don’t use this deck often, every time I do, I receive powerful messages. So I drew a card for what I could do for Dad’s inner child, and then one for mine. And again, powerful messages came…
for my father’s i…

Weight Loss Tarot Journal - Light Seer’s Tarot - Judgement - 10 of Swords

November 17, 2019

What weight loss challenge will I face today?

Card drawn  -  Judgement Foundation Card  -  10 of Swords reversed Deck  -  Light Seer’s Tarot _________________________________________
For a while, now, I have been feeling that something emotional and hidden was behind my repeated weight loss failures, but I couldn’t figure out what it might be. I thought if I used Tarot on my journey this time, I might find out what it is. What an important decision that has turned out to be. Finding remnants of a dysfunctional family upbringing has been a big surprise. I thought I had risen above those issues and moved on, but it seems the negative influences planted in a child take deep roots and grow in hidden ways.

Judgement  -  Today, I am being told it is time to let go of the Judgements…  judgements of myself and of my father. I have internalized my father’s demanding voice. “Let it go” is what I am hearing, seeing and feeling in this card. While I suspect this is going to be harder…

Weight Loss Tarot Journal - Wisdom of the Oracle - Mending

November 15, 2019
What should I notice about myself today?
Mending - 52 Deck -Wisdom of the Oracle _________________________________________
Mending - 52 When I drew this card this morning, I knew immediately what it meant. Since my slip the other night, I have been beating myself up mentally for not being perfect.  Having been raised in a family where perfection was expected and required, that perfection has been a hard path to follow in my life, despite my best efforts. (And therein might lie an issue.)  My message from the cards a couple days ago was to keep on keeping on, despite my slip. Today, the message seems to be the same but with the added insight of needing to forgive myself. The guilt that I feel for slipping is deep but I need to realize that it is not a character flaw, just a slip. I should not internalize that I am weak or bad or powerless.

So the mending meant here is to mend my feelings about myself. The pink clouds in the sky and the Oracle’s face nearby both remind me …

Weight Loss Tarot Journal - Explorer of Earth (Knight of Pentacles) - Gaian Tarot

November 13, 2019
I gave in slightly to sugar last night and my weight is up this morning. How am I feeling today?
Explorer of Earth (Knight of Pentacles) Deck - Gaian Tarot _________________________________________

Explorer of Earth (Knight of Pentacles) Pretty straightforward here - slow and steady wins the race. This is a quietly determined knight. She has a goal and will make it happen. She is a detail person, knowing the little things lead to the big things. Here, she is digging into the underbrush, looking for what was making the sugar call rise for the last couple days. She is looking up with a bit of a surprised look on her face. What surprised her? I don’t think it was her falling prey to the sugar, since she knows this is a weak area for her, but something has caught her attention.

Beside her is a badger, a fierce fighter, who protects the home and body. In the distance, maybe unseen by the knight, is her protector. One of my Spirit Animals is the deer and this stag is looking ri…

Weight Loss Tarot Journal - Child of Air (Page of Swords) - Gaian Tarot

November 11, 2019

I was feeling good about my weight loss last week 
and asked for a message for today.
Child of Air (Page of Swords) reversed Deck  -  Gaian Tarot _________________________________________
I am feeling very good about my weight loss so far - down three pounds in a week. YAY!  Toward the end of the week, I was feeling sugar’s call but was able to resist it. Yay again. Feeling so good, I asked the cards for a message for today, curious to see if the message would match what I am feeling. It does. 🦋 💙

Child of Air (Page of Swords) reversed The first thing I noticed were the butterflies. Representing joy, lightness, spirituality and new life, they certainly match how I am feeling. The girl is smiling as she looks at the one she is holding on her hand. She is thrilled she has this connection to Nature. Many more colorful butterflies swirl around her in a spiral, itself a symbol of rising and growth.

I thought those were great messages on their own and felt very good about the…

Tarot in the Everyday - 2 of Swords - Rider-Waite Tarot

I often see Tarot cards showing up in my everyday life and recently, when I was visiting my daughter, I saw her dog experience a classic 2 of Swords moment.

2 of SWORDS The 2 of Swords is traditionally seen as a person caught on the horns of a dilemma. They have to decide between two things of equal value. Sometimes both choices are viable and beneficial. Sometimes both are hard and scary. The point is that they are relatively equal, so how do they choose between them? And therein lies the problem.

That is exactly what happened to my daughter’s dog, Fudge. Daughter was cooking dinner and Fudge was hanging around with his most endearing face, hoping she would give him a bit of the deliciousness she was preparing at the stove. But Daughter was getting annoyed at him for being under foot so I called him over to me to love on him and get him out of her way. Normally, Fudge is all about Grandma’s loving time, but this particular time he just didn’t want to leave the stove area. I kept call…
