Need a little clarity, guidance, or just a fun pick-me-up?
Then today’s your day, because we’re back with another Message from the Universe episode! And oooh, it’s a good one. ✨👀🔮
We pulled a few cards from The Enchanted Map deck by Colette Baron-Reid. One or all has a message for you — come find out what it is!
And, mini spoiler (but not really): We ended the episode by talking about how good Rachel is at dream interpretation (not to brag but, VERY good), and how fun it would be to interpret a few listener dreams on the next Message from the Universe episode.
So, if you’ve got a good one to share, email [email protected], subject line “Dream,” and maybe you’ll hear us unpack it in a future episode!
Here are the cards we pulled for you, along with their descriptions:
“You are whole and have everything you need within.”
Upright Position: When the Bone Collector appears, she is asking you to look closely at your circumstances to see if you’re fully present or reacting out of past conditioning and unconscious expectations.
Whenever we’re wounded, especially when we’re young, it’s as if something essential is stolen from us. We adapt, and accept a particular version of the truth that then sets us up to behave a certain way in the future when faced with a situation that reminds us of the original event. What we know about ourselves thus becomes influenced by a perception of limitation.
You may feel unworthy or without courage; you may see yourself as flawed or unlovable, or expect to be criticized. No matter what your question, the Bone Collector reminds you that the truth is that you are a powerful being with limitless possibilities. She has kept safe what was stolen from you in the wounding, and is here for you as you reclaim it now. You have everything you believe you lack, and the Bone Collector is your inner resource. Act as if you have what you need and you’ll find you have it after all. Anything is possible. With awareness, the wounds of the past need not define you.
Reversed Position: The past has a way of repeating itself when you haven’t learned the lesson inherent in the original situation. You’re faced with this now. The Bone Collector is here to challenge you to see yourself as a whole being and not one who is perpetually trying to heal an old wound. You’ll repeat the past if you don’t reclaim the things you believe were lost.
The information you seek lies in your history. Familiarity in this case isn’t an invitation to dance the old dance again; instead, it is a call to retreat and choose differently. The Bone Collector has a message: “If you do what you did, you’ll get what you got.” Her warning is delivered with kindness, for she has deep love and respect for you. She will protect you.
Spirit of Place
“Authenticity is the essence of power.”
Upright Position: Our ancestors believed that every place has a Spirit looking after it or embodying it: Just as we have a soul, the plants, trees, birds, mountains, and rivers have their own essences.
When the Spirit of Place arrives in your reading, it says that the answer to your query is in the overarching theme of your circumstances. Is your question about a struggle? The answer is to relax and let go of your need to control the situation. If your inquiry relates to finding love, then embody love rather than long for it. Once you find the essential truth that underlies your question and then name it, you’ll discover the answer you’ve been seeking. Your greatest power is your authenticity.
Reversed Position: Don’t get entangled in details or desires that obscure the truth of your situation. Step back and ask yourself, What is the real nature of my inquiry? Even exquisitely seductive hidden agenas cannot conceal this. Trust your intuition, the Spirit of Place is whispering in your ear. You hold the power to tell the truth – first to yourself, then to the world. You can always distinguish between an essence that is true and one that is “synthetic.”
Be honest with yourself, and remain willing to let your situation be revealed for what it really is and not what you want it to be. An apple can’t become an orange, just as a dog can never be a bird. Are you trying to change someone or something to suit your agenda? Only when you see things as they truly are will you find the real treasure.
“A true commitment is a responsibility of the heart, mind, body, and soul. This is a good time to make one.”
Upright Position: Partnerships formed at this time are harmonious and powerful. The Commitment card also indicates the natural evolution of a relationship from its inception to a literal or metaphorical marriage. At the very least, there is a promise of fulfillment in some form. However, you must be conscious of what you’re committing to. Be clear about the nature of your commitment and your responsibility to it.
Others are more willing to enter into partnerships at this time. Remember that your partnership with Spirit–and the highest version of your own self–will engage the highest self in another.
Reversed Position: You may be walking into a commitment or contract you will later regret. This isn’t a good time to sign agreements or make any choice that would tie you up for a long period. If you’re in a relationship, you may not receive the commitment you desire. Don’t despair, for something much better awaits you.
Now is also the time for agreements to be broken. Remember that “rejection is God’s protection.” What hurts you now leads to wisdom later.
