Frog Prince – Confidence, Success
Receiving an award, recognition or praise. Having a boost of confidence and self-esteem. Enjoy the moment, be happy and humble.
This month's card validates the current energy theme that's been increasing the last couple of weeks which is that people are eager to get their confidence and vitality back. Many people are feeling they've developed a certain level of anxiety while simultaneously feeling they've lost some of their independence and confidence. This card heralds its gradual return! Notice Spirit said gradual and not immediate, so don't look to get back to a previous level of energy or enthusiasm but rather focus on connecting with a new level of energy and enthusiasm that serves you most right now. Be gentle but steadfast in your commitment to feel better and be your best. You are worth it.
Has your view of life become jaded? Are you taking this human experience for granted, or willing it away? You have the power to shift focus at any given moment; it's staying in loving awareness that will set you free.
It has been, and continues to be, a chaotic time. But. playing devil's advocate, let us take a moment to acknowledge some of the positive changes that have stemmed from these chaotic times. Many people have reviewed their lives and made some big changes, ultimately putting them on their highest path. These have included exiting unhealthy relationships, opening to new love, moving, relocating, changing jobs or careers, prioritizing their health, and simplifying their lives. This is the light in the dark. The last year-and-a-half forced a lot of people to come face to face with feelings and patterns they might have otherwise been able to delay or distract themselves from. Doing some serious soul-searching has allowed us to discover what is joyful and healthy in our lives, and what, if anything, needs to change. So the point is that underneath all the challenge, worry, uncertainty, and divisiveness, there has been a steady dose of fearlessness constantly present.
Connecting with nature, sitting in stillness with Spirit, sacred ceremony and ritual: these will all help your energy feel more robust. What happens if your kid hurts themselves, or has to do something scary? They usually get comforted or rewarded with a treat and a big hug and a kiss after. What about your inner child? The more you love them up, the more that vibrant youthful energy you're longing for gets stoked, like fuel to a fire. I am hearing the song 'a smile goes a long, long way', so remember that simply navigating your day in your light and kindness are what have a natural positive effect on yourself and others. How can you radiate light and model surrender, acceptance, and compassion this month? Count your blessings—it is Thanksgiving after all!—and you'll be feeling like a winner this month.
Take your inner child by the hand and give them a hug; tell them you understand that they feel tired and isolated, and are maybe a little nervous about what's to come. But just like if you were dropping off your child at preschool for the first time, you would encourage them, comfort them, and nudge them forward. Do the same for yourself. Challenge yourself to take one baby step this month that will help support a new beginning or manifestation. Maybe you join a meetup to make a new friend, or sign up for a new course that interests you, donate time to a cause you're passionate about to re-engage in the community. Do something this month that scares you—it is Halloween after all!—and you will come out the other side more confident. If something serves to break you down it's only so you can be built back up stronger and wiser. Emotional strength and heightened faith are big ones that are being fostered right now.
Your fated life you are born into, your destined life you create. This month is a significant junction in powering forward your destiny and releasing old fates. Your solar plexus has potential to be on fire this month as you let go and turn with the season.
On the first of every month, I pull a card from my Faye Oracle Cards, which feature characters from my book, A Tale of Faye. I share what the card and character represent, as well as any additional insights my guides bring through so that you can be aware of the energy and make the most of the month. I also share any energy themes and thoughts as I feel guided.
