READING OF THE MONTH: "StoryTelling"
Select a Major Arcana Archetype card. (These cards are the most complex and diversified and thus the best for storytelling). Go through the card and identify the pictures in it. From these images, make up a story of your life for how it has been up until now. Then, with the same card, reframe the meaning of the symbols and use them to tell a new story starting now and into your future.
This is a great exercise for learning how to reframe beliefs and events so that they give you an empowering story, a growth path, that you can visualize and follow.
"THE POWER OF STORY"
To make the most out of your life, what's your story? What story do you have for your destiny? What story do you have for any endeavor or project? Why is this so important? Because we live our stories. We are our stories. Our stories are a dramatization of our intentions. They make intention much more vivid, memorable, and impacting. Storying your life is to give form to formless intentions. ...
Somewhere in you is a story/vision of your life to come. If it's not articulated, it's almost like sleep walking and/or being run by vague subconscious desires. Like dreams that reveal and guide, so do our waking stories. Tell a story and be your own tell-a-vision.
The great Joseph Campbell, in his work, "The Power of Myth," once declared that the day he woke up was the day he realized he was living someone else's story, like the story his parents or teachers would have him live, but was not his.
One of the secrets to manifestation is to establish a narrative that works for you. And make it mythic. Make up a story with you as the leading mythic character. What's your mythic name? And give your story a title, make it re-memorable. MYTH is an acronym for "Make Yourself The Hero." Life is a hero's journey that you are on, a mythic voyage of discovery and magic.
In your hero's journey story, include elements such as your challenges as well as your allies. We all have to make sacrifices to attain big goals, so include this in your story. Make sure that your story ends well, if not gloriously!
Keep retelling this story to yourself and the story will unfold. One of the secrets of manifestation is having a clear intention and when you story and re-story it, the intention becomes more magnified. A good idea is to create this story as a kind of movie or screen play. By having it as a set of pictures, you have the power of image and imagination behind it, which is the source of magic. If you can see it, you can be it. If you can foresee in your mind's eye, you can forecast – manifest your vision and create your future.
It's best to do a short write-up of your story, or render it artistically or in a dance, or at least tell others who are supportive. This "anchors" your intentions, and we can use all the outside help that we can attract.
I have been fortunate in my life to have created a life story and it is the Voyager Tarot myth. I am a voyager and the cards, which I play with daily, remind me of my story. Remembering and consciously embodying your story is one of the must fun and fundamental ways of making your dreams come true.
FACTOID: Did you know that way, way before you think about buying something you have already decided intuitively. (This is what empirical neuroscience tells us). So, most of our thoughts are stories, after-the-fact rationalizations. At least we can make our stories count by allowing them to ground and create our future.
CONTEST WINNER – The Achiever
For those of you who sweated trying to identify the card in the hand of Voyager Certified Reader Katrina Wynne, we finally have a winner – Stuart Shaw of Tucson, Arizona.
Here is how he identified the Man of Worlds – Achiever.
"The contest card was so blurred I didn’t think it would be possible to pick the winning card. Here’s what I did to make my choice.
I used a magnifying glass to try to find defining features. I found two. The first one I noticed was the reddish color and shape in the upper right corner. I went through the deck to find cards that matched. Achiever appeared to be the best match. The second feature was a little strange. As I continued to look at the card through the glass, the number 2 appeared in the upper right area. So I used the glass to see if I could get the number 2 to appear on the actual card. I was able to distort the card with the glass such that the number 2 appeared in the same place. The other colors seemed to be close, but they were not as definitive as these two features. So, I went for it.
I pick a card a day in the morning and one in the evening. The card I got the evening I entered in the contest was Achiever!"
Though I must say, Stuart, I don't know what number 2 you are referring to in the card. It's all a mystery to me. However, all I did was "zoom" the window and saw the card large and very, very clear. But then again, I am on a Mac.
