Tarot Archetypes: Resources for Recession and Revitalization
In these times of challenge and stress, we need resources to survive and sustain. Because success is ultimately an inside job, by activating the powerful Archetypes of Tarot that exist within us and in the etheric force fields, we have tapped into a vast mine of resource energy and wisdom.
We explore the Archetypes of Fool through Fortune to gather strength and guidance. In so doing, we learn to embody the cards and understand them at the deepest level of knowing.
THE STRESS TEST
So, the federal government is going to administer a "stress test" to America's banks by putting hypothetical demands on them to see what kind of resources they possess to meet the posed challenges.
Synchronistically speaking, "as above, so below," and "I am thou," we are all undergoing stress tests. ...
Before we knock stress, let's understand that a little bit of it makes you stronger. Some stress can kick in adrenaline, which actually grows new brain cells and keeps you younger. Remember the adage that "if it doesn't kill you, it makes you stronger."
Anyway, those of us who pass the stress test do so because we have deeper pockets and/or more agile legs to cope. In our intuition lingo, this means we have greater access to our multi-dimensional nature. This, in turn, means that we are more dialed in to our many archetypes – the ultimate repository of life resources.
ARCHETYPES: "THE RESOURCES FOR RECESSION"
By activating the great universal and eternal archetypes, you tap into the ultimate resource, the source of all, the life force. For me, experiencing all sorts of work cancellations and reductions along with my dad's journey to the other side is stressful, and here's how the Tarot's archetypes for getting through have helped me.
(btw... many of the qualities associated with these archetypes have been identified as the necessary components for living a "lucky" life. Good fortune is a science of mind, not just random chance).
For example, instead of being overrun by the rapid changing of this world, our mercurial, flex-able, agile Magician archetype can keep us up to speed. Instead of losing out because of lack of creativity, we have an inner Art (Alchemist) who can put together passion, purpose and play into productivity. Rather than not knowing what to do in this topsy-turvy 21st century existence, we have a wise woman Priestess who can guide us. Without a roadmap for a changing world, the Tarot student can call upon an eternal, universal, archetypal and holistic inner map to know the way.
Now more than ever the stress test of life is pointing us towards accessing archetypes as our ultimate human resources for successful sustainability.
