Positive Realism

Our Divine Download for August 9, 2020 is "Release Negativity/Scorpio Full Moon" from the Moonlology Oracle Cards. Two consecutive cards about releasing? Imagine that?! Scorpio is a water sign and it's all about the deep murky depths of your emotions. Scorpions also have those nifty little stingers on their tails and will absolutely whip around and sting you with them. In the same way the illumination of the full Moon on the card is putting you on alert that you are stinging yourself with your own toxic and negative emotions, especially those that you are holding onto and pushing down into the deep depths of your heart and soul. How's that working for you? How does that feel? Humans are an odd breed in that when faced with uncertainty, our apparent default is automatic negativity and pessimism. We don't know what's going to happen but we're 100% sure it's going to be absolute shit. And you know what? It might be. BUT the reality is that there is an equal chance that it might NOT be. We just don't know yet and we just don't have enough information yet. We try to speculate and calculate and work out what's going to happen and how it's all going to go down, which when sprinkled with a healthy dose of pessimism and negativity is a recipe for an absolute shit show. What if we just ride it out? What if we just wait and see? What if we don't look at all the ways that things can and in our opinions likely will go wrong, but we look at all the potential for things to go right? It's not pragmatism to look only at the negative side of things, it's pessimism. Realism is a more balanced approach, but in order to be a realist, you still need to look at all the ways that something can go right, all the potential for success. When was the last time you did that? Have you EVER done that?! Do you really truly know how to do that in a meaningful way? Look, it's time to let go of the negative. It's time to release it. That doesn't mean that you have to be in lala land, but it also means that you can't dwell in a place where your closest neighbor is the Crypt Keeper either. Challenge yourself. Pushing yourself to release the negative is probably pretty far outside of your comfort zone for most of us because our media certainly does not focus on the positive or any sort of balanced approach. But, be the change as you release. For every negative or pessimistic thought that you thing, find a realistic, positive "this is how this could work out" type thought to match it. For every horrific headline you read or news report that you hear, seek out the balance. Sometimes you have to seek out illumination in order to be able to release. That just makes the release that much more potent and powerful.

When things have seemed challenging for any length of time, it can feel daunting to try to find the positives and those just maybes. A 60 minute Angel Card Reading can infuse you with a mega dose of positivity and provide a helpful perspective check: Book A Session!
