~~This week we are experiencing a more expansive connection to our Higher Self and to the Collective Whole that is our earth family. Some of us are longing for deeper connections and look to see why it is or is not happening for us. Things are looking up and we are seeing the light at the end of the tunnel with a particular situation. A positive turn of events happens this week, causing a volatile situation to stabilize.~~We are riding high on success and feeling confident and resilient this week. Our inner strength shows up and shows out to help us navigate what was a combustable situation.~~Opportunities to socialize, foster a new friendship or romance, or hang with new and old friends is happening at the end of the week. There’s a strong need to get out of our shells and enjoy the greenery. Some of us are heading outside, while others are bringing the outdoors in this week.
Extended Messages: Simplicity – Time to declutter, keep it simple and rise above the petty. There’s no need to complicate things. Patience – Enjoy the journey, not just the destination. Avoid the lure of instant gratification. Slow down and take your time. Things are aligning and happening, you just can’t see it yet. Be loving and patient with yourself.
As promised during our Facebook Group Live Happy Hour, I am posting my unboxing of the very cute Inner Compass Oracle. This little deck bumped up the long unboxing list I have, because I am too excited to wait on sharing it.
I purchased this deck to go with The Textured Tarot, as I love the modern, collage style and simple key words. The images just pop, the cardstock is premium and silky, and the small cards are easy to handle.
Created by Heather Hoeps of Intuitive Art, The Inner Compass Oracle is a 50 card deck, independently created and sold on Etsy.
Check out what’s coming up in April at Abundant Life Tarot Premium and the YouTube Channel.

April’s focus: Work & Life Balance – Tuning into What Really Matters
We will focus on looking at work/life balance for the metaphysical healer in a not so peaceful world. How do we balance all the demands of life, while trying to carve out time for things that really matter to us? Are you feeling like you’ve got too many balls in the air and not enough arms to juggle? Well, let’s take a closer look at our culture and the busy myth that we all seem to be entrapped by.
I went to my public library last weekend and checked out The Joy of Doing Nothing: A Real-Life Guide to Stepping Back, Slowing
Down, and Creating a Simpler, Joy-Filled Life, by Rachel Jonat and so far, I like what I’m reading (who doesn’t enjoy a good lesson on doing absolutely nothing?!). There is such a thing as doing absolutely nothing and I am having the most difficult time practicing the concepts…which is leading me to believe I am in desperate need of having some downtime built into my weekly and monthly schedules.
Do you build in time to do absolutely nothing? And if not, what do you think is your biggest obstacle to carving out some “me” time each day? Oftentimes, we lack trust in ourselves, others and in the Universe to get all the things we want accomplished. It is this lack of trust that fuels us to work harder. Yet, working harder only seems to push us further away from happiness, not bring us closer to it. I’d like us to explore the concept of mindful doing nothingness over the next month.
What Defines a do-nothing activity that we can do according to the book:
Your brain should be in idle mode, and you should feel relaxed and peaceful while you perform your activity. Jewelry making comes to mind for me, personally.
It should feel easy to walk away from the activity.
Physical intensity should be very low or nonexistent.
Your mind and body should move and work with little effort.
It should also be fun! It should not feel like a chore or obligation.
Rachel says it’s important to build in time into our daily, weekly, and monthly schedules for do-nothing activities, and I agree. What do-nothing activities do you have in your wellbeing tool chest?
An area of focus for me last month was increasing the duration of my sleep by an hour each night – I promised to keep you posted. Well, I failed horribly! I did not increase my sleep, and in fact, I slept less, as my workaholic tendencies kicked into high gear. I will keep you posted on my progress through this monthly update post or in our Facebook Live Tarot Happy Hour chats. What’s your wellness promise to yourself for the month of April?
