Today’s card is from a deck I am not familiar with. I have this image from another project. But the idea it represents really works for the Fool.
He slides down on one ribbon but there are so many other choices he could choose. The word here is Emanation. There are several definitions of this word. I think that the one that is best here is this one:
: the origination of the world by a series of hierarchically descending radiations from the Godhead through intermediate stages to matter.:
And out of that definition the one word that speaks to me the most is “series”.
[Tweet “Because what is life if it is not a series of ups, downs and in-betweens?”]
And what is life if we don’t live it?
One of the things I’m working on right now is my word for the year. Last year was GALVANIZE. I think it was a perfect choice. So now I’m on the hunt for this year’s word. Last year I came to the word by letting go of all my preconceived notions of what would be the “right” word. Once I tossed that out, I found GALVANIZE and it resonated.
I know that I want it to be a verb. I know that I want it to resonate. Those are the only two requirements.
It’s part of the workbook I keep hawking (grins at Dolphyngyrl). I’ve done the releasing. Now I’m moving into the setting up for next year.
Do you choose a word for the year? Do you have any requirements for that word? I’d love to hear about your process.
Remember that I’m doing three card readings for anyone who purchases this downloadable workbook (any version–personal, business or combo). Yes, you can give your reading away as a gift if you like. This offer is good through 1/30/2014. Yes, there’s a contest again this year. So that’s part of my push.
But really? The real push is because I honestly believe in this process. It worked for me.
Back to you. What’s your word if you have one?
