Elephants, Magicians + Me

Do you? Do you tell yourself you can’t? Do you reject new things so hard you get whiplash from the sudden stops?

RoyalThai_1MagicianToday’s card is from a Tarot deck that celebrates the culture of another country. Here is the Royal Thai’s Magician.

Obviously this is Ganesh, a Hindu Deity. I have a small statue of Him in my bathroom. I talk to Him about getting help breaking through obstacles. Normally the obstacles is my own damned self. I have a serious problem with getting in my own way.

Do you? Do you tell yourself you can’t? Do you reject new things so hard you get whiplash from the sudden stops?

Sigh. Yeah. Me too.

For instance, my honey was telling me about this Bountiful Baskets thing that he tried. How he got all this food for not very much money. And did I want him to do it when he was in town the next time.


That was the first thing out of my mouth. No, it’s too much food. No, it will go to waste. No. No. No.

Then I said, “I’m being resistant again.” He agreed. LOL

So I will try it.

The Magician is the card of using the tools you have to make things happen. It’s about having what you need and knowing how to use it.

This is a nice addition to the Magicians of the world with the “As above, So below” hands on both sides. With Him sitting in the enlightened lotus position, I have to remember that the Magician’s greatest tool is knowing himself.

And being able to get out of his own way.

To Ganesh the Magician, I say, “Today I will get out of my own way. I will say yes to new things. I will embrace change. I will be honest with myself and admit that change is scary. I will do it anyway. I am a child of Universe. I celebrate my connections to the All. Loved and loving, I love you. Seek joy, y’all. Pass it on.”

Your journal prompt today is, “How do I limit myself? How can I open up my thoughts to allow more in?”

  1. A beautiful thought: the main tool is tot know yourself. Perhaps that is the most difficult; knowing who we really are, inside and out. Accepting every part of our self; even our shadow. 🙂
