TRANSCRIPT:

Everybody, welcome to your reading this week. Last time we looked at the shadow that might be hidden from your view and is giving you trouble in your life. This time we’re going to look at which part of your shadow is ready to be released and integrated and how you can go about doing that. The shadow is not something that you can just simply go in and change, no matter which part of it it is. It’s kind of like fruit. It needs to come to a place of ripeness. And then you need to know which part is ready, which part is calling to you so that you can begin to welcome it in and start to clear the path so you can move forward. So you can grab a reading with me down below or learn more about what I’m up to. And I look forward to connecting with you again soon. Enjoy. Give yourself a moment to take a few deep breaths. Let these breaths help you settle down into this moment and into the sensations of your body and emotion.

You might bring a little bit of attention to your heart space, and let’s begin. Let’s look at how it is that you can begin to release and integrate your shadow. So I’m going to tune in with those of you that are most likely to watch this video. All right, so let’s take a look here. Our first card is going to describe the shadow that is ready to be released or integrated into your system. So let’s take a look at what we have here. So our first card explaining what it is that your shadow is, which shadow it is that is likely to be integrated into your system at this time is the King of pentacles. Now, when this is in a position like this and it’s describing something negative, the negative attributes of the King of Pentacles can be that there’s a sort of a baseline insecurity.

This can be something that feels like a bit of anxiousness, that’s always running in the background, not feeling safe, not feeling settled. This can have to do with our financial status, our health. It can have to do with how we’re doing in our career. Are we successful? Are we moving forward? So at a very deep level, there’s something that doesn’t feel safe, that doesn’t feel secure in your system. This can look like an anxious attachment style. It can look like somebody that is needing to control the situation. The big attribute on the negative side of the spectrum with the king of Pentacles is feeling like there’s a hyper control. “I need to be in control of this situation.” It can look like a kind of rigidity when there’s something at our base, at our sort of lower chakra level or our sort of basic sense of survival. When there’s something that’s harmed there, the need to be able to control our environment, our relationship, our circumstances can become very rigid. It becomes something that we’re constantly worried about. And when things start to fluctuate or change, we can get triggered and sort of pushed off of our balance. So this is the shadow that’s showing up right now that’s ready for you to bring some attention to, bring some love to, and begin to either release it, release the negative aspects, and integrate the parts that do feel settled, that do feel safe and relaxed.

So our next card will be about understanding how this particular shadow is affecting your life at this time. So how the shadow is affecting your life. Let’s take a look here. So we have our Lovers card showing up as the major place that this particular shadow of insecurity or not feeling grounded or safe is showing up. And this can mean a couple of different things. So it can speak directly to your personal relationships where you feel like there’s a general insecurity when it comes to your love life, when it comes to even friendships and partnerships, like a sense that things might change at any moment, they might get much worse. This can sometimes show up. If we think about what we saw with the King of Pentacles here, trying to control our relationship circumstances. This can look like I need to make sure that this person is always devoted to me or I’m afraid to get into a relationship because I’m afraid I might get hurt or it’ll shake my life up too much. So it’s bringing this element of rigidity or control into the relationship sphere. The other thing that this can be a sign of is that there’s a general insecurity around making decisions, being able to trust your instincts, being able to trust your heart. Even when you feel a strong call towards something, there might be something in you that goes, warning, warning, this could be bad. This could be no good. There’s a constant second guessing of things, and this can be in the relationship. This can also just be in life path in general. There’s an inability to trust the path and the river that life is taking you down.

So we’re already seeing a little bit how this particular shadow can affect your day by day life. So now we’re going to check out how it is that you can begin to release this particular shadow from your life, how you can release it or begin to integrate the shadow into your life. Make sure you guys can see everything here clearly. So how is it that we can begin to release this sort of fundamental insecurity or this rigidity that might be showing up? And you might have become more conscious of this particular attribute, which is how you know it’s ready to be seen, loved, and released. So the way that you can begin to release or integrate this shadow is showing up as our Seven of Swords. And again, this can mean a couple of different things, but the first and foremost element here is the places where you are lying to yourself or maybe fooling yourself, maybe even manipulating yourself or others.

This is a card about sneakiness, about using your sort of intellect and your intelligence to get one over. And this can be getting one over on people in your life, but it can also be getting one over on yourself. So what this is saying is it’s time for some serious looking and exploration of where am I not being truthful with myself? Where am I denying the truth of a situation in my life? Where am I sort of telling little lies to keep things safe, to keep things copacetic? And it’s time to start unpacking those. It’s time to begin a process of getting really honest with yourself and getting really honest with the people in your life. The other way that this can show up, because there is a positive side to the Seven of Swords, which is becoming strategic about the way that you are unpacking this particular injury, this particular shadow in your life, which means being willing to make a game plan about how it is that you’re going to move forward with this.
One of the great ways that you can do that is begin to name off the attributes that are related to this particular shadow. Write them down so that they’re somewhere where you can see them. And also begin to look at how is this impacting my day by day life?

Am I able to be completely transparent, open and honest in my relationships? Am I able to feel honest and truthful with myself and naming what that is? Bringing it out from the unconscious and into the light. And then finding a sort of strategic, regular way of you checking in with this part of yourself, bringing it close to you, reassuring yourself that you are loved, you are okay. And when there’s resistance to that, beginning to look at it, what are the belief systems that are surrounding some of these places where I’m avoiding or where maybe I’m not being completely honest with myself or others. So let’s take a look at what it is that you can expect as you begin to integrate the shadow. What are some of the powers that you’re going to start to feel?

What can you expect your life changing into as you integrate this portion of the shadow? So that’ll be our next card here, which is showing up as our lovely Page of Pentacles. So this is a sign that you can expect yourself to have more enjoyment and excitement around new projects, new possibilities. There’s a kind of engagement with life, a readiness to investigate new things, curiosity around new knowledge, new ideas. It’s very much the truth that when there’s something that is in our shadow, something that has gotten stuck there, an old injury, it takes a lot of processing energy to keep it in the shadows. We have to actually push things out of our conscious awareness in order to survive in some way, and that takes a lot of energy.

Well, as that energy starts to no longer be needed to keep this out of our awareness, it can go into many different places. It can go into our creative projects, it can go into our relationships. The other thing about the page of Pentacles that’s good to know in terms of where you’re headed is that it’s inviting you to be very practical about what it is that you’re doing in your life. You’re no longer going to be run by certain fears or need to hide things. There isn’t going to be all this energy invested in just trying to survive, just trying to be okay or making sure that the relationship stays. Your energy can go into practical items. You’re going to be able to make decisions in your life based on good information, based on what it is that you’re curious about and interested in. There’s a lot of positive energy here because this is a fresh energy.

The Page is young and youthful, engaged, committed, and practical. So this is a beautiful direction that you can see things starting to come. So I really want to invite you to spend some time with where are the places that I have some undercurrent or background anxieties or fears? Where are the places in my life that I get really rigid and feel like I have to protect myself or like there’s not going to be enough? And check out in the places where this is showing up in your relationships, your friendships, your lovers, your potential lovers, where are the places that you find yourself pulling back or gripping too tightly? And then of course, the great practice of honesty of really speaking your truth both to yourself and the people in your life because there’s a lot of good, fresh new energy that wants to come in if you’re willing to embrace this part of yourself that at one time or another needed to be orphaned. So thank you so much for tuning in with me. I hope this is helpful. You can always reach me and feel free to reach out at any time. Thank you so much. Take good care.

    Lieber Jonathan,
    Es war gerade unglaublich deiner Ziehung und Lesung der Tarotkarten zuzusehen und zu hören, was du über die Seite des Schattens und der Arbeit mit unserem Schatten mir erklären konntest. Deine Ziehung der Karten war exakt mein Problem, das ich schon sehr lange habe. Ein Trauma aus meiner Kindheit und Jugend. Durch deine Lesung weiß ich jetzt, das ich mich nicht getäuscht habe, das hier mein unbewusstes Problem lag und immer noch, liegt. Ich kann jetzt daran arbeiten indem ich mich selbst, besser reflektieren kann in diesem Bereich. Vielen Dank für deine Lesung und inspirierenden Gedanken. Alles Gute,
    Berthold
