We like to look at things in black and white polarities. Are you a GOOD Witch or a BAD Witch, they will often ask. This isn’t Wizard of Oz people!…. At a very young age we are taught to be a good little girl or boy, that we shouldn’t be bad. Bad of course is the standard that the person with more power or control has over you. In the beginning, it started with our parents regardless of how loving they were. Many times growing up I was told to “Stop being a Dreamer.” “It is unproductive,” they would tell me but wasn’t Albert Einstein a Dreamer? Can you imagine what the world would be like if he had stopped dreaming?
The same applies to the view on whether or not the glass is half empty or is it half full? In this simple process we attract either positive or negative energy to ourselves. Positive and negative not meaning good or bad just different but one can seem like life is handing us an easier route just on how we view things.
We need to stop and look what we are attracting into our lives and if it is not what we want or like, we need to change our stinking thinking.
Having a tarot reading can be similar, there are cards that seem scary and even bad but it is all in how you and the reader view the cards. Take for example the Death Card. What can be scarier then seeing a grim reaper? But what the card actually signifies is an ending, which in itself can be a welcomed blessing depending on the situation and regardless with every ending comes a new beginning and a chance to start anew.
