Positive Affirmation

I am aware of what is going on around me

Theme of the Day

Someone is being deceptive or stealing away with something that’s important to you

Welcome to Day 47 of the challenge.  If you’re jumping in right now, be sure to check out the Welcome to the Triple Dog Dare to get started.  The previous days are listed at the bottom of each post with a hyperlink.

Seven of Swords is pretty straightforward in its meaning: someone is being dishonest with you or stealing something from you.

Seven of Swords

Rider-Waite Tarot by U.S. Games Incorporated

A client came to me in tears because she was trying to figure out why she wasn’t moving up in her position.  She was an esteemed musician and struggled to really make a name for herself.  My knowledge in the music industry is very limited.  I threw down the cards to see what they had to say.

The Seven of Swords appeared amongst some other cards, then spirit stepped forth.  It’s amazing when that happens as this acts as a double affirmation as to what is being revealed.

The message spirit had for her was: there’s someone within the orchestra that is stealing your glory and has gone to great lengths to smear your name as well as character.  This person has made it a point to remain in the good graces of the conductor and is very jealous of your music ability.

Insight into a character comes from listening intently to the spoken word.  The physical person, their charisma, charm and dramatic flair is more often used to persuade audiences, as they use these stealth tools of disguise and deception. – Maximillian Degenerez

The client knew what was going on in the depths of her heart but didn’t want to face the truth.  However, she knew that this particular person has alway been jealous of her and she didn’t know what to do about it.

We explored the suggestions the cards revealed to us and created a strong game plan for her to recover her power and to stop the jealous person from stealing her spotlight going forward.

Here’s one of my favorite songs about Deception by the Cruxshadows:

You have TWO Triple Dog Dare Challenges today.  Read the challenges and close your eyes to connect with what the challenge is asking of you.  Allow yourself to walk through the experience and be sure to capture as much as you can with your words as well as intent.

Triple Dog Dare Challenge #1: Step back and see what is taking time away from you in a negative way.  Is it a joint venture?  Is it a partnership?  Is it a client?  Once you have identified the source, find a solution to stop the time suck.

Triple Dog Dare Challenge #2: Sometimes YOU are the person who is being deceptive because making the sale is important or landing a big client or making your competition look bad is important.  It’s hard to admit this, but it’s super important to do this because your actions affect those around you.

Examine the reasons why you feel that taking this low vibration approach makes sense to you at the moment.  Once you have found the reasons why, take some time to ask your spirit to show you a different approach, one that allows you to vibrate at a higher frequency.

Once you’ve completed your Triple Dog Dare Challenge, celebrate that!  I invite you to step out of your comfort  zone and share with us in the comments below so we can celebrate with you.
