[Updated July 2021. Essay on Tarot: VII The Chariot]
∆ ▲ ∆
There is a bumper sticker out there that I really enjoy. I haven’t seen it in a while, but it goes like this:
“Get in. Sit down. Shut up. And hold on.”
In today’s reading, The Chariot showed up as the guidance card.
[By the way, before I started the reading, I received a new idea about that position. I now think of the guidance card as Recommended Focus.]
Whenever the Chariot shows up in client readings, I often share the sentiment above with my client. When I focused on the Chariot today, It came out this way:
The stream will take me where I want to go.
There are two significant parts to this statement, which are worth focusing on:
1 – The stream will take me. I don’t have to walk, run, drive, or look for a way there. All I need do is get in, sit down, shut up, and hold on.
2 – The stream will take me to the places I want to be. It is really good to remind myself this. The stream will take me to all of the places I want to be! The stream will bring me to and through the experiences I desire, the ones I specifically carved out of the contrast I have experience up to now.
- Get in: Allow. Let the Universe drive.
- Sit down: Relax / Trust. It’s all gonna work out.
- Shut up: Stop the resistant talk; calm the resistant thought; don’t talk yourself out it. Don’t fret.
- Hold on: Be Patient / Anticipate. Enjoy the ride en route to a place you want to visit.
If you’re not sure what “the stream” is, you can substitute the word ‘time’. They are not the same thing, but they are congruent. Another word you can use is ‘life’, but not simply life as defined biologically; life goes well beyond that.
Abraham reminds us often: you will experience all that you desire. The question is: do you want it now (or soon), or do you want it after you die.
The Chariot will take you there, but there is still a journey from where you are to where you want to be. Learn to enjoy the ride.
I’ve learned to utilize the Chariot more and I’ve had some great rides and traveled through some beautiful places. Problem is, I too often think I’ve arrived and end up jumping off too early. Or I grab the reins, thinking that I know what I’m doing.
Furthermore, if you don’t shut up AND hold on, the chariot could toss you off. Been there…done that. But never worry. Like Uber, there’s another one right around the corner. Just remember that the rules are always the same: You gotta get in, you gotta sit in the back, you gotta keep the noise down, and you better fasten your seat-belt.
