…do not let yourself get thrown off balance…~ Pamela Eakins
Yesterday, I got seriously triggered by people’s responses to Doreen Virtue’s A-Z list. Most people who comment have such firm opinions, yet they have no idea about what is actually going on… and when I try to tell them, they simply won’t listen. Most people still think that her conversion is genuine and most people choose to debate or make light of points on that list (playing right into her hands), rather than try to find out the truth or take a stand for the victims in all of this.
It was hugely upsetting for me to see this time and time again. At times it was also infuriating because I would post a link as evidence and to back up my claims that this has nothing to do with faith but that it is about financial fraud. People would comment back as if they hadn’t even read what I posted. Not shaming anyone in particular but I came across some right ignorant bastards yesterday and there is nothing worse than an ignorant bastard with a strong opinion.
Anyhoo, I thought I’d ask the Tarot about this… The question I asked of the Tarot of the Spirit was ‘How can I avoid getting triggered by this?’ and the perfect answer came in the form of the Nine of Fire. Eakins writes:
you are attuned to the right frequency; you are seeing things correctly (…) your clear sight will lead to solid creation that will endure over time; as things change, do not let yourself be thrown off balance; stay focused on the details of living.
I literally could not have asked to receive better guidance that this. I simply need to trust that I have planted the right seeds and laid the foundation for the truth to emerge. I need to focus on getting on with my own life now and when I scoff at the ignorance of others, I need to remind myself that I was ignorant about all of this once too. It takes time…
The arc of the Universe is long but bends toward justice.
