The Magician is the card we turn to next.  It’s been bothering me that I haven’t written for a couple of weeks and today as I wait for one daughter to wake up and the other to come home from a sleep over, I decided it was time to resume my journey.

The magicianImagine my surprise when delving into various books to get some understanding of The Magician, I suddenly realised the reason for the delay in proceeding!  As sure as eggs is eggs, I wasn’t meant to write anything until now …. now that I have even more understanding of what’s happening around me.

The Magician card as you can see illustrated here has each of the minor arcana suites at his disposal, he can create what he will.  He is standing in a fruitful picture of gold and flowers – bountiful.  This is a time for those who are about to be rewarded for the expertise and effort they have put into specialised training.  Never could this be more true for me.  For 6 years I have been working to get to where I am, practising, honing my skills, learning new ones and all the time knowing that the day would come when I could trust that the work I do is not by me alone!  By that I mean to fully accept that when I am in my flow of working with clients I am merely the conduit through which their change can happen.

It’s like magic!  The Magician calls upon all sorts of skills – learning, adaptability, communication, observation, callibration, self confidence and willingness to take action towards an outcome.

As you know from my first writing of The Fool I received some awesome news that day and the opportunity is getting bigger and bigger day by day.  This weekend I was told of an even bigger leap for this project which will be announced tomorrow.   The guys behind it are true Magicians with a vision and belief which will improve the lives of so many – take a look at Talking2Minds to see what I mean.  The charity has been set up to eradicate the symptoms of PTSD for service personnnel and their families.

In addition to that, I’ve been working with Tom Evans, The Bookwright and have now got two books in the pipeline, one is a self help book and the other a spiritual book – both addressing relationships and taken from different starting points.

The Magician is providing me with the ability to teach what I have learned, and encouraging me to learn more – both of which I do gladly.   If I stop learning and adding to my skill set, I feel as though I’m drying up, I feel as I’m not feeding an essential part of me.  If I don’t teach what I already know then my knowledge and expertise is wasted, it’s almost as if the universe is saying what’s the point in giving you more when you aren’t sharing what you already have.   It’s time for me therefore to step up and be more accessible to a wider audience.
