About: Tarot Affirmations are positive statements using the Tarot, to center ourselves while energizing our Mojo! My goal is to help invigorate higher vibrations with creative visualization for self-awareness, while enhancing one's perspective, confidence, and productivity. Becoming part of the imagery is a necessity as it allows all senses to be encountered. Proclaiming and vocalizing your personal statement out-loud 'seals your agreement' with the Universe. Disciplined practitioners sense a significant change within seventy-two hours of repeating the oath. Inexperienced users must understand that it can take a little longer until you find your own rhythm to encounter the magic of will and assertion.

Meditation: Sit for a few minutes alone, with eyes closed and a goal to relax. Calm all thoughts and emotions until you are aware of the quietness that surrounds you. With slow and deep breaths, feel yourself float into this calm energy, feeling your body and mind also adjusting to this quietness. All the noise disappears and you feel at peace. Pay attention to the soundless spirit, as you cleanse and exist with silence.

Visualization: Today's card image can assist you in this meditative affirmation. To make this simple, have a large basket of laundry available as a prop. Study the picture and notice how the individual has a long way to go before he can reach his resting spot in the far distance. He awkwardly carries a large bundle as a companion for his journey. He doesn't feel it's pressure, as he concentrates solely on his path and his footwork. You can begin by standing, and walking in place. As you stroll along your imaginary path, think about a specific issue that you have been struggling over. What are dealing with, and how does it affect you and your life? What would you eventually like to accomplish from this situation, once you get through the chaos of tough decisions? What genuine action have you contributed, in order to create a favorable solution? Think about this for a minute or two as you continue to walk. When you have an answer, verbalize it out-loud into the following sentence: "I want to change/remove the _____ , so that I can have _____ , for the purpose of _____. This is your intention that will fuel your drive to achieve your goal. Visualize your dream up ahead. It is still very faraway, but is not unreachable, should you decide to travel its distance and rocky voyage. The choice is yours. What you need to determine, is how bad do you want this, and what are you willing to do to get it?

Grasp the heavy basket and hold it tightly up against you. This is the weight that you choose to carry with you each and every day. Despite the stress that you put on yourself, you aren't letting go, nor are you giving up. You insist on being in-control, which can cause limitations, but only from the perspective of where you stand. Choices and potential feel restricted as you carefully look down to watch your steps, rather than looking up for opportunities ahead. You carry much with you. Your walk through life could be so much easier if you would just drop this load... but it seem to be very meaningful, as it holds much power and importance to you. The burden that you bear is choice.

You may pace yourself a little faster as you walk, clutching the basket tighter. You are giving yourself permission to be hard on yourself, and you have chosen this tough road for a reason. You push yourself to the limit, and you refuse to stop for excuses or rest. No pain, no gain. Although you may feel like you are running on empty, you are reliable and taking responsibility for your future. You are proving that you are strong and have what it takes to succeed. Go ahead and smile, you've earned it. You want this bad enough, and you will find yourself empowered with great inner strength to walk through fire for it. No one understands the pressure that you put on yourself, nor will you ever let them see you sweat. You tolerate the pain, because you represent the backbone of true intention and purpose. When the deadline is near, when you're close to the finish-line, and when the odds are against you - is when your true super-power and magic comes alive!

The Affirm: While being one with yourself, announce your trusted affirmation:

I fight for my right to strive.
I know what I am made of.
I am a vision of success.
I trust my journey.

I found this quote and thought it was quite appropriate.
The individual activity of one man with backbone will do more than a thousand men with a mere wishbone. ~William Boetcker
