Today, the King of Pentacles reversed tells us to know that we have the power to create the life we want. We can manifest our goals by mastering the earth realm within ourselves first.
Are you starting your own business or thinking about it? Get in the mindset that you are a successful business owner. Are you looking to move up in your career or improve your skills? Align your inner thoughts around having the position or skill level that you want to achieve.
If any fears or objections come up when you think of your potential for success, recognize those objections as blocks to manifesting your success in the physical world.
Your inner objections are represented here as the 5 of Wands reversed. See the five people in conflict as they try to accomplish one goal in this card? You’re in conflict with yourself. Your outer activities don’t match your inner thoughts when you strive for success. You’re telling yourself (even subconsciously) that you can’t succeed.
The King of Swords tells us to release our focus on outer communication today in order to focus on releasing inner blocks. Express your goals outwardly to the Universe only after you’ve aligned with your inner self.
Look inward, know that you are the CEO of your life and that you can be successful in creating the life you want. Pay attention to objections that come up when you tell yourself you can succeed, then release those objections and counter them with helpful thoughts.
I certainly didn’t come up with this technique, as people have been doing this since ancient times and teachers continue to share this method. I have learned this from many teachers over the years, and I’m certainly not perfect at it! I just continue to try, I get better over time, and I share what I learn hoping to help others along the way.
One thing I’ve realized by going through the mindset process is it’s important to counter with the right affirmations. For example, I can tell myself that I have a successful business, but if I don’t really feel that way every time I tell myself that then I’m saying the wrong affirmation.
If I tell myself that I have a successful business, I need to feel into that thought and see what comes up. Maybe my hope for success is creating financial independence through my business, but thoughts come up that I shouldn’t make money on my spiritual gifts.
If that happens, after clearing the fear, an effective affirmation might be “It’s OK to make money from my spiritual gifts. If I still have resistance, I can dig deeper. What makes it OK? Well, an exchange of energy is necessary so that I don’t feel depleted only giving and not receiving in return. So now, maybe the most effective affirmation is “making money on my spiritual gifts provides a necessary exchange of energy” or “making money on my spiritual gifts allows me to continue helping others.”
These affirmations will help eliminate the block, whereas continuing with the wrong affirmation might just make my block and fears pop up even more in my mind and out to the Universe. Once my inner mind is in alignment, I’m confident that I’m communicating to the Universe as the clear-minded King of Swords.
This is what works for me. What works best for you when clearing mental and emotional blocks to your success? I’d love to hear your thoughts and to learn from your experiences, as well!
Love and blessings! ?
