Independence (From Relationship Suite)

KEY CONCEPTS:

Fear of feeling, receiving or committing; compensation for old emotional slavery

Independence (an unhealed reaction to heartbreak and jealousy) is one of the three major roles. This role is a compensation for a painful place of heartbreak, jealousy, sacrifice or loss. The extent of our independence is also the extent to which we are afraid of intimacy and of being in the vulnerable position of receiving because it would bring up the old painful feelings. What we are attempting to do through this role is dissociate from painful feelings. Unfortunately, this cuts off the ability to feel at all, including the positive feelings and the potential of receiving. So, the extent of jour independence is the extent of both our heartbreak and sacrifice, which we have yet to heal.

At the heart of independence is a lack of connection and commitment to others. Independent people tend to be hard on both themselves and others. Part of the problem is their belief that ‘if the job is going to be done right, it has to be done by me’. The other part of the problem is that this leads to sacrifice, giving without receiving, which is a role in which we do not give our true self. Because independent people are afraid of intimacy and of receiving, they will attempt to run away from situations, either physically or emotionally, as a way of ‘solving’ the problem. This includes being stoic or dissociative.

Another key aspect to independence is the way one is subtly (or not so subtly) competitive in relationships. This may be a hidden competition, in which one becomes so good that no one else dares compete, or becomes so good that one develops a jaded ‘why-bother-competing-at-all’ attitude. Psychologically, competition is a form of avoidance which puts all the emphasis on winning. This can be very destructive in a relationship, since competition’s underlying objective is avoidance of (or distraction from) the real next step forward.

Using the card
If you get this card today, you are being asked to look at how your disconnection from yourself or others (your separation and/or competition) is creating the problem or issue you have at hand. Success here will mean a new level of joining with others. It will reflect your willingness not to be afraid of painful feelings and your own or others’ needs, and your willingness to feel even the hidden ones until they transform to positive feelings.

You are asked to repossess what you’ve been denying in yourself, and have been projecting on to others; to learn to accept your needs and feelings, so that you can also accept and respond to them in others without running away. Graduating from independence to true partnership and interdependence clears out feelings of dissociation, power struggle and deadness in relationships, and moves you into the richness of life which comes with intimacy and connection.

Trust (From Healing Suite)

KEY CONCEPTS:

Faith; confidence; putting the power of your mind toward a positive outcome

Your trust is your faith, your power of mind. Specifically, it is using the power of your mind for the best thing to occur. You mind will put itself toward something because it cannot be put toward nothing. That something may be negative, destructive or self-defeating—but your mind will invest itself one way or another. You can try to reduce your creativity and mind power to nothing, but you cannot succeed in stopping them. So, you may as well use the power of your mind to change and heal your life.

Trust is such sweet paradox that you can put your confidence into something negative, and it will turn out for the best. For example, let us say you instinctively feel someone is not trustworthy. Denial or naiveté would have you distrust your own feelings and pretend that everything is all right. Or, you could trust your feeling to tell you if anything may be amiss, but still consciously put your mind and trust into this person—seeing, feeling and knowing that everything will turn out at the highest level. This allows the situation to unfold positively even if it did not start out right. Just choose to put your trust into what you want to turn out— happiness, abundance, love and truth.

Trust heals control (which is our defense to try to protect ourselves), as well as the fear and heartbreak underneath it. It heals the need to take things into your own hands, to keep yourself and others from being hurt. Trust heals the conflicted mind which wants tow different things, and so is afraid to move forward for fear that one of its halves will lose.

Using the card
Trust restores balance and confidence. Where there is trust there is success. Today consciously begin to use the power of your mind to heal, evolve and transform situations around you. Learn to trust others. Trust the process as it unfolds, and you will not get stuck anywhere along the way.

Trust God, trust yourself and trust a significant other. All of this removes layers of defense, blockages and control. It allows for birth and the unfolding flow of life. Using your trust is the way out of this particular problem, for trust restores confidence and willingness.

Freedom (From Gift Suite)

KEY CONCEPTS:

Principle coming from commitment and truth, allowing for happiness and giving yourself fully

Freedom is actually a healing concept which is a derivative of both commitment and truth. To receive it as a gift card means that freedom will be gifted to you in someway, that something which has kept you in chains will fall away. Today, something is moving out of your way and out of your life to give you a new breathing space, an new clarity and a new openness. You have given of yourself, and now the gift of freedom is coming to you. This means the stress, worries, burdens, troubles, misery and sacrifice and all fall away. As you allow yourself freedom, it demonstrates your own self-love. As you give others freedom, it demonstrates your love for them.

Using the card
If you receive this card today, do not be deceived by any traps. Be careful not to confuse freedom with the rebellion of independence — that is actually dissociation ( not wanting to be dependent on anyone) and is only a guise for freedom. Something which has stopped you is about to fall away. Celebrate its departure. Freedom will bring about true connection and true responsiveness, rather than ‘burdensomeness’. It is available and being offered to you today, to let you know of life’s sweetness. True freedom allows you to give yourself fully, because in doing so, you feel both free and focused. If connection and communication are the true state of being, it follows that freedom allows us to see our relationships with both things and people in a way which gives everyone liberty. Your freedom allows for happiness… and happiness takes no prisoners.

Your trust is your faith, your power of mind. Specifically, it is using the power of your mind for the best thing to occur.
