To begin, just think of a problem you have right at the moment (and if you don't have any problems then think of something you'd like to improve in your life). Choose a problem that you'd like to clear, if not entirely then at least the next layer of it. Think about this problem

Card 1 - The Problem
The first card represents the Psychological dynamic which is causing the problem. Look at this hidden or undrlying issue. Take your time, see if this could possibly be true for you. If you can't see it then look at those around.
Hidden Self (From Victim Suite)

KEY CONCEPTS:

A subconscious personality, often with a different goal than our conscious mind

In our mind we have hundreds of personalities, each one having its own goal, with its own thought-system and logic, and each one thinking that happiness is in a different direction. The Hidden Self represents a subconscious part of the mind which is moving in a different direction from the one in which our conscious mind is headed. It is a part of the mind which, in most ways, is thinking to be helpful to the general self, but whose strategy is ineffective and often destructive.

Using the card
If you have picked this card, it is important for you to find your Hidden Self, learn what its purpose is and help it to be more effective. Receiving this card means you are being asked to discover and integrate a part of you which is very different from what you know in your conscious mind. It is common to find three-year-old selves hidden inside us who actually have very big purposes (or tasks) which they are particularly ineffective at accomplishing. There may be selves which have been passed down through the family, generation after generation (see card 17, Ancestral Problem).

To find your Hidden Self, imagine that your conscious mind is taking a break, and just relax. Ask yourself the name of this hidden personality and see what pops in. Some use intuition, or meditation to find their Hidden Self. Others are most effective using their dreams to pull it to the surface. One way to do this is to program your mind before going to sleep and ask your Hidden Self to become visible to you. Simply choose that it will be demonstrated to you in a dream.

Whatever your method, once you tune into it, ask how old it is and how long it has been with you. Just trust the intuition or guesses that come to you. As you get to know your Hidden Self, ask what its purpose is and do not be afraid to engage it in a ‘conversation’ or to question its motives. The best way to help a Hidden Self to succeed is to have it integrate with your general personality. Just feel it melting in and joining your general conscious mind, so that the two energies become one, focused on the same general goal. This way, your Hidden Self and its contribution will be accomplished in truth once it has joined and is working with you. Instead of having two different goals, your Hidden Self’s true goal is integrated with yours and you become more expanded and effective.

To demonstrate this point:

  • Before integration, ask your Hidden Self, ‘If I keep doing this, how will things be in three months? ... in six months?... in a year?’
Typically things will have become worse, sometimes much worse.
  • Then ask your Hidden Self to melt into you. See how effective things are in three months, six months and in a year. In every instance, there will be greater success.

In some circumstances you will find a Hidden Self whose purported purpose is self-destruction. This simply means that the Hidden Self is not fully in touch with its real purpose and its strategy for accomplishing this real purpose is misdirected. If this occurs, just keep asking the Hidden Self about its true purpose until you get down to the underlying reason - this might be self-protection, ending the pain, keeping the Hidden Self from doing or receiving harm, etc. When this is the core purpose, the strategy of self-destruction has been misapplied, exaggerated and is uncalled for.

The integration of the Hidden Self with the conscious identity leads to a reintegration of all of the energy in a positive way, a more effective achievement of true purpose, an ending of conflicts and dilemmas and a vaccination against future negative experiences such as the one the Hidden Self has brought about.

Forgiveness (From Healing Suite)

KEY CONCEPTS:

Resolving hidden guilt in oneself; apologizing for mistaken blame; reconnecting; true understanding; giving forth

This is another core healing principle: forgiveness is really self-forgiveness. If the world is simply a reflection of your own mind, if all blame and judgment are projections of your own guilt and self-attack, then forgiveness of others releases both the others and the subconscious guilt within you. Guilt is really a form of arrogance which makes life all about oneself, rather than just learning the lesson, correcting the mistake and moving on. Forgiveness puts things in perspective and brings back innocence. It returns life to ease, flow and confidence.

Forgiveness is not a form of winning the competition while another fails. Nor is it about condescension or superiority. It is not designing to grant the other mercy - which is really superiority (hidden judgment and overcompensation for guilt and feelings of inadequacy) and competition (distraction from success and fear of the next step). We fear forgiveness because we feel that we would be locked into a position of sacrifice or wounding. We feel that we are justified in our grievance or anger and that it would be stupid to give this up. Yet grievances are never about what someone else has done but in fact are about what we have not forgiven ourselves for. We are actually holding our past against them. No situation can fail unless we fail to give something. Forgiveness is simply reconnection. It is an apology for blaming others for ‘crimes’ you thought that you had committed. Forgiveness is the realization that it was all just a mistake, and true understanding and a new healed situation appear. In forgiveness you finally get to give what was not given in the past. This heals you and the one being judged.

One of the core dynamics of any problem is broken bonding, or separation. Guilt is the superglue of life which keeps us stuck in painful patterns and situations, while forgiveness is the solvent which releases us not only from our guilt, but also from our withdrawal, unworthiness and sacrifice, and from the feelings of deadness, exhaustion, difficulty, being stuck, valuelessness and overcompensation. As we are released from that which separates us, we are reconnected and the problem is solved.

Using the card
If you receive this card today, understand that it is important to motivate yourself to forgive, because what you don’t forgive in any one person, you don’t forgive in everyone, including yourself. This means that, without forgiveness, you will create distance - even with those you love the most. The power to change your situation is in your hands. Forgiveness is a choice which creates a new giving forth and a new receiving. Release your grievances so the hidden self-attack and lack of freedom will be released. If done by oneself, forgiveness is a difficult lesson, and self-forgiveness can be even harder. But you can ask your Higher Mind for help in accomplishing the forgiveness.

While there are many beautiful forgiveness exercises, you could just as easily let it be done by grace. Realize that if you are blaming yourself or others the truth is being blurred. Choose the truth. Ask to know it. Ask for the forgiveness to occur. This may happen layer by layer, or it may occur all at once. In other words, you can ask for a miracle and the whole situation can be seen in a new light.
