Spiritual lifestyle advice and guidance for modern women from bestselling author Alice Grist.
As a card carrying libran I am often in a perpetual state of indecision. So more than most I understand the fog of confusion that can descend and render you stuck and impotent.
Perhaps that is why I have grown to love tarot so deeply. Because they offered guidance to my uncertainty, some light in my prevarications. For I have a habit of seeing potential in all things. So choosing between them, has, at times, been impossible. This has, frustratingly, been more about the small decision in my life, rather than the bigger ones (though those too). Whilst it is quite natural to get confused about big stuff (job decisions, buying a new house, having a / another kid...), when you are debating the merits of one dinner over another or whether to go for a run or not, and you are spending huge amounts of time on these petty issues, you know you have a state of confusion that needs addressing!
One thing tarot has taught me is that you don't always need to know. The pressure to make a decision or a choice, is a little bit of a myth. In fact, it plays into the idea that your brain knows anything of value. Sometimes just letting yourself off the decision hook, letting life play itself out, and concentrating on what arises, is all the answer you need! Indeed, even more powerfully, Tarot has taught me that I already know the answer. The very fact I have become confused is because I added in another, unnecessary, option. Which I fear is one of the problems of living in a consumer culture, bombarded by options, distracted away from what really matters as we choose the right product, option and moment.
Tarot tells it like it really is, beneath all that mess. It brings you back to what really matters. Often none of the things that you think matter, actually do. They are distractions to something a little more simple, a whole lot more soulful.
Happily my most indecisive times are behind me. I have learned, with the Tarot as guide, that I don't always need to know, and that perhaps, it's not always my choice anyway!
Yet, whenever indecision visits, I crack out my cards and allow them to remind me of who I really am beneath all that thinking!
