The Nine of Cups ~ Exploring Your Relationship with Happiness
Tarot Tuesday! The card for the week is the Nine of Cups, representing: Prosperity, emotional satiety, and wishes fulfilled. The Nine of Cups is one of the most positive cards of the deck; it is often referred to as the “wish card” because it speaks to fulfillment, happiness and the attainment of things desired. Whenever this card shows up in your life, it is a good omen, indicating that you will soon be rewarded for your hard work and past labors. Time to celebrate!
The Nine of Cups encourages you to explore your relationship with happiness. Happiness is often a state of mind, and in the highest sense, has little to do with outward circumstances. If you are currently not happy in your life, this is a time to dig deeper, and ask yourself “why”? Like joy, happiness sometimes needs to be cultivated.
What I have found to be an inspirational guide towards manifesting happiness, is Dr. Wayne Dyer’s book “Wishes Fulfilled: Mastering the Art of Manifesting”. Wayne Dyer believes that within us all is a divine creative force that has the ability to manifest our greatest desires. His book, which I have read over and over, speaks to cultivating and harnessing the imagination—the space of all and infinite potentials-- and practicing the art of Assuming: the feeling that all your wishes are being fulfilled—right now.
Happiness requires a steadfast refusal to allow any evidence of the outside world to distract you from your intentions. To take conscious control of your imagination and set your compass towards happiness. It is real, if you believe it is!
This week, may all your wishes be fulfilled!
