The concept of manifestation bounces around in New Age circles so much that I barely notice it anymore.
I became aware of the idea of manifestation – or at least the language around it – when I was first starting out on my spiritual journey and was deep into astrology. There were a handful of astrologers whose work I followed religiously, and during certain moon phases or important transits they’d send out missives encouraging us to use these energies to “manifest” our goals.
I’m not opposed to spellwork or vision boards. I love burning intention candles and writing my own spells.
But I see these things as icing on the cake to the true magic that makes dreams manifest.
What is that magic?
Acting upon a dream will give you the best odds of it becoming a reality.
Knowing where you want to go is the first step: What is that you are aiming for?
If you can be clear on that – whether it be a new job, an artistic career, new love, or whatever else you are hoping for – then you have a goal to anchor your efforts into.
Once you know where you’re headed, you can start to work out the steps you need to take in order to get there.
Do you have to sign up for a course or a training to get to where you want to go?
Do you need to start working on your art more often, or learn how to promote yourself?
Do you need to change your routines, work on yourself, or set more time aside to work on your plans?
Of course, there are no guaranteed paths to our dreams. But you will better your odds if you take the right steps along the way.
Taking relevant, consistent action towards your dreams will bring you closer to the reality you’re looking for.
Spells and visualizations and mantras are great add-ons: If you want to ritualize your intentions, by all means go for it. But if you are not aligning your real-life actions with your goals, you can’t expect to get different results.
That’s why when clients ask, “How can I manifest X, Y, or Z?” I look for practical, tangible steps they can implement after our reading together.
That way they have something specific to work towards, rather than feeling like their goals are floating nebulously off in the ether.
And that’s what I teach in my Zodiac Tarot workshop: We use the classic Zodiac Tarot spread to build real-life strategies around goals and intentions for the year to come.
This gives you, the tarot reader, a new tool in your tarot toolbox to better help your querents. But it’s also a great approach to reading for yourself – especially if you love goal-oriented readings as much as I do.
The Zodiac Tarot workshop is only available until January 4, 2024. Grab it while it’s available.
Until next time,
