Three of Pentacles - I Forgot What I Was Supposed To Remember


I believe human beings have an innate wisdom in their soul, but only need reminding of what they've forgot. This is what the Tarot does in many ways.

I drew this card yesterday. I thought I'd pass on posting it, as I wanted to update my other blog, http://catherinemeyersartist.blogspot.com 

So, I was ready to draw another card for today. Guess what? I drew the Three of Pentacles again. A card that was insisting in being in the lime light! No, that's not true. I am anthropomorphizing my cards, I know. Tarot cards do however prod, prompt and sometimes give us a push forward, to remind us stop our worrying, and get actively engaged in life as opposed to being a bystander. Action is always the best antidote to worry.

Drawing the Three of Pentacles the last two days is a reality check, as much as I might not want to be reminded. The message is, that I can't wait for motivation or inspiration. I simply need to start and the rest will follow.

It is so had to just start when you are not inspired. But I see beginning often as a warming up for the real work. Making some marks, putting some paint on the canvas which you will know, wont; be visible in the end, Just play and have fun and before you know it, you are WORKING!!!

Definitely Ellen,
So many of us get caught up in the final output a loose site of the process and how it works.
I'm ok now and back on track. I have a show coming up next week, was getting my underwear in a bit of a knot, putting way too much pressure on myself. I can stand it when I do this. It looses the fun/pleasure factor. The most important part of creativity!
