Tapping the Treasure of Your Intuition

The High Priestess from the Gilded Tarot

The High Priestess from the Gilded Tarot

The High Priestess has come up during these hot August days to invite you into your own cool inner sanctuary.  She’s all about being inward, and the gifts she brings are heightened intuition, new knowledge, understanding and ultimately… peace.  She wants you to learn something about yourself, and she’s asking you to be still, listen, and pay attention to the subtle magic and miracles that are sparkling all around you.  

It’s a great time to talk about tools to help you trust your inner knower.  The truth is we are all blessed with a sixth sense, and it’s available anytime.  If you’re already pretty aware of this, then The High Priestess is calling you into a quiet space to connect because there’s a message in your “inbox”.  However, if this is a new concept for you… she may be inviting you to learn something that will help you cultivate and strengthen your connection. 

The world we live in doesn’t really support the notion of intuition, and it definitely doesn’t encourage us to slow down and go inward.  We are very busy people struggling to balance what seems like a never-ending stream of worldly demands.  But guess what?  One of the best gifts and secrets that The High Priestess offers is this:  When you learn to work with and trust your intuition it makes everything you do in life easier.  It also makes for a more fun and interesting journey.

You may have a spiritual book of some kind calling to you or a workshop you’ve been thinking about taking.  Maybe you’ve been “trying” to start a meditation practice that hasn’t really taken off.  These are callings with pretty straightforward instructions, but what if you’re just not sure what this means for you?  She may be calling you to cultivate your intuition.  In this case I recommend using an oracle deck of cards.

Years ago my spiritual journey really evolved when I purchased a deck of angel cards and starting pulling one everyday.  Although I was very intuitive, sensitive, and empathic I had never really learned to acknowledge {let alone use} these skills.  In fact, everything I had learned for most of my life had taught me to disregard my intuition and put my faith in the external or “real” world.  This strategy was not working for me. 

I was going from one drama to the next, feeling every blow very deeply.  The first instructions I received for healing involved taking care of my physical body, but as soon as I had reclaimed some of my vitality I knew that I had to eliminate the drains on my spirit. I needed to rekindle my intuition, so I could navigate better in the future. 

The High Priestess called me into my inner sanctuary for a major drama detox and spirit cleanse, and my angel cards became the tools I used to get acquainted with my intuition.  These cards helped me learn the language of my spirit so I could communicate with it more easily.  Later I added more cards {including the Tarot} to my collection and my “vocabulary” grew because my conscious mind learned to interpret the symbols and information coming from my unconscious. 

All of our spirits are fluent in symbolism ~ that’s the language your intuition speaks.  It may come up for you as random words, images, sounds, colors, memories, feelings, or sensations in your body.  It’s unique for each person, but it is there if you start looking for it.  Finding a way to discern what these symbols mean for you is what is important.  Once you agree on a system with your spirit it will work with you. 

I knew nothing about tarot cards when I first began and had a lot of apprehension about them because of scary movies with scenes of gypsies making ominous predictions.  The first thing I learned about the cards was this:  A tarot card or oracle card is a piece of paper with pictures and numbers printed on it… nothing more.  It doesn’t have special powers.  The cards can’t do anything to you.  They simply use archetypal symbolism to help you learn about yourself and your relationship with the world around you.  You have the power, not a paper card.


If this resonates for you, all you have to do is choose a deck you love and draw a card everyday for guidance.   Just use the images to give you messages from your spirit for your highest and best good.  Keeping a journal is a great thing to do too because you can choose your card and then write down all the meanings it has for you.  Over time this practice can go from a learning exercise to a full blown conversation with your highest self and life truly does become magical.  When we let our inner wisdom guide us, we’re always on the best path, so check in and see where The High Priestess is guiding you.  There is amazing treasure waiting to be discovered within.  xo
