It isn’t the disappointments, nor the missed opportunity, the mistakes, failures, or the path not taken. Life happens in the journey, your bravery- you getting up every morning and trying again. Putting a smile on your face when everything hurts inside because you believe in you. It’s the JOY of accomplishment when you met your goal and celebrate it. Sadness happens, but it’s not your life, it’s your motivation. It’s easy to get discouraged when you’re told you can’t have your dream. Accept the challenge. Tarot doesn’t tell your future, it tells you where your path can potentially lead you if you will it so. Nothing is handed to you in this life- we must all work at it. Live your life, see your current blessings before you and find a way to make your dream your plan. Start living it!
We do it all the time. Invest time & energy into people, jobs, activities, & stuff that really don’t add value to our life. With everyone we interact with we give away a piece of ourselves & collect pieces from others. Our energy gets left on the books we read, the things we make, places we go, the people we upset or touch kindly, etc.
With family it’s a more delicate topic. We certainly can not choose our blood, but we can decide as we get older who we wish to make memories with & with whom we need to spend less time with.
I didn’t realize how reactive I was to others’ emotions & energies before. Everything just clicked. Everything made sense. There were some people I was naturally gravated to, they were always positive people & bubbly. With big smiles & good hearts. As I got older I realized how unbearable it was to be around the opposite. I feel it. Negativity & hate takes up sooo much energy, it changes you, it exhausts you. But at the same time the drama is like a bad drug. You hate to do it, you know it’s bad for you- but you can’t stop involving yourself in it because it’s all around us.
Empaths attract it all. We want to help those that are negative and drown in those that are positive. They both drain us. As humans, in general, we are attracted to negativity. It’s a mechanism we have to protect ourselves. Why do you think bad news travels fast? Why you feel good when you’re holding juicy gossip harmful to others? Why does it excite you? Why do you think the news focus on all bad stuff? Do your research, its not because the world is more dangerous than it was back when... It’s because we, as humans, are attuned to self preservation and we want to know the bad, the evil, the danger. The news stations gets paid for those who watch. All of this changes us forevermore- but for them it’s no matter- it’s just business & there’s science behind the pull to keep watching the train wreck.
My point: Pick up the pieces you’ve left behind that were wasted, where you can. You can do it by forgiving those that have wronged you. Asking forgiveness of those you’ve hurt. Begin to stop wasting your precious time on negativity and make every piece you give away & receive count.
Everyone wonders about my company name. Funny thing is, it just felt right. I’m 100% Puerto-Rican born. My name is Lisette, altho I love folks have already embraced my company and call me La Jibarita, it’s not the name my parents gave me. My god-daughter/niece inspired the name when she sent me a picture of her dressed in a ‘traditional’ Puerto Rican dress (ADD side-note: altho before Christopher Columbus arrived with the Spanish Taínos were all naked, lol. But of course ya can’t do show-&-tell at school like that! Lol!)
‘La Jibarita’ just seemed to ‘fit’ at the time. Jibaritos (Jibaros) were natives known as the mountain dwellers of P.R., they worked the land and found everything they needed to survive from it- from food to medicine. Puerto Rico has some of the most beautiful mountains. Altho I live in NY now, I looked at a hundred houses before my farmhouse called to me- found no where but, you guessed it, right up against a Catskill mountain ridge. Coincidence? Maybe, but I don’t believe in coincidences.
This gift I have hit me upside the head at 17 and I wasn’t ready for it then. It didn’t come back entirely until I moved here. After I was doing tarot & premonitions a while, I slowly started telling family & friends about my ability. One of those folks was my father. I didn’t know what he’d say because we have not ever been close and he always seemed like the stern military man, dealing with facts. I had confided all this to him and my feelings with a situation I was having premonitions on and he didn’t even hesitate with his support. It took me aback actually. I guess I expected a ‘ya right!’ or ‘get outta here’ response. There was only understanding and an immediate response of “I believe you.” He shared something I had never known before- he told my grandmother has this gift. She has lived her whole life in P.R. living off the Earth, just like los Jibaros. Sure, I knew of her and was raised by her- but I guess this isn’t something you openly share for fear of people thinking you’re crazy...
Giggles* ...And here goes her Grand-Daughter starting a business with the majority of my regular customers from social media. I’m probably conquering generations of fear by making whatever this gift is very public. Way back when folks burned folks to the stakes for even speaking of premonitions, they’d call you a bruja (witch). I know my intentions, and that’s only to help others. I can’t speak for my Abuela, but I have always felt this ‘voice’/feeling inside that guides me is from God and meant to be shared. I have to live my truth and follow through with God’s purpose for my life. Hell, I’ve never been ‘normal’- I guess that’s why it’s been so natural for me to accept this path for me.
Don’t hold back your shine because you fear what others will think. Do you!
No one likes to be told their health is not heading in the right direction. Most know already. There are two kind of folks- those that go to the hospital upon a tiny sign of any sniffle and there are those that avoid the doctor like they’re the plague until they think they’re dying. Lol... I’m the latter. No one really asks for me to read their cards about they’re own health but that of their child or a loved one. It’s been interesting. There’s a reason...
We’re scared. A lot of times our own intuition knows something is not right and that fear is real. Yes, we all know we’ll die, but we fear seeing it play out in an illness. When I read tarot a lot of people don’t have a particular question they just want to know what the cards wish to share. It’s usually a pleasant surprise to the Questioner and me, the Reader.
Almost always tarot & my empath psychic abilities will pick up on some aspect of someone’s health/well being. It could be their anxiety, or stress, or depression, joy ☺️ or intense love. As I’m still learning what all these different spidey senses mean it’s still cool to watch what I pick up on whether it be a misdiagnosis, a new baby, a depression not being properly addressed, or blood work to be checked again- it still shocks me.
Lately I’ve been focussing on my own health. I started ‘watching’ my weight again and have already lost 6 lbs on this program. You can’t care for others if you’re not at your best. Take care folks, live your life and enjoy it with good health!
