Unexpected Life Purpose Message
I purchased the Life Purpose Oracle Cards a while back--maybe a month ago? I can't remember exactly when it was I but I think it was June. Anyway. Not important so much.
This deck is interesting, but it is very specific and so I don't recommend you use it unless you are answering a question specifically about a purpose. It would be frustrating and annoying. Hehee.
Here is today's trio: Time to Decide, Children and Family
I admit this isn't quite what I was expecting, but maybe it makes more sense than I realize now.
The first card pulled was Time to Decide. That made sense on some level, too. If I'm going to pursue something I need to know what I am pursuing. So I pulled two cards representing a direction to pursue and I got 'Children' and 'Family'. But the weird thing is, I am trying to focus AWAY from these things. I've spent nearly 8 years as a stay-at-home mom (which I know pales in comparison to my mother who spent 30+), and my daughter is going off to school this fall and I'm nervous as hell, but anyway.
I feel like something needs to shift in terms of focus. I need to have heartfelt goals that will keep me interested in life. But...I don't want these goals to be hollow or determined by the wrong things. I want it to really mean something. And it needs to be on a budget because...well, I have no money.
And when it comes to working with children...it doesn't appeal to me. I hate to be rude, but I am not the person who enjoys teaching children or working in a day care or whatever else can involve groups of children. I found it hard and not particularly fun. I always express awe at people who work with groups of children. Children are like wild little forces of nature! I think that's how I knew I would never have more than one or two kids. I am better one on one or maybe a small group of adults.
The aspect of this reading that makes sense to me is about loving friends and family. I do feel that one of the most important thing about life is being able to love and uplift others when possible. This is something I am always trying to practice, but it's something that really takes a lifetime to work on and to do. Or perhaps what this trio is saying is that I will never have a normal 'job' and that nurturing others as a mother, friend or whatnot is my job? I don't even know.
SOO...what in the world do I do with this message? I am not sure yet. I will try to be open-minded about it, though.
