In my life there have been times when I have wished for change. And there have been times when I wished for things to slow down or remain the same. As I look over my life, I have come to realize that wishes can come true powered by intention. When I wished, I was thinking and asking, "Please, make this happen." I thought I turned things over to the Universe. Upon closer review, I saw that I did not back up those thoughts and wishes with intention. It is like the old saying, "Pray, but wear work boots!" Setting an intention is setting a goal with measurable steps and actions toward reaching that goal.
A few years ago, I wanted to take my tarot business to a more professional level. That goal led me to check out the Tarot Association.net. I joined and attended a conference. That led to enrolling in the Association's Professional Development Program taught by Jenna Matlin. WOW! That 6 months moved me through developing my first business plan EVER. That course included setting my vision, my Code of Ethics, and learning to use the internet and other social media to my benefit. That led to some decision making that included leaving some aspects of my business being dropped, a move to another city and state, and a stronger confidence in my skills and worth.
Since completing the course, my business has increased three fold. I now am an established reader in a wonderful metaphysical store. My readings outside my work at the store have increased. I have expanded reading tarot to also include Lenormand, Oracle and Past Life readings. I started teaching courses in Reiki, Chakras and Crystals as well as a course in reading tarot. I have social media contacts with other tarot people around the globe. My confidence has grown so that decided to take the plunge and go on my first visit to Europe and check off Stonehenge from my bucket list. All from writing down an intention and following through step by step. I might add assisted by affirmations and lots of gratitude to the grace of the Universal Oneness! SO - - Ask with intention!!
