Example Reading: Career and Love
This reading is an example of a reading where seemingly big questions had relatively short answers.
This reading was originally published on a public forum by an anonymous user with no expectation of privacy. However, identifying information has still been omitted here.
The past 3 or 4 years have been especially challenging for me in pretty much all areas of my life. For the most part, I've been able to hold it together, believing that my situation will eventually turn around, but sometimes I lose hope. Lately, I've been wondering if maybe I'm not walking in my purpose. My career isn't bringing me the joy I used to feel. I ended a toxic relationship almost 2 years ago and I battle between believing that I WILL connect with my true love match one day and thinking that maybe he doesn't exist after all. Let me know if you need any info from me before doing the reading. Thanks in advance!
Prior to my response, another poster gave a one-card oracle card reading regarding family changes. I've noticed that my readings tend to omit information that's already been provided by someone else, and that was apparent in my response:
Hi there! Happy Sunday! Here's what I'm getting on this for you:
Your guides recognize that you're at a point of low energy at the moment. Although the difficulties of the last few years were necessary for your personal growth, you're just sort of exhausted by all of it at the moment. This is normal, and an indication that you're moving out of one phase of your life and into another, new phase.
The previous phase has been meant to teach you about yourself and your boundaries, what you want and what you're willing to do or put up with to get it. You're learning what it means to love yourself and go after what you really want in life.
You either have recently or will soon feel new energy and a draw toward new goals. To piggyback on what the previous poster said, much of your attention will be on your family.
About your life purpose, what I'm getting about that is what you wanted to do this lifetime was FEEL. You wanted to feel more deeply than you had before, to go very deep into both joy and pain. You're here to push your boundaries, to learn to become comfortable with a greater level of emotional intensity than you've ever done before. The purpose of this is to help in your growth and development as a soul. Your soul wishes to help those who are in great emotional turmoil, and in order to do that, it is necessary to develop some understanding of what that feels like. Therefore, you've chosen a sensitive body this time, and a life filled with emotional challenges. You've risen to all of those challenges so far, and are ready for more.
Your career isn't feeling fulfilling right now primarily because of your recent exhaustion. As you recover, the way forward will become clear. What I'm seeing is a slight change, but not a wholesale change of career or anything like that. More like a slight alteration of job focus or duties, at most. Your mind is well-suited to what you're doing, and based on what I'm seeing in the short- to medium-term, it's a good place for you to be.
Your love life has been on hold too while you deal with this exhaustion. Right now, you cannot give what would be needed for the type of relationship you wish to be in. Give it time; you will begin to feel better soon. Once you are feeling more yourself again, a real connection with someone new can be made. You are feeling hopeless, but for no reason. It just needs a bit of time.
Please let me know if you have any follow-up questions about this.
Thank you Amaya – this is so on point! FEEL is the keyword! I now realize that my feelings are intense, although I purposely subdued it to those around me. Lately, I've been making it a point to be more open and honest about my feelings – whether I'm happy, nervous, upset, etc. And I've been getting back to expressing those feelings on paper or canvas through my art. Graphic design is my primary career, but drawing was my first love and I want to get back into that space and how it made me feel while creating. I am ready to feel something real, preferably JOY over pain :)
