"I am, I do, I have" Spread

Sometimes we can fall into the ego trap of feeling like we must have certain things, do certain things, in order to be what we want. But when you’re stuck in that mindset, you may often feel like nothing you do can actually achieve that end result, so you keep trying to acquire things, and you keep trying to do things, and you keep not being what you want. This spread can help you stop that vicious cycle once and for all. 

  1. I am enough of this
  2. I do enough of this
  3. I have enough of this

You can also focus this spread onto specific areas. For example, you can angle it towards your tarot practice.

  1. 9 of Swords - I am thoughtful enough. (I spend plenty of time examining and thinking about situations from multiple angles; this is a positive look at a card that can represent obsession & anxiety.) Alternatively, I am very aware of different issues, unique thoughts, and complex problems.
  2. The Hierophant - I do enough counseling and teaching, both receiving and giving.
  3. 9 of Pentacles - I have enough knowledge and experience.


Over the next two weeks (until July 20th), I will be trying out something I call Cards for a Cause. Make a paypal donation directly to the charity or non-profit of your choice, send a screencap of your paypal confirmation screen or your paypal receipt (don’t forget to edit out any personal information) to broomstraws (at) gmail (dot) com, and get a confidential Tarot reading of your choice. 

Any size donation. Any size spread. You can bring me your spread or just bring me your questions. I will do any reading for any person who sends me proof of a donation to a charity. It’s that easy. If you’re stumped on what to pick, try the National Alliance to End Veteran Suicide, which promotes awareness of the struggles that face US veterans, supports their families, provides resources for veterans, and leads community projects the benefit veterans.

Remember, you are not making a donation to me. I don’t have a Paypal link anywhere on my blog. You’re making a donation to the non-profit of your choice. Any non-profit. Any donation. Any reading. Just send me a screencap of your confirmation or receipt. 


So here’s what I tell my clients when the Magician shows up in a reading:

It is the first universal law that Energy Follows Thought.  So…

Change your consciousness.  Change your reality.  Visualize what you want, feel your way to it, and watch what happens.  Plus, actively work every day on taking the necessary steps to create whatever it is you want in this world.  You have to engage as well.  You want to win the lottery?  You have to buy the ticket.  In other words, it’s all fine and good to meditate and visualize, but you have to get in the game, too.

Own your power.  Act with conscious awareness and laser beam concentration.  Put yourself out there.  Know who you are, believe in yourself, and take action. Time to focus.  Time to act with extreme prejudice on your own behalf.  Time to get rid of any unnecessary distractions and get to work on manifesting your dreams.

But don’t forget your connection to Source.  Ever.  When the chips are down and it’s feeling like an uphill struggle at times to get to where you want to go, when if feels like the people in your life aren’t very supportive, or that events seem to be conspiring to thwart your efforts, remember and maintain your connection to the Divine, the eternal wellspring of ALL THAT IS.

Spirit has your back.  Spiritual power is true power.



Constantine’s Card Tips

Do court cards stump you? Play a matching game with them. Match each court card to someone in your life, a character in a book or movie, or a celebrity - and explain why it fits. This is a great way to build new connections with your cards by associating them with people you know, interact with, or understand.

I’ve gotten much better at reading court cards but they still throw me sometimes, so I’m definitely gonna try this!!

Day 29 of the #30daytarotpic challenge, fanned out card backs is the theme. I think card backs should be interesting since they’re what you see as you shuffle and lay out a spread, they should create a sense of introduction and welcoming to the reading. These are the three card backs that I designed for my four decks. The Well Worn Path and The Hidden Path decks have a magical door with a tree on it to begin your journey. Voice of the Trees has the Fionns Window from the Book of Ballymote surrounded by seasonal Celtic trees to represent the wisdom of the Ogham as a whole. Mystical Cats Tarot has the Mystical Cat Sigel seen on all the aces with pussywillow and catnip against a starry sky to welcome you into their magical realm. #tarot #art #oracle #cards #cats #celtic #ogham (at Mickie Mueller studio)
