Letting go takes practice. It is our natural inclination to grasp:
at at things… at ourselves… at others… But all this grasping
does not do what we hope. It does not make us happy. It is
a prison of our own design.
Learning to let go is a process of trust and faith.
We think that by trying to control we will be in control.
Energy spent trying to control everything and everyone
around us is exhausting and ultimately useless. I remember going round
and round with my boyfriend- locked in an unhealthy dynamic of tension
and bickering. When I stopped it was a huge relief, a seemingly simple
solution- but it wasn’t when I was in it! I needed the instructions to
just let go. Our relationship immediately improved because I was able
to give the other person space. We all need space and sometimes we are
not aware of the stranglehold we are exerting on others.
Developing trust and faith in a spiritual process is the first step.
It’s easier then. When we know that getting back to our true nature is
the most important thing, it makes outside stuff boring. The mall looses
it’s allure. To really have the capacity to love rests in letting go.
It’s a seeming paradox but the more we let go, the more able we are to love.
When am I going to meet someone?
When you stop going from your bed to work to home
(in front of the T.V.) to the fridge back to your bed.
Of course, a psychic tarot reading can always help.
The reader can possibly see where the blocks to a relationship lie
and how to fix the problem. They can potentially predict who you will
meet and when.
There are also practical steps you can take.
Here are some ideas:
Join a Meet Up group and explore things that interest you.
You will meet other people with common interests.
The potential for meeting “someone” increases exponentially!

A Recipe for Happiness
Loving, compassionate intentions will lead us safely to the other shore.
Anger, hatred, greed are nothing but a sinking ship.
The Tarot helps to illuminate things previously hidden-
stored away just on the other side of our conscious mind.
Carl Jung said that the answer to any problem lies there-
right under our noses!
