1. Use platforms/products that have a mission (like censorship-free #Minds).
2. Follow those dedicated to exposing truth and re-share good information. Make a channel and invite friends for this specific purpose. Turn off the regular news. It is full of lies and stressors.
3. Prepare for more disruption which might include shut downs or changes in food/water supply, gas, medicine, travel, and/or finance. Make some basic plans to weather the storms ahead (without getting paranoid).
4. Get healthy. Eat right, move your body, and address any medical concerns through holistic doctors. Get off any drugs you don’t absolutely need. Taking action decreases anxiety and empowers.
5. Build community connections with those like-minded and don’t waste words on those with closed ears. Friends/family you can count on are priceless and should become our primary focus.
Maintain your childlike spirit ~ Nature holds all aspects of light. This light is the same brilliant light that shines out of every child while they are still in touch with the magic of the world and nature. Find the innocence of your childhood light within you and reconnect with it. This light represents your virtue and holds the memory of perfect trust, fearlessness in others and total self-reliance. It will allow you to see the world with the eyes of a child. You will be excited to learn new things every day. How much happier our world would be if everyone reconnected to his or her purest essence!
Celebrate differences ~ You understand that everything in life comes with an opposite. Even within yourself, you have polarity – male/female, high/low, good/bad, light/dark. It is our differences that make us unique. We all come from the same collective and all have the light of the inner soul. The more we learn and grow in our thoughts and attitudes, the more understanding and compassion can develop within our lives. Take a moment to appreciate an individual for the qualities that they are sharing with you and find what learning can be gained from this situation.
Breakthrough ~ Feel confident that things are falling into place. Just as a seedling breaking through the surface of the earth, you too are going to experience an emergence. The efforts of your hard work will become evident and you will begin to see the difference of all that labor and time you have invested has made. Count your blessings! You are gifted with a creative touch and the ability to generate new and wonderful things. Take a moment to feel proud of yourself for all that you have accomplished.
Acceptance of Love ~ This image is a representation of the harmony of opposites, masculine and feminine. You have the ability to give love freely to yourself and to others. It is important to understand that you are whole, complete and perfect now and will enhance the life of another. Love can happen. Love is the truth of all situations. Love the soul embodied inside you. Express more love in your life and allow yourself to feel loved. Everything happens exactly when it is supposed to. In that order, everything that happens is what is supposed to take place. You bring a bright light and individuality into this world.

“This moment humanity is going through can now be seen as a portal and as a hole. The decision to fall into the hole or go through the portal is up to you. If they repent of the problem and consume the news 24 hours a day, with little energy, nervous all the time, with pessimism, they will fall into the hole.
But if you take this opportunity to look at yourself, rethink life and death, take care of yourself and others, you will cross the portal. Take care of your home, take care of your body. Connect with the middle body of your spiritual House. Connect to the egregor of your spiritual home. Body, house, medium body, spiritual house, all this is synonymous, that is to say the same. When you are taking care of one, you are taking care of everything else. Do not lose the spiritual dimension of this crisis, have the aspect of the eagle, which from above, sees the whole, sees more widely. There is a social demand in this crisis, but there is also a spiritual demand. The two go hand in hand. Without the social dimension, we fall into fanaticism. But without the spiritual dimension, we fall into pessimism and lack of meaning.
You were prepared to go through this crisis. Take your toolbox and use all the tools at your disposal. Learn about resistance with indigenous and African peoples: we have always been and continue to be exterminated. But we still haven’t stopped singing, dancing, lighting a fire and having fun. Don’t feel guilty about being happy during this difficult time. You don’t help at all by being sad and without energy. It helps if good things emanate from the Universe now. It is through joy that one resists.
Also, when the storm passes, you will be very important in the reconstruction of this new world. You need to be well and strong. And, for that, there is no other way than to maintain a beautiful, happy and bright vibration. This has nothing to do with alienation. This is a resistance strategy. In shamanism, there is a rite of passage called the quest for vision. You spend a few days alone in the forest, without water, without food, without protection. When you go through this portal, you get a new vision of the world, because you have faced your fears, your difficulties …
This is what is asked of you. Let them take advantage of this time to perform their vision seeking rituals.
What world do you want to build for yourself? For now, this is what you can do: serenity in the storm. Calm down and pray. Everyday. Establish a routine to meet the sacred every day. Good things emanate, what you emanate now is the most important thing. And sing, dance, resist through art, joy, faith and love.”
You were born to create: You were blessed to have the ability to create without thought, intention, action and emotion. Be conscious of your power and aware of what your actions and reactions create within and around you. Cherish this gift and use it in both a wise and productive ate beauty, and inspire a desire within others to do the same. Relate a future that both fulfills and delights. Do what you were born to do.
Observe in silence: Now is not the time to,be the life of the party, nor to step forward into the role of leader or teacher. Be cautious. It may not be wise to draw attention to yourself or to reveal your plans to others at this time. Instead, be silent. P back. Be still. Watch those around you and be mindful of what you see, hear and feel. Trust in your instincts and intuition and let them guide your steps.
Seek Your Destiny: You have purpose and reason for being. You could have one or even several destinies. Are you afraid to believe in destiny because others may laugh? Don’t be. It could be as simple as taking a moment to look within and discover those things that you love most passionately and bring them out into the light. But you will never know if you are afraid to step through the doorway and see what’s on the other side. Trust that everything you hope and dream of will be there waiting for you.

You are being gently warned of untruths, denial, and unsupportive thoughts and words in any area of your life. If you’ve been dishonest in any way, it’s time to make amends. Change your tune; otherwise, your impact on the world will not be as effective as you would like. Even if you were to be successful as an immediate result, there would be a price to pay later.
If others are being unsupportive toward you, know that it’s them, not you. Don’t take the world personally. Remember that you don’t have to engage others when the project their own fears and negativity onto you.
Another message here is about how you speak about yourself. Do you say self-deprecating words? Do you minimize yourself so as not to intimidate others? Do you refer to yourself as less than beautiful? Time to change those unconscious statements now! It’s not difficult to change things, as we are always given a choice to make new decisions. As long as you remain positive and supportive, the rest will quickly melt away until all you perceive is the highest good for all. All you need is a desire to change and be positive and you will be help to win the game of life!
Powerful forces of change are being brought to your life. Expect a sudden shift in your circumstances. Perhaps a situation your weren’t anticipating arises and offers you the opportunity of a lifetime, or a series of “AHA!” moments culminates in a pivotal flash of insight causing everything to change “just like that”. Maybe someone enters your life and pushes you to new heights. You may have a brilliant idea that hits you like lightening.
Be prepared: Change in imminent, and a total paradigm shift may be upon you. Don’t resist the changes, as this kind of lightening isn’t something you want to fight. Great things are happening.
Be mindful of codependency and enmeshment. You are invited to address how overwhelmed you may be around other people. Do you pick up on their feelings like a sponge? Do you feel you need to heal them so that you can feel better?
Get grounded. Be clear about your own personal boundaries, and restrain yourself when you feel like jumping in to help without being asked. There is a warning against forming unhealthy relationships in any area of your life.

Walk in confidence with this knowing and all the doors of life will “Magically” open. ~ Jody
Take time for the dreamer in you. Find your power in stillness. In your sacred space is the peace you seek.
You have seen and unseen allies. Draw upon their strength. Join forces with friends and flourish.
Laugh at yourself. Lighten your heart. Let nothing steal your happiness.
Be grateful for abundance. Live in appreciation for what you have, and more good things will come.
Be open for whatever comes next. It might just be the music your heart’s been waiting to hear.
“Be careful of your thoughts, for they become your words. Be careful of your words, for they become your actions. Be careful of your actions for they become your habits. Be careful of your habits, for they become your character. Be careful of your character, for your character becomes your destiny.” ~ Unknown
Message from the deck “Magical Times” Empowerment cards created by Jody Bergsma
In this reading you can look at just the italic portion for a more earthly meaning, or the non-italics for a more spiritual meaning, or both for a more full interpretation.
Balance imagination and reality. Be cautious of giving undue influence to baseless assumption. Distinguish between opinion and evidence. Become aware of false limitations. Put real effort into proving a doubt or fear wrong. Be open to new ideas and perspectives, but do your homework and ensure a claim can hold true in practice as well as theory.
Only through the eyes of the soul can the true nature of your life, existence and purpose be known. All of life flows from one divine heart of creation. You have a purpose, a meaning and a role to play in this great journey of life. It may be beyond the knowing of the physical world, but it is not beyond the knowing of your soul.
A feeling that history is repeating. The patterns in your past – in your childhood, in your relationships, in your career – are escapable. Stop and learn the lesson so you can move forward. There is no need to mind,easily (endlessly) repeat. Look outside of what you know and break a cycle. Someone, perhaps the universe, is trying to tell you something. A unique response to a repeat problem is needed.
From the flawless patterns of your spirit, a great light shines upon the world. You are a leader, a healer, an inspiration, a free spirit … unrestricted by traditional thinking. A desire to be all you can be, and a vision for positive transformation draws you into deep exploration and clarity. Break free, reshape your destiny and follow the spiraling, intertwining pathways of peace, love and wisdom.
Sudden clarity amid adversity. Acute awareness of yourself and your circumstances. Finding unexpected strength and wisdom in a crisis. Realizing the limits of a situation … pressure cannot make diamonds from coal. Challenging a misconception or calling out a false promise. Isolate and develop an idea, talent or goal to excellence, without external influence. Trusting you will have what it takes when it matters.
All soon clears, heals and is resolved. Peace ascends within you like a glorious bud opening to the surface. Realization comes in a dazzling flash, and you will see the world and your soul as blessed as they truly are. Follow love to the peaceful space inside your heart, your power center, from which all is possible and all is available.
The tedium or drudgery of a safe but unstimulating environment. Denying a problem worsens an outcome. Avoidance f the tough stuff causes dependence, stagnation or loss of self. Make mistakes with the purpose of learning from them. Aim to manage stress, rather than eliminating it. Minimize damage by turning a difficulty to your advantage. A challenge brings needed incentive.
Challenge helps you face and overcome fear. This challenge is a blessing that will in some way make you stronger and more resilient. Open yourself to the light of the world. Draw it into you, be empowered by it and channel it into your environment for all to benefit from. Face all that comes your way and trust your ability to make change for the greater good.
Withdraw to the security of loved ones. Stumbling on or triggering a memory. Stories told in safety. Creative space. A message from the past, for the future. Your body remembers, listen to its story. Deep pain is transformed into wisdom and understanding. An inheritance, legacy or heirloom. Having access to the tools and knowledge you need. Be gentle with who you were and strong about who you will become.
If you are feeling lost, confused or are asking what life is all about, then it may be the perfect time to consult your original self. The one you keep hidden while you grow up and supposedly wiser around it. The sweet, loving, innocent you is not lost. Deep down, you are still that person. The original you exists outside of time, safe and awaiting rediscovery.
An underlying fear of success. New ideas threaten old ways. Positive change respects the past and the future – put your thinking cap on and brainstorm. Step outside of conformity and we’ll-meaning advice. Creative energy is generated through conversation and play. Be prepared for loud applause and the accompanying criticism. Experimentation recharges an interest. A sudden realization brings dramatic change.
An inspirational thought flows into your heart and something new is born. You are focused, inspired and intuitively guided towards success. Much is accomplished with seemingly little effort because the force of love and purpose is on your side. Your work and energy shall touch the hearts of many. Embrace your mental brilliance as part of your light.
Put yourself forward. Stand in the sun. Grab an opportunity and run with it. Reach beyond the shade, out of the comfort of darkness, and step into life. Holding yourself back is counterintuitive. Doubt, fear, anxiety and grief may be part of your journey, but don’t let them be the journey. Reach out. Stretch yourself little by little, grow strong and LIVE!
In a fleeting moment of grace, in the space between your thoughts, you glimpse a silent bliss that is beyond words or description. This all-encompassing love is your soulful, spiritual center. It is without beginning or end. Reach for it, and this state of grace shall be a guiding light in this world and beyond. It is life … it is eternal.
