For the first time since starting my business in 2010, I'm posting photos of myself on my about page and creating video content for my ecourses. It has taken me a while to get to a place where I felt that this change was not only necessary for my business but something which I wanted to do. The choice to be more visible online has pushed me way pass my comfort zone and there has been a lot of internal pep talks (and long tea breaks and cuddles with the apothecary pup).
Seeking some reassurance that the decision I was making to create more visual content featuring my face was a good one, I created the following tarot spread. If you have a project or change on the horizon that you know you need to do but feel intimated by, the Affirm + Manifest spread is for you.
As business owners, personal and professional growth is part of the game, yet it can be really uncomfortable and challenging. It’s been my experience that these growth pains can lead to some amazing opportunities and success. But these changes can feel so intimidating, making it hard to feel that we’re ready to start.
The following spread helps remind you why the change is not only necessary but beneficial to your business as well as yourself, while also highlighting the next steps you should be taking to make it happen. I did this exact spread a week before I finally filmed my first video and it was just the sort of reassurance that I needed.
Affirm + Manifest Tarot Spread
Start by choosing a significator card that represents who you want to be on the other side of this change. If you’re struggling with trusting your intuition in business, for example, you might choose the High Priestess. Or if you don’t trust that what you have to offer is valuable, you might choose the Empress or the Nine of Pentacles. Or just choose whatever card stirs something aspirational within you based solely on its imagery, regardless of its traditional meaning. Once your significator is chosen you can proceed with the rest of the spread.
Card 1: What should I make sure to highlight in myself and my business with this change?
Card 2: How will this change be of benefit to me and my business?
Card 3: What hurdles do I need to overcome?
Card 4: Step to take in the next week.
Card 5: Step to take in the next month
Card 6: Step to take in the next three months.
Card 7: When feels too challenging, remember…
