King of Pentacles (Reversed): No Longer Needing Worldly Validation

Tonight I looked in the mirror of a bathroom at a cafe and pledged my love and trust to myself. I said,

“If you trust me, I promise you protection, to always be loved, and to consistently move you forward. Do you trust me?”

The motion-detecting lights cut out as I said, “I do.”

Tonight I make the conscious decision to no longer rely on other’s validation of myself; I AM THE AUTHORITY OVER WHO I AM.


Thank you to Joi K. Madison, Clarity Coach for holding a safe, inclusive space for healing tonight. I was reminded why I actually really do love people… when one evolves we all are led to positive progression.

Tonight I go to sleep THAT much closer to removing the old, harmful habits, the negative voices that occasionally appear in my mind (and are not mine), the pain of my past. Tonight I can say that I am at peace. And if it’s only tonight, okay. This moment is forever.

My resolution for 2018: BE MYSELF OUT LOUD


And thank you every moment before now for preparing me for it, because now I have the strength to look back and laugh.

Peace and Love,

Katherine Elizabeth Jackson (The King)
