The Guide for the Gifted and Fearless

10 of Cups: Placing Peace

On the card is a picture of a happy family enjoying a rainbow reaching over their land with 10 golden cups inside of it. All is well. It’s also perfect that this card chooses to be read as the heavy storm that has been raging all night and all day in Southern California clears. Believe in the new day.


Today I know that I have received golden information. Advice from someone established in my career of interest (a doula) who invited me into her studio for a 2 hour conversation and Red Tea, sharing with me advice and guidance that will not only benefit my work as a healer, but has already helped to ground me in my growth and wisdom as a human being, a child of God and Earth. I am reminded of the importance of elders and I’ve been painlessly humbled.

“Everything is written.”

And after 2 hours of staring into the unguarded, knowing eyes of the sacred feminine, I can say with calm confidence,

“Separation does NOT exist.”

Wow. It’s so simple (BUT NOT EASY) to connect with that. And now that I am, what can stop me from living my life as me? Nothing. Everything. Lol.

…the energy I needed to be okay/the energy I needed to remove to be okay/he energy that consumed me when I felt that everything was okay… same. Able to be manipulated. Not able to be removed.

With the rainbow over my life I still feel the same, living the life that I am, learning the process as I do. Peace and acceptance are my tools. I’m still the authority. And love is still what i’m made of. But when the rainbow comes out it’s like OOOOOOOOOOOoooooooOHHHHHHHHH I GET IT.

Holding onto the waist of my existence,

Proud to call her my partner,

My lover and my confidant.

I look at the arrangement of Divine Love above us,

Remembering when we first met

My partner was bruised and confused

She said she didn’t know me; She told me I didn’t remember her.

Well now what do you say to me?

That you trust me and that you’re here for us.

I see you hold my hand in public and wash and oil my hair.

When they try to join us we let them and if they leave we hold each other.

You are so much more to me than lust.

You are my inspiration; I look at you now and see something unbreakable.

You aren’t a queen but the essence of one.

I will remember you eternally like the sky remembers our rainbow.

Peace and Love (before I get caught up in the cups),
