I’ve been using tarot cards for quite a while now, and I have become accustomed to using and interpreting them. They give me an incredible insight into many different topics, and are about the only diving tool that I have any faith in at all. Despite this comfort and familiarity with them, sometimes they just astound me in ways I never thought possible.
When I was asking the cards about the topics in my previous post, it said one of the most important things I could do lay in my continuing and increasing of my writings. I know that many of you do not know me on a personal level, but the writings aren’t usually a big deal for me. Unless it’s something strange, I can read it (or discover it) and that’s it, so the slowing of my writings have become no big deal in my mind. I was just writing down information that I knew anyway.
At the recommendation of the cards I began writing many of the things I have learned in recent times down to see if I could draw any new connections within the information, which is one of the bonuses that I do get from writing. I’ve been writing almost every evening for the past few weeks, just purging all of the recent information I have onto paper (yes, paper).
Then it hit me. My memory started to wane. My short-term memory has gone to complete garbage. Earlier in the week I received a text that a friend was coming to get me, replied to him, and about a half-hour later someone in the office said that my friend had been waiting outside the office for quite a while. I know it only takes him about 5 minutes to get here, but when I asked him why he didn’t tell me he was coming he looked really confused. I had no recollection of having received the text, or having sent a reply at all. Nothing. If I didn’t see the reply on my own phone I would have thought he was kidding. It turns out that this is not the only isolated incident.
All of a sudden this is becoming a severe problem. My short-term memory has gone to crap and my mid-term memory seems to be slipping a bit. I had a med tweak not too long ago, so I’m pretty sure it has to do with that. My hands shake, I can’t stay awake at work, and now I have to write everything down or I’ll forget it in a matter of minutes.
This is exactly what the cards were talking about. Some of the big-time information that I have learned was committed to paper, and when I look at them now, they are like someone else wrote them. Weeks of information and insight would have been lost, and possibly not recovered. I may have to become one of those crazy guys that is always talking into a micro recorder.
I’m fairly confident that switching back to my old medication routine (or a completely different set) will set everything on a solid path, but acting on the information given to me by the cards saved me from some serious loss of my studies. Many of these little revelations lead to big ones later, and to have lost them would have been a shame.
If you use the tarot, listen well. They can tell you more than you think.
