week 4 ~ Life Path Challenge 2017

Here's what we're covering in Week 4, the final week of the 2017 Life Path Challenge (#lifepathchallenge2017) in case you'd like to get a head start in working with your Life Path cards for next week. Get out your journal as you're going to want to write your insights so you can look them over at the end of the month for any special revelations.

This week, there is no topic. We're trying to see how far we've come in just a month and will be revisiting some of the previous prompts. I'll be sharing my insights on the photos below through my Instagram feed (@otmoraclecards) each day in January.

Monday, January 23, 2017 ~ Pathworking Meditation

For this pathworking meditation, we're seeing where we are right now at the end of this challenge. Take a few moments to review the cards you've chosen for the various prompts. Pose the question, What path am I on now? and pull one card face down at random. Then imagine that you’re stepping into the card and onto the path. Gaze at the card imagery and consider these questions:

What kind of path are you walking on? Does it seem pleasant or unpleasant? If the path is pleasant to you it suggests you’re currently going through a pleasant experience. If unpleasant, you’re dealing with difficulties.

What’s at your feet? Is the ground difficult to walk on? What’s at your feet reflects your foundation. Is it a smooth and solid foundation, or are you on shaky ground?

What’s directly in front of you? What’s directly in front of you is a symbol of what you’re currently facing (dealing with) in your current environment.

Are you traveling alone or with others? How do you feel about that? If you’re traveling with others it suggests your concerns involve other people.

Where are you headed? Why? Where you’re headed reveals your life direction. It gives some insight into the near future. Why explains the purpose of this path or journey. It gives you a sense of the big picture.

Based on this path, how long do you think it will take to get there? This reflects the timing of where you’re headed.

Are there any obstacles on this path? If so, how can they be removed? A key question. This helps you understand what barriers prevent your progress. These obstacles are also prolonging your journey and may delay you in reaching your goals.

What's beyond what you can see on this path? This points to the future beyond what you expect. This response represents the final or outcome card in a reading. The distant future. It also shows what you’re expecting or what’s hidden from you (potential, fears, hopes).

How does this path compare/contrast to the first pathworking card at the beginning of the challenge? What similarities and differences do you notice? What do you think they mean?

Some of you may actually go into a dream-like state during this journey while others will be able to use your imagination to come up with the answers. If you're able to, journal your responses to these questions as you do the pathworking meditation, and include as much as you can about your feelings, what you notice about the path, and any memories or experiences it brings up. You can also just experience the pathworking and journal later.

Tuesday, January 24, 2017 ~ Inner Landscape

Pose the question, "How do I feel?" Shuffle and pull a card at random to reflect your inner landscape or your inner self.

Describe this path.

How do you feel walking this path? 

How does this path reflect your hopes and fears?

Wednesday, January 25, 2017 ~ Outer Landscape

Pose the question, "What environment am I in?" Shuffle and pull a card at random to reflect your outer landscape or actual environment.

Describe this path.

How do you feel walking this path?

How is this path similar and different from the Inner Landscape? 

How is this path like your current environment (day-to-day situations, people, experiences)? 

Thursday, January 26, 2017 ~ Choices and Options Spread

Think of two choices or options related to your life right now. Focus on your options and choose one card to represent each option.

Based solely on the card imagery, which option seems like the better choice? Why?

What do you learn about each option that you hadn't considered before?

Friday, January 27, 2017 ~ The Road Ahead

This is our chance to do one final pathworking meditation about the road ahead or next few months.

Pose the question, What path represents the road ahead? and pull one card face down at random. Then imagine that you’re stepping into the card and onto the path. Gaze at the card imagery and consider these questions:

What type of journey will you encounter in the next few months? Pleasant, struggle, obstacles?

Contrast this path to the one performed earlier this week and the one performed the first week of the challenge. How are they similar? Different?

What have you learned this month from doing the exercises in this challenge? How will you move forward?

Thanks for participating!
The #createthisoracledeck challenge is coming in March...more info soon!!
