On Saturday, we were fortunate to host Margo Mateas, creator of the Career Card Deck, in Aquarian Age Massage’s gift shop, Spiritworks Gifts. We are situated on the corner of 15th and Quincy in Tulsa’s very busy Cherry Street District, so I knew she would get a lot of foot traffic for her promotions.
I stayed downstairs to assist Shelni with the extra Christmas shoppers, and was on hand to get responses to the free readings that Margo was offering to our customers. Everyone I spoke to who received a reading was overwhelmed by the accuracy of the cards. Several customers and many of our co-workers had literal revelations about what they need to do in order to see new results in the upcoming New Year.
Then it was my turn. After my workday was done, I sat down across from Margo and she began explaining how the cards worked. She had me hold the deck, and conceptualize my question…a funny thing happened. The question I thought I was going to ask, ended up not being the question that came to mind once I held and concentrated on the cards. Instead, an issue that I had been dealing with since switching careers came back into focus. I asked that question instead and received the answer I needed to hear. Then I asked a question I thought was relevant…and again the cards pointed me in a totally different direction. So Margo told me to concentrate and ask the question again. So I closed my eyes, shuffled the deck and when I cut the cards, there was the “Courage” card staring straight up at me! “Didn’t you see it flip over?” Margo asked. “I had my eyes closed. I was concentrating.” What I read on the card blew my mind. The passage that stood out to me the most is as follows:
…”set aside your earthly fears about failing, looking bad, being inadequate or seeming like an outcast–step forward boldly into your true destiny. Those who have made big marks in this world are always the ones who went against the traditional thinking of the time and who dared to dream dreams that others dismissed as being too outrageous or impossible.”
And just as others had reported…I was blown away. I SO needed to hear those words at that moment. It truly helped me get my perspective straight in order for me to redirect my energy back into the path that I chose when I left my previous job.
These cards would make a great gift this Christmas, and Margo and I are working out the details to have her come back in February to do a workshop with the cards. If you are interested in purchasing a deck, some on down to Spiritworks Gifts at 1401 E.15th St in Tulsa, OK or go to http://www.thecareercards.com.
Blessings on the New Year!!
