Hi, My name is John
I would like to have a reading in regards to my career. At the moment, I am at a privileged position where I have a decent job and I am good at what I do. However, since I was hired in June 2013, I still have that sense of unhappiness, stress. There are moments where I am happy but I have that rollercoaster of emotions on a daily basis and I am never sure about what to do. I have looked at other places to work but not as active as others would like me to, as family and friends can see my hostility and discomfort.
I would just like a piece on mind that ‘everything is going to be okay’, or have any indication as to when my negative feelings will be relieved. I don’t particularly want to leave my current position, but that is because I have fears as if I move on, would I live to regret it? How will my boss react? In addition, I just want to say that I enjoyed my job, because I don’t have that satisfaction that I desire.
It would be great if someone could shed the light on the topic. My career (as well as my family) is what I feel is the most important thing to me and my future happiness.
I’m Sharie, thank you for your time and trust and I hope the following reading brings you the empowerment and peace that you need at this time. I combined my Shamanic skills and psychic abilities with the Tarot of the Northern Shadows a Celtic deck.
It’s obvious you’re asking questions about your job right now but as you say, while you’re experiencing some self-doubts and stress, you’re good at what you do and there are many positive aspects around you with your job. First of all, you need to keep your focus on these positive aspects rather than your more challenging feelings around your work. I feel you are in the right job for you right now and it really is a case of maintaining the right balance. What I pick up from your energy is that you are a very conscientious employee and want to do the best possible job. Don’t worry – I’d say that your boss is aware of this, but you need to beware of taking on too much in your desire to prove yourself. If you find yourself doing two people’s jobs instead of just yours – please don’t be afraid to say so! This isn’t a sign you are letting people down – on the contrary, it’s a sign of good management skills and wanting to maintain the quality of your work. You will actually gain your boss’s respect if you flag up certain issues – not the reverse.
I’m also picking up that you expect higher standards from yourself than even your boss expects from you – or you would expect from others if you were in charge – so please look at issues around this and see if this rings true for you. You may also have a little bit of what is known as ‘impostor syndrome’ going on – where although we know we are good at our jobs (which you mention) we start to wonder if in fact our performance so far is some kind of ‘fluke’ or ‘luck’ -and we’ll end up named and shamed as frauds sooner or later! If this sometimes plays a part for you, then understand that 1) it’s not true and not how you are seen by your boss or co-workers and 2) almost everybody experiences this at one time or another in their working lives!
Right now your inner voice is telling you that you are right where you are supposed to be in terms of your work and that is why you are unable to put any real enthusiasm into looking for a new job. I would therefore advise you not to at this time and to put your trust into the fact that you will know when it is time to move on and find a fresh work challenge. You have the skills and expertise necessary to succeed and all that is required of you at the moment is to look closely at the aspects of your job which are causing you doubt or to feel you are on an ‘emotional rollercoaster’ and to deal with these by either talking to your boss, HR or a manager about how you can manage certain aspects of your role more effectively, or else by looking at whether you are expecting too much of yourself. If you can do this, I am positive you will be in a much better position within the next 5/6 weeks.
Once you can do this and begin to see how your work and your inner wellbeing are linked, your confidence and energy is going to soar and you will be feeling much more motivated and in a position to enjoy not just your job, but family and friends. Ensure you are getting the right work/life balance because real success involves maintaining this. You can’t have one without the other and what is clear from your energy is that is one is out of balance it really will affect your wellbeing on many levels an ability to enjoy your life as well as your work.
The cards really do indicate that you can find a resolution to this issue just by making a few changes perhaps to your workload but also to your thinking around your own expectations of your ‘on-the-job’ performance. Again, although timing can be difficult, I really do feel this will be resolved quite quickly.
You have the ability to really progress as your career path unfolds so look at this as an opportunity to learn how to maintain your enthusiasm for your work and what you have to bring to your job, without risking getting burned out.
I see a great deal of positive change and future success coming in and hope this has helped you resolve this issue.
I am currently experiencing a really lovely time in my life in my personal life and am very grateful for it. I feel I am beginning to realise how the law of attraction works. However, I am about to leave on maternity soon and as my business is failing and I am looking at bankruptcy, but am taking this as a positive step in order to move forward in my life and make a fresh start where my finances are concerned. My worry is returning to work as I am hoping to have 9 months off (which will be welcomed with open arms as I have always been working!). I trained as a professional actress and have had some success along the way but nothing which meant I could sustain an acting career and leave my daytime job. Do you see anything on the horizon where my acting career is concerned or any opportunities I need to look out for?
Firstly you have a lovely ‘summery’ energy and I feel that an optimistic attitude will always be your best resource for handling anything life throws at you. Nurture your cheerful disposition as it is a strength for you. I feel very strongly that the changes that are happening in your life at the moment are not just down to chance. Synchronicity is playing a large part of what will unfold over the next few months so keep your antennae tuned for chance meetings, signs or intuitions that will help you steer your course and open up opportunities.
I see two tarot cards for you right now in my mind’s eye – The Fool and The Empress. The Fool in the positive sense is a card of new beginnings, venturing into the unknown with a sense of positivity and hope for the future. At the same time, he asks that we keep our eyes wide open and watch our steps as we tread any new paths. The Empress suggests that it’s a time of abundance and vitality, one where you have the potential to create the life you want by raising your vibration with the power of positive thinking.
I feel that this is an ideal time for you to be thinking about those dreams you placed on the back burner, and that includes those around acting. Imagine for a moment that all of your dreams for success have come true and track your deepest thoughts and feelings. Is every single part of you in alignment with the possibility? Or is there a small part of you that throws up any kind of objection? It might sound strange but it possible for us to find the prospect of success as scary as failure. In particular, examine whether you truly feel that you deserve it and clear out any beliefs that could undermine all of your efforts and the opportunities that synchronicity is bringing your way.
I feel you need to keep your boots firmly on the ground for the new baby but also allow yourself to think BIG. It doesn’t serve you to play small, so play your part and shine. Keep a well balanced Virgo eye on your finances and consider a part time job to provide security so worry is not a problem while you start to follow your dreams again.
All in all, it’s important that you do the inner work to keep your vibration high and match that with your own efforts as I do feel that you are more likely to achieve the success you want with a long and sustained focus, rather than it arriving overnight.
When the other little star is born keep looking to the stars as you will have your hands full, so don’t forget to keep motivation high. Sometimes with major life events like bankruptcy and dreams that are still nagging at us even after many years, the universe is trying to re-point you down a different path, a path you should be on. And we both know that the spotlight is where you should be.
Love and light,
