Find out what you need to hear right now below.


Your card: 5 of Swords

“Day 294:

The difference between the ones who are defeated by their challenges and the ones who are transformed by them is often whether the person moves toward their discomfort, or runs away from it—as it is the ones with the courage to go inward are often rewarded far beyond their wildest dreams.”


Your card: The Tower

“Day 9:

Whatever pain you think you are in right now cannot begin to compare to the peace that will one day come over you. You will require a new level of integrity within your life, which will transpire into better boundaries and a more stable foundation.”


Your card: King of Pentacles

“Day 12:

Release yourself into the dreamscape, and follow your heart’s deepest calling, as it is leading you to the actions that will continue to weave your life into the story of humanity. Without you being here, nothing—not one single thing—would be precisely the same.”


Your card: 10 of Pentacles

“Day 3:

One day you will realize that happiness is not what your
house looks like, but how you love the people within its
walls. Happiness is not finding success by a certain time,
but finding something you love so much time itself seems
to disappear.”


Your card: 9 of Swords

“Day 165:

Whatever you feel most strongly about is the next thing that needs to happen. Don’t worry about how it will all add up, or to where exactly it will lead. Consistency is the tonic that transforms your life into a dream of your own design.”


Your card: Knight of Wands

“Day 257:

How do you believe in your potential when your reality tells a different story? You begin to understand that belief is not found; it is built. It is built from desire, from hope, from passion morphed into some tangible reality”


Your card: 9 of Cups

“Day 40:

Instead of thinking of every one of your qualities as fixed, consider that your environment and the structure of your day evoke different emotional states and, with consistency, can begin to appear on the surface as unmovable aspects of who you are. What is happening around you when you are the most peaceful, open-minded, inspired version of yourself?”


Your card: The World

“Day 110:

There is not one other human being alive who can accurately assess whether or not you are where you are supposed to be. Even if you have every external success in the world but know, deep inside, you are not fully fulfilled, then you have to trust that.”


Your card: The Star

“Day 102:

You are meant to shed old layers. You are meant to let go. The body is designed to digest and metabolize and renew itself, cell by cell, and thought by thought. Trust the process. Realize that we don’t ever really have to let go; we just have to accept what’s already gone.”


Your card: 6 of Swords

“Day 111:

The world as it is today does not give us the grace for the normal transitions you are meant to go through. You need to create space within your life to signify your internal growth, to mark for yourself the end of one chapter and the beginning of another.”


Your card: 3 of Swords

“Day 288:

Piece by piece, you are going to make a life for yourself. Not because you have finally arrived at a place where everything is perfect, but because you have allowed your flowers to grow in between the concrete of your grief.”


Your card: 5 of Pentacles

“Day 78:

If you understand that life is about the little things, you will never find yourself wanting more than what’s in front of you. You will understand that true joy is using what you have, being where you are, and loving the souls who have chosen to walk with you.”
