018 - Embrace Relying Upon Others

Posted on February 20th, 2018

We need interconnectedness to thrive and do well in life. When Val once had a Tarot reading, she was told that her success and happiness in life would depend on her working with others and giving to others.

At the time, Val felt a sense of shame or embarrassment that she would need to have help from others. We have a culture that teaches us to be independent, but this may not be the best thing for us.

Val now realizes now that it’s nothing to be ashamed of, it’s what we all need. Working together and having connections in life is important for each and every one of us.
