Here we see the man cloaked in misery – reflecting over his losses. His three cups have spilled and now he grieves. In fact, he becomes so caught up in his grief and remorse that he turns his back on the two upright cups that are sitting right there. He reminds us that where we focus our thoughts we also focus our energy. In our lives sometimes feelings of loss will be present. It’s during those times it is important to not become too attached to the emotions of nostalgia and regret but to shift your focus to those two upright cups. Look to the blessings and abundance that already are there. Doing this makes way for more abundance to flow in while we work to constructively heal our grievances.
Position 1: Background | Present Concern
A period of obstacles and exhaustion. Depression. Feeling drained or low energy – could also be boredom or a need for something more exciting to bring a sense of higher purpose in your life.
Position 2: Your Drive and Motivations
Feelings of loneliness and disappointment are weighing heavily on you right now. Period of seeking and not finding. Unable to recognize blessings or opportunities because the focus is on challenges.
Position 3: What’s Blocking You – Fears and Subconscious
You may be having difficulties in your marriage/relationship or another prominent area in your life. You are tired of feeling like you have to work so hard only to remain dissatisfied. Indicates a period of emotional exhaustion, or feeling overwhelmed.
Position 4: Perspective and Further Awareness – What you Need to See Clearly
Reforming old habits, changing your beliefs, learning to take a more proactive approach to your life. What we believe we create, and what we focus on tends to be drawn to us. If we focus on feelings of “I can’t” or “I don’t have enough”, it can become a self-fulfilling prophecy. A need to consciously seek a different perspective.
Position 5: Course of Action
You are at a point right now where you are in need of a spiritual cleansing. You are looking outward to find things that will fill the void. What you need to understand is that until you deal with what is going on inside of you, you will never achieve peace.
Remember the only person you are guaranteed to spend eternity with is yourself. Learn to honor the soulmate that you see in the mirror every day. When we become attached to feelings of deprivation or loneliness we fail to fully appreciate the abundance that is also present. Where our thoughts go so does our energy, and we draw to us what we put out.
