This morning I am pondering a subject that never seems to have an answer in my mind. How can I help someone to have a more open mind? This is not about one single person in my life, more a need that I see over and over again. I’ve never been able to understand the whole idea of being so set in your ways that you can’t see someone else’s point of view. Even if you don’t agree with what is being said or practiced or viewed…why isn’t there any room for a wide lens approach? I have this problem at my job as well as in my circle of friends so, it really matters to me. I of course understand that we each have our own set of values, principles and tolerance levels but, why is there only ONE way of seeing things? Well, since this is something that I can’t seem to figure out for myself, I decided to ask the Tarot.
“How can I help others to open their minds?”
The Ace of Cups
Keeping an open heart and making sure this doesn’t become an emotional issue, in other words, I shouldn’t get angry or frustrated with others.
I should continue to share my thoughts, feelings and ideas with others.
These things are from the heart and that’s why it matters so much.
Nine of Cups:
Ahhh, I like this. It would seem that my wish to “open up others minds” is clearly possible. I should just keep working at this and make sure I’m being practical and realistic about the things I’m hoping to accomplish. The Wish Card is so appropriate for me in this question, I really do wish I could help people overcome being so rigid that they can’t see what wonderful things are happening all around them.

Keep moving! That’s what I see here. In Tarot Dynamics, there is a great understanding of this card for me today. “You can bring matters out in the open in a way that offends no one and benefits everyone.” The perfect ending to my little three card reading this morning!
