Love is not something reserved for romantic relationships. A life filled with love is a life filled with the Power of God and this power permeates everything we do. When we have removed blocks to love in every area of our lives we can be divine vessels for God’s love and light and really begin making a difference in the world. The Removing Blocks to Love Tarot Spread can help with this.
Your task is not to seek for love, but merely to seek and find all the barriers within yourself that you have built against it.
The Tarot, being the mirror of the soul, can help us not only detect where we have barriers to love but also what the nature of those barriers is so that we can begin removing them.
While we are urged in all spiritual traditions to do the work and to perfect our being, in the Christian belief system, we also get to rely on God’s grace to help transform those areas we struggle with ceaselessly.
Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest.
When it comes to gaining clarity for our lives, we can rely on the Tarot if we also ask the Holy Spirit to illuminate our reading. We need to constantly be mindful of who is interpreting the meaning of the cards. Is it the ego or the Spirit?
“examine all things; hold fast to what is good”
When people come for a love Tarot reading, they come wanting to know if someone will come into their lives and give them what they need. Usually, it is their ego that craves these kinds of readings, not their soul. The soul wishes to be at peace and to be at peace means to draw on the Peace of God which surpasses all understanding. This peace is beyond the mind’s constant monkey chatter and the need to find guarantees for the future.
To have more love in your life, we need to surrender the ego’s neediness, start loving more and accept that we are love and come from love. When we do this, the love that shines through us will help us attract the Right One.
But let’s move on to see how we can use the Tarot to reflect back to us the barriers within that may be blocking love freely:
The Removing Blocks to Love Tarot Spread
1. Point of Pride
This shows you the area in life where you most often fall prey to pride.
“True humility is not thinking less of yourself; it is thinking of yourself less.”
― C.S. Lewis
It is said that pride is what turned angels to demons and humility what has the power to turn demons to angels.
2. Block in the Body
This shows you were potential old trauma has created a barrier to love.
“The emotion that can break your heart is sometimes the very one that heals it…”
― Nicholas Sparks
You just have to find it first, allow yourself to feel it completely and then hand it over to God.
3. Block in the Home
This shows you what must be resolved/forgiven to create a loving and harmonious home environment.
“He is happiest, be he king or peasant, who finds peace in his home.”
― Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
Most of the drama in our lives happens with our nearest and dearest. It is with our loved ones that we get a chance to have our rough edges sanded down if we humble ourselves and let the Holy Spirit guide our behaviour.
4. Block in Relationships
This shows you how your perception of romantic love may be creating blocks for true love to flow.
“The hunger for love is much more difficult to remove than the hunger for bread.”
― Mother Teresa
We often confuse our longing for the Love of God with romantic love.
5. Block in the Career
This shows you how you may be sabotaging your career by allowing fear rather than love to dictate your choices.
“And there’s also ‘To him that hath shall be given.’ After all, you must have a capacity to receive, or even omnipotence can’t give. Perhaps your own passion temporarily destroys the capacity.”
― C.S. Lewis
And first, we must open up to receive God’s calling. We must be open, surrendered and brave enough to trust God’s guidance over our own passion, and then to continue to trust that God will provide for our needs as we step onto the path of our life’s purpose.
