When I attended a neo-shamanic training, one of the teachers addressed the momentum tunnel. The momentum tunnel is a metaphore for our lives being constructed by habits, beliefs, and dependencies that keep us in a set trajectory where shifts seem impossible. In order to escape the speedy movement through the tunnel, we either need to slow down or reduce the load so that we can make a safe turn. Recently I contacted my predictive reader and received bad news regarding my hopes to create an income from astrology and tarot services. I do believe in the view of my reader but will I let those news get me down and change my plans? In fact not, because I believe even more in my capacity to change my life into the direction I am envisioning. With the information from the reading, however, I am prepared to let the evolution take time. I received the Queen of Swords twice this past week: as my guide on my path and as a mode to reclaim my power on a professional level. I will need to hold on to my vision, take time to create space for the next steps, let the momentum slow down, and allow the universe to show me what is meant for me. It does not mean my longing is everything, it does not mean my path will be exactly like _this_, but it will mean that I am on my way and believe in my ability to create something that provides what I am looking for on an archetypal level.
