Love Your Work ~ Eight of Pentacles

By Caroline :: :: 29 comments

It’s often said that the Eight of Pentacles just means work, but it means so much more. It means finding work that is your bliss.

Let me let you in on a secret: you are here with a special calling and you have great work to do in this life. There is a good reason why you are here and deep down you do know what you want to do with your life. You’re gifted and those gifts are on purpose.

I used to believe that it was impossible to love your work, and except for a lucky few, most of us were destined to suffer. I believed that work wasn’t meant to be fun, so I stayed in a job I hated. After all, I thought, why would you get paid for doing something enjoyable?

So what if I told you that it doesn’t have to be this way? I found my bliss and not a day goes by when I don’t wake feeling immensely grateful and excited about another day. You can too. The work you love is waiting for you and I can help you find it.

And here is the best news: you will likely find your soul mate when you are on your true path. You just need to become the real you so they can find you. They are looking for *you*. Not you pretending to be someone else or trying to live up to someone else’s expectations. They are searching for the real, authentic YOU.

Deep down, your soul knows why you are here. It can just be difficult to remember sometimes but I can help. Together we can find the quiet dreams within you, make sense of your deepest pain, and reconnect with the real you. There’s probably a part of you that has been lost or hidden for too long. It’s time to bring it back and I can show you how.

Post your dreams and your fears about following them on this blog and I will help. You can also email me or come for a chat. You don’t need to spend even one more day in a job your hate or a life that isn’t working for you. People need and are waiting for your great work. And your special someone is waiting for you. So hurry up and don’t make them wait any longer!

Love, Caroline

    I asked myself recently what would I do if money was no object. The answer was travel and adventure. Get as much world experience as I could before I died or got too old. Is it possible to have a job that incorporates these things? Sounds too good to be true! Thats for other lucky people who are travel writers etc isn’t it? Plus I have to stay put and provide for my children. How do I do both, be responsible and secure and take the risk and live the dream?

      If money were no object I would enjoy my kids and the fine life we would live, having one adventure after another and maybe find a welcoming home, eventually, in between adventures. Happy dreaming and Aloha.........

    I was blessed with a natural creative bent but have found it difficult to choose just one direction so for now I try to balance gardening, dress/costume making/teaching, astrology, woodwork, counselling and friendship – noted cooking is NOT my forte :) At 66 I wonder which one will prevail

  4. Bronwyn says:

    I need to find some way to break through the barrier of low self-esteem when it comes to finding my direction. People have more faith in my abilities than I do. I know I want to create and generate my own income. I just dont know how. I have lots of ideas but I always seem to manage to can them. I think I really wouldn’t be able to succeed or it conflicts in some way within me.

      Bronwyn, Ditto! I too feel this frustration of “seeming” inability and no direction. I have tried to find but simply have no understanding.

      I love life and most that goes with it, I am very arty, could turn my hands at loads of things. Yet it’s such an effort to get going. I wish I could have drive and ambition!!!

    I am finally listening to this advice. After so many years of fighting to stay in a career that I thought was what I wanted to do, I walked away after realizing that I was chasing after the wrong thing. The universe was letting me know it but I refused to listen. I am now planning to pursue my passion and I haven’t felt this good about pursuing something in a long time. I am so scared at times but the idea to turn around and get back on the original path I was on is like suicide to me. I can’t go back. I have to trust in myself and in the universe that I am now on the best path for me.

    Caroline, I was reading about not recognising your soulmate because you are always searching for an aspect that fits your idea better. Well I think I have a soulmate standing in front of me but every time I try to move on in that regard, I find that I keep letting the physical drawbacks stop me. Yet this person is the best, kindest person I have ever met and who only sees my potential and no flaws. I so wish I could know if it not meant to be or if he is actually the one!!

    I’m just waiting for the right moment accepting what might come in the meantime while I wait. I have helped a number of people see things differently to help them cope better in these changing times, as you have in such a beautiful way.

    I’m feeling confused.I lost my husband of 25 yrs to cancer in Feb of 2012.So, here I am one year later, and I made a promise to myself that I could be sad and mourn and be as quiet and still and in the moment as I could.But now I feel like I’ve forgotten him.Something makes me sad, when I realize that yes, I made it through a year without him.I did it.That has been my only goal (emotionally anyway) for these last 12 months.Now I feel lost, I have no goals to work towards for the future. I feel stuck in the crossroads.I’m thinking about other men, and old lovers, but no one compares to my husband, nor will anyone ever measure up...I know that, I just feel like I have a cloud hanging over me.I’m happy and cheerful most of the time, but there’s such a hole in my heart.life just doesn’t seem very “lively” right now.HELP?

      Hi Wendy,
      so sorry for your loss,in time you will heal.Know that no one can be replaced, each person that enters our life fills our heart with their unique essence. The love will always be the same that is the gift they leave with us to remind us of their love and that special relationship we held with them.
      How I cope with loosing the ones I have loved is to be grateful that for a time I had that time to enjoy that physical relationship, they never go away, each time you think of them they are here with their love to help us w cope with their loss, love and blessings, Melodie

    Caroline...I woke up to this card in my email and it had me in tears. I went to bed thinking of what God has instilled into me and wants me to become, thus far ive had many encounters which left me confused but after reading this I know I’m here for that purpose. Your readings are the most accurate I have ever had and I want to humbly say “thank you” for everything. You made me smile this morning and now I’m on my way to discovering what I’m supposed to do/be. Much love and light to you always Caroline.

    Love Kerry-Kim

    I lost my mother a year ago and in grief I thought I had found what I wanted to do. I made all the steps I needed to take but it is not going to plan. I feel lost and I feel like I’ve let my mother down as I know she would of loved to have done this with me.

    My passion was always to become famous and as I grew older I realised that I belonged in the music industry. It’s like I feel I am the missing piece they have been looking for! It feels so true and right to me. Is my thinking crazy or will this become my reality?
