When we've finally manifested our intention, we will be able to see changes in ourselves as well as in our environment. We must learn to embrace those changes and learn from them, as they are significant in how we develop as more complete human beings.
The spread and its inspiration are rather straightforward, so I'll get onto the Effects of Manifestation Spread now!
|What have you been able to create?|
The positions are not especially complicated:
Change to environment. These are the effects that your manifested intention can have on your surroundings.
Change in Self. These are the effects that your manifested intention can have within you. How you can/have changed as a person as a result of your efforts.
Next step forward. Where you can go from here, using your new experience as a starting point.
So let's have an example of this spread. Again, the cards here aren't for anyone's personal reading. They're just to illustrate how we can use the spread.
|"Shoot for the moon. Even if you miss, you'll land among the stars."|
I just can't get enough of this Linestrider action!
The Six of Wands as the effect we can see in our environment is our victory -- no matter how small it may be -- over adversity. Those around us are beginning to recognize our worth, and we are noticing how the praise of others can encourage us in turn.
The Knight of Pentacles as the effect we can see within ourselves is the emergence of a more methodical and practical personality. We have become more steady and willing to put in the work necessary for what we want to do precisely because we have seen the rewards of that work.
The next step forward, here the Three of Pentacles, urges us now to work with others to achieve a greater goal. The Knight showed us the new work ethic we developed when we manifested our intention for ourselves, but the Three looks outward, asking us to effect change with others. And the Knight's capabilities can really help contribute to that collaboration.
So, there ya go!
I truly hope this spread serves you well. And, of course, feel free to adapt it to any situation and let yourself be inspired to work with it how you choose.
