Today’s meditation was ten minutes and seventeen seconds, and was a simple body scan that started at the crown of the head and moved slowly through each body part, as well as the chakra associations involved with the center line of the body.
I often find that these types of meditations make it much easier for me to stay focused rather than catching myself in a constant tug of war between focusing on the breath and my mind beginning to wander.
All in all, I found the meditation very relaxing, although I’ve noticed that on a physical level I’ve been having some problems with my left hip just recently. I’ll have to discuss it with physio/chiro doc when I go in next Tuesday. It’s not the right side, so there’s no pins or rods or anything to worry about, but there’s definitely something going on on that side.
Today’s draw is the Three of Wands, which is a representation of growth, small gains and emerging progress, group efforts, and the realization of successes in the area of one’s passion, drive, and ambitions.
This card has shown up today to remind me to be nice, and grateful, for the help I have. Specifically, in my business. It is no accident that this card has appeared on the same day that my helper has come back from a week away.
As I mentioned yesterday, I’ve felt a little resentment lately about her presence in my home. I don’t think that this has anything at all to do with her, but rather with the fact that I needed a little alone time and just wasn’t getting any. Between L and J always being around, and the helper coming, and the housekeeper visits, I wasn’t really getting the alone time I need in order to stay balanced.
I realized this last night, and that along with seeking a more mindful and grateful mindset where she is concerned seems to have really helped. I even taught her a new skill today. Something that she can work on at home now and then when her school schedule is too strained to make it out this way as often as I’d like, or our schedules just won’t match up. It meant sending some supplies home with her, but I’m okay with that in this case.
So there you have it. Better use of that area of ‘group efforts’ and a more mindful, grateful attitude about her presence.
I love you.
