Today’s meditation was ten minutes long, and focused on how one’s life and meditation practice is like a fractal. I… didn’t really get it, to be honest. I mean, I know what a fractal is. Essentially it’s when you have a specific design/shape that is created out of identical shapes (see example picture).
My problem lies in how this applies to the relationship between meditation and daily life? She did some explaining, but it didn’t make a lot of sense to me.
That said… I very much enjoyed the meditation’s method on focusing on the breath today, which was a step by step process of noticing where in the body you feel the breath, from nostrils to belly, and then as a whole throughout.
Today’s draw is the Six of Pentacles, which is a representation of harmony, cooperation, abundance, charity, and a cyclical balance of give and take in the area of finances, resources, and the material world.
Sometimes we are all on the giving end, and sometimes we all need to be on the receiving end, but in our journey through life this is truly more of a cycle. Even the most wealthy sometimes need a helping hand, and even the poorest of the poor are able to give of themselves to others in need.
This card’s appearance today is a reminder to me that it’s okay to ask for help. Sometimes I forget, and will struggle under the weight of trying to do everything myself and work it all out on my own. That is a completely unrealistic mindset, and yet I return to it again and again.
Some of the aspects of my life that I find this most prevalent are in my business, in my self care, in my finances, and in my resources (such as my grocery/food supplies specifically). It’s good (and in fact, important) to remember that there are venues out there to assist me in some of these areas when I struggle with them.
