Today’s meditation was ten minutes in length and focused on the differences between concentration and mindfulness. Concentration being a laser sharp focus on something, where as mindfulness is more of an awareness of everything in that moment.
I can’t say I really paid that much attention, in fact, I had to re-play the discussion part of it just to remember -what- the focus of the meditation was. This is because I was having a very good meditation where my focus was turned inward and on the breath.
Sometimes, if I get really into it, the rest of the world melts away and that was the case today. I find these times to be the most refreshing, actually, so it was really nice to be able to find that headspace for today.
Today’s draw is from the same deck as yesterday (cuz I forgot to switch them out) and came up as the Four of Cups along with a repeat of the Nine of Cups from yesterday. Neither of these cards were jumpers, as they both came out of the deck together.
The Nine of Cups, as you will remember from yesterday, is a representation of fruition and fulfillment, culmination, and consequences in the area of emotions, relationships, creativity, and intuition.
The Four of Cups is a representation of stability, shelter, ease, taking time to reassess, and stagnancy in the area of emotions, relationships, creativity, and intuition.
I still see the Nine of Cups as a carry over from yesterday. It clearly is stating to me “don’t get cocky” or overconfident. The underlying message has changed, though, to the Four of Cups.
Together, these cards are speaking of making sure I’m not reacting (or acting) out of boredom (just as yesterday they were speaking of impulsivity). Whether bored or feeling impulsive, the cards for both days come with the overlying message that says “don’t get cocky”. Take my time. Pay attention. Put some thought into my decisions and actions before I actually do or say anything.
