Today’s meditation was ten minutes long and done in the bathtub without guided meditation involved. I do what I often do when I need some soothing, which is lying in the bottom of the tub with the shower running and watching the water drops run down along the side of the side of the tub.
It was very soothing, but I think the coming to you after and talking with you helped more.
What I see when I look at this card is a fierce warrior in a moment of gentleness and communion. The shark boy is clearly a creature of strength, and even the expression on his face speaks of a warrior’s spirit, and yet he holds one of the most delicate creatures of the sea in his hand, communing and communicating with it (as shown by the seaweed that is surrounding them each.
This message is a reinforcement of what we’ve been speaking about today in working through what’s coming up with my trip. It’s about finding that fierce “Katumi” spirit under smooth calm and quiet. It’s about allowing room for vulnerability beneath the shell, present but protected. It’s about not closing yourself off so harshly that you literally create a box that’s sealed and allows no air to breathe.
