Surrender and Change

Today’s meditation was just over twelve minutes long and focused on surrendering to change.  That is to say, not fighting against it but allowing it to take you along and flowing with it, and thus reducing stress through an attitude of acceptance and surrender.

World Card -  Dark Mansion Tarot Today’s draw is The World card of the Major Arcana, meaning that it deals with an overall picture rather than one specific facet of the human experience.

The World card represents completion and the ending of a cycle as well as the movement of stepping through the end of a cycle into the next.   The World Card also holds within it the representation of one’s ascension from one level of development on to the next.

The message in today’s card is an echo of the meditation I did this morning.  That is to say, to not fight change.   Change is the birthplace of learning and growth.  Without it, the world sits stagnant.   But, when you relax into change instead of fighting it, you move forward and, along the way you “level up” in your growth.

Bonus Reading

Another #TarotForGrowthOctober prompt.

Question: How can I bring more balance into my life?

Tarot of Haunted House Reading Summary: Surrender is again in the theme for this reading as well, with mention of surrendering (Ten of Swords) to a new way of experiencing my emotions (Ace of Cups), and making wise choices (intuitive hit off the imagery of the Seven of Pentacles) that will foster sustainable growth (also Seven of Pentacles) and stability in the area of my finances and resources (Four of Pentacles).

And can I just say?  I really love the imagery in this deck.

Take Away:  With the shadow work I’m beginning and all of the drowns and closeness lately, I feel more open and tender lately, which is very difficult for me not to fight against.  This openness leaves me a bit more vulnerable to my worries concerning my finances and stability, but if I stay on track in saving the money I need to get saved for the financial obligations I have coming up at the end of the year, my worries will ease up and everything will be fine.

One thought on “Surrender and Change

  1. *Grins at the “leveling up” reference and just takes a minute to enjoy the positivity in this post* I know that all of these daily posts are supposed to be a positive message but this one…I dunno, it just feels good to me for some reason.

    As for the bonus reading and your vulnerability…I know that it’s difficult for you to be not only vulnerable but…open to your emotions. You spent so long hiding behind those walls and suppressing your emotions that when there is an abundance, there is always something of a struggle.

    I have to say that while not all of the emotions were positive and “good” ones, the drowns, the closeness, and even this shadow work that you’ll be doing, I think is a healthy thing. A good thing. The journey may be difficult, but the outcome will be good for you. Healing is good for you and it is a long time coming.

    You will do fine with the finances, love(because while you hate the word and it’s meaning, you -can- do moderation, especially when it comes to finances and spending) Tax time is always stressful but you always do okay and you will again. Busy season is coming up, afterall.

    I love you, beautiful. I’m so proud of you and so fucking in love with you.
    You are so very important. You are vital, essential…and you are adored.
    Always. All ways.
