Today’s meditation was a little over ten minutes long, and focused along the thread of yesterday’s pull of the day and bonus reading. It focused on the practice of kintsugi, which is a Japanese practice of using liquid precious metal (gold, silver, or platinum) and/or lacquer dusted with powdered precious metals to repair broken and cracked pottery.
It discussed how even when you are feeling at your most broken, it is possible to pick up the pieces from these experiences and create something beautiful with them.
Today’s draw is the Ten of Cups card, which is a representation of completion, ascension, regeneration, and renewal in the area of creativity, emotions, relationships, and the intuition. This theme often portrays itself as harmony and bliss in one’s relationships.
Today’s card is a reminder to acknowledge and consciously value the good times. Be grateful for them, because like all cycles, that time of bliss and harmony doesn’t last forever and should be wallowed in and celebrated while you have it in your grasp. I have very much enjoyed all of the extra time I’ve been able to spend with you lately. I know that the holiday rush is about to start, and that is going to change for about six weeks or so, but I want you to know… spending this time with you is amazing and I am grateful for every single moment we have together.

Question: How can I better release self-doubt?
Reading Summary: Be active in focusing on what you really want (Four of Wands and Knight of Cups), don’t allow yourself to get bogged down by material concerns (Four of Hazards), because when you focus to hard on financial concerns it puts you in a bad place emotionally (Page of Hazards and Five of Cups).
Take Away: There are times when I get really wrapped up in my finances and how I feel things -should- be going. I lose track of what’s really important to me as my focus narrows down to numbers, bank accounts, bills, and my drive to pay off my mortgage. All of this focus on these areas creates a good deal of stress and self-doubt concerning my capabilities to thrive and my self worth. If I want to release that self-doubt, I need to let up on how hyper-focused I become on that area of my life.
