Today’s meditation was twelve minutes long and took place in the bath tub, submerged to just my nose and mouth (well, and knees). It was not a guided meditation, but rather a time spent in that suspension state that I can often find when in water. It was very refreshing, but left me feeling a bit sleepy by the end.
The appearance of the Three of Cups today is a reminder to put a check on my resentment concerning having my helper in my space. I don’t know why I can’t seem to get completely comfortable with her being here in my home when she comes to do her job, but it’s always an irritant that she’s here. Always.
That said… I need the assistance with my business that she provides, especially at this time of year. Today’s card is a reminder to look on the bright side of the relationship and collaboration that I have with her, rather than doing the internal “fuss and grump” that her presence seems to always inspire.

Question: What can I do to quiet my inner critic?
Reading Summary: Keep in mind how far I have come and all that I have (Ten of Pentacles), while emotionally focusing less on how much further I could have gone. Instead, find that inner quiet needed to assure myself I am making the best decisions possible in the moment.
Take Away: My inner critic is something that I struggle with quite a lot. It always has something to say, and what it has to say is usually not all that useful other than to push me harder (which, honestly, is something I do in spades already). The cards indicate that to silence my inner critic, I need to focus more on gratitude for the now rather than focusing so intently on where I’m going and what I could do better. And that I need to remember that hindsight is 20/20, but that decisions I have made were the absolute best decisions accessible to me in the moment.
