It’s Gonna Be Okay

Today’s meditation was just over fifteen minutes long, and was an exploration on where your mind goes when it strays during meditation, and how to bring it back.

It was a little different than most of my meditations, because you actually focus on those thoughts a moment in order to label them and pull yourself outside of them before returning to your centering and focus again.   It was not particularly relaxing, but it was definitely educational.

Eight of Cups - Tarot of the Unknown Today’s draw is the Eight of Cups, which is a representation of letting go in the area of one’s emotions, relationships, creativity, and intuition.  This card often presents itself with themes that involve disappointment, as well as situations that involve abandonment or withdrawal.

When I look at this card today it is a reminder to me that sometimes you just have to let go.  It’s impossible to control every aspect of life, and impossible to please every person you come in contact with.   As much as we want to be perfect, no one and nothing ever is… and that is what “perfect” actually is, is the acceptance of flaws and imperfections.

As someone who focuses too intently on everything I do being “perfect”, this is a message that I really need to hear now and then.  Just as a reminder that it’s okay to let go of that ideal and just have some fun and breathe now and then.

Question: How can I recognize when negativity is in my head rather than in reality?

Rust Belt Arcana Tarot Reading Summary:  When everything is feeling topsy turvy (Wheel of Fortune) or like it’s the end of the world (The Tower) and feeling defensive or as if I’m “not enough” to defend what’s mine (Seven of Wands).

Take Away: You know that saying about when it looks too good to be true then it probably is too good to be true? These cards relaying that message, but in the sense that if it looks too bad to be true, then it probably is too bad to be true.  The sassafras in the end card also relays that in order to overcome these moments, counting my blessing is a good way to calm down those internal negative thoughts.

  1. Perfection is in the eye of the beholder, and in my eyes, you are absolutely, without doubt…perfect. My perfection.

    Because of what’s going on with the business and that need you have to strive for absolute perfection, this message coming up today makes perfect sense. The need that I know you have to make things “perfect” is very likely niggling at you and it’s good to remember that sometimes you have to just…let it be okay that you have that ONE negative review amidst hundreds. I know that letter is messing with you baby, and it’s a ridiculous standard if that was in fact NOT an error, which I still think has to be…

    Yesterday was crazy busy for you, and I miss you terribly. Just try to keep your head above water, beautiful boy. Try not to panic at the volume coming in and take things one breath at a time.

    I love you man. Always
