Today’s meditation was just over ten minutes long, and was focused on auditory input during meditation. That is to say, it focused on letting in external sounds and incorporating them into your meditation rather than trying to block them out. I’ve done this meditation before, and it’s been very relaxing. Unfortunately, I had a hard time staying focused today, so I guess that leads back to less serenity and more “mental bench presses” for today’s meditation as a whole.
Today’s draw is the Page of Cups, which is a representation of a receptive omega energy, personality, or person in the area of emotion, creativity, relationships, and intuition. This often comes across as the spark of new creative opportunities, curiosity, and learning through intuition.
When I saw today’s card, what I saw was the opportunity to share my creativity with others. This is something I do through my jewelry design all the time, and through our literary RP as well. The appearance of the Page of Cups in today’s draw is a reminder of the pleasure that I receive in the sharing of my creativity with others.
During this time of year I have a habit of closing down, my focus narrowing in tighter and tighter until I am blocking out everything else. The message in today’s draw is to be aware of this tendency and take care to not allow my focus to narrow too much.

Question: What did I discover about myself this year?
Reading Summary: In times of struggle and healing (Ten of Swords), no matter how chaotic things are if I make the choice (Two of Swords) to work with others rather than retreating into myself (Three of Pentacles), the end result of those moments is better (Judgement) than when I try to ride it out on my own.
Take Away: As mentioned earlier in this post, when it comes to times of stress and struggle, as well as the healing that comes afterward, my natural defense mechanism is to close myself off and retreat inward. One of the things I have discovered, though, is that this is not healthy for me. A better route, that is healthy and healing, is to fight that urge and make the choice to reach out to others for support instead.
This doesn’t, of course, negate my natural defense response… but it does give me perspective on a healthier option to explore once I realize I’ve begun closing myself off.
