Balance In All Aspects

Today’s meditation was just over ten minutes long and was focused upon the benefits of using grounding to help in times of stress and chaos.

Honestly?  Grounding is one of my favorite activities, and helps me immensely not just in stress relief but in balancing out my energies as well.  I center and ground throughout the day without thought, and it only takes the amount of time it takes to take a breath.  But, my favorite type of grounding takes a bit more time and concentration.

This more extensive grounding feels best on raw earth with bare feet (just like the picture) and involves closing your eyes and sinking into the stability of the ground beneath you while imagining that roots grow from the parts of your body that touch the ground and dig deep into the earth.   Your body is imagined as the trunk of the tree that you have become, those roots digging deep beneath the soil and your energy/aura stretching tall and broad around you like the branches and leaves stretching wide and reaching for the sky, the sun, or the moon.

This type of grounding is extremely satisfying and calming.  It feels good to me, and regenerative, and is something I practice often.

The High Priestess - Tarot of the Little Prince Today’s draw is the High Priestess, which is a representation of the subconscious, intuition, and spirituality.  As a Major Arcana card, the High Priestess card often deals with the big picture” rather than any one specific aspect of humanity, and has been stalking me lately along with the Ace of Pentacles.

I don’t feel that I have fully delved into the message that the High Priestess is stalking me about, which… of course not.  Because if I’d managed to delve into it deeply enough to satisfy her, she wouldn’t still be stalking me.

That said, what I see in today’s card is a reminder to not let one’s intuition run away with you to the point that you forget about common sense.  If you sink too deeply into the subconscious, sometimes you can forget about the practical things like personal safety (and a lamb’s muzzle preventing it from eating your prized rose).  There has to be balance, even in this.

Question: What positive impact did I have on others this year?

Reading Summary:  I helped others see that there is opportunity (Ace of Pentacles) in change (Wheel of Fortune), and that it’s okay to be yourself (The Fool) while going after what’s right for you (Six of Swords), even if sometimes you have to move fast to get what you want (Eight of Wands)

Take Away:  The cards indicate that I have been a voice of encouragement and empowerment for others this year, giving them the “oomph” needed to do what appeals to them and go after the opportunities life throws at them.

One thought on “Balance In All Aspects

  1. *Grins as you give him that in depth explanation about grounding and remembers that they just talked about this the other day*

    I’m glad you’re taking the time for that during this time of rush and chaos, my love. And that you seem to be handling this rush ALOT better than most years. You also have kept in touch with ME alot better this year which I am most grateful for.

    And I suppose you will figure out the message the High Priestess has for you sooner or later. Your message too is a good one, not to get too lost in even the good things so that you lose sight of the practical and logical side of things. Especially when it comes to your personal safety.

    And the bonus…you are always a source of encouragement and support, my love. Not just for me but for anyone that you touch.

    I love you. I am so very glad the rush is almost finished and we will have the time to settle in together very, very soon.
