Today’s meditation was ten minutes long, and focused on planning for the future. A lot of times it seems we wait for the perfect time to start things. The “perfect time” to find a new job, the “perfect time” to take a vacation, or the “perfect time” to fall in love.
The thing is? There’s never a perfect time. There’s always going to be stress going on and distractions that can get in the way. Today’s meditation focused on this fact, and that if there’s something you want to do that might enrich your life, or something you want to experience that you are holding back on while waiting for the “perfect time”, maybe it’s time to consider that the perfect time is now.
We can always think up roadblocks and other issues to hold us back, but sometimes? It’s worth it to just take a leap and do whatever it is. Life will continue and adjust to fit in whatever it is, and you can adapt to accommodate it as well.
Today’s draw is the Six of Swords, which traditionally is a representation of harmony, cooperation and vitality, as well as humanity issues and limitations in the area of the mind, intellect, and communication. Because it comes after the conflict of the Five in this suit, it also holds representation for transitions and letting go of the bad to move on to something better.
As the young man in the card’s imagery and his trusty fox have trudged through the maze of sharp swords to get to a better place (the well), I have trudged through a lot of difficulty over the past year, and struggled a lot with being overwhelmed and over-burdened. This is a self-caused issue, as I am the one that filled my plate to overflowing, but that didn’t make it any less overwhelming.
As I move past the holiday rush and towards the new year, the appearance of the Six of Swords is an expression of the transition that I am making. Not just from the busiest time of year to one that is slower and more manageable, but concerning the restructuring of how I deal with the business over the next year in an effort to try something new and more manageable than I’ve been doing thus far.
