The Overflowing Plate

Today’s meditation was interrupted by the fact that my neighbors across the street apparently have absolutely no clue what social distancing means and had a huge party complete with a balcony full of people and a yard full of kids.

On Thursday, they had a similar gathering, but this one was ridiculously bigger.   I mean, I get it.  Being stuck inside sucks, especially in the middle of spring when the weather is nice and the sun is shining.   But seriously?

Anyway, yeah.  No meditation.  I will try to fit one in before I sleep tonight and hope I don’t fall asleep before I finish the meditation.

King of Flame - King of Wands - Stolen Child TarotToday’s draw is the King of Flame (King of Wands), which is traditionally a representation of a projective alpha energy, personality, or person in the areas of one’s passions, drive, and ambitions.  This often translates into an authoritative energy filled with confidence to go after what they want and the leadership and charisma to confidence others to join in their endeavors.

What really stands out to me today in the imagery of this card has to do with the expression upon the child’s face combined with the flaming crown the child wears and matching infinity above the head of the lion.   What comes to mind as I saw this card this morning was the Shakespearean phrase “uneasy lies the head that wears the crown”.

Responsibility is hard… and sometimes? It just plain sucks.  That includes responsibilities to myself, if I’m honest.  You’re right.  Even if I’m not doing the monthly challenges regularly, I need to make sure I’m doing this daily draw and finding the positive message in the card.    So, I’m going to cut back, and only add in a challenge or two in these daily posts when I feel inspired to do so for a bit.

I think with all the stress going on, I have been trying too hard to push myself into my passions in order to ignore my stress and anxiety.  That backfired a bit and I fell behind on my posts as a whole.   I’m going to try and turn that around now by cutting back on my “responsibilities” concerning how much I am doing.

Incidentally, I have also chosen to forgo using the Healing Meditation Deck for the rest of the month for my daily pulls.  Although they work great as a bit of added details and guidance in a reading (such as my Self Care Saturday readings), they don’t fit the purpose of these “finding the positive message” card of the day posts.


One thought on “The Overflowing Plate

  1. Good. I didn’t think that deck was really doing it for you(or maybe it just wasn’t doing it for me) I’m glad that you decided to switch out and I like seeing this deck back in use because I know that you connect to it so very well. And I think you are able to find the positives easier in this deck than in the previous one as well.

    I’m also glad to see you doing this today, even if it’s just the daily draw and your self care saturday posts, that’s okay for right now. As long as you get this one in, I’m happy with it.

    I’m also absolutely over the fucking MOON for you at the moment and soaking in that thrill of you and your drown so yeah…so good, babyboy. SO good.

    I’m sorry that you didn’t get your meditation done but at least we found a way to relax you, hm?
