The prompt for this reading came from one of my Discord servers and is as follows:
“This week, check in with your divination tools about what burdens you might be carrying or things you believe are your responsibility, that you should not be—and what things you aren’t carrying or aren’t recognizing as responsibilities that you should be.”
What do I take responsibility for that I should not?
Grackle – You don’t have to “show up” for everything or be a part of everything.
Black Capped Chickadee – It’s your ego that drives you to take on too much. You need to feel like you’re doing enough, and you overfill your plate in an effort to fulfill that need.
Kiwi – Pick your battles and pick your projects, and let the rest go.
Take Away: Taking on too much is an addiction that needs breaking. Stop seeing it as an admirable quality and be more reasonable with what you can handle.
What is my responsibility that I have not claimed?
Ruby Throated Hummingbird – Taking advantage of a situation to get something you want rather than leaning towards conservation.
Zebra Finch – Find the grounding roots you need rather than allowing yourself to drift in limbo.
Flamingo – You are not taking care of yourself physically.
Take Away: Self care includes more than just dealing with internal demons and fostering inner growth. You have to take care of your body as well. It’s time to stop using your “change in situation” from the pandemic as an excuse for not exercising or eating properly.
How can I correct the imbalance between these two?
Ivory Billed Woodpecker – It’s important to look for the ways that letting go of overburdening yourself and taking better care of your body can improve your future. Don’t get so wrapped up in the now but look forward and look for the small opportunities that can build over time into large results.
