Chosen Topic: My unfounded feelings of trepidation concerning the upcoming holiday rush.
The Face of My Challenge
Six of Feathers
Change. The face of my challenge is change and the shift of things from one situation to another. I’m feeling a good deal of discomfort and a need to fall back on old habits. These old habits are unhealthy and do not serve me at all, but are simply what is familiar. Instead, I need to make sure I continue to move forward instead of backsliding.
The Crux of What Hounds Me
Ace of Roses
Concern over undoing all the new progress I’ve made this year. I’ve grown so much over the year, and I am aware that that new emotional growth I’ve been fostering for the past few months is still tenuous and new. I worry that the new beginnings I’ve been fostering are still too delicate to withstand the savage storm of the holiday rush.
What is real about this?
Three of Crystals
I have people to help me and collaborate with me when I need them. I am not in this alone. I have the support I need and I need to include them in the process from the beginning, not pull them in later when things are chaotic and a mess. Allow these people in my life to help so that everything doesn’t rest solely on my shoulders.
What is wrong about this?
Two of Roses
My discomfort and struggle with leaning into those that love me and want to support me. As mentioned above. They want to support me. They want to help. This discomfort and guilt is useless and is completely unfounded. I understand that this is one of my shadows, and one I will have to deal with over time, but for now I need to keep in mind that these feelings come from within and are not reality.
Where do I need more info?
Six of Crystals
It would be a good idea to delve into in what ways others are willing to help me and be proactive about getting that help… Rather than waiting until I need it and sticking them with tasks that they would prefer not to deal with. This is about even distribution of the work load so that the help that they are offering is used to its best advantage, and it is a suggestion that has recently come up in a previous reading as well.
What can I do?
Ace of Crystals
Focus on the task at hand, and accept that it’s going to be different this year… and that’s OK. It can lead to better things.
