Today’s meditation was right at about ten minutes long today, and was a guided meditation with interval timer for my piriformis stretches.
The topic of today’s guided meditation was growth, and the discomfort that we go through as we grow. It was about how that discomfort is natural and, although uncomfortable, is a good thing. It’s through these growing pains that we develop into someone better, and become more than we currently are.
If, instead of accepting these growing pains and discomfort as a part of life, we instead turn around and hide from those uncomfortable feelings then we also hide from the experiences that provide us with growth and betterment.
Today’s draw is the Five of Wands, which is traditionally a representation of tests, trials, and conflict in the area of one’s drive, inspiration, willpower, and determination. This often translates into either struggles that cause you to be held back and you fight against that barrier, or impassioned conflict concerning what one believes in.
What stands out to me in this card’s image today is the fact that the snake is actually fighting using a wand. I mean… that’s remarkable right? Okay so when I saw this today, I thought…. “Hm, watch out for unexpected trouble.”
Although to be honest? I really didn’t expect “unexpected trouble” to come in the guise of a crazy ass 220 pound white guy with a rage issue screaming at me to go back to my “homeland” and take the “China flu back there with you” as he handed me my ass in a parking lot.
Thank you for the warning…. I’m sorry I didn’t listen more closely this morning.
DECK USED: TAROT OF THE LITTLE PRINCE
#DiscordTarotolicsNov2020 Challenge Prompt
Question: Think of a problem that needs solving and pull cards in relation to… Where To Begin / What Half Way Looks Like / How to End Things / Long Term Ramifications
Problem: Keeping up with the holiday rush
Where To Begin – Strength – Remember that you’ve got this. You are capable and strong, you have the inner stamina and strength to make it through, no matter how bad it gets. You run this gauntlet every year, and you always make it through just fine, if feeling a little ragged by the end.
What Half Way Looks Like – The Lovers – Half way there is a good time to remember that you need to include self care. It can be really hard to fit in those things that help you feeling refreshed when in the middle of keeping the chaos in line. But you need it. So don’t skimp on it.
How to End Things – King of Pentacles – Flush from the holiday rush, you will have your finances in a better place than they’ve been in some time. Make sure you invest that money wisely, save it wisely, and put it towards that stability and security you constantly crave.
Long Term Ramifications – Six of Swords – Somewhere better than where you’re at now. Positive advancement towards improvement and being “in a better place” financially. That is what you run this gamut for each year, after all.
