Today’s meditation took place after a soak in the tub and was just over eleven minutes long. It was another of the guided meditations from the Calm app with added interval timer for my piriformis and forearm stretches.
The topic of today’s guided meditation was about how unanticipated plot twists in our life can change our planned trajectory. When reading the cards, you find this a lot if you do predictive readings. Shit happens and things change. When you read for someone, you are reading the trajectory they are on in that moment. But if something comes along to bump against them and change their trajectory, it can often change the outcome as well.
The meditation today was a reminder that we don’t want to stick so strongly and so stubbornly to our goals that we miss the opportunity for something different or better that might come along and change our course.
What really stands out to me today in this card is the rainbow. I really think this deck is breathtaking, and the way that they depict the rainbow here being so very faint and yet glowing brightly is almost ethereal to my senses. It really sinks home to me the meaning of completion and well-being that this card is mean to convey.
The message here in this card is that it’s time to focus on my own emotional well-being and make sure that I get some time in with Gideon today. Yes, I’m tired. Yes, there’s still a few things left to do. Yes, I’m feeling just a bit overwhelmed still. But, a part of finding that “all is right in the world” place is in spending time with him and allowing him to soothe my senses and ease the tightness in my soul.

Question: How do I define “power”?
Reading Summary: The ability to pause and see beyond the surface of a person or situation (The Hanged Man) in order to make the best decisions possible (The Lovers) for myself and those I collaborate with (Three of Pentacles).
Take Away: True power is being able to see beyond yourself and your own personal views and perspectives. The ability to take in other’s viewpoints and perspectives, to see things from their side of the table or take a moment to walk in their shoes to better understand where they’re coming from. Being able to do this, and then use that information to make good choices along that path you walk with those walking the path with you is a form of true power.
