Not All Prizes Are Physical

Today’s meditation was just over ten minutes long and was one of the guided meditations on the Calm app with an added interval timer for my piriformis stretching. I can definitely “feel it” that I haven’t been doing my hip flexor stretches recently.  Although things loosened up quickly, getting there was far more painful than usual.

The focus of today’s meditation was about learning how to focus on gratitude instead of the harshness of judgement.  It spoke on how it is through a practice that involves gratitude that we combat negative inner narratives that can often rise up to be directed at ourselves or others.

Twilight Rabbit Tarot and Thera-Pets Emotional Support Animal CardsToday’s draw is the Ten of Passions (Cups), which is traditionally a representation of emotional satiety, and euphoric contentment.  It is the card that speaks of having obtained one’s heart’s desire and wallowing in that feeling of completion.

A meadow full of happy bunnies wallowing in the grass and a message from the Thera-Pets cards saying it’s okay to be scared, you’ll get there anyway?   What I see here is a reminder to keep your eye on the prize.

Not the monetary prize.  Not the responsibilities and work…. but the prize your heart truly desires.  The wishes and dreams.  Make sure that you’re not forsaking these things, and don’t let your self doubts and fears swerve you from trying to obtain them.

 Reading Summary: You’re a fast learner and damn good at the things you choose to put your effort into (Eight of Pentacles). Hold back on the “get it, get it” and do a little research first (Page of Wands). It will help you feel more connected to the process (The Star).

Take Away:  At the moment it’s more important to focus on learning and practice than going after anything concrete and taking actions to chase those dreams.  You need to feel more connected to your ideas, your creativity, and your interests.  Allow yourself the time to learn more, and hone your skills.  Then when you decide to act?  You’ll enjoy it more instead of feeling stress bred from a sense of disconnect.

Question
: What gifts does the peak of the spring season bring with it for me?

Twilight Rabbit TarotReading Summary: Time with Gideon (King of Passions). As the spark of spring’s energy begins to shift (Death atop Ace of Clover), you will find yourself pushing for more of the time together you both enjoy (Jack of Clover).

Take Away: The peak of spring season and shift of energy extending into summer’s beginnings will bring with it a passionate enjoyment of time spent with Gideon on the things that we enjoy the most.  More time together. More time playing.  More time. 

It is important to not just pursue this time, working to make room for it whenever I’m able, but also to savor it mindfully and with a grateful heart.

Daily Self Kindness

Still playing a bit of catch up at the moment. Although… considering this was Monday, I’m pretty sure I didn’t do anything at all to be kind to myself other than ask for help from the girls in getting orders and packaging done.

    And just know that I am thankful for all the time I’ve gotten with you lately. I am always appreciative of the time I get to spend with you. You make me so damn happy
