Today’s meditation was skipped because I was super eager to get online with Gideon.
Here in the affirmation card, we have a reminder that we are more important than the things we need to do. This is a reminder I often need to hear, and combined with the Empress card, this is very clearly my cards calling me out on worrying about the business and work when I’m supposed to be wallowing in what is pretty much my last day off. Tomorrow, of course, will be a relaxing day, but it will also be the day that I hope back into work and start to catch up on the orders that have piled up while I was off work.
The cards today are an encouragement to make sure that I am getting the time off that I need (and deserve), even if it can sometimes be hard to allow that to happen.

Question: How do I overcome negative thoughts about myself?
Reading Summary: Remember all that you’ve gone through and the survivor that you’ve become (Three of Swords). Moving forward, work at focusing more energy into the concepts of lightheartedness, cheerfulness, and anticipation.
Take Away: It’s not enough to fight against that negative narrative in your head, you also need to remind yourself of all the good you have done and all that you have accomplished along the way.
When you allow yourself to acknowledge and accept that you’ve done well, it encourages more positive emotions and attitudes to step forward, creating a sense of adventure and rightness where before there were shadows in which that inner narrative could easily hide and whisper from.

End game struggles of moving on (Ten of Swords), and the need to find a meditative rest and balance (Four of Cups).
I need to relax. Let go and let things move forward without hindrance or pushing. Letting things just flow along at their own pace isn’t really one of my strong points. I can fake it now and then, but in truth, when it comes to myself and my own life, I most often find myself with the need to either push… or resist… far more often than feeling the relaxed and easy energy of letting things move at their own pace.
What opportunities am I missing as a result?
Achieving greater stability (Ten of Coins) and more joy (The Sun). This easy going skill that I struggle with would allow me to find a greater sense of stability and enjoy life more. It’s something I need to be conscious of, and work at bringing into my life, as it will also give my intuitive gifts a greater amount of freedom.
