Today’s meditation was skipped. No excuses or even any real reason, to be honest. I just didn’t do it.
Today’s draw is The Tower card, which is traditionally a representation of the calamity and chaos of sudden, unexpected upheaval and change. The Tower card reminds us that for new good things to be built, the old and rotted remnants of what once stood must first be torn down.
The thing is? Sometimes when that upheaval happens, it hurts. Surprises can hurt, destruction can be painful, especially if you’re needing to let go of something that, although has served its purpose and is no longer needed, you are still clinging to tightly.
These wounds can make it a struggle to move on, and healing requires time. Sometimes, healing moves smoothly, but not always. Today’s cards are a reminder that sometimes this healing can take time… and that is perfectly okay. There’s no set time limit, and no deadline. The best healing takes place at its own pace.
