Today’s meditation was just over ten minutes long and was the fifth installment of the Foundations III series on the Balance app. It was a continuation of the Yoga Nidra technique, which I’ve mentioned before is a favorite of mine. I’m not noticing a lot of difference between the different installments in this particular technique, but I don’t really mind since I enjoy the body scans.
Today’s draw is the Four of Cups, which is traditionally a representation of dejection, refusal of assistance, contemplative moments, meditation, and feelings of apathy.
Sometimes feelings of apathy come from anxiety. You stress and worry and over time you feel this sense of disconnect because you just feel like it’s too much. This is how it happens with me sometimes. It gets to be too much and I shut down as a defense mechanism.
The problem is, in this “shut down” space? It’s so easy to fall into negativity and pessimistic habits. It’s so easy to say “this shit just isn’t going to work” and decide to give up and not even try. This can be especially the case when you feel like the world is trying to beat you down or is picking on you.
Today’s cards are a reminder to not let those feelings win. To remember that this is temporary, whatever “this” actually may be. The feelings, the situation, the problem, the trials… it’s temporary. And you -will- get through it.

Questions for October 1st and 2nd
What do I need to sweep out of my life?
Curiosity and Temperance
Now is a time to let your curiosity and eagerness for life to flourish. Sweep away the hesitation and moderation in this area of your life, and let in all the wonder around you to dazzle and spark interest and energy in your life.
What message have my spirit guides for me today?
Temptation atop Message, The Lovers atop The Hierophant
An opportunity to learn something new is coming, and you’ll be very tempted to take them up on the offer when it arrives.
Make sure that you remember not to fill your plate too full and make yourself unhealthy as a result. As tempting as the offer is, consider if it is worth a decline in health and happiness to take that opportunity offered, or if it wouldn’t be better to set it aside and see if it comes back around for you again at a better time in your life.
