Standing Up

Today’s meditation was just under ten minutes long and was an unguided sort of “pause and breathe” session.

Trionfi Della Luna and Thera-Pets Emotional Support Animal CardsToday’s draw is the Five of Swords, which is traditionally a representation of conflict, tests, and trials in the areas of communication, intellect, education, thought, and logic. This often translates into things that have to do with arguments and misunderstandings.

Sometimes? It can be hard to stand up for yourself.  Especially when feeling down in the dumps or struggling with your own inner demons and negative inner dialogue.

These cards are a reminder that even in those times?  It’s important to stand up for yourself anyway and not let people treat you badly. Don’t be a doormat and a victim just because you’re having a confidence crisis in the moment.

Show them that you deserve more. Don’t let them treat you like trash. You’re worth more than that.

Таро Темного Пути

The power of the spirit.

The Magician – You have all the tools, knowledge, and ingenuity at your disposal to do whatever you want to do. You  have the ability to learn quickly what you don’t know, and adapt as needed to fulfill what is needed to continue forward toward your goals. Your spirit is… indomitable.

What foundation am I building upon, or what am I building towards?

Two of Pentacles – Balance. You have been focused on finding a better work / life balance for the past couple of years now, and although the trek has been slow, you are getting there and doing a little better with each month that passes.

What choices are or have been empowering me?

Knight of Swords – Movement. For a good part of this year you have felt stagnant and struggling. Over the past few weeks, this energy has shifted and energy is flowing once more allowing for movement and a charge forward towards your goals. This energy is a bit aggressive, but at the moment that is only empowering you further.

What emotions or feelings can make (or have made) me stronger?

King of Cups – This is a reference to your connection with Gideon and the fact that you look up to him and how adept he is at understanding emotions and nurturing them. With his help, you are learning to better understand and interpret your own emotions, and how to deal with them in a more healthy manner.  He helps you find steadier footing in the emotional confusion that comes from not burying your emotions as you have in the past, and this help from that corner makes you stronger.

What is a personal strength I can always rely on?

Three of Wands – Creatively, you will always have ideas to discover and new projects to explore. Sometimes this feels overwhelming, but it is a personal strength that allows you to always bounce back from failures and setbacks, and provides you with the ability to be the master and captain of your own future.

Topic for October 15th
: Draw or write something free form inspired by the card(s).

Trionfi Della LunaOnce upon a time there was a little poppet in a shop who could only hold one or two pins at a time (Temperance), as he was only the size of the pad of a person’s thumb.

He was never chosen by the customers to be used because of his size, and people thought that if a little one could do, then a big one could do better (Two of Coins).

He sat on a shelf in the shop for a very long time with hope in his heart (The Bluebirds), waiting for the person to come along that might see the potential he holds (Ace of Wands).

Then one day a witch filled with the spark of purpose came in to the shop (Queen of Wands), and the poppet knew that this was the one he had been awaiting for so long (Seven of Coins).

She needed his help to aid a child stricken with sickness, and nurture that child back to health (Queen of Coins), and she purchased him on the spot.

She took him home with her, and in her wise and cunning ways, directed him to his path and purpose (Queen of Swords). Which he fulfilled with joy and enthusiasm, and the young child thrived as a result (The Sun).


Daily Self Kindness

I took a nap today.  I really didn’t want to, but after the drive up north and back, I was so tired.  Instead of fighting it, I laid down for a bit and felt much better as a result.

One thought on “Standing Up

  1. I cannot imagine you not standing up for yourself (or anyone else who needs it). It’s just not who you are. But if ever you can’t, I’m right here to do it for you.
    Mine. I love you

    Great story baby. And as always, I’m here for whatever you need.
