Motivation Comes In All Forms

Today’s meditation was skipped.  I just didn’t do it.

Tarot of Haunted House and the How to Be a Wildflower DeckToday’s draw is the Knight of Wands, which is traditionally a representation of an active beta energy, personality, or person in the area of ones passions, drive, principles, and willpower. As with all wands, this isn’t about a physical thing, but rather about that inner spark of energy that “lights a fire under your ass” and “makes you tick”.

Sometimes?  That fire that’s lit under our ass actually comes from someone else. Today’s cards are a reminder that it’s okay to take inspiration from other’s kind words.  When someone says something that they admire about you, or speaks encouraging words to you, don’t allow them to roll off your back like rain off of a slicker.

Instead, take a moment to enjoy them and let them sink in.  Allow them to lift you up and inspire you. It’s okay to feel good about yourself, and those good feelings, no matter their origins, are a healthy way to spark your inspiration.

The #EmbraceYourAlterEgo2021 Challenge for Sacred Grounds Tarot Club
Questions for October 23rd thru 25th

Southern Gothic Oracle and Tarot of Haunted HouseWhat can I expect ahead of a merge between myself and my Alter Ego?
Bottle Tree, Justice atop Two of Cups

A time of kicking myself for my priorities as things feel out of balance, followed by a merging entanglement of two contrasting sides of the same coin that will most easily be sorted out through pause and reflection.

How will this merge help me heal?
Conch Shell and King of Wands

It will help you find your groove in both your passions and responsibilities, as well as in your need for self care activities and adequate rest.

How will this merge help me connect with my intuition?
The Mockingbird and Queen of Cups

As finding your balance always does, it will open up your intuition for easier communication, and allow a more fluid and comfortable connection with the different voices your intuition has to offer in its communication with you. Everything flows better when there’s not a bunch of crap in the way… that includes conflict and opposition between the alter ego and self.


Daily Self Kindness

I forced myself to have my smoothie even though I really wasn’t into putting in the work.  I’m trying to not allow my emotions to dictate so much of what I do…. or, more accurately, don’t do.

One thought on “Motivation Comes In All Forms

  1. I think though me being away allows you plenty of time for your prep work for the rush, it’s also causing you to feel a little more panicked than you normally would.

    I’m not able to soothe you as much as I otherwise might in both situations and it’s just not helping those feelings of overwhelm

    I’m here baby. Always
    Even when I’m far from home, I’m still right here
