Today’s meditation was skipped yet again. I’ve considered removing this notation at the beginning of my blog posts since I skip so very often lately, but I think it’s important to keep it here to remind me of what I need to do, even on the days I don’t do it.
Today’s draw is the Six of Coins, which is traditionally a representation of generosity, accepting help, charity, kindness, and the act of creating better balance of the scales between the less fortunate and those that are.
A lot of times in life, I think we forget about how much we have. Especially, we forget about how much we’ve been given. Be it a smile from a stranger that lightens our day, a few bucks spent by the person in front of us in like to buy us coffee…. whatever.
The message I see here in today’s cards is that life isn’t always about money, and maybe? We should look at our fortune not through the eyes of monetary worth, but through the amount of joy and kindness that we’ve experienced in our lives.

You journey to emotional growth and a greater emotional intelligence is not a “quick fix” that you can just pick up and retain immediately nor control the speed of. Pushing will not make it go faster, just make the journey more uncomfortable.
What would be a more simple approach?

Focus on living your best life and allow that growth to continue on at its own pace. It’s great to be passionate about your growth, but things need to move at their own speed in order to stay on track, otherwise you end up veering off in different directions and having to course correct. Whereas, if you take things slower, there is less veering, and less need for those course corrections.

Reading Summary: With great amounts of speed involved (Seven of Coins atop The Chariot) one can bypass their more dominant emotional (Queen of Cups), mental (King of Swords) , and self serving (King of Wands) responses.
Take Away: It’s possible to do, but in order to do so, surprise is required, as is the ability to catch and retain your reaction from that moment of surprise before the emotions and brain hop in to tinge your perception.

I’m playing catch-up and I truly have no idea what self kindnesses that I did for myself on Wednesday.
