Snuffing Out Candles

Today’s meditation was skipped. (Not a surprise, right?)

The Somnia Tarot and How to Be a Wildflower DeckToday’s draw is the Nine of Wands, which is traditionally about boundaries, protection, resilience, and the testing of one’s strength and faith.

I get an intuitive hit off of the imagery in both of these cards and how they connect to each other.  This speaks to me in a voice of encouragement, and says that it’s okay to compartmentalize a bit, but not to turn my emotions off.

My business has grown exponentially over the past ten years. And… so have I.   But I forget sometimes that growth isn’t just about effort and work.  In fact, I often try to close off everything but the work and emotion, especially during this time of year when the holiday rush is upon me.

These cards are a reminder that I don’t have to protect myself from my emotions, nor protect my business from them. A bit of compartmentalizing while still allowing them some attention and freedom to breathe will serve me much better than snuffing them out by trying to close them away.

I made sure to take a few breaks today to spend time with Gideon in order to break up orders day a bit so that the subdrop wouldn’t just slam me out of the blue (hopefully)

One thought on “Snuffing Out Candles

  1. I hope that Mr Ray is going okay, baby.

    And unfortunately subdrop slammed you anyway, though not through any fault of ours….
