Sugar vs Vinegar… Flowers vs Thunder

Today’s meditation was skipped because I overslept my nap and my shrink’s appointment call woke me up. I then dove right back into bank and credit fraud department calls in an effort to fix my damned card.

Heretical Fates Tarot and How to Be a Wildflower DeckToday’s draw is the Justice card, which is traditionally a representation of repercussions and other themes that have to do with cause and effect, and can often indicate the involvement of law enforcement or the legal system within a situation.

Raise your words, not your voice, is advice that I really needed today.  It’s another way of saying “you attract more bees with honey than vinegar” and… considering how frustrating today was?  I very much needed the reminder to be nice.

The thing is? Sometimes being nasty works out. But more often than not? It just makes people balk and not want to help you. When calling in to customer service, if you’re getting a new person each time, they really have absolutely nothing to do with your last experience.  So when you then “come in hot” instead of being nice? To them, it’s out of the blue.  This is hard to remember when we’re frustrated or annoyed, but if the aim is getting someone to help, you definitely don’t want them balking on the other side of the phone.

Questions for November 17th

Enchanted Spell Oracle and Naibi di Giovanni VacchettaWhat am overthinking or do I tend to overthink frequently?
Intellect, Amore atop VI di Bastoni

You’ve spent too much time thinking about how others perceive you and wanting them to like you. You don’t have to overthink this. You’re a likable person, even if you don’t feel like that’s the case.

How can I find or create more inner piece for myself here?
Luxury atop Energy, IX di Dinari

Be grateful for all that you have and all those that are within your life rather than looking for more. New people and new friends are all well and good, but make sure that you aren’t forsaking those you care about and that care about you in the process.

Philosophical Question for November 17th
: Can a person without hope live a full and happy life?

Heretical Fates TarotReading Summary: By making oneself comfortable in the moment (Four of Wands), setting oneself apart from conflict and strife (Four of Swords), and fostering good relationships (Ace of Cups).

Take Away: Yes. It is possible for a person without hope to live a full and happy life.  The key to doing this successfully is to avoid the things that require hope to make one happy.

For example, if you avoid the things that make you wish for more or hope for better, and are happy with what you have and have a life filled with only good and healthy relationships, then there is less need for hope to lighten your load, as your load in life is already quite light.

This is an interesting answer for me, as I was certain the reply would be no.


Daily Self Kindness

I made sure to get in my smoothie, as well as my muffin and tea, even though it wasn’t easy today.  I kept getting distracted.  In fact, by the end of the day I had partially eaten plates of food all over the house as every time I tried to eat I either got interrupted or distracted.
