Accepting Unpredictability

Today’s meditation was skipped.

Tranquil Tarot - Wheel of FortuneToday’s draw is the Wheel of Fortune card, which is traditionally a representation of unpredictability, chance, luck (both good and bad), cyclical patterns in life and nature, and at times… destiny.

In this imagery, what I see is all the “wild cards” that life can throw at you from inclement weather to ball-and-chain feelings, winding paths where you can’t see around the next bend, and surprise accidents that suddenly change your perspective.

Life throws curve balls at us every single day.  Sometimes, we adapt without even realizing we’re doing it, rolling with the punches without so much as a blink. Other times, those curve balls trigger a fight response and we balk, and that’s when things become unpleasant.

How amazing would it be if we could roll with -all- the punches. If we never balked and struggled under change.  How smooth life would become if we didn’t look at the unpredictable shifts in life as problems and obstacles, but simply another joyful part of the ride.  Could you imagine? That’s what today’s card is about.

Questions for The World – Day 23

Reminder: The Journey – “Work on finding balance between your practical self and your emotions. Don’t allow logic and your harsher inner narratives to dominate the conversation.

Seeker Tarot (Oracle) and Tranquil TarotHow can I use my lessons of this Journey to benefit those around me?

Expand Your Universe atop Open Your Mind – By allowing yourself to see outside your negative inner narrative, you are able to see others (and the world at large) more clearly, and in turn then invite them in to be a part of your world.

What am I manifesting for myself by staying true to this Journey?

An Unfair Judgement Rx and Weave Your Reality – It’s true that what you focus on is what manifests in your life.

So, if you continue to judge yourself unfairly, it is that negative energy that permeates your life and it weaves a negative reality for you. By the same turn, if you lean to intuition and self kindness, you can weave a positive reality for yourself instead. Like any other addiction or habit, pessimism and negativity must be dealt with through dedication and diligence.

Question: The project of the deck shelves has been stalled lately. How can I get back on track?

Art of Pixar Postcard Set and Tranquil TarotReading Summary: You get what you give, so focus on your work and creating the outcome you want to happen, and keep in mind how much lighter you will feel once it’s done.

The postcard at the top speaks of overwhelm, and there is a color correlation between Buzz Lightyear’s suit at the bottom of the postcard, and the greens in the Eight of Pentacles. The speaks of looking at the project as if it is a big huge project, which you are finding overwhelming.

There’s blue throughout all four of the cards on the table, speaking of how everything connects together here, an indication of looking at the big picture. You can look at the big picture, or you can choose to connect to one small thing at a time, as is indicated by the pinks and purple hues hinted at throughout the postcard and on Buzz Lightyear’s helmet that are then reflected in the Justice card.

The yellow in the Fool is then even more sparingly flecked throughout the image above in the postcard. This speaks of picking and choosing smaller tidbits of the larger project, rather than looking at it as a whole, and how much easier and lighter it can feel if you approach the project in this manner.

Take Away: You have forgotten that you need to take things in small bites. Seeing in your mind the goal completed can keep you on track, but don’t then look at that project as a whole needing to be done. Take small steps, one at a time, and soon you’ll get there without realizing how far you’ve come. Use that relief of a goal finished as a carrot on a stick to keep you motivated.


Daily Self Kindness

I took someone with me when I went to check on the parking garage after getting reports of car alarms going off down there.  Whoever broke in was apparently already gone (or at least we didn’t find anyone and neither did the cops when we called them in) but a handful of cars had been broken into.
