Realistic Means Based in Reality

Today’s meditation was skipped.

Animal-Wise TarotToday’s draw is the Knight of Wands (Komodo Dragon), which is traditionally a representation of a projective beta energy, personality, or person in the area of one’s drive, passions, willpower, principles, inspiration, or enthusiasm. This often translates into themes that have to do with rash behavior and a go-get’em attitude towards the things that matter to that person.

You know that phrase “fake it until you make it”?  Sometimes?  That’s how you make it.   And sometimes it’s not about faking it but about being genuine and realistic.

Today’s card is a reminder to be genuine with who you are and realistic about what you can do.  That doesn’t mean selling yourself short, but it means knowing yourself well.  Take some time today to look at where you feel limited and if that’s really the case?  Or if it’s an illusion.

Question for May 22nd and 23rd

Joyful Healing Clarity CardsHow do I define strength?

The ability to detach (Numb) from one’s fear in a crisis (Afraid) so that you can lend support to others (Support) and take action to that will get others moving (Move Your Body).

Some people freeze in a crisis, unable to think clearly or act quickly. One of the ways in which I see strength and define it is in those that are able to move quickly past the moment of shock in a crisis, and into action to help not just themselves but others as well.

When do I need to be strong?

When you have an inner calling (Shivers) towards something that you are curious about or think you will enjoy (Curious), instead of holding back in order to punish yourself (Nurturance), you need to cut yourself a little slack and do them (Go to the Beach).

Too often in my life I have been taught that strength equals cruelty to oneself and letting go of the things you want to do instead of doing them. Now at this point in my life I am beginning to learn that it takes more inner strength for me to do these things than to set them aside and ignore them.

The #ConnectWithYourDeckChallenge Prompt by E Roebuck-Jones
Questions for May 21st and 22nd

Animal-Wise TarotWhen do I give more to a relationship than I should?

Four of Swords (Chickadee) and Two of Cups (Daddy Long Legs) – When you know you need some time to rest and recover, but you instead give that time to others.

When is my happiness impacted by a relationship?

Five of Wands (Gecko), Queen of Wands Rx (Crocodile) atop King of Pentacles (Gorilla) – when there’s a conflict in values or principles where either or both parties involved are steadfast in their view, and thus refuse to connect and see the other side and where the other person is coming from.

Today’s post is a catching-up post, and so I’m not entirely sure what I might have done as a self kindness today.
