The Avoidance Motivation

Today’s meditation was skipped.

Mystical Penguin Tarot - Two of SwordsToday’s draw is the Two of Swords, which is traditionally a representation of crossroads, difficult decisions, needing more information, seeking inward for answers, weighing one’s options, and sometimes avoidance.

The fact that the figure’s head is turned to the side in this image speaks to me of the last of the interpretations mentioned above.   Avoidance.

I see this card as an encouragement to consider what it is in life that is being avoided at this time.  Where are you procrastinating?  What is being ignored because you don’t want to face it head on?

It’s time to look at these things and consider why this avoidance is happening, rather than letting it continue on to the point where it could become detrimental.

Mystical Penguin TarotHorse – What can I do to build up my inner courage to live life with more honesty and integrity?

Three of Pentacles atop Queen of Wands – Continue to invite others into your passionate endeavors, as it’s not just supportive for you but nurturing for them as well.

Daisy – How can I (safely) insert more innocence and purity into how I view the world?

Four of Swords Rx – Be proactive about the things you want in your life. Lying back and waiting is not going to let these things in or encourage them to flourish. You have to actually act to receive these blessings.

Lapis Lazuli – How can I be more honest with myself about my good and bad traits?

Remember that these traits (both good and bad) are what make up the whole of who you are. You may not be happy with some of the traits… but you are pretty happy with who you are and who you are becoming.

Citrine – In what ways can I work at expressing myself more creatively?

Wheel of Fortune – Remember that you don’t have to be “steady as a rock” all of the time. It’s okay to be unpredictable now and then.

Ace of Wands Rx – Remember that not all new ideas are good ideas, and instead delve into the things already in your life the spark your creative passion.

Heather – How can I invite more good luck into my day to day life?

Ten of Wands – By not “tempting fate”. Like, for example, when you bring groceries in from the car. Take multiple smaller trips rather than overloading yourself to take one big trip. Sometimes bad luck steps in simply because you’re tempting fate to make a bad shit happen.


Daily Self Kindness

I got all of the earrings and bracelets done for the orders to ship out on Friday.  This will make things easier in the next few days, which can give me more time with Gid as well.

One thought on “The Avoidance Motivation

  1. You’re right about what could send you back to the edge of the pit. Little things are important and our shift in play has been really good for you.

    And its probably for the best we paused tonight. We don’t want a stressful prders day causing early and harsh drop.

    Now you can just think about how hard I’m gonna make you blow when its all done instead.

    I love you. You’ve got this baby. Hold onto me.

    And tell me what you are avoiding

    I love you so much
