Tear It Down

Today’s meditation was skipped.

Tarot of Life - The TowerToday’s draw is the Tower card, which is traditionally a representation of destruction, chaos, upheaval, sudden change, and tearing constructs in one’s life down in order to make room for something new.

The Tower coming up today is a “get it done” card. It speaks of my plans to finish building the shelves today and get them attached to the wall and in place. It is a reminder that I need to continue to tear down and push aside what isn’t working in order to make room for what is or will.

It took a long time to get started on this project, in part because I was resistant to the chaos involved in the changes that needed to be made. Now that the chaos has ensued, it’s time to push it through till the end. You can’t raze a house partway to the ground in order to build one new one, you have to go all the way down to the foundation.

Questions for July 22nd thru 24th

Power Animals Oracle CardsWhat fear am I guided to abandon and leave behind?

Elephant – The fear that no matter how hard you try, some things are just not going to work out and are going to fail.

The fact is that failure as a part of life, and you learn things from it. It doesn’t always have to do with resolve and willpower. Sometimes it’s just the way it’s meant to be.

What am I asked to trust and have faith in about myself?

Cougar – Don’t allow your negative inner narrative to drag you down and make you feel “less than”. You are too hard on yourself, which means you are far more than what you see in yourself. This card indicates that you are asked to have trust and faith in yourself and your capabilities.

Where/how can I {begin to} embrace my freedom?

Antelope atop Koala – Stand back to listen more, and take action only when action is needed. You don’t have to have your finger in all of the pots, just make sure you’re watching over what’s happening around you so that when you need to step in you can be fully informed when you do so.

Hammock Day
– What can you do to relieve some stress for yourself today?

Tarot of LifeReading Summary: Don’t charge forward impulsively in your irritation (Explorer of Swords Rx) when things go wrong or become uncertain (The Moon). Instead, pause a moment to reconnect with what you want to have accomplished in the end (The World).

Take Away: In being headstrong and stubborn, I sometimes push when I should pause. These cards are an encouragement to take that pause, allow my irritation and uncertainty to cool, and make sure I’m still heading in the right direction before pushing forward.


Daily Self Kindness

I took breaks for food and water, even as I worked to get to where I wanted to get by the end of the day.  I’m really happy with the results of today’s labors, and I had issues with imbalances because I timed out my eating just right.
