Finding Stability

Today’s meditation was attempted, but not quite there.  I did the laying down and even the closing my eyes and breathing slow, but my brain wouldn’t calm to the point needed to actually feel like I accomplished meditating.   I did try, though.

Autumn Miss Tarot - Four of PentaclesToday’s draw is the Four of Pentacles, which is traditionally a representation of conservation, security, stability, acting the miser or spendthrift, self-inflicted stagnancy, and control.

In the imagery today’s card, what catches my eye today is that the crown the figure wears helps in holding the coin atop his head. Sometimes we all need a little help to feel stable. In the card, the figure has put on this crown to assist in this. What is it you do in your life that help you in feeling stable?

The message in today’s card is about those activities that make you feel stable and grounded, and encourages us to tap into those activities to help you in feeling stable today.

The #ConnectWithYourDeckChallenge Prompt by E Roebuck-Jones
Questions for September 29th and 30th

Autumn Miss Tarot and the Mad Doctor's OracleHow can I make time for rest and relaxation every day?

Nine of Pentacles and The Fall – Be more conscious of all the good stuff you’ve surrounded yourself with and your accomplishments.

When you rush, mistakes are made. You can accomplish just as much through focused mindfulness as by rushing, because the slower path wont hold as many setbacks, mistakes, and problems in the mix.

There’s truth in the saying that everything gets done in its own time.  In a lot of tasks and goals, you reach the finish line at the same time no matter if you rush or take your time, so why not slow down and enjoy the journey more instead of putting all that strain on yourself by rushing?


Daily Self Kindness

I got all of the October decks pulled earlier today, and I’m still amazed at the ease at which I can now pull decks with the shelves up instead of my previous system.
