Today’s meditation was just over ten minutes long, and I started a new series to work through as the regular daily meditation was a repeat from a couple months ago. The new series is “How to Meditate” with a different narrator than my regular, so we’ll see how it goes. I did very much like the very basic way that they broke down what meditation is, though, and so I’ll probably stick with it for a while at least, regardless of the voice not being the best.
Today’s draw is the Nine of Wands, which is a representation of resilience, defense, and good boundaries in the area of one’s passions, drive, and ambitions. After the day I had yesterday, it’s not surprising that this card would come up.
Today’s draw is a reminder to keep my boundaries strong. They are there for a reason and even with the awakening of new levels of emotion in my life, they need to hold firm. That new depth of emotion I’ve been feeling lately leaves me feeling a bit disoriented and as if I am fumbling in the dark. Now more than ever it is important to ground myself in my values, as well as in those boundaries I’ve put in place for my own personal and emotional safety as well as the safety of what (and who) I hold dear.
Deck Used: Dark Mansion Tarot
Another #TarotForGrowthOctober prompt.
Question: How can I encourage continued growth moving forward?
Reading Summary: When you’re feeling a bit lost in the dark (The Moon) remain calm, thoughtful, and decisive (Queen of Swords) rather than letting choices overwhelm you (Seven of Cups) and create conflict (Five of Wands).
Take Away: A lot of times when I’m dealing with uncertainty, I let things get overwhelming because I feel powerless in those moments. The cards are reminding me that to move forward and grow from these experiences, I can’t give in to those feelings of being overwhelmed, but instead strive to stay calm and collected within the storm.
