Today’s meditation was fifteen minutes long, and was not a guided meditation. Instead, I visited my safe space for a time. It was very relaxing and calming. Since I woke up with a bit of an anxiety issue this morning that has chosen to ride me for most of the day, I thought the visit to my quiet place was in order. It helped, but I think I would have been better off going for a hike after the farm instead of coming straight home, and then meditating.
Today’s draw is the Five of Flames, which is a representation of tests and trials, struggle, strife, and conflict in the area of one’s ambitions, passions, and drive.
When I look at this card, I hear it telling me to stand up and be strong. The hyena-boy’s fist on that bone is a clear indication to me of it being a time to feel my power. This really goes along very well with yesterday’s Self Care Saturday spread that will post later today, and with a brief reading done by Dee and R on YouTube this morning.
As with these other readings, today’s card is a message of empowerment. “Stand Strong and Conquer”, it says. As I ease from the drop, this is important to keep in mind. I need to build myself up now to prepare for what is coming at the end of the month, as well as to prepare myself and the business for the holiday season ahead. In both cases, I need to be feeling stable, strong, and in my element.

Question: Where am I not guarding myself enough?
Reading Summary: There was once a large and diverse family that existed with the constant threat of violence always just lingering in the eaves. They were constantly trying to talk over each other and making lots of noise. The only one of them that was ever happy was the one that found a way to get a bit of solitary time to rest and relax.
Take Away: If I want to prepare for the visit out east at the end of the month, I need to work on my inner calm and find that place within where I can weather the storm without the constant bombardment of outside influences.
If I can find my inner peace and get well seated and comfortable within it, whatever abusive behavior and words are tossed my way during the week I’m away won’t make such an impact.
