May 20

Today’s meditation was ten minutes long, and once again… I cannot for the life of me remember what it was about. It wasn’t about risk-taking (regardless of the quote they provided for the day), but I think it had something to do with one’s comfort zones.

Page of Pentacles – You need to work on getting comfortable again in your own space. Home is a sanctuary, and it’s one you worked hard to make yours. Having been gone for a time, it’s natural to feel a bit of awkwardness re-entering that environment. Take your time and settle in, re-acclimate and become comfortable once more. Stop looking over your shoulder anticipating the next shoe to drop.

Today’s meditation was ten minutes long and focused on being in the present. It encouraged touching base with where your mind is throughout the day and drawing your thoughts from the past and future back to the present is, for its in the present where life is happening, and musings on the past and future often distract us from what we could be experiencing in the present moment.

The Star is about hope and optimism. It is a reminder of that old parable about feeding the wolves within.

A grandfather is talking with his grandson says, “In life, there are two wolves inside of us which are always in battle. One is a good wolf that represents things like love, kindness, and bravery. The other is a bad wolf that represents things like fear, hatred, and greed”.

The grandson stops and thinks about this for a second, then he looks up at his grandfather and asks, “Grandfather, which one wins?”

The grandfather replies, “The one you feed.”

Although pessimism and negative self talk are your natural inclination and a habit that’s hard to break, it’s important to feed that part of yourself where the optimism and positivity live. When you do so, that is what flourishes, and it helps you see the world in a different and more positive light as a result.


May 22

Today’s meditation was ten minutes long (with an extra couple of minutes added in on the end of just quiet breathing exercises). The topic of the meditation was about how our thoughts often intrude when meditating, and how dealing with these thoughts doesn’t mean banishing them, but in acknowledging them and in doing so “popping” them like bubbles. By acknowledging, you aren’t lingering in them, but more just not ignoring.

King of Wands – This king’s domain is one of passion and interests, and he rules over not just our enthusiasm, but over our values, principles, and mores. In the king there is stability and the strength to lead others, and this card is a reminder today to show the world what matters to you… and in doing so you inspire the world to follow your example and be true to themselves as well. Don’t be shy about showing who you are… for even the parts you see as flaws have the potential to inspire others.

Tomorrow is the full moon, and like all new moons and full moons, I did a spread aligned to the moon’s current themes as a part of my recognition of the moon’s cycle and influences upon us.
