“When seeking guidance, don’t ever listen to the tiny-hearted. Be kind to them, heap them with blessing, cajole them, but do not follow their advice.”
Although it may seem tempting to stay barricaded within your comfort zone today, you may find that you regret the decision later, as you consider the missed opportunities. You could find that escaping out into the fresh air, whether actual or metaphorical could be just the thing to clear your mind and give you a fresh perspective. Meanwhile, accepting that much of your internal struggle may be fruitless, could well free you up to spend more time relaxing, safe in the knowledge that in reality, others opinions really do not matter that much, as they are not walking your path.
Ritual for Change
Rise a half an hour earlier than usual, make a hot cup of tea, and sit yourself in your favourite chair. While the tea is cooling, shuffle the cards, trying to find the feeling that is uppermost in your heart. Try to still your mind from questioning, and just focus on the feeling. When you are happy with the feeling of the cards, draw any two. Whilst you are drinking your tea, read the relevant stories, referring to the paintings, and see what comes up for you. Be aware of how you are feeling, and make short notes if you have the time; a journal of these readings can be a valuable and precious asset.
The first card will tell you what to focus on as you go about your daily life, the people you meet with, the work that you do, the necessary chores, the duties and the tasks. How to physically arrive in the best shape, at the end of your day. The second card is for your secret self, the chrysalis within. It will tell you what is needed to aid your transformation, what feeds your soul and how to cope with the burdens that you bear. This card will keep you going, guiding you until after the sun goes down, and sleep beckons……..Rinse and repeat for as long as you need; don’t rush, change rarely happens overnight.
