Sharing and communicating. Advice given and received. Tarot & Tea, VII The Sage
This is the energy of the day, and how to embrace and make the most of it.
Tradition and cultural values have a place in our lives. But how much of our belief system and responses to life are just a habit? A day to get in touch with our ‘inner’ Sage. Listen. Learn. Avoid overreacting. Don’t speak so much, that you forget to listen.
Is someone or something in your life giving you feedback that you don’t want to hear?
Loving insight may be perceived as a personal attack. Step back. See where the sharing or advice is coming from. If it’s from someone who loves you very much, then listen up. Accept the input. Re-evaluate how you are showing up in life.
Or are you being manipulated into not listening to your own heart and mind? Beware The Sage who comes as the wolf in sheep’s clothing.
Weigh your options. Your choices. Sometimes we are so used to turning up one way, we don’t see any other path. Is it a learned behavior? Is this what we really want?
Shake it up. Do something that breaks you out of your routine today. Even if that’s just taking a new route to the office, or going to a different coffee-shop. Or, maybe even, trying a new food. It’s good to shake things up, just for the sake of it. We get a chance to see the world through a different lens. We also get to see other ways, traditions, cultures beliefs.
How will you change it up today?
Sharing our cultural heritage. Embracing where we are is important, but have we lost a little of our ancestry? Time to research. Are there aspects of your culture that you miss? As the world becomes a melting pot we honor the new with our technology and social media. But this type of sharing can at times seem empty. Meditate, pray and/or contemplate on your own personal story. Bring a piece to life and share.
So, do I drink tea because I’m a Brit and it’s part of my culture? Yes, and no. I gave up caffeine for 6 months once, which meant no black tea. It was an experiment. I got to embrace lots of lovely herbs, which was a very new experience. I went back to my British Black Tea, but expanded my tastes. Herbs, tisanes, and flavored blends add to the experience of tea drinking. I didn’t lose my cultural background, but added to it.
Where can you add to yours?
(Oh, and btw today is Bramble Cottage Black Tea. Sharing the old with the new.)
Sharing means being open to give and to receive. Two sides of the same coin. Let The Sage energy guide us today.
