Emotions are swirling below the surface. Tarot & Tea, Queen of Water.
This is the energy of the day, and how to embrace and make the most of it.
Fear and love, hate and betrayal, compassion, kindness and tenderness, are all jumbled up in an emotional typhoon. So, it’s time to be gentle with ourselves. To know that we can respond appropriately and not be highly reactive. A day to pause in peace and ask for guidance.
Stimulus, pause, respond.
We see more clearly than we ever have, and it can become overwhelming. There’s so much anger and angst, coming from fear and even terror, that it can be hard at times not to become overwhelmed. Our mission today is to return to love. Return to kindness.
Queen of Water reminds us to be compassionate.
And that starts with ourselves. Time to book a day off. Perhaps some pampering would be nice. Or simply a day to catch-up on movies and TV, snuggled under a blanket, with popcorn and tea. Slow down and let the emotional undercurrents calm and relax.
We are spirit beings having a human experience. Our emotions are part of this experience, so open to allowing them to flow through you and not over you. Reach out and talk to a trusted advisor or a loving supporter: your coach, your therapist, or today choose to find that someone who can help you release emotional turmoil and return you to calmness.
Light a candle. Say a prayer. Return to kindness.
As I sip my morning tea, I’m looking out at a blanket of white. Snow has returned to the Valley, and although the roads are chaotic and school routines are upset, out here in the foothills of the Cascade Mountains, there’s a sense of peace and calm. A white blanket enrobes my beloved brambles. My dog bounds around, dancing in the snow banks. Animal paw and hoof prints speckle the garden. And a sweet little chickadee braves the weather to breakfast on the seed feeder. Peace.
Breathe deeply and take that sense of peace in to every cell of your body. Healing body, mind, emotions and spirit with kindness and peace.
This too shall pass. All is well.
