We are reminded today to be the best person we can be. Tarot & Tea, Six of Earth
This is the energy of the day, and how to embrace and make the most of it.
Step forward and be counted. Our responsibility lies in our ability to lead and teach others by example. Be the peace you wish to see in the world. Then show the children. It’s our sacred duty to protect the planet and it’s resources. Begin at home, with family.
Humanitarian issues may come to mind. And if so, then it’s time for the grand gesture. How can you help save our beautiful planet? It can be as simple as choosing to not buy things that are over-packaged or destined for the landfill.
One of my pet peeves is when I go to people’s homes and they offer me a snack, which is in an individual package, which came in a box, wrapped in plastic. (Sometimes, especially from the big box stores, within another box, wrapped in plastic!) And then carried home in a plastic bag. All that packaging ends up in our oceans and on the land. The toxic inks sink into the soils. The food grown becomes contaminated. Sea creatures get entangled and die.
One simple way to stop that might be bake your own goodies. And, you’ve become a force for good on the planet!
Share this idea with others. Get together and bake together, or do swaps. Not into the baking thing? Don’t buy pre-packaged veggies. Buy them loose and pop them into your washable, reusable bag. Wash and chop. Those icky ready prepped and individual portion carrots aren’t good food. Buy local carrots. Wash, chop and keep in a little water in a glass bowl in the fridge. Tastes so much better.
(And I had a client from Hong Kong who used to drink the left over carrot water. She swore it kept leg cramps at bay and helped her have a good night’s sleep. She was active and fit into her 90s, so maybe worth a try?)
What’s in it for me? You will feel better about yourself. You will feel empowered because you can make a difference. Like a pebble in a pond, the ripples will spill out. Law of attraction in action. And…
Teach the children.
Children learn by example. So, take a little extra time to avoid packaging, eat whole foods, share and play nicely and they’ll follow suit.
Take care of you. Don’t use toxic products on your skin. Apart from the fact that we are porous and what goes on the top, sinks into the organs (shudder), it’s not necessary. Try coconut oil as a gentle moisturizer. Buy natural soaps and detergents that are gentle on you and on the environment.
It’s time for us to step up and look after our beautiful planet. If we each do a little, it becomes a lot. And teach the children. They’ll know how to take it up a notch.
And on that note, I’m recommending Bramble Cottage Black tea for today. I know, I know. I’m always banging on about how delish it is. But its also fabulous for the environment. All organic ingredients — no sulfites, no artificial chemicals, non-GMO. And sustainable harvested, which means everyone is a inner when we drink it. Bam, mic drop! Smiles. (Link below to buy.)
So, Dear Heart, Six of Earth is really saying to us today ‘learn about nature and protect the animals, forests and oceans.’ Baby steps to making a real difference.
