Mistakes Are A Passing Event

Go Within

Close your eyes to go with in,
not to replay the mistakes in your mind.

Don’t Allow Mistakes To Govern Your Future

We’re all human and not a single one of us is perfect. Every person on this planet has made mistakes in the past and will make more in the future. So why do we allow those passing events to rule and dictate our lives?

Yes the actions we take have consequences. And yes some of those consequences can create life long impacts. But does that mean we need to hold ourselves up to a standard of perfection and pay for the mistake for the rest of our lives?

Whether we hold guilt, embarrassment, shame, fear or dread;  people are often way to hard on themselves when it comes to judging our own mistakes. It makes it hard to let go of the past events and gives them much more power over us than they deserve. We carry that baggage around with us and allow it to dictate our choices, or hold us back from new opportunities when they arise. However, this is the exact opposite of what we should do.

Mistakes are opportunities to learn and expand our understanding, both of ourselves and the world around us. Sometimes it takes a stupid mistake to teach us something or to recognize an issue we need to deal with. Doing so allows us to free the restraints of fear or even guilt, and walk our path with courage and a belief in ourselves.

Don’t close your eyes and try to ignore your mistakes, or try to pretend they never happened only to replay their words or actions over and over in your head. This only digs the anchor deeper into the soul and opens the doorway to sorrow and darkness. Continue reading

Today’s Tarot Meditation Drawing: Temperance – Inverted

Temperance: Inverted

Mystic Faery Tarot by Linda Ravenscroft

The winds of change are upon you. Stop fighting so hard to keep things the way they were. That old energy does not serve you well today. Open your arms and allow the breeze to fill your wings and lift you up to where you need to be. Let go of the anchors of the past and soar to new heights.

Additional Insight:

Success is within your grasp if you’d only let go of the anger and frustration of the past. In my tradition, yellow is the color of success, green is the color of healing. How you handle the healing within, will determine the flow of success around you for the rest of the week.

Put your mind to the tasks of the here and now. Stop worrying so much about what you don’t know and start focusing on what you need to do. One thing at a time and you’ll discover the steps to take. The more you “do” what needs to be done, the more you’ll realize how much you really do know and the fear you held was pointless.

You have the answers within you. Even if you don’t think you know how to get to them. They will rise up when needed and you’ll discover you knew it all the time. Trust your instincts and believe in yourself!

That’s where letting go of the past comes in. Be satisfied that you took care of what needs to be done and it’s time to seriously walk away. You’ve told yourself you’ve let it go, but recent events have shown that you really haven’t done that. Stop listening to the recordings in your head. All those negative attacks, comments and put downs are not your baggage to carry. They’re the perspectives of others who are trying to make you into what they want you to be. Not for the support of you, but for their own selfish benefit. So they can feel better about themselves.

Today is the most important day of the year for you. Now is the time to let go of the anchor and allow your wings to catch the wind. Fly with your own skills and rise up to glide over the rocks and obstacles below. The view really is much lovelier up there! And you’re going to like where the breeze carries you to.
