Reflecting On The Praying Mantis

Animal Sign

I believe animals cross our path to bring us spiritual messages. Sometimes the messages are about us, our character, strengths or weaknesses. Sometimes they’re about events in our life and our thoughts impacting those events.

I’ve mentioned before, my favorite author on this subject is Ted Andrews. He has two books that I highly recommend, “Animal Speak” and “Animal Wise”.

He puts into words the wisdom of the Shamanistic approach to animal sign I was taught in my early studies. I high recommend his books.  Continue reading

9-11 Never Forget by Springwolf 🐾 ©2012

 

 

We Will Always Remember and Never Forget

Never Forget those we lost, their family and friends.
Never Forget those first responders and their heroic efforts.
Never Forget those who sacrificed their lives in the aftermath.
Never Forget those who volunteered to serve in response.
Never Forget those who didn’t come home from far and near.
We will always remember, with tears, thoughts and prayers.

Today’s Tarot Meditation Drawing: Three of Wands

wands-3

Mystic Faery Tarot by Linda Ravenscroft

Don’t make assumptions, read the manual! Things aren’t what they look like and you want to make sure you follow the correct instructions. Not doing so can create disaster and break products beyond repair, or impact agreements you’ve already made. You’ll also avoid getting upset and frustrated because something isn’t going together as it should.


Additional Insight:

Your task today might be something simple and easy to complete. But once you get your hands into it, things will be a little more complicated and less intuitive than you thought.

Take time to read the instructions and follow the manual from the beginning. The last thing you need is an unnecessary expense. It’s not a day to cut corners or make assumptions concerning something you’ve done many times before.

Sometimes new ideas are placed upon old things and a lot of exceptions, tweaks or band-aids were created to make them work together. You want to make sure you understand the old stuff well enough to maintain it. And you have a grasp on the new stuff to ensure it can still support the old in the manner it’s supposed to.

You’ll be able to solve the riddles and create the solutions. But that will require you to ignore what you already believe and understand about the topic. You may know a lot; but you don’t know everything. Even experts still have room to learn and discover. Don’t dismiss new perspectives of old ideas simply because you feel threatened or embarrassed that you don’t know something. Let go of the prideful arrogance, it’s not going to serve you well.

Today’s Tarot Meditation Drawing: Seven of Swords

7 of Swords

Mystic Faery Tarot by Linda Ravenscroft

Water your dreams and you’ll replace the blues with love and compassion for change. Things can’t keep going the way they are. Your current pattern of thinking and action are not sustainable. Stop allowing fear to wrap you up in the little hurts of the past. You have wings to fly and you didn’t have those last time around. This is your reminder to let go of the negative self talk! You not only can do this; but you’ve been doing! What more proof do you need?


Additional Insight:

In the fore-front of your mind you know things have to change in order for you to move forward. You tell yourself “I can do this” and you try to go through the motions of getting it done…to a point. But deep in your thoughts you’re still playing those negative recordings that put you down and encourage the fear of failure to constantly repeat in your subconscious. Stop it!

The only constant in life is that things change! You decide if they change for the better or if you stumble and fall back down the mountain. Stop allowing the doubts of others dictate your actions. There maybe a slight detour on your plan that you hadn’t seen before. It’s not a failure, it’s not a long trip away from your ultimate destination. Could be you need a little detour to gain experience on a particular item that will oil the final gear and get things moving forward with full steam and ease. Allow the possible to become probable and stop assuming the worst will happen if you take that extra trip. Continue reading

Today’s Tarot Meditation Drawing: Ace of Cups

Ace of Cups

Mystic Faery Tarot by Linda Ravenscroft

One more pebble will spill the whole works. Be careful what you’re taking on and the promises you’re making. You’ve already made commitments and you’re not giving yourself enough time to get those done. You’re not going to impress anyone if you take on more than you can handle, miss deadlines and leave people in the lurch. It’s ok to say “No”. If someone gets upset with that, they need to look at their own over commitments. You can’t save everyone, when you’re trying to save yourself and those closest to you.


Additional Insight:

No use crying over spilt milk. You made your choices, now it’s time to focus on those commitments and get things done the best you can. Don’t rush through projects or you’ll make mistakes and probably miss something that could be extremely costly in the end. You asked to be the ‘boss’; now it’s time to step up and take the responsibility of getting it done.

You’ll have time to goof off and play later. There’s plenty of fish in the sea who admire the self dedication and sacrifice it takes to work on your dreams and make them come true. Stop worrying about the one that got away, and focus on the one who’s in your pond today. You can’t keep worrying about history repeating itself, or you’re going to give it energy and make it happen all over again.

If you let go of the fear and stop thinking you have to go to the extremes to be accepted, things won’t feel so overwhelming. You won’t have to shine the brightest, or be the toughest or be the everything to everyone at ever instant of the day. You don’t need to be the warrior who tries to be the super hero. That person never seems to end the day in celebration. There’s always something missing, because they’ve sacrificed everything for the conquest and they have no one left to share the moment with when all is said and done.

Today’s Tarot Meditation Drawing: Two of Wands

Mystic Faery Tarot by Linda Ravenscroft

Watch out for tricksters who pretend to be your friend or force themselves into your life. They want more than your friendship. Be gracious and kind, but hold back a little of your personal details. Don’t share too much about your business and how you got here. Your trust has value and so do you. Make sure you remember that trust is earned. Don’t give yours away too freely or without a little scrutiny. You’ll save yourself some headaches and unnecessary hardships.


Additional Insight:

Not everyone has the interpersonal skills to make new friends and may seem overwhelming when they meet you. A lack of social skills might be what’s occurring today. But then again, you might come across someone who plays on your good graces in order to take advantage of you or someone in your circle.

Be cautious. Don’t share your personal secrets or your business ones either. You could be talking to your competition and sharing information that allows them to steal your customer base. Sometimes being balanced in life also means being realistic. Not everyone out there is trying to live with good positive energy. An ounce of skepticism is a must in today’s world. As long as you hold it in balance with belief.

Remember that too much of anything, good, bad or indifferent is not good for you. That includes being naive and opening your front door to all who knock and want to come in for a visit. If you don’t know them, or haven’t seen them around, keep them on the front porch. You can be nice and kind just as easy out there, as within your own domain. And that’s not just your physical home or office. That’s your emotions and physical being too.

Today’s Tarot Meditation Drawing: Three of Wands – Inverted

Three Of Wands - Inverted

Mystic Faery Tarot by Linda Ravenscroft

If you work together you can be the pillars holding everything up. Things may feel like they’re closing in on you, but you still have a few tricks up your sleeves. Study the information you have at your fingertips and you’ll discover solutions that allow you to game the system. Magik is rooted around you and helping you to hold things up long enough to implement your ideas. Nothing is caving in yet. Keep at it. Your fortitude will be rewarded!


Additional Insight:

You’ve been in this situation before and each time you’ve gotten through it. Why assume this time is going to be any different? Your fear will only create more fear and anxiety. Push those feelings aside and delve into the work! You’re going to have all weekend to work on resolving the latest battle.

Keep calm and focused. Study your instructions, fill out the papers and do the little things that keep you moving forward. Struggle is only overwhelming if you give in and allow it to paralyze your actions or reactions. But when you can keep calm with a positive perspective about the outcome, you push the pendulum in the direction you need and want it to go.

Fortitude is a little word with a lot standing behind it. By definition it means to have courage in the face of pain or adversity. It comes from Latin fortis ‘strong’. It means you have strength in endurance, having resilience and expressing the mettle to fight against adversity. You have already shown the strength of mind and character to face the physical challenges life has thrown at you. Along with the strong-mindedness and backbone to fight for what you deserve and desire. You’ve maintained your faith and hope with a strong spirit, true grit and steadfastness to learn from these lessons and put their teachings into action. Continue reading

Today’s Tarot Meditation Drawing: Five of Swords – Inverted

5 of Swords - Inverted

Mystic Faery Tarot by Linda Ravenscroft

Be careful of what connects you together isn’t becoming poisoned with stress and unfair accusations. The thorns you’re holding within your emotions are little frustrations that have no real bearing on what you’re going through. But you are allowing those little hurts, to fester and grow into something you cannot resolve and will bring things to an end. Anger and strife will not help you create a united front. But understanding and accountability will keep your line strong and you’ll succeed in holding off the incoming attacks from the battle field.


Additional Insight:

You must hold respect for those you’re working with. Be they family, friends or co-workers you can keep the peace and unity of your clan by appreciating each others efforts. Allow ideas and solutions to flow freely back and forth. It’s a day to show and receive respect with openness and even change of plans. If someone has a better idea, don’t be stubborn and ignore it because it doesn’t fit with your original schedule or priority list for the day.

You maybe stressed to the brim, but so are those you’re trying to work with. And while everything seems important and imperative; those things with immediate deadlines should be at the top of your list. Even if that means pushing back on another deadline that might be equally important, but in the long run could be too little too late. Continue reading
