Today’s Tarot Meditation Drawing: Strength

Strength

Mystic Faery Tarot by Linda Ravenscroft

Find Strength in the compassion and love around you. Allow healing to begin from within. Don’t push others away and try to walk this road alone. It’s too easy to become lost and give up. It’s to easy to fall into the darkness and become consumed by despair. It’s hard to remember that you’re not the only one hurting. But try to share the compassion you receive. Others need it too.


Additional Insight:

I’m surprised by this card today, yet it’s so appropriate on so many levels. There are many who are facing trials both great and small today. It’s easy to become overwhelmed and stressed out by hardships no matter what they are. What you think is a trivial thing could be the very last straw dropped on someone’s back and they can no longer carry all the weight that built up over the last few days, months or even years.

In those times of struggle we need to be there for each other. We need to listen and share in the compassion and love around us. There’s something to be said for sharing the tears of pain and helping each other through the darkness of sorrow.

Yes some struggles are more dire than others. Some run deeper and some hit the very essence of our soul. But all deserve kindness, support and consideration. Whither it be spending an extra moment of your time to help someone in need, giving a hug to lift someone up or reassuring someone close to you that you’re there by their side to lean on, all acts of compassion can ease someone’s spirit. And it can even help ease your own.

Let them cry, let them scream, hold their hand and endure or share the release of emotion. Could be they’ll be there for you one day. Helping you to stand and not runaway into the depths of the darkness and solitude.

Today’s Tarot Meditation Drawing: Four of Swords

Four of Swords

Mystic Faery Tarot by Linda Ravenscroft

Allow yourself to be cradled in love and compassion. Rest and release the stress that has overwhelmed you and taken the color of joy out of your life. You are not alone, you will always be held by your inner spirit and the Divine in your life. So while it may seem like everything has come crashing in, you will survive and your kingdom will find brightness again.

 


Additional Insight:

There are many ways to release stress from your life. Meditation, exercise, even giving yourself permission to have a good cry can help you let go of all that you’ve held inside. The only real constant in the Divine Universe is change. So while things are hard today, and the stress of loss or struggle seems to hang over your head, know it will not last forever.

Don’t allow your fear and anxiety to get the best of you now. Don’t lose faith in your beliefs, or in yourself. Rather now is the time to fall back on what you believe and to remember you are never alone in your fight to survive.

Start your day with a smile, even though it maybe hard and a simply affirmation to remind you that you can and will get through this!

I can because I am one with the Divine Universe
I choose to live with joy in the here and now.
I face each and every day with empowerment and love.
And So It Is.
