Mon 20th – Tue 21st : Caretaker
Now even though I am reading these cards for specific days I can see them weaving together across the full week. So take them as they come.
First up we have caretaker. Now as soon as I pulled this card what came up first was self care. Of stopping placing others before you and looking to see what you can do for yourself. To feel calm, feel in control and feel in balance.
All too often we forget to look after ourselves and drain our resources and energy for the sake of others. Now I don’t include children in this as that’s a very specific thing.
But I do include everyone else.
Have you been listening to your body and resting when tired, eating when hungry, taking a step back when feeling overwhelmed? Or have you been attempting to push past all this to “keep going”?
It’s time to stop and place yourself at the top of the list of people to look after.
Sounds easy but can be difficult – especially if we have been ignoring ourselves for some time. It’s a form of boundary setting as well. Of ensuring your own energy is where it needs to be BEFORE helping anyone else Otherwise we can burn out or be drained dry.
When you start to take yourself seriously others will too. But if you walk over your own boundaries others assume they can too.
Can you see a bit of a pattern?
If the shoe is on the other foot give people space. They will be in touch when they can and how they can. Allow them time to process what they have coming up in their lives.
You may find other people or groups who can offer the help/guidance/support you need and be in a better space/position to be able to help you. You may have to look beyond the norm for this but the help will be there if it is truly needed.
Try not to take anything personally right now – if you need to take a step back for your sanity then do it. If you need to reduce contact with someone then do it.
If you feel people drawing back who normally are front and centre for you have a bit of understanding that they are doing the needful to find balance and calm themselves first.
A touch of compassion goes a long way right now.
Wed 22nd – Thur 23rd : Sacred Beetle Armour
Curious to see this card popping up as generally it’s linked with boundaries and extreme self care. Of realising when the need to protect your energy arises and doing just that.
Now shields and boundaries can get a little muddled or misunderstood. It’s not about hiding away from the world – it’s about having a defined line in the sand of what you will accept and what you will not accept. And being very present and aware of what is going on around you.
Where we are right now globally is very confused and boundaries can become blurred. This is a time to maintain and rebuild if need be.
To look at your energy and spot any depletions, leaks, attachments etc and correct them. You are more than capable and while you may require a bit of guidance you will know at a gut level what is going on.
You just need to listen to yourself right now. Mute others narrative and concentrate what you can sense direct.
Part of this may be stepping away from media – main stream and social, switching off your devices, getting outside, reading a book…….whatever gives you a feeling of space, calm and the ability to breathe.
Find yourself again and clear out any projected energies, programming, frequencies or vibrations that aren’t in sync with you right now. Allow your own energy, feelings, thoughts to fill that space instead.
Reclaim your energy and give it some TLC.
Fri 24th – Sun 26th : Love
See the progress of this weeks cycle?
This for me is about compassion, gratitude and understanding even in the hardest of times.
We are in very uncertain times right now and much is outside of our control – but we all have depths of love and compassion. Time to tune into this.
To feel unconditional love and acceptance for ourselves, others and all. To allow it to show and flow – even in the smallest of ways. A wave or a smile can do just that.
Feel gratitude for where you are right now and allow it to ripple outwards.
Feel love for where you are right now and allow it to ripple outwards.
Your acceptance of where you are at the present moment may light a torch for someone struggling or show them how to move forwards.
I’m not going to say much else on this one as it feels self explanatory.
Start of the week – odd as it may sound or indeed feel it’s time to put yourself first. To really listen to your body and up the self care. The old saying of you can’t pour from an empty teapot has never been truer. Delve into your energy/feelings and ask how you are right now – listen to what comes up and go with your own guidance as to how you can move it forwards. Others will respect the need for you to step back for a bit. Others will step up in your place.
Mid week – Boundaries, boundaries, boundaries. Yours and others. Respect them, maintain them and reinforce if needed.
End of the week – oddly after all the suggestions for self care and boundaries now is the time to step into self acceptance and feel gratitude and love for all you have right now. For the situation you find yourself in right now. To be present and have compassion for self and for all – and to let that flow outwards.
