Today I'm going to type a wee bit slower... as a typo-preventive measure, but also because I pulled the Bear card this morning.
Pulling cards from oracle and tarot decks is a regular thing for me.
Guidance is good. Even from slips of illustrated paper.
And the right guidance is usually right on time.
Today is no exception.
Today I pulled the Bear card from my SpiritSong deck.
Sanctuary and Rest.
And thank goodness!
It's been a big week.
Back to the Bear...
"navigator of the dreamworld"...
"He appreciates the value of rest and quietude..."
Is anyone reeeeally surprised by this? :)
Anyway, I pulled this card this morning... and was back in bed for a nap by 11 am.
Early on in my business, it was hard for me to rest... These were early days of adrenaline, of beginning to learn to trust myself both as a creative, and also as an owner... together.
At the same time.
And rest was something I really didn't
1. think I needed
2. want to need
3. pay much attention to... despite the help it could bring in staving off anxiety as a new freelancer.
I thought I couldn't "afford" it. That I needed to always be "on" in order to succeed. That it was an indulgence, something ...
It's different now. Today was a day to listen to bear's wisdom... and to take the rest I need, no matter what my opinion is about what I need.
It has been a big week and rest and quiet is right on time for today.
Sanctuary and Rest to you too!
