Today’s card isn’t a Tarot card. It isn’t one of my Zentangles. It’s from a rather unusual oracle deck. This deck depends on words rather than pictures. It doesn’t give me the out of letting my mind wander. I can’t trip over a meaningful interpretation the way I can on other decks. This one says, “Stop. Think. Consider.” So I will. Today I am told to hold my power.
Well, the haiku written by Rachel Marco-Havens, actually urges me to try. I like that gentleness. It’s inherently forgiving, isn’t it? Try to stay grounded. I really like the last line of this haiku.
And hold your power
What does that mean to you? What is it to hold your power?
For me, it means don’t waste my energy. I need to hold my power…use it for me…focus on that connection to the core.
It’s a good thought. One I really need right now as I am spending some time out of my own hula hoop wondering if someone else at work is doing the “right” thing.
Big quotes around right because my right isn’t their right. I am not privy to their life, their background, their ethics. What I see as “right” may not be their vision.
So I need to hold my power. I need to stop wasting so much energy wondering if they are doing as they should. I need to focus on doing as *I* should instead.
For your 180 seconds today, that three minute commitment, can you hold on to your own power? Can you commit to owning only what is yours? Can you let go of worrying about someone else?
Practice makes perfect, darlings.
And, grin, have you gotten your copy of my Fairy Tale Tarot spreads eBook yet? I hope you will.
Haiku for Thought, Rachel Marco-Havens, 2012 (a few decks from this amazing little pocket-sized gift are still available.)
Seek joy, y’all. Pass it on. Remember that I love you.
