I’m starting this blog series in an attempt to find my way to “chill” because yo gorl has almost no chill – only now instead of that being a personality trait it’s causing hormonal fluctuations that my body doesn’t know how to process anymore which then leads to me passing out … which is no bueno. I consider myself agnostic because I’m not sure there is/are a god/s, but I’m not going to tell you they can’t possibly exist either. I do however enjoy the idea of trying out different forms of meditation to see if any of them will work for me, which brings me to my latest adventure – using tarot cards as a point of focus for meditation. Let’s see what cards I pull today, shall we?
Today I’m just pulling a single card while asking myself what I can continue to do or add to help me reach my goals.
Three of Water
Wow, this card is very relevant since the main focus is on celebrating success, observing accomplishments, and looking forward to future successful endeavors. I haven’t been regularly observing meditation, but I’m thankful for what I’ve learned from my meditations so far. I also have a tendency to not give myself credit for what I have accomplished unless I physically write it down in my planner. The good news is I have been tracking my accomplishments in my phone, but it just doesn’t hit quite the same way as physically writing it in a planner. What’s hilarious is that five minutes before starting this meditation session I decided it was time to start physically journaling again since I recognized I hadn’t been celebrating my accomplishments.
Instead of regularly journaling and meditating, lately I’ve been focusing on becoming more cardiovascularly active after I got some really dicey bloodwork back from the doctor’s office. I’ve been working on this for about a month, but, because I’ve had a couple of bad days back to back to back now, I haven’t really felt like I’ve accomplished anything – that is until I looked at my digital health log over the course of a month. I’ve already started to make very solid improvements at my original goal pace – I’m even doing a little better than what I had predicted. But I didn’t give myself any credit for it until I went back and looked over the whole process from a “more zoomed out” view.
I guess I better get back to journaling in my daily planner and thank myself for every day’s accomplishments.
On a side note, if you’d like to keep up with me a bit more on social media on what I’m doing to improve my life and reach my goals you can check out my Instagram @TheBookishSockToo
Also here’s the most recent video I’ve filmed with a health update and outlining part of what I’m doing to improve my bloodwork:
This card was pulled from the Dreams of Gaia Tarot set by Ravynne Phelan – it’s sort of a hybrid oracle deck that I’ve really been enjoying. The accompanying book for this set really makes sense to my brain.
