There is no picture of my injury from yesterday. It didn’t go nearly as bad as I thought it might. Whew! I’m tellin’ you guys, that magical blue stuff is the best! Combined with my Trifecta Of Pain Relief? The perfect way to feel better, no matter WHAT has happened.
Also, I have a bit of bad news. Our Daily Dog feature could be going on hiatus. Empress and Max have taken a pet and house-sitting gig. She went over there tonight, sans Grand Dog, to spend some quality (bonding, get-to-know-you) time with the four-legged residents. Tomorrow he’ll be joining her, and we probably won’t see them for a week or more. Now, she MAY send us phone photos of everyone, so there IS hope!
Our message today is one of those that has meanings only one (or any) direction. And wow, it’s timely. Again.
“The Dragon’s Duel ~
inner conflict, morality, conscious choice ~ 23
The Dragon’s Duel takes place at the proverbial fork in the road. It is both Ally and Challenger at once, as it represents the tension of opposites. Even though the truth is that we live in unity, we experience the duality of faith and doubt, love and fear, right and wrong, black and white. This aspect of your current experience asks you to accept that although you may be going one way, another may call to you to change direction.
Now is the time to inquire whether it’s your ego or your soul leading you. There are always choices in life. Decision making also solves inner conflict. If you are torn between two dragons, the one that you chose to feed will be the one that wins. Which is it? If it’s not the one that serves the highest of your intention, deliberately feed the other and the duel will be won in your favor.”
Part of this definition has never made sense to me, but today I read it differently, and I see more of what she’s saying here. It also (gawd I love a theme) ties in to us standing our ground and being more in-tune with what we need in order move forward. On my own path, the disconnect is quite obvious when I look at it through the eyes of this card.
I didn’t have a particularly great start to the day, but after my bike ride, and after I told Dan that I needed to be in a snit for a while, it did improve. I worked really hard on focusing directly into what I was feeling, sensing, experiencing. (Look at me doin’ my damn homework!) Then I released as much negativity (and crappy attitude) as I could, and finished off with my new affirmation*.
*Which I just invented on Friday, and will share down at the bottom of this post. Feel free to incorporate it into your own Positivity Journaling. (Because I KNOW you are all doing this with me.)
I started afresh, tuning OUTwards, and moving past. We got some groceries (he’s going to make me a frittata), and we had a slow meander with our frozen yogurt treats. I really do enjoy when shit falls into place. (Or ya know, I love it when I do the work and it WORKS.)
Also? The number on this one adds down to five. So, bonus. We get a pentacle as our reward.
