I’m smack-dab in the middle of an über busy few days, and predicted heat-wave. The pool needs me four times in three days (I’ve become the substitute-water-instructor-of-choice. Apparently).
All of this makes today’s message a tiny bit ironic. (Still valid, but slightly comical, on a cosmic level.)
We are being reminded to look past the false importance of our shells and stay in tune with our own sacred self. Our inner voice and shining light are so very much more valuable than the physical casing we walk around in.
To do things like therapeutic water movement is an EXCELLENT way to honour our bodies, but at the same time, it’s also a lovely sort of spiritual checking in, too. We, as a culture, are uncomfortably disconnected on this issue.
Whatever the way we can delve deeper, and make that soul connection, we are being encouraged to do so. It will benefit us, from the inside out.
And as we return to our regular rotation around the card altar, this draw shows us how very basic it is to begin a releasing process. We can allow the laser focused mindset on our bodily imperfections to slip away, since really, it was never needed.
(Sidebar: here is our second such message from the cards in less than two weeks. Remember THIS ?)
Additionally, the number eight in a symbolic sense, is the infinity sign on its side. We are in a continuous state of ending, beginning, ending, and beginning a new. The more we are aware of it, the less challenging it becomes.
“Letting Go ~ 8 ~ Water: Emotions
In this image of lotus leaves in the early morning, we can see in the rippling of the water that one drop has just fallen.
It is a precious moment, and one that is full of poignancy. In surrendering to gravity and slipping off the leaf, the drop loses its previous identity and joins the vastness of the water below.
We can imagine that it must have trembled before it fell, just on the edge between the known and unknowable.
To choose this card is a recognition that something is finished, something is completing. Whatever it is – a job, a relationship, a home you have loved, anything that might have helped you to define who you are – it is time to let go of it, allowing any sadness but not trying to hold on.
Something greater is awaiting you, new dimensions are there to be discovered. You are past the point of no return now, and gravity is doing its work.
Go with it – it represents liberation.”
