The past few weeks I’ve been feeling increasingly overwhelmed. As in the way of all things, (see last post re: thinking and being), the Universe stepped in. Pun unintentional, but highly appropriate.
Wanna guess who had to make a visit to Urgent Care and got sent home with instructions to stay off her feet for the next 4 days? Yeah, this witch.
The eclipse, politics, Mercury retrograde, debt, work problems, increasingly painful edema, and now a new (wtf?) foot situation. It was just adding up to equal: too much.
I went to see a medical professional and she shut it all down. She became the voice of Source. She said, “no more” and she was the last word.
Thanks, Powers That Be. I’m listening. And now, I’m staying home, elevating my lower appendages, practicing Self-Care, and being here in the small house which is now our home.
As I paid attention to what the signs were telling me, I heard this:
We have many lives, many chances, many adventures. If it all doesn’t get done RIGHT NOW that’s fine. We have tomorrow. We have next week. We have next year, and all the years/tomorrows after that.
We are being reminded that the Journey is where our focus needs to lie. Aim for the enjoyment, the lesson, the tiny moment of pleasure.
Once again, it’s about being present. Being in this time. And if some shit has to be transferred to tomorrow’s list (or some tomorrows in the future) that’s perfectly okay. We’ll get there. We always do.
Time does not “run out” nor does it disappear. It wrinkles, it rolls over, it moves along, it meanders down its own path.
And as a validation, we see that it also turns like a wheel.

Or, as I like to read them, with a tweak. This view shows us that we’ve all been around the block. We’ve seen the ups and downs.
What changes is not the Wheel, but how we see it. There are lean times and times of plenty. There are times when we feel like we need a break, and then, maybe we can go on a vacation/take a day trip/slip off for a nap.
A new cycle has begun, and we are rolling around in the middle of it. Transitions surround us. The dust has begun to settle. We’re finding our groove after having lost the beat.
Basically, no matter what today feels like, we know tomorrow is there. An opportunity. A new fresh day, filled with potential. Time turns, it is gifted to us. We can choose to embrace it, or not.

Robin Wood Tarot and me
is this affirmation. It seemed to be exactly what we needed.
Be Well, my loved ones. Because here we are now, exactly as we are, the perfect amount.
