Inner Journey:


“One word frees us from the weight and pain of life; that word is love.”
— Sophocles

In exploring the enneagram, Riso and Hudson have identified ‘lost messages’ that we needed to hear as children but didn’t. The absence of these words may be at the heart of our most basic fear. And unconsciously we may still be seeking to hear these words from others.

Review the following messages and note if any one touches you more strongly than the others:

  1. “You are good.”
  2. “You are wanted.”
  3. “You are loved for yourself.”
  4. “You are seen for who you are.”
  5. “Your needs are not a problem.”
  6. “You are safe.”
  7. “You will be taken care of.”
  8. “You will not be betrayed.”
  9. “Your presence matters.”

“Oh the comfort, the inexpressible comfort of feeling safe with a person, having neither to weigh thoughts nor measure words, but pouring them all right out, just as they are — chaff and grain together — certain that a faithful hand will take and sift them, keep what is worth keeping, and with the breath of kindness blow the rest away.”
— Dinah Mulock

Like a Cheshire cat,

The Universe

Today’s Tarot: Monday; The High Priestess

Be inconspicuous if you can, stay out of your own way, and see how many things go right all by themselves. Real luck is looking for you today, but you can chase it away by trying to have too much control over everything. This is not a day to micromanage. Rather, listen to your hunches, and don’t demand solid answers or too many facts or figures.

Today’s Tarot Tuesday: Temperance

Patience is your secret weapon to face down all obstacles today. Take your good old time to make sure you understand what needs to be done, for whom, why, and how. This methodical approach may not be your natural or favorite one, and it might annoy someone who has a different opinion of how urgent the issue is. Nonetheless, patience will get you through the day with fewer, if any, mishaps.
