I’ve been thinking about what creates a feeling of security.
We can say, “Oh, I’ll feel secure when I have this much in the bank, when I have this relationship, when this other thing is going okay for me.”
And we mean it. But that’s not true.
I know for a fact, there isn’t a magic event that creates a sense of security. Even those things we think will do it, don’t.
Because much like happiness, security isn’t bestowed by a specific set of outside events. That feeling is an internal state. An internal hunger can only be filled for a short time from outer circumstance. It’s not long before that hunger has to be fed again.
And that sense of safety is not something you can give somebody else. If you have some and want to share, the best you can do is be the lighthouse.
A lighthouse doesn’t go looking for lost ships to tell them which way to turn. It just stands and shines. Solid, unwavering and consistent. Those who are so inclined can certainly use the light to orient themselves.
This week? Be the lighthouse if you can. If not? Look for the light to lead your way. Either works.
We’ve got a few majors this week, so I’m anticipating some punch to events, especially through midweek. We start out with a “wait and see, and keep your mouth shut doing it,” for the first couple of days. Midweek, just be sincere. I don’t even know what that Death card is about on Thursday, but keep yourself grounded. And the last couple of days into the weekend could be time for cleaning up, adjusting your attitude back to optimistic if you can, and self-care yourself silly this weekend. It will help keep your attitude on track!
Monday, Ace of Pentacles Rx: Keep an eye on spending, lest some of your cash get away from you. Lower energy day, so pace yourself. Not un-doable by any means. Just pace yourself. And if you’re in question about something that comes up? Hold off, don’t act for a couple of days. The answer will clarify before the end of the week.
Tuesday, Seven of Swords: Mouth? Shut. Good time to keep some of your observation to yourself. Let others underestimate what you know. Just do your thing and stay out of the fray today.
Wednesday, Knight of Cups: Act from your heart today, even if you feel a little sappy. Very important to act only in ways which you can feel good about. Compassion, kindness and empathy are great assets. Spread them everywhere!
Thursday, Death: Ouch. If you’ve got something that is wiped out, blows up? Realize it was to that point, that nothing could be done. Just clean up the mess, but know that what replaces it? It will be stronger, better. If you don’t feel this, well, I’m glad! But know others may be dealing with this flavor of energy. So tread lightly.
Friday, Magician Rx: Control what you can and let go of what you can’t. You’ll see some of both. It’s okay. All things work out in due time.
Saturday, Wheel Rx: Look for encouragement in small accomplishments, without expecting everything will necessarily be to your liking, at least just quite yet. Lucky breaks are on the horizon, but not quite here yet.
Sunday, King of Cups: Emotionally replenishing day on order! Eat well, drink a little if you like, and spend time doing whatever speaks to your heart–preferrably with people who also speak to your heart.
Overview/Advice, Six of Pentacles Rx: Give others a chance to figure out their own problems. You’re not doing favors by stepping in before you’re asked. Focus your energy this week on yourself and what you need.
Affirmation, Four of Wands: Celebrate the good. There is always some, and it’s always worth celebrating. And from this celebration, your sense of security and abundance grows. This is one, very important way you can be the light. ♥
