Yesterday I went to the Adelaide Vegan Festival. It was an absolutely lovely day, full of friends, fun and Vegan scrumptiousness :). It was the first day I’ve spent out in the Spring sun since Spring began, and being as light skinned as I am I was scrambling for shade anywhere I could find it. I got to enjoy so many Vegan delicacies, and ran into a few people I haven’t seen for quite some time which was a blessing. I even got my hair wrapped, which I’ve wanted to do for so long and got the most beautiful complement from a stranger, who said my eyes were mesmerising and reminded her of her most treasured childhood marble :). All in all it was a lovely day!

Today when I woke up however I was feeling a little drained, originally I thought it was from all the sun but I think it may have also had something to do with running into a few people whom affect my emotions in a negative way. This realisation didn’t come to my mind until later today, and I believe it has something to do with the card I drew this morning :). Today’s Daily Draw was my new Tarot Stalker, The Hermit.

During October I drew The Hermit twice, one of which I wrote about here, and earlier this week in my Courtroom Drama reading I not only drew him, but he also came up through numerology as the most important card in the spread.  So when I drew him today, I decided that I needed to take some time to sit and think. And what came from this quiet time you ask? Well a whole lot of tears actually! I thought that I was getting stronger, coming to realise who I am and what I want from my life, but having this small thing yesterday cause pain today makes me wonder what else I am meant to learn from this situation? And what is it that The Hermit is coming to me for?

So I spent some time today simply sitting with my thoughts, and after a little more introspection, I think that The Hermit is coming to me as a kick in my backside from the Tarot, telling me that if I truly want to learn more about myself, and go on this journey of understanding, I really do need to let the distractions of the world have less of an affect on me! When things happen in the world that I have no control over, I must just let them be, and move on. I am who I am, in this moment in time, and my past is my past, I need to start living in the present so that I can create a future I wish to live in. A future where I am stronger, and have a deeper understanding of myself and what makes me tick! I hope that through this introspection I will come to realise what it truly is that causes me pain, and what will actually make me happy now. For yesterday really was a lovely day, and I shouldn’t let such small things get to me! I need to look at the positives that occurred, and that will occur in the future, rather than the things that bring me into a space of negative energy! And soon Mr Hermit, soon I will go on the journey you are suggesting, I just need to get my things in order, and I’ll be off 🙂

So, until next time, live well xx

  1. I’m loving the hair wrap and the beard!

    Letting go of the small things is easier said than done, but such a worthwhile endeavor. As I gradually am able to let go of more things I become lighter and happier. I wish you all the luck on your journey of letting these things go! Don’t be too hard on yourself and trust that you will reach the state of mind you are after. *hugs and encouragement* 🙂
