Last week I drew Pele, and for me the resounding message this past week has been to pay attention to what I’ve been putting off or ignoring, and why I’ve chosen that path instead of making decisions that include risk.If we do not take risks in life, we stay in that safety zone which may be comfortable and bathed in homeostasis – but there is a price to pay. If you are not an active player in your own life, things probably won’t get too exciting.
You have to risk it to get the biscuit.
To me Pele’s message is about having faith in your fierceness and GOING FOR IT. Accept that part of the journey will likely include some form of baptism by fire. Don’t be afraid of the heat. It will pack some discomfort and perhaps at times be downright painful, but all necessary and worthwhile change in my experience always comes with that part of the challenge being met. Keep your eye on the prize. Always keep it in your sights. Be tenacious. And, when your goal seems to dance right outside your reach, make adjustments and go at it again. Steel is forged by fire. When I am feeling trepidation about stretching to achieve a goal I try to think of running toward the fire – not away from it. The things most worthwhile in life do not usually fall into your lap.
This week I drew the card for Freya. Enjoy!
“Unleash your adventurous side! Take risks and be daring.”
Message from Freya: “Do not play it safe right now. Instead, take bold action in the direction of your true heart’s desire. Success comes not from timidity but from committing yourself fully to realizing your dream. Hold the clear intention of success and it shall come about. Enjoy the excitement of taking risks, of being bold, and of being daring. And be sure to celebrate your success with a party or by splurging on a wonderful indulgence!”
Various Meanings of This Card: Take a risk * Make a bold life change * Appreciate your body * Flirt * Go have fun and celebrate.
About Freya (pronounced FRAY-yah) A Nordic earth goddess of fertility, celebration, and passion, Freya rides in a chariot pulled by mighty cats across the rainbow bridge connecting Heaven and Earth. Unafraid of her sexual power, Freya teaches us to appreciate out attractiveness, and to enjoy ourselves. No wonder, then, that the day of the week, Friday, was named in her honor, since this day is associated with the end of the workweek and a time for celebration.
