This deck was given to me by a friend, as you may recall from a prior post. I really like its artwork and its thoughtful wording. Every so often I’ll pull a card randomly to see what tidbit of truth the Universe wants to toss my way. There’s always something in it for me, especially when I can look at myself honestly.
For me, this card is a great reminder to get out of my own way. I’m the type of person who likes to have a plan and who tends to gather up all of her little duckies to get them in a nice, straight row. This is a big part of my personality, which has served me well, but I also recognize that it can make me miss the forest for the trees.
Too much ego can take over with my organizing if I’m not careful. If I’m trying too hard for a particular outcome, I might not pick up on pieces of intuitive information that are vying for my attention because my brain is striving too hard. There may be a completely different flock of ducks that I’m not considering, which could turn out to be even better for my particular scenario.
Being on autopilot closes me off to more possibility, and I really try to catch myself when I backpedal. Trusting openness is what fuels my inner guidance system, where nothing has to be a certain way, where awareness just flows. That trust takes practice, and when I get it right, it’s a great place to be.
