Lately, my being is occupied with myth, self-study, and yearning, to put things lightly. Compassion, patience, and a renewed sense of action are often the products of this combination of emotion and discovery. This has helped ease much of the pain I sense within others that I know internally that I cannot fix. I did an Answer Deck reading for myself recently where it said I needed to forgive myself for “Strength” – an odd urging it seemed, but considering it further I feel drawn to the suggestion that this is the next step to accepting my own vulnerability. I can forgive myself for building a rigid, stone structure around my emotional core. Now is the time to let the healing, teal water spring forth from inside, and smoothen the sharp angles of this travertine vessel.
