Today, besides my daily drawing of Runes, I decided that I needed some extra information about the changes (subtle or not) occurring lately. Therefore, I reached to my Faeries’ Oracle deck, and I picked The Sage.
Of course, I read the verbiage that comes with this card and the somewhat obvious explanations that had to do with turning inwards, wisdom and inner knowledge. But there was a bit more in there, at least for me, like the notion of cultivating detachment – which I have seen mentioned a few times over the past few weeks.
And what is detachment, besides cutting the cords of everything that binds you to something or someone, of not letting anything or anyone having power over you? The answer is right in front of your face: true freedom!
So I channeled The Sage to see what else he had to reveal to me personally, and here’s what he said:
“You need to forgive yourself in order to forgive others. Only self-love and self-compassion can allow healing to take place and bring the detachment needed to allow you to move forward, but more importantly to move on.
You are preparing the ground for the next step in your life and one always reaps what one sows. How do you want your future harvest to look like if the seeds you’re sowing are unhealthy?
Take the time needed for your physical and emotional self to truly heal… Only then can something good and truly magical happen to you. It is worth the work and the wait…”
While I manage to practice detachment somewhat successfully (the “I don’t give a f### about anything” philosophy is oh so delightfully freeing), the self-forgiveness part (which I had also heard mentioned by a close friend of mine) will probably be the real challenge for me.
We often complain about the negative situations we find ourselves in, and we often forget that we have a part of responsibility in these situations because, at one point or another, we allowed them to happen (consciously or not) but we should keep in mind that it is/was a necessary step and experience for our evolutionary process and path.
Therefore I will make a conscious effort to try to apply the wisdom of The Sage in my life and current situation…
