A meditation for the week of October 17 – October 23

My passions matter. This week, may I honor myself enough to put time and energy into what excites me, drives me, and makes me who I am.

Ace of Wands & Eight of Wands

What gets your engine revving? What makes you smile just thinking about it? Where can you get lost for hours while feeling that only 10 minutes have passed? Have you been honoring your passions lately?

If the answer is no, this week’s cards urge you to honor that part of yourself! Our passions matter, but when we are feeling overwhelmed (as last week’s meditation spoke to), it’s easy to let what we get joy out of fall off of our “to do” list.  For most of us, our passions don’t pay the bills so we become hyper focused on work or on other obligations. It doesn’t feel like real work, and fun is for “free” time, right? Wrong. Our bank accounts need filling, but so do our souls.

Do you enjoy sewing? Making yourself something pretty. (Or spooky! Halloween is right around the corner!) Do you like reading? Hit the library or bookstore. How about dancing? Put a record on or go out with friends. Whatever it is that floats your boat and puts a smile on your face matters because you matter. Your soul is hungry — feed it! ♥
