A meditation for the week of November 1 – November 6

Shhh. This week may I remember to slow down and listen to my body, mind, and spirit. What kind of rest or refill do I need?


I had to smile when I saw these cards. Such a welcome message! I took Sunday to rest, and I worked like a dog yesterday during the day so I could enjoy Halloween evening with Mr. Donkey and our visiting trick-or-treaters. (Hence this meditation being a day late this week! I needed to unplug.)

The last three weeks’ meditations have been¬†so wand-heavy. This week’s cards urge you to stop and listen to your inner voice: what does you body, mind, and/or spirit tell you you need? Do you need rest? Do you need to engage in something (or with someone) in order to refuel or refill yourself? Take a nap, go for a walk, meditate, read a book, or cuddle a loved one (human or animal!). Your health — physical, mental, and spiritual — is incredibly important. Treat yourself and listen to ¬†yourself like someone valuable.
