My submission for the weekly challenge
Somehow time always slips away from me faster than I expect. Just realized that the deadline for this sooner than I thought, so I will have to continue after.
I spent most of this challenge working on my shadow self and chose to use two workbooks I found. The shadow work and cartomancy workbook has been illuminating if slow and challenging.
Hearing some of these things has been both a surprise and yet not shocking at all. Discovering and acknowledging these ideas is one thing. Learn to accept and integrate them is perhaps another.
My biggest challenge the past few months has been a strong friendship that changed over time into something that was frustrating and anxiety-provoking with the constant competition and lack of reliability. The actions and feelings were all too familiar as I realized with a shock while I’d bravely ended a destructive relationship last spring, I was back in almost the same situation. Patterns are hard to see sometimes and harder to break.
Reading another entry in this challenge I saw they did a cord cutting spell which felt like the perfect fit for this situation.
This is a work in progress. I am a work in progress. I am learning. I am growing. I am becoming.
I had to add this last spread in. I did it after I posted and cleared my mind and was thinking about tomorrow as I laid out my nightly spread…
- the Nine of Pentacles. Eerily fitting giving I’m trying to tame and understand my shadow self.
