What a great card for today as I return from a social media break. We all have moments where for our own good and sanity we must step away from the computer, turn off our phones, and spend time with loved ones, with ourselves, and in nature. Life becomes so hectic that we lose touch with our own spirit. Constantly are we bombarded with external energies, ideas, beliefs, and/or concepts that we literally can feel as if we are being swept out to sea. If you have noticed feeling this way, take time away from social media to really disconnect with the world and instead reconnect to your spirit. You may learn things you never even realized you didn’t know. I had this experience after struggling with an issue for 5 years! 5 years!
Breaks are good and vital. When its time to return, you will do so feeling much better, inspired, grounded and centered. Almost like a new person.

Card of The Day-7 April 2017
The Keeper of the Scales (Reversed)
An entire sea of water can’t sink a ship unless it gets inside the ship. Similarly, the negativity of the world can’t put you down unless you allow it to get inside you.”
― Goi Nasu
Most would say that life isn’t fair. There are always going to be trials, struggles, and even people who are just hellbent on upsetting you. Don’t take these to heart as they are merely opportunities for growth and learning. If you should find yourself having been swept up by these events, including certain political events that occurred last night and yesterday, remember to give yourself permission to practice some self-care. Do what you must in order to bring your inner self back into balance—back into your calm and peaceful mind. Don’t let yourself be swept away with drama and gossip as it’s only going to continue to strike a discord within yourself, thus moving your inner balance further out of balance. Today, take a break. Focus on you. You can’t be a world changer, a light bringer, or even just your own self unless you are balanced and in complete harmony with yourself. Change starts with ourselves before we can even attempt to right the wrongs of the world.
From the Wisdom of the Hidden Realms deck by Colette Baron-Reid
This is a gentle reminder from Spirit that you must take time out of the day where you can shove everything aside and focus on you. Seek some alone time. I find this especially important right now as we are constantly bombarded by negativity in the news, our lives, and on social media. Today, take some time throughout your day in which you purposely focus on yourself. Check into how your feeling. What energy is sticking around that isn’t yours? Breathe and just be. Embrace the stillness. Meditate. It’s all about self-care and acts of self-love.
