Looking back.

You know what happens when you are looking back instead of where you are going!? Yup, you trip and fall! Or you stumble or at best you are not looking at where you are going. And you’re missing out on all the wonderful things that are happening around you.

This message is certainly for me for there is this thing that makes me just so sad and I do carry that sadness with me in the present. It doesn’t mean that there shouldn’t be time to grieve because that is important too but that there is joy in the present too and both can coexist.

The message from the card today is to not discard or disregard your feelings but to be aware that there are things in the present that are being ignored because your attention is somewhere else. These are wonderful, beautiful instances, and people who are there in the present and they deserve your attention.

the unending sadness of Looking back, lucy cavendish, shapeshifter oracle.

The past cannot be changed and there are memories that may make you feel sad on and off for the rest of your life, that is natural. What isn’t natural is your living in the past and letting that past interfere with your now, your today and your tomorrows.

If you find that there is an inner child from your past that reacts adversely to what may be good for you, you could try talking to and soothing that inner child or you could seek help, because ignoring that inner child is not a good option. The child must be seen and heard in order for you to move forward. I’m consciously not using the word move-on because that seems like I’m leaving something behind and I would like to take all of me, with me as I move forward. I just wouldn’t want it to be a burden.

Keep your awareness on what of the past comes up for you today. What makes you sad or angry or disappointed and take a deeper look at it because it is something that is crying out for your attention. Be gentle with yourself while doing this because harshness or impatience will on subdue and suppress this part of you and it may come back up in untimely or unexpected ways. 

Much love today ❤
