Today's self-care card is Silence – Rest your mind. Silence is good self-care.
The card is a forest scene like from an old book. We see the lower part of 3 trees. The only green we see is from a little bit of grass on the ground and some leaves draping down from the rear tree. The sun breaks through the leaves in the background. Resting on piece of a fallen log is a woman. We can only see her red lips and face with closed eyes. She is enveloped in a pile of dried brown leaves. They lay atop her head and just a hint of her dark blond hair peaks through. And what do we see in the forefront peaking from the left side of the tree? A lovely brown colored owl stares at us from his visible right eye.
Being in nature can really ground us. Even though there may be noise, we can become one with the earth and its creatures and find that inner silence that lurks within our souls. The number three deals with intuition, creativity, new adventures and success. And what does the owl signify? The owl is a creature of the night and the moon, filled with wisdom and prophecy. You can meditate about the owl and information will be revealed to you, including hidden messages. In order for us to be able to visualize and vocalize our heartfelt dreams, we must dwell in silence periodically, as the owl has learned to do. For silence restores our spiritual vitality, provides insight into the depths of our soul and allows ours dreams to manifest and flourish.
Here’s wishing you peaceful silence.
