I have this unrelenting need to liked.

Formed at a young age and intwined with my personality, I need to be adored. For years I said yes to things my heart screamed no to. I worked too many jobs, filled my time with toxic friends, because I believed my yes would make me the ‘good guy’, fill me with their love, lift me in their esteem. I had to teach myself that sometimes you have to let people down, sometimes it’s ok to be the ‘bad guy’. When being the ‘bad guy’ means saying no, in order to say yes to yourself. Through saying no, through setting boundaries, I learnt the true value of yes. I began to say yes only to the things that filled me...

Being in touch with my true calling, being in touch with the universe, can be exhausting. I always thought ‘spiritual awakenings’ would be all light and love, that frequent mediation practice would overflow calmness into all aspects of my life, that self-care habits would bring enlightenment.

What archetype in the Tarot most reminds you of yourself? Why?

July 19th | What archetype in the Tarot most reminds you of yourself? Why? | Queen of Cups | The Linestrider Tarot Deck The Queen of Cups is an ‘emotional woman’, and I relate to that all too well. Society would have you believe that being an emotional woman, is the worst thing you could possibly be. They do not see the beauty in emotions, they do not see the strength in diving into the deeper inner parts of your soul. I used to believe when they told me you shouldn’t be so intense all the time. That people tire of swimming in the deep end and sometimes they need a break in the shallows. I am the deepest part...
