Reflections Guidance Card 1
Aloneness – No. 3 (reversed)
Isolation is not our natural way of being. It is a place we go to, either from fear or hopelessness.
You seem to have forgotten that no man is an island and have cut yourself off from the nourishment and companionship others can provide. Consciously or unconsciously, you are avoiding intimacy, perhaps because at some time in your life you took in the message ‘love hurts’. But if you don’t take the risk of allowing someone to get close to you, you will never be able to heal this belief.
Dare to reach out of your protective cocoon, and try letting people in, too. Don’t wait for someone else to make the first move. Others may not realize that you feel shy or isolated, for you may give the impression of being self-sufficient, even proud. If you would only ask, they might be able to support you in stepping into the stream of life.
Let others know you feel vulnerable, but have the courage to meet them halfway. Remember, it’s not only you who is afraid.
Any experience that would connect you with the present moment would be helpful for you as you connect with others. Above all, follow your heart and seek those who will strengthen and nourish you.
Reflections Guidance Card 2
Anger – No. 4
Anger can be constructive as well as destructive.
It can be the fire that cleanses away the old,
making space for the new.
Or it can be the fire that just destroys.
It can be the hand that is raised to say ‘Stop!’
Or it can be the hand that strikes.
This reflections card wants you to know that you may be harboring resentment and using indirect ways of expressing your anger – through sarcasm, sulking, playing the martyr, or withdrawing. Perhaps you’re even acting very happy, as if to say ‘Look how not angry I am!’
You may not recognize that what you are feeling is, in fact, anger and believe it to be disappointment or hurt. So you may be surprised at getting this card. Maybe you find those feelings more acceptable, and are using them as a cover for your anger.
Some of us are so convinced that anger is wrong that we manage to persuade ourselves that we have no anger. But when anger is denied it either leaks out in passive-aggressive behavior or builds up, eventually bursting out in explosive rages. If there is no outlet at all, it can even make us ill.
Anger itself is not the problem. How we use it, can be. This reflections card suggests that the anger you are experiencing is appropriate, and in your situation you may need to consider doing something with it.
But first, identify what is blocking your anger. What are you concerned will happen if you say how angry you really are? That you will hurt someone? That someone else will become angry and perhaps leave? That you will be seen as bad, or unreasonable, or inconsiderate of others’ feelings?
Recognize that these are all avoidance strategies and see how your lack of expression actually comes from fear. That fear is of losing control – of yourself, of the other person, of the situation. And the fear is that of a child, not an adult. Maturity brings the ability to express feelings of anger, while holding back the destructive elements.
The best way to honor anger is to state what you feel cleanly, either at the time or as soon as possible after the event. To say ‘I am really angry!’ without lashing out. To simply express what you are experiencing, without the need to blame or manipulate the other person. to let go of controlling.
Sometimes our anger is selfish, lacking in either logic or an understanding of the other party, but that doesn’t mean we should suppress it. Just saying ‘I am so angry!’ can lead to a letting go of something that otherwise lurks in the shadows. – an avenging monster waiting for its opportunity. It can also lead to a clearing of the air and therefore bring you and your partner closer together, as you reveal more of who you are. You don’t have to get it right all the time!
Recognize that anger is essential: to defend our boundaries; to stop manipulation; to protect ourselves against hurtful, demeaning and even dangerous behavior; to maintain our personal power.
It is better to say ‘NO!’ at the wrong time, that not to say it at all.
Reflections Guidance Card 3
Letting Go – No. 20
Letting go is releasing that which no longer benefits us.
This reflections guidance card indicates that you need to consciously let go of something, someone, a way of being or even all three! Whatever it is, you have outgrown the need for it, but are finding it difficult to release.
Besides clinging out of habit, what ties us to things and people we have outgrown is primarily the fear that if we let go, nothing and no-one will ever take their place. So we dig in our heels and hold tight to what we know.
When one door closes, another door opens, and this card is symbolic of a progressive change that is waiting to happen. But only you can initiate it by releasing the old, and thereby making space for the new.
This is probably a stressful and confusing time for you. You may be aware of an inner voice urging you to make the decision to let go, but you are hesitating, sensing you would be moving into unknown territory. Perhaps you’re struggling to hold on to something or somebody. Maybe you’re fighting off the inevitable. Ether way, you must be feeling tired from all the effort!
In situations like this, it is tempting to hope that time, a magical being or the universe will intercede, removing the need for us to act. But that is precisely what cannot happen, when the need is to learn about letting go and plunging into the unknown. If we always played safe, we would end up going round a very small circle of experiences, learning very little.
It seems like you are sitting on a raft on a fast-flowing river, but you are still by the bank and holding on to a branch.
Perhaps you can see a few boulders downstream that look hazardous. You are understandably concerned at leaving this place of safety; worried where the river will take you and whether you can survive the rocky ride. But the river knows where it’s going, for this is your river of life.
Allow it to take you where you need to be. And allow, too, the feelings that are a part of any letting go. Let go and trust…
