I use tarot and oracle cards as tools for reflection and contemplation. Rather than divining the future, they are a way for me to look more deeply at the "now."

Mindfully Do Something Different

From the Sun and Moon Tarot, the Six of Swords; from the Wisdom Keepers Oracle, Mindfulness:

          Six swords pierce the symbol of the Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawn, a sign according to Decort of being able to think analytically. Complementing that meaning is the card Mindfulness - Intentionally observing each moment as it unfolds without judgment. In other words, we're watching without letting our emotional reactive patterns drive us to do what we usually do. There is a lojong slogan that says, "Don't be so predictable." It basically means that most of us have certain buttons that can be pushed that cause us to behave with all the regularity of a robot. But these cards suggest we don't have to stay in those emotional loops; with mindfulness, we can become aware of them, feel the discomfort of not acting on them, and practice doing something different.

Nature has endowed the human brain with a malleability and flexibility that lets it adapt to the demands of the world it finds itself in. The brain is neither immutable nor static but continuously remodeled by the lives we lead. ― Richard J. Davidson
