Sentimental Feelings, Emotions, Take the Next Step
Is it really a surprise that our first card in today’s Butterfly oracle reading is Sentimental Feelings? With Thanksgiving here and Christmas quickly approaching, many people are finding themselves longing for the past and the way things were. This card can symbolize that it’s time to address deep wounds and hurt feelings that may be unresolved from your past. With COVID-19 still posing a threat at Thanksgiving time and many people still mourning the loss of loved ones, the holidays are taking on a somber feeling this year.
Life is a painful journey, and it isn’t always sunshine and rainbows. Many times life hurts and sometimes it takes every bit of strength you have to move forward. As long as you have hope and believe that things will get better, and keep moving towards your goal, you will make it. But that doesn’t mean it will be easy. The only way to move through painful memories and grief is to keep moving through them. It is a hard and difficult process, but it can be done.
Our second card in today’s reading is Emotions. This card asks you to examine the emotions that you are currently feeling and if you discover areas that are no longer acceptable because you have changed, grown, or have a different awareness or perspective, then you must acknowledge them.
Changing emotions are part of life and are also part of your growth. The way you feel about a situation or person 2, 5, or 10 years down the road is bound to change. Not everyone is comfortable with change and they want to stay in unhealthy or toxic situations to avoid making a life change. This card doesn’t mean that you have to do something radical to change your life, but it does tell you to be aware of what is going on and be open to any changing views that you have regarding a situation, experience, or person. The more you grow and the more mature you become, the less accepting you will be of toxic and negative situations.
The first step in dealing with changing emotions, viewpoints, and perspectives is to acknowledge them.
The final card in our Butterfly oracle reading is Take The Next Step Now.
Life can be hard, and change is challenging. Though many of us hold on to our dreams throughout our lives, very few actually achieve them. It takes determination and hard work to achieve dreams and goals, and sometimes the process seems daunting. We can easily become discouraged if we focus on the end result and can’t see how to achieve it. Begin by taking baby steps. Every day, make sure you do one thing that will lead you closer to your destination. One step per day is 365 steps to your goal per year. Don’t be afraid to take that first step and don’t make the mistake of thinking that one step isn’t enough.
Though you may deal with painful memories and changing emotions, keep moving forward. By taking small steps every day, you will eventually reach your goal.
