Lefty Oracle of the Month: Homer on the verge of greatness
Mantra: I strive.
Affirmation: I let go of fear to be here now.
"Stop trying to be soooo great,"
my inner critic whines at me,
but do I listen?
I AM great
…in my own mind,
or am I?
Isn’t that supposed to be the End Goal?
Sadly, it feels like the race will never end.
I could be present right now
and have THAT be enough.
If this card appears in a reading it’s about time you asked yourself who you’re trying so hard to please and why it’s never enough. Instead of seeking approval outside of yourself go within and be your own best friend. You ARE good enough and, in fact you are the best YOU there is and the only YOU that will ever exist.
In my own life this card was inspired by my dad, and that story is a long one indeed. I learned a lot about what not do to in life from him, and for that I am grateful.
