Re-Balancing Energy: 1. Checking In With My Root

So I created a spread for me to do on occasion throughout the year to check in and re-balance myself, and well… it’s daunting. It’s 9 cards, 18 if you do the second part and that’s a lot for someone to do all at once! It certainly felt like that for me, though I’m working a bit low right now, so I had the idea to just take it in bits, check in daily and work with myself in sequence. I’ll do the current status “how do I….” question first, and immediately follow up with the reinforcing “how should I…” question next. With follow up spreads as necessary.

QUESTIONS:
1. How do I hold and support my being?
2. How should I hold and support my being?

1. How do I hold and support my being?
ACE OF SWORDS (Chamomile) (REVERSED) – now how many times must I receive this card in reverse? Apparently, until I start listening! Currently I’m holding myself in a place of uncertainty with a tendency towards self-destruction. Wow. Absolutely true, but still hard to hear which is why I’m receiving this card so much. For it to be coming from root, no wonder I feel unsteady and doubtful!

2. How should I hold and support my being?
KNIGHT OF SWORDS (Wild Cherry Bark) – hello, call for balance! I need to reorient myself towards my true north. I have to locate my truth, and be ready to defend it without attacking others for theirs. The knight sees the big picture, gaze is toward the horizon and while the sword is drawn, it is on their shoulder, ready but not always on the attack. My tendency towards directness, forthrightness, bluntness must be tempered so it is not a mask to hide whatever uncertainty and doubt might lie beneath.
