This article is shared from my patreon.com project www.bookoftarot.com as part of a series of meditations and exercises that I’m producing for each card in the series. You can download these images for free as wallpapers here.
As I’m dancing through the beginning of 2018, a lot of my focus is on what my goals are this year, and starting or moving forward with several large projects that are in progress. Having a lot of things on the go feels sometimes like rolling several giant boulders up a hill at once. It gets heavy. One day last week, as I was working my way through a rather large list of to do items, I started to feel overwhelmed, and I started to worry. “What if no one ever signs up for my tarot project?” “What if you do all this work and you never get anything off the ground?” “What if Trump blows the world up tomorrow?” And so on….. It was at this particular moment, while staring at my to do list, that I had a brain flash.
I looked at my list and thought “Actually Rayne, you don’t have time to worry about that.” And the idea that I really do have too much to do to be worrying about any of it and what might or might not happen was quite… satisfying. It is a little mental prop I throw into my brain to hold myself steady when I feel the worries start to cave in the roof. A little mantra when I get overwhelmed or start to procrastinate. Of course I still have my moments, but I’m finding it super helpful and wanted to share it with you. So here’s something fun and practical you can apply to your own worry-brain. I’ve wrapped up a nice package of amazing computer wallpapers/save screens for you to view here.
There is a set for inner worry and a set for external worries. They’re free to download for personal use, and to share as long as you link back to me and the site. I’d love to hear your own thoughts on this, and how it works for you- if it works for you.
