Easy Does It: Slowing Down the Process
I like the message of this card I drew the other day from the Goddess Guidance Oracle Cards. I was sitting and (aptly enough) feeling impatient as my daughter enjoyed the day and swam at a local lake beach. I just wanted to get on to the next thing as fast as possible. But why? Sometimes I do things on auto pilot and I just feel like I'm rushing around for no reason whatsoever. This card is not only about patience but about a kind of slower, more gradual approach, one infused with the understanding that things take time and there isn't a need to rush--that rushing, instead, often leads us to make mistakes or throw babies out with bath water. In any case, it's a good reminder for me.
