Four Robins eggs are safely tucked away in a nest made of twigs, leaves moss, and grasses. The nest is hidden for everyone who would want to take a peek or who might want to disturb it.
This card is the equivalent of the Four of Swords and is all about making a safe haven for yourself where your mind and soul can come to rest. This can be through meditation, prayer, making art or by just sitting quietly and doing nothing.
Be aware of predators who want to invade your little sacred nest. They are not always the needy people in your life but also the inner ones; the Ego voices who want to distract you from taking a time out and trying to listen to the little soft voice of your intuition, which is often merely a whisper. Try to be aware of the distractions your Ego is setting up for you.
Lately I find myself again being very susceptible for the temptation and compelling pull of the internet. Many things I haven’t thought of myself I seem to need and sometimes obsessively WANT. It is hard for me to let go of these alluring objects and but when I do succeed, most of the time it feels like I am set free. This is a strong indication I didn't really needed/ wanted it anyway.
This morning I've read something very inspiring in “Simple Abundance” by Sarah Ban Breathnach. In her essay for today she wrote:
“Today, deliberately turn away from the world. Don’t read the newspapers or watch the nightly news for a week—longer if you can stand it. Shun the glossy magazines featuring expensive suits designed for success. Wean yourself away from the opinions of others—however talented, creative, and celebrated they may be—as you continue to journey within. Absorb the shock of becoming aware that many of your preferences and opinions are not truly your own. Begin, instead, to listen for the whisper of your authentic self telling you which way to go.”
I suppose it is all about balance. I wouldn't want to be without internet as a whole but some clear boundaries would be very healthy....
