Today’s rune is Gebo (Gift) which is all about giving and receiving; about reciprocity. It symbolises friendship and cooperation. So what could be my gift for today and/or what would by my gift to others? To answer this question I pulled the Son of Swords from the Wild Unknown Tarot. My first reaction was, how could this card be possible a gift? But in the light of recent events, it gradually made sense to me. Today M and I had an important doctor appointment. The gift for me was to be able to let go of my overly aggressive protective demeanour while talking to our physician. (yes, I still can act like a vicious mother bear sometimes) and to feel relaxed and confident about the positive outcome of our conversation. My gift to our physician was that I could formulate my thoughts more clearly now about the subject and thankfully the three of us came to a very satisfying solution.
This experience will remind me that some equanimity during a difficult conversation is often more effective than barging in, being totally convinced that my way of seeing things is the right one and the need to convince everybody of my point a view who thinks slightly different.
The know-it-alls in the white coats can really get our hackles up.ReplyDelete
Luckily she didn't wear a white coat and was quite knowledgeable and very kindDelete
What a great post (that I really can relate to). I've noticed when I barge in with my demands and opinions, I often cut off the conversation before it ever gets started. Glad you could relax, listen, discuss and come to a satisfying conclusion.ReplyDelete
Yes we could be long lost cousins :DDelete
We are both extremely grateful for this. Worrying time is over. Now we can take action.
