A few months ago I found myself going through a very uncomfortable and difficult time. But during that time one thing was certain I was going to do what ever it took to get through it. I knew I wasn’t willing to take the easy way out (as I had so many times before) and just walk away. I had no desire to throw everything away that I had asked for and created. And since the definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again expecting a different result I knew I had to choose something different than I ever had. I knew something far greater was possible if I was willing to go through the fire.
The 8 of Cups reminds us to not give up just before the finish line. It’s always asking us to see that the rewards for our efforts are close but if you quit too soon you may miss the miracles and magical possibilities. Sure there are times when it is appropriate to walk away too so this card also asks us to have discernment. To follow what is light and avoid what feels heavy. That being said, even though whats light is best for everyone it is not always the most comfortable. Whats light is not always the easiest path but the rewards are far greater than you could ever imagine possible. Where are you choosing the most comfortable path rather than the most beneficial? What would be available if you let yourself get comfortable with being uncomfortable?
We all know a Phoenix rises from the ashes. A diamond is created through very intense high heat. The Earth is created from molten lava bubbling up through the ground. Glass and metal objects are formed and come together in the fiery furnace. Would you walk through the fire knowing something far greater than you could ever imagine is just around the bend? Take it from someone who just did, the rewards are even beyond comprehension, and so worth it!!!
Thank you for Being You!
