Today I decided to pick a card from the Fool’s Wisdom oracle card deck and the card I picked is The Peace Fool.  The archetype of the Fool offers an objective unedited view our ourselves…..providing guidance, assistance, and direction.

The message for someone reading this is….whatever is going on around you right now…..any intensity, craziness, drama, pressure, stress… is important for you to set your boundaries and not get pulled into it all.  Observe it and acknowledge it without experiencing it.

You can recognize the stresses and pressures without letting them effect you by detaching and let it all pass without effecting your inner world.  If you totally block it all out and deny it, it will all still pester you, building up to the point of exploding in order to get your attention.  If you just see it all for what it is without diving into it….it will pass rather than fester.

The best way to handle any challenging situations you are facing right now is to choose peace.  Don’t argue, don’t dwell, don’t criticize, don’t judge…..see the situation like……..”okay….I am not going down that road….if others want to great….but I choose to peace….not conflict.”   Take a few slow deep breaths if people are pushing you buttons…..if you must respond….respond calmly and make it clear that you are not contributing to any negativity.  Its easy to get sucked into criticism, judgement, and drama…..that’s why its good to get this reminder….we are all really better off letting stuff go….not dwelling on the negative….choosing peace.
Keep this in mind as certain situations present themselves today or this week… will be better off and will be glad you were prepared.
One other message here is to make sure you are getting good rest….lack of rest can lead to a lack of peace….a short fuse.  If you’ve been having a hard time sleeping….get your blood pumping at some point during the day……go take a quick brisk walk….even at night if you have to….though morning or daytime is best.  Also…..avoid late night eating…..also avoid caffeine in the afternoon.  Instead of caffeine…..try a fresh juice from a juice bar for energy (not a bottle….freshly juiced juice with veggies)….or make it at home.
I will be back tomorrow with another card of the day…..have a great Thursday!!!
