Card: XIV Grace – from The Mystical Cats Tarot by Lunaea Weatherstone.
“Find that place of inner harmony that allows you to move through any challenge with poise and grace. If you find yourself knocked off balance, assess what is needed to steady yourself again. Your ability to adapt to changing circumstances will make you sure-footed even in the most tempestuous of times. Seek tranquility.”
Message from the Faeries: When you look back at stressful events in your life, do you look back at yourself with pride or do you look back filled with regret with way in which you handled yourself? Those moments of regret are moments of measure. Were you respectful? Did you handle yourself with grace? Were you dignified in your actions and behaviour?
It is likely those moments that you look back in pride, that you handled yourself well under pressure. Grace is a quality that so very few people are born endowed with. It is a quality that is honed and refined with life experience. Those stressful moments you handled poorly were the teachable moments that have allowed you to refine yourself.
One way in which you learn to maintain grace and dignity, is to come to the understanding that there is no point in sweating the small stuff. Another important lesson is learning the temporal nature of existence. Most importantly, it is accepting that you can’t control how other people carry themselves, but you can take responsibility for the way you carry yourself and how react under various circumstances.
Of course, you can’t always control how you may react under adversity. However, once you’ve become determined to move through life with some quality of grace, you can observe yourself maneuvering through the world and hold yourself with a bit of pride. As far as we are concerned, there is no shame in having pride in oneself.
We love you and we are proud of you.
