Boundaries. Let it go. It’s not yours to carry.
You don’t need to carry it all. You’re no good to anyone if you’re running on empty and bogged down by the weight of the world. This card is a reminder to look after your own wellbeing before anyone else’s. To stop carrying the world’s problems on your shoulders. To put on your own oxygen mask first. In these changing times, it’s hard not to feel overwhelmed by the state of the planet; however, you can’t take on its problems from a place of energetic depletion.
This card is thanking you for caring so much. You want to build a better world and ease the road for others – and that’s incredible. But the way you’ve been doing so is likely unsustainable. This isn’t to say you should switch off to the world’s problems and become unconscious; rather, it’s a call to establish clear boundaries so you’re not constantly taken out energetically. The planet needs you healthy, both physically and emotionally.
So, instead of digesting the news or reaching for your phone as soon as you wake up, show up first to a nourishing practice such as meditation, soul inquiry, deep breathing, or exercising in nature. Once you’re in a state of grace and your inner well is full, you can face the day and care for others. And at the day’s end, take an energetic shower by emptying out anything that’s not yours to carry. You can pick it up again the next morning, if you so choose, but give yourself time and space to rejuvenate and rest.
