Have you ever worn the mask? Of course you have, we all do from time to time. But this week‘s message from spirit tells us it’s time to take the mask off and be true to ourselves. The Jumbie card, pulled from the African Goddess Oracle deck, draws on the famous Caribbean shadow spirits, known as “jumbies” who spark fear into adults and children alike. This card teaches us that as much as we like to fear the monsters in our closets and under our beds, sometimes the biggest “monster” of all is our own vulnerability.
What is the fear we feel in being honest about who we are and what we’re about?
Who do we feel will reject us if they see the real us?
Do those whose rejection we fear really matter?
Are you actually hiding from yourself? Are you the one rejecting who you really are?
These are the questions to ask yourself this week.
Our crystal of the week, obsidian, comes in to help us reflect as we answer these important questions. Obsidian encourages self awareness while helping usher in the groundedness we need to do like MJ said and (*cue music*) take a look at ourselves and make a change. Start with who’s in the mirror. YOU!
May your week be wonderful! We’re looking forward to seeing you at ADRSA 2022 on April 29th! Use code ASE10 to save!
