“Giving in is the collapse of the self under the pressure of another………”
I still wasn’t out of the woods yet.
I still wasn’t completely back to myself, but I was getting warmer.
On the Monday after a healing I pulled a card to see what she was teaching me.
For those of you who have followed my blog for a while, you’re going to love this…….
But this time it was inverted – which in this oracle deck meant it had a slightly different meaning.
“Giving in is the collapse of the self under the pressure of another.
What do you want to happen here?
Are you letting something slip through your fingers without a protest?
Are you really going with the flow or just meekly following the path of least resistance and letting someone else call the shots?
Could it be that your low self-esteem is undermining your authority?
You may feel like you’re being very understanding and easy-going. But with your hands up in a gesture of surrender, you could easily be robbed of what is rightfully yours, or taken somewhere you don’t want to go.
Stop saying, ‘It doesn’t matter’ or ‘I don’t mind’ when deep down it does and you do.
Sometimes we are faced with situations where we have to fight to keep what we have or for what we want. Not with anger, desperation or wild emotion, but through clearly expressed feelings and strong boundaries.
Review what is happening.
Don’t let anything happen that you don’t want to happen, without protest.
You may not get what you want, but that isn’t the point.
The point is that you engage with the situation rather than stand back in mute acceptance”
