Stuck in the Mud
“You’re being invited to stop and savor the wonder of your life.”
When this card is reversed, it reminds you that you’re stuck due to your obstinate desire to get what you want, when and how you want it. Perhaps it’s uncomfortable to admit that the course of action you’ve chosen for yourself isn’t right for you now. Even so, you have a choice. You can struggle in the mud and get nowhere; or take a moment to observe where you are, then step out, wash away the dirt, dry off, and find other things to do. A much better adventure awaits you. You’ll know when it’s time to embark upon it.
Becoming stuck is sometimes the only way to trick yourself into slowing down and looking around you. In fact, this is a sign that you need to shift your focus away from what you’re doing and place your attention elsewhere. Struggling will only get you to even muddier places. Now is not the time to move forward, but to observe. Clarity about your circumstances will come a little later. Stop and find the joy in what you’ve been overlooking. Soon you’ll be out of the mud, but for now, be still and know that Spirit has a plan for you.
