Geeeeeooo the Slooow: Slow Down and Take a Breath

Right now I am sitting here listening to the rain dripdripdrip outside, It’s lovely, it’s beautiful, and so nourishing to my soul. Every week I like to pull a card to share with you from one of my Oracle Card Decks. This week’s card comes from Brian Froud’s The Faery’s Oracle. Which I absolutely love. Faery Wisdom is so whimsical and insightful.

This week’s card is Geeeeeooo the Slooow

slow downCycles of Time. Slowness. Waiting. Patience.

Geeeeeooo is the Gnome of slow processes. He ponders the important things like “How long will it take for water to smooth a rock at the bottom of the river. How much taller will that mountain be in a million years?” He lounges around, watching, making sure that life happens just how it is supposed to… slowly. If you rush things you’ll do a horrible job of it, ya know?

Geeeeeooo shakes his head in confusion as he wonders why we speed around daily life, ignoring the small changes around us. He doesn’t understand why we rush around trying to accomplish everything with the idea that we are making things good for ourselves later but never now. Where is the sense in that?

Take this moment to slooooow down.

Sit back, take a deep breath. Are you hurrying and rushing anything along? Are you stressed out by trying to fit too much in your day? Try to slow down and relax, work on your patience.

Notice where frantic energy is invading your life and make a conscious effort to slow it down and breathe.

How do you plan to slow down today?
