Fuel shortages, empty supermarket shelves, electricity price hikes, impending blackouts…
While the world is becoming even more insane, it might be a good idea to tap into your inner Page of Wands – turning panic into excitement and an adventurous spirit.
After all, that’s all we can do, right?
Okay, we can also stockpile candles and pasta…
Life at the moment certainly isn’t boring.
With all the ongoing disruptions, we don’t know what’s around the corner, so it’s a bit like a suspense thriller.
Be mindful about how unsettling news and events affect your body – adrenaline surges, constantly lingering in fight or flight mode, increasing fear and foreboding, and the resulting emotional choices and actions we may later regret.
Cultivate a calming balance:
Create nice moments for yourself every day.
Find magic in the ordinary.
Work, rest, play in equal measures.
No need to do anything grand or fanciful. It doesn’t need to cost any money.
Often, all it takes is a change of perception.
Knowing that you can choose how you respond.
There is beauty, magic and bliss in the everyday mundane.
With the help of the Page of Wands, every day is a new adventure.
