Strange Brain Territory


Is June over yet? In fact, I think I’m ready for 2014! This year has held some hard times and as we reach the half-way point of the year, I find myself reflecting, contemplating, and wandering into strange brain territory.

Strange Brain Territory: Thoughts that you aren’t used to, that make you feel wibbly.

Today’s card from the Wild Wisdom of the Faery Oracle is spot on for me at the moment. This card represents those exact feelings of wandering into new territory and the uncertainty that comes from that.

This Faery looks like she’d be in her element as she wanders through the woods. In reality she’s not confident, she’s nervous, and afraid that perhaps she’s not where she’s supposed to be. She’s hesitating, feeling unsure and awkward as to whether or not she should keep moving forward or go backward.

Wouldn’t a compass be great right now?

Usually when we feel out of our comfort zone, and out of our element, it’s a good thing. It means we are stretching, growing, blossoming, and moving. To do anything else invites stagnation in our lives, yet moving brings with itself a little bit of terror.

Question the path you’re on.

When you start feeling that uncertainty and that scardy-cat-ness, question it. It might be time to choose a new direction or it might just be time to choose a better attitude, to be brave and wander into the unknown with a pep in your step and a smile on your face. Get in touch with your inner compass. Ask yourself these questions:

Why are you scared?
What’s stopping you from wanting to move forward?
If you didn’t move forward, what would happen?
Will this path benefit you in the future?
Does this align with who you want to be?

Tap into that inner guidance and figure out where you are truly meant to be going, and what in the end, is going to make your heart and soul soar.
