Wildwood : Bridge The Gap

This week, we’re going to bridge the gap for the Story Board. Katie at my Tarot group came up with this gem about a year ago. We call it “The Bridge Spread” and here’s how it works.

We all find ourselves at a place where we need to build a bridge, but how?! Working out where you’re coming from, where you want to be, then working out how to connect the two, can help!

This week, I asked: What do I need to build a bridge over? Using The Wildwood app, I pulled these three cards. The card on the left is the Starting Point and this week, we have the Four of Vessels. I’m not bored, but I am in a cycle of wasted energy. Like most people in England’s green and pleasant land, there are thousands of parents waiting for the kids to go back to school. For some, it cannot come soon enough! I’m not bored, but I find doing things with the three kids in tow, almost impossible. These tasks do include doing the weekly shopping, going for blood tests, even visiting the doctors, is hard work!

The Destination is the Ace of Bows, the card on the right. I am looking for a spark, divine intervention. No, I’m not looking someone to sweep me away from this life, not even for a day! I am looking for my muse, my own spark. Being worn out does mean I’m not engaging as I would normally like to be. Perhaps that comes across as bored, but I think worn out is more accurate!

The Bridge is what to do to join the two together. See that wonderful middle card? It’s saying have fun! Seek out and find my Joy! (And I now have Arwen’s voice saying that in my head!) So, get out, let my hair down and feel like a woman! (Shania Twain). I am sure though that I am not the only one that needs to let my hair down and chill out.

I did a pretty good job of that last night, with a bottle of wine, one of my best friends and crafting birthday cards for my very soon to be nine-year old! It was good to just chill out and not fret about things. Okay, so I’ve a birthday cake to bake, but since that’s fairly simple (and not as complicated as he originally wanted!) I can do that as late as tomorrow!

So, what do you need to bridge over? Have you explored what questions your inner self has to ask? Often, concentrating on what you need to know, rather than having a specific question, you’ll get the answers you need! I’ve been working on a few business things this week and I’m being made to think, my brain hurts as a result! And that’s good!

If you’d like to find the answers within, you can seek my help here! Helping someone find their answers, makes me happy too!

  1. Hello! My challenge is also partly in waiting for school to start, although I am a little emotional since my eldest is off to big school for the first time next week, and my youngest starts pre-school, so it’s a big change of routine in our house. Part of me is excited and ready for the new phase in life, and part of me wants to hang on to what we have, safe and comfortable… but, that’s human nature. As for my Muse, well, she is screaming at me right now and I don’t which task to work on first, so a bit of alone time will be very welcome next week and during school term… πŸ™‚

    1. My muse I’m sure, it’s spark out, somewhere under a hedge, drunk as a skunk! Either that, or hiding in a cave πŸ˜‰ big school, huh? My eldest is 9 tomorrow, middle is about to go into year 1 (after doing reception & some of year 1 last year) and my baby… She’s not old enough for preschool. Thankfully! πŸ™‚
