Ask & Embla

Daily Draw: Ask and Embla, Origins

Today’s draw is a reminder, friends, that we come from somewhere. We didn’t just appear here or wake up one day in diapers. I mean, the parent sex is all fine and everything and without that we wouldn’t have a suit to live in, and it’s awesome that we do, but there’s more going on than that. We must remember that we have deeper roots than we can possibly imagine as we’re running errand after errand, fixing this and paying for that, doing all these essential things for living here that have very little to do with where we come from. Now, I know that being a sacred, magical star being doesn’t pay the bills. I get it, believe me. I’m in that whole “need to pay bills and I don’t have a steady source of income oh my god you guys” space myself right now, so I understand. But I think I’m being reminded with this reading, and all you guys are being reminded too, that there’s much more going on here than just the bills and the worry and the errands and the taxes and all the other things we need to do just to survive. There’s more. So maybe spend just a little time today tapping into that Source somehow: take a few deep breaths, slow down, or maybe do an affirmation or two about the ancient nature of your ancestry. Whatever works for you to help you remember that you are more than your problems and errands. You are more than your to-do list.
