At first, today’s crystal and card pull can seem contradictory. On the one hand, you have healing, while on the other, there is addiction. Together though, there is a reminder to look at how you have grown from overcoming your fears.
Moss Agate, with its strong connection to nature, brings refreshment to the soul and enables you to see the beauty in everything around you. When things are going well, when life is treating you kindly, it’s easy to remember the good. It’s during the difficult times though, when you seem to find yourself stuck in a story that never changes and when it seems easier to continue with the status quo than it is to change them that beauty can seem lost in the bigger picture of things.
For now, take a look back on where you have been able to surmount the challenges of the past. These challenges may have come from actual addictions, negative thinking, or harmful behaviors. Was there a point where you said enough was enough and you turned yourself around? That nudge may have come from other people, or it may have come from yourself. It may have gotten to the point where the pain of staying the same was more painful than knowing things needed to change.
Whatever it is, be grateful that you have given yourself the opportunity to move on. For me, that has translated to letting go of friendships with people whose negativity was draining, some of them good friends too. It has also meant leaving behind jobs where I knew I was no longer growing.
Life is all about change and growing from the changes that occur. That growth is easier when you have the right support system in place. Programs like Big Brothers Big Sisters helps people, in this case children, develop supportive relationships with positive mentors and role models. Wherever you are in life, find your team who will stick by your side, through the good and bad. They’ll help you ride through the storms and grow from your fears with ever more grace and ease.
