Wednesday Wisdom #48 – Surrender To Grief

Each Wednesday I will begin the day by drawing a divination card for inspiration and posting it here.

With a few words from my intuition, I will give you something to think about for your day, and week.

Use the card as a writing prompt, or simply something to reflect on.

*I pick these cards at random, by shuffling a deck, and allowing a card to fall out on its own accord. Whilst shuffling, I ask God to show me what I need to see for this post, and all who read it. The message I give, may or may not correlate with the traditional meaning of the actual card.  It may not resonate with you, and that is OK – this is just my offering to you who reads this, it is sent with love and best wishes. Take what feels right for you, and leave what does not, for another.




(Letting go, Wisdom of Avalon Oracle Cards, by Colette Baron Reid)



I am sorry to sound like a broken record, but here we are again!

This week, the message of letting go continues, albeit with a different card, pulled from a different deck.

Last week saw notice to let go of the things that were no longer for you in life.

Today, I feel that we are being asked to let go in terms of our emotions.

I see the flowing water in the picture as permission to let the tears fall –  quite literally.

Is there something, or someone that you are grieving?


If so, let the pain from that agony find some release in you this week as you allow yourself to cry, or shout out, or simply completely fall apart.


Maybe you won’t be able to get out of bed one day as the weight of whatever you have been carrying holds you down.

Perhaps a situation that you have refused to look at, suddenly becomes overwhelmingly urgent.

This is a call to go with the flow in its most extreme expression.


Allow yourself to not hold it together this week,  if that is what you need.

Allow yourself to grieve, to wail for whatever has happened or gone wrong in your life, recently or years ago.


In our society we tend to hold our emotions in for fear of alarming others, or simply because we worry that allowing ourselves to let it all go for a moment, might mean we cannot stop crying, that we won’t be able to get it together again.


 I now understand that sometimes a good cry, is the perfect way to release what needs to go.


Grief serves a divine purpose in your life, allow it to take place, even if that takes the form of a duvet day and a fish finger sandwich.


Look for support if you need it, in the form of a medical practitioner, a bereavement counsellor or a trusted friend.


Know that with release, support and surrender – you will get through and live to fight another day, often wiser and stronger than before.


Much love Txx
