card 11 lizard 1122
Wow so today is about being real… with ourselves and others. No More pretending or running away from your emotions, your feelings. Take stock in them, embrace them so that you can understand yourself on a deeper level. Then ACCEPT what is shown to you. Be real with yourself and each other. Relationships with ourselves or others is work, everything is constantly changing and evolving… hopefully into positives. But in order for that to happen we have to work for it. Hey it’s worth it…you are worth it… so remember that!

Just learn to be real with it, not hiding behind what you think people want to see in order to care or love you. If they love, care and respect you, they will work with you and accept your flaws with your best qualities. If it feels they are not then release them or the situation. Just remember to make sure it is not your own imaginations and ego stepping into play before you do. For it may just be that and you need to be the one to release the self fears and doubts, for the positives have been there right in front of you all the while.

Lizard steps up to share with us that we may be repeating old cycles, recreating things because we have been doing them so long, it feels more natural that stepping into something new or opening the doors to something that is unknown. It tells us although we are able to face our fears, we often do not want to deal with them.

Lizard also shares truths about “EGO”, that often as human we are ruled by it. So what may be needed at the moment is to take a step back and let out hearts take over. Our “EGO” is often all to ready to step in and rule, so take time to really look deep within what is resonating with our hearts before making decisions or saying something we may regret.

Lizard shares that we are able to use all our “senses” as they were given to us at birth, rely on them, hone them and watch for situations that may not serve us and then remove ourselves from them or to step into the positive ones we need to move with. It is time to awaken what lies beneath, the unconscious mind that has been hiding things we have not wanted to deal with. Lizard will allow us to move them to the forefront so we can process through them and get rid of what is no longer needed and place us back to reality. We are all human, we are all flawed and the Lizard teaches us it is ok to be this way. Release as they release a tail, what needs to be let go, then move ahead and regrow in more positive ways.
