Daily Draw: The Wild Unknown Tarot, The Hermit
Last summer I had a reading at the wonderful Spiritual Connections in Whitby. When the hermit came up as the card signifying me my reader looked a little apologetic and said 'This doesn't mean that you're a loner or strange...' My response 'I'm fine with being a hermit and if people think that's odd I'm ok with that too'
At that point the whole energy of the reading changed. His face lit up, we both relaxed and he began to share with me his fascinating research on hermits through history.
Susan Cain writes that one third to a half of us are introverts and yet we are conditioned by society to think the extrovert is the ideal.
My experience in Whitby reminds me of the importance of not living in camouflage. Sharing our own light of truth we invite others to share theirs.
Here is the magic of the nine which always returns to itself.
..some animals naturally carry shelter everywhere they go, and...some humans are just the same.
Susan Cain, 1968 -
