Do you ever wake up, as if having been in a long sleep, and realize you have "lost your power" - (psychobabble) or "lost your mojo" - (pop culture babble)? Well I have, a few times!! 

Quoting a Mexican shaman my daughter and I met a few years back while vacationing in Mexico, "it is possible to give away so many little bits of yourself in various relationships, jobs or 'things' - that it becomes time to have a good talk with one's self and re-evaluate the who, what and where's of your life and gather those bits back up!"  He was very wise!  

This task is mostly an inner process, but can have consequences on the outer if some 'housecleaning' is called for.  Well, this week was just like that for me.  It takes courage to 'have this little - where is my mojo - talk' and even more courage to implement the changes one has to implement in order to 'gather their little bits' back, according to my Mexican friend. 

There are many adages that speak to this...when one door closes, another door opens, out with the old, in with the new.  Ecclesiastes 3:1 (Bible)...For everything there is a Season...says it quite perfectly.  It is well worth a read if you are not familiar with it, and well worth a read if you are familiar with it.  Time to take back our power, dig in the roots that will sustain us for the winter as the long winter nights are soon coming upon us.  We need the sunshine of our inner meditative work to shine brightly within.

Today's card is dedicated to 'thinning out' - to 'simplifying', to de-stressing one's life by finding and re-claiming one's 'lost bits' while standing up, shouting the praises to G-d and singing "I am becoming, one reclaimed bit at a time, the person I've longed to be!"  SQUISHY HUGS.
