Hi, I'm just going to post it all out now. Knight, thanks for my reading, I'll do feedback after posting your readings I'm so sorry it's taken so long! Argh!
1. What should I focus more in my everyday life?
The Mummy asks you to consider ways to make significant, positive changes in your life. As life, and our inner work, is an ongoing, unfinished process, Mummy suggests you need to be open to transformative change--big-picture shifts in how you see the world, what direction you're taking and how naturally you listen to signs. If you think of mummies and their original purpose--the dead prepared for their journey into the afterlife--what kinds of steps can you take to prepare yourself for considerable change? Don't be afraid to make big changes when the time arises--however, these should be gradual, healing, and gear-shifting changes, not sudden gambles (see #2).
2. What should I focus less in my everyday life?
Apple (risk and reward)
Avoid risky gambles. The apple is a tantalizing offer, but it may be poisoned. You don't know till you bite, and then it's too late. The apple in this context suggests risks taken without proper planning, preparation or knowledge. You should focus less on taking wild or unnecessary risks to incite the change you seek--instead falling back on the slow, sure, logical and intelligent process of the mummy. Don't jump. Learn, read, study. Then make an informed choice for major change, rather than sudden, scattered or quick decisions to initiate change. Making rash decisions might have immediate impact (the bite of the apple tastes good), but it won't produce lasting results (like the mummy's artfully prepared body that can last an eternity). Be smart. Be present. Do you homework. Listen to your gut instinct and focus less on the speed with which you make major things happen. Take your time instead.
3. What could I focus more in the grand scheme of things?
Hearth (happiness in our hearts and homes)
A very warming, comforting card! Slow down a bit. Take stock of your home, your surroundings, the places you feel confident and whole, the people whom make you feel good about yourself and your future. Since your other cards are advising a process of informed change, this card makes sense as it takes away the instability of quick action, giving you permission to take your time, to commune meaningfully with others and to carefully establish the kind of base in your life that is trustworthy, supportive and solid. If you've been feeling that your life is turned upside down, or you feel loss, analyze what *does* make you feel whole and safe, what makes you feel most together, and find ways to bring more of that into your life.
4. What should I focus less in the grand scheme of things?
Skull of Darkness (blind spots)
Stop worrying. I know, easier said than done. Stop focusing on the negative when you can. Stop counting all the things that have gone wrong, or could go wrong, and slow down, look inside, look to your closest allies, build long, slow sweeps to bridge troubled waters to a more stable other side. This skull reminds us that we sometimes can't see the forest for the trees, and it may be telling you that when you focus on the trees, you can't see the path that takes you out of trouble. Allow yourself to look around, to see, to take down your blinders and address everything with clarity. What is it you really do need to change in your life? What is actually fine, but only seems troubled?
5. What new skill would be beneficial for me?
Practice being true to what you believe, to what you want, feel, need, think, and desire. I sense you're always doing things to please everyone else, or you feel responsible for making others comfortable before yourself more often than you take care of yourself. Be kind to yourself. It's okay to be mindful of your own needs. It does not mean you're greedy and selfish. A little bit of selfish is protective and good. Make sure you're doing what your heart desires, rather than always putting your own self on the back burner. Be whole, authentic and real.
6. What I'm still holding on that doesn't serve me at all?
Joy (rejoicing in the present)
An interesting card to see here, as it is a very positive one.
I would say that this is advising you not to put on a happy face and be pretend happy, when you really need to just let out what you're feeling. Don't feel obligated to hang on to "put on a happy face" and have a good cry, a good venting session. Be true. Don't be fake for the sake of others' feelings.
It also tells me that things are better than they seem, even when they're darkest.
