This is a wild little interactive book that I've had for years but haven't looked at in ages. I inherited it from my sister, and it's called Goddess, Guide Me!: Divine Wisdom for Your Head, Heart, and Home by Amy Zerner and Monte Farber. The wisdom of 12 goddesses is divided into head, heart and home. You roll 3 die and come up with your unique combination of advice for the day.
Lately I've been taking in the feedback from The Next Chapter Survey and thinking about the work I want to do in the world, the people I want to help, the magic I want to spread. Most days it's wildly exciting and I'm full of enthusiasm for what's next. And every now and again, usually when I'm tired or have put a tad (or a ton) too much on my plate, I hit that place of overwhelm and need pep talk. That's when I turn to my encouragement box (Thank you again to all of you who have been contributors!) and also to tools of self-reflection, like journaling or tarot.
Today I was inspired to pull out Goddess Guide Me and hear what advice might come my way. Talk about on target! Here's a sampling of the 'stay the course' advice I received.
