GENTLENESS: Be gentle towards yourself and others at this time. Being harsh or using brute strength won’t benefit you. There’s great strength in gentleness. This merman says that looks can be deceptive and gentleness can be found in the most unlikely people and situations. If in doubt, just look into the heart of the person – for this is where the source of true gentleness resides. The merman holds his torch of truth so that it may illuminate the path of gentleness for you.
This card is asking: are you being gentle with yourself? It’s easy to be critical and berate ourselves. Out internal dialogue isn’t always gentle, so this is something to be mindful of. If you catch yourself being harsh, then forgive yourself and try a softer internal narrative. You’ll be surprised at the effect this can have on your general well-being.
Someone around you is in need of gentleness. Many people use a “tough-love” approach in life, but this isn’t beneficial for everyone, especially those who are of a more sensitive disposition. Gentleness is the key here. Think of the wind blowing softly through the trees, it’s powerful enough to move the leaves, demonstrating that there’s some strength in gentleness.
Sometimes we feel we need to be tough to navigate certain situations in life. Yet, with gentleness comes flexibility and this means we bend but don’t break. This alone is worth pondering.
Is there a person who needs to treat you more gently? If so, speak your truth from your heart with kindness and clearly tell them how their hard approach makes you feel and that a more gentle attitude would reap greater rewards for everyone.
