Last night I tried to "observe" what was rolling around in my mind while trying to do my oracle cards. Previously (when taking pine/willow together) I've been able to clear my mind, quiet it and thoughts float through. They do not stay.
Right now ricochet feels like a better word to describe the flurry of thoughts and how quickly the bounce around and almost echo in my mind. Mostly the thoughts were "to-do" or "remember this" and some were reliving a moment (typically the moments are of anger or resentment) and/or I wish I said this or did this to mitigate the results.
I should say - yesterday I did a blend of walnut, willow & aspen and it felt comfy with what I had going on (lots of being interviewed & scruntized for our program at work - along with dealing with my boss who is going off the rails a bit in terms of craziness)
