Power of Desire: Self-care

Devil logo 052316 On Aug 9, I’m hosting a teleclass called “Devil May Care”, using the tarot archetype of the Devil to help you connect to your power of desire. One way to connect to your power of desire is with self-care.

In western culture, desire is often perceived as a double-edged sword. You’re damned if you do (greedy, hedonistic, selfish, shame) and you’re damned if you don’t (puritanical, no fun, joyless, scarcity complex).

How can we meet our desires in a healthy way?

Sometimes, our desires hint at a deeper need. By making sure your needs are met, you take good care of yourself. Ask what do I need, how much do I need, and how can I get it in a healthy way. Sometimes you need a piece of chocolate or comfort sex. Sometimes you need a nap or a mental health day. You don’t need to feel guilt or shame when you meet your own needs. You can take good care of yourself. You can choose your desires mindfully to be sure your needs are being met.
