“Chaos and Conflict” from Colette Baron Reid’s “Wisdom of the Oracle” Divination Cards
Before things can be smooth sailing, sometimes they have to get a little messy. There may be someone or something that you feel you are up against and the key to handling this is not to fight or flight, but to take shelter. Trying hard to prove your point to another who is not on the same page as you and refuses to see your side of things will only create more chaos and conflict. The same goes for them as they may be trying to get you to see their point of view in which you may be unwilling. You have your side, and they have theirs. This could be pertaining to any relationship, whether romantic or not. Adding fuel to the fire is not recommended and it’s better for you to sit this battle out. Try and understand what the other person’s reasoning/thoughts/dilemma is. It doesn’t mean you need to agree but it’ll make it less stressful for you to deal with, and help you move on from it quicker. Take the focus off of the chaos itself and bring it into yourself. Recognize that no matter what the outcome of this is, you are growing from it and learning new lessons. Can it be negotiated? If not, then agree to disagree and move on!
This conflict and chaos can also signify chaos within yourself and your thoughts. You’ve heard the expression “what you think you attract”, and understand the law of attraction… so why are you creating stress in your mind that isn’t even real?! I know it’s easier said then done, but if you’re making things seem more chaotic then they actually are and exaggerating them, then that is what you’ll get. Keep your mind focused on the good that is happening around you, or the people in your life that make you laugh. Take a walk outside to clear your head and connect with nature and get yourself back to center. Things may seem chaotic to you on the outside right now, but they really aren’t. All is well!
If things have changed or are changing drastically in your life – something is/was taken away from you, you’ve lost something, ending a relationship, etc. – understand that things have shaken you to awaken you. Yes, this is difficult and right now things are chaotic and messy, but after every storm comes a rainbow. It is not a forever thing and you will come out of this just fine. Let the dust settle, take shelter and let the storm pass.
