Card 5 - Standing people
The standing people card speaks to us of roots and giving. We must nurture ourselves through connection to earth in order to give freely without exhaustion. The root of the self is where strength is gathered. This root should be firmly earthed in the soil of our Mother planet. without this connection, dreams cannot manifest and our giving cannot be compensated by the earth mother. if you are spaced out, stop and reconnect.
Be still in order to observe the trees and see what is growing in your forest. The root of every answer for physical life is found in the earth. Look to your family tree for the strength offered by the ancestors. Lift your branches high seeking the light of the grandfather sun and you will see how your roots make you of the earth and yet a bridge to the sky world.
The standing people are asking you to give of yourself. Ask yourself if you are willing to give and receive. Count the root of every blessing with gratitude. Find any blockage that may limit your root system or ability to go deeper. Then remove the feeling and go deeper once again for the answers you may seek. Remember we are also the root of the future and through our lives, future generations are nurtured. Weed out anything that will inhibit future growth and stand proud among your tree relations.
