Moodscope 17: Playing The “Nervous” Card

17 Moodscope Card - Nervous

Here is my 17th blog on the 20 Moodscope cards.

Today, it’s the turn of the “Nervous” Card which Moodscope defines as, “feeling worried that something unpleasant will happen.”

Whichever way you play this card, we are talking about energy here, nervous energy.  Being a blue card, Moodscope is suggesting this is an unresourceful state of mind, so we need some alchemy to turn the base energy into pure gold.  Whilst this may be impossible for the alchemists of history, it is fully possible for the alchemist of your imagination, will and intention.

Perhaps the key here is in the “will happen” – what I call the “future uncertain” tense.  [When the future is uncertain, this certainly makes most people feel tense, or nervous!]  This simply and surely means that your energy is in the wrong place.  The only way to influence the future is to do something different in the present.  And that takes energy – nervous energy reframed, reinvented and refocused.

Energy needs to flow – and for most of us that means doing something physically.  So, what would make this day better?  This is familiar territory for regular readers of the Moodscope blog – e.g. spending time with friends who are energising in a good way;  doing art that inspires; listening to music that uplifts; being kind to others.  And it is that last one I’d recommend concentrating on today.  Nervous energy can really be channelled to help others.  You may have a friend who’s been putting off tidying up their garage/cupboards/spare bedroom – there’s always something they’ve been putting off.

Get together and make it an adventure in productive fun.  You’ll soon find your nervous energy better spent.

[Footnote: I’m a real loner.  So sometimes I prefer the company of the cat.  Ridiculous though it sounds, tidying up while chatting to the cat seems to work just as well for me… no back-chat or challenging converstation from the cat!!!  So, to act on today’s suggestion, you don’t even need to go and find-a-friend.  I’m sure you’ve got areas in your own life that would benefit from a tidy-up.]
