Daddy (#5)

I am the one who... longs to rest in safety and be released from hypervigilance.  I will give away pieces of myself for the illusion of security.

Core meaning: Longing to be safe and protected

This is the first card that made me cry when I finished it.  It speaks to the relationship I never had with my father or God - and a longing for a feeling of safety.  The eyes speak to my vigilance toward and distrust of what the future holds.  The tigers are me - my inner longing and my inner anxieties.

Attend me, hold me in your muscular flowering arms, protect me from throwing any part of myself away. ~ Audre Lorde
