Recovery might be something you’re afraid of though. Sometimes we get so used to being hurt and depressed that we get comfortable in our own destruction. But the Four of Cups is a reminder that we can rise above our pain and adversity and reach new heights. It’s a reminder that we are better than our circumstances and that there are people that care for us.
If you’re still feeling sad and lonely today it’s a good idea to call up a family member or a friend who you trust. They’ll be able to support you through the recovery phase that’s about to start. This time is all about having the people you trust and love around you. So, make sure you have the support you need to make this a smooth and safe rebuilding phase of your life.
Until today things haven’t been going so well for you. You’ve been a bit self-destructive and that’s led to a lot of regrets and broken promises. You’re in over your head and things are falling apart around you. That’s why it’s time to call on a friend or family member to help you recover and rebuild your life. If you can’t phone a friend you may need to get in touch with a professional to help you on your recovery journey. There’s no shame in asking for help while you rebuild your life.
In fact, you’re going to need all the help you can get to fully recover. Things aren’t all sunshine and roses for you right now. But luckily the Four of Cups is all about restructuring and getting back on track. It’s not going to happen overnight though. It’s going to take weeks or even months to get to where you want to be. But the four energy of this cup card will help you start to build a more solid foundation.
It’s time to rebuild your life and master the lesson that caused you to fall into a deep dark pit of hopelessness. Things don’t have to stay this way. But you have to be willing to put your pride in your pocket and ask for help. It’s not easy to do, but it’s the only thing that will give you some perspective right now. The more you can see your problem from someone else’s point of view the easier it will be to figure out what you need to do to get through it.
You can get through this rock bottom. You can rise to the top again. But your recovery is going to take some effort. You’re going to have to put in the hours to get to the bottom of the issue. There’s something that caused you to hit rock bottom in the first place. And if you can figure out what that is you’ll be able to figure out how to not let it happen again.
But that’s just half the battle. To recover completely you need to rebuild your life in a way that doesn’t include that problem. You’re going to have to figure out how to live your life differently. In other words, you’re going to have to rethink how you do everything. Because if you fall back into the same patterns as before you’re just going to end up in the same place you are now.
So, there’s a lot of hard work ahead, but the Four of Cups is letting you know that it is possible to rebuild and recover. It is possible to climb back up to a good life. In fact, it’s possible to climb even higher than you ever thought possible. So it’s time to get up and get started on your own recovery - whatever that means to you.
