I find that when the universe doesn’t like my response to a message (see deer/spirit guide story) it likes to nudge me along. So when I stalled on my promise to myself to take action and be kinder to myself, the universe sent reinforcements:
Yes, a spirit guide party, right in my very own backyard.
Message received. Honestly, I’m afraid NOT to take some action because there could be 20 the next time I look.
