The Meaning of Nauthiz
Nauthiz can be a sign the Seeker has lost some of their sense of self and part of their individuality. Perhaps they have let go of something they later regret. There has been a lesson in awareness when it comes to what is the most important thing. The Seeker could need more space in their lives to think and figure out what they actually believe about things on a deeper level. They could also be at a crossroads. One path leads to the nurturing of the I, the Ego. The other path leads to a new day where the Seeker understands themselves on a deep spiritual level.
