Uncover hidden tea leaf meanings
A Mummy is a dead body of either an animal or a human being which has its internal intestines removed and then preserved.
As a symbol, it represents someone who is involved in deep traditions, either spiritually or culturally. This can indicate traditions that are holding you back in either career or relationships. It is a representation of an old way of doing things, meaning that you may need to become more hip to trends. Adaptation is necessary.
Detailed meaning of the mummy tea leaf symbol
Top of teacup: if the mummy is on top of the teacup, it means that the relationships with those closest to you are being affected by your old time views or traditional and conservative leanings. You are likely pushing people away from you, even if that is not your intention. It is time you realized that though traditions are important, adaptation is the key to survival. Your perspective on the world is too narrow. Try doing things differently, traveling or experiencing things that are new to you in order to understand other people’s way of thinking as well. You don’t have to agree, but you do need to learn to be respectful or risk losing important relationships as you lose touch with someone you love.
Middle of cup: a mummy in the middle of the teacup is an indication that though you base your thoughts in modern time thinking, there is a part of you which is still very traditional. Clinging to customs is close to destroying relationships around you. If you are in a fight with someone, consider how it is your fault or how you are contributing. Consider their way of thinking and try to spend time in their shoes. If you cannot conceive of their feelings, reach beyond yourself and ask them for help with understanding without judgment.
Bottom of teacup: a mummy at the bottom of the teacup is an indication that you are a modern or forward thinking person. You have an open lens of the world and can see possibilities, challenges and tasks from a variety of perspectives.
Your mind and heart is open. Cultural barriers are seen as new opportunities to learn and grow. Your presence makes people feel welcome and it is easy for you to make friends.
Scattered in the cup: scattered mummies in your teacup denotes that you are one person who mixes traditions and modern culture anyhow without planning where to use to traditional culture and where to refrain from using it.
This can be considered a cultural appropriation or cultural appreciation, depending on how you approach the world. If it is a business deal, it might just go sour because of your traditional way of presenting things. It is important to learn when to be cultural and when to follow modern practices in order to progress in life.
Conclusion: culture is very important in our lives, but at times, it can hinder us from progressing.
Make sure that this doesn’t happen to you because when culture becomes a stumbling block to your progression, then it is better to discard it.
