How often do you scrub and tidy under your large appliances? Like once a month? Only in the Spring? Ever? Because we all know that I’m not big on the housework thing. My dad told me today though, that he know’s a woman who pulls out her stove and fridge (and maybe even the dishwasher) to clean under and behind them, at least once a year.
Here’s why we were discussing this questionable (and to me, distasteful) topic (while I had the vacuum cleaner wand in my hot little hand). If you’re squeamish about grunge and grime, prepare yourselves, it’s a bit unsettling.
When you yank a built-in electric range out of where it has lived for over 30 years, you get THAT! The hole (without the wire) is where duct-work was attached. We sealed it, and now have no kitchen fan. Oh well, the sliding glass door (about a foot away) will suffice.
Yeah, that was down there. It corresponds to the Five of Pentacles, a fascinating draw when using the Tarot. Messages of healing and appreciation; signs of self-sufficiency and sanctuary; omens of goodwill and standing on our own two feet; the energy of never feeling sorry for ourselves but simply being grateful. Thanks, Universe!
Several hours later, it looked much better. And when I went to let the kids know, I took a phone photo, basically saying the same thing, except with one important addition.
Another funny thing, the color of this range is called “bisque” a word I absolutely adore. (Big fan of the beige shade too.) When we got it in, I realized it matched my refrigerator. Not that I give a shit about such ridiculousness, but how funny that it DOES match!
We had barely enough time for the deputy to grab a quick snack before pool class. It’s been a VERY full day!
On our card altar this afternoon we have such a lovely stone to gaze upon. Plus a helpful suggestion to go with it.
“Stichtite In Serpentine ~
meditation, clearing your energy centres, detoxifying your thoughts
Fear and negative thoughts are preventing you from experiencing peace and joy and in your life. They are blocking your creativity and as a consequence, your life seems dull and dreary.
You can change this situation by consciously choosing to love and trust the universe instead of fearing it. Sit quietly in meditation and invoke the healing power of love, imagining yourself bathed in beautiful healing energies. Visualise all the colours of the rainbow swirling within and around you. Feel these beautiful healing colours flowing through your mind and heart and imagine your thoughts being infused with eternal light.
Practice this each day as it will help transform your negative and fearful thoughts to positive inspirations.
There is nothing to fear, you are eternally surrounded by love.”
Even if, at first, you don’t think this sounds like your situation, don’t disregard the message. Because at some point, some time, all of us ARE going to be dealing with negative energy, influence, or attitudes. So, it’s a good idea to take time out and try this rainbow mediation. If we get to know it, then, when that day arrives, we will effortlessly be able to utilize this metaphysical tool.
