Heartfelt and Taking Care.

             Have I said this before?  Seems like I have.  I’m very suggestible, as well as prone to distractibility.  Also, forgetful.  I “found” a stack of library books in the living room.  Our front parlor is not very messy, in comparison to other parts of The Burrow.  But obviously, it ain’t a damn show-place either.

             It’s not like I don’t remember reserving them or later picking them up.  I mean, I AM the one who put them in that bag and toted them home.  It might just be that my mind wanders off and doesn’t always come RIGHT back.

             Today’s channeled message is one that I could apply here.  Not like I am the type to lapse into name-calling, even directed at my own scattered wee self elf.  But still, it’s nicely gentle, in a kind and forgiving way:

compassion, loving and sharing with others

             The dream I woke up from, where it was featured (this is becoming a pattern, FYI), had nothing to do with mislaid stacks of reading materials.  But it did have to do with rooms.

             On our card altar, we’ve come back to the regular rotation.  And it felt like we needed two of these today.

“Going With The Flow  ~  Ace

Water:  Emotions

The figure in this card is completely relaxed and at ease in the water, letting it take him where it will.  He has mastered the art of being passive and receptive without being dull or sleepy.  He is just available to the currents of life, with never a thought of saying ‘I don’t like that’ or ‘I prefer to go the other way.’

Every moment in life we have a choice whether to enter life’s waters and float, or to try to swim upstream.  When this card appears in a reading it is an indication that you are able to float now, trusting that life will support you in your relaxation and take you exactly where it wants you to go.  Allow this feeling of trust and relaxation to grow more and more; everything is happening exactly as it should.

Laziness  ~  9

Water:  Emotions

This gentleman clearly thinks he’s got it made…..  He doesn’t have the energy to get up and do anything because he thinks he’s done it already.  He hasn’t yet turned to see the mirror cracking around him on his right, a sure sign that the place he thinks he’s finally arrived at is about to shatter and dissolve before his very eyes.

The message this card brings is that this poolside resort is not your final destination.  The journey isn’t over yet, as that white bird flying into the vastness of the sky is trying to show.  Your complacency might have arisen from a real sense of accomplishment, but now it’s time to move on.  No matter how fuzzy the slippers, how tasty the drink, there are skies upon skies still waiting to be explored.”

             (Didn’t we JUST mention something about Choices in Life?  Yeah, I thought so.)

             Taken together, this draw has the numerical sequence of 10, or 1.  Which, as you all know by now, signifies a new beginning.  Or, as we mentioned yesterday, a spiraling up into another cycle.

             Keeping them together, they also tell us about the fine line between relaxation and complacency.  When we’re on vacation we usually know when it’s ending because our reservations are only for a limited time and we need to come back to our “real lives” eventually.

             But how do we know when our EMOTIONAL time-off is finished, and our next phase needs to begin?  Well, in this case, the cards just told us.  It is suggested that we continue releasing and not fighting against the current, but the Universe is also giving us a reminder about taking care of the business at hand.

             In my case (focusing on the suit) it’s about feelings and concerns that threaten to overwhelm.  My path is so very spiritually oriented, the MENTAL and PHYSICAL tasks along my way can easily get scrambled and (see beginning paragraph) misplaced.

             When each slice is whole, it’s a spiral.  Something I couldn’t see while it was in the package.  So.  Yeah.  THAT!

  1. Wonderful channeled message today, something that we should ideally be living every day.

    Ace of Cups! Yay! But then I’m not real happy with what the developers of this deck’s messages did with the 9 of Cups… seems to me like they turned a “positive” message card into a somewhat “negative” one. Whatever. You do have a good point, though… I definitely feel like my “time off” from work, and immersed in emotional healing is (hopefully!!!) coming to an end… or, it should be.

    The bread is a beautiful spiral! Such an artistically arranged presentation, too! Makes me want some grapes, LOL!

    That gorgeous Supermoon was so happy-making! Just looking at it again makes me smile! But, oh, damn, it was cold out there… super freezing wind right outta Alaska… BRRRR!

    I know, the cold can be difficult, but still….

    (I agree with you, making a positive into a negative is yet another flaw this deck has.)

  2. Given that my card knowledge is pedestrian at best, I found that this draw was one of the more palatable ones from this deck; even though it still remains overwhelmingly male-centric.

    I did enjoy the picture of the moon, and have, on more than one occasion, discovered something I had no idea was lost…

    True, there are many issues with that deck, see comment above, but it still has more gifts to share, so we keep it around.


  3. I did not get out to see the moon because a) I forgot, and b) it was super cloudy anyway. So I’m glad we have Corina’s picture!

    Yeah, I need these cards, especially the “get off your butt and get moving” card. Working on that. One of my issues.

    Your meal looks beautiful. I’m not a big fan of rye bread, but that is pretty enough that I might eat it anyway! 🙂

    I am a HUGE fan of rye bread, however, this was barely rye bread. You would probably have liked it.
