If I counted back, I could probably figure out when I began watching food programs on TV. But it’s not necessary to have the date, my memory of what I’ve seen will suffice.
Because it ties in to what I was shown this morning. Since I did start tuning in to cooking shows a few years back, that was the symbology which appeared.
Combine and set aside.
In meal preparation, this is the process of putting specific items together. Mixing ingredients, to create our desired result. Layering flavors to reach (hopefully) a full-bodied and enriching dish that will nourish.
In our recent conversations about “goals” and intentions, this procedure also applies. Take a suggestion from one place, an idea from another. Fold gently in with what we already have on hand (and in our hearts).
Finally, when it’s all in one place, apply a little Quality Control. Like tasting our sauce. We need to examine this new creation. Test it to see if it really is what we’re after.
If it needs something still, toss that in. If it suits, as is, then stop. Let it rest. Release. And have faith. What we’ve learned has been applied. Now, walk away. We never want to try TOO hard.
As we turn to the card altar now, within our regular rotation, we’re being handed a validation on a platter, or, the tides have brought it along with them.
“You’re Being Helped ~
‘Heaven is working behind the scenes to help you, even if you don’t see results yet.’
Your manifestation is being worked out right now, even if you can’t see the tangible proof. As an analogy, when sailors get close to land, they often see signs of life, such as birds flying or branches floating in the ocean. By drawing this card, you are urged to notice signs that ‘land’ (your manifestation) is near.
Even if you can’t see evidence that your manifestation is in process, this card assures you that your prayers have been heard and answered. Stay centered in faith and gratitude in order to open the door to your desires.”
Magical Mermaids and Dolphin Oracle Cards by Doreen Virtue
is a book recommendation and a quote. You all know how I love Diana Gabaldon‘s (flawed but engaging) series? Well, I’ve found another. Very similar and very well done. Less harsh than GB’s but just as good.
When a character has passed on (and a few do, so be alerted to that) they say s/he has gone to their homecoming gladly. It’s a beautiful phrase, and so true.
The books (more than 6, so far!) are called The Wilderness Series, written by Sara Donati (who is known in her Real Life as: Rosina Lippi).
