Recently I have been thinking of (and seeing in my dreams/receiving visits from) a good friend who took his own life. The event was decades ago, but the emotional loss feels no less fresh for having been so many years gone by.
This morning, his image was again with me. But today, he’d come to say that he would be moving on. His next “task” was coming up soon. (We all have work or hobbies or services that occupy us on the Other Side, as much or as little as we like to do.)
The idea that my friend brought was also our message. It’s a concept that he had to go Home, in order to learn.
We are being reminded of the inherent importance we have. The priceless individuality that we offer simply by living and breathing and walking this journey.
As do all creatures. There is a method to this madness, even if WE don’t always see it. The Magick of Life is real. And we’re in the middle of it. Our very presence is part of the whole. And THAT makes a difference.
On our card altar, where we’re still within the regular rotation, this concept is being expanded upon. But, it’s doing so with a tweak. He didn’t appear completely Direct, which means we need to figure out why.
First of all, let’s glance back at yesterday, and see the similarities there. Between that card and this one, there’s a bit to notice. Like how they are both representing, in an iconic way, the male side of Creation.
As well as, the Spark of Life; as a glowing example of where we all began. Even though this view has more “toys” to show off, as compared to the last illustration.
And that’s the point. We ALL have those tools at our disposal. It’s what we do with them that counts. Or, in some cases, what we are NOT doing with them. As the sideways lean toward Contrary shows us.
We are, each and every one of us, a part of Life’s fabric. We are, each and every one of us, a valuable and pertinent piece of the puzzle. We are, each and every one of us, made up of the same basic components.
And yet, each and every one of us is unique and complete. Where we take our next steps or what we do with our skills is up to us. No matter what direction we go, as long as we go there in love and truth, we are going the correct way.

is this view from a few days ago.
As you know, I have two mental health professionals who I see, on alternating weeks. In the office of *K* there is a bulletin board (part metal, part cork). These were in the top corner the last time I was there.
The top pink one says:
“Happiness exists where I choose to look for it.”
The middle purple one says:
“I choose to see each obstacle as an opportunity to grow.”
And the bottom one in yellow says:
“I feel good and good is attracted to me.”
I’m going to put these on Post Its and stick them up, here at home. They are all excellent reminders and affirmations.
