Today’s message felt, at first, more like a household tip than any sort of cosmic guidance.  But, what have we learned in doing this for all these years?

             That’s right.  Don’t argue with the Universe.


             As in, where we put shit matters.  Have you ever heard the “a place for everything and everything in its place” phrase?  It’s like that.  Only bigger.  And more all-encompassing.

             Also, the attitude is aimed at taking care of us, not us taking care of things.  Like, we’ll be more efficient, healthier even, when we are better organized.

             (All I can say to that is, my OCD thanks you.)

             We’ve been handed a nice way to start, too.  Here on our card altar, within the regular rotation, this suggestion will be a very helpful way to get going on our Placement.

“Tranquility  ~

‘Make time to relax, be still, and enjoy your solitude, indulge in much-needed self-care.’

This card asks you to take a break from your harried schedule.  Soaking or swimming in salty water creates a magical electrical energy shift in your body.  The salt draws out emotional and physical toxins.

Purchase sea salt from your local health-food store’s spice section, and pour lots of the salt and fragrant essential oils into your warm bathwater.  Be sure to immerse your chest and heart chakra under water as you soak in the tub in order to release toxic emotions.

Burn a white candle near your bathtub.  As you look at the flickering flame, think about what you want.  The white candlelight amplifies your thoughts and feelings, so think about your desires and not your fears.

Let the saltwater wash away any doubts that could block your manifestation.  Ask the candle to illuminate your mind with faith and positive expectations.  

Enjoy this relaxation time, and have faith that your prayers have been heard and are being answered.”
