Tarot of the Day: Two of Swords: 04/30/2015

Today is the last day of April.  Tomorrow is May.  Beltaine or Beltane depending on your pov.

This morning was a grounding meditation.

Today’s affirmation is:  I am an Awesome Aunt, I am an Awesome Sister, and I am an Awesome Daughter.

Today’s Tarot Draw was:

Dilemma, Opposition, Procrastination: Two views, Two Feelings, or two people are in opposition, and you are trying to create a reconciliation, peace or harmony between them. You may well achieve peace temporarily, but it is likely to be an uneasy one, meanwhile the storm clouds of repressed feelings and unresolved issues are gathering. In the end, the clouds will break and the tension will be relieved as the conflict is finally resolved.

Personally I’m looking at this card, and I see dilemma. There are an abundance of choices, but only one that needs to be done. Am I procrastinating? Maybe. So far as soon as there is something, I cut it and let it loose. I need stuff, I need this or that. But I’m staying the course, to complete a goal that needs to be accomplished. Does my resolve waver, on occasion, yes. But I bring it back to what needs to be done. Are there other things I’ve been dragging my feet on. Yep. Which makes me think I should actually accomplish some of it this evening. It’s entirely plausible.

Wonderfully Grounding and Naturally Grateful: 04/29/2015

Today is my trade day. Instead of doing the traditional trade we went to the Minnesota Arboretum, and got around nature. Some of the tulips and daffodils are blooming. Most of the flowers that are close to the ground are blooming. The crab apples not so much, but the Magnolias, they’re blooming.

So I had a brief wonderfully grounding trip to the Minnesota Landscape Arboretum. Took an abundance of pictures, that I haven’t gone through yet. Walked around a bit, drove on the 3 mile, got to see the burnt prairie (they do a controlled burn). It was an awesome trip.

What am I grateful for today?

  1. My nap (I got to have one today, it was warm)
  2. My cat (crazy little bit she is)
  3. Car2Go
  4. My clients (one of them is going to Italy for a month, another is recommending me to her chiropractor)
  5. The Minnesota Landscape Arboretum
  6. Camera
  7. Good Friends
  8. My Roommate
  9. Good Food
  10. Ikea

So I hope everyone has a good night, safe Thursday.  Tomorrow’s posts will most likely be combined, as I’m babysitting tomorrow morning.

I’ll leave you with another picture.

Tarot of the Day: King of Wands and Four of Wands: 04/29/2015

Can you believe that it’s almost May?  Almost here, it’s almost here?

Where does the time fly,

Out the window it flies.

Flies away while no one is looking.

Today’s affirmation is I am a Sain Healer and Sain Healing.

Resolute, Enquiring, Optimistic; …can also indicate that you need to express your ideas, make important decisions, set goals, or seek guiding vision.

The King of Wands says a great deal more, but in regards with today, this is the part I believe it is referring to. My roommate brought my resume in, and I did get a call. All I have to do is pick up the phone, call back, and set up an appointment for an interview.

Change is hard, but It’s getting better.  I have goals already in place.  During my meditation the message was stay true to the goals.

Druid Craft Tarot
Art by Will Worthington

Hearth and Home, Harvest, Celebration; …a sense of enjoying the harvest of your work…improving your home, launching a new project or completing a phase of work.

In regards with the day, and what I’m contemplating. Today is my Trade with Diane, instead of the traditional trade, we are going to the Arboretum. But I’m planning on going to Ikea today. I’m hoping to get a couple things, but I’m a little hesitant as it deviates from a goal.

Do I want to deviate a little, or do I practice some patience?

Making the first passive step is easy,  the active step is when things get interesting.

Tarot of Day, Many Gratefuls and a Wonderful Evening: 04/28/2015

How was everybody’s day? Did you spend it with some one special? Get something important out of the way? Go to work? Have dinner with friends/family? Do a little shopping?

This morning I had every intention of getting up and moving early, then I laid down for a meditation. Promptly went to sleep, and over slept the time I was to leave a bus somewhere. Oops! I need to watch my body temp when I meditate, because if I’m extremely warm and comfy, asleep is where I’ll be.

So I had some questions to ask, and I got some answers, but it all depends on how the cookie crumbles on the outcomes.

wpid-20150428_114009.jpg60 The Question
Heart of Faerie

Intention. Dialogue. Answers. If you draw the Question in a reading, try answer those questions for yourself. When you have answered, you can ask on of your own. What is that question, and of whom are you asking it? If you are clear about your question (in Faerie and in life) and what you seek, you will then be able to ask the right questions and be ready to hear the answers. Why are you here? Who am I? What is your quest? Why have you come here, and what do you seek? Are you a tourist, just looking around, hoping to send a postcard home? Are you on a quest, a journey of the spirit? Do you want knowledge? Experience of the otherworld? Are you looking for love? Are you searching for something that you have lost?

We are all asking questions. Whether they are simple questions or hard questions. I thought it very apt for this card to show up after my meditation/nap.

16 wpid-20150426_104923.jpg16 The Messenger
Heart of Faerie

Confusion, Mischief, Gossip: If he turns up in your reading, make sure you verify what people are telling you, especially about how some one else feels or about any aspect of your relationship. Gossip can be irresistible, but the hurt it causes is not so easily mended. Be aware of the messenger in your life and take what he tells you with more than a grain of salt.

So The Messenger has visited again this week. hmm…

Sometimes my filter, well hell, most of the time my filter doesn’t work, it’s not turned on, so I say things that should best left unsaid. Same is true in a massage like setting. So when my client says things I may not agree with, I keep my mouth shut. But people wonder on some things on our society, you may be amazed on some of the reasons things are the way they are, by listening to what people have to say, instead of doing the knee jerk reaction of “But?”

What Wonderful thing happened today?  My roommate and I went to see Fast and Furious 7.  If you are a fan, and you’ve been a little wary on seeing it, GO!  They did an awesome job.

What happened today that made me grateful?

  1. I got a little extra sleep. 😛
  2. My little kitten napped with me.
  3. My roommate (went to the movies with just me)
  4. Tramore (old man kitty)
  5. My clients
  6. My friends
  7. Metro Transit (get anywhere in the Twin Cities in 2.5 hours on 1.75 non peak hours)
  8. Camera option on the phone
  9. Unusual Children having fun at the theater.
  10. Aldi

Here are some Kitten Pictures from this morning.  I hope everyone has a safe and fun evening!

Wonderfully Beautiful and Much needed Gratefuls: 04/27/2015

So today is Monday?  How was everybody’s first work day (well the traditional work week)?  Was it good?  Did you have an awesome time doing what you do?  Where did you go?

What was Wonderful?  hmmm… I would have to say getting up about 8am, and ready for my first client of the day.  Then accomplishing two other things before noon.  It was an awesome feeling.

What am I grateful for today?

  1. My roommate (asked from my resume, and is going to turn it in to her work.)
  2. My clients (awesome people they are)
  3. Work
  4. My career
  5. Car2Go
  6. Nature in of itself
  7. Setting up a movie date for tomorrow (F7)
  8. Awesome food (some leftovers)
  9. My Theracane (look it up)
  10. My kitties

My sister went the Minnesota Zoo today, posted a couple pictures of my little nephew.  One of him looking at back hoes.  He really likes them.  And the other of him dead to the World buckled in the back seat.

Tarot of the Day: Experiencing: 04/27/2015

wpid-20150423_075727.jpgThree of Fire: Experiencing
Osho Zen Tarot

An “experience’ is something that can be filed away in a notebook, or captured on film and pasted into an album. “Experiencing” is the feeling of wonder itself, the thrill of communion, the gentle touch of our connectedness with all that surrounds us. The woman in this card is not just touching this tree, she is in communion with it, she has almost become one with it. It is an old tree, and has seen many hard times. her touch is gentle, reverent, and the white on the inside of her cape reflects the purity of her heart. She is humble, simple – and that is the right way to approach nature. Nature doesn’t bang any drums when it burst forth into flower, nor play any dirges when the trees let go of their leaves in the fall. but when we approach her in the right spirit, she has many secrets to share. If you haven’t heard nature whispering to you lately, now is a good time to give her the opportunity.

I think I really enjoy the waking up in the Morning, like before 9am. I may still need to program the alarm about 2 hours before I’m supposed to be officially moving, but I feel that I’ve accomplished some things this morning that I would not have if I hadn’t gotten up this morning.

I believe I’ll walk to work today.

Today’s Affirmation is I am Successful and Accomplished.

Wonderful thoughts and Grateful Companionship: 04/26/2015

Today was an awesome day!  I spent some time with my roommate and her boyfriend, we went out and did some grocery shopping, and had a semi productive blah day.  I saw some pictures from my sister about her day out with BlueBerry.

I had some Wonderful thoughts today, from cuddles, I want cuddles, to watching the pictures my Sister was uploading about her day, to Sunshine, sleeping on a Sunday Morning.  So it was just a Wonderful Day!  Wonderful Wonderful Day.

Did I say it was Wonderful?  No…well it was Wonderful.

There’s a couple things I’ve been thinking about with my practice.  I already have one special in the works which was a 3 massage pack for $150 ($50/each), 2 packs max.  For the month of May.  But then I realized that it’s also Memorial Day this month.  I want to do something for those who serve and their families.  Though I’m unsure what I could offer them outside of the 20% I already offer.  Thinking…

What happened that I’m grateful for today?

  1. There’s a picture from my sister with my little nephew walking up a path at a preserve silhouetted in the sun.
  2. Sleeping in on Sunday Morning.
  3. Listening to my roommate talk to herself while she’s RPGing online. *She’s so pretty*
  4. Watching the cat’s be cats.  We had another casualty today (broken glass cup some one left out)
  5. Spraying said cats for unacceptable behavior (you have no idea the pleasure I feel when I have to do that)
  6. Preparing a meal with my Roommate.
  7. Watching my cat doing the “oh…right there”, with Tramore today.
  8. Having a well behaved roommate’s boyfriend around (he did dishes twice) 🙂
  9. Aldi is your friend
  10. Setting up a massage appointment for some one tomorrow.

So here are some photographs from today:

wpid-img_20150426_201056.jpg wpid-img_20150426_151219.jpg

The meal was pasta w/ Alfredo sauce cupcakes topped with meatballs and sauce, followed by some Salad and toast.  Dessert was pound cake.

The next picture is Mischief and Tramore.

This car made a visit today.  It’s called the Smaug Mobile.

So an awesome day had by all.  Toodles!
