Last month I practiced some retail therapy. I bought the Sacred Rebels Oracle Deck by Alana Fairchild. I’m really enjoying the deck as well as the meditations. It’s a bit different from her other Isis Oracle Deck, though I like them both. She has a couple other decks that I would love to adopt, but I’ll wait on that.
Beginning with Sunday last week, I started drawing a card a day. Seeing what came up.
Sunday’s Card was Bring It Into Focus which is about bringing your dreams and possibilities into reality. Which there have been a lot of thoughts, brainstorming, and ideas going about. Especially dealing with my Healing practice, and what direction I want to head with it. Also dealing with my home, and what direction I want to head with that. Sunday I got off my ass, and re-did the curtains in the front room, so that they are on 2 rods, and the thermals are close to the window. I’m very proud of my work there. It allows me to have my sheer curtains to remain closed, and just open the thermals, thus I still have light coming into my home. And it’s warm. Though I’m contemplating putting the plastic weather film on it for the winter. Next week is supposed to have single negative digits. BRRR!
Monday’s Card was Focus on the Light which speaks about the light that is attracted to your intent to act out of love towards your life purpose It talks about the importance of staying true to form and intent to allow that dream or goal to come in to fruition. It also talks about being focused, and to try not to be too distracted by other paths. Stay true to yourself. Monday was a day I had the apartment to myself, which I love.
I got to cuddle with the cats, and enjoy the light of the day. Take joy in the the Light, and contemplate my plans. I know that I am a healer, and I’m trying not to be too distracted, but I get the feeling, that it’s time to MOVE. That it’s time for decisions to be MADE. That it is time to MAKE a choice or choices, and RUN with them.
Tuesday is the First day of my Work week. Tuesday’s Card draw was Visions of Life Beyond Death which speaks of an awakening with in me. Of being blessed with the ability to see what is real rather than what appears to be. She also speaks of my expanding truth, my ability to inspire and see that light in all things is unfolding. That I should nourish this in my heart with loving acceptance because I am going to help others through my vision, my art, and how I choose to see the World.
Looking at this card, I think Shaman. At one with the Divine. At one with the World around me. At one with myself. When I read through her messages, I find myself remembering past hurts or embarrassments. That it is time to let go. I find it important to note that when I was drawing this card, I was thinking of the Crone Goddess.
Wednesday is an odd day sometimes. Wednesday’s card was Release the Dark Wound and Let Love Live. For me this card speaks of just what it says. Remembering all the things that have occurred in my life…
Wednesday night, before I went to bed, I did a meditation. The meditation of release. While I did the meditation that is listed for this card, I also thought and Said I am Reiki. I am Love. I am Compassion. I am Safety. I am Protection. I am Divine. I am Holy. And several other affirmations mixed in with the healing affirmation. I said the healing affirmation more times than the instruction, but I felt release. I remember waking up on Thursday and feeling well rested and refreshed.
Thursday was a really odd day, but productive and enjoyable. Both My roommate and I got off early, went out for some lunch, and came home. We had a fun day. Thursday’s card was Receiving. This card echos a lot of what other teachers and healers have stated over the years, that we do not receive well. We are taught that we must care for others before we care for ourselves, and are even shamed or made to feel guilt for thinking that we need to care for ourselves before we care for others. But if we do not care for ourselves, can we provide the ideal care that others would need?
This week I made contact with a fellow massage therapist to do trade. So Next week I’m going to get a massage. Self care is important.
Friday. OMG! Friday was my first day off, and my first Friday off since I was in Virginia over the holiday in November. I enjoyed it. It’s also the day of accomplishments, and moving forward. Leo King 12/09/2016 reading pretty much put things into perspective. If you are interested he (Leo King) did another separate in-depth reading which you can find on YouTube. Earlier in the Week, I highlighted some changes that were going to be occurring in my business. Friday I finalized things. But there are other things in my practice that are coming into my thought and action process.
It’s been a bit slow lately. Which is a little odd for me, especially given the time of year. Whereas last year we were pretty busy, but the place where I am working has gone through a great deal of changes, and lost several members as a result of those changes. I get the feeling that some of what is going on, is meant to be some introspection, some considerations as changes and avenues are thought of. Sometimes we get to a point where it’s like OMG! What now? But having Faith in the Process is key to following through the choices that have been made.
Today. Today is an awesome day. Little helpers everywhere. Today’s card was Trust Yourself. Trust yourself is about Trusting Yourself, having Faith in the Process, that things are working out as they should, that you are working out as you should. That you are growing, flowing, letting go, and bursting forth into the Light of Day. Things are progressing as they should. Have Faith and Trust in Yourself.
I had a client tell me this today. That things will fall where they should and the Universe has my back. It’s kinda funny, because that’s what I told her last week.
So this was my week in cards. What encouragement and healing will occur next week? Hopefully some of what came up this week, helps you be who and what you are.
In Love and Reiki,
