After a wonderful and finally warm weekend, most of which I spent in the garden, I return to the other world that I inhabit. I’m distracted by plans for a new outdoor meditation spot. The other part of my brain tells me to do the things on my list. I don’t feel like it. So I do other things, stalling to keep the weekend in this new work week day. With that going on, I smudged with sage, centered and shuffled the cards. I blew cigar smoke over the cards and asked for the message I am to share. I felt Graciella, la Gitana, my spirit guide’s, energy strong and grounding. Together we pulled La Romantica card.
Image: The image is of a young woman leaving a well-lit mansion. Her hair is ruffled by the wind. Her wrap has been hastily donned over an evening dress. Her eyes glitter as do the wall of windows behind her. There is also a low lying bank of shrubbery behind her.
Words: Slight wistfulness of hope. No promises are made. Day moves ahead without prescription. There is knowledge that the universes are in rhythm. Patterns flow. Feeling. Tingling. Rushing through when the timing is right. The challenge is to allow the movement channel though and not attempt to do the moving.
Read: It’s so much fun it is to get a direct response to the feelings and thoughts I have today. The message that I can wholeheartedly share is to allow yourself to be just as you are. Too often we compare ourselves to whatever we think others are doing and, therefore, what we should be doing. ‘Shoulds’ can be dangerous flights of fancy that are inappropriate for ourselves at any given time. We don’t really know what ‘others’ experience. We aren’t in their bodies or minds. We create a world by observing the external experience. It’s all about the insides. Today I feel a bit slow, distracted and, I daresay, romantic. It is what it is. Let it be. All too soon I will be back on the track of what I think I ‘should’ be doing. Allow myself and allow yourself to be. Luxuriate in it.
