As is the way in pulling a card from the Graciella la Gitana Oracle © I made sure the white candle was lit, it’s flame burned brightly. I next smudged with sage and a feather fan. I even smudged the doggies who walked into my spiritual space to investigate the goings on. I centered and merged with Graciella’s spirit that most lovingly shuffled the oracle deck and together we pulled the Health/Salud card.
I must admit that I was surprised because we recently pulled that card for this weekly reading. But quickly, I received the message that should be shared tonight. Our world is a very sick one. In light on the assassinations and attempted murders on the national front, we are all personally involved in pain, hate, resentment, and anger. What a lust for hurt! My own dismay at my feelings must be counteracted with love, compassion, forgiveness, and healing in whatever service or level that I may reach. We are all different and must accept what we and others are able to give as we move to condemn the rhetoric, the demands of the twisted, and those who seek to harm.
Our actions in healing and changing our world to a better one absolutely includes prayers. It includes us personally engaging in whatever activity we indulge in that may bring happiness and joy to ourselves and to others. Stress levels decrease when individuals cook with their children, while telling stories of our ancestors. It also decreases when one runs in a group, in a solitary manner, or sings, or plays an instrument that raises our vibrations.
This card depicts the male and female aspect communicating. The language is seen through the expressions, the fervor, the ability to yield to the love and the voice of another. We must listen to each other for understanding to take place in communication. We must also speak out to share our viewpoints. This speak comes in many forms. For some it is a whisper, for others it is a solid voice that doesn’t quiver in fear. Again, it is what we can manage in a healing way. Communicating our needs in our personal lives with our families is often not easy. It can also be challenging in the world outside of our walls. One of our most effective ways to communicate is to vote.
If we want our society to be a healthy one, with the masculine and feminine in balance, we must not hold our visions to ourselves. Look around you. Observe your world. What ways can we employ to make it healthy again?
Con much cariño,
