Sunday evening rolls around just as quickly as Monday morning. It’s a time that I usually start fretting about what I did or didn’t do. I look around me and see so many things that I haven’t had the chance to get to and then I start wishing for the next weekend. When I do this my opportunities to enjoy discoveries are reduced. I’m in next Friday. Wait, it’s Sunday. What might help is looking down at my feet and seeing where I’m planted.
I just spent the afternoon with a circle of women who embody grace, love, and all the gifts that a compassionate Mother could provide. These are women who are spiritual, creative, loving, and talented and are not afraid to share their gifts with the world. I’m in awe that the Mother Goddess saw to it that we would each take a little time from our extremely busy and full lives to share the gifts of healing and spirit with each other. Wow.
So now, I sit to pull the oracle concept card that Graciella la Gitana wants to share with us. We meld our energies and shuffle the cards. We fan them out on the table and we ground and center with our breath. Together we pull the Treachery/Traición card. Didn’t we just pull that card recently for the weekly reading?
This is a simple message of awareness. We must take care of not being obstructed by our self-wills that may prohibit us from experiencing exactly what our higher self believes would benefit us. How many times do we say, I know! when someone suggests something to us? Have we put our hands up to ward off advice either in work or in play because we just don’t want to take in new information? This week I plan to meet with a new collaborator in my work setting. Do I say, I’ve been doing this without your help for so long that what could you possibly offer me now? If I accept the fresh perspective of another who might be holding a crystal of light as the woman in the image is I may learn something. How do I step away from my ego and allow another to teach me something new or different. Otherwise I may be like the gentleman who hangs from a tree by his suit jacket. Do I turn into a buffoon because I cannot be open and my will binds my way?
Today I pray that I can be open to the newness that my higher self would always have me experience. I’ll leave my jaded, know-it-all attitude at home. I’ll say thank you!
I like to joke and sing about today being the first day of the rest of my life. My inner consciousness truly believes that. I don’t leave my knowledge and experience behind. I take them with me and mix it with the suggestions of another and come up with a totally new recipe. I think I will like it. I hope you do too.
In light and love,
Theresa and Graciella
