Midnight Prince

Drawing this card from the Wild Wisdom of the Faery Oracle (Blue Angel, 2009) I meditated on it.  I found the phrase on the card affected my path working a lot.  The Prince asked me to tell him a true story, which was quite painful to do.  Yet, as my tears flowed, I was also grateful for the chance to explore what feels true to me.

One thing this meditation reinforced is the power of telling the truth, no matter how harsh.  Obviously, this is easier to do if the person you are telling a harsh truth about is yourself, and if you don't feel judged in the telling.  A counsellor is good, but a Midnight Prince seems to do the job just as well :)

It helped answer a question I had, which I had pushed to the back of my mind.  A querent from a free-reading had asked to share some personal details in return for my "take" on the situation.  I was hesitant, mainly because I don't feel qualified to give my opinion.  I can say what I see in the cards, but really the one who knows what is best for them is the person asking the question.

Still, this meditation reminded me of the power of being able to tell our story.  So, I replied to my querent saying please go ahead.  I release the need to find an "answer" for them, but hope that telling the story will help...

As for me, the truth that helped me today was to acknowledge that I don't believe my son could be anywhere better.  Even when I feel guilty for wanting another child, I know that he is truly loved and cared for at home with us.  We want another child as well, not instead.  And as I said in another post, I also realise that I do all I can for him, as does my husband.  Wanting another child does not change that, nor will it.
