Brimming With Emotion

Mystical Lenormand
Yesterday morning, I figured out my technological issues, and was able to get back on Deva Premal and Miten's 21 Day Mantra Meditation Journey.  I decided to go back to day 4, having done days 1-3 plus day 7 (admittedly by myself).  The mantra for day 4 was Aham Prema - I am love!

The chanting was beautiful (Deva's as opposed to mine, but I enjoyed my part of it).  And focusing on my heart chakra, and on the feeling of love, what came to my mind was the Heart card in Lenormand.  Not the one I show here, though!  Despite using the Mystical Lenormand (K√∂nigsfurt-Urania, 2004) regularly, what I saw wasn't a heart alight with passion.

Perhaps because of my years reading tarot, when I think of love, compassion, tenderness and romance, I think more of water than of fire.  I saw a heart on a beach, with the ocean stretching far and wide beyond it.  This fitted well with the mantra: we are all a part of the ocean of love.  Yet, for most of our lives we draw out of that ocean, separating ourselves.

In some ways, I think that's necessary: we have to come out onto the beach, to get grounded and separate as part of our incarnation as a human being.  We need to express love in our everyday lives, to practice and experience it at a physical and mundane level, with our friends and family.  And in other ways, oh, the joy to dive back into that ocean and feel ourselves buoyed by the unity of life, riding the swell of absolute love.  Flowing with a mantra affirming not just love, but my part in it, that's what I felt!
