Dream Spread

Okay, that title is perhaps a little deceptive: this isn't a spread for looking at dreams, necessarily, it's a spread I dreamt about.  It's one I've used before, but last night I had a dream in which I was doing lots of face-to-face readings, and this was the spread I was using.  So, when I woke up, I decided I'd give it a whirl to see what message my dream was telling me I need to hear.  The spread is simply a double line of five, drawn from the Mystical Lenormand (Königsfurt-Urania, 2004).

Angel,             Tree,           Mountain,       Spirit Guides,       House.
Scythe,           Rider,              Sun,                  Coffin,                 Dog.   
What I see here is that at the heart of the reading there is an energetic blockage (Mountain/Sun) that is an obstacle to happiness (Mountain/Sun).  The Angels' message is that they want to guide me to a harvest of health (Angel/Scythe, Tree).  However, it will require cutting the energy I put into cardio exercise (Scythe, Rider, Sun).  The health of my joints (Tree/Rider) is blocked and causing my unhappiness (Mountain/Sun).  This is true, as for the last day or two my knees have been hurting, and my back has been sore for two weeks now (Rider - joints, Tree - spine).

This is probably due in part to the fact that recently I've been doing a lot more cardio exercise again, particularly step and high intensity interval training.  I stopped doing step over a decade ago because of chronic shinsplints.  However, recently I thought that if I kept it low impact, I could perhaps go back to this old love of mine.  Which would probably be fine, except that because I enjoy it so much I have been doing 5 or 6 days a week of this high intensity exercise.  Before this, I had cut high intensity cardio down to no impact (stationary bike) and three times a week.  The blockage, then, is my desire to do these tough workouts (and so many of them) when my body just isn't up to it anymore.

An end to this energetic obstacle to health is in sight though (Tree, Mountain/Sun, Coffin).  An energetic transformation (Sun, Coffin) is possible if I learn from the past (Spirit Guides) and befriend my whole body (House/Dog) again.  This says to me that I need to cut back on these workouts as I did before.  Still, I don't want to give up exercise.  So, what else can the cards suggest?  They say that I should be faithful to the spirit of a deceased family member (Spirit Guides/Coffin, House/Dog).  Letting this percolate in my mind, I was reminded of a great aunt.  She was a ballerina, and though she suffered from arthritis she was still able to perform a ballet recital on her 80th birthday!  While her hands were arthritic lumps, her lower body had maintained its mobility through her regular practice.

More ballet it is, then :)  And while I'm at it, I shall keep typing, too, which is good exercise for the fingers.  I don't want to end up being a solid, mountain-like lump when I'm older!
