Opening My Heart

Following on from yesterday's post, I decided to draw a line of five from the Mystical Lenormand (Königsfurt-Urania, 2004).  To do so, I shuffled the cards well, and then looked for the Heart card, and took it and the two cards to either side to show me what I need to know about love in my life.

Clover, Moon, Heart, Mountain, Spirit Guides (one of the four extra cards).  At a basic level, I saw this saying that my heart is quite open at a mundane level: my everyday emotions are fairly happy (Clover + Moon).  However, there is a block at the heart level between myself and spirit (Mountain + Spirit Guides).

Romance Angels
What might help me remove this obstacle between myself and spirit?  Doreen Virtue's Romance Angels seemed a good oracle deck to use for this question.  Although it can be used for regular romance readings, I think it also works quite well for questions about divine love.  I drew: It is Safe for You to Love.  Interestingly, this is one of only three cards in the entire deck with the word "heart" on it!  I read this as saying that my heart is closed because I don't feel safe, because of all my fears.

After drawing these cards, I once again took part in Deva Premal and Miten's 21 Day Mantra Meditation Journey.  Going to day 6, the mantra was Om asatoma satgamaya, Tamasoma jyotirgamaya, Mrityorma amritamgamaya.  They explained that gamaya means "lead us" and so the mantra translates roughly as: Lead us from illusion to reality, Lead us from darkness to light, Lead us from death to eternal life.  I found this mantra really poignant with these cards - it is asking to be lead beyond our fears.  Chanting this will hopefully open me more to my spirit guides, those who can lead me to divine love.

To help release my fears even more, tomorrow I plan to do a beautiful ritual created by Carla over at Rowan Tarot.  She created this based on the Dreamer Princess card from the Tarot of the Sidhe - wonderful idea!
