Health Worries

It's funny, a bit of an irony.  Not having seen my son for 24 hours, I felt sad sending him golden light this morning while chanting to Dhanvantari, the healer.  I cried a little, less over his issues, and more from missing him.  Yet, when I'm with him, it so often feels hard: relentless, frustrating, distressing.  It's probably an attitude adjustment I need, rather than a break... 

Anyway, the chanting to Tara was more uplifting, and reminded me about my desire to paint a lotus.  I haven't yet made my first attempt with acrylics, which I think will be the best medium for it given my low skill level.  And I don't have that stuff with me this weekend.  Instead, I incorporated a small lotus bit into a zentangle I started on yesterday, and that was also quite enjoyable.

I drew three cards, shown here on an orange silk cushion, from the Mystical Lenormand (Königsfurt-Urania, 2004): Tree, Birds, Mountain.

I read this as my worries over my son's health need to stop.  They are a mountain for another day, they're not going away.  But spoiling my own health by worrying about his is not productive, especially when I have a little time away to rest and relax.  So, time to de-stress, do some yoga, and get a massage :)

  1. Yes. Enjoy your weekend, live in the moment, and don't let worry spoil it for you. The worrying doesn't help anyway. (Wise words from a master-worrier.)

    1. Yeah, knowing worrying doesn't help and not worrying - often different planets :) I did manage to relax more today, perhaps knowing I would see my son again soon... Hope you had a good weekend, too, Siddaleah :)

  2. Hug! I can understand why you would feel sad. I am glad you were able to relax more. We're having a good day...not too much drama and we got a couple chores done, including (FINALLY) putting a few flowers in front of the house--there is no color there otherwise!

    Hugs to you,
    MM

    1. Gosh, I can't believe there was a bit of your house that didn't have some colour in it :D Glad you brightened it up, that kind of thing makes a difference to our outlook, I think!
      Hugs back atcha,
