Though I haven't been posting, and despite finishing my 21 day sadhana chanting Om Shree Dhanvantre Namaha on Sunday, I have continued to chant this and Om Tare Tuttare Ture Svaha daily. I've tried to keep to the visualisation of my son surrounded by light for the Dhanvantre, and have moved to visualising the Goddess Oracle version of Tara during her chant. This morning I also did three rounds of kappalabhati breathing, 70, 80 and 100 cycles, which felt good.
As for today's cards, shown here from the Mystical Lenormand (Königsfurt-Urania, 2004), I asked for a spiritual focus, but got something a little different or more - practical and spiritual.
How I read these is that my core issue today will be feeling impinged on at home (Man, House). First we have some workmen coming in, because there have been issues with our guttering. Then we have someone staying the night for my son's sake, but whom I don't know all that well. Responding to what feels quite stressful, one typical pattern for me would be emotional eating (Moon, Bear). However, what I see recommended is that I instead retreat into myself, possibly into work, and then later some crafty pursuit, to distract me (Woman, Tower). I always find doing something craft-based also a great way to connect with spirit and feel in the moment. So, I shall try to follow this advice, seeing as I've been doing okay the last few days in terms of eating, and wouldn't want to spoil it.
