Back to Tara Again

This morning, I chanted half a mala of Om Mani Padme Hum, and then felt called to chant half a mala to Tara.  I think it's because I'm concerned about my son going into hospital, and so chanting to his matron goddess seemed a good idea.

I also drew some cards, shown here from the Mystical Lenormand (Königsfurt-Urania, 2004).

Key, Whips, Letter, Snake, Tower.
My first reading of these related quite specifically to my son's hospital admission.  In the letter we originally got, and a phone call at the start of the week, I was told he should be in by 11.30am, and start fasting from 7.30am.  However, yesterday someone left a message saying he should be in by 10, and fasting from 6, which is a lot worse for him.  The key to overcoming arguments, then, is to rely on what is written, when setting boundaries with an institution.

Not that I just rely on a card reading to decide these things.  Later in the morning I tried calling three different numbers to ask which message I should follow.  Didn't get through on any of the numbers, but you can't say I didn't try.  We may compromise, and stop him eating at 7, and be in for 10.30 :D

My second reading is that insights into clearing out negative patterns come from journalling, a way for me to let go of feelings of isolation.  Once again, that'd be this blog ;)  So, while we're in hospital I may not be able to post, but I will try to keep a journal nevertheless...


  1. Good good luck!!!

    I will be thinking of you both and sending healing and smooth sailing.


  2. I'm thinking of you too and hoping that by now your son is resting comfortably and recovering.

  3. Health, happiness and wholeness to you and those you love. So mote it be.

  4. Thank you all for the well-wishes. We go in tomorrow, and I'm not sure when I'll next get on-line. But I shall hold you all in my heart, as pillars of love and support!

  5. Perhaps You will read this when you are back and hopefully all went well. I will be praying for you and your boy

    1. Thank you very much, Ellen! All prayers and good wishes are much appreciated :)
