Catch-Up

My chanting practice has been a bit less structured the last few days.  On Sunday I didn't chant at all, as my son's carer arrived two and a half hours late!  On Monday, I chanted silently to Tara while practising yoga, and then did a full mala to her in sitting meditation, as I prepared to take my son into hospital.  On Tuesday, I chanted a full mala to Yemaya, because that was what called to me, a connection with mothering, rather than purely with my son's matron Goddess.  And today, I will go back to the half mala of Om Mani Padme, and the full mala to Yemaya, as I feel the need to remind myself of the importance of compassion, but also to bring nurture to myself and my son.

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

My first reading was that I need to bring both logic and beauty to my dealings with friends, and particularly my DH, who I often see as my faithful companion :)  So, no arguments, and try to find pleasant ways to say what needs to be said.

Secondly, I saw a message about bringing a rational approach to creative projects, particularly one which has required a great deal of fidelity.  A need to prioritise logically the work I do on it today.  Okay, time to get busy!

  1. A very affectionate-looking draw!

    I liked your interpretation. I hope things are going smoothly this week! I don't know whether you figured out anything scheduling-wise but I hope it all works out.

    XOXO,

    1. The draw was really useful actually. I didn't do as well as I would have liked on the prioritising front. On the other hand, I did have a potentially difficult conversation with a friend that I think I managed really well, expressing things in ways she could hear without being offended :)

      OXOX,
      Kx

    2. I'm glad to hear that. The reading does seem very positive overall--glad it gave advice that you could use. That's the best kind of reading!

      Hugs,

    1. He's doing okay, thanks. I'm just praying he doesn't get ill between now and when they've rescheduled his operation, as that would push it back again :( More appointments with him next week - for a third issue. Ah well...

    2. Poor thing. Poor mom. I know how draining it is. {{{hugs}}}

    3. Thanks, Siddaleah! The appointment yesterday went well, and actually ruled out some serious things, so the doctor said we were already doing all the right stuff and she wouldn't change anything. It was pretty draining, though - left home at 7.40am, and got back at 4.30pm, with several screaming tantrums in between (fair enough, they did do quite painful, unpleasant things at points).
