Today, I again chanted a full mala of Om Mani Padme Hum, using a slightly more complicated melodic version, which kept my mind on the chanting better as it was harder for me to achieve. When I did visualise, I pictured a lotus flower, though that did occasionally lead me into thoughts about the lotus flower painting I have sketched, but not yet coloured :/
As for cards, I asked what message I should hear today and got: Man, Letter, Ship. Shown here from the Mystical Lenormand (Königsfurt-Urania, 2004).
My first reading of this was that written logic brings sea changes. That's to do with work, where I've been drafting a legal document. Secondly, I saw something about crafting something tangible for a business venture. So, I have already taken steps to get something moving on that front. Finally, after-the-fact, I saw the need for practical evidence of something for trade. I had to document something for a commercial transaction, more work.
At a more spiritual level, I see a message about making tangible the logic of my spiritual path. Perhaps this suggests I should actually set down an intention for my meditation over the next few weeks. Okay, I shall chant a daily mala of Om Mani Padme Hum, and change the cards on my altar to reflect this choice :)
