This morning, I was up ridiculously early with my son again: from 4.40am, though at least he'd only woken me twice during the night.  So, when I got the chance, I went back upstairs and meditated - half a male of Om Mani Padme Hum, a full mala to Yemaya - and drew some cards, shown here from the Mystical Lenormand (Königsfurt-Urania, 2004).

Despite two "negative" cards, I read these in a positive light, as saying that blockages to peace would end.  And, whether it was partly through my faith, or just because, it proved true.  When I went back to bed for a nap, I dropped off easily without any help, and got two good naps in, totalling two and a half hours.

I compare that to yesterday, when I went back to bed after meditating, took a herbal sleep supplement, and still didn't manage to nap, despite quite a short and restless night.  One difference was the fact that I had worked all day Saturday, completing one project on my to-do list, and making inroads into another.  They had both been things praying on my mind yesterday, stopping me sleep.

I wonder if there will be any other ways in which I feel more at peace today?  Yesterday, I wanted to practise yoga, but ended up doing step because I was cold.  Though today is colder than yesterday, I'm not feeling it as much.  So, I think I'll also take this as encouragement to do a peaceful yoga practice :D


  1. Yikes!

    Sounds awfully exhausting. I hope tonight is much better for you. I always have my fingers crossed that you get better sleep but I think I need stronger mojo!


  2. Ha ha, that's sweet of you MM. Still, it'll take plenty of mojo, I'm afraid. Though, fingers crossed, my son's sleep may get better after his operation, which is scheduled for next Monday!

    Hope you had a good, restful weekend, and that you're feeling strong and positive :)

    Huge hugs,
