This week has been rather busy and stressful, mainly stuff to do with my day job :( Anyhow, I didn't actually meditate on Thursday or Friday - one of the downsides of working from home is I don't even have the option of a walking meditation if time is tight...
Anyhow, this morning I was feeling very tired, but still chanted a half mala of Om Mani Padme Hum, and a half mala to Yemaya. It was good to get back to it, and I enjoyed the visualisations to call the circle and open it again: picturing the Goddesses Oya (East), Brigid (South), Cerridwen (West) and Hekate (North), as I called the quarters, and invoking a pentacle to lift above me and spread energy from each point to create a globe of protection around me :)
As is often my practice, I also drew some cards. Wasn't sure where I was going with it, but when a card fell out, I took it as the theme, and then drew five more. Shown here from the Mystical Lenormand (Königsfurt-Urania, 2004).
The theme is the Key - what is central to my day, the Key that will unlock the best possible outcomes. The answer is Sun, Lady, Fish, Book, Man. So, a day for success and happiness if I can get into the flow, and be decisive in working on a project I want to get finished :)
This makes a lot of sense to me. As I say, I've been focused on regular work for most of the end of the week, and was focused on my son at the start of the week. So, all told, I've had no time or energy for other projects in between. I shall make that my priority for the rest of today!
