Worries and Chants

Since my last post, I've continued chanting the Nine Goddess chant, and I'm really enjoying it.  I try to visualise each Goddess as I chant her name.  And the more I do it, the easier it is to remember which order I have them in: Isis, Tara, Oya, Brigid, Cerridwen, Hekate, Kali, Durga, Yemaya.  I didn't chant or meditate on Monday, as my son had a really bad night and I was exhausted.  Every other day, though, it's been a lovely practice.

Today, I also decided to draw some cards to look at my worries about my son going into hospital for an operation.  I asked what would help me cope, and the answer from the Mystical Lenormand (Königsfurt-Urania, 2004) was helpful.  I drew three cards from a fan, and after I'd done so, one more card was out on it's own.  When I scooped the cards back up, it ended up at the bottom of the deck, and I felt drawn to place it underneath the others as a final message.


What I see in this is that I have no control over whether or not his operation will go ahead - Paths undermined by Mice - and that I just need to trust that things will work out one way or another (the Key suggests success, but doesn't say when).  The Stars are a message of hope, and also a reminder to stay clear, to see what I can influence and what I have to accept as being written in the stars, beyond my control.  I also see the line of three talking about my worries, those invisible, undermining critters, and how I feel I should make decisions and take action.  Yet, the Stars also advise that I trust in science.  A different perspective, though with a similar message :)

  2. Thank you for inspiring me in making my own goddess chant. I have searched on the net for a chant for me but in the end they make me restless instead of bringing me in a meditative state. Now I have made one of my favorite goddesses. And I have just meditated with them for the first time and it felt so good. So again thank you for this idea
