Seeking Guidance

After yesterday's meditation and reading, today I was also inspired to sit.  I chanted Om Mane Padme Hum, and felt it resonate through me - lovely!  I also drew some Lenormand cards again, shown here from the Mystical Lenormand (Königsfurt-Urania, 2004).


The Bouquet fell out as I was shuffling, and I took it once again as a theme, then drew the Stars, the Key and the Moon.

The theme is seeking a feeling of grace, a connection with spirit.  And the message is that the key to this is to find guidance in connecting with my own emotion and intuition.  It's funny, because, in regular cards, this actually echoes yesterday's reading to an extent.  Once again, I'm being told to seek out guides, be they spiritual or more practical.

It's interesting, too, as just before I went up to meditate I'd seen an artist I like offering a workshop for healing through art.  She uses affirmations while creating the piece, which you then remember whenever you see the artwork.  I like that idea!  It feels like a practical way of bringing a more spiritual awareness into something everyday...  So, while I'm probably not going to take that workshop right now, it has inspired me with something I'd like to do over the coming months :)

  1. I am so happy that you've found your rithm/flow again!
    Maybe it could be fun to use freeflow painting without trying to depict something as a way to connect to your guides Afterwards you could "read" the colors and the shapes that you've made intuitively. Perhaps they'll reveal some characteristics of your guide.
    In any way while painting you'll probable were connected. Or else you just had fun.:)

    1. Oh, I love that idea, Ellen! I've done something similar in the past with mandalas, but I'd love to try out my acrylics (bought a couple of months ago and still unopened) with something like that... :D

    2. I've just followed my own advice and painted with wet watercolors on wet paper. When it is dry I'll add some more color. It was odd to notice that when I turned it upside down it looked like a dark forest. An hour later, My Wildwood Tarot had arrived :)
