Kali Sadhana Day 19

I didn't sleep well Saturday night, in large part because my son woke me with a jolt at about 1am, and I really struggled to get back to sleep after.  I was still up, making up milk for his breakfast, at 3.30am.  Another part of it was that I had a sudden idea, and couldn't stop thinking about the ramifications.  I eventually went downstairs to write down the "plan", to get it out of my head.

When I went up to my altar space later in the day to practice yoga and meditate, I noticed my new moon reading, still sitting on my altar.  Release the Warrior Prince (Knight of Wands), and embrace the World.  My first thought was that I'm not doing too well on that front - being up at all hours enthused about an idea is very Warrior Prince-like!  Then, I realised that actually, this was an idea that I've had percolating for a year - it was one of the "goals" that I wrote into my 2013 Incredible Year planner, but never managed to do anything about because I couldn't figure out what my action steps should be, couldn't see how to make it work.  Now, I have seen that.  So, it's a kind of completion, a World moment of ending the "planning" cycle, and allowing space for the next, hopefully "action", cycle!

I did a slightly longer practice: 34 minutes of yoga while silently chanting Om Krim Kalikaye Namaha.  After sitting, I only chanted a half mala out loud, as I was running late.  Felt no need to draw cards, given I'd revisited my new moon reading :)

    1. Well, I didn't get a nap yesterday, but I did get a good night's sleep :) As for the idea, I actually have to do the work, but at least I have a plan now!
