Integration

Today's card is from the Conscious Spirit Oracle (U.S. Games, 2013).  It is titled Integration, and says "I combine body, mind and soul to lift all of humanity into a new dimension."   My first thought was that I can barely drag myself around today (very disturbed night between baby and DH coming home late), never mind lifting all of humanity into a new dimension! 

Yet, it's true I'd asked for a focus for the day.  And they say if we improve ourselves, that spreads out in ripples.  So, today I shall work on feeling more integrated, more connected with spirit and my self. Which I really hope includes having a nap at some point!

Anyhow, I also decided to draw a little Lennie line, with the Mystical Lenormand (Königsfurt-Urania, 2004):


1) Tower (19) equals 20 - Garden - social isolation/public institution.
2) Man (28) equals 30 - Lily - harmonious rationality/peaceful man.
3) Scythe (10) equals 13 - Child - new way to cut/shock about a child.

I've been seeing lots of "traditional" style Lenormand readings on the German forums, and following that this would say that a peaceful man connected to a public institution will give me a shock about my child today.  Which is quite possible as I'm expecting a call from our doctor, and while I hope he'll say we've got a referral to a clinic for my eldest later today, he could well say something quite different.

From a more empowering perspective I read this as my needing to look rationally yet peacefully at the social isolation I've been feeling around some issues with my younger son, so as to find a new way to cut through it.  Getting het up about it, or making a leap without doing any research will not serve me well.  It's nothing very serious, but at the moment the only way he sleeps is with me.  Which rather crimps my being able to leave the house or do anything much.  He's six months old now, and I want to foster some independence in him.  However, having had such an unusual experience with my first child, I'm a bit at a loss as to what to do with a "normal" child.  Ok, some research and perhaps finding someone appropriate to ask...

  1. Perhaps the Scythe/Child means you will see a new way to care for your children while also caring for yourself? Hope you can carve out some time to rest today!

    1. Thanks, Bev. I did manage to rest, if not sleep. And I did also try something new with him, which at least half way worked :)

  2. I have had a clinging (crying) baby too (for more than a year. In my case the best way to deal with it was to accept it and follow her rhythm. The more relaxed I was the better she thrived. I like Bev's, mantra: This too shall pass. Now she is an adult woman and she sleeps in her own bed :D. Trust in you child and in yourself. He will be a toddler before you know it

    1. Well, already I've made the decision not to start any new training until he starts at nursery, in about a year. As you say, I just focused on him, and helping him relax and sleep yesterday. Turns out it is also in part because he has his first cold (not the kind of milestone parents look forward to)…

  3. Hi Kerry, he's a little baby :) and the children absorb and perceive everything, and I think as everybody in the family are with stress (which is normal in all families when we have concerns of any kind at home), probably he's stressed too. Try to take a while for you and rest a bit, because we, mothers are everything and the pillar of the family. You need to be calm for you and for your family.Todo se va a ir solucionando :) Te mando un beso grande, que todo esté bien y las mejores Muchas Estrellas!!!

    1. Hi LM, I like that "we mothers are the pillar of the family" :) And it's true, too, he gets upset when his brother is in pain (which has been a lot, recently). I'll try to think of some more de-stressing things to do with him… Besos fuertes para ti y tu familia!
