The Emerald Fountain

Twice in the last week, since I did my releasing fears meditation, this card has come up.  It is Drink From The Emerald Fountain from the Kuan Yin Oracle (Blue Angel, 2012).  The description is just perfect: the fountain is Kuan Yin's heart chakra, which overflows with love!  The card recommends taking support and sustenance from the abundant well of the Goddess, in times of need.

And these have been tricky times.  My mother's operation went well at the outset, but already some of her symptoms are recurring, a bad sign.  On top of that, my elder son has been having some recurring symptoms after his operation in August that we were not expecting.  So, lots of medical concerns, and I have been so grateful to have this spiritual practice to act as a support, helping me stay calm and feel connected.

My mother is looking into alternate ways to deal with some of her symptoms, and as for my son, I just spoke with a registrar who said these symptoms aren't as bad a sign as we had feared.  Still, there may be more hospital visits in the works :(

I am grateful for the nurturing presence of the Goddess in my life.

    1. Thank you, Ellen. And yes, it is a comforting deck, although it does also have strength - it talks about resolving conflicts, and today's card is about forgiving yourself and others (not always easy). As for the setbacks, we've come up with a plan for my son, and my mother has some plans of her own. So, at least I don't feel lost :)
      Big hugs!

  2. (((Kerry))), I am so sorry for you worries about your mom and son, but I am glad you have a spiritual practice to ground yourself in (I sometimes feel like I'm in the eye of the hurricane). May both your mom and son find beneficial options to help with their symptoms, and may you have all the strength you need to be supportive of both of them.
