Healing for Mind, Body & Spirit

Today’s Daily Draw

There is an old saying that goes something like “Be careful what you wish for, you might just get it.” I am not sure who said this but there is a great deal of truth to the statement. We can spend a lot of time an energy wishing, hoping and working toward a goal only to discover that it doesn’t measure up to our expectations when we reach it. Which leaves us feeling a little disappointed, bored, or restless and ready to move on. This is where today’s card, the Four of Cups, comes in. This card speaks about abundance and the possibility of change.

Everything works in cycles. What is full, like the jars on our card, will empty and what was empty will in time fill. This is part of the lessons of life and we are the same. Interests and passions come and go. It could be a job or relationship doesn’t provide the excitement it used to. Maybe we worked to reach a goal only to discover it’s really disappointing.

The process of becoming full and empty takes time. The feeling of needing a change creeps up on us. We could find ourselves coming to the realization today that it’s time something is done to get back to feeling good and excited again. The first thing is to understand that we are the only thing holding us back. There is potential everywhere, even in the current situation. The card is a four which tells us we have a solid foundation built.  So, before it’s cast aside, perhaps we should turn our attention inward and reevaluate things to find the truth of the situation. What is it that is no longer appealing to us? Are we closed to the possibilities within our current situation? Is there anything we can do to get the passion back? Remember a change doesn’t mean there has to be a loss. It could be finding new possibilities in an existing situation.

Today’s Universal Number

Today’s universal energy is a Three. This is a pretty awesome energy to have supporting us. It’s expressive, joyful, optimistic and creative nature can go a long way to helping light a spark again.

Today’s Crystals

In evaluating a situation we are looking to find a connection between making sense and feeling right. The crystals I chose are Celestite and Rose Quartz to connect our head and heart. Celestite works with our Third Eye and Crown Chakra to help us find our guidance and see the truth of a situation. Rose Quartz can take that truth and help us find the passion that was once so exciting.

Today’s Daily Draw

We make hundreds of decisions everyday of our lives. Beginning with do we get up or hit the snooze button. Sometimes they are that easy and others we struggle to make up our minds. Choice is here to let us know that we could come face to face with an option today. I could be one we have been putting off or something totally unexpected that comes up out of nowhere. When faced with a decision we often go to family and friends for guidance, and that is fine but in the end we are the ones that have to live with what comes after we’ve made up our minds. Consider the options carefully and any long-term results. Keep in mind which choice is the healthiest and will make you happier. When you do the final choice should be pretty easy to make.

Today’s Universal Number

It is a Two Day and the energy its wonderful gentle energy is focused on harmony, peace and togetherness. This energy is also very intuitive and that is where the strength of the two is born. Listen to your intuition today, you will feel it and will know what to do.

When faced with a choice all our Chakras are involved in the decision. So, you get to pick!  The Root Chakra wants us to feel safe and grounded and that is the Red Jasper.

Our Solar Plexus Chakra wants us to like how a choice makes us feel empowered and that is Yellow Aventurine. Next is our Heart Chakra, it wants us to love our choice and that crystal is Green Aventurine. Moving up,our Throat Chakra is here and Blue Lace Agate will help us speak our truth. The Third Eye Chakra wants to help us see the outcome and use our intuition to make the correct choice and this crystal is the Sodalite. Finally we have our Crown Chakra and this wants us to receive our guidance clearly and the crystal is Amethyst. Which ones are best for you today?

Today’s Daily Draw

Have you ever been so passionate about something that you were prepared to throw all cautions out and go for it? If so today might be another one of those days. If not then let our card, the Queen of Wands, inspire you. The suit of wands can be a rowdy bunch because they reign over the element of fire, and fire is about passion, strength and enthusiasm. It’s a very masculine energy, and our Queen has more than what it takes to rule. She is a good kind and honest lady who is clever, wise, intuitive and playful.

The message our card brings is that we shouldn’t shy away from showing off our abilities and skills today. The sun rising behind our Queen hints that a new beginning, opportunity or idea could be coming. She has a fire burning telling us to light the fire of our passions and grab hold of a good sound opportunity if it comes. Be bold, brave and step in to be the strong leader if it’s necessary. Remember a good leader also inspires others so give credit where it’s due, be encouraging and help someone who is struggling if you can.

Today’s Universal Number

How appropriate that we have a One Day! The one energy is independent, and bold. Not about to sit around waiting for someone to do something. This energy will get up and get going, blaze a trail of its own rather than be a follower. Use it well today!

Today’s Crystals

You would think that a crystal that resonates with the Sacral Chakra would be a good choice today, and you wouldn’t be wrong but the choice today is Citrine. This crystal works well with the Solar Plexus and this Chakra is the center of our personal power. It is how we see ourselves in the world. The energy of citrine will give us a charge of good energy and creativity to step up and go for it today.

So many people resist change. They would rather stay in a situation that is not what they want or need because it’s either their comfort zone or fear is the barrier holding them back. Transformation is here to ask us if there is something in our lives that needs to end. Are we working on a project that is just not going well? Do we have a relationship that is long over but not ended? Do we have a bad habit that needs to be overcome? Maybe we know someone who is so closed minded that they refuse to see any point of view that is not theirs. There could be many situations in our lives that we feel is going nowhere and we are longing for something new.

Change is by no means easy, but when it’s time we shouldn’t push it away because it’s painful. The pain is allowing us to grow closer to the person we are meant to be. Endings are beginnings in disguise and we should allow the process to unfold. Let go of whatever it is that keeps us from soaring as high as we can fly. Don’t waste valuable time and energy today trying to change what can’t or won’t work. As we let go of what is not for our highest good we create space for what is new and better.

Today’s Universal Number

It’s interesting that today is a Nine Day and a card about endings came up. Got to love synchronicity! We are at a point of change. Finish up the things that are left undone. Consider the big picture and see what needs to go and let the energy of the day help. The number nine is also a lesson in love. You deserve the best so love yourself enough to go after it.

Today’s Crystals

When we are considering a change in our lives there are a few wonderful crystals that can help us work through the process. Thethree I chose from this list are Rutilated Quartz and Spessartine Garnet. Then of course I had to include my favorite crystal, Labradorite! I chose the Rutilated Quartz because it helps us get to the truth of a situation. Being a Quartz it will also amplify intent and help us let go of what isn’t working. Spessartine Garnet has a loving energy that helps us move through periods of change. It helps us let go of fear and gives us the confidence to work through to the other side of change. Labradorite is all about transitions. there is an element of magick to the crystal. It opens our intuition and helps us find our way.

 

 

Today’s Daily Draw

BJ mentioned yesterday that it was interesting when the same card comes back to us quickly in a daily card draw. Well Daughter of Air came up for us today and in a more traditional deck this beautiful maiden is the Page of Swords! She comes to us to talk about awareness and honesty. When we let go of all that is not fully us, the negative belief systems, the self judgment, shame, blame and all the negativity that we hold because we are comfortable in that space, we become fully ourselves and our spirits are free to see with a level of clarity that we otherwise don’t have. We are better able to travel our path because many of the roadblocks are gone.

There is a lot of movement in today’s card. Our maiden is facing some kind of issue. Her hair is being blown about by the wind. The clouds in the back ground look as if a storm is approaching, yet our Daughter of Air is calm. She has a blanket around her symbolizing that she has everything she needs and knows she is protected. A hawk rises into the sky behind her, telling us she is letting go and raising her level of awareness to get a bigger picture of what is going on.

So what does this mean for us today? This tells us that if we are fully ourselves, if we be and speak our truth, from a place of love of course, we place ourselves in a position where we can see a more detailed path. We are more aware and can see when to plan, when to act and direct ourselves in a more positive direction.

Today’s Universal Number

Today’s energy is an eight and this is awesome for us. Eight is about balance, order, strength and focus. These are just what we might need to help us through our day.

Today’s Crystal

I chose Clear Flourite to accompany our card today. The flourite family of crystal help us find balance, open our intuition, give us clarity, focus and help us concentrate. Clear Flourite works with the Crown Chakra to bring us clarity. It clears and energizes our aura to bring us to a place of calm and balance as well as opening our mind to a level awareness that allows us to see all potential possibilities before us.

Today’s Daily Draw

It’s interesting when doing a daily card and one comes back after a short time. We have to ask ourselves if we didn’t get the message the first time or there could be a new situation brewing that the card is coming to let us know about. The Pages are the Tarots messengers and they let us know that there is a challenge or opportunity coming. They are as intuitive as their Queens but lack her life experience. This can leave the page a little misunderstood and frustrated because he/she has lots of ideas that are exciting but they lack the important information or experience to get going.

The Page of Swords came just ten days ago to tell us that we had the possibility of a new idea or challenge coming and our page has returned. This return could be telling us that whatever was happening a few days ago could have a new twist that we need to prepare for. We could also have a shiny new challenge coming because life needs to be interesting doesn’t it? Don’t worry, whether we have something coming today or a new wrinkle in an existing situation, communication is important. Make sure that all the facts are clear before any decision is made. If the project is a team effort, have a meeting to share ideas and information.  Don’t let the size of the challenge scare you today. They are simply stepping stones to get us where we are going. Embrace it and get all the facts before you do anything.

Today’s Universal Number

We have a seven day and it couldn’t be more appropriate for us! Seven is the thinker and seeks knowledge and wisdom. The energy of the seven takes nothing for granted, it questions everything and perhaps today that is something we should consider as well.

Today’s Crystals

Rose Quartz is the choice for the day. The energy of this crystals is about love, forgiveness and healing. It could come in handy. Give yourself a break. Everyone deserves it now and then.

Optical Calcite In The Morning Light

The crystal posts are back today with Optical Calcite. This is an interesting crystal. It grows naturally in these cool parallelograms, and it’s energy gets your whole body vibrating when you pick it up. This clear form of calcite was found first in Iceland and was called Iceland Spar. Some of the other places its found are in Mexico, Brazil and the United States. The light refraction of this crystal was studied by several early scientists like Isaac Newton. Another interesting fact about this crystal is that during WW2 Optical Calcite was used for the sighting equipment big guns.

This form of calcite clears attachments and will activate all the chakras. It helps give us clarity to see things from a new perspective and focus our efforts on achieving a goal. Optical Calcite has characteristics of Clear Quartz in that it amplifies positive energy, clears negative energy and emotions as well as fear based emotion. Putting a piece in a room will clear any stagnant negative energy in the space and bring in lighter good energy. This crystal is also unique in that it can be can be programmed like clear quartz.

On the physical level this crystal works to help our bones and joints. I can tell you from my personal experience it’s great. I have been working with my piece because I’ve had a problem with my right knee. I have some emotion stuck there and it’s been causing some pretty good pain. This form of calcite also works to balance the calcium in our bodies and helps it to absorb vitamins and mineral.

We have reached the point where I must say I am not a doctor and can not diagnose or prescribe any healing possibility. I am not suggesting anyone turn away from allopathic medicine and all the happy stuff that goes with it. By sharing the healing aspect of crystals I offer information about alternate possibilities that can perhaps work in conjunction with your doctors advice.

Today’s Daily Draw

At some point we all come to a realization that things need to change. Quite often we have a subtle feeling of uneasiness for a while that we can’t put a finger on. Like we’re not comfortable in our own skin until one day we’re struck with an epiphany of sorts and we understand something has to go, and this is where today’s card comes in.

The Shaman came to tell us not to waste our time on the things that don’t matter. We should focus on what is the most important to us. We all have things that must be done whether we like it or not, but if something doesn’t feel right to us or resonate with who we are becoming, then is it time to let it go? The shaman asks us to look at what really motivates us on both a physical and spiritual level. Take time to explore your thoughts, feelings and beliefs today. Listen to your intuition. Are the crow and the wolf talking to about transitions, personal power and balance in our lives? If so then perhaps it’s time for change and growth.

Today’s Universal Number

Today we have a six day and we know that this energy is a focus on relationships. By becoming more fully who we are meant to be we are better able to be there for the people we care most about.

Today’s Crystals

I love the energy of today’s crystal choice. I chose Malachite and this might seem like a stretch but this beautiful green crystal is both grounding and protective. It absorbs negative energy and amplifies the positive. Malachite works to keep us in tune with our inner truth, boosts our self confidence and our personal power.

Finding Normal

The last ten months have been quite a ride. There were days where I would go to Yeshoa and ask why me? I knew the answer he was going to give, and he was so incredibly loving every time I asked. It was karmic. I had a big lesson to learn. Some lessons are rough ones. I hope I got an A++ on the class because it’s not a lesson I care to repeat.

With most of the details of my Mothers transition taken care of now I am left trying to find a new normal. Big changes in our lives can leave us hanging and grasping for something to hold onto. Most of us eventually figure it out and find our footing again. For me this change feels different because I spent so much time caring for Mom and doing my best to help her transition with a level of dignity that she deserved. Now that she has gone home I am wondering what now?

The answer, of course, is to truly live and be happy; focus on healing my body, mind and spirit, and find my passions again. I am doing my emotional work and getting back into the groove of both my blogs as well as my other social media again. There are a couple of other irons in the fire that I am excited about. I have to say that after last years fiery one energy I am looking forward to the calmer growth and expansion of this years 11/2 energy.

I would like to give a big thank you to the small group of followers that have hung in there with me through this long absence. ❤ You guys are awesome and I appreciate you so much.

See you soon

Blessed Be ❤ Sharon
