Week Ahead : Camelot Oracle ~ Be Sensitive

This coming week we’re joined by Elaine of Carbonek (Or Helaine) and reminded to be sensitive to those around us, especially if they’re vulnerable.

Elaine‘s story within the Camelot histories is yet another that was unknown to me. I did not know she was Galahad’s mother or that Lancelot was his child. Elaine has gone through so much in her journey from loving someone who was drugged (whether she drugged him or not is not clear) so he thought she was someone else (Guinevere), to motherhood and not having much love returned from her son.

sensitiveI wonder how on earth she coped, being in that situation? In the image, she’s pregnant (probably with Galahad) but she’d been left to raise the child by Lancelot, so she found no love in return.Β  Does the old adage: “Be careful what you wish for?” come to your mind? It does to mine!

She’s a sensitive soul, but she’s one that can empower us. She’s one to help us make a decision, but we must always remember that we are always free to make the choices we do, we’re just sometimes shown alternatives so we can make an informed or a better decision.

Our feelings often disable us, prevent us from making any kind of choice. This is fear, our ego’s talking. Did Elaine listen to that ego initially? She must have stopped listening to that side of her somewhere along the path either before or after Galahad was born.

The joys of motherhood are untold, they simply cannot be written, if they were, they’d repeat over and over and it would seem boring. However, when the anguish hits, we need to work around it, through it. Elaine has already moved beyond those debilitating feelings.

This is her message this week: Work through the feelings that disable us, the ones that make us freeze like deer in the headlights. She is there to help us assuage those negative, disabling feelings, no matter the strife or anguish. We can and must move forward from those feelings, trust your own sensitive nature.

Good luck to you this week in doing this work! I have no doubt it’ll be hard but it will be so worth it. If you need help in doing this, you can enlist my help via this method.

Blessings!

  1. Always interesting to go back to the tales of old. Pushing through the pain is a good lesson. Making choices and working through what happens. And being pregnant can be about creating other things than children. So much to learn. With kids and creating things. Good thing we have the ability to keep going.

  2. As always, your readings mystify me. It all seems so complicated to me, but the message are very clear once you explain them. I am very sensitive and do not always trust myself to make the right decisions. Or rather, I do a lot of hand wringing prior to making a big decision, which I will be faced with this coming week. Interesting to see how it all turns out!

    1. I am glad that my explanations simplify things for you Laurie. If you need to ask for strength when the time comes, I hope Elaine and I can help! πŸ™‚

  3. OMG!!! A Camelot Oracle. I HAVE to have it. I have always loved the Arthurian stories and Mists of Avalon is one of my favorite books. Going shopping………..

    1. *LOL* You’re VERY welcome Louise and I’m glad I introduced you to it! πŸ™‚
      What’s your take on Elaine then, since you are aware of the Arthurian legends? πŸ™‚

  4. Love this post!! I know from personal experience that decisions that are made with ego are never the right ones to make. Yet fear empowers ego and so the sooner we all believe in our soul purpose the sooner we rid ourselves of that negative shadow. Thanks for sharing this!

    1. Hello Barbara – WELCOME to the blog and you’re welcome for the sharing! πŸ™‚
      Yes, decisions from the ego are a right royal pain in the rear end…. so are comments when the ego is in full swing and your mouth forgets to disengage. :/
      Oh well, such is life! πŸ™‚
