Our midweek post this week isn’t a storyboard, it demonstrates a typical three card reading and this week, in order to realign myself, I’ve drawn a Mind, Body and Spirit set of three.
My head, body and spirit are out of kilter this week and since this is my blog, I’m taking advantage of the ability to read for myself (some folks can’t, which is fine 🙂 ) and sharing the cards I drew in a Mind, Body & Spirit context. I also chatted with two folks in this industry, a friend from way across the pond, in helping me get my head sorted out.
I finally raised my head above myself and start building a bridge, when I was very recently sent sympathies for suffering from PND via a private conversation with someone who I’d love to meet and like so many people involved in the Tarot world, I have yet to meet. However, I digress. I was a bit like Voldermort at the end of Harry Potter, hiding under a bench, half dead. I was given sympathy and I responded very quickly with: Ach no, it’s no PND…. really, I’m fine! It’s x, y and z…. When in truth, a defence mechanism had kicked in. I got angry, then I got scared…. someone had figured out my wee secret! How?! I’ve never met this old crone, though we’ve spoken frankly in private numerous times! How come they saw through my façade (okay, it wasn’t a very good brave face really, was it?) when others around me haven’t? Or if they have, they’ve held their whist and kept the peace?
Then it dawned on me. I was lying to myself, to my family. No, I’ve not been to the doctors since my 6 week check for PND… I’ve seen them for other things, not this. Well, no more lying! Then something else happened that I don’t want to elaborate on, but this is where my distant friend spoke good common sense. I realised 24 hours later, I have no control over this “something else” and I should really just build a bridge and get over it. The problem I perceive is of my making and may not have any grain of my truth about it.
So, whilst my body is now properly healing from the fantastic events of February last, it’s time with this cold, howling, Cancer Moon to sort out my mind and spirit and bring it all back into one place and space. The Tardis has nothing on me in this regard! :laughing:
The first card is my Mind: I need to be generous with my thoughts and more positive with it. Not something I’ve been feeling for a while. I need to find time to meditate and chill out. Work out that yoga class and get on with it. Body: The major challenge and boundaries are now set, I will no more put my body through child-birth (3 is more than enough, I promise!) and I must not judge myself for how I look (think of the lady in The World card, even if I am being modest!) Spirit: Let is shine! And with that, this song comes into my head. Thanks lads, my theme song for 2014 has just been found. It’s time to banish the blues and let my light and Spirit shine.
My head is my own, no other psyche was harmed in the making of this blog post. And if, like me, you need some sound advice, you can always book your personal and private reading here.As always, I’ve used The Wildwood by John Matthews and illustrated by Will Worthington.
