Day 11: Pine
Oracle Card for the Day: Abundantia ~ Prosperity
Meditation: 16 minutes // No sound // Shürong (Ending bell)
Notes: I came out of it at 4:20 remaining. This is my birthday which is coming up quick! I got cold feet as I was sitting outside, so I put my hood up. Debated going back in but decided to practice discipline and curious to see where it could lead. I found myself focusing on prosperity and the calling on the oracle of Abundantia during my connection to my inner self. My thought flittered to the creative process and actualisation of a BFR oracle-style set. Be your own healer. For the first part of the meditation I spoke out-loud for the first time ever to my true self asking it take over my head and my heart. Help me to hear it so I can make all my decisions from that place. Felt the vibrations of in the physical. Sound echos mimicked my soul murmurs. Back to the oracles, I pulled Abundantia two days in a row! I know have my expanders for the life I want to create, let’s do this! I need to make the space = time + financial freedom. This is en-route to me now :) I am abundant in ideas and opportunities.
Mindful Moment: Long day at work, with no time to do my spiritual practice in the morning so I decided to take my meditation and the remedies to Regent’s Park in London which is near my work. Currently debating applying for two corporate jobs, further building on a creative dream I have for the remedies, and being grateful to the Universe for showing me the true callings of my soul in the form of professionals who make a living educating others about nature’s ability to heal. Endless gratitude. Also conscious of a text from a previous flatmate who I set a boundary with and have been repeatedly tested in it. This has been interesting for my self-worth - to take all of the insults and just observe them without attachment. I do not make choices that will result in me resenting someone else for a decision that I have power to make. I chose a life without resentment and this has become the building block of my own self-worth.
Arrangement: I allowed all the bottles to roll around in the grass first. Play is always the utmost importance for all beings! From there I anchored the oracle so it would not blow away and decided to point the nipples ;) to prosperity. In the grass. I loved the smell, the sounds, the sights, the feelings :D
The Pick: Wind blown. I picked a weedy looking flower nearby (which immediately afterwards I regretted since I never believe in uprooting or killing nature) but decided anywho to hold it above the circle and let the wind blow it the remedy of its choice. It ended up here (see the very last image).
Observations: Not too much. Throat sensations similar to pain but very minor - little uncomfortable movements. A little bit sleepy.
