Day 23: Star of Bethlehem
Oracle Card for the Day: Kuan Yin ~ Compassion // Lakshmi ~ Bright Future
Meditation: 11 minutes // Zen Guitar // Kangse (Ending bell)
Notes: Huge anxiety and trouble breathing. Blockage in my throat. Embrace. Surrender. Acceptance. It went away as soon as my distracting thoughts set-in. Candles burned the brightest tonight. Behind closed eyes. Eyes wide shut. They are a reflection of my soul. The poinsettia is growing!!! Healing!!!
Mindful Moment: Oracle pulled to guide me in the unblocking of my throat: Kuan Yin (I knew she was guiding me, the card was just external confirmation). I feel that the unblocking is a process that only time with my soul will open it. All will pass and be revealed. The second oracle came with Kuan Yin, they are a pair. I was meant to pull them together.
Lakshmi reminds me to keep going on my abundant path and following my heart and whims. Both oracles are radiating, high vibration and in nature. Receiving all that nature has to give and giving back in return.
The Pick: The 6th remedy. On Saturday I shared the remedies with Rachel and although I wanted to bring six for her to choose from, I kept feeling that five was the number to be. I even played with guides/intuition by saying whatever the last number of the time is, is the number of remedies I am to bring. It was 12:05pm. Five it was!!!
Therefore when I got home, tired, exhausted and possibly up for arranging the remedies, I opened up the carrying case and still drawn to the remedy I wanted to bring with me, I knew I was intuitively called to it.
Observations: Still. Heavy. In a trance. Sleepy. Heavy. Rooted. Immovable. Cemented. Grateful for The Divine (White Tara) mantlepiece.
Mindful Moment No. 2: I sit like Kuan Yin: arms in a touching to complete the circuit, cross-legged, being held and also holding the flowers. All whilst White Tara (altar piece) and Lakshmi face me from the altar.
