July 21, 2014 - The Only Way Out Is Through
THEME: 20 - Awakening (2+0=2 Priestess Influence)
I see a cavern in the rocks, and I feel that I will find awakening, only if I look at my darkness, and understand, as well as accept that part of myself. I seek wisdom of Kwan Yin to Guide me on this Quest.
GUIDE: 11 - Justice (1+1=2 Priestess Influence)
When journeying into my darkness, remember that my own lightness is with me, and balances out and harmonizes my core. There is no light without darkness, just as there is no darkness without light.
MEDITATION: Ace of Air
Contemplate and see with new eyes what I find. All is useful to my journey, all has brought me to where I stand today. But judgement of self is unnecessary and will not help. Seek objective examination.
SHADOW CARD: Four of Earth
Thus begins a deeper journey. To understand myself, and why I am the way I am, wil allow for creating a firmer foundation, a stronger structure, and an organized approach to living more beautifully which leads to awakening.
WHAT IT ALL MEANS:
There is no time like the present to wake up; to seek to know more. A new phase comes when I begin work on myself and I have a huge storehouse of information and knowledge to work with. Don't allow the knowledge to be hoarded by the parts of me which hide in darkness.
The Priestess guides me to The Mysteries. Her presence is especially strong.
The deep purple of the Awakening Sky, tinged with the red and yellows at the entrance to the cavern, flows into the robes of Justice, and the Ace of Air, morphs these into the delicate light which is like a lantern, held aloft for the journey. All of these mingle in the Four of Earth to Color my World with the yellows, gold and reds of an bright Autumn day.
POSITION IS EVERYTHING:
Awakening and Justice tand as two sides of one coin; the first facing away, the second turning to face me. The newly formed butterfly looks up into the ether, and the squirrel faces it all to receive the information which filters in and works to sort, analyze, and arrange in proper order.
Justice, a personal card, is my GUIDE.
