The past speaks in a thousand voices, warning and comforting, animating and stirring us to action.Felix Adler
Memories come in some form today, bittersweet pictures of the past, crumpled at the corners and indistinct. Their comforting aura draws you to places that are long gone, and there is a yearning for something that has been lost. Dwelling here however, may be a false comfort, perhaps soothing in the face of the work ahead that you know needs to be done. Today the past is a distraction from the future that you are trying to build, and although the work is tiring, it brings with it a warm glow of life rather than the salty remembrances of tears; take a deep breath, and welcome the new energy, feel the passion for possibility.
Ritual for Change
Rise a half an hour earlier than usual, make a hot cup of tea, and sit yourself in your favourite chair. While the tea is cooling, shuffle the cards, trying to find the feeling that is uppermost in your heart. Try to still your mind from questioning, and just focus on the feeling. When you are happy with the feeling of the cards, draw any two. Whilst you are drinking your tea, read the relevant stories, referring to the paintings, and see what comes up for you. Be aware of how you are feeling, and make short notes if you have the time; a journal of these readings can be a valuable and precious asset.
The first card will tell you what to focus on as you go about your daily life, the people you meet with, the work that you do, the necessary chores, the duties and the tasks. How to physically arrive in the best shape, at the end of your day. The second card is for your secret self, the chrysalis within. It will tell you what is needed to aid your transformation, what feeds your soul and how to cope with the burdens that you bear. This card will keep you going, guiding you until after the sun goes down, and sleep beckons……..Rinse and repeat for as long as you need; don’t rush, change rarely happens overnight.
