This week off from work turned into a busy week off from work. Certainly not my intention. The plan was to get some much needed rest to re-charge my total self. This was not to be. I do not enjoy shopping, however, Tuesday and Wednesday were spent shopping. Had to be done. Did very well for myself and am pleased with my purchases. Tuesday evening was a family BBQ for my son's 28th birthday (actually on the 11th). I made him a cake and added various coins wrapped in waxed paper to the mixture. Doing this made the evening a joyous success. We laughed and laughed.
Recently, I experienced some middle back, shoulder and neck soreness that finally seemed to have left me. So yesterday, I resumed my weight workout only to find while doing sit-ups, it hurt my back. I was not able to continue. Strange for me since I've never had back issues. It is back to the yoga only for me for awhile. I can still walk or run, no problem, and perhaps some of the weight exercises. This was part of why I wanted a week of total relaxation. I think carrying all my packages on Wednesday did irritate the left side. What was I thinking.
Today, I brought out a tarot deck I have never used but bought quite some time ago - Manga Tarot (Riccardo Minetti) from Lo Scarabeo. I played with it for awhile looking at the pictures, getting a feel for it. Love the colours and the artwork. Very different but readable to my eyes.
Before using I wrote down "fun thoughts" and then drew 3 cards.
10 cups - nice card. positive card. I felt it was telling me every moment has its worth. The rainbow shines after the rain and how beautiful is that. 10 being the number of the Wheel of Fortune, I am thinking perhaps a turning point is on its way.
Prince of Swords - Oh okay, this Prince is looking at me as if he is not pleased with me. Rightly so. Takes me to what I wrote down before I started "fun thoughts" ... well Swords are thoughts ... not necessarily fun ... but I do have ideas rambling around in my head that need brought out. I sometimes let my emotions (cups) challenge me in a negative way rather than positive.
Ace of Swords - another sword. Again thoughts. With the ace the thought can lead to the truth and with the Prince, I had better get using my thoughts. My rainbow will shine but only I can make it shine.
I like these cards. They reinforce my goals. I am going to write up an agenda, something I can work with on a daily basis moving forward. A work in progress and that is okay. As long as I continue on the path ...
to be continued ....
