About The Card:
The eclipse is often there as I hold my focus to the top of my forehead during meditation. It is the opening of a dark space where I have hidden great treasures. And with each meditation I feel the curiosity of a child to draw closer and take a deeper look!
During this meditation came a great healing and undrstanding about relationships represented by the man & woman silhouettes. After meditation I always select a card near me and I just kept turning up the card of the Lovers.
As lovers we go on to love again we pull away at those fragile layers of our hearts to expose a new heart un-scared by the past. We have wrapped ourselves in the Rainbow Promise, that although there may be storms in life our love will never be washed away as long as we trust and remain strong in our beliefs. We are held within the hands of the Goddess who wants us to love again.
Last but not least are the warmth and comfort, a gift from the heavens, as I walked the beach walk on my rounds at work I lingered in the night breezes from the beach. It was a beautiful night. I took a moment to look up at an awesome blue velvet sky dome dazzling with diamonds. Just over my head came fragments from a meteor shower burning a golden trail in the night sky. I knew that I was so connected, to more of the universe, greater than the illusion that our lives lead us to accept!
When I took a friend to the airport the next morning, in the midst of a glorious sunrise I saw a rainbow. It made me feel the confirmation that I was doing what I was supposed to be doing. It made me realize how very fortunate I am to be where I am at this moment in time!
I have heard it mildly put that life is a performance without a rehearsal. It is truly about spontaneity Being in the now of the moment.
My humanness makes that a very difficult concept to live with at times. I am only learning to appreciate that reality of now. Sometimes I might find myself focusing on the past, which will never return, or stewing about the future, that isn't here yet! Through my meditations, I have grown.
My journey through Psyche has been tranquilly enlightening. There were no signs or symbols crashing through my focus. No mind chatter just pure emotion. Sometimes the emotions are unexplainable tears. Not sorrowful but just as though someone turned on a tap and I had no control over the flow! I tried to figure out where it was that it was coming from and my only explanation can be connective tissues! It is a time when my soul is finally connected by some small link to a greater power than my human self knows. It is like a cleansing, healing, and a reunion to something my conscious mind forgot. It has given me a message that I needed and that is that in the quieting of my mind, letting go of my over determined will that the trusting. Hands of a Higher Power that will carry me through.
Yet, there is still reflection to that past that has brought me through and has molded me to be who I am today. It is calm. I feel no battles with the past, no concerns of that which has gone by, only gratitude, for it all, no matter how perplexing it might have been. It was life's lesson in a raw uncontrollable form without any given direction. With enough bumps and jolts, wiggles and turns, I have somehow managed to land in a space that feels like it was here all along, just waiting for me, like a comfortable warm bed at the end of tiresome journey. And to think I just kept kicking and screaming against it to the tune of doing it my way! As I have said before I am a slow learner!
About 30 years ago in my profound Hippie Days I wrote this in a journal:
If I could only find a way to get inside my mind,
To find the me that really wants to be,
Instead of the person that others see.
There is so much to explore
Each step in life can open another door
My mind is a place with vast cavities untouched by life's everyday occurrence
And yet it is the total reference
For in it lies the future and the past
The thoughts of life before and to its last
And even though I have been there once or twice
The puzzle remains of how to get inside my mind
These straggled lines reminded me of the search that has always been within my soul. The silence of meditation has brought another piece to the greater Puzzle. So much to see, so much to uncover....But, there is always tomorrow when it gets here!
