|Fairy Lights Tarot by Lucia Mattioli|
I love my tarot cards, each and every one. Today I asked my deck to show me the card for this post as I was a bit lost on what to write (this is what happens when you take time away, it's difficult to get back into your stride).
Well my beloved and slightly bedraggled Fairy Lights Tarot was up for the quest. It gave my the 6 of Wands.
Wow, it really knew what it wanted me to blog about, and I say thank you to it.
I've been away from my blog for a while as I explained in my previous post, lost in books. I just needed to get some stillness in my life, as things were starting to snowball a bit with family and health. I felt I was having to be in two places at once and between family commitments and tarot reading commitments I was finding my time was very much spoken for.
Modern living (not that I'm complaining) seems so good at finding ways to take that precious spare time and just zap it. It starts with the checking of emails, then a quick look at my favourite websites. Before you know it I've been lost in cyber world for over an hour.
T.V has the same effect. Stopping us in our tracks and numbing the tick of the clock. Thus I decided, I needed to reclaim my precious time. I no longer have a television. I have written out a list of books that I have been wanting to read and made a specific order in which I am going to read them.
The biggest change though is that I am actively meditating twice every day, something that 'I didn't have time for' before. My meditations were always crammed in to a spare 10 minutes whenever I could remember, and were never fulfilling.
So the last month has been a bit of a retreat for me and the 6 of Wands here shows a woman, so still that she has taken root to the earth, she is connected and growing as part of it. As she is transforming, becoming one with everything around her, all other things continue to go about their business. She stands, present in the moment, yet still in her self.
This is what the last month has been for me. removing myself from the stuff that has been eating away my time, the stuff that in the true reality if things is not what is truly important. It will pass, it will be gone from existence yet what remains is the now. The calm peaceful stillness of now. And I am enjoying life so much more.
