Light a candle, meditate.... time for a blogger healing

I want to take this time to send some positive energy and healing to all my friends in bloggerland. Life is a strange journey, and we all have crossed paths for a reason. Whatever spiritual belief system you hold, its important to have faith and have a sense for healing.

Meditative Healing
I’m going to share with you all one of my favorite meditations.
1. ground you body. Do this by planting your feet flat on the ground, and feeling your connection to the earth.
2. Take deep healing breaths
3. Visualize a white light surrounding your body clockwise, protecting you from harm, and surrounding you with love.
4. Let this white light penetrate your body, and go up through all your chakras and out through the top of your head. Releasing any negative energy and filling your body, heart and soul with positive white light.

Here are some inspirational quotes, from some great minds.

You gain strength, courage, and confidence by each experience in which you really stop to look fear in the face. You are able to say to yourself, "I have lived through this horror. I can take the next thing that comes along." - Eleanor Roosevelt
The weak can never forgive. Forgiveness is the attribute of the strong.
Mahatma Gandhi

Reality is merely an illusion, albeit a very persistent one.
Albert Einstein
Courage is resistance to fear, mastery of fear, not absence of fear.
Mark Twain

Knowing others is intelligence; knowing yourself is true wisdom. Mastering others is strength; mastering yourself is true power.
Lao Tzu

Happiness is when what you think, what you say, and what you do are in harmony.
Mahatma Gandhi

In the End, we will remember not the words of our enemies, but the silence of our friends.
Martin Luther King
 My dad always used to say, "If you're falling off a cliff, you may as well try to fly. You have nothing to lose."
Captain John Sheridan, Babylon 5
I never came upon any of my discoveries through the process of rational thinking.
Albert Einstein

The Force both obeys and commands. Yoda, Star Wars
Please accept my resignation. I don't care to belong to any club that will have me as a member.
Groucho Marx

Tarot Healing
I myself believe in the power of tarot. I have a few tarot decks, from the traditional Rider series, to my favorite, "the Faires and Oracles" deck illustrated by Brian Froud.
Here is a description:

The Faeries' Oracle is a lovely, well put together book; whether it is a good tool for predicting the future, giving one insight into oneself, or aiding in decision-making must be determined by each individual. The deck consists of sixty-five cards plus a blank card to draw in one's own faery mentor. This is intended to "personalize and attune" the cards to one's particular "energy".

Im going to take out my tarot deck, meditate on the blogger family, and see what card comes up.

The Glanconer
Illusion. Delusion. Lust. Projection. Clear Sight
Have you ever noticed that when we really, really want someone or something, we tend to see it without clarity? The object of our lust looks flawless and glamorous, which should tell us something right away. But, usually, it doesn’t.
He says his name is Smooth Harry, but that may be a little illusion of his own. The Glanconer doesn’t change his shape to temp us with our own mental confusions and paradoxes. He simply wear a mirror in which we see our desires temptingly displayed. He does not try to fool us, he simply allows us to fool ourselves. Well, he may try a little, just to make the test look difficult. After all, we can be more proud of passing a difficult test than an easy one, cant we?
Smooth Harry also appeals to our vanity – and the more we have of it, the easier his work is. A little flattery and we’ll believe whatever he wants us to swallow – especially since it is just what we want to swallow anyway. Of all the faery challengers, Smooth Harry is the most likely to be sly. He practices a sort of emotional judo where he lets our own desires lead us into a fall. As we rush headlong toward our vision of perfection, he need only step to one side as we cast ourselves at him – and we go down. Not fun, but perhaps we might just learn something from it.

It is not good to make decisions when blinded by lust. Whether it is lust for a person, a thing, or an idea, we need to pause and take our time before making actual commitments. We need to read the fine point, check the foundations, get a mechanic to test the so-beautiful second hand car. If we are considering buying something, we can refuse to let ourselves be rushed into it and take time to make sure it is really what we think it is. If we are considering making a commitment to other people, we need to take our time and really get to know them better. The other lesson in seeing the truth behind a beglamoured surface, though in this case it is we who have cast the glamour.

Take that what you want to. I think I know what it means for me.
Now I’m going to meditate on my Rider deck and pull a card.

Queen of Cups (Reversed)
Beautiful, fair, dreamy – as one who sees vision in a cup.
The accounts vary, good woman, otherwise distinguished woman but not one to be trusted, perverse woman, vice dishonor, depravity.

Eeks don’t like the sound of that one, but the cards don’t lie… this is what I got.

Interesting tarot facts
The Tarot (or Tarot Card Deck) consists of 78 cards, which have been used for fortune telling for centuries. There is much controversy as to the official history of the tarot. Some say a medieval version of the cards dates back to the early 1400s. Because of the Italian-looking imagery found in the cards, some say they have an Italian origin. Others say the cards came from China or Egypt. And of course the Gypsies, long associated with the art of fortune telling, are said to have had a hand in the creation, if not the popularity of the cards. The mystery is further stirred when the correspondence of the cards with Cabbalistic or Kabalistic philosophy is considered. Although agreement of the history and origin of the cards is not to be found, it can be agreed that the tarot is a very popular mysterious oracle.

Aleister Crowley, too, founded his own occult school, the Ordo Templi Orientis, which had to do, among other things, sex magic. Working with Freida Harris, he created the colorful Book of Thoth Tarot. He considered identifying with each card more important than trying to guess about origins.

The tarot deck is comprised of 78 cards: 22 major arcana and 56 minor arcana. The 22 major arcana cards are supposed to depict a journey through one's life, which originates with the Fool card and ends with a card called The World. Although mystics have called this the road through life, some clergy have said the cards were the road to hell and the devil. The Devil is a card in the major arcane, but it depicts enslavement, addiction and misdirection rather than Satan. Another widely misunderstood card is the famous Death card, which does not mean death of the physical body, but merely change and transformation of some kind. The fool card is the predecessor of the Joker cards we discard before shuffling most decks for a game. 

 The Magician
You are the Magician card. Magick is the use of the
will to effect change in reality. The will is
the ability to direct knowledge and experience
towards an end goal. The Magician is capable of
manipulating his environment because he knows
it so well. He effects the thoughts and
emotions of those around him. Therefore, the
Magician is often thought of as an artist,
writing or speaking in a way that strongly
influences others. The Magician understands how
to bring concepts into form and how to express
metaphysical concepts in a physical way. He is
seen with the symbols of each suit: a disk, a
cup, a sword and a wand. These symbols are each
a physical expression of a concept. They are
The Magician's tools. Following after The Fool,
The Magician acts as a messenger. His planet is
Mercury, who is Messenger of the Gods. He
brings The Fool into the new world that The
Fool seeks. The Magician represents the act of
creation. Because he can use his knowledge to
form something new, he seems to be able to make
a thing appear out of a void. Image from: L. S.

Had to post here... the othr comments keep going down, but most likely my intertnet connection....

I know, it's weird, huh? So many things we are so alike! But I'm definately not complaining.

There's a story about amethysts that it means to be not drunk.. not too many miles from being clear-headed and centered.

Off to bed I am now. May be going to see my Grandpa in the hospice he's in now tomorrow if Grandma isn't gone before I get up. He's still depressed and convinced he's going to die any minute, but from what everyone else has said, he's doing better.
