Mystical Cat’s Tarot ~ XIV Grace ~ May 16, 2015


Merry Meet!

The Universe sure took a while to get me the right card for today lol. Here it is… (reversed for us today.)

XIV ~ Grace

XIV Grace

Cats move with such grace and delicacy that it may seem effortless, but it takes both poise and the willingness to look foolish if we fall or falter. This blending of control and freedom is what gives us balance. Our dignity comes from inner grace as well as outer. True grace means adapting to your circumstances, allowing the waves to break harmlessly around you, without defensiveness. When you open yourself to vulnerability, you will rise from any challenge with greater wisdom. Cats move with perfect composure between worlds, always guided by our own serene spirit.

The Cat’s Advice:

Find that place of inner harmony that allows you to move through any challenge with poise and grace. If you find yourself knocked off-balance, assess what is needed to steady yourself again. Your ability to adapt to changing circumstances will make you sure-footed even in the most tempestuous of times. Seek tranquility.

If the card is reversed:

The situation may be too overwhelming to find your equilibrium right now. Have compassion for your limitations; sometimes things are just out of balance and upsetting. Take extra care of your health to manage your stress, and be sure to honor body, mind, and spirit throughout this challenging time.

Damn! So spot on! Overwhelming is not the word! It’s way past overwhelming and we are just teetering on the edges here. Bouncing through each other sparking random memories, a random smell, thought, dream, even taste. All of a sudden seeing my surroundings with “new” eyes realizing that some of us never have and never will get to enjoy our home… unless it happens within the next few weeks. lol Anyway, we need to gain some balance and I believe that there are a couple of things that will help that… the Qigong Healing session tonight and the Sprint Allstar Race! So check those links out, the Qigong is quite interesting, I have participated every time I saw him post the event. Never failed to make a difference of some sort! I look forward to this one tonight.

Thanks for taking time to sit and chat a while… even though I did all the talking lol.

Blessed Be~

What I learned In IOP ~ Day 17 ~ Inspiration


Merry Meet!

Day 17 was actually my last day in IOP, I am starting the morning DBT track on Tuesday. That happened quicker than I thought it would. But going back from the last IOP post, Ch-ch-ch-changes to inspiration… I find that interesting with the situation we are in. (The having to be out of our home by June 30) Changes are definitely in the wind and I guess these readings we get in our groups can really be on target. Here is one from last week.

I have found that sitting in a place where you have never sat before can be inspiring. ~ Dodie Smith

Repeatedly, today and every day, we will be in new situations, new settings with old friends, and old settings and situations with new friends. Each instance is fresh, unlike all the times before. And inspiration can accompany each moment, if we but recognize how special it is.
“We will never pass this way again,” so the song says, which heightens the meaning of each encounter, every experience. Acknowledging that something can be gained each step along the way invites inspiration.
Inspiration moves us to new heights. We will be called to step beyond our present boundaries. Maybe today. Whenever the inspiration catches our attention, we can trust its invitation; we are ready for the challenge it offers. We need not let our narrow, personal expectations of an experience, a new situation perhaps, prevent us from being open to all the dynamic possibilities it offers.

I must be willing to let my whole self be moved, inspired. I must be willing to let each moment I experience be the only moment getting my attention.

I really do find it inspiring that this change coming up in my life can be a good thing. I will most definitely be getting called to step out of my comfort zone. What else can you call being evicted from your home of 14 years? Stepping out of my comfort zone is what. I will take the advice about being open to all the dynamic possibilities and not staying stuck in expectations based on past experiences. This is a new path we are on and I choose to look at it as a beautiful adventure! A leap of faith if you will.
