Sometimes we see a great message but don’t want to see it just yet. In the midst of the chaotic happenings of March (not to mention the eclipse/equinox period we had) I felt a little run down and had a few spots of insomnia. I chalked it up to a lot of energy and transformation happening I’m fine… it’s just a little head-cold. In fact, I was so cocky with how I usually breeze through illnesses and bounce back fast I was even telling a friend, “yeah this is the most PLEASANTLY MILD little head-cold ever!” heck, I even thought I was listening to my inner guidance and seeing wisdom (YOU NEED EXTRA REST. GET SOME REST, LOTS OF STUFF GOING ON, GET SOME BALANCE!) and was on an action plan to sleep better and was taking Umcka cold care tablets dutifully and those always kept roving germs at bay. I felt fantastic for days at a time! Woo! Well, unfortunately, I “hey everything SEEMS ok… I’ll just pile on a few more items on the plate –I’m doing so good… how bad could a little insomnia be?” and that pleasantly-mild-germ bug dropped the sheeps’ clothing as cold and revealed its wolfish flu fangs a few days later during vacation with an inflamed eye and ear on top of it all! For days I was involuntarily swaddled in feverish, aching, nauseated couch confinement. (No blog last week either!) — Still feeling cruddy and not up to much but with a renewed sense of “see!” lol
This week we have another nudgier nudge along themes we’ve seen over the past couple of weeks. It’s ok to SEE – it really is! Seeing is there to help us. Not be a pain in the butt. (Not just in terms of silly things like colds or flu but also important things too!) The fairy Seeresss in this hilarious card is wild about her swirling crystal ball, bows of honeysuckle (said to inspire psychic awareness) hang around her head and she perches on a fantastic mushroom to scry the messages and important awareness within with total fearlessness. (Isn’t she a hoot?)
Luckily, we don’t really need a crystal ball this week. This week it’s all about SEEING what we can do (or should do) and feeling a little more attuned to the messages we’re receiving from within and without. Just like before; there’s really an emphasis on trusting INNER wisdom. It’s fine and good to get messages from the pennies on the street, feathers in the air or guidance of sage friends or specialists… but the bulk of the “seeing” is coming from your power to pay attention to voice you’re already hearing within. Alongside those people or cards giving guidance …. your own internal messenger is speaking up too. You will flip the card the points to what you felt inside, a friend will reinforce something you yourself already knew…. or maybe your own inner “nudge” will nudge you more firmly.
This card says trust what you know. The LWB says “don’t second guess yourself. Your inner knowing gives wise guidance. Don’t limit yourself to only the logical and earthly, you may miss an opportunity to grow in wisdom and understanding.” That means even if you think you are fine and your nasal passages are feeling fantastic, yet that little voice is about cocooning – then listen up. Let yourself SEE this week…. from the crystal ball of your true heart, to the wonderful world around you which is always a perfect mirror, a wonderful orb of possibility if we want to see (REALLY SEE) what is being mirrored back to us.
Seeing into this shiny surface can give us ideas of what we can do next, what to change, what to rest, what to take hold of, what to let go of, what to surrender, what to gas up. Plus – another wonderful bonus about “seeing” is that there are often wonderful sights to behold. New glimpses of vistas we thought we forgot about a couple months ago or which used to cause grief can now foster a good look at the situation without denial or fear.
