I Hear You

Thought last week was going to be my week to recover from the summer. But, um, well, you know what they say about making God laugh, tell him/her your plans. Last week was an ass kicker on every level, we'll just leave it at that. And that's exactly what I'm trying to do, leave it at that. Leave it.

It was an ass kicker, but now it's a new week and the reconnoitering resumes. Got kids off to school, walked with Kathleen and Flicka and decided before I attacked the day in the usual Carrie fashion (read: frenetically) I would sit down with Mary in my newly moved meditation station and see what she had to say for me today.

Felt the need to dust off (literally) the Angel Blessings Cards as well as the The Instant Tarot Reader.

Meet Chamuel ("he who seeks God") the angel of Adoration. I read along and get to this, "Your body is a temple of God and you deserve to be fed by the energy of unconditional love. Do you put yourself last, devoting all your time to others, with little left for yourself? Do you feel unworthy of such loving adoration?"

Pretty much.

Then later it goes on to say, "Adore yourself. Love and appreciate who you are. Begin by doing one thing each day what expresses self love, then increase to four! Ask to be swept away in the rapture of adoration."

I nod in agreement, sounds good, yes, indeed I put myself last and could do with some adoration. I move on to the Tarot cards and get:

"You need to stop working so hard. If you cannot stop, then conserve your energy and pace yourself. When you are over-committed everything becomes a strain. Delay making decisions if exhaustion prevents good judgment."

Just decided my biggest decisions today will be whether or not I shower, and if so, when.

I love and ADORE you, so take that! (I know it is hard to take, but just sit with it... ;)

I hope you sat on your ass all day, and loved every minute.

YAY! Glad you got bonked on the head with it. Hope your day was luxuriously yours.

Did you? When?

I hear you too. That Instant Tarot Reader always gets it right. Scary sometimes.
Love you.

No accidents.

Finding the truth and realness in ourselves and embracing it, no matter what, that makes a difference.

Great, great post.

I sent you some Mary love over at my blog.

Love overflowing from a full cup is so much richer than love scraped from the bottom of an empty one. May this time of stillness help your cup to overflow again.

don't you love when the universe is in alignment and all we have to do is get in that line to and sit still?
