October 27: When it’s slightly dark and the cold air is hazy and foggy you can get lost easily when you are walking in nature. How do I find my way home?
|Oracle of Shadows and Light|
The card that will be guiding me home is Sea Storm from the Oracle of Shadows and Light. The subtext is: Calm amidst chaos. It seems my inner lake (yesterday’s post) isn't always that calm. This is a stormy weather with lightning and high waves. It is easy to panic, to be afraid and feel lost. There is no lighthouse in the distance You’re all alone. But as I've said yesterday, that should be enough. If you have been to your inner lake often enough you know the feeling you have to regain. And through that feeling you can reach you inner wisdom. That’s your guide out of this chaos. Your inner calm, your intuition knows what to do, what to say, how to act, to guide you home and to calm down the wild raging sea. My true home is my inner source of wisdom where anything is possible, where magic is real and mermaids guide me home. This is where I can be myself at all times. So although the outer reality looks chaotic and wild and scary and your feelings are running wild, the best thing you can do is dive deeper and deeper to the bottom of the sea, the basis of you existence. That’s where you’ll find peace and quiet. Just as the bottom of the lake is as calm as it surface, this rough sea has a calm undercurrent too.
Sea Storm is one of my favorite cards from this the deck. I love the beautiful blues and the contrast between the tranquility of the mermaid and the emotional wild waves around her.
Often my Sunday mornings are like emotional tidal waves. So I am grateful for this reminder to my own inner calm.
