|The Singer of The Chalice|
As you perhaps have learned from my previous posts, lately I've been searching for ways to reconnect to the Divine. One way was the theme of this November month: “going with the flow” I've experienced this flow mainly in letting go of trying to control the lives of my family (pff… that’s a difficult one) and trying to find a flow in my creative efforts. I've noticed some of you are getting the jitters to start playing with pencils and paint too. This feels good.
Then I did clear my altar. To make more room for a new way of connecting to Divinity and to ponder what divinity means to me.
Yesterday I picked up my Faeries’Oracle and asked: “Who will guide me on this quest?” And what do you know, I pulled The singer of the Chalice. (will I find my Grail?) This card teaches me to be receptive and open. And willing to receive the energy of the One. And that is all there’s to it. Be open, meditate and ask. I am pulling a lot of Singers. At this moment I am glad because I find it easier to regard the divine as formless.
The book says: Trust. Joy. Patience. Creativity. Hope. Miracles.
“With The the help of the Singer of the Chalice and of the faeries, you, too, can get this one feeling that is all the good feelings in one--unconditional love, trust, hope, healing, patience, and so on. Open is open. Be open. If you don't know how, ask. It is right there”
|The Green Man|
For some more down the earth guidance I pulled a card from the Wildwood Tarot: The Green Man. Now that was a bummer. I’m not a fan of most of the Emperor cards I have. And this one didn't look very appealing either. He has that grim look on his face which makes him for me very unapproachable. I didn't feel open and intuitive at all seeing this card. I have to admit I even felt the urge to put it back into the pile and pick another one. But instead I just opened the book and started reading:
“The Green Man is generous in his bestowal of creative, fertile energy and he will move you to a new level of confident and assertive dynamism. This is a time for both giving and receiving the natural flow of life both inwardly and outwardly. Be prepared to find a new and thriving drive to begin projects, relationships and even new ways of living your life and fulfilling your world. Now is the time to experience being at the apex of the cycle of life. Enjoy it.”
So this card is not only all about receiving but also about doing and giving; not just letting my cauldron be filled, but actuality be energized to come into action and do something with it. I know I am more a passive receptive person. I think that’s why I don’t l like emperor cards. They want something of me that doesn't come natural.
So the first thing I am going to do is….. no, not coffee and chocolate this time J, but I am going outside to ride my bike to encounter the energy of this Green Man
