Transitioning out of hibernation…

The joke here is that as I begin to move from doing the inner alchemy and healing work of spirit to the outer alchemy which includes the presentation and incorporation of that healing that I am coming out of hibernation. I will be more active and engaging but it goes beyond this, the trick is to hold onto the lessons and healing that I have done in the last phase of My Alchemy(TM) while continuing to heal and grow in a way that is visible this time…

During this first week of transition, I have swapped my crystals out after they charged up while on my altar over the Ostara weekend and done my first throw with them. I have shuffled my “monthly” card and will be using this as my guide during the shift. My card for this is the Sage. The Sage appears as a reminder that we have gained knowledge and wisdom during our turn inward over the last seasons (Mabon to Ostara) and now we engage in those lessons and share them with others. This card is the gateway towards an outward expression of this path I am walking on. It is with the guidance of the Sage, I will learn to present all I have learned and guide others in this path soon enough.

The weekly card for me is the Six of Water. As I move from inner alchemy to outer alchemy, remember that above all I must be myself and find an anchor in that. The past has helped shape me, the lessons guided me through healing and now I can release the hold the past held on my spirit and move forward. Compassion, forgiveness, and healing are keywords for this card and I will pull all those elements forward with me. I will seek for every interaction to be filled with compassion and send hope that it continues from me to others.

When growth meets an obstacle

This morning when I pulled my cards for a daily reading I was both surprised and not by the message received. As I mentioned in my last post, my focus has been shifting and the healing continues in my life and my path grows. I previously shared my weekly and monthly cards from Dreams of Gaia. During the week I also pull cards daily in my Chrysalis Tarot (shuffled on the first of every month for a month-long focus) and then my Beyond Lemuria Oracle which gets shuffled every two weeks with the New and Full moons. This method while non-traditional works very well for me and it really helps.

Four of Stones, Chrysalis Tarot. Resing in the lid of a handmade Tarot Box

Today, I pulled the Four of Stones from Chrysalis Tarot. This card is a MESSAGE. *laugh* This card is coming to me today to tell me that there is something blocking my path forward. This beautiful bejeweled chest is distracting and holds within it material possessions treasured and the whispers of those that are sought. If I am to move forward in my path and achieve my dreams, I must move the chest aside. My focus has been split between squirreling away treasures and growth. Treasures are bits and pieces of my path and life that aid but sometimes prove to be distractions. This card tells me to be more aware of the “ooh shiny” distraction of acquiring wealth or other material things that could hamper the growth process with all the sparkling that they do.

This is a good reminder that as I move from working within to out I will need to adjust my mindset and “move the chest” obstructing my path forward. The time to shift these gears is upon me and I shall move forward with a little effort to remove blocks….

Threw the box away…

King of Earth Dreams of Gaia Tarot Card and Crystals

The King of Earth tarot card from the Dreams of Gaia Tarot deck with a raw piece of rainbow obsidian, Tibetan quartz, amethyst, and a smoky amethyst scepter.

Sometimes you have to step outside the box to really see yourself grow and your vibration to be elevated. I decided to throw the box away…for the last five months, I have been creating a new process that utilizes crystals, astrology, tarot, and witchcraft to bring my journey and path to greater harmony. This is something that I have really enjoyed creating and while I am still working out how to get it out there, I continue to use it and grow myself…

The process I’ve created works. In the time I’ve been developing and testing it with a friend I have seen incredible personal growth and have slowly started to lift myself out of the constant hamster wheel of anxiety. Oh, it still happens but I am able to sit and work with it most of the time and come out on the other side of it a little more peaceful.

My weekly card this week is the King of Earth…I’m digging his message to me…

This is a success story. Right now it is not the time to make changes but to sit and honor your process. Do the research, look at the long-range with what you will need to become successful in your pursuits. Do not forget to stop and enjoy the journey along the way and perhaps bring that journey into the process for greater understanding. It is through understanding and patience that we are able to make the long race successful.
