I felt my heart open.
This morning I wondered what to do with my time…
And then my heart opened.
It felt like love.
It felt like a waterfall.
It felt like the purpose that I’ve scrambled around to find.
It felt like my best friend.
Sometimes this feeling pops up from a spiritual practice, sometimes a downright childish behavior. I am not ashamed of what brings me joy.
I do not seek protection for there is no thing to fear.
I do not seek guidance for there is no way but the way.
I do not ask for love for I am love.
When I feel the need to reset I like to remember the four main elements as a way to check in with myself and find my center. This technique can be used by anyone at any time. Especially powerful times are during bleeding or a life shift.
Take four days and focus each day on the elements: one at a time. This practice uses the traditional four as the elements, feel free to incorporate other elements if you wish. Day one the focus is on fire, day two air, day three water, ending on day four with a focus on earth. Another option is to do one of each at any time for a quick balancing.
On each day begin in prayer focusing on the element of the day. Let everything you do drip with love. Choose which practices from the days element you wish you use.

It comes as no surprise that tonight I pulled card ten in the Angel tarot deck, representing ego and pointing us to Archangel Jophiel. I have been feeling stressed and worried the last couple days, wondering if my efforts are enough. I know that I am abundant and always taken care of but I still want to be sure I am doing all I can on my part. These worries mask the true situation at hand:: an emptiness that cannot be filled by possessions or material security but only by a fulfilled spiritual path. In saying no to the temptation to worry or fear, I ask Archangel Jophiel to help me to see myself for who I am. Receiving this encouragement from my angels and sitting in meditation I feel more aligned and thankful to know I am on a beautiful path. How does todays card speak to you?
