“If you try anything, if you try to lose weight, or to improve yourself, or to love, or to make the world a better place, you have already achieved something wonderful, before you even begin. Forget failure. If things don’t work out the way you want, hold your head up high and be proud. And try again. And again. And again!”
~ Sarah Dessen
Today we are exploring health. This will help you to focus on the major challenges or issues around your health, or give you confirmation that you are heading in the right direction.
Here’s what you need to do:
Take your crystal, and complete this short guided meditation:
Hold your stone in your cupped hands, close your eyes, and slow your breathing. Bring white light into your body until you feel peaceful and calm. Then bring white light into the crystal too. Allow yourself to connect to the stone. You may feel it tingle, or visualise a colour in your mind’s eye. When you are ready, open your eyes. Keep your stone near you, and hold it when you write.
Now shuffle your cards, while silently asking the question to yourself ‘What do I most need to know about my health right now?’
When you have shuffled the cards and they feel ‘done’, select one card using the method that feels right for you.
Place the card face up in front of you.
Clear your mind by closing your eyes and taking one deep breath in and then out. Open your eyes again. Take a minute and look at the picture.
What stands out for you today? Is it an image or a colour? Is it a number or a word? What are your first impressions? What thoughts come into your mind?
Write these down in your journal.
Now let’s go a little deeper. What feelings or words does this card evoke in your mind when you think about the card and its images in relation to the question ‘What do I most need to know about my health right now?’ Take five minutes and just write some stream-of-consciousness thoughts down. Don’t censor or judge them. Trust the process. Draw a second card for clarification if you need to.
Finally, read back over what you have written.
Well done, you’re on your way to creating a real understanding of who you are, where you are, and where to from here. See you tomorrow!
