An interesting day

Today was The day. I had my second surgery in two weeks. First came dental surgery and I survived with the help of lots of ibuprofen. 

Today I had the cysts removed from my left eye. I look like I’ve been a very bad fight. I have a black eye and my upper and lower eyelids are swollen bloody messes. It’s going to be fun at work tomorrow!

Anyway, it mostly just stings and is a bit blurry at the moment. Hopefully, I can sleep comfortably tonight.

But the good news I survived and I’m fine.

An Open Letter to Sunnie Kahle (and Christian tomboys everywhere)

Emily C. Heath

Dear Sunnie,

You don’t know me, but this morning I read an article about you. (You can read it here: http://www.abc27.com/story/25061872/little-girl-taken-out-of-christian-school-after-told-shes-too-much-like-a-boy  ) Ever since then you keep crossing my mind. As I went around town today in my jeans and button-down shirt and sweater, I thought about you. As I came home from the gym tonight, I prayed for you. And all the while, I wished I could write you a letter…the kind of letter I wish someone had written to me.

I don’t know how to get one to you, though. I thought about trying to send it to your grandparents for them to read to you, but I’m not sure if it would make it there. So instead I’m writing this and posting it on my blog. Maybe somehow these words will find their way to your…

Reflection

Patience and prudence are the keywords here, although trust plays a large part in the process of crossing to the island where insights into your own unconscious workings will be revealed.

This process differs from The Hermit’s journey in the fact that The Hermit makes a conscious decision to withdraw and contemplate the universe but with Reflection a surrender of will is required.

Insights may come from dreams and meditations, but now is not the time to force the pace or drive on with a plan or desire until you have heard what your soul has to say about it and your bruised and wounded spirit has been healed.

Be patient. Let the journey commence and awaken afresh and full of energy ready to deal with the world and the challenges it raises.

When the foundation of one’s life seems to have collapsed beneath you, you can seek sanctuary in Reflection from the emotional intensity of The Blasted Oak. Reflection is concerned with sacred mysteries…

In a reading this card indicates profound healing, a period of introspection, healing, immersion in myths and visions, stellar lore, conception, learning about yourself.
