It’s getting SO warm out earlier and earlier. Even a simple sitting meditation is a little too how. I sat for 6 minutes today with a breathing meditation. I did a 10 minute meditation yesterday but my mind was cantering about like a wild horse. I trimmed down the time a little and it was much better.
I drew the 3 of cups today as my Omen. This card depicts 3 men happily joined in a toast. It’s all about joy in friendship/connection. To cerebrate our gifts and love, something I tend not to do as often as I’d like. It made me think of hospitality, one of the 9 virtues I am to ponder on with this path.
When you are generous and welcoming to the good things( friends, family, experiences) in life you receive much more than what’s on the surface. A deepening of spirit with whatever you celebrate. This card can also signify receiving help, gifts, or the end of a difficult or exhausting period in your life. It can also mean success in the arts which I hope means the Healing arts. My intended career as a Massage Therapist has understandably been on my mind a lot lately.
When I think of Hospitality, I think of my Grandparents. They raised 12 children and half of Ojai, California at their table- it seemed. They were not incredibly well off but they were hard workers and expected the same from others. No one was ever turned away for Sunday dinner. They served 3 humanitarian missions for their church and always made every one of their 50 something grandchildren feel like they were the only one. They tended and cultivated the hearts of everyone around them, as they did their land and home-with careful dedication. Not to say there were not stressful points withing the family or that they didn’t make mistakes. I believe they were generous and welcoming folks for the joy of it. For the connection. For love.
