My morning ritual was interrupted this morning in a good way, hubby decided to take the day off! I am a bit behind but I love that we are all home together.
I have also had some technical difficulties today, my own and from websites being down. Just going with the flow….
That is also one of the messages from my reading this morning, which were:
Go with the flow, let the wind blow, adjust your sails, get ready to go!
The practical and mundane are steps to the goal, part of the cycle of creation You reap what you sow.
Create, Create, Create! Let the Divine inspiration flow.
The path of love is the way to go!
I wasn’t really feeling it today, pretty much in a blah mood.
I didn’t want to paint or draw cards, but I did.
My Cards were darker today than they have been.
The message I took is focus, focus, focus.
Still trying to control the paint. It’s not as easy as those videos make it look.
Practice and Patience. Enjoy the process of learning, growing, stretching my boundaries.
One lesson I did take away is that you can’t take it back….
Working with black, I wanted to practice tones, dark to light. Fill your brush with paint and slowly take paint off to change the darkness….works with those little squares, lol.
In painting the mandala I found that painting dark to light really didn’t work….I should’ve built up from light to dark, because you cannot take back too much dark! You just can’t take it back to the white paper, our the lightest shade.
Same goes for life. you really can’t take things back. You can be forgiven, but it’s never back to the blank/white paper again.
So be careful with what you do and say. Practice the pause. Act with intention, not re-act out of fear.
You can’t take back words you’ve already said. Or the tears already shed. Minor things will be forgotten, but the cruelest words are never forgotten.I didn’t know who to attribute this to, but if you do, let me know.
Things to take away from the tarot reading, the message from the Universe:
A seed takes root, stay grounded
Overflow with positivity, have an open joyful heart.
Do not take people/situations for granted. Gratitude.
I am learning a bit more on watercolor mixing, thank you internet!
I used colors from a new (cheap) watercolor set. not impressed! It was goopy even when water was added.
I think my friend had something when she mentioned nicer paints.
My tarot reading reminds me:
turn inward, fine peace and understanding in silence, in meditation.
look for the patterns in life, break the patterns of things that are not serving you, that come from outside self.
not to be so ridged, set in the view of B&W.
that being trapped in limited beliefs, constricts the life energy flow.
walk on, walk on
keep moving, keep moving
go on, go on
November 13, Morning Mood Mandala and tarot reading.
I have to admit that I am not feeling it today. Nothing wanted to come from the paint brush.
The colors and their mixing reminded me of ketchup and mustard.
Still stumbling through paint mixing….just not getting the hang of it yet.
I am going to try to paint my own color wheel later. It was suggested that maybe I should consider different/better paints. What are your favorites?
I decide to use my Osho Zen tarot deck this morning. It is one of my first decks and then I didn’t feel much of a connection to it.
This morning’s reading may bring this deck out more often. That’s the thing about growth, it brings things that may not have been suited for you before back to you.
The take away from today’s reading:
Take a breath, take it easy.
This moment is a gift for the hard work you have done.
Love based in freedom, not expectation or need
Stop fighting, forgive yourself, love IS available, you ARE worth it.
I’m learning to watercolor.
I am trying hard to learn how to mix these darn things! ha!
Not so easy, i’ve tried a few times this morning.
I would like to watch some one else handle their color and palette and mixing and such.
If you know of some good videos of this please let me know.
Today’s reading is from Creatrix, Anything is Possible Activation Cards by Melissa Harris. (Not an affiliate, just thought i’d out the link here for you)
When the wave comes, dive deep. one of my favorite analogies.
Have you ever stood in the Big Lake (or Ocean) and tried to stop the waves?…..Impossible.
Have you ever been hit by a wave when you didn’t expect it?…..That wave moves you, knocks you around.
These waves are like the emotions we feel, triggers we need to face.
I have learned that it is when I dive into the wave, when I go through it that I end up on the other side of that wave/trigger.
It is when I dive deep into my emotion/trigger/issue, when I work with the energies that I am able to come out on the other side of it, landing on my feet.
All within my power, all within my control.
I have to do some inner work.
I have to stand in my power.
I have to release to expand.
When the wave comes, dive deep.
Today’s Mood Mandala…..thinking i am missing the greenery now that the snow is here.
I am also loosely following Everyday Watercolor by Jenna Rainey.
The painting today is also a practice/play with color tone and saturation control.
Learn a lot about water control in this morning mandala.
My tarot reading today i feel had to do with green also., to leave my head space and go with my heart, green is also the heart chakra color, my favorite color.
I think that when you are in your heart space you are also going with the flow more, which was also an important aspect to today’s reading.
The messages from the reading today are:
Claim it! Speak it! Be it!
Release and Expand. Rise!
Mistakes are OK.
Go with the Flow!
