Breathing Fire! (Contest)
Sunday, May 29th, 2022

UPDATE: The winner is…Bernadette!

If you’ve read my blog for long, you know I collect things. My daughter calls it hoarding, but she can’t be too harsh with me because all I have to do is mention the word “Pyrex” and she shuts right up. (She is obsessed! She even bought an entire display cabinet to hold her overflowing collection of vintage bowls!)

Anyways, I have a collection of tarot/divination/meditation cards, plus bags of Norse rune stones, etc. Sometimes, at night, when I’m winding down and need to get my mind to quiet, I pull out a deck and read my cards.

Well, I have this very pretty, modern box of “Goddess Guidance Oracle Cards.” Each goddess has a sentiment written on it. This morning when I looked at the long To Do list I wrote for myself last night, I thought, I need “goddess” help, so I pulled a random card…

Nice! Sekmet is very cool! She was a lion-headed goddess, daughter of Ra, and she was the goddess Pharoah wanted with him when he went to war. She breathed fire, and the hot desert winds were her breath… I could use some of Sekmet’s fire and lion’s strength today. I’ll be ferocious like her! My To Do list doesn’t stand a chance against my fiery purpose!!!

Okay. So, anyway…

Lots to do. I’m behind on so many things, and June snuck up on me! May was COVID month, but June will be DIG MYSELF OUT OF THE CRATER month!

So, a question! Answer for a chance to win a download of your choice of a book from my vast backlist. Do you own any tarot or meditation cards? Does some other object serve the same purpose for you (Bible, bones, rosary beads, etc.)?

    I didn’t know about these cards & could use some. Pretty & fun.
    I have downloaded many phrases for positive thinking & need more after being so sad during Covid separation.

    You must be channeling me. This is something I have wanted to explore but did not know where to start. Is the set you used today a good place to start? Or where would you send a beginner?

    no tarot or meditation cards… to quiet my mind, I watch the fish in my tanks and listen to soothing music.

    I own several decks :). I am working on building my intuitive reading with them, and will read first, second guess, then look up meanings! Normally, it all works out, regardless! Rose oracle, Rumi oracle, Victorian Fairie tarot, Celtic Tarot, Gilded tarot, Animal totem Tarot, and Wisdom of the Spirits Oracle! Yay! Cards!

    I have a basic deck and an angel deck of Tarot cards. Haven’t learned how the read either one but they are pretty and some day . . . In the meantime, I also have and Angel “inspiration a day” book. It is advised that when one needs Angel advice to simply open the book to a random page. That is what one needs to know at the time. I have found it works well that way.

    I use to have a set or two around but don’t any more…… I don’t really have a strategy for calming my mind at the moment, that’s probably part of the reason I suffer from anxiety and sleep issues so much

    No, I don’t have a set of cards but I do daily gratitude and positive self-affirmations that really help me out.

    No tarot or meditation cards. When I need to have a few minutes I just rock in my rocker/recliner or the one on my back porch…if it’s nice enough to sit there. I close my eyes & just take in the quiet.

    Bernadette, I’d recommend a traditional tarot set to start with—something like this:
