7/21/12-7/22/12—Making the Right Choice

Weekend Reading: 22/Rain, 24/Sunset and 32/Snow from the Transparent Oracle by Emily Carding. Read individually, these cards speak of cleansing and renewal, closure and peace, and purity and silence—all good things to take into your weekend. But if you examine the three cards placed on top of one another (as you can only do with Emily's transparent cards), you may notice all three forms of water are depicted...solid, in form of snow; liquid, in the form of droplets; and gas, in the form of the steamy rays of the sun. We, too, have a trinity of forms—body, mind/ego and spirit/soul. Water doesn't have a choice in the form it takes. Surrounding conditions of temperature dictate the form it assumes. But we do have a choice in how we respond to surrounding conditions. We can respond physically. We can respond with our intellect or ego self. Or we can respond with our spirit/soul self. Remember this weekend that, no matter what happens outside you, you have a choice. You are in control of how you respond. So consider responding in the way that brings more love, joy and self respect into your life.


  1. Very appropriate for my week. My response to what happened on Tuesday set the tone for the rest of the week and not in a good way. I did have a choice but forgot. I know these things but forgot. Am working on it. Thanks for reminding me.

  2. Thanks for that, Carol. That's a great example of how reacting out of ego or impulse can be a lose/lose. I had a day like that last week, where I just indulged my need to be pissy and I ended up having to apologize to a couple of people. And I didn't even have good reason to get angry. Then I felt bad for not taking a beat and choosing a higher road. We all need reminders now and then. But the good thing is that being aware that you do have a choice is, by itself, a move in the right direction. :)
