Daily Divination Cards - Monday 5th November 2012

Good morning!

I hope you had a good and restful weekend?

Ours was rather stressful, spending 4 hours in the Accident and Emergency waiting room with Dad on Saturday evening...

My Dad started having terrible pains in his neck in the middle of last week. It got worse and worse, and he was told by his doctor on Thursday that it was muscular, but we've all been so worried because he looked so ill, and has been in total agony. He hasnt been able to sleep - and he wasn't eating, or drinking...

Anyway, long story short, on Saturday afternoon he complained of pains in his arms and chest, he was slurring his speech, not making much sense, he was ashen, his lips looked blue and we feared he may be having a stroke, so called an ambulance.

Luckily he wasn't! After a quick assessment at the hospital, confirming that it wasn't a stroke, we had to wait 4 hours for him to be seen properly by a doctor (it was extremely busy in there)!

The doctor was lovely and gave Dad a thorough examination. His pains in his arms and chest - all stem from the severe muscles spasms in his neck (at the base of his skull) and the slurred speech, etc, was caused by the strong pain medication he'd been given. He's very pale because of being in such pain, lack of sleep etc...

The doctor was able to put our minds at rest (especially Dad's) that this is not a spinal problem and changed the medication, advising Dad that it will likely take at least a week before he sees any improvement. (Which we're pleased about as Dad was determined he'd be ok in couple of days - he can be very stubborn about resting and letting other people do things for him - he's not the most patient patient!)

He is still in agony - angry and frustrated, not knowing what started this problem with his neck - he is usually a very fit and healthy 77 year old - always on the go, always doing something... It's very upsetting for all of us seeing him this way - especially for my Mum, who has to deal with her own constant severe back pain and health problems, including diabetes :(

Any prayers and healing sent for both of them would be gratefully received - thank you.

In the meantime, manic Monday is upon us and I have the usually frantic day ahead, so I shall have my third coffee of the morning and get stuck in!

Whatever your star sign - have a good day :)

Brightest Blessings,

This week I am using the
Goddess Guidance Oracle Cards
by Doreen Virtue, Ph.D.

Quoted from the pack: "The goddesses are angelic, powerful, loving beings who want to help you with every part of your life. In this set of oracle cards by Doreen Virtue, you'll learn who the different cross-cultural goddesses are and how they can help you. Each card gives a specific message about how you can improve your life, health, relationships, finances, career, and spiritual path. The gorgeous artwork on each card depicts Kuan Yin, Laksmi, Brigit, Isis and Athena; as well as goddesses Celtic, Mayan, Egyptian, Greek, Tibetan, Buddhist and other traditions.

The accompanying guide book helps you to give accurate readings for yourself, your loved ones, and your clients. Whether you're a beginner or seasoned pro, you'll find that working with the goddesses brings Divine magic into your life."


My personal card for today:

COVENTINA - Purification 

“It is time for a cleansing detoxification of your body and mind.” 

Message from Coventina: This message comes as help, and not as an affront or a criticism. Your vessel has become clogged by overuse of harsh chemicals, and the offending source is within your psyche. You've been ignoring your body's many signals and screams for relief from the steady ingestion of impurities. Perhaps you've also noticed a slump in your energy level, and your degree of joy has lagged as well. Never mind these past effects, though, as the solution is at hand right now! Now that you've heard this message, do not hesitate for even a moment to make arrangements. You'll want to keep a sharp focus on the contents of your mind and speech as well, for the words you think and speak are the very diet that supports or thwarts you. Choose purity, and I promise you a changed outlook for the better."

Various meanings of this card: Follow your intuition's guidance about making lifestyle changes * Stop abusing alcohol or drugs * Avoid processed foods such as sugar, white flour, and so on * Eat more organic foods * Keep your thoughts and speech positive * Adopt a vegetarian or vegan diet * (This card can also be a validation that your current healthful path is working.)

Today's cards for each of the star signs:
Due to lack of time, etc. These are the 'quick reading' messages - for the full reading and meaning of the cards you will need to obtain these cards for yourself - or get someone else to buy them for you as a gift!
