Clangorous Torrents Expose Wounds
This post is for my 06/03/22 Group Distance Reiki Session. If you are reading this at any time please know the energy and message, as it resonates, is perfect for you.
I was interested in bringing in some extra sound therapy in today’s session, and was set up to work with bowls and forks, then just before beginning some very heavy rains came through… and continued. As I started connecting the various rain noises echoed though my quiet home and I felt these were serving as sound therapy for the session. Different chiming on glass and metal and beating on wood, the noises of powerful water also served as a metaphor for cleansing away.
There was a feeling of opening old wounds – and much so of wounds we didn’t even know we had. The type that get re-opened with use, and daily life, and trying to move forward. Now that they were being seen -and washed clean- there was an empowerment of being able to walk the tight-rope of keeping up with life’s requirements while also watching and balancing the healing process, by taking care, being gentle, and continuing awareness on what parts need tending, to heal fully and completely this time.
I setup the altar with some earthly essential oils, putting both Cypress and Cedarwood in a diffuser. As the rains quieted I took some deep inhales and felt these contributed to a cleansing into the Earth. A sense of shedding old skin and barriers to further assist in finding these unacknowledged wounds, and bringing to light what is important to work on at this time in space…
A growth and expansion – cracking through the old bark and coming more-so into ourselves.
The rain had surged again, then was still coming heavily, just slightly muted from its torrential peaks. I brought in some light crystal bowl work to accompany it, along with a selenite stick.
There remained a sense of picking up the pieces, checking the dark corners, and finding out what’s been hiding that we need to release. Making an effort of introspection and checking on the places and spaces we usually take for granted because they’re “working like they’re supposed to”, and easy to ignore.
I drew a card for extra guidance here, both in closing out the session as well as for readers in the week to come. From Sandra Anne Taylor’s “Energy Oracle Cards” deck we received #43 MAN HOLDING A COIN, inverted, which has been a fairly consistent draw for this group over the last 6 months or so… very interesting. (considering a 53 card deck!!) I’ve included a picture and full description below – and if you’re someone who joins and reads regularly please see if it stands out for you in any new way. Additionally, or if you’re not a regular, I feel this overlaps somewhat fluidly with today’s other messages: most specifically in what you may be overlooking or overtly avoiding in health (-or finance-) matters, which aligns greatly with hidden wounds and those processes we take for granted. Further, to me the card seems to indicate a possible resistance to spending when it comes to healthcare at this time, and the need to consider looking deeper at that belief. Is there a care or treatment that is a concern because of the cost that really would be in your best interest right now (be it actual money, or time, or lost time leading to lost money) ? Is it worth a fresh assessment of taking on an expense for your greater good? Do beliefs you’ve been struggling with around health or money come from patriarchal systems that you’re ready to upend?
I stepped outside for the last several minutes of the session to find the rain had stopped and a patch of blue sky was letting the sun shine through. It still sounded like rain, as most of the trees were filtering drops, as were other plants and structures. Many creatures were basking in the warmth or hopping/zipping/flitting around, invigorated. The damp stirred up much, and with the energy there was a very peaceful clarity and sense of resilience to what would be starting anew.
I closed with extensive sweeping, sweeping, sweeping – clearing, waving off, energetically washing away of all that was released today. Sometimes we start to let go but are still a bit attached, or holding in our space/on a different layer, so I felt the need to really accentuate the release from what turned up, out, over – for complete separation and transmutation.
With Peace & Blessings,
Donations deeply honored, if you’re able.
#43 MAN HOLDING A COIN
Male Connection in Money, Health, or Value Reversed
This card reversed reveals that you could be acting against your own best interests where money or health matters are concerned. You might be spending a bit too much or simply not be conscious enough about what’s really important. If that’s the case, become more aware of your choices and priorities, and bring more discipline to your life.
This card reverse could also be warning of a self-absorbed or dismissive man who may be out for his own advancement – even at the cost of your own. Be conscious of the critical or demanding men around you, and always remember that you alone determine who has the real power in your life.
Affirmation: I determine my own destiny. I take financial action and am receiving wonderful assistance from those around me.
