So I wrote the blog a couple of days ago about the friend who, to me, is giving her power away, insisting that the only healing that can happen will be done by doctors / medical folk over there somewhere who have all the right answers. In other words, the power to save and make her well is outside herself. And I was definitely giving up – didn’t see the point in trying, since she can’t hear me.
So at Reiki Healing Circle on Sunday evening, at the mini card reading after the healing work was done – I drew a Faery Oracle card called Lys of the Shadows. Lys is all about healing the shadows, addictions, bondage, self-esteem. We were all puzzled – didn’t seem to refer to me at all. I found a line that said ‘If you call upon Lys for assistance in helping another, she will always give it, often by encouraging that person to be receptive and others to also be helpful. She always has time to support those who have time for others.’ That made sense to me, since it is a lot of what I do.
And then I woke up Monday morning, understanding that the message was telling me not to give up on my friend, and to ask for help both here and in spirit to move her to wellness.
I love the way Spirit works in the world. Thanks, Spirit!
