Cross My Palm with Silver — Readings

Do you charge something in exchange for readings?

I do not read professionally for strangers, neither did any of the women in my family.  We did however, still “charge” something for readings.  Even today when I read for a friend I expect that a small token, as little as a quarter piece, be placed on the deck before I begin.  The Seeker holds the money between the thumb and index finger of their right hand (no matter which is dominate) and then crosses the cards.

If something is given that can’t be held in the hand for the crossing, say a cup of coffee or a crocheted blanket (yep, some of the items I’ve received), the Seeker still crosses the cards.  This exchange is not to “make money” from the reading, it is to balance out the exchange of energy — the Querent gives something in exchange for the reading.  This is another one of those traditions that I can’t explain, I only know that it is the way that I was taught when I was young.

*Update 7/22 – I should clarify that there are two different “crossings” going on here, one as a blessing for the reading and the other as an exchange for services.

What are your thoughts on charging for readings?  Do you “charge” friends and family?  I’d love to hear about your experiences!

Getting to Work — Wee Daily Three

7 of Clubs – Troubles at work or some practical problem; The power of chance, or happenstance, in general

A of Clubs – A new task, goal, or opportunity

Q of Clubs – A woman of darker coloring or a business woman; The truth of a business matter

Outcome:

Be on the lookout and prepare for practical issues or problems (7C) surrounding a new business opportunity (combination of AC and QC).

When I see all the same suits in a spread, as I do today, it is a very loud message to listen to what the cards are saying.  All clubs in a single draw (work, callings, and plans) means that the planning stage is complete… and action / involvement is now required to push through on your goals!

Transitions in Meditation

I have been meditating regularly for quite some time.  Years, actually.  Not always the same way, but always attempting, non-the-less.  I started out with binaural beats and guided and have recently started to incorporate silent meditation into my practice.  This was, and still is, very difficult for me; quieting the mind can be challenging at times.  My usual schedule is to do a guided meditation at lunch after a quick yoga session then a silent meditation in the evening after prayers and retiring to bed.  I usually go to sleep after my family, so it is nice and peaceful in the house!

Well, I don’t know what has happened… but something broke loose in my head last night!  I have been feeling the energy cycling through my body, twitching, experienced unwanted weight loss, a high-pitched humming in my ears, and a constant low-grade headache, but attributed it all to stress.  After last night’s meditation, I don’t think that I can view these happenings within a vacuum anymore!  I’d said my evening prayers and was preparing for meditation when the twitching began… usually it was isolated to my right eye-brow.  It had been twitching for weeks and was driving me crazy!  Not this time, it was actually originating from inside of my forehead.  It wasn’t an external or muscular feeling. It was the strangest thing, as if I had an electrical current buzzing inside of my brain.  It was quite intense, it didn’t hurt, it didn’t alarm me.  I just thanked Spirit, accepted this gift, came out of the meditation and drifted off to sleep.

Now today, as I was doing my guided meditation, I saw two very distinct and beautiful images.  One was a vivid pink flower, open and accepting of the sun’s rays.  The other image was of a radiant sunbeam breaking through a cloud covered sky.  I’m not sure what these images mean, I am following Lydia Clar‘s guided meditation series, “Out of Darkness Into Light” and noted everything down as well as times per her recommendations.  I can’t help but be very excited about these transitions I am going through.  Meditation for spiritual development is a new journey for me, one I stumbled upon quite by accident, but I am within her grips now!  Have you ever experienced anything like this?  Thought you were going crazy?  Maybe not!

*Update 7/19 – In last night’s silent meditation I had a vision of a light gray / silvery feather float down from the sky, it landed gently in my hand.  I don’t know what they symbolism is behind this… or what the message is.  A gift from Spirit?  A message that I am on the right path?  Any takers?  I haven’t really had visions in meditation before, so this is exciting!
