A reading for Liza

Hi Liza, your card is Ancestors, I hope it resonates with you.

    Yet it is in this loneliness that the deepest activities begin. It is here that you discover act without motion, labor that is profound repose, vision in obscurity, and beyond all desire, a fulfillment whose limits extend to infinity. –Thomas Merton

Soul Message: The golden light of wisdom that shines deep within the cave of my heart ignites the spark of divine life that is buried deep in my soul. The knowledge of my ancestry sleeps within my memory. I journey into the cavern of darkness where I may retrieve the treasure of insight and new understanding.

Alchemy and Transformation: This point of initiation entails sustained meditation, contemplation, and quiet reflection – out of which come revelation and insight. In our busy world, it is difficult to find the time to slow down and experience the tranquility that can facilitate one’s journey inward. However, at this stage of purification and growth, it is of the utmost importance to draw one’s boundaries with care. The essential journey into the recesses of the unconscious facilitates the inner knowledge that will lay the foundation of an enlightened future.

Awakening to the Archetype – The Wise Woman/Crone: One does not have to be in menopause or over fifty years of age to arrive at this powerful place. There are times in our lives, regardless of age, when we must journey into the darkened caverns of the soul in order to heed the call of transition and transformation. Inner work undertaken at this time will set the karmic chain of cause and effect in motion for a rewarding future life.

Everyday Encounters: Ironically, to the extent we resist the invitation to journey within—when that is clearly what is called for—we may experience depression or melancholy. We end up withdrawing from the world into a kind of tortured isolation, never realizing that the Bogey Man is only a Bogey Man until we turn and face him. Find a quiet place that opens your heart and soul to the beauty within. This all-encompassing luminosity is the creative matrix for your new and renewed self.
