A Daily Message from the Druid World
I've neglected this card set for quite a while, and have lately discovered how in tune these cards are to the inner life of animals. So, I have been pulling a card every now and then, to get a "message for the day."
If you have worked with any of these typed of cards, you'll understand that there is nothing predictive or nefarious about tuning in to the spiritual via tools like these artistic cards. What most of these cards are designed to do is to help us set aside the mundane harshness of this worldly existence, and focus on inner peace, on things we don't always see or acknowledge.
This morning I pulled "the Blackbird" and I was struck by the beauty of the writing. This beautiful bird in Druid lore represents "enchantment, the gateway, the inner call."
"There are times in life when it is important to concentrate on the outer world and your responsibilities in that world, but there are also times when you must attend to the haunting song of your soul which calls you to a study of spiritual truths, and to an exploration of the inner world through dreams and myths.
After reading this I realized that much of my waking time these past few weeks has been spent on "wordly responsibilities" . . . no wonder i have been tense and not sleeping well.
These daily readings have also made me much more aware of every living being that crosses my path, and I know that when a "visitor" shows up in my life, it is so much more than coincidence.
