Spiritual Card of the Day – River – 16th October 2018
The softened light from the sun falls upon this meandering river, the sparkles reflecting the gentle movement taking place in the river’s body.
She moves easily around the curves and rocks, sometimes gently, as portrayed in this card, and sometimes quite rapidly and intensely. Still, the river’s movement will always eventually land her in the bosom of great Grandmother Ocean.
Some of her water will evaporate along the way to feed the waters of the sky – just as it takes place in any other bodies of water – and bless the land and the seas with replenishment in a perfectly natural cycle that helps the planet sustain itself. Water if our lifeblood, a nutrient more essential than food. The flow of water throughout our own bodies serves as a metaphor for how Life itself flows through us and expresses as us.
Fighting or blocking the flow of your Life Force can lead you to feeling spiritually void and disconnected from Source. Just like the metaphor of the river, it does not work to force or fight this compelling movement. When you simply pay attention and observe the flow, it becomes easier to navigate your experiences and see what lies ahead, or at least get a sense of what is to come by the ever-changing geography that unfolds as you cruise along.
Your resistance is hampering your ability to make a choice in this matter. Surrender to the movement of Life, be grateful and you will see the signs along the shore and in the river itself that offer you clues about what direction your egoless Self is to be making. “Go with the flow” is more than a trite aphorism here. IT is essential that you do so now. Breathe, relax, and you will know.
