Touchstone meditations for April 30



Saturday, April 30, 2016

Saturday’s Touchstones meditations quote is by Rita Mae Brown, and it states “A life of reaction is a life of slavery, intellectually and spiritually. One must fight for a life of action not reaction. Today, I will pause to notice the choices I have in the moment between someone’s action and my reaction.”

Lo Scarabeo Card Reading for Saturday, 4.30.16

The Strength card, 8th card, depicts a woman nurturing a lion. It is important to take action today rather than being a bystander and just gossiping about a particular situation. You have genuine feelings of love. (Well, the only I am planning for today is going to the third day of the Spring Garden Show to check out the seminars and ideas. I forgot that there is also an independent filmmakers meeting at 10am, but I think I will skip it this weekend).

The Knight of Chalices card is in reverse, and it has to do with a sexy Romeo figure. Since this card is in reverse, it has to do with meeting people that aren’t interested in love. (Since I will mostly likely spend another day at the Spring Garden Show on Saturday, I am mostly meeting people who are into plants, nature, gardening, farming and the earth).

The Sun card, 19th card, is also in reverse, and it indicates that you need to stand up for what is right, true, and speak up for the voiceless. They desperately need a voice, and you can be their voice and set them free. (I think I am doing more than enough of that on the internet, whether blogging, sharing videos, and signing and sharing petitions).

In the numerology aspect of this reading, these cards add up to 28, and the number 28 reduces to 1. The number 1 means leadership, standing in your own power, and making the current situation into how you want it to be.

Friday, April 29, 2016

Friday’s Touchstones meditations quote is by Billy Martin, and it states “I’ve never started a fight, but I never pulled back from a fight either. God, help me accept my own pain, and help me be tolerant of my friends’ mistakes.”

Radiant Rider Waite Card Reading for Friday, 4.29.16

Knight of Wands card is in reverse, and it indicates that you are thinking about what you will actually make with the creative ideas in practical ways. (Yeah, I still need to upload my three videos on youtube, but it is getting late now, and tomorrow is Day 2 of the Spring Garden Show. So, I might end up uploading the videos on Sunday, when I return from the last day of the event).

The 5 of Wands card is also in reverse, it indicates that you don’t need to worry about any details in your life. Everything will work out as planned. Right now, it is important to just live for the present and work on your current ideas.

The Fool card, 0 card, has to do with committing to use the ideas that you got on Thursday in a practical and productive way. Work on the ideas you come up with on a daily basis until you finish your project. (I think this card appears to be trying to encourage me to work on my graphic novel more often. I will likely move forward when I get my graphic novel done).

In the numerology aspect of this reading, these three cards add up to 6. The number 6 means taking responsibility and a temporary opening. A temporary window of opportunity will appear on Friday, and it is important to grab it fast before it closes. It is important to spot it, take action, and create something that will help you move forward.

The 2 of Pentacles card is in reverse, which indicates that you need to concentrate on your creative/artistic side more in order to balance out your tedious tasks with fun, creative, and artistic tasks.  (This sounds fun, and hopefully this event will give me all kinds of cool ideas to write about as well as do a video or two).

The Emperor card, which is the 4th card, is also in reverse, which indicates that you need to focus on the present moment, especially during this Thursday, because there will likely be some good luck, growth, expansion, and good fortune.

Events on my May Calendar

Wednesday, April 27, 2016

After a rejuvenating yoga class at noon, I walked through the mall, browsing inside Charlotte Russe before walking towards my car in the parking lot. As I listened to some music while driving back home, it felt like a relaxing but hopeful day. I thought about my weekend agenda, which will actually start on Thursday, and I will be busy checking out Spring Garden Show seminars, booths and events for four days. It will give me a lot of information to blog about, from gardening, outdoor living space home décor, outdoor party ideas, recipes, and plants information. I arrived home to record tonight’s Survivor episode because I plan to go to the yoga class in the evening. I also thought about the next scene in my graphic novel, but I felt I needed to tweak last night’s page, even though it is a rough draft. While in the women’s locker room, I picked up a discarded booklet about Website Marketing, which lists a step by step guide to increase views and visibility in order to improve business. It looks interesting. I want to try out these steps to see if it helps my blogs and videos.

After eating my lunch, I turned on my computer and entered IMVU. May is Creative Beginnings Month, in where there are lots of creative activities on IMVU, depending on the IMVU resident’s preferred interests.

Creators have the opportunity to create zombie-related products, showcase rooms to meet future customers, Happy Mother’s Day events, writing contest for Friday the 13th and Twilight Zone Day, Wear Purple Peace Day, and World Goth Day.

May 8th is Mother’s Day, and it will be on a Sunday. Share this day with your mother by spending your time with her doing her favorite activity together, which can be hanging out at the mall, going to a movie, brunch at her favorite restaurant, taking her to her favorite event or show, or just hanging out together at a family picnic, whether at a beach or park.

May 11th is on a Wednesday, and it is Twilight Zone Day. I haven’t watched that TV series in a long time, since I was a teenager.  I used to watch both the older black and white version as well as the newer and colored version. They both were interesting to watch, but the black and white version seems more classic and a little bit better.

May 13th will be on a Friday, and it is the only Friday the 13th for 2016. I just hope nothing weird and creepy happens on this date. Since it is the only Friday the 13th for this year, I am sure the Zionists are planning a big disaster, destruction, false flag, or any other shocking surprise for their special “13” day of mass murder, deaths, evil, and real life horrors. I plan to light candle for peace on this Friday the 13th, hoping nothing weird will happen.

May 16th is Wear Purple for Peace Day, and that also looks fun. I might do that to, in real life, if I remember to wear purple on May 16th. I thought Wear Purple Day had to do with the late Prince, whose theme colors were purple because of his song Purple Rain.

World Goth Day is on May 20th, and the Goth look is all about looking like a vampire, with pale skin, and monochromatic black from head to toe. I might dress all black for fun on this day, if I remember.

And, from May 26th to May 30th, there will be IMVU parties to showcase the IMVU Creators’ creative items. It is kind of like an IMVU art gallery artwalk to display Artists’ and Fashion Designers’ creativity in their virtual reality showcase studios. IMVU Artists’ can meet their fans and customers in order to socialize, party, and discuss their future work or work in progress.

There is also a contest in May to design outfits for a new Zombie game. This sounds fun, but I don’t know how to design outfits and items on IMVU. I can just draw it by pencil. I wonder if they accept drawings.

I did a photo shoot with my avatar, dressing her up in May’s themes, which includes Purple Day, Goth Day, Twilight Zone Day, and Friday the 13th Day. I didn’t have any purple clothes for my avatar. The only thing closest to purple is the space leggings, in which I paired it up with a blue and pink t-shirt, navy blue slouchy beanie, and black boots. She is also wearing aviator sunglasses with this outfit. The Goth look was easy, in which I dressed her in one of her old outfits, which include black hot pants with black lace stockings, black camisole, black platform booties, black choker with silver spikes, and black fedora with feather. I also added black finger nails, henna design on her hands, and black legwarmers. For the Friday the 13th and Twilight Zone Day, I decided to create a masonic outfit, which includes her matching shorts and cropped camisole in checkered black and white masonic print, long red gloves, red high-heel shoes, red beret, dark blood red infinity scarf, and a red plaid shirt around her waist. This look describes the masonic black and white terror with an accent on bloodshed red all over. I took some snapshots but I forgot to upload them into my computer. Maybe next time, I will post some of her May outfits.

At 7:30pm, I went to the yoga class, and it felt cold outside tonight. During yoga, I glanced at the time to notice 8:19pm, which is a good sign, I think. I returned home at 9pm, changed my clothes, and watched the recorded Survivor episode. It is getting suspenseful because it is toward the end of the season, and I think there is probably one more week until the finale. When the episode ended, I noticed that it was 10:10pm, another significant sign.

Wednesday, April 27, 2016

Wednesday’s Touchstones meditations quote is by Aristotle, and it states “Fine friendship requires duration rather than fitful intensity. Today, I will do what I need to do to be reliable in my friendships.”

Fine friendships are like fine wines.

Wild Wood Card Reading for Wednesday, 4.27.16

In these three cards, there is a female in each card perform some action.

The Seer, or 2nd card, is about having wisdom and knowledge. It indicates that you have the ability to figure out the truth in a particular situation. You intuition will guide you to the required answers or solutions.

The 2 of Arrows card has to do with Injustice.  This card has to do with being blinded and duped, or even brainwashed from knowing the truth. Or, maybe you are just not given the right information that you need. Someone might be trying to rip you off or cheat you in some way. But you will be able to recognize this cheater, liar or con artist right away because this person will just give you a bad feeling. And, therefore, you won’t be cheated or tricked into anything.

The 9 of Arrows card has to do with Dedication. It has to do with working hard and being dedicated to something by preparing for the future. Maybe take note of everything anyone says or does because you can use it in some way in the future. Consider recording a particular situation or making a video about it in order to get it out on the internet. So, gather all the facts and information around you, and maybe use it in a productive way in blogging, vblog, or for your novel.

In the numerology aspect of this reading, these three cards add up to 13, and the number 13 reduces 4. The number 4 means security, stability and structure.

Touchstones Meditations for April 26

Tuesday, April 26, 2016

Tuesday’s Touchstones meditations quote is by Omar Khayyam, and it states “I drink not from mere joy in wine nor to scoff at faith—no, only to forget myself for a moment, that only do I want of intoxication, that alone. I pray for help today in staying away from self-destructive intoxications so I am able to learn healthy releases.”

Wild Wood tarot Card Reading for Tuesday, 4.26.16

I notice that the scenes in these three cards look primitive, in a tribal sense. But the artwork looks interesting because they appear to tell a story for Tuesday, April. I notice beehives, cave with campfire, and a tree-shaped hut.

The 6 of Stones card is about Exploitation. It depicts a story about bee farm owners, where their beehives have been destroyed and there is a wildfire in the background. The owners have become poor and desperate for food because their business has been destroyed. They have no home, food, or even belongings, and they appear to be homeless.  This card indicates that there might be some kind of difficulties on Tuesday, whether you have financial problems, unemployment, or other issues, which is worrying you.

The 5 of Stones card is about Endurance. This card depicts a young girl sitting by her cave, in front of a campfire, while there is lightning in the background. (It reminds me of the reality show, Survivor). She appears to be fearless, independent, and self-sufficient. It also indicates that you have nothing to worry about because you have the strength, skills and knowledge to overcome such difficulties and obstacles. (That sounds good).

The 10 of Stones card is about Home, and this card is about building your own security and structure in your home life, and you will feel happy, safe, and secure in your own house.  You will be able to rebuild your home and life again, whether you do it on your own or you ask others for help. You will end up even better off at the end because you will be able to find a better job, career, and/or lifestyle that will lead you to have a better home, life and future ahead. (That sounds encouraging).

In the numerology aspect of this reading, these three cards add up to 21, and the number 21 reduces to 3. The number 3 means expression.

Touchstones meditations for April 25

Monday, April 25, 2016

Monday’s Touchstones meditation quote is by Charles Baudelaire, and it states “The natural world is a spiritual house…Man walks there through forests of physical things that are also spiritual things, that watch him with affectionate looks. The generosity of God is expressed in all kinds of physical things. I will remember that the spiritual is affectionate toward me.”

Wild Wood Card Reading for Monday, 4.25.16

The 10 of Bows is the Responsibility card. It has to do with working on something or building something, and you will make it to the top. You tend to feel burdened but what you are doing will apparently helping others in some way.

The Wanderer card is number 0, which I think is similar to The Fool card. By wandering around and having faith, you will be helped and supported by God as needed, as you move along on your way, which will help you arrive to your desired destination.  It is best to take on difficult tasks today because you will do it right. (I need to do more organizing and fix things, although these tasks aren’t really difficult, just tedious. I haven’t worked on my graphic novel in a while because of distractions. I need to work on that, too).

The Green Man card is the 4th card. This green man reminds me of the Jolly Green Giant in the commercial.  You will be rewarded by God for what you are doing. (I don’t think I am doing much).

In the numerology aspect of this reading, these three cards add up to 14, and the number 14 reduces to 5. The number 5 means freedom.

Touchstones Meditations for April 24

Sunday, April 24, 2016

Sunday’s Touchstones meditations quote is by Albert Camus, and it states “I shall tell you a great secret, my friend. Do not wait for the last judgment. It takes place every day. I am grateful for the rewards of each day in my spiritual awakening.”

Wild Wood Card Reading for Sunday, 4.24.16

I noticed on all three cards there are detailed graphic scenes of nature and wildlife. It seems to portray strength, power, and energy.

Knight of Arrows card is the Hawk card. It has to do with thinking in an extreme way and achieving a lot of work, but it has to do with being patient and hovering around, waiting patiently for the right moment to take action. Remember to live in the present and take quick action as you spot certain opportunities. So, meditate, focus and concentrate on your needs and desires in the present, and patient attention to your surroundings so that you will be able to spot temporary opportunities.

The 7th card is the Archer card. This Archer reminds me of Robin Hood and Katniss Everdeen. There are also some white wolves in the background in this nature scene, and they seem to be this archer’s sidekicks.  This card had to do with being forceful, alert, and focused in order to make the effort and move forward. You will likely succeed. Something that you really want will suddenly appear in your life, and you need to go after it and grab this opportunity.

Page of Stones is the Lynx card. This card has to do with learning to be more practical. You are already knowledgeable about life and doing tasks, which gives you all the skills and abilities you need to do certain things. Just approach the opportunity you want, and it will likely work out for you because it is meant for you. You will soon experience victory and success on achievement and accomplishments.

In the numerology aspect of this reading, these three cards add up to 9, and the number 9 means spirituality and completion, and you are nearing the end of cycle, in which you will accomplish certain things you want in your life.

The 4 Stones card is about Protection. This card depicts a lovely scene of a cute deer sitting under a stone shelter, and there is a sunset in the background. You are safe and protected by your physical circumstances. (That is a good sign).

Orange Sunset and Pink Full Moon Night

Friday, April 22, 2016

At around 6:15pm, I drove to the Turtle Rock hiking area, which is practically on the same street that I live on, and we walked the hilly terrain until we went up on the Suicide Hill. I took some photos of the red sunset, but I couldn’t find the full pink moon. We might have been too early for the moon because someone mentioned that the full moon will be in view around 8:06pm. We started going downhill on the rough and hilly terrain, which was steep and rocky in some areas, but we walked faster because we were walking downhill. Then, we walked in residential areas, on sidewalks, and through some townhomes communities. I noticed many nice and expensive homes on the way. I wonder if the people who own these homes clean their own homes. It got dark around 8pm, but many people brought along flashlights. I forgot mine. When we arrived at the area where we parked, we decided to hang out at the UTC for a snack. I wasn’t that hungry because I don’t eat this late, but I decided to buy some Vegan Buffalo Wings and New Belgium Amber Ale. The vegan Buffalo wings was spicy. They were good. We ate together at the Blaze Pizza restaurant because some people from our group were eating pizza there. I noticed that the University Town Center was very quiet today because it is usually very busy on Friday evenings. We stayed there until 10pm, chatting and eating. When I arrived home, I noticed that the time was 10:10pm.

At around 10:45pm, I walked outside to check out the Full Pink Moon, and it looked beautiful. I even noticed a slight pink tint, mostly at the edges of the moon, but it still had a glow of a bright white color. I took some snapshots of the full pink moon.

Today was an interesting day of a hiking workout and social interaction.
