Touchstones meditations for September 28



Wednesday, September 28, 2016

Wednesday’s Touchstones meditation quote is by Julia Child, and it states “Life itself is the proper binge. I ask that my compulsions and my weaknesses be lifted from me. I’m not able to cure myself, but I pray for help.”

1st card reading for Wednesday, September 28, 2016

The Daughter of Wands card depicts a snake making out the infinity symbol. There are also some pink flowers on the stick it holds. He adds that someone will reappear in your life on Wednesday, and you have a fresh start with that person. There is an opportunity for a new beginning. (No one or Nothing appeared today because it was the same old routine for me, where I went to the gym for noon yoga class and then returned home to turn on the computer).

The Magician card is in reverse, and it depicts a leopard with a cup and sword. This sudden reappearance of someone or something isn’t new because it has always been in your life. But you discover it or the person all over again, and you want to continue.

The Son of Swords card is all about restlessness and urgency. It depicts an owl perched on a sword.

These three cards add up to 3, and the number 3 means expression. Express your feelings about this situation.

According to someone else’s video, these readings could be off by a couple of days. So, it could happen sometimes this week, but who knows. I will be on the lookout for someone or something reentering my life this week.

 

2nd card reading for Wednesday

I decided to use a different video I haven’t watched before in order to get another perspective.

The 4 of Air card indicates that you should think things through before taking any action. You are in the process of recovery as certain negative memories return.

The 10 of Fire card indicates it is important to eat healthy and skip sweets. Do some deep breathing and meditate.

The Chariot card is all about moving forward. In the evening, you will receive clarity, where you will be able to leave the past behind. Or, you might be planning for a trip somewhere.

I Will Love Where I Am Right Now card is about being happy and grateful for your current life.

 

3rd card reading for Wednesday

Queen of Swords card is about clarity and getting rid of negativity. She sticks up for innocent and sees through the guilty. She is quiet, but says what others are thinking. She is direct and honest. Everything is perfect for you and you don’t lack anything. Enjoy your current life.

Freedom card indicates you are free to do whatever you want. Don’t let the past negative incidents make you stuck in a rut. Break the wall around you and move forward. You are wiser now, and you can handle situations  as well as handle stupid people better.

True Love card indicates a romance of a lifetime, filled with chemistry between the couple. They both have equal power and strength.

The 10 of Cups card indicates unconditional love. Remain in the present moment all the time, and experience Wednesday, regardless what happens. You have everything around you that enables you to live life.

The Emperor card indicates stability and security.

So, what did I experience from this today? I experienced a relaxing yoga workout, the September 2016 desert heat and humidity in Irvine, and nothing much different, except slight weather changes.

Prioritizing My Daily To-Do List

Tuesday, September 27, 2016

I did some errands in the afternoon, before going to Woodbridge Lakes at 6pm for a five-mile street hiking with a group. Then, we hung out at Urban Plates, where I just enjoyed a small drink of Pumpkin Javiva, which I bought at Peet’s nearby. Actually, I didn’t know it was a cold drink. But it was good for a change because I usually buy hot coffee drinks. It tasted like a dessert. At 9:30pm, everyone decided to leave, and I drove back home, where I entered into a cool house. I had turned on the air conditioner earlier today because this week has been really hot and humid, similar to a desert, and my old fan broke. So, I guess I will keep the AC on for another month, probably until mid-October or the end of October. November is usually cooler.

While hanging out on Facebook, I suddenly realize that the time is 12:12am.

I haven’t been working on my graphic novel all weekend. I was busy making videos on Saturday and Sunday, and I was preoccupied with other stuff. And, today, I was running around in the desert-like humidity and heat, doing errands. Then, in the evening, I enjoyed some street hiking, and just hanging out later.

Wednesday, September 28, 2016

After yoga at noon, I returned home and turned on the computer. I didn’t do much today, although I need to work on my graphic novel as well as I want to post some interesting stuff from the latest issues of C Magazine for September fashion week 2016. But my mind seems elsewhere this week.

Touchstones meditation for September 27

Tuesday, September 27, 2016

Tuesday’s Touchstones meditations quote is by Reggie Jackson, and it states “What I have wanted is consistency, ever since the day back in Wyncote when my mom and dad split. I have wanted to be liked. I have wanted to be loved. I have wanted to be in a family-type atmosphere. Today, I will remember I do not have to be alone with my pain.”

1st card reading for Tuesday, September 27, 2016

The 3 of Wands card depicts an upside down triangular shape of a magic mirror form because of the colorful and foggy rainbow colors inside the triangle. This card is about new beginnings, where you will be given a choice of what you want to move ahead with. He adds that it could also be about fantasizing and dreaming as well as missing friends.

The Son of Cups card depicts a swan and a cup of rainbow-colored grass inside this cup. You might be a little vulnerable and insecure at this time, and you just need some support.

The 5 of Cups card depicts a horse grazing. This card indicates that you might feel a little bit depressed, just eating and thinking too much about negative stuff.

These three cards add up to 9, and the number 9 means spirituality and completion, in which this is an end of the cycle. Spend your time today with others.

Today, I do plan to do a local 5-mile hike around the Woodbridge lakes residential area in Irvine. It is an energizing evening walk in a nice area, where I can meditate and get a good workout for two hours. I decided to hang out with some of the group members at Urban Plates, but I bought a Pumpkin Javiva cold coffee drink from Peet’s.

 

2nd card reading for Tuesday

The High Priestess card indicates that it is best to stay grounded, centered and balanced. Handle situations constructively to release and let go, and move forward.

A Roadway path card indicates that there good be some anger flare-ups this evening. Also, pay attention to your dreams tonight, if you remember anything when you wake up.

Although this reading was about being emotional throughout the day, I felt very calm and relaxed all morning and afternoon.

Lapis Lasley rock is good for wisdom and serenity, and it is a light blue color. I already have wisdom and serenity.

 

3rd Leo Love Intuitive Reading for the Week of September 26th to October 2nd

The Empress card is in reverse

The Emperor

The 8 of Swords card

You might have placed too much emphasis the other person’s action or inaction. Although there is new beginning in the air, and starting something new, you tend to feel stuck in one place. You might even feel powerless.

Justice card has to do with getting some money out of something, and this card has to do with some kind of turnaround happening to improve situations.

The Sun card has to do with power. But you have confined yourself.

You might get an offer of stability. She adds The World card has to do with a cycle ending so the new cycle can begin.

Ace of Wand card has to do with an opportunity to take action.

It appears that the situation will turn around.

Touchstones meditation for September 26

Monday, September 26, 2016

Monday’s Touchstones meditation quote is by Hindu proverb, and it states “To try to extinguish the drive for riches with money is like trying to quench a fire by pouring butterfat over it.

1st card reading for Monday, 9.26.16

The 5 of Swords card indication competition and conflict. The scene depicts an earthworm being split in half, which indicates it is better to ignore competition and conflict. (I didn’t experience any competition or conflict on Monday. I just work up late, around 9am, because I slept late last night, which is way into Monday early morning hours. It was very hot and humid outside, which felt like an arid desert. It reminded me of Las Vegas in the summertime. I enjoyed one hour of yoga, and I came back home to blog).

The Chariot, 7th card, indicates success, victory, and triumph. You will move forward, quickly and with purpose, which allows you to overcome fear as you rush forward with determination and strong will. (I hope this is true because it sounds good).

The Devil card, 15th card, is in reverse, which indicates that you will have a positive morning, getting things done.  On Sunday, I need to do another video at the art gallery.

Ace of Wands card indicates new jobs, promotions, or advancements in creative projects. You will be very inspired today because of the blessings you will receive. Also, start a new project or hobby. Maybe work on an old hobby. There are lots of passions today, and it is recommended to go out in order to do something new and be spontaneous. This will create you new beginnings with new opportunities. (I was considering on looming a purse with the blue yarn I have left, but I am not sure which stitch to use).

Queen of Cups card indicates you are in touch with intuition and dreams. It could be motherhood, or just nurturing something. (I am nurturing my furry son, Gumby).

Peach card has to do with new life. Be spontaneous and do something new and different. (I couldn’t think of anything new and different to do today. So, I decided to go browse in Sprouts and Marshalls because I haven’t been there in a long time. I could have gone to the hiking group at Woodbury area, which is on the other side of Irvine, where Cox Store is at, but I am not really familiar with the area or hiking trail because I never really go there, unless I need to buy something at one of the stores in that area. It is just out of my way. But I recently noted that there is a Home Depot in that area, and I would like to go check it out some day in the near future, maybe when I actually need something from Home Depot).

She uses four cards in her reading.

Crossroads card indicates direction. You are forced to make a decision.

Although I will probably still continue with the local street hiking because they are good exercise in the outdoors).

Stork card indicates the decision you need to make. It is a positive transformation and migration. You need to be stronger to handle others. It could mean that you need a change by moving on elsewhere, and you can stand on your own, if you decide to move on. You can also join these activities, but just do your own thing by enjoying the activity. (Yeah, I feel I really need a positive transformation and migration because I want to move on. But I will still occasionally go on some of the hikes and photography seminars).
