Good morning campbellsworld visitors.
HAPPY THOR’S DAY TO ALL.
Since September 1, I’ve been getting up every day and before email, Facebook, etc. I’ve been journaling in a free flow writing style. This means that I make no plan of what I’m going to write about. I just sit down, open the journal, clear my mind, put my fingers on the keys and begin. Honestly, I’ve been quite amazed at the result.
Last week in my journal I listed each day of the week as it appears in the Magickal calendar provided by GrannyMoon of: http://www.goddesschool.com above each entry and focused on its meaning and how it related to my life.
This week, I’ve been drawing a Tarot card from my braille deck, and using a trusted Tarot guide and adding my own divination skill, have been writing a brief card description as well as my own thoughts.
O.K. now you’ve the backstory, here’s today’s entry.
SEPTEMBER 12, 2019.
TAROT CARD FOR THURSDAY (THOR’S DAY) 2019.
KING OF WANDS.
In a general context, the King of Wands indicates that you will have the energy, experience and enthusiasm to accomplish what you set out to achieve at this time. You are taking control of your life. You will motivate those around you, lead the way forward and set a good example for those who look up to you.
Well, after the semi rough start to the morning, I’m not quite sure how to take this card. I suppose it does give me some hope for the day ahead. Furthermore, Thor’s Day is one of my most favorite days of the week, but I’ll get to that in a moment.
First, to the beginning of the day. I woke at 4:24 A.M according to the talking clock by my bed. I was hurting all over. What with all my new activity, riding the public transit again after such a long time, climbing up and onto and down from busses, walking to and from the stop, plus my new workout routine as well as mine and Campbell’s daily walks has my body screaming in agony.
Sitting up on the side of the bed, putting my feet flat onto the floor, and correcting my posture, I declared, “I’ll continue with this until my body catches onto the program. I’m determine to make myself healthier.” I sat there a moment allowing my mind to clear itself of the last vestiges of sleep, then I began the morning’s stretching routine. Arms above my head up as far as they would go. Then while keeping my spine as straight as possible, I bent forward bringing my arms straight out in front of me and then sitting back up into my beginning position I crossed my arms right over left, and placing my hands together palms up with thumbs touching I sat for a full 2 minutes simply breathing quietly letting my body come fully awake.
Once I felt confident I could move without pulling some stiff muscle out of alignment, I stood slowly, oriented myself and finally I began to move.
Though I wanted a cup of coffee like someone wanting a drop of water in the desert, I made my way into the bathroom instead. I knew if I didn’t get into the bathtub and soak a while this day was going to be severely painful. So, rather than simply washing my face, and brushing teeth and hair, I forced myself to fill the tub with water as hot as I could stand it, and once it was full, I slowly lowered my aching body into it.
Immediately I knew I’d made the correct decision, I knew that once I’d soaked, bathed, and washed my hair I was going to feel a whole lot better.
30 minutes later as I stood in front of the bedroom fan, I was certain I’d made the right choice, and glad I was learning to be more attentive of my body’s needs. It was, I observed to myself, helping all parts of my life.
Just when I was thinking today was going to be the best day of the week yet and celebrating the fact that I needed to go nowhere, things began to slide down a slippery sloping hill. Reaching for my phone, so I could scroll through my notifications while I sat in front of the fan to dry, I was dismayed to see the blasted battery was dead again. “Drat!” I exclaimed to the air. “Left the blasted computer on again I bet.”
Getting up letting the towel fall to the floor, I went into the Livingroom, saw that I had indeed left the darn thing on, and connected to the hotspot to boot, thus killing the battery while I slept. “I must stop doing this.” I scolded myself. “I thought for sure I’d turned the blasted thing off.”
Plopping into my recliner, I plugged up the phone, and then just sat there a moment breathing slowly in and out centering myself yet again. “O.K. You know it will come back on, and you know that after a few minutes the voiceover will return, so get your naked self up, finish drying off, make coffee, and get yourself dressed. By the time you do all that, the phone will be back, and you can go on with your day.”
Feeling calm and self-assured once again, I headed into the kitchen to make that first cup of strength. When I opened the cabinet, I was derailed yet again. “What in all hell is this?” I queried the air. “These aren’t my normal coffee pods!” I stood there, looking at the coffee pod in my hand and couldn’t for the life of me figure out how to open the blasted thing. I tried slowly removing what I thought was the part which needed opened to slide the pod into the pot, but only succeeded in ripping it so that grounds flew everywhere. “Bloody hell!” I swore vehemently to the kitchen. “I distain wasting coffee. Someone ought to be shot for creating such a non-blind-friendly thing.”
Pouring the remainder of the grounds into the one cup basket I hoped that I’d not lost too many for a decent cup. Above strife while making coffee in the morning I hate nasty coffee even more.
I gave up on getting dressed, and just sat brooding in the recliner until my coffee was made. “Damn computer! Damn phone, and damn coffee pods!” I muttered to no one.
Finally, the coffee was made and as I cautiously took a sip, I was relieved to find it passed the test.
Finally, I managed to get dressed, and as I sat back down into my chair, my phone came back online, and I began to relax. I connected my computer to the hotspot, found my Tarot deck, and drew today’s card.
I still must try and find the money for paying my phone bill, and today is the last day. Thor’s Day though, as shown in the days of the week written here is a day of attracting more of what one has, and that along with today’s card gives me hope.
So, While my day has already been quite imbalanced going up and down worse than a pogo stick on hyper status, I’m determined to somehow be successful with this day, and furthermore, I’m determined to find a solution to my issue.
In the meantime, my cup is empty for the second time, and since when I made the second cup, I found a good way to handle those stupid pods, which I will never buy again, I’m going to attempt a third.
Since writing this, I’ve been on my morning walk with King Campbell, had a lovely chat with some folks in the neighborhood, the sun is coming up over the hill and I am now ready for that 3RD cup of coffee and some breakfast. I’ve fresh fruit, and am thinking of putting together a fruit and cheese plate, getting comfy and reading for a while. Then I should be better able to deal with the tasks which lie ahead.
