Wednesdays are an interesting sort of day. Some people welcome Wednesday with a feeling of relief – a week half over. Some approach it with resignation – being only through half the week. I like viewing the day as a mid-point in our modern living sense of weekly time. It is neither bad nor good. Instead it is a day to reevaluate how the week is going, a day to reaffirm the energy and goals set on the weekend or Monday before, a day to regroup.
I will be pulling a card or two each Wednesday from the Lightworker Oracle by Alana Fairchild, for some insight and guidance on areas we might want to spend some time with.
Today we have card 42 “Fifth Ray of Intellectual Knowledge”. There is a woman in the center depicted in full color, smiling, light radiating out of her, who is surrounded by others who are lacking in color and vibrancy, with crabby unhappy expressions on their faces. One’s eye is drawn to the woman, with the flowers in her hair and wreathed about her neck.
This card is about seeing things for what they really are, making wise choices, and letting go of situations and relationships that are not of positive spiritual benefit to you. It encourages us to look for the truth in things, to be particular about who we spend our time and energy with. The Fifth Ray also encourages us to explore life with a scientific mindset – open to knowledge and clarity, to observe and experiment with what works best for you in all aspects of your being (work, health and so on).
Given our other insights for the week, I see today’s message as one of really being honest with ourselves about the people or situations we have surrounded ourselves with that are not aiding us in the pursuit of our joy and goals. Take a few minutes to find that clarity, and then regroup – get back on track mentally, spiritually, emotionally with the direction you chose to enter this week.
And for those who truck with Angels, this card indicates you can call upon the aid of Archangel Raphael to help you.
So I thought it might be nice to ask how we can move forward this week with joy – and the card which came to hand is #28 ~ Master Hilarion & Archangel Raphael.
This card is encouraging us to make the time for resting our minds. Without this absolutely vital rest, our minds become fatigued and we become weary and discouraged. We have likely been working our minds hard, taking in new things, processing a lot of information and insights, and we need to give ourselves the gift of mental rest.
Take some time today (and every day if you can) to engage in those things which allow that to happen for you. For some people, meditation is a way to allow stillness and peace in the mind. For others just a walk in nature letting the mind wander without focus is helpful. Explore various techniques, including facilitating a good night’s sleep, and find something that works for you. One thing that is beneficial for me is to brew a nice cup of tea and sit in the garden just listening to the birdsong and watching the world – the way the light catches a blade of grass, the cloud floating across the sky, the flicker of wings through the air.
