01 Sep The Madame’s Bone Oracle Reading 09.01.20
The Spirits chose MASK, AIR, and SPIRIT from The Madame’s Bone Oracle this morning.
Today’s message is to say what you mean, and mean what you say. MASK is about deception or illusion, and when combined with AIR, the element of communication, it is about making sure our message is clear. Miscommunication and misunderstandings happen so easily. Sometimes the problem is in how we said it. Sometimes the problem is in how they heard it. We aren’t responsible for how other people interpret our message, since it will be filtered through their own biases, experiences, and feelings, but we can make this process less confusing if we say what we mean and mean what we say as precisely and clearly as possible. Communication is not just what words come out of our mouth. It’s tone, inflection, body language. It’s “vibe” and energy. Have you ever asked someone if they’re ok and they snap at you and say “Yes! I’m fine!”, but their vibe and body language says “Nooooo!”. So how are we to proceed in that situation? Believe them and carry on? Leave them alone, because clearly they don’t want to talk about it? Confront them about snapping at us? Pressure them to open up? Well, it’s complicated, and there’s not a one-size-fits-all solution. The Spirits want us to look at that example and apply it to ourselves first to gain a little insight. Is your vibe portraying something different than what your mouth says? Why is that? Why are you using that MASK to try to conceal how you really feel? Hint: It’s probably fear. Fear of rejection. Fear of vulnerability. Fear of having your feelings dismissed or downplayed. Fear of being misunderstood. I could go on, but you get the idea. SPIRIT today is telling us that honesty is self-care for the SPIRIT – yours and others. Have you ever felt the weight lift from your chest when you spoke your truth? THAT is your SPIRIT sighing with relief. The more honest we are, the more free our SPIRIT is. The Spirits want you to reflect today on an area that you need to be real honest with yourself about, what you use as a MASK, and how that MASK is affecting your life.
