30 Mar The Madame’s Bone Oracle Reading 3.30.20
The Spirits chose EBB, HEART, and MINERA from The Madame’s Bone Oracle this morning.
I’ll break down the meaning of each bone, and then we’ll discuss them as a group.
EBB: Inaction, Recede, Release, Backwards
HEART: Problem solved through feeling, connections to others, love
MINERA: Gemstone and Crystal energy, healing through earth centered modalities
Yesterday I took some time away from the craziness to plant a few herbs and some tomatoes. I really needed to get my hands in the dirt and get some sunshine and fresh air. I, for one, am feeling antsy, and I’m betting you are too. We have been conditioned to feel that if we aren’t being productive and staying busy, we are being lazy. This busy-ness often serves as distraction from issues that seem outside of our control. We like control. EBB tells us to relinquish some of that perceived control: pause, recede, take no action. EBB is active AND passive – it is choosing to take no action and recede, pull back, let go. Many of us are being “forced” to stay home right now, at least when we aren’t doing “essential” activities like grocery shopping or going to the doctor (or unless you work in one of those essential fields of business), and many of us feel out of control. Control is an illusion we use to combat the anxiety of chaos – and we are all certainly dealing with chaos right now! The Universe has put us all in time out right now, and we need to think about what we’ve done! When combined with HEART, we see that now is a great time to put energy towards tending to our emotional well-being. Get out of your head and into your HEART. There is a lot of focus on our physical well-being right now, obviously, but hand sanitizer doesn’t work on your HEART. How can you use this time out to work on some emotional healing? Write a letter to someone you didn’t get closure with – no need to send it, you just need to say it. Let go of that massive weight of regret. Have a good cry! Forgive yourself for being human, and not knowing then what you do now. Extend to yourself the same grace you give to others. MINERA shows up today as a healing modality to help in this process. Crystals, gemstones, and minerals are keepers of Earth’s magick. It’s not just our eyes that are attracted to the beautiful colors and shapes that the earth creates in these things. It is the energy they carry – each unique, just like people. How can you incorporate a bit of this Earth magick into your daily life? Wear some crystal jewelry. Carry a stone in your pocket. Sleep with a gemstone under your pillow or on your nightstand. Add crystals (and salt!) to your bath. Some crystals to consider using right now are Rose Quartz, Rhodochrosite, Prehnite, Selenite, Emerald, Aventurine, Lapis Lazuli, Aquamarine, or other MINERA associated with the HEART chakra. Go outside, lay down on the ground, place a crystal on your heart, close your eyes and take 10 deep breaths (no chest breathing!) – inhaling and expanding your abdomen for 7 seconds, exhaling for 10. Release (EBB) all of that carbon dioxide out of your lungs. It feeds the trees, they filter it and give us back clean oxygen, and we breathe it out to start the cycle all over again. If that’s not a connection to nature, I don’t know what is. When you feel like you are centered and calm, how about sending out some of that love and healing energy to others? Imagine light emanating from your HEART chakra to that crystal, and from that crystal that light is refracting and spreading to those near you, then out farther, and farther, until all you can see (in your third eye) is bright light. When you’re finished, carry that crystal (MINERA) as a touchstone of that love energy that you shared. Use it to remind yourself in troubled times that you can get back to that place of love and connection with a mere thought.
