Where I PIck a Card

I have a deck of cards I use occasionally called The Power Deck by Lynn V. Andrews. You’re supposed to spread the cards out on your bed or table and pick the one that appeals to you at that moment in time. Each one has a beautiful picture on it, sort of metaphysical, new-age, sometimes odd, but very striking and always sort of interesting.

Today, sitting at my computer, finished writing one blog entry about trusting your higher self, I decided to put my money where my mouth was. I closed my eyes and centered a little bit and asked for guidance from higher self. Then, on a variation of spreading out the cards, I just started thumbing through them. I stopped at this one turned it over and read the message:

Individuality – When the shield carrier reaches the top of the mountain, she never seeks approval, because approval is based on doubt. Your strength and wisdom are celebrated in your unique ability to view the experience of life with new vision. Power lies in individuality and the ability to see yourself through your own eyes and not through the eyes of another. To be in power, you must take your power and exist within your own individuality.

I have some sad news to report from my city. Saturday afternoon, 3/21/09, during a routine traffic stop two Oakland police officers were shot. One was killed and the other was declared brain dead Sunday afternoon. About two hours after the shooting during the traffice stop at 3:00 PM on Saturday police converged on an apartment building not far from the first shooting in an attempt to apprehend the suspect. He opened fire with an automatic weapon on the policemen killing two and injuring another.. The suspect was killed.

Please say a prayer for all concerned. You can read more about it here.
