Card: 7 Cremation Ground/Meditation – from The Secret Dakini Oracle by Nik Douglas and Penny Slinger.
“Develop the faculty of visualization and meditate on the transient nature of all things connected with this world. In doing so, you will gain power from this concept and it will become a ground of reference for all action.”
Message from The Faeries: What a frightening sight it must be, to see skeletons scattered on the ground. The bones of the dead. That is all that is left of what was once these people. One day, that will be all that is left of you. You will be only bones one day. Inside you are the bones. How fragile are you?
It is not morbid or unhealthy to contemplate your death, or rather the impermanence of your life. When you frame anything in the context of this fleeting moment of your life, you can gain so much from this meditation.
Take a few moments this week to think about how short your life is, in the grand scheme of things. What has been bothering you these days? What has been weighing on your mind? What has been burdening you? Ask your self if any of it really matters. If you died tomorrow, would that thing that’s been bothering you haunt you to the grave and into the after-life?
If the answer is yes, then we hate to break it to you, but you really need to do something about that thing that’s burdening you. If you are having trouble on your own, ask for help. Either from a professional or from someone you can trust. No soul should carry such a burden to the grave.
If the answer is no, you need to find a way to lay your unwanted burdens to rest and move on with your life. Don’t waste any more time on things – and people – that don’t really matter to you. It’s time to let go. It’s time to move on. It’s time to live your life as though each day were the last.
It’s time to live that sweet life.
La dolce vita.
Love, The Faeries.
