BRIDGE TO SKY
First the Sun and then the Moon....all in harmony and balance....One of Them will be 'Round soon.
Pondering sun and moon the other day, it is sunny here, but night other places on the Earth. We are heading into fall in the northern hemisphere, yet others are shifting into spring. * "As you continue with your day...." "Day" is relative!
Am I ready to write?
I grab at random: chunk of rose quartz. "check"
Wearing labyrinth pendant "check"
Note Pad and Pen (yeah, old fashioned) "check"
** Tea and Flower Music, Wind Records Taiwan: reminds me of cranes flying, "check"
Based on *** Debra Basham's blog post Hello Fear, we see Children of the 8 of Swords about to enter a cave or labyrinth, a soul journey into the unknown, perhaps an initiation. What will they find? Will they turn back? Debra drew Inner Child Cards from Lightworker.com, a free online resource.
Switching gears to **** Dinosaur Train kids' programming PBS, We see Shiny Pteranadon reluctant to enter a cave.
Shiny, "I don't like caves," Caves are dark and damp."
"There might be something shiny in the cave!" encourages Dad.
In another segment, Caving with Vlad, the dinosaur children view rock formations and crystals with a small furry mammal from the Jurassic period.
"Oriental Mystics say that the true self resides in the cave of the heart. We must go there to restore our wisdom."
Gnomes, Gems, and Rainbows
From the Inner Child, Ace of Crystals Card, we read "In northern folklore and legend, a belief exists that during the winter...gnomes are weaving crystals underground from the light of the sun, moon, and stars. When...springtime arrives, the gnomes offer [beam] these precious gems to the sky, and through the gentle rain...magnificent rainbows are created."
"The rainbow in the sky is a bridge uniting Heaven [Yin] and Earth [Yang] and represents the harmony of all people."
"The Chinese call the rainbow the T'ai Chi or Great Ultimate...."

The Rainbow Crane, my friend, Louise Watson, R.N. "Let your life unfold like the petals of a rose opening, one at a time and each in perfect order."
Circles of Light, passing through the kitchen, "circles" formed from sunlight angled through Venetian blinds and onto the microwave across the room. I snapped the shot, a feeling of mysterious sunrise/sunset.
