Awakening



"Awakening" - republished from 2008

6/25/08 - This card has been a close companion over the last week or so, and today for the first time I noticed that the hand on her temple...looked as if it was a separate hand...the hand of an "other". (In the original image, the hand is that of the woman's.) This new vision blew me away...for what an empowering and encouraging image that is for me...to see the Great Giving Hand bestowing blessings, healings and new insights to me. This opens me even more to receiving. It's like a new light has gone on inside of me...and even though she still appears to be sleeping...growth and healing are taking place like never before. And when the time is right, she will go from "Awakening" to the "Awakened One" (a new card to create). What an important, encouraging and exciting message for me. I just love the SoulCollage process.

The hand says: I am the one who awakens you from your sleep…lays hands upon you and heals your pain… I am the one who dissolves what needs to be dissolved. I give you the power of remembrance that you are already healed…I give you remembrance of your authentic power. I give you blessings…the blessing of knowing your innate self is whole, and complete right now. I give you the remembrance of that Divine Energy Pattern…the perfect blueprint is already within you...awaiting your full recognition and acceptance. It is patient and will allow you to clear away any brush and debri that inhibits your recognition. Know though...it is already done. My healing hand is upon you always…my energy is always blessing you, directing you, and it…guiding you into more Light. I am the one who heals and rules with the Universal power and I open you to receive the same.

6/19/08 - The woman says: I am the part of you who is awakening....awakening to transformation...to new life...new visions, a tranformational way of communicating with myself and my sisters and brothers of the planet. I am wider-awake now...to my soul-visions. I am awakened to my wholeness. I embrace and say yes to the new life that is being offered to me. I trust in the dreams of my heart and soul. I nurture and hatch the ideas and plans and passions that have been incubating within. I allow authentic communication to flow...to myself from myself...and from myself to others, and this this transforms my experience of living...new visions, wholeness, health, wealth. I am awakening to a greater vision for life...and my life...of wholeness, health, wealth in all areas.
.
I want you to continue your journey, listening to your heart and soul. Be patient. Give yourself what you need. Make your "self" and your needs a priority...your health, your care, your well-being, your environment inside and out....and all else will be added unto you. I want you to be faithful to your self...and your Self. (This is from the voice of the woman)

What a beautiful card, and your writing on it is so ... elevated. Do you see that card as community or council, I wonder?

Hello sweet friend!

Your interpretation of this card is not only insightful, but very perceptive, as well! I am not yet all that familiar with the art of SoulCollage, but I can see that it is a wonderful practice. You are growing, and with growth comes both change and trepidation. To know, to understand, that you are not alone in your journey is not only comforting, but in many ways, necessary.

Your evolution is unfolding and you are doing such a great job at listening to what you are being told. Stay faithful, my friend, you will receive everything that you need.

Hugs,
Debbie

Cheryl,
When I look at this image it draws me to a place beyond words and yet there they are: like a complete breath-the exhaling giver and the inhaling receiver. May your healing flow and flow with greater ease each day.
