“Joy comes into the world through gentle means, but springs from a solid inner base. ….that which brings joy into the world is a source of considerable power.”
I Ching 58 Joy
I wave hello with one hand
While holding my face with the other- mirror images-
Isn’t that what it’s all about-
Or is it one image, one pondering?
I want to climb into your lap
And cling to the last vestigages
Of ponderable possibility-
Fonder, I am, more of possibility
“Oh, it’s escape you seek,” says the frog.
“No. I seek wonder,
That moment of ecstasy,
Remedy for hostility
When sheer joy is possible.
I cling to that.”

Thank you for your patience, friends. Regardless of my absence on this page, you have been present to me in spirit. This morning I sat with the I Ching and asked spirit what to share with you, and I received for present #29 Dangerous Depths and for future, #43 Determination. It is great wisdom about taking risks and handling the danger inherent in some situations, especially where evil and negativity underlie human affairs. The following practice is very helpful to me; I hope you find it so.
A Protection Practice for Dealing With Negative Energy
Breathe your body and soul into a relaxed, safe space. The meditations and music on the google play app Insight Timer https://insighttimer.com/ are helpful.
Call upon your personal angels if you know them, and on traditional ones: Raphael, Michael, Gabriel and Ariel. If angels hold no meaning for you, invoke other protectors that do.
Ask them to surround you with divine light, creating a buffer zone of loving protection. Ask them to let nothing pass through this zone, either from you or into you, that is not intended for the greatest good. Imagine the divine light wrapping around you, warming you from inside out around you, before you, behind you, under you.
Rest in that protective embrace for awhile. Make a conscious decision to try to dissipate negative attitudes in yourself before they pass through to others. Sending loving kindness to yourself helps with this most human of struggles.
Throughout your day return to the safety of that light.
Be well, companions.
