Mermaids and DolphinsHere is an angel card to guide your day. I am using my favorite deck, Doreen Virtue’s “Magical Mermaids and Dolphins.” Whenever you may read this, the message is for you now.

Contemplation Time – Spend time alone, meditating upon what you truly desire.

And my reading for you – The word “contemplation” makes me think of meditation. Whenever I see this card, I know that I haven’t been keeping up with my meditation practice. So first of all, find some time to close your eyes and be still and quiet.

A couple of quick meditation tips: If you fall asleep easily, you probably need more rest, but for now, try meditating while sitting in a relaxed but not entirely comfortable position. For me, that would be the lotus position. If you are not in danger of falling asleep, lying down is a great position to use. I have written a simple meditation guide, but I also recommend my friend Spike Gillespie’s book, Sit. Stay. Heal.

And this time, the card also means that you’ve been letting your thoughts of what you like and don’t like, what you want and don’t want, get all muddle up in your mind and your heart. It’s time to get really clear. Once you’ve contemplated, meditated, and sort-itated, write it down. What is it you “truly desire”?

You will find that this is how you make “true desires” come true.
