Last night I had a discussion with my friend and colleague Dr. Doris Cohen (author of Repetition: Past Lives, Life, and Rebirth, Hay House 2008). She told me about a dream she had just had—about me. I was wearing a garland of flowers around my head. And I took six of the flowers off my head—one by one—and set them, ritually, in a bowl of scented oil. I placed the final flower between my breasts.
So, we were going back and forth about the meaning of the numbers six and seven. And Doris suggested that I refer to the numbers in tarot to see what their meaning was. I turned to a book I’ve had on my shelf for over 20 years, but have never read. It’s called Meditations on the Tarot: A Journey into Christian Hermeticism (you know, just your average bedtime reading). I didn’t find out much about the numbers six or seven. Though both Doris and I decided that we’d go with the fact that the world was created in six days and on the seventh, the Creator rested. This relates to me in that it’s time for me to work a bit less and rest a bit more.
As I was browsing through my tarot book, (which was translated from the original French with an anonymous author), I came across the following information about Guardian Angels. And I found it so useful, I thought I’d pass it along.
“An Angel who has nothing to exist for is a tragedy in the spiritual world. Therefore, dear Unknown Friend, think of your guardian Angel. Think of him when you have problems, questions to resolve, tasks to accomplish, plans to formulate, cares and fears to appease! Think of him as a luminous cloud of maternal love above you, moved by the sole desire to serve you and to be useful to you.” (page 379, Meditations on the Tarot, Amity House, Amity, New York, 1985.)
I myself have always believed in angels. But I forget to call on my Guardian Angel regularly for help, inspiration, and healing. This was a reminder to me to call on the help that is so freely given. And so I’m reminding you too!!!
