I love this comment from the buddha but today being valentine’s day I realized: I do gain something from meditating. I do not know if it is ‘proper’ buddhist to gain from meditation but through meditating I have found love. In my experience all the so called negative emotions either contained love in the core of it or made space for love once dissolved. And today that fills me with gratitude. For the love that is found through meditation is not attached to a specific person or object, it is the state of love that emerges. And in that state I cannot find a single thing that is not to love. So for this valentine’s day I wish you the bliss of love in whatever form or shape it presents itself to you. Love Pearl

When I first started connecting with angels I was so in awe that I hardly dared to ask anything. I was afraid my normal day to day worries where too silly or stupid for an angel to deal with.

I ask for help or just a temporarily rest from my trouble, and they always comfort me.

I decided to take my housewives tarot and pick a card, if only to make myself laugh. I was hoping for a card with the classic advice, to have cocktail and do not shake or stir the murky house waters. No such luck. I got the 6 of wands, which pictures a shiny sink and congratulates the busy immaculate housewife on being pristine and victorious over all the daily chaos.
For those of you who raise children, you know the positive result of setting limits. And the setback of endlessly accommodating your little sweethearts. You need to draw the line consciously or your bundle of joy will force you.

Spend some time on a daily basis to dream about what you want. Imagine how you feel getting it, living it. Make the fantasy outrageous so it makes you laugh.

In a relation this card can mark a a time where you feel save, protected and loved. The dreamy romantic quality of the card is at it best. You feel comfortable with each other. Love flows, building trust and surrender. If you’ve had a rough childhood, these experiences are touched and healed. If only because you’ll be able to allow yourself experiences of happiness and trust that might be new to you. You’ll be open to the tenderness and good intentions that your partner has towards you. A hurtful past influences our ability to trust, we need these positive experiences to learn how trust feels and looks like being an adult. Working with the inner child is very beneficial when this card shows up. It points us to our responsibility to integrate our childhood experiences with our mature self. To loose the naivety and keep a sense of innocence even if we are weathered through walking our path.
