52 Pick-Up

"It was the best of times, it was the worst of times."  Has Dickens reincarnated or what?  It seems we are all having a "dickens" of a time riding these swells.  They have been anything but swell.  

I don't know about you, but this fall equinox/harvest full moon kicked my butt.  One minute I have a sore gum and then it's gone, or rather the pain shifted to my jaw and sinuses.  My neck feels like I have a cervical collar around it and I have to move my entire body to look left or right.  My mid back needs some serious TLC and then there's the emotional stuff.  Oh joy.  Fear reared its head again over the last couple of days.  How will I survive this insane ride?  Then I am overwhelmed by the feeling of just wanting to go home only I don't know where home is.  If home is where the heart is, I'd better fine mine soon!

In twelve short days, the house I am renting, which is for sale, was viewed, offer made and accepted, and then the buyer changed her mind.  Am I staying or going?  Where am I going?  For a while I thought I was going to Sedona with a friend but my heart tells me no.  Planning even a minute from now is too far into the future.  I'm "planning" to teach Reiki over Columbus Day weekend and who knows?!  October 9th and 10th might as well be a thousand years from now.  What is clear is that the universe is DEMANDING we BE HERE NOW!  Live in the moment ...or else.

I went for an early walk the morning of the equinox.  The full moon still glistened over the calm ocean.  As the sun came up over the mountains behind me, it outlined each puffy cloud in pink.  A boat heading south oddly stopped for several moments in line with the moon and myself.  At that same instant, a huge flock of seagulls flew directly over my head.  It was so powerful.  I thought, things must be lining up for me.  

It seems the universe is playing 52 pick-up with us, but its arranging the cards before they land, lining everything up for us down to the last detail.  Since it is arranging the cards before they land, we can't see what arrangements the universe is concocting for us.  Shuffle, reshuffle, and shuffle again.  Once the cards land, we turn them over one at a time.  Each card contains a clue that leads us to our hidden treasure. 
So when you take your weathered and weary body to bed tonight and before you pull the covers over your head, remember the universe is conspiring for you.  It is taking care of all the arrangements you need to create the life of your dreams.  Sweet dreams.

Glad to know that I am not alone in these exact experiences. Thanks for sharing. As I recall, 52 Card Pick-Up was something of an impish toss the cards up in the air and have someone else pick them back up.....guess the BIG ALL (Universe) is that someone NOW.

"The universe is conspiring for you." This is called 'Pronoia'. Loosely defined as the opposite of paranoia. Like Cait, I am glad I am not going through this alone!

I needed this! Thank you for the confirmation - I thought I was losing my mind. I especially loved the end "remember the universe is conspiring for you." Chaos now can set us up for peace of mind later.
