Ganesha Cards #25: Be Candid

from Angela Hartfield’s Whispers of Lord Ganesha

It is essential to express your truth even at the risk of standing out.

Express your thoughts! “In the past, you have tried to maintain peace by staying quiet or swallowing your words. Have faith that open and honest communication can bring resolution to the situation.” This is a time to ask questions if you require information. Perhaps someone has helped to communicate a moment of clarity. Be open to others’ views, regardless of their position. Let your response and emotions flow without blocking them–recognize how you feel and what you have heard. Say what you need to say.

However, try your best not to come across as harsh or uncaring. Take a beat. Nine thoughts to a single word. Your ideas are valid and so are the feelings and thoughts of those to whom you communicate.

The color teal is used in this image and represents the throat chakra which governs listening and speaking. It is the gateway to higher spiritual realms. This makes sense if I relate it to chanting Nam Myoho Renge Kyo. When this chakra isn’t blocked you have a better chance of not being misunderstood or miscommunicate your position. “This is where you are able to express yourself as a spiritual being.” Communicating from the heart and listening with intent to understand. You are also able to ask for what you want and need from others.

Your relationships are based on true communication and true intimacy.

Quills: Writing Angry

What did people do, so long ago, when they got heated by information they heard? Did they write a letter like a post on Facebook? Did they say “Ay, me, I must write this! And henceforth, slowly ruin my reputation.” During this insight, do they reach for a quill and jam it into the inkwell…only to break the tip.

The tip! How will the angry letter be written. In blood. With fingers unguided by feather.

Sure you’re like it’s *olden days* but there must be more quills. No there are no more quills. This is olden days and we don’t have that kind of money, time or birds. But there is enough for one quill and an inkwell to write an angry letter about our feelings.

How long are you willing to wait to have it received? Who cares! You broke the only proper writing utensil at your disposal. Okay say you have two. You’ll break that one too. Now there’s nothing to write with and no one left with sense enough to write.

Ganesha Cards: #31 Decision

From Angela Hartfield’s Whispers of Lord Ganesha

Consider all of your options to make an informed choice

There are some questions Angela poses. What exactly do you want in this situation? Are you satisfied with the way things are moving in your life? Ganesha is guiding you to know that your desires are within your sights. As they say “the odds are in your favor.”

The decision is not clear cut. It is to determine whether you should stick with what you know or break out and try something new. This might be a time for going into the unknown and seeking a new adventure or making a decision that is alternative from the trends or habits you usually engage.

Focus on your goal. Make a clear determination and you will be gifted with a greater understanding of who you are and what you’re capable of creating. Be prepared for the change that comes.

This also requires you to take time to rejuvenate. Treat yourself! The simple things that bring you joy will help you discover the new activities that can take you away from routine. Appreciating the smaller things from day to day may help you become more decisive.

Become strong minded. This will allow you to create the opportunities you want to reflect your long-term goals. You’ll put yourself in a better position to plan ahead and ensure you achieve your goals. Confidence is your new benefit.
