In the Eye of the Storm


I had a dream. I was at a Tupperware party. There was Cindy Lauper kind o' gal giving tarot card readings , but when she came to me she was reticent knowing I was psychic, she shyly asked me ,” Do you want me to pull a card for you?, ”Of course I said!” I had no judgment of her talent or use of cards, she was warm and I was in a party atmosphere, even if it was Tupperware.

The card was white with red and black lettering. It was the Queen of Hearts, but there were diamonds and spades around the Queen, signifying difficulties.
She then looked at me and said, “You seem to be in the middle of a storm, what is it about storms that you like?”
I was filled with joy as I realized I always loved the rain the thunder the flash of lightening, and as child even in a hurricane I felt safe, so I said ...

“It is the ability to be safe despite the swirling storm outside of me”

My life flew by me like Dorthy Gales' vision of all the things she loved and feared swirling around her when in the eye of the storm.
I remember her reacting to everything she saw but never did she run away.

She rode that bouncing bed, landing her right in the middle of OZ....

... on top of the witch...

....the beginning of her transformational odyssey.
It is our job to be safe no matter where we are, to be OK during the storm, and perhaps even enjoy the ride.
