Follow your bliss

My first thought on seeing a princess reading a story to an elderly person in a chair is not 'Passion', so here we go again with the Chakra Wisdom Oracle (Watkins 2014).

This card is orange (my favourite colour) and that is the colour of the sacral chakra, 2nd chakra, the passion and pleasure centre. This is the seeker of pleasure, enjoyment, sensuality, satisfaction.

Card title: Passion
Phrase: 'I quietly sizzle and shine.'
Legend:  Princess Amber loves looking after her subjects to the point that when the royal family tell her to stop behaving like this, a general election is held and she is voted leader of the people.
Key ideas: Following your passion, being authentic

So the princess's passion is service. Each to his own! I suppose a message of the card is to 'follow your bliss' even if it defies expectations of friends and family, or even if it defies commonly held notions of what 'passion' means.

I suppose this could be applied to the sort of holiday we are passionate about. We love booking self-catering cottages near national trails, in the most secluded areas we can find, and tramping around the coast or countryside all day, going back to the cottage for a hot bath, some yoga or meditation, a movie or two on DVD, a dinner I make myself and an early night. Not everyone's idea of bliss, but we love it.

Live your dream, whatever it may be!

  1. For me, there's also a possible message that if you bring passion to what you do, it will be service - working in a heart-centred way.
    Anyhow, hope you're having a wonderful holiday, however you choose to define that!

    1. Yes, there is that too. :) I was thinking about holidays because that's what I was preparing for. x There are many messages here about 'bliss'.
