When Brigid was young, she was once sent to help the dairymaids with milking of the cows. The milk would be made into butter for the household. Brigid milked her cows and gave all the milk away to the poor people living in the neighborhood. Then the maids began with churning the butter and Brigid did not have any milk to give them. She prayed for abundance. And what happened? The butter increased to twice as they had expected! Brigid took the extra butter, and gave it to the poor, just as she had done with the milk.
1. What do I produce, do, make, or earn to nurture myself and my family?
2. Who are the poor and needy in my neighborhood whom I care about? These could be real people, but also aspects or attitudes in myself or in others.
3. How much do I give away from what I produce or receive (1)
to the poor and needy (2)?
4. The household. This can be aspects in me.
5. My prayer for abundance
6. The result
Today I have read the card for the first question: What do I produce, do, make, or receive (money) to nurture myself and my family?
My card is the King of Cups from the Victorian Romantic Tarot.
The King sites at the head of the table. I work with groups. That is how I earn an income.
Later, when I already had posted this entry, I thought that in addition to the income I also produce fun and laughter, create possibilities for insight, and sometimes I help people on their way in their lives.
