Once seven “venerable bishops” came to visit Brigid. Brigid’s cook told Brigid that they did not have any refreshments to give the bishops. But Brigid was able to milk her cows three times in the same day. Each time the cows gave three times the amount of milk what they normally gave. Finally all the pails of Leinster overflowed. Created was what nowadays is called the Lake of Milk.
These are the questions for the cards:
1.Whom/of what do I have nothing to offer when they come visiting me? The card can show people or aspects of myself or others. It can be someone or something I really like; it can also be someone I dislike or it can be a shadow aspect of myself.
2.How can I follow in Brigid’s footsteps, and ‘milk my cows’, in such a way that a lake of milk could be created, in other words that there is more than enough.
3.The result (read the card positively)
The card that I read tonight is lying on my desk for ages. The spread consists of three cards and have pulled an extra card with the question: “What to work on?”
My last card, the second, was Four of Pentacles, drawn for the question: “How can I follow in Brigid’s footsteps and create a lake of milk?” I found this a difficult card, and therefore I pulled the extra one with the question “What to work on?”
Another pentacle, and a double four. I must say, I was relieved seeiing this card. The apprenticeship character of the card is on the forefront in the essay in the book, but that was not what I met, looking at the card. I saw someone working with concentration, integrity and honesty.
It said to me that I do my job, and that I need to appreciate what I make and do. That is the work needed to create the lake of milk.
Need to go to sleep now. I hope Bridged will bless me with a healing dream this holy night.
