Addiction in all its forms along with the illusion of control are indicated by this combination which I have to admit I can neither remember if it’s been drawn before nor whether I have previously utilised the title… non of which is important because each time cards from The Intuitive Chalice Oracle are drawn, so too is fresh energy and a new approach.
Pulling together Principle 3: I AM Human with the intensity of the yellow solar plexus we find ourselves the victims of unseen, unknowable changes drifting, even hurtling towards us on an energetic level and causing a momentary panic beneath the surface of a refined and dignified exterior. The thing about energy is that we become aware of it way before our eyes register evidence of it and the awareness is felt in the gut… the solar plexus, hence gut feeling. Panic ensues when we cannot rectify the feeling with the facts and so anxiety takes over and the mind does somersaults imagining outcomes to scenarios that in your material world have not yet even shown up…
Ok so that’s the ‘why?’, let’s look now at the ‘what?’…
Control is an illusion. The world is going to do what the world is going to do, right? So what do you resort to? “If I can’t control what’s coming I can at least numb myself to it in some form or another”… Well now, what’s your drug of choice? Cigarettes? Food? Shopping? Gambling? Extreme Sports? Mary J? Narcotics? Shit, the world is full of distractions to control the uncontrollable but this reading isn’t about the relapse into unhealthy addiction, it’s the tendency towards repetitive self-abuse that putting your foot on this slippery slope will lead to. ‘I AM Human’, gives you a heads up that making the mistake of taking a self destructive first step does not mean you might as well take the second and the third… The massive pizza you demolished last night is not a reason to drag out the pity party and scream “oh well, I’ve fucked up, I might as well eat cream buns for breakfast!” The control over your environment you were seeking can really quickly become an inability to even control yourself when this combination turns up… so what should we do?
Throw love at it. Lavish love upon yourself. Forgive the transgression and climb back on your respective wagon… but that energy of change is still flooding toward you and your solar plexus is twitching like a junkie needing a fix.
How do you know that this change isn’t the best thing that could ever happen to you? Start telling your new story like a love story with you as the leading role. You are a hero and the energy flowing towards you is an invitation to begin a new adventure. The yellow in that solar plexus should be joy, not fear, and being your seat of personal power, when the Grail offers up Principle 3, the very real human part of you should grab a hold of the divine and celebrate an opportunity to experience pure exhilaration as only a human being can.
