The Ace of Pentacles Meditation
I wrote this meditation quite a few years ago, but it is still very special to me. It has remained for me a visual I return to again and again, especially during the Spring and Summer months. Enjoy!
It is late afternoon. Warm, but not humid. You are sitting in a garden filled with fragrant flowers and large, overhanging, lush trees and vegetation. It is quiet, except for the sounds of the breeze blowing through the trees, the birds singing, and the insects buzzing.
The breeze is cool and refreshing. Reach down to your sides and feel the soil; it is moist and cool, full of life and the potential for growth. Feel it between your fingers and toes, allow its coolness to soothe your nerves; yet, at the same time, there is an energy which courses through the soil; feel it flow into your body, giving its energy to you. You feel empowered and refreshed.
Imagine the image of a Pentacle in your mind. Let it take up your entire field of vision. A living vine intertwines the arms of the pentacle, growing and thriving on it energy. Imagine that the vine becomes lusher; it continues to grow. The pentacle is energy in the form of money and creativity. You are being presented, in this wonderful garden, a crop of creative thoughts and inspirations, and the physical means (financial) to apply them and to reap their benefits. This is an environment of incredible growth; by placing yourself in the middle of it, you ensure that anything you plant here (ideas, inspirations and investments) will quickly manifest into a rich crop (creative achievement and monetary needs). Make yourself a part of that rich soil. Feel the nutrients it gives. Absorb the life it imparts. Become a part of the earth, and it will reward you.
This can be used as a meditation for when you feel down and out, or feel uninspired, or frustrated by monetary concerns. Let me know how it works for you.
