This week, I decided to go with a Lenormand deck. It’s an interesting one, self-published by Kerry Gummersall, with illustrations by Heather Strahan, called Destiny is Brewing: A Lenormand Oracle. Each image is connected with a teacup in some way, and the book gives tea leaf meanings for the cards (which seem related to near and far Lenormand readings) as well as straight up Lenormand interpretations.
Brainstorming on these cards gives me the following:
Opportune guidance regarding health suggests new boundaries.
Spirit provides some luck in relation to health, a new sense of rootedness, though it may be a winding path to get there.
A little “poison” brings new clarity regarding health.
The first of these feels most appropriate to me, personally. Given how much work I’m doing at the moment on healthy eating (with a webinar coming up next Wednesday 29th July), I hope that some of this guidance will suggest new boundaries for people that help improve their health.
It’s not just for other people, either. I’m always looking for information to help me make better eating decisions, too. Like a recent article that suggested if you have “dessert” (read anything with sugar, from my perspective) at any time of day, the best time is in the morning. Pretty counterintuitive, given the old idiom of “start as you mean to go on”. Still, I’m finding it works for me, having some sweetened granola for breakfast. I thoroughly enjoy my breakfast “treat” and I’m fine to go the rest of the day without any sugar – score!
