Who we come from
It has been fifteen years since the second of my two grandfathers passed away. About five since both my grandmothers died rather suddenly, a few months apart from one another.
The women had the fortune of fostering a friendship: They enjoyed meeting regularly at a restaurant in my hometown, where they would discuss, among other things, one of their favorite topics — their grandchildren.
Though the physical connection to our ancestors may seem gone, their lessons and memories can still sustain us.
Memories as fertile soil
The connection between land and legacy is a rich, old one.
I associate gardens with my grandparents, particularly. My paternal grandfather grew cucumbers and distinctly-flavored radishes, and more, and my other set of grandparents bought his produce long before my parents began to date.
My grandmother kept roses and peonies and gave us bulbs that blossomed into purple iris that smelled like grapes.
It may never be simple or easy to lose a loved one, but with some reflection, you can relocate yourself in the space of memory. And in those moments, you may find a way to honor your ancestors: with radishes and roses.
What ideas and attitudes so you tend, and how may you work with your ancestors to cultivate your efforts?
I offer a practical tarot or tea leaf reading that considers these questions. It also looks at what your reward may be for this work as it ripens, and any hidden gems — or weeds — in your own garden.
Please note that opening your mind and heart to messages from my readings may help you feel connected to those who have died, but I hold no degree in counseling and do not use Tarot, tea leaves or any other tool to communicate with the dead.
I feel my readings can help in the grieving process and generate new growth.
