Another Sunday, another day of sunflowers and sage — the sage, if we have to balance the energy; the sunflower, to shine a light on all the sunny moments in our lives, amplifying them, making them more, calling in more.

Since yesterday while drinking my morning coffee, I asked the ideas bringers, what were we chatting about tomorrow?

Me: “You guys got me started on some Sunday conversations story, so we better have a story for tomorrow.”

Look in your coffee cup, look at the remains, the dregs. What do you see?

I almost passed out. I was to read message from the dregs of the cup? Well, well, what trouble were we going to cause?

Incidentally, the week before I ‘accidently 'clicked on a YouTube video and the presenter was doing a reading, she referred to it as reading tea leaves. I looked in the cup while she was speaking and I had not the slightest clue where she was seeing what she was talking about. Then it dawned on me, she was tapped into the energies and reading and sharing intuitive message.

I realised.

Anything can be used as a tool of divination — tarot cards, chopsticks, or coffee dregs; as long as the reader was tapped into the right energy, the answers will come. That is how it works. We are all one consciousness.

Looking into my cup, I saw a dragon coming out of the heavens and it was hovering over what I took to be the planet earth. It was not a happy looking dragon and appeared to fight. Perhaps you, reading this piece, have some dragon to fight, hoping to slay.

What is your dragon? Mine is impatience.
