This one card draw is OPEN CLOSED!

This month, I am having a special fundraiser one card draw. My friends Kelly and Cory, Kelly's daughter Erin, and their four cats were victims of a fire last week. The fire started in their shed. There is extensive smoke and water damage to the house and, unfortunately, their insurance will not even begin to cover it all. I don't expect to be able to make a huge difference, but if we could fund several meals for them, that would be awesome!

As usual, I will be open for roughly 24 hours, so that all time zones have a chance. :) Also, please feel free to donate without asking for a read if you'd just like to help out!

Comment and I will pull a card for you from my original, unique bird oracle deck. Anyone and everyone is welcome! If you are facing a choice, the cards may help point in the most positive direction for you. You may request an overall card to meditate upon. You might want a card to let you know what new thing may come into your life in the near future, or what is the most important thing facing you at this time. You may ask a specific question and we will see how the universal subconscious will answer it for you. However you use this opportunity, I hope it will be helpful!

A quick note: The more detail you give in your request, the better I can interpret the card's meaning for you, which is my role as intermediary, however, even just a general request will get my best effort; it's up to you.

Today, I'm working for donations; please help my friends if you can! I am starting off the fundraising myself today with $40. For every hundred dollars we raise, I will give away one Complex Nest reading. (Winners will be notified by email; only those who donate can win, but donations can be as little as $1.) If we reach my goal of $350, I will send one lucky winner the bird oracle card of their choice. This is the first time I have made this offer; my deck is not available for purchase. You will be the first person besides me to have a copy of one of my cards! Thank you!

Update: Unfortunately, we did not make any incentives. However, every little bit helps! Thanks so much for your support; my friends will have an extra couple of dinners on us!

As always, please see the disclaimer on my profile page. Also, remember that you can purchase a read at any time from that same profile page or from my website!

P.S. I have another friend currently in serious need, so there will probably be another one of these in the near future!

We donated a few dollars. I wish we could send more. The initials are C.W.

I've just recently found family that I wasn't expecting. I'm.. having difficulty adjusting because they're truly accepting of me, unlike my biofam. Some advice on how to stop freaking out would be lovely. -laughs-

Oops. This got lost in my inbox and I forgot to thank you. So here's a very belated thank you. :)

So what's the word for me from the Bird?

From: [personal profile] acelightning
Well, as you know, I'm a tool-user by both training and natural inclination :-)

I told my husband about this, and he said, "You are using your skills!" I'm using skills I didn't even know I HAD - for example, much to my own surprise, I seem to have a flair for interior decorating, as my "Beach House On The Moon" slowly comes together. (I'd just finished doing a lot of tedious shopping online before I left a request, and I had reached the stupid-silly level of tiredness, which is why I linked to that old silly song.)

When things are a little more together, I'm going to post "before and after" pictures (where "before" = "waterlogged heap of debris").

While I apologize that I can't donate to your friend, I would love to know (as acelighting so wonderfully put it) what WORD the BIRD has for me XD

I will indeed! I am working on a signal boost on my LJ site to pull in a couple other folks for you as well

Donated, linking to friends, will also link on Dreamwidth. <3 I much love wrenstarling one card draws. I'm still saving up for a fuller reading, but anything the cards think I need to know right now would be great.

Hmm. I hope it's a symbol of good luck for me, because otherwise I'm a bit stumped. Unless the point is "patience on the job front".

Umm... translation? Interesting though, my friend zeroed in on "Crane also speaks of the emotional transport of dance as well as actual transport". I'm not really sure what that means, emotional transport of dance, but I have had a weird desire to go dancing recently.

Sounds like a good enough course of action.

I will be able to donate on Friday. May I have a card anyway in the meantime?

Thank you! I'm not sure about the losing the connection to humanity so I have to think on it.

Donated! [And just realized I didn't put a dW identifier on the donation. That mystery five bucks is me. :)]

I am having an incredibly hard time right now, and I'm stuck on how to cope and what to do about it all. That's what I'd like to know about. Thank you!

I have all kinds of paperwork and bureaucracy crap to deal with in the near future (that I've talked about on LJ, but other stuff too). I just want it all to go smoothly and efficiently!

I donated and I will make a link in my LJ if I complete today's entry in time before the draw ends. I wish the best for Kelly, Cory, Erin, and the cats!

I was wondering if the birds have any guidance regarding what sort of jobs I should be considering from here . . .

Well, I checked the EDJOIN site and there's a couple Japanese positions open!-- but none in LA /: Of course, the comments about speaking up and being direct could also mean I need to bypass the expected bureaucracy and speak to schools directly . . . (Eek!). Though I do wonder if there are other things language/communication could mean; other teaching, plus my mom sent me a link to a script-writing contest due at the end of the month I was thinking about entering if I could come up with something in time, and I've long been considering starting a public blog. Maybe the terms about fire and bending mean I need to determine passion and seek a not necessarily certain path.

But the NOW/DON'T WAIT detail is especially well-received. I have been struggling about whether to sit tight or start looking for something else immediately, even before I know what Robert will be going.

Interesting that it was so clear. I'm really not confident in my abilities as a translator, especially a year out from Japan and in light of much more competent local competition, but I'll look and see what's there.

Thank you :) I always appreciate the readings you offer (and apologies for the lateness of the donation on this draw, but I hope even the little bit helps) and this one is particular powerful. Lots to contemplate.

I wish I could contribute! :( But I'll light my prayer candle for them! I wish I could do more!

Regarding a question for your oracle, I liked your suggestion, about asking what new thing could come into one's life in the near future. :) So I'd like to ask for a card with that in mind if that's okay! :3

Thank you!!
