On Friday, September 15th, while getting ready for my morning walk, I decided while I was out that I would buy some lottery tickets. Since I only had two dollar bills in my 'Queen's Collection' wallet, I decided I would purchase one for Olney Richmond, my walking partner, and one for me.
That day was my personal Jupiter day in my personal Jupiter week in my Jupiter 7-weeks in my Ten of Diamonds♦ Jupiter 52-day period. Wow...what a great time to play the lottery. I wanted to win enough money to pay for everyone to come to Cardology Conference 2017 – enough to pay for everyone's airfare, hotel room, food and other expenses so more people could learn more about this magical system. Sound crazy? Not to a Queen of Diamonds♦, which I am!
Show Me a Sign, Olney, Please!
As I mentioned in the last newsletter, I often think of Olney, age 20, marching in full uniform through my neighborhood during the hot and humid summer of 1864. He was fighting at such a young age, having been told that he would, in fact, survive the war despite his close calls with flying bullets, cannon balls, and even food poisoning.
That Friday morning, I walked and talked to his man about the upcoming conference and my wanting to have more people attend. I asked Olney to please show me a sign that I was not just talking to myself. Any sign would do. Since his card was a Three of Diamonds♦, I asked for him to show me three pennies, nickels or dimes, a playing card, something to do with diamond shapes, or anything that would indicate I'm not crazy talking to someone who passed to the Other Side in 1920.
Needless to say, I was disappointed that Olney didn't show me any of the requested items. I did, however, purchase two lottery tickets and the drawing was that night at 11:00pm and I had as much luck as anyone else in winning. To my great surprise, I won...I actually won...I won $5. I was so excited as I normally don't play the lottery. But that night I had won $5...not enough to pay for everyone to attend the conference but I did win.
Later, it dawned on me that I actually hadn't won $5 because I had spent $2 for the tickets, leaving me with only $3. Wait a minute! In Cardology, money$ = diamonds♦, so $3 = 3♦. Olney Richmond 3♦ was with me and had heard everything I said. The Grand Master of the Order of the Magi showed me in the most magical way that he is with me as I continue to do everything I can to share Cardology with the world.
I don't know why Olney and I didn't win the BIG money that night but I do trust that he is on the Other Side and has the bigger picture of what is in the cards and destined to happen!
Still Walking and Talking with Olney
I have yet to fully understand Olney H. Richmond's "The Mystic Test Book" packed full with fascinating charts and illustrations. I do, however, understand that what has evolved since is the simplest yet most accurate system of self-understanding available today. A system that has completely transformed my life and my understanding of life in general.
As I follow each week in Olney's footsteps down Paces Ferry Road to the Chattahoochee River, I still walk and talk with him and thank him often for his bravery, courage, and determination, not only in living through the Civil War, but also bringing Cardology to all of us here today.
Thanks to Olney, I can write this newsletter to you who has an interest in this ancient mystical knowledge. The sacrifice of my personal time and money are trivial compared to what this amazing Three of Diamonds♦ man went through to share Cardology with you, me, and the rest of the world.
