Spiritual readings, healing and teaching for soulful living
I was reminded this week how important it is on our development and healing path to set regular time aside from all the “work” this involves, and just allow ourselves to be held by Source.
As well as the benefits of slowing down our busy minds and active bodies, something very powerful happens when we feel and know ourselves to be properly held. We are able to let go, because even for a few moments we know absolutely that we don’t need to support ourselves. Think back to your own childhood or your children, and how a firm but gentle embrace can quieten and soften the most wound up, over-tired, and over-stimulated little one.
The moon and the pumpkin are aglow,
Faces of enigmatic mystery
Suffusing shadows with luminous smiles
As a lure to the liminal.
Draw near to the far
Draw near to the far.
I often say that the best contribution you can make to the health and wellbeing of the planet and of humanity is to heal yourself, to do the inner work on yourself. If you accept that we are all connected and are all one, which I do, then obviously the more light and love you’re able to hold in a clear, healthy system, the more light and love is available to the rest of the whole of which you’re a part.
There is another aspect to this journey,
As I’ve just booked the dates for my next Tarot weekend workshop, it got me thinking about why I love it so much as a powerful tool for spiritual growth.
Although its origins are a bit of a mystery and there are many theories, my personal understanding is this. Ancient knowledge about the true nature of our spirit and human experience has been passed down through the ages from Lemuria through to Egypt, from the Druids to the Essenes and beyond
Don’t hold back the river.
Tug me into the current,
Tow me into the flow,
Show me the float and drift.
Don’t hold back the
Tempt and tangle of riverbed tendrils,
The fret to fight free.
Don’t hold back.
