Connecting to the higher self – reading for 2012

Posted on Jan 2, 2012 in Spiritual living, Tarot

I can’t believe we have finally reached the long-awaited 2012, and I look forward to the new order and hope that this year promises, where the spiritual values of love, compassion and unity are at the heart of all life on this planet.

The card drawn from my Thoth deck to guide us in 2012 is The Hanged Man. Suitably we have a major arcana card for this great year, which means that there are important spiritual lessons to be learned and applied by all of us – this will be a year of spiritual evolution. It also means that there are strong spiritual energies at work in all our lives and so at times it may feel as if things are out of our control.

The Law of Giving by Belinda Paton

The Law of Giving by Belinda Paton

I’d already had the idea of writing about giving as it seems very appropriate for the time of year and then to confirm this was right, as often happens with me, I was told of an interesting comment someone had made: “I’m not giving any money away for nothing as it only leads to resentment.” What makes someone feel this way? It’s an interesting viewpoint and it’s obviously the result of real life experiences. But it made me wonder how this same person would respond to a gift of money, because it’s true that the best givers are also those who are best at receiving.

Overcoming fear and finding your strength

Your personal lizard of fear

I love that poem by Marianne Williamson that begins “Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us.”

But what does that mean? How can we be afraid of our own strength and why would we avoid it? Our strengths can often be hidden in our weaknesses, covered over and cleverly disguised by past hurts and fears of being hurt again in the future.

Balancing act – creating as giving

River stones balanced by an anonymous artistI am so lucky to live here in the heart of Wales and to be surrounded by natural beauty at all times. But over the last couple of years I, along with all the inhabitants of this small market town, have been treated to a more surprising symmetry.

On my daily walk with my dog Jester along the banks of the river Wye, I suddenly began to notice the occasional appearance of fantastic sculptures. They were of natural stones, balanced on top of each other in seemingly impossible ways that defied gravity.

Communicating with your inner child

Semele Xerri as Lady Capulet in Romeo & JulietRehearsing and performing Romeo and Juliet with the Willow Globe Company has, as ever, brought important life issues to my attention. I am playing Lady Capulet and I admit it was a bit of a challenge to “find” her in rehearsals. Our directors Phil and Sue are fantastic and always say we don’t have to worry about that but let the words speak for themselves – and they really do. Shakespeare is amazing at packing acres of character and information into a couple of lines.
