Falling – gravity as a spiritual lesson

Posted on Apr 4, 2011 in Spiritual living

Falling by Leona De Lioncourt

I’m in danger of sounding like I do nothing but watch TV, but I won’t apologise for watching another excellent TV programme – The Wonders of the Universe.

The subject was gravity, and Dr Brian Cox completely blew me away with this simple explanation of a complex force. Gravity means that absolutely everything is falling into everything else, irresistibly and continually following the curves of space time created by the pulls from all the stars, planets and galaxies in the universe. Gravity is by its very nature both creative and destructive.

The Human (or should that be Nature) Planet

Posted on Feb 25, 2011 in Spiritual living

I watched Human Planet last night – a fantastic BBC TV programme if you get the chance to see it. The series looks at extreme environments on the planet and how humans in those places have adapted incredible and resourceful techniques for survivng within them. Two of the stories really spoke to me personally in this particular programme which focused on rivers.

Letting go to flow

Posted on Feb 2, 2011 in Spiritual living, Tarot

Hanged Man card from the Thoth deckI know that it’s time for change and I welcome it openly, but I’m realising how difficult it can be to allow that change to happen (even when you want it) for all sorts of reasons; fear of the unknown, material and personal insecurity, lack of self-confidence, distrust. I wouldn’t say I’m a control freak – a quick check with the boyfriend confirms I’m not, thank you George – but I know I can still benefit from loosening my hold on how I want things to become, and strengthening my ability to just allow things to be, perfectly.

A life that is free – reading for 2011

Posted on Jan 4, 2011 in Spiritual living, Tarot

The card drawn from my Thoth deck to guide us in 2011 is the ten of wands, and immediately I’m aware that we have moved from a nine in the 2010 reading to the number ten; completing a cycle. The card has a bright orange background against which are set eight criss-crossed wands, dominated by two much larger black wands standing upright in front of them as if to bar the way.

Given the current political and economic situation, the subtitle of this card “Oppression”  seems particularly apt but it is not a card of doom and resignation.

Life without limits – planning flexibly

Posted on Nov 1, 2010 in Spiritual living

As I continue to formulate some long-term and very exciting plans for the future, I have been very aware of how much I can automatically limit myself and the potential outcome of any situation. I’ll show you what I mean. Just think about fulfilling your wildest dreams for a moment or two…………………….now, how quickly did that tiny but oh so influential word “but” make an entrance?

How easy it is with one small “but” to talk ourselves out of starting something at all because it’s not the right time, the money isn’t available or it doesn’t suit the other people around you.
