The Hermit Tarot card

Spiritual work is no different from any other in that at times it is helpful, and even essential, to remove yourself from all the activity and distractions of the world to return more effectively to your centre, and to just “be” with nature and with Source.

The big idea!

Posted on Mar 6, 2013 in Spiritual living

Motorhome adventureTowards the end of 2012 and the beginning of this year I was guided to just sit in the void during meditation, to abstain from active techniques and just to be deeply present. It felt like I was allowing space and time for something life-changing and radical to germinate but I had no idea what.

One of the things that came up for me personally during this time was my overwhelming sense of responsibility and duty.

The Underground Stream: Esoteric Tarot Revealed

Posted on Feb 25, 2013 in Book reviews, Tarot

The Underground Stream by Christine Payne-TowlerIf, like me, you’re primarily an intuitive Tarot reader and tend to avoid the older decks, this book will open up a whole new avenue of appreciation and interpretation for you.

I’ll be honest and say that it’s not the easiest, lightest read in the world. The author, Christine Payne-Towler, is a serious Tarot researcher and scholar of many years and this is apparent immediately just by the size of the book. It looks like a text book and almost demands to be laid open on a desk and pored over intently, not curled up with casually on a sofa (although I did take the latter approach occasionally with the result of aching arms)!

I think it started (as did my in depth spiritual journey if you’ve seen my About page) with reading Women Who Run With the Wolves by Clarissa Pinkola Estes.

Adjustment Tarot card

This card shows the lesson of the Chariot well-learned, in that you have perfected that state of inner calm and centredness so well that you’re literally able to balance on your toes on the tip of a sword!

It is at this point that you can begin to understand and work with the idea of karma – universal justice. You recognise that the energy you put out into the world is given back to you, whether positive or negative. Everything you think, say or do has an effect and whatever you think, do or say to others will have the same impact on you eventually because, in truth, you are not separate from “the other”.
