Life is change. Growth is optional. Choose wisely – Albert Einstein

three of wands tarotWands in Tarot are of the minor arcana, they represent fire  – the life force, creativity, spirit. 3’s represent growth, movement and expansion.

Here we see a voyager cloaked in the travel robes standing at the top of a mountain with his back to his past, looking into the distant waters (future).

He has moved from the Two of wands, the stage of intentional focus and activity.  He is now holding on firmly to the third wand. Ready for clear focused action.

We see a bright yellow sky and distant lands. This indicates that he is about to head to a foreign land or to a place he has never explored, somewhere entirely new, full of opportunity.

The 3rd wand is symbolic here, it represents the fire – the will, that is required to move forward. Notice how the two wands of the past are firmly grounded behind him, but not necessary to take with him. He has truly moved from the stage of the two of wands, from the past.

He has reached the top of the mountain and is observing his plans from a larger view. His vision is expansive as he watches the ships come and go (trade, business, movement). He is standing firm and steady which represents the readiness for an adventure into the unknown.

liberation 3 of wandsThis card is infused with a steady sense of liberation. Whatever you have been focusing on is ready for its fruition. It omens success and good fortune, a spring in the step and an energy of confidence in the impending adventures.

This card is often related to travel and new horizons. Yet, one that has the backing of a well established sense of intention and decision making.

In love or relationship, the 3 of wands is a positive affirmation. It symbolises growth and development within the relationship. In an acquiescent and prosperous love relationship a feeling of liberation is ever present. This card signifies a time of expansion within a relationship. It could mean a commitment or a proposition of some kind. A declaration that sets the relationship to higher spiritual level. There is the promise of great happiness in this union.

3 of wands loveIt could literally mean a love formed with someone from a distant land and you are deciding where to go from here. If so it signifies that you will be able to be together. That a decision will be made whereby you will be together.

Alternately, it could be pointing to someone who is unlike anyone you have met previously. Creating feelings or growth that have not been experienced in your prior love relations. Usually a spiritual love. One that gives you the space to expand, express and live deeply in your authenticity. It is a YES card for a love query.

If you have been in or have moved out of an an unhealthy relationship or have been wanting to leave the 3 of Wands is a green light card – It will often omen a person of a different culture – a person who has learned the lessons from unhealthy relationship is here to show you a different way.

In business or projects it often portends success in overseas or foreign trade. It could be referring to a new business, that is foreign to you. But, often it is the go ahead for an opportunity that will arise from a distant land. It is affirming that this will be an opportunity for growth and diversity within your current ambitions.

authenticity 3 of wands

Spiritually the 3 of wands wants you to pat yourself on the back. You will or could be experiencing inner pearls that will be expanding your sense of authenticity and will be seeing tangible results. With the 3rd wand held in your hand, you should be able to experience an integrated sense of fulfillment, Almost as though the wand is magic.

It is not, well it is, but it has come about from the work you have put in since the two of wands met you on your path. The 3rd wand is very much a manifestation of the inner work you have undergone. A tool that you have mastered and now can use to help you move through the new life you have created for yourself. You can trust your inner language, your intuition and your self .

Mindfulness for Success in Life – 6 weeks online course

Mindfulness for success

Mindfulness for positive change online course

Overcome negative thinking,  experience inner peace and begin to create a more prosperous and successful life with this 6 weeks online course.

As many of you may have noticed I have moved away from tarot much since this site began.

It’s funny, as I have begun to undergo my own awakening and self growth and learning through my holistic counseling,  I have found that many people require healing as much as they yearn for guidance through tarot.

This is not to say that tarot does not have its place (I promise my next post will be tarot focused :). I am excited to go through the minor Arcana). It’s more that support and development sometimes requires more.

The tarot is a great tool for guidance but self mastery and healing are being shown to me as  much needed with people undergoing awakening and dissatisfaction in a society that has become empty of heart. And my Dharma/Karma is ever leading me to enrichen my knowledge and practice.

Why Mindfulness?

The purpose of our lives is to be happy. – Dalai Lama

Mindfulness is an enriching process of creating positive life altering changes, that if continued, will effect your well being and life forever. Mind, body and spirit.

Take a deep breath in and be aware of how this idea feels. Breathe into it and be with it. Now let it go.

You’ve done it. Your first mindfulness practice, easy wasn’t it?

Practicing mindfulness Over a few weeks you will deepen your inner connection. You will experience shifts in your inner life, your brain will begin to create new neural pathways, your body will experience healing and repair and your spirit will be lifted (literally).

Mindfulness is an Ancient Buddhist practice that basically means: The ability to focus one’s attention on the present moment. To be aware without judgment and to be with whatever is arising.

It uses the principles of:
relaxation
acceptance
compassion
and surrender to move our minds from the endless chatter into a more peaceful and useful state.

When we become aware of our thoughts we can choose how we respond to them. This is where acceptance comes in – being present to what arises without judgment, just being with it – cultivates acceptance. Acceptance of what is. When we accept what is happening, we begin to disengage the struggle, the resistance, the fight. This is a fundamental principle of mindfulness. It is what opens the pathway to a loving kindness (compassion) for the self, which heals us, and for surrender (letting go).

It is important to note that surrender in Buddhist philosophy does not contain negative connotations that we in the Western world have attributed to it. It means to let go of attachments (of the mind) to something. In this case a thought or a feeling.

We become aware of it – we be with it – we meet it with loving kindness – we let it go.

Most people are living, acting, reacting from their subconscious mind. Mindfulness brings these subconscious thoughts to the surface, so that we can begin to move from a new and better informed place.

Research shows that the brain is elastic, meaning it is able to change. This change occurs through practical measures. By repeating something over and over we change the neural pathways in our brain, we change our subconscious patterns and we begin to create new ones. But this takes time and practice.

Mindfulness  practice that uses techniques that help us begin to become aware and abiding in the present moment. But, we can also take it a step further, to change the negative patterns and behaviours, and bring in more success promoting thoughts and beliefs. By using techniques that create new and transformative mind suggestions so we can begin to manifest success in ways we never thought possible.

The Art of Modern Spirituality

“Megsie’s art work is stunning and unique, it has a raw vibrancy and naivety that is totally captivating” – Dr Sally Adman-Jones.
Arts Educator and Masters in Yoga

An illustrated book of wisdom embracing classic art, philosophy and contemporary spirituality.

Using classic artist’s works – from Van Gogh and Picasso to Frida Kahlo, along with her own sketchings – Megsie creates a pastiche of wisdom that grapples with the suffering and joys of authenticity and awakening to one’s true self in contemporary life and the yoga path.

Giving life to the surrendering and truth, irrevocable on the path,’The Art of Modern Spirituality’, is a candid yet compassionate and often intelligently comical illustration of the dark and light polarities of the modern spiritual path.

full-moon“There is no coming to consciousness without pain. People will do anything, no matter how absurd, in order to avoid facing their own Soul. One does not become enlightened by imagining figures of light, but by making the darkness conscious.”
C.G. Jung

Whilst Mercury makes madness arise in our minds and hearts, as it pivots and pulls in a back-tracking foxtrot across the skies, Pisces full moon comes along and wants to Hip hop with our souls.

It may feel like a live audition of ‘so you think you can dance’, but its actually the final live showdown.

Pisces is ruled by Neptune and is made up of dreamy moves and moods, it likes to pirouette into the great mysterious cosmic soup whilst keeping one foot in the compassionate reality of the trance of the ego.

That’s all fine and dandy, but when the solar lights are beaming upon Virgo, who is still trying to perfect the Earthy ways of the Tango, things can seem a little conflicted on the dance floor.

full-moon-september-eclipseThis full moon eclipse is the Finale of the early eclipses of the year. A culmination of the Adagios, bad moves and/or any ab libing you’ve managed to pass of as truth. Yet, also a new beginning for those who have won the judge’s hearts.

What does all this have to do with Carl Jung and his uttering on darkness, pain and consciousness, we’ve been dancing darling?, you may be saying.

The moon lights up consciousness and when it’s in the sometimes dellusionary, mysterious, intuitive other worldly Pisces it lights up the stage of truth – of the thoughts and feeling that have been directing your path – the story line of your dance.

full-moon-in-piscesIf these have been or are tinged by shadows and past comatose(ing) concepts and beliefs the stage lights will shine on them and you will have no choice but to go live. The rehearsals are over.

There is a lovely possibility that you have been consciously training your consciousness, warming up your soul’s spark, reaching into the choreography of your intuition and, yes – you will hit the light fantastic.

full-moon-september-2016Neptune loves to pull away delusions and light up cosmic rays of truth. It’s also a watery sensitive so will often bring in a beautiful ballet of divine insight that will hold you step by step.

Remember it’s all leading into your true self, your soul, heart, divine destiny. So if your hip-hopping, foxtrotting or still doing the tango, it wants you to show your heart to capture the audiences and the judges attention.

Neptune wants clarity not confounded sidestepping. Move your mind ego out of the way and let your soul rap on into the beloved’s arms.

Be love 🙂

 

 

A meditation to cultivate and attract love

self-love

noun
noun: self-love
  1. regard for one’s own well-being and happiness.

Creating peace and love through Meditation is like forming a deep anD palpable connection with your innermost self. Sometimes you will feel a sense of true inner peace and at other times an ecstatic anticipation and others a stillness and profound sense of truth.

This love meditation cultivates a peaceful resonance of love for self and an energetic flow of unconditional love and fullness of loving vibes, whereby you undergo a healing and a maturation of self love from with in. This will in part, create an inner peace and love, but will also attract to you loving connections in your external world.

It is best used everyday for a month for deep changes with in and out, but can have immediate effects. Don’t be surprised if you find a soul love seemingly fall from the sky – but as always – the work must be done and the love must first come from with in and authentically 🙂

Put your headphones on (as it uses brainwave technology) for a love treat and please enjoy 🙂

“Toto, I have a feeling we’re not in Kansas anymore.”

cosmos april new moon love ritual

 

I’m not going to ramble and fumble my way through a consciousness talk on choices or past verses future,

I’m not going to use parodoxes to explain the nature of reality in relation to the cosmic influences of the planets and Luna energies.

I’m not going to churn out metaphors to direct you towards insights of how love is a verb, a state of being or a musical note.

Instead I’m just going to give you this picture, this mandala to meditate on with a note of assurance that love – true love – is available in nature, in you NOW 🙂
