Finding Your Inner Oomph

When a disconnect is felt in your Spiritual Life, it can be daunting to find out the reason behind it. We are always full of questions, we are always looking for the ultimate reasons behind why or why not our chosen Paths work and we are questioning our selves and the way
we have been practicing – or not practicing as the case might be. To find the answers to the above, the first thing I do is not to put a lot of thought into the questions as that just perpetuates the cycle of 'what ifs' inside my head. And then, I do things
that are seemingly not connected to anything I am over-thinking and it in turn, leads me to ways back to inspiration. To go outside is one of the best things we can do for ourselves for many reasons. I know I do not do this enough, so this is a work-in-progress topic for me. Go, at least on your back patio,
during the moon cycles (especially New and Full) and jot down what you feel.
Take walks when the nights are cooler and enjoy the night sky and the …

The Wheel of Fortune

Image
Life is a series of ups and downs, ins and outs, the good and the bad, and so much more. You get the point. The thing about life is that so many people really believe that they have it 'under control'. But life has this funny way of being unpredictable. It can throw you a curve ball and before you know it, you're heading North when you thought you were going South.

There is a difference between having it under control and having it together. When they claim control they are not allowing for the good changes or all changes in general. People in control are often rigid and un-moving and thrown off course and angered greatly when something different is thrown their way. They live their lives planning for the future and always looking ahead at what should be done next and they never fully enjoy life.

People who have it together go with the flow. They can take life as it
comes and enjoy the quality of daily moments as they happen. They live life one grateful day at a time. The…

The Hanged Man

Image
There is such a calmness about choosing to hang out. There is a wonder in seeing the world from a different angle. When there is a freedom from everything carried on a daily basis, and the view is flipped, there is such a sweet release and a moment of deep breaths. 

This all leads to a quiet understanding that this is the break that has been a long time coming.

The enlightenment received from being at peace and being happy by going against the grain is about the best there is. There is such a relief because finally things are being let go and it is okay to do so. Also, things are being looked at from a different angle and problems can often be solved faster because of this.

So I am learning – to leave the past in the past. I am learning it is going to be okay and my world will not end if I just release the hold. Resistance to being off the hook is strong but I have determined that I am stronger.

Anne Partain put it beautifully. And it was a major A-ha moment for me. “I think letting g…

The High Priestess

Image
She knows me. She knows the way. I feel her coursing through my soul. I know her in my heart and I feel the gentle guidance she provides. There is a sense of calm as she leads me to a quiet spot. I am ready to listen and sit in anticipation. Breathing – one, two, three. And again – one, two, three.

The scroll unravels and I feel her presence. She wants me to understand what I feel more than what I see. I feel contentment on my path. I feel the correct path has finally been placed in my way. Spirit surrounds me and cushions any setbacks I might have. Life is leading me down the thoroughfare of words. And surrounding me with success. And support from my family, friends and more.

I feel and know security is going to encompass my home, my heart, and my soul. I am to be protected. From anything. From everything. Even from nothing. I see that the stillness and the solace sometimes is part of this journey. Heck, sometimes this IS the journey. And I smile. Because she smiles. She knows I unde…

A Lesson In Balance

Image
Love. Courage. Assertiveness. Uniqueness. Truth. Understanding. Silence. Stability.

If we are not in balance in life, life can throw us off course to teach us how to be.

So, what is balance?

The dictionary states that it is 'the even distribution of weight enabling someone or something to remain upright and steady'.

I define balance as keeping all of my emotions, projects and relationships in healthy shape by willpower and positive living.

The tarot card, Temperance, is in itself something to be practiced.. Meaning in moderation, passions are great to pursue but must not be allowed to be in charge. So it all comes down to balance.

One of the gifts that temperance bestows on us is the freedom to enjoy the things we love. For me, that looks like a life of writing, creating graphics, watching my shows, cuddling my family and speaking to my friends.

To balance it all out, however, I have to remember to take some time out for quiet meditation and time alone with my thoughts.

A Soul Contract

My spiritual growth at times can be at a standstill. And this happens due to me, it's my fault. I become overwhelmed with the silliest of things. Whether I feel no inspiration or finding moments lost in a number of distractions, I end up feelings lost because I have not checked in with what is important to my very soul. I am going to own up to something: I let those things take over my priorities and I cause my own growth to slow down. I find myself spending the time on social media or caught up in hours of videos, shows or movies. This then leads to lost time and no time is saved to do things like writing, meditating or reading. I have now reached a point in my journey where I know the value in the moments of silence, the moments of looking inward and the moments of reflection. These are the moments that are the most genuine and lead to growth and love of self.  I will acknowledge that my starlight is not shining the brightest when I allow these distractions to take over.  I hav…
