Make a wish

Next week we'll be starting our journey through the chakras, but today we're still working with Isha Lerner's Inner Child Cards.

A well, vessel, or cauldron can hold sacred waters for rituals, blessings, purifications, and healings.

Water is the essence of all life.

The answer to the question of whether the cup is half full or half empty depends on how life is being viewed at a given moment.

This question is being asked of you now.

Along with this question, you may be granted a wish.

In the traditional tarot, the Nine of Hearts is often considered the wish card.

Your wish should reflect what you feel you deserve in life, where your heart is, and how much you love yourself.

Wishing is a way to observe how well you are seeking your individual fulfillment.

Can you accept a happy life?

This is not an easy question to answer, and much care should go into this inquiry. Sometimes wounds of the past must be healed before you can grow into your wish.

Forgiveness of self and others is one step toward greater fulfillment.

The mermaid in this card is holding her vessel toward the waterfall to be filled. She has reached a point of acceptance in her life and is ready to have her cup run over.

Hold your own cup high toward the waters of life and dare to fill it completely.

Imagine the possibility of unlimited love, joy, and wisdom pouring into your heart.

This may be it time for spiritual initiation or purification in your life.

Believe in miracles, and follow your dreams.

The colourful & fragrant gardens of our minds

We'll be starting work on the Chakras on the fist Sunday in November, however until then we will continue with our journey into our selves with Isha Lerner's Inner Child Cards.

There are times in life when we are shown the gateway to new awareness that is beyond our current boundaries or resistance.

This new awareness offers another view of the world that can recapture, or open us to, the magical garden wisdom that lives within us.

It is there that we may learn to master our abilities and gifts.

When the fairy on this card is ready to open the garden gate, she will discover a world of herbs, flowers, and trees that await her arrival.

They will revitalize and heal her. There is an abundance of energy available to her.

The butterflies on the gatepost are the aspects of her soul that are ready for metamorphosis.

She hears the garden calling, and so she peeks.

This is a wondrous time in your life when you may be exploring the secret passages of your spirit or completing an important evolutionary cycle.

There is a rich and flowering place within you.

You must journey there.

Close your eyes and envision yourself entering
the colorful and fragrant gardens of your mind and heart.
What do you see?

Chakra Balancing

I wanted to get a feel from you all this week to see if you're interested in healing and awakening your energy body.

A couple of months ago I bought Anodea Judith's Chakra Balancing Kit. It includes a work book, two audio CDs and Chakra Cards.

We could spend 7 weeks travelling through the Chakras together and journal our experience in our blogs.
You can check it out at Amazon they have new and used copies available. I bought mine from the local new-agey book store.

Anodea Judith has such a wealth of knowledge to share about the chakras - you can even buy the kit directly from her if you wish.

Please let me know in the comments section if you'd like to do this - if so, we can start on Sunday 3 November 2007.

The Butterfly of Transformation

This week we're working with Isha Lerner's Inner Child Cards.

Once upon a time,
I dreamt I was a butterfly...
Suddenly I awoke...
Now, I do not know whether I was then
a man dreaming I was a butterfly,
or whether I am now a butterfly
dreaming that I am a man.

Chuang Tzu (c.360 BC - c. 275 BC)

In this card, a magnificent soul potential in the form of a butterfly is being unveiled by two fairies.

In Welsh mythology, fairies were known as the mothers or the helpers.

These fairies are liberating the spiritual quality of humanity.

There is a connection between the soul and the butterfly in Greek mythology. This stems from the belief that the human soul becomes a butterfly while searching for a new incarnation.

The process of transformation is extremely powerful in our lives as we search for a broad understanding of the future and a gentle surrender to the past.

As we emerge from old wounds, we take on new colors and wear new wings of hope -- much like the butterfly miraculously, unspiraling from the dark cocoon.

This butterfly is released into the light and is offered new conscious awareness. This may very well be happening in your life right now.

The butterfly is an essential emblem of love, suggesting, in China, a wedding of souls.

This winged gift is a reminder today that love, soul unity, and art are fluttering into your life. An inspired rebirth is taking place. It is time to reveal your true colors. The flight has begun.

As you emerge from your cocoon of transformation
note your true colours. What is happening in your life right now?
