The Daily Draw: The Sun, Reversed

The Daily Draw: The Sun, Reversed

The sun, reversed: You might feel like you’re running out of steam more easily, or are generally low on energy. It’s possible this relates to the energy drain one feels when the nights are getting longer, the days end too soon and it starts to really get cold, what with the clocks going back and … Continue reading

The Daily Draw: Five of Wands, Reversed

The Daily Draw: Five of Wands, Reversed

My apologies. I warned you I’d be inconsistent, but not even I thought I’d go missing for the better part of a week. Put it down to being over extended and emotionally exhausted. Five of Wands, Reversed: You know that BZZZZZZZZZZZZZ energy when the TV is on in one room, the radio is on in … Continue reading

What I am inspired to write on a given day about the tarot card I’ve drawn today. (yes, I know I changed the name. This series is a work of progress, much like myself.)

Shall we get started?   Tarot nine of pentacles: The raw talent is there, and you’ve … Continue reading

The Courage to be Wrong

The Courage to be Wrong

I was bathing my five year old son over the weekend when he suddenly grabbed his leg with one hand and foot with the other, crying out that he had a cramp. I reacted immediately to do what I could to ease his pain, which in this case involved a combination of massage and Reiki. … Continue reading

Forgive

Forgive

Forgiveness means being able to let go of hurt and pain you’ve endured in the past. Forgiveness means refusing to spend any more energy dwelling on the past and the emotional baggage that you’ve collected on your journey from there to here. Forgiveness may or may not have meaning for the person you are forgiving, … Continue reading

Be Yourself

Be Yourself

One of the greatest challenges we face in our development is self-discovery, finding out who we are, being ourselves. We start off innocent children. Inevitably, we encounter people who want us to conform, beginning a power struggle that will follow us throughout our lives at home, school, church, peers, the workplace, etc. Socially, the world seems … Continue reading
