Tarot for Self-Transformation by Sahar Huneidi

During December of last year, I was invited by my friend and colleague, Nathalie Khalaf, to give a short introductory workshop in Dubai on Tarot, before her main workshop on creating vision boards.

I looked for a link between the two subject natters to make my introduction relevant to her subject; and it dawned on me it is the visual images of the tarot deck.

When creating a vision board, you go through magazines and you select images that convey what you aspire to create- a picture is worth a thousand words. Well, that is exactly what the Tarot cards do- the other way around! The images portrayed in a tarot deck contain numerous symbols that when you look at them, they provoke or inspire guidance in the form of a story.

The story that the Tarot cards tell, is that of the Fool, the first card which carry number zero; depicting his journey of transformation from zero to hero. The last card of the tarot story is The World, where the Fool, having understood life and gained wisdom from his experiences, armed with his logical thinking, skills he has acquired (the magician) as well as his innate intuition (the high priestess); has now “owned” his life, fulfilled his life’s purpose and his consciousness has evolved. The world is now his oyster (the world).

The tarot tells the story, my story, your story, of self-transformation through trials, tabulations and victories through the character of the “Fool”; who starts his life, like you and me, with a blank canvas, taking risks – some good others bad.  He then grows, matures by going through experiences and having to make decisions and interacting with others.

These experiences, if seen understood and seen from the right perspective, shape his character and allow him to evolve further. If not, they tend to repeat themselves, all be it on another level, until he does. The Minor cards, which are the remaining 56 cards, show more details of the Fool’s state of mind, emotions, inspiration and his ability to develop skills that allow him to express his life purpose.

In a way, the Tarot does predict what happens to the Fool on his journey; but for me they are about what is beyond divination – they can guide you through the pitfalls of life and inspire you to reflect and become aware of what cycle of the journey you are going through and how to arrive at your destination.

Isn’t it wonderful that Fool is able to show us that so we can learn from his journey and become aware of what ours is about through a creative, visual process that unravels your mind, expands your perspective and challenges your understanding?

That is what I teach now – Tarot for Self-Transformation. An insight into what you are going through is much more valuable than a prediction. It can transform your understanding and your life in turn. My “star students” are now on level 2, and I am encouraged by requests from various clients to offer the course as an online webinar. In the meantime, I will soon be starting Level 1 with new intake. Email me if you are interested.

Guardian Energies of Place: What Do They Feel? by Tim Walter

Guardian energies of place can be engaged in conversation just like a human being. We can have conversations with any of them, if necessary using dowsing. They are always willing to share their perspective on their awareness and seem to view our questions with patience and acceptance. They are after all, an aspect of the overall collective consciousness just like us, but they are being expressed in a different dimension that overlaps ours.

Thoughts for Today: Quantum Science, Astrophysics & Orgonomy

| by Michael Mannion

Apollo 14 Astronaut Edgar Mitchell, Walter Schemp (one of the key creators of fMRI technology) and others are describing a process in nature they call the quantum hologram (QH) which has opened a new field of science, “quantum holography.” In their description, all animate and inanimate objects in nature are emitting radiation as groups of photons–which they call quantum holograms—that contain information about the life history of the objects emitting them. You can find the details of this work at the website of the Dr. Edgar Mitchell Foundation for Research into Extraterrestrial and Extraordinary Encounters, www.experiencer.org.

Transforming 4th Dimensional Bodies into 5th Dimensional Beings: Finding the Portal/Gap to Bring about Transformation by Bear Walker

| by Bear Walker

“I was blessed to grow up with the master of ancient wisdom my grandfather, an Anishanabe Elder. His simple wisdom and insight were a huge part of my early training and he never tired of my constant questions… I learned of the sacred teachings of the Medwiwins in the Anishanabe tribe. The closest name or word for Medwiwin in today’s language would be Shaman. So my beloved Grandfather taught me the ancient ways of the medicine wheel which are the basis of all our teachings.”

Realizing the Transpersonal Self by Paul Mulliner

If we take a focus of attention inward regularly, we can realize intuitively that our conscious awareness, rather than being separate from the world as it seems to be, exists as a field of consciousness everywhere in all space. We can discover that awareness doesn’t just exist inside our own head but also extends into the space inside and around all of us, as a field-self or non-local self that we all participate in. This spatial consciousness extends throughout the Universe and is aware everywhere within itself. Inside each one of us, it’s providing a conscious awareness which is experienced through the context of our human eyes, ears and touch.

Within this awakening, we gain access to our deepest inner resources for living, healing, and coping with stress.

The Quest – Chronicle One by Peter Quiller

Chronicle One begins… Being My Search for the Round Table These are strange, restless times when, in the words of the late Joseph Campbell: “We have no modern myths to sustain us.” Many of us live greedy, fragmented lives, devoid of any direct contact with nature, the numinous or the divine. We are often dissatisfied, or disaffected, forever in pursuit of elusive Eldorados. Why? Whatever made us this way? Sociologists and psychologists blame it all on the Industrial Revolution – the age of the machine. Certainly, science has been doing its best, since the Age of Reason, to make mythology irrelevant, and the Christian church, in turn, has made God appear to be against Nature. As a direct result anything natural or mythological has been viewed with the gravest suspicion and frequently derided in public, certainly during the course of the twentieth century.
