The Element of Uncertainty

Many years ago I used to make a living reading the Tarot cards, and teaching others how to do it. Coming from a long line of psychics, I grew up watching my Mum give readings from tea leaves and cards as well. Early on my mother taught me that people want to hear about their love life, their houses, their kids and their careers. Not only that, but she also said, “People want to hear certainty and specific outcomes — When will I get a promotion? What is the best house for me?” I found that while I enjoyed helping people, I felt the burden of responsibility for not misguiding them or being so directive that they ignored other possibilities.

I, too, started out doing the same sort of readings as my mother. Over time, I progressed to a different analysis of the cards. I decided that we weren’t doing the client any favors if we were telling them how to live their lives. It was as if by making predictions, we were disempowering them by taking away their ability to choose what would happen. What if there were several possibilities, many of them good, and the client needed to make her own choice about what she wanted? My mother would see several outcomes in the cards, and encourage the person to focus and make an effort to bring about a satisfactory choice. I, on the other hand, would involve the client in interpreting the cards in a way that engaged their conscious, their subconscious, and their higher self to provide their own answers.

This led directly to teaching my clients how to read their own cards and empower themselves. As they learned the meaning of each card and how to interpret on the material and spiritual level, they grew more confident, both in their predictions and in how to consciously co-create the future that they desired. In this way, they were responsible for their own lives, their own choices and their own power.

The Art of Chi-Flow: My Experience Studying With Master Mantak Chia by Merryn Jose

| by Merryn Jose

Merryn Jose writes about Master Mantak Chia and her own experience learning, as a student, various methods created by Mantak Chia that safely works with the body’s chi-flow. ” Mantak Chia was taught Kundalini Yoga and the Buddhist Palm, which enabled him to eliminate blockages of flow of life force in his internal organs. However, he felt that Kundalini Yoga produced too much heat, and could be dangerous, so he later combined it with elements of Taoist practice, which had cooling effects.”

An Alternative Path to Overcoming Multiple Sclerosis

| by Merryn Jose

A dear friend of mine suffered from Multiple Sclerosis and I watched her physical decline for years before she sadly passed away in 2013. This was so distressing to me, that when I first saw this TED talk from Dr. Terry Wahls, on her miraculous reversal of this terrible disease, I was enthralled. I immediately wanted to know more and started researching her story. A medical academic at The University of Iowa, Wahls was 45 when she was diagnosed with MS. Her health declined rapidly, and within a few years she was in a wheelchair. In a recent article, she wrote, “Despite taking the newest drug therapies available, by 2007 I was at my worst. I couldn’t even sit in a regular chair for more than 10 minutes because I was so weak. I had brain fog, severe fatigue and it was very hard to walk even a very short distance. It was around that same time, over 10 years ago, that I started reading the basic science about nutrition and MS, and I began experimenting…

Looking at Sacred Geometry

| by Merryn Jose

I had a startling vision a couple of decades ago that led me to research Sacred Geometry. When I did, I was astonished to find that the beautiful symbols I saw in my vision have been known about and studied for thousands of years. From the Ancient Chinese geomancers to Plato, from the Egyptians and the Hindus, through to the modern work of Nassim Harimein (video), the same powerful geometric shapes recur over and over again.

Qigong Masters & Building the Immune System

| by Merryn Jose

During this time of uncertainty amidst the corona virus, there has been a feeling of helplessness while we wait: wait to leave our houses, wait to develop a vaccine, wait to get the “all clear” signal so that we can resume our lives, our jobs, and the economy. It sometimes feels like there’s nothing we can do to help the situation.  I believe that one of the best ways to use this enforced quiet time and help ourselves is to build our imune systems so that we are better able to resist or lighten the effects of the virus. To that end, I have increased my usual daily qigong practice to include routines from a few of these wonderful Qigong Masters.

Making It Through the Winter

| by Merryn Jose

The last several days of winter have seemed particularly snowy, dark, and icy. It’s been a struggle for many, with virulent viruses abounding, exacerbated by the bitterly cold weather. What has kept me going is the discipline of my daily routines: Qi Gong , meditation and exercise. My spirits are always lifted and I realize anew how rewarding is the ability to control one’s mind and body. Most recently, I have thought of the Buddhist monks who practice tummo , the art of controlling one’s body temperature through meditation
