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.

Communing With Nature Spirits by Craig Junjulas

| by Craig Junjulas

Nature spirits are an evolutionary line within the Deva system. They develop in a similar fashion to the human stream, but are much more involved with becoming one with their environment, rather that experiencing an existence within an environment that is perceived as separate from them. Elemental beings and their more evolved nature spirits, such as fairies, inhabit and co-create within the four elements of earth (gnomes), water (undines), air (sylphs) and fire (salamanders). I consider ether to be the fifth element.”

The following is an extract form a Harmony & Balance report I conducted on a business and their offices to assess the principle of harmony & balance. In the same way that everything is formed in the universe through the primordial aspects of Yin and Yang, which must always be in balance; everything is also formed by the “content and containeraspects.

Meditation, Spirituality & Brain Changes with Dr. Andrew Newberg

You’ve probably heard of Dr. Andrew Newberg’s work on meditation, even if you didn’t realize it — he’s the scientist who did the ground breaking studies of Tibetan monks meditating that showed how dramatically it changed the brain . He went on to study nuns praying and Sikhs chanting and found similar brain states as those of meditation. His ground breaking work led to the development of a new field of science called “neurotheology,” which studies the relationship between the brain and religious experience.

Reconnecting to Your Heart: A Guided Meditation from the Angels

As a mystic, I have been receiving information and guidance from the angels since I was a very young girl. As I watch the news, what I see is a world of souls searching to make sense of the daily Surprise that is thrown upon us. Recently in my meditation The Archangels (the architects of the Heavenly Realms) came to me with a message for our time. I would like to share this with you.

And I hope, somewhere in the next year, you surprise yourself.”

Looking at Sacred Geometry

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.
