Tarot Reading

Crossing the Boundaries

I can’t think of any good process for improving yourself in any way which doesn’t involve stepping outside your comfort zone in some way, pushing yourself to do things which are uncomfortable or different.  If you want to change, you have to be willing to change.  If you want to learn to do more than […]

In the Dark Corners

The hardest part of trying to elevate yourself and your way of being is confronting those parts of yourself that don’t serve you, that hold you back.  Those parts which are the most in need of adjustment and examination are often the ones most painful to face, which is why people have a hard time […]

Becoming Your Best Self

The difference between evolution and self-evolution is that, to some extent, you can shape and direct your self-evolution.  The whole point is that you don’t have to be or to become the person the forces around you would conspire to create on their own.  You can let your life experience make you what you are, […]

Tarot as Life Coach

I’m a tarot reader on a professional level now (in the sense that I now do it to generate income rather than just doing it for friends) and though I’ve talked some about the tarot deck I’m working on I’ve not really talked about my approach to tarot.  At least not that I can remember.  […]

Hard Earned Gains

What do we get for the time and effort we put into faithful adherence to our spiritual traditions? Some promise salvation, a future reward for choosing the right side.  They operate like an insurance policy, where your faith and works are taken as payment to ensure a future payout. Some promise enlightenment, a state of […]

A Change of Image

We often undertake spiritual practice for the purpose of impacting who we are inside, at the soul level.  At the very least, we go into our spiritual existence hoping to change how we feel and what kind of person we are deep down.  A lot of practices seek to change our inner being through specific […]

The Golden Rule Revisited

Despite the fact that so many religions include it, the Golden Rule is apparently a difficult concept for humans.  It’s a simple concept, but proper execution requires one to understand that it is to be applied across the board, not just to those you care about.  It means being honest about the things we do […]

Give and Take

I’m fairly sure nobody makes it through life without needing help from others.  By the same token, most of us follow some kind of philosophy or tradition which calls upon us to offer help to those around us who need it.  One thing that we have finally started to understand, however, is that those who […]
