These are Simple meditative exercises for you according to the zodiac sign you belong. Enjoy.

Aquarius

You associate strongly to air. Light some fragrant incense sticks and sit in the same room for a while as they burn. Let the aroma permeate your sense and bring a sense of peace and quiet.

Pisces

You associate strongly to water.  Close your eyes and imagine – ‘Get wet in the rain. Look up to the sky and let the rain fall on your face for a few seconds. Feel the rain wash away all the negativity of others and yours. Consciously feel the water droplets sliding off your body and clothes and cleansing you in the process at a deeper level. ‘

Aries

It is fire that you have an affinity towards. Light a lamp and focus on the flame as it burns bright. Concentrate on the flame for a few minutes. Try to be as still as the flame before you.

Taurus

Mother Earth calls out to you. Go out and hug any big tree that you feel a pull towards in a garden or a park. Put your arms around it, close your eyes and put your cheek on the cool bark. Connect to nature.

Gemini

Being an air sign, you can tune in well to your breath. Sit in a comfortable position and close your eyes. Focus on your inhalation and exhalation. Be conscious of every breath that goes in and out. You will feel a stillness deep within and feel more relaxed.

Cancer

Sit comfortably and drink a glass of water. Feel the water go down in your throat as you slowly swallow the water. Imagine the water going down your throat and cleansing you from within as it travels down. Feel it being absorbed in your body.

Leo

Go out in the early morning sun. Stand with your face upturned and your eyes closed. Soak up the sun’s rays on your body as you feel enveloped in the golden sun energy. Stand for a minute or two and feel as every cell in your body is pulsing with the sun energy.

Virgo

Being an Earth sign, you connect to mother earth. Walk barefoot on the ground for a few minutes. Walk on mud /bare ground / grass and consciously try to gently clutch the earth with your toes. Feel the earth beneath your feet soothing and healing in its own way.

Sagittarius

You are a fire sign. Eat a hot meal of your choice. Eat slowly and as you chew the food, be aware of how the hot food tastes in your mouth. How would the same meal taste if it was cold. As you eat it, savour it and feel it travel down in your stomach. This is food which gives you energy. when eating hot food be positive and keep a quite state of mind.

As you are an Earth sign, wearing browns and greens will make you feel more connected to Mother Earth. Wear earth coloured clothes for the whole day and observe how you feel. This will enhance a feeling of security and comfort.

Simplicity of Tarot

simplicity-of-tarot-cover

When I say ‘Anybody can become a Tarot Card reader’, you probably wouldn’t believe me, would you? Well that’s because people have glamorize Tarot to be an art hardly anyone can master, which I completely don’t believe in. I believe Tarot is by far the simplest forms of divination, because it only works on energies.

simplicity of tarot pic2.jpgUnlike Astrology and other divination forms, you don’t have to master all the planets and what they say and what they mean. All you have to master is yourself, and that’s what Tarot teaches you. To get in tuned with your higher self in order to know where your deepest desires lie and how to manifest them. Let me give you a simple exercise. Look at this card below. What do you feel it may mean? What does it tell you? Try to analyze what’s happening in the card here. There’s a man holding a staff in his right hand, and a rose in the other, hopefully looking above the sky, as if he has nothing to worry about, he just goes walking where destiny leads him. This man looks carefree, as though he is ready to face anything that comes his way, full of dreams and aspirations, he goes on to follow his path, maybe mumbling a malodorous tune. That’s why he’s called ‘The Fool’.

Now, do you know anyone like this in your surroundings, perhaps you? How much do you resonate with The Fool? Does he remind you of your desires, dreams, and hopes?

The reason for this experiment was to make you understand how every card brings out a reflection of you or someone you know. This is the first card of the deck, and every card after this leads to the other in such a way that the deck is incomplete without even one card. Some people say that the whole Tarot Deck is the Fool’s Journey, i.e Your Journey. How he meets other former cards, learns values like leadership, creativity, control, love, power from them and applies it to his life.

The Tarot helps you dig in deeper to your psyche, your mind, and your soul and bring out the best in you and others seeking help, and the cards are so easy to read because you will always find a personality as shown in the cards, in your life as well!

So, are you ready to break the Tarot-learning stereotype and transform your life through Tarot?

Dump the ‘waiting ‘

Time to dump the “waiting “.
When nobody else celebrates You, learn to celebrate Yourself.
When nobody else compliments You, then compliment Yourself.
It’s not upto other people to keep You encouraged. It’s upto You…
Self – love, Self respect, Self- approval and Self-worth does not make You selfish…..

Have a great day.

About divination

manju-tarotWe as curious humans have always looked for answers to mysteries. What is our purpose of being here? What does the future hold? Can we change it? There’s an archeological explanation to it that humans are bound to have such deep thoughts and quests and some kind of form of divination is used to support this quest. Divination gives insight to the future. Through various tools like tarot cards, fortune-telling cards, astrology, scrying, crystal ball reading, cowrie shells reading, runes, and coffee readings, solutions to problems, answers to unanswered questions, guidance and help can be found. Any form of divination used is aimed to give relief, assistance and aid the querrant to resolve issues and problems which need to be resolved. In India, fortune telling, astrology, leaf readings are very common forms of divination methods practiced. On the other hand, tarot card and angel card readings are one of the most common and widely used divination methods.

How divination works?

Divination often tends to get associated with religion rather than fortune-telling. There are some people who feel so attuned to god that they seem to get divine messages from them. People who practice the way of God and have dedicated their life to that path also fall under being blessed by the Divine and seem to attain divinity of some kind.

In ancient times, sages and hermits practiced various forms of divination especially when they were living far from each other and wanted to know what was going on in another gurukul. Meditation and learning yoga kriyas were their tools of divination. Divination was something that they learned or acquired with their penances, their holistic and simple lifestyle. Today divination is learnt by many and practiced at a professional level. Different people connect to different divination tools and then go forward to specialise in that specific area of expertise.

Today divination has become more popular due to the digital information age. A lot of people think it’s some kind of mysticism no one will comprehend, but the truth is, in order to master the art of divination the only thing you need to believe in is your intuition. Divination is an excellent way to stimulate your intuition in order to think outside the box about problems that logic can’t handle The question that comes to mind then is, “Who can practice divination?” Anyone who is intuitive and has the interest can learn. Astrology is one scientific divination branch that gets passed on from generation to generation. As a family tradition, these people learn the art and spend their entire lifetime practising this art. There are many people who have an interest in learning anything that helps them to deal with problems and forewarns them about dangers. The word Divination has always had a sense of mysticism attached to it. Anything that goes beyond the ordinary and is way above the normal brings about a sense of awe and respect. There are some who blindly follow anything that is said to them in the name of divination. There are most who will think it through.

If your let your beliefs approach divination with an open mind, it will work for you, because intuitive reception depends on being open. Through divination systems, we have been gifted with symbolic languages to interpret divine will. The symbols and archetypes that form the heart of all divination systems represent the dynamics of human life, including social and political interaction. Because it uses the language of archetypes, divination becomes more than a meditation technique. It can provide insights, timely advice and directions from the divine.

The coming few articles will focus on details of common divination methods practiced today.Until then, believe in yourselves and embrace the beautiful journey of self-discovery!
