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. ‘

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.

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.

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?

1). 3 of spades – As you might be having difficulties at work or coping up with it, it is very important for you to acknowledge your emotions. Maybe you made a decision you are not happy about, maybe you’re facing negative blocks at work or struggling with deadlines, during this tough time, you should see pain as a learning opportunity. Challenges remain but once they are no longer perceived as negative or bad, they lose a lot of their impact. You have the ability to conquer anything that comes your way, therefore your next step is to take it all in, and show them who’s the boss!
2). 3 of clubs – Your plans are now well underway and you are starting to consider even more opportunities to expand your current plans. More such opportunities wait at your door in the form of study, travel, business, or learning. You need to become more aware of them as there may be more opportunities standing out for you than you are aware of. Your next step is to concentrate, cooperate, and remain open-minded. It’s time to think BIG!
3). Queen of clubs – Your work is proof that you can achieve anything you set your mind to. Due to your outgoing nature and charismatic personality, you’re able to blend in confidently with your co-workers and are full of ideas that you’re ready to share and implement with others. However, it is important for you to stay in the grind and not get carried away by your own charisma. Your next step is to hold you place in the chain of command and respect the hierarchy. Restrain yourself and be loyal to your higher-ups. Stick to your helm, even though you might be motivated by a strong dedication. Perform in good faith and whatever you desire will come.

My body is my friend

imagescaf0edh5

Our body is made up of cells and each of these cells has its own intelligence and memory. The cells in our body are constantly imbibing everything that we hear and all that is going on around us. All information, positive and negative, is stored in the cellular memory and the cells respond accordingly. For example when you keep saying : I am so fat, it is difficult for me to lose weight, – this is all that your cells are hearing and so they respond to these statements – by holding on to the fat – so that your statement “ I am so fat ‘ remains so in your reality.
As you learn to talk to your body lovingly and positively – it responds to you in a positive manner. Issues of weight loss, ugliness, and complexion are no longer a struggle. Consider your body as your friend and walk the path together. Thus making the journey one of least effort and most results. Respect your body’s intelligence by talking AND listening to it.

In the morning as you begin your day and in the night as you end your day – use the technique to talk to your body and watch amazing results.
Lovingly touch your skin and talk to your body. Say that you love your body and thank it for functioning in wonderful order. Thank your body for serving you and your life purpose.

When you are trying to lose weight, or gain weight or removal of disease or any work with the body, understand you are not alone in it. Your body is an integral part of it and of you. Make your body your friend and work with it, rather than taking it for granted and just “doing to” or even experimenting the body.

For weight loss: a minute just prior to beginning your exercise routine, speak to your body lovingly. Assure your body that you will respect its limits. Affirm to yourself: My body is of the weight best suited for me to be healthy’. All excess weight is easily and effortlessly being dropped. Also add that you are helping your body drop all the excess weight. You both are working together towards good health.

For disease: Speak to your body that you are ready to release the pile up of past emotions and that it need not store these past emotions in your body. Ask the body for it to be released gently, just as much as you can handle. Affirm to yourself: “The past no longer exists. I let go easily and gently.” “I love myself, I value myself.”

For beauty: Move your palms on your face, feeling the smoothness of your skin. Talk to your body to release all toxins, emotional and physical, that keep your skin from its natural glow. Affirm to yourself, preferably, in front of the mirror “My skin is radiant and healthy. I am happy. I am a beautiful child of the Universe.

As you practice talking to your body, it will respond to you. You now need to learn to listen to your body and understand these responses. You will suddenly be attracted towards certain type of foods more than you have ever been. You might want to try new foods. If your body requires movement, you will be drawn to new forms of exercise, dance or walk. Whatever no longer serves you to remain healthy the body will simply reject. You will find your body rejecting foods that you may have always been eating. The body rejects by – lack of taste, upset stomach, sweat. Never force your body – for anything. It is simply disrespectful. Make your body your friend today, the rewards are sweet.

If you’re ashamed of your past, you’ll hardly be proud of your future.

imagescagkk7ny

As I go through life, there are so many things that I want to do. My actions at each stage of life, I believe are based on so many different factors. But am I responsible for my actions or is it the others that have to bear that cross. Some of our actions make us successful and bring about a positive change in our life and some bring about a negative. We often tend to look back and feel just as good about the past as we feel ashamed. There are some incidents we are proud of and some which make us feel ashamed. There are incidents that still come to my mind.
People who have come up the hard way sometimes are uncomfortable talking about their past. They somewhere tend to forget that it is this past that has made them and be what they are. There is a feeling to alienate oneself from the previous surroundings and look towards the bright future only. Maybe a question at this point needs to be asked. If our past embarrasses us, how will we be able to be proud about our future? Every phase of life is a learning experience and it is up to us what to make of such an experience. If we are in a position to look at the positive side of every experience, we have no need to feel ashamed at all. There are so many examples of people being bus conductors, delivery boys, sales girls, ticket checkers who have climbed the pinnacle of success today. It is their then surrounding that further gave rise to their need to taste success. A foundation that is built in difficult times can rarely be weak. When we feel ashamed, we are feeling ashamed with a part of ourselves. Completion leads to achievement. When we have come to terms, accepted and are complete with the past. Then miraculously the doors of rewards, success and good fortune open up to you.
