Holistic Tarot – define the present, improve the future

Benebell Wen gives us a guided tour of the history of Tarot and it’s many uses in her new book Holistic Tarot: An Integrative Approach to Using Tarot for Personal Growth.

This Tarot book comes with a twist, however.
Unlike many practitioners, in Holistic Tarot – – Benebell Wen offers us an insight into a different methodology and use for Tarot than the commonly understood norm. 

She states that’Tarot should not be used to predict the future’and that a way to progress with modern spiritual psychoanalytical practice is to choose the frame of ‘Tarot analytics’ – as she says…I do not support fortune-telling and I do not believe in future-telling. 

My approach to Tarot is not predictive.  It is analytic.  The signs and symbols of the cards facilitate retrieval of information from the unconscious and move it to the forefront of the conscious plane of the mind, which can then help us form creative solutions, present a different angle to a problem…or offer the breakthrough that allows us to move forward.

I call it “Tarot Analytics’

Help stop bullying with this summer read – Larger-than-life Lara by Dandi Mackall

In Larger-Than-Life Lara by Dandi Mackall, Lara is truly larger than life – in some unexpected ways.

She is an overweight child and is ridiculed for this, yet she has special talents which finally open up the children’s hearts in the school where she starts over (again).

We get the impression from the story that she has moved from school to school already.

Lara’s story is told by another classmate, Laney Grafton who is initially relieved when Lara turns up since Laney as up until this point been the class kicking post for anyone with a bullying disposition…Laney realizes after the first 3 days of Lara’s school attendance that she has not been kicked, pushed or called names.

Both my girls read this book and suggested I read it too.  In fact, they were insistent!

It’s an easy read for adults and children alike and is a great way to begin to understand the insidious nature of bullying from a child’s perspective.

We are in the Akashic Age – what is that, exactly?

We used to watch mainstream media and believe most of it…now many people are beginning to find mainstream media more and more irrelevant – from the spiritual perspective even heavily and highly negative in energetic content! Perhaps it’s time to give up some of these old ways of being and move into the Akashic Age.

Recipes For A Sacred Life | A Book Review by Mom On A Spiritual Journey

Have you ever wondered who wrote that popular poem The Desiderata?

It’s that poem that starts..

Go placidly amid the noise and the haste and remember what peace there may be in silence. As far as possible, without surrender, be on good terms with all persons…

You may have seen it printed somewhere or sown as an embroidered piece at your auntie’s house or granny’s house.

In Rivvy Neshama’s book Recipes for a Sacred Life, you can dip in and find out who really wrote that poem…plus study the full poem yourself and gain some peace from it.  The story of who really wrote The Desiderata is quite surprising.

Cracking the Nocebo Code | Mind Over Medicine by Lissa Rankin – change your mind, change our medicine

Did you know that people who respond well to a placebo are often REMOVED from clinical trials?

The Nocebo Effect is something I had heard of, but wasn’t 100% sure that I understood the definition well – until I read Mind Over Medicine: Scientific Proof That You Can Heal Yourself, that is.

The theory behind the Nocebo Effect is that we can think ourselves sick, basically – and perhaps even sicker when we are surrounded by others who think of us that way also.

So the formula (according to Lissa) would be Negative Beliefs + Harsh Care = Sickness.

The power of personal belief is a tool that can be applied for everybody’s health and well being.  We just need to be taught how to use it.
