The Secrets of the Universe in 100 Symbols by Sarah Bartlett
Not so long ago, I began my Tarot journey.
Well being and self nurturing were on the agenda, I was seeking a bit of guidance and solace during an emotionally challenging year.
Time, place and circumstance took care of the rest.
I went to my first lesson and haven’t looked back!
I’m not a total newbie to new age wonders. The esoteric world has long fascinated my curious mind though I’ve only ever dabbled here and there, as you do.
A bit of astrology, runes, looking at cards with friends for fun.
It never occurred to me how much I would learn and benefit from these teachings, or how much I would enjoy it.
I use the Hermetic Tarot which are full of rich symbolism, including astrological, numerical, mythological, angelic, geomantic, sephirotic and kabbalistic elements. Tarot is all about universal imagery and symbols. Tarot helps in finding perspective, an objective overview, intertwined with our inner tuition and a good dose of universal/divine assistance.
Developing and trusting my intuitive skills is powerful!
It feels like a rush-y wave washing over you, seemingly suddenly learning falls into place and becomes knowing.
Tarot is more involved than I imagined. The process of meditation and ritual, prepare, ground and guide you. Trusting your intuition does the rest. So far the study of tarot has been a therapeutical journey of self reflection, self-awareness and creative personal development, rekindling many past interests.
I’m a hippy chick at heart. I find solace in nature, creativity and the world around me, so no wonder learning Tarot has awakened my sense of connection to the universe. I am often in awe of how intrinsically one thing so comfortably links to everything else, like a network of intricate veins or the ripple effect. Wonder lust indeed.
Let me know if you fancy a reading.
For me, it seems there is not much difference between wondering and wandering. It has always helped me find inspiration. Creative dabbling is good for the soul, I couldn't imagine life without it and often surprise myself by what I come up with.
