Opportunities for Transformation
Discover Yourself Within the World of Tarot
I just completed an AMAZING course that I want to tell everyone about! It opened my eyes to the fact that all of us as human beings are living out a story line, in that we all cross the same paths at some point in our lives. I have been where you have been, you have been where I have been–we’ve all been winners, all been losers, all been victimized, all been abusers or bullies, and we can learn from our experiences. Believe me, you’ll want to check out Holly Sue’s new class – but do it quick! She’s only taking 10 students.
Are you willing to take time to consider how your life experiences and unique perspective tie-in to the fabric of humanity, life, and truth?This is the purpose of Tarot.
Contrary to common belief, Tarot is not a tool of Gypsies for determining one’s fate. It is, however, an effective tool for clearly identifying possible choices and the consequences attached to them. Around the 1930′s, psychologist Carl Jung concluded that a person’s psyche develops in similar patterns to those from fetus through the stages of infancy–a fairly regimented process of development. As a product of millenia of cultural-belief patterns, each person is born with a path they must travel before they reach “peace of mind,” or an “awareness of self.” In most cultures, languages and religions there is the archetypal story of a hero who faces darkness, then death, and then returns to life with total personal power. It has the same components of the story of Jesus Christ, for example, and also Buddha.
Hundreds of years before Jung, artists had created a series of paintings for wealthy European families. This series followed the story that transcends time –the Fool venturing out into the world and finding himself; finding that he truly is the Hero. These paintings eventually developed into the 21 stages of the Hero’s journey in a card game which first appeared in Italy and was called “Triumphi” and later called “Tarocchi” and finally in France shortened to the word “Tarot.”
Eventually people noticed the transcendental story of Tarot and how it mirrored the story of the Hero. In the 1600′s, members of the Golden Dawn, a secret society in Europe, discovered Tarot, and began to study the imagery. Years later, member Arthur Waite commissioned a deck that would contain all of the images reflecting the archetypal experiences of humanity. Tarot gradually became a popular tool of introspection and spiritual study until this day.
What does this have to do with you? You follow a similar path of darkness into light – fool to hero. The study of Tarot is the study of these types of situations, personalities, ethical challenges and hidden truths – the stuff of myths, folklore and chick flicks. And while reading a great book, watching a powerful movie, or talking to a wise friend can be equally as effective as Tarot in seeking guidance in life, I have found Tarot to be a most simple and complete tool. As a person works to understand his or her own progress along the bigger spectrum of existence, they will connect to their true Selves and reach fulfillment, on a personal, “self-actualization” level, as well as in relationships with others. Tarot is an absolutely magnificent tool for this journey!

Terrific Tips for Health & Healing
By Deborah Zbicki, Health Consultant
Why Do We Have Illness?
I used to think that illness just happened, and that all people got sick. This was further ingrained as a belief during nursing school. II was told that people simply become ill, and that the only way to cure illness was with pills or surgery. I later saw, however, that alternative medicine, such as homeopathy, vitamins, supplements, massage, and cranial sacral therapy actually works.
My biggest shift, however, occurred when I learned about energy medicine and the body’s energy system. At the same time, I became aware that I CREATED MY OWN DISEASE! Wow! I learned that by not taking care of myself both physically or emotionally, I it created disease. Then, I discovered that sometimes I stayed ill because there was a payoff with the attention that I received.
I became aware that I had a choice–I could either continue being sick and creating more illness, or I could choose differently. I decided to be accountable, to look at why I created disease and what the payoff was for being ill, and to remove the original emotion or belief that created the illness in the first place.
Through energy medicine, I removed these emotions and beliefs causing illness. I learned various energy medicine modalities to do this, including ESI (emotional stress integration), Reiki, and theta healing. Through these techniques, I have healed my body so I no longer take medication of any kind! I have healed diseases that doctors have said either did not exist or could not be healed, including candidiasis, arthritis, low thyroid function, paroxysmal atrial tachycardia, and herpes. I have even slowed and then reversed the aging process in my body, so that I look younger and feel vibrant.
During my learning process about being accountable and removing my own illness, I read a book called Remembering Wholeness, by Carol Tuttle. This book described how diseases were created and how the root cause, a belief or emotion, could be healed. I strongly recommend that you read this book if you want to create health for yourself. Health is our birthright, in spite of the beliefs taught by society that we must get sick at times. You have a choice to make about your own health. I encourage you to choose well for yourself.
