The Leading Cause Of Success

In the new issue of Recreation for the Soul, we explore CHOICE. It’s the small actions that we take that build upon each other and make the difference in our lives and the lives of others.

Upon waking in the morning, keep about 10 minutes or so to yourself. Be quiet and thoughtful. Let “bubble up” what is truly important to your success as a helpful, giving human. Now, what one thing can you do TODAY that serves that end?

Have Fun…it’s good for the soul!

What do Integrity, Renewal, Loyalty and Adventure have in common?

They are all blessing coins that have been featured in our newsletter throughout the year. The “coins” which are actually durable golden-colored cardboard rounds are used during play of the Tarot Game. They act as rewards and encouragement. Imagine you have been asked to “tell us something about your mother,” having pulled the Empress card. This may create an emotional story that you share with fellow players. Then players may gift you with blessing coins…such as Memory, Love, or Protection.

In the new issue of Recreation For The Soul, we discuss and play with blessing coin “Passion.”  Take a look at it here.

Adventure Awaits! [Recreation For The Soul ~ Divine Play Newsletter March ’12]

Adventure is this month’s theme. I thought of the time of  Spring Equinox and Aries that approaches. The Emperor, who is ruled by Aries is our Tarot Time exercise. He must take the lead. Your challenge is to discover your own leader moments.

In Lisa de St. Croix’s image shown in the newsletter, he is a builder. Joanna Powell Colbert also depicts him as such in her Gaian Tarot. Think of yourself as the builder of your life. Select from positive and joy-filled past experiences and build upon those for your future. Create the adventure of your own life!

Inside, Roxi Sim, creator of The Pearls of Wisdom Tarot shares a soul-enliven activity with us. You’ll also meet my 7 year old granddaughter who is just now discovering Tarot. I would love to see those of us with children and grandchildren open up to them this world of divine images and storytelling.

What Do You Love To Do?

blessings

Once  upon a time I found a question. The question came from a wealthy and satisfied individual. He had written a book, sold many copies, and helped many people.

Here’s how I remember the question:

If you could do anything all day long without regard to making money or of anyone else’s opinion, what would you do?

Now, right away, you know that is a very good question! It hits at the heart of the matter. What would you do, if you could do what you love?

This was my answer (after following quite a number of steps the millionaire instructed me to take):

I play, learn, and teach spiritually-based,

self-refinement activities.

If you’d like to know more specifics on those soul enlivening steps, please do ask and ye shall receive. I’m happy to dig deeper with you and reconstruct the exercise best that I am able.

Meanwhile, back to my answer… playing in the realm of spirit is precisely what I find myself doing the most these days. I do specialty tarot readings with The Tarot Game; I am learning from some of the most fun and insightful teachers of our day (James Wanless for one. Theresa Reed for another. Joanna Powell Colbert for a third); and soon I will be teaching others to do what I do – facilitate the game for individuals, groups, and events.

I have been a tarot card reader for a quarter of a century. Never before has it been so fun and so effective.

It just doesn’t get better than this. I love what I do.
