What is the first thing that comes to mind when you think of tarot cards? Do you think about how you can shuffle them and play with them? Or do you immediately associate them with predictions of the future?
Perhaps you have thought about all of these when you first think about tarot suits. In truth, before they became known for reading or cartomancy, these cards were first played with. These cards were initially made for amusement.
Those who played with tarot cards before used it alongside a storytelling technique. Each player had to make up a story about the image or symbol shown in the card. The more intricate the symbol, the more interesting the story. In the end, everyone wins.
They were able to play with the cards and share stories with everyone too.
Over time, what used to be just playing cards became the tarot guide. People began to tap on the spirits to send messages through the card. The images used to be just pictures until they became...
Have you felt stuck? Does it feel like you haven’t been growing no matter what you do? Perhaps all you need is a kind of spiritual renewal. It is not about transforming your physical being. Rather, it is about working with your spirit and how you can improve it.

Everything in this world comes together at the right place and time. There is no such thing as a coincidence. Everything that happens to you and what you achieve comes with a purpose.

Do you consider yourself beautiful? While others may say that true beauty is internal, there is no denying how much the modern world has emphasized an individual's outer beauty. From cosmetics to beauty regimens, there are practically thousands of products out there that can help make you feel and look beautiful.
The digital age seems to have instilled in us that beauty is something instant and shallow. It is reduced merely to what is physical that people are no longer concerned about what inner beauty is all about. Comparing one's self to another has become the norm.
It's instantaneous enough that people scroll down their feed and begin to compare their lives to others. They start to see that others are happier than or more beautiful than them. The concept of beauty has become so strict who don't fall under one category find it hard to appreciate themselves.
There is a saying that says, "Beauty is skin deep," but how...
The love that one shows for another shatters the ill-feelings that you have about yourself and eliminates the negativity that your team has about you, and by extension, their work. It more firmly sets the foundation of trust and respect, creating an atmosphere where people go above and beyond expectations.
Getting the most out of your team is as simple as showing them how much you care about them beyond the results that they produce. Contributing to this meaningfully for your organization—no matter the size—can be done with one daily fifteen-minute exercise of utilizing empathy and demonstrating compassion.
Compassion requires empathy towards another. Being seen through the lens of love and care is ultimately what every person wants in some way.
You can be a vehicle for that compassion by 1) having it within you and 2) demonstrating it tangibly and regularly. This consistency brings one out of the honeymoon phase as it gets people to trust you and...
Being angry at another person is only mad at yourself, and realizing this is only able to be digested and fully integrated through breath and humor.
People get angry for a variety of reasons, but typically it is because of an uncomfortable situation that seems to be repeating itself or because of strain in our relationships. There are four easy and simple steps to fall back in your better feeling self.
If we, in the moment, attempt to suppress the feelings that we have, we are telling ourselves that our emotions are not valid.
The breath must be practiced in times of peace and calm in meditation. If we are only focusing on your breathing when we are stressed and upset, then we will subconsciously associate the things. When my four-year-old daughter, Lincoln, gets angry, I have a beautiful practice to bring her back to her breath and finding her center. We've meditated together since she...
There is a special kind of magic that comes with every cup of tea. It's a kind of tea magic that the ancient Chinese practices believe in. For hundreds of years, the Chinese tradition believed in the healing power of tea.
While the magic teapot may bring a cure to various illnesses, it is also something deliciously enjoyed during the afternoons. While people observe life as it happens before them, a good cup of tea makes them remember all the good things that have happened to them.
But did you know that tea is also used for magical purposes? Back then, it was referred to as tea magic, and the practice is slowly gaining popularity in modern times. With the practice of witchcraft and the magic in every teacup, simple recipes can be made to bring about desired results.
Who does not wish they had more money? Everyone hopes to get better luck in life. While most people say that every success entails hard work,...
Let us begin first with the Demiurge. The Demiurge is an ancient Greek and Gnostic concept describing a consciousness that is essentially the creator of the physical reality, but not the supreme creative force behind all things.
An excellent way to explore this idea is through the Matrix, a Science-Fiction story that suggests everything we think we know of as the real world is nothing but an illusion, a false world within which most are imprisoned, unable to identify what is real effectively. As people go about their day to day lives, they think that their world is real, but every individual is plugged into an artificial reality severed from the real world. While people suffer, there is a tremendous benefit to the ruling overlords, who were a form of AI in the film. As it relates to us, this AI is, in essence - the Demiurge.
The Demiurge was described as a force, a deity, or a consciousness responsible for creating the physical world. However, in a way, it had imposed itself...
