Spiritual Guidance & Inspiration Through TarotWritten by Christin Snyder
The Following is an introduction to Spiritual Guidance Tarot Reading as it is taught in my upcoming book/class “Spiritual Guidance Tarot - A Journey in Self-Discovery".
In my many years of reading and interpreting cards I have discovered that most effective readings tend to focus not on "fortune telling" but on inspiring and motivating people to seek their own truths within. I seek to show individual methods they can use to unlock their fullest potential. Personal Empowerment should be goal of any reading. .
In my time doing readings I have seen so many people who thought that I could just tell them what is going to happen. I know it is human nature to want to have all answers, to be in control. In past I often "abused" Tarot myself attempting to effect answers and solutions in advance. The most important thing I tell people is that although many times difficult, life is a beautiful learning experience. Every decision we make, every thing that we do serves our growth. When we reach those low points of grief and anger we have to try our hardest to recognize them as a blessing. Yes a blessing, because without sorrow we would not be able to express or understand joy, without tears there would be no laughter. Life experience is merely a matter of choice. We can not change outer world, but we can change ourselves and way in which we choose to react to events. When we make a conscious attempt to do this we transform not only our own lives but also lives of all we touch. The present and future is a beautiful gift given to each one of us to shape and mold as we will. When we attempt to shape this for another person; we overstep our boundaries. When we seek to show people different ways of looking at their present situation, we empower them to make better decisions for their futures. Empowerment is best thing a reading can provide to someone who is Troubled rather than false hope
Integrating Soul and ScienceWritten by Robert Bruce Baird
"Spirit is beyond void of space. This realm, beyond void, is not an empty nothingness; it is womb of creation. -- Nature goes to same place to create a galaxy of stars, a cluster of nebulas, a rain forest, a human body, or a thought... That place is Spirit." (1) The idea of thought coming from Spirit is a little general and not something I agree with unless he means REAL thought rather than regurgitated thought. Deepak Chopra is a great and wonderful human being who escaped material competitive focused world and 'expertise' that was his, as a doctor. However, we have shown that science is getting dangerously close to finding templates and forms that mirror this kind of philosophy. The church felt science was philosophy and that all things came from this kind of godhead in 'Dark Ages'; and scientists have justifiably thought any mention of a bridge to religion is fraught with these kinds of intellectual authoritarian terrors. Perhaps now we can re-evaluate our belief in godly forces and not involve religious or priestly interpreters who ask us to 'follow' like sheep. To replace one set of interpreters with another form of 'expertise' is not good. Surely there is a balance that harmonizes with purpose and true knowingness. I like thought expressed by James Watson in his foreword to Discovering Brain. He said, ‘The brain boggles mind.’. It is also true that a lot of ‘boggling’ has been done by those saying they seek God. The equipment based on Tesla's 'non-force info packets' that draws energy from a vacuum that Bearden has patented and wireless transmission of generated energy will make perpetual motion seem tame. The real possibilities of using other dimensions as storage for energy we create could be just around corner. Someday barriers we have created in our real world through an ignorant adherence to conventions of black and white certainty will be brought down just like Berlin Wall; we built it to keep ideas and people from each other. I'm not cognizant of all ins and outs of 'red-shifts' or other astrophysical esoterics so generalities of my insights might not have as much merit. The exorcisms I've been involved in helping free both possessed and possessor are part of limbo state which energy exists in after death. Does this limbo state include same energy band- width that our solar or auric body travels in? Not by experience of astral work I've done. However, one can meet dead people in astral travel if one has a guide or spirit is attuned that you are about to visit. That spirit would be a multi-dimensional traveler then. There are many shades and variations of spiritual bandwidths and it may be because there is so much more energy in unseen world that astrophysicists told us about earlier. Ninety-five per cent versus 5 per cent is a large ratio in favor of unseen. The ultraviolet and light energies might even be part of visible universe, which would mean we can only actually see a percentage of material universe. And as big an issue as all of this kind of talk is, we still must consider whether or not we know what we see when it slaps us in face, as they say. The average person today will likely have their mind and senses closed to opportunity that thalami offer to accentuate, amplify and direct non-visual forces to our conscious processing centers. The operational paradigms of spiritual world are a science unto themselves, and astrophysicists may not have as good a picture as I hope they do. There are those I have met, who can travel between dimensions and we will deal with these aspects of life and natural possibilities versus hallucination in other parts of this book. But, if modern research is right about Thalami, I feel quite certain that all dimensions are at our disposal in every aspect of our existence. When one remembers way we thought about spirits and devils as we listened to preachers who tried to tell us about HELL - it is difficult to open our minds to what they were saying about saints who performed very miracles that men and women have always been able to do. We see that 'Gospel of Thomas' from Dag (or Nag) Hammadi 'finds' confirms Jesus never performed any miracle that you or I can't do. We are all 'children of God' (John 10:34). The dimensional spiritual world is science and real even if we are ignorant of it. That is what Gnostics he studied with say is 'Original Sin' that separates us from God - IGNORANCE! Scipio Africanus and others before and after time of Jesus were used to seeing each other and spirits of their loved ones alive or dead! In many instances there is potential to visualize future and it will happen with proper INTENT. Bucky Fuller did it, and I have too. Some say forces of darkness that created Dark Age were able to re-program world mind to point that our ability was diminished by evil they fomented. Energy of a negative nature does have to be attuned with good, in order for Abraxas or unity to occur, on grand scale and as an individual. That is why selfish prayer is wasteful and one must operate in 'brotherhood' and love to come up with things like geodesic dome or wireless 'free energy'. Still these things are on shelf and few really know how great they are and how much better world might be. Microchemical potentials and observations are exciting corollaries to chaos science. The laws of universe are 'unfolding as they should' (Desiderata was a nice poem that Pierre Trudeau often quoted as Canada's Prime Minister when I was a young man.) 'whether or not it is clear' to us! There are always good things to learn when one looks at work of these scientists. I especially enjoy those who are willing to do what Bucky Fuller described when he talked about 'stepping outside circle' or 'biting his tongue' when he felt complacent in knowledge he had in a particular area of deliberation. Professor Morowitz is a microbiologist and chemist at Yale University who we will show later as an example of what can happen when people think integratively and lose their ego. He also correctly observes that few of physical sciences encourage this integration. Is it possible to have an answer when questions are slanted to dovetail with only one perspective? We respectfully offer that no real truth has ever resulted from need of any tenured or other 'expert' who sought power from his peers rather than enlightenment from 'ALL that is!'
