Community Meditation: Thank You.


Just a quick note to say thank you to everyone who came to Community Meditation night at The Crystal Matrix. It’s nice to see regular faces, and meet new folks interested in coming together.

Meditation is a foundation practice, it builds a stable base of experience around listening, receptivity, and provides a stepping stone to the curious and the dedicated to explore other metaphysical interests such as healing, creative visualization, and self-exploration. It is the base of everything I do, I practice every day.

I’m looking forward to launching a class around the experience, especially the questions and challenges. Not everyone comes to these events at the peak of their meditative experience. It is a “practice,” which means it is something that you work with, always. A tool that builds upon itself and can open expanded states of awareness, deeper knowing about our feelings, our mind, and our world which I think is particularly important now.

I’m looking forward to many more lovely evenings of community, gathering around the inner fire of wisdom.

My love,

July Daily Tarot Wisdom: Transcendence


Was it me or did June feel like it passed very quickly, yet took forever? I think because I remained so busy with projects, classes, and events that the dual fast-slow of good times and engagement swept me up.

This month I’m continuing with the Tree and Three Worlds spreads to encompass the various influences and undertones of the Wisdom Dailies. Year of the Chariot remember?

The Chariot

The Chariot as seen on the right (Hermetic Tarot) has a few interesting attributes for meditation. We all noted in the beginning of the year that it was also the Year of the Horse, this for me created energy and opportunity to take planning, power, and speed, and unleash our project or goals out into the world.

Now is the time to do it.

As I said the card has some attributes that are potential tools for meditation and here are a few for your consideration before I bounce into the July 2014, monthly reading. Consider the following symbols and meanings as fertilizer for the moment. (Please note that the following attributions are available, with much more information, via Tarot of Spirit companion book; A boon for any reader).

  • Essence: The personality is the vehicle for ascent / descent; change perspectives for a new field of view.
  • Intelligence: Intelligence of the House of Influence; in the physical body, we are the act, the actor, and the means of action.
  • Veil: True knowledge is blocked by stopping the inquiry at the Symbol. Symbolism represents Spirit, but it is not Spirit (this plays with the Ain Soph, we bandied with earlier this month in live readings and discussions).
  • Mystery: Form acts as a limitation, but it is not. It is protection. Form is a “Ring-Pass-Not,” a finite field (of activity) in which the force of Spirit Resides. New force will dissolve old Forms. This is the creative process. You are the creative force.
