The idea of wanting or needing to know the future is part of the human
experience. Tarot cards have had a place in human society for a long time,
at least five hundred years and probably a lot longer than that. Their
beginning is obscure and unknown. We all want to know what is coming, how to
prepare or how to prevent the inevitable. The Tarot cards represent the
obstacles and growths that each person must endure along the path of life.
Reaching the end of a cycle is not the end but a return to the beginning,
to be repeated with new obstacles and new challenges.
Tarot decks are normally divided into two sections, the major arcana and the
minor arcana. The major arcana represent stages and major influences on each
stage of your journey. The minor arcana represent the separate facets of
each stage. They are aids to understanding what is occurring or why something
The twentieth card in the Major arcana is "The Sun". The Sun card represents
a time of optimism, renewed trust and a clarity of vision. It is a time of
understanding patterns and being able to plan within those patterns for the future.
It is the moving forward toward goals and objectives. The Sun card foretells of
joy and success. If reversed, it can be a warning to keep your goals within an
attainable range and not to throw everything away on a grand dream. It is reasonable
to expect joy and happiness in small doses.
The twenty-first card in the Major arcana is "Judgement". The Judgement card
represents something coming to conclusion. It can be positive in that you reap
the rewards of all your hard work, realize the future you dreamed of is now available.
However it can also be negative. It can be a disturbing time of having to face
your own self-betrayals and evasions. There fore the end is not alway a happy one.
You must answer for all of the actions that have brought you to this spot. This is
the end of a stage in life, how it is received and how true you have been to yourself
will define the next stage for you to pass through.

Auras and Chakras
Music for the Chakras
Music as well as colour can be used to soothe and realign the energies of the
body's chakras. Chakras are a balance of energies and music is a balance of harmony.
Each chakra center will respond to it's own note tone but inspirational melodies and
pleasing harmonies can be use to balance the whole chakra system at one time.
You can help to balance each chakra by sitting quietly, listening to and humming
or toning the proper notes for each chakra.

Living with Meditation
Enlightenment is a result of mediation. It is similar to waking from a dream.
All the pieces start to fall into place and you have a knowing about what is right
and true for yourself, be it in the form of action, thought or goal. It is rarely
a total knowing, bits and pieces show up at different times and with different symbols.
As you meditate on a regular basis, the flow of information becomes steady and you
will steadily move along your life path.
Remember that when we meditate, we are part of a world that has used meditation
for centuries. With meditation we are beginning to create a world of unity.
Meditation allows us to communicate with the divine and to bring that knowledge
with us to use in every day life. The light of the divine spreading through this
world and meditation allows us to tap into the truthful knowledge that has always
been available to us.
I wish you peace and enlightenment on your journey toward the divine.
