In this newsletter we will talk about the classes and gatherings offered by ZenSpirit in the coming month, also touching on the burst of creativity at PhotoZen. Sarah is offering some thoughts on asparagus. And we look into the theater boom in Reno and what that may mean to our city.
Can you achieve your desires without the help of others?
Are you ready to ask for that help?
When you came into this life there were certain agreements that created the destiny of the path that you walk. From time to time we may be offered a glimpse of what that destiny is in the bigger picture of why we are here. In this time what may become more apparent is how our destiny intertwines with others, and how our openness to blending comes into play. Continue reading Oracle Blessings, June 2
Are you ready to take decisive action?
You do know that the time is now, don’t you?
In the center of the cards is antelope; and antelope offers wise words calling to swift action. Continue reading Oracle Blessings, May 25
Has your loyalty been tested?
Have you seen an example of loyalty to the bitter end?
This morning I am using two Oracle decks and asked the question; what will next week offer? The decks I use are the Medicine Cards and the Tao Oracle.
The question of loyalty comes up in the cards.
How have you been loyal to your friends?
Do you expect loyalty from your friends?
Where do your talents lie?
What is it that is holding you back from achieving your potential?
This morning I pull three cards from The Power Deck, asking the questions what it is, and what will it be in the end.
Have you made goals?
This is the time to focus on what it is that you wish to create or what it is you wish to be. This is a time of laser focus letting go of the things that are distracting, knowing that it will just be for a while. This time of focus will also be a time of expansion.
What preconceived notions are holding you back?
You have learned exactly how it is supposed to be. Others have filled your head with their observations, now is the time to take a step back and ask yourself if their observations ring true to you. Perhaps it is what you believe to be the only way that is actually standing in your way.
Are you ready to do the same thing but in a completely different way?
The laser focus on what you wish to achieve or what it is you wish to be will lead you to a time of questioning what it is you have done and how you have done it. This will open the door to expansion. A time of discovery will present itself and it is for you to embrace creativity, and be aware and ready when that creativity shows you ways that will not work as well as showing ways that bring a new vision.
Your destiny is to fulfill those things upon which you focus most intently. So choose to keep your focus on that which is truly magnificent, beautiful, uplifting and joyful. Your life is always moving toward something.
Embracing this time of insight I offer you today’s mantra:
I see clearly where it is I wish to be
There is a path ahead of me that many have walked before
Today I choose the path less used
Opening the door to new discoveries
Are you ready to be gracious in defeat?
Can you allow failure not to take over your thoughts?
Today I draw a single card from the Maya Tarot Deck, and indeed the message may not be as bright as one would hope.
Frustration and failure will show up today. It may not even be noticed if you are truly balanced and at peace with what you have created, but if you are off-balance and not happy in your life path this will be a telling sign and may give hints where adjustments are being called to be made.
Only those who dare to fail greatly can ever achieve greatly

There may be a moment of choice, a temper tantrum may feel good in the moment, relieving some of the emotions, but is it the best thing in the long run? This moment will reveal the high road and your choice of the road that calls you.
Waiting for the shoe to drop I offer you today’s mantra:
Opening to the conflict
Examining the meaning
This is my chance to expand
Where will you find beauty?
How will you create beauty?
Today I ask the cards what will be in the business weeks to come. I am using two decks, the Mystic Oracle and the Leonardo DA Vinci Tarot.
The energy of the week will revolve around beauty, perhaps it is time to open your eyes and see the beauty of what you have created or what it is that you do. Even with the vision of beauty the week has to offer; there also promises conflict and perhaps fear as well. When the conflict and fear arises, it will be best to be wise and use your intellect instead of brawn to work through a situation that may prove to be a bit challenging. There is no need to be weak, but also there is no calling to be a target.
It is better to conquer yourself than to win a thousand battles. Then the victory is yours. It cannot be taken from you, not by angels or by demons, heaven or hell.
This may also be a time of growth and nurturing even though it may not be apparent yet. Allowing the week to have its own pace will open up space for growth in some fashion.
Even though there may be conflict clouding the beauty that you see during the week to come there will also be friendship and trust building as well. There may be even more beauty as there is a friendly partnership that may turn out to be quite the journey.
Opening my eyes to the beauty that I see I offer you today’s mantra;
These may come on my way
But there will be beauty within those thoughts and words as well
And that is what I choose to see
Do you feel drawn to helping others?
What are the gifts that you possess that can be used to help heal your community?
This morning I open the cards and reflect on what may be offered this weekend. The cards I am using are the Medicine Cards, Oracle of Visions and the Tao Oracle. Often times I find using multiple decks can bring in a much more rich and complex message.
The raccoon tells us that we can help others, and others are looking for the help that we can offer. The path to reaching our full potential as healers begins with breaking out of the dogma and restrictions that we allow to hamper or forward momentum.
There are powers inside of you
which, if you could discover and
use, would make of you everything
you ever dreamed or imagined
you could become.
~Orison Swett Marsden~
Looking at situations from a totally different point of View will open your mind to a different way of being. What will be created from opening your mind up to this foreign point of view will indeed have its risks and potential for deep change, but the rewards may be quite substantial indeed.
With all of this; there is a great potential for furthering your self-discovery, who is it that you are deep in your heart and how is it that you wish to show up in the world. Indeed, this may be quite a busy weekend.
What is hidden though is with this great transformation that is possible; is the letting go of many things. Some of those things may not be easy to let go of. But these sacrifices are necessary for the forward momentum that is calling.
What will ultimately be revealed this weekend; if you can open up to the transformational energy that is offered, is a place of passion. This will be a passion for what you are creating now and being of service, and perhaps even a deeper understanding of your own spirituality.
Inviting self-discovery I offer you today’s mantra:
Breaking free from the cage that I have created
I see my heart expanding
Discovering what it is that I have to offer
I open my gifts to those in need
If not now then when?
This morning we pull the cards from the Vintage Wisdom Oracle, and extremely beautiful and idealized deck of cards.
I often ask myself “if not now then when?” and this usually indicates a time of inpatients and excitement. Seeing something just on the horizon; that is so very appealing but not quite there yet is indeed such a tease. But through experience I have learned that sometimes rushing what you know is coming takes away much of the magic when it’s here.
Sometimes I arrive just when God’s ready to have somone click the shutter
This is not a time for you to accept whatever comes your way; be discerning in the path that you choose to walk. You will know the right path when your heart feels full and your steps graceful.
This is also a time of creating with others, this is something that comes up quite a bit and teamwork at this time will surely be rewarded. One word of caution; if the team does not work together in harmony and joy perhaps that is an indication to exercise discernment and make some changes.
The importance of giving thought to all of this process may not seem that strong, but take a step back and take the time to think through what it is that you are creating now and examine if it truly is time to move forward.
With all of this said in the days to come be open to that feeling of purity in all that you do and create.
With divine timing I offer you today’s mantra:
As I hear the clock tick off the seconds
I feel the music in my soul
Calling me to a place of creation
I now know the time is now
Can you feel the change in the air?
Are you resisting this change for reasons you do not understand?
Today we look at the week ahead in regards to business endeavors. The message that we receive is not only for those who own a business, but for anyone who works within an organization and creates something with the cooperation of others. We are using a combination of two decks, the Dark Grimoir Tarot and the Leonardo Da Vinci Tarot.
There is a change in the air that is a very palatable and evident. But there is also a resistance. This resistance comes from the shadows and the demons that are being unearthed as the change happens. This is a process and should be embraced. As you fall into the changes in what you do and how you think be aware of what it is that makes you uncomfortable, this is for you to examine and learn from and these are the stepping stones that may lead you closer to your full potential.
In the week to come, be sure to take care of internal matters. Organize and clean, make things presentable for those who come to you. In doing this you may discover some surprising elements to let go of. With this reorganization, cleaning and purging you will create purity to attract focused thoughts and actions.
Look to your guides and angels, and perhaps to those in your inner circle who offer wise counsel. This is certainly the time to address the needy elements in what it is that you have created. Nurture your creations and with that nurturing will ultimately bring you a deeper resolve in your heart.
This is the time to truly contemplate what it is that you are creating. There is a rhythm of expansion and contraction and everything around us, and this is a time that may feel like contraction for it is time to go deep into contemplation. Indeed, this is more of an expansion time than you realize, just quietly so. In this space patience will surely be rewarded, waiting for the time when the rhythm is right to dance with what it is you are creating.
All this may bring thoughts of hard times to come. It may be true that there will be some challenges right around the corner, but remember that you are guided by your own intellect and buy your guides and angels as well. Even when things get ugly and destruction looks like it cannot be avoided, remember to go to those gifts that you’ve been given and listen to your guides and angels and draw on your own intelligence and experience.
The art of life is a constant readjustment to our surroundings
What is hidden is how others are clawing out what it is you’ve created. There is certainly a vulnerability there, and with teamwork, planning, and foresight these weaknesses will be made visible and the opportunity to strengthen your creation will be at hand.
Ultimately by the end of the week it will become apparent of where you have painted yourself into a corner. This feeling of being trapped will only be accentuated if all you can think of is how you have done things in the past. With all of the skills and knowledge that of come to you now is the time to think and create differently than ever before. There will be no hurry in this change, but there certainly is no time to avoid the inevitable.
Deep in quiet contemplation I offer you this mantra:
I gaze upon the space that I am in
What is it that I have created?
Why is it that I feel trapped?
I gaze upon the space that I am in
I see is a river of change
I feel the beauty of innovation
I gaze upon the place to which I am going
I see the challenge
I feel my strength
