Yin Yang

secretsoftheserpent

Yin Yang comes from the Taoist tradition. What is Yin Yang?  In short it is dualism or opposites.  People don’t really understand Yin Yang because we can all see the opposites and how they effect our world, but what is it really?  Yin Yang is about energy.  The interaction and interplay of these energies.  Yin represents the feminine energy and Yang represents masculine energy.  The dots represent balance.  There is the problem for most, we don’t have balance.  How can we understand Yin Yang on a personal level?  Yin Yang is all about renewal of your energy then the explosion of that energy.

Unlearn

secretsoftheserpent

I get information coming to me a lot.  The information I get is usually something others have gotten too, but it does not register with them.   Why does the information stick with me and not with others?  It is because I have unlearned.  There is a reason why the Matrix resonated with so many people.  We all subconsciously know there is a system to control us.  The system makes you learn what it wants you to learn.  The trick to getting the true information is unlearning what you have learned to make room for the new information.

Conquering Your Gollum

secretsoftheserpent

I get questions like “Why do you share your knowledge?  What is in it for you?”  My answer to that is, “What is knowledge if no one else knows it or no one understands it?”  When I create my content I try to create it so everyone can understand.  I want to bring the world up with me.  That is what gives it meaning and context.  Me sitting alone in a room all quiet about what I know is just selfish.  When I discover new information, the first thing that comes to my mind is how can I share this with others.

Beyond Divination: Four Spiritual Uses for the Tarot

Beautiful artwork. Thanks for sharing.

The Druid's Garden

The Fool from the Tarot of TreesWhen people think of the Tarot, they often think of its primary use as a divination tool.  Tarot is an incredibly versatile tool, and now you can get hundreds of decks on practically any theme, choose from dozens of books to help you learn, and access a wide variety of free online resources.  Learning to read them as a divination method is as straightforward as picking up a book, drawing cards, and reading entries–and yet mastering them can take a lifetime.

I wanted to share a few additional ways that I’ve used the Tarot over the years to enhance my spiritual practice.  The Tarot has many uses beyond divination, and learning some of these can deepen your work with the Tarot even further. These methods can be tied directly to divination uses, help you learn the Tarot in a new way, or be used on their own. All images are…

Cult of Personality

secretsoftheserpent

In this post I will let you into a section of my mind.  Careful where you go in there it is deep and dark.  You may not find your way out.  I am what muggles  see as an introvert and I have deep empathy for the world.  Muggles may think they have empathy, but what they really have is apathy. I am called an arrogant liar, but you can not refute me.   With all that is going on the people are going crazy with materialism.  All in the name of whatever political agenda they are following.  Come in and see what I see.  You just might learn something.
