Eight Ways to Positively Maintain Energy and Vitality.

I have been reading one of my favourite books 'Tarot the handbook' by Angeles Arrien. I wish I had this book 10 years ago when I started getting into the tarot it is the best book on the tarot, I have read!

I want to share with you what she wrote about the Eight Ways to Positively Maintain Energy and Vitality.

1. The Ace of Wands: Truth - the state of consciousness where we absolutely refuse to abandon who we are and where we stay in the truth of who we are.

2. The Two of Wands: Dominion -allows us to be clear about what would bring peace, balance and dominion into arenas of our lives that would resolve anxiety and strife.

3. The Three of Wands: Virtue - when our mind, heart and action are in alignment, then we are able to be consistent, congruent. If the mind, heart and action are not in alignment this card reminds us to wait and not act.

4. The Four of Wands: Completion - move in new directions from a place of wholeness and completion.

5. The Six of Wands: Victory - the combination of flexibility and creativity allows us to create win/win situations in our life rather than win/lose situations. The ultimate victory is where everyone experiences a win/win.

6. The Seven of Wands: Valour - valour comes from the root word to VALUE. This is the courage to stay by what you value, not compromise or settle for less. This permits us to move in new directions and to see things more clearly.

7. The Eight of Wands: Swiftness - not to procrastinate or be convert and manipulative with our communication. Have direct communication and swift action. Often anxiety and oppression are created by procrastinating or by not being direct in our communication.

8. The Nine of Wands: Strength - at the core of who we are, we have unlimited resources of inner strength. The intertwined arrows represent the mental, emotional, spiritual and physical strength that is inherently available to us all.

One day I will bring out my own pack of tarot. I have started and have a big visual diary with heaps of notes already. It may take me another 10 or 20 years to finish but that’s cool as I want them to be a part of me, a tool to share with the world of what I have learnt over the years. I love getting older and learning more! It is so nice to see the world’s eyes changing with a more positive mind set and a better spiritual knowledge.

My message for the day was: Hold the thought that you would like God's loving assistance, and it is done.

Art Every Day Month Day 7 - Encaustic Wax

I'm really enjoying blogging again, it's been years since I have written everyday. I used to do morning pages before I got pregnant, I have heaps of books full of my dribble. The Artist Way by Julia Cameron got me into the morning pages! Every artist should own a copy of that book! 
I was talking to a friend yesterday and she wanted me to order her a box of encaustic wax. I haven't done any encasutic for such a long time, so today was the day to dust off the cobwebs and get melting. 
Here are my 2 creations for the day...

I have been looking for my cutter cause this card is too big and I just can't find it anywhere. 
Here are some other pieces I have done, in the past with encaustic wax.

This one was done with the iron on card.

Finally life is back to normal

Today is the first day in nearly 2 weeks that we have back our happy little singing girl. Nothing worse than a sick child! It makes you realise, on days like today, how lucky we have it.
I got a lot done today I started painting a series of affirmations paintings for our house. It will be nice to be surrounded in positive words when we need them. Called into the recycling centre and the supermarket. Gave shit to plummer Dan when he walked in on me cleaning the shower and chatted to the builder who is fixing our bathroom floor. Caught up with Chanz, Mum and Lyn. Got my 4 artist trading cards ready to send off 2mora for the next trade. Bought a Norfolk pine for our Christmas Tree, potted it in a lovely pot and decorated. I also split up one of my plants that I have wanted to do for sometime now but had ran out of potting mix. I got a shock when I drove into the Springvale Garden Centre it's FLASH! They have a kids play area, I have never been to a garden centre with a playground in …
