One day not so long ago we all woke up and the world, as we knew it, shifted on its axis. Nothing has been, or will ever be, the same. We are all being challenged in ways that we never have been before. The remarkable thing is that it is happening to everyone on the planet. It doesn't matter what our backgrounds are-our location, age, nationality, race, religion, socioeconomic status, sexual orientation, or gender expression. This is one of the most isolating yet unifying moments in human history. None of us know what might transform in our lives as well as in the collective when we emerge from this forced cocoon. All of us are being confronted with our shadow-that place where things that are hard to look at hide. We are also being sandbagged by our deepest fears and insecurities. Anxiety, depression, addiction issues, etc. are all raising their ugly heads and our standard practices of self-care are inaccessible. I, personally, am missing my massage, hair, and pedicure appointments as well as yoga, dance, coffee shop dates, and heart connections with friends and family. Our sense of safety and routine are being rocked to the core and might never go back to what they were. If we had a deep connection with our own inner landscape prior to this, we will be able to thrive and not just survive. I, fortunately, have spent the last 12 years of my life building a connection to my intuition and becoming part of a world-wide community of expressive artists. Also, my Tarot practice has always helped me sustain and rise during challenging times. If you don't have a strong connection with yourself or want to strengthen that bond, NOW is a perfect opportunity to build that. If you believe that you have the power to transform your experience and aren't a victim of the outside circumstances, all the raw ingredients are available. Tarot, movement, and expressive arts are three magical tools to help you do just that. Taking a journey within and connecting with your intuition is magical. Whether you believe in angels, spirit guides, the afterlife, reincarnation, meditation, the 2nd coming, animal guides, (fill in the blank here) or are an agnostic or atheist, there is a part of you that has Higher Wisdom. Most humans in the modern age don't have tools to access theirs, but when you have practices of embodiment, tarot, and art the way becomes clearer. I have seen the magic of these tools unfold in the lives of myself and many others and hope you will join me in strengthening your bond. Let's be honest...none of us knows when this will end and what the fall-out will be. But what I know is that we can not only survive it, we can rise up and thrive. Take a leap of faith and join me in the magical realm. I promise you, you won't regret it.
