Welcome, sweet friend! October marks the start of a brand new video and blog series - Ancestry & Tarot
As Mama Earth quietens and turns towards her roots during the darker nights and cooler days, so we are invited to do the same, embracing such time as an opportunity for exploring all things family.
Open to both tarot newbies and seasoned card slingers alike, we'll be exploring our roots using tarot as a tool for empowered understanding, connection, healing and growth.
When we take time to consciously turn towards our roots and to our family history and family-stories, we're able to develop a greater understanding of ourselves and our family relationships in the present moment as well as an appreciation of those who paved the way to where we find ourselves now.
There is such healing potential within this journey - I'm so happy to be travelling along with you, sweet friend!
Of course, 'ancestry' can mean many things, and isn't just about shared DNA. Ancestry encompasses the ancestral sphere we have been born into as well as spheres embraced via life events such as adoption, marriage/partnership, starting a family and even significant friendships.
Whatever family and ancestry mean to you is what you're called to explore, sweet friend <3
Wondering what to expect as Autumn unfolds?
We've got lots to journey through! All activities and exercises have been developed, used and enjoyed in my own personal practice. I do hope you find the following helpful and illuminating, too.
We'll begin by anchoring into the present moment, examining current family dynamics and the relationships we have with our loved ones, alongside topics such as conflict resolution and using tarot as a storytelling tool for exploring family beliefs and values as well as significant events.
We'll also dive into some inner child work and consider how we might pause to honour and bear witness to moments of family transition.
We'll then shift our focus towards those who came before us, exploring the wonderful gifts, traits and skills passed on to us by our ancestors before examining how we might go about understanding, healing and releasing inherited blocks, patterns or obstacles manifesting in our lifetime that no longer serve us.
Ancestral chakras and intuitive body mapping are two of the healing topics we'll dive into in-depth, while also exploring ancestral communication and how we can honour and facilitate a connection with our loved ones in Spirit.
Moving forwards we'll take a look at legacy and what we'd like our energetic thumbprint to be both during our lifetime and for future generations to come.
We'll wrap things up with a super supportive ancestral healing meditation - posted as a video for you to enjoy at a time that suits you best - and of course we'll be using our tarot cards throughout in activities and readings designed to really help us dive into our ancestral exploration wholeheartedly.
Ready?! Yay! Videos and blog posts will be posted throughout October + November and I'll make sure everything is always easily accessible for you to find and enjoy.
It really is such an honour to be embarking upon this journey together, and I do hope you find it an enriching, enlightening, empowering experience.
