Inspiring Enchantment & Illumination with Tarot & Intuitive Guidance

Illumination: To Hold Stillness

“Be still. Stillness reveals the secrets of eternity.” Lao Tzu

In the sacred light of awareness, I invite you to open all your senses to healing, wonder, and Mystery. Come refresh your spirit, and spark your joy.

The act of Holding Stillness is essential as both an ending and a genesis. It is the gift of rest, when striving must cease. We need times of quiet and reflection. This is how our roots grow, digging deep, feeding from what has been, and preparing for the season of blossoming activity ahead.

Here I offer you my Wordless Wednesday posts, as well as my many offerings of poetry – the most ancient form of magic known to humanity.

Rest easy, and receive these blessings for stillness — to replenish your spirit, expand your receptivity, and refill your wells of inspiration. In peace, be nurtured by imagery, both visual and poetic. May you dream well.
