Inspiring Enchantment & Illumination with Tarot & Intuitive Guidance

Enchantment: To Hold Stillness

“Whenever there is stillness there is the still small voice, God’s speaking from the whirlwind, nature’s old song, and dance…” Annie Dillard

Give yourself over to the songs of the Earth, the music of stars, the Divine heartbeat that awakens you to prayer, peace, and beauty.

To Hold Stillness – This component of the Quaternary is an essential part of both growth and magic. It is the necessary release and then quiet that follows the build-up and direction of magic and change. For all that lives, after a birthing, there must be a retreat while the tender newborn is kept protected, unready to be exposed to the challenges and tasks of the world.

In this section of my Enchantment posts, you’ll find prayers, meditations, ways to reconnect to body, spirit, and the sacred Earth. Most of all, you will find that this is an island of peaceful intention within my website.

May you find blessings here.Labyrinth
