Spiritual Tarot & Guidance 18th ~ 24th January 2021

Spiritual Tarot & Guidance 18th ~ 24th January 2021

The cards for this week are: Death, The Hierophant, The Knight of Cups, New Beginnings & The Wolf

Hello everyone as always I hope this weeks reading finds you safe and well!

The first card in this weeks Spiritual Tarot & Guidance reading is the Death Card and is sometimes the most feared and misunderstood card in Tarot. Although sometimes the card can mean death and we most certainly have had a lot of it over the past months, it is not the only meaning behind this card.

May I please say at this point that my sympathies and condolences go out to all of you who have lost loved ones during the current pandemic and for any other reasons. It has touched us all in one way another including myself.

The more positive and spiritual meaning behind the Death card is one of endings and new beginnings. For change to happen something must come to an end. Change is something that is inevitable whether we choose to ignore it or try to avoid it, it will happen, it is the way we both learn and grow and it is something that we need to embrace and not fear. This I feel is the message that the spiritual and angelic realms are sending us through this card.

To support the Death card we have then been given the first of this weeks energy cards. The card of New Beginnings. It is the first of the Major arcana cards in the Psychic Tarot deck and the equivalent of the Fool card in most other tarot decks.

Our next card in this weeks Spiritual Tarot & Guidance reading chosen as always with the help and support of the spirit and angelic realms is also a Major Tarot arcana card and is the Hierophant. The Hierophant is sometimes known in tarot as the spiritual teacher.

His appearance in a reading can suggest that we are sticking to tried and trusted ways of doing things because it’s the way it’s always been done or maybe we stick rigidly to our beliefs because it is the way we have been taught or guided to in the past. For example staying in a job or career because it’s what our parents want us to do, even though we are not happy in the job and really wanting to do something else that we would love to do.

Our 3rd and final tarot card for this weeks reading is the Knight of Cups. The Knight of Cups is known and often recognised by tarot readers as the true romantic, and while for some of you there may be a new romance or rekindling of a present or previous one, I feel the main message the spirit and angelic realms wish to draw our attention to for the purpose of this reading are his other qualities. These qualities are his appreciation of beautiful things including mother nature herself. He shares and gives his love freely to others, he is imaginative and creative and follows his dreams.

Our final card for this weeks Spiritual Tarot & Guidance reading and the second of this weeks energy cards is the Wolf. The message behind this card is about using our instincts. The Wolf card I feel was chosen by the spirit and angelic realms to support the message of the Hierophant and the Knight of Cups. The Wolf can travel alone or in packs, it is a free spirit and follows no set rules or conformities.

The Wolf is loyal and protective towards his family but relies on his own instincts to survive. He does not always follow the pack although he knows there is safety in numbers. He relies on his instincts before acting or making his decisions and trusts that his instincts will help him make the right choice.


I feel the overall message that the spirit and angelic realms are wishing to portray to us in this weeks message is our need to identify and accept that change is inevitable. We need to accept that our lives are, have and always will change in some way during our current lifetime on this earth. Everyone’s life has been affect by change greatly in some way over the past months. The advice from the spirit and angelic realms is to accept it gracefully, flow with it instead of fighting against it. This is their message I feel through both the Death card and the one of New Beginnings.

Through the remaining cards The Hierophant, The Knight of Cups and The Wolf. I feel that we are being asked by spirit to not always “follow the pack” while their maybe safety in numbers it is not always the right path to follow. They wish us to be like the Wolf and the Knight of Cups to be nurturing and loving towards ourselves, our loved ones, our fellow man and the planet on which we live. They remind us that humans are not the only creation that inhabit this planet.

We are being guided as we have been before by the spirit and angelic realms also to take note of the Hierophant and not allow ourselves to get stuck in our old ways and habits of doing things because it’s the way it’s always been done, or because it was the way we were taught or told that it is the right way or only way. They are asking us to be again to like the wolf, to use and trust our own instincts, our own intuition to guide us before making decisions and moving forward with our plans.

Their message through the Hierophant is that once you have made your decision to act in any way, make sure that any advice you may need or follow is from a reliable source. Remember there are always those who “think” they know. But they may be an unreliable source. Use your Wolf instincts and intuition, and do not always follow the pack.

I hope that this weeks Spiritual Tarot & Guidance reading has helped and given you support in some way. The messages from the Spiritual & Angelic realms are always bought to you on an energy of love, compassion and understanding.

I will say it again as I always do, take some time out for yourself, It is allowed !”

Until next time…. please take care and stay safe.

8 Ways To Sharpen Your Intuition

8 Ways To Sharpen Your Intuition and Make Your Life Better.

8 Ways To Sharpen Your Intuition and Make Your Life Better

I am blessed in many ways.

One thing that I am particularly grateful for is the fact that over the years I have been able to connect with a steady clientele of people who are willing to listen to their inner voice and create successful lives. My clients are people who have had enough with being depressed, stressed, emotionally unhappy, perpetually dieting, or living with low self-worth. They choose to work with me because they want more.

With my front row seat to how these personal growth oriented people think and behave, I have come to the conclusion that they share at least one thing in common: They allow themselves to reach forward into the desire of living their full potential, to have more happiness, more emotional well-being, and more fulfilment. They may have only the tiniest speck of hope that life can be better, but they are willing to use that speck to take their next step forward. That’s their biggest secret.

These people are aware that although their current situation may feel stuck or overwhelming, life doesn’t change on its own. They are willing to take responsibility for themselves to have more fullness of life. From the depths of their despair, emotional distress, or personal suffering, they are willing to reach for a greater life experience.

In short, these people put their faith in that tiny voice inside that tells them more is possible. Despite major life challenges, they listen to their intuition and allow themselves to become curious to explore their own limits of what is possible. In thinking about how some people allow themselves to want more for themselves, I realised how important it is to look beyond the voice of despair, no matter how loud it may be, and learn to listen for the voice of intuition.

What Is Intuition?

Intuition is the ability to get a sense, understanding, or feeling about something. Your intuition is an aspect of you, it is an extension of you. It is how you speak to yourself about getting yourself together and making new choices that move you forward into advantageous possibilities. Your intuition can help you see when you are staying in your balance, or if you are getting pulled out of your balance by other people or events.

It has been said that intuition is your own voice of higher consciousness, or your own divine spirit talking to you. Intuition is not from the logical mind, but from a higher perspective. Albert Einstein once said, “The intellect has little to do on the road to discovery. There comes a leap in consciousness, call it intuition or what you will, the solution come to you and you don’t know how or why. The truly valuable thing is intuition.”

Even if you have not been accustomed to listening to your intuition, or trusting your intuition, you have this amazing power! Read below for the eight best strategies to help you hone your intuitive abilities to assist you in making better decisions for your life.

1. Self-Love

Intuition is not something outside of yourself. It is not someone else telling you what to do. Intuition is your own higher perspective. It is your own desire to express yourself creatively in all that you do. Your intuition is your infinite capacity to search for, and find, creative solutions for your challenges and your life. Most everyone already knows that when you ignore intuition, the situation does not generally turn out so well. Allowing yourself to invite more of your intuition into your life is a powerful act of self-love. By embracing your intuition, you show compassion for yourself and make the choice to bring more positive outcomes into your life.

2. Listen To Your Body

Intuition is accurate information from your spirit. Your intuitive messages can come in a number of forms. You may hear actual words, see a clear image, or have a deep inner knowingness. Your intuition may communicate with you in the form of hunches, insights, Aha! moments, a feeling, a sixth sense, or various types of body sensations. You may also experience intuition by noticing synchronicities. Set your intention to notice the many individual ways your intuition communicates with you.

3. Embrace Quietness

Intuition is initially often a quiet, gentle nudge. It generally does not shout loud enough to be heard over your stress, upset, frustration, anger, or judgement. Spending some quiet contemplative time each day is good way to strengthen your intuitive voice. Simply sit in a quiet place every day for about 1 to 20 minutes. Take a deep breath, and ask, “What is it I need to know?” or, “What will move me one step closer to a more fulfilling and meaningful life. Then be open. Release your need to think, analyse, and know everything. The best information comes from the quiet guidance of your own intuition.

4. Sit With Your Problem

Try this experiment. When something is deeply troubling you, just sit with it. Don’t do anything to logically fix or solve the problem. Instead, just sit, place your intention on allowing the best possible outcome, and breathe. See if you can step away from the negative thoughts circling with frenzy within your head. Your intuition sees many creative ways to bring about a goal or bring about a positive outcome to your situation. Your job is to stop fretting and stressing with the problem, and instead place your focus on being open to amazing new potentials. Make the decision to allow your intuition to get involved in your life.

5. Play Games With Your Intuition

Play fun little games with yourself that allow intuition to expand. For example, when standing in front of a bank of elevators, ask your intuition to “tell” you which elevator will reach your floor first. If you guess correctly, make a big deal of it. Let your intuition know it did a great job and how happy you are to hear from it. Notice how good you feel and breathe into that feeling. Let yourself know that you want more of this type of intuition that feels good. It doesn’t matter if your correct guess was just a fluke or actually intuition.

Your purpose is not to second guess, but to build up more of what you want. If you guessed incorrectly, just shrug it off. Let your intuition know that you may have ignored it in the past, but you are now ready to begin listening and taking action on its wisdom. Have some patience with yourself. Once you decide that you want more intuitive information in your life, it will begin showing up. Allow yourself to turn those initial little successes into avenues of greater intuition.

6. Ask Intuition Based Questions

Questioning is one of the best ways to develop stronger intuition and gain clarity and insight. When getting in touch with your intuitive self, ask questions that would lead you forward into positive solutions. Ask clearly formed questions that allow clear answers. For example, you might ask, “What is the next step I could take that would bring new energy and new passion?” Intuition can bring you down paths you hadn’t considered.

Intuition can show you new paths to try and new possibilities. Your intuition is infinitely inventive. When listening for your intuitive answers, remember that you may get your answers from a variety of sources including hunches, coincidences, feelings, words, or even physical sensations.

7. Follow Your Intuitive Hunches

Once you get an intuitive idea, decide to take action. It doesn’t have to be a huge life changing action, but you can take one small, comfortable step in the direction of your intuitive guidance. On a day-to-day basis, allow your intuition to play a bigger role in your life. If you have a sense to take a left turn instead of a right turn, follow through and go left. If you are grocery shopping and the broccoli somehow calls to you instead of the carrots you had intended to purchase, buy the broccoli.

You don’t need to logically question “why” you turned left or bought broccoli. Your goal is to create a bond of trust between your logical self and your intuitive self. When you fail to follow your hunches and gut feelings, talk to your intuition. Tell it that it did a fine job of providing useful information. Let it know that yes, it would have been wise to follow through with the intuitive course of action, but this time you choose not to. However, let your intuition know that you still want the input even though you might not always listen.

8. Journal

Writing is a gateway to the soul which means it is also a gateway to your intuition. Exploring with pen and paper allows a process to unfold of reconnecting with hidden aspects of your self. It helps you speak out, allowing ideas to become tangible words. It allows vague concepts to take shape in the safety of a journal.

Writing is a power tool that allows what is often locked away inside to have access into the world. It allows you to feel into your physical body and connect with intuition, creativity, and imagination. Writing allows the time to find precisely the right words or the most powerful images to express your self. It takes fuzzy or confusing images and brings them into sharp focus. Writing is an easy way to gain insight from your intuition.

Intuition is your higher perspective and guidance. Since it is an aspect of you, it holds your best interests for creating a fulfilling and meaningful life. Intuition is your urge to creatively manifest your most fulfilling and meaningful life, your goals, your dreams, and all that is good and beautiful. Utilise these eight suggestions to sharpen your intuition and you will be surprised at how often it will give you a short cut to the life and outcomes you want.

Tarot card for this week ~ The High Priestess

This weeks card is the High Priestess (13th July - 19th July 2020) The High Priestess is a card of intuition, psychic insights of dreams and visions, a card of meditation, of looking deep into ourselves and spiritual experiences.
The High Priestess

This weeks card is the High Priestess (13th July – 19th July 2020)

The High Priestess is a card of intuition, psychic insights of dreams and visions, a card of meditation, of looking deep into ourselves and spiritual experiences.

The high priestess talks to you through your subconscious mind. She sits at the border between this world and the spiritual realms. She communicates with you through those nagging feelings that something just isn’t right, just doesn’t feel right.

Very often our psychic insight (The High Priestess) tries to communicate with us through the part us we often ignore, either through lack of patience, telling ourselves we are just imaging things or that we are just being plain silly when doubts come to mind about a person or situation. We may tell ourselves that we are just over thinking a situation. Or maybe sometimes we don;t want to believe or hear what our intuition is telling us!

Gut Instinct.

This is the High Priestess talking to us, it’s something we can all relate to, that Gut Feeling that someone or something just isn’t right. you meet someone for the first time and you get that feeling about them you just don’t like.

You may be about to sign a contract, or receive a new job offer that you are keen to take because you need the income or extra income, but doubts keep nagging away at you, maybe something you just can’t put your finger on. This is the High Priestess trying to communicate through our subconscious mind, our intuition.

Dreams

Maybe you have had recurring dreams about someone or a situation and they keep repeating but you ignore them because “well it’s only a dream after all“. We have all done this at sometime or another. This is the High Priestess again trying to get in touch with us.

Meditation

Is a great way to “spend sometime with yourself” and the High Priestess. A time when your mind is much calmer and she can be heard and speak more clearly to us. If you are not a believer in meditation or feel you just don’t have time to meditate, then when your gut turns at a thought or feeling you have about a person or situation or a decision you have to make, just take a step back, don’t “rush in”.

Draw a line between you and the person and don’t let them cross it. Take a little more time before making that decision, step back from a situation so that you can “see more clearly”. Let the High Priestess speak to you and guide you.

For the week ahead…

Think back to all the times the High Priestess has attempted to speak to you through your intuition, gut instinct, thoughts and dreams.

Think back to the many times have you ignored synchronicity? Events that have happened one after the other and you chose to ignore them and as a result you didn’t get the outcome you desired. Only to say to yourself after “I knew it!”, Why didn’t I listen to myself!”

Again as I always say take some “time out for yourself” it is allowed! If you are struggling with situations, people or decisions then take a little time out, try to relax and let the High Priestess to talk to you and guide you. Trust your intuition, your “gut instinct” this her trying to speak to you, trying to guide you and help you. Learn to listen to her and trust her.

Until next time…. please take care and stay safe.

Moving beyond the ego barrier

“I did it! I finally had the courage and saw it through. I never thought I could. It worked! I can’t believe it worked!”

When the ego is out of control and too big for its boots, it hinders the natural path of intuition, intuitive instinct and psychic ability. The ego self will deny the presence of intuition and rely heavily on logic, reason and emotional fears rather than embrace higher thinking automatically.

She stepped outside the ego

These are the words of a woman I had been talking to about the behaviour of her teenage daughter.

Her child had become so difficult that the mother was desperate. I saw the solution quite clearly. It came to me so strongly and firmly, controversially but I knew from the deepest part of me it would work and the two of them could resolve and have a brilliant relationship.

How did I know it was the right thing to say? How did I know it would resolve their difficulties? When your ego works in harmony with you it is easy for you to link with and trust your intuition and psychic perceptions.

When the ego is out of control and too big for its boots, it hinders the natural path of intuition, intuitive instinct and psychic ability. The ego self will deny the presence of intuition and rely heavily on logic, reason and emotional fears rather than embrace higher thinking automatically.

When developing psychic ability, at some point or another, people go through a period of time when an argument erupts between the inner ‘ego’ and ‘higher thinking’. The ego doesn’t like change; it is a creature of habit which is there to protect the physical existence of the human body.

It is the part of you that knows stepping out in front of a moving bus means you get squashed. That is its purpose: it is there to remind you to protect the physical. The all-knowing part of you, however, is aware it is eternal and forgets it must look after the vehicle it travels in during this lifetime.

How do you tell the difference between ego and intuition?

Your intuition is relentless and cannot be budged from its position whereas the ego can be talked into and out of anything. An example would be if your intuition told you to pursue a particular career. No human on earth could truly talk you out of that feeling. They may be able to talk you out of following that feeling but never out of recognising that feeling.

It is often difficult to recognise which parts of you operate from the ego self. In this case we will use ‘ego’ to loosely describe fear or fear-based actions. Many of our fears operate without us fully participating or recognising what is taking place.

When we start to develop our psychic skills, it is more difficult for the ego to take control. This is why many people on the psychic path find it increasingly difficult to deny their truth. They find it challenging to: stay in situations or places that no longer suit; tell someone they are being mean rather than ignore it; suddenly change a job that they’ve been meaning to do for the past five years.

These are all signs that they are getting a handle on the ego self and its control over them. It starts to operate in the form it was meant to and begins to work in harmony with, rather than against, the deep, never-ending knowledge of your instinctual intuitive self.

Today the woman and her daughter are talking again. Both are equally respectful of the other. It took less than a week to fix. She had previously been trying for months, even years. She did not have to sit down and read her daughter the riot act. She simple followed something scary and out of her everyday mindset.

She stepped outside the ego.

Intuition ~ an Intuitive’s View

Intuition

In these days of burgeoning interest in all topics metaphysics, intuition and psychic phenomena have piqued the curiosity of many. Indeed, we have all, by and large, been fascinated by accounts of experiences involving psi (that elusive “x” factor that causes psychic phenomena), usually assuming that these phenomena belong to a realm out-of-the-ordinary and are not within the daily purview of most of us “common folk.”

In these days of burgeoning interest in all topics metaphysic, intuition and psychic phenomena have piqued the curiosity of many. Indeed, we have all, by and large, been fascinated by accounts of experiences.

As one who has delved more and more deeply into the world of intuition as a practising intuitive, albeit somewhat unintentionally, I would like to share some of the things I’ve learned about these interest-provoking, yet little understood phenomena. I say “albeit somewhat unintentionally” because I did not set out years ago to have this as a career goal: it was not what I majored in in college nor something I had ever seen myself doing. However, at the same time, being somewhat of a “reluctant” intuitive has given me an interesting perspective on this often misperceived topic as I had to develop and work with a faculty I didn’t even know was there.

I think what most of us do is to assume that intuitive/psychic phenomena are something that other people experience (and I’ll use these terms interchangeably in this article to refer to informational phenomena, rather than other forms involving psychokinesis, teleportation, etc.). One thing (of the many) that I’ve learned from doing this work is that everyone is intuitive and can have “psychic experiences.” Intuition is democratic; it really is everyone’s birthright.

I’ve also learned that what I used to consider as other-worldly really is a very natural part of life. Intuition and psychic knowing are actually another form of intelligence, another way of knowing and apprehending. For those who are interested in developing and using their full mental and knowing potential, developing and using their intuition is essential.

However, one flip side of this aspect of intuition is that, because intuition really is a form of intelligence, it is not always connected to spirituality. We have often assumed that intuitive’s, just because they are intuitive, are spiritually oriented; this ain’t necessarily so! As an ability, it can be used for good or ill, just like anything else.

Consider, for example, the reports of psychics who tell vulnerable clients that they have a curse on them and they can remove it for some exorbitant fee. Although this sort of misuse would appear to be in the minority, the point is that spirituality is not always a correlate of psychic ability nor, conversely, is psychic ability necessarily a portal to mystical wisdom and higher knowing. When the two are combined, however, ah, now that’s a beautiful thing! But I’m digressing….

One fascinating aspect of intuition is that it can come in many different forms and, just as I am convinced that everyone has intuitive ability, so too have I learned that the form it can take can vary greatly from one person to another.

I always assumed that intuitive or psychic information came in the form of sudden, strong awareness, almost like being hit by information, and, indeed, some people do get information like this. Intuitive insights can also be very subtle — a sense or feeling or impression about something.

And some people simply have a knowing about things; this knowing can be so deep that it will often be there with no effort, as if by osmosis, a knowing that is deeply integrated and ingrained and may just come to conscious awareness at the appropriate time. One just knows — without knowing how one knows or when one came to know.

Aside from the strength or subtlety of these awarenesses, the form can vary greatly as well. Some people will see images or hear voices (either literally through the auditory faculties of their ears or in their heads or minds). Some may see or sense colors. Others may have an impression that does not come in the form of one of the five senses.

Some people are very sensitive to energy, whether it’s the energy of a place or location, people’s energy, geological or geothermal energy, nature energy, animal or plant energy, or even color or light energy. Some people are sensitive to the energy of objects, receiving information from holding them. This latter form is called psychometry and many forensic psychics who specialize in working with police on solving crimes work with this form.

The type of information that comes from intuition can also vary. We have all had mundane experiences where we think of a song right before it’s played on the radio or think of someone just before they call on the phone. Psychic information can come in the form of events — what is going to happen — whether trivial or significant. It can also come in the form of meaning, what the meaning or significance is of what someone is going through.

There are truly many variations on the forms and types of intuitive experiences and the information they may provide, as well as the way they come to people. I am often asked by clients how I receive my information and what form it comes in.

It took me a long time to figure this out and to know how to respond, because I was not doing what I thought an intuitive did (or should do?). (I read people’s energy — directly experiencing it — on a level not usually associated with the body, receive information, and work to interpret it — usually in the form of a direct experiencing that is difficult to define, a sense, an impression, sometimes visual images, sometimes words or quotations, sometimes colours, etc.

I am particularly sensitive to people’s and animals’ energy. And I also have a deeply seated knowing about things.) Some intuitive’s/psychics specialise in certain types of phenomena or information: some specialise in health, working as medical intuitive’s; some, in finding missing people or lost objects; some, in communicating with passed-on loved ones; some, in animal communication; etc. Some people directly access their information; others work with guides as intermediaries.

The point I would like to make is that intuition/psychic informational experiences are a much richer, more complex, and diversified phenomena than most of us have realised and, because of their richness and complex beauty, are well deserving of our admiration as another of the universe’s creations and marvels.

We can all have one or more types of intuition in one or more forms. The information or content we get can run the gamut from the mundane to the divinely sublime. But we all usually have some form or forms of it, and, if we’re truly open and don’t put preconceived terms and self-imposed limitations on it, can receive many different types of information in different forms.

The trick is to start to work with what we have (and may not even know that we have). Ofttimes someone will have an ability and just assume that everyone else does. For instance, a gifted healer I know has always been able to see people’s organs and assumed that everyone else had this trait.

It is in starting to work with what we have that we start to open up the treasure chest that we have been given in our lives. There are many benefits of doing this aside from the trivial and temporary side effects of wowing or entertaining ourselves or others, or of simply manipulating energy or playing psychic games.

We can have many practical benefits in our lives with regard to information that can be helpful to us in a practical, quotidian fashion. For instance, we have all heard about people averting potential tragedy or catastrophe by heeding gut feelings or other intuitive information they received.

In addition and quite significantly, when we begin to tap into our own intuitive/psychic knowing ability, we begin to strengthen in ourselves. Once we begin to develop our own knowing, it is very powerful and deepening. No one can take that away from us. With knowing comes the beginning of understanding. And with understanding and insight can come wisdom if we are so open and so inclined.

There are many ways of starting to develop our innate gifts. There are several very good books on this subject that are available. I as well as others have taught workshops on this. One can just practice and feel one’s way along.

The key is to know how it works for us and also simply to believe that it is indeed there. We have to first acknowledge and own that we do, in fact, have some form(s) of intuitive ability. Once we figure out how ours manifests, we must honor our gifts and their form(s).

“One tricky little potential sticky point to using intuition/psychic ability is in learning to distinguish what is true knowing from what may be coming from our own “stuff” — our wants, needs, fears, mindsets, beliefs, etc. True intuition is not coloured by emotional feelings; it is neutral, colourless. Nor is it filtered through our mindsets or cultural filters. If we get a feeling about something that is tinged with, for example, fear, it may just be coming from our own issues. Pure intuitive information is just that: pure, and uncontaminated by our “stuff.”

One reason why it may have been more difficult for us in our contemporary Western culture to work with our intuition, aside from the fact that it hasn’t been valued in our culture, is that it often works in a different way from our normally used and encouraged faculties. Intuition is receptive. It is a receiving of information, which is a different mode from that of our left-brain logical modes which are active as we analyse and probe.

Instead of trying to figure things out intuitively (which doesn’t work because it’s a figurative oxymoron), we must instead receive information, paying attention to what comes. I am convinced that we all receive information all the time. It’s just that we aren’t trained or encouraged to pay attention to these subtleties. As a matter of fact, I am convinced that we are all spoken to all the time by this wonderful universe, if we are inclined to listen or pay attention to the signs we are given.

It is perhaps my own personal prejudice, but I also feel that the highest manifestations of intuition/psychic information come in a spiritual form and/or have spiritual relevance — that give us information for our own progress on our paths (or for others on their paths). I haven’t figured it all out yet, but I have a strong sense that the more we connect to the knowing place within ourselves, the more we also connect to the divine. And the more we consciously connect with the divine, the more true knowing we have.

We don’t have to become professional practicing intuitives or psychics to develop our potential and benefit from it. Intuition is real. It is a very natural part of life. And it can be yours if you desire for it to be. It can enrich your life, as well as that of others around you. And it is deserving of our respect, because it can serve a quite honorable purpose.
