I had a wonderful time teaching my workshops at the Grail Springs Spa this past weekend. It’s am award winning spa in Bancroft Ontario about 2.5 hours north east of Toronto. A very magical spot,very intimate, the spa can only hold less than 30 people. I love to teach and initiate Tarot virgins.
It rained for most of the weekend, the trees were, just a few beginning to change colour.
An auspicious Tibetan native High Lama, the Venerable Khenpo Sonam Rinpoche from the Riwoche Temple of Toronto offered a very powerful fire ceremony to purify the world of greed, ignorance, suffering for the Equinox. It felt huge to me. The energy just went whoosh and I felt the power of the ceremony clearing away lots of negative energies in the world. Thank You. Each participant received a Kata or prayer scarf as a blessing. Very honoured to be there.
My 2 nights of workshops focussed on working with the Tarot, and of course the usual amazing synchonicities came up. The person who is the most freaked out usually gets The DEVIL card. I try to explain how the devil is a good thing. It is their shadow, their denied parts. It is a necessary part of creation. You can’t have the light without the dark. The person who is the most vulnerable and in major transition always gets the DEATH card or both. The Grail is a place to go for refuge in a very physical and spiritual way. Two women in the small group were forced to leave marriages of over twenty and twenty five years and start their lives anew. Some people are fighting serious illnesses- cancer and are detoxing.
I send all my participants to bed on the first night to sleep with one of the Major Arcana they have chosen under their pillow to dream with it. The one who sleeps with the Devil usually has an upsetting night. Some people are comforted by the Symbols of change-Death and Rebirth- Judgement # 20. For others there are stages of letting go, The HANGED MAN- trusting- THE FOOL, FAith- The MOON,and so on.
I led my Autumn Equinox ceremony indoors it was too wet outside. For most people it was their first time being in ceremony. I used my sacred Native drum. I had meditated on what was needed. ENERGY sharing. marrying the masculine and the Feminine. Alchemy.
I also got to do a wonderful meditation and yoga class they offer at the Grail. Simply chanting OHM, or HUE for 40 minutes was so powerful.
We also talked about the Sun’s magnetic field being at ZERO point now and its magnetic poles are about to flip. Here’s an article
You could see it as a possible “Solar awakening” if a Huge CME- happened,which is not mentioned in this article, which could take out all electric transformers on the planet all satelites etc. leaving us in the dark ages, so that we would have to co-operate to survive. Or perhaps we won’t feel it at all.
I did have a vision of huge CME- Coronal Mass Ejection coming years ago and wiping everything out. But my daughter who was 10 then, said but it would only last three days.
What’s your feeling about this? Feeling the need to move to the country and store food?
