This is Why I Do This

in Gaian Tarot

I hope you’ll indulge me while I share this note from Julie at Emerging Crone.  If I ever doubt myself and this seven-year journey to create the Gaian Tarot, it’s stories like this that get me back on track.  Thanks, Julie, for letting me share your story.

May I share another Gaian Tarot story with you? My best friend’s mom is in a “nursing” home recovering from surgery. She is getting discouraged and feeling very low. I set out to visit her on Monday and brought homemade treats and nourishing soup and I happened to have your Tarot cards in my backpack from a previous outing.

She and her husband are both artists and appreciate beauty – so on a lark – I started sharing the cards with her and asked her what she saw. She began to tell me of her night dreams and to talk about all sorts of things that I never knew about her life.

It was a sweet poignant visit – and as I spoke to my friend later that evening – we faced the possibility that she was declining and may not go home…

The next day – she had a burst of energy and passion and well being and vigor. I know that my visit was a piece of that but I also know that the imagery of the cards carries magic. Something in her was activated to heal and choose life after allowing her mind to wander through the landscapes she saw in the cards.

How totally cool is THAT! Magic is afoot!

Thank you from the tips of my toes…

Love and WILD Blessings to you!

Thoughtful, sparkling comments. . .

    I’m glad you continue to do what you do. I can tell you that each time I’ve used the on-line oracle I’ve gotten the most wonderful and confirming, revelations. Even through the internet, the Gaian Tarot spreads her magick. It’s a warm, tangible and reassuring feeling, like having that handmade winter blanket that you wrap up in when you’re feeling down… along with a cup of tea!

    Thank you for sharing this Joanna – it’s amazing what happens when we send our art out into the world.
