Oracle Decks
Rama Oracle
Above is a reading I was doing for myself using the Rama Oracle ... which I've been enjoying. We currently have 4 other new Oracles as well. A reading  can be just thinking of a person, event or question and picking a card or can be more extensive. These decks have wise and creative words that stimulate learning and awareness in a fun way. And they make great gifts of spirit.
Antique Soda bottles from Argentina

Amira and I were talking about how we used to judge ourselves so much
(along with judging life and everything in it!) And we realized "how over that" we are
now ... And what a relief! This hasn't diminished our awareness of our actions or reactions,
in fact it has made it easier to see ourselves.
We invite you to join us (especially in the dressingroom ... no sorry
guys ... it's still a women only dressingroom)  The dressingroom which is still being created ...
this coming week to be decorated ... is a room with a lot of acceptance  for each other...
but for ourselves (yes... Amira & I still susceptible) ... when you have a mirror ... those judgements pop up ...
And until we get new lighting in there it will give you a chance to watch those judgements
 like soap bubbles ... floating, bursting dissolving ... until Venus enters you ...
and you can BeYouToFull .... Hmmm ... beautiful ...
Time for a new beautiful year... Which is up to us ...
To how we dance with what comes our way ... including those crazy wild dances!
This year we thank Alexis and Josh for sharing their deepest dance ...
Alexis is still finding joy, beauty, love even while (and including) the intense missing of her awesome
son, Joshua. The grace with which he passed through his life inspired thousands.
She says if she can do this ... she knows anyone can ... She is sending Nelson Mandela's Inaugural Speech out to you and her community for this New Year.
Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure.
It is our light, not our darkness, that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, who am I to be brilliant,
gorgeous, talented and fabulous? Actually, who are you to not be? You are a child of God. Your playing small
doesn't serve the world. There's nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won't feel insecure around you. We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It is not in some of us; it is in everyone.
And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same.
As we are liberated from our own fear, Our presence automatically liberates others.
