Part one of this series can be found here. TW: weights mentioned I wanted to address one issue I skimmed through in my blog about food, and that's the issue of being underweight as a result of mental issues. How eating disorders are, often, a result of a disjunction between mind and body, of mind… Continue reading Food and Consumption: The Dance of Mind, Body and Spirit
Those who know me know I have many issues with food, or more rightly, the ritual and circumstances surrounding the consumption of food. I would not say that I have a diagnosable eating disorder- and I have seen a psychiatrist and had been told that much (her exact words being, "Just get over it and eat… Continue reading Food: the substance between body and world
"There is a worm at the heart of the tower; that is why it will not stand." Neil Gaiman, Instructions Every time the Tower appears, I know I am to brace myself for some kind of momentous upheaval. Previously, the Tower has foreshadowed the toppling of narcissistic-type figures (ie. The Shadow Queen) or some kind of… Continue reading The Toppling of the Tower
The universe we live in is a reflective one, which we are continually 'casting' our intentions upon. Let me explain that in another way: everything we see or experience is reflective of what we are thinking or feeling at that moment. If you are thinking about someone you love, you are more likely to… Continue reading Tarot: A divination medium or a psychological tool?
When we hear the word 'twin flame' or 'soulmate', we usually romanticize about a person who completes us, so we do not have to do the dirty work of healing ourselves. In reality, soul relationships always involve either some kind of unresolved karma or, in the case of twin flames, to an imperative healing-to-be-done. In a twin… Continue reading Twin Souls and Soul-kin: a grounded perspective
We often think of Tarot as an airy-fairy thing, but I feel like all forms of 'spirituality' need to be balanced by equal or stronger grounding, if not you become too 'top heavy' (to borrow the words of my friend J). All the information enters from your crown, but with no roots to ground it in… Continue reading Grounding the Intuition: Using Tarot As a Tool for Self-Awareness
Lately, I have been part of a kind of cult recovery group on Facebook and through it, I have met many intuitive, smart, sensitive, empathetic and genuinely 'light' people: what you could call light workers. I also found out many of them had gone through similar early-childhood-and-after narcissistic abuse from family members, particularly narcissistic mothers.… Continue reading The Anatomy of a Shadow Queen
What is it like to be anxious? Let me tell you the ways. Being in anxiety is a bit like being stuck in a loop, unable to get out of it. Imagine that your brain has decided to go on auto-pilot apart from your body and your body, confused and disconnected, follows after it dragging,… Continue reading Hacking the Anxiety Monster
Edit: This is a repost of a blog entry I did a month ago. It was lost when I transferred the blog so I am re-posting it. 🙂 When I first got to Canada, I was surprised to learn that what were normal realities for me- spirituality, spirits, the existence of the soul- were treated… Continue reading East vs. West and "cultural appropriation"
Our friend Enya came over recently, as she often does when she needs refuge and space from her busy life in music school. When we were catching up, we spoke about a wide variety of topics, including what was in hold for her future. I explained to her how I saw futures as merely… Continue reading Finding Space In Heart and Mind
