The Magician | Lumina Tarot, Inner Hue 2015

You don't need the next hot thing to make your tarot or spiritual practice effective. As you scroll through Instagram, there is a bombardment of color! From shiny glittering crystals to vibrant new tarot decks, social media has it all. You may feel like you need to have 'all of the things' to make your practice deeper, more high vibe, or just all around trendy. You don't want to feel like you're missing out on anything - trust me, I get it! But I am here to tell you that you don't need all of the wonderful smelling essential oils, reiki charged candles, juicy crystals, luscious incense, and hot new decks to make your practice worthwhile. Remember - you are your practice. Not who you show the world, but who you actually are inside. You are a living embodiment of the work you're doing. The most fabulous products that money can buy won't change that. So when you're itching for the hot new thing, just know that you already have all you need to manifest your desires.

You have mystical flowing intuition that guides you and connects you to the Universe. Your spirit, your soul, is filled with a natural will power and determination for success. You have a brilliant mind and intellect to plan a course of action. And you have a body to use these gifts and make them a reality through the power of your human hands.

Go back to basics. Work with the natural tools the Universe has blessed you with - fire, water, earth, and air. Your ancestors worked with nature and all of her gifts. They used what the land and Spirit blessed them with. They didn't need to be trendy to trust that their practice was relevant! They didn't need validation from the tools they were using. Their connection was their validation! Work with your guides. Co-create with Spirit! For you inherently are a natural manifestor and a Magician of the ages.
