The Fool’s Journey

If you are familiar to using Tarot Cards, you will notice most of the tarot deck has the Fool as the beginning card, the starting of the journey through life. The Fool’s Journey is a metaphor for the journey through our life.

We begin with the Fool (0), a card of beginnings. The Fool stands for each of us as we begin our journey of life. We are a fool because only a simple soul has the innocent faith to undertake such a journey with all its hazards and pain.
At the start of our trip, the Fool is a newborn – fresh, open and spontaneous.

You will see that in the Fool Card, the man has his arms flung wide, and his head held high. He is ready to embrace whatever comes his way, but he is also oblivious to the cliff edge he is about to cross. The Fool is unaware of the hardships he will face as he ventures out to learn the lessons of the world. Isn’t this familiar in our life?

The Fool stands somewhat outside the rest of the major arcana. Zero is an unusual number. It rests in the exact middle of the number system – poised between the positive and negative. At birth, the Fool is set in the middle of his own individual universe. He is strangely empty (as is zero), but imbued with a desire to go forth and learn. This undertaking would seem to be folly, but is it?

It is important that we realize that we are the Fool and the Journey of the Fool is our own adventure through the magical realm of archetypal energies. The Fool an everyman character,is how we begin and how we end, from our childish wobbles and gibberish to our drooling dotage.

“The fool doth think he is wise, but the wise man knows himself to be a fool.” – Touchstone in ‘As You Like It’

Namaste!

Love & Compassion brings us Happiness , Confidence and Self-worth

The reason why love and compassion bring the greatest happiness is simply that our nature cherishes them above all else. The need for love lies at the very foundation of human existence. It results from the profound interdependence we all share with one another. We are all connected as One.

However capable and skillful an individual may be, left alone, he or she will not survive. However vigorous and independent one may feel during the most prosperous periods of life, when one is sick or very young or very old, one must depend on the support of others.

Inter-dependence, of course, is a fundamental law of nature. Not only higher forms of life but also many of the smallest insects are social beings who, without any religion, law or education, survive by mutual cooperation based on an innate recognition of their interconnectedness. The most subtle level of material phenomena is also governed by interdependence. All phenomena from the planet we inhabit to the oceans, clouds, forests and flowers that surround us, arise in dependence upon subtle patterns of energy. Without their proper interaction, they dissolve and decay.

It is because our own human existence is so dependent on the help of others that our need for love lies at the very foundation of our existence. Therefore we need a genuine sense of responsibility and a sincere concern for the welfare of others.

If you have a sincere and open heart, you naturally feel self- worth and confidence, and there is no need to be fearful of others.  

Namaste !

12th March 2016 Connective Session: Awakening Series : Self Inventory

A self-inventory report is a type of psychological test often used in personality assessment. A typical self-report inventory presents a number of questions or statements that may or may not describe certain qualities or characteristics of the test subject. 

I have goggled for a definition of Self Inventory though nothing come close to what we had done for Self-Inventory discussion in our last meetup.

Last gathering, Katherine uses a method which is a little similar to Self Inventory report but was totally verbal.  14 questions were asked verbally and everyone had to answer YES/NO/Others (Don’t know , Neutral , etc..) to the questions without much thinking. The objective is to find out where and what are the resistances to the participants.

From the feedback, we can then explore the “Blueprint of the Inner Consciousness’ of the person.

Prior to the gathering, each participants were asked to prepare their five important pillars in their life. The pillars can be but not limited to Materials Success , Love & Romance , Health & Well Being , Family and Spirituality. During the gathering, the participants were asked to place their Life Pillars freely for the use in a Self Inventory Layout Tarot Spread. From the spread, we can then be guided which pillars received the most & least resistance and how we can then navigate our energy patterns or frequency towards a positive setting for self -alignment.

Till our next gathering. Namaste Om!

12th Oct 2014 Connective Session: The Mirror Spread

In this class, we explored  a tarot spread layout – The Mirror Reflective Spread.

This is a fourteen card Tarot spread that looks at the internal and external part of the subject or events. We should read the 14  cards individually and proceed reading the 14 cards to one big picture of the reading.

The Mirror Spread of the Tarot is a very effective tool for gaining insight into problems or difficulties concerning relationships ; any form of relationships. For instance, relationship with self, romance partners, business partners etc…

Preparing to Lay Out the Mirror Spread

Each Tarot reader will have a different way of preparing for a reading. Some meditate, some just jump right in. Most will have a ritual of some kind, even if it only involves unwrapping the Tarot cards from their protective black cloth and spreading this cloth upon the reading surface.

For the Mirror Spread, both the Major Arcana and the Minor Arcana should be shuffled together. There is no firm rule for shuffling these cards. Most Tarot readers simply shuffle until they are satisfied, and then proceed with the reading.  I usually advise people to shuffle their age to cleanse the existing energies of their deck before they proceed on a new question.While shuffling, it is important that you maintain absolute focus on the relationship in question.

Once shuffled, all seventy-eight Tarot cards should be spread face-down. Then making sure that each card is placed precisely. The more precise the placement, the more accurate the reading.

The Mirror Spread of the Tarot can reveal depths to a relationship, new or old, of which you may not have been aware. Remember that any major life decision should not be made solely based on what a Tarot spread may or may not indicate. However, the Mirror Spread can be used to gain additional insight/guidance when it is needed.

Till our next session.

Namaste!

7th Sept 2014 Connective Session: Tarot Major Arcana

The Major Arcana Tarot card meanings illustrate the structure of human consciousness and, as such, hold the keys to life lessons passed down through the ages. The imagery of the Major Arcana Tarot cards is filled with wisdom from multiple cultures and esoteric traditions, including the Egyptian, Buddhist, Hindu, Sufi, Hebrew and Christian religions.

The word ‘arcana’ is the plural of ‘arcanum’, which means ‘profound secret’. To the alchemists of the Middle Ages, the ‘arcanum’ was the ‘secret of nature’.

Therefore, the Tarot is a collection of the ‘secrets’ that underlie and explain our complex Universe.

The Major Arcana alone can interpret their messages regarding the soul’s journey through life, and the archetypal aspects of your character. The Major Arcana symbolizes the aspects of the Universal human experiences. They represent the archetypes and patterns of influence that are an inherent part of human nature.

Therefore it is important to study the images of the Major Arcana cards and contemplate their messages. Look beyond the simple keywords and traditional Tarot card meanings, and seek out your own personal meanings of these significant cards. The more you understand about their symbolism, the deeper your understanding of what they represent.

This class we delve deeper into each major arcana. Each participant is given a list of keywords associated with each major card. It is possible to conduct a Tarot reading only using the twenty-two Major Arcana cards. This method is typically used for Tarot readings relating to spiritual self-awareness or where you require deep insight from the collective unconscious.

Till our next session in end September.

Namaste!

30th August 2014 Connective Session: Tarot Numerology

One of the most ancient applications of the science of Numerology has to do with the design and creation of the Tarot cards.

The numbers on each Tarot card are enormously significant in the interpretation of their meanings. Each Tarot card is specifically numbers, and the images on each card reverberates in order to convey its meaning to the reader or interpreter, who then analyses such matters as current issues, relationships, future options and choices and the like.

Numerology is the study of numbers and their incredible effect on our lives. Numerology could, however, be better named ‘The Science of Numbers’. Numbers have been in existence since the beginning of time and predates all Alphabets.

This class we invest our time to study numbers with our tarots. A list of number 0-9 are given to the participants together with corresponding keywords to guide us along. For example, the number 7 is a spiritual number. Key words associated with number 7 includes: natural healer, inner-strength,inner-selves, intuition, inner-knowing etc..

Each number has a different vibration, and can therefore give us a better understanding of one’s pathway, and the circumstances which surround our life. It can direct one to the career best suited to each person, and gives us the opportunity to be more aware of the talents we have and of the pathways we choose to utilize them. It also tells us of the compatibility we have with another, especially who would be most compatible as a partner for you. It tells you how you may best help your family and friends, due to the numbers which control their lives.

Each number is influenced by a different planet in our Solar System. Each letter of the alphabet vibrates to a given number, 1 – 9, which is also the span of our life cycles. These numbers under which we were born, plus the numbers in our names, are the tools we are given in order that we may accomplish our mission in life, and enable us to work through all our Karmic Lessons. The Vibratory Power of each number affects us in both Positive and Negative ways.

Combining your tarot reading with numerology gives in depth reading to the enquirer. 

Start appreciating numbers with your tarot.

Namaste!

 

July 12 2014 Connective Session: Who are your guardian angels.

Everybody on this planet has a guardian angel — it’s about time you talk to yours! They are waiting patiently by your side to ease you through the trials and tribulations of everyday life. Even if you’re skeptical at first, there’s no harm in giving it a try – everyone needs a sympathetic ear from time to time, don’t they?

Spirit Guides

Guardian angels are sometimes confused with “spirit guides.” A spirit guide is a loving being who has lived upon the earth in human form. This person then received special training in the afterlife about how to become a spirit guide.

Angels

These are the beings of light who respond to our calls for guidance, assistance, protection, and comfort. God’s thoughts of love create angels. The angels are here to help us, especially when our intent is to bring joy and healing to the world. Ask for as many angels as you want to surround you. Ask for angels to surround your loved ones, your home, and your business. Angels receive great joy at helping us, and they ask only that we occasionally remember to say, “Thank you” in gratitude for their help.

Archangels

These are the angels who supervise the guardian angels and angels upon the earth. You might think of archangels as the “managers” among the earthly angels’ hierarchy. You can call upon an archangel whenever you need powerful and immediate assistance.

In this class, we are bless to connect with our guardian angel and spirit guides. A session of series meditations to connect with our guides. 

  1. Go into a state of meditation.
  2. Greet your angel.
  3. Get to know your angel.
  4. Always remember to say goodbye and show gratitude to your angel
  5. Practice. Meditation is an art of itself and so is talking to your angel. You may find that at the beginning you’re not really feeling what you’re hoping to feel. Don’t worry; that will go away with time.

We also used our tarot cards to guide us in connecting with our guardian angels. Below is the spread we use.

June 28th 2014 Connective Session: Half Yearly Review

By doing half yearly review, I find that it helps me take stock of what went well and why, and what I need to work on.

I like to think that if I’m 6 months into the year, then technically I should be a half of the way through my goals.

Well, I know it’s not that simple or straightforward but it helps to have something to aim towards. 

We are nearly half-way through the year and my question to you is this – are you on track with your goals?

Over the last six months we have dropped a goal, missed some and just reached others. I enjoy the half yearly goals check up. I see it as a time to review, refocus and restart. Sometimes we have dwelled too much on what we haven’t achieved and not recognised appropriately or celebrated our successes. This is a chance to reward ourselves if our goals are accomplished. 

Reviews my 2014 goals are: 

  1. Me – I am less rushed and more peaceful. Investing time to increase my knowledge on dharma.
  2. Family  –  I spend more time chatting with mum to know her thoughts and emotions. Quality conversations.
  3. Relationship – We have more time together on our own and support each others interests. We spend more QUALITY time doing things together, such as DIY crafts and leave our car at home and do the walks to the supermarket or the evening walks in the park.
  4. Work –Need to improved on this area!
  5. House – Middle of the renovation and should be ready for new house warming by November this year.
  6. Family Planning – Need to improved on this area!
  7. Financial Planning/Investment – On track and need to find new resources and networks. 

Why It’s So Important to Have Time to Think about our status of our yearly goals (and How to Find It)?

Take the time each and every day to recharge and think.

You can’t think of big pictures without actually having the time and the space to step back. You need to do this without clients calling you every three seconds, without the to-do lists that weigh heavy on your shoulders, and if you can afford it, a retreat might actually be the best way to do it.

I couldn’t afford a retreat this year in time, but I found a few other ways to disconnect from everything and take the time to think about the overall scope of my business and my career. Here are a few:

  1. Go for a daily run.
  2. Take an hour before bed to think about your goals
  3. Travel
  4. Meditate & Tarot Guidance

How are you going with your goals for 2014?

Till our next class.

 

May 31st 2014 Connective Session: Searching for a Meaning

Life is not primarily a quest for pleasure or a quest for power but a quest for meaning.

The greatest task for any person is to find meaning in his or her life.  Some saw three possible sources for meaning:
a] in work (doing something significant)
b] in love (caring for another person)
c] and in courage during difficult times.

This class we uses tarot spread to guide us or the least to give us some tips about our leaming to life. Through tarot readings, we can dig deeper into our subconscious and investigate what give us meaning in this lifetime.

What is Money meant to me?

Katherine requested the participants to answer the following question:

If someone gave you a million dollars right now, what you would do with it?

Using a Yes/No spread to confirm what you written is genuine.

Tarot Reading Definition

Major Arcana Yes
Minor Arcana No

Even Numbers Yes
Odd Numbers No

Court Cards

King No
Queen Yes
Knight No
Page Yes

What you have written is truly what you you want to do on earth. Your purpose of living. How far are you off tracked?

Who do you feel you are ? What is the meaning in your life?

Till the next class,

Passionately Sharing,

Katherine Goh

May 1st 2014 Connective Session: Looking For Space Within

Looking for space in our life, fills up the space in our life. It exhausts us and makes us feel more and more frantic, and takes us further from help. Let the spaciousness of life find us. It is always here, which is precisely where we are.  

~~~From The Shimmering World by Steven Harrison

These words give me pause for reflection each time I read them. They are an inspiring guide to living life. When we are confused or feel lost, then sit down and relax. Find your Middle Ground. Knowing that help is here in the space we are already in…..

Today session, we are working on a mental exercise – Looking For Space Within

This mental exercise is to helps train the mind to become aware of the space we are already in rather than the object that fill it or making us look outside of us.

When you look in any direction, try to make yourself aware of the spaces between the objects, rather than the objects themselves, as though what you were seeing was a picture on paper and you were able to use scissors to cut out the objects themselves, leaving only spaces between them. This exercise can expand the perceptions and help you to escape from preoccupations with the material world.

As you slowly open your eyes, imagine the sunrise coming out of your eyes and shining light on to a new day.

See all of you in our next session. 

With Love & Light,

Katherine Goh

April 18 2014 Connective Session: Values

Our Connective Question: Write down ten people you admire and why you admire them, the qualities that give them value in your eyes. Try to recognize that quality in yourself

Last connective session, we invest our time to connect with what are the qualities we admire. Do we have the qualities? Many of the qualities we admire are literally free. Some of the common ones by the group are …

  • Wisdom
  • Functionality
  • Strategic
  • Smartness
  • Creativity
  • Frankness
  • Decisiveness
  • Loving-Kindness
  • Strong connectivity with others…

I am fascinated by values. Values we all hold dear to us. Make a list of the twenty things you value most in life. How many of these are free? Did your list include yourself? 

I see that most people forgot to value themselves. If you do not value yourself, then how do you even value other things? Think !

If we were to prioritize our top three values what would yours be? Do you hold these values but not live them? Try to sit down with pen and paper. Write down your top three values in your life. Do your values show up in your real life? 

How long will it take you? For some of us, we can jot it down quickly, but some of us are very frustrated by this exercise. Ask yourself why it was easy or hard. That is where I want your heart right now.

Why is it important to look at our values?

Let me give an example here of values and what we think of others or how we judge.

Lets say you are in line at a up-end supermarket. You see in front of you a woman with a child, a young child. This woman is dressed in very fine clothes. The child is dressed very nice. The woman puts her food down on the grocery counter. You notice she has nice steaks, lobster, fruits, vegetables, and candy and donuts. She looks up at the cashier and pays him with aided support vouchers.

How do we judge or put value judgements on this woman at the grocery counter? Maybe you thought it was good that she had some quality food such as steak and lobster, or you felt pangs of envy that she could afford them, or you judged her for buying such food.

What did you think or value on the she and the child wore as you noticed they were on welfare? This is where I want your mind to go. What do you really think of this scenario.

I hope this post can help you look at yourself and the people who you deal with in your life and ask yourself if you are judging a book by its cover. “To err is human” But to look within is Wise”

See all of you in our next session. 

With Love & Light,

Katherine Goh

April 12 2014 Connective Session: Gratitude

Gratitude means thankfulness, counting your blessings, noticing simple pleasures, and acknowledging everything that you receive. It means learning to live your life as if everything were a miracle, and being aware on a continuous basis of how much you’ve been given and not take life for granted.

Gratitude shifts your focus from what your life lacks to the abundance that is already present. In addition, behavioral and psychological research has shown the surprising life improvements that can stem from the practice of gratitude. Giving thanks makes people happier and more resilient, it strengthens relationships, it improves health, and it reduces stress.

In our last connective session, we invest some time with ourselves to write our gratitude list. Some people are grateful for “bigger” things in life such as  freedom and time they have while some of us focus on the “smaller” things in life such as getting a good-paying job or travelling to another country. Whether its the “bigger” or “smaller” things in life, we practice gratitude in every breath we take.

It’s easy to feel gratitude on those good days. We are grateful because good things are happening, and we like that! If we are to be serious about our gratitude practice, however, we must also learn to be genuinely grateful on those not-so-great days. For example, the pain i am receiving that turns me to a tougher person. My husband always remind me, “What’s don’t break me makes me stronger”. 

We can start by being grateful EVEN THOUGH all that “bad” stuff is happening; we can find other, better, things to focus on and be grateful for. Eventually, though, we can learn to be grateful BECAUSE those things are happening. We can, if we so choose, learn to find the blessing in any situation. The secret is to learn to stand our ground without resisting what is.

How to Start a Gratitude Practice to Change Your Life?

  1.  Write 1 gratitude letter to a person and post it to him/her. (That’s what we did in our last session. Those people we sent our gratitude letter should have received them by now.)
  2. Practice present-moment gratitude. As you move through your day, pause now and then when you remember, and think as you do something “I am grateful.”
  3. Share the gratitude. Partner with someone like what we did last session. You will keep each other going and that sense of obligation to that person will give you the push you need to write your list on those days when it just seems too hard.
  4. Lastly, Commit.This is a spiritual practice that gains momentum over time and with practice. Gratitude doesn’t seem to come as easily as grumbling does, and you will likely resist this exercise until the cows come home, as they say in New Zealand. Waiting for the resistance to pass is futile. Just do it.

There will be times in life when everything you have seems to be swept out to the sea. When that happens, stand your ground and just let it go. Like the tide, life has it’s own rhythm of ebb and flow. Things and people come into our lives, and things and people leave our lives, often before we are ready. Be grateful for the having of them, and also for the letting go, for it is all part of this delicious cycle we call Life.

See all of you in our next session. 

With Love & Light,

Katherine Goh

March 29th 2014 Connective Session: Tarot Healing

If you ask someone who has never before worked with tarot about the purpose of tarot, they will most likely say something about fortune telling. It is true that tarot has an uncanny knack for predicting future events. As a tool of divination it is accurate, compelling and insightful. But if you ask a tarotist about the purpose of tarot, many will answer this way. Tarot is a tool for healing.

The ways in which tarot heals may be limitless. Over time, tarotists will develop and discover new ways to use these sacred images to bring healing. Each tarotist has unique practices, so no list of tarot’s usefulness could ever be comprehensive. The process of divination itself can be very healing. Whether we are reading for ourselves or others, a good tarot reading can bring us to a place of emotional balance and well-being. It can give new perspective, and reframe painful issues to create healthier and more productive thinking. A tarot reading can pinpoint problems and offer solutions.

Beyond the process of reading the cards, tarot can offer healing in a number of ways. We can use tarot images in meditation, visualization, goal setting, magick and manifestation.

Last connective session, we had our chakras healing through tarot. Below is a simple 7-cards chakra healing spread we used. Each card representing our different major seven chakras. 

Chakra Healing Spread:
7
6
5
4
3
2

We also did Soul Healing with our tarot. We’re not born with a Map of Life but our Soul healing Tarot spread gets pretty close. We’re here to embody our soul as fully as possible and the four cards spread we used can help us with the how.

Soul Healing Spread

1 …..2…..3…..4

1. Vocation – This card gives you a clue about your life purpose in terms of your career or vocation and shows you how to maximise on the gifts of the Spirit bestowed upon you before you were even conceived.

2. Life lesson – This card shows you the main theme you need to explore and study in this lifetime in order to fully embody your soul.

3. Tweak tool – This card shows you where you often stumble and need to pause for breath/prayer in order to realign.

4. Doing right – This aspect of your soul’s embodiment is already working for you. Drawing on this strength can only help!

Begin Your Healing Journey Today

Even as we study the tarot cards, we can use the cards to heal. Each card bears a spiritual lesson as well as an interpretive value. When we embrace the spiritual message of each card, we have the opportunity to use that message to grow and heal. Tarot inspires our creativity, increases our intuition, and offers us opportunities for communication on the deepest levels. In all these ways and more, tarot is a profound tool for healing. How have you used the Tarot for healing? And what have been the results? Share your comments below.

See you all in our next session again. 

With Love & Light,

March 15th 2014 Connective Session: The Full Moon

Hello, 

We meet again. Its fast isn’t it?

Our last session was a full moon day. What’s so unique about the full Moon time?

Many people feel the energetic buzz of the Full Moon. What’s cool to note, is that it always means the Sun and Moon are in opposite Zodiac signs. It’s a super charged time, but also one of balance. The solar yang and the lunar yin are in harmony.

Below are five tips from “Feng Shui Your Life” for using the energy of the full moon (two days before and two days after) in the most fortuitous way:

1. Refrain from arguing and getting angry.

The full moon is the time to stay calm, let things go, breathe deeply through difficult moments and forgive others for their mistakes. Seriously, if you can’t let something go and need to communicate it (which I recommend), try to postpone sharing your upset until at least two days after the full moon. Whatever happens at this time is multiplied. It’s like having emotional fertilizer. Keep the energy moving in a happy, uplifting direction at home, work, in the car and in your every day interactions.

2. Think positive thoughts.

We all know we should think positively as much as possible but during the full moon, you’ll have a wind at your back. Your positive thoughts will be energized and multiplied. Even if you spend five minutes when you wake up and go to sleep thinking about the positive things in your life, you’ll be doing yourself a big favor.

For example, you could write a gratitude list or a thank you note to the Universe for all you have. You could look in the mirror and say nice things to yourself. You could take a walk and notice all the beauty around you. Imagine that your positive thoughts are sprinkled with full moon glitter that makes them grow exponentially.

3. Envision your dreams manifesting.

The full moon is a perfect time to do your manifestation techniques. Spend time imagining your goals and writing them down on paper. It’s also a great time to make a vision or “manifestation board.” To do this, place pictures and words of your goals on a cork or poster board and place it where you can see it every day. Spending time focusing on your dreams during the full moon gives it extra juice!

4. Meditate by yourself or in a group.

Since the full moon pours down so much energy, meditating during this time creates calm, mindfulness and stillness. You can do it by yourself in a sacred space in your home.

You can also connect with other like-minded friends to meditate in a group. There are many spiritual centers, yoga studios and online groups that come together for a full moon meditation. It’s very powerful to meditate in a group.

5. Send blessings to people in need.

Since you have the full moon power behind you, send healing energy, forgiveness, pink light and loving-kindness to friends, family, colleagues, and strangers. In addition, send peaceful energy to the places in the world experiencing strife, hardship, poverty and war. It has huge benefits for them and as a bonus, you create loads of good karma.

The full moon is a great time to be of service and do acts of kindness. 

See you all in our next session again. 

With Love & Light,

Katherine Goh

March 2nd 2014 Connective Session: Each to its own needs

We splitted this session as participants have two different connective needs . One participant was concerned about his decision on moving new house and others will be working on Self- Exploration.

Many of us go through life skimming the surface of our identities. That is, we don’t truly dig deeply into our thoughts, feelings, desires and dreams. Part of the problem is that we’re always on the go. When to-do lists keep swelling, self-exploration takes a backseat. How can it not, when we barely find time for self-care? Specifically, self-exploration involves “taking a look at your own thoughts, feelings, behaviors and motivations and asking why. It’s looking for the roots of who we are.

The distance between your inner reality and yourself is only YOU. So this session aligned with the new moon energy, we uses crescent spread to explore our own thoughts and motivations. We are taking a look/ take stocks of our life on these few major theme.

1) Manifestation
2) Expectation
3) Faith
4) Practice

After which we explored on our spiritual life lessons using the Lotus Spread. Some of the questions we explored are

1. Who am I?

2. What is my lesson right now?

3. How can I grow spiritually at this time?

4. How else can I grow spiritually at this time?

5. Who am I becoming?

6. What’s my biggest challenge at this time?

7. Where am I headed?

Note that , Transformation is the power of Love in action. What’s your transformation for the last year?

On the other side of the room,  we have a participant who is concerned with the idea of moving house, we have decided to engage 2 spreads to explore further insights relating to this event. We embarked on two spreads, namely “House Location Spread” and “Moving Spread” specially customised for the participant.

Some of the questions we were guided by the readings are:

  • Something you need to know about this spot.
  • What needs to happen before you can move.
  •  doubts & wishes before the move
  • hopes & fears after the move
  • lessons being learned
  • what you will receive from this new home

We all have different concerns and needs. This session is to address each own needs and grow and learn together spiritually in our own life theme. Connective session should not be fixed like learning from books or going for lectures. They should be connective and value-adding to each own life. What do you need to learn today for a better you?

“Knowing yourself is the beginning of all wisdom.” ― Aristotle

July 2013 Connective Goal Setting Session – Will I find True Love?

tRUE lOVE

Dear Connectors,

Many people ask ”how do I find love”? There are many affectionate, kind and wonderful people who are single – and wish they weren’t. So why can’t you find them? Why haven’t you been able to find the love you’ve always wanted? You can. You can escape the loneliness, the hurt, the pain – you can find love. You just need a little more information.

The first secret is to understand what true love actually is! It’s not quite the love you tend to see around you, in most books, on television and at the movies. Rather it’s the highest form of love, where you’re so connected with someone that loving is easy, serene, caring – true. Some people call it finding your soul mate and to even deeper connection – Twin Flame.

In our last sharing, we went in deeper, connecting with oneself. We uses the Seven Card Tarot spread to help us connects to our inner voice. Some of the questions addressed as follows:

1. Will I ever find true love?
2. Will the attraction be instant or a slow-burning realization?
3. What will this person be like physically?
4. What will this person be like emotionally?
5. Are there issues I needs to deal with that are delaying a meeting/relationship with this person?
6. Are there issues this person needs to deal with that are preventing a meeting/relationship?
7. When/where/how will I meet this person?

Up until recently most people, including scientists, believed love was about chemistry and the interaction of molecules and hormones within you. Chemicals forced you to act in certain ways and create what you perceived as love. But we all know that when you text or speak to your lover on the phone those molecules don’t cross space and trigger a chemical reaction. We now know there’s something more powerful involved.

Science now shows that those chemicals are set in motion by electromagnetic signaling, or what you might simply think of energy.

This echoes how we each know that we should look beyond the physical to find true love.

When you’re ‘in love’ your energies – such as those measured by your brain and heart waves – as well as those chemicals, emotions, thoughts and actions are focused and flowing together in one direction.

This is a little like a laser, which brings together and amplifies waves of light energy to make a powerful and illuminating beam that’s stronger than the individual light waves on their own.

So now you know that love is, ultimately, energy!

You are no longer at the mercy of those chemicals and don’t have to wait until you bump into someone else whose chemicals interact well with yours to experience love. You have more control than you realize over love! Once you understand the power of love you can then do something about it. 

We will continue our next class with more learning. 

Till our next sharing session.  Namaste Om.

July 2013 Connective Goal Setting Session – Wish For a Partner

Dear Connectors,

Once upon a time, little girls were told fairy tales about handsome princes with magical kisses who would ride up on a white stallion and whisk them away to the land called Happily Ever After. Then reality struck. The white stallion was a beat-up old car and the prince turned out to be a jerk. Happily Ever After seemed to be a never, Neverland.

Does it sounds familiar? 

We all wishes for our Twin Flame or Soul Mate but sometimes may not be a smooth journey. 

Then one smart princess decided to do some research. She discovered prayers, meditations, intentions and rituals Potent enough to manifest anything and everything her heart desired.
First she used it to get a parking space. Next she started a business and built a big, fun career.  Finally she used all her manifestation tools to land a soul mate. Not just any soul mate; the best soul mate ever! And in the process she discovered that happily ever after is really possible after all. Its all about the 3As: Attitude, Awareness and Actions. 

She is happily married with her high school classmate, both of them working toward growing old together lovingly and peacefully. 

Aaron Oracle

In our 12th July class, we have engaged  “Wish For a Partner” Spread for guidance – Will my desire for a partnership have a chance in the next six months? We integrated Tarot readings with Numerology and  Colour cards to our readings. The objective is to have awareness on this aspect of our life, working towards what we need to, paying attention to our Attitude towards how we deal with situations, events or people.

We will continue our next class with more learning. 

Till our next sharing session. 

Namaste Om,

June 2013 Connective Goal Setting Session – Family Relationships Blocks and Past Life Events

Dear Connectors,

Family Relationship Blocks 

June session we were privilege to find out what to look for during our family outings. In healthy family relationships, people are able to trust and rely on each other for support, love, affection and warmth. Families often share common goals and try to work together to reach those goals. However, sometimes these may not come easy. No matter how close family members are, there bound to have conflicts.

Conflict is a normal and healthy part of family life. For example, families often disagree over things like house rules, which holiday destinations, what food to have for dinner which TV shows to watch. Families are made up of individuals who will sometimes have different ideas, wants or needs. Conflict can occur at any time so it is important for families to have effective ways of managing it. Conflict itself is not a problem–but the way it is handled might be. When conflict is managed in positive ways, family relationships are strengthened. For example, agreeing that everyone gets to choose their favourite TV show that week and to take turns watching something they enjoy. When not dealt with effectively, conflict can be stressful and damaging to relationships.

In our June session, Katherine has provided some suggestions about how to strengthen family relationships so positive experiences outweigh difficult ones. When relationships are strong and healthy, they are better able to withstand the stress of challenging times and celebrate the positive experiences.

Building positive family relationships is about dealing with conflicts as well as making time to relax and do fun things together.

Past Life Events

In the second part of the session, Katherine went on to work on past life events for a participant- Mr A. (Name is masked for privacy of the client).

One method of recall of a past life is meditation. Our mind can be put into a meditative state, similar to hypnosis, where past life recall can occur. This meditative state is similar to yoga, where the distractions of the world are filtered out and one becomes more in tune with the inner self. You must totally relax, and clear the mind of any thought. It is when your mind is completely clear of all the clutter and distractions of the world that you will often be able to see clearly into your past life. This may come as a vision, a clear image. It may be a brief image, and you have no control over what you see. With this method you will probably only see a little at a time, a gradual disclosure. 

Till our next sharing session in July. 

Namaste Om,

With Love & Light,

Katherine Goh

P/S: Our next session is schedule on the 12th July at 4.30pm. See you all again.

May 2013 Connective Goal Setting Session – Twin Flame & Soul Mate

Dear Connectors,

In our last session, besides spending time to look and feel deeper on our monthly goals so that we can take Actions on our goals, we also entered into a Twin Flame and Soul Mate discussion.

twin_flame500x300

There are things that our soul remembers when we incarnate, and the more we move along our path, we are given glimpses of memory through signs from the universe, through soul mate relationships and our internal guidance. You are reading this right now for a reason and it is up to you to decide why it is, what message you will take from this, as well as how you will incorporate it into your life. You could also decide to just take it in and release it…you are given free will and therefore never forced to do anything. You are the creator of your life masterpiece and it is all beautiful. 

I remembered watching a movie: Made In Heaven Movie – A Story of Twin Flame Reunion.


What Is A Twin Flame?

Twin Flame

Twin flames, also called twin souls, are literally the other half of our soul. We each have only one twin, and generally after being split the two went their separate ways, incarnating over and over to gather human experience before coming back together. Ideally, this happens in both of their last lifetimes on the planet so they can ascend together. So you probably haven’t had many lifetimes with your twin and it’s certainly useful to be aware of the twin flame signs.

Each twin is a complete soul, not half a soul. It is their task to become more whole, balancing their female and male sides, and ideally become enlightened, before reuniting with their twin. This reunion is of two complete and whole beings. All other relationships through all our lives could be said to be “practice” for the twin, the ultimate relationship.

What Is A Soulmate?

Soulmates are our soul family, the ones we do have many lifetimes and experiences with, who help us grow and evolve, create and dissipate karma. According to ancient wisdom, when the soul is “born” or descended from Source, it is created in a group. The souls in this group are our soulmates, ones who are very like us in frequency makeup. Then each of these souls is split into two, creating the twins.

A soulmate is someone you are close to at a soul level, and with whom you have had many shared experiences in different lifetimes, in various kinds of relationships — siblings, parent-child, best friend, as well as romantic relationships. There is a deep love for each other, and a spiritual bond that sets them apart from the superficiality of most other people in your life. Conversations are generally deep, about personal growth and service to make the world a better place. We can have many soulmates in our lives, and they come to us to help us grow spiritually.

Have I Meet My Twin?

Your chance of meeting and staying with your twin depends on how evolved your soul is, and how much of your baggage from this and past lives you have cleared. The biggest reason twins have to separate after coming together is their individual emotional baggage. Because in the presence of your twin, there can be nothing between you, nothing blocking your closeness. This means that everything comes up for healing that you haven’t previously healed. Everything!

When twins reunite, both of them experience an acceleration of their spiritual growth and awakening. They get on the fast track of learning about esoteric wisdom and experiencing other states of consciousness. They usually haven’t been together all that often during their series of lives on the planet, and so their backgrounds may be different. Yet, there is a closeness and similarities of spirit that are almost uncanny, noticed in many ways, such as looking back at yourself when you look at your mate, and a remembering of the distant past when you first split up. Guidance is strong with these relationships, and usually one or both have a good channel for communication with Spirit. Their connection is telepathic, and hugging each other is like coming home for nourishment.

Namaste Om,

With Love & Light,

Katherine Goh

April 2013 Connective Goal Setting Session – My Inner Goals

Are you continually setting goals for yourself, and working diligently to achieve them, only to be disappointed by the results? Or do you have trouble staying committed to your goals once you’ve set them, eventually abandoning them and becoming disillusioned by the whole process?

It’s very possible that you are focusing your awareness and your efforts on the wrong goals. What may seem to be your goals could likely be only crude and inexact materialistic representations of them. The fact is that every outside goal you have corresponds directly and inextricably to an inner goal. That inner goal is actually where the real substance of the goal resides. Yet when you focus solely on the outer goal, on the mere worldly representation of the goal, you can make it nearly impossible to achieve.

A key concept to realize is this. Your outer goal is not really what matters most to you, as wonderful as it may appear. What matters most is that inner goal. When that is achieved, you are already where you want to be. Most people assume that they must first achieve the outer goal in order to have the inner goal. Very rarely it happens that way, but, by many orders of magnitude, that approach is the most difficult, challenging, burdensome way to do it. There is a much easier, more joyful, more fulfilling, more life-affirming and natural way to do things.

In our April session, we once again work on our inner goals. There are two most effective tools Katherine uses to find out what your inner goals are. 

  1. Oracle Interpretation
  2. Meditation

Oracle Interpretation

Some people find such method superstitious or impractical. But in Katherine’s opinion, she finds that using oracle readings, do helped to guide us to our inner feelings. 

One of the previous post : Tarot Spread by Katherine Goh – Goal Spread share a tarot spread on finding your inner goals.

Question when using the deck: What’s my Inner Goals for April to May 2013? – How can i accomplish my inner goals?

Basic Goals Spread: This is a simple goal spread for more insights to the goals.

Daily Goal Spread

Meditation

 I’ve found something that works for me.  It’s a variation of meditation. A visualization that focuses on ideal outcomes for goals I’ve set and am working toward achieving, challenges I’m facing, or on people I care about. Here’s how simple it can be: you at work in the middle of the day, sitting in your office chair, in your suit. Closing your eyes, or keeping them slightly open.  You can choose to follow your breath, counting each full inhalation and exhalation, until you reach ten breaths, and then allow your focus to shift to the first situation that needs attention. Any time you catch your mind wandering away, the clock ticking on the wall, the ringing phone, the traffic outside, your stomach growling, your foot itching, gently bring it back and focus on seeing a beautiful outcome for the situation you are choosing.

Archangel Michael Meditation

Just a quick exercise to ask Archangel Michael and God to help dissolve the energetic cords attached to a person, place or thing that no longer serve us. It will help you release fear, anger, resentment or anxiety and move on life with a positive heart. It will also helps you to dissolve blockages to attaining our inner goals.

Hope above information useful.

Namaste Om,

With Love & Light,

Katherine Goh

September 2012 Connective Goal Setting Session – Release The Past

Hello Goal-Setters,

Last lesson, we attempted to review and release our past lives, paying special attention to the matters of heart. I am sure you feel that reviewing and releasing past lives was a very positive and uplifting experience!

Whether you are conscious of it or not, you have all lived many lives. Sometimes patterns from your past lives carry over to your current lives, as the memories, experiences, and traumas remain lodged in your aura. Past lives are important to revisit and release as they can help you get a better understanding of yourself and the reasons for recurring patterns of behaviour, illnesses, and experiences.

You came here in a fresh new body with the hope and intention of joy, freedom, growth and love. I wish you all the best in finding and reclaiming your true Self.

With Love & Light

Oracle Guidance for August 2012

This reading was done by using The Four Elements Spread. The Elements are Fire,Water,Air and Earth. 

Energy on Spread – The High Priestess

Whether you realize it or not, your whole life showcases who you are. Are you ready to make your presentation this month? All you need to do is keep your energy calm and in balance so your true essence can shine through. Is this easier said than done for you? Let’s see what can help you feel the most confident in your own skin.

Since you are energy, all you may ever need translates into more energy. For example, if you are tired – you need more rest energy. If you are hungry – you need more food energy. If you are short of financial means to get by – you need more resources energy. If you are depressed – you need more calm energy, etc. As long as you can wrap your head around how you can actually supply this energy to yourself – you will have it made. The secret is – guess what? You already have it coming to you from the universe. Energy flows into your physical body through (1) the pineal gland (back of the head) and flows through the rest of your energy centers (chakras) in a natural order: (2) coccyx (lower back), (3) reproductive organs, (4) solar plexus (stomach) (5) heart area and (6) thyroid (throat) and then flows out of (7) the pituitary gland (middle of the forehead or third eye). The key is to having each of these energy centers open 100% to allow for an uninterrupted flow. In reality, there are spiritual concepts pertaining to each of these areas and if you are unclear in any of them, this can cause a blockage. This slows down the flow through the affected centers and can result in a physical discomfort or dis-ease in these corresponding parts of your body. Once you realize what is happening to you, keeping clear and staying open can be easy and your self-presentation will show you are in full charge of your natural energy!

Advise: Wheel of Fortune

To keep your personal life together by giving it your best presentation, it is very important to allow for the flow in and out. This has to do with your self-acceptance (inflow) and your personal outflow. Being open to receive relies on accepting yourself for who you are as a soul. You need to love and appreciate yourself. You have lived lifetime after lifetime mastering your unique innate philosophy through countless experiences. Therefore, no one else has your answers but you. Any time you think you are not good enough or do not deserve something will create tension and shrink the energy flow into you. This cuts down your energy supply. This is one of the main reasons many older people scrunch and bend down. They have denied themselves throughout their life and the energy flow is so low, they press themselves down until they are visibly bent. If you try to explain to them how to free themselves and start feeling adequate, this could be a challenge and requires patience since it has been so ingrained and passed on from generation to generation. How easy it is to break this chain if you open your own eyes and change it within yourself so you can be an example for others. The outflow denotes giving freely and being totally involved in life. Unfortunately, for many people it turns instead into holding onto things and cutting off endless opportunities by just being closed. No wonder they end up with migraine headaches. The simple answer is not to be uptight, but learn to release. After you have worked out your inflow and outflow, the solar plexus deserves serious attention. This is where discernment and detachment come into play. Otherwise, you can end up worrying yourself sick. Just realize the problems others are having are not yours. So quit suffering with them. Creating a natural boundary around you protects your energy from getting mixed up with negativity from your immediate environment.

Overall Situation: Travel, solve problems through the feminine way. Be Gentle with yourself and others. Be harmony with Universe and feel the Wholeness within you.

Work August will be a busy Month. May have conflicts in the workplace. Remember to observe first before action. Trickery at workplace may be possible.

The presentation you do in your business begins with how you have chosen to be of service to others and starts with your wants and goals. If you are unclear what you want for yourself, there is very little you can offer anyone else. You have come here to live a vibrant life – full, exciting and fun and have so much to offer. No one else has gone through the exact same experiences. Only you have seen things from your individual point-of-view. If you share what you have learned, your incredible wisdom will be invaluable to others. Once you feel a natural desire for something big or extraordinary – it is yours for the taking. In addition to recognizing what you can do, you also need to organize yourself to do it. Pin down your facts in a businesslike manner. After this is crystal clear, next comes your incentive. Do you have a strong drive to pursue your goals? How much do you really want to see them happen? So many people have incredible ideas, but bury them alive with their ‘but’s. They all say – I wish this or that, BUT I am: not lucky enough, too short, too young, too poor, too inexperienced…or whatever else they use as a petty excuse. As long as your heart pumps blood, you have it in you to go full steam ahead with what drives you. Pursue your utmost desires and make these dreams come true. Do not turn your back on your own self. Be unstoppable – no one else can do this for you!

LovePause and think: To have an impeccable social life, you need to start with taking care of your own needs first. Taking care of others all of the time does not work. Attending to someone else before doing it for yourself first puts you at a great disadvantage as you will not be in shape to help yourself let alone do this for anybody else. What good are you if you do not provide for yourself with enough food, love, health, shelter and sex? The latter represents communication – opening yourself to someone else who is opening themselves back to you and could be either physical or spiritual. This is your ultimate self-expression and creativity which leads to pro-creation – creating someone just like yourself! Do not be shy spiritually. Bring out your creative juices and give them the expression they deserve by sharing what you have with others. Lastly, is your relating gland or thyroid. Do you ever compare yourself and feel greater or lesser than others? Remember, you are not them and they are not you. We are just different. So who is better?  We all have our own way to be. There is no point in judging or holding grudges because everyone is just doing the best they know how. Relax – this is the only way to have a true soul-to-soul communication with everyone.

Health – Headache, Fever and challenges on head is possible. Take great care and sleep early.

Financial – Stagnant. Perhaps its time to create another external source of income? What do you love to do ?

With Love & Light,

Katherine Goh

Tarot Reading Using The Four Elements

This reading was done by using The Four Elements Spread for one of my client. The Elements are Fire,Water,Air and Earth. I have experimented and found out that if the inquirer is on the site of reading, of course his/her energies will be stronger than if the inquirer is not around (as in distance reading), then the 1st card will present associating Horoscope or planet card relating to the inquirer.

In this reading, i am doing distance reading.

Focus on all major Arcana. If any of the major Arcana is associating with the inquirer’s horoscope,pay special attention. In this case, Temperance card which is the inquirer’s horoscope. In this segment, is the guidance on his Work.

Summary of this reading:

Work Don’t be extreme. Choose the middle path. Cool off. Observe and let your intuition work. Moving onwards present new opportunities. Go with the flow at work may be the best option out.

Key Words: Observe/Balance/Go with the Flow/Patience

Love – Joyful relationship and yearning to go home after work and able to see his partner. Partnership will present luck. The couple is homely and enjoys each other’s companionship.

If only you can be crystal CLEAR of what you want in life, things you need will be given to you by higher powers. Enjoy the miracles and HAVE FAITH.

Oracle Guidance for 28th-5th March 2012

I am travelling to Bali, Indonesia later at 7am Singapore Time and back on 5th March 2012. Its interesting because when i am back its time for our next oracle guidance. Everything happens just as IT IS. I am excited for this holiday with my husband, a time for us to relax and rejuvenate; connecting back to ourselves and universe. Its a time to review and take stock of our life goals.

I have picked up 2 cards to guide us through the week from two different decks ( Rider Waite Tarot Deck and Astrology Oracle Cards by Maya White). Let ‘s have a closer look:

Cards Picked: The Sun and Mercury Retrograde

Guidance: Time to make decision, Positiveness and Motivation, Be Playful and Vibrant, Be Spontaneous

Get your activities finalized by Tuesday the 28th (today), before the void of course Moon which begins at 3am Singapore time on 29th March. Wednesday afternoon is best left to routine activities because not much happens when the moon is void of course. Think of it as a mini Mercury retrograde which is the card that showed up in this reading.

Do look at projects/tasks that happened three weeks ago, its time to review them to avoid any delays and miscommunications. 

Whenever I see the Sun tarot card appear in a tarot spread I know I am dealing with important issues of personal development and growth. The Sun represents wholeness on both an internal and external level. From a psychological perspective, this refers to coming to terms with unconscious feelings and motivations. There is a certain level of self-awareness and inner peace.

Achievement and success often come from one’s ability to reconcile their negative thinking on an unconscious level. Simply stated, positive thoughts can create positive circumstances. The achievement of one’s goals often comes with the belief in one’s self, faith and diligence. The Sun is all about affirmative actions, ideas and thoughts! It serves as a reminder that we certainly can create abundance if we develop enough self-confidence to believe in ourselves.

Another important element to the Sun card is the concept of spontaneity. Sometimes in tarot readings the Sun can indicate the need to get more spontaneous and playful in your life. In this regard, the Sun card reminds you to get inspired, do the unexpected and listen to your creative side. If you have a new idea, thought or impression why not take a moment to see where it might lead you? Spontaneity is a force all unto its own. When we listen to it, we can find ourselves on new paths or personal journeys.

Elements: Fire

Astrology: Sun

Planet: Mercury

Spiritual Number: 1

Connecting Chakra: Root

I will return with an update for next week; in the meantime – fly safe and swim deep; astrology and our oracle cards will always tell you exactly What’s Going On.

Namste Om.

With Love and Light,

Katherine Goh
