Spiritual lifestyle advice and guidance for modern women from bestselling author Alice Grist.
I've come to realise something about myself. I decide to do something. And I do it. I don't necessarily do it well, or forever. But when my heart gets set on a goal, it gets done. I want to share this with you, because I know you have things you want and need to do too...
When I decided I was going to be a model. Despite having a friend round on me with the news that me I was too ugly, an agency saying I was too fat (a whole two pounds) and the crappy culture of modelling generally finding me too small. I did it anyway. I got that modelling bug out of my system.
When I decided I need to act, that I missed acting and drama from school. I did it. Even in spite of my lack of experience I walked into my first (and last) audition knowing I was going to get the role. And I damn well got it, at an established city amateur theatre. I got it, I did it, I rocked that box.
The first job I got, the one that that I stayed in nearly forever, that called to me from the page. I made my mind up and I decided it was mine. And guess what. I got it. Totally assured by the interviewer winking at me as I left the uber professional building. I made my mind up and I did it.
When I wanted to return to my childhood love of writing I did it. Four books later and many internationally published articles, I am still doing it.
When I tired of writing for a minute and needed to swerve to art, despite not having had an art lesson since school. I did it. And I created my Cosmic Mother Cards that are currently on preorder and selling like hot cakes around the freaking globe!
When I decided I wanted to make a business of all of what I love doing. I felt absolutely terrified, because this was no longer playing. But guess what, I'm doing it. I'm making money and I'm helping people, and above all of that, I feel happy in what I am doing. Finally I landed happy splat on my right page!
Just by doing what I needed to do. I followed my heart to this moment...
Now what makes me do these things? I'm not sure. I wasn't particularly raised to be a girl who just does things. My mum always cautioned me to go to school, get a good safe job that would cover my costs and give me holiday pay. In spite of these warnings, which I admit, still tickle at my thoughts with that bit of fear, I do what I want to do.
I figure that life is kind of unreal. We all buy into the structures of it, the rules, the organisation. And we get scared, because all of those things tell us we must be a certain way, and anything else is scary and insecure. But life, my darlings, is the biggest insecurity. You could lose it tomorrow, today even. So why, oh why, would we put our hearts off? Why would we not do what we feel inspired to do at any given moment? And for no reason other than because it calls to us, and we need to and it feels good.
Fear is not your reality. Your reality is the desires within you. If you don't credit them, you waste your reality, you waste your chance, you disrespect this amazing opportunity. You end up with shitty regrets.
None of the rules matter if you don't break them. None of your actions have meaning unless they accord, in some way with your heart. You don't need to even be good at the things you want to do. You should just do them anyway. Because one after another they will lead you to what you will be good at! Trust me, I took a long and wobbly path through women's studies at uni, to glamour modelling, to Am Dram, to music writing for the local cool mag, right round the corner to spiritual words and art and actions.
It's a funny path. I give you that. But until you step on it, how would you know!
So it is September and there is some cold in the air. And I am feeling ready for my next thing! How can I help you find yours... My books, tarot cards, tarot coaching and readings are all designed to get you moving to the beat of your heart. check them out below...
The Cosmic Mother Tarot Deck
£35.00 - £48.00
A beautiful fun deck of Tarot Cards inspired by the feminine divine, designed and painted by myself spiritual author and artist Alice Grist. I am so excited to birth these cards into the world.
These cards are painted by me using watercolour and acrylic paints. I had much helps and inspiration form my then 4 year old daughter, Ivy Belle, who designed the beautiful back cover, and a couple of the cards too!
These cards were produced in the aftermath of having written my popular book, Dirty and Divine. I was all worded out, four books later and ready for a change... I felt pulled to colour and paint and drawing. The cards started as a bit of fun. Something that my daughter and I could focus on together. In the beginning I had no intention of publishing them... But then they started to take shape, and they brought a lot to my life. So I decided to get them designed up and printed out professionally, so that they may find another life with you! I cant wait to share them with you!
Cosmic Mother cards are designed to connect you to the innocence, fun and folly of the inner child. They make tarot simple, and accessible. I recommend them to everyone who wants to explore tarot from within their own world, using their life as expert and experience.
