Spiritual lifestyle advice and guidance for modern women from bestselling author Alice Grist.
Is there a point in your life, a sticking point, a place you pivot back to time and time again? Perhaps it is a career goal you just can't reach, or a love fantasy, that lays beyond your stretch?
We all have blocks. They hold us back in numerous ways, be that financially, romantically, health wise or in our experiences. Blocks are built on fears ingrained into us, as kids, as young adults, and, by a culture that wants to keep us small. We all have them. Yet, we do not need to let them rule. Seriously.
I was told I couldn't write a book. I told myself I would do it when I was older and more experienced. I wrote my first aged 28 and have done four since then. With a gust of crazy self belief and a wave of passion following. I did it. I smashed my blocks.
Blocks are made for smashing.
Yet I still have stumbling patterns. One that I always come back to.
Let me tell you a secret. I'm ready to get so far past my blocks that they are obscured by a thick, fiery dust. I am ready to move, the heck, along.
It's been ten years since I wrote my first book, and despite the successes my books have brought me. I am still, more or less, in the same place as when I started. I still work a day job (that I hoped to leave ten years ago). I still pull back from book and tarot success any time things get a bit to hot or busy. I fly blindly back into the 'security' of something that is outside of my comfort, because that is what I was told, all my life, was safer.
But life isn't meant to be safe. Being safe, is a shortcut for becoming stale, for getting staid, for not living to the full.
Yet, I, like you, stumble, and put up blocks.
I realised this the other day with startling clarity. My insurance for my tarot coaching work was up for renewal. And I did the same thing I have done for the past three years. I ignored it. And then, when the date was passed, I took my services offline. I totally, and utterly self sabotaged. Because my work has been getting busier, more successful... And whilst I love, love, love it. I succumb to that fear, over and over again. The fear that says it' couldn't possibly be as safe or as stable as employed work. And I have kids and a mortgage and blah, blah, blah.
But then I started reading 'Money, A Love Story' by Kate Northrup. And she has opened my eyes to my value. To the value I get from writing books and doing tarot coaching and that others receive from these as a result. The value is tremendous. It is immeasurable. Yet it can be measured, in money. And the work I put into avoiding this, is the product of fear.
So, for me, it always comes back to this. Stood on the precipice of another life. One where I really, truly do what I want to do. Or one where I dabble with it and exhaust myself living two lives.
I choose the other life, the next life, the life I really want, the life I am meant for. And it's scary. Smashing blocks, is terrifying, I know this, it was terrifying with each of those four books I previously didn't think I could do, but I did... And I know it form the Cosmic Mother tarot deck, I didn't think I could design and sell, but I did.... This is my time, the kids are a bit older, I'm ready to do that particular work. Are you ready to do your work?
I am here. And I am opening to the universe to send what I desire, and what I fear my way, and instead of dodging it when it arrives, I will damned well ride it. I am ready.
Does this ring so true for you? What are you coming up against time and time again? What are your stumbling blocks and how can you smash past them? My tarot coaching is a truly powerful tool to take them down and fly forward. Whether you are trying to boot an addiction or reach a goal, I can absolutely help.
Come join me to smash some blocks! Let's do this thing together. This is the one life we have, and we can't sit on the fence a moment longer. Book a tarot coaching session with me by Skype and let me help you using a mix of tarot, meditation, healing and empowering NLP style chat to get where you totally deserve to be!
The Cosmic Mother Tarot Deck - On SALE
£25.00 - £35.00
LAST FEW DECKS REMAINING - No plans for a reprint.
A beautiful, powerful and unique deck of Tarot Cards inspired by the feminine divine and the inner child, designed and painted by myself spiritual author and artist Alice Grist. I am so excited to birth these cards into the world.
These cards were painted by me using watercolour and acrylic paints. I had much helps and inspiration from my then 4 year old daughter, Ivy Belle, who designed the beautiful back cover, and a couple of the cards too (Princess of Swords, 4 of Wands)!
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 a very limited number designed and printed out professionally, so that they may find another life with you! I cant wait to share them with you!
Cosmic Mother cards will connect you to the innocence, fun and folly of the inner child. They make tarot simple, and accessible, whilst retaining the depth and power necessary for spiritual work. I recommend them to everyone who wants to explore tarot from within their own world, using their life as expert and experience.
Order yours today to start the Cosmic Mother Journey!
Price includes postage and packaging. Please provide a valid address in 'note to seller' for your cards to be sent to.
