Spiritual lifestyle advice and guidance for modern women from bestselling author Alice Grist.
You may be wondering what on earth this 'Dirty & Divine' is that I continually mention and load up with hashtags. Well for those who are uncertain, here it is broken down.
Firstly it is the title of my next book. Which is an empowering journey using tarot cards as a modern day vision quest. It is startling in it's power, and it shook my life right up. I am offering you the chance to follow my lead and get to know your life from an intimate 'Dirty & Divine' perspective.
But what does that mean? The dirty is your humanity, your muck, your everyday existence. Because once you get a spiritual inkling, the rest of life continues anyway. So you live with a soulful heart, but often induldging very human actions, behavoirs and thoughts. Maybe you beat yourself up about this. Perhaps you wish you could be 'better', or 'more spiritual'. The fact is, your dirty, is perfect. It is exactly the point of your life. Without it there would be very little left to learn, very little left to strive for. It is painful, yet so, very, pertinent.
Your Divine... Well that is a whole other show. It is what underpins you. Irrespective of how spiritual you may feel, or how dirty you become in life. You are always spirit. That is a fact of a spiritual life. Your spirit doesn't leave you, it doesn't become sullied. It just is. Situated fat within your heart, ushering up as intuitions, and quietly hoping that you listen to her whispers.
So there you are; a great big mess of contradiction. A spiritual person with fire in her belly and a catalogue full of mistakes and errors in her past. And it is all perfect.
Dirty & Divine is a spiritual practice. The book leads you through a new way to experience the tarot. It isn't about predictions or fortune telling. Rather is is about taking a pack of pretty pictures and putting them to work on your behalf. Together we use them as a diving board into whatever needs to come up in your life. be that dirty, be that divine, probably it is both.
My trip down the Dirty & Divine lane, changed everything. I hoped for magic, and I got it, coated in dirt. I wanted change, and it came in unexpected ways. It transformed my life, and the fallout from that continues to this day. Dirty & Divine is beautiful in its power. It is not fo the faint hearted. Whilst the idea may be fun, the actioning of it is awesome, is chaotic and renders up the perfect storm.
And your life will change; for the better. But the rip tide that pulls your through each tarot card is a true education. Sky and earth become confused and your Dirty & Divine marry up in ways unexpected. It is a sacred trip to your soul and then out again to the perimters of your grubby flesh.
