RE: Just wondering?
sorry my computer just went nuts and I didn't get to finish!
Anyway it is very nice to meet you.......
thank you for the insight to my "inner knowing" as I call it! I am excited to start exploring with out fear!
And I have studied a bit of Wiccan and the God and Goddess believes. And it makes sense to me......And I like the idea of being comfortable...because I am very comfortable standing on my belief to "Love and not Judge" and I am looking forward in exploring my own ideals and being free of fear!
Thanks again looking forward to getting to know you better...
RE: Just wondering?
I am so excited I let my husband know that I got the cards and he is fine so far! I feel so much better not keeping it from him......!
I am 51 and a mother of 6 (two sets of twins in the mix) all my own birth children ages 30 to 14! I am a Libra.
Spent the the better part of my adulthood very involved in the Four Square Church! I have a ton of information to filter through!
I raised my earlier kids in church and two of them rarely go but my oldest married in the bible belt and is still very involved in church. My youngest 3 girls started in church but have no real draw to it, I have tried to raise all my kids to search for themselves (even the first 3 I just exposed them pushed it)
does any one else come from a Christian back ground and struggles with that back ground?
I am interested in the Tarot and just got my cards and I am very excited about learning. I believe in God and Jesus and the holy spirit but i just can't handle churches and some of "its" believe system any longer. I have studied a little about old world religions and can see so many vains of truth running through old world religions and other religions in general I just can't believe that God uses only the Christian religion to speak to people.
But I still struggle with some inner stuff about all the Christian religion that I was raised in.
Also I am concerned about letting my husband know I am interested in leaning the Tarot, even though we don't attend church any more, he still has his believe system based in the Christian religion.
The whole heaven and hell thing is very strong and the feeling I can't have both, my belief in God/jesus/holy spirit and my believe that God is bigger than the box of the Christian Church!
The thing that "I know that I know" is God has called us to "Love".........and not to "judge", so I am standing on that but still fearing hell if "I step across the line" to learn the Tarot and look at other forms of religions or practices.
On a side note: I have also my whole life known things before they happen and believe that it is a gift from God. It doesn't happen all the time but enough!
thank you for reading this and giving me a place to put words to my feelings, sometime it is nice to know you aren't the only one! So if any of you have been in my place I would love to hear from you...
RE: New Member Welcome!
my name is Sharon but I go by Birdie in here. I am hours new to Tarot and just gave myself a deck for my birthday yesterday! So far I have a few cards I like but I think the Ace of Wands seem to touch me most.
I am looking forward to learning what I can about Tarot and exploring their meaning to my life. I try to live a life of learning and finding wisdom.
Thank you Willow, I did go to the store last night and got the Universal Waite Tarot cards. There is a book "Tarot Made Easy" that I want to pick up in the near future, have you heard of it?
I am an artist and do love the artwork on all the cards I looked at yesterday, that was fun. The store owner gave me a wonderful basic over view of the cards. He mentioned not to be concerned with the reverse of the cards; what is your feeling on that?
I will try your suggestions on exercises and I am looking forward to learning.
