I take my own classes. Yes, I conceived and wrote the course curriculum, isn’t it odd to say that I regularly engage the exercises? Well, actually, no. I know the power of the class activities that I offer my students and I want to benefit from them as well.
Every morning I choose two or three exercises to complete from one of the classes in the Sorelle series or my Tarot and the Twelve Powers series. No matter how many times I do the exercises, I have something fresh and new on the journal page. I’m always surprised because I am never the same person I was a year ago or even a month or week ago. Life is continually changing, and we are part of life, never static.
What remains constant is the energy, inspiration and creative ideas I have after I finish the exercises. Also, engaging the exercises regularly keeps me focused on what I have control over: myself. I’m less likely to take the path slated for failure and grief, the path of trying to change or manipulate someone or something else to get what I want. When I focus on the vision I have for own life and the many creative possibilities of achieving my goals, energy and joy abound. The exercises in my classes guide me toward greater joy and creativity because they act as a portal for accessing my subconscious mind and the wisdom of the collective unconscious mind.
This morning I chose exercises that gave me a clear picture of the level of my life satisfaction. From this vantage point I could determine what specific areas in my life needed more inspiration, energy or creativity. With this understanding, it was easy to craft a plan to raise my life to greater fulfilment and gratification. I was able to see clearly where I wanted to focus my attention, the habits I wanted to change and how to move towards my ideal. I want all of us to live the lives of our dreams. I hope you will join me and my students on the path.
