I just got back from a great weekend away at Everywoman Whistler. An amazing experience all around for the mind, body and spirit and something I highly recommend to everyone in the future.
This was my second time at the event so I knew to ensure that my schedule was full of lots of a) sleep b) breaks c) drinking coffee and d) drinking wine. All were accomplished successfully (including a late night trip to Dusty’s bar and shooters) Yay me!
Everywoman is really about trying new experiences – things that you might not normally try in your day to day life. What I didn’t expect to do was to try a Tarot Reading for the first time. I was actually very apprehensive about the whole thing, but after some encouragement (and cajoling) I signed up.
Roxanne is a lovely soul, someone who I hope to be like once I hit the half century mark (queue the slightly panicked feeling as that is only 9 years away!). She is light and happy and intuitive and living a life that she WANTS to lead. And she is one groovy chick to boot who rocks the tie dye in a most bohemian fashion.
And she reads palms…. Did you know that your left palm is the the life/path you were “born with” and the right palm is the life you actually are leading? Cool huh? Definitely some interesting insights came from my reading including the prediction of living in a foreign country in the future – oh la la!
Then onto the cards…I was nervous because of course everyone thinks they are going to pull up some scary evil death cards. The beauty about what Roxanne does is that she is just giving you a glimpse of the possibilities and the paths that lie ahead, but you always have choice in ultimately determining your path. She can give clarity where maybe there is fog, and instill confidence in your decisions and that you are leading the life you are meant to live.
So my cards were interesting for sure…lots of works stuff, a few months to expect a total “shit storm” to hit, then more work opportunities….and finally……
……actually I won’t get into those final few cards but lets just say that my very last card was “The Empress” – a lovely blissful lady sitting in a field (pregnant – GASP!) with blue skies all around. A happy ending perhaps?
