The Smoky Mirror

All the most ancient systems of knowledge assert that physical existence is created by the mind, which projects the reality the individual then experiences. Perception is a “smoky mirror” — smoky to the degree of the individual’s realization of their role in creating what appears in the mirror, and possibly even the mirror itself.

I am the Smoky Mirror, because I am looking at myself in all of you, but we don’t recognize each other because of the smoke in-between us. That smoke is the Dream, and the mirror is you, the dreamer. ~ Ruiz, Don Miguel, The Four Agreements

The analogy of Tarot to language is obvious: each card in a reading can be seen as a word in a sentence. In a language, a word is made up of characters that are each symbols that stand in for a packet of information. As the symbol-characters are strung together to create a sentence, so the symbols and archetypes in a card can be assembled by the brain into a cohesive unit of meaning. And in the same way that words are strung together to create a meaningful sentence, so images on the cards in a reading can be assembled in a coherent and meaningful sentence.

The Secret of Creative Manifestation

In the unenlightened individual, the system of creative manifestation takes an unconscious turn, still manifesting, but in a way that doesn’t serve the greater evolvement of the individual. The monsters of undigested fears and overwhelming negative emotions populate the dreams and the reality of the person’s field, eventually spilling out like a sickness into the collective conscious.

Only when we are open enough to see that consciousness may be greater than that which can be contained in the physical brain, can we understand that reality may be much more than we can currently comprehend. To understand the way reality works at the quantum level, the individual has to first realize that thoughts and emotions influence perceptions, if not reality itself. Once that first step has been taken away from literal, materialistic, so-called “rational” explanations, it is possible to open up to a psychic reality that runs parallel to material existence, a veritable river of consciousness and information that is infinitely vast, broad, and deep.

Quick Trick for Reading any Tarot Card

To understand the cards at a glance, you can see the number of the card as a verb and the suit as the modifying adverb. When you put them together, you have the beginning of a sentence, which can convey a meaning. Thus, you only have to learn the meaning of each suit and of each number to be able to determine what a card means when you get it in a reading. This provides a baseline for the development of your personal lexicon.

Think of the number of the card as the main meaning of the card modified by the suit it is in.

Each suit brings a subtle energy to modify the energy of the number. The suits trace a four step path of manifestation, headed by a Major Arcana card that expresses a more universal principle or natural law. Thus the number Three, which is the number of the Divine Child, and is basically about childlikeness and creativity, translates as different variants of this base energy in the suits. The Three emerges into its archetypical expression as “imagination,” represented by The Empress, Key #3, in the Major Arcana.

The path of the number Three in The Tarot of Creativity:

3 of Fire/Wands
play/spontaneity

3 of Air/Swords
curiosity/discovery

3 of Water/Cups
express/joy

3 of Earth/Pentacles
explore/cultivate

3 The Empress (Major Arcana)
Imagination

The Language of the Higher Self

As an artist, it is obvious to me that the Tarot is a visual language of archetypes and symbols, but it is more than that: it is a map masked as a game that outlines a path for the seeker of personal empowerment. The Tarot is meant to address the way our greater psychic awareness, aka the Higher Self, communicates through symbols. A deck of cards with images is a perfect language for the symbol-based reality of the right brain. The right brain gathers information from disparate sources and synthesizes the bits and pieces in order to derive a meaning or construct something new.

The left brain catalogues information and data like the hard drive of a computer. In the enlightened, whole individual, the right brain is the creative brain, while the left brain is in charge of executing the directives of the Soul that are coming in from the right brain in practical, physical ways. Thus, in the enlightened individual, the left brain becomes the “personal assistant” of the Higher Self; its job is to bring the rarefied intent of the Higher Self into physical form. The left brain is a crucial component in creative manifestation: it has very practical physical skills.

Communicating With Your Higher Self

The whole point of esoteric practices like the Tarot is to reestablish the natural system of the divine triad with the Higher Self or Super Conscious as the director, the ego as the personal assistant or executor of the will of the Higher Self, and with the subconscious/physical body as the energy source, and place for manifestation on the material plane. In order to experience the harmony of the divine triad, the Tarot teaches us to purify ourselves of all unconscious thoughts and emotions. Higher awareness is always a conscious choice, not a default condition.

The purpose of tools like the Tarot is to put you in contact with your Higher Self by accessing your natural intuition. In order to do that, you must learn how to choose your vibrational signature. As long as you consistently resonate with the frequencies of the lower emotions and dense, disempowering belief systems you cannot “hear” the messages of Spirit, or your Higher Self. If you cannot hear the voice of your Higher Self, you are like a boat without a rudder on the sea of life.

A Tool for Personal Empowerment

Not everyone sees the Tarot as I do, as a tool for personal empowerment and evolution. Chances are if you are attracted to this book, you resonate with this philosophy, and are intrigued by the subliminal, universal messages that seem to underlie the card images and titles. To me, the deck shows a system for understanding the underpinnings of duality, while it hints at the larger reality that lies underneath.

What I call the Higher Self or Spirit is not God, it is the larger part of you, the part that could not come wholly into this level of density, this material existence. The self-conscious is the ego/mental body that thinks (erroneously) that it has to be in charge. The subconscious is the emotional/physical body. These together form what I call “the divine triad” of the enlightened individual.

Most of us are not able to overcome the ego; however we try, we always fail because the ego cannot be fought or overcome. If the ego dies, so does the whole person. The only way forward is to demote the ego from its position of control, which it assumed upon entry to the Matrix, which features power over others as a theme and fear-separation as its core programming. You have to make friends with all parts of yourself in order to achieve harmony, cooperation, and wholeness. The enlightened individual goes from a being at war with himself to a being at peace in whatever world he finds himself.

The Power of Your Intent

The implicate or sea of awareness was known to ancient mystics, and alchemists; it is what the mystics might refer to as the cosmic mind stuff; it is a sea of consciousness that underlies everything else. In the Tarot the quantum implicate is represented in the card The High Priestess, while the explicate, or unfolded order is the world of appearances, represented in the next card in the Major Arcana, The Empress. The Empress card represents the natural world of matter — Newtonian physics. The world of the senses is the result of the energy, or rather the potential, underlying the form, the quantum implicate represented by The High Priestess.

The Tarot teaches the principles of the universe and what happens with the application of directed consciousness in the first seven cards of the Tarot. The Tarot allows us to tap into this awareness through our intuitive interpretation of the images on the cards.

The Power of Synchronicity

“Synchronicity” was another unique term coined by Carl Jung. Synchronicity is the occurrence of two or more events that appear to be meaningfully related but not causally related. Synchronicity holds that such events are “meaningful coincidences;” it implies that, just as events may be connected by causality, they may also be connected by meaning.

Synchronicity is an ever present reality for those who have eyes to see. ~Carl Jung

Man is compelled by his nature to search for meaning — he is compelled to make order out of apparent chaos. This organizing principle of the mind may be what creates reality itself.

~~~

Meaningful coincidences can be thought of as pure chance; but as they accumulate, as the correspondence becomes more exact and elaborate, their probability decreases and they become unthinkable, thus becoming impossible to be thought of as mere randomness, and lacking all possible causal explanation, one must see in said events a manifestation of order. ~ Carl Jung

~~~

According to mystics, reality was created by the cosmic mind as a mirror for the consciousness of Itself. The phenomenon of synchronicity that Jung defined is one of the ways for the connected nature of the underlying reality of consciousness to reveal itself.

In a game such as the Tarot, the natural process of synchronicity is given free play. The randomizing of the cards initiates the process, as you clear your mind of all preconceptions or wishes. Then as you deal the cards, you find that the cards seem to reflect an inner voice. The relationship of the cards to each other and their positions in the spread are all meaningful, and are interpreted according to knowledge and beliefs that you already have. When you put this together with the question you asked, the information becomes even more personalized, and intimately meaningful. Perhaps the Tarot should be called the “synchronicity game,” a device that allows the Higher Self to use the magic of synchronicity to speak to you in a language of images and words.

The Quantum Explanation

The running of a random computer program, or a good card shuffle, allows synchronicity free play. And it allows the mind to peer behind the curtain of the holographic universe to see how consciousness creates reality, as in the famous “double-slit” quantum experiment, where the expectations of the viewer influenced the (apparent) outcome of the experiment.

Quantum mechanics is a form of physics that is subject to the rules of consciousness, rather than to the rules of density or physical matter. Consciousness rules the world of the subatomic; it is the energy behind the world of appearances.

The quantum nature of consciousness and the way the mind is geared engenders the eventual realization that there is no such thing as empirical reality; because without the existence of an objective observer who can stand outside the experiment, there is no chance that an objective reality exists. It would mean that there is no tree that can fall in the forest without someone to hear it fall, or more precisely, without someone to expect it to make a sound when it falls.

God and the Devil

Someone once defined God as a principle of wholeness, and this is the best definition that I can find; it supports the ideas found in the symbolism of many ancient philosophies and esoteric knowledge worldwide, and in the images of the Tarot itself (see the definition for the symbol CIRCLE). Since the Tarot shows us archetypical images of goddesses, angels, and devils that might seem to support certain beliefs, I think it is necessary to address what I see as the higher purpose of the Tarot. To do that, I will try to define as best as I can the underlying concepts and terms that are in this book.

The Tarot is meant to be taken symbolically, not literally. For instance, the Devil represents an archetype of the misuse of power: in the Tarot, the image of the Devil is the reverse of The Lovers card. The principle of Love shown in The Lovers/LOVE card, indicates a holistic awareness, inclusion, unity consciousness, acceptance, equality and abundance; the Devil is the opposite side of the coin, indicating a focus on a materialistic view to the exclusion of everything else. Believing in the Devil lends power to this concept of separation, thereby increasing the archetype’s influence. You give this concept life by believing in it and contributing your emotional power to it.

This is why the Devil card in The Tarot of Creativity is titled “The Shadow.” To Carl Jung, the archetype of the Shadow defines everything in yourself that you cannot see, or don’t want to see. It is an archetype that is understood the world over. Why? Because the creative system of duality requires shadow to balance the light. Or rather, the shadow defines the light as the light defines the shadow. A dualistic system creates out of the polarity of opposites; it can be no other way. Without the negative side, the system of duality would be like a teeter-totter that has only one side, or like a person trying to walk with only one leg.

Christ, the Tarot, and the Path of Ascension

To anyone with the slightest interest in mythology, the archetypes in the Tarot are clear to see. For example, a goddess or god represents a guiding principle for humanity: the universal concept behind the figure is what makes it an archetype. An archetype is a symbol that conveys a universal concept, usually in the form of an image, that is instantly understood no matter its geographic origin; archetypes transcend cultural boundaries and temporal beliefs.

Christ, for instance, represents a universal archetype of the principle of Love. The Christ Child, in his innocence (lack of beliefs) and purity, sends a powerful message about how to achieve enlightenment by returning to the original state of innocence and purity of purpose that we had in the Garden of Eden. His message is to become “like a child”— in becoming like him, you are able to “ascend” in frequency through the power of unconditional love. It doesn’t matter whether you believe that Christ is God, or whether you think he was an ascended master, a prophet, or simply a good man. His example communicates an archetype that embodies the principles of wholeness, unconditional love, and unity that speak to all of us.

The Journey of the Fool ~ Part 4

The Fool walks through not just the Major Arcana, which symbolize the “higher” path of spiritual mastery, but through the other cards in the Tarot. He travels through the Minor Arcana, the four suits which each represent a different path of Earth-based mastery. The Fool nears the edge of the cliff but his eyes are on the sky, as if he has a vision of a totally different reality. He is so innocent to physical reality that he doesn’t comprehend that he might fall. A little dog that represents socialized consciousness nips at his heels to try to warn him of the dangers of his foolishness. Jumping off a cliff is certainly foolish in the eyes of “normal” people, but the Fool comes from a place where physical, or social rules don’t apply. The Fool is looking up, he has a vision.

What is the vision of The Fool? He desires to become The Angel or Perfected Man. His task on Earth is to remember his original, perfected Self while in physical form. He came from a state of perfection, and his job is to “re-member” or reassemble himself back into perfection while experiencing duality.

The Journey of the Fool ~ Part 3

The Tarot follows the progression of The Fool on his path through life, as he strives to find what he lost; to remember the higher consciousness that he forgot when he was forced into spiritual amnesia by the density of this plane.

The Fool is arguably the most important card in the deck, but this has more to do with the fact that the Fool, as the daring Hero, is a universal archetype. He is a hero because he dares to do what may seem to be dangerous or foolhardy to other souls: come to Earth.

The Journey of the Fool ~ Part 2

…Calling this card “The Fool” is a blind — an intentionally misleading title, meant to confound the profane seekers of enlightenment, who would not be able to reconcile the “foolishness” of a Fool with goal of wisdom or enlightenment. The Fool stands in for the Hero; a universal archetype that thrives in the mystical arcana of every civilization on Earth.

A hero ventures forth from the world of common day into a region of supernatural wonder: fabulous forces are there encountered and a decisive victory is won: the hero comes back from this mysterious adventure with the power to bestow boons on his fellow man. ~Joseph Campbell, The Hero with a Thousand Faces (1949)

The Hero is in every fable, in every culture. Often he starts out as an outcast or loner. He begins his journey as the underdog in a battle or situation that grossly disfavors him, and proceeds on his quest — suffering one or many dark nights of the Soul — without help from his fellows. He is on his own. Everyone he left behind thinks that he is a Fool. And from their standpoint that is the only thing he can be. Often he wonders if what they think of him is really true, but, although he may waver and doubt himself, he cannot stop his quest once he has started…

The Art of the Tarot

The art of the Tarot is best represented by the Temperance/ALCHEMY card, which demonstrates the magic of creative synthesis and the alchemy of deliberate creation. Reading the Tarot involves a creative synthesis of the Reader’s personality, intuition, knowledge, and wisdom, married in a mystical union with the Reader’s Higher Self, achieved through the medium of the pictures and numbers of the cards.

Whenever we read the Tarot, we are participating in an intriguing tradition of self-discovery, remembrance, and creative envisioning that reaches back into the mists of time, and prepares us for our journey into an empowered future.

The Journey of the Fool ~ Part 1

SPIRIT IN MATTER—at once both the journey and the seeker of experience. The Fool represents the Spirit who has descended into matter. He is the holy fool who can be either foolish or wise.

Traditionally, The Fool is the only unnumbered card in ancient decks; modern decks assign the value of Zero to this card. One could argue that the Zero is not a number at all, it is a placeholder that has no intrinsic value. However, the Zero as the universal symbol of the circle is an archetypical concept that defines the vast sea of Cosmic Consciousness, the implicate field. A circle is one of the most ancient glyphs worldwide, appearing in every ancient culture on Earth. The symbol of the circle means Spirit, with its center everywhere and circumference nowhere.

The Fool is the most important card in the Tarot; he is said to be traveling through the deck as he travels through life. Ultimately, the Fool represents everyman in his journey through life. The Fool represents the Soul of the Querent as it journeys through material existence and learns how to apply the laws and principles of the universe in his life…

The Mystery of the Minor Arcana

When I first started studying the Tarot, I didn’t see the connections that I do now. I was confused by the titles and some of the images, which seemed to present a barrier to my understanding. Realizing that my own preconceptions were the cause I redoubled my efforts to “see beyond” the image into its metaphorical, rather than historical, meaning. Then I started to see and understand the archetypes in the Major Arcana.

The lower cards do not contain the same kind of symbols and imagery. It almost seems as if the Tarot is actually two decks: the Major Arcana and the pip cards. When I focused my intuition on the cards they started to speak to me.

But the lower cards continued to mystify me.

I wondered, “Is it possible that the lower cards are as meaningful and powerful as the Major Arcana?” When I considered that the Tarot might be an ancient map for the evolution of man, the wisdom of the cards suddenly began to reveal itself to me.

Hidden in Full View

The originators of the Tarot hid their ancient knowledge in full view, to protect it from those who would keep the average man in ignorance of his true power. The best way to enslave a man is through his mind. The word, “government” means “to rule the mind” (govern-mental). The Tarot, if read properly, and if its guidance is followed rigorously, can empower the individual to question the status quo, and so evolve his own consciousness. This is why a system of self-realization that allows an individual to tap into their own intuition and guidance is recognized as a threat by the ruling class of any epoch, including this one. Of course, the rulers in any system don’t want their constituents to become self-realized; evolved individuals don’t need governance, conventions, or traditions. They follow the dictates of Natural Law. An understanding of the Oneness behind all appearances would not allow them to hurt another. This is what Christ meant when he said, “Whatsoever you do to the least of my people, that you do unto me.”

The Tarot as a Personal Manifestation Machine (part 3)

Now, try one or more of the following ideas:

1. Meditate on your chosen card, choose its equivalent card from the Tarot of Creativity or another deck and see how the meaning for this card enhances your understanding. In the case of a card with a seemingly negative meaning, use it to help you resolve the block indicated. Use an equivalent card in another suit or deck to help advise you on how to proceed.

2. If you chose a card with negative implications, choose a contrasting card that best symbolizes what you want to manifest in your life. If the card was positive then keep the card. Memorize the image so you can recall it at will. Visualize this card, bring it up often throughout the day for as many days as seems appropriate. If you can’t memorize it, then put the card on a table in your home or on your desk where you can see it many times throughout the day. Feel the emotions and feelings in the card, use the image as a mnemonic device to help you visualize your desired outcome.

3. Find the number in all the suits that match your card’s number and line them up to see how to use the power in all of the suits to manifest what you want. If one or more of the cards are “negative” in feel, know that you are merely in a rough spot: use the cards as wise advice to help you correct your course, and ease your transition. Choose another card in the same suit that best epitomizes what you do want and use it as in #2 above.

4. Bring up the Major Arcana card that matches the number of your card for the “meta-meaning” of your cards number. Use this card as wise counsel to advise you on how to best proceed, or how to better understand your situation.

5. Look at the cards in the suit that precede and follow the card you chose (if you chose the Six of Wands, you would be looking at the Five of Wands that precedes your card, and the Seven of Wands that follows it). See how the progression may show you what you need to work on and how to handle what may happen as a result. Alternatively you can use these three cards as a Past, Present, Future reading to gain insight on your path.

The Tarot as a Personal Manifestation Machine (part 2)

You don’t have to memorize the cards, although this helps a lot. If you have memorized all the cards, then you can allow your intuition to bring up a card in your mind. If you are just beginning or have difficulty visualizing the cards, then do this:

Separate your deck into suits; put the Major Arcana in numerical order and set it aside for a while. Then choose the category that reflects what you want to manifest and choose the pile of cards of that respective suit (see above). Now choose a single card from your pile in one of three ways:

TECHNIQUE ONE: Randomize the cards in the suit you chose and pick one. This card will be what your intuition and Higher Guidance wants you to focus on.

TECHNIQUE TWO: Look through the cards and see if one really appeals to you.

TECHNIQUE THREE: Put the cards of the suit in a line on the table progressing from the ace and ending at the king. Look at how the cards progress through the suit. Choose the card that most accurately reflects the place you feel you are right now.

The Tarot as a Personal Manifestation Machine (part 1)

You can use the Tarot like flashcards to help you focus your intent, visualize, and then manifest the life you want. This is a very powerful technique that uses the natural structure of the Tarot. The suits of the Tarot reflect all human desires; this makes it very easy to target the area you want to work with at the moment:

WANDS/FIRE = intent, energy, success, desire, passion, creative inspiration

SWORDS/AIR = mental discipline, details, planning, brainstorming

CUPS/WATER = love, relationships

PENTACLES/EARTH = health, wealth, financial success

MAJOR ARCANA = spiritual laws and progression, spiritual aspirations

Learning how to Handle Reversals in Reading Tarot (part 3)

In general, when a card is upright, its energy is free to manifest; if it is reversed, the energy of the upright card may be blocked, losing power, or not yet fully developed. Many people think that a reversed card means the opposite of the upright card, but this interpretation may be too simplistic once you start really working with the cards, and they start “talking” to you. Here are a few ideas of what a reversal might mean:

~ A hidden energy or influence

~ A developing energy

~ Blocked energy

~ An energy that is waning

~ An inner lesson

~ An event or influence that has recently passed

~ Spiritual information

~ A shamanic or spiritual initiation

~ The opposite meaning
