Six Easy Steps: Spheres for Creative Divination
Spheres is an innovation in Tarot that I created to assist me with understanding energies in play around me in the here & now. Over the years I have been using one version or another of Spheres as a visionary tool and have found it to be invaluable.
Tarot isn’t a science or religion. It is the ancient art of imbuing symbolic content with meaning to enlighten and empower consciousness. When treated with sacred respect oracles provide significant perspectives from the surrounding environment of energies as they fluxuate and coalesce. To take a step back from our daily lives to consider what is really happening is not an easy thing to do. In dealing with demanding tasks, obstacles, interests and concerns, we are often too busy reacting to even consider contemplation.
My use of the essential techniques of Tarot began as a young man, before I ever heard of Tarot. In youth, the mediums of transmission into magical realms are many, including the gifts of imagination, intuition and inspiration that can make a child’s life so special. Though these precious gifts often fade as we enter adulthood they don’t have to.
We all experience the universe as if we were at the centre of it. We may know that this is not so in a scientific or religious sense, yet in a practical sense we live in the middle of everything surrounding us. We each star in our own dramatic movie as trailblazers cutting our own path through to the future. Self-divination is a spiritual technique to assist you with direction, production, storylines, characters, love and financial interests, etc. etc. etc.
As a symbolist I have expertise beyond anyone I have known. The symbolism in Spheres is the precipitate of my lifelong compulsion to understand the nature of the universe of energies through symbols. There is nothing here by chance. Each Sphere has its proper place amongst the others. Develop your ability to interpret the Spheres in terms of your question and you will appreciate their usefulness, just as I do. There are 40 Spheres in all placed on 4 levels; 10 spheres of consciousness, 10 spheres of activity, 10 spheres of influence and 10 vibratory spheres, denoted by numbers. When you ask a question, do so in a sincere and sacred manner and the answers in response will be equally sincere.
