Palmistry and Relationships – by Joe Nicols

Palmistry has been traced back several thousand years to pre-vedic India.

find-palmistry-at-metaphysical-life-expoI practice rational or scientific palmistry, which relates to the interpretation of the actual lines and structures in the hand, as opposed to using the palm purely as a psychic movie screen similar to “scrying” with a crystal ball. Rational palmistry covers most major areas of a person’s life, including relationships.

Where to start?

In interpreting the indicators in the palm, it is important to determine which hand is dominant, and in about 85% of folks it is the right hand. If the person is ambidextrous, [Read more…]

A Bell and A Pomegranate: How to Find Balance! – by Rev. Eva Lott

fruit-pomagranate-plantThere is a story in the Old Testament in the book of Exodus about how the Holy Priests were to dress. 

Specific instructions were given as to the design of their vestments.  The hemline of the garment, and how it was to be decorated, is the part that I’m writing about today.

The hemline was to be adorned with “a bell, and a pomegranate, a bell, and a pomegranate” roundabout the hem.  It made for a lovely symmetrical design, but more than that, it carried a message that we can still interpret today to have meaning for our lives.

There was an energy or a rhythm to the flow of the garment that had the weights at the bottom, suggesting that there was purpose in the design.  My understanding is that the bell could symbolize a gift, and the pomegranate a fruit.  The reason this is significant for spiritual development is because the concept is about balancing the practical elements we have to work with.

I first became interested in understanding the importance of this design when I connected the writings of the new testament references to the “gifts of the Spirit” and the “fruits of the Spirit.”  A closer examination revealed that there were nine gifts and nine fruits.

I Corinthians 12 lists the gifts as: 

  1. Word of Wisdom
  2. Word of Knowledge
  3. Faith
  4. Healings
  5. Working of Miracles
  6. Prophecy
  7. Discerning of Spirits
  8. Different Kinds of Tongues
  9. Interpretation of Tongues

Galatians 5 lists the fruits as:

  1. Love
  2. Joy
  3. Peace
  4. Longsuffering
  5. Kindness
  6. Goodness
  7. Faithfulness
  8. Gentleness
  9. Self Control

I began to understand that the significance of having a balance in my life as related to my understanding and use of spiritual gifts was tempered by the outworking of my character, or my soul’s expression of values.

This really came home for me when reading the “Love Chapter,” Corinthians 13, where it states that I can have all the gifts but that if I don’t have Love, then I am just making a lot of noise like a clanging cymbal.

At the soul level, we understand this to mean that the person who allows their ego to be inflated by the awareness of their spiritual giftedness will be off-balanced.

Our service to others in this lifetime can flow with the knowledge that we are able to balance the outworking and manifestations we seek by practicing the expression of Love as we allow our gifts to be experienced through us.

The History of the Orgone Ennergem – by Dian Mahaffey

Dian Mahhaffey - Ennergems - at Austin Metaphysical and Holistic Life EXPOIn the late 1930s, a doctor and scientist named Wilhelm Reich posited that an unseen energy permeates the Universe.

He called that energy Orgone.

He discovered that orgone energy exists in two states, Dead Orgone (DOR) and Positive Orgone (POR). His research concluded that Dead Orgone (DOR) is bad for living beings and creates sickness and disease, while Positive Orgone (POR) promotes wellness and health.

Dr. Reich discovered that layers of organic (carbon containing) material, alternating with layers of inorganic (metal) material would create an effect that balanced DOR and POR in the immediate environment.

In the late 1990s, other researchers (Don Croft at educate-yourself.org, for one) began creating a matrix with the same properties, mixing epoxy resin (the organic layer) with metal shavings (the inorganic layer) to create Positive Orgone (POR). Quartz crystals were added to increase the intensity of the field generated and to create devices that actually transformed the DOR into POR, instead of just balancing them.

Dead Orgone (DOR) produces [Read more…]

How to Choose a Tarot Deck – by Kate Braun

Choosing a Tarot deck can be a daunting process. There are so many different designs, artists, and themes.

How To Choose A Tarot DeckYou may “Google” various sites that will show you pictures of the individual cards in various decks; you may observe the various decks various Tarot readers use at Metaphysical Fairs and ask those practitioners why they chose a particular deck; but ultimately you should select the deck that most appeals to you. You should also be prepared to try a different deck if your choice doesn’t work for you as you hoped it would.

P.D. Ouspensky’s The Symbolism of the Tarot says that Tarot can interface with other metaphysical systems such as astrology, numerology, alchemy, and Kabballah. Some decks include symbols for other metaphysical systems [Read more…]

Soul-Speak: Connecting to Your Inner Self – by Leslie Werling

Yoga, Meditation, Inner SelfWhen the soul speaks it can take on any language, any form.

It can be an act, a phrase, an image, a voice. For each of us it is familiar, powerful, loving and kind.

It is our Truth.

.
To fully achieve this blessed connection takes a quiet mind and an open heart.

Doing so is not a gift or an act that one person deserves more so than another, but a connection we should all aim to achieve. It is within this realm that all of our answers lie, where healing awaits and understanding grows. [Read more…]

Gifts from Lemuria – by Teri Van Horn

Gifts From Lemuria - by Teri Van Horn - Learn more about Lemuria and Atlantis
Throughout history, we’ve heard about how magnificent Atlantis was.

That it was this magical island, where humanity was extremely advanced and where we first learned to work with the energy of crystals, as well as being the originators of the Mystery School teachings of the Hindu, Mesopotamian, Egyptian, Greek, Roman, and Western European civilizations.

It’s been ‘common knowledge’ that Atlantean and Lemurian cultures have existed in excess of ten thousand years ago. However, I’ve learned over the years, that many of the things that we’ve learned about Atlantis and her sister island, Lemuria, were very different. [Read more…]

Meditation In Theory And Practice – by Kramer Wetzel

Because there are some questions that Google can’t answer….

Meditation - Spiritual Life Productions - Austin TexasMaybe 28 years ago, a mentor at the time exposed me to true Zen Buddhism meditation. Little tough pillow, a wood stand like a doll’s table, super-esoteric texts, and sitting zazen for several hours a day.

I was exposed. Material crossed my consciousness. I moved on.

In Austin, all those years, I developed a “walking meditation” practice. From the old place in east Austin, it was maybe four miles around the eastern loop of the hike and bike trail, and that was the first iteration. It gave me many experiences that have long been incorporated into my horoscopes and readings. There’s also a sense that I was answering a need for meditation with a walking version. Turns out that walking meditation is a formal process. [Read more…]
