Hi Rodney, I have talked to a couple of people who didn't resonate with the Inner Child Cards... When they were given to me, I didn't even know what they were called... it took me a bit to figure it out... I was drawn to the art first and turned off by the 'fairy tales'... The art, as it turned out was created by my childs art teacher and all these synchronicities started coming into play...

First and foremost though, the cards tiggered my intuition so much so that I had to listen clearly... For the first time, I didn't struggle with 'remembering' the traditional/technical meanings of the cards... Often times if not most times, my intuitions were in alignment with the traditional meanings... Even better!

I am amazed to see how much Fairy tales carry this esoteric symbolism within them that are so parallel with the Tarot... Its really interesting... Its as if they are two different systems of the same thing... Sort of like the Kabbalah and tarot are so closely related, so it is with Fairy Tales...

Although they seem childlike, they really just speak straight to the heart and are very mature in essence... Old soul quality...

Ok, ok, as you can see I am in love with this deck and I'll quit being biased, but I really do mean what I share!

and about spending this much time with a card - it is a low, so to speak, but one I am accepting because its brought on by a busy holiday season... I have had to incorporate the teachings into my daily BUSY routine... The busy time is somewhat waning and my desire to stay committed is great so with that said, perhaps it is that the Magician and the High priestess have alot to say about PATIENCE!

I look for them to manifest themselves within me and in my daily life... I know the cards on the surface... I am really looking to have dialogue and relationship with each 'person' and symbol in the card in a significant way... See each card as an aspect of myself... Feel a connectedness so that when it comes to reading for another, I can HEAR what each one has to say...

The night I spent with the Fool (haha, that could be taken many ways! hahaha!) I had such fond feelings and an understanding... That night, I slept with my deck... studying the card visually before closing my eyes and in my dreams, the card was actually lifelike... hmmm how to explain... It stayed 'flat' so to speak, not 3-d, but it had movement and an ALIVE feeling... It showed me these cards are keys to our inner world... KNowing and really GETTING IT are different things...

So anyways, since I've babbled away as if this was a journal, I might as well print it out and put it in my Tarot Notebook! ha

One thing about me, that you may start to notice, perhaps, is that I AM an eternal optimist... sometimes to my demise... and so I don't always perceive when I am experiencing a LOW, yet I can see where this may become frustrating if we don't move along... I'm 35 now, when I'm turning 40 and sitting with the Wheel of Fortune I may not be so optimistic! ...

I think I am tending to look at it as though, taking my time and patience is part of what the card has to teach - Whereas with the Fool, it was quick and somewhat hasty, yet insightfull at the same time...

I might also ponder that a 'lesson' of this card (H.P.) is to be careful of laziness... To get where I am going will continue to take perseverence, going within, and focus... I can't sit on the Priestess throne for eternity... *smiling

I sense it might be time, soon, to move on to The Empress... ahhhhh...

See you on the path!
