Bhagvad Gita Narrated in English on iMusic

Well would you look at that. Instead of listening to the Bhagvad Gita on YouTube and needing to keep the screen on the whole time, now you can download it on iMusic. Fabulous.

I listen to it in the car, while I’m folding the laundry, cooking or strap-hanging on my train home. For me, the point is that I’m not closely listening, but that I know it because I’ve heard it so many times. I must have listened to this intensely amazing scripture dozens of times.

Here’s a snippet from Chapter 4:

”Chapter 4, Verse 18

One who sees inaction in action, and action in inaction, is intelligent among men, and he is in the tranecendental position, although engaged in all sorts of activities.

Chapter 4, Verse 19

One is understood to be in full knowledge whose every act is devoid of desire for sense gratification. He is said by sages to be a worker whose fruitive action is burned up by the fire of perfect knowledge.

Chapter 4, Verse 20

Abandoning all attachment to the results of his activities, ever satisfied and independant, he performs no fruitive action, although engaged in all kinds of undertakings.

Chapter 4, Verse 21

Such a man of understanding acts with mind and intelligence perfectly controlled, gives up all sense of proprietorship over his possessions and acts only for the bare necessities of life. Thus working, he is not affected by sinful reactions.

Chapter 4, Verse 22

He who is satisfied with gain which comes of its own accord, who is free from duality and does not envy, who is steady both in success and failure, is never entangled, although performing actions.

Chapter 4, Verse 23

The work of a man who is unattached to the modes of material nature and who is fully situated in transcendental knowledge merges entirely into transcendence.

Chapter 4, Verse 24

A person who is fully absorbed in Krsna consciousness is sure to attain the spiritual kingdom because of his full contribution to spiritual activities, in which the consummation is absolute and that which is offered is of the same spiritual nature.”

Make Oracle Cards Workshop

I’ve been wanting to hold this workshop for the longest, longest time and finally today it all came together, like a beautiful dream, except of course it was real. Bonus.

Thank you to everyone who showed up, and thank you to all the amazing Spirit Guide specialists in creativity and intuition. Let’s do it again soon.

72 Sigils of Power

If you’re only ever going to buy one book on magic, let The 72 Sigils of Power by Zanna Blaise be the one. I know I’ve said that before but this time I really mean it!

On the picture above you see a sigil printed on a piece of paper which I have semi-permanently installed on my altar. (You also get to see just how awful my poor altar looks at the moment – yes I know I need to refresh those flowers.)

What’s so amazing about The 72 Sigils of Power is that you change yourself and from there your understanding of the world, through direct connection with a G_d name. Talk about inner alchemy. The effect is deep, real, lasting change.

The link for the book is an affiliate link, so if you buy the book on the Amazon site I get 10% of the sale. For more book recommendations, see THIS page on this site.

Yokosuka Sunday Street

Save the date in your calendar! If you are in the Tokyo / Kanto area, this is an event not to miss. I’ll be doing the Tarot booth, of course, but there will also be tons of food and drink stalls, craft workshops and a lot more. See you then!

Intention of the Week Online Group Healing

Group intentions work exponentially better than individual intentions. They also have a recoil effect in that you get to join the flow of positivity in the universe, and reap the benefits in a physical way. Experience it for yourself:

Check out Lynne McTaggart’s website HERE and join her group intentions. See how the flow of good things increases in your life. You can even subscribe to her regular group intentions newsletter, you get about one per week, and occasionally you get feedback from the subjects of the intentions with their insanely miraculous recovery.

(sings: “I believe in miracles! Where you from? You sexy thing, you!”)

Thank you, White Fennec Fox

We all have guiding spirits, several of them, that help us throughout our lives. When we want to relate to them closely and we seek them out to communicate with them, they come to us in symbols , visions or dreams, and they help us to understand their natures more easily by showing themselves as animals. You can learn al about this in Ted Andrews’ book How To Meet And Work With Spirit Guides.

One of my beloved subtle energy team members is White Fennec Fox. His particular skill is finding material things of value. Great skill, huh? My darling White Fennec Fox has just helped me to work out how to manifest a chunk of money to get me and my daughter to Europe this summer. How’s that for an MVP? Thank you soooo much, my darling.

PS: If you’re thinking: “Aw, how cute! I want one as a pet”, just don’t. They are much happier in the wild than in your home and are difficult to train. #notapet #dontbeaselfishidiot

Archangels Of Magick

If you’re a regular reader of this blog, you’ll know that I’m a very big fan of the Gallery of Magick. This group of people publishes books on magic that are simple to use and effective. So it was with great pleasure that I bought this latest publication, Archangels of Magick. I’ve had it for a month now to test-drive it before giving my verdict.

As you’d expect from a GoM book, it strays a little on the wordy side but the rituals are very well explained, and easy to follow if you prepare and take care. Their efficacy is, well, really staggering.

You could buy and use this book without any previous knowledge or experience of magic or ritual magic, and all of their books are transformative.

With the warmest thanks for another excellent title.
