We work as helping professionals in our day job where people come to us for really just one thing – clarity. In that sense, we are like the lantern-bearer holding up the lantern so that the light goes a little further on their paths and they can see their way forward. Things can get tough especially if you don’t understand the rules, aka universal laws and how to play this game of life.
But take heart. The ancient sages have figured it out a long time ago and written up the rule book in the teachings of Advaita Vedanta where you will find the solution to end all suffering begins with self-knowledge. If you are willing to do the work to know your true self, or nature, you will have dominion over all things. Even Sun Tzu said the same thing in The Art of War. To know yourself is half the victory won. To know your enemy is the other half. For us, our greatest saboteur is the mind.
We are all powerful creators of our destiny
That’s really the message behind self-realisation. It’s all about transcending the mind. That our potential is limitless once we drop all the limits we’ve set for ourselves out of ignorance or avidya. It’s exactly the same message behind manifesting and creating abundance or whatever your heart desires. The trick is to transcend the limitations of your mind and to expose the saboteurs that live in your subconscious. It’s a beautiful moment when clarity dawns: Who am I? Why am I here? What is my purpose?
We are all spiritual beings having a human experience
These are very spiritual questions and the search for the answers is part of the whole phenomenon of incarnation. We are supposed to make our way back home. Yet home is already here inside us except that we are blind to it. It’s true. Most of the time we are searching blindly here, there, everywhere. And you are totally forgiven if you ask, “Is this some sort of cosmic joke? Why weren’t we given the rule book?” That was our reaction too when it first hit us that life is really a game where we’ve got to figure out the rules as part of the game. Yes, it’s a joke on a cosmic scale that the ancient rishis call the ‘leela’. You just need to know the rules of the game to play it well. And it begins with knowing who you are. It doesn’t matter what modality we use in our work, it still boils down to what matters most to you: Who Am I. Why is this happening to me?
In case you are curious, we do our work using a blend of modalities that include personality typing, grief recovery, counselling, reiki, pranic healing, chakra work, yoga, expressive therapies, and hypnotherapy. We all have graduate degrees in our own speciality fields and conduct psycho-social workshops from time to time to impart life skills to folks to better understand and manage their lives more effectively. We are lifelong students of the mysteries of life and the psyche and therefore have no qualms including Tarot imagery in our psycho-spiritual work.
