Tarot Card reading Of The Sun Tarot card

I’m going to do a Tarot Card Reading of the card named The Sun.
The Sun Tarot Card is my favourite, it signifies happiness and long life. I love this Tarot Card because I am passionate about eating the right foods and doing the right things to stay healthy and this card resonates with me.

Ok, to my brief Tarot Card Reading of The Sun Tarot card.

My art is important to me and The Sun card represents people with an artistic gift or a great love of all things creative. I have an Etsy shop where I sell my art, why not have a quick look? My shop name is PatSuttonArtist

Ok, back to

The Sun Tarot Card.

Here are 6 important traits that I would link to the Sun card:
1. The love of travel.
2. They may have slight OCD and things have to be checked and then double checked.
3. When they start something they need to finish it.
4. Morality is important to this person.
5. This card could be linked to someone with strength and vitality, maybe an athlete or sports person.
6. The Sun card signifies failure of a sure thing so in other words you should not look through rose coloured glasses and you should try to be practical and not be shocked when a sure thing fails.

How Often Do I See The Sun Tarot Card?

I see The Sun card coming up many times for Cancer and Leos and also Aquarius.
I know I am describing myself here, (a Cancerian, into healthy living, art and a little OCD), but I chose this card as my favourite many years ago, way before I knew it’s meaning. Strange eh!

Just to mention, it is great news for a new relationship if I see The Lovers Tarot Card next to Sun Tarot Card. Check out The Lovers Card meaning here.

The Lovers Tarot Card Meaning

The Lovers Tarot card is known to mean more than you see when looking at the card.
The Lovers Tarot card is, obviously about love and love interests but it goes a lot deeper than that.

It can relate to people who are capable of establishing strong bonds, not afraid to tie the knot. Therefore the card has an obvious connection with that of getting marriage or that of forming a union.

The Lovers Tarot Card is also linked to people who are openly sexual, not afraid to show their love in an active way and are very touchy feely.

When you come across The Lovers Card it is important to look closely at the neighboring cards. If the neighboring card is a strong negative card like the 10 of Swords then I would interpret the lovers card as a warning of either dishonesty or adultery.

The Devil Tarot Card Meaning

In a tarot card deck, the Devil card is one which talks about a number of things, one of which would be the emphasis on materialism, as well as being in an unwanted situation in life. The feeling of hopelessness, as well as the feeling of being in bondage is also symbolized by the Devil Tarot Card.

The Devil card is one of the three most famous cards in a tarot card deck. 

The Hanged Man Tarot Card

Another famous card in a tarot card deck would be the Hanged Man Tarot Card, which is basically known to entail not a man hanged by the noose, but rather a man who is hanging, generally, upside down, one foot tied to a tree.

The hanged man tarot card in a tarot card deck is known to symbolize “letting go”, symbolizing acceptance. Also, the card could also mean reversal, which the act of overturning one’s former priorities could take shape in.

The Death Tarot Card

In the many types of cards in a tarot card deck, the Death tarot card is one which is quite famous, and quite understandably considering the nature of death and what it is supposed to say with regards its role in a tarot card deck.


Generally, the death card is one which signifies endings, pertaining to the commencement of a chapter in one’s life, or entailing the act of putting one’s past behind, choosing a brighter one over the other.
The death card also signifies a transition point in life, and could talk about a change in one’s status in one’s life, either for the bad or for the worse. Cutting off one’s excesses, as well as realizing just one had wasted in his or her life would be another symbolism of the death card in a tarot card deck.

The Tarot Quickly Explained

Tarot is the system through which a reading of the cards in a tarot deck helps you through disturbed times by offering to give a reflection on your past, present and future.

Tarot is closely linked with astrology as each card is linked to a planet, part, or astrological sign. Tarot cards are utilized for divination, frequently known as fortune telling. However many therapists have used them too, feeling the cards regularly make patients dig in to how they feel about themselves. This is done through the subconscious. As an example, let’s assume you are aware that at work things aren’t going well, but you don’t let yourself accept it. Continue reading

7 steps on the road to psychic intuition

The Road to Intuition
Have you had that experience when all of a sudden you just had this huge hunch that something is about to happen, and to your surprise, that intuition was eventually translated to reality?

When you feel strongly about something without logical basis to it, that’s called intuition. It comes in three impressions: clairvoyance or “the third eye”, sensing clearly and feeling through listening. Continue reading

They are always with you!

I am privileged to have known a lovely lady by the name of Hilary Fortune. She has passed over now but she was, to me, a truly gifted clairvoyant.
She was the neighbour of Pauline, a friend of mine and she would often sit with us both and chat about her life.MPj04443610000[1]

Please allow me to tell you a truly uplifting tale.
It is a true story about my friend Pauline and a terrible tragedy that devastated her life and how Hilary’s clairvoyant powers helped her.

Pauline’s 19 year old son was killed in a motor bike accident. He was survived by his sister and parents…well I say survived but something died in that house that day.

A couple of years had passed and Pauline was still not coping very well. It was her son’s birthday and the ritual was that, on his birthday, Pauline would meet her daughter at the crematorium to find his name in the memorial book and they would have a little cry together.
Pauline hated that place and on this occasion she arrived a little before her daughter. She waited and waited but her daughter didn’t come. She was lost! Her daughter always had the book ready for her, page open in the right place.

How would she find his name…Pauline searched and searched with tears running down her face but she couldn’t find him. When her daughter finally came she quickly flipped the pages and there he was….. Paul, dearly Beloved of ….

They had a cuddle and cry then they silently made their way home.

As Pauline arrived at her house she saw Hilary sitting on her doorstep waiting for her.

“Pauline, I have seen your son”, she said, “I don’t understand it but this is his message.
He said, The book…couldn’t find my name. Why did you cry? That cold place don’t go any more. Always with you – love you!

Clairvoyance as a term has its origins from the French word claire, which means “clear”, and voyance, “seeing”. It literally means ‘clear seeing’.
Mary clearly saw Paul that day and Pauline could, finally, go on with her life knowing that her son was safe.

When you need comfort in the sadness, when you need to understand the madness, listen for the signs around you and know that love and light surround you!

What I call enlightenment.

What would you define as peace? Would you say it is when the kids have gone to bed and the house is quiet?

Would you say it is when the lights go out in your bedroom and you can relax into a deep sleep?

Perhaps you feel you are at peace when all the bills are paid or the shopping done?…Not really. Continue reading

Have you ever taken the time to consider your life today and
compare it with the expectations you had five years ago?MPj04436600000[1]
Nine times out of ten you will find that things did not
quite work out the way you anticipated them to. Although you
may not be dissatisfied with where you are today, you will
probably still have to admit that several crucial issues
have taken a surprising course: your marriage may have
ended, your career may have undergone a radical change,
people whom you had expected to be around for a long time
may have passed away, and you may have turned into an
individual you would not have recognized five years ago!

It all lies in the hands of time and the encounters you have
with people, knowledge, and general experiences. Indeed: you
find your perspectives changing through the things that
happen to you: what used to be important at one time may
have no meaning anymore for you today. And this will
probably not only pertain to the people in your life, but to
events and goals as well. Paradigms shift continuously, and
the best way to cope with this process is to try and refrain
from setting goals that are too specific. You could, for
instance, just focus on making progress or being happy
instead of formulating in too much details where, with whom,
and how that should happen. Of course some strategizing is
necessary, but too strict a schedule may entangle you in a
web that is hard to escape from when the inevitable
surprises start popping up.

A man who expected his family to stay together till his
dying day suddenly found that his wife was leaving him. She
took the children along, and he turned into a lonely goat.
It took him three years and countless, extensive dialogues
with elders in his community to understand that the courses
of events in his life were not merely up to him, since they
were intertwined with other individuals who all had their
own desires and dreams, some of which – unfortunately – were
no longer in tune with his. He finally understood the
message and learned to accept the facts as they were
presented to him. He has since established a level of
understanding with his ex-partner, one that is better than
it ever was during their marriage, and he has been working
toward a more mature relationship with his – now grown up –
children. Gradually this man is regaining his balance,
meanwhile understanding that happiness today looks much
different than he would have envisioned it some years ago.

This simple example does not have to be limited to the
private areas of one’s life: surprises can occur just as
frequently in any other area. Business people know that like
no other, due to the fact that they operate in an
environment that is subject to influences from practically
all sides: unexpected strategic moves from competitors,
inventions that can make their product obsolete in a
heartbeat, or government decisions that can affect their
profitability or perhaps their entire existence, to name a
few. For this category of people, flexibility in dealing
with surprises is even more vital than for the ones that
expect the happily-ever-after dream to keep their marriage

Life truly requires a level of management that should never
be underestimated: whether you are spending most of your
time in an airplane, a hotel room, your office, or just at
home. The bag of surprises is presented to each of us, every
day again. Some surprises taste sweet, but most of them have
a bitter foretaste. It is up to us, then, to adapt our taste
buds to these new challenges, and unleash our positive
imagination and our sense of humor on them, so that we will
be able to develop the right spirit in approaching them. And
then, five years from now, we will be where we expect to be:
in a better and happier place, no matter where that is!

Do you dream of having a book published, but don’t knowCB009254
where to turn? Already have a book, but unsure of how to
promote it? Looking for cost effective high-return
strategies to market your book? If you answered yes to any
of these questions, then the following information is for

Many writers and aspiring authors are under the mistaken
belief if their book is published by a publishing house they
can sit back and watch sales miraculously happen. Nothing
could be further from the truth. Fact is, competition to
have your manuscript noticed and published by a large house
is extremely fierce. Additionally, no matter who publishes
your book, you absolutely must take an active roll in
marketing, promoting and selling your book.

Moreover, profit margins are not extremely good when you go
through a publisher. Sure, if you sell tens of thousands or
hundreds of thousands of books, you make substantial amounts
of money. In reality only a small percentage of writers
achieve this level of success.

A great model for achieving success is to self-publish and
actively promote your book. Self-publishing is one of the
best ways to get your manuscript to market quickly is to.
Another great benefit of self-publishing is you have
complete control of the creative process. You make the
decisions on content, editing, cover design, title and you
reap the profits.

A primary downside with self publishing are costs involved.
Depending on whether or not you hire an editor, designer,
layout person and cost of printing, the initial outlay for
self-publishing a book can be several thousands of dollars
for the first run. Besides there are no guarantees your book
will sell. However, you can lessen your risk of costs and
increase your level of sales with a simple formula.

Imagine if you could self publish with no out of pocket
money. Additionally, imagine gaining lots of free publicity
and visibility in your market at the same time. I know this
to be true, because I have done it.

The following formula is one that can be used by virtually
anyone to raise funds to publish a book. In addition, you
can gain great visibility, do the initial run with no out of
pocket money and position yourself for volume sales.

Although the formula is rather simple in concept, it is not
necessarily easy to do as it takes planning, time, effort,
consistency and great follow up to make it work as well as

You can write, publish and market a book with no out of
pocket expenses by hosting a seminar with a topic that is
linked to the book. In order to keep costs down in the
rollout host the seminar in your local market. You can
further offset costs by securing sponsors for the seminar.
Event sponsors provide funding necessary to the costs of an
event. They can either contribute in actual dollars or with
in-kind offerings. Sponsors underwrite various aspects of an

I did this at the beginning of December with my most recent
book, “101 Ways to Get Your Foot in the Door” and had an
incredible response. Although there was a lot of work
involved in the rollout the results were, and continue to
be, incredible.

Besides writing content for the book each author had a very
specific role. Mine was the marketing and promotions of the
book. The first level was to develop a clear marketing
strategy for my 3 co-authors and myself.

Prior to beginning the writing of the book, we developed a
very detailed project plan. The plan included hosting an
event to introduce the book to our local market.

Knowing the costs to an event such as we were planning, I
knew it would be beneficial to secure sponsors. I developed
a very solid proposal for sponsorship of the seminar.
Because of very detailed information and showing the
sponsors how they would gain from being involved, I was able
to secure two excellent sponsors. One is a primary business
newspaper in Utah and the other is an organization who
targets start up businesses.

The paper was more than willing to do some advertising for
the event in exchange for some great visibility and
additional subscribers. The organization offset the costs of
the room and audio-visual equipment in exchange for mentions
in the advertising and all pre-event promotions. Both
sponsors were given the opportunity to do a 5 minute
presentation at the seminar and distribute promotional
information to everyone in attendance. It was a win/win all
the way around.

Had I not had a clear-cut proposal for the potential
sponsors chances are I would not have secured their support.
Also, I know it is easier to gain support from businesses
who know me rather than trying to get sponsorship from an
organization who has no idea who I am. The same will be true
for most anyone.

With day of event expenses covered, we could now focus on
generating revenue for publishing the book. This was done by
pre-selling the book. Anyone who purchased the book sight
unseen by November 28, 2004 was given a seat into the
seminar on December 2nd.

With initial revenues from pre-seminar sales designed to
offset book production costs we were able to write, market
and publish the book with no out of pocket money. By
utilizing the databases of all four authors, press releases,
pre-event radio interviews and presentations at Chambers and
local organizations, word of mouth promotions, and other
low-cost/no-cost forms of promotions, we sold over 350
copies sight unseen. (Cost of the book is $19.95)

We had well over 200 people attend the seminar as some of
the pre-event purchases were from folks who were out of the

A key to our success was having a functional website were
the book was (and is) available. We utilized online
credit card purchasing options for buyers. In that 80% of
our sales were done with Internet and credit cards, we would
have been remiss to not use this as a method to sell.

As we were pre-selling it was important to let people know
that the cost of a seat into the seminar was the book. Also,
if they didn’t make it to the seminar we would mail them the
book for $4 more or they could pick it up. The $4 covered
mailing costs. If we didn’t do this we would have cut way
into our profit margin.

We made a strong point of letting people know they were
buying the book, not the seat into the seminar. However, the
only way into the seminar was to buy the book.

To gain even more value from the event and increase day of
event revenues each author sold other products Back of the
Room (BOR). One author sold a sales training program. The
signups that day realized several thousand in additional
revenue for her.

The two other authors sold specialty items and set up
appointments for those who were interested in such things in
their sales campaigns.

I sold my Street Smarts Marketing and Promotions™ program as
an E-book. This helped me to generate several thousand in
additional revenue. Knowing audience members were already
interested in my material, I put together a special day of
event package with three of my e-products bundled together.
Everyone received one of my order forms upon registering.

At the end of my session I did a short sales presentation.
All folks had to do was fill out the order form. With each
sale, all I had to do was process their credit cards and
email them the PDF document. No mailing costs or printing
costs. Nearly a 100% profit margin.

Many self published authors shy away from doing
presentations claiming to be an author and not a speaker.
Fact is, if you get in front of a target audience who is
interested in your topic and you present your ideas well the
amount of books you can sell is incredible.

The book complimented by a well delivered presentation allow
you to get in front of meeting planners who may be in a
position to utilize your services and your book at a later
date. You may also have representatives from companies who
want to buy large quantities of your book.

Since the release of the book I have had some companies buy
“101 Ways to Get You’re your Foot in the Door” in large
quantities. Because Maxwell Publishing is my company and the
book was published through Maxwell, I have the flexibility
to do special runs. With a minimum purchase a client can add
their logo to the front cover of the book and a personalized
letter from whomever they choose included in the book. This
is a great marketing tool for them with long-term benefits
to their employees or customers.

Granted, myself and one of the other authors are
professional speakers so presenting at an event such as I
outlined is a part of our marketing model. However, two of
the authors are not professional speakers per say. Yet, in
their everyday business they do present frequently. However,
with this event, it was a different type of presentation for
them. They will be the first to admit that additional
exposure and sales were worth doing this type of

Regardless of your topic the model we implemented can be
used by virtually anyone. For example, if you have a book on
nutrition, find a health food store who wants more foot
traffic and visibility. They may be a perfect fit as a
sponsor. Not only can they help you to offset costs they can
help to promote the event. At the seminar you can promote
their products with coupons, mentions and information
provided. It’s a win/win.

If you have a book on real estate sales there’s bound to be
a mortgage company who may be interested in sponsoring you.
Perhaps they would be willing to buy a book for every real
estate agent who does business with them. Or, they could
give a book to each of their mortgage brokers.

If you have a book on childhood development, what about a
baby clothing store? Perhaps the store would cross promote
and give a book to each customer who buys a minimum amount
of product in their store. This adds value from them to
their customers and creates a win/win for you and the store.

In today’s world of writing, marketing and publishing a
book, the possibilities are only limited by imagination.

Meditation can improve your health, increase energy levelsCB102417
and maximize your enjoyment of life. Without a doubt, more
people would benefit from meditation if they took the time
to practice the simple exercises used to calm the mind,
reduce stress and increase energy levels.

So What Is Meditation?

Meditation is a way to transform and heal ourselves. When we
meditate, we allow the swirl of ideas and thoughts to slow
down to the point where we find a calm and positive
connection with ourselves. Although there are many different
ways to meditate, all styles teach the directing of the
attention in order to re-connect with the part of yourself
that is most real and most true.

Why We Need To Meditate

Unfortunately, we do not walk through the world as children
do. We all face difficult and stressful situations
throughout the course of life. But rather than beginning
each day afresh, we tend to gather the world and carry the
negativity of the past with us. The happy and contented
person you were becomes covered over by these emotions.
Suddenly you feel unhappy and dissatisfied, and even worse;
often the process is so subtle, you don’t know why.

Meditation is a way of cutting through those layers of past
emotion and excessive thinking. Instead of our minds and
bodies being at the mercy of life, we take back control. We
focus the attention in a deliberate way, and slowly see the
false layers of ourselves begin to dissolve as we return
once again to the source of our happiness.

Although meditation is an ancient art dating back thousands
of years, modern scientific research now confirms what
ancient wisdom discovered long ago. Study after study shows
that meditation brings about improved perception, focus,
memory and creativity. Regular meditators are healthier,
happier, more relaxed, and more productive.

The True Purpose of Meditation

The seductive appeal of mystic visions, psychic intuition
and heightened mental functioning can be very alluring.
While some meditators report esoteric experiences, the
experiences themselves should not be the primary reason for

The purpose of meditation is to transform the state of our
hearts and minds and bring us back to ourselves. As we
become healthier, happier and realize greater self-
awareness, more benefits begin to follow naturally —
improved mental functioning, greater intuition as well as
greater access to unconscious resources and abilities.

The Best Style of Meditation

Always keep an open mind in your learning. Never accept a
teaching without verifying the truth of it in your own
experience. On the other hand, reserve making judgment in
advance of having the experience for yourself.

The best style of meditation is the one that feels right for
you. There are many different systems of meditation
including, but not limited to Concentration, Mindfulness,
Zen, Visualization and Devotion. You may decide to
experiment with a few different styles and see how they
feel. Find one or two styles that you like and then major in
those. Above all, pay attention to your self and make sure
your meditation feels right for you.

Make Meditation A Daily Practice

You can be stronger in your self. You can be happier, more
balanced and compassionate. You can manifest the changes you
truly want to see in your life through meditation. You don’t
need to give up all your worldly passions or retreat to a
Himalayan monastery either!

A daily ten-minute practice can make all the difference.
It’s not much time to dedicate when you consider all the
time spent caring for your physical appearance. After all,
you wouldn’t go out to an important meeting or social
occasion without clean clothes and brushing your teeth.

What about the mind and body — the instruments through
which we perceive and interact with reality? Does it not
make sense to take the time to clean up our attitude and the
way we feel as well?

Matt Clarkson has created a no cost e-course teaching simple
meditation exercises for busy people. Each “Daily
Meditation” is an exercise, inspirational message or tip to
help you calm the mind and reduce stress. If your health is
