Learning Lenormand: Question and Answers

The following questions were submitted by various individuals.  Below each one is my answer.

What type of questions is best answered using the Lenormand-method? Where are its limits? (Narkaios Alepou)

The petit-Lenormand, in terms of the traditional method, is an objective and descriptive system of relating an answer   It’ll describe to you: what will or won’t happen in a question or a situationIt’s who, what, where, when.  Each of the symbols relate to an illustrative trigger of an external event i.e. physical sickness or financial loss (Coffin), external change (Storks), fame (Moon).  When they come together they give a sentence about that question which context allows to become an answer.

Thus it’s best used to discern verifiable answers, events, and consequence: does X love me, will I get the job, what will improve my finances, if I do X…

Hi everyone!

Today is one of those days that I am at home snuggled up in my warmest blanket, sipping a cup of tea. It is so cold out that local schools have canceled. I look forward to the time when I can move to a place that has hardly any snow, and stays warm the majority of the year. But for now, I find myself busy with all sorts of different projects that keep my mind creative. This years big project for me is a Tarot Deck. I have always wanted to make one but have felt very intimidated by it. I am 36 years old and have let so many good ideas go to the way side out of fear of failing or being judged by others. But the last couple of years I have made a vow to myself to put my thoughts into motion. By doing this, I have felt so much better about who I am as a person. It is a bit liberating to put your best foot forward and have a receptive audience of people that you have never met before. I encourage everyone to put aside your, “negative self talk” and do the same. It adds a whole new dimension to life, and brings to you many blessings and self love.

With that said, the above is a sample of the deck that I will be releasing into the world this year. I am very proud of it, and the colors really speak to me. I have been reading cards for over twenty years, and have a collection of many. Each deck is full of its own personality and character. One of my biggest challenges though, is finding a name for my deck. I never dreamed it would be so difficult for me. I thought that I’d ask for your help. If I pick your title for my deck, I will bless you with a signed copy free of charge. So if anyone has any ideas, please comment and let me know. I look forward to reading them!

Blessed Be!

Francis

For the last six months, Catholic cardinals, bishops and theologians have been deliberating in Vatican City, discussing the future of the church and redefining long-held Catholic doctrines and dogmas. The Third Vatican Council, is undoubtedly the largest and most important since the Second Vatican Council was concluded in 1962. Pope Francis convened the new council to “finally finish the work of the Second Vatican Council.” While some traditionalists and conservative reactionaries on the far right have decried these efforts, they have delighted progressives around the world.

The Third Vatican Council concluded today with Pope Francis announcing that Catholicism is now a “modern and reasonable religion, which has undergone evolutionary changes. The time has come to abandon all intolerance. We must recognize that religious truth evolves and changes. Truth is not absolute or set in stone. Even atheists acknowledge the divine. Through acts of love and charity the atheist acknowledges God…

R.I.P Nelson Mandela (1918-2013)


Something I wrote in 1998 for Nelson Mandela. Hamba kahle, Tata Madiba.

In the Land of his birth and destiny
an ordinary man was fighting to be free
from segregation
of the black nation, for humanity.
He was the symbol of justice in white courts
the paradigm of freedom for this he had fought
he would not bend
until the end, was what he taught.

The strength of this cause would see him through
the aspirations of his people was enough, he knew,
to fill his soul
while in the gaol. The time was due.
The father of the nation when at last released,
his people adored him, their self-esteem increased
and he was proud
to hear the crowd sing out aloud.

Here my children is the land of our birth
which was gone for too long,
yet, with courage, faith and song
we have won.
Thus with pride and dignity and worth
we can honour this land
for together we must stand,
no longer banned,
sing with pride and merriment and mirth.

Hate not your enemies, is what he told to all,
for they too were prisoners inside their very soul
and now are free,
like you and me, our common goal.
We’ll cultivate a nation of which we can be proud
the voices of our people will all sing out aloud
and start anew
this is our cue, this is the hour.

Our valleys will echo the voices of all man
our dreams will be carried on the wind across the sand,
for we are free
with dignity, in this our land.
African children, people of all tribes,
we have taken back our country and taken back our lives
so with respect
we shall protect, grow and thrive.

Here my children is the land of our birth
which was gone for too long
yet with courage, faith and song
we have won.
Thus with pride and dignity and worth
we can honour this land
for together we must stand
no longer banned.
Sing with pride and merriment and mirth.

We’ll educate our children, off the land they’ll feed,
we’ll honour our country and never let it bleed,
for it is here
in Africa that we are freed.
