Making mundane moments magical 

One of the biggest things I want you to know is that no one is perfect. We all have days when we feel crappy, we all doubt our own abilities and often find ourselves overwhelmed or disheartened by our inability to live up to own expectations. 

Come with me and together we walk the path of learning and growing, discovering how to work with and  honour the internal struggle we all experience as we try to balance the many shades of our emotional lives, and find our own peace and connection internally and externally.

<p>Life is crazy sometimes. The natural cycles of birth and death are everywhere, there is an honesty and a harshness to it which we can always rely on, even though the process may be painful.<br/>
As a Nature reading instructor, I empower people with the tools and skills needed to use Nature as an Oracle. <br/>
Nature is beautiful, powerful, chaotic, inspiring, insightful, fragile, powerful and predictable. <br/>
There are natural cycles that we can work with, that offer solitude and familiarity,  just as much as we can be assured of turbulence, chaos and the unexpected. <br/>
By learning to look to our environment, as an outer reflection of or inner world, we can learn to work with the cycles and creative energies along side the choas for growth, transformation, change and to better understand ourselves and our own influence on the energy of the  environment we are living in. <br/>
Stop for a moment.<br/>
Still yourself, close your eyes. <br/>
Listen,  but not just with your ears but with your heart.. what do you hear?<br/>
Breathe deeply or the air around you, what do you smell?<br/>
What do you feel? <br/>
Is the air still? <br/>
When you open your eyes, what do you see? <br/>

<p>Today’s card is SEA TURTLE <br/>
Sea turtles are associated with travel, both interstate and overseas. Because Sea turtles live so long they also represent the knowledge gained through life experiences, not only with in this lifetime, but also the knowledge and  information imprinted from our ancestors at birth . <br/>
Sea turtles travel far pushed along on the oceans currents but they will always return to the place they were hatched to lay their eggs and their children will do the same. It is because of this that they are also linked to family and home. <br/>
Take heart in knowing that not all choices are yours to make. Sometimes energies are at work that are greater than you and sometimes it is wise to surrender to the pull or push of our inner journey. #dreamtimereadingcards #laurabowen #laurabowenart #animalmessengers #spiritwakes #naturereading #naturereading101 #spiritwakesacademy #onlineclasses #naturecourses #seaturtle #oraclecards #oraclereading</p>

<p>Today’s card from my Saltwater reading cards is OYSTER - which is all about investment.  The weeks, months and even years that it takes sometimes to watch your investment come to fruitation. This card can symbolise relationships that have the potential to turn into a life long partnership if both parties are willing to really invest in each other as well as often symbolising financial and business opportunities that have true potential but only if you are able to really invest your time and money into growing something that will take a while before you will see any return. The oyster is a reminder that true reward comes after hard work and effort and that we need to invest ourselves both emotionally and physically, our time and yes even money and resources,  in order to see the promise of reward. This is not a card of easy pay outs or quick fixes. It can take years of dedication, hard work, lots of resources, time, commitment, honesty, vulnerability and  many failures before our investments matures. This can apply to  business, finances or personal relationships. All of which will only offer returns  if you have done the work required both outwardly and within. The oyster promises that the return will be worth it.  #saltwaterreadingcards #saltwater #oyster #laurabowen #Australian  #readingcards #oraclecards #nature #naturereading</p>

<p>Today I felt like I needed some guidance. Two cards fell out while I was shuffling Luxury and Enchantment. Which seems to come with a strong message to stop taking life so seriously, play, be creative, connect again with nature and be reminded of just how much magic we take for granted in our daily lives. With so much of this year being about focusing on study, I have forgotten how much my soul need art, creativity or any way to express the many emotions I feel in any particular minute.
