Deck Chosen: Osho Zen
Card Chosen: 5 – The Outsider – Rainbows: The Physical
Traditional Meaning: The small child in this card is standing on one side of a gate looking through it. He is so small, and so convinced that he cannot get through, he cannot see that the chain holding the gate is not locked; all he has to do is open it.
If you are feeling like an outsider – it is not bad, yet good. It is the transitory period. Now you have to be alert not to fill yourself with pain and misery. Be strong and stand on your feet. The only way to be connected with existence is to go inwards, because there at the centre you are still connected.
Intuitive Meaning: As we stand on one side of the gate to the world – whether it be on the inside, or the outside, we still are looking toward something that seems beyond our reach. We perceive the obstacles that are not necessarily there, even though they may appear that way. So we stay, instead of taking the opportunity to simply open the unlocked gate, enter into the unknown and explore further. Today is the time to open that gate, and walk through. Be happy and feel the freedom of exploring another side to your world that you perceived to be blocked from you.
Official Meaning: The Master in Zen is not a master of others, yet a master of himself. His every gesture and his every word reflect his enlightened state. He has no private goals, no desire that anything should be other than the way it is. His disciples gather around him, not to follow him, rather to soak up his presence and be inspired by his example. In his eyes, they find their own truth reflected, and in his silence, they fall more easily into the silence of their own beings.
The Master welcomes his disciples, not because he wants to lead them, but because he has so much to share. Together they create an energy field that supports each unique individual in finding his or her own light.
Beyond Mind, there is an awareness that is intrinsic, that is not given to you by the outside, and is not an idea – and there is no experiment up to now that has found any center in the brain which corresponds awareness. The whole work of meditation is to make you aware of all that is “mind” and dis-identify yourself from it. That very separation is the greatest revolution that can happen to man.
Intuitive Meaning: The Master is full of wisdom, truth, and true meaning – or knowledge. He is the very epitome of the ancient, tranquility that does not need to impress, yet inspires the consciousness to profound understanding of The Universe and all that there is. He is simply here – in the NOW that is. He is all knowing, all seeing, and all hearing. It is the little nuances that happen in life which are nurtured and grown within him, to inspire to others their aspirations of life. I am The Master.
We love to be pampered, to feel relaxed, and taken care of. Who doesn’t?
Here, at Spiritual Beauty it is considered a necessity. One of those acts which is deserved of tender loving care, commonly known as tlc. So when you come to see us, we sit you down in a nice comfortable chair, put your feet up, so that you can lay back and relax.
We discuss what it is that you are looking for – what kind of treatment would you prefer for the day. Then, we slip on some gentle meditation background music and allow you to relax even more.
Perhaps you would like a healing Reiki treatment for something specific. Or an all over Reiki treatment for the loving joy of feeling the energy come from without to within.
Why not come and relax to a soothing hand and foot ex-foliation scrub and balm. Allow your senses to unwind, with gentle massage, luxuriating in a peaceful atmosphere.
It is all up to you – to stay as you are, or to come for a pick me up. Sorry, these pampering treatments cannot be given over the phone, or internet. However we do offer distant healing as well.
Meditation is not difficult. It is not hard work. You do not need to sit cross legged on the floor, or under the full moon and chant anything.
Meditation is about quieting your mind, relaxing it and learning to bring a smile to your face. Taking you from a negative place where you may be right now – to a happier place that brings peace and tranquillity to your mind, body and soul.
That being said, here is an example of a very simple meditation that you may feel beneficial.
We can teach you different methods of meditation that will help you to find that happy and peaceful tranquillity that you need to quiet your mind. It is very easy and once you have mastered these techniques, you will be able to work on your own at a moment’s notice anywhere, any time.
