Yes, You ARE Extraordinary!

We all have the extraordinary coded within us, waiting to be released.

Dear Fellow Life Journeyers,

You’re an open-hearted person who feels a magnetic pull from within that won’t leave you alone. You hear an urgent call to live a meaningful existence whose strengths contribute to a better culture and a healthier world. You’re open to receiving guidance from symbols within you (such as dreams) and around you (such as tarot).

You intuitively know that this era of uncertainty requires your unique gifts, but you wonder who you have to become in order to meet these times authentically. You sense there is more, but sometimes ask yourself if you even have a purpose.

You do!  Even though your passionate desire to catch and implement a larger vision of who you can be makes you feel like an outsider at times, you aren’t alone.

Come join a circle of like-hearted people on a magical Northwest isle to explore, call forth, and activate your life purpose.

1     2     3

  1. What am I projecting onto _______?
  2. How can I own the projection?
  3. What gift(s) can emerge when I own the projection?


Spend time with the symbols.  Let them take you deeper.  Learn, then integrate.   May every projection we take off another person or group bring us closer to love of self and each other.
