Wilderness

Wilderness

This is a photograph I took in and around the National Parks in Banff and Jasper, Alberta. It takes in the breadth and beauty of the wilderness. The lake is pristine clear blue and the mountains are limited in the amount of snow they have on them. There is a reflection of the mountains in the water below. Finally, ]bushes up front frame the picture well and bring you into the image as if you were there.

Prince of Wales Hotel

Prince of Wales Hotel

I took this photograph looking back as we left for a ride from a boat on Waterton Lakes National Park in Alberta, Canada.

This is Prince of Wales Hotel located in Waterton. According to Wikipedia, “The Prince of Wales Hotel was designed by, and was built for the Great Northern Railway company. The hotel is presently managed by the Pursuit Collection.”

Further, it was opened in July 1927 and is 121 feet tall or 35 metres with seven floors. We had the opportunity to have supper.

Jagged Mountain Tops

Jagged Mountain Tops

These are beautifully sculpted and jagged mountain tops. The sun is coming from the left side and embellishing the mountains with its hue. There is some vegetation growth up the sides and although it was summer, there is snow high up towards its peaks.

Here is an image of free range buffalo or bison in the Wild West of Canada. They are roaming freely across the grassy foothills of the mountains. It is part of the Bison Paddock Road in Waterton Lakes National Park. I like the way the scenery is composed by nature.

Book Review: The Big Book of Angel Tarot

Big Book of Angel Tarot

Big Book of Angel Tarot

Book: “The Big Book of Angel Tarot: The Essential Guide to Symbols, Spreads and Accurate Readings” by Doreen Virtue and Radleigh Valentine

Book Review by Mary Mikawoz

This book is compendium of information that goes along with the Angel Tarot Card Deck. The beginning of the book, reviews the history of tarot and how this deck compares to the traditional Rider-Waite deck. These cards are positive in nature while still dealing with events in a person’s life that may be perceived as negative or difficult to deal with. For this reason, the cards do not have a reverse meaning. If the cards are upside down, you simply put them the right direction and read the reading based on what has been written symbolically, according to the picture itself and based on both angel numbers and astrology.

The Major Arcana is now the Dreamer’s Journey. You follow him/her as they progress through life until you reach the World along with Archangel Michael. Each Major Arcana card has an Archangel attached to it which gives you further information as to how the card works in the spread or reading.

The Minor Arcana has pip cards which are the numbered cards and the court cards which include the Page, the Knight, The Queen and the King. The Ace starts off each suit. The suits have been changed to Fire, Water, Air and Earth.

The Fire has dragons and wands in it, Water has cups in it plus merpeople, Air has unicorns in it (swords in previous tarot decks) and Earth has fairies and gold coins in it.

I studied this book by having physically organized my cards according to the Major Arcana and Minor Arcana in the order they are presented in the book. Then it took time, however, I studied the card, then read the reading, reflected on the card some more and paused to think about it all. Then, I proceeded to the next card. In time, the whole deck and book were finished.

My head is now full of imagery, stories and symbolism. It is an appropriate book to have as a reference guide to go along with the Angel Tarot Cards. The little guide book that comes with the deck are good for basic information and then this big book gives you far more detail. This deck obviously took into consideration a lot of factors.

I was not financially compensated for this post. I received the book from Hay House for review purposes. The opinions are completely my own based on my experience.

Blue Mountains

Blue skies, blue mountains, blue borders it all.  These are the incredible Rocky Mountains found in Alberta and British Columbia, Canada.  They are stoic and ever-lasting in their beauty as they grace the Canadian landscape.  Wisps of gentle white clouds linger along the mountain peaks.  At the base you can see the coniferous trees growing and yet on top you see the white snow and ice.  I hope you enjoy this image as much as I enjoyed being in their presence and taking their photographs.
