No Coincidence

No Coincidence 
I first discovered my ability to discern meaning from the metaphors of Oracle Cards in 1986. I genuinely don’t understand where 33 years have gone.
Before that, I had worked with Numerology and the I Ching Coin Oracle. While each of those is profound in its own access to insights and wisdom, neither prepared me for the immediate power of the cards.
The first deck I was given was The Way of Cartouche Cards, created by Martin Jones and Murry Hope. It was a small deck, only 25 ...

Growing

Growing 

My upcoming Oracle Card Deck, The Wisdom of the Garden Path uses images of the Living Layer of the planet, and celebrates the cycle of life revealed through nature.
There is a section highlighting the season of Growing and these cards will show up in your reading to point to the place where your life has a growing edge.
They are coloured yellow for the sun, which is responsible for all life on the planet. The pictures are of the glorious phase of expansion among the plants featured i...

Synchronicity

Posted by Jo Leath on Tuesday, June 11, 2019, In : Synchronicity 
Synchronicity 
Online dictionaries define synchronicity as coincidence in time; contemporaneousness; and simultaneousness.
They add that in Psychoanalysis, synchronicity is the simultaneous occurrence of causally unrelated events, and the belief that the simultaneity has meaning beyond mere coincidence.
In my work, Synchronicity is this, and more, and perhaps slightly different.  
For me, simultaneity absolutely has meaning beyond coincidence, and coincidence, while not an indication of causa...

Finding Inspiration

Finding Inspiration

     In 2007, when I was newly widowed, and while I would have called my only emotion ‘ numb’ I was filled with sadness and I cried often.  I had little interest in anything beyond my small, grief-filled life.
     I had been asked to write an essay about the experience of loss, and I had agreed. It was painful and difficult. Each morning I sat down at the computer and as I re-read the screens of words I had already typed, I relived the details of what had happened, and ...

Readings

Posted by Jo Leath on Friday, August 10, 2018, In : Synchronicity 
Why Readings?

     The title of this site, and a caption on much of my work, reads “Exploring Paths to Cosmic Wisdom.”
     The idea of exploring paths is easily interpreted as a reference to labyrinths, although the line and the website were created before I was called to work with those particular paths.
     I originally intended to convey the idea that there are many ways to tap into Cosmic Wisdom, and no wrong way to access it.
     At the time I named the website, I was working with Num...

Nature

Nature Cards

Of the many card decks I use in my work, one is particularly on my mind right now, because it has disappeared from my reach.
It is hard to know whether I have misplaced it, maybe leaving it behind when I had been providing readings at a different location. I may have misfiled it when I was packing up boxes for storage, recently.
It could be in the back of a car, or under a car seat, it might even have worked its way out of my bag while I was on a city bus.

The deck is Ted Andrews...

Cards

        I am in Nanaimo BC for a few weeks, and since I arrived I have received several decks of cards that are new to me. In reading the literature that accompanies them, I have already discovered that the Akashic Tarot by Sharon Anne Klinger and Sandra Anne Taylor has a wonderful tie to a Numerology chart.

    This deck of beautiful cards has four suits that easily align with the four Planes of Expression that are found in the Numerology of a name. In Numerology, the Planes of Expres...

Nothing Without Consent

Posted by Jo Leath on Sunday, December 10, 2017, In : Synchronicity 
Nothing Without Consent
When I first began travelling around and offering readings, I thought I would be travelling and giving readings. I learnt a lot.
In those early days I encountered -- and sometimes I still do -- firmly held and mistaken beliefs about the nature of my work.
I have met people who claimed they were afraid of the idea.
"You might read my mind" they would say, and I was never comfortable enough to ask them what it was about their thoughts that created such a concern. 

For th...

Cooperative Components

Posted by Jo Leath on Wednesday, May 10, 2017, In : Synchronicity 
Cooperative Components

    I first heard the phrase Cooperative Components among the teachings of Abraham Hicks.  It is a way of understanding the interconnectedness of all things.
       When we notice a particular event or circumstance we are invited to see how the universe has cooperated to provide that experience in order for us to move towards our intentions.
    One of the simplest ways to locate a 'cooperative' message is by drawing an oracle card. When I was working in Nova Scotia, the...

Sometimes There Are No Exact Words

Sometimes There Are No Exact Words

       Vocabulary is one of the trickiest things about my life just now.
     Words are very culturally rooted, and the same word, when written for a broad audience, can sometimes be interpreted in different and entirely misleading ways.
      When I was a child in 1960s England, I had a distant relative, known to me as “auntie” who had been born in the 1880s and lived her whole life in a small region in England. For her, the word starving described a cold ...

Telling Fortunes and Obedience

Telling Fortunes and Obedience

     I recently met “Mildred,” a woman who was visibly upset by the idea of card readings. Sixty years ago, as a girl of twelve, Mildred and her adult sister visited a fairground Fortune Teller, excited about ‘knowing the future’.
     The reader had delighted them with visions of a handsome husband and a happy life, then delivered the information that one day ‘half of your children will die in a fire.’
      Even as a great-grandmother Mildred grew emo...

Accessing Synchronicity

Posted by Jo Leath on Wednesday, May 15, 2013, In : Synchronicity 

Accessing Synchronicity
     Accessing Synchronicity is a name for finding a way to connect with the wisdom that exists within.
     I believe that each of us is a spiritual being, currently experiencing the human dimension.
     Our Spiritual aspect is immortal, and can access wisdom and memories and truths that are simply too great to fit into our puny little brains.
     For our brains, however, to gain entry to that body of wisdom we need maps and methods and shortcuts.
     For some, the qui...
