II The Lady of the Lake

Mistress of the Inner Realms, keeper of the door to the Otherworld. The Lady belongs to that world more than this, and when we come to her, she may grant us some of its knowledge.

What wisdom is available within you?

The Lady of the Lake gives glimpses of the world beyond, the world of wonder. She shows roads into the realm of possibility. She reveals each person’s path into the world of mystery. In the empty pages of her book, each seeker reads what he or she most needs to know. Her basket is the cradle of possibility. Set your wishes adrift upon the Lake, and they will take flight with the cranes.

Look upon the Lake. What do you see?

The Lady is the mystery in all things. She is the potential at the heart of us. If we follow the voice of our longing, she will bring us the the joy of being the answer.

What longing calls you?

She offers an invitation to go deeper, to look further, to expand. She inspires people to reach for the ground of their existence and for the stars of their potential. She cuts us open and leaves us vulnerable to Spirit. She sees through to what really matters.

The Lady of the Lake awakens our inner wisdom at Candlemas. She is Bride.

    I have learned much from this site. Is there a newer companion book that I can purchase for the Hallowquest Tarot course

    Thank you, Marcelino.
    I just checked the website of John and CaitlĂ­n Matthews, http://www.hallowquest.org.uk, but I can’t see any companion books currently in print. You might be able to find them second hand via amazon.
    The meditations on this web site are the result of work I did with the cards on my own. I would sit with the card and write down the first thoughts that came to mind. They I would do a shamanic journey (pathworking) into the card to experience the landscape or communicate with the people. Next, I would actually do a tarot reading to help me get closer to the meaning of a particular card. What you read here is a synthesis of all that work.
    You could easily do something similar yourself. The tarot is already a book of wisdom. You don’t need another book to unlock your own inner knowing.
    I wish you many insightful journeys with the cards.
