by Charles Crawshaw Self Improvement, Communications, Reference and Education, Writing and Speaking

When ‘Earth” landed in front of me today, I smiled twice: 1.    I felt ‘grounded and happy’ 2.    What on earth can I write to tie “earth” with a world of transformation?

BELIEVE: Accept that something is True 35 of 65

by Charles Crawshaw Self Improvement, Communications, Reference and Education, Writing and Speaking
Aaah, this happiness card (see below) makes sense, if one is consulting the oracle cards.
