Plate of Inspiration (28/11) – Illumination and Opportunity

Plate of Inspiration - Illumination
Ooh, this week’s Plate of Inspiration formed into something kinda cool around illumination and opportunity, as I work on bringing my passion project to fruition!

The Ace of Wands: Illumination card from the Voyager Tarot Deck symbolises a vision, a revelation; a flash of insight. The hands means you have touched upon a truth.

Illumination is a torch of revolution and purification. Revelations inevitably produce changes, the burning up of old patterns, characteristics and circumstances. You hold in your hands the light, the power to illuminate and thus transform and energise.

The white Opportunity mandala stone from The Fifth Element Life symbolises the many movements forward that can be taken from one starting point. This stone can be about seizing the day; about creating a big opportunity regardless of whether one exists or not. I love these Sacred Symbol Stones! I received them this week, and they’re like a mini combination of tarot cards and runes, all individually designed by the talented Sarah Wilder.

Clear quartz and kyanite shards help to slice through confusion and dispel blockages, while increasing the capacity for logical and linear thought and stimulating the higher mind.

Iolite (the two dark blue/purpley stones on the bottom corners of the card) is a vision stone, which helps to stimulate the connection to inner knowing and express your true self – freed from the expectations of those around you.

Perfect Potion’s Insight Third Eye blend, with myrtle, clary sage and rosemary essential oils, is making it all smell delicious!

And finally, this gorgeous plate comes from a little shop in Bratislava’s old town – I picked it up on my travels about 8 years ago. I’d have bought the entire shop home with me if luggage restrictions didn’t exist….

I wish you a wonderful weekend xx
