I recently got Leonie Dawson’s 2013 Create Your Incredible Year Workbook & Calendar. I am pretty new to the whole workbook thing, but right away I was having a blast with it. I was only a few pages into the workbook when I got inspired to create my own Tarot/Oracle card workbook for 2013. I share some of the pages I have created in the video below:
I have been making my own Tarot workbook for almost two weeks now and so far I have created many, many pages! Some of the pages are pretty hideous and probably won’t be included in my final copy, but overall I am really happy with how its turning out. And I had forgotten how much I love to just draw for hours!
Lately I have been getting a lot of guidance (through my meditations) to bring more fun and joy into my work with Tarot. This caught me off guard because I don’t really think of myself as a “fun” kind of person, but as soon as I started aligning with that energy, I began to get flooded with ideas for Tarot related articles, Tarot spreads, e-books, courses, guided meditations, and more. So I have decided to let joy, creativity and fun guide me in everything I create from now on….
A lady commenting on the above video mentioned “bringing out the play in Tarot” and I thought “YES! that is exactly what I want to do.”
And I think that is why my experience with Leonie Dawson’s workbook has been so inspiring for me – because it makes goal setting fun. After working with her workbook for a couple weeks I feel so incredibly excited and inspired about 2013, which is a stark contrast to how I felt at this time last year (not excited at all – and kind of dreading 2012). So I really wish I had known about this workbook last year!
*disclaimer: I am an affiliate for Leonie’s workbook, but I am promoting it simply because I love working with it and think its an awesome product! Her workbook also comes with a lovely calendar, which I haven’t printed out just yet.
So my goal is to create a similar product – a 2013 workbook/journal – that incorporates the use of Tarot and Oracle cards. So I would love to hear your thoughts on workbooks – have you used them in the past? Have you found them helpful? What do you like most about them?
