Queen of Swords — I love this card so much on many different levels for moving into 2017: I’m drawn to the energy and vibration of this card — the strong character of the woman; the glint of light on the sword and her crown indicating a relationship between spirit and form; the doves indicating peaceful interactions; the cat indicating intelligent, self-reliance; the purple and indigo colors indicating connection to intuition and the Divine. The Queen of Swords offers a mature expression; she doesn’t mince words AND communicates clearly without being devoid of emotion.
I couldn’t have picked a more appropriate card for moving into 2017.
I’m so excited about my tarot business expanding as well as expanding my vision for my Sacred Space Studio classes: Nia, Chakradance™ and Tarot Tuesdays.
Every year I receive a few words that become my guideposts for the year. In 2015, I received the words through a tarot reading from http://www.thetarotlady.com. In 2016, there were two words: “Gratitude” and “Forgiveness”. Those two words have been immense blessings this past year and will be forever in the forefront of my daily living; however, I also received seven (7) words through my own tarot reading on New Year’s Eve. My gift of words for 2017:
HEALING, INTUTION, LEADERSHIP, MYSTIQUE, POWER, STABILITY AND STRUCTURE
As I move into 2017, it is my honor to continue to teach Nia, Chakradance™, and my own creation “Tarot Tuesday”. I’d like to thank a few special folks who will continue to teach Nia at Sacred Space Studio in 2017 — to these three women I offer my heartfelt gratitude: Kate Mann, Mary Carol Rick and Kathy Rink.
This blog started out as a way to share my love for Nia — that love has expanded into a few other directions. I’ll be offering blog posts about my Chakradance™ classes and my Tarot Tuesday classes, as well as tarot card interpretations and mini tarot readings.
I’m so excited for the direction of my intention(s) for 2017!

I’m also on Facebook (Jill Campana) and I maintain two business Facebook pages: Conscious Movement Sacred Space Studio and The Nutman Company USA, Inc. And I’m on Twitter, too @tarotdancing.
Gratitude and Forgiveness are my two pillars of strength — not only gratitude and forgiveness for others but for one’s self as well.
They are, however, just words until they are represented through action(s).
I end all of my Nia classes with “Gratitude in all things, no picking and choosing and Let Love Radiate.”
The “no picking and choosing” is the hard part. Sure we can be grateful when things are going our way. Not so easy when we’re caught by surprise with no time to fully encompass the rapidly changing scenery. But through it all we can Let Love Radiate.
Love is the answer. Love is not all there is, but Love is the answer. In my experience, when I hold gratitude in one hand and forgiveness in the other — there is a balancing of the scales and in the middle weaving it all together is Love.
May we continue — and begin in some cases — to embody the peace that we say we want.
My latest accomplishment has been to receive my certification as a Chakradance™ Facilitator. I cannot express fully enough in words how grateful I am to have had this movement practice for the soul come into my life. It was quite synchronistic that I found it actually. I had noticed it several times on my Facebook newsfeed. I’ve been facilitating meditation classes for quite some time and on most occasions go through the chakras. When I taught Yoga back along the way, chakras were very much a part of my teaching. I’ve been teaching Nia for 15 years and movement of the 3 body weights in Nia (the pelvis, chest and head) activate and open the 7 chakras.
I’ve been wanting to expand the offerings at Sacred Space Studio so when I logged on to my email one morning back in April, there was a message from “Jenny” of Chakradance™ letting me know that this day was the last day to register for the Facilitator training at a reduced cost. All sorts of thoughts when through my head about not having the time or not being sure if this was exactly what I was looking for, yadda yadda yadda. You know the drill. But my intuition was much more open and willing than my mind, so I went for it. And W.O.W. am I ever delighted that I followed my intuition.
The feedback I’ve received from the several one hour and 15 minutes classes I’ve taught has been encouraging and enlightening. I finished my first of seven Workshops this past Sunday — starting with the Base Chakra — and the feedback from this workshop confirmed even further that I had made the right choice.
Spontaneous dance, specific music, creative visualizations and imagery, along with the wonderful Mandala-creating exercise contained in the classes and the workshops invites the participants to go way down deep. It’s transformational. It’s healing. It’s truly a movement practice for the soul.
It is my pleasure to be offering Nia classes, Reiki classes and therapy sessions, Chakradance™ classes and workshops, Tarot readings and meditation classes at Sacred Space Studio. If you find yourself compelled toward any of these offerings, please feel free to contact me. You can find my contact information on the “About” page.
I’ve come to the conclusion that this banquet of sensations that are roiling about in my body, mind and heart are my spirit’s invitation to expand…to be more of who I say I am…to stop hiding my greatness. All of my astrological charts, my Tarot readings, and in particular my own intuition, are pointing to “expansion”.
I had a phenomenal phone conversation with a good friend the other day. Expansion became the topic. Of particular interest was what is happening currently in my life that is allowing for this expansion and what obstacles or issues have kept me from experiencing it up to now.
Interestingly enough, through just a bit of prompting from my friend, I was able to pretty much pinpoint an event that occurred where I was able to release a long-held belief/judgment that instantly created the sensation of breathing deeply, expanding my heart realm, opening my…
The words “Stay identified with the irresistible force” were in my dreams last night…all night.
What is the irresistible force? Spirit in Action. Love in Action. Integrity in Action.
The Irresistible Force is the total opposite of what is being portrayed in the world today with all of the violence and killing. Humanity at its worst. If you have nothing else with which to identify then it’s very easy to get caught up in this chaos and destruction.
There is a choice to be made. Stay identified with the Irresistible Force or find yourself dealing with the consequences of not doing so.
The world’s ways are not my ways. Rise up my love, my fair one and come away.
