Tools of Empowerment

I have a small table under the window by my desk. I have several things sitting on it, within reach. They are all what I call tools of empowerment – things that I can use to help make a decision, calm my mind, or bring a small moment of joy into my day. One of these things (at least for the month of October) is a deck of divination cards called “The Halloween Tarot” (by Kipling West). It is a lovely, non-threatening deck that I can use for myself and others.

Another deck that I have sitting out is “The Field Guide To Garden Dragons” (Arwen Lynch, author; Stanley Morrison, artist). Thisis a lovely, gentle, user-friendly deck that carries its own message, but that can also be used in conjunction with other decks.

Another item that I have sitting on this table, and this is an item that I have had for many years, is the book “The Seven Spiritual Laws of Success” (by Deepak Chopra). I have always admired Mr. Chopra’s work, and have found this small but powerful book to be a very good resource for grounding and centering myself.

How do you empower yourself? Do you put your tools of empowerment where you can easily find and use them? This is probably the very best way that we have of nurturing ourselves!
