Life can become complicated at times, necessitating a diversion from our difficulties. Jean Bakula found hers when she mastered the reading of Tarot cards. The Rider-Waite Tarot is fascinating because there is a card which illustrates each kind of circumstance found during life. The Major Arcana cards represent serious issues: family relationships, education, religion, love, strength, fear, addictions, sex, death, balance, health, personal growth, and redemption. The Minor Arcana cards depict everyday dealings: home life, work, money, hobbies, comfort issues, and the people we frequently encounter. Pathways Through Spirituality describes what Jean Bakula sees in the cards and paints vivid word pictures. The poetry for each card can be used to learn to read the Tarot, but each piece stands on its own as well. These pieces can assist readers in meditation on confusing experiences and decisions they face. Some believe the Tarot is only a fortune telling device, but it urges introspection and promotes honest reflections on our actions. This book can help readers view their problems and strengths more clearly, and help them uncover their deeper motivations and potentials. The answers to your questions are already there. All you need to do is trust your own intuition!

With the help of a spiritual writer who reflects on this theme, the reader is guided into ways of thinking, praying and growing through the struggles we face.

Everyone is not at the same level of intellectual or spiritual development. In order to assist the Creator, Soul, a product of God, needs co-worker training, largely experiential, that separates knowledge from belief. Since 1965, three pathways, with subsets of elementary, intermediate, and advanced components, surfaced that can potentially take one to specific levels of God’s kingdoms. These pathways are the Intellectual, Psychic, and Spiritual (Eckankar, or Advanced religion). Instructors teach dream travel, Soul Travel, karma, reincarnation by which a current illness can be anchored to the past, mind passions, and development of the spiritual senses. An experiment given allows testing of the hypothesis that access to God’s kingdoms is from within, and not from without.

Drawing on examples from the miracles of Jesus to the plays of Shakespeare, Francis Schaeffer to Eubie Blake, Copernican astronomy to the 1973 oil embargo, this wide-ranging narrative has a relaxed, friendly style. Yet it equips readers to develop their own spirituality with clarity and confidence.

Research indicates that women use alternative health treatments more than men (National Health Statistics Report [NHSR], 2008). However, it is unclear how these types of interventions improve women's lives. This research examined pathways to positive change among women in a holistic life improvement course offered by an alternative treatment setting, Shakti Rising. Participants were 218 women assessed at baseline and completion of an 8-week intervention designed to increase spiritual involvement and personal awareness through meditation, group discussion, journaling and meaning-making activities. Multiple regression analyses were used to explore the mediational role that changes in optimism played in the relation between changes in spirituality and self-esteem. Spirituality, optimism, and self-esteem increased significantly over the course of the 8-week intervention. Increases in optimism fully mediated the relation between increases in spirituality and increases in self-esteem. These results indicate that one possible pathway to improved self-esteem for women is via spirituality and optimism.

Sacred Pathways reveals nine distinct spiritual temperaments--and their strengths, weaknesses, and tendencies--to help you improve your spiritual life and deepen your personal walk with God. It's time to strip away the frustration of a one-size-fits-all spirituality and discover a path of worship that frees you to be you. Experienced spiritual directors, pastors, and church leaders recognize that all of us engage with God differently, and it's about time we do too. In this updated and expanded edition of Sacred Pathways, Gary Thomas details nine spiritual temperaments and--like the Enneagram and other tools do with personality--encourages you to investigate the ways you most naturally express yourself in your relationship with God. He encourages you to dig into the traits, strengths, and pitfalls in your devotional approach so you can eliminate the barriers that keep you locked into rigid methods of worship and praise. Plus, as you begin to identify and understand your own temperament, you'll soon learn about the temperaments that aren’t necessarily "you" but that may help you understand the spiritual tendencies of friends, family, and others around you. Whatever temperament or blend of temperaments best describes you, rest assured it's not by accident. It's by the design of a Creator who knew what he was doing when he made you according to his own unique intentions. If your spiritual walk is not what you'd like it to be, you can change that, starting here. Sacred Pathways will show you the route you were made to travel, marked by growth and filled with the riches of a close walk with God.
