5. The Hierophant

The Hierophant can be seen as bridging heaven and earth.  Interpreter of the Cosmic vision, the Hierophant ushers initiates into their own higher knowing, teaching and bringing structure to the incomprehensible for the human mind. Here on the journey we turn to our teachers within and without as we struggle to understand and bring forth our purpose.

Key Words: Enlightened teacher/ Channeling/ Organized spirituality

Donvieve          The Hierophant

“When I was eight I remember my aunt reading my fortune with her cards, backed with red and black emblems. I remember her turning up queens of hearts and diamonds, beautiful faces with ominous looks, the ace of spades and those kings looking very stately. I wondered, what do they represent? To this day I enjoy listening to my intuition while looking at the Tarot cards. When the Hierophant chose me, this poem came to me.

            Awake sleeping one

            Dawn is the time
                                                   Center your being
            Trust intuition                       
            Follow your inner child’s curiosity

    Walk the spiritual/mystical path

            Using practical feet.

These thoughts have inspired my design of my Hierophant card.
Standing in a yoga pose called vrksasana, the tree pose, balancing on one foot on top of the lotus flower, I stand serene and balanced in the midst of my life’s challenges.  The meaning of yoga is union, the union of body, mind and spiritual awareness.  I realize that though I play a small part in the major play of life, when I join forces in cooperative alignment with others, my Hierophant sends out golden rays of sharing, good will and love. The key to finding happiness is to do all I can to uplift the lives of others.”
