Tarot Gardening – The Beckoning Spiritual Shop

The outside of ones spiritual shop beckons to cars or strollers in the area of who you are, what they may expect inside the shop and how they will be treated once inside. A plain uninteresting entrance or yard represents mediocreship. A fascinating and eye appealing entrance is remembered and offers a clue of the individuality and care the light worker inside will give. To create an inviting spiritual entrance a few elements of sight, sound and balance should be considered.

  • Sculpture that depicts ones life mission {Art}
  • Chimes that speak the voice of your spirit {Sound}
  • Floral and herbs {Color and Scent}
  • Feng Shui energy principles {Balance}
  • Tarot or spiritual communication tools {Spirit}

We all understand that the way we take care of our body greatly influences our health and attitude. In this same way, years of historical experiences occurring on a piece of land takes its toll on the growth of foliage and the energetic way we feel when we are standing on it. For this reason I suggest the first thing to do when planning a spiritual entrance or shop yard It really does not matter what tool you use to get to know your garden spirit. Whether you arrange a spiritual gathering alone or with a group of light workers that combine their gifts with Tarot, Runes, Crystals or pure Channeling, here are some questions to ask your garden spirit.


  • Who are you? What do you want us to know about you?
  • Are you male, female or animal?
  • How do you want to be remembered?
  • How can we best honor you?

If the answers you receive are positive it will give you an idea of the kind of entrance you may want to design, or whether to have an energetic cleansing first. Remember that land spirit has been here much longer then you have been and it is always a good idea to honor history. Harmonizing with your land spirit increases the potential for happiness, success, friends and profit.

If the reading on the land indicates much sadness, anger or despair you would be wise to perform a clearing with sage, drums and bells. Think of the ancient Native Americans and the bond with the land they held sacred. In this same way, so should you honor the land your shop sits on by releasing its blocked, stagnant historical pressure. You may do this ceremony alone, or hire someone else to lead. It would be wise to be present as the clearing is taking place.


What is your personal life mission? How did the reading on your land resonate with your goal? Choose an aesthetically pleasing symbol of what you and your garden spirit stand for as Light Workers. You may also, instead of a sculpture, choose a pleasing bench or swing for friends to sit on, a kinetic wind wheel, or a garden gate entrance into your realm.


The sound of your wind chimes represents your voice. Be cautious of representing your self through out of tune, clanging noise. If you must have more then one set of chimes, make sure they harmonize like a choir. The sound of bamboo is a subtle voice that can harmonize with metal, ceramic or glass wind chimes.

For sunny shop entrances, plant an herbal pathway to your door and fill window boxes with lovely scented flowers or herbs. Envelop your clients and visitors in the sweet aroma of Basil, Lavender or Thyme. All pathways should be free of clutter for energy to flow in and out of your shop. There is nothing quite as evasive to clients as the smell of cigarettes or kitty boxes as they walk in a home based business. Living with bad smells gives the impression you may live with bad patterns, an indication you do not walk your talk as a spiritual light worker. Your “persona” and “representation” is marketed through your entrance or yard and is the inspiration for people driving or walking by your beckoning spiritual shop.

A Garden Centre Christmas Is A Great Day Out!

Christmas is a magical time of year with people brightening up their homes and gardens to make the most of the festive season, so it makes sense that centres across the UK are turning themselves into spell-binding places for a garden centre Christmas. People can combine their shopping trips for festive decorations and Christmas trees with delicious Christmas meals for the whole family and even visits to Father Christmas!

In this article, we look at why garden centres are such great locations for a Christmas family day out, and what kind of activities you can expect at your typical centre. Every centre is different though, so make sure you call ahead or check their website to avoid disappointment.

Father Christmas Is Coming Soon To A Centre Near You!

You don’t need to go to the North Pole to experience a Winter Wonderland, as one is most likely coming to a centre near you!

Garden centres know that Christmas shopping – whether it is for gifts or decorations – can be a stressful experience. Choosing between organising a babysitter and bringing easily distracted children on a shopping trip isn’t an easy decision for parents to make. That’s why they have started to create Winter Wonderlands of their own for a truly ‘garden centre Christmas’: to keep children entertained and on their best behaviour as the whole family shops for their Christmas trees and decorations.

At some of the bigger centres, teams of cheeky elves and furry friends will be there to entertain the family from start to finish as you journey to Father Christmas’ grotto, and every child will receive a gift to keep them smiling all the way home. At other centres, you’ll probably find similarly themed but smaller departments where Father Christmas will be sat ready to welcome every child who comes to the centre.

You should have the opportunity to book a slot with Father Christmas in advance at some garden centre Christmas Wonderlands; at others you can probably just drop in. Once again, it’s recommended you call ahead or visit the centres website to find out what services they offer.

Getting the whole family involved in a Christmas family activity is the best way to bond in the run up to the big day. A visit to a garden centre can get two jobs done at once! While mum and dad are getting the shopping done, the children get to enjoy a magical experience meeting Father Christmas.

Why Have Christmas Dinner At A Garden Centre?

If once a year isn’t enough for your fill of Christmas Dinner, check in with your local centre; many of the larger ones across the UK now offer catering facilities like cafes and restaurants, and you’ll find that most will have a menu to suit a garden centre Christmas.

There are many reasons why it’s a good idea to have Christmas dinner at a garden centre. First, they’ll have access to lots of fresh ingredients making it a delicious meal. Secondly, shopping for Christmas trees, seasonal plants and decorations can be hungry and thirsty work, so why not keep the Christmas spirit alive with a festive sit-down meal? There’s nothing quite like it for making you feel all warm inside and in the mood for Christmas Day.

The only question you have to ask yourself is do you prefer the traditional Christmas turkey dinner with Christmas plum pudding and brandy sauce, or do you like the sound of hot roast beef with fresh vegetables, Yorkshire Pudding and a delicious homemade raspberry and sherry trifle to finish instead?

Many centres will start running their Christmas Menus from November with appropriate children’s menus and vegetarian options, but it’s always a good idea to check beforehand and make a booking where necessary to make ensure you aren’t disappointed.

Your Christmas Garden Centre

A visit to Father Christmas, Christmas tree, decoration and seasonal plant shopping, and a wonderful, festive themed sit-down meal. What could be a more perfect day out? Going to a garden centre is a smart way of keeping the children entertained and the home looking magical for the winter season. For this reason, it makes your Christmas preparations even more enjoyable.

If you’re not sure where your nearest centre is, check your phone book or look online. Alternatively, The Garden Centre Group’s range of centres across the UK are offering a whole range of Christmas activities in the run up to November and December.

Make Christmas hassle free and enjoyable for the entire family and choose a garden centre Christmas as your next family destination.

It Is Absolutely Advantageous For Our Businesses to Deliver Remarkable Quality and Convenience

Creating an extraordinary product and then sharing it openly generates something amazing. Suddenly, but almost never immediately, a head will turn, then another and then another. News about the product or service will begin to spread from person to person. As businesses, we strive to make this happen.

This what is now called “social sharing” of our product should be our goal as it brings success to our businesses. This sharing and interaction about our product is however simply out of our immediate control. Partners, friends and customers, regardless of our requests, will only interact based on the product itself, the excitement it generates, and the unique needs it satisfies. Therefore, the best use of our time and energy is on creating an extraordinary product and then making it’s offering of real personal value to our consumers. Almost too simple.

Start by thinking about your product or service from your customer’s viewpoint. Are you providing an extraordinary product or service? Is it convenient to purchase from you? Is your offer personal and extraordinary? What I am talking about is at the fundamental level of knowing who your customers are, what they buy from you now, and even more importantly what they will buy from you in the future. Ask yourself, “What businesses do you value the most? How many businesses do you buy from today really know you? And as importantly, would you miss these businesses and their products and services if for some reason they changed the way they did business?” Your business must function at a level and provide products and services at a level that is both personal and extraordinary as viewed and needed by your customers.

Does this personal relationship give these businesses an advantage over others in their markets? With me it does and I believe it should with you too regardless if you are selling or buying products and services. It isn’t just about price and quality anymore. It is also about getting service and about having a relationship. Whether we contract for services, shop for products online or in the store, more and more of us shop most where we are recognized as a loyal customer. When we have this relationship, we know this business has gone beyond satisfying us and are now providing us a unique service. And as importantly they are now one of our trusted friends. You can bet I am going to do business over and over again with them so long as they continue to treat me as a friend and provide quality services that I need.

The formula is clear if we choose to use it, once we provide the best product or service we must then make the offer personal and remarkable. The market interaction that we desire will then happen as you begin to share and talk about your product with your partners, peers and friends. They will take care of the market interaction itself. We, as businesses and individuals can’t control this interaction. We can only setup the variables that may possibly start this business growing interaction.

Offering what is an extraordinary product is the only element in our control. And I believe, the primary element that will generate great success in the future. As our customers look for and choose quality, convenience and cost, we must in turn choose to give them this within a consistently personal and remarkable way.

If you are one of these personal and remarkable businesses, openly share your products and expertise the next time you do business. Your partners, peers and friends are anxious and ready to talk about you.
