When one door closes, another opens

Your vision will become clear only when you can look into your own heart. Who looks outside, dreams; who looks inside, awakes. — C.G. Jung

Jacqueline Stuart | 2018 | II of Wands from The Forest Dark Tarot

On December 31, 2017, after working on an illustrated novel that started out as a 15-page dark fairy tale in 2009, I walked away from the 8-year project for reasons that I will try to explain via my blog posts.

As I reflect on the process and evolution of my illustrated novel, I have realized that the project itself became an evolving reflection of my relationship to my spirit guide and his slow revelation of his true identity in his most recent past life.

When I closed the metaphorical door that was my illustrated novel, other doors opened. One of my life-long dreams has been to obtain my PhD in Psychology, which I am now pursuing. I have also always wanted to live in Stowe (if I could not return “home” to Germany where my spirit guide and I had resided in one of our previous past lives). As it turned out, I was able to purchase a condo right in Stowe with spectacular views of the Mount Mansfield range. Another one of my life-long dreams has been to create my own 78-card tarot deck, which I am currently undertaking.
