Llumination with Aleia
As minister, therapist and counselor, I am always on the look out for ways to provide support that is innovative, fun, and inspiration of personal truth for the seeker. One of the methods I have found useful is a board game called Llumination Quest, which is based on the Tarot. It is amazingly insightful. Much more than a board game, I feel that it helps to open a portal to expanded consciousness and enlightenment for players and have seen amazing events occur for seekers after play.
During the game, you have opportunity to hone and sharpen intuitive skills, compassionate speaking, and careful listening; receiving spiritual comfort and guidance for yourself and your fellow players.
I see that Llumination is part of

Our Deepest Fears
From Return to Love by Marianne Williamson
Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous? Actually, who are you NOT to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won’t feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine, as children do. We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It is not just in some of us; it is in everyone. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.
