The most important relationship in my life is between me and a power greater than myself. I have found empowerment through formal studies and the guidance of professionals working with both Angels and Devils. For example,
“Fears, obsessions, addictions are all parts of ourselves that have become “demonic” by being split off, disowned, and battled against. When you try to flee from your demons, they pursue you. By struggling with them, you become weaker and may even succumb to them completely. For example, someone who struggles with the demon of alcoholism may eventually die of liver disease. Someone who struggles with the demon of depression may eventually commit suicide. We need to recognize the futility of this struggle and begin to accept and even love those parts of ourselves.” Tsultrim Allione, 5 Steps of Feeding Your Demons®, (webpage).
While I love a great horror movie and been terrified by images of dark forces portrayed in media, I end up laughing at myself for being fooled by the illusion of the movie. I laugh at myself because I know I was never in danger. It’s part of what makes the movie so F-U-N; I was fooled. It is the exact same message when The Devil Tarot card appears in a pattern, and yes, real life can be just as F-U-N.
The Devil Tarot card keys me into a current scene involving a person, place or situation with an unnecessary terror. BUT, hidden behind the feelings are insights worthy of attention and most importantly - a sense of humor.
It is easy to know that people, places, and situations are not what they appear to be - most of the time. The dance of life is taking what we know and connecting it to our heart and making it part of our everyday life. Therefore, part of my spiritual practice is to engage with seeming devils, demons, and adversaries that appear.Ultimately, the insights and reminders prove to be that an essential right and freedom that I had thought I had lost was entirely up to me. Once I name what I am (seemingly) powerless over, I begin the journey reclaiming my power.
Reviewing my past, I can laugh at the Devils that crossed my path. I can even thank them for shining a light on my blind spots.
Angels and Demons are both very old and beloved archetypes making them universally poignant, powerful in evoking an emotional response. According to Jungian Psychology (website) your subconscious will respond to our conscious thoughts and beliefs about the, “Angels” and “Devils” we perceive influencing our lives. Most cultures perceive Angels as opportunities for liberation and Devils as bondage's to pain.
I have been formally studying the archetypes of Angels and Devils since 2011. Spiritual journeys are very personal and usually private for everyone to hold in their belief system. The most important relationship in my life is between me and a power greater than myself.

I would like to honor acupuncturist, Dana Price (website) for introducing me to the 9 Breaths Meditation Practice by Tsultrim Allione (website). Both women have made a significant impact on working with my demons. There are other elements to my spiritual practice such as attending Franciscan church services at Our Lady of the Angels, studying B.O.T.A., and Caroline Myss.
