Why Curiosity Is The New Black

why curiosity is the new black
Curiosity killed the cat... and satisfaction brought it back.
“Why is it that when one man builds a wall, the next man immediately needs to know what's on the other side?” - George R.R. Martin, A Game of Thrones

Do fears, low self-esteem and other self-imposed restrictions hold you back? Then you may be surprised to learn that developing and nurturing a curious mind can help you overcome these blocks.

As children we had no inhibitions when it came to expressing our creativity or exploring unknown places, but while growing up, we started to develop all kinds of insecurities and self-doubt, which have become so hard to shake off.

Curiosity is a surprisingly simple and useful tactic that will help you make some positive changes, and that's why I included it in the Cosmic Journaling Oracle.

Next time you are fearful of something, be curious instead.

Explore despite your fears. Express yourself and be curious about where it leads you.

Meet new people anyway, even if you fear rejection. Be curious about getting to know new folk.

Show off your art anyway, even if you think it's not good enough. Be curious about what people have to say. Even ask them for feedback. Wouldn't it be great to know what people think rather than making assumptions?

Curiosity in the Cosmic Journaling Oracle asks you to replace any blocks you have with a sense of wonder and the open mind of an explorer.

Explore new opportunities and experiences. Instead of No, say Yes. Why not?

When this card comes up in a reading, ask yourself:

  • When were you last curious about something? Did you ignore the feeling or embraced it to learn something new?
  • What do you need to be more curious about in your life? You could draw an additional card to find out.
  • How has curiosity affected you in childhood? How does it affect you as an adult?
  • Has curiosity at any time got you into danger? If yes, when and what's the story? How was it resolved? What did you learn from it?
Likewise, when this card comes up in a "what not to do" position, you may want to avoid being nosey, e.g. meddle in other people's issues that are none of your business. And curiosity isn't about being reckless, getting yourself into life danger or gamble all your life savings...

The Cosmic Journaling Oracle is now available as a digital edition together with a guidebook containing journaling sheets and other printable goodies. Learn more here.

Warmest wishes,

Christiane

Making Tarot Journaling More Fun

Who says keeping a diary or recording your tarot / oracle readings should be done on boring white paper?

There are more creative ways you can make your journal look exciting and inviting.

In order to make it easy for you taking the first step, I have created a wide range of journaling sheets for you to download for free and also to buy. Good news is that there will be many more on the way to cover all sorts of topics.

As you can see from the pics in this post, adding some colour and redesigning the writing space already makes a difference to help you think outside the box.

In addition, using different colour pens, your own doodles, stickers and printed card images you will make your journal truly unique.

There are many different journaling sheets available, for one-, two- and multi-card readings, daily/weekly reflections, gratitude lists etc.

Digital Edition & Guidebook
The sheets are designed to be flexible; you can also use them to record your favourite quotes, things to do, books to read, films to watch, bucket lists and so much more.

And the best thing about downloads is you can print them again and again to feed your journaling habit.

My latest creation is the digital edition of the Cosmic Journaling Oracle, which comes with a guidebook including printable bonus material such as greeting cards, journaling sheets and cover pages.

The oracle deck has been specifically designed for journaling but also for divination.

Together with the guidebook you can use the cards for self-exploration while creating a unique record of your life journey.

All my printable products have been designed for paper lovers and those who would like to rediscover their passion for handwriting and the real feel of paper (rather than just keeping notes in the digital twilight zone on electronic devices).
