Why Tarot, Oracle, and Runes


, , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , ,


Good Afternoon all, it’s Liza, the Owner of The Wandering Path. I’ve got a bad summer cold but figured I would use this time to sip some Autumn Tea to help and also get down some things I say quite a bit in person but have yet to express online. The reason I chose to stock different types of divination items is because some of us may be new to the option; and also need to recognize that these types of tools are not just for speaking to other lines of existence but also as a way to speak to ourselves. Our conscious mind often needs a kick in the butt to get moving or to slow down….and I’ve found through my journey that tarot, oracle, or runes were the best way to give me that proverbial kick. The conscious mind hates change; hates surprises; is often fearful and doesn’t like to make a leap or to slow down without some kind of assurance. I see tarot, oracle, and runes as a way to allow the Conscious mind to hear the Subconscious which often knows the path we need to take; the feelings we need to pay attention to; or what things are going on. Tarot decks and their interpretations can be difficult for people starting out; and often you need to be calm and focused on what you are asking to get an understandable answer so I chose to bring in Oracle decks as a more “to the point” option for people. I find Oracle decks to be a great option for people starting out as they don’t really require you to understand how to read yourself, the energies of the day, etc… Runes, the other option I carry, allow for another “drawn to” option as the stone itself usually draws you first. I tell people that there are ways to use runes but mostly to pay attention to the symbol that keeps coming up whether you’re drawing one/handful from the bag during uncertain times or tossing them to gain perspective as that is the symbol(s) trying to get your attention. I also like runes because you can carry them with you; as a way to ask for that symbol/stones help during times where you feel the need…which you can’t really do with card types. These tools, in my belief, are here as ways to help make your journey a tad easier if you allow them to. And don’t fret when you start to lose cards or stones…(just like symbolic jewelry or other talismans)…that usually means when they don’t re-appear that their ability to guide you at that portion of your life has passed and another set/type/symbol is out there that will help you on your current section. That’s why you feel drawn to other things and it’s perfectly normal. I personally own at least 5 decks; multiple gemstones/symbolism items and depending upon the day is what I feel may help me the most. I have my “go to’s” but on other days I feel pulled to use another just as with everything you have…scents, colors, clothing, etc…everything you own there is just “something” that tells you on that day this is what I need…so it is with using divination tools. I hope this helps you to understand how I view Tarot, Oracle, and Runes and to decide if they will help you.

Thoughts on the newest routine


, , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , ,

Good Afternoon all, it’s Liza, the Owner of The Wandering Path. This past week has me on the next new routine…and the graphic I put together below is what it feels like so far…so many thoughts happen on that moonlight drive….and I gotta admit, the mostly “green light” drive factor is fantastic. The mid-day rise is the hardest to get used to as I am more of a night person so I don’t feel like doing my errands or other things until it is near sunset. Wish me luck as I get used to this new routine and hopefully soon the mid-day will become a welcomed time and not one where when I stare at the list of things to do and the “ugh it’s hot” factor feeling begins (and yes you guessed it… a face plant into the nearest pillow).  

BB, thanks for listening. –Liza M.


It hurts…I know…but….maybe…


, , , , , , , , , ,

Good Evening all, it’s Liza, the Owner of The Wandering Path. The past few months I’ve met many new people and for that I am thankful. I have also noticed the flux lately of many suffering from missing someone….whether it was a death in the sense of the physical body passing on or in an end of a relationship and even in the potential for one (friendship, love, companionship, family ties etc..). Remember them. Remember what the experience taught you about what you want from your life….whether the relationships ended with a “love you…see you soon” or with harsher words…I believe every relationship we endure…is meant to teach us something about who we are; who we want to be…and who we deserve as companion(s) during our journey here. This thought process was inspired after I heard a song tonight I haven’t heard in a very long time…it is linked below.  I hope it speaks to you or at least you enjoy it.

BB and enjoy the rest of the evening! With the brightest of blessings –Liza M.

Learning a new Juggling Act is Tiring


, , , , , , , , , , , ,

Good Evening all, it’s Liza, the Owner of The Wandering Path. I do apologize for the lack of blogs lately. I’ve taken on a full time job as well as continuing to do my business.

I have been taking some of my own advice I give to others…making sure to take time to rest and relax while trying to juggle this new outside job and my passion.

Facebook posts & shares are easier than me scripting (yes I write this in html code because I like fancy fonts & colors), so please follow me on there until I find the new balance with this routine.

I hope you all are enjoying the summer and making sure to also take time to ensure you are keeping yourself both physically and mentally rested to be around others.

BB and enjoy the rest of the evening! –Liza M.

Giving is the Best Communication


, , , , , , , , , , , , , ,

Good Afternoon all, it’s Liza, the Owner of The Wandering Path. Understanding and recognizing the needs of others can impact you and the person you are helping their entire lives. I love this video because in a time of need a giving person did a very small gesture but that gesture stayed with that person. Sometimes the thank you can come later…and as they say “Giving is the best communication” and I love that message.

BB and enjoy the rest of the day! –Liza M.

The Wandering Path “Healing Types” Essential Oil Listings


, , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , ,

Good Afternoon all, it’s Liza, the Owner of The Wandering Path. Well today has been a busy “creation” day as I need to start keeping track of all my healing type essential oils. So I went and figured out which ones I had already prepared a short information graphic on and which ones I didn’t.

The ones that are missing are included in this post today (Lemon, Clove, Peppermint, Myrrh, Lavender, Tea Tree, Frankincense, Patchouli, Rosemary, Cinnamon, and a quick note on Thieves Oil).

The previous posts have Ylang-Ylang, Galbanum, Eucalyptus, Cedar, and Fresh Ginger. (Hyperlinked for your convenience) I normally like to highlight these a few at a time but necessity trumps all and I should have done this as I got them in so it’s on me. I hope they help you like they do me.

BB and enjoy the rest of the day! –Liza M.













Internal Fire


, , , , , , , , , , , ,

Good Evening all, it’s Liza, the Owner of The Wandering Path. Well my first weekend not opening my booth has now ended. I came down with Strep and rather than infect people I chose to stay home until I no longer felt the “ickiness”. I am also looking for part-time work again as I want to keep the business going as it really does touch on the things I’m passionate about.

Anyone that has met me or has been following along knows I have a “thing” for exploration; finding things that inspire; helping people; finding health alternatives; and cultural exposure. I’m sure there are other things I’ve missed but those are the main things that pop into my recovering from ickiness mind.

It had me thinking about that internal fire…that occasionally burns low and slow and can rage at different situations. We all have one and I think it gets a good bit of fuel to our spirit when we do things we enjoy and that we are passionate about. I hope you have found things that inspire you to explore and find new avenues that bring you joy and what matters is how YOU feel about it not what others may think.

BB and rest well tonight! –Liza M.


Memorial Day Weekend Thoughts


, , , , , , , , , , , ,

Good Morning all, it’s Liza, the Owner of The Wandering Path. As the Memorial Day weekend approaches and the notices for that the flags at Arlington are being put out…my thoughts turn more and more to those I served with, those who inspired me to serve, and to those whose journey here on earth has gone to where I have yet to go.

This time for me, is not about the politics, the “should we have” or “shouldn’t we have”. Instead, I try to not dwell on the things that happened but rather on the people that I went through it with. I remember their faces, their smiles, their stories. I let that inspire me as the other things I carry from that time is always there, sometimes weighing heavier than others. I know dwelling on the things I cannot change is not helpful nor healthy, so instead I do my best (and it doesn’t always work) to take what I learned from those fellow service members, their families, their friends, and let that inspire me to ensure my outlook is not clouded; that I continue to learn, and continue to help if I can. I may no longer be on active duty but I feel as if I never have truly gone off duty.

Forever on watch and doing my best to put forth the best qualities of humanity, decency, patience, strength, and spirit in those that served with me and those we helped while serving. For I have seen joy in the darkest of times; humanity & helping in times where others would have crumbled under the weight of tragedy….In memory of all, whether here or traveled onward…I carry you with me…always, until we meet again.

BB! –Liza M.
