What I learned from reading Christmas-Tree Land by Mary Louisa Molesworth

Christmas-Tree Land
by Mary Louisa Molesworth

Another book I finished a couple of weeks ago is Christmas-Tree Land by Mary Louisa Molesworth, and this was a very interesting reading because I’ve never heard or read anything about Mary Louisa before in my life, so I had my doubts as wether to read this or not, because as you might have noticed I like reading classical and well known authors.

But since the version I downloaded of the Life & Adventures of Santa Claus for free in iBooks, was actually a compilation of several Christmas Novels / Stories, I decided to just keep reading and check the other books in there too, so expect that the upcoming reviews of this year are going to be mostly about Christmas Books, because that compilation have like 15 or 20 books in it (although there are some that I’ve already read, so I’ll skip those ones).

Now, back to Mary Louisa Novel: Christmas-Tree Land, it is a fantastic children book, it is really entertaining and full of magic and unbelievable events, which made me really happy to read, as I love everything Magic and Fantastic, so I enjoyed this book a lot. 

And since it’s a children book it’s pretty easy to read and it’s not that long, so then again it was a perfect reading for me; although if there’s something I could say that I didn’t like about this book is that probably it was too structured, it seemed as if this book followed the basic children book script so it felt very generic, but then again I enjoyed it and it was good altogether. 

But what I learned from it? 

I learned from this book that spirituality is something that is planted within us from our childhood,  because if we don’t believe in magic or fantasy when we are kids, it’s really hard that we can develop any spirituality when we grow up and even more unlikely that we can teach or pass anything related to it to our kids or children around us. 

And I learned this over analyzing the characters and the plot of this book, so don’t expect to find any lines or comments about spirituality in it! But for me every book that has fairies and magic in it, it’s a spiritual book, because to be able to write about fairies, one has to have at least some basic knowledge about them and occultism, and the way Mary Louisa talks about fairies and nature in this novel, makes me believe that she was initiated into the occult knowledge (another reason why I enjoyed this book so much). 

So if you are into occultism and children books like I am you should give it a try to Christmas-Tree Land, even when it’s not Christmas time, because it is a really enjoyable read!

What I Learned From Reading: The Life and Adventures of Santa Claus

The Life and Adventures of Santa Claus 
By L. Frank Baum

This is another book that I read on December but I didn’t have the time to analyze and digest, because of all the work and time I was putting to my Tarot Readings project / branding www.weeklytarot.com but since I don’t have any customers tonight’s I figured it would be great to catch up with my reviews. 

For starters, I want to let you know that I’ve read all 13 Books of The Land of Oz and The Sea Fairies, so this was not my first time with L. Frank Baum so I kinda had expectations about this book, knowing his style and amazing creativity and imagination, and I’m really glad to say that all my expectations were met! 

The Life and Adventures of Santa Claus is an amazing, magical and entertaining children book, that serves as a biography of our beloved Santa, and even though it was made up by Frank, I took it as the cannon story of Santa, because despite being all fiction, it makes sense and goes accordingly with the occult knowledge of the actual universe. 

So it is a brilliant book that was majestic put together, I loved it! And it really blew my mind when I searched the Wikipedia article of it and found out that Frank wrote and published this book way BEFORE the Land of Oz series, because I thought this book was published after them! So it’s even more amazing how Frank kept and stay true to his style and fantasy world he created on his mind.

But what did I learn from it? 

Well, as it’s usual with Frank’s novels, this book has a lot of moral lessons and A LOT of occult knowledge, but the lesson that sticks the more to me from the Life and Adventures of Santa Claus is that of how consistency and hard work can lead you to greatness, and that even the biggest public figures start from the bottom.

In this book, Frank tells the story of how Santa made his first toy carving it out of wood, and then he keept doing one by one before actually getting any help, so he started from the bottom, and it was his consistency and hard work that brought him the fame he has nowadays, and even though he is a fictional character, life does not part too long from fiction.

So that’s the great lesson I learned from it! Which at the same time motivates me to keep going until I finally make it!

What I learned from reading The Caste of Otranto by Horace Walpole

The Castle of Otranto

I am a little behind with the books that I’ve read recently, because I’ve so focused in working in my new project www.weeklytarot.com and in the branding of it and all the tarot readings that I am doing every day that I didn’t have much time for blogging about the books I’ve read. 

But now re taking the reviews and the lessons or knowledge I learn from the books I’ve read, I finished this book, The Castle of Otranto by Horace Walpole, back in December, and I honestly wasn’t sure of wether to post of having read this book or not. 

Because after reading it, I felt that I didn’t learn anything new besides all that you can find in the Wikipedia article of it, since from my point of view this book is purely entertainment, of course you find some ironies of life in it about relationship and love, but I didn’t think it was something new or relevant to me (although it probably was back in the time it was published). 

Although I cannot deny that the story was very interesting, specially since it’s about apparitions, prophecies, love and power, so it’s a very complete book plot-wise talking. 

Also this book is considered the first Gothic Book that open the path for so many gothic writers that emerge after The Castle of Otranto was published, so I think it’s a must read. Since it represents the beginning of an era. 

And now that I’ve been writing this post and thinking about this book, I think that I can say that best lesson or knowledge I can pull out of it it’s that sometimes being in the wrong place at the wrong time can change your life. 

So, always be aware of where you are and pay attentions of your surroundings.

Visual Art: The Hand of the Emoji

The Hand Of The Emoji by Sir Helder Amos

Hello everyone, happy new year 2021! 

I hope everyone had received the new year with a positive attitude and mindset, in my case I am receiving it with this new Photo-collage that I did! Because is there a better way to start the new year than with a piece of art that represents the new stages or phases in your life? 

I don’t think so! 

So I wanna start this 2021 sharing with you this piece I decided to call the Hand of the Emoji, because I like to think of it as a newer and updated version of  “ La Mano Dei Filosofi” or in English the “Hand of the Mysteries”, which in alchemy is believed that contain the knowledge to achieve divinity and unravel all the mysteries and secrets of humankind. 

And since I’ve been studying the occult symbolisms and meanings of the original piece I think it was time to give it an update, and what a better way to adapt it to modern times than by using emojis, that I don’t know if by chance or by intention, relate perfectly well with each symbol of the original piece. 

So I really hope you like this photo and take some time to look a little bit more about the “Hand of Mysteries” because it is a really profound image with a even more amazing background in alchemy, just beware to not let yourself be fooled by the adaptation Gucci did of the Hand of The Mysteries a few years ago for one of its campaigns, because although it was pretty good it had a more darker meaning of the original version and than even mine!
