How to Conduct a Séance with Tarot

girl-using-ouija-boardJust beyond the tip of your senses in a vibrant world, swirling, and illuminated. If you shut your physical eyes, and open you mystical ones you will see the Spirit World, a place that dances with a menagerie of wonders. To some it may seem far, distant and forgotten… but really those who have passed are all around us.

Since I was a child I could see, and sense things that thrive beyond the veil. I would experience the fragments of forgotten memories, the whispers of the past, and those who’ve passed on. When we are children we are awake to these things, they are just as real as anything you can touch with you hands. And for some of us the sight never fades.

Time has gifted me with the ability understand these things. I can go deeper into the mysteries, or throw up my protection to keep unwanted things at bay. But the whispers of the Other Side are always there. Even you can sense it if you open yourself.

As someone who travels the invisible realms with my senses, with Tarot and tea leaves I see messages everywhere. The unfolding of intuition, the blooming of signs and symbols. The sacred dreamtime is always calling to our senses… from the chills up your spine, to the clouds in the sky, the riddles of your dreams, and the songs on the radio.

But have you ever wondered how to talk to the Invisible world?

Maybe you’ve called out to a passed loved one for a message. Or consulted the spirit board to see if some invisible hand could spell out a message. People are curious to what lies just beyond the veil.

The invisible world is always looking for a way to communicate with you. Whether it is your angels, your higher self, the Universe, or your deceased relatives. You just have to find your unique language for communicating, your telephone line!

Conduct a séance with Tarot. Find your favorite deck, the one that works best for you. Look for images that really speak to you. Find a safe, and private place. Set the mood by lighting a candle, and sipping a cup of warm tea.

Burn sage or incense to cleanse the air, and open the door. Ask for the light of protection to surround you, and say a prayer of protection. Call out: I am here to speak beyond the veil. I call on my Spirit Circle to communicate with me.  

Take yourself into a meditative state. Breathe deeply finding the rhythm of your breath. Inhale and exhale counting and falling deeper into you’re the velvety darkness of your inner wisdom. When you feel grounded and open begin to shuffle.

Concentrate on the task at hand. If you want to speak to someone specific then politely ask them to join you in the circle. Maybe place a photograph of whomever you want to speak with on your reading table. And speak their name aloud. If you would like to speak with whoever wants to join you then just be open. Ask that only good join you in the circle.

Now lay the cards out. One by one. Maybe making little fans in front of you. Search for clues in the cards. Look at the colors, the scenes, the images and anything that stands out to you.
What catches you attention?

What seems to stand out the most?

Who appears in the cards?

Look for people in the images. Look for the court cards specifically to identify people. Pay attention to their status, their age, the color of their hair and their sex. See if you can pinpoint a scene that clarifies who they are, and what they did in life.

If you want to use a spread lay out a card for:

  1. The Past of the visitor.
  2. A clue about their life, or passing.
  3. What message they may have for you.
  4. A parting piece of wisdom.

Remember the cards are a language. Ask questions; lay out a card to get the answer. Let the words be the voice of the spirit. Explore, play and see what happens. You may find the séance unfolds all around you… beyond the cards!

Or pick a few people you wish to speak with, and assign them cards. Shuffle the deck (remembering who is who), and lay the cards out. If that those card appear you know they are there, and wish to speak. If they do not, then another person may be working to speak with you.

Sometimes picking a card to represent the person you wish to speak with will help you identify them. You can choose the card before the reading, laying it to the side, and building the cards around it.

Often times when I am reading for someone and using Tarot I will pick up on people in the persons life. When a card distinctly stands out as an individual in my clients life I will meditate on that card… going deeper into its essence to see if it is someone alive, or in spirit.

How to Prepare a Crystal Bath for Empaths

“Empaths are highly attuned, sensitive individuals who have a natural connection to the subtle worlds. These are the subtle worlds of thought, emotion, spirit and energy. These people tend to be artistic, intuitive and right-brained individuals who process the world around them through “feeling”.”

-5 Tips for the Thriving Empath, Shaheen

It is essential for empathic people to take time for rest and relaxation. This is how you disconnect from harmful energies, and recharge yourself so that you feel more vital. I urge you to make a daily ritual of this. You will find yourself improving every day.

A powerful way to recharge your essence, and bring yourself to center is through the ritual of bathing. Bathing has been a powerful form of energetic cleansing for thousands of years, and it offers you a chance to charge your energy with good intention.

Adding crystals to your bathwater will create a unique vibration that can infuse the aura, and invigorate the spirit. I have created a simple bath for empaths. Try this and see how you feel.

Crystal Bath for Empaths

Gather 3 crystals: Citrine, Amethyst, and Rose Quartz.

Citrine is the path opener stone. It pushes out negative vibrations and enhances the aura to a state of wellbeing. Amethyst is a stone of protection, and clarity, opening the third eye to help with clear intuitive perception. Amethyst will also act as a vacuum for holding unnecessary energies. Rose Quartz is a heart stone, releasing any bound up energies that may be clogging the heart center.

Combined together, these 3 stones create a calming, healing and stabilizing vibration that will benefit anyone, especially the empath.

Also gather essential oils of lavender, rosemary and geranium.

To create your sacred bath fill you tube half full with warm water. Make sure that the temperature suites a relaxing state of mind. This is a type of meditation, and isn’t meant for bathing with soap. You are creating a sacred moment.

Add to the water 3-5 drops of each oil. Be sure to do this as the water runs, dropping them under the spout so that the oils are dispersed evenly through the bath. You can even drop the oils in ½ cup of witch hazel, and then pour them into the bath.

Now place each stone into the water, focusing on their specific vibration. Ask for their energies to infuse the bath, and charge your aura to bring you into equilibrium, and honor your highest good.

When the bath is ready, simply step in and sink down. Let yourself melt into the calming presence of the scents of the botanicals, the vibration of the crystals and the serenity of being alone, and in the moment.

Release anything that seems to be troubling you. Imagine that it is flowing out, into the water, and transformed by the healing properties. Let yourself be filled with light, and vitality. Feel this in every fiber of your being. You are glowing.

Set an intention for yourself. Affirm that you are safe, balanced and whole. Affirm that you are in this moment, now… fully present, open to the shift, and completely deserving of this gift.

Stay there for at least 15 minutes, or as long as you like. When you are finished express a feeling of gratitude. Towel yourself dry, and turn in for the evening.

How to Use High Vibration to Spiritually Cleanse and Protect Yourself

I have written extensively on spiritual/psychic cleansing, which is the act of releasing negative, unwanted and unintentional energies that surround you. This is an affirmative process that defines your space, and reestablishes your connection to your highest good. With that being said, spiritual cleansing is just that cleaning.

If you dust your home, rest assured that you will need to dust again. If you cleanse your energy body, you will need to do it again! What a practical concept. You are wiping away the unwanted, but you must replace it with something.

Think about it this way, when you are spiritually cleansing yourself, you are setting an intention hat you are releasing something unwanted, to allow you to connect with something you do want. Break that down… what do you want…well to put it simply you are wanting to be happy, you are wanting to feel good, you are wanting to be whole, completely tapped into your natural state of wellbeing.

Vibration is the key. Everything is a vibration, whether it is a low/negative, or high/positive vibration…everything is vibration. When you are spiritually cleanse yourself, you are ridding yourself of accumulated, negative gunk.

What allowed that negative gunk to form?

You! Your state of being, either consciously, or unconsciously you welcomed those negative vibrations. Now that is not meant to instill a sense of guilt in you, or fear. It is just the fact of the matter. This can come from a simple willingness to be open to whatever is around you. And at different times of your life you will find your defenses are weak.

The key to successful spiritual cleansing is to raise your vibration, and protect your energy self. Raising your vibration means that you are moving from a lower vibratory state, to a higher one. You are moving from fear, to acceptance. You are moving from pain, to wellness. You are moving from anger, to love.

When you clear one vibration, you must replace it with its energetic opposite. This is where most people fall short. If you spiritually release your pain, and then continue to follow pain patterns, then this will only be a very, very temporary fix.

Clear the negativity away, and choose a vibration that is opposite then you will not need to cleanse yourself as often. Taking protective measures after spiritual cleansing will fortify this process, and essentially take you to the next highest vibration.

Name your vibration

Before you do a spiritual cleansing session take some time to meditate on your state of being. Name your vibration. Give it a name. What do you feel in that moment?

Give it a one-word name. Be simple, be clear, and be honest. There is power in a name. If you name something you are getting to the heart of whatever it is. It doesn’t matter the source of your vibration. The vibration itself is all that matters.

Maybe you named your current vibration as anger. So you are feeling anger right now. You are being bound up in anger. You are vibrating with anger, and you are attracting more opportunities for anger.

It doesn’t matter where your feelings of anger come from. They may come from you, and you alone. Or maybe your experience of anger is brought on from someone in your life. On the deepest level all things are coming from you because somewhere you have accepted that state of being.

Remember, everything is a mirror of your inner world.

Later you can look for the source, and make a conscious effort to eliminate, or avoid that thing!

But for now we are naming the vibration. You are experiencing a vibration of anger. So what is the opposite of anger? The opposite of anger is love.

So you are eliminating, cleansing away the vibration of anger to make way for the vibration of love. You want to experience love, and in order to do this you have to wipe away the feelings of anger.

Go through the process of clearing away anger. This can be done in any number of ways. Cleanse yourself with a Sacred Sage Bundle to release negative energy. Try misting a botanical mixture like, The Gypsy’s Aura Elixir.  Do a sea salt bath to clear way negative energy. Whatever method works for you… do it.

And then… replace it with the opposite vibration.

How to choose a better vibration

You can simply choose the next vibration. Remember, your most powerful tool for change is your mind. Your mind is the way you direct your reality. When you consciously manifest your life, you can experience whatever you want.

That sounds simple, and easy. And really it is. But for most people it is easier said than done. But here we are, in this moment, choosing to do something different. And that is the key!

Name your next vibration. Name the next highest vibration you can believe in. Maybe you are releasing anger, and wanting to move to a place of love. But love might be way too far off for you to go right now. So we move to a vibration of acceptance.

You are accepting your experience. You are accepting yourself. Acceptance is the pathway to love. Maybe you are going to move to a state of like… and then from there you can move to a state of love.

A few ways to infuse your energy body with a new, higher vibration

Work with crystal energy. Crystals are seeds of energy. They are concentrated forms of intentional vibrations. When you work with crystals you are infusing yourself with the essence of whatever vibration that crystal holds.

In this case we are moving through anger, to love. So using a stone of love, that vibrates with love, will open the heart center, integrating into your vibration, and helping you get to a move loving place.

This can be a simple process of holding a stone of love. Or taking a bath infused with a love crystal. Rose quartz is a powerful stone of love. It is gentle, and friendly. This will help to balance and fortify your intention for love.

Herbs, and botanicals also vibrate at a high rate. Taking an herbal bath will help to infuse your aura with a certain vibratory pattern. The traditional tool Florida Water has been used for years in spiritual practices because it vibrates at a high rate. It basically eradicates negative vibrations.

You can use Florida Water after you have done a traditional spiritual cleansing. Mist yourself with Florida Water, dab it on your wrist. And as you are doing this set the intention for yourself that you are going to feel a higher vibration.

Affirm this, concentrate on it. Meditate on it. Remind yourself of this higher vibration every time you begin to stray from it. And believe it, feel it in every fiber of your being.

When I work with clients during an Intuitive Consultation we are naming the energies at play in their lives. When we name these energies, and see how they are working through life… we can find points of power to make change. This will give you a snapshot of where you are, where you’ve been, and how that is dictating the path you are going down.

When I work with clients during a spiritual cleansing, energy session we are working to remove these negative blocks, and filling the holes with a higher vibration. I enjoy this process because it is a proactive approach to spiritual/psychic cleansing.

We are not only removing, or working to remove the block, but we are trying to replace it with something better.

If something is making you sick, you treat the symptom, and remove the source. If you just treat the symptom of your sickness… in this case your energetic disharmony, without removing the source then you will only get back what you had before.

I invite you to take this step forward. I would be happy to help you along the way. I want you to feel empowered. I want you to move forward in your life in a positive direction. We can do this together if you like.

Follow your heart!
