And the days go by like a strand in the wind… in the web that is my own… I begin again. –Stevie Nicks
My head and hands hum with energy. I can feel the raw power of my inner self building, and pushing to the surface. Sometimes I stomp, twirl and sing as loud as I can to release this passion. Self-expression is the path to spiritual empowerment.
Every moment is a chance to begin again. Opportunities slip in and out of our lives. Sometimes we will grab them by the horns and other times we are completely blind-sided. Yet, there is always another moment to be free, to be brave, to be wild.
Have you ever felt the call of your own raw passion?
Or the intense energy of your own creative expression trying to break free?
Of course you have… we all experience this. This is our true self. The self that seeks to be heard, felt and given life.
When you sit at your desk, antsy for something bigger, and bolder you are feeling your spirit. When you walk down the street with a deep longing for something exciting and new you are feeling your spirit. And when you actually fall curious to your own longing you go into a deep communion with the Universe.
Creative expression is act of prayer.
Pray out loud. Pray with your words. Pray with your voice. Pray with your body. Pray with your colors. Pray with your actions.
I want you to know that you are always being born again to the moment.
Do you dare to be transformed into something bigger, bolder and free?
Today make ONE RADICAL Gesture OF SELF-EXPESSION!
What does that mean?
Radical gestures of self-expression are those unadulterated moments of doing something for the hell of it. Doing something because you want to. Not because someone else told you to. Radical gestures of self-expression are those moments where you dance, and sing like no one is watching. Put on a show for the world just to say you did.
Go out into the WORLD, baby, and do the damn thing!
Promise me you will do one thing that feels a little dangerous, a little wild, that takes you out of your BOX.
Let that fire, energy, and life surge through you. Get a taste of your DIVINITY and see what comes next.
I want to hear about it. Leave me a comment, or send me a message.
Want to make big changes in your life?

Just 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:
- The Past of the visitor.
- A clue about their life, or passing.
- What message they may have for you.
- 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.

The magical part of life is that you are in a constant state of motion. You are a divine being experiencing your own divinity! You incarnate to learn and experience, and before your incarnation you create a “map” that details the different events of your life to lead you to spiritual growth, and “enlightenment”.
In this life you will have mapped out many things. Some of the lessons you have mapped out will be physical obstacles, dealing with health, security and safety. Others will be mental/emotional dealing with relationships, addictions, beliefs and fears. Or spiritual obstacles dealing with faith, religion and issues of your own divinity.
On your map you will have strategically placed the right people, the right places and the right events to help you to achieve your goals of spiritual growth. Like a geographic map, you will have created alternate routes in order to fulfill your journey.
There is a secret: Your pace of learning is completely up to you.
It may not always seem that way when you are in the process of living your map, but on a spiritual level your soul is constantly being guided. You choose how fast or slow you get to your mapped out destination.
The more conscious you are of your spiritual state, and the concept of your map, the faster you can grow and learn spiritually. The quickest way to travel your map is through trusting your intuition, and consciously manifesting (through prayer, spellwork, and a regular spiritual practice).
Your intuition is your spiritual navigation system. It is constantly trying to link you to the smoothest and most effective path to your spiritual experiencing.
To help you connect to your intuition create a daily routine. Here are a few suggestions:
–Spend at least 15 minutes a day in meditation and prayer. Meditation is an opportunity for your mind to slow down, and your intuition to leak into your awareness. Prayer is a way of creating dialogue with the Divine. Open yourself up to your personal Goddess, and allow her wisdom to touch you.
–Use spiritual cleansing as a way to clear your energy field. Remember, you are constantly telling an energetic story, and this energetic story dictates the route you take on your map. Take a spiritual bath with salt water once a week. Use sage smudging to lighten your aura.
–Light a candle of intention. What goals are you trying to attain? What energy are you trying to invite into your life? Create a simple ritual to help attract these qualities. Inscribe a white candle with a word, or phrase that sums up your intention and anoint it with sweet oil.
A Simple Daily Blessing
On Monday gather a handful of mugwort and rue. A white candle. Lavender oil. And silver thread. Make a strong tea from the mugwort and rue. Start a hot bath, adding the tea as the water runs. Once you slip into the bath allow yourself to ground and center. Let the energy of the Divine fill you up, and wash away all negativity.
Say a simple prayer of blessing, such as, “Mother goddess, loving and divine, clear my body and my mind. Surround me with your spiritual glow, and bless me on this journey I go.”
Soak for 10-15 minutes. Then towel yourself off gently and sit cross-legged on the floor. Hold the silver candle in your hands filling it with intention. You can use the above blessing. Anoint the candle with lavender oil, and your pulse points. Light the candle.
As the candle burns, tie a knot in the silver thread for each goal, or blessing you want to bring in your life. This will act as a charm of attraction. Let the candle burn out. Keep the thread under your pillow, or on your altar.
All good journeys begin with an adventurous spirit, and a good dose of positive energy! Remember to trust your intuition and use the wonderful tools that you have at your fingertips. Many blessings to you!
