A Time of Parting: A Halloween Message

securedownloadThe night is a gentle fog falling around me, enveloping me, wrapping me in velvet darkness. A cool, inky feeling has settled upon me. My soul is coming out in layers and colors, symbolic gestures that have come before in some ancient life. The autumn is alive and well… the reining queen of the harvest has come to claim her glory.

This is the time when the veil between the worlds is at its thinnest. Our ancestors are among us, cloaked and smiling. Bright shinning stars are lighting up the in-between. Trust your feelings, the shivers, the inspirations, and the insights that have been gifted to you in crystal perfect. This is the time of remembrance. This is the time of parting.

Hold your fears in your hand like little pebbles. Name them, breathe life into them, and then cast them into the fire. Let the cleansing light renew you; relieve you of your worries and concerns. The leaves fall knowing that they will be reborn in the spring. Trust in the process of nature.

I’ve begun pulling cards to tell stories. There are messages in pictures and images. The Universe is speaking to us… imparting wisdom if you hush for a second and bend your ear to listen.

I pulled three cards from the whimsical, Halloween Tarot:

The King of Bats (Swords)

The King of Imps (Wands)

The Four of Pumpkins (coins).

A curious mix of characters have come out to play; the stately kings sitting on their thrones and the benevolent pumpkin creature working diligently in his garden.

The King of Bats

The King of Bats is a reminder to let your thoughts be clear, and in doing so cast away doubt and worry. Your thoughts are powerful charms warding and drawing things to you. Learn to be conscious of what you’re thinking.

The King of Imps

The King of Imps urges get out of your head; channel your thoughts into action. Release the old and begin sewing the new. You have pure energy and potential waiting to be utilized. All you want is within your grasp if you push forward.

The Four of Pumpkins

The Four of Pumpkins whispers…what you begin to sew will bloom and grow into something beautiful and spectacular. You may not see it now, but it will come! Your thoughts are seeds waiting for life, all you need to is meet the Universe half way by pushing your dreams.

Now light a candle to honor your ancestors. Call on the ones you love, and your Spirit Circle to guide, and guard you through the cold, and dark times of Winter.

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.

Live Intentionally: Happy New Year 2015

The New Year is coming… be cheerful and celebrate! The Year is coming to an end, and as you say goodbye to 2014 let yourself discard old, worn-out energies, habits, and feelings. With the New Year you will invite a fresh perspective, and the motivation to begin again.

Transition into the New Year free of all negative energetic cords. Energetic cords are the links that have been created between you, and another person, place thing, or idea. This link creates a two-way line of energy allowing you to feed-off of, or giveaway your energy… and vice versa.

If these energetic cords are attached to something negative… you will feel drained, apathetic, depressed, and stagnant.

Let yourself have time for introspection to evaluate your energetic cords, and investments. Go on a journey to find what you are giving your energy to. What things have you invested in over the past year? Have your investments yielded positive results? Does your spirit feel nourished?

Take at least 15 mins to a half hour of time to meditate. Contemplate where your energy has been going through the last year. And then shift yourself into where you would like to invest that energy in 2015. What seed would you like to sew?

Get to the heart of these issues and call back you energy… so that you can consciously manifest what you want out of life!

As you make your list of New Years Resolutions, or the seeds you will sew, be very intent. Put your energy into things that really make you feel whole, authentic, and alive. Let your resolutions be bigger than just wishful things to muse on for the upcoming year… empower them as intentions, affirmations!

As you phrase your New Years “Intentions”, place them in the present because when you affirm something you want it to feel as real as possible. You want gear your mind to think as though the good is already taking place! Affirm like it is happening now! 

Example: “I am organized, rested and optimistic.”

And never use the word “no” because no is completely canceled out by the subconscious mind.

So to affirm, “I have no issues.” Would really be “I have issues.”

Wishing you lots of luck, and a Happy New Year!

Interview With Brigit from Biddy Tarot

This has been tucked away for awhile… so glad to finally get it out there! Wonderful conversation with Brigit. She is so insightful and down to earth. What a blessing to spend a bit of time chatting with her and getting to know more about her life and view on Tarot!

Visit her website to learn more about what she does and ALL about Tarot!!!


Re: Hello Caller: Long Distance Readings

“You do readings over the phone?!”

“Yep, I sure do! And email!”

“How on earth does that work?”

It amuses me that people are baffled by phone and email readings! But at least they believe a reading can be done. That is a good first step. But why is it more believable that a reading can be done in person, but not long-distance?

I think people are quick to believe in an in-person reading because they can see it. They can see the cards, they can see your face, and they can touch something. They can respond and react with more than just their voice.

The disconnect is most people still don’t understand energy!

A reading is an energetic evaluation! When someone reads you, they are tapping into the energies that surround you. They are recounting your energetic story… the one that you are creating in your personal universe… which links up with the big Universe and makes things happen!

Even if a reader is using Tarot cards, or tealeaves, or palms, or runes… they are only tools. The tools are creating patterns based on energy, and the reader is interpreting those patterns.

And… energy has NO limitations. It isn’t bound by time and space. It doesn’t have to conform to gravity. Energy is anywhere and everywhere. A thought can be sent to the other side of the world instantly. A dream can bring two people together who have never met before. That is the magic of the unseen world!

So when you have a long distance reading… you may not be right there. But your spirit is!

Psychics Are Human Too

There is a lot of pressure that comes with working in a spiritual field. You have people who pass judgment on you constantly… either your being laughed at because you believe in such kooky things, or your being judged for being in league with the Devil, or you are considered a scam artist. It’s sad that there is so much hate and judgment sent toward such a beautiful thing. But they say that the darkness seeks to dim the light.

Recently spiritual teacher, author and psychic/medium, Sylvia Browne, passed away. She was such a beautiful light in the vast community of spiritual leaders and teachers. Her candor and wit were unparalleled and her writing touched many. She was often under fire for her matter-of-fact style and her abrasive tone. And also for her highly publicized inaccurate predictions.

What is so sad is that she dedicated her life to helping people. She did readings for years for public audiences, she wrote so many books on the subject of the after life and lectured all over the world…. All in an attempt to lesson the blow of being on this earth! But in the end she has been mocked and degraded by people claiming she is a fake and that she, “Should’ve seen it coming!”

I want to say that there is no psychic/reader/medium/intuitive who is 100%… not one! There are some readers who are better than others. There are some readers who are better at certain subjects than others. And there are some readers who are just having a bad day! Readers are human… they are not infallible, or all knowing. To put that pressure on someone is ridiculous and it takes away your personal power.

And the fact is… a reader can only access the information that 1.) They are meant to share at that time, and 2.) That you allow them to see because it’s your energy they are tapping into… you are the key to your personal universe. A reading is not meant to map out your life and tell you how to live. A reading is meant to affirm, guide and direct you… and you should always test it against your own intuition.

Now, I will not say that I know Sylvia Browne’s heart or her personal intentions. I don’t know if she had people’s best interest in mind, or if she was being deceptive. I don’t believe that she was… I met her and she was warm, inviting and extremely loving. But I cannot speak for anyone else. I can say that I find her writing very inspirational, and a very good place for people to begin their spiritual journey.

The lesson we can all learn from her passing is that we need to empower ourselves and use our own intuition and judgment whenever asking anyone for advice… and that we are all human and prone to mistake… and sadly, that people like to focus on the bad and completely negate the good.

My prayer is that all the hate and judgment dissipates and that people see things with brighter more loving eyes. I know she is probably living it up on the Other Side…

And, Just remember that psychics are human too!

Forget the Crystal Ball! How Tarot Can Deepen Your Personal Insight

Today Brigit of Biddy Tarot is visiting! What a wonderful, and insightful treat. Brigit is the author of, Tarot Foundations: 31 Days to Read Tarot with Confidence and an extraordinary teacher. I hope you enjoy her contribution :-)

What’s the first thing that comes to mind when you hear the words, “Tarot Card Reader”? Crystal balls? Gypsies? Psychic powers? Crushed velvet? 1800 numbers? All of the above?

Sure, that all exists, but it doesn’t have to be this way.

Many ‘normal’ people are using the Tarot cards on an everyday basis for self-development and personal insight. Crystal balls and crushed velvet don’t even come into the equation.

You want to know why you’re feeling ‘lost’? Why your relationship isn’t working like you want it to? How you can improve your work situation? How you can be the person you really want to be? All of these types of questions are perfect for the Tarot.

The Tarot has this innate power to be whatever you want it to be. In fact, Tarot can be used as a tool for:

  • Spiritual guidance
  • Understanding the present
  • Learning more about yourself
  • Exploring mythology and symbolism
  • Personal growth and development
  • Solving problems or dilemmas
  • Earning an income as a professional
  • Making important decisions
  • Validating a gut feeling
  • Daily or weekly guidance
  • Self-examination and psychoanalysis
  • Empowerment
  • Meditation and introspection
  • Developing your psychic abilities or intuition
  • Creative thinking

Using the Tarot for Self-Development and Personal Insight

One of the most powerful uses of the Tarot is for self-development and personal insight. This can be on a very deep level, such as using just the Major Arcana cards in a Tarot reading to understand your current life lessons and your inner purpose and meaning. Or it may be on a more day-to-day level as you figure out the solution to a current dilemma or problem.

To use the Tarot cards for personal insight, try some (or all) of these activities:

Draw a Card a Day

Draw one card at the start of the day asking, “What do I need to know about today?” Think about what this card is telling you – what events or situations to expect, what you can learn during the day, what you need to watch out for, where your best opportunities lie, etc. At the end of the day, reflect on how this card related to your actual experience and take note of what you have learned. Over time, you will form an even stronger personal connection with your cards and you will find that your cards offer you profound insight, even on a day-to-day basis.

Get to Know Yourself with the Major Arcana

If you’re feeling ‘lost’ or directionless, then exploring the Major Arcana in relation to yourself can be a very helpful way to rediscover your direction. Use the “Get to Know Yourself with the Major Arcana” questionnaire to ask yourself some of the more deeper questions about your life path. Or, work with each Major Arcana card, tapping into the life lessons that each has to share.

Use Simple One Card Readings

If you’re facing a dilemma or you need insight into a personal situation, use a simple one card reading to provide insight. First, clearly frame your question. Ask, “What do I need to know about….?” or “Where do my best options lie?” or “What do I need to take into account when making this decision?” Then, draw one card, and one card only. Go deep into that card by exploring the symbolism, elemental and numerological associations, and your intuitive feelings. Resist the temptation to draw ‘clarifier’ cards which often only serve to complicate the reading. And resist the urge to keep asking the same question in the hope of finding the answer you want. The key is to stay focused on the one question and the one card.

Meditate with the Tarot Cards

This final activity is incredibly powerful and will help you to build a very strong and personal connection with the cards. By relaxing your mind and taking yourself ‘into’ the card, you tap into your subconscious mind and explore the Universal energies associated with that card on a very deep level. Read more about how to meditate with the Tarot cards on my blog.

So, forget about the crystal ball, my friends! You don’t need it. Instead, draw on the Tarot cards to help you on an everyday basis to develop your personal insight and guide you on your path.
