In my personal practice I use tea for it’s therapeutic, medicinal and energetic properties. Herbs come from the earth and have a unique energy pattern that can be incorporated into our own to create dramatic shifts.
Recently I discussed how to use teas to repair the aura. Tea can also be used for energetic protection. Just like visualizing white light around you, these teas will activate an energetic barrier that strengthen and sustains your aura.
Ginger is a potent root that has a good kick of flavor. It’s used medicinally to help digestion and to jumpstart your immune system. Ginger makes a great base for most protection teas. Start with a good piece of fresh ginger root that you can grind into a teapot with some hot water.
When using ginger it’s good to start with a little and keep adding to it. Some people find it too strong in large doses. Use it sparingly.
Alone, ginger has a very grounding affect. It pulls the aura in tightly so that nothing is hanging out! And adds a good dense layer of energy around the outside boundaries.
For one pot of tea add 2-3 teaspoons of ground ginger root, to 3 cups of spring water.
Ginger and Sage Tea
Sage is another herb that has become a staple in spiritual cleansing and protection. Sage is best known for its ability to expel negative energy. When used as a tea, sage releases negative energy and fortifies the fibers of the aura.
When sage and ginger are combined it grounds and centers, which helps to keep a clear energy field and adds a boundary of very solid protection.
For one pot of tea add 2-3 teaspoons of ground ginger root, one cup of sage leaves, to 3 cups of spring water.
Ginger and Cinnamon Tea
Cinnamon is a fiery bark that carries a punch of energy. This tends to be a little more aggressive than the more grounded energy of ginger, but the two compliment each other well.
When used a tea, cinnamon will add heat to the Aura and create a shield of “Don’t Touch Me” energy! Add ginger to that mix and you have a double layer of protection. One that blazes bright and one that is very solid.
For one pot of tea add 2-3 teaspoons of ground ginger root, 3 cinnamon sticks, to 3 cups of spring water.
For Any Tea
Let the tea steep for 5-10 minutes before drinking. As the tea steeps pray for divine light to bless the water. You can call on any form of Divinity you feel connected to.
A NOTE ON TEA
Experiment with the above combinations. Each herb could be used alone, or all together. These are just suggestions. Make sure to do your research before ingesting any herbal tea to see if you are allergic or if you have any health issues that may be affected by these.
I hope these techniques offer something for your spiritual practice!
Please, let me know if you have any other questions.

My dear friend Karine from Touched By An Angel Massage Therapy wants to know what she needs to do to move her business forward successfully. So while enjoying a warm cup of tea I focused on Karine, and asked the Universe to give her some insight about what step to take next.
TEA LEAF READING TIP: A tea leaf reading that ask a specific question only addresses the area of time that helps to best answer the question. So in this case the question is dealing with the present and future, so the past will not be address in the cup!
The most prominent image in Karine’s cup is a fairy woman sitting with her wings spreads, holding her knees. A very powerful and significant image. Karine, this is you. You are contemplating the next move, wondering which path to take. This as a sign that a vision you’ve had, or a dream, is a key facet to what you should do next. This fairy is telling you to meditate, which will bring clarity.
The next symbol is a butterfly. Butterflies are beautiful symbols of freedom and transformation. You are now in a process of metamorphosis and the changes you are undergoing now will absolutely lead you in the right direction. The butterfly is telling you to reinvent your image. Close your eyes and ask yourself, “What do I look like now?” You want to show your spirit to the world, not just a 2 dimensional view… show yourself from all sides in vibrant color.
Are you working on a new logo? The butterfly hints at visual representation. So look at logos, letterheads, business cards, web layouts and posters. Again, show how you look now!
The next symbol that appears is a boat. The boat is about staying afloat, and continuing on. Don’t waver on any area of your business, stay true to the dream. Even in the dream evolves; keep the spirit of the original dream alive! The boat also speaks about location. You may find yourself working in a space that is near water, or has a strong connection to water. Is this something that’s already taken place?
The last symbol is the dove. The dove is about love, and faith. Keep your thoughts positive and continue to manifest the life you want. Don’t be afraid to write down your goals and dreams, and to hold yourself to them. Use your vision board practice as a foundation for creating these business shifts you are seeking.
The dove also seems like a literal sign. The dove may appear to you in some form as a “Yes” or “Go Ahead” from the Universe. Keep your eyes open for this as you move forward.
I hope this offers some insight and clarity to your situation. You are on the right path. The energy feels good. I also see a strong male energy that will be significant in the next few months with your changes. Keep on, keep’in on!
Do you have anything to add, readers? Let’s hear what you have to say. Do you see something different in the cup? Or do you have some insight to add based on the symbols I saw?
Don’t be afraid to participate in the learning process! Share your insight. Ask your questions. You can even perform your own tea leaf reading and post a picture of your cup to the FaceBook page, here. We will see what we can see!!

Tealeaf reading is a magical and ancient art. Tapping into the deep, rich world of the psyche giving insight, guidance and creative prompts. Tealeaf reading has its roots in Asia and the Middle East and has been practiced by everyone from Royalty to housewives. It was even considered an insightful pass-time by the Victorian ladies during afternoon tea.
Loose tea leaves form symbols in the bottom of your teacup to tell a story. While enjoying a cup of tea you infuse it with your essence, creating a catalyst that allows the leaves to paint pictures. Once you learn the language of intuition you can string together symbols to comprehend spiritual messages and insights.
Imagination is the pathway to intuition and if you are willing to trust in your creativity you can easily gain insight through tealeaf reading. Once your imagination and intuition intertwine you begin connecting with the Universe.
To Begin: Preparing the cup and drinking the tea
Begin with a bowl shaped teacup, free of interior decoration. The handle and saucer are a must. Always use loose-leaf tea (English breakfast). Enjoy your cup of tea leaving a teaspoon of liquid in the finished cup! Then the cup is swirled, flipped and left to rest.
Exploring the Interior: seeing symbols and the map
The cup is flipped over to explore the interior. The cup is divided into 3 distinct sections, like a map. The bottom=past, the middle=present, and the top to the rim=future. The handle always represents the person being read. Make note of the most prominent symbols
Story telling: What do you see? What stands out?
Largest symbols are the most important. Begin naming what you see. First impression=correct impression. Don’t filter, just make up a story and begin interpreting. Is the cup littered with symbols? Does it have one prominent symbol? Does it have well-developed symbols in each area?

I cleared my mind and began to breathe the scent of Earl Gray deeply. It tantalized my senses. I intently repeated Reena’s question, asking the Universe to give guidance on her path as a Tarot reader.
Peeping into her cup to gain glimpses of insight, I was met by some wildly fascinating characters. Starting from the bottom my vision spiraled around looking over what appeared in black inky blobs against the contrasting white. One symbol led to the next, creating strands of meanings.
In the very bottom appeared a small key, next to a roosting hen. Though I often suggest looking at the most prominent symbols that form in the cup because they are the most important, the smaller ones added to the overall story of Reen’s question.
The key next to the roosting hen is an indicator to me that her skill as a Tarot reader has been with her for a while. She was introduced to the cards, or at least to the psychic world sometime ago, possibly when she was younger. I get the impression that she may have even inherited some psychic abilities from her mother.
Moving to the next symbols in the progression was a Chinese lucky dragon. He was in the bottom (past) of the cup, with a tail that trailed into the middle (present). Lucky dragons are signs of protection, power and success. I believe that Reena took a break from Tarot for a bit of time. Maybe this was by choice. But the dragon indicates that she is being guided to do readings, and by listening her intuition she will find success.
The lucky dragon is also the sign of spiritual guidance. Reena, have you felt drawn to take specific steps toward your Tarot practice? This is a go ahead from your guides to do what feels right. This is also an indicator that her ancestors are communicating with her in spirit.
Next we have the crayfish/lobster. He was tenaciously crawling from the past into the present further highlighting his message as a symbol of emergence. The lobster is a sure sign that there is a sense of awakening happening now. More psychic experiences are the result of meditation and contemplation.
The lobster is urging you, Reena, to stay spiritually protected. I sense a little fear about doing readings. Are you worried that by reading Tarot you will open up to something bigger, or dangerous? Keep putting up your white light. And, wear blue or burn blue candles while doing readings.
Lastly, we find a gong in the future portion of the cup. Next to the Gong appears a diamond (a symbols of success). The gong is a beautiful symbol because it represents success and power. But it also shows a strong connection to sound. I believe that Reena’s Tarot reading will benefit from her learning to trust her clairaudience (psychic hearing).
Many used the gong, as a way of spiritually cleansing people believed that the sound could expel demons. It was also believed the gong could help you communicate with ghost. I see this as a sign to spiritually cleanse yourself, and also to listen to your spirit guides and ancestors. You are clearly clairaudient, Reena! Especially seeing the gong plus the lucky dragon!
Reena, I think your cup definitely indicates the potential for you to be successful as a Tarot card reader. It also offers suggestions for how to gain the success you want! I think this year has a lot of exciting things in store for your practice :-)
I would love to hear everyone’s feedback! What do you see in her cup? What message do you perceive?
