Hello Beautiful People! I hope life is wonderful for you wherever you are in the world! I wanted to extened an offer to all of you. I receive so many thought provoking questions from my readers, and I want to … Continue reading
Lately I have taken the time to focus on what I’m putting energy into, what I’m intending into my reality. I’ve made a conscious effort to align myself with spirit daily. The more connected I begin to feel the more spiritually … Continue reading
“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 energy is!
…so if you want a reading via phone or email… it will be just as magical as if you were sitting across from me 🙂

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
- 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.

Today is the day that the world will spiral off into oblivion! All of us are going to crash and burn into the sun, and become particles of dust, forgotten in the Universe! NOT!! As romantic as all that sounds, it’s all made up! The world may end at some point, but it isn’t today. In fact, today marks a new beginning.
So now that I’ve disappointed you, let me give my 2 cents on what is happening. This is a time of energetic shifts and fluxuations. We are ending one phase of being and moving into another. For many this will be like shedding their old, worn-out skin and finding a little wiggle room. For the more hardheaded this is going to be a difficult time.
In essence the Universe is under going a metamorphosis, and we are a part of this big, booming change. Fire may not fall from the sky, but a strong surge of energy will eventually permeate everything. For the ones that are riding the waves of change this will seem subtle.
Much like the Death card in the Tarot, this isn’t a true death; it’s more a transformation that leads to an awakening. This is much needed and we’ve been moving toward it for some time. For those of you “New Agers”, you will be able to attest to the fact that in the past 10-20 years spirituality and positive thinking have become more mainstream than ever before imaginable. You can buy Wayne Dyer at Wal-Mart folks! That’s huge.
In the past 5 years I have noticed my clientele has become more and more diverse with a larger number of men coming to visit without hesitation. People are feeling the pull to be aware of their deeper self, to tap into the subtle and ephemeral.
To sum up The End of the World in a nutshell… it goes like this….
What you believe about yourself, and the world and how it all works will be magnified. So get this, if you think that you’re a victim, everything is bad, and nothing ever works out for you… I’m sorry to say, but things are going to get worse. We are moving into prime-time manifestation, baby! If you have dreams, dream them big because doors are going to swing wide open!
With that being said, this may not happen over night, but the change will be noticeable. So be ready, be willing and be happy 🙂
To your gypsy souls,
