We choose an experience to have as a soul – a soul having a human experience – in order to grow and learn and expand. We learn best through experiences.
Our birth name has an inner energy: how we choose to feel about ourselves and our life experience internally, and how we process our experiences internally. It also has an outer energy: how we have chosen to be seen by others, in this life.
So, we may feel shy inside, yet others see us as a pillar of strength. We may feel compassionate on the inside, yet others see us as arrogant. We may feel compassionate on the inside, and be seen as the same to others. The combination of inner and outer draws our life lessons and gifts to us, for us to experience in this life.

This is why it is so important for you to ask me the question in the right way. The cards give information in a perceptive, moment-to-moment, factual, and sometimes frustratingly obvious manner. In other words, you could ask a very deep question, and get a very factual and sometimes even seemingly superficial answer. Read the rest of this entry »
During this past week alone, several people from different walks of life have asked me this very question. Yes, anyone can learn, but as some of my Tarot students have shown, it’s the passion you have for Tarot that makes the difference, and that can turn someone into a reader with a difference.
Tarot readings can be used for one’s personal growth only, or for doing readings for self and others. Often individuals learn the Tarot of their own volition, paying particular attention to its imagery and symbolism, as they develop their skill with practice, practice, and more practice.
Once they feel they can trust their higher selves and spirit guides, and feel they are being directed to the symbols and imagery in Tarot, which will kick start the required information to be revealed, they will be confident to do Tarot readings. Read the rest of this entry »
The origin of Tarot cards has been debated for centuries. In 1299 AD in Italy the first appearance of Tarocchi, an Italian card game, was recorded. The cards, and their artistic interpretations, began spreading and evolving throughout Europe.
Historians still debate whether the Tarot evolved from traditional playing cards. Early British history points to this possible evolution. Perhaps the oldest playing cards came from the Middle East.
My understanding is that the imagery on the cards contained hidden meanings (as they do today), because governments saw fortune-telling as practicing magic, which was considered a crime. The Church viewed the cards as blasphemy and a threat against its doctrines. So the ‘true’ meanings of the cards had to be hidden using symbols. Read the rest of this entry »
In my line of work there is often an unhealthy obsession with the concept of evil. It appears we are simply not able to rid ourselves of this ‘thing’ we seem to have for the boogeyman (here in my country known as the tokoloshe).
Just the other day I was listening to a radio psychic scaring the living daylights out of his unsuspecting caller. She just wanted some career advice, but instead he was hell-bent on convincing her that her home was infested with evil entities. His charming co-host also jumped in to offer some old-wives’ cures for getting rid of all the demonic forces. Truth be told, the only disturbance I was picking up on was the fact that the poor, freaked out woman would not be getting much sleep for weeks!
Now, don’t get me wrong. The struggle between good and evil is very, very real. It is a fundamental component of the human condition. It is also the basis of all Creation. It stems from the duality found in every important aspect of our expanding Universe: dark versus light, life versus death, night versus day. Light needs the presence of darkness to be truly visible and meaningful. Read the rest of this entry »
Clairvoyant psychics and mediums have the ability to see images or visions that are hidden from the normal human senses; they see beyond the range of physical eyesight. Clairvoyance literally means clear sight; it is also described as the ‘second sight’, ‘astral vision’, ‘third eye seeing’, or seeing with the ‘eyes of the soul’.
Clairvoyants see these psychic images in their mind’s eye, or with the ‘third eye’. It is further believed by some experts that this gift of inner vision is linked to the pineal gland in the human brain, instead of the optical nerve in the eyes. Read the rest of this entry »
