The Tarot tends to rise in popularity during times of great transition here on Earth. If we look back in history, during the Medieval and Renaissance periods, people were drawing upon the wisdom of the Tarot for help and guidance during times of confusion, fear, and uncertainty.

If you are wanting to develop your psychic abilities, making time to practice, and developing your own set of psychic symbols, are key to seeing results. At some point, if you’re consistent, you will start seeing evidence that you are opening up psychically. One of the first things that showed up for me was that I started to have vivid dreams at night that seemed to come true.
I have always kept a dream journal and have always been interested in my dreams. I read a lot of books on dream interpretation and analysis and have always thought that my dreams were trying to tell me something. But when my dreams started playing out in real life, I was quite amazed. And this may be the first area where you can get very clear, concise messages from your intuition – from your dreams.

I started working with the Tarot when I was 14 years old. I read the metaphysical books of the time and wanted to explore my budding intuition. One afternoon at a bookstore, I was drawn to the Rider-Waite Tarot deck – I felt an instant pull to it in particular!
I wasn’t going to the bookstore that day to buy Tarot cards, but once I did I couldn’t put the mysterious deck of cards out of my mind. Once opened, I studied the deck for weeks on end, and I thoroughly enjoyed it. I soon read the cards for others.
The first time I was doing a card spread for myself, my mother walked into my bedroom and told me that my great grandmother also read the cards, as well as tea leaves. It was if she wasn’t surprised her daughter would be interested in reading the cards, yet she didn’t encourage me either. Read the rest of this entry »
Furthermore, confidence is key to whatever you may intend for your day. When we have that confidence, we are more likely to be able to attract those intentions to us more easily. We are able to feel what we want, become deliberate creators and allow what we desire to come into our lives.
When I remember to start with intention and a prayer of asking how can I serve today, my day goes way better and I can stay in a place of feeling centered and calm. I am then able to receive the blessings and abundance that comes with the day. Read the rest of this entry »
Many people come to a Tarot reader wanting to find out about the future. They seem to think that the future is set in stone and so they can be told exactly what is going to happen. They want the reading to “predict the future.” The reality of Tarot is that it offers guidelines. The reader looks at the cards, interprets them, and then tells of the probable outcome.
Many people can read Tarot cards, but to be really good at it does take a practice, and good intuition or psychic ability goes a long way. The best way to learn Tarot is to learn the meanings, hold the cards, shuffle them, and feel what they are telling you. You also need to practice, practice, and practice. The most recommended Tarot deck to start with and learn with is the Rider-Waite Tarot. The pictures are clear and they seem to work best for beginners. Read the rest of this entry »
The editor asked me what type of horoscope I thought the newspaper needed, given that the male readership ratio was so much smaller compared to that of women. I told her that we needed to do a horoscope for males and females of each sign. We needed to break down the walls between men and women, because the newspaper’s advice column seemed to suggest neither sex had a clue about what was going on in the others’ head.
My plan was to write the horoscopes combining elements of Astrology and Numerology, but the meat and potatoes, the predictions within each horoscope itself, would come from me using a different Tarot deck each week. I did an overview for the week ahead, one for males and one for females, in which lot of the astrological elements were taken into account. This was followed by a male and female horoscope for every sign of the Zodiac. Read the rest of this entry »
Recently an client asked me in video chat, “How can you be a psychic and a reverend?” There is nothing wrong with being both a reverend and a psychic. In fact, there are some great advantages to being both. It has been my experience that my work as a psychic and energy healer and as a reverend go hand in hand.
While I grew up in a strictly conservative Catholic household, I knew intuitively there was more to life and spirituality than what I was being taught. To make matters worse, I was attending a Catholic school where I was misunderstood and misjudged. I was always questioning my faith and the wonders of the Universe.
To better understand myself and the yearnings of my soul, to know more about the Universe and the unseen, I had read The Bible all the way through at the age of nine. Read the rest of this entry »
If you sit down quietly, close your eyes and relax, you can see yourself quite clearly. You know yourself relatively well. Even more information and answers lie in your unconscious, but how often do you take time out to deliberately go there?
Step 1: Meditation
Get a notepad and pen. Take an hour to relax in meditation. Drift out of meditation when you have an important realization to write in your notepad. Once you have documented it, go back into meditation for more. Read the rest of this entry »
