I was in the tub, when a BIG THOUGHT occurred to me. WHAT IF our life purpose was something that just sort of happened in the natural flow of being a good human being? It wasn't something we had to search for, or work hard at. What if it were something that just sort of happened while we were in the natural flow of living our lives everyday.
I thought about running threads through my life. How different people have touched my life, and also about the lives I have touched in just being me, in the right place at the right time.
And then I thought, WHAT IF, in those moments that felt small to me, I had actually 'completed' my big life purpose. And all the rest is gravy. All the rest is just to have fun and celebrate all the world has to offer. Even if that is as simple as a nice hot bath, or the sun on your face, or the best Ruben Sandwich you've ever eaten.
What if it were really this simple? Doesn't that idea just free you up completely? It certainly takes the pressure off to perform, to struggle, to over think everything. (I am totally guilty of that.)
I'd love to hear your thoughts on the idea.
It's nearly New Years Eve as I sit and write. We're in the funny spot, the week between Christmas and New Years, where I have a challenging time remembering what day it is and where I'm supposed to be... more so than usual.
I've been watching a LOT of the show Outlander, which feels like a holiday indulgence... sitting and watching Netflix, with no spellwork embroidery in my hands. It's making me think a lot about time travel, and magic, my herb work that I've put aside for family festivities. It's got me thinking about the year to come.
This is the time of year that I get a lot of reading requests for what's coming up in the new year. 2018 feels like it's going to be special, that it's made for personal victories for the individual, if you are ready to be patient with yourself through the healings that will be presented.
Those healings will look different for everyone, and will be tailored to put you just beyond your comfort zone. But, just passed that fine line awaits some beautiful reward.
That's what 2018 is feeling like, for me. That's the messages I get from The Dudes. (My spirit guides. They picked me. They know me. haha.)
Another thing that I'm finding I'm doing quite a bit lately is attracting more and more people who are just starting with their own gifts, but don't know what the next step is. Those conversations have been very individual, too. No two witches, or druids, or seers, or readers are alike. I sit and get the messages for the individual with how to proceed with their own growth with their gifts.
The beauty of January and February, for me, is that the air is somehow quieter, the energy is more still. It makes it easier to get crisp and clear messages . There's something more relaxed for me, with readings, at this time of year. I nestle in. There's no long distance drives to Barrie or Orillia for home party tarot readings, less call for bachelorette or home party readings. This leaves me cozy in my office for individual readings.
As always, you can book a personal "what's coming up this year" style reading with me in my office, in Midland Ontario, but we can always do a phone reading, too, if you live long distance from me.
However, if you are also someone who feels like you've got a gift and you don't know how to use it, it would be my pleasure to help guide you through the next steps in your growth. Learning to read cards, learning to perform Reiki, learning to connect with your own spirit guides are all things I can help with!
Happy New Year!

When ever I get inquiries for email readings or in person readings, I always stress to the client to word their question in such a way that gives us both focus, WITHOUT giving your tarot reader any back story or hints. Personally I feel like even a little bit of information can make me feel like I'm cheating.
I like to read as 'blind' as possible, but still give you the option of asking the question that is on your mind.
It is helpful for you to give the reader some sort of question if you truly aren't looking for a general life read. Why? With my readings, I find my guides like to give the spiritual answer. They will always move straight to the spiritual reason for what's happening in your life, and often that's not what I find my clients are in search of!
I find good questions begin with considering what
has been the first thing on your mind to solve, or something that has just been sticking with you. the thought or situation that just won't quit.
The idea here is to pretend that you've already had ALL the story telling with the reader you are sitting down with. You shouldn't have to explain anything. It's the tarot cards job to tell you the answer to your question. I also think it's my job to give you as many confirmations as I can about what it is that you are thinking about, so we know we're in the right place.
We then call this THING on your mind, "the situation."
then, you can form your question using a "who, what, where, when, why" beginning:
"What is most important to know about this situation?"
"What is the best path to follow in this situation?"
"Am I already on the right path?"
"Where can I expect this path to lead?"
"When should I make the change that I'm thinking of?"
"What am I supposed to be learning spiritually from this situation?"
"What is the path of least resistance in this situation?"
"Who is it that I should be looking for?"
"What is the path for the greatest good in this situation?"
"What will happen If I change something in this situation?""What will happen if I do nothing in this situation?""What can I expect as a touchable world outcome in this situation?" (as opposed to spiritual world.)
"should I take action?""Do I chose A or B?"
"If I chose A or B, what is the outcome?"
"How will I know when it is time to take action?"
Questions worded in this way help get us to the heart of your inquiry, without giving the tarot reader any hints.
I hope this note helps you get the most out of your reading, and also helps you feel confident in your choice of readers.
I look forward to reading for you!
Winter is coming!
I'm feeling like it's time to finally get organized to be ready for taking phone calls for tarot readings. Winter is on it's way, my home parties start to slow down, and I'm completely set up to do readings over the phone. There's nothing left for me to do but pick up the phone.
Except... for some reason the idea of getting on the phone breaks me out in a cold sweat. This is strange to write, because the phones are really where I got my start, reading for people who weren't already friends and family.
I've come to realize that what makes me nervous about doing the reads on the phone, is more my worry about the per-minute charge. I feel so RUSHED to shuffle and get the messages as they come, because all the client on the phone hears is silence while that is happening. I don't want people to think I'm just sitting there breathing into the phone as they pay a per minute charge.
So, I do like some sort of contact via email or messaging before a phone call, so that I can walk people through the system and also so that I can forward them my "how to word your question well" note. If the clients are better prepared, we don't waste time trying to figure out what it is they want to know.
Plus, I've got my per minute rate set pretty low, in comparison to the other readers on this specific platform I use. I've done that also to put myself at ease about that money hang up!
My plan is to log on and become available when ever I am home and it's QUIET!
Would you prefer phone readings to email readings, if you were unable to come and sit with me in person?
