So, you know I'm late to the party in starting an email Newsletter to stay connected to the followers of my Medium and Tarot business. It's because I was so freekin' confused, and there seemed to be no simple choice.
So, I put it out there with my guides, in late summer, that I needed to DO this. I needed an email newsletter solution that wasn't going to break the bank, would be easy enough to work with, with free tempates and easy design, so I can finally do this important BUSINESS thing that all responsible business owners are SUPPOSED to do.
About a week after I put this out to the Universe, I sat at a Tarot party with a woman who wasn't even originally supposed to be getting a reading at the party, and she told me about Sendfox. (It was a strange thing where her reading turned into us talking about business, and her suggesting this for me when I lamented that I was feeling like I lost out on 10 years of email contacts.)
When the Universe speaks, how else is a witch to respond??? I mean, come ooon.
So, I looked into it and.... I love it!
Sendfox was a one time purchase that has already paid for itself. (I was really having a difficult time thinking about paying for mail chimp every month, forever and ever. You'll break even with Sendfox in about 4 months or so, compared to having to do a monthly payment. That just didn't feel like a good list building strategy.)
It's got easy to use templates, and as long as you aren't spamalicious (I stick to one or two links per Newsletter.) It's all I need. It's perfect for content creators who just want to keep in touch, and let people know what the latest offer is.
It's from AppSumo, which had a surprise bonus that I wasn't expecting. When you buy SendFox, you also get an AppSumo account... and in the AppSumo back office is a bunch of free classes and courses on all sorts of tech topics. Topics I've seen other people charge you to learn.
So, if you are ALSO behind on getting your Newsletter started (and curating an email list to stay in contact with your clients, followers, subscribers, or customers.) I'm backing SendFox.
I went with the lowest plan, because I'm curating a list of folks who will actually engage with the content. I'm less concerned about big numbers, and more interested in just the actual folks who want to open my emails.
It IS a lifetime usage though, so if you are a content creator who expects they'll need more than the minimum, it's worth it. (Don't forget, this is a business write expense you can write off at the end of the year.)
I found this to be the perfect platform for me, and the low cost pleases my budget. I put out a newsletter about once a month - I really only have it in place to use with folks incase my social medias get shut down. Having a way to still stay connected is so important to business.
It's also easy for your fans or followers to sign up for, and I found it really easy to follow in the back office.
I believe in the AppSumo course site, there's even a "how to build your list" class you can take for free.
Anyway, this has me feeling MUCH more at ease that I'm not losing contacts that I collect at shows or events (I always do a giveaway draw at events, and ask permission to add folks to my email list.) I've done a LOT of readings for a lot of people over the years, and I wish I had started this sooner!
If you have questions, let's connect! I'm always happy to help a fellow tarot reader, medium, or energy worker!
These are the top 3 books I recommend time and time again to New & Experienced Tarot Readers.
#1 Madame Pamita's Magical Tarot
I've been reading tarot for over 27 years, and there are a LOT of books out there. What ever deck you choose, be sure to get one that comes with a big book so you can learn the in's and out's of that particular deck. BUT in addition to that book, I recommend Madame Pamita's Magical Tarot for both new and experienced tarot readers.
The focus of this book is teaching you how to use tarot in your everyday witchcraft or spells, which makes it amazing for experienced readers. However, there are so many small digestible hints about each card, that I find it a very good resource for beginners. Lots of little extras about each card in this book.
Ethics in Energy Medicine by Heidi Light
Ethics in Energy Medicine by Heidi Light is on the required reading list for anyone who takes a class or course with me in learning to read tarot (The Intuitive Tarot Program), or in learning how to grow a tarot business (Tarot Marketing Mastery.)
It's not a very big book but it is packed with some important information that I feel is not addressed enough in most energy work modalities, and in psychic or tarot businesses.
Before you start to worry about marketing, your Instagram account and doing reels, or how you are going to reach more tarot or reiki clients, get this book into your hands.
There are really important lessons on paying attention and staying conscious of using ethics in energy work or metaphysical work for money.
The Seat of the Soul by Gary Zukav
Although I first read this book as a recommendation for spiritual self help, what has happened through the years is seeing it become the baseline for all the councelling, talk therapy, or guidance that comes with reading tarot or giving energy readings.
I find a copy of this just about any time I hit a thrift store, but you can buy a newer version on Amazon with chapter notes and follow along questions.
There are parts of it that are a little dated, and at times the author talks about God (I generally changed the word to "The Universe" or "Source" so I could get the message without my past hang ups around the word God. It worked.) but there is some highly recommended info in The Seat of the Soul that can help you round out your readings and respectfully add the element of coaching to your readings.
These are the books I end up recommending the most to folks who are readers and come to me for classes or programs. Find these, and other books, tarot decks, and products I use and recommend here: The Little Witch Recommends
How to get a Text Message tarot reading for free, and how to use it wisely.
I've been using this system for years - Seriously, about 20 years I've worked with it. They've had this free tarot reading offer for ages, but the trick is that you get 3 minutes, so here's how to use it wisely.
Before you even hit the button for the free reading, have your thoughts in order. What is really the centre of what you'd like to know? What's the most important question to ask and have answered. I know this sounds simple, but if you think about it, you can get your answer in the free session.
Type out your tarot question before hand on the device you're going to use to connect with your IM Tarot reader or psychic. And then COPY it, so that you can paste it into the chat. It makes no sense if you are spending on a per minute basis that you spend half of it typing with your thumbs.
The next thing to do is click the button for your Free Reading. If there's an offer there for 10 minutes for 1.99 (US) take my advice and TAKE IT. Trust me. You'll want to have those extra minutes at a discount to flush out your questions.
When choosing a reader, you absolutely want one that you feel like you connect with, but ALSO, look at their rates. More doesn't necessarily mean better! And also, if you feel like in that moment you NEED more answers, you'll be able to easily add extra minutes in a manner that fits into your budget.
If I am online and taking Instant Messaging chat, that means I'm ready to go. I've got my cards out and I'm sitting at the computer waiting for you to hit the call button above. You'll see that the button is either Taking Calls or Away.
I log on when I'm compelled to on this site for text readings, and seriously sit here and pull tarot cards for you, and then type out what the cards and your guides have to say on it.
I don't use a talk to text program. I type about 75 words per minute. I have the cards pre shuffled, and cut them and lay them out quickly when you drop your question. So there's no super long pauses for shuffling during these IM readings.
Sometimes these are called DM Tarot readings also, but if you are accessing it on your phone it's really does work just like and Instant Message or a Text Message.
Who would want a Text Message Reading?
This usually isn't the preferred method of getting a reading for most folks. But there are times when a text message reading works best.
Hope this blog was helpful in guiding you to making the most of your readings!
The Little Witch is going to be at the Port Cafe for a super special "Dinner & A Medium" Night. A unique experience and a night of curious fun for the Cafe patrons.
The Port Cafe, located on Georgian Bay in Port McNicoll, contacted Lori-Grace to do this special evening after searching for local Psychics on Google. They were requesting a "Theresa Caputo" style event, and The Little Witch agreed that it would be a perfect time to do it! The date was set for September 25, 2022, and sold out by word of mouth in two days.
All the tickets are sold, but there is another evening in the works already, as the Port Cafe has been getting consistent phone calls asking if tickets are still available for the event. Both Port Cafe and The Little Witch will have information about the next event on their Facebook pages.
The space is perfect for this event, as it's intimate enough that everyone will be able to see and hear the Psychic Medium clearly, but the small diner has enough room for the Psychic reader to pace around the room and see everyone clearly to deliver the spirit messages. It's also small enough that anyone should be able to record their readings on their devices.
LorLori Grace has some very specific ways she does Medium work, so that she doesn't feel like she's cheating, and so the clients attending the dinner event also feel they are getting a true medium experience. A copy of the "how to prepare for a medium reading" is hanging on the Port cafe cork board for all to read before the event, and was also posted on Lori-Grace's facebook page.
Lori-Grace lives in the small town of Midland, on beautiful Georgian Bay. Known locally as "The Little Witch,", she has also been Nicknamed "The Mother of Witches" due to her mentorship of young and new folks on their witchcraft journey, that attend or take her classes at the School of Witchery. And also for all the young and new folks through the years that she's councelled and guided with her Spirit Guided Tarot Readings.
Lori-Grace has 27+ years of experience serving the Town of Midland with Spirit Guided Tarot readings, Psychic Medium readings, and teaching classes to curious folks.
If you are curious about having Lori-Grace attend your event, for this sort of Medium and Dinner event, you can contact her here using the form on this blog.
Everyone loves an in person tarot reading! Wand n Cauldron is presenting The Little Witch on Friday September 16, and Saturday September 17th for walk in sit down reads. Come take a peek in the Witch Cauldron near you, and see what the future holds!
Lori-Grace will be accepting clients during these special days on a first come, first served basis on both days inside the metaphysical shop in Midland Ontario. It's a unique opportunity at this Witch store!
Usually Lori-Grace books by appointment, and for this weekend the folks that are coming in by chance are still encouraged to prepare for their readings. Writing down your question before hand and knowing how to use the voice recorder on your cell phone before you sit will help you make the most of your visit. You can read this tarot note to word your tarot question well before sitting with The Little Witch at Wand n Cauldron.
The Little Witch always brings several different tarot card decks for clients to choose from, but Lori-Grace also uses clairvoyancy during these readings to get the messages from your spirit guides to you, usually they are the messages that you haven't been able to divine on your own but that Guides or Angels or Ancestors need you to hear.
We're creeping into Spooky Season now, and although most wait until it gets closer to Halloween, I can tell you we are into that beginning energy right now. The leaves are starting to turn, the air is cooling, and we are absolutely feeling the earth winding down.
This makes it a perfect time to begin your planning and get some clarity by getting your questions answered with help of Spirit and Higher Self.
Try to come as early as you can to make sure you get your in person psychic reading. The witchy shop is open on these days from 12pm to 5pm, but the last reading will be started at 4:30pm.
We look forward to meeting you there! Wand n Cauldron Witch Shop is located at 397 Manly Street, at the back of the driveway.
If you can't make Friday or Saturday, Regular in person readings by appointment in the Midland Ontario area.
Summer is always busy with parties and events for this Psychic Medium, and most of my readings and classes are done in person until September!
Summer was all about travelling around for readings and psychic medium events. From Owen Sound to Parry Sound, the cars got some kilometers on them this summer! So man bachelorette parties, so little time! lol.
So, here we are, and today while setting up my newest Mentorship Program, I thought to myself "Oh yeah, my Witchy Blog!"
So, what's new?
I've re-launched my Learn to Read Intuitive Tarot program this spring, through my School of Witchery. and folks are really enjoying that they have the opportunity to learn at their own pace or have one on one Zoom or in person classes with me for 6 weeks. It's been a real pleasure to watch those students grow! Some of The Original group that learned with me in the summer of 2021 are now ready for growing their businesses, with their confident readings.
I'm also right now in the MIDDLE of Launching the Tarot Marketing Mastery Program that guides Tarot Readers, Psychic Mediums and Energy Workers to build their business into a more than full time pay in part time hours business.
(I know, I'm probably preaching to the choir here, but the folks who are connecting with me in the program are happy to learn how my SLOW months are $3000, and the regular months are more in the $5000 to $6000 range, working about 10 hours a week... And doing this from a place where folks find them without begging or burning out.)
Although September seems to want to be dedicated to the Coaching and Mentorship programs (everyone wants to learn how to talk to spirits and spirit guides before Halloween comes!) I do have a few dates in September at the Wand n Cauldron in Midland Ontario. Although I prefer appointment bookings, on occasion I will have drop in times. You can keep an eye on my Facebook page for updates.
I'm also booked in September for a "Dinner and a Medium" night at Port Cafe in Port McNicoll, Ontario, where I'll be doing Medium readings for some of the folks who come to dinner, and teaching a little mini class so that everyone gets a reading.
My schedule is already filling up for October and November with Spooky Halloween events. I'll be visiting Cambrian College in Sudbury in both months for in person readings for the Students (so exciting!).
I'm also booked to be at Events Horizon Hobbies on King Street in Midland for their Hallowe'en night celebrations, and the next day for Samhain. I'll be doing quick 1 card and 3 card draws there for the crowd!
Melissa of Wand n Cauldron and I are also cooking up a very special evening in October for Table Tipping and Tarot, in the Witches Haunted House! This is going to be a very small but very exciting eve.
Wand n Cauldron dates for Spirit Guided Tarot Readings are:
Friday September 16 and Saturday September 17, 2022
and I'm there again on
Friday September 30th and Saturday October 1st, 2022
Wand n Cauldron is located at 397 Manly Street in Midland, and only open during certain hours. If you are looking for a reading there, email me directly.
So, Life is Good!
There are still dates available for you to get your personal spooky season reading, a few weekend times for parties left. And if all else fails, there's always the occasional early morning or evening for Zoom calls. (you know, so I can be in jammy pants. It's important to be comfy for Spirit Guided Tarot and Psychic Medium readings. )
I'm Lori-Grace, The Little Witch, and I'm looking for all the excellent tarot readers out there who are ready for MORE.
This is more than working for someone else, this is creating a real business based around your Tarot skill (or psychic skill, or energy work too.) and earning full time pay, in part time hours.
I'm doing it, and I've been doing it consistently for over 3 years. It took me 10 years to learn everything that finally clicked in place, and now I have the SYSTEM. And I'll be teaching 13 folks from Canada how to do it. Are you one of the 13?
Over the last 10 years, I've taken so many business courses to put this knowledge together. I've made investments in courses and mentorships with business leaders and I'm sharing ALL OF IT this Autumn in my Tarot Marketing Mastery program.
Spirit has guided me to work with others so that more and more of us are connected from a place of trust and openness - When you work agreeably and openly with others, the energy flows and together we create something even bigger than all of us. This is important healing work that we offer the world, and there are so many excellent readers out there that are virtually HIDING from the folks who NEED their council and guidance.
This is BETTER than being a genie in a bottle telephone psychic, getting paid pennies for what took you years to master. Let me show you how to do this for yourself, but not BY yourself - you'll have a network of other folks who understand your specific challenges as a professional tarot reader.

The Little Witch's Broom is all revved up and ready to travel!
Where oh Where has The Little Witch been?
Well, I had my turn with THAT VIRUS that everyone is bored of hearing about.
Although today, at this time, I'm still coughing and wheezing and doing a lot of annoying throat clearing, apparently I'm not contagious anymore... so...
While I was 'down with the sickness', the appointments kept rolling in and I had to do a lot of "Can we do this later?" email chats. Now, I'm playing catch up.
Last week I had a bunch of corporate and college events that had to be completed, using Zoom, and this week I'm rebooking the folks who booked during the week that I was sick.
We're closing in on being able to meet without so many restrictions, but as I am hosted mainly at Wand n Cauldron in Midland for readings, we'll be going by the shop rules. I'm still only doing medium readings over Zoom at this time. the Wand n Cauldron always has
I am also starting to book summer parties already! We are planning to do the readings out of doors at this point, but sitting outside in summer sounds JUST FINE to me, while the snow is floating around out there. If you are going to be visiting the Midland area and want to have me come and read Spirit Guided Tarot at your party, event or cottage, NOW is the time to secure your weekend! (I know it sounds early, but summer weekends always book up so quickly.)
So, although I've been hiding out a bit because I was ill, I'm back to work just in time for spring break, march break, and better weather!
So, in the US it's spelled "Journaling", and in Canada "Journalling." I've been going back and forth with the word all month, while creating this course!
The School of Witchery is hosted on a site that is a Canadian based site... but my School is only able to charge in USD. So, I've been back and forth in finding a happy medium with words and amounts.
Anyway, the course "How to Create Abundance & Manifestation Through Journaling" is finished and ready. Although I consider it a mini course, it ended up being quite extensive, with several steps and videos, and some advanced practices for creating your now and your future with the power of words.
I really believe that writing it down in this particular way, putting the words to paper, creates and extra level of magick surrounding the practice.
I have seen how to manifest money, how to manifest love, how to create abundance in so many different topics. Making this a part of your daily routine in the way I have used it, and how I've taught journalling, can manifest what ever it is your are desiring... But also help you see a lot of other bonuses in your day to day life.
Some things can manifest instantly, if you're lined up with it, and a sure way to do this is to play with the power of it first, with things that you're not really emotionally attached to or wanting so badly... just as proof that you CAN.
The course is a self paced video class, but if you need extra time with me 1-on-1 afterwards, we can arrange that, to help you get complete clarity on how you can make writing down your desires in this particular fashion turn into abundance, money, love, or anything else you are wanting!
