Spiritual Tarot & Guidance ~ Transformation ~ 22nd ~ 28th February 2021

The cards for this week are: The 2 of Swords, The Emperor, The 2 of Cups, The Hermit, Judgement & Spirit Keeper of the West.

Hello everyone as always I hope this weeks reading finds you safe and well!

The first of our cards for this weeks Spiritual Tarot & Guidance reading is The Spirit Keeper of the West from the Native Spirit Oracle Deck. This card represents the overarching energy surrounding us, and this weeks reading.

Through this card I feel the Spirit & Angelic realms are reminding us once again to be prepared and open to change, reminding us also once again that change is inevitable and that we should work with it and accept it rather than trying to fight it. We have all over the past year gone through and still are going through some major changes in our lives for example; personally, financially and emotionally.

However I feel the message that the Spirit & Angelic realms wish to bring to our notice through The Spirit Keeper of the North is of a more personal and internal one for us, and speaks of the transformation and growth we have all achieved personally, although it often goes unnoticed by ourselves and others. This growth both on a personal “human” level and on a spiritual one, has come about due to the upheaval that we have all endured over the past months. We are being reminded through this card that almost all change and all growth, almost always come out of turmoil.

The first of this weeks tarot cards is a card repeated from last weeks reading and is the 2 of Swords. The message again is also another timely reminder and fits well as the first card following the Spirit Keeper of the North. The 2 of Swords speaks of the need to make difficult decisions and weighing up all of our options carefully before making them. The Spirit Keeper of the North supports this beautifully as it’s message is also about TRUST in ourselves and us gathering and using our inner resources.

The 2 of Swords is also reminding us that at present we are all in a way “blindfolded” to some extent as it is difficult for us to make decisions when the road ahead is unclear. However I feel the message from these first two cards that the Spirit & Angelic realms wish to draw our attention to is that Sight is not the only sense or gift that we have. If we cannot see a way forward, we can always Trust Ourselves, The Spirit World and Angelic Realms to guide us and we can “Sense” our way forward.

Our second tarot card this week is a Major Arcana card and it is The Emperor. One of the messages that the Emperor brings forward in tarot is of a system bound by rules and regulations and of law and order created by applying rules, regulations, principles and guidelines to specific situations. Something we are all probably more aware at the moment than at any other time in our lives.

However the advice that the Emperor brings forward and I feel is the the advice that the Spirit & Angelic realms wish us to focus on is that we can create calm out of the chaos that surrounds by breaking it down into smaller parts and systematically working out the actions we need to take to resolve the challenges we face. And probably once again without us realising it the message of The Spirit Keeper of the North will ring true, Transformation and growth will have taken place once again!

Our Third and last card for this weeks Spiritual Tarot & Guidance reading is another Major Arcana card and is The Hermit.

The keywords that come to mind with The Hermit card are; Soul-searching, inner guidance and taking time out for ourselves. I personally always advocate this and it’s always there at the ending of my readings as a reminder to you all. We live in a fast paced, hectic, time consuming world. We live life at a far greater, unnatural pace than we are intended to do, and sadly often with dire consequences for some. It not only affects us physically and mentally but also spiritually.

The Spirit & Angelic realms through the Hermit card are also I feel reminding us of the importance of “taking some time out for ourselves”, taking a break from the mundane and sometimes intolerable stress and strain that we can sometimes be placed under. The keyword for this weeks message from the Spirit & Angelic realms and the overarching energy for the reading is “Transformation”. It is often during the times of introspection that our true recognition of ourselves and our own transformation is found and acknowledged, and also where the answers that often evade us to many of our otherwise unsolvable problems lie. I’m sure you have heard myself and other say “The answer you seek lies within”.

The Spirit & Angelic realms are guiding us to find clarity and understanding both of and in our life. We are faced with a multitude of challenges and decisions everyday. Through this weeks reading we are being asked to slow down, take the time necessary to make any important decisions, don’t rush. We are being guided to trust ourselves and our own intuition if the road ahead is not clear. Accept that change is inevitable, do not run away from it or try to avoid it, change is what brings about our own personal and spiritual, transformation and growth.

The whole world is going through a massive period of change and transformation and so are we as individuals on both a human and spiritual level. How we approach it is up to us. Do we fight it or accept it? That is a decision that each of us on an individual level will have to make.

“Transformation is an ongoing process that tends to appear ordinary, when, in fact, something extraordinary is taking place.”

I will say it again as I always do, take some time out for yourself, It is allowed !”

Spiritual Tarot & Guidance 18th ~ 24th January 2021

The cards for this week are: Death, The Hierophant, The Knight of Cups, New Beginnings & The Wolf

Hello everyone as always I hope this weeks reading finds you safe and well!

The first card in this weeks Spiritual Tarot & Guidance reading is the Death Card and is sometimes the most feared and misunderstood card in Tarot. Although sometimes the card can mean death and we most certainly have had a lot of it over the past months, it is not the only meaning behind this card.

May I please say at this point that my sympathies and condolences go out to all of you who have lost loved ones during the current pandemic and for any other reasons. It has touched us all in one way another including myself.

The more positive and spiritual meaning behind the Death card is one of endings and new beginnings. For change to happen something must come to an end. Change is something that is inevitable whether we choose to ignore it or try to avoid it, it will happen, it is the way we both learn and grow and it is something that we need to embrace and not fear. This I feel is the message that the spiritual and angelic realms are sending us through this card.

To support the Death card we have then been given the first of this weeks energy cards. The card of New Beginnings. It is the first of the Major arcana cards in the Psychic Tarot deck and the equivalent of the Fool card in most other tarot decks.

Our next card in this weeks Spiritual Tarot & Guidance reading chosen as always with the help and support of the spirit and angelic realms is also a Major Tarot arcana card and is the Hierophant. The Hierophant is sometimes known in tarot as the spiritual teacher.

His appearance in a reading can suggest that we are sticking to tried and trusted ways of doing things because it’s the way it’s always been done or maybe we stick rigidly to our beliefs because it is the way we have been taught or guided to in the past. For example staying in a job or career because it’s what our parents want us to do, even though we are not happy in the job and really wanting to do something else that we would love to do.

Our 3rd and final tarot card for this weeks reading is the Knight of Cups. The Knight of Cups is known and often recognised by tarot readers as the true romantic, and while for some of you there may be a new romance or rekindling of a present or previous one, I feel the main message the spirit and angelic realms wish to draw our attention to for the purpose of this reading are his other qualities. These qualities are his appreciation of beautiful things including mother nature herself. He shares and gives his love freely to others, he is imaginative and creative and follows his dreams.

Our final card for this weeks Spiritual Tarot & Guidance reading and the second of this weeks energy cards is the Wolf. The message behind this card is about using our instincts. The Wolf card I feel was chosen by the spirit and angelic realms to support the message of the Hierophant and the Knight of Cups. The Wolf can travel alone or in packs, it is a free spirit and follows no set rules or conformities.

The Wolf is loyal and protective towards his family but relies on his own instincts to survive. He does not always follow the pack although he knows there is safety in numbers. He relies on his instincts before acting or making his decisions and trusts that his instincts will help him make the right choice.


I feel the overall message that the spirit and angelic realms are wishing to portray to us in this weeks message is our need to identify and accept that change is inevitable. We need to accept that our lives are, have and always will change in some way during our current lifetime on this earth. Everyone’s life has been affect by change greatly in some way over the past months. The advice from the spirit and angelic realms is to accept it gracefully, flow with it instead of fighting against it. This is their message I feel through both the Death card and the one of New Beginnings.

Through the remaining cards The Hierophant, The Knight of Cups and The Wolf. I feel that we are being asked by spirit to not always “follow the pack” while their maybe safety in numbers it is not always the right path to follow. They wish us to be like the Wolf and the Knight of Cups to be nurturing and loving towards ourselves, our loved ones, our fellow man and the planet on which we live. They remind us that humans are not the only creation that inhabit this planet.

We are being guided as we have been before by the spirit and angelic realms also to take note of the Hierophant and not allow ourselves to get stuck in our old ways and habits of doing things because it’s the way it’s always been done, or because it was the way we were taught or told that it is the right way or only way. They are asking us to be again to like the wolf, to use and trust our own instincts, our own intuition to guide us before making decisions and moving forward with our plans.

Their message through the Hierophant is that once you have made your decision to act in any way, make sure that any advice you may need or follow is from a reliable source. Remember there are always those who “think” they know. But they may be an unreliable source. Use your Wolf instincts and intuition, and do not always follow the pack.

I hope that this weeks Spiritual Tarot & Guidance reading has helped and given you support in some way. The messages from the Spiritual & Angelic realms are always bought to you on an energy of love, compassion and understanding.

I will say it again as I always do, take some time out for yourself, It is allowed !”

Until next time…. please take care and stay safe.

Spiritual Tarot & Guidance 28th December 2020 ~ 3rd January 2021

Spiritual Tarot & Guidance 28th December 2020 ~ 3rd January 2021

The cards for this week are: The Wheel of Fortune, 6 of Swords, The High Priestess, Truth & The Island.

Hello everyone as always I hope this weeks reading finds you safe and well!

Our first card for this weeks Spiritual Tarot & Guidance Reading is The Wheel of Fortune. Some of the meanings behind this card when it appears include Good Luck, Destiny, Life Cycles. Karma and a turning point.

The Second card for this weeks reading is the 6 of Swords. This card represents periods of Transition, The need to release old baggage and upcoming change.

Our 3rd card for this weeks Spiritual Tarot and Guidance Reading was the High Priestess. The High Priestess represents Intuition, knowledge and the subconscious mind.

Our two Oracle cards for this weeks reading are Truth and The Island (Solitude).

I feel that the message from the spirit and angelic realms in this weeks Spiritual Tarot & Guidance reading is about us as individuals and how we approach our earthly life itself. It’s a message about self-love, compassion, self-belief, in essence it is about us.

The Wheel of Fortune is about CHANGE and you don’t need me, the spirit world or the angelic realms to tell you that right now, at this moment in time we are all facing change, the world over. Change is something that a great many people fear, it is one of their worst nightmares because they are creatures of habit. They like to be in full control and when change comes along, their lives and routines are upset, they have no idea what the change may involve, they panic because they are no longer in control. So for those who cling to stability, the Wheel of Fortunes arrival can be a big shock to the system.

The other name sometimes given to the Wheel of Fortune is The Wheel of Karma because it can represent and remind us of the saying “what goes around, comes around”. I feel that this is the emphasis that the spirit world are placing on this card for this reading. They know that the whole world is facing constant change at the moment. All of us are wandering where we are heading? what is going to happen? when will all this come to an end?

A lot of people are turning against one another, families, partners, friends colleagues, they are becoming frustrated and fearful. The Spirit World are aware of this and reminding us through the Wheel of Fortune that if you are hateful, hurtful or nasty to someone, then that is what you will get in return. If you are loving, kind, compassionate and understanding then that is also what you will receive in return.

“In this earth, in this soil, in this pure field let’s not plant any seed other than seeds of compassion and love.”

Rumi

During this upheaval it is very easy for us to lose sight of our roots of who we really are and to give up on our plans for the future. It’s difficult to see a way through if you have lost someone you love, lost your job or your business. The Spirit World are asking you through the 6 of Swords to just take a step back from your past, your immediate problems and dare to look forward to your future.

Yes there may be times the spirit world are saying when it’s hard to see a way though, to see any potential for the future. There may be need for tough decisions and compromise, but if you are willing to leave behind what no longer serves you, to shed what you no longer need, including outdated beliefs and habits, you can move forward away from what was…. to what can be!

To help us with this process the spirit and angelic realms then gave us The High Priestess. They are reminding us through her to trust our intuition, our gut instincts and not get caught up in negative habits or negative thinking. They remind us through her that the answers that allude us during periods of panic, desperation, fear and depression are there within us if we can just calm and quieten our minds and listen to ourselves and allow our intuition to flow.

In support of the High Priestess they then gave us two Oracle Cards they are Truth and The Island. The Island card also bears the words Solitude. As the High Priestess tells us, the truth and the answers that we search for are within us. These can be found during periods of Solitude. The Island card is supporting her in this message.

The Truth card can symbolise a wake up call, the call that the whole world, all of us have received during 2020. It is a sign that the way we do things needs to change, our thinking needs to change. During these changes we are all receiving lessons, we need to recognise and accept those lessons, we need to learn from those lessons as The Wheel of Fortune turns if we are to create the positive future that we desire.

To do this we need to listen to ourselves and this is where the Island card comes in to support not just the High Priestess, but all of the other cards in this weeks Spiritual Tarot & Guidance reading. If you look at the card you can see just one solitary tree alone in what is relative darkness. But the tree is illuminated by a beam of light and it is in full bloom. The tree you could say is in isolation just as we have been, and in some cases still are, and may well be again in the future.

We are reminded by the tree that if we use that time of isolation in a positive way, look at those periods of isolation as solitude, as an opportunity to go within and be with just ourselves, away from the fear, worry and negatives energies so rife throughout the world right now. We can then regenerate ourselves, re-charge and cleanse ourselves. We can use the time to take the message from the 6 of Swords and take stock of and sort out our lives, find our own Truth and our own true self again. We can then be better prepared for whatever the turn of the Wheel of Fortune brings and blossom in our own light… Just like The Tree.

I hope that this weeks Spiritual Tarot & Guidance reading has helped and given you support in some way. The messages from the Spiritual & Angelic realms are always bought to you on an energy of love, compassion and understanding.

I will say it again as I always do, take some time out for yourself, It is allowed !”

Until next time…. please take care and stay safe.

A Meditation Technique to Help You Unwind

A Meditation Technique to Help You Unwind - Unless you're an extremely laid-back individual, you probably could use a good meditation technique. The vast majority of people spend their lives wound tighter than a three-dollar watch.

A Meditation Technique to Help You Unwind

Unless you’re an extremely laid-back individual, you probably could use a good meditation technique. The vast majority of people spend their lives wound tighter than a three-dollar watch. Unfortunately, that type of stress is not only unhealthy physically; it also blocks any creativity; puts stress on relationships and makes your life miserable.

There are several different types of meditation techniques to relax both your mind and your body, and they all involve emptying your mind and thinking about nothing. That’s pretty difficult to do. It’s much like telling someone not to think of a pink elephant. The first thing that comes into their mind’s eye is a pink elephant.

Before you begin any technique, get into comfortable clothing and a comfortable chair that supports your back. Turn down the ring volume on the phone so you have no distractions. If you have children, request they give you 25 minutes of alone time or have a spouse take them to another part of the house.

You need to have a table in front of you. Put a candle in a holder on the table. Make certain that you have a heat and flame resistant plate under the candle. Light the candle and if you’d like, turn out the other lights. That’s not necessary but it does remove distractions. There’s no need to sit in cross-legged position. Frankly, for most people that is a bit uncomfortable. Sit with your feet flat on the ground, side by side. Lay your hands comfortably in your lap.

Stare into the flame of the candle and only focus on the flame. As you do this, slowly breathe in through your nostrils, hold it a few minutes and exhale through your mouth. Do not think of anything but the flickering light of the candle. Watch it as it dances and moves. Inhale slowly and exhale slowly. Allow your body to relax with each exhaling breath. Feel your body relaxing as you watch the dancing light of the candle.

Since you’re simply placing your focus on the candle, not making any judgments as to how it should move, whether you’re breathing properly or if you’re relaxed enough, you’ll find that you’ll begin to feel more refreshed. If you wish, you may close your eyes. If you’ve watched the candle intently enough, you’ll be able to see it dancing even with your eyes closed. After ten minutes, you can either continue or end your meditation. This meditation technique is quick to learn and helps you empty your mind and wind down.

Other meditation techniques use deep breathing and focus on each breath. Unfortunately, many of these require that you learn specific breathing techniques and often take a bit of time to conquer. Watching a lighted candle brings immediate focus and its movement helps your mind and body relax. You owe it to your health and those that love you to learn a meditation technique to use each day. You’ll find your attitude improves, but also you’ll reap healthy benefits.

Riding the storm of life ~ Inner Peace

Inner peace is all about coping. If the unpleasant and painful memories remain too long with us, we will not make the transition that we are called to make from restless non-acceptance to quiet acceptance.

Riding the storm of life ~ Inner Peace

We do not have to go to the foot of the Himalayas to attain inner peace. We also do not need to renounce everything before attaining quietude. Instead, we can live day to day in inner quietude. If we look at all of life’s experiences and their disturbing content with inner eyes, the disturbances we undergo will remain at the periphery. Deep down there will be an emotional quiet.

Inner peace is all about coping. If the unpleasant and painful memories remain too long with us, we will not make the transition that we are called to make from restless non-acceptance to quiet acceptance.

We are in a win-win situation when we accept the challenge of living, discriminating how far we should go along a certain track, who we should relate to in more intimate terms and those we need to distance because their values are so desperate from our own.

If we are self-sacrificing and wise, we will remain calm and tranquil despite the provocations we face. We do not avoid difficult people and circumstances, but learn to deal with them by distancing ourselves from them and building on relationships that bring happiness.

Withdrawal is an option but it would lead to disengagement and non-involvement and that does not bring required results. The inner peace we crave comes after traversing a long passage. Learning with experience, we begin to take things in our stride. It’s not all that easy, though.

There are many ways to cultivate and build on inner peace. We could set some time aside daily for prayer and meditation. Disproportionate understanding can blow up the way we perceive things. We could spend quiet time in the garden, in silent communication with plants and trees. We endure life’s storms and learn to absorb its shocks and we find that we are, in fact, in the midst of all these circumstances, communing with God, a tangible presence in our lives.

Coping is not just reactive, it’s proactive too. We pick up the mantle thrown to us and practice patience, detachment, endurance, serenity and acceptance of all that comes our way. To overcome obstacles and difficulties we need to develop coping skills that encompass mental and spiritual needs.

The only difference between the wise and the foolish is that the wise learn to cope with reality and transform it and the foolish get swept away by the ups and downs of life.

Life is uncertain; it is unpredictable. It is also unfair, it seems. But in learning to cope with all the ups and downs of life, we begin to live a full life.

There is the parable of the wise man in the gospels who built his house on rock. It withstood all the rains and storms. On the other hand, the man who built his house on sand watched his house get destroyed in the rain and storm. Hence, we need to cultivate rock-like resilience and welcome attributes that will help us to cope. The reward of inner strength is inner peace. Right here, in your living room, your workplace in your family will find inner peace. We do not have to look too far.

Once we learn to cope, the going will be easier and there will be no need to hide our real selves. We will be able to stand up and meet life on our own terms. And experience the fulfilment of a pilgrimage well weathered.
