Psychics- Mindfulness Coaches Incognito

Today someone I know had a psychic reading done with a psychic friend of mine. She left feeling empty, unsatisfied, and scammed. It’s sad to say that her experience is certainly not unique. How many of us have had a disappointing psychic reading before? I know I sure have!

My Experiences

My first Psychic experience was an Akashic Record Reading. I went in very open minded hearing but when she told me the truth very bluntly, I left in emotional shambles because her reading did not resonate with me. I also did not feel that she told me enough of anything, and what she did tell me was very vague.

My second Psychic experience was with a ruff and gruff woman who ironically is now going to be co-worker of mine. She spent the entire reading pointing out all of my flaws and sounded quite angry with how I’ve handled things in my life. She predicted some things as well, and some have come true, some have not, and some have yet to manifest. I was hoping for a more predictive kind of reading, and not a telling-off.

Many family members of mine have had readings over the years, and I’ve noticed that since they are quite intuitive themselves, they leave the readings not believing the psychics and feeling like it was a waste of time. Psychics have a hard time reading intuitive people because they sense they are being watched very closely which causes them to stumble.

Presence

The reason why I’m sharing this is because most of us have this notion that a Psychic will look into the future and tell us every little thing that is going to happen. The reality is, most Psychics can only see bits and pieces of your journey in the present. There is no true way of predicting events because the future is malleable. Yes, we all have a destiny that has been carved into stone, but the stone may chip, break, or get etched with images. Basically, as we change, so does the journey to our destiny. No Psychic can tell you where you’ll end up, only a vague description of how you might get there.

It’s when we aren’t getting the results we think we deserve that we become desperate and want to know how to get “there.” When we learn that stagnancy and struggle are there to wake us up and rethink, only then will we focus back in on the present in order to make a change. Mindfulness is the underlying message being brought forth in readings.

A Psychic can only read your current vibrational signature. You might have been to a Psychic who accurately predicted everything for you, but I believe it’s because you were consciously co-creating those events because you believed the reading so strongly.

Final Thoughts

At the end of the day, you are your best Psychic, because everything that is meant to happen will happen. Will knowing it’s going to happen really offer any relief? Or will you find yourself fixating on it, ignoring the present, and in turn manifesting your fixations? Psychics aren’t some mystical seers who can predict the future. If you want to know the future- read your present.

Are New Agers Suffering From Tarot/Oracle Addictions?

One thousand tarot/oracle sets line a bookshelf, a spread for literally every question, buying every deck ever made, and performing daily rituals. For most of us New Agers, this seems like a typical way of life whereby we consult the cards for every question we might have. One doesn’t have to look far to see this is a growing trend. Scrolling through my Instagram or Facebook feed- 90% of the posts are of daily readings. Some of us pull cards first thing in the morning to show us what the day ahead has in store for us. Some pull cards for questions ranging from- will I get the job- to should I buy that dress? Either way, it seems we have become obsessed with fortune telling. How many of us could actually go a day without doing either one? I know I’ve tried skipping my weekly readings, and I found myself feeling very unsettled. Every-time I would walk by my bookshelf where I keep some of my divinatory tools- I would feel a little anxious, tempted, and desperate to use them. I don’t use divination everyday, I have always limited myself to once a week. However, when I have a burning question I usually grab my cards or consult the stars to gain some clarity and insight. My concern is that when we rely on divinatory tools for answers we neglect our intuition and spontaneity. Some may argue that all cards do is confirm what we may already suspect, but can’t we just tune every once in awhile? The less we engage that inner voice in our head, the sooner it will stop speaking to us. It’s much easier to grab a deck and try to interpret the hell out of it, but I would argue it’s just as easy to let go and see what happens. Spontaneity allows us to embrace our inner child and to trust the process of life. The more we use cards the more we use our free will, trying to manipulate the outcomes of our readings. Considering there is a big push in the New Age spirituality communities to connect to the divine, over-exhausting our free will seems counter-productive. Relying on cards for every single question might be an indication of a control issues. Is the New Age birthing a generation of control freaks?

Source may speak to us through our cards, but why can’t we just talk directly to source? Do we really need a hermetic translation in the form of plastic cards- no matter how much magic is encoded in them? Can’t we just expect the unexpected and decode our own inner feelings, signs, and symbols? If we are able to do that, then we will have the most valuable Tarot/Oracle deck ever made- one made of our intuition, emotions, presence, and soul.

I wouldn’t be surprised if in the future there are Tarot therapy groups- similar to Alcoholics Anonymous. I’ve seen some lives destroyed from Tarot readings. I knew someone who had a reading done by a very well respected Tarot reader in the community and was foretold that she would acquire a lot of money.  This person ended up stealing a lot of money. Rather than to wait to see what would happen, she decided to manipulate fate for her own devious reasons. Tarot addictions can be very dangerous when you misinterpret the cards. Consulting a true professional is always the best option.

Do you think you could go on a Tarot/Oracle diet?

An Astrological Journey with Lenormand

I have been divining with Lenormand cards for a while now, and I have noticed the zodiac within the cards themselves. I haven’t found any other information about this anywhere, so I thought I would share it here on my blog. Lenormand consists of 36 cards or 38 depending on the deck you use. I have discovered that the first 3 cards of the desk corresponds to Aries, the next 3 Taurus and so on. The meanings of the cards echo the archetypes of the zodiac. Let’s take a look.

 

Rider, Clover, Ship

Rider= quickening movement, a message is on its way

Clover= small little luck

Ship= a journey

Aries-= quick, small, a new journey. Aries is the first sign of the Zodiac and corresponds to fast energy since it’s ruled by Mars. Aries energy also denotes a smaller burst of energy because it’s the baby of the zodiac who is about to embark on a new journey.

 

House, Tree,  Clouds

House= literal house, or family

Tree= good health, stability, new growth

Clouds= confusion, deception, blurry vision

Taurus= An an earth sign, Taurus loves the home and garden, but their love of money and luxury can distort their perspectives.

 

Snake, Coffin, Bouquet

Snake= deception

Coffin= literal death, rebirth

Bouquet- a lovely gift

Gemini-  Gemini’s can be deceptive as they are the best at playing mind games and can be a little two-faced at times like a two headed snake. Since Gemini rules over some of May and almost all of June, they are associated with Spring.

 

Scythe, Whip, Birds

Scythe- something being cut, removed

Whip- stinging feelings

Birds- chatter, communication

Cancer- As by far one of the most emotional signs in Astrology, Cancers often remove themselves from situations and relationships that become toxic or overbearing for them. As empaths, they feel emotions from other people that can clutter their energy fields, making them feel literally sick. As the mother archetype, a lot of Cancers are afraid to leave the nest, and would love to have their own children to nurture and raise.

 

Child, Fox, Bear

Child- youthful energy, new beginnings

Fox- trickery

Bear- big money, boss

Leo- Leo energy is all about embracing the inner child. They can also be a little sneaky and can me motivated by ulterior motives.  Leoline energy is also loud and proud, and expect to live like royals.

 

Star, Stork, Dog

Stars- destiny, wish fulfillment

Stork- delivery, baby

Dog- loyal

Virgo-  Virgo energy is pure, spiritual, and loyal. The stork symbolism corresponds to the Virgin archetype of this sign.

 

Tower, Garden, Mountain

Tower- institution, money, corporations, court house

Garden- community

Mountain- obstacles

Libra- Libran energy is associated with institutions, communities, and obstacles, as their is a give and take that correlates to the 1st and 7th house axis.

 

Crossroads, Mice, Heart

Crossroads- a decision to make

Mice- illness

Heart- love, literal heart

Scorpio- This energy is about transformation, illness, and having a heavy heart.

 

Ring, Book, Letter

Ring- comittment

Book- studies

Letter- correspondence

Sagittarius- studious, committed

 

Man, Woman, Lily

Man= Man

Woman= Woman

Lily= long time, long term

Capricorn- Capricorns have a nice dose of both masculine and feminine energies as they are able to combine the outward expression of masculine energy with the intuitive know how of the feminine. Capricorns take their time in life, slowly working their way up the mountain.

Sun, Moon, Key

Sun= joy

Moon= attention

Key- answer

Aquarius- These three cards show how Aquarius is the sign of the collective consciousness.

 

Fish, Anchor, Cross

Fish= money

Anchor= stability

Cross= burden, spirituality
Pisces- They are the mystical mermaids of the zodiac, and find their sense of security and stability with spirituality.

May 2017 Lenormand Readings

Hi all, I have been using Lenormand for a while now and thought I would do a reading for the month of May for each rising sign. For those of you who aren’t familiar with Lenormand, they are fortune telling cards very different from Tarot. Lenormand are very specific and are less psychological based. When reading Lenormand you do not decode the symbolism or imagery of the cards, you simply read them like a sentence. Please read your forecast down below for your Rising Sign only.

 

Aries Rising- Dog + Cross

A friend who has been loyal to you is now going to become burdensome. They might be more needy or are going through a dark period in their life. Be a good friend to them.

Taurus Rising- Anchor + Key

Something that will bring you stability in your life in May is going to give you all the answers you need. If something feels comfortable, now that it is telling you everything will be fine.

Gemini Rising- Letter + Tree + Key

Gemini Risings will be receiving some news about their health, perhaps test results will be coming to you. Know that whatever information you receive about your health is going to be very good. This can also indicate some information coming to you regarding your family. It will also be positive in nature.

Cancer Rising- Coffin + Tree + Lady + Letter

You will be going through a rebirthing phase in May and or a younger woman in your life will be. You will receive some news that will spark the new growth in your life.

Leo Rising- Snake + Lady

Be on the lookout for an untrustworthy deceptive lady. It is going to be someone who is not so obvious, so be extra cautious with who you trust.

Virgo Rising- Dog + Tree

Something new has begun for you in your life and you can depend on it this month.

Libra Rising- Bouquet + Book

Libra Risings will be receiving a book or educational pursuit this month. In May you will have an opportunity to learn something new.

Scorpio Rising- House + Mountain + Tree + Fish

Home life will have some troubles that you will overcome and will receive some money and abundance as a result. Perhaps a home repair will bring you some money.

Sagittarius Rising- Stork + Garden

You will be traveling to a celebration or will be joining a community activity or organization.

Capricorn Rising- Key + Ship + Cross

If you have been contemplating going on a trip or new journey will be favourable for you. You might encounter some psychological burdens with regards to this journey, so be mindful of your thoughts.

Aquarius Rising- Whip + Mountains + Bear

You will be faced with a conflict that won’t be so easy to overcome. The conflict will be associated with someone of power and affluence, most likely your boss.

Pisces Rising- Snake + Mountain + Lilies + Moon

Something will deceive you that is going to take a long time to rectify. The spotlight will be on you, so be careful someone doesn’t blame you for the deception. Be careful of your night life, as the snake can present itself as someone who you socialize with at night or work with at night.
