2021 has been a strange year for all of us, but I truly do believe that everything happens for a reason. As a key worker I was fortunate enough to be able to carry on going to work, which undoubedly helped to keep me sane, but those times when I wasn't working I picked up past subjects that have always enthralled me ... Tarot being one of them. Some 30 years ago it was Tarot that got me started on the path that I find myself on today. From Tarot I went on to Reiki, from Reiki onto Counselling, from Counselling onto Life Coaching and from Life Coaching onto Hypnotherapy. It was a path that I never planned, it all simply evolved, but all work together perfectly.
I have always dabbled in the realm of the mysterious and unknown, as I have a deep knowing that this physical life isn't all that there is. We are all part of a powerful Universal energy that created other realms and we can connect to those realms using that energy and the power of our intuition where both merge to aid us if, only we take the time to listen.
Delving into Tarot for me is like coming home - I love everything about it and use it in conjunction with my crystals and pendulums on a daily basis. It works wonderfully in conjunction with life coaching, as it helps to delve into the psyche of the client. Tarot IS NOT about fortelling the future, it is about guiding the client to create the best one for them! I am NOT Gypsy Rose Lee! I am a professional practitioner who uses every tool at my disposal to help others overcome whatever is stoping them from having the life that they deserve.
The Major Arcana is a 22 card set within the tarot that is considered to be the core of the deck. These cards follow a storyline that tells of the travels taken from the innocent wonder of The Fool (0) as we all start off in life, to the oneness and fulfillment of The World (22). In other words, these cards tell the story of the client's evolution into enlightenment and individuation. The Minor Arcana is divided into 4 suits each consisting of 14 cards. Pentacles - Finances, Swords - Intellect, Cups - Emotions and Wards - Intuition / Imagination. A reading done using all cards will give a pretty acurate story of where the client is coming from (past), where he/she is now (present) and how they can reach their goal or what is stopping them from doing so (future).
I use a lot of cards in my practice because I relate to pictures better than words. Even when talking with a client I will be describing what I "see", as they speak, rather than what I'm thinking, so I guess that's the attraction for me - it instantly begins to tell me a story and finds a connection.
Mystic tools have been used since the beginning of time to aide the great leaders throughout the centuries and somehow I think we will be reurning to them again, in our thousands, for guidance in these uncertain times.
If you're interested in hearing more about this intuitive tool that has been used for centuries, then please do get in touch. It's a subject that I never tire of talking about.
