I have just given my blog a major facelift and taken out some pages. Those pages I have turned into blog articles/entries so that they are not just deleted.
I have been told by an increasing amount of people that I should start giving readings to the public and I have finally followed their urgings and my own guidance. I feel like it is time and I am ready.
To start with I am just asking for a donation for my readings.
I am just starting out and gathering my confidence but I also want to do this for the spiritual fulfilling aspects. I am more interested in helping others then making alot of money.
I asked the Question: What divine guidance have you got for me about my future.
0 – the Seeker – A new beginning
You have the opportunity to start a new journey, with a beginner’s mind. Is it time to hit the road, either metaphorically or literally? Every time you set out on a journey, even if it’s only a one-day hike, you embark on a spiritual journey as well. Be open to all the twists and curves in the road ahead. Be ready for wonderful surprises. Be open-hearted, innocent, trusting and spontaneous. Take a risk! Before you is a brand new adventure — the chance for a fresh start and endless possibilities.
6 – the Lovers – Follow your passion
You are being challenged to look deeply into your own heart and ask yourself if you are living a life full of passion and love. What gives you deep joy and fulfillment in your life? Whatever it is, are you pursuing it? When you are living an authentic life, pursuing your deepest passions, it is easy to love yourself and then to love others. If you have a choice to make, remember that the Lovers call upon you to always follow your heart’s desire.
14 – Temperance – Combining opposites
Resolution comes with finding the serenity of the middle way between polarities. You are ready to embrace the different parts of your personality, both light and shadow, that combine to make your own unique self. Your inner, spiritual life harmonizes with your life in the workaday world. You have discovered that your whole life is a work of art. You may be in need of healing on a spiritual or physical level, and the Winged One — a descendant of the ancient Bird Goddesses — is here to facilitate that for you. She may also aid you as you move into the role of healer yourself.
Wow – what an interesting and accurate reading – I was just saying how I need to be more responsible for my spiritual self – sounds just like ‘the challenge’ – the first card is very accurate to – I feel like I am at the beginning of a new journey. As for the last card – I never really saw myself as a healer but I do feel that I need to find a balance within myself.
I am posting this a day late because I have been pretty busy.
Yesterday I drew multiple tarot cards that were telling me to journey alone to a sacred place. I spent half the day umming and ahhing on where to go and then I thought about the large tree at Mt Warning/Wollumbin where there is a shrine/plaque to Aunty Milly (aboriginal custodian to the land who past away). As soon as I thought about the tree I was very certain that was where I was meant to go. I left with a flower and a rock to take to Aunty Milly, I dont know what made me take them I just went with the instinct.
I climbed to the tree barefoot because I wanted to be grounded. When I got there I found a little vase that was attached to the plaque and I was able to give Aunty Milly the flower I had brought. I then sat amongst the roots of the tree and meditated.
After a few minutes I remembered something I also read about asking for what you wanted. So I talked out loud to Aunty Milly and I felt a lot calmer. I returned to my meditation when I heard a noise and I opened my eyes. Things were a little blurry and it took a few moments for my eyes to focus on the bush turkey that appeared in front of me. It walked right up to the roots of the tree I was sitting on and it was only about half a metre away from me. It picked up a leaf and threw it towards me and then pottered around for a few minutes.
I should have just went back to meditating but I just wanted to know what the Bush Turkey meant. I have to laugh because I know some people who are confident enough that they would have just had a conversation with the bird. The beautiful thing is that when I walked up to the lookout point I ran into the Bush Turkey again and it walked in front of me all the way down the rainforest steps. I felt like it was seeing me off or leading me out of the forest. It was very beautiful.
For those that dont know Mt Warning is the shape of the Bush Turkey and the Aboriginals refer to it as Wollumbin (meaning bush turkey, please note the spelling might be Wollumbini). So I kind of felt like the spirit of the mountain was acknowledging me.
I guess I dont know what to really say/think all I can tell you is that I felt very blessed by my experience.
My question was kind of open = I had in my mind “was the meditation I wrote this afternoon channelled” but I was also thinking about how intense my life is at the moment spiritually/energetically.

10 – the Wheel
Cycles and seasons
You are being challenged to embrace the change that is imminent. One part of a cycle is becoming another. What is passing away in your life right now, and what is coming into being? Where do you stand right now on the Wheel? Can you see that what is happening does not happen in isolation, but is part of a pattern? Sometimes the change that is coming is obvious and striking. More often, it creeps up on us when our attention has been elsewhere — the trees are suddenly bare and we didn’t even notice when the first leaves began to fall. So this card also challenges us to be mindful. Keep track of the cycles of the sun and moon, which mirror our own inner cycles. If things seem chaotic and disorderly in your life, focus on the still point of the turning wheel. Remember that with prayer and the magic of sustained focus, all things are possible.

Over and Over I keep drawing two cards from my favourite tarot guidance deck.
Hear the Ancient Ones & Challenge My Perceptions.
It to much of a coincidence that I keep drawing these cards over the last 3 weeks. Statistically I think it would be impossible but I am no mathematician. I bought a book on aboriginal history, I originally bought it but then felt little connection to it so I kind of dismissed it, maybe I have to go and try reading it again.
My perceptions are being challenged constantly – each and every day.
Life is both beautifully simple and completely confusing at the moment 😛
I just came across this deck for sale in a catalogue and I googled it. I discovered this really interesting site: http://www.gaiantarot.com/ I love when an author or illustrator of a deck takes the time and effort to create a website that gives me insight into the cards.
While there I noticed a FREE READING page and clicked on it, they then give you the opportunity to ask a question, set my intention and then click on the cards (3 cards come up)
I was sceptical at first – could a reading work over the Internet but I decided to give it a go. I asked :
“Why am I resisting my creative writing assignment” (I have 8 min script due) I even got an extension for it but I am being super negative about the whole thing.
This was what I got from the reading:
I think it stands for – This script is a opportunity for me to be tested, my creativity will be challenged and it may change the way I view my talents, once I have finished I will prove to myself that when I focus my will I can do anything.

|8 – Strength
Courage and inner fireYou have the opportunity to develop your inner fortitude, which is the unseen blessing of difficult times. When you face your fears, an unpleasant situation or an inner truth that you don’t want to acknowledge, you develop the courage that allows you to persevere during chaotic, stressful times. If you’ve never before been tested, you may be surprised to discover a wild source of strength you didn’t know you had — like a woman giving birth alone in the wilderness. Afterwards, you will be changed, and your sense of personal power will grow. Others will see it in you and call it “charisma.” Your inner fire will be awakened, and it will never again go out.
|16 – Lightning
Sudden, irrevocable changeGet ready! Life as you have always known it is about to change. It is sudden and it is radical. It may be an epiphany or a flash of insight that totally revises the way you look at the world. It may be an emotional breakthrough. Or it may be an upheaval in your life or the in the life of the world around you. It is up to you how you will respond to the crisis. Will you let it crush you, or will you allow it to transform you? The energy that is released in the aftermath of crises has the potential for enormous creativity and transformation.
|1 – the Magician
Spirit made manifestResolution comes as you use your personal power in a responsible way. You have the ability to manifest your desires. You know how to enter sacred space and bring spiritual energy into the world of matter. You know how to focus your will and your passion towards a goal. Your creativity energizes you and blesses those around you. You align yourself with the heartbeat of the earth, and bring forth healing for the planet and all her creatures.
