What if? It’s amazing how those two words can cause so much distress to our peace of mind. This world is full to the brim with what-ifs and uncertainties, so it is only natural that people find themselves looking to psychics and mediums such as myself for guidance and answers. Most often I find that my clients are searching for clues and reassurance about their relationships with family, friends and romantic partners. Below I have listed the six relationship questions I am asked most commonly.
1. Will I meet my soulmate?
This is the No. 1 relationship-related question my clients ask me; whether the person is single and searching for love or in a relationship but questioning if they’re with the right person.
If you’re in an unsatisfying or unhealthy relationship it is only normal to find yourself questioning its quality. An unsatisfying partnership can leave you feeling alone in the world and worrisome that you may never find the happiness in a relationship you see everyone around you is receiving.
This is where I come in. As a psychic and passionate practitioner of cartomancy, I have the ability to give guidance in the who, what and where of any romance question you may have.
2. Is my spouse cheating on me?
The American Association for Marriage and Family Therapy estimates that 25 percent of men and 15 percent of women in long-term relationships have cheated on their partner by having sex with someone else. If emotional affairs are factored in, those percentiles are even higher. With this in mind, it comes as no surprise to me that people come seeking help to alleviate their fears or confirm their suspicions.
So that my clients can get the most out their readings I usually request that they do their best to try to be patient and let the cards reveal the answers they seek. I am opposed to clients explaining what is going on in their relationship. This is to ensure that the information I am receiving is coming from an intuitive source rather than just my analytical mind.
3. Will my affair partner leave their spouse for me?
Some may find this question a little risque, but I never judge nor criticize my clients. Sometimes we fall in love at inopportune times and I hold no right to decide if that is right or wrong. I believe that we all have our own journey that is meant to teach us and help our souls grow in awareness and love. Keeping that in mind, I know that is only my job to guide with intuition not to judge.
4. How can I get this person to like to love me back?
I find that many of my single clients feel that is hard dating in today's world. Getting ghosted has become all too common, and more and more people are having to face the pain of unrequited love.
The truth is I can’t answer this question. True love is not forced into reciprocation. It may be that you’re just not asking the right question. You see I believe that we accept the love we think we deserve, and if the love you’re accepting and chasing is one-sided I feel that is what we should be exploring.
5. Is my divorce or breakup a failure at love?
I don’t need to reference my cards to answer this question, it’s no. A breakup or a divorce is actually proof of the opposite. The ending to a long term relationship can feel as though you’ve wasted precious time, but it’s actually a signal that this partnership has fulfilled the role it was meant to play in your life. Leaving that relationship is actually a huge victory for your soul’s path, it means your soul has completed its lesson.
For example, for people who leave abusive marriages or relationships, the lesson is often valuing their own life energy and light so deeply that they have the strength to leave the situation.
During a breakup, it is important to focus on what you gained from the relationship instead of thinking of it as an overall loss.
6. Can I fix an unresolved issue with a loved one who has died?
Many of my clients are seeking a connection to their loved ones on the other side. They may feel that there are unresolved issues of resentment or regret that they worry will have no resolution now that their loved one has passed.
When we pass we see a sort of movie of our lives through our eyes but also the eyes of everyone around us. We gain a deeper understanding of any wrongs we have done. So, if you feel there is someone who has passed that may have hurt you take comfort in knowing they now understand the pain they caused and are seeking forgiveness.
Relationships don’t end at death. Death should be viewed as a doorway, not a boundary or ending.
Maybe you’re looking for Mr. or Mrs. Right. Maybe you’re feeling stuck in an unhealthy relationship or feel anxious your partner isn’t loyal. Maybe a loved one has passed before they got to say I’m sorry. Relationships of every type can be challenging, but it is important to remember the situations they create are meant to help our souls grow through lessons and in love. Love is a word that encompasses so much. Love is patience, kindness, empathy, forgiveness, trust, selflessness, faith, and strength. Try to take a step back and look at your relationship status and see what lessons are lying there in wait.
My entire life I have had a close connection to the Divine, and when I turned fourteen I discovered a tool that could help me refine and focus my gifts. This tool was cartomancy, a form of divination that gives insight into the varied situations we face in our daily lives. There are many types of cartomancy, but Lenormand Cards are my personal preference. In this article, I’m going to share some of the knowledge I have acquired over the years and give you a beginners introduction to reading Lenormand Cards.
What are Lenormand Cards?
The history of cartomancy spans over a period of six centuries and has been around as long as playing cards have existed. I find that most people are more familiar with Tarot cards, but Lenormand cards have been used as a form of divination just as long.
Lenormand is a 200-year-old system, originating from the center of Europe, that consists of 36 cards. The cards are made of simple, straightforward images that are used to explain literal not psychological issues.
Madame Lenormand and the History of Lenormand Cards
The cards were created in the late 18th century, and many of their symbols were inspired by those commonly found in coffee ground readings. The oldest surviving deck is on exhibit in the British Museum in London and is from 1799 or 1800. Originally Lenormand cards were just a parlor game called “The Game of Hope.” However, as years passed the images on the cards showed themselves fitting for more mystical purposes.
It wasn’t until the mid-19th century, after Madame Lenormand’s death that the cards began to bear her name. It is rumored, and to my belief, that she had a custom set of the same exact cards that are used today, which were her own adaption of the deck. Madame Lenormand was the most celebrated psychic of her time and had associations with honorable figures such as Robespierre, Marat (both French revolutionaries), Empress Josephine (the wife of Napoleon Bonaparte) and Tsar Alexander I of Russia.
After her death, the Lenormand cards rose in popularity amongst the occult circles of continental Europe. Over the next century and a half, the intrigue and love for the deck spread to the Low Countries, Central Europe, the Balkans, Russia, and even Brazil. During this period the English-speaking world was engrossed with Tarot, it wasn’t until the 21st century that the Lenormand deck would find its place in the occult circles of this world.
Lenormand Cards and Their Uses
The Lenormand cards provide another way of understanding the complexities of your own mind - helping you strategically plan out possible courses and actions that you can take. I am a strong believer in ‘we all have answers inside of us’ sometimes we just need guidance along the path to finding them. Lenormand cards show you the clear path while the card reader guides you along the route they present.
The path is shown through simple yet effective universal symbols that the reader pulls together as if they were beads on a string. The meanings within the Lenormand cards reveal themselves as if they were a story meant to be narrated by the card reader. Whether you choose to interpret just two cards or spread out a full Grand Tableau utilizing the entire deck, you can use Lenormand as a tool for self-development and spiritual discovery.
Through my readings, I can make the answers to your questions about your relationships, career, family matters and almost anything clear. I believe that this clarity the Lenormand deck enables me to give to you will allow you to trust your own intuition and make real, everyday decisions with confidence. That is the true power of the Lenormand deck and why it is my cartomancy of choice, it is a frank way of tackling your real-life issues with astonishing accuracy.
Each and everyone one of us has a direct connection to the divine. The strength and depth of that connection may vary from person to person, but this connection gives all of us the ability to tap into a higher power for insight. You may find this hard to believe, but after reviewing the four signs I’ve listed below you may discover a few unexpected qualities that could mean you have latent psychic abilities.
Sign #1: Relaxing in nature makes you more insightful
Have you ever suddenly “seen” the solution to a conflict in your life when you have completely relaxed and silenced your mind? Maybe this happened to you during a long night drive, during a shower, while meditating or doing yoga.
Studies have shown that meditation and yoga actually change our brain-wave activity; causing our frontal lobe to silence, and in my opinion, allowing your latent psychic abilities to temporarily surface.
So let's say your sitting in a park on a beautiful day relaxing within about a 90-minute period, and suddenly you just seem to “know” accurate details about people without any prior knowledge. This is a powerful indication that you may be psychic. In the past, you may have found this easily dismissible by telling yourself you were just over-emotional, but trust in your insight and don’t push away the signs of your gift.
Sign #2: You meet new people and associate them with a color
Psychics interpret people differently. This is usually because they have synesthesia, a condition characterized by a swapping of the senses. Have you ever met someone new and instantly associated them with a color, flower, or even a landscape? Have you ever heard musical notes faintly surrounding someone? These flashes of sensory perception are completely internal and very clear. Unfortunately, most people don’t discuss these perceptions out of fear of judgment.
If you are experiencing synesthesia embrace it. It is a special tool that can be used to understand the world around you in a more insightful way. For example, if when meeting someone you see the color blue; this is a sign that they are a natural healer, but if you see red then this person is most likely experiencing stress and may be short-tempered. Do your best to notice this information and use it as a compass to help guide you in your interactions.
Sign #3: Your gut has saved you in some way
Perhaps you’ve been driving and suddenly felt a strong urge to avoid a certain route home… only to find out later that there had been a horrible accident on the route you were planning on taking. Most if not all of us have these intuitive pulls. But for a psychic these pulls are even stronger; It feels as if a magnet is pulling you toward or away something so intensely that it’s impossible to ignore. This pull is usually paired with a clear sense of knowing.
Again, embrace these magnetic pulls when you feel them. I’ve known people who’s lives were saved by a gut feeling that urged them to avoid a certain action they intended to take, and I’ve met people who reconnected with long lost friends by an intuitive pull nudging them to have dinner at a specific restaurant. You never know what gift is awaiting you on the other end of an intuitive pull.
Sign #4: Your dreams appear in your daily life in surprising ways
Have you ever had a dream in which a deceased loved one spoke to you and disclosed the location of an important document you were searching for? Or maybe you were at work and had a flash image, in a “daydream,” of your co-workers congratulating you while you held a trophy - to find out moments later that you are receiving a promotion? You may have tried to dismiss these experiences but they continue to happen. I have found that people get frightened by their dreams that include these so-called coincidences.
These premonitions or “meaningful coincidences” are signs to you that you are psychically in tune with the universe. If you are experiencing any of the four gifts listed above don’t fight them or ignore them. They are amazing gifts given to you by Spirit to help you engage deeper with the people around you, and potentially even warn you of danger ahead. I see being psychic as further validation that we are all connected and spiritually intertwined with one another.
Kindness is something that everyone can practice. By being kind to others, people can learn how rewarding it is to do good things for others. When you do good deeds, people really appreciate it and they want to return the favor to do something kind for you. When someone wants to repay your kindness, you can ask him or her to pay it forward by doing a good deed for someone else. You are helping to spread kindness to more people.
Ask people to repay your kindness by paying it forward by doing good deeds for three other people. Then he or she should tell those three people, to spread kindness to another three people. This may snowball into a kindness movement. Your one good deed will turn into multiple good deeds and those good deeds will quickly multiply from there.
The pay it forward concept has been around for thousands of years. It was key in the plot of an ancient Greek play called Dyskolos. Throughout the years, many famous people have written or spoken about the concept. There is even a movie with the title, Pay It Forward.
How can you start a pay it forward movement? Ask a few friend or family members to brainstorm some ways to pay it forward. Here are a few ways for you to lead by example: start carrying around a couple trash bags with you and start picking up trash in your neighborhood and if someone wants to join in, give him or her a trash bag. Help an elderly person with carrying their groceries to their car. Visit an old folk’s home and read stories aloud to them or talk to them for a time. My favorite pay it forward is at a drive thru! A little kindness goes a long way. Kindness can be contagious. If you cannot ask people to pay it forward, you have still planted a seed, they see what you did, things like kindness stick with people. Hate does not. You can leave a Smile Card for someone to find and hopefully, this will inspire him or her to pay it forward. For more ideas, check out Stories of Kindness from Around the World. They are so inspiring. Spread kindness ♥️
Do you ever experience a feeling deep in your gut that occurs when there is a decision to be made? This is your intuition speaking to you and you should trust that gut feeling. There are signs that your intuition is correct. At times, you feel like you know something, this is your intuition speaking to you. Intuition may be described as a mental matching game because your brain assesses a situation, scans its files and finds its best analogue among your vast memories and knowledge to develop a hunch about the situation. Your intuition is mostly likely always on point. It is just a matter of learning to trust it.
Your dreams and intuition come from your unconscious. You should keep a journal by your bedside to write down your vivid dreams because this could be information from your unconscious. When looking at a clock, do you happen to look at the exact same time? This can be your intuition relating to unconscious information in your brain.
When you are highly sensitive to how others are feeling, this is a sign of being intuitive. Being in tune to what people feel, you are more likely to notice how to act and handle certain situations.
At times, you will know when you are getting sick and that your body has to rest. Listen to your body and trust when something is feeling off.
Have you ever thought of someone and then that person is calling you? This is your intuition totally on point. Something registered in your friend connection to get on a call.
When you feel unsafe, never doubt your gut feeling. If your gut is screaming not to go down an unlit path, find another route. Trust your gut and do not proceed, if you are feeling uncomfortable or unsafe.
Trust your instinct while doing activities. If you have highly qualified skills, you have developed instinct and muscle memory. Listen to your instinct and intuition and they will guide you.
Business is constantly changing and there is data that helps you make accurate decisions for your business. However, when it comes to picking your team and doing right by them, intuition plays a major role. Our gut feelings are attached to information stored in our brains.
When you know someone well, you can predict his or her reactions. That is your intuition being on point.
Learn to trust your intuition and go with your gut. One way to gain confidence in trusting your intuition is keep a journal of these ‘incidences’ see if there’s a pattern to them. You may find your new ‘sensitivity’ will lead you to beautiful places and on amazing journeys.
We all do have a direct pipeline to the Divine and the other side, all it takes is practice! Spirituality and psychic abilities reside in each of us and the more connected we are, the more our Third Eye Chakra opens, at times you will actually feel it opening.
Each day, we receive messages and feelings but, since we are constantly on the move, it is difficult to calm our minds enough to understand and interpret these messages. I find this is where meditation will benefit. Sit quietly, always have back straight, you always want to be in proper alignment, find a focal point (you can use any kind of focal point a candle a tarot, card, I personally use the Lenormand Key card) then focus on your breathing in and out slowly. Start by clearing the negativity from your mind. Set your intention ask Spirit to come around you, also you may or may not want to ask a question. After your setting your intention then picture your third eye opening, feel it opening. Eventually you will feel a pressure right there where your Third Eye is opening as you practice. Now see feel and hear what is coming through? What are you seeing, hearing or feeling through your third eye? Be consistent and keep a journal. Keep your motives pure and your instincts will develop. Practice reading for friends, since we have a tendency to read what we wish rather than the truth, this is why its a good idea to practice reading for friends or family. Calm your mind and listen for the answers. Do not be afraid to be incorrect because it might not be true in at this moment in time but it could be something that will come in the future. Get your mind used to a sequence and be aware that you must not try to control, if your mind controls, say, going to kids your job, just acknowledge this and go back to feeling and seeing what is coming through your Third Eye. What does Spirit wants you to know? You are there to be guided. Note: Spirit always hears you, you may not receive the message during that meditation, it could pop out in our mind while doing laundry or driving. SPIRIT ALWAYS HEARS YOU
Overcome your fear of being wrong when reading friends. And nothing you say is wrong, you just haven’t honed it properly yet. Fear is not a reality only a feeling. ALWAYS, do this work with sincere integrity and the intention to heal and give peace. Practice and perseverance will make your gift stronger.
Be open, set the intention to heal and give peace. Remember you are a pipeline by which knowledge comes through.
Keep practicing these skills and it will become easier over time.
Manifestation! Everyone can manifest what he or she wants in his or her lives. Here are some tips on how to manifest. We will explore how to manifest any desire in your life and we will show how we are always manifesting. Our minds are quite powerful and we can wield this power to make what we want our reality. The mind makes the course for how you will live and the heart has the deep yearning for what you must do.
Remember, we are a co-creator with the universe and if you believe we are part of the greater whole, then you choose what you are able to manifest. We only need to decide everything we want. Observe your thoughts and you will start to see how you are always manifesting. Your thoughts determine how you feel and your mood influences what you are thinking. We are always bringing into our lives what we desire most as well as what we do not want. This is determined by our focus and energy directed at something.
Start by focusing on something you would like to witness, to experience or to know. Take a few moments to visualize what your desire and focus on it. Now, focus on this desire occurring now. Feel the emotions that accompany this desire. Visualize it as it is complete here and now. Notice any feelings and where you feel them in your body and how do you feel as you visualize this presently. Manifesting is seeing and feeling the future you want presently and then taking steps to make it a reality.
There are two very powerful words when manifesting… “I AM.” Pretend you have what you want and what you are. Daydreaming, imagining, and pretending are all ways of manifesting.
When you manifest something that is more complex or takes time, you may feel like giving up when it doesn’t happen but do not give up. As we age, we become distracted by what is not working and our problems and this can become our constant focus without realizing that this focus brings more of the same.
A secret to manifesting is to focus on the outcome you most desire. Manifesting is co-creating something you do not see yet. When you become distracted and focus on what currently is and not what you desire, this is discouraging. However, continue to manifest what you want and move in the direction you want. Always be grateful and thankful for what you currently have and for what is coming to you.
Set aside some alone time to practice manifesting by using your imagination and intentional focus. Take a few minutes a day, to stop and feel this desire wholly. Use I AM to make this your reality. Let yourself take in those feelings that arise. This is how you manifest most effectively. Be unwavering in what you want and hold this belief. Act as what you most desire is already here now. Practice stating what you want quietly and aloud to bring clarity into what you want.
Be deliberate in your actions and live your life as if what you are asking for is already here. Take the action steps. Use your imagination and your willingness to live this way now is how to manifest it fully. Remember, you are able to manifest some desires instantly and that we are manifesting each moment.
Each action begins as a thought, an idea or a desire. When you realize that we are always manifesting, it makes us more accountable to our thoughts and our actions. Everything is yours to decide. Align yourself with your desires by being clear about what you want and then taking deliberate action towards your wants. Your focus must be deliberate and steadfast as you take the steps towards accomplishing your desire.
Co-creating with the universe may occur instantly or may take several weeks, months or years depending on certain factors. In order to have all the pieces in place for larger manifestation, you need to continue your focus and attention to it. Your job is to be ready, show up, be clear and flexible. Be bold in asking for your desire and do not settle for anything less. Practice your laser focus that will direct your want into your life. Co-create more deliberately and start manifesting your dream life.
What do you fear? Does fear control your life? It can be uncomfortable and crippling. However, being fearless means knowing how to leverage your fear(s). Fear is part of your brain and run from the depths of your limbic system to your prefrontal cortex. When these networks are stimulated, they produce fear. Having fear is a normal brain function.
Each person responds to fear differently. It may cause an unpleasant experience that ranges from mild to paralyzing. Chronic stress, constant worry and daily insecurity may seriously harm your physical and mental health over time. Fear is part instinct, part learned and partly taught. Pain is instinctual because it useful in survival. We learn fear of certain people, places or situations because negative associations and experiences. Cultural norms are taught and often dictate whether something should be feared or not.
Due to our efficient brains, we begin to fear a range of stimuli that are not necessarily scary or even present. We start to imagine what could happen and hence the fearful response. We create the fear in our minds and this objectless fear can turn into chronic anxiety about nothing specific, which in returns becomes debilitating.
Your fear response becomes amplified when you’re already in a state of fear and even harmless events seem scary. Fear dictates the actions you take and these actions are divided into four types- freeze, fight, flight or fright. When you freeze, you stop what you are doing and focus on the fearful stimulus in deciding what to do next. Then you choose to either fight or flight. When the fear becomes overwhelming, you experience fright and you are cannot do anything. Being constantly in fright mode, may lead to hopelessness and depression.
Everyone reacts differently to threats. Imagine threats cause paralysis and you fail to take any action. Real threats cause frenzy and you jump to action immediately. Learn to leverage your fear to use it to your benefit.
When you know what you are scared of, it is easier to overcome your phobia. It gives you a point of reference and something real to focus on. Once you know what it is, then you can start to understand your fear. First, address your thoughts and attitudes about your fear and then combat your physical response. You can begin to repair your faulty thinking by discussing your fears with others. Next take action against your phobias by coming face-to-face with your fear. You can do this by spending time with someone who deals on a regular basis with what you fear. Once you can face someone else dealing with your face, then you can tackle it yourself little by little.
Do not let your face paralyze your day-to-day routine. Start facing your fears and start living in the present.
Mercury retrograde can cause things to feel out of order. It can bring confusion and complications to our everyday lives. Mercury retrograde occurs several times a year and it is Mercury speeding past Earth.
During this time, people are prone to taking things out of context and misconstruing messages. Mercury retrograde is all about communication but you will face some roadblocks. People should expect to hear some uncomfortable truths during this time. You will need to reevaluate facts to determine the truthfulness of it. Mercury retrograde brings much self-reflection on our actions and the actions of others.
Many challenges that people face during this time are related to the fact that we are coming into Leo season and Leo is known to be a commanding and authoritative sign that tends to say things without thinking first. Leos are very prideful and when Mercury is in retrograde, people say things that come off as arrogant. There will be a lunar eclipse on July 16 and after Mercury retrograde transitions back into Cancer. You should reflect on your communication struggles from earlier in the retrograde.
The eclipse on July 16th is about letting go of people who are not at our level, letting go of the past, the power struggles and the love triangles. Use the end of retrograde to make amends and to decide if it is even worth it. No more drama should be your mantra at this time. Count to three before responding to someone and let yourself cool off before you respond. In today’s fast paced communication, it is ok to take a pause before responding to anyone. Remember that we cannot control what other people do but we can give ourselves a moment to control how we react.
Have you wanted to start reading Lenormand but do not know where to start? Well grab your deck and let’s start predicting.
First, formulate a question. Lenormand works best when you have a question because it means you have context and intention. Intention paves the way for the cards to provide a coherent message. Your question can be simple.
Next, shuffle the cards. While shuffling, keep thinking of your question. Shuffle the cards anyway you want but keep repeating your question in your mind slowly. Keep shuffling until you are ready.
After your deck is shuffled, lay the cards out. It is up to you whether to deal the cards out face up or face down.
Once your three cards are down, it is time to interpret them. There are many ways to interpret a three card spread. One way is to have the center card be the focus and the other two augment that focus. This provides the most accurate reading. Each card has associated meanings and you can use these keywords to interpret your reading. Remember to come back to your question and the context. Lenormand cards reveal very immediate and literal things. Do not freak out if you get a negative card because it is probably something small for that day. Keep a journal to help you make more sense of the cards. Remember just be you and keep interpreting.
Here are a few examples:
THE QUESTION: What’s my day going to be like?
House Garden Snake
House = Home, Stability, Family
Garden = Environment, Gathering, Social Scene
Snake = Problems, Betrayal, Lies
The middle card is your focus. So the day will revolve around your environment. Our home is our environment and there is a snake which reveals some type of trouble. There could be a disturbance at your house.
Sun Letters Bouquet
Sun = Happiness, Energy, Bring to Light
Letters = Invitation/News
Bouquet= Gift, Beauty, Happiness
The letters are your focus so there is some type of news and since it is surrounded by the sun and bouquet, we know it’s positive.
THE QUESTION: What’s my day going to be like?
Scythe Book Man
Scythe = Sudden Break, Divisive
Book = Secret, Hidden Information
Man = A Man (or querent if querent is a man)
The book is our focus card meaning our day will involve some kind of hidden information or secret. We know that the secret will be revealed and the secret is most likely about a man.
