Operation Underground Railroad (a fundraiser)

Leave a comment

Hi everyone!

During the entire month of December I’m doing a fundraiser for project underground railroad. It’s actually my motivation for launching my business. I’ve been procrastinating for so long and when Glenn Beck told us about this project I thought how amazing it would be if I could do a fundraiser to help. I really think we could make a difference here!

So what’s going on is that there is a sex trade here in the United States that is focused around children. Think of the movie Taken, except with 5 year old little boys and none of their daddies trying to save them. Yeah, it’s pretty horrific, I know, but it is actually happening. Our government knows where a lot of these children are, but because of treaties with other countries, they can’t go in and officially save them. Well there was an agent working for the program that just couldn’t take it anymore and decided that he was going to form his own group separate from the government, and try to save these kids. They’ve built an elite team of CIA agents, and Special Ops, and they plan on going in to save them without government aid. The only problem is funding. It is an ongoing thing, its not an accumulating type of funding like a kick starter program, every dollar will help.

This is something that just really cuts me in half. I can’t imagine these children being in that kind of position. Just something about little children being raped is so hard for me to handle. The stories that they have told are just so incredibly heartbreaking and I want to help in as many ways as I can. My husband and I have actually already donated quite a bit out of our pockets and I just don’t feel like it’s enough. This fundraiser really means the world to me, and it’s probably not the only time that I will be doing this. April is child abuse awareness month; you can expect that month to be a whole donation month as well.

I’m pouring my heart and soul into this, and every single dollar of the fundraiser will be going directly into donation. I won’t be profiting at all this month, it’s purely to help save those children. I’m seriously trying not to cry while I type this.

So here’s the deal:

$5 will get you a 1 HOUR reading.

This is a $25 value, its one heck of a deal. It is of course a donation though, so I encourage everyone to do what they can. I kept the price low and the offer high so that it would encourage more donations.

Please, if you are interested, I would appreciate your help immensely! You can either get a reading, or just let all of your people know what I’m trying to do. This offer ends December 31st of this year. I could even print out a gift certificate for a Christmas gift.

Here is the website for the cause https://www.operationundergroundrailroad.org/

If you are interested, shoot me a message! Thank you!

Bright Blessings!

What the Bible REALLY says about Tarot cards

Leave a comment

Some of you may not know, but I come from a Christian background. When I started learned about paganism, I always felt that one and two were the same, so I believed both. I am completely pagan, I just believe in one God, and I believe in the Bible. When I first got to the point where I wanted to read tarot professionally, I wanted to be prepared for others to judge me and say I’m the devil. That’s where this whole research thing started.

I first thought, well if the bible says all of these things against it, then why do I feel called to do it? Why are angels in the room guiding me through my readings? So I asked the Bible. It led me to Ephesians 4:2 “I, therefore, the prisoner in [the] Lord, entreat YOU to walk worthily of the calling with which YOU were called, with complete lowliness of mind and mildness, with long suffering, putting up with one another in love.” That verse tells me that it’s ok for me to do this, but “why is it ok?” I asked. So I started doing a little bit of research into tarot, and the bible. This is what I came up with.

Let’s start with the basics in Deuteronomy, the Mosaic Law, 18:10 “There should not be found in you anyone who makes his son or his daughter pass through the fire, anyone who employs divination, a practicer of magic or anyone who looks for omens or sorcerer, or one who binds others with a spell or anyone who consults a spirit medium or a professional foreteller of events or anyone who inquires of the dead.”

The passing of fire is a ceremonial act of initiation. The term “divination” is from the Latin word “divinare” meaning “to foresee”. We basically see it as telling of the future. The practice of magic is no where to be seen in tarot. Although you can use the tarot for spells, that’s not its main purpose. That’s just something you can do on the side. Omens are like a prophetic sign. Something that you look at and think “it’s a sign, something evil will happen”. (Don’t get omens confused with synchronicity, the two are similar by definition, but not the same at all) . The binding of a spell part means you don’t cast anyone else with a spell. (I like to look real close at the binding part, what does that convey? Maybe something more dark?) And a spirit medium is someone who can speak with the dead. A foreteller of events is just that, they forecast events to come. I think of this part more in large scale, and divining as is small scale. That last part of the scripture is for if you want to inquire of the dead yourself.

A lot of people see tarot as a tool for divination. Yes, it can be used for that, and a lot of practitioners decide to use it that way, but that’s not the main use for it, at least not in my opinion. Think of it this way, if you can ask the cards anything you want, knowing full well that you need to not ask about the future, what would you ask? How questions, what questions, why questions, the list can go on. “How can I get back on my feet?” “What can I do to find love?” If you piece apart these scriptures you will find that there is no problem with finding personal enlightenment or empowerment, which is the main use for these cards. Later in the Bible it actually encourages you to be open with your spirit self, and to seek enlightenment.

This revelation was truly amazing for me. There is nothing in the Bible that says that you can’t use tarot. You just have to be cautious to stay away from predictive type readings. That is exactly what I do in my practice, and the whole reason why I choose not to do them.

I like to look further though, at the history of the cards, and what the cards actually do.

Tarot has only been used this way for 200 years. It started out as a game. They were not reading tarot cards back in the bible days! In that particular scripture, it’s the Mosaic Law, the law before the New Testament. It doesn’t count for us anymore, and tarot was never in the mix to begin with. If we still lived in the Old Testament days then we would still be stoning woman who committed infidelity. It’s nice to know what the rules were back then, but Jesus created a new universal law in the New Testament. Love God with your whole heart, and love your neighbor as you do yourself.

Now let’s look at what tarot actually does. I shuffle the cards; I put my energy into them, and lay them out. Each card has a meaning, but each meaning has different layers. Then add context and it can get quite confusing. How do you know which card means what? You use your intuition.

Tarot is mainly a tool that we use to access our intuition. The pictures and the meanings help us connect and make it easier. There are many people that get to the point to where they don’t need to read cards anymore because they have exercised their intuition so much they can give a reading without them.

Intuition is something that every single one of us has. Have you ever had a dream and had it come true? Or felt a feeling of déjà vu? Or just had a feeling that something was off, and you were right? That’s your intuition. Whether you want to go forth with it or not, you have it.

God created us in his image, why would he put something within us, and then tell us that we can’t use it?

When I first started learning this information I threw out my emotional ties to tarot, and just wanted to learn if I could in good conscious use it. I genuinely wanted to know if it was ok. I didn’t want to be doing something that was not in favor of God. This information I give you is completely void of emotion and just a pure logical explanation of my results of the research.

If you have any questions or comments, I would love to hear them.

About Me

Leave a comment

Hi everyone. When I started this blog, I had no idea that I would be having to write a blog right now, so I really had nothing prepared. To be completely honest, it was a momentarily spontaneous action, that has me stupefied. I’m not sure what I was thinking, apparently I wasn’t, but now that I started I might as well go with it right? I am not the kind of person that can think up a blog post in a matter of seconds on the spot. I need to have rough drafts and edits, and plan it out all carefully. Me and improve go back a long ways, and its not a pretty history. I figured I could make my first post an about me section. If someone is at all interested in what I have to say, then I imagine they would be interested in who I am too.

For basics, I am a mother of one, I am a loving wife, and a lover of animals. We have two dogs, one cat, and our family is growing. Were thinking about getting pigs and chickens and cows, horses, and maybe ostrich, some alligators would be nice… Ok the last two was a joke, but we want to get a property so that we don’t have to pay 10 dollars a gallon for milk. Another passion of mine is food. We eat traditionally, like the Amish. That is a subject for another time though.

I started my spiritual journey when I was really young. My sister, Cheri, is pagan, and as I grew up I was really close with her. She had a big influence on me. She taught me the basics of the religion and it all resonated very deep within me, even at a young age. I also have always wanted to be a counselor, so when I learned about Tarot, it was something that I was really curious about. My other sister told me that someone else had to buy me a Tarot deck first. So I decided I would wait.

Years passed before someone finally realized that I wanted a Tarot deck. My husband was the first person to give me one. I was so excited, but when I got it, I didn’t like it at all. The artwork was subpar, the connection was nonexistent, and the readings it gave were confusing to say the least. We decided to go and get one that I had my eye on for a while, the Deviant Moon deck. (This goes to show that if you are waiting for someone to gift you a deck, go and gift yourself one, it will mean so much more to you.)

Three years have passed, and I’ve been learning it off and on until about 6 months ago I picked up my deck and haven’t been able to put it down since. Its amazing fast you can learn if you really put your mind to it. Since then I have been like a Class A personality studying at Harvard. I signed up for a correspondence course through The Tarot School, and Im giving free readings through Biddy Tarot. If I am away from my deck for too long, I get the shakes. If there was an AA meeting for Tarot readers, my husband would be the first to sign me up.

Counseling people has been my lifelong dream. All I want to do is help people. That’s all I care about. Being a Tarot reader to me means that I can give people the guidance they need to get through life, and feel empowered while doing it, because they are doing it themselves. Its the most amazing feeling, and I love every second of it. I eventually want to go professional, and maybe even learn different ways to help people. Right now I’m thinking about energy work, like Reiki, but for now I am still learning Tarot, so that’s what I will focus on. This blog is the next step in my growth, I am excited and scared at the same time, but I know it will help me immensely, and I only hope that it will help whoever is reading this, as well.

Bright Blessings
