Tarot for the 21st Century!
I am so grateful, happy, honored, etc. etc. etc. to be part of the Tarot Guild Family!
I thought I'd share some of my personal information and experience with you.
Since I was 25 years old, I've consistently worked on my spiritual path.
I was not raised with any religion so whatever I picked up on television or from hearing others talk, was what I got. You can imagine my surprise when I found out The Ten Commandments with Charlton Heston, wasn't word for word straight from the Bible! LOL
So, my spiritual search began and my goal was simply to find God, to have a personal relationship with him/her. As my years of seeking and studying passed I realized he was not to be found in religion nor ritual and as I grew, God grew, as I evolved, God evolved.
There is an ancient Sufi saying, " I searched for God and found myself and I searched for myself and found God." THAT says it perfectly, I have always loved this saying.
I never thought of myself as psychic or spiritual by the normal/average definition of those words.
I admired and envied anyone who had such special gifts and abilities but never dreamed I would or could ever do such.
Thus my spiritual search was/is the foundation of my finding my psychic abilities.
I also have to give much credit to the computer and Internet, it gave me the world to play and practice and work with and learn from. And you do tend to use and exercise more of your senses when you aren't sitting in the room with someone using just the 5 senses.
To me, spirit is more of a feeling than a voice in my head, and I get pictures more than I do words. But it really boils down to that "knowing." And yeah, I always have some doubt but it's a faith and practice thing. I listen to spirit and I use the Tarot for my main tool, and spirit works through Tarot really well with me. Experience has shown me that spirit is working with me.
One of my favorite readings that gave me more belief in the information I was getting is, I was making contact with my clients grandfather who had passed over. He was telling me he had been a farmer of wheat and I was relaying that to her but she kept insisting he farmed cotton and never wheat. So I'd drop it and move on but the man kept telling me to tell her wheat, every so often during the reading. I felt she thought I was being very stubborn because she was sure her grandfather had never grown wheat. I felt like such a fool by the time she left, but put it behind me and forgot about it.
About two weeks later she wrote me a note, she had been to visit her mother and was telling her about the reading and her mother said, " He did farm wheat!" And she said, "Mother, I always heard he farmed cotton??" But her mother told her, no, he was one of the very few in that part of the country that farmed wheat so it was quite unusual and rare... and she wanted to let me know.
I was SO thrilled to receive this, no doubt spirit moved her to let me know this for my personal validation.
Another reason this was such an important confirmation is that many naysayers say some psychics are simply picking up on what is in the mind of the client and not actually speaking with a deceased person and since she didn't have that knowledge in her mind, I had to be talking with her grandfather.
I decided early on in my readings to not limit myself by labeling myself this or that, but rather pass on any information spirit wished the client to know. This has really helped me to grow my own abilities also.
Every reading is nothing short of a miracle to me, I'm always as awed as if it were the first and only one.
I find each reading and client unique and precious and I am truly so honored that they are open and trusting of me with their life.
Well, that's all for now, but I'll continue to blog more of my amazing psychic experiences right here in the future.
Thanks for listening, Vicki
