traveling spirituality

Namaste, friends!

I’m heading out of the country tomorrow – a long overdue vacation! – and I began to set aside what spiritual/sacred goods of mine I want to take with me as I travel. It got me thinking:
1. I have too much that I want around me all the time!
2. What do others pack in a spiritual travel bag?!


Here’s what I’m packing in mine:

– 3 books; Doreen Virtue’s Angel Therapy Handbook (nearly finished it, and it will likely just be an unnecessary weight after the first day!), Discover Your Psychic Abilities handbook, and my Moon Spells book (which emphasizes that it is not a witchcraft book, by the way!)
– My Shadowscapes Tarot
– The Book of Dreams is a little leather, hand-bound notebook that my brother got for me in Amsterdam… I use it for Tarot notes. I wasn’t a vegetarian when he bought it for me, but I no longer purchase leather goods.
– A handful of crystals that resonate with me and feel appropriate for my travels.

But I still feel like I’m missing important things! I’m sure I’ll end up coming home with more sacred goodies than I left with, but I still can’t help but feel like I should bring more with me. Unfortunately, I can’t bring incense, as it cannot be burnt in the room I’m going to be in, but I’ll be on a cruise and the salty air will be incense enough, for me!

I cannot wait to be one with the sea, again. I am most energized and invigorated and spiritually driven when I am near an ocean (something that is no where near my home in the Greater Toronto Area). I’m ready for it, and I’m longing for it. The best part of cruises are the midnight hours on the top deck, in total silence, lying beneath the starry skies in the middle of the ocean. It’s outstanding.

What items do you bring along with you, when you travel or go on vacation? What is inside the spiritual pack that you carry? Share in the comments below!

Again, please head to my Tarot Reading page to see the delays that will occur in light of this travel. Thank you for your understanding.

And, as always, thanks for reading!
Blessings, my sisters and brothers!


Blessings, everyone. 

Today, we lost an important member of our family: our budgie Boe. 

Boe was not the first bird I had but he was the first domesticated bird I owned. I nursed abandoned birds to health and taught them to fly as a child. I always felt a connection with birds- I even had a birdwatching book and would spend hours in my backyard tracking the feathery visitors. When I went to a bird sanctuary for my birthday two years ago, my love of birds was re-ignited and a week later Boe (named as such by the Face of Boe in Doctor Who) was added to our family of animals. 

After a year, we realized consistent bonding was difficult and we got Pan a cage-mate and a brother, Pan. Pan and Boe bonded instantly. They groomed each other. They loved one another. 

Today, unfortunately, while cleaning their cage outside, Boe saw his opportunity and flew the coop. Who could blame him? The feeling of freedom… But now I imagine he is scared and lonely, and Pan hasn’t been the same since. 

Being a spiritual person doesn’t make loss any easier. My human ego causes serious attachment to the physical. I can only let go so much but when it comes to my darling animal children, it’s too difficult to not be attached. His flight hurt me far more than I imagined it would.

I’m in too distraught of a mindset to ask my guides and archangels whether Boe is okay, and I don’t want to selfishly ask for his return and then be angry with the fates if they don’t listen to my requests. I’m kind of at a loss. There are moments where I distract myself but then I’m brought back to thoughts of him. I only hope he is okay. And happy. But we all miss him; even the cat is confused at his lack of presence and lack of song…


In other news, I live close to Toronto and there is currently a fair happening called the CNE. It’s a big exhibition with rides and greasy food and the like, but the part I love the most about it that brings me back every year are the numerous booths of different countries with so many beautiful, sacred wares and the fantastic crystal booths. I got some beautiful blessed items. I cannot wait to show you all. Tomorrow, perhaps.

Goodnight, you beautiful stars in my universe…


Inspirational Questions Lead to Inspirational Blog Posts

Blessings beautiful brothers & sisters!

Sorry that there haven’t been daily updates as anticipated. When I don’t have much to share, I’d rather not be verbose just for the sake of verbosity. But today I have quite a bit to share, starting with a PM I got on Instagram that really inspired me to start writing this post.

An individual messaged me and asked me about their Tarot deck: all the cards have been negative recently! They tried cleansing them, they tried burning sacred sage over them, they tried leaving them under the full moon, and they even got the card Death twice this week! What were they doing wrong?! This is what I told them:

Firstly, DEATH is not a negative card. Death asks you to recognize something in your life that needs to end for something new and amazing to begin. In the Shadowscapes deck that I read with, death is represented by a phoenix, emphasizing re-birth! So, getting this card twice in one week is clearly an attempt from the universe that you ‘get the message’; recognize what in your life needs a big change to move forward, and get moving.

Secondly, negative readings are really a state of mind, in my opinion. I can find a good message or guiding lesson in all  the cards, even the ones that most people are afraid of or scared of. They often just want you to recognize something in your life that needs to be a bit different before abundance can be obtained. You need to tear down the foundations of your spirit before you can build yourself up to enlightenment. When you’re on the right spiritual path, you shouldn’t be comfortable! If you’re comfortable and pleased, then simply put, you’re wandering on an ego-lead path, and it’s the wrong one. Challenging readings or dark readings are often just a sign that you’re on the right path.

Third, if the tarot cards are purchased from a used items store or hand-me-downs, then they might be too intensely imprinted by the previous owners. Get rid of them. Or keep them aside but never read them. They’re not yours to read.

Fourth, are you taking the time to imprint your cards, carefully and delicately? Touch and look at every image, daily. Sleep with them by your bedside. Fan them out and hold them in front of your heart, filling them with positive love-filled intentions and thanking the universe for their guidance.

Finally, all these “negative” readings might just be telling you that you need a big cleansing, or that your chakras need cleansing! You can’t get a proper reading with blocked chakras.

What are your thoughts on decks that read “negative” all the time?


Last night I had the most curious dream. I wrote it down as soon as I woke for fear that I would forget it, despite how vivid and real it seemed.

I was in the middle of a forest, deep within, with bright greens and deep floral colours all around. I was surrounded by animals coming out of the forests, birds sitting in the trees, Fae folk (faeries in particular) with brightly coloured gorgeous wings, all around me and smiling at me, and dozens upon dozens of cats, with strange bright coloured geometric shapes floating above each their heads.
I was working intently with crystals of the earth and pieces of nature in a bowl, and I was being told by the other Fae that I was the fairy healer.

Unfortunately, it was at that moment, that I was woken up by my cat licking my face and meowing in my ear, at three in the morning (the witching hour).

Is that not bizarre? What do you think it might mean?

I have always had a deep connection with Fae folk, the good and the bad. As a child, I could see goblins dancing around outside my bedroom door and hanging from the lap on my ceiling. Some were wing-less, the ones on the ceiling had little wings. They were mischievous, mean looking things.

But my most comforting and beautiful memory of Fae folk in my childhood was when I saw a sparkle move through my window, float across my room, and make it’s way to my bed. I then proceeded to see that bright sparkle move away from the head of my bed and go back out the window. There was no doubt in my mind that that was a fairy.

I don’t really know what it would mean to be a faerie healer, but I will be asking my guides for more information.


I started a new craft form (because that’s what I do… I love to learn and experiment with new crafting ideas): Wood Burning!



-And I got two amazing new books today, too! But perhaps I’ll save talking about my collection of spiritual texts for another day…-

It’s far more difficult than it looks and I’ve already burnt myself a few times over. The altar box above is something I’m working on: those are just the outlines I’ve done but I have to use my other wood burning heads (they’re little pieces you screw onto the hot tool) to do sharing and various detailing. But, so far, I’m liking the way it’s coming out! I don’t really have plans on what to fill it with, yet, but I’m excited for it, most especially because it’s a piece of my own and would have more sacred intention within it. I am also planning to paint it with watercolour paint!

Are you working on any spiritual crafts, lately?


That’s all, for now! Remember, the moon is waxing, which means it’s a perfect time to start something new, create intentions to send out into the universe for things you want to grow or succeed, and to keep your mind focused on abundance!

Blessings, Love&Light!


Please make sure you are authentic about your spirituality. Please ensure that you credit and give praise to sources of knowledge where credit and praise is due. Don’t sit back and accept the praise given to you by someone for a spiritual or divination suggestion if you were influenced to do that spiritual choice by someone else, as well. It’s real bad karma. When you allow someone to credit you for an idea that wasn’t even your own, you’re soaking up the negative energies with that deceit. So be prepared to live with those spirits, which won’t be easy. 

I am seeing too much of this on Instagram, including finding people thank and grace others with praise for something that gave them personal suggestion for of guidance towards! I’m not looking for praise, myself, but I’m certainly deserving of credit. 

Be prepared to live with dark spiritual entities and real bad karma if you live an inauthentic life and pawn off my spiritual suggestions to you as wisdom of your own. Deceit is not wisdom. Deceit is darkness. 



colourful days

Namaste, beautiful, blessed people…

I missed a day of updating! The past two days, I’ve been pretty overwhelmed with readings (thank the Heavens! I am so blessed!), appointments, events, festivals…!

yes — festivals!

At a large park about 8 minutes from my house, a festival called, “Midsummer’s Dream” was happening — a hippie/gypsy event with live music, beautiful spiritual wares, fortune telling booths and colour-throwing every 30 minutes – an experience similar to the Holi festival in India! It was out of this world. The vibes were amazing. Everyone was carefree. Everyone had compassion for one another. Everyone was telling one another how amazing they looked, covered with all the colours of the rainbow.

It was a nice experience getting to release my inner-gypsy in public!

I’m not sure if I had mentioned this on my blog already, but Archangels are known to answer requests made by those who call out to them. I asked the Archangels, before going to sleep the other night, to give me a sign that I was on the right spiritual path, to clearly explain my spiritual purpose to me, and to ensure I remembered it when I woke up. The next morning, I thought back on my dreams and thought, “What the heck… where is my answer?” Now, remember, the Archangels always answer your requests, but you can’t ask how they will do it — that’s their own secret. So I was sitting there, in bed, disappointed, and I opened up my e-mail … the list of tarot reading requests from clients was OUTSTANDING! There was my sign! It couldn’t be any louder or any more clear! It is comforting to know I am headed on the right journey.

I also went to a tea leaf reader, yesterday. I was so thrilled with the opportunity to get a reservation with the reader who goes to my local tea room every Tuesday and Friday. I waited there, I anxiously saw her moving from table to table, and then FINALLY she came to me!

What a disappointed… When I encounter highly spiritual people, I feel their vibrations around my biceps. It’s an unmistakable pressure and “prickly” feeling. This woman had none of that. In fact, she barely looked at my tea leaves at all… she stared off at the table behind me, she looked at her watch a few times, she didn’t even peak at it when she sat down and immediately started talking about social issues. She grasped with a lot of questions that had me building up the foundations for her to “elaborate” on, in the most un-inspirational ways. She barely sat for 3 minutes and couldn’t wait to get up and go to her next client — but not without reaching her hand out for her payment. How people could play on the spiritual needs of people who need guidance for a few bucks here and there is mind-blowing and heart-breaking. I left heavier than when I got in. So disappointing…

Have you ever had a bad experience with a ‘spiritual’ individual? Or someone offering spiritual guidance?

Have a beautiful night, you beautiful souls!

Blessings, Love & Light,

short & sweet

Namaste, beautiful souls!

It’s late so let me make this short and let me make this sweet …
The new moon is bringing beautiful change along with it. I have a line-up of extensive Tarot requests and I’m beyond honoured! Usually, I like to get my readings done in 24 hours, but with so many (and many earthly appointments to attend in the upcoming days, as well), they might be delayed until Sunday. I thank you all in advance for your patience and understanding during this busy time!

But all this could not have been done without the absolutely beautiful gypsy that was my client, Vienda. She posted an IG about my reading with this: “Omg. YESSSSS. I just has the most incredible, intuitive + spot on tarot reading by the incredible @seekingcelestialgrace […] If you’re looking for some guidance, go + email her!”
The universe connects you with high-vibration individuals for good reason; mutual guidance – full circle spiritual connections. She reached out to me for guidance, I helped her not because I had to, but because I feel called to do it, to read and to assist any way I can, and without knowing it, she helped me by sharing that testimonial on a social networking app which opened the door to a flood of requests for my help — a full circle. A beautiful and sacred thing! I am so grateful to the universe, to all the beauty it has blessed me with.

I also got a whole bunch of outstanding crystal and mineral specimens today, and the connections I’ve felt with them already have been outstanding.


Blessings, Love & Light!



I just want to say thank you to everyone who has taken the time over the last two weeks to request my free Tarot Reading promotion. It has allowed me to perfect my craft, learn a lot about my cards and myself as a reader, and grow spiritually. I’ve read for about 20 people or so and I still have four more clients on my list, for this promo. The testimonials you’ve all provided me with have been outstanding and I feel so blessed and so honoured to have received them from those of you who took the time to write me one.

Now that I feel more confident and content with my craft, Tarot readings will now cost $5.00 USD. I have been told by a few clients that they’re worth a lot more than that, but considering this is not my primary income and I’m jut looking to help as many human beings as I can, $5.00 is a reasonable amount for now.

So, what will you get for $5.00?
My readings are all done with blessings from the Archangels, which are non-denominational celestial entities. I also select incense and crystals that I am drawn to, for you, personally, during my reading.

Readings are $5 USD for a minimum of a four card spread (including the card that represents you) but could sometimes extend, depending on how much the cards wish me to expand upon the responses I am getting (they have sometimes extended to seven and eight card readings!). This is influenced by the pull I would receive from Archangels and not my flawed human judgement. You will receive a very detailed and personal reading and a photo of your reading and the crystals I was drawn to.

What to do, to get your reading:

Please send me your full name, your birth date, where you live, and any questions or concerns you have that you’d like to be answered, or what you’d like your general reading to be focused on. Please note that I will never share your personal information.(Please read through the Terms & Conditions for my e.mail … by e.mailing me, you accept those conditions.)

I will send you a link to my PayPal account indicating that I have received your request for a reading. Payment must be processed prior to me proceeding with your personalized reading.

I had a lot of moving readings lately, but here is one in particular from a client who wanted clarity about a struggling Twin Flame relationship, friendships that she was leaving because they brought no spiritual satisfaction, and the cards just wanted to give her the confidence that she was headed on the right path.

What do the cards want my client to know about her romantic relationship? – THE CHARIOT:
This card represents triumph over adversity. You can ride confidently knowing there is hope at the end of it all. The chariot rider holds her hands outwards, recognizing that the universe must take hold of the reigns. Only when you and your love recognize that a Twin Flame unity is completely dictated and driven by the horses of sacred energy/The Universe, only then can you successfully move out of the “runner” stage of your union. The presence of the five turtles in the card represent challenges of the mind; difficulties, trials and tribulations that will have you questioning what you thought you knew about the union. The crab in this card indicates it’s protection of something sacred – your union – but also represents rebirth to reach the triumphant ‘end of the road’. Let go of the reigns, stop controlling the direction the horses of fate will take and just allow it to fall into place naturally. The universe knows what path is best.
What do the cards want my client to know about their unfullfilling friendships? – THE SUN:
You are seeing the light – you are signalling to the friends who do not help you become a better version of yourself that you have moved on and have joined a sacred flight towards spiritual bliss. This is all guided by the fates – it’s meant to be. As we start to achieve spiritual clarity in our lives, naturally, the friendships that do not feed our souls slowly fade away. Your soul knows what is best for you. You are headed in the direction of clarity of vision and immense joy. Do not let the mundane loss of earthly friendships of no spiritual benefit stir you off that path. You will be drawn to people on the same path as you. You will form friendships that are meaningful. But first you must let go of the ones that are not.
What else do the cards want my client to know? – FIVE OF WANDS:
You are facing dozens of obstacles and challenges in your path right now – that is usually what happens to a person as they had down a more spiritual path in their lives. But the wands call you to take action, stand tall against all challenges, because you will make it through even stronger than when you first entered the fight. While the foxes in this card represent those many forces that aim to stand against you, they also symbolize the sly and wise person that you will become when you overcome it all. 
Despite reading many of the same cards over and over, every reading I give you is personal to you and applicable to your questions and the other cards that have been drawn in the reading. No card reads the same way twice. You can always ensure that you will get an authentic understanding of the card, not something that is generated by a computer or copied and pasted from someone else’s readings.
Please check out my TAROT READING page for more information, terms and conditions, and my out-of-this-world testimonials from my amazing clients.
Soon, I hope to incorporate Oracle Cards into my readings to give clients an “overview” or an “objective/goal” that the Archangels wish the client to be directed towards.
I am also developing my skills in mediumship — but this one will take a while! It’s something that comes natural for me when I’m looking for guidance in my own life, but picking up on the guides of others is where I have trouble. I see auras with not too much difficulty (building up this skill, always!), but I still can’t seem to see those angelic guides that are always with us!
Thank you again, to all of you, for your ongoing support. I cannot thank you enough.
Blessing, Love & Light,

cutting energetic ties

Namaste, folks!

Today, I was blessed with the opportunity to read for four different clients and give tarot advice and direction for another client. What a busy, spiritually-packed day! The readings that came out of my sessions were packed with high-vibrations and understanding the cards came to me with such grace – the thanks for that goes all to the non-denominational celestial beings known as Archangels, as I ask them for clarification and guidance in each session I do. It flowed naturally, authentically, and each person I read for was overwhelmed by the accuracy of the reading. I’ve added some absolutely sensational testimonials to my Tarot Reading page, which will undoubtedly assist me when my free-reading offer is up and I decide to go to paid sessions. I’m not doing this to make a profit or live the rich life, by any means. I’m talking minimal cost for a significant output. I don’t think anyone should feel ashamed to charge for their gift, I’m just not prepared to do it, just yet. I’ll be guided in that direction when the time is right. My skills are improving with each read, my craft is coming together, and I am feeling more confident at the end of each session. It’s an incredible feeling!

But with it comes some downsides. There more energetically invested I am in this, the more I create unnecessary ethereal ties with the individuals I am helping. Thus, they begin to spiritually drain me, without their knowing! This is also a negative aspect of being an Empath. It is easy for other people’s energy to entwine with my own, because Empath energy is one that calls for those who need it most. And so, despite feeling invigorated in the afternoon from all the work I had done, by evening, anxiety set in and a vibrating pressure (it is like a weight on my neck, shoulders and lower back that is pulsating at a slow rate) was happening. It’s heavy stuff, and I’m continuously learning how to cut ethereal ties.

So what does that involve? Think of invisible tubes emanating from your body. Normally, these tubes are just floating around, soaking in the energies of whatever you’re focusing on… so if you’re meditating, it’s taking in high energies and lifting you up. But when you’re doing spiritual work, your tubes attach themselves to the tubes of others and rather than sucking in the good, the person you are attached to is sucking out all your good. They are called etheric cords, and Archangel Michael is my go-to for the cutting of them. Here are the steps, as taught to me by the amazing Doreen Virtue in her many books (my goddess!):

  1. Think of who you want to take energy back from (or if you are feeling drained in a public space, just imagine your etheric cords tied to shadow people)
  2. Close your eyes, breathe deep from the shallows of your body
  3. Call on Archangel Michael – this is an immensely personal part, but you can say, “Please, Archangel Michael, bring me back my energy and cut the cords that I have formed with (person/people).” I also ask him to please remove my energy field from anyone else as it is solely mine, and that he please protect me from further invasions that might deplete my energy field.
  4. Always say thanks to Archangel Michael and ask him to fill you with the Creator’s love.

The archangels are reliable sources for all spiritual assistance. I cannot stress enough about the power and grace they have. Call on them and they always come. Ask them for something and they always give. It’s outstanding.

Now, excuse me while I continue my etheric cord cutting and then start some spiritual art.
As always, thank you for stopping by, and thank you immensely to clients I have read for who have shared me with friends and loved ones. I am so grateful for the reading requests that continue to pour in. I am honoured!

What are your tips to unwind, replenish your energy and cut your etheric cords? Share in the comments!

Blessings, Love&Light,

Post Scriptum – I read for a LOT of Hierophants today! I wonder what the significance of that, might be…

my heart swells

Namaste, beautiful souls!

To those of you who have been viewing the website, taking the time to comment or share it with friends, thank you, thank you, a million times, thank you. Seeking Celestial Grace has gotten more hits in the last few days than I ever imagined, and Tarot Reading requests are pouring in, every day. I am so grateful and I feel so blessed. My heart swells.

Instagram has allowed me to make a connection with someone all the way across the world who seems to vibrate on the same plane as me. I cannot wait to see how the spiritual connection and friendship blossoms. My heart swells!

I am drinking delicious chamomile tea along with my darling, to calm anxiety and stresses that are rising up in our material bodies and taking bites at our souls’ energies. I am feeling calm, cool and collected. My heart swells.

And I also got a few spiritual texts from the bookstore tonight, that I cannot wait to delve into. One is about learning to better communicate with angels and better develop mediumship skills (by Doreen Virtue, no less… the goddess!), something I have been interested in for a while and have always felt drawn to, even as a young child, having seen sprites, fae and spirits. When I picked up the book, I asked for a sign as to whether I should purchase it; I turned the page and the name “Claudia” was written, right in the centre. Not a coincidence — even my darling’s eyes widened (and he’s quite the skeptic!). Claudia is not a name that you find often in texts! I am thankful for signs from my archangels, guiding me towards spiritual texts that are truly meant for me to read them. My heart swells.

Sometimes, it’s nice to just take a moment to recognize the beauty you’ve been graced with, and the blessings you’ve had in a day.

What are you most thankful for, as of late? What makes your heart swell?

Blessings, Love & Light,

New Oracle Cards!

Blessings, brothers & sisters!

I purchased a new set of Oracle cards today: the Archangel Oracle by Doreen Virtue.


First off, let me begin by saying that I love Doreen Virtue. I got “into” her (but she came into my life with perfect timing) when I read her book about Earth Angels a handful of months ago. It’s the book that led me to better understand my purpose on this planet and that my sense of not feeling as though I “fit in” was normal, because I am not of this planet, and I do not fit in. It allowed me to understand the term “Lightworker” and from there I was able to extend my research to find out that that was exactly what I was. Doreen Virtue allowed me to put a name to who I was, my skills, my gifts and made me feel less alone.

From there, I began to read more and more of her books (Currently reading Soloman’s Angels – a novel based on factual evidence and her clairvoyant conversations with angels – and Mermaids 101 … Signs From Angels is also sitting, waiting to be devoured) and she also introduced me to the power of invoking the assistance of the archangels, non-denomination ultimate spiritual beings – for everything in my life. This invocation has increased my vibration tenfold. I have even had random people come up to me and tell me that my energy is intoxicating and they just want to hug me… strangers! Complete strangers! Many with gifts themselves. I really credit Doreen for opening up my abilities through the divine act of invoking the Archangels.

And so, it was only fitting that the first oracle cards I was drawn to were that of the Archangels, by Doreen Virtue herself, who emphasizes in the booklet that the cards come with, that she infused them with intentions and blessings for the accuracy of the readings. Beautiful.



When I asked the cards to tell me about themselves, the Spiritual Understanding card came forth: Archangel Raziel’s message is “I am bringing you esoteric information and symbols and helping you understand spiritual truths.” Does any message get more clear than that?! And, with all honesty, that was the deepest purpose for getting the oracle cards: better understanding of spiritual truths. The cards have instantly made their purpose known and want me to know that they’re here to help me.

These cards are very easy to read. The messages on the cards, alone, gift enough understanding, along with the beautiful pictures which are based upon how the Archangels appear to Doreen Virtue when she speaks with them. If you want detail or need to elaborate, Doreen’s booklet expands upon the meaning and gives you a suggestion how how to work with that particular Archangel to achieve the goal that the card lays out (or overcome a struggle that the card anticipates).



My favourite card from the deck was this absolutely gorgeous, gypsy-like, bohemian depiction of Archangel Haniel on the Passion card. Having never seen a depiction of this particular archangel before, it was nice to see that there is one who has the same hippy spirit as myself. Passion was a very fitting favourite, considering these cards are extending my passion for the spiritual, mindful and enlightening.

I hope to learn these cards, imprint upon them and grow with them in order that I can extend my readings with my clients. I would like to begin adding Archangel Oracle readings to go along with my tarot readings as a kind of overall message from the Archangels for their individual lives. The greater the insight that I can help give them, the more my soul smiles!

Please don’t forget that I am currently offering a promotion of FREE TAROT READINGS via e-mail. Just visit the link at the top of the site that says, ‘Tarot Readings‘ for more information and for details on how to contact me.

Thanks, as always, for your presence and your spirit.

Blessings, Love & Light,
