bad vibes, bad karma, bad things all around

Namaste, folks.

this is authentic
this is authentic

I just want to talk about something that is immensely concerning to me: the “spiritual” Instagram universe.

I use spiritual loosely– it’s falsely spiritual. It guises itself as being spiritual when it is really ego-based which is the opposite of enlightenment and sacredness.

Rather than being a gathering place for like-minded people to share ethereal beauty, it is an on-going performance piece and a pit of lies, under a mask of being “one with the earth” or “lover of all things spiritual” etc. All I see in my newsfeed and from so many people that I follow that seem to have these hippie/gypsy/boho/witch-y accounts are “FOLLOW FOR FOLLOW!” and “SHOUT OUT TO 100K!”, posting the photos of others without credit, and posting photos of other IG users with pretend compassion just so they do the same and increase their follower count to the next thousand… where is the spirituality in this? What a joke! What an absolute joke!

Feeding the Ego is the most earthly thing a person can do. Nothing keeps you more grounded to these low energies, no matter how many posts you have afterwards that state how much you love the higher frequencies.

It is all a game. It is all a show. A circus act. There is nothing authentic about many of the experiences of spirituality on Instagram.

Obviously, there are a few exceptions to this rule, but if you’re feeding this perpetual black hole of false sacredness, then prepare to live with the karma that follows. Ten thousand followers won’t help raise up a heavy soul. Ten thousand followers won’t authenticate your spiritual experience. This is not the kind of spirituality we want to feed to people just finding their ground. This is the easiest way to get lost in falsehood and remain dissatisfied when a real spiritual life is the most gratifying experience of all.

Stop clowning around and focus on the spirit, not the ego.

Are you finding a disconnect between the spiritual lifestyles displayed through Instagram and other social media? Do you struggle with this yourself? Share in the comments. We are in this together.

Blessings, Love&Light.
With great concern for the spiritual future,

Tarot’s Tea Potions Bottle Contest!

Namaste, friends!

I made something pretty cool! But I won’t be selling (due to licensing requirements for selling food and drinks) but I will be gifting them in various Instagram contests!


Have a taste of something for the mind, body and soul…

Making tea is a meditative experience that takes patience and awareness. The very act of stopping your worldly cares to boil a pot of water and prepare your loose leaves is calming and can turn an emotional or negative moment into a quiet and contemplative pause from reality.

Different tea leaves also have specific spiritual and physical purposes. They can calm anxiety, they can invigorate your senses, they can heighten your awareness before an intense yoga session… The opportunities are endless, as are the benefits of quality blends for living a healthy spiritual life.


And so, a Tarot’s Tea Potion Bottle from Seeking Celestial Grace, full of delicious tea blends, can help kick-start (or continue) your transformation from the inside and have it extend into your spiritual life!


Potions are available in 1-cup brew, 2-cup brew, 1 pot brew, or 1.5 pot brew sizes. The contest running this time around will be for a 1-pot brew size of either The Star or The Lover blends. I will be picking one winner for each.


Each label and tag are hand-painted and hand-designed, giving the potion a more authentic look and feel for display on your alter or in your sacred space. On the back of each tag, steep time and water temperature recommendations are featured. Potion (tea) blends are named after Tarot cards in the Major Arcana…


The Lovers (A chocolate black tea & vanilla tea rooibos tea blend):

The Lovers represent a perfect union and passionate love. The chocolate and vanilla blend in this tea intertwine to create a smooth and invigorating flavour sensation. Bring yourself comfort, warmth, and passion with this smooth blend. Black tea leaves are believed to help with blood flow while rooibos tea leaves are said to have cancer fighting agents.

IngredientsBlack tea, yerba mate, stevia with chocolate, ginger flavour, rooibos with vanilla flavouring, flowers


The Star (A ginseng green tea & hibiscus rosehip tea blend):

The Star represents spiritual awareness, inspiration and a sense of serenity. This tea blend increases concentration and awareness and the hibiscus and rosehip are believed to have antioxidant effects; better your physical self to better your spiritual self.

Ingredients – Green tea with ginseng root, citrus flavouring, Hibiscus, rosehips with berry flavouring, flowers

Drink it, place it on your alter as an earthly offering, or just sit them on your counters for a magical piece of decor… it’s your choice! But in order to enter to win one of these Tarot’s Tea Potion Bottles, you need to read the contest rules on my Instagram account: @seekingcelestialgrace

Contest is only open to Canadian and US residences.

Tea leaves are purchased from a bulk supplier and as such, may have come into contact with nuts, gluten or other allergens. Seeking Celestial Grace’s owner is not responsible for allergic reactions to the Tarot Potion Tea Blends.

Good luck & blessings!

shadowscapes review :: my new favourite deck

Namaste, friends and new visitors!

Yesterday, the mailman brought me the tarot deck I researched, fell in love with, and just had to have. I have been waiting for it, for a while and now it is mine, in my hands, ready to become a part of my daily life: SHADOWSCAPES tarot deck by Stephanie Pui-Man Law and Barbara Moore.


What can I say about this deck but wow, I’m in love. I am truly in love with this beautiful piece of sacred divination art. I took it out and admired it yesterday, wrapped it up, slept with it next to my bed to attune it to me and this morning I finally had a chance to read it, ask it questions about itself and get to know it, truly…

First, let me begin with my favourite card: THE QUEEN OF CUPS.

behold her beauty

While it was difficult to really pick a favourite as every single one of them are outstandingly beautiful, this one really resognated with me. Last night, when I was looking through each one of them and getting to know them, visually, this card spoke to me. I stopped on it for a very long time and felt as though it was my card. I felt like it was a representation of me in the Shadowscapes Tarot deck. And the more I stared at her and devoured her, the more I felt it to be accurate.

Pictured is a woman who is illuminating. She radiates grace and beauty. She walks on water while floating on the winds of the sky – she is a combination of two energies; air and water. This is accurate of my sign Aquarius, as it is actually an air sign while being a water bearer. She is connected with life, with animals. To interact with her is to be touched by grace. The creative universe drops from her very essence. She is led by this desire to follow the spirituality that draws her, though, who knows where it may lead…
While my reading of this card sounds like I am being the least humble person of all time, I suppose I am seeing the goddess within, who constantly struggles to show her face behind her earthly veil.

The Shadowscapes mini booklet described the Queen of Cups as simply as so: “She is poetry in motion, imagination incarnate. She heeds her intuition and follows her heart. Though her steps seem random and impulsive, they are guided by instinct.” I would say my reading of the card was pretty accurate to the intent of the artist. That’s how easy it is to create detailed and perfect stories of these cards without assistance: the imagery paints a perfect picture for the novice or advanced Tarot reader. It speaks to the open, spiritual heart.

I decided to continue by reading the cards as I usually do when I get them a new deck, by asking them three important questions about themselves:

What does the deck want me to know about it? – TWO OF CUPS

The cards wish to form a union with me, one of earthly energies and spiritual energies, entwined. it offers me love and a cup of abundance, of flowing grace and knowledge. It wishes for our roots to grow around each other, deep in the soil of understanding, as we read together and become spiritually fruitful. We have a relationship, now. We have a bond.

I am so touched that the cards feel that way about our bond, because I fell in love with it as soon as I browsed through each card mindfully. I feel honoured to be in this union with the deck.

Which card do you want me to see? – KNIGHT OF WANDS

The cards are regal; strong, yet graceful. And they are on an intentful path towards wisdom. The cards wish to illuminate and lead me in the direction of good and positivism: this is it’s goal. The cards are passionate about this intent.

I’m glad to see that the cards read with purpose and intent. I am happy to know that their goal, as is mine as a tarot reader, is to make the path clear and to head there confidently, gracefully…

What do the cards think of me? – SIX OF CUPS

There is a youthful innocence about me, as I hope to ‘play’ the role of ‘host of abundance’ when I read, and give sustenance to the souls of all and any who accept what I offer them. I aim to illuminate a path to spiritual grace but can sometimes get caught in the almost nostalgic-like pleasures of my generosity, that I may be pouring my energies into those that do not even care to receive. I take joy and pleasure in these acts, regardless.

Child-like innocence is an absolutely accurate representation of me, and as both a Lightworker and an Empath, I truly pour myself out into any and all people, offering myself up endlessly, despite how draining it can sometimes be. Perhaps the cards are warning me to recognize this, so as to not deplete my abilities and energies.

my 3 card reading & the beautiful backing
my 3 card reading & the beautiful backing

Overall, these cards will definitely be my main deck for readings. While the little booklet it comes with does offer very short, two-sentence blurbs about each card, allowing them to be used by beginner readers, I really think this is a deck that needs to be learned and known by novice and advanced readers.

This will be a bond that I form slowly and beautifully over a long period of time, and I believe we will continue to learn and grown and understand each other better through each reading and journaling activity that I do with the cards. I am so happy that I did my research into these cards and got to know them before I bought them; it made loving them so much easier when they arrived at my doorstep. The art is ethereal, soul-touching work, and it is truly like stepping into a new world with each card I read.

Do you have a favourite deck? One that moves you as Shadowscapes has moved me? Let me know in the comments!

As always, thanks for reading, spread the word of the page to friends, blessings, love & light to you.

Etsy Shop!

Blessings on this lovely night!

I did it! I’ve done it! It’s here… my very first Etsy shop! Here are some of the things you can expect to find there:



These divination / crystal / tarot bags are made by hand, to order (no sewing machine used) … sewn together in a ritualistic fashion, with a positive atmosphere and energy, good intentions and blessings from Archangels.

The fabric is layered inside with a random tie-dye fabric.

The fabric choices are in picture two — these are made to order, so you select which one your prefer to have. They are all 100% cotton.
From the top, starting at the left, the patterns are as follows:

These drawstring bags are made with white and gold ribbon and slipped onto them is a bead that helps pull the strings together, easily.

Between the two layers of fabric, a dash of sacred White Sage from my local Native Reserve has been added, creating an even more sacred piece of work.

These hold large Tarot cards with room to add crystals or crystal wands. But these lovely bags with sacred imagery can hold absolutely anything! They are $6.00 USD.


Do you want to double the sacred intention of your bag? Add on a sacred image sachet to layer over your original tarot/divination bag.

These sachets have been decorated with the sacred imagery of 100% cotton fabrics in a ritualistic fashion, with positivity and good intention, and the blessings of Archangels, so you can be sure that you’re getting a product that does not contain any negativity.

For $1.50 USD, select the intention (the image) you wish and I will make it to go along with your bag order. They come in green or red but the colours are randomized based on availability.

If you select EGYPTIAN as your sachet choice, you can expect something as seen on the left hand side of image one.
If you select LARGE LADYOFMERCY, you can expect exactly what is seen in the centre of image one.
If you select SACRED GEOMETRY, you can expect something as seen on the right side of image one.

The other options have not been created – due to not having been ordered yet – but you can expect something of the same good quality and positive intention. See image four for imagery options. (Our Lady of Mercy in that image is my smaller fabric used for divination bags only… the large lady of mercy used for these layered sachets are larger)

If you wish me to invoke a particular intention as this product is made, please let me know as you order.


Would you like to enhance your phone with some sacred geometry and the healing power of crystals? No need to worry about EMT when your phone is constantly being charged by the positive energy of these reliably sourced crystals (from my local new age shop)!

Covered in various colours of Jasper, Amethyst, Citrine, and various Quartz, the sacredness of these stones shine through in the geometric shapes I have created on the phone cases.

These phone cases were created in a positive environment with good intention and the blessings of the Archangels. The crystals were cleansed but will be re-cleansed before being sent to their new home.

You will get either or of what you see in the picture (iPhone 6 Plus or the 5/5S), exactly as is. They are both hard cases. They are $10 USD.


Well, what are you waiting for, my blessed brothers and sisters?! Head over to the shop and have a look-see for yourself:

I intend on adding tea blends to the shop, eventually (if you have a look at the Sacred Art of Tea page, there is more information on that, there).


I got a tarot card deck that I had been waiting for, for forever: SHADOWSCAPES!!!!! I am so thrilled! I wanted to do a reading today, but it didn’t happen because it got too busy. I will hopefully have time, tomorrow.

Blessings, Love&Light!
Don’t forget: I am still offering FREE Tarot readings for a limited time. Please check out the TAROT READING page for more information.

in a creative mood

Namaste to all.

I was up pretty late last night, with the moon streaming through my window, as I was crafting and creating. As seen in my last blog post, I bought some absolutely beautiful fabrics with some pretty sacred imagery all over them. And so, I got to thinking what I could make with such gorgeous, positivity-infused things… and here is what came out of it:

astrological and sugar skull divination bags!
closed up and ready to travel

I made some beautiful drawstring bags for my Tarot cards, although they can be used for holding crystals, for placing sacred objects within or divination tools and the like… I made them with a sacred atmosphere present and with positive intention, calling on the Archangels to infuse my creative work with their healing presence. To amp up the use of sacred imagery as a way to infuse the objects that will be held inside, I made these, as well:

sacred imagery

Clear sachets to hold the same tools of the trade! I picked the images from the fabrics and used those as a focus for decorating the sachets. The left has Egyptian imagery (very powerful), the centre (which is my favourite) has the holy mother Mary in all her glory, and the right has geomancy-themed goodness: planets, planet movements, geometric shapes and layering, a compass to direct the spirit.

But these sachets didn’t blow me away on their own, despite the amazing imagery focused upon them. It’s when they were layered that they really popped and look so sacred and filled with intention…

astrological imagery layered with the holy mother Mary… double the sacredness and intention!
on the back, you can really see the astrology back peek through

Aren’t they magnificent, wrapped together?! I love them so much. I’m so pleased with how they look.

If I offered something like this – choose your drawstring fabric, choose your sachet imagery, and get both through the mail – would you buy it? How much would you pay for something like this? Leave me detailed tips and opinions in the comments!

Thank you for taking the time to read and reply to the poll. I’m interested on reading your comments about the bags, below!
Blessings, Love&Light,

blessed tuesday

Hello my blessed brothers and sisters!

Oh, what a beautiful day. Yesterday, my parents returned from California and with them brought an amazing haul of goodies for me, from Haight street — the Hippie District of California. I went to visit them today and they came out with two beautiful bags full of spiritual goods! I was blown away by the immense amount of things they found me.

look at all the sacred goods!
look at all the sacred goods!

From calligraphy paintings, to pieces of artwork by Navajo artists. From incense that’s burned in the temples of India to crystals of all colours, sizes and shapes. From a new Buddha incense burner, to bitty Buddha candles. From gorgeous sacred pieces of jewelry to new Tarot cards.


…yes! New Tarot cards! The Victorian Steampunk Deck! My parents said it was their favourite of all the ones they saw in Californian stores.

So, of course I had to delve into them, learn them, explore them, get familiar with them, and I did so with an introductory reading: my introducing myself to the cards and the cards introducing themselves to me. I asked them a particular set of questions and got some pretty incredible answers that made me quite excited about what this deck has to offer me!

First, let me introduce you to the deck a little bit… Have a look at a few of my favourites from the Major Arcana as well as the back of the cards:

cali3Whoa; that checkerboard pattern is easy to get lost in!  (And have a look at my brand new Tarot cloth, too!) The back is also accented in the suits of the Minor Arcana which I will get to, shortly. Have a look at the design of these cards: collage art of vintage and steampunk imagery. Very cool. Very bold. And very easy to read and understand. Already I am thinking this to be an excellent deck for beginners, despite the Minor Arcana changes. Let me get to those changes, now…

cali2The Minor Arcana have been accentuated using the popular fascination of the Victorian era: nature/botanicals. Instead of Cups, there are Dragonflies, Beetles for Pentacles, Moths for Wands and Bees for Swords. In case it’s a little too confusing, you can find a traditional logo somewhere on the card to help direct your thought accordingly. The dragonflies are my favourite cards of the Minor Arcana because of that turquoise; it’s phenomenal.

The first thing I did with the deck was pick out the card I was most drawn to. That ended up being The Hanged Man.

cali4This card is covered with content imagery that are suspended in time, as those it show all wait for answers and knowledge of eternal truths. This card accepts it’s fate as it waits patiently to be gifted with direction and understanding. But this card also encourages the reader to look at things another way, as change might come a little quicker to you. Rather than stare, hypnotized, as the pendulum swings back and forth, endlessly, turn away and you’ll find the knowledge you seek. Seems like a fitting card to be drawn to considering this deck is new to me, and will encourage me to look at things another way, and will bring with it eternal truths and answers to many questions.

I then shuffled the deck, held it with positive intention, called on Archangel Michael to assist me with finding true answers within the cards, blessed them with incense, touched my crystals to their back and began to ask the cards questions about themselves…

What do you want me to know about yourself? – THE HIGH PRIESTESS

This deck will illuminate the truth and there is other-worldly knowledge contained within this earthly object. This deck will be a mirror for a better understanding of what hides behind “the veil” of the self. It is sturdy, reliable and ready to help.

What card do you want me to see? – EIGHT OF BEES
This card represents the earthly element air, indicating that this deck is a sign of spiritual change. This element is also tied to thought which shows me that the deck has thoughts that it wishes to share with me. “I think…” it says; it wants it’s opinions and knowledge to be shown and known. This deck does not want me to be restricted to reading with just one deck anymore. It wants to relieve me of the anxieties tied to that kind of commitment.

What do you think of me? – THREE OF BEETLES

The deck believes me to be a creative entity, full of ideas. And it sees these ideas taking form through projects, creative pursuits and business ventures. Things look favourable for me in this regard. And the deck predicts good omens for me, as well.

the three question spread

What an amazing reading I got from this deck, and what a better understanding of it that came with it! I truly think this deck packs a punch, and it’s immensely easy to read. It came very natural for me, and it’s got me down pat as well: this blog is a kind of “business venture” for me, and having also started my day with a creative crafting run in search of goods for ideas I have brewing inside me, also related to extending the blog’s abilities, the accuracy is outstanding.

I see these cards being an important part of my readings from here on out.  I will spend the next three days attuning them to me before I read with them, again; wrapping them, sleeping with them near me, touching them daily. This is an important part of getting the cards to be in-tune with your energies and connecting the bond they have with you.

I am very grateful to have been blessed with such generosity from my parents. Before I end this blog for the night, I would just like to show you a few more pictures of the goods they brought to Canada from California, for me…

Thank you again, as always, for stopping by to read and share in this spiritual journey with me.
Blessings, Love&Light.

Post Scriptum:
To add to a day filled with sacred goodness, I decided to stop in my local thrift shop for no particular reason and was graced with this holy Orthodox icon:

beautiful holy angel Mary & the ever-blessed Jesus Christ

Also, I’m crafting some creative goodness, that perhaps I’ll be selling via this blog, shortly. Have a peak at some of these beautiful fabrics, as a teaser:


Gorgeous! What could I be making… Hmmm!
Namaste, friends!

the beauty in new beginnings

What an absolutely marvelous day!

This morning, I awoke to three e-mails requesting Tarot readings, and a fourth quickly followed. That immediately set my morning routine into one of high frequency and blessed nature. Instead of my usual meditations, I got right into reading two clients, which is much like a meditation in itself: it’s focused, I look into myself to interpret the reading accordingly, there are rituals involved, and it is quiet and sacred. With the added benefit of helping someone else with my reading, this makes the “meditative” practice of Tarot reading even more life-giving and spiritually satisfying.

My first reading, following the development of this website, came from a young woman who felt very lost. She has been drawn to move to a new location, she is unsure of what spiritual paths she should follow on, she needs direction and assurance of what is to come. Her reading was loud and clear, to me, and I think it was clear for her, as well.

It went as follows:

My client is being pulled to move – should she?: REVERSED DEATH

Death is a card that symbolized change. It’s about ending one phase of your life and starting a new one. For this to be successful, you must be open to the change and organize our life in a way that makes the change work. This means letting go of that in our lives which is no longer useful to growing and bettering ourselves. Reversed death means you are currently stagnant and there is some fear in you to let go and leave all behind that has let you down. Don’t be. If you no longer deny any opportunities awaiting you, you will be filled with abundant satisfaction and you will find what you are looking for.

Will my client find love?: THE FIVE OF PENTACLES

This card indicates some suffering – possibly financial – but it shows a couple united through the suffering (possibly united by the suffering). But do not be afraid! This, tying in with your other card, could simply indicate that you meet someone who is spiritually lost, like yourself, and is searching for answers about who they are. You *will* meet someone on your spiritual path, and they will also be on the same path as you – but remember that it may not be an easy one! You will be each other’s strength in difficult times.

Will my client be happy?: THE HERMIT

This card asks that you first spend time spiritually bettering yourself, that it’s a time to be alone and look inward. It indicates that you have all the answers you need to be happy within you, you just need to take the time to look and learn. Perhaps meditation would be a way to improve your inward understanding. Along with the Five of Pentacles, this card suggests that you will be happier to worry about finding yourself, first, before finding love. And, along with death, this card indicates that change will help guide you towards a happier you, because it is there where you will see your full potential.

A card fell out of the deck as I was shuffling for my client’s reading, and this indicates that the card wishes to be read; it is a message from the universe. It was THE WHEEL OF FORTUNE card.
This card indicates that there is a positive change of fortunate events that will happen in my client’s life. It indicates change and embracing that change for your true “destiny” to come to fruition. It indicates taking a risk. The card also has the points of North South East and West on it, insinuating that a move is possibly a part of this fateful change.

Whoa – what a moving and inspirational reading! This truly indicates positive change and stresses for a focus on spiritual gratification and development over earthly cares and concerns.

– – – – – – –

Following two readings this morning, before I rushed to spend the day at my brother’s pool, my cat showed up and jumped upon the cloth where I was reading. She laid down and showed a lot of interest in the cards I was using. So, I fanned them out and I asked her to pick one for me. She sniffed down the line and then began to nibble on the corner of a card, swatting it with her paw. I took that to be the card for the day, and it was THE MOON.


My particular Tarot of the Moon card is intense and rather breathtaking. It gives me a sense of calm and understanding, though it is a card of clearing and of potentially dark paths. Considering it arose following my readings for this new blog endeavor of mine, I take it to mean that I may be headed on a dark path, but I must be aware of the goal at hand. I must let go of whatever may hold me back from pursuing a spiritual career, along with teaching, and simply follow the path that I intuitively believe is right for me. Using my dreams and having internal dialogues with myself will allow for an easier journey, but I must be prepared to face challenges, and these lessons may come to assist me in the journeys to follow.

I really love the Moon card, because it is a perfect representation of the little spunky canine I have named Luna (which means Moon in Italian). She is wise, intuitive, and brightly “lit” and full of life, but sometimes she has a side to her that is dark and can throw you back from really understanding who she is. She is misunderstood and deceiving, all at the same time. She is a blessing, and sometimes a (very loved) curse!

Thank you again, for taking the time to read.
Please tell your friends about this site. Spread the word and spread the love!

Have a look at the ‘SACRED ART OF TEA’ page of this site, as it has been slightly updated and I hope to bring further exciting developments to it, soon. 

Blessings, Love&Light xo

Let’s get things started

My first post in my new blog! This is terribly exciting, as I’ve felt the overwhelming need to chronicle spiritual things on the daily, and I also wish to share them with the world. And so, Seeking Celestial Grace has been born!

The purpose of this blog is to create a gathering place of other-worldly things, thoughts, readings, opinions, ideas, writings, etc. This is my outlet for my spiritual life and I hope to immerse you in it, as well. Whether it be through sharing my inspired art, my daily thoughts, meditative mumbles, crystal-of-the-day or tarot readings, it will all be here. If I visit my favourite metaphysical shop, you will be a part of it. If I have a day filled with high-vibrations and happiness, you will be a part of it. If I have a low day, you’ll help me get through it by being a part of it. This blog will come alive through you reading it and sharing in these spiritual aspects of life, with me. So thank you for visiting!

If you don’t know who I am, here is a little bit about me (which will also be cross-posted in the ‘About Me’ section of my page):


My name is Claudia Amendola. In Italian, my name is pronounced Cloud-ya, hence why I am the ‘Cloud’… a temporary sky-creature who is just passing by and peeking at what this beautiful world has to offer. And I want to share many of those beautiful things with you!

I am an Empath and a Lightworker. (click the words for a description of each)
I have met & am with my Twin Flame.
I am drawn to ancient cultures and their religious practices, art, and mindful stories as they remind me of home.
I collect crystals (and might be heading into a Tarot deck addiction).
I burn incense on the daily and have Archangels by my side.
I love to read and I love to write.
I love to craft and I love to cuddle my pet babies (2dogs, 1cat, 2birds).
I love animals and I’m a vegetarian; meat-eating makes me emotional and Archangel Michael has guided me into a plant-based lifestyle.
I’m a teacher in a Gifted classroom.
I’m Disney fanatic who is covered in tattoos.
My happy places are up North at the cottage, in Paris, France, and at a Disney park.
I am a super geek (Star Wars, Harry Potter, X-Men, Narnia, Doctor Who & LOTR top the charts), and I cosplay at various conventions.

I’m also perfecting my Tarot craft. And I’m starting to do this via journaling, learning new cards, spreads, and meanings, as well as attempting daily readings as a way to get familiar with my cards, recognize trends that are reoccurring and assess them accordingly, and better my skills.

And so, today’s card that I pulled was: the hanging man (reversed)


How fitting that I pull this card on the day I leave the cottage! I just had an absolutely amazing week, in the peaceful paradise that is up-North. It is truly my happy place. But this morning, knowing we were to be leaving early afternoon, the day was filled with anxiety and anticipation for something of no satisfaction: the drive back home. The reversed hanging man also represents an energy leaving a life and things falling back into a usual routine… truly accurate! Out of paradise and back to home life.

We were also met with unbelievable traffic, causing our drive to be extended to 1.5hours more than usual. The reverse hanging man represents a moment of absolute standstill: traffic was just that!

This card, reversed, also represents a lack of spiritual nourishment. Because of the cold winds in the morning that turned me away from my usual dock meditation, the anxiety-filled day and the afternoon and evening spent in a car (with the radio on scan for the majority of it), I was definitely lacking spiritual nourishment. This card definitely has my day down pat.


Thank you, once again, for taking the time to visit and read my blog. I intend on daily updates, and the more I know my writings to be reaching and touching the souls of others, the more inspired I will be to keep writing!
