Connection Lost…

Trouble Connecting to a Tarot Deck?  Try This!

I know this trouble all too well!

We buy a new tarot deck, we read the manual, we sleep with the cards for a week or more, and well nothing….

No advice to be given, no connection felt., so what do we do in this case?

Leave your tarot deck for a month in the box it had come in and leave it in a trunk or somewhere you keep your other decks.

In the meantime, read the guide book of the deck, or a “tarot meanings for beginners” so to speak, it will help you to understand your deck’s mindset.

After the month has gone by, revisit the deck and see if there is a connection I bet you there will be!

A Few Surprising Reasons You May Not Be Connecting With Your Deck

  • If you have not taken a pink Himalayan or sea salt bath, these are especially important to take at least twice a week especially if you are reading tarot, or perform other mystical workings, they help to detox energies you may not realize you have absorbed!
  • The deck may not be for you, as heart breaking as it is, and I have had cases of this, there are some decks I just don’t work well with or connect with.
  • You may need to take a step back from divination or what I call ” psychic burn out” this is indeed a stressful part of your psychic, or tarot journey however it is essential that you take a few weeks to just sit back and relax, sometimes we read and do so much divination that our third eyes need some shut eye too!

Don’t give up, you amazing, mystic, you got this!

Tarot Of Enchanted Dreams Review

Hey lovely souls!  I was honored a few weeks ago to receive the lovely and kind Yasmeen Westwood’s deck “Tarot of the Enchanted Dreams”.  Read on to see my thoughts about the deck!

This lovely deck has 78 cards and is in your tradiitional rider waite suits meaning cups, swords,pentacles, and wands.

I absolutely adore these cards!  They have such a whimsically feel, and dreamscape vibe to them!

Each of the suits have a color to correspond to the suit for instance wands and orange cups and blue etc.

These are easy to read, and shuffle and they have such a gentle energy to them.

The back is a gorgeous blue starry night with a large and full white moon and it is simply captivating.

I usually am the one collecting the animal decks so this was such a treat for me enjoy and work with!

Groggy For Days

The Reason Your Pet is Exhausted Might Surprise You

Fluffy gets tired out from one minute of playing.

Oh my goddess someone better call the puppy ambulance ASAP!

Hold the Phone!

The reason your pet is groggy may surprise you!  Don’t panic yet!  If you have been to the vets and they have found nothing wrong through an exam then the reason can be on an energetic level and this is not something the vet office will detect.

Your Pet’s Chakra and Energy May Need a Reiki Healing!

If you’ve ever woken up after a good nights rest and still felt groggy, and then did a meditation or took a salt bath, you know that the groggy feeling most likely has went away.

Ever wake up and feel like your hung over just on your face?  You detoxed negative energy such as stress and in a physical manifestation it has form to feeling like there is a veil or a mask of exhaustion over your face.  Now notice if you wash your face when you first wake up that feeling goes away?  It’s because you cleansed the toxins.

It is similar with your pet.

Pets can be quite sensitive to energy including yours, if you are stressed out, your pet is most likely just as stressed out.  If you have changed ANYTHING even so much as washing a blanket, or a toy your pet loves this could also stress them out.  Any sudden change even the smallest change, can create stress in your pet.

How do we fix this?  Simple!  Animal Reiki!

How Animal Reiki Works

Animal reiki works similarly to how human reiki works.  The life force energy is channeled into my hands and then gently channeled to the animal where the animal then decides where the healing is needed most.  So while the animal is healing I also perform a chakra clearing.  Chakras are energy wheels that are vital to our wellness and health, as they are with our pets.  When these chakras are blocked they can cause an array of both energetic and physical issues.

This energy healing does not hurt your pet it is gentle cleansing that helps them to detox blocked up chakras and release negative energy that they may have gained from a past life, or this one.  Animal reiki can also help to increase the bond between you and your pet.

Are you ready to align your pet?

Pretty Little Empath

My Journey as an  Empathic Energy Healer

I knew as young as six years old that I was different from the world.  Colors had more meaning to me than just an aesthetically pleasing appearance.  I could hear the wind “whispering” knowledge, I could listen to the trees, speak of the ancient days narrating stories.

I always felt at home with animals, I was never very keen on connecting much with people, more so because it was so frustrating that I could not quite explain my self to most people.  This was because most people are so unaware of energy and I don’t miss much!

I also have always had a very unique connection to animals, often when I pet a dog or cat, I can hear their inner soul talk, I can feel the connection to them, I can even occasionally see  a past life of theirs as well.

At 24, I had became aware of just how strong my empath abilities were.  If you don’t know what an empath is, an empath is someone who feels at a deep emotional level, this ability allows them to be able to change or shift an energy in order to achieve a more positive outcome.

It was also at this age that I began to develop and strengthen my psychic abilities and tarot abilities.

As the years have gone on, I have became stronger and more in control and I will continue to do so because if you have ever had an empathic experience it can be mind blowing.

I also have became an animal reiki master and usui reiki master, so I can help others unlock their chakras and their awakening, and also so that I can help animals heal at a level that a scalpel or x-ray,cannot.

I also have transitioned myself from working full time, to working par time and having more time for the things I love and desire!

I cannot wait to see what comes next on this lovely journey!

 

Dooking Over the Rainbow Bridge

Veterinary Visits and Goodbyes

Hey lovelies

Today has been a very hard day for myself indeed.   I noticed my older ferret  of 4 years, was not any better, so I decided to take him to the vet.  It took a little bit because most vets did not see ferrets so I really had to look and finally I found one.

We noticed a week ago that he was skinny, and it was weird he was fine a week or so before we thought maybe it was the new cage and he just was adjusting to it.  Sadly it just got worse so it was time to bring him in.

I had high hopes it was something small like an infected tooth, or something minimal.

Unfortunately it was ferret insulinoma, it is highly deadly and fatal to ferrets I will be writing up another blog post about this at a later date.  The vet had said that it was so aggressive already there really wasn’t much that could done.  I didn’t want him to suffer so I had decided to do the best thing for him which was to humanely euthanize him.

The staff was amazing and so very supportive, and it helped provide some comfort as I sat in a room with him for awhile and just held him, telling him what a good boy he was, how much I love him, that I am still with him, I held him and cried, the vet and technician came into the room and were so kind very caring about the whole ordeal.

I will miss you bandit, thank you for giving me four years of pads stacked like building blocks, laughter, and most importantly ferret love.  You truly were the best ferret anyone could ever wish for and I am so glad you walked with me physically, through part of my journey.

Your wings were ready but my heart was not.

Snow, Heat,and Dance

November rain dances across the air.

I can taste winter making it’s journey again.

But even in the chilliest nights, your heat keeps my heart burning for you.

You kiss me once on the neck, first to play, then a bite.

Desire spirals through every vein, shivers crawl up my spine.

On the silken sheets I sit.

You remove, my shirt, oops my breasts are at your mercy.

I follow your gaze, waltzing my lips with yours.

Your skin touches mine, like thunder to lightning, lust crackling across my blood.

I smell the alpha, waiting to play with his wolf queen.

I trace my tongue across your chest, slow gentle little trails.

Going down, down, tracing your core, those sexy muscles tense, and tighten.

Faster than a hurricane our pants removed, panties gone, boxers lost.

Frustrating orange oceans of electrical currents roar along your skin.

Your hungry lips find my breasts.

Nips, yelps of delicious pain, and soothing tongue massages tug at the skin.

I arch my back, I feel your head moving lower, to a more passionate place.

Your tongue meets my temple, tracing along the lips, but still keeping me on the edge.

Your eyes flash gold for a second as you pause to catch my gaze.

I am on fire, drowning in lust, and howling with passion.

I need your power inside me now, I need the storm to pour, the wind to whirl.

You smile at me, enjoying the twisted pleasure of such a exquisite torment.

Your lips dance and tease along my lips,

I feel your energy meeting mine, inserting the erected pleasure deep inside.

We move together, a gentle pace, faster, and deeper, but never forceful or unwanted.

The snow falls, the dance moves so joyously, and the heat sizzles along our skin.

In the final moments of the release, I see you, the Clydesdale, the wolf, the dominant,

the lover, the warrior, and my best friend.

Our souls howl together, our hearts gallop through the astral realms

we are alive truly

breathing through each other’s cosmic lungs.

“We Got Our Pet From Craigslist”

How to Avoid Scams When Adopting Craigslist Pets

It’s not doubt that affording a pet can be extremely expensive.  You need to buy them food for their belly, water to cleanse their body, and a home to provide them a warm,safe place to stay.

Let’s not forget you have the annual exams, depending on the pet you may need vaccinations, or spay and neuter.

Uh oh!  You find your pet dog, Fluffy, has gotten into your children’s toys!  Little Tommy is missing his favorite action figure, only to discovered after an emergency visit, and X-Ray, that it is residing in your dog’s tummy!

Or maybe you’ve decided you want to adopt a puppy or kitten so you go only to discover the adoption fee is a staggering 600 dollars!

You decide you want to adopt from craigslist, here are some tips to help avoid scams.

  • DO NOT give any payment to anyone before you meet the animal.  One of the biggest mistakes people make is depositing money to someone BEFORE meeting your new furry friend.
  • DO have cash in hand when you meet up.  IF you decide to go forward and adopt the animal it is wise to have the cash amount with you.
  • DO NOT meet in a private place.  For obvious reasons
  • DO meet in a park, city event, or parking lot of a busy store, again it is more safe than entering someone’s home you do not know.

While no advice can make adopting craigslist pet’s 100 percent safe these tips will help you avoid potentially dangerous situations..
