How to Work With The Tarot


The Tarot is an Ancient Art of divination. Used by the Egyptians to gain insight and answers. The Tarot when used correctly will work beautifully for you in a positive way. Most use the Tarot to provide Psychic Readings for others who may be in need of direction and life guidance. There are a whole host of reasons why someone may consult the Tarot for answers but that is a whole new subject.

The Tarot consists of a deck of 78 Cards. 22 of these cards are Major Arcana which depict major events. The other 56 cards represent minor events in our life and are the supporting cards to the Major Arcana in a reading.

2. Swords – Represent Action, Movement & Struggle

3. Wands – Represent Ideas, Growth…

Survival Techniques for dealing Energy & the Environment



I have noticed recently that the more spiritually sensitive I become the more the environment is affecting me both mentally and physically.

What do I mean by this? Allow me to explain. As we breath in the air our bodies absorb Oxygen which is our vital life source, without it we cannot survive. As the breath revitalises and re-charges our bodies through this inhalation the quality of the air matters greatly, because if we breathe in polluted air this is what our bodies also absorb with each breath. With each breath we are also absorbing the energy of our polluting_factory1
environment on a spiritual level. This of course is more obvious and is felt much more intensely as we become more sensitive and attuned to the spiritual aspects of our lives. For example: think about the times you have visited the seaside/coast and your natural re-action might have been to stand looking at the ocean and take in a big gulp of sea air. You may have felt re-charged and energised as you did this, but I have to stress that it is not just the good quality sea air you are experiencing  but also the purity of the energy from the ocean,  your body feels it. Remember the times you may have walked in a forest and again the air and surroundings as you connect with nature give the feeling of being at one and re-charged. When we connect to any element of nature; earth, air, fire or pexels-photo-240040water we feel it and our bodies respond positively. However, it is not always possible to be in these natural wonderful environments and many of us have to live in towns, cities and places which  may not be conducive to good energy and health giving air. So how can we over come this and deal with this so that our environment does not affected us in a negative way?

I have found that through my own experiences with different energies and environments my body will re-act almost immediately in a spiritual, but mostly physical way. Let me explain; when I travel to different areas of the world with my work I come across some fantastic places for energy and in these places I feel calm, at peace and my body responds by allowing me to feel light and energised. However, when I visit a place where the energies are not conducive to human nature and are polluted my body responds with discomfort. I get aches and pains and feel generally low on energy. So what can we do?

I will share with you my survival techniques for dealing with a polluted environment which is not good for anyone, but is felt more intensely by the sensitive or spiritually attuned person.

  1. Drink more water than usual
  2. Eat life giving natural foods such as alkaline food.
  3. Burn incense in your house/room.
  4. Burn essential oils in your house/room as this keeps the air quality purer
  5. Use Himalayan Salty Lamps to purify the environment
  6. The use of sound can be very effective for clearing energy – try a singing bowl or drumming.
  7. Take a ‘Special Bath’ to cleanse your body and energy. *please see below for ingredients for a ‘Special Bath*.
  8. After your bath cleanse your energy with Sage and an essential oil spray if you have one.
  9. Go for a walk in nature as often as possible & connect with the elements of earth, air, fire, and water, and ask for the cleansing elements or fire and water to be activated.
  10.  Cleanse the chakras and aura more regularly
  11.  Sit in meditation to rest & re-charge the mind
  12.  Cleanse the house using the elements of earth (salt), air (incense), Fire ( candle) and water ( filtered water if possible).
  13. Think positive thoughts

Special Bath Ingredients 


  1. Run a bath of warm water
  2. Put Candles around the bath
  3. Add the following :

a) 2 cups of Magnesium Flakes – these help to relax the muscles and ease any aches and pains

b) 2 small cups of Himalayan salt – this will cleanse the skin

c) 16 drops of Lavender Essential Oil – or any essential oils which are cleansing or which you particularly like


d) 5 capfuls of Star Child Love Potion Oil ( this is optional if not available).


e) Sit back and relax in the mineral rich bath for at least 20 minutes.

f) After your bath use sage to smudge. I burn sage in its dried form with the leaves and smudge my auric field.

g) Spray your auric field with a good quality essential oil spray. I love the ones from The Goddess Temple in Glastonbury these smell great and are infused with the certain qualities depending upon the one you choose.

I hope this small changes will help those of you who are sensitive to your environment. Please feel free to leave any comments.

Many blessings to you all

Trance Mediumship

What is Trance?


The medium allows their conscious self to blend with the Spirit which empower and overshadow the medium to give proof of survival. The medium is not completely taken over and may maintain a degree of control, and is able to return to full consciousness at any time.

The medium will enter in to an ‘Altered state’ which is much deeper than that achieved through regular meditation. When the medium has reached their own level of trance then Spirit can draw close as the medium relinquishes control to the world of Spirit. The level of consciousness will very much depend upon the ability of the medium to attune to the correct level for trance to occur.

Spirit move into the mediums Aura & influence their voice box and physical body.

What Are The Benefits of Trance?

In my experience trance can greatly increase the mediums attunement to the world of Spirit. It will train the medium to go within deeply while lowering their own physical vibrations of the body, and at the same time increasing the vibration of the mind, which enable them to achieve a higher attunement to the Spirit. As one sits more frequently for trance then one will naturally become more closely attuned to the other world. The benefits of trance can not be over estimated. Gordon Higginson said that all mediums should begin their development with Trance. I know that through my own personal experience it has helped me with my mediumship on all levels especially with the evidence.

How Deep Do Mediums Go In Trance?

There are varying degrees of trance. Ranging from a light trance where inspirational speaking can happen to a deep trance where the medium has lost ability to use their thinking powers.

The spirit will never be inside the mediums body even if it may look like this. The spirit of the medium does not leave the body while the spirit communicator is working with the medium. It is a blending of their energies together in order for communication to take place.



I am currently siting for Trance and I manage to reach a level of consciousness where I am in and out of the Trance state. Sometimes I will be aware of noises in the room and of what is being said, and at other times I am not aware at all. That is perfectly normal.




There are many levels of consciousness.

Normal Functioning awareness
Day Dreaming, ESP heightened psychic awareness, concentration, creativity, awareness of the spirit energy
Light sleep, light trance & healing
Deep Delta
Deep sleep, deep trance


First Level = Relaxation

Second Level= sitting in the silence. Pictures come in to the mind. Some of these pictures or visions can often provide answers to problems in life. These answers come from the divine source which is within you. They are not usually from a discarnate spirit.

Third Level = being aware of the power of Spirit around you. Your aura may get bigger to enable you to feel the energies. While you are in this ‘altered state’ Spirit can pass messages to your mind. At this level you may also get to know your guides who will come close and pass on knowledge etc.


Deeper levels of trance do exist but we will not discuss these in this article.

Is Trance Safe?

Yes Trance is perfectly safe done under the correct conditions and with the right guidance and education. The medium is perfectly well protected while in a Trance state by their own guides and helpers.

You will find that most Trance mediums have a ‘main guide’ who will prevent any unwelcome spirits coming into the mediums aura. They look after the mediums welfare.

While a medium is sitting in Trance they should be with another person so they can look out for them. A medium in Trance should not be touched while in the altered state, so having a person with them who is educated in the ways of Trance is essential.

Should I sit Alone for Trance?


It is not recommend that the medium sit alone for trance in advanced stages of development, however, it is fine to set the intention to develop & sit for the trance state when you first start. Try to sit alone for 20 minutes each day in meditation with the intention to develop and reach trance. One of the reasons that the medium should not sit alone in Trance is that the spirit person would have no one to speak with. When a medium sits for Trance it is usually to deliver the teachings of the Spirit through philosophy. So what would be the point of the medium sitting alone to bring through Spirit teachings and there is no one to listen to them. That to me seems like a pointless exercise. As the medium begins to go deeper in to the trance state then it would be advisable to have another person present to make sure they were not disturbed or touched while sitting, and so that Spirit person has someone to speak to.

What should I expect during a Trance Sitting?

A Trance sitting can vary from philosophical teachings of the spirt to evidence of a loved one coming through to speak to you. In my experience though it is mainly a guide coming through to give the teachings of the Great Spirit to help us understand life.

I have witnessed a loved one coming through giving profound evidence to the sitter and I have to say it is by far the best form of communication for me. Of course when a loved one communicates in Physical Mediumship through the voice box that is outstanding, but here we are discussing Trance.

Healing can also take place during a trance session & it is much stronger when the healer is in a trance state at some level.

Do I need training to do Trance?

The best training in my opinion is one you can do alone, and that is to Meditate on a regular basis and allow your meditation to reach a deep level where you can sit naturally for a period of time. From here you can start to work towards achieving the Trance state. This is when guidance will be required form a professional Trance Medium. Once you have been shown and taught the basics and you have a good understanding of the practice then by all means sit in trance with another person who also has understanding and has been correctly trained in Trance.

I can honestly say form personal opinion that being able to achieve the Trance state has brought my mediumship on in leaps and bounds, I believe that the level of evidence I am able to deliver has been possible because of my Trance development. I would strongly advise any medium who is serious about their development to consider sitting for Trance. Do not be afraid. Fear comes from being uneducated about the subject so learn as much as you can and take the correct teachings for your own development. See and feel who you are drawn to as a tutor and follow your intuition. Above all enjoy the experience it is truly amazing.

Your Relationship with Money & Materialism

Material possessions we have here on earth matter not in the afterlife.

We may place too much emphasis on material possessions. How much of your own life has been focused upon getting your house, the car you drive, clothes we wear, things we own?
Now I am not suggesting for a minute that those things mean nothing here on earth for it is essential that we have a home, a roof over our heads. We need to work to earn our living so that we can pay for our home, pay our bills and feed our families. Yes these things are important, for without them life becomes very challenging and stressful. It is an essential requirement of man living in this physical body that basic needs are met.

Most of us here living in England are fortunate enough that if we work and follow the correct path then these basic needs will be met. However, as we are all well aware, in some less fortunate countries we can clearly see the effects of not having basic needs met. In Africa we have starving, homeless children and families, in fact this can also been seen in a great many other countries too. But this is another subject in its own entirety.

Let us focus now on our own attitude to money and possessions. Money is a tool only. It is something we need to use wisely in our society to trade for our basic needs. Thats it.. in a nutshell nothing more nothing less. We trade our hard earned money for a home, food, electrically, gas, petrol, clothing the list goes on. It is our attitude to money which counts. piece-of-paper-2What is your relationship with money like? Have you ever considered this? Money is not a ‘God’ it is a tool which when used in the manner in which it was designed for can be positive. When we do not have enough money what happens? We become stressed, worried, we cannot meet our basic needs and pay bills and buy food. That is when we need to really look at our relationship with money. We can be our own worst enemies and by overly focusing on finance which can bring blocks into our own lives. When we stop focusing on money and giving it too much importance then it will flow. Sharing also comes in to this bracket of blocking the flow. We also need to give to those less fortunate than ourselves when we have the money to give, this simple act will indeed increase the abundance within your own lives. It is a natural law of cause and effect.

Possessions are not ours really, we never actually own anything it is all on loan. Now I am not referring to a loan like that of the bank. I am speaking about our time here on Earth. We cannot take anything physical into the Spirit World when we pass over ,which176 also includes our physical body. Our time here is limited and the things we accumulate here belong to earth and the physical. None of this matters in the Spirit World.

As Red Cloud States “ The only thing you bring into my world is Character. What will you bring into my world when you come over here?”

When we are able to let go of the importance of material possessions we are free. We become free of the chains that have been created by man in his search for perfection on the earth plane. We may think that because we reflect outwardly a perfect life we are indeed perfect and in keeping with with life & universal law. Maybe we have a comfortable home, we work hard, we pay our bills, we drive an ok car, we go to church and we give to charity, we look after our family. However, this all portrays good and quite rightly but how is it done? In what manner and frame of mind are all these things perceived? Do they take prevalence over happiness and a good and kind heart. When we give to charity are we really considering those it goes to? When we help a friend in need is this done without judgement an expectations of a return? Check these things within before we give as they will be meaningless unless it is done with the correct intention.

This leads me on to your to good deeds done here on earth with a good heart. It is so important that when we do good for another we do it not to receive ourselves but to enrich the life of another person.fd8087916f9e905ca96af529a21b5422--money-is-not-everything-diva-quotes That good deed can be to simply care and love someone unconditionally. It can be to help another out of their troubles, maybe we need to give financial help to another and we know at this time they have no way of repaying us. However, we give unconditionally.

Red Cloud States “There is no such person as the ‘Devil’ but materialism is a very real devil to mans better self”.


Letting go of placing our focus on material possessions can be a powerful exercise of release. I am not saying you need to go and give away all your material possessions I am simply suggesting that we do not place too much importance upon them, like money they are a tool. A tool to enable you to live without threat and in relative comfort. But it is not the totality of life. So today practice as much as you can the letting go of focusing on material possessions and money. They are simply tools provided to us while on this earthly existence to enable us to live in a manner which our earthly bodies require. When one can do this one becomes at peace with themselves and is truly following the spiritual path of enlightenment.
