1. You are an angel lover
You have loved angels all your life and can’t for your life understand how anyone could not believe in these benevolent divine helpers. You probably have images and angel figurines dotted around your house to remind yourself that angelic support and guidance is always available. You may collect angel-themed Tarot and oracle decks.
1. You are an angel lover
The root/base chakra is the energy centre located at the base of the spine that relates to issues surrounding survival, security, sexuality, fear and the adrenal gland fight/flight response. Any time you feel fearful of poverty or ill health, this energy centre is taxed and the flow of energy becomes blocked. The main requirement for a healthy root chakra on the emotional level is a basic trust that you are supported in life. People who have root chakra issues later on in life were often abandoned and/or abused as children. They never learned to feel safe. However, not everyone who has root chakra issues had an abusive childhood. Being overly obsessed with accumulating vast sums of money or being stuck in poverty consciousness also shows an imbalance here, as does sex addiction or frigidity. A sure sign of a dysfunctional root chakra is that you keep bumping into things, stubbing your toe, tripping… This means your energy is not grounded into your physical body due to a root chakra blockage. So what can we do to make sure this chakra is in balance? Quite a lot actually, besides wearing red (the colour of the root chakra) and using our intellectual understanding that we are supported – fear is just False Evidence Appearing Real. 1. Get organised. The more organised and in control you are when it comes to finances and spending, the smoother this chakra spins. Being organised is not the same as being a control freak but it does take some mental activity and actually writing down what goes out and what comes in each month. It also means that you do not spend more than you earn and that bills are prioritised before pleasure and leisure activities. 2. Have regular meal times and at least one hot, home-made meal a day. This gives your physical and emotional body a feeling of being nurtured/supported and keeps your energy levels even. 3. Spend time around trees. It is through the root chakra we ground our energy deep into the core of Mother Earth. Spending time around trees, naturally reminds us of the importance to allow our roots to soak up sustaining and grounding Earth energy. Try sitting with your back against a tree and just breathe for five minutes. You will feel recharged and grounded. 4. Dance the root chakra. Native/tribal music that is heavy on drumming is ideal as this connects us to Earth energy and to our ancestral blood line. When you feel connected to the past in this way, it is easier to understand how infinitely supported your existence on earth actually is. 5. Eat the fruits of the earth. Root vegetables are grounding, nutritious and very affordable. This is a great way to make sure you get all your nutrients if you are on a shoe string budget. Win-win! 6. Work with red, brown, black and grey crystals. Use...Read More »

After writing and tweeting about Holistic Tarot vs Fortune-telling quite a lot recently, I found myself under fire and had to block a couple of Tarot readers who thought it was a good idea to reply with attacks on my person. This is the tweet that drew the fire: A #Holistic #Tarot reading is like the natural remedy which treats the whole person, compared to the ‘plaster’ given by a fortune-teller. Some “warlock” and some “young Tarosophist of the year” called me ignorant, envious, divisive and lacking in fortune-telling skills based on this tweet. Whether they know about my work or whether they chose to judge me merely based on this tweet I will (gladly) never know. Yet this will not deter me from educating people and what I am about to share gives the absolute reason why – the victims. I had to deal with a victim of a Tarot charlatan only this morning – sadly not the first to come my way! She had been told by a ‘Tarot reader’ that she and her ex husband couldn’t get back together because she had been cursed by a third party. However, for a small fee, this ‘Tarot reader’ would lift the curse. My advice to anyone who has experienced this form of fraud and ‘psychic rape’: You have been lied to. Try to forget what they said and do not heed any of the ‘advice’ handed out. Next time you go for a Tarot reading, make sure that your reader is a Holistic Tarot reader rather than a fortune-teller. Never EVER get a reading from someone who claims to be able to predict the future with 100% accuracy or claims to be able to ‘remove curses.’ This should be common sense but common sense seems to be rare enough to be a super power these days: NOBODY can predict the future with 100% accuracy because guess what… the future isn’t set in stone! TWEET THIS As for removing curses… Instilling fear in a client and then offering to take away that fear for a fee is the oldest trick in the book and have been used across many a trade but seems to survive only in the world of magick and divination because of the superstition that is associated with it. These are the true snakes of the Tarot world and their karmic payback will be massive. Basically, they operate on the principle that if you are that gullible, you have nobody but yourself to blame. We need to move away from fear and superstition and into the Light. Or we do if we want a Tarot reading to be seen as a respectable holistic alternative to life coaching or any of the many healing modalities and counselling techniques out there. This inevitably leads us to the next big fear topic: THE BAD CARDS… go on, rattle them off for...Read More »
