About Raven

Welcome to Angelorum! I am Raven (I used to go by the name Lisa–You can read about my name change HERE), and I am so happy to have you here. Angelorum is Latin and means ‘of the Angels.’ This blog is my sacred haven where I explore the realms of the occult, mysticism, and spirituality.

My interest in the mysterious side of life was sparked by my grandmother, a natural-born seer and medium of Saami ancestry. She shared stories of encountering fairies and sensing the presence of spirits. Sometimes, she would put the kettle on because she knew with her spidey senses that we would have visitors and sure enough, a few minutes later there would be a knock on the door.

Me, age 16, in Ottervattnet, Västerbotten, Sweden.

Otherworldly things have always had a strong pull on me thanks to experiences like the OBE recounted in this post. Thus it was natural for me to start reading about metaphysical and occult topics from a very early age. I picked up my first book on Numerology, for instance, at the age of 10.

My first Tarot reading

One pivotal moment occurred when I was 15. Doing my first-ever tarot reading for a friend, I uncovered a dark secret of abuse she had suffered. This revelation empowered her to seek help and put an end to her suffering. It was a profound experience that solidified my connection to the metaphysical world.

The next year, my journey led me to the United States, where I spent a year on a high-school exchange program. During this time, I embraced Christianity and joined an Evangelical Baptist church. However, their insistence that everyone who didn’t believe exactly as they did would face eternity in hell soon caused a growing cognitive dissonance within me. Additionally, a traditional Christian framework failed to accommodate my mystical experiences.

Moving to the UK

13 years after my return to Sweden, I ended up moving to the United Kingdom. By then I had left the church but not realised I was still suffering from Religious Trauma Syndrome (RTS). I finally healed completely from RTS in the spring/summer of 2023. Thankfully, it didn’t take long once I pinpointed the underlying issue. The modalities I used for self-healing were EFT, Reiki and working on a Tarot-based art therapy project, the Wyld Godde Tarot.

The Frideborg Tarot Deck

In 2015, I created The Frideborg Tarot. The deck creation process took my Tarot journey to the next level as I went deeper into Tarot symbolism than ever before. My Tarot deck has been featured in publications like Take a Break’s Fate & Fortune Magazine. Moreover, I had the honour of being a speaker at the UK Tarot Conference in 2016.

I remain committed to continuous learning, evolution, and delivering exceptional guidance and support to all who seek my services.

The Spiral Pathway

My work with the Tarot is constantly evolving. In some ways, I have come full circle to where I was when I did my first reading. I look at the cards and say what I see, trusting that it is by Divine appointment. And I fully embrace my calling as a Seer and an Oracle.
