FROM THE ETHERS
I love my guides. In the middle of the morning, I was awakened, so I set my alarm for 8 a.m., and then realized I hadn’t written my blog – make that 6:30 a.m., as if I was going to fall back to sleep. LOL
My brain raced with ideas. Finally, I calmed myself and asked my guides to assist. They are always there. All we have to do is ask – remember that.
In Cassadaga Spiritualist Camp when potential clients call from the sign in board at the Welcome Center, which is part of the Andrew Jackson Davis Educational Building, also housing the Bookstore, I ask if they have ever had a reading with a medium. I like people to know what they are getting into. Most times they have, but when they haven’t, I go into my spiel.
‘I connect with Spirit around you, give evidence of that Spirit and life guidance. I receive information through my gifts of clairvoyance. I see, feel, know and sometimes hear. I can also work psychically. If you’re looking to hear from one particular Spirit, I cannot guarantee it. It’s not how it works. It’s who’s around during the reading.’
The voice on the other end of the line asked, ‘Do you use tarot cards?’ I chuckled inside and replied, ‘No. We, the mediums in the Cassadadga Spiritualist Camp, do not use cards. We don’t need them. We are psychic mediums.’ He had to check with his friend to be sure he was calling the right person. They came down for readings.
As a psychic medium, Spirit works with every single thing that you have ever known your entire life. It is the psychic mediums responsibility to grow his or her vocabulary to assist in readings. So I dabbled in astrology and tarot cards. For a period time, I’d give myself readings with tarot cards, who else will? LOL I soon realized I was drawing the cards I wanted to see, so I gave it up.
Backstory: One year, in the month of October, I worked as a tarot card reader at Universal Studios. I was in a tight spot and needed the money. I did 5 minute readings for $25, and people paid it all day long. I made $8 for each reading. I noticed other tarot card readers would layout these elaborate spreads. I used three cards and connected with Spirit to give the reading. Sometimes, I would use one word meanings of the cards as a jump point.
I’m not saying that tarot card readers aren’t legitimate – some are, but most times cards are used to give the client something to look at. Since I know the general meaning of the cards, my Spirit guides will show me cards at times, especially when people are coming for entertainment, which is not why I honed my gifts.
The bottom line is potential clients will go to who they are supposed. I’m fine with that because I know, deep down in my heart, that Spirit will always take care of me. They will take care of you too if you ask, believe and allow!
Love my writing guides, who make this blog possible. Thank you Spirit!
Blessings of Peace and Love!
