Are you an Empath?

Do you often feel deeply tuned in to the feelings of people around you? Do crowds make you uncomfortable? Would you (or the people closest to you) describe yourself as a sensitive person?

If so, you may be an empath.

Empaths are those who absorb the world’s joys and stresses like “emotional sponges", they are people who lack the filters most people use to protect themselves from excessive stimulation and can’t help but take in surrounding emotions and energies, whether they’re good, bad, or something in between.

The term empath comes from empathy, which is the ability to understand the experiences and feelings of others outside of your own perspective.

Say your friend just lost their dog of 15 years. Empathy is what allows you to understand the level of pain she’s going through, even if you’ve never lost a beloved pet.

But as an empath, you take things a step further. You actually sense and feel emotions as if they’re part of your own experience. In other words, someone else’s pain and happiness become your pain and happiness.

I will share my story with you in hopes that it will help.

I was going through a tumultuous time in my life. My fiance was drinking heavily, working 3rd shit made us feel distance, my boss was abusive, I was dealing with fear and grief I had not yet released and I was constantly on the go ALL THE TIME barely sleeping. My fiance's ex was angry with us and sent bad vibes our way and really bad things started happening in our home. I lost faith in myself and my abilities and wanted to give up on everything!

Then when I was at work the electric sliding doors would open and close by themselves... ALL NIGHT  LONG... I sought out someone to guide me and answer my questions that were similar to yours. I found guidance from many and this is what I was told.
  1. Journal to channel your energy... then burn it... everything you wrote and release your fears to whom ever you pray to... in your case God.
  2. If you believe in it you manifest it... both good AND BAD. I was fueling the bad juju sent my way by believing it existed instead of protecting myself and trusting I was safe.
  3. I am an energy container. I WAS CAUSING THE DOORS TO OPEN AND CLOSE MYSELF!!! I also caused my cell phone to act crazy, manifested energy beings in my home unintentionally when releasing my anger, and was attracting spirits to me because I wasn't allowing to let my energy flow and become balanced with it. It was insane to think I was that powerful, and still is at times, but multiple Shaman, psychics and empaths have told me the same thing.
  4. Not only was it my energy I couldn't control but it was also the energy of others I was absorbing that I couldn't control. Because I am empathic I was absorbing the negativity and energy of those around me and cramming it into an already bulging energy container that was causing myself to feel chaotic and making me feel like I needed to run away from everything... INCLUDING MYSELF and what made me me... ie. Tarot, reiki, meditation, intuition, etc.
Deep belly breathing, meditation, and diving deep into my shadow work is the only thing that has helped me. It had been 6 months and although I still make electronics and lights go crazy when I am angry I am able to recognize it and calm myself and control it. 

I hope this was helpful for you

Strange dream about the ex and what it means

THE DREAM
It is nearly 1am. The dream is with me. It was all new, everything I was seeing and experiencing, new people, new friends. I was with a man we were in a shed, I saw a sleeping man in a made up bed on a dirt floor. It was S. I moved away, I didnt want him to see me, I didn't want to see him. But he found me, he settled in next to me, he was curling up in an awkward spot by the fire next to me, he told me to sleep, his presence was so familiar, so loving, I was content.

Sometimes I am so lost.

Went back to bed and had part 2 of the same dream. He put his hand affectionally on my foot and I saw that the back of his hand was deeply lined, I looked closer and those lines turned into criss crossed deep cuts, his shoulders were criss crossed as well. Then the skin all seemed to shrink like criss crossed pork crackle and I woke up.

I don't think he is enjoying life anymore. I think his scars are running deep. I think he misses the familiarity of home. He's been gone seven years.

THE MEANING
At the moment he is looking in the distance,  he wants to move on. But he is in a fools land with his thinking,  he is not seeing clearly,  everything is an illusion. He is fighting little battles, he is struggling with those around him. There will be a sudden change, something will happen, there will be a new beginning. He will be moving to calmer shores,  away from his present environment. The death card tells us that the transformation is complete.

When the cards read in number sequence the meaning changes somewhat. He is in a fools land with his thinking, he wants a new beginning, he is battling with those around him, he moves to a calmer shore but something suddenly happens, a defining moment, but is met with an ending represented by death and he is looking afar to see what is out there.

Was my dream feeling for my new love real?

Seven Swords - The Past
Seven Swords says that there was sneaky business in the past.

Judgement -The Present
You are experiencing a spiritual awakening and realising that you are destined for so much more. Let go of your old self and step into this newest version of who you really are. The Judgement card often indicates that you need to make a life-changing decision.

Judgement pops up in a Tarot reading when you are close to reaching a significant stage in your journey. You have reviewed and evaluated your past experiences and have learned from them. All the pieces of the puzzle of your life are finally coming together to form one, unified picture of your life story. This integration has healed deep wounds, and you are now able to put the past behind you.

Ace Wands - The Future
The Ace of Swords indicates a new beginning. Additionally, the Ace of Swords means that everything is taking shape quickly.

Summary
Oh yes the feeling that stayed with you when you woke up is very real. This person is on his way.

Forecast Question

When someone's life is changing they generally ask about a forecast. I've done both a 12 month forecast and a 6 month forecast. The 12 month started in January but the 6 month is from now.

TWELVE MONTHS
You were already contemplating your life early in the year. You've had sleepless nights and withdrawn  into yourself. You've been really feeling down and out. But things are starting to come full circle. Follow the structured path and use your own power to create your future. Be wary of your apathy, lack of enthusiasm and not seeing the gifts surrounding you because there is sneaky and strategic  business happening around a lover at the end of the year followed by a new beginning.

SIX MONTHS
This is the time of reckoning  of dramatic new beginnings. You are moving toward a calmer shore. There will be some struggles on the way but you will be in charge of your life and you will be confident, courageous and determined. You  have it within you to make magic happen.  Things will move quickly at this time.

Inheritance Question

For a while now, over the years, different psychics have told me that I have an inheritance coming. It sounds like typical fake jargon but so many reputable psychics saying the same thing must mean something.

So I decided to ask the question where is the inheritance coming from?

Page Swords
This Page is the messenger of truth, fairness and justice. The timing is spring and represents a Gemini,  Libra or Aquarius person. It can also represent a younger person.

Four Pentacles
This four represents someone who is financially secure with solid foundations.

Six Pentacles
This six represents generosity of spirit and a financially secure person giving to others. Sixes represent family.

Summary
The inheritance is coming in the spring from a financially secure family member

Sending everyone an unemployed angel


Hello everyone and welcome. I hope you will enjoy it. During this time we are faced with such uncertainty, while being in this lockdown due to the corona virus. I’m asking the angels that are here in the office what would be best to write. From my little office window, which I have wide open allowing the fresh air in, I can hear the birds singing outside and the sun shining. The angels want me to help you to take a few moments for yourself, to let go of your worries for a few moments, put all them negative thoughts away and just allow your guardian angel to embrace you, and help you feel the love and comfort.

Angel Hosus is here with me and he is making me laugh because of what he has just said. Now, the room is packed with unemployed angels and angel Hosus, is telling me to open the window little bit more and send an unemployed angel to each and every one of you. I’m saying to Angel Hosus I don’t need to open the window more. That angels do not need doors. But I opened the window even wider. I have to smile because, as they left, I could hear, how would you say, the unemployed angels making a swirling noise buzzing like the wind. I want an unemployed angel to go to everyone who reads this newsletter and to their loved ones, friends, neighbours and even people they do not know. I had to smile, it looked funny watching the unemployed angels leaving in that way. Angel Hosus just smiled back at me.

Now all the unemployed angels have left it’s just Angel Hosus, myself and my guardian angel. I just want to remind you that your guardian angel is right there with you too. Ask your guardian angel, to help put happy thoughts into your mind. All of the wonderful memories, the good ones that you’ve had in the past and to see the lovely ones that you have even today.

I have had a few already today. One of them was talking to my daughter and my two grandchildren on Skype and seeing their smiley faces, another was making lunch and sitting out in the garden with my other daughter, watching two beautiful angels sitting on the garden wall. I didn’t tell my daughter that they were there. I don’t really do that, that much, but I had to smile when she passed a comment “Mum I think I saw something in the field maybe it was a cat?” I got up from the table and I walked over to the garden wall and looked over. I have to smile because the angel said it was just a little glimpse my daughter got of the foot of the other unemployed angel, even though angel’s feet do not touch the ground.

I know all of you must get glimpses of angels at times and even of your loved ones that have gone home to heaven, but sometimes we are very dismissive, and we think it is only our imagination. But many times, it is not. It is the angels trying to comfort you and helping you to feel happy and to smile.

I will probably tell my daughter tomorrow that she got a glimpse of one of the unemployed angels that were sitting on the wall. I know my daughter will give out to me and say, why didn’t you tell me, and I have to say to her the angels told me not to until tomorrow. Maybe in another newsletter, will share with you all what she said.

A couple of years ago I watched an older brother teaching his younger brother how to cycle his bicycle, the older boy was definitely listening to his guardian angel. I watched this guardian angel, prompting him many times to continue to encourage his little brother. I remember as I got closer, hearing the older boy saying to his little brother. You can do it. I won’t let you fall. Seeing the little boy’s guardian angel with its arms around him, I had to smile because there was an angel at the back of the bike, helping to steady it. Just think of all the wonderful things that the angels do to help us. Maybe the next time when you are watching someone doing something, remember there’s a guardian angel there with them, helping them and maybe there are other angels too.

Angel Hosus has just said to me that is enough for this newsletter. You need to get back outside into the sunshine and enjoy the lovely weather.

I think this is something we all need to do if the sun is shining where you are, enjoy it. Even if it is cold, smile. I just know that you are surrounded by angels because I have sent unemployed angels to you. I want you to feel good, not sad. I want you to hand all your worries and stress over to your guardian angel and I know your guardian angel will give them to God. Remember, you are loved and you are not alone. Your guardian angel loves you and I love you.

Blessings, Lorna

Is Tarot Evil?



There is a big misconception out there that Tarot is evil, the work of the Devil, Satan worshiping when we look at the cards, it makes bad things happen, brings evil spirits into play. Tarot is sinful. Tarot cards are associated with divination, Leviticus: “Do not practice divination or seek omens.”

Religion
In the Biblical sense divination means fortune telling and unlocking the secrets of the future by occult and supernatural means. Omens means an event regarded as either good or evil signifying the advent of change. This concept of predicting the future is sinful because what it’s doing is asserting a power that’s greater than God’s. On a spiritual level it means that you are ignoring the present, which is where you can make the biggest changes, and instead, you’re thinking more about the future, and you're living outside of yourself

Tarot an Occult Practice
If one were to examine the definitions of Occult and Psychic one would see that Tarot is not the same as Occult and is no more 'dangerous' than using any other 'normal' card. The Church simply wrapped up everything is one basket and denounced all as satanic practices.

OCCULT - mystical, supernatural, or magical powers, practices, or phenomena.

PSYCHIC - relating to or denoting faculties or phenomena that are apparently inexplicable by natural laws, especially involving telepathy or clairvoyance.

About the Cards
  • Tarot cards are made in a factory using coloured inks and glossy card. They come out of the factory, are put into boxes and then arrive with retailers who sell them to the public. At no stage do the cards pass through a process where people put curses on them or likewise bless them with love. Tarot cards themselves are a product, they are not “bad” in themselves. 
  • The Tarot is a book of wisdom where each individual Tarot card represents an energy or situation in life. A good deck has cards that readily bring to mind the energy or essence of that card in a way that we can quickly recognise. (I suppose it is possible for someone to paint a deck that is intensely dark and therefore brings to mind a negative way of thinking. Thankfully we live in a world where publishers like US Games and Lo Scarabeo have editors who will refuse anything too unsuitable from making it to the presses). 
  • Some will mention that there are “bad” cards in the Tarot like Death, The Tower and The Devil that can scare people. When doing a reading I will often explain that these cards are not to be taken literally or be seen as “bad” cards. For example leaving a job is like a death, but then alongside that getting a new job is like a birth. In that sense, death does not need to be unwelcome. Nor does it literally mean there will be a death.

Evolution of Tarot
Tarot has gone through many reinventions through time. The divination system has many origin myths, debated history, and speculation. What was once a card game slowly evolved into the most popular system of divination today.

As it passed through Antoine Court de Gebelin’s hands in the 1780’s it was given more occult influence and deeper symbolism. This repeated again as the system passed through the hands of Etteilla in the 1790’s, Levi in the 1850’s, Mathers in the 1880’s, Waite in the 1910’s, Case in the 1910’s, Hall in the 1920’s, and finally Crowley in the 1940’s.

Each occultist added new layers of meaning and imbued them with their vision of the Mysteries, making the system as rich in symbolism and associations as it is today. However, the earlier Christian spirituality of the Medieval Church is usually swept under the rug. It is fascinating to see just how much influence it had on our modern decks.

The Rider Waite Smith Deck
A. E. Waite, the creator of the world’s most influential Tarot deck, was a spiritual seeker and mystic who supported himself with freelance translation and writing. In 1889, under the pseudonym Grand Orient, he published A Handbook of Cartomancy, Fortune-Telling and Occult Divination, one of the first books in English on how to read tarot. His fascination with the occult scene drew him into membership in the Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawn, but his spirituality gradually evolved away from ceremonial magic and toward Christian mysticism. When the Golden Dawn splintered into factions, he created his own order, the Fellowship of the Rosy Cross. In 1909, he created the Rider Waite Tarot in collaboration with Pamela Colman Smith, and wrote the book The Pictorial Key to Tarot.

Trionfi 
The most verifiable history that we have is that the cards originated as the Italian card game called Trionfi, which is the origin of both the tarot and our modern playing cards. Trionfi means “Triumph” and eventually originated the word “Trump” in card games. The Trump cards were cards that ranked in power and a higher ranking card would “triumph” or “trump” cards that were lower than it. To understand the Trump cards and why certain symbols were used, we have to understand when they were created, or at least popularized, which was during the Medieval period of the 15th Century in Renaissance Italy.

The Major Arcana
The Tarot Trumps which evolved into what we call the Major Arcana, displayed spiritual messages pertaining to the power of God. The only card which didn’t follow the Trump rules was The Fool card, which was the origin of the Joker in the tarot. The Fool card allowed the player to break the rules and not follow suit, just as the court jester was allowed to break rules no one else was allowed to in the feudal system.

The Fool card allowed the player to break the rules and not follow suit, just as the court jester was allowed to break rules no one else was allowed to in the feudal system.

The Juggler (Trump 1) was more akin to a stage magician. Someone who would use slight-of-hand tricks to awe the average person but was a distraction from the spiritual principles of the Church.

The Popess (Trump 2) was based on Pope Joan, a legendary woman who tricked the Church into thinking she was male and rose to the papacy. She, unfortunately was killed horrendously when it was revealed she was a woman. So she had the trickery of the Juggler, but at least working within the realm of the Church’s teachings otherwise.

The Empress (Trump 3) was lower in power in Trumps because she was still female, but at least had “legitimate power” in the eyes of the people, but didn’t have as much power as The Emperor (Trump 4) who overpowered her. Both represented the power of law and land.

The Hierophant (Trump 5) was the male Pope. His divine power as a representative of Christ on Earth and of the Church gave him more power than the Empress and Emperor because heaven’s law was greater than the land’s law.

The Lovers (Trump 6) which represented Christ’s assertion that Love was the greatest law (1 Corinthians 13:13).

THE VIRTUES - The next set of cards are heavily influenced by the writings of Thomas Aquinas, who was deeply influenced by Plato. Though their ranks of power are interjected with the next series of cards, the virtues are indeed there. Anthony Louis writes in Tarot Beyond The Basics that
“Aquinas viewed Prudence as ‘the cause, measure, and form of all virtues … the auriga virtum or the charioteer of the virtues.'” 
The Chariot (Trump 7) the first virtue is Prudence, which opened the way for his other virtues, Justice (Trump 8), Fortitude as Strength (Trump 11), and Temperance (Trump 14). The Hermit (Trump 9) embodied the life of a monk following the virtues and living a life or prayer, introspection, and meditation.

The Wheel of Fortune (Trump 10) represented things that were beyond our power, things that were delegated to the power of the stars and to God.

The Hanged Man (Trump 12) represented the surrender to God as well as the sacrifice of Christ hanging upon the cross, who also surrendered to the will of God as a sacrifice.

Death (Trump 13) whom we must all surrender to, whether we are a Hermit, an Emperor, a Juggler, a Fool, or a Hierophant.

The Devil (Trump 15) is an obvious Christian symbol as well, representing the things that tempt us away from “salvation”. The Devil is beyond life and death in his power and is referred to as the “God of the world” in the Bible.

The Tower (Trump 16) is the Tower of Babel which God struck down, representing the Devil’s influence in making men think that they can reach God through their own arrogance.

The Star (Trump 17) is the Star of Bethlehem which heralds a sign of hope for the birth of Christ so that people can gain salvation.

The Moon (Trump 18) represents the Virgin Mary often represented with lunar imagery and she will give birth to The Sun (Trump 19) which represents the Christ Child, the light of the world.

Judgement (Trump 20) refers to the final Judgement after Armageddon, when Jesus comes back to judge the souls of the dead who have been “slumbering” in their graves.

The World (Trump 21) which represents the New Jerusalem that will be built afterward, the new Eden.

Being Psychic
Your first thoughts are the most psychic ones, before your rational mind interferes.
- Felicity Carter 2019
Any tool can be used for good or evil— it’s all up to the person using it. A hammer can be used to build a beautiful house, or to bludgeon someone to death. Tarot is just a tool, it’s up to you how to use it.
- Anon 2020 
Tarot was designed to tell a conventional Christian story using images from late Medieval popular culture. Associating tarot with Cabala, the grail legend, alchemy, or other divination systems is an artificial overlay. Tarot was not invented with any of these systems in mind, but these associations work well in the realm of the imagination and can add depth to one’s understanding of the cards.
-  Sherryl Smith 2011

MORE ABOUT EVIL TAROT
I was excited about my new tarot cards. I didn’t think much of it, and my inlaws began to message me saying how it’s evil and it’s not God it’s the Devil. I am spiritual, I do believe in God, I go to church. So they’re acting like I’m a witch from the Salem witch trials and they’re the prosecution!
My Mom isn't religious, but enough that my practicing tarot was a shocker and led to some talk about 'finding God' one day..
The Word is a Living Word because the meanings can shift depending on the day, message, and what is being sought e.g. comfort, advice, etc. She spends her mornings searching for passages that 'speak' to her. It's the same concept in tarot. I am using a living tool to help me find center, advice, comfort, ect. One's a card, one's a book. They are very much what you make of them.
Ignore them and be yourself. Lead by example. Keep growing, healing and doing good things for others. Allow them to see you shine, remain positive, kill them with kindness. Might take a long time but they will eventually see that there is nothing evil about you and find they may have come to the wrong conclusion about Tarot.
Steps to limit the chance of a bad reading
  • Say a prayer before you read or are read for and ask that all that comes from this reading will be for your greater good. Picture it going well.
  • If you get a bad feeling that you shouldn’t go ahead with a reading then don’t do it. You need to trust your instinct.
  • Try to get a recommendation from someone who has already seen that person. Then ask how did they present information and was there anything that worried the person about the reading.
  • Be careful what you ask for. Are you ready for all the possible answers to that question? What will you do with the answer?
I love the Tarot and have been studying and using it for more than twenty years and most Tarot readers will have only your best interest at heart and will hopefully weave a wonderful picture that is empowering.

Tarot readings can be really useful to help us see our lives more clearly and personally and I think it is really exciting.
