Four Epic Dreams, Reiki 2, and I Want Cola.

It's 9 days in to my first Reiki Attunement. But, guess what? I can feel that all that crazy healing has absolutely BURNED through me. (Dear Goddess, that was a challenge.) A very very interesting challenge.

So, I think in a day or two, I'll be doing my second attunement. I'm excited and nervous, and although it is advised generally to wait before you do your second, (up to 3 months) It's just FEELING right.

I have met people who will do their 1 and 2 in ONE single weekend. How in the world do they cope???

I had FOUR epic dreams last night. All of them had to do with me being in some sort of school system, where I was a silent teacher - I was an elder in all of them, not formally a teacher, but all the kids came to me, appreciated me, and looked to me for guidance. All of them had me in a place where we, as a society, were 'stuck'... either we couldn't leave the cave, the hotel, or the school, for reasons that were for our own 'safety.' And in all of them, I was 'breaking the rules.' Teaching the children to think for themselves, or brainstorming problems in ways that went against the grain of the society, or figuring out ways to leave the places. Also, in all of them, there was a force that was trying to make me stay PUT. The energy of this force was attempting to scare me, but in each I would have none of it.

I'm glad I took the time to write all of them down. The first two I wrote around 5am?? Then slipped back to sleep, to have the other two. All four were completely different environments, but upon reading what I wrote, they all had these common elements.

Which to me, says it ALL.

ON another note, I haven't had a caffienated tea in days. I have had no coffee. (this was all part of the cleansing that was going on...) My beloved has cracked a cola beside me, and I WANT one. I haven't had cola in...AGES. I'm going to boil the kettle and sip an herbal tea... but I'm not sure that's going to squash this craving. (We don't even have any honey in the house to help me fix the peppermint or the Lucid Dreaming tea I love so much.)

Blessings!

Boxing Day 'Hello!'

A little update! Because I have the inclination ;)

Readings have been going very well since my first Reiki attunement. I'm pleased as punch about that! The blocked energy is taking it's time working itself through. That must be some kind of build up! I've done a few more for myself in the last week, am in almost constant contact with my new guide, and already have a few live sessions lined up (and a few long distance ones, too!)

Although I'm only just finishing my Level 1, I'm finding I already have the ability to do long distance healings / treatments. I really think that this is from YEARS of doing long distance readings - it feels like a natural extension. Also, though I've been going through my Level 1, from everything I've read, this week has FELT like the Level 2 transition. STRANGE. But, Awesome with a capital A.

I'm REALLY excited to have 2 weeks 'off' with the pixies (aside from the tarot readings I have booked, live and over email - this doesn't feel like work!) because this means I'll be able to do my Level 2 attunements and be able to focus on the after-work that comes with that attunement. Fantastic.

I'm really excited for the next few months! Winter is GOOD. I don't do any of the typical winter sports that you'd expect for a lady who lives in cottage country. All my winter sports involve books and brains. Haha! So, there'll be time to catch up on reading, time to keep up with my clients properly~ (November was ROUGH!) and time to just chill out and FEEL. Winter means my time is MINE again, to do with what my heart and spirit lead me to do!

Fantastic.

If you would like a Reiki healing, let me know! :) I'm on FIRE! (in a good way. hehe.)

Blessings,
Lori-Grace

Fusion Reiki Day 3.

It is Wednesday. It is the night we have Yule Log! (which means I have to go out and get a Yule Log, as well as bake cookies, and finish up the readings in my inbox. Which I really should be doing now instead of blogging...)

It's the 3rd full day of my Level One Reiki. I have been experiencing some VERY intense cleansings. As with just about everything I do, this is also a FAST and furious energy cleanse. And it's all been physical, so far. The tweaked shoulder has now become just a shadow of anything at all. My head feels clearer, no white spots today.

And last night my root chakra started to work out it's blockages. Physically uncomfortable, but all the while I was satisfied that all is working out just as it should - I can't even describe how light I've been feeling!

So, after doing a little research, It seems as if this first reiki healing decided it was first going to clear my heart chakra. Then it moved to my Third Eye chakra. And now it's boogied on down to my root chakra. In three days. FAST.

I'm guessing because I didn't specify I should need this to be slow and steady and gentle, is why it's burning through me so fast. However, a 'fast and furious burn' is the way I work best, I think. (something has happened in the last little while, and my Aries has nearly completely taken over, where my Taurus used to be. Could that be part of it?)

I've also, in this same time period, tapped into a very strong Mastermind source (ULC) and a brighter, shinier, GLOWING ME is emerging. It's pretty fantastic.

However, I hear that the dishwasher has stopped,and now I must go bake cookies.

Blessings!

What is Reiki?

by Rev. Jason Storm

Reprinted with Permission.

What is Reiki?

Reiki is a modern version of an ancient healing art that utilizes the intrinsic ability of one to heal him/herself by activating it with the energy of the Universe. The energy that comes from the source of all consciousness, The Creator, "God", or whatever for you might identify with it. During a Reiki treatment energy is passed from the Practitioner or Master to the person (or animal, or plant, etc.) that wishes to be healed. The energy does not come from the practitioner as the healer is only a vessel for the transfer of energy. A Reiki practitioner has had a special attunement or series of attunements that open his/her energetic system to receive and transmit the flow of energy. The Reiki Master has achieved the highest level of potential openness that a person can receive on the physical plane. A master is also given the ability to pass attunements to others and thereby becomes a vessel for the Divine consciousness at work in our Universe.

Reiki is not and cannot be harmful, it is the substance of life. The healee must have the intent to be healed for the energy to be transmitted. It doesn't matter whether or not they believe that subtle energy such as Reiki exists, they simply must want to be healed. No matter what the dis-ease is, Reiki will bring healing (but it should be noted that the healing may or may not be in the form expected or desired -- Reiki does the work, not our desire.)

When a practitioner accesses Reiki energy is drawn through the crown chakra at the top of the head, flows down to the heart chakra, then out through the hands. As the energy flows into the practitioners body it quickly fills him/her with energy as a kind of battery to buffer the flow into the recipients body and any excess is grounded out through the root chakra at the base of the spine. For some people the direct flow of energy from the universe may be a little much for them to handle all at once. The Reiki practitioner has been opened gradually so that their energy body can safely accept, maintain, and transmit the energy where it is needed. So whenever energy is given, the practitioner is also healed.

In Reiki there are three attunements, one for each level of healing. First Degree Reiki opens and clears the physical body to the Reiki circuit. The crown, third-eye, heart, and palm chakras are opened and the spinal vessel is cleared to allow a consistent, constant flow of energy to be initiated and maintained. There is commonly a period of clearing or cleansing in which the physical body begins to release the toxins built up within, and this is quite normal, it happens to us all. Some of the physical manifestations of this clearing can include diarrhea, runny nose, sweating, increased urination, nervousness, loss of apetite, and mild mood swings. The symptoms are only temporary and will pass within a couple of weeks.

Second Degree Reiki is a deepening and squaring of the energy of the First Degree, and three special symbols are tuaght to amplify and more specifically direct the flow and type of energy transmitted. At this level, distance healing and healing of situations is taught and mastered. There is also a clearing period at this level, but this deals with emotional/mental toxins. Many people report finding themselves re-addressing old unresolved issues, some find their belief structure being refined and in some cases even redeveloped. Again, this is temporary and will pass within two-three weeks.

The Master Level of Reiki involves one or two attunements and intensive training. The energy level is again doubled and squared, all of the chakras are aligned, and the Master symbol is transmitted to the new Master. How to give an attunement at all three levels is taught and must be mastered, the structure of energy, the energetic body, the aura, and the levels of being are taught and must be mastered. The clearing at this level is frequently fully experienced during the attunement itself. Many students report out of body experiences, visions, flashes of memory from previous incarnations, premonitions, prohpecy, etc, the experience is almost always mystical and ecstatic. Tears are very common.

...And Another Thing...

This Reiki is turbo boosting me into ... I dunno where!

This morning my tweaked back was nearly better. Then, something new. The "white spots."
Let me explain.
It's been some time, but I occasionally get "white spots" in my vision. It's similar to when you look into a light bulb, and then see the light in your eye wherever you look. Except when I get them, I'm half blinded, and they just 'come'.
Now, I had a strange little spell back at the beginning of March this year. To cut the description short, it had symptoms of stroke, bells palsey, seizure, and migraine. All at once, without being any one thing. After the checking the things they COULD TEST FOR, they came to the conclusion that maybe I'm having migraines. (I lost ability to make the right words, among all the other symptoms.) Oh, and when I get thse migraines, they aren't the kind that there's any headache associated with it, so I don't even know when they are coming on. It's the white spots and the inability to coherently form WORDS.

So, this morning, when the white spot was in my vision, I had to just stay calm. Knowing that, this is the Reiki attunement, making all the emotional stuff come out. So, again, WHAT is this? What does it represent? I breathed, let my sweetheart know what was going on (do NOT be alarmed, but this is happening right now...) and then calmly carried on through my morning.

All was well until about an hour ago at the studio, when my pupils decided they were dialating, and the world went foggy. The last time this happened without warning, was the day they dug up the ossuary, and I got a big energy buzz. Now, again, to clarify, THIS thing happens when I'm doing a psychic reading; dialated pupils, general foggy vision (because I'm seeing into somewhere else and I'm not focused 'here'.) and a certain feeling takes over my body that I can't put words to right now. A slight numbness is the closest I can do right now.

So, when this happened today, I stood up and said "I'm listening." and again remained calm. Although I was conscious of where my phone was, just incase, and glad the walls are so thin between my studio and the offices.

The feeling passed, but the voices are LOUD today. Not abrasive, just very clear. Very adamant. I was very clearly told it was time to leave the studio, then they didn't want me to walk a certain way home... really asking for a lot of trust.

As I write this, the B38 'spot' is 97% better. This makes me happy. I wonder what exactly that is that I'm clearing up, back there. The vision/possible migraine thing is making me quiet and contemplative.

Ok, I feel like I just had to document this, as a part of this cleansing journey. I really am onto something completely new with the opening of the ministering of healing ability.

I want to write more, but I must collect pixies from school.

Blessings!

Lori-Grace

Reiki cleans house.

What's coming out...

It's funny to have such an enormous feeling of being in the right place at the right time, and that everything is just as it should be... and to have this sudden back pain.

Yes, I'm positive it's related to the Reiki. That's what it's supposed to do, after all, rebalance the energy and blockages. (Reiki or healing touch itself doesn't cause the pain.)

My first attunement was Saturday evening. The next, Sunday morn. This morning (Monday) out of nowhere, my right shoulder blade suddenly felt as if I had pulled it. I wasn't doing ANYTHING when this came on. I'm having a difficult time moving my neck, I can feel the pressure of it in the right side of my tongue and jaw, down to my ring finger on the right hand, and in the right side of my lungs.

So, what does this MEAN? I"m working on my pressure points but am trying to figure out what it is that this means. So I can work on clearing the problem. The point of pain is in the acupressure position of B38, on the right. And the internets aren't telling me what that could represent emotionally, physically, mentally.

But it wants out, what ever it is. So I must breathe.

Healing Minister, Reiki Level 1

In the last 24 hours, I've completed Reiki Level 1, and have become and ordained Healing Minister.

I'm filled with abundance, and have spiritually and physically celebrated these things! (There were no chocolate almonds in the house, so I had to settle for chocolate covered raisins.)

I feel like I've been waiting for any stuck, stagnant or weak energies to start to clear... which usually means being physically uncomfortable in order to let them pass. My nose was a little runny, but since around 11am has been completely cleared. I'm not noticing anything else unusual. I feel calm, yet energized. I feel focused, positive, joyous, and ready for the magic.

Plus, today, I was given a most eye opening vision, which gave me unlimited hope for the future I'm creating. (We Are Creators!)

I've also picked up a brand new spirit guide with these first few attunements. He came quite suddenly, all smiles and positivity. He's BIG, larger than life, happy, and so so so full of energy. He helped me do a reading this afternoon (which had honestly taken me over 3 weeks? to sit down to.) and It came out fast and furious, with the help of this new guide.

I feel absolutely full of love.

So, becoming an Ordained Healing Minister is part and parcel with the Reiki. The laying of hands is a spiritual practice, and becoming ordained lends Reiki a more serious authority. Being an Ordained Healing Minister keeps the Reiki/Healing Touch treatment as such - as opposed to being considered a medical treatment.

I am also available to do Pagan/Wiccan handfasting now! (although, not weddings - yet!) Isn't that exciting? Handfasting can be a yearly ritual to announce your intention of partnership, or a way to announce your engagement and intention to marry.


As well as Affirmations of Love ceremonies, And House Blessings.





Now, Universe, I am going to require a clean and comfortable reclining chair for the studio for Reiki Attunements.

Which will be offered on a free/donation basis, ofcourse! My Reiki Level 1 will take some time to complete, and I will want to do as many attunements as possible before moving on to Level 2.

Love Love Love!

I am thankful for this day and all it's abundance. I am thankful for all the joy this day has given me. I appreciate all of it.

Life is Good.

Love Has No Requirements. That's What Makes It Love


It will often circle back on me - the realization that I'm only here to love. That to love is the reason for my entire being. To have learned how to love, to have learned how to accept love, to recognize love in all it's TRUE expressions. To recognize what is NOT love, and what tries to masquerade as such.


And within the realization, I wonder, is it really so simple? THIS was what I am here to do, leaving all the rest as gravy? (mmm.Gravy.) To learn to honestly give love, to be love unrestrained and without boundaries, restrictions, guilt, or power trips?


And not only romantic love - but ALL the loves. The Forgiving Love, and the Parenting Love, and the Appreciative Love, and the Thankful Love, and the Soul Love, The Love that needs No Words. The Unconditional Love. Yes, that's the world I'm looking for. The Unconditional one.


When I get stressed, I fall back on it. The love inside me, that grows the more I share it.


This is surely a half-assed essay. I may or may not form this as a thought that can be articulated prettily. But it feels pretty nice.


And for some reason, was important to share. So, there.

Blessings!

This is Where I've Been At.

So, where has Lori-Grace been the last, oh, month???

A few places. All the places. Too many places?

My drama, or stress, or conflict... takes place in my head. I've come to a cross roads, and I've had to think my way through it. My energy has been focused on some personal growth and love and spiritual worship. It's also been focused on "this time of year."

Though we are pagan/wiccan, and for the 16+ years I've been a parent I've tried to carve a different path for us for this time of year, there is STILL this pressure to perform. We do less gift giving than the average family, and this year almost everything that my pixies are getting are hand made. The adults in the family have blessedly decided to forgo gift giving at all, and focus instead on the gifts of bounty and family.

I think my pressure comes from the money pressure. I've been very busy these past few months, and I think the coming quiet time has me a bit nervous. I've been struggling with maintaining a sense of calm and trust-in-the-universe over this. This is the path I've been set on, after all. I"ve manifested all the things we have wished to happen.

I want the rest of the way that we have to go to be joyful, exciting, something to look forward to. And generally I'm incredibly optimistic. The past 2 weeks or so have left me teetering-tightwire-tip toeing with my energy in regards to money. Gotta have it, at the same time, I have just GOT to live my life the way that feels right.

So, that's been my struggle. The universe has put me right where I'm supposed to be; Helping others and making the connections on a deep spiritual level with other souls with confidence and an open loving attitude. I'm not willing to hike what I ask for in return for a reading. How is it helpful if the prices leave it inaccessable?? Although I've been told I don't 'charge enough', I'm comfortable that what I ask for, for a reading, is completely reasonable.

And though I live an extremely frugal lifestyle, there's still bills to pay.

I"m not exactly sure I'm articulating what I'm feeling correctly here.

I have a very full, well rounded life. Life truly is good. I AM love, and I know that's my life-purpose. To just LOVE and be loving and giving. I feel like If I need to pursue the dollar, I'll have to give up my true path. Although I can feed my family happily through growing and bartering, the public utilities aren't so cool about receiving dolls and tarot certificates as payment.

HAHAHAHHA! (COULD you just see the lady's face at the counter - me showing up with a bill to pay, and a box full of art? This really tickles me for some reason.)

Anyway. I'm finding my sense of calm and focus again. A little full moon worship I think has fixed me. I know the answer is to cleave closer to all of you, and the voices in my head, not to pull away and chew nails. ;)

With Much Love,
That's where I've been at!

Pondering Gossip.

I'm not sure where to start with this. Because it's something that I've been chewing on for the last few hours, trying to process.

How do I type what I want to type, and still be 'gentle?' Hmmm....

What it comes down to is someone was gossipping about me, and it got back to me. Without really knowing anything about me, apparently. I don't run around town spouting "I'M PSYCHIC!" Because quite frankly, it's a small town. I participate in many different 'communities' in town; Business circles, Artist Circles, Mom's Circles, etc. And ofcourse, moving here from the city when I was 11, I learned very quickly just how small towns work.

So, those who are open to knowing about the whole "Psychic Lori-Grace" thing, are in the know. Those who aren't aware, are usually that way for a reason... I digress...

So, when I heared about this little bit of biting gossip (to the tune of "She has no abilities") I laughed like a maniac at first. Because the voices in my head laughed pretty hard, which made it funnier. This person just has no idea, chirped my guides. I also thought it funny to hear, because I've been so super busy lately with requests.

Sigh. Then I felt bad for laughing. It felt "not nice" to laugh AT the person.

THEN, later, I felt kind of... huffy. That's really the best word I can use to describe. How uncool is it for anyone to be gossiping negatively about me? (Gossip postively all you want. ) Is this a learning experience for me to rise above? For me to maybe just process?

This sort of thing hasn't happened in a LONG time. I wonder if it's come at me now, because I feel so strong and capable? I dunno.

Wanted to share, to vent, to try and work it out in writing.

but, now I have to get pixies ready for school, and get my jammied butt dressed to start my own day, too!

Have a lovely day!

MDWBA Dinner

I am JUST home from a dinner I went to with my good friend Rebecca Searles (from Carlson Wagonlit Travel in Midland) It was for the MDWBA (Midland & District Women's Business Association.) I've been wanting to get involved with the MDWBA for ages, but have felt hesitant and shy. (yes. Me. I'm shy sometimes.)

Rebecca is a member and invited me to come to the dinner as her guest. She suggested I bring some business info to hand out to the ladies tables, and also mentioned that there was an auction table that I could donate something to. She was bringing some of her travel specials offered by Carlson Wagonlit Travel Midland.

I wanted to bring a gift certificate, and wanted it to be something that would bring ladies into my art studio. (I'm sure I've mentioned it before, but I have a cozy studio space downtown that I create my art in and invite clients to for readings.) I had considered bringing a sock monkey or dolls, but I ended up making a gift certificate - in much the same manner as I've made scrap book type greeting cards. Glitter pens, fancy papers, a ribbon, some star stickers, and a business card attached. I should have taken a pic of it, but I'll do that when it comes back in.

When Rebecca and I arrived at the MDWBA dinner, with trepidation did I hand over the One Tarot Reading Certificate. I half expected I'd be taking it home with me. This was a room full of business women after all! Bankers and business owners and lawyers and number counters!

It was nice to see some familiar faces that I felt comfortable talking to, and Rebecca did a wonderful job of introducing me around before the dinner started.

Then, it happened. We sat at the second table, and they passed around a Mic for everyone to introduce themselves. I figured being a guest, that I was getting out of this one.

Nope.

so, with echo-ey mic in hand, I intro myself as a lady who make dolls. Heirloom, playable and displayable. Then I made a joke that I had better just say it, because I brought a gift certificate for it, and that I'm a psychic tarot reader.

That's when things got interesting! Suddenly, I felt like the Belle of the Ball. I have a hard time approaching people "cold"... but after I let the cat out of the bag (not being sure how it would be taken) I had lots of ladies come up to me to meet me - which made it WAY easier to make connections at the MDWBA ladies!

I was so pleasantly surprized. This town is a small one, and I figured that If I had a cold reception after letting people know what I do when I'm NOT making dolls, then I just wouldn't be a part of their group. But, Rebecca and I ended up closing the place down!

I made connections with people who were INTERESTED in connecting with me and my skill. And because I was so busy talking with ladies who were interested in talking to me, I missed the opportunity to approach some business ladies that I was hoping to introduce myself to. (some ladies in the community who are artists, etc.)

And, I think my hand crafted gift certificate went for face value in the auction.

Validation. On so many levels.

Thanks MDWBA. You've just gained a new member.

On The Radio!

The "Spirit Guides and Chocolate Almonds" show has been FUN so far! I take questions by email for the most part for the next week, and send out a follow up reminder before the show.

This is definately something that I could use a co-host for, though, or someone to mind the chat room. I take my glasses off when I'm reading, so it makes it a little difficult to follow along with what is happening in the chat room at the same time. I'll have to sit the 'notebook' a little closer to my face tomorrow.

During Tomorrows I want to talk about something REALLY interesting that happened this week! I hope you'll be there to cheer me on and listen in :)

Spirit Guides and Chocolate Almonds

And, as always, after the show I'll be doing calls through my phone system. You can get in line for your own private reading by clicking through the link and making an appointment for after 2:35pm, or just getting in the cue to speak with me.




I'm really looking forward to the show tomorrow, and connecting with you!

Blessings,

Spirit Guides and Chocolate Almonds

Spent some time messing around with the Blog Talk Radio. Oh la la. I'm excited about this thing. I don't have it set up to take live callers yet, and I don't run it with a co-host - It's all me! So, you'll all need a little patience while I iron out the kinks.

For the most part, I'm planning that each show will have a little time to chat, and a little time to do a few readings - what I'm aiming for is these readings will come in through email. And, bear in mind, that the show is only going to be about half an hour long at first - so I'm figuring I'll get at most 3 questions in.

I'm also wanting the querent of those questions to be on the chat at the time of the show - (there's an instant messaging type chat on the page when the show is live. So much fun!)

I'm going to be putting together a bit of music (local artists) to transition us in and out of segments (again, doing this on my own, with only my big brain and hopefully my Guides will rush in with important knowledge about this stuff!)

Once I get the platform down, I'll move into taking live callers, etc. My goal here is to really keep it as simple as possible, connect with those of you who are ready and willing, and have some fun!

Put it in your daybook: Sundays at 2pm: Spirit Guides and Chocolate Almonds . The shows do archive, and that archive will list on my Lori-Grace Reads Tarot blog.

Blessings!

Palm Reading


So often when people find out I'm a psychic reader, they immediately show me their palms, and ask me if I can read them. Palm reading is an intense and precise art!

I have books on palm reading, and I find it so intriguing. I've had a palm reading, some 10 years ago or so, and the reader relayed many things I already knew (and that she couldn't have known!) and so I was impressed. After my reading, she said it would be at least 5 years before she could do a palm reading again, as it would take at least that long for the lines to change. Otherwise, her palm reading would be the same!

Getting a palm reading is great to see long term where you're going, in a broad way. If you are looking for more precise 'now' information or guidance, I CAN help you with that! Using spirit guides, ancestor messages, and tarot cards I can get down to specifics in your life, and answer the questions you were hoping that a palm reading would do for you.

See the "Connect with Lori-Grace Directly" tab on the top of this blog!

Blessings to you!

Psychic Reader Party

There are two different ways I find that tarot parties go, as a Penetanguishene Psychic Reader

The first is where the party carries on in a separate room from the readings. This type of party is good for the individual querent if they don't really know some of the people attending. It allows them to be open and honest, and recieve the messages without hesitation or possible embarrasment. Because, as I've said before, I never know what is going to come out when I begin. If the questioner isn't comfortable with admitting things in a group of people, then they will deny messages that can come out of a personal nature. This makes it VERY hard for me to deliver the messages given.

The other sort of party I've done is where everyone in the room knows each other well. Secrets, history, all the good stuff! I love doing this sort of party, too. What happens, more often than not, is if the questioner is unsure of what I might be trying to relate, there's SURE to be someone else in the room who knows EXACTLY what I'm referring to.

Both types of parties have their benefits, but with both types I always come away feeling really pleased with having been invited (often again and again by the same groups, year after year.) and having delivered important messages at important times.

The differences have been on my mind this week, as I did a lovely party this past weekend.

Being invited to read for a party never feels like "work" to me. I'm always quite honoured to be invited to read at a Psychic Reader Party and connect with the group.

Psychic Tarot Readings in Penetanguishene Ontario

I'm very pleased to be able to offer live readings in Penetanguishene Ontario and area. In the 17 years I've professionally read cards in Penetanguishene, I've only had an office once.

So, now, to read new people individually, I have an office space near Penetanguishene in Midland. It's so nice, surrounded by art. It's a nice quiet building, and all of the readings I've done there so far have been clean and clear.

It's a very nice venue for me to meet new clients - as it's neutral ground for both of us. Sometimes I find it hard to read in my own home, as my home itself has a rather loud personality. And although I like going to other peoples homes to read, it's not practical when first meeting someone new.

Our area is a very pretty area, with so much else to do, too, when clients are coming in long distance for a reading (from Barrie Ontario, or Orillia Ontario, or any of the bit and little spots in between.)

On occasion I will travel for readings, but this mostly happens if I'm doing an event - setting up a booth or a tent at a market or fair.

To get a psychic tarot reading in Penetanguishene Ontario, you can email me to set up an individual appointment, or a tarot party for 3 or more people.

My in person readings are very reasonable, although you can get an email reading starting at $9, or a 15 minute phone reading for a total of $1.99 - same great psychic reading for less than half the price.

I look forward to reading for you! See my blog for a link to my Facebook Fan page.

Blessings!

Halloween Party Midland Ontario

Holy moly, it's October!

October is one of the months that I find it easiest to read. Maybe it's the end of the year wheel. Maybe it's because the 'veil is thin'. I get very good psychic messages during this month, and it's already been busy.

I don't however, at this time, have a Halloween party booked for the Midland Ontario area. This year Halloween falls on a Monday, which means there will probably be Halloween parties happening in Midland Ontario all weekend long.

I can do private readings one on one during the day, or tarot parties in the evening (start at 7pm.)
I'll be posting my availability for days and evenings from now until Halloween party season is upon us. Check the blog to book your live appointment. Email and phone readings also available.

Thank you for your patience with the new email and phone reading schedule.

Scheduling Email and Phone Readings.

I've been feeling a little 'off' the last little bit. It's weird. It's mostly in terms of my online 'life'. I've been spending SO much time in my studio, but I haven't got internet access down there. I've been sewing like MAD because Christmas shows are coming, and I want to be ready.

I've been doing live readings in the studio, and they are going well. I've been tardy with email readings, however. I'm not sure what that's all about. I've been taking an online University course, shutting down the garden, and spending time on my network marketing business. But all of that takes me away from my tarot skill. Which doesn't sit well with me. (All these things happen in the evening.)

Because I know that THIS is a MAJOR thing I'm supposed to be doing. So, I'm going to have to put myself on schedule, for email readings AND phone readings. The rest of the week just gets eaten up with all the other stuff I've got going on.

So, I'm going to suggest that Monday nights, Friday nights and Saturday nights are going to be my email and phone reading appointment nights. This will help me block the time and stay consistent. Over the summer it was easy to do readings as they came in.

And, this way, everyone knows when to expect their readings to be answered, too.

Lori.

Time Travelling.

Hey everyone!

Where do I start? I've been reading Book 2 of Conversations with God. The brain wants to explode. So, I've joyously realized that I am CLOSE! My creations manifest very quickly now (I find what I am looking for, or what I am waiting for so quickly. For example, finding the exact studio space I wanted.)

The next bit I've been reading is about how all time is happening at the same time. That you, at every moment, are living it all at once. So, time travel is possible. So, last night in my half sleep I looked my future self up. Am I always that energetic and loud? hhahaha. She just laughed, and gave me a tour of our house. That is what I'm looking for. Our house. Because we are ready for it.

I'm skipping 'market' this weekend - and reading cards in Little Scotia studio. So, if you are close to me (in Midland) email me TODAY to book your appointment. I've started booking appointments between 9am and 4:30pm (on the half hour or hour.) But as I've got a few bookings already, please email me.

If you were going to ask your future self anything, what would you say?

If you wanted to speak to your past self, what would you advise???

Tarot Certification? Bull!

There are so many readers out there of various skills, whether it be with tarot cards, pendulums, palm reading, etc, that are not helping as many people as they could with their skill, Because of one road block.

Somewhere along the line you picked up the notion that you needed someone else to validate you to prove you are a reader.

These councils will charge you a fee to "test" a skill you already know you have, and give you a printed paper certificate (one that you are probably going to print with your own ink on your own printer!).

Why should you have to prove to anyone, what you've already been doing? What your current clients already know you can do? Your skill comes from a higher source, and the work you've already put into it.

If you've already been doing readings, putting work into learning more, and continually learning, then you ARE a tarot reader. No one can tell you that you are reading cards or spreads wrong, and no one can know the secrets you know in your heart about your skill.

And, if you conduct yourself in a professional manner, you can consider yourself a professional.

The only difference between YOU and all of those famous readers out there, is thier ability to MARKET themselves.

If you are interested in learning how to market yourself as a professional tarot reader, please join this tarot marketing list:

Tomorrow! Tomorrow! I love ya! Tomorrow!

I've been working like MAD on my new tarot course. It involves SO much more in PRODUCTION than I thought it would, but I'm extremely pleased with the results I'm getting.

This course is directed towards people who are already reading tarot cards, and want to reach MORE people with their gifts, and for the readers to learn how to EARN with their skill, too.

A LOT of this course involves me recording myself talking - and it's hilarious to try to get a quiet moment with my kidlets blasting "Annie" or playing board games at my feet. (Not to mention the neighbours dog!) But, it's getting there, and will be ready for the September launch.

And it HAS TO BE READY for the September launch! Because in the second week of September I'm both starting my University Agriculture course (part time) AND getting the keys for my art studio!

It's made me feel neglectful of my current tarot clients though! My apologies everyone, for being 'absent' for a few days. Tomorrow morning I've earmarked some quiet time to catch up on readings that have been patiently waiting, and catch up with everyone on my Facebook page!

I'll be making some new videos for YOU too! Now that I'm getting good with the software (good lord, it's fun! Why did I wait so long to learn how to use this stuff???)

Thanks for hanging tight!

Blessings,

Reiki??



I've been thinking a lot about Reiki lately. And dreaming about it. It's been thumping at me
for a couple of weeks to pay attention.

There was only one book in our public library, and it was more a "Your questions answered about Reiki" rather than anything instructional. I wondered why that was. I learn best by reading, and I wanted something I could look at at my own pace, when I had time.

I stumbled onto a Great Deal that I wanted to share. If anyone else grabs it, we can study along together. So far, I'm very pleased with it. This is one of those things that TRULY anyone can do, with the right training.

Something about it resonated in me, and I felt it was the right time.

Blessings,
Lori-Grace

p.s. I'm pretty sure that anyone who's studied Reiki the traditional way is going to have something to say about this. I plan on getting live attunements to go along with this course!! But again, at my own pace, or doing them myself.

Secrets to Easy Connections with A Spirit Guide

We all have them. At the very least one, but often many. Some stay with you your entire life, some are only passing through to help you with certain aspects of your growth here on earth. But if they are always around you, how can you connect with them?

There are a few ways that I've connected and maintained connections with my own spirit guides. The more time I've put into it, the clearer they have become. They give me important messages to people who need guidance and answers. If you take the time, and follow these instructions, you can easily turn that "Little Voice" which is always a Spirit Guide, into something that speaks loud and clear for you.

The first thing I would suggest is a weeks worth of dream connections. Take a pen and paper to bed with you. Before you sleep, you can write out that you desire and are open to connecting with a spirit guide that is working with you. Say a short and sweet "I look forward to connecting with a spirit guide this night, in my dream life, and remembering it in the morning."

No matter what you dream, or when you wake from the dream, take notes. Take notes on what you've dreamed, and who's been in it, and what messages they have. Within the week, if you've relaxed enough before bed, you will have made connection with a spirit guide, and may not even know it.

After that, see my blog for a guided meditation, that will take you right to a spirit guide of your own. (It is written out in the blog for you to record and re listen to, or there is a recording there you can listen to.)

You have to trust yourself, and be open to the connection. Feel it in your every cell, listen to any little voices during the day (you know, the ones' that say "Go into that shop!" or "choose this from the menu." It might seem trivial, but when you hear that little voice in your head, ask it "really?" and if your first feeling is "yes" then, you can take that as a word from a Spirit Guide.

These steps are fairly simple, but require your mind and heart to be open.

I have helped many people connect with their Spirit Guides, using my own guides - they give me descriptions and messages from your Spirit Guides, often times much easier than trying to listen for yourself. (It's amazing how I can hear my Guides loud and clear to help others, but often they leave me to my own devices and watch how I'll handle things before saying a word.)

Commit to trying these methods to connect with your Spirit Guides, and you'll be pleasantly surprised when they show up, loud and clear!

To connect with me on the phone, to help you contact your Spirit Guides, Use the 15 Minutes for $1.99 Secret - It's the BEST deal, a secret I stumbled on, and have been having a great time sharing with everyone :)

Blessings to you!

Lori-Grace

SECRET $1.99 offer

So, there's a "secret" way to get a $1.99, Fifteen minute reading with me!

There are a few steps to it, so you can follow along with this blog entry. I discovered it by accident.

This is only good for new users to the phone system I use. Ready??


  1. CLICK through this link to my phone system. It will open up to a page with a PILE of advisors.
  2. Scroll to the BOTTOM of that page, and click the TINY link that says SITE MAP.
  3. This will open up the site map - along the TOP of this page should be a green banner that has, among other things, says "My Account." Click the My Account Tab.
  4. Fill out the forms account info. At this point, it should ask you to add the $1.99.
  5. From there, you can now come back to this blogger blog, and click through my personal call button to connect with me. Book a phone appt.
  6. Now that you've booked an appt with me, I will show up in your 'favourite advisors.' when you go back to My Account.
  7. Click through to my profile, and along the left you'll see "Send Email."
  8. Send me an email saying "I came from Facebook" and I'll send you 5 MORE free minutes to chat with me.
I know there seems like a lot of steps, but it's really a very simple way to get FIFTEEN minutes with me for $1.99!!!

I know that I can't send free minutes from email to anyone outside of the US or Canada, BUT I think that the 10 minutes for $1.99 offer SHOULD work for International calls.

You CAN go ahead and choose any of the advisors on that first big list of advisors, but if you want to specifically connect with me, the above steps are the way to do it.

I don't show up on that page, because I don't charge huge amounts per minute, and I don't do lots and lots of calls per day. So, the above steps are a way to STILL get the secret deal, and connect with me!

This offer is also only available to new users of the phone system. (I've used the system for about 10 years now, and never had a problem with them having my info.)

Blessings!
This should be fun!

Life is Good.

Summer has been perfectly perfect. Just the right amount of sunny days, cool breezes, and fun. I'm dreaming SO much this summer, which is different from what I'm used to. I used to consider February the "dream time" month in my world. That's when everything stopped for a little while, and I had time to listen to my inner voice.

This spring and summer, though, have been such a blessing. I've not been SO physically tired that I fall down in bed exhausted, which has opened me up to remembering epic dreams.

A few nights ago, I dreamed that I had to leave the place I was at... I took 2 books with me, and a pair of shoes. While at the new place, across a great swaying rope and wood bridge that spanned a sea, a ghost took one of my shoes and one of the books - a reiki book - leaving me with only a book about herbal medicine. So much more happened in the dream, but that was the general, condensed message.

I mean, how cool is that??

Do you ever get loud and clear messages from your dreams??

Blessings!

Epic Dreams and Organic Beauty.

I've been having the most amazing dreams. Full stories, complete with plot line and characters, beginning and ends... I wake up and I'm a scribbling maniac. They all need polishing, and I need the time to sit and write. (This is a goal for fall! Even an hour in the evenings will help me get all these stories OUT!)

I cleaned my bedroom yesterday. Moved some things around. I think I need to figure out some Feng Shui for the room - because although everything seems to fit, it doesn't feel right! And I don't know what the answer is. But, the dust bunnies have all been swept, and that's a good thing!

Also, in moving things, I've realized I have a LOT of make up that is either OLD, or not natural, and that I'll never wear or use again. (oh, lotions and creams go in this category, too.) I had some cancer on my face, that I'm sure was due to using too many products with too many toxins (because of the location it was in.) and I have no idea why I had been hanging on to stuff I'll never use again.

I haven't makeup in ages, and I only use a day & night cream, and facewash that is 100% certified natural. I MISS make up sometimes! Just not the ITCH my skin gets when I wear it. So, I poked around this site and am trying a few things - they've got a money back guarantee if anything doesn't work for me. I'm excited to wear make up again!

So, if you're looking for some organic choices, check this page out:

Organic Beauty Now


And let me know what you think! I'm not sure if they ship overseas (from North America) but from what I saw, the prices are very reasonable.

Have a blessed day!

What a Wonderful Day!!!

Every Sunday, I set up a booth at our local Farmers and Artisans Market. I offer soft dolls, jewellery, bags, fun stuff! However, this Sunday was WET.

Well, it rained hard last night, and today when I woke, it was muggy, and threatened to rain more - so HUMID! Not good for a table full of soft dolls.

I lay in bed, quickly putting any negative thought or dissappointment aside. And then opened up to the answer. I knew I wanted to attend, but didn't want to bring my dolls..

The answer was quick. Bring my tarot cards and do some "quickie" readings. I had a moment where I thought "But, I've never done readings at market" and quickly replaced that thought with "I'll have some fun today!"

And looooong story short, it was a fantastic day! Between 9:30 and 1:45, I did Eleven readings. (It would have been twelve, but there's ALWAYS that ONE I just can't get a read on... and he arrived last... but had the BEST energy ever! )

My intentions were to do 10 minutes readings, but I read for each person for as long as it took - still, that was about 3 readings an hour (ish) and with only a few breaks - there was nearly always one (and sometimes 2) people waiting next in line.

It was a fantastic day. You know, I'm really thankful for the teachings of Abraham-Hicks. It's really made an incredible difference.

Just wanted to share my day with you today!!

My Angel Visit

The night the angels arrived, all was quiet. No whooshing of winds... it was actually eerily still. I stood on my front step for a few minutes longer, just to be sure everyone was all in.

The first full day, emotionally, I felt a little blue. In hindsight, I think I was upset that there WAS no whooshing of winds and singing voices... although good things kept happening all day. Things that could be overlooked, I suppose.

My step dad came over (dressed in a lime green T and shorts, and THAT made me smile.) I haven't seen him in months, and all my kids were home to see him too (he hasn't seen them for a year or so.)

The phone guy came to fix my phone - and it turned out to be a friend from highschool that I haven't actually spoken to in real life since... well, highschool.I didn't feel hyper or excited - everything was very mellow.

The girls and I ate icecream. I got to watch a chick flick. Little things.

The second full day, The day carried on. It was sunny. The girls and I went to the library (where it was air conditioned.) I set my chin up, and smiled, and figured if they were here, and I was supposed to know, they'd let me know. I continued to feel happy and thankful.

The third day was Saturday. This is when it happened.

I woke, and upon opening my goobey eyes, I saw something so cool.

The sun was shining through the window, though my lacy curtains. The little fan was on. On the wall, right in front of me on my side of the bed, was the very clear shape of a large hand. The thumb and all fingers were very clearly outlined, and the palm was very very bright. When the fan would rotate, it moved the curtains, and made the hand look like it was waving.

This made me smile. But then I had to run to the bathroom. I got the video camera, too.

I jumped back in bed, and tried to figure out the camera. (seriously, I'm painful with some technology.) I got the "still" cam to work,and took some shots. Then turned it off, and just lay there.

and very quickly, the sun hand CHANGED. the bright spot in the center changed into the perfect shape of a landing angel. What had been the fingers, changed into sun rays off of the angel. The wings were open, I could clearly see a head shape, curved waist, and the legs were in the shape of one outstretched and one bent, as if landing on one foot. I tried to get some pics again.

At this point, my beloved asked me what I was doing. So I told him.

Then the girls piled in. And asked me what I was doing. So I told them too.

The picture on the wall then quickly changed again - and my youngest said to me "It looks like a cross now." The bright spot had extended - head, wings and legs - to the shape of a cross.

Then my beloved said "girls, let's leave your mom alone to look at the wall." (which made me giggle.) and shortly after they left, the spot faded into nothing.




Sure, I could write it off as the sun, the curtains, the fan - all very touchable things. But for every morning I've ever woken, I've never seen that hand waving on my wall!

so the fourth day was a market day - and it was the best market day I've had all year. And then my mom-in-law fed me dinner. Awesome.

The fifth day all of us were home - a civic holiday in Canada. It was quiet and lovely, and I got lots of laundry done, and a few readings done, and it was just a really really nice day.


So, that was my angel visit.

And now I have a hand cramp.

I'll try to get the images off my camera... Even though when I looked at them, the bright light had washed all the details out, from what I could tell....

A Free Sample Reading, Please?

So, I wanted to address my thoughts on the "Can I have a Free reading?" or "A Free sample reading?" question that gets put to me.

Now, I have always had a free reading draw on the go for my Facebook followers. It really does make me happy to do a freebie here and there. And I figure the Universe will give it to who needs it most. So, if you think you need it most, get your name on that note.

When I get the request on a near daily basis, though, It makes me want to giggle and make jokes. There are a few ways I think of this.

*If a possible employer asked you to come in for a full day and not get paid, so he could "sample" your work - and you did, completing the job at hand, only then to find out they were never going to hire you and on that unpaid day you did the entire job they needed done for nothing, how would you feel? This is what it's like to complete a free question reading - I've done the job people normally hire for.

*You have a skill. It's something you are good at, something that you spend say, oh, 17 years perfecting and upgrading and working intensely on. Let's say it's plumbing. You know you're worth at least $60 to complete a job, but because you are trying to balance affordability with what your skill is worth, so that everyone can have running toilets, you charge half of that. Yet, people still call you up to ask you to come and fix their toilet for free. Just to see if you can do it. Never mind that you've given them a tonne of referrals and feedback from others with fixed toilets.

*I'm not entirely sure what a sample reading would entail... umm, the first 2 sentences of an entire email reading? A picture of the first 3 tarot cards in a 7 tarot spread? (which is what I use for each question.) I've always thought that leaving others' feedback on my website was equivalent to a "sample" - as best as one can sample something like this.

My full in person readings are $30 (as of this writing.) My one question email reading is $9.00 (and that's CANADIAN dollars, folks.) I think that $9.00 is a sample sized price - if you were buying a sample of shampoo, that full sized cost $7 or so, you'd probably still be paying $1.50 for the sample.)

I'm not ticked or angry about the requests for free readings - I DO wonder however, how come it happens so often in this industry. Everyone else gets paid to work, gets to pay their bills and feed their kids based on what they've earned with their skills and in their jobs.

This is my job. I've dedicated more time to it, in order to help more people, and reach a larger audience. I've got my prices low low low in order to be able to reach people who would like or who even need this guidance, without it being a big scary strain on their wallets. (Last time I checked, famous psychics were charging around $700 USD for phone readings - and you'd get put on a 6 month waiting list to connect.) I can do your reading just as well with my own skills as any of the high priced readers. Far faster. And WAY less expensively.

I make myself available everyday. (Except ofcourse Sunday.) I make connections, read from the heart, and have time to care about those I'm reading for. Send prayers out to them, and follow up, stay connected online.

So, if anyone is doubting, I have given an awful lot of my time, my self, my heart to being able to read, without pay. Spiritual work, reading, praying, sending love and healing, the free readings, and all the struggles to reach this point. If it were all about the money, I'd be charging FAR more.

I love what I do. I love that it's helpful and giving and kind. I love the sharing, and the teaching, and the lifting up of lives.

I also like to feed my kids, and occasionally have a meal myself.

If I didn't charge something for doing this, I'd have to be doing something else to feed us, which would eat up any energy and time I had for readings, and NO readings would happen, ever. That's just how it is.

I hope I haven't forgotten anything. I also hope I haven't offended anyone. In no way am I accusing or angry - just felt the need to voice why I don't do all my readings for free.

Blessings to you,
Lori-Grace

White Flowers in the kitchen




Tomorrow is my Angel Visit. I have my Flowers purchased, my wishes in an envelope with an apple on the top, and my list of names who want a visit after mine. I'll be burning tea lights that are white, instead of pillar candles (because between the cats and the kids, anything else won't do.)

I'm really excited about it! And, to share with you what sort of things happen :)

Get a FULL Live Phone Psychic Reading for $1.35

yup, that's not a mistake! One Dollar and Thirty Five Cents.

How does it work?

Click the phone icon on my blog, under my picture.

The secure system will ask you to fill out the registration forms. They want to make sure you are of age of majority.

From there, it will say that you're call is in the que, and what number "In line" you are. At this point, you will have recieved THREE free minutes from the system themselves. (They pay me for them, which is how I can do this for free to YOU!)

It will give you the option of going to "your account." Go there!

You will see a box that says "payment info." click "ADD TO MY ACCOUNT." It gives you some big number options, but all you need to add is $1.35 USD. That's IT.

Now, go back to your account. You'll see a little picture of me under your "favourite advisors." click on the highlighted listing, under my name.

This will bring you to my whole listing, where you can send me a message (the link says "send mail" along the left of the page.) that says "I'm from Facebook!" and that you've added the $1.35 to you account.

Once you do that, I'll send you five more FREE minutes. This will get you a total of 9 minutes with me, which is MORE than enough to go through one question (and possibly squeeze in more, if we can.)

THIS is an amazing bargain that I have just stumbled upon with the phone system I use! Generally, people are paying $12 to chat with me that long (either on the phone, or in person.) - but I wanted to share with everyone here, because having this page has been so much fun.

I`m available generally after 2pm for live phone readings, until 9pm EST. Although, if you don`t have availability because of work, let me know and we can arrange something.



Blessings! This will be fun!

Connecting with your Spirit Guide. A Guided Meditation.

This is a meditation I did years and years ago to help clarify and solidify my guide connection.

Before you get started, and in order for this to work, you MUST be in a quiet place with NO distractions. Turn off the cell phone, the email, etc. Be in a quiet, comfortable place. If you think you might need a blanket, get that before even beginning.

If you feel you might distract easily, I would also suggest a sleeping eye mask, or if you are lying down, even a very light blanket or towel to go over your eyes, to resist opening your eyes or fidgeting while going through the meditation.



If you are going to use the recorded guided meditation that I have, on the left side of my blog, It may also be helpful if you have speaker phone capabilities on your phone, or an earphone or ear bud for your phone, so you are hands-free.

If you follow the instructions, you will be able to call this meditation to mind quickly and easily, to use over again to connect with your Spirit Guide and get the guidance and advice you desire from your OWN source.

Many blessings to you. Now, Get comfortable, close your eyes, and follow me to meet your guide.

*******************

Meditation - you want to read this in a calm slow voice to yourself. I use a hypnotic tone in my recording to help you go deeper.


You are relaxed, in a quite place, with no distractions. Breathe Deeply, and close your eyes. The only thing you'll concentrate on is my voice. My voice in your ears and around your whole self. Breathe slowly.
Be aware of your toes and fingertips. Now, tense them up as hard as you can, continuing to breathe slowly as you tense the muscles. Keep the rest of your body relaxed. Tense up your fingers and toes. And, relax.. Now, your feet and legs, and hands and arms - be aware of them and now tense them. Feel your muscles tense. And then relax your muscles, and breathe.

Feel your feet and legs, Be aware of your hands and arms. Be aware of your hips and stomach. Tense your muscles all the way up. Feelt, legs, hips, stomach, tense them... and relax. Breathe. Feel the muscles relax, sink into your chair or bed.
Be aware of your entire body - tense your muscles - your toes, your knees, your legs, your hips and bottom - keep breathing - your stomach, your chest, your shoulders, muscles tightened, your fingers and arms, all tense and tight while you breathe - your neck and now your face - every muscle tense while you breathe - then RELAX.

Feel every muscle melt. Every muscle relax. Your face is is completely relaxed, and your body feels heavy, sinking into the furniture. You are feeling deep in yoru own skin and mind, and completely relaxed.



In your mind, see your bare feet. There they are, in the grass. See yourtoes, feel the soft green grass, pokey, between your toes. It's been cut recently, and you can smell the cut grass.
See your feet take 3 steps in the grass, until you come to a small concrete stepping stone. When you put your foot on it, the stone feels cool on your skin. Both of your feet fit ont he stepping stone. See the grass around the stepping stone. Smell the fresh, cool morning air.
A step away is another stone.You hop over to it. Feel your body, light and joyous, skipping to the next stone. And then to the next. Your arms help you keep balance. You look up from your feet, to see you are in a beautifully manicured garden.
There are colourful flowers in bloom. There are white flowers, big and poufy, and delicate pinks and reds. There are lilies of orange and purple.Smell them in the air.

You see a white wooden gazebo. It is shady inside and looks cool. You walk through the garden towards it. As you approach, you see a figure seated in the gazebo. They are in the shadow.
Walk towards the gazebo. You can feel in your heart that this figure is a trusted friend, who you've known for a long time. You feel quietly happy to see them. You arrive at the gazebo. Put your hand on the wood of the structure. Using your other hand, You wave to the figure on the seat. They wave back.
It is your spirit guide.

Your eyes adjust to the light inside. You can see the sahep of their face, and see them smile at you. There seems to be a glow that comes from them, when in the shaded gazebo. See their features become apparent. See the colour of your guide's eyes. - and now, they're hair. See how it is styled. You are happy to see the familiar face and will never forget this moment. You see your guides clothing. Each colour and fold in what they are wearing.

Step inside the Gazebo. Sit and face your guide. You have your hands on the seat and feet firmly on the ground.


You say to your guide "I'M SO GLAD TO SEE YOU."

"THANK YOU FOR MEETING ME TODAY."

Say to your guide: "I want to connect with you easily and as I need guidance."

Say to your guide: "My friend, what is your name?"


It is time for you to leave the garden. You can come back here any time you want to connect with your guide, in other places outside the garden, because your guide is always with you. In the beginning, the garden will be the easiest place to connect.

You wave goodbye to your guide, feeling the mutual joy you have both experienced in connecting.
Step down the stairs, over the grass. See your feet in the cut grass, walking through the garden, until you come to the concrete stepping stones. Put your feet on the first one, and feel yourself skip to one, and another, feel your arms swinging, your heart singing, skpip to the next, and the next...

Feel yourself breathing, in and out.

Feel your fingers, and wiggle your physical fingers. Feel your toes, and wiggle your physical toes.
Take a deep, depe breathe. You are relaxed, and feel joy. You remember every detail of your experience. feel happiness and satisfaction.

Today you will feel refreshed and blessed. Breathe deep. Now Open your eyes.

I have CHAT now for readings - Instant Messaging for the WIN!

It's a beta program with the company I generally use for taking tarot calls - an Instant Messaging chat for doing tarot readings. I was extra excited that there was nothing to download, too.

How it works:

There's a little call button on this page. Click it. It's most likely going to say "Arrange a Call" at this moment. (you know, until I get a new cordless home phone.) Follow the steps for the sign up of your account. Using this method keeps your credit card info secure and private. (I never ever see it, or your home number - I've been using this system for about 10 years now, and have never ever had a problem with them having my info.)

From there, you'll be able to go directly to my listings. If you click one, you'll see that there's an extra little button on it that says "available for chat." That means I'm currently sitting at the computer with my cards, ready to do a reading for you.

I can even send you free minutes for the chat, too, if you email me first.

I'm very excited about this thing! I DO love doing the email readings, but if you just can't wait, this is a great way for us to connect. And options are nice, too.

The same sort of things apply as with an email reading - word your question well, so I can focus in on your answer and my guides will be more clear.

Let's connect!

A Five Day Visit From Angels.

A FIVE DAY VISIT FROM ANGELS.


Lori-Grace, A Canadian psychic reader, wants to share the abundance, good will, and healing with anyone who is ready and open for an Angel visit.

It is the Angels desire to come down and for five consecutive days to stay and work with individuals and help them each to meet three personal wishes. then each individual sends the angels on to three new individuals. After five days the Angels continue to three new individuals, who have said YES to receiving them. The angels stay with each new person five days before moving on to new hosts. So anyone who receives the angels sends them on to three new hosts. The Angels will always arrive at the new location on a predetermined day at 10:"30 PM and leave five days later at exactly 10:30pm. Between each five-day visit, angels have a quiet travelling period of five days, when they are on their way to the three new addresses. these pauses have a considerable positive impact on the world.


Your Angel visit, sent from Lori-Grace, if you say YES, will begin on August 6th and you say goodbye and thank them on August 10th at 10:30pm.


Before they arrive, you will need to choose three beloved friends or family to host them next, as having the names of the next places to bless is an important part of the preparations for the Angels arrival. You connect with the three new hosts, adjust this letter with newly calculated dates (Your last day of the five-day visit, and their five days on the road to the next homes.) and write your name instead of mine in the greeting for the Angels.


PREPARATIONS:

Before the arrival of angels to your home, you will choose a suitable place and prepare like this:


1-You bless a white candle and put it in a candlestick.


2- Next to the light you place a white flower in a bowl or vase or a potted plant having white flowers.


3-Beside the white light and the white flower, add an envelope containing a piece of paper with names and addresses of each of the three hosts that said YES to receive the Angels after you.


4-In another envelope put a piece of paper where you wrote your three wishes.


5- On top of the envelope with your wishes, you put an apple.



WELCOMING CEREMONY.


On the agreed date, you find yourself at home at 10:30pm ready to receive your guests. Before then, you light the white light and at 10:30pm, open your front door (physically, not just symbolically.) and invite the angels with such WELCOME the following words: "Come in and welcome, loving Angels sent to me from Lori-Grace. Thank you for your presence here. I ask that you envelop both this site and all the people who will pass by or are staying here with purity and peace. Thank you for choosing to come and bless me and my fellow human beings in harmony with life, joy, love, wisdom and power. Thanks also to you for helping me to fulfill the three wishes which are very important to me."



During the five days the Angels reside with you, let the white candle burn down completely. If it has burned up before the five days have passed, you can of course light a new white light if you want. If you tend to pray or meditate at certain times, it is nice to communicate with Angels during this time but there is no requirement to do something special, apart from the two times, at 10:30Pm on the first and last evenings.



LEAVING CEREMONY:

At 10:30 PM - when five days are passed, re-open your front door and bid farewell, thank the Angels, and send them on to loving the three who have said YES to receive the angels by reading them their names (and addresses if you have them.) for completion with yourself and your angel altar, consider sharing your blessed apple with loved ones, or eating it mindfully to help you embody your wishes.


If you would like to participate in this with me, please leave a comment on this blog, and copy and paste the letter to send to your friends who want to participate.


Blessings,

Lori-Grace

Advice for a Beginner Tarot Reader

I've never been certified - but my feedback speaks for me. I have 17 years of experience as well, but even if you are just starting, if you keep at it you'll get there!

I created a Facebook page, as well as a webpage, and a blog to showcase myself. On my webpage, there is feedback I've recieved.

On my Facebook page, there's also a lot of feedback. The word of mouth advertising is better than any paid for certification. (Because really, why give a piece of paper the power to tell you you are good at something like this???)

To gain experience, you just have to KEEP READING! Keep studying!!! I've been a professional reader for 17 years, and I STILL spend time studying and meditation on my cards. (I wrote a blog about how to study, too, for beginners.)

To be respected: Be respectful! Your reputation isn't something you can buy, or something you get from looking a certain way, or from hanging a certificate on your wall. It's in behaving like a professional!

What deck is best?? What ever one you LOVE and speaks to you. For years I used the Rider Waite, but for the last 2 years I've been using the DruidCraft Tarot - It really speaks to me!

How to advertise in a small community? I'm with you on this one!!! I live in a very small community. I do NOT spend money advertising. I have created my facebook fan page:

https://www.facebook.com/pages/Lori-Grace-Reads-Tarot/165303626862384

and invited all my friends to it. Then, encouraged them to share it. Also, I got FREE business cards printed up at Vista Print. That is the ONLY advertising I do. When ever I do a live reading, I simply say to my client when we are done :

"My business relies on referrals. If you know anyone who might also enjoy meeting with me, please share my card!" and I give them 3 or so business cards.

I do NOT charge an arm and leg for readings.
$30 for live readings (and I put my phone alarm on a half hour timer .)
$9 for email readings (because I can do them at my leisure.)
$4 to start for phone readings (the phone company gives me bonuses, so the client doesn't have to pay so much.)

I am a very serious reader, (I am clairvoyant as well) but also keep in mind that for your clients this is also for fun as well as a serious chance to get some guidance.

I really REALLY hope this helps - I just loved the way your question was written, and really wanted to be helpful to you!

Many Blessings!!!

Lori-Grace.

Email Tarot Reading Truths

Have we talked about email readings yet??? Well, even if we have, I must have more to say :)

When I'm doing an email reading, I sit in front of the keyboard, my cards to my right. I read your question (or first question) and take a moment of silence to connect with my Guides and Source. I have 3 guides that are predominant with me. (Although there is one new one that has been showing up lately, she's not usually one to come with me for readings. She just shows up in my dreams and meditations for myself!)

There is a physical sensation that comes over me when I've made clear contact. The best way to describe it ... it's like I go a little deeper in myself, but feel a little lighter at the same time. And I SEE the Guide who is with me. I ask him/her to help me connect with you, and help me express the messages that are most important for you to know.

I'll shuffle the cards, and lay them in front of the keyboard - however, occasionally during the shuffling, my Guide will start to give me messages before I get one card down on the table. At this point, I'll put down the cards to type the message, and then take up the shuffle again.

When ever the words come directly from my guide, they will be in "parenthesis" - typed just how I hear them. Although it makes the email messages look a little strange, I type your email reading just how I hear it.

An email reading takes me about half an hour total to finish - with shuffling, questioning, listening, and typing. I never realized before that it took me so long! It never FEELS like half an hour, but I guess with having to translate and type it all out takes longer than over the phone or in person!!!

Again, email readings are great because you can hang onto it to refer to in the future. Plus, I can do an email reading for anyone, anywhere!

Blessings,

Lori-Grace

Midland, Ontario

I'm very pleased to be able to offer live readings in Midland Ontario and area. In the 17 years I've professionally read cards in Midland, I've only had an office once.

So, now, to read new people individually, I use the Midland Public Library. It's so nice, with all the renovations done. It's a nice quiet building, and all of the readings I've done there so far have been clean and clear.

It's a very nice venue for me to meet new clients - as it's neutral ground for both of us. Sometimes I find it hard to read in my own home, as my home itself has a rather loud personality. And although I like going to other peoples homes to read, it's not practical when first meeting someone new.

Our area is a very pretty area, with so much else to do, too, when clients are coming in long distance for a reading (from Barrie, Ontario, or Orillia Ontario, or any of the bit and little spots in between.)

On occasion I will travel for readings, but this mostly happens if I'm doing an event - setting up a booth or a tent at a market or fair.

My in person readings are very reasonable, and not having to pay rent on a business commercial office brings my reading prices down by half - same great psychic reading for half the price.

The Secret

I've been a very busy lady! And for this, I am grateful. Having figured out how to help people in the way they are most comfortable (in person, over the phone, or through email.) I am able to reach out and help so many more people.

This is a good thing.

I've been consistently able to do many readings in a day, and I think I've somehow stumbled onto the "Secret" of staying fresh with it. I'm not sure if I can describe to you what it is exactly, or how it's working - because it seems to be a frame of mind.

Tapping into, or reconnecting with Source power (The Universe!) consciously each and every time I read, and then being very thankful everytime I'm finished seems to wrap things up nicely.

Also, focusing on what can be done - the positive things in a reading (after confirmations about circumstances which sometimes aren't so positive.) also makes a difference.

Into every reading, I'm open and let the messages come through me with love. That might sound a little squirrelly to some. Might make some uncomfortable. But, love in the bigger sense.. love in the BIGGEST sense!

In giving and giving, I'm recieving all the energy I need to carry on to the next reading. See, I thought this might be hard to explain. If it makes sense to you, I guess that means you're open or just plain ready to process the info.

I'm really happy that so many people are being helped!

Blessings,

Lori-Grace

Ground Control to Major Tom

So, I just got back from a live reading. One of the major differences is what a space cadet I am when finished with live readings. I can still feel my enlarged pupils letting too much light in...

Reading in person is a different kind of connection. I don't get any less messages when I'm doing a phone or email reading - but reading live is different. Maybe because I spend so much time outside my head looking with my actual eyes, as well as in my head listening for words. I really do feel like I'm two places at once.

Trippy.

(These are peculiar things to "say out loud" or "type out loud" I guess. Har har.)

When reading live, I can look around you and see words, phrases, scenes. If I'm reading you over the phone or email, I need to look inside for these things.

When I finish with live readings, I also have to "ground" myself with more weight, so to speak. Maybe because it's physically taking more out of me (with the looking and the hearing and my hands and arms flailing all over the place, not to mention all the ticks I get when reading...) that it takes more effort to ground after reading live than it does when I'm doing email. (Readings on the phone lie somewhere inbetween.)

I don't drive after doing a live reading. If I'm doing a party or reading out of the house, I have my beloved drive me to the destination. Ground Control!!!

Tonight after the reading, I got into the car, and even though he's used to all of this psychic business and none of it needs explaining ( his mom and I are much alike, so this is nothing new to him. Thanks M.I.L.!) he was tickled with my spacy-ness. He made me laugh with his impression of me. He opened his eyes up WIDE and put on a big silly ear-to-ear grin...

All I could think was "Good Lord, if I look that goofy, why didn't you take me straight home instead of out to the Wal-Mart?"

I'm thankful that he just totally gets, respects, and needs no explination about all my "spidey senses-psychic stuffs."

I DO need to remember to pack a muffin or something though, for future live readings!

Blessings,

Lori-Grace
