Lori's Dream Book - The Book Not Mad

It is nearly 9pm, and I am positively giddy. Why? I visited Mike at "The Book Not Mad" tonight, the most groovy book store on HWY 12. (If you're local, you'll know the place I'm talking about. Has a tin roof with big words written on it, just across from the Shrine.)

 We talked and talked, and although I thought I would go out and do double duty - finally see the place AND help him work, I did no work at all... And I think Mike packed a whole 30 books away while I was there. BUT, he pulled this gem out for me:

What is this tiny little book? (It looks bigger than it is in my hand. It's because I'm small...heh.) Check this out:

The Astrologer's Dream-Book, Fortune-Teller, and Oraculum. SAY WHAAA? OhMyGoddessI'mSoPleased.

So, I've only had a chance to skim over it a bit, but it is full of crazy dream interpretations, some other oracle stuff, witchy stuff, divination stuff. (If his lips are thin, if his eyes are blue, if his nose is long, this means....)

CA-RAY-ZEE. I want to take pictures of ALL the pages, but it is quite a thick little book! And I'm all hopped up on the adventure of it all. I freakin' LOVE books, and this is a HUGE building just FULL of them. I tried so hard to maintain eye contact while we spun yarns and laughed, but there was SO much to see! And, I wanted to TOUCH ALL THE THINGS.

The entire building had such an AMAZING vibe (bzzt bzzt.) Although some of that may have just been my big excitement for finally getting out there, and because AN OLD SCHOOL HOUSE FULL OF BOOKS, that's why!  I'm tickled, and so glad I went out.

This post has not been my most poetic, or articulate, or literally correct. But, WOOT!

I'm going to have to eat some bread to soak up some of this WOO HOO.

A day off??!!

The few days off I've had, I've been spending in the basement. Cleaning. Going through the random boxes of my studio packed in a hurry, and strange pockets of history. Today however, I've taken to catch up on the email readings I've had waiting in the inbox.

I'm all caught up! Fantastic.

I can't seem to concentrate on more than one thing at a time, in terms of all the different facets of my life. All the different things I do. I can think of ALL the psychic stuff at once. Or all the CRAFTY stuff at once. Or all the CLEANING stuff, or all the PARENTING stuff.. But don't ask me to mix any two or more of those things at once. I just can't do it.

So, Wednesday I carved out a bit more of the basement mess, and this allowed me to NOT think of basement today,and get to my readings.

I've been watching my datebook, and I have smaller increments of time available for doing live readings, and IM or phone readings. Again, this is because, if it's a work day or something is scheduled for that day, I just can't pick up my cards.

I've been reading SO much stuff lately. Getting little smidges of writing done. I feel like something must HAPPEN before I can do any more writing though. I still write in my journal almost every day, and good things free flow from that, to be included in my book. But to sit down and pointedly write for the psychic book... well, i'm on pause.

OOH, and guess who came through for me 2 nights ago?? My grandmother, on my Fathers side. This would probably be enough to either send my family up into an uproar, or...something. But, She was loud and clear, and that's the first time EVER she has. She attempted to bring my Brother... but he was reluctant. I took mad scribbly notes, but haven't looked at them since I scribbled them. She had messages just for me... but foremost wanted me to know that she is a-ok, and that she hadn't been present for most of the last years she was here anyway.

She kept referring to me as her 'namesake'... funny how much I relate to a woman I met once as a toddler and then again once as a 10 year old.

Anyway, I feel honoured that we've connected.

And, now I'm gonna get back to checking email and readings.

End of Saturday. Had a party in Penetanguishene.

I did a tarot party today. Four ladies. I left this morning feeling slightly unsure of what to expect. I had just TONS of spirits and voices coming through, willy nilly, all morning. But everyone all seemed to stay focused for the readings.

They were all good readings - fast and no moments of 'pain.' (you know, moments where I get absolutely nothing. It happens sometimes.) but, everyone was loud and clear, and I am thankful. I hope the ladies retain all the messages for them.

I feel like I've been having a real dilemma about how it is that I should carry forth with doing what it is that I'm supposed to be doing, and the reality of LIFE. I KNOW that it all seems to work out just as it should - but it's difficult to trust that when a body is stressed out.

And I have been. But it's coming around.

I've mostly felt very very unorganized. Days slip into WEEKS, because my body is so tired. I feel like all my time is spent SLEEPING, working, or attempting to write something meaningful.

My world keeps SHIFTING with such extreme since I had to face closing my studio. It's touching every facet of my life - all the OUT THERE stuff, all the very very private things, everything in between.

Today was good, though. The voices are STILL chatty chatty, and there's a pressure on my head that indicates I'm "On." or open to them. Something with my abilities are changing, too...

Anyway. I felt the need to babble.

I've put dinner on for the kids, and after that, I must get to the readings in my inbox.

I wonder if I'll have the energy left for doing calls later?? or chats?? We'll see.


Some things this morning.

Had SO many dreams, TOO many messages. Just needed a place to record them.

*Dreamed I heard my brothers song on the radio, sung by someone else. This REALLY upset me in the dream, and I couldn't find ANYONE with a phone so I could call him. I was away from home, and this radio station was local to the place I was at. We were doing some sort of war reinactment involving red coats. I tried to get into a costume that had a red coat and white pants attached, but it was ALSO a fat suit. Everyone was laughing at me, I was laughing too, but they wouldn't let me get into it. Anyway, then we were hiding for some reason, and this song came on, and I was WAILING my brothers name.

*This morning, I got VERY clearly "There will be a death right after the birth." But that's all they gave me. No specifics. Thanks, guys.

*This morning I was given instruction to NOT do the yoga, but instead pick up a book. I've been reading it for hours. It's mirrored so many things that have happened to me very recently. At one point I felt like "My book has already been written! What am I supposed to write if this book is already written??" The book is "Crossing Over" with John Edward.

*This morning they took me to two different places. One, a mosquito filled swamp, where I sat in a tent overlooking water at dusk. Then, There was a beach. At both places, they said I was unfocused. Although, at the swampy place, my guide did give me the business over squishing a mosquito he let in. "That was a soul!" he said. "A soul that was going to try to eat me!" I replied.

*They reminded me that I must not forget the special souls my daughters were, before they were here.

I have a tarot party to do in 45 minutes. I feel WAY to "open" to drive. This is going to be interesting.

Card of Yesterday?

I tried to pull a new card for today.
What I pulled out of the deck first was the 4 of wands again.

"Healing. Do it." said my guides.

And then I thought I'd draw another, and I got the Ace of Cups AGAIN.

"You'll feel better." they said.

So, I put my cards down.

Last night just before sleep someone decided that saying my name very loudly in my ear would be beneficial. The voice was DIFFERENT somehow, though. I'm not sure I can explain further than that. Very loud, very clear. So, then ofcourse I TRY to listen, and get nothing. My body was so exausted that I almost literally fell into sleep - BOOM.

I dreamed. But I don't remember anything - which is EXTREMELY rare.

Today is Friday the 13th. Adventures!!! I am eating oatmeal in preparation of needing more energy!

Have a blessed day!

A WHOLE reading today....

So, I was getting ready to pull my card-of-the-day, when I realized "I need an entire reading."

At this moment, a friend of mine (also a reader) offered to read my cards on facebook.

So, I started shuffling my own cards,
found a place on the table to spread them, when I realized there was NO space near the computer.
My guides then promptly said
"You haven't been listening anyway."
To which my response was:
"I am listening. I'll listen today carefully!"

Then, I had to pour some soup for my sick pixie.
Then, cleaned off a space on the table, and spread my cards out.
Then, went to my bag to get my camera out.
And an Easter Creme Egg I've been hiding.
And then I pull this:

The first thing that I saw was the "path, if you choose to follow it." Ace of Cups. So, to feel brand new, emotionally - to feel excited and PASSIONED about something leads to the 3 of wands... Things changing, walking on a new path, again, with FIRERY passion and planning.

I looked deeper at the cards - and some extremely personal things are there - I don't feel like I can share what I saw in the "past" and "present" cards... But the layout was important - the King of cups came out "above all" of the other cards... and the cock in the "present" card (which is difficulties that I need to face with creativity.) is hiding. It was at that point that I noted the dog hiding behind the Kings chair.

And my guides said loudly "Cock-and-Bull."

The nine of coins comes in the future. But how far into it??

Then, comes the card that I felt in my bones:

The four of wands: A healing is taking place right now. It's trying to burn through me.
(Before I drew cards, I had been looking through a booked called "Alternative Medicine" to find something for my daughter, who is home with a sore throat - and I got stuck on the Reiki page, that was surrounded by Theraputic Touch and Spiritual Healing, etc etc. And thought, I need to do some Reiki on my self, AFTER I do my daughter."

When I pulled out a little further, Between the card that is "My Environment right now" (4 of wands) and my final outcome card (3 of wands) lay the 6 of coins. Who for me is ALWAYS the Hermit, giving charity. This is a mixed up card for me.

Because I have mixed emotions about receiving monetary help - and we are getting a LOT of help right now... however, this card is also speaking to me about helping OTHERS and of my healing touch and prayer ability... When I look at the path from the 4 of wands, today it is the SAME path in the same place as the one in the 3 of wands. BUT the 3 of wands is yelling at me about being ALONE in nature with my thoughts. Something I haven't done in YEARS AND YEARS. Going out to sit alone, to just heal and think.

I'm TRYING to listen to my guides...

Now, my girlfriend has just sent me messages with her reading for me...

Long Island Medium

While doing a reading the other day for a client, they asked me "Have you seen Long Island Medium yet?" I don't have cable in my house, so I hadn't seen it, but she wasn't the first client to mention they thought there was a similarity. My client said that I reminded her of Theresa Caputo, the medium in the show.

Ofcourse, my curiosity was peaked, but I had to file it away. My week was filled with readings, classes, and ofcourse Easter Dinners with family. Today, I had a chance to look her up on the TLC website.

I just finished spending at least 2 hours going through the videos of Theresa, Long Island Medium show on the TLC website.

I need to share with you exactly what I found and feel about Theresa.

That woman has an incredible hold on her ability. And I think what I like MOST about her, is her positive outlook and message delivery. It's fast, open and honest, and she's accurate. I love that she makes no bones about her personality and I could feel just how comfortable she is, with exactly who she is.

I feel really good about being compared to her. My clients telling me I remind them of Theresa on the Long Island Medium show I feel is a pretty special thing! Although my personality is pretty different, It's nice to know that my clients feel I'm as upbeat, positive, and as fun and accurate as Theresa.

Easter Sunday - The Hermit (card of the day.)

So, as I sleepily shuffled today, my thoughts drifted to All The Things. The things that are bothering me, that I'd really like to address and solve. The things that are going on around me. I thought about how the next year looks completely foggy to me. I thought about how I'm happy to be planting seeds for the garden, but really wanted to be moved into a house of my own by fall... I thought about ALL THE THINGS.

And then drew the Hermit.

And the first words my guides said were "Keep your shit to yourself."

And I thought, "SERIOUSLY. THIS is how my guides talk to me. The language." ;)
And they replied "This is how you talk to yourself, so, SERIOUSLY."

So, I'm guessing the keynote of the day is for me to keep my shit to myself... and have a good long hard quiet think.

This is the area of the card that I was drawn to... the light, the expression on the Hermits face today is unhappy instead of the usual Wise. And, the brightness of the moon feels as bright as day for me. Ofcourse, we are JUST waning from a full moon, and the nights have been as bright and clear as day the last few.

It wasn't the water, or his perch,... it was all about sky and moon.

So. I guess I'm stuck to write anything further, if today is all about keeping it to myself.

Humph. My typie typie fingers were all ready to go.

Alas. Until Tomorrow, I suppose!

Equal Rights and Justice

This is the song that popped into my head when this card came up this morning...

I had crazy dreams... lucid, story board running, with warnings about Easter. And just about everyone I KNOW named "Chris" was in this dream and played important roles (along with Mick Jagger and Steven Tyler... and some voice over artists who were all women... I was talking and hanging out with ALL the famous people.) There were also aliens/angels (they were the same beings.) who were bringing ALL the people "up" to the stars.. which were actually space ships. I refused silently to go. We drove on the big white pillared bridge, and then drove back off of it. They couldn't get us in the car... and it was DIFFICULT to drive off the bridge... There were first a wave of zombies who were beamed up, then some school kids who were told when they woke the easter bunny would have visited... and then lots of people I know from my town came, all looking completely frightened and as if they weren't controlling their own feet in the getting to the bridge.

I asked some burning candles what would happen with all the people, and the candles told me they were all going to be Easter Turkeys for the aliens/angels. And then the candles slowly went out, and refused to allow me to relight them when I asked. They were weak.

Anyway.. so... JUSTICE.

I'm half asleep still (despite being up and showered for an hour and a half.) and I'm not sure what to make of the justice card. It makes me a little uncomfortable this morning.

I have work to go to in a few minutes. My lunch is packed and my head is RACING and I'm sure as soon as I put some distance between me and the crazy dreams (that took me 15 minutes to scribble down when I finally woke) I'll be able to review it properly to get some perspective on what it means.

Because it ALL feels like it means SOMETHING today... Something important.

The Sweater.. I mean, 6 of Swords.

Today is my "Monday." I have a shift at work. As I write, it is 7:40am. The alarm started going off at 6:30am, but was knee deep in a dream that I was still exploring, so I hit snooze. Many times. Until 7am. And Suddenly it was 7:10am...

Anyway, I feel physically tired. I would like nothing better than to spend the REST of the day in bed, but I have a full shift at the thrift store. Which is a pretty decent place to be spending time, I must say. However, I hadn't made any dents in the mess in the basement, and so there isn't a box to come out to the thrift store with me today. I spent the day yesterday making hemp bracelets, and thinking that if I DO go to market this year, I'll do readings and sell witchy stuff - and since all my bracelets are knotted with specific numbers, colours, or intentions.. well, they count as witchy stuff.

I digress off of a digression....

This morning I wanted to stay in bed. Heck, I could still roll back in and resume the dreaming. But I won't.

The card of the day is the SIX OF PENTACLES (Using my Druidcraft tarot today.) When ever I read this card, for ME, this represents the Hermit WITH people, in a giving capacity. Charity without selfishness. Giving giving giving. When I drew the card, I figured its message for me today is to be GIVING and selfless. Which is a challenge when all I want to do is get back into bed. Maybe it would help if I got OUT of the comfiest pink-and-penguin, flannel pajamas EVER.

I looked at the last card(s) of the day I drew.. and I STILL am feeling a little perplexed by them. Which means they'll be an even greater surprise when I figure it all out.

However, today's card makes total sense. I will be working for someone else, doing a lot of customer service, which involves me being "The best, most perfect version " of me. (Does anyone remember the song "The Sweater?" It's one of those things I refer to all the dang time...

OMG. I just found it on youtube. Not a great version, but good enough. I used to quote this all the time...

Six of coins, Lori. Focus.

Sunday, Card(s) of the Day! April 1st.

So, two cards came out today. The Sun, and stuck to it the Prince of Pentacles... AGAIN!

Today has been a lazy day. I slept till 10am (which NEVER happens.) after having EPIC dreams that I really should write down because there's a whole novel in there. Did some follow up with my home businesses, tidied the TINIEST bit, visited and fed and cleaned out the rabbit cages... had lunch. Waiting for a lady to come over and pick up some ViSalus, and then some friends are coming over to get their cards read, and THEN going to my inlaws for dinner.

So, see, lazy day.

It is overcast. And I pull THE SUN. COUPLED with the Prince of Pentacles.
So, yay for the sun - new beginnings, touchable progress, Energy and optimism! Ok, that one is easy.. And I think that the Universe wants very much to make a message clear, when I get the same card again. Did I miss the mark? From my book (man, I haven't referred to it in a while!)

"When not referring to a person, this card can indicate that a practical , patient and methodical approach to a project is needed, or that these qualities need to be used in improving your health through exercise and nutrition. Alternately, it may suggest an impending overland journey." the keynotes for this card are Practical, Realistic, Sensuous. Very Taurus. But a moving Taurus - a Taurus who is of service, taking responsibility, is moving out into the world.

Sigh. I'll get this yet. And I suppose that I'll simply meditate on the two cards, which mirror each other in their representation - on the horse, facing the same way, although they seem opposites also, don't they?

Spirit Voices.

Met a couple for a reading yesterday. They digitally recorded the session, and caught some spirit laughter on their recording. I sat with them for at least half an hour before even picking up the cards. We talked about spirit stuff going on in the house, etc etc. (I don't want to get into too much detail, because it's still their private reading...) But, I hit a lot of things that they were able to verify right away.

It's a new thing for me to hit that right away - I almost always start with the tarot cards, and transition into spirit messages, or connections with guides. So, this was a very interesting read for me too! Once it started coming, it all came very quickly. And this couple really put me to the test :) They both had questions about their own sides of the family, so I was moving from "one side of the room to the other."

And, coupled with that, the woman had her own sensitivity, and attracts just about EVERYTHING around her IN, so I had to sift through ALL the other energy surrounding her! Ha!

It was only supposed to be an hour sit down, but we went an hour and a half, and I STILL felt like we weren't done... But, we are making an appointment to meet at their house with some other family members soon, so we'll be able to continue on then.

Oh, and it's monthly draw day! I had better go and do that!
