(Art by @carolinemaniere ) The word "shaman," meaning holy person, is from the Evenki tribe in Siberia, but it's roots stem from the Pali word "samana." The Pali word "samana" derives from the Sanskrit word "sramana," which also means holy person. Through migration across the Bering Land Bridge, shamans spread across the Americas, where they came to call themselves medicine wo/men. The same practices, honed over centuries in prehistoric times, influenced the development of these traditions from Africa and Asia to Europe and the Americas. As language, culture, and customs changed over time, the practices evolved and diversified, taking on varied forms but retaining similar underlying core principles. Now, we live in a time when these divergent strands of knowledge and practice are reuniting, like streams rejoining the sea. The challenge of the modern mystic is to integrate all the available knowledge in order to discover the deeper underlying truth common to them all. This challenge demands that we abandon discriminative thinking--which only leads us to see contradiction among and within disparate traditions--and adopt integrative thinking--which allows us to syncretize the puzzle pieces back together.
I address my spirt guides the same way they address me.

T H E R E V E A L 🃏🔮 *These are general readings. Comment below if this resonates.* 👇 ❤️ One.
Five of Fire.🔥 “Competing goals. Bothersome details. Conflict with others.” These may not be large problems and they can be overcome if cooperation is sought. However, petty disorder. Can easily get out of hand and drain energy away from key issues that need to be resolved. If this situation emerges around you, try not to become involved, for if it is handled correctly the turmoil will just blow over. Don't be tempted to add flames to the fire. If you need receptivity, then now is not the time to present your latest great idea to others, as there is the likelihood of power struggles and competition. Keep it in your drawer for another day when the energy is move conducive. “I surrender to a power greater than me.” ❤️ Two.
Four of Fire. 🔥 “Contentment, peace, and abundance. A happy home life. The successful completion of a project.” You've safely navigated your way through the obstacles to a place you need to feel proud of. Matters at home are rewarding. Someone may be getting married or planning to move in with a partner. Peace and harmony have been established, and now you see stability and commitment. There may be a milestone event in your career, or a successfully completed completed project. This is an exciting time for you and everyone around you! “Obstacles are detours in the right direction.” ❤️ Three.
Ten of Air. 🌬️ “The end of a difficult situation. Embrace the change, and expect things to get better now. Recovering from an addiction.” Fortunately, endings are always followed by New Beginnings. You may feel sadness over what has transpired, mixed with welcome relief. It's time to walk away and embrace the dawning of a new day. Expect your circumstances to improve. It may be time to change your career. Don't put limits on what wonderful things the universe can bestow. Cast your net wide, and see what fantastic opportunities you might catch. There's nowhere to go but up! “I am a Spirit having a human experience and I am here to get closer to love." 🕊️

Hoy no hubo video ya que me encuentro resfriada. Hermoso fin de semana para todos. 💙Carta #1
🔮 Ir despacio.
Es el momento de abandonar las expectativas que podamos tener sobre nosotros mismos o los que nos rodean. Hay que asumir con responsabilidad que las ilusiones que hemos podido mantener no son más que eso, ilusiones. Debemos tener los pies en la tierra, saber qué es lo que sucede a nuestro alrededor y actuar en consecuencia, sin dejarnos llevar por fantasías o posibilidades que nunca van a suceder. 💙Carta #2
La Reina del Agua trae un tiempo de desapego y gratitud por lo que la vida nos trae, sin expectativas o demandas.
No importa ni el deber ni un pensamiento de merito o recompensa.
La sensibilidad, la intuición y la compasión son las cualidades que brillan ahora, disolviendo todos los obstáculos que nos mantienen separados a unos de otros y del todo. 💙Carta #3
Todo cambia, sin que tú parezcas poder hacer nada para pararlo.
No te resistas, déjate llevar, todo será más fácil e irá más rápido. Y en seguida llegarán nuevas oportunidades, sustanciosas ganancias, un nuevo amor… una nueva vida que te llenará más.
Cuentas con el don de la belleza para conseguir todo lo que deseas.
La pasión y el deseo se podrán de manifiesto. Las pasiones descontroladas y desenfrenadas pueden conducirte a un vacío y a una soledad inmensa, pero cuentas con el poder individual para sobreponerte.
Goza y disfruta de las relaciones comprometiendo también tu alma.

I just got @adamjk’s new @theoktarot deck, and I’m in love with it. The color, first of all, is so pretty! It’s the perfect shade of pink. And the art is so simple and amazing. I’ve been using the rider-Waite deck and one of the things that *always* got to me was how religious and gendered the art was. I’m so excited and and pretty sure this will be my go-to deck now.
Date: 19 October 2018
Card: #twoofpentacles, inverted
Message: Now is the time to be very organized and intentional about projects and responsibilities. Stay focused and check in frequently with your goals and how they are progressing. It is not advised at this time that you take on any other projects. If you do, you may find yourself slipping and "dropping the ball" so to speak. Manage and finish one or two things currently on your plate before anything else. Remember you can say no or step away from things you are not in alignment with. Pay close heed to your financial obligations at this time so you are not short or late in payments.
Last nights paper plate carb chronicles featured veggie pizza and yummy mac in bed... Meanwhile the first time the Queen of Wands blessed me with her appearance and she seems to express all the #positivevibes to me! #Vitality#Strength#Power#Growth#Life#Creativity#EVOLUTION
The card gave me chills with its powerful message. Grow where your soul floats! Because when the fire in your soul is ignited shes saying to follow that path dont let the fire go out being someone you were never meant to be. You may end up somewhere you never knew existed but it's all a part of your destiny* When you align with this truth you grow; you evolve, you attract, you attain a higher vibration of light, peace and self reflection.
Love Light & Bliss,

Tools of the trade! (Especially the 🧦) This is a powerful season every year. This year, it’s especially powerful, as Venus is Retrograde and the Sun will soon join her, Jupiter and Mercury in Scorpio. This is an EXTRA Scorpionic and Plutonic Autumn season. Scorpio is ALREADY extra. So we dealin with extra on top of extra! Ancestors of all kinds are making their way through the veil and many are returning to the ancestral realms. A lot of intense energy is moving through us to heal—especially in the sacral and solar plexus chakras. This has to do with the balance of offering and receiving, self-worth, addiction, womb healing, the digestive system and sexual healing of all kinds. We are being called upon to witness our own strength and to change our very DNA expression through healthy practices—which the study of epigenetics confirms is absolutely possible. This is the season of divination—one of the best ways to tap into these energies and learn how to use them to heal yourself, your ancestral line and the world. If you want to learn more, ask! All questions are welcome. No questions are stupid. Curiosity is one of the highest forms of intelligence. If you want to book a session, but you’re not sure which type is best for you, send me a DM and we’ll chat about what will best suit your needs. Sending lots of love, light and protection. 💛🔮🐍🧙🏻♀️☘️🍂🧜🏼♀️ #divination#earth#earthbased#earthbasedliving#healing#tarot#astrology#horoscope#chartreading#autumn#scorpio#intuitive#witch#epigenetics#energy#pluto#ancestors#ancestralhealing#balance
General Love Energy Drawing (singles) 💜Friday Oct 19, 2018
Some exciting news for some long time singles out there! It looks like love might be brewing for you! If you are feeling hesitant for whatever reason--maybe you feel as though you've been single for too long, or maybe your last relationship didn't end well-- The cards are saying that the ball is in your court and should you choose to go along with your heart's desire, you will be rewarded! However, always remember to love yourself as much as you love this partner. Give generously, but only if your cup is already full. 💜💜 #tarot#thewildwoodtarot#vintagewisdomoracle#generaltarotreading#lovereading#singles

Poster I put together for my Mardi Gras Krewe's annual fundraiser, costume party, oyster and pig roast this weekend, called "Pig for a Mule". ALL ARE WELCOME!!! DEBAUCHERY AT IT'S FINEST!!! Right down the street from The Morgue Haunted House on Canal St. Awesome door prizes, raffle, oysters and roast pig, live music, costume contest, jello shots, and beer, beer, beer! Funds earned go towards the mule rental to pull our float through the French Quarter on parade night during Krewe du Vieux. 12" x 18" Posters are available for purchase. Doesn't that sweet little pig look SO confused? Really, that's a real photo I found of a chick gettin' sexy with a piglet in a fur coat. I just did her makeup. So weird.

This was a deeply personal #tarot reading for me, today. It's in regards to a very big decision I've been making which is, to say the very least, timely and painful. #queenofswords is telling me that the decision needs to be made with the facts, the truth, from a logical space, not an emotional one...this is huge. #fourofwands makes me believe that my decision, if I listen to the Queen, will bring peace and happiness, and the #tenofwands tells me that my hard work (and it has been very hard and will get harder) will be rewarded, but that it will also be a burden (which is what it's always been) That makes sense too me. #FuckDepression#MentalHealthAwareness#MakeChesterProud#ptsd#metoo#warrior#rainn
Messages for the Collective for October 19th: .
First, in the realm of relationships, the message I heard here was “through thick and thin”. Any trials and challenges coming up will serve to bring you both closer together and make the connection stronger. For others of you, low self esteem & insecurity, yours or someone else’s, is blocking your true love connection. The other person sees you as an absolute gift and perfect for them, but you’re not receiving their love because you don’t love yourself enough. .
With career, I’m seeing that any financial struggles are stemming from you not following your heart about your path. Don’t do anything for the money alone, do it for the love. Your divine talents have the capability of providing for you, in ALL ways, if you only just believed in them. Do you think Spirit would guide you to do something with your gifts and talents if the universe wasn’t also intending to support you? Of course not. This is a time, as the supporting oracle message states, where you’re finding dormant gifts coming up that are meant to be used and shared by you. Embrace them. I also started hearing the Drake song “Started From the Bottom” 😂 so however low or discouraged you feel about your situation, know that you will be ascending to higher levels soon enough. Believe it! .
Finally, tune into your heart’s voice and intuition to understand the truth of something, especially if you’re agonizing over a decision you have to make. In this tarot deck’s 5 of Pentacles, you see Arya from the show Game of Thrones. If you follow the series at all, you will probably recognize the scene depicted here as being when she was temporarily blinded, her vision taken away from her as a way of learning an important lesson. I feel like many of you are in a similar place right now. (Cont. below..)

Twin Flame Spread - October 18
These energies are amazing. The Tower is here. This is the Divine stepping in to move things out of stagnancy. I feel the Divine is giving DM the confidence needed with this energy to move forward with an offer to DF.
I was guided to clarify the Tower. Please swipe photo to see what this Tower is doing. This Tower is bringing DF and DM into union - 2 of Cups. DM is in the Emperor energy to fully take leadership of their lives and overcome fear to offer and start a new emotional beginning in love. This is the Ace of Cups that this Knight of Cups is offering to DF.
This Emperor energy has the strength to approach DF who is in this Queen of Wands energy. DF was in the 7 of Pentacles energy and waiting for the harvest of those Pentacles - a return on all the energy put into relationship with DM. This energy shifted as this Queen energy does not put her life on hold. This Queen is holding the Ace of Wands and moving into a passionate new beginning.
There is so much yellow in the Queen of Wands card. DF worked on clearing and balancing their Solar Plexus Chakra. That’s why this Queen energy is confident and grabs hold of life. DM could feel this energy shift and knew DF was moving forward, but was still not moving forward to DF. This was due to fear of facing DF after what happened in the past.
DM made a decision to start a new beginning with DF, but was not moving. In steps the Divine with this Tower. This Tower is the Divine working within DM to bring them into this Emperor energy. This is an epiphany. I’m hearing, “Why have I been waiting? This is what I want.” The Tower is powerful, potent energy. If this resonates, this energy can extend over the next several days. Whew!
Love and light!💕✨ #twinflame#twinflames#twinflamejourney#twinflameseparation#divinefeminine#divinemasculine#twinflamereading#twinflamereadings#tarot#tarotreading#tarotreadings#tarotreadersofinstagram#tarotspread#tarotspreads#tarotcards
