I come from a family of psychically-gifted individuals, some of
whom at various times have done Tarot readings, performed energy healings, and
spoken with departed souls. These gifts seem to run particularly strong in the
women on one side of my family, but I happen to be one of the few males who
inherited the gifts. My main gift, specialty and area of most interest is the
Tarot. I'm extremely fascinated by it and seem to have a great connection to
I was called by Spirit to do work with the Tarot, and I remember
that Spirit did so in a very clear and unambiguous way.
I remember sitting on the edge of my bed just after I had awoke one
early September morning, and I heard a clearly audible voice in my right ear
that said, “You have to learn the Tarot.” My wife was asleep, so I know she
didn’t say anything to me. Oddly enough, I looked around to see if anyone was
in the room who might have spoken to me. Seeing no one (obviously), I thought,
“Ok, no more Mexican food so late at night” and then went about my day.
The next morning, I’m sitting on the edge of the bed and, again, I
hear, “You have to learn the Tarot.” Wife’s asleep, no one else around. “Ok, no
more wee dram of Scotch while watching a movie before going to bed!” I shook my
head a couple of times and then went about my day.
The next morning, I’m sitting on the edge of the bed again. Today
is different, though. This time, I hear a voice shouting through a megaphone
saying, “YOU HAVE TO LEARN THE TAROT!” I immediately thought, “OK, I GET IT!”
The message couldn’t have been any clearer!
So I dusted off an old Rider-Waite Tarot deck I had, took an
introductory class on Tarot from a local reader, and my career was off and
running. Soon after the class, my mind just seemed to open up and it felt like
a great fog had lifted from around my brain. The Tarot started making far more
sense to me than ever before, and it seemed immensely comfortable and familiar.
“I’ve done this before, somehow,” I thought. I’ve been doing professional
readings ever since.
I particularly love the symbolism in the Tarot - I never seem to
tire of studying it. It’s amazing how the Tarot incorporates things such as
astrological signs, numerology, colors, and icons from various philosophical
and spiritual systems. I’ve been fascinated by symbolism since I was a very
little boy, so my love for it makes perfect sense and really doesn't surprise
me at all. As you can imagine, I have a number of Tarot decks that I use for my
readings. They encompass a wide variety of symbolism and represent various
artistic approaches and perspectives.
Books have always been an important part of my life, so the fact
that I have an extensive Tarot library is no surprise to anyone who's known me
for very long. I love to read and to study. I have books on almost every area
of interest that cover topics such as card meanings, spreads, reversals, court
cards, the major arcana, tips & tricks, and getting into professional
readings. I also have books that cover how the Tarot relates to topics such as
Astrology, Numerology, the Hero's Journey, the Kabbalah, the Cube of Space,
Jungian Psychology, Jungian Archetypes, and psychology in general. (So many
books, so little time.)
I really enjoy helping people and providing them with guidance and
assistance via the Tarot. The messages I convey always contain information from
Spirit and the Universe that can empower them to see and think more clearly
about the issue(s) at hand. It's such a great feeling when, for example, I see
a client's face light up because something now makes more sense, or when
there's a sigh of relief and a happy smile because a great or heavy weight has
been taken off of a client's shoulders.
As I often tell my clients, "I
just LOVE what I do!"
