No one really knows where tarot originated or where the answers come from, although of course there are many theories. It’s mysterious, which I think adds to the allure.
Tarot is a system of 78 cards; 22 of them represent archetypes and are known as the Major Arcana, and the other 56 describe everyday situations, feelings, events, people, stages of growth, etc, and comprise the Minor Arcana. When you get a reading, often a number of cards are arranged in a spread, with each card’s position adding detail and information to its core range of meanings. Cards can also be read without using a specific spread. Taken together, the cards will tell a story or lay out a picture of the energies present around whatever question or area the reading is focused on.
Tarot does not predict the future. What it actually does is give more in-depth information about what’s going on in the present. These are things of which the question asker, or querent, may or may not be aware.
I love tarot for its ability to cut to the chase of what’s going on with us, and to empower us to be proactive in taking needed action (which is sometimes no action) in our own lives. Tarot isn’t interested in being the boss of you— that’s your job. The cards just give you information so that you can make better-informed decisions, should you so choose.
I don’t do medical or legal readings, or ones about other people— just you.
In a nutshell, reiki is healing energy whose aim is to connect you with your essential nature. The system that channels and directs reiki was founded in Japan by spiritual teacher Mikao Usui (1865 - 1926). The experience of receiving reiki varies from person to person, and from session to session. Yours may be different from mine, from other people's, and from your own past experiences. Responses to receiving reiki can include feeling deeply relaxed, feeling nothing much at all, falling asleep, feeling as if something has cleared, feeling increased warmth or coolness where the reiki practitioner has placed their hands during a hands-on session, feeling more grounded, and feeling waves of energy moving. (This is not an exhaustive list.)
Everything and everyone is connected. Since you're here, I suspect that you already know and feel this in your bones and heart. Reiki is an energy, so it isn’t bound or limited by time or space— like thought, it travels through both— and when we’re consciously holding it in that way, we call it distance or nonlocal reiki.
Distance reiki can help with everything hands-on reiki does, and also
sending healing to a painful or traumatic event, situation, or relationship in the past
helping with a stressful event in the future, such as having a difficult conversation with someone, taking an exam, planning a wedding, having a medical appointment or procedure, looking for a new job
when you are unable to come in for a hands-on session or need to send reiki to someone who isn’t physically present
when you want to be cozied up at home, out in nature, or in another place of your choosing for the reiki session.
All reiki appointments are for distance reiki.
