Revealing Light Oracle…cards for the spirit

Well…after 6 months in development, I’ve finally sent the first of my ‘indie’ oracle decks on their way – to the US, to the UK, around Australia, and to Europe. The Revealing Light Oracle was created with the awareness that everything we go through, the good and the bad, and those mountains we think we are never able to climb, add up to a strong spirituality, and a strong connection with Spirit. Each card was developed with an understanding of the soul’s growth. We may come into this world with a lot to learn…, with a contract for what we go through, and a purpose and meaning to fulfill…but, hopefully, we grow, we understand, we become aware…and it all gets easier and more joyful as a result.

As someone who has battled and survived cancer, experienced all manner of bereavement, and grief and loss, I can say that nurturing spirituality is, probably, the most joyful and rewarding thing I have ever done in my life (aside from bringing new life into this world). Once understood, spirituality and connection to the Divine, offers a chance to transmute mere knowledge into awareness and a state of being, and the opportunity to understand the secret to positive manifestation.

Of course, life is rarely a ‘walk in the park’, even for experienced souls. There are still lessons to learn, and mindfulness is an ongoing practice. However, the relationship with Spirit and the connection to our higher selves is worth every effort, and self-reflection and adjustment.

But back to The Revealing Light Oracle. It was a labor of love and a chance for me to return to one of my past pursuits, writing, creative development, and publishing. The 40-card oracle uses imagery, chakra colors/energies, elemental symbols, astrology, and numerology as well as keywords and phrases to stimulate spiritual development and awareness. I use it most days as my ‘go-to’ oracle…perhaps because it mirrors the spiritual side of our human experience. My favorite cards are Hope, Moving On, Review and Gateway…well perhaps all of them, but I am biased. I have a small number available which you can purchase from me by emailing revealinglighttarot@gmail.com. Please put Revealing Light Oracle in the subject line.

The video below shows a reading I began with the Revealing Light Oracle. I only got a couple of minutes in when the laptop cut out because of an incoming call on my phone (the two are connected and usually I have my phone on airplane mode when recording). As I got to 1:50 minutes I felt the familiar presence of the light orbs. I realized then that although the reading had cut out, I should keep the video because of the strength and visibility of the light orb. I then used the counsel in the card to handle a pressing issue. It turned out to be the right approach. That card was ‘Review’ with the words: “there is always more than one option”. This demonstrates the value of an oracle or tarot deck. You are tapping into your own intuition, your higher self, and Spirit. There is nothing more affirming than that…

Tuning into Nelson Mandela’s legacy

A few nights ago I tuned into the energetic vibration of former South African President, and freedom fighter, the late, beloved Nelson Mandela – known as Madiba which is ‘father’ in the language of the Xhosa clan (Mandela’s clan).

Like other freedom fighters of an impossible era, when apartheid and suppression were endemic across the ‘white’ world, in countries where colonisation had displaced Indigenous peoples, Madiba was one of the many lights that led the way…his brilliance transformational when you consider he was thrown into a jail for 27 years. Yet despite the bars, the loss of liberty, the cruelness, he had this to say when released: “As I walked out the door toward the gate that would lead to my freedom, I knew if I didn’t leave my bitterness and hatred behind, I’d still be in prison.”

Of all the wonderful legacies Madiba left us when he passed at 95 years; his inspirational words which were a reflection of his inner journey to real freedom, one stands out at this time for me. It is: “It always seems impossible until it’s done.”

I reflected on why that particular phrase resonated with me, and it is this…

Life as we know it serves us restriction; it dishes up all manner of painful situations, health issues, family dysfunction and a host of loss from the death of loved ones, career and jobs…and even identity. The inevitability of our own transition from this life to the next is felt as, perhaps, the biggest, most unchangeable loss…if you don’t understand one truth. There are always…always possibilities no matter what the situation.

I have been inspired by Madiba from the time I first heard his incredible story of courage. He was, and is, inspirational. Always the human being…a man who admitted his mistakes…those mistakes did not diminish or tarnish his legacy. When I tuned into his energetic vibration; to his story, his time, his legacy, I found inspiration again and reinforcement that whatever comes our way, and while we might flounder until we come to terms with our inevitability, “it always seems impossible until its done”.

What’s beyond this physical life?

Most of us can go through life not giving much thought to our mortality. We’re obsessed with the obvious; our career, our relationships, our finances and sometimes the petty squabbles that we allow to bleed through and disrupt our equilibrium. What comes next after this life is something we leave til the last minute. And who can blame us? We like to think we’re immortal, that we will go on forever and so when illness or the unexpected comes along, we are floored.

Yet death is inevitable.

There is a Latin funerary inscription I came across recently while visiting a touring exhibition on the Roman Empire, at the National Museum of Australia. I was taken so much with it that I photographed it on my iphone:

What stood out for me was “…For death is the nature, not the punishment of humankind.” When I think about that, it makes sense; it’s in our nature to die a physical death but does our spirit continue? Everything that I’ve experienced through clairvoyance and mediumship tell me that there is life beyond an earthly existence. Whether we believe that or not, depends on faith. I don’t mean faith in a religious sense but faith in the unseen, what is not apparent but is nevertheless real.

There are many scientific studies on life after death…if you need the proof. Scientists have recently been revising 20 year old theories on consciousness, concluding that: “The quantum information within the micro-tubules is not destroyed, it can’t be destroyed, and it just distributes and dissipates to the universe at large….it’s possible that this quantum information [stores in can exist outside the body, perhaps indefinitely, as a soul.” You can read more about this study here.

From a metaphysical point of view, there are ways we can tune into what is known as the ‘Afterlife’. We can do this through the Clairs…clairvoyance and clairaudience for example, and we can do this through mediumship…all abilities that human beings can access, sometimes automatically and, at other times, with training. It would surprise you just how common seeing a loved one after they pass can be…certainly it’s been common for me and for nearly all the people I know.

But at the end of the day, it’s a matter of belief and, as we know, beliefs can be as hard as concrete or as fickle as inattention. However, if you put your attention on the spiritual, on noticing the truly magical that is around you, you begin to actually see the signs and the flow of all things. And if your brain tends towards the sciences examine one thing…the nature of energy. Energy is real. It can be felt, and there’s no reason to think our energy does not continue after our physical bodies die.

How do I know what I see is real?

One of the wonderful things about ‘reading’ for someone is the validation that often occurs after the reading.

Often when I begin a reading and tune into the client’s energy, I receive a series of pictures/images which allow me to bring forward my clairvoyance. These pictures guide me toward the central reason/s the client has requested the reading – often it is the core of the problem that, once acknowledged, can help initiate progress or provide insight and reflection. At other times I will ‘hear’ words and phrases (clairaudience). At times, I see these words and phrases written on a notepad.

Of late, I am reflecting emotions which provide an indication of the issue that might be causing a problem, for example, the need to express or release something that is troubling or has been bottled up.

For many years, I received these pictures and felt the feelings, and didn’t know what to do with them. Mostly I kept it to myself or tried to explain it to help someone, or correct something. It wasn’t until I was diagnosed with cancer and underwent treatment that I strengthened my connection with spirit and understood, for the first time in my life, that I needed to use the gift I’d been given.

When my clients return with validation, I smile quietly to myself. I don’t linger on the good news as ego shouldn’t come into a connection with spirit. Rather, I try and remain humble and hope that the information I was privileged to impart; the guidance I hopefully provided, will be helpful.

I believe we all have these gifts, and that we know more than we realise. One of the ways to strengthen our intuition is to use it. So next time you’ve got that gut feeling, acknowledge it, use it and learn  to trust it.
