Last Newsletter of the Year
So now we come to the end of 2014. This was a big
year for change, at least for me.
The Universe decided it was time for me to stop wasting
my talents by housecleaning for a living (altho I am very good at
that) so it gave me a back injury. I had little signs before this
but I ignored them, this got my attention! In 2015 my goal is to find
a source of income that will allow me to stop cleaning altogether
(I still do it twice a week).
I am now single again. That makes the holidays hard
at times but it is Brian I miss, not Michael. I am having fun going
out with girl friends and flirting. Enjoying this time doing what
I want and discovering who I am now. The right guy will come along
when its time and it will be magic.
These things cleared the way for me to do things I
have been putting off. Like making incense. Doing tarot readings professionally.
I finally got the energy right for doing magick again and will be
making candles after the new year. Infinite Flame was begun during
January so its the perfect time for it's rebirth.
These changes were tuff to go through but they will
make me happier in 2015. I hope whatever changes and challenges you
were faced with in 2014 will do the same for you. The new moon on
the Winter Solstice heralded a chance for a new beginning, so lets
take it and create the life we have always wanted!
Tarot Reading, Incense, and Stuff
The next Holistic
Show at Gibraltar Trade Center in Mt. Clemens is January 16,
17, & 18. Lets all hope for good weather so I can be there!
If you didn't get what you wanted for the holidays from me or other
vendors, this is a great time to treat yourself. Wore down from the
holidays? Get a massage or healing from Millie or one of the other
talented healers that will be there. Or if you just wanna get out
of the house, come to the show and visit with us.
I am now doing tarot readings by phone! Go
to set up an appointment and pay. I have put a scheduling app on the
site to make it easy. I offer a 30 minute reading for $30 or a
60 minute reading for $60. I have blocked out the days I houseclean
and am at shows, plus two days before a show as I am busy doing last
minute prep. Appointments are made 48 hours in advance through the
site. If I have free time, I will post on Infinite
Flame's Facebook page that I am available for readings so be sure
to like and follow Infinite Flame. (for
these readings I will take the credit card info over the phone and
process with the app I use at shows, unless you prefer to pay with
PayPal through the site once we connect by phone).
One of the tarot speads I do is an overview for the
coming year. The layout is like the 12 card horoscope spread but each
of the 12 cards shows the overall theme or focus for each month, a
13th card can be added for a summary of the year. Any month that you
want more info, another card can be drawn.
I have put Infinite Flame's
incense on the website. They are priced at $3 for a 10 pack or
2 packs for $5. I have a limited number of cones for a few of the
scents but these are only available at shows. Recently I made Pine,
Myrrh, and Frankincense Orange Blossom. Get them here.
As some of you know, I have an account
on Twitter but I'm not sure I'm going to keep tweeting. After
4 months I am not getting very many followers and honestly am not
seeing the point of it all. It is like Facebook only your text is
limited. If you use Twitter, please follow me and spread the word.
If i can get it going I'll stick with it.
Twitter is where I started Tarot Tuesday, where
I draw a card that gives advice for the next week. I have started
putting Tarot Tuesday on Facebook too as I can write more. I am doing
Stoned Saturdays too, where I post info about a stone or crystal,
again on Facebook too as I can put more info. Working on other ideas
for other days.
I originally wanted to write about the history of
tarot cards but have not had the time to really research this topic
thoroughly. So that will be the topic of another newsletter.
Instead I'll write about stones and crystals that
enhance one's intuition. There are many stones that are known to help
one connect to spirits, the Universe, and /or your sixth sense.
Most readers will have clear quartz and/or
amethyst on their table. Clear quartz has been used for channeling
and to communicate with spirits. It also enhances the energies of
other stones. Amethyst is an extremely powerful and protective stone
with high spiritual vibration. It opens intuition and enhances psychic
gifts. I have 3 clear quartz points I recently started keeping with
My new wand has Tibetan quartz and ametrine
at each end of a deer horn. I purchased it when I decided to start
reading cards professionally because I wanted...oh, I don't know...to
enhance my gifts, protect my cards, help me focus. I just felt I needed
something new with my cards. It was made by RA Moonhawk "Wizard
of Wands", whom I met at a show in Ann Arbor and then he did
the October show at Gibraltar. His wands are amazing. He wrote on
the tag that it is for "balance, transformation, open the
3rd eye, meditation, and abundance". I definately was going
through a transformation and yes, the abundance aspect is nice. Deer
is one of my totem animals and I think that is why I was drawn to
My personal favorite stone to have on the table when
I do readings is labradorite. To me, the way light reflects
from within the stone is symbolic of hidden things coming to light.
Labradorite promotes psychic abilities, & helps one to understand
intuitive thought from the subconscious mind. It increasees intuition,
psychic development, esoteric wisdom, provides help with subconscious
issues, and mental illumination. I have a small labradorite sphere
I have kept with my cards since I purchased it years ago.
Moonstone is an obvious choice, because of
its association to the moon and feminine energy. Moonstone makes conscious
the unconscious and promotes intuition & empathy. Enhances psychic
abilities and helps develop clairvoyance, worn as a pendent it encourages
you to accept your psychic gifts. It comes in many shades; white,
peach, blue, silver grey, and black. Whichever you are attracted to
will work, altho some think the white is the most powerful. I have
a silver grey one in a cage that I wear sometimes when I do readings.
Black Obsidian is a good choice too, as a piece
with a smooth side was orginally used as a scrying mirror. Nothing
can be hidden from obsidian. It is strongly protective and removes
negative spiritual influences. Hmm, I have an apache tear that I'm
thinking needs to go with my cards.
A stone that is new to me but I feel is extremely
spiritual is howlite. I purchased some tumbled stones to sell
and the energy was so calming yet at the same time I felt connected
to everything in the universe. I made a necklace with a howlite pendant
and chips to which I added hematite to provide some grounding to this
uplifting stone. Then when I looked up the properties it said "Links
to the spiritual dimensions, opening attunement and preparing the
mind to receive wisdom and insights. It assists journeys out of the
body and accessing past lives. Foucusing your sight into a piece of
howlite can transport you to another time or dimension. Placed on
the third eye, it opens memories of other lives." Wow. (I
don't have a picture of this stone yet)
So those are the stones I use for enhancing intuition.
By no means is this a complete list. If there is a stone you use that
I didn't mention, feel free to email me about it. I'll pass on the
info in a upcoming newsletter.
*Note: After I sent this newsletter, I added
my apache tear to the stones I use for readings. When I did the next
reading for a client I also put my new carnelian sphere (which has
an "eye" on it) on the table too. The reading went extremely
well as did my ownyearly reading I did later the same day.
Have a safe, happy, and prosperous new year!
