Messages from your Animal Spirit Guides, and Celtic Messages – Your Meanings:




  1.  Top Left:  Humpback Whale

    Music is essential to your healing and well being, whether singing, playing an instrument, or listening.

    In Chinese, the symbol for Medicine is actually derived from the symbol for Music.  Tibetan Singing Bowls have been used for over 5000 years for healing.  Even in Shamanism, the Medicine Man would ask his patient when he had stopped singing – if it had been quite some time, then singing, playing an instrument or listening to music was recommended as beneficial to their healing process.

    You have drawn this card today as a sign that music will be of great benefit to you.  Whatever aspect of music you love the most, you are encouraged to turn up that stereo, get singing, or pull out that favourite instrument and let yourself flow with the healing sounds.

    Other possible meanings:  Singing, Breath-work, Sound Healing, Sensitivity, Alchemy, Ancestral Wisdom, Creativity, Inner Depths, Insight, Healing, Release, and Guardianship.

     Top Right:  Zebra

    Let go of your fear and know that you are safe and protected at all times.

     Sometimes when we enter the realm of the unknown or unfamiliar, it’s quite natural to feel some doubt or fear, perhaps even some anxiety.  Our minds have an uncanny ability to create doubt and dream up certain possible scenarios as to how things may go wrong – the path can become clouded and uncertain.  Challenges may seem to present themselves, and there may be the feeling of being stuck and uncertain of which is the best step to take – if any.  Many people nowadays seem to attribute the label of “fear” to many things – but it isn’t “true” fear.  True fear is essential, it is vital, and it is something that can potentially save you from a life-threatening situation.

    You have drawn this card as a reminder to come back to centre, to let go, ground, and make sure you are getting enough of the basics, such as sleep, healthful food and beverages, and exercise etc.  Take some time to yourself, and mentally relax your mind and muscles, from your head to your toes.  Remember to breathe.  In these times, it can be very valuable to reach out to those closest to you for some laughter or support and enjoy the company of others.  And remember, you can call on your angels or spirit guides to help, support and assist you as well – they are always there for you.

    Other possible meanings:  Protection, Guardianship, Alertness, Kindheartedness, Compassion, Individuality, Compromise, Challenge, Analysis, Illusion, Magick, Sure-footedness, Confidence, Changes, Agility.

    Bottom Left:  The Hillfort – Refuge, Safety, Security

    Hillforts were large, defensive structures containing both homes and stores.  They were protected by high banks and deep ditches and were often built on hilltops.  They kept the inhabitants within safe and secure, and provided great protection – except for the most persevering of enemies.

    This card has come to you today to remind of ‘safety in numbers”.  Sometimes when we don’t feel safe, or feel as though we need to defend, we need to gather with like minded people who feel the same – whether it is on a personal, local or global scale.  In Celtic tradition, sometimes attack can be the best form of defence.  And in these challenging times, we need to stick together for the greatest good of all.  So call a friend – or a few! – join a discussion group, or support a cause that you are passionate about and get involved.

    Bottom Right:  Dagger – Defence, Security

    In Celtic tradition, most adults would carry upon their person a small dagger.  It was usually used for food, but if the need came, it could be used for defence.

    This card brings a warning of potential danger from a nearby source.  It could be from a person, situation, event, or something you are working on – if you have chosen another card here today,  that may help clarify.  This card urges you take the right steps to defend yourself.  Ensure your own actions and words are diligent, remember to treat others with kindness and courtesy, and try to defuse any unpleasant situations rather than fanning the flames before things may come undone, or reach a critical point.  You may also like to remember a safe person or place to retreat to incase things turn sour.  If you can remember to be peaceful and kind to others, you lessen any karmic debt coming back upon you.  This may also mean that instead of pushing an issue, it may be wiser to use the power of silence during this time until things have time to settle.

With much love, may you blessed with every footstep upon your journey.

This reading has been performed with blessings asked for your highest good, and highest healing benefit – with Nag Champa incense burning softly in the background.  You may like to burn a little of this incense to invoke a deeper connection with your reading.


Celtic Messages, and Healing with the Angels Oracle – Your Meanings:




  1.  Top Left:  The Wildwood – Disorientation, Temptation, Excitement

    You have been drawn to this card today because there is a strong temptation to give in to your instincts and impulses right now.  You are craving excitement, perhaps even the unusual and exhilarating – you yearn to be taken out of yourself for a while, and do something totally different – where you are free, adventurous and spontaneous.  Indulge yourself in this feeling, but make sure you have a safe passage home.  Be wary of strangers or dangers on your path, and familiarize yourself with any new surroundings.  This may take away slightly from the spontaneity, but even the most courageous and brave hunter, never enters the forest without first being armed!

    *This one fell from the deck during the shuffle, indicating an important message from Spirit.


  2. Top Right:  The Crow – A New Start, Clearing the Ground

    You have been drawn to this card today, as this is a sign it’s time for a new start.  Right now is a great time to examine your life, clear the ground, and get rid of anything that is no longer needed.  You may like to give away, or recycle items or things you no longer desire or have use for.  Like the Crow, let nothing be wasted, but also be ruthless with what you choose to keep.  Getting rid of things you no longer require, can also mean situations, people, habits or even ideas that you feel may be holding you back from achieving your potential.
    This card says to be more discriminating in the future, and to be careful with whom, and how you spend your time.

  3. Bottom Left:  Ideas & Inspiration

    Card Meaning:  Pay Attention to new thoughts and ideas that come to you.  They are seeds of magnificent co-creations with God.

    God, the Divine, the Universe – speaks to you through your thoughts – and choosing this card today, shows that the angels (messengers) want you to notice and follow the repetitive thoughts you may be having recently.  These thoughts are higher guidance, and answers to your prayers – not just your imagination.

    By drawing this card, the angels seek to support you, to lend you confidence in the fact that you are very capable of receiving Divine guidance and wonderful new ideas, just as any other beloved child of God.  All higher guidance thoughts and ideas, are of a Divine nature, and right now – you are being urged to follow them.  If they support your highest good, then move forward with confidence.

  4. Bottom Right:  Support

    Card Meaning:  God, the angels, and the Ascended Masters who love, protect, and guide you are watching over you right now.  You are not alone, and you are safe!

    This card has come to you as reassurance that you are not alone, and that you are a part of a much greater community of spirits, powerful, loving, creative, and supportive.  Every one of us has guides that watch over, protect an guide us – often intervening at crucial times, or sending us signs and messages along our path.  If ever you need their help, assistance or protection, they are there for you instantly – all you need to do is ask.

    By drawing this card today, the angels (messengers) ask you to call on them more frequently.  You may even call on them to assist you in helping others, as right now is a time where so many people are in great need of care and loving support.


With much love and many blessings upon your journey,

Guidance from the Shadowscapes Tarot – Three of Wands

Three of Wands - Shadowscapes Tarot
Shadowscapes Tarot – Artwork by Stephanie Pui-Man Law

This reading was divined with the soothing scent of Ylang Ylang burning softly in the background.  If you would like to connect to this card or reading on a deeper level, please feel free to burn a little of these as you read or gaze into the image.  You may find that by doing so, you can open yourself up to receive your own Divine messages as extra guidance.  Feel free to comment below.

Shadowscapes Tarot ~ Three of Wands

A woman stands at the edge of the world, upon an unsure stone bridge stretching out across a vast valley, overlooking a wonderful river flowing by.  All is as it is meant to be.
This woman stands, gazing at the distant horizon… pondering her next step.  Does she turn back, as some of those before her have done?  Or does she take a “leap of faith” into an uncertain future?   Those who have come and gone before her have left hints at their journeys and dreams, represented by the wands standing absolute in the stone bridge behind her.  Will she leave her dreams upon the bridge also?

The world before her is so beautiful.  The sun, the river, the valleys, the sky…  She takes a leap of faith, and the stone bridge starts to form anew beneath her feet.  She creates her own path, her own bridge to cross – perhaps into an uncertain future – but it is hers, and she is claiming it with faith and trust.

This card has found its way to you today, as encouragement to keep going, to take a leap of faith, and to follow your heart and dreams.  This is YOUR path.  Claim it!  And trust that this beautiful world and Universe only wishes to take care of your deepest desires and heartfelt dreams, if you would only be brave enough to take the steps toward them.  Have no fear, leave fear behind you – and step forward into certain uncertainty.  Take a risk – because if your heart truly beats in the direction of your dreams – the Universe will conspire to make them so.

With many blessings and much love wished for you upon your journey,
Namaste and arohanui – Carolyn x



Hamilton Expo 2015, Haunted Auckland, and AMORC

Hello!  I hope you are well =)

So, it’s June now!  And my eldest son Bronson, and I, just attended the Hamilton Women’s Lifestyle Expo 2015 – which was held mid May 2015 in Hamilton, New Zealand.  This was Bronson’s first time coming along to help me out, and my second year in a row attending as an exhibitor.

It was a lot of hard work, but mainly – it was a lot of fun!  I was really impressed with how friendly and helpful Bronson was with everyone, and he really learned a lot.  It was great fun meeting new people and greeting new and old friends who came to visit as well – we even got to meet quite a number of Facebook fans!!  So there was lots of laughs, chatting and hugs going on!  Quite a number of people decided to pick a free Angel Oracle, or Archangel Oracle card for the day – and every person who did had a great reaction – it was so awesome to see!  I even had three ladies all pick up a pendulum each and start using them all at the same time in front of me – it was such a cool thing to witness – all this magick happening right before my eyes!  I truly loved it.

And the other exhibitors were so friendly and generous as well – my son Bronson couldn’t help himself and kept getting free samples of the Gourmet Italian Bread that had been baked, and was filling the whole expo with its luxurious aroma – so the kind lady ended up giving him two huge slices which he walked off with quite happily!!  Haha, oh dear.  Thankfully we did purchase some too, and that lady sold out half way through the second day!
We had a fantastic time, so we will be back again in 2016 Hamilton!  See you then!!

We stayed in a lovely motor inn named Park View, which was perfect for us.  It even had a spa bath which I made sure to make use of after a long day at the expo!  I think Bronson was just wrapped to have free wifi haha.  While we were staying in Hamilton, we also visited a couple of friends who live close by.  One was my long time friend Vicky who helped me with my first ever expo, and she had a new born bubs I was eager to meet!  Little Sydney is a gorgeous wee boy!  Well done mum and dad, and Steph too (their oldest daughter)!

The next Women’s Lifestyle Expo is in Wellington.  It’s only a couple of months away, though I haven’t decided wether I will go this year – however, it’s definitely on the cards for 2016 if I can’t make it this time around.  A whole new place to explore, and new wonderful people to meet!  Can I really say no?!!  Let’s just hope my mum will come to the rescue and babysit my youngest two boys again lol – fingers crossed!

Haunted Auckland – Paranormal Research and Investigation Team

At the end of December 2014, I was contacted by a great guy named Mark Wallbank who asked me if I was interested in becoming one of Haunted Auckland’s newest members, as a paranormal research investigator.  This means actively going to alleged, current haunted locations and people’s properties, and doing practical research using technology like cameras and EMF equipment etc – plus some reason, logic and other historical research etc. doesn’t go astray!

I was quite surprised to be asked – and after sitting with it for a few days, I decided my answer was YES!!  I have always been extremely interested in ghosts, angels, aliens, and strange occurrences etc, and this suited me to a tee.  Getting a fright by a Spirit or strange occurrence has never left me scared – it almost always makes me laugh, and I tend to get quite curious and intrigued.  I want answers.  I want it to happen again.  I want something to happen that shows me there is more to everything, than meets the eye.  So, I am happy to be a part of this wonderful and supportive team of great people, who have a keen interest, and who do intelligent, practical research, always asking great questions, thinking outside of the box, and are open to many different possibilities.

I have been on just a few investigations so far.  My first ever investigation was a Public Ghost Hunt at Kingseat Mental Asylum this year – where we invite people to come along with us for a hunt in the dark – bring your torches and your screams!  Haha, it was great fun.  I thoroughly enjoyed myself and am always keen to go on both private and public investigations when I can manage it.

The last time the team met up, was just this Sunday passed, and we were given complimentary tickets to see the new Poltergeist movie, by 20th Century Fox, who was promoting our team with the release of the new movie.  I took my two oldest boys, and we met the team and some fans from our Haunted Auckland Facebook fan page.  A great night out with great people.  Good stuff.  Come on over and give us a like!!


Rosicrucian Lodge and Temple – AMORC – the Ancient Mystical order of the Rosae Crucis

I have been a member of this wonderful order since 2012.  This great place is like my home away from home.  Where I can be myself, and speak of wonder.  Where I can tone sacred sounds, speak of extraterrestrials, speak of how life came into existence, how we are all One and intricately connected, the wonder of nature and cycles – the wonder of All – and it is a place where the wonderful people completely support each others ideas and intelligently discuss with each other.  A place with amazing Egyptian artwork everywhere, enticing the senses and curiosity.  Exciting things are happening this year, as we celebrate our 100th anniversary in Auckland, New Zealand.  Please feel free to visit our website if you are interested in learning more!

New Creations

After settling back in from the expo and getting things reorganised, I have quite a number of photos to take for new listings, so please bear with me as I get everything photographed and typed up!  I also have many new ideas just bursting to get created, so I’m excited to be creating some wonderful new pieces as well.

With much love and many healing blessings,

Carolyn x

Healing with the Angels Oracle, and the Shadowscapes Tarot – Your Meanings:



Earth Magic Oracle, and the Shadowscapes Tarot.
Earth Magic Oracle, and the Shadowscapes Tarot.


  1.  Top Left:  Island: Solitude

    You have been drawn to this card today because the Universe and your guides are letting you know that you need to spend some time in Solitude, and pull back from the hectic schedule of life. In this modern day, there is always so much to do – creating a false sense of urgency. We tend to be on the go, our body and mind being pulled from one thing to the next. This takes us out of alignment, and we don’t fully live in the present.
    The time has arrived for you to sit back, and be alone with yourself and your thoughts for a period of the day – be it morning, midday, evening – or perhaps an entire day. You are urged to seek some solitude – preferably in peace and silence, and reflect and observe upon your life in general. You may have some thoughts pass by that create a sense of unease – acknowledge and release these to the Universe, God, Spirit or your Guides, and breathe through it.

    As the image in the card depicts, there is a beautiful, strong tree in the midst of the dark and barron landscape – yet even in such conditions, there is always Light – and where there is Light, the is always Life. Remember that You are a Light, and Life, and the possibilties of life are as numerous as there are leaves and branches upon a tree. So, take some time for yourself. Ground. Breathe. Come back to the Present, and to who you truly are.

  2. Top Right: Summer Solstice:  Radiance

    This card has come to you as a reminder to let your inspiration and Light shine forth from within you. If you have any troubles or worries right now, you are being encouraged to release and let these go, back to Source, the Universe, God or your Guides for resolution. Remember to have gratitude for everything good in your life right now. Giving thanks and gratitude is a great way to bring you back into the Present Moment, and attract more goodness into your life. This is a great shift for you to focus upon. Take a moment, rest for a moment – breathe in all of the goodness and the abundance that you have in your life right now, give thanks and gratitude – and exhale any worries or cares, knowing that Spirit will provide a resolution for you.

    In the image on the card, the radiant Sun is shining in all of its glory. It is at the peak of it’s time through the solar wheel. Since before ancient times, the Sun has had its predictable cycles, and was eventually measured by our ancestors throughout the ages. During the year – and this only happens twice per year – the Sun rises and sets in the same place upon the horizon for a few days in a row. It is like it is having a much needed rest, before continuing on with its next cycle. This is a sign for you to do the same. Keep shining, take some much needed rest and respite, and keep going. Taking a break allows us to re-charge, come back to the Present Moment, and continue forward. Breathe, and come back to the Present, and to who you truly are. Keep going.

  3. Bottom Left – King of Wands

    The King of Wands has come to you today as a reminder of strength, power, unity and One-ness. The gorgeous King in the Tarot card is surrounded by nature and its creatures, powerful totems of the animal kingdom which he lives with in harmony – protecting them, nurturing them, and honouring them. This King is very attached to the Earth, and its creatures – and very passionate about them. They are his Light, and his Life. He will continue to protect, and have the best interests of nature and its vast wildlife, in his mind and heart for the rest of his days.

    It seems that you, or someone you know is just like this honourable King. You have the best interests and intentions in mind when it comes to nature and its bountiful wildlife. Do you champion a cause? Do you have a loved one in the animal kingdom who has recently passed over? They know you love them! Do you make extra efforts, or are you interested in making extra efforts to do with nature and wildlife? This card is a sign that you or someone you know has a “calling”. This person can be of great benefit to helping our world thrive, because by sharing their love and passion, goodness spreads. We are all so intricately connected, and we must do whatever we can to protect this Earth, and all inhabitants. When you work with love and passion, you gain a Midas Touch – everything you touch turns to Gold, and flourishes. A King’s duty.

  4. Bottom Right – III The Empress –  Third card of the Major Arcana

    When the Empress comes to visit you in a reading, she carries with her a song of love, a song of fresh and full blooms, a song of transformation. She exists in the “Tween” Moments and Times where your heart exists – ever present, all knowing, in rythym with life. She is connected with the Earth, and with it’s blossoming and transformative nature. She doesn’t cling or hold on to anything, but shares and gives freely of her bounty. She shares freely, from her heart and without any bother of reward – for her ability to share and give of her love and gifts – IS her reward.

    There is a lady or person in your life who is just like this. It could also be You. This person is a kind, loving and giving individual and is always there to help others and share with them. It could be that a new romance is on the cards, or that one is blooming to a new level, love transforming. If you or this person are single right now, they or you may like to remember that love comes from within and has a very transformative effect, not only with loving others, but Self-love as well.
    Love has the power to heal, and bring us back to our true Nature. So Nurture yourself or a loved one, or let a special someone know just how much you love them – it could even be as simple as a loving gesture. Share your love and gifts today.


With much love and many blessings upon your journey,

My Adventures Through 2014 to 2015

Hello!  Warm greetings to you from Auckland, New Zealand!

So, it has taken forever for me to find some time and write about 2014.  I can’t believe it’s March already!  Wasn’t it just Christmas?

I think I may start with the wonderful wedding I attended just after Christmas 2013 actually, the first one I’d ever been to.  I was invited by the Master of our Grande Lodge at AMORC (Ancient Mystical Order of the Rosae Crucis), who was the groom.  This was a very special double wedding, where they had two weddings within a day of each other.  One was the regular Church wedding with family, friends and Rosicrucians, held in a gorgeous cathedral in Auckland City.
The second was a Temple wedding inside our Temple at Lodge, for Temple members and very close family only.  Both were such amazing, heart warming ceremonies to be a part of, and I felt so honoured to have been asked to attend as a friend of the Master.  The Temple wedding was also unique, as it was the first time in 15 years that one had been held there!

2014 was an interesting and challenging year…

…Getting out there and doing things I’ve never done, and visiting wonderful places I’d never been to before.  I met some amazing people along the way, a few I am happy to call new friends.  My youngest son Saxon also turned 5 years old in December, and started school in 2014!

My new Honda CRV SUV
My new Honda CRV SUV

In 2014 I bought myself a new car!  My last one was such a headache when it started leaking oil.  I was sad to see it go.  Being a bit of a car enthusiast, losing my VR4 Mitsubishi Legnum (manual with a V6 twin turbo and 4WD) was slightly difficult for me…  But, it had to go, and I soon found a great SUV that suited me and my boys much better.  And, as it turns out – is fantastic for traveling!  Bonus!  There’s even a fold out table in the boot – how about that?

2014 was the first time I took my family to Hobbiton, in Matamata, New Zealand.

We stayed in the beautiful Rotorua, and drove a good hour to reach Matamata.  My son Sean (12) said it was one of his dreams come true to visit!  And secretly, it was one of mine too!  We went on a small bus ride to get to the Shire through an amazing landscape, and went for a two hour Guided Tour, exploring with a big group.  You can guarantee I was one of the last ones to catch up with the group, staying behind to snap as many awesome photos as I could…. while my mother carried on ahead with my kids – and yes, my boys were so excited, they were at the front of the pack!

We all enjoyed a free Ginger Beer at the Green Dragon Inn after the Tour, before our bus came back to get us.  We were so happy to have visited, had an amazing time, and were totally worn out when we returned to Rotorua!

I went to my first Expo in May 2014.

My first time as a vendor at the Hamilton Women’s Lifestyle Expo.  My awesome long time friend Vicky came along to support me, and was my faithful assistant for the weekend.  A big ask!  There was lots of work and preparation to do months before the actual date!  I’m so thankful for a great friend like her to help inspire me along, and put in the effort to help me over four big days.  I was so very nervous leading up to the event, having never attended an Expo as a vendor before.  I am also quite the Hermit, but can be a social butterfly as well – I guess I can be both – must be the switchy Gemini nature hehe.

Thousands of people came through the Expo, and I even met a few fans from my Facebook page!  It was a lot of fun.  I got to meet some great people there, and managed to chat with some other stall vendors as well and had a wee look around when I could.  I was actually so busy that I forgot to take photos while inside, and also forgot to post to Facebook to let people know I was there!  Whoopsie!

A great thing though, is I have been invited back for the next Hamilton Women’s Lifestyle Expo 2015, and also for the one in Tauranga in August (still making final arrangements!).

After the excitement of the Expo, I came back home, unloaded the car and had a bit of a break, allowing my adventure to soak in.  However, it wasn’t long until my schedule was completely booked out by Custom Orders/Commissions!  I was completely booked from one creation to the next, spanning from July until late November 2014.

Living Intuition – Tauhara Retreat, Taupo

In between commissions, I received a most unexpected call from one of the other vendors at the Hamilton Women’s Lifestyle Expo, by the name of Jehanne Thomas.  She was doing wonderful Tarot Readings at the Expo.  Jehanne rang me a week before her own Retreat in Taupo was taking place, and asked if I would be interested in attending, and lending my Dream Weaving/Dream Catcher crafting skills to the wonderful people attending the Retreat she was hosting.

It took a couple of busy days for me to organize, but in that time, I sorted a babysitter for 6 days (thanks Mum!!), and took the opportunity to travel to Taupo for a great Retreat.  My first time going on a retreat, and my first time teaching two classes to create their own handmade dream catchers.  We all had a great time, and everyone said they really enjoyed making them!

Again, I met more awesome, loving, generous and interesting souls, each on their own unique journey, and each gathering together in Retreat.  I found that I spent a lot of my time outside, out in the bush, gazing at the lake, or speaking with others there.  A wonderful, relaxing time.  I will definitely be back – especially for that fully catered vegan menu!  Oh my gosh, it was to die for – and the most full I have ever been!

Thanks Jehanne, and Tauhara Retreat Center!

Our family trip to Waiheke Island, Mum’s birthday, and Pure Craft Nz turns 3 years old – January 2015.

I haven’t been to Waiheke Island since I sailed there with my family as a kid, not much older than my second son Sean.  I booked out a wonderful holiday home with its own Bali Hut outside, right next to the beach.  I invited my mum along (coincidentally her birthday on the last day there and my business Pure Craft Nz turned three that day too!), and took my three sons Bronson (15), Sean (12), and Saxon (6).  It was my children’s first time on a ferry, and their first time staying on Waiheke Island.

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

We had an amazing time exploring the beaches and island, and discovered that there were tunnels under the hills in Stoney Batter!  So off we went to explore those for an afternoon.  It was a big drive (almost the length of the island), and a big walk to get there, but totally worth it.

The kids loved going to Rocky Bay Beach (left my phone in the car! Didn’t get photos lol), and we all loved going to Surfdale Beach at sunset after tea.  My two youngest boys ended up going wayyy out into the mud as it got darker and darker!  They didn’t want to come back – especially Saxon!

Note to Self:  Take camera EVERYWHERE!

Thanks for reading about, and sharing in my journey through 2014, and into 2015!  May 2015 be an awesome experience for everyone!

Many blessings and kindest regards,

Carolyn xx

Archangel Michael Oracle, and Earth Magic Oracle – Your Meanings:



Archangel Michael Oracle, and Earth Magic Oracle
Archangel Michael Oracle, and Earth Magic Oracle


  1.  Top Left:  – You and Your Loved Ones Are Safe

    You have been drawn to this card today, because it is a sign that Archangel Michael and other angels are watching over you and your loved ones, both here, and on the other side. He has come to reassure you that you don’t need to worry, to relax, and to have faith that everyone, including yourself, and those you care about, are safe and well protected.

    If you have worries or fears, release these to your guardian angels, to God/Source, or to the Universe, and they will take care of everything for you. Let go, and have faith.

    Other possible meanings: Give worries and cares to the angels – Your financial needs are being taken care of – Your business is protected – It’s safe to travel – A loved one in heaven is happy and is sending you love – Remember that worries are actually a form of prayer, so only pray for that which you desire.

    Michael’s Prayer: “Dear God and Archangel Michael, thank you for watching over me and my loved ones [name individual/s]. Please help me feel secure and at peace; and fill me with faith so that I may focus on my priorities and enjoy a healthful, happy life.


  2. Top Right: –  The Person You’re Asking About Is Trustworthy

    You have drawn this card today because you may have been wondering about a particular person’s trustworthiness. This card comes to say that the person you are thinking about, is someone you can rely on (this can mean yourself too). Everyone makes mistakes and can misbehave at different points in time, and remember that no one is perfect, and neither is this person – but make no mistake – this person does care about you, and you can be assured that they will act in the interest of your highest good.

    Also remember “Do unto others as you would have them do unto you”- keep your karma (action) good, and you will attract more goodness, and trustworthy people, into your life.

    Other possible meanings: Your idea is valid and trustworthy – The person you’ve just met will become a new romantic partner – Believe what this person is saying, even if you don’t like what you’re hearing – This individual will make a good business partner – Let go of blaming others, and give anger or un-forgiveness to the angels for healing and resolution.

    Michael’s Prayer:  “Thank you for helping me have faith so I can open my heart wider in my relationships.  I ma grateful for your protection, ensuring that only trustworthy people are in my life.

  3. Bottom Left – Green Man – Synergy – *This card fell from the deck symbolizing an important message*

    This card has come to you as a sign that right now, you have a fresh and amazing synergy happening. This is a time where everything is seeming to just fall into place – like peices of a puzzle fitting together – a time when you are aligned with nature and the cycles, with your will and intent, and with the will of Spirit. When you and Spirit are aligned, goodness manifests in such ways that you move forward effortlessly in life – your dreams and desires become attainable.

    Remember to keep yourself balanced and aligned in ways you may already be doing, and keep focused.  Give thanks and gratitude.

    Affirmation: When I am aligned with Spirit/Source Energy, my life manifests goodness effortlessly.

  4. Bottom Right – Lake –  Stillness

    This card has called to you, because you are encouraged to take some time for yourself to rest, relax and reflect. In this modern day, there seems to be a false sense of urgency – where for some reason, we have to hurry hurry hurry. It can be so very easy to get caught up in the habit of a fast paced life, and the technology associated with it – there are so many things to do! But we must remember that stopping and resting, is equally as important as doing – if not more so, sometimes. It is a natural way of the cycles, helping to bring you into alignment.

    Stopping and “smelling the roses” allows us time to just Be. To pause, to breathe, to reflect. To slow our clock down, and be still as this Lake scene.

    Affirmation: When I stop, slow down, and rest, I allow myself to recharge and come back into balance.

With much love, I wish you many blessings upon your journey.

  1.  Top Left:  Children  – You are asked to pay extra attention to your children or your inner child right now. New children may be coming into your life very soon.

    You have been drawn to this card today as it symbolizes a need to get out and have some fun with your own inner child, with your own children, or other children in your life such as grandchildren, neices or nephews etc. You may also be someone who looks after children on a regular basis, such as in your job. Or it could also symblize catching up with a friend that you enjoy having fun with.
    Whatever is the case, it’s time to get together and enjoy eachothers company doing things you love to do together. You may like to create art together, play games, play a sport or head to the beach or out for a bushwalk. Even having a good chat with eachother can be a great time and opportunity to laugh and have some fun.

  2. Top Right: Signs – Pay careful attention to the messages the angels give you now. You have asked for a sign, and they deliver it. Notice and trust these signs!

    You have chosen this card today because you have been asking for help, or for a sign from the heavens to come to you. The angels assure you that when you ask for their help, or for the Universe to send you a sign – that it will come to you. Make sure you are aware of synchoicities in your life, and messenger symbolism. Messenger symbolism and signs can come in many different forms. Be open to observing what comes to you along your path.
    You may see an interesting bird fly closely past you, a beautiful butterfly may come to you and catch your gaze – or you may be having repetative thoughts, songs, or numbers that pop up. Trust that these are your subtle signs – just keep your mind open!
    The angels would also like to remind you that whenever you ask for a sign – it’s always best not to ask for a particular sign, but to let them decide the best guidance, signs and messengers for you, upon your journey.

  3. Bottom Left – Queen of Wands

    The Queen of Wands is a beautiful and radiant Queen, who commands the attention of all in her prescence. She is a soft, subtle, yet powerful and graceful Queen who has a great ability to captivate all who come into contact with her. She is intelligent, funny, caring, loyal and firm, with a great love for those around her. Naturally the center of attention, those around her seek to soak up her wisdom, her beauty, and the love she exudes.
    You have drawn this card today because either you are this beautiful and radiant Queen, or you know someone who is! It is always wise to heed the guidance of this wonderful lady, to listen intently to her vast knowledge on an array of topics, and to just be at peace in her company.

    If this card represents you, remember to listen to your own wisdom – sing your own song, play your own tune. Remember to act upon what leads you to your highest good, and remember to be conscious of the well being of others.
    If this card represents someone you know, remember to listen to her wisdom. There is something there meant to help you along your path. Remember that whatever is said, she is there for your highest good and well being.

  4. Bottom Right – Wheel of Fortune

    The Wheel of Fortune is a never ending story woven throughout our lives and throughout the world of cycles, and of life itself. One season gives birth to another. One dies, one is born. Autumn leaves fade to be reborn – and so the cycles go – on and on. Night to day, high tide to full tide, New Moon to Full Moon – there is an unmistakeable pattern throughout life. One woven intricately through to the next.

    This card comes to remind you that there is a Way to things – a rise and fall – a cycle to all things. That everything meets change as the Wheel of Fortune turns. Perhaps you find yourself at a low point right now? This card comes to remind you that as the wheel turns, so does your destiny, your fate. The upside you are looking for is coming to you – so make sure you keep your eyes to the horizon – keep the positive thoughts going. Try stepping back and releasing or letting go of any negative thought patterns or feelings that may be blocking you, for your highest good. This allows you to gain a better perspective, a bigger picture of the upside that is heading your way.

With much love and many blessings, I wish you well.
