I am a great believer in Karma, but just what is it? Karma comes from the Sanskrit and ancient Indian Language with the underlying principal that every deed in our lives will affect our future life. For example, if we treat others badly during our lifetime we will have negative experiences later on in that lifetime or in future lifetimes. Likewise, if we treat others well we will be rewarded by positive experiences.

THE TAROT

THE TAROT

I am not going into how to read the Tarot in any great depth as every reader has their own way of using them and every reader has their favourite pack, mine is the Mythic Tarot, but rather talk about how they came about and dispel any myths about them.

There are many theories as to how they came about one was that Gypsies are said to have carried the cards to Europe and "gypsy" is considered a corrupt form of "Egyptian." They were considered by the Church to be "the devil's picture book", and the cards were quickly condemned by the Catholic Church as heretical. Just to possess them was a dangerous act. There seems no doubt that the cards were a means for preservation of ancient knowledge that the Church considered dangerous, or heretical, at a time when it was literally a danger to your life to believe anything other than the established Church dogma. Like everything at this time the Church wielded great power and in order to assert power and control over the people, it did not like what IT considered anything other than its established beliefs

Another theory was that the Tarot was first known a Tronfi and later known as Taoocci or Tarock and originated from the 15th century in parts of Europe. They were used to play an Italian game known as Tarocchini and French Tarot

Its not known for sure on their origins, but the Tarot images are inextricably linked to ancient beliefs, mythologies, and religious systems such as the Hebrew Cabala. Others, notably Pythagoras, believed that letters and numbers are in themselves divine beings possessing extraordinary powers; the Greek neo-Pythagorean school taught these ideas.

The actual cards number 78 and devised into four suits, the names may vary but they are commonly known as Pentacles, Cups, Wands and Swords. Each suit has pip cards from Ace to ten and four Face cards, therefore each suit has 14 cards. These suits are known as the Minor Arcana. In addition there are the 21 Major Arcana and the Fool.

Whatever you may think of the Tarot they are not evil, they have been around for centuries and they are not going to go away. Many people play card games such as Bridge and that's is widely accepted for modern day playing cards are derived from the Tarot. They are harmless cards that help those with intuitive abilities to interpret and access Universal Knowledge

PSYCHIC QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS

PSYCHIC QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS

IS IT REALLY POSSIBLE TO FORECAST THE FUTURE AND OTHER QUESTIONS?

I am often asked various questions pertaining to the spirit world and various aspects of the psychic, here are some of them: I will in time feature more questions and answers as this webpage evolves

Q. Is a psychic or medium a fortune teller?
A. It may surprise you to know psychics and mediums are not fortune tellers
Q. Is it possible to forecast the future?
A.Well not 100% and this is because of free will.
Q. What is free will?
A. Free will is YOUR right to decide what you want to do about a situation, it is a choice
Q. How does free will affect a situation?
A. Well before we incarnate as Spirit in a human body, we decide on what experiences and challenges that will benefit our spiritual growth. However we are given the choice (free will) as to whether we go through with the experience or challenge. In effect we are allowed to change or mind.
Q. So are you saying we all know what lies before us?
A. Well in a way we all do. Remember we are 'Spirit' in a human body and your spirit does retain a memory but it is deep in our subconscious. This memory is retained deeply for a reason to help us fulfill our experiences and challenges we ourselves chose. However it is also at this deep level so we are not so aware. If you knew what lay before you would you go through with it? Probably not but we still retain this memory deeply and this reflects in our Aura.
Q. So what is the Aura?
A.The aura is The Aura is an electromagnetic field that surrounds living bodies, this includes people, animals, plants and crystals and is composed of several layers that are constantly moving. The Aura links us to whats known as Universal energy i.e. that is all the knowledge in the Universe past, present and future. It is on this aura that psychics are able to tap into and access your past, whats going on in the present and the possible future and I say possible specifically if your goal or desire is dependent on other people, for remember every person involved in a situation has free will.
