My magic making corner
It includes art, astrology and inspirational books, fresh peonies, tarot and oracle decks, a handwritten golden vision card and a diary to record my thoughts. All covering an air duct, much nicer to look at!
Do you have a special space you prefer to create or connect in?
I’ve been practicing intuitive readings regularly since the beginning of 2019 but always visited psychics / intuitives every few years for a check in since I was 18 years old and have regularly read my horoscope and studied astrology over the years.
Since 2019, I’ve had the opportunity to read for others in person at Green Spirit, coffee shops, an art and music festival and virtually.
I mainly do them for myself these days, as a regular spiritual and inner compass check-in.
I like to use pendulums, my favourite and most responsive is a citrine one I made by accident, which was supposed to be a bracelet. But nope, it broke and when I tried to rethread it, it began swaying like a pendulum and now I have a homemade one!
I also have a beautiful aventurine stone silver pendulum purchased from a tiny shop in Galway, Ireland, which I love.
But I also receive nudges through books, songs, signs, nature, conversations and many other forms of communication…I do find the divination tools have been helpful for me to ‘turn the volume up‘ on my intuition and they sometimes help me cut through any mental clutter clouding my judgement or testing my gut instinct.
It can be like a breath of fresh air once you decide to lead from a place of knowing, trust and flow, truly listening to your body, soul and feelings.
After exerting so much energy pushing, pulling or striving to keep up in a time which is constantly tempting you with distractions, doubts, desires, comparisons, news, chatter and noise.
It feels great to get out of your head and into your body – so walks or movement help too and I often get my clearest messages and best ideas when I’m not sitting still and overthinking.
Taking the time to explore more
I’ve sampled a few different decks over the years, some have been passed on to others and the main one I’m using these days is The Light Seers Tarot. Very creative, colourful, inclusive and inspiring.
Here are some sample questions for you to try out with your spreads, journal prompts or favourite divination tools if you’re seeking a stronger connection to your inner wisdom:
- Is what I’m trying to actively manifest what I really want to / desire to manifest?
- What is the next right step for me?
- What am I not seeing?
- Do you have a message for me?
- How can I best recharge / hit refresh on my daily routines?
I do make a point of clearing my space, setting an intention and receiving information in the highest good of all involved, or from the highest truth and compassion prior to my readings.
I also try to close the connection afterward and practice regular grounding rituals and exercises – there is a lot of information out there (search online or in your local libraries) if you’d like to explore more ideas and concepts for protecting your space, energy and inviting guidance in.
