Tarot was once veiled in mystery and hidden from everyday use, but that is no longer! I am finding that many people are now ready to see it as the profound tool that it truly is.
Tarot and Oracle cards are a refined symbolic language that we use to speak to our higher selves, the part of us that is the Universal Consciousness. This new view on the Tarot is dispelling the mystery and superstition that once surrounded this wonderful spiritual language.
In my workshops, we enter into the sacred through our own personal doorway, using our unique relationship to symbolism and move away from the memorization that holds back intuitive connection. This approach really assists us to use the cards as the translator of divine communication, rather than the source of it.
I have created four decks to use for this purpose, The Inner Wisdom Cards, The Spirit Animal Cards, The Chakra Affirmation Cards and Mary’s Magical Message Cards. These are for sale on this site, both in the store and under the Free Insight Readings menu item (where you can draw a card any time from these decks). Other decks I am presently working on include, The Relationship Guidance Cards, The Dream Deck, Identities, The Inner Healing Cards and others. All my decks are designed to access your inner symbolism and deep personal wisdom and to offer opportunities for growth and healing. Have a look under the Free Insight Readings bar!
I offer Insight Readings both in person, over the phone or on skype, please contact me at email@example.com or 703-860-2333 to schedule an appointment.
