I recommend working with Tarot Cards (intuition tools) that both motivate and inspire you. After all, you get to choose your cards. And like choosing friends, you want to pick ones that help and support you on your life path in a positive way.

Here’s a list of my favorite Tarot Decks, in no particular order:

1. Motherpeace Tarot Cards-by Karen Vogel and Vicki Noble

A good everyday deck, and good for learning the tarot with. Motherpeace cards are round and enable the Reader to provide a very holistic/earthy and precise vision of what’s going on. This is the deck I learned on, and the deck I use the most for Readings for myself and others.

2. Osho Zen Tarot-by Osho

A good everyday deck, and good for learning the tarot with. The Osho cards offer a Zen Buddhist perspective that I find to be very helpful when I’m looking for a deeper introspective understanding. The card images on this deck tell a story.

3. Tarot of the Four Elements-by Isha Lerner

A good everyday deck, and good for learning the tarot with. This deck is so colorful and vibrates life. This deck really gives the 4 elements of the minor arcana a voice.

4. Vibrational Healing Cards-by Rowena Pattee Kryder

I’ve had this deck a long time. Though you can create spreads with it, I use it for one card meditative readings and or as single root cards to support full Readings with other cards. The lessons of these cards are energy lessons. These cards go beyond the paradigm of major and minor arcana cards. They present profoundly deep lessons for spiritual growth and evolution.

5. Cosmic Deck of Initiation-by Barbara M. Delong

I’ve also used this deck for a long time. Though you can create spreads with it, I use it for one card meditative readings and or as single root cards to support full Readings with other cards. These cards are round and offer lessons that include titles like: Universal Healing, Law of Cause and Effect, Healer Within, Sower of Seeds…

6. Medicine Cards-by Jamie Sams, David Carson, and Angela C. Werneke

A favorite deck of mine. I use this deck for spreads and one card Readings. The images connect you to the lessons of North American Animals. The book that comes with this deck is so helpful in that it explains the animal lessons with text, verse, and stories carried down by oral tradition.

7. The Kabbalah Deck-by Edward Hoffman

This deck and the book that comes with it introduced me to the meaning of Hebrew Letters. I use this deck for spreads and one card meditation Readings when I’m in need of deeply introspective/esoteric information.

8. Goddess Tarot-by Kris Waldherr

This deck is beautifully rendered and teaches female wisdom from many cultures. It can be used for spreads, one card meditations, and for learning tarot.

9. Medicine Woman Tarot-by Carol Bridges

A down to earth deck good for spreads and one card Readings. This deck would also be good to learn tarot with. The card images present a good balance between male and female energy.

10. Mana Cards: The Power of Hawaiian Wisdom-by Catherine Becker

This deck was given to me as a gift when I was on the Big Island. The cards carry the stories of indigenous Hawaiian lessons. I use this deck for spreads and one card Readings.

11.  Tao Oracle:  Ma Deva Padma

These cards express their wisdom through I Ching symbolism and artwork.  They are beautifully made with warm and nurturing images and come with a companion book that explains the I Ching symbols and the imagery on each card.  They do not contain major or minor arcana.  I use them for one card Readings, and sometimes for full spreads.  The only thing I don’t like about these cards is that the card stock is fairly thick and a bit awkward to handle.

12.  The Oracle of Kabbalah:  Richard Seidman

This deck teaches lessons based on the letters of the hebrew alphabet (aleph beit).  Each card depicts one letter.  The book is well organized and clearly written giving full explanations of the letters, a synopsis of their meanings, and personal anecdotes helping readers to use and understanding each letter’s story.  I use these cards for one card Readings and spreads.

13.  Tarot of Trees:  Dana Driscoll

What a sweet deck!  The creator of these cards has managed to create a full major and minor arcana tarot deck with trees as the main characters.  A student introduced me to this deck and I enjoyed teaching them to her.  They come with a complete book and can be used for full spreads and one card Readings.  The cards are small and easy to handle. 

14The I Ching:

I love the I Ching. This system seems to help me when I’m looking for insight about how to respond to something I’m experiencing.

Buy the I Ching Book of Changes translated by Wilhelm/Baynes and throw coins or…

Learn to do the long version of I Ching with yarrow sticks. For this I recommend The I Ching Workbook Gift Set: The I Ching Workbook + 50 Yarrow Stalks-by Wu Wei. This set has everything you need and really clear directions.

Intuitive Tarot Lesson 1: What is Intuition?

From my experience Intuition is natural. It encompasses all of our senses, the ones we know about and ones that are more subtle. Intuition is part of our survival mechanism. It helps us to see what is around us and is not bound by time or distance.

Some feel Intuition in their bodies, some hear it in their mind, some see it in their dreams, visions, and waking time, and all of us get those premonitions from time to time that tell us that our senses are working.

We all know the feeling when we know something wonderful or not so wonderful is about to happen. With Intuition it’s much easier to know if you should move towards, or away from something or someone.

Trusting your Intuition means you are listening to your whole self. Allowing yourself to listen deeply helps you to stay on your authentic path. It helps you to be real and integrated.

When you develop your intuition you are clearing your ability to receive information you can trust. Intuition is always here waiting to come to your assistance.

Embracing Your Pain – Healing Pain With Compassion and Awareness

Do not shy away from your pain
in fact allow yourself to drop through your heart
and into the deepest roots of it
for it is in that combination of love and pain
you find the anecdote.

Jeannie Zukav

Hello,

This is my first blog on WordPress. So, for those of you who may not be familiar with me, I am a long time professional Intuitive who lives in San Francisco. I offer individual counseling, mentor those who want to learn how to develop their intuitive abilities, and offer Readings for private and corporate events and gatherings.

In my work, I am presented with people who are trying to make the best decisions for themselves. Fear of failure can stop them from opening doors to new opportunities. The mind says something like, “I want to be in love, or I want to apply for a new position, or I want to write that novel, but when I tried before it didn’t work out and I got hurt.” More times than not, after we experience something deeply negative, our mind will vow, “I’m never going to do that again.”

Healing from painful experiences is an important topic, because if your early life was anything like mine was, you probably weren’t shown too many coping skills to help you to deal with your pain in a productive way. I was taught to either suppress pain or to express my anger to others if I felt I was in the right. Suppressing my pain led to depression and trapped my feelings in a way that they couldn’t change. And expressing my anger just added more suffering.  I also found that the I’m right and you’re wrong perspective pitted me against others, and didn’t help to build understanding.

So what are the steps to transforming pain from something that holds you back, to something that helps you to move freely towards your visions? Zen Buddhist Monk Thich Nhat Hanh teaches that we must take care of our pain. That in bringing awareness to our pain we can transform it.

A Sitting Meditation
By Thich Nhat Hanh

Joy of Meditation as Nourishment

1. Breathing in, I calm my body.
Breathing out, I smile.

2. Breathing in, I dwell in the present moment.
Breathing out, I know it is a wonderful moment.

By embracing ourselves and our pain, by sitting still with our pain, by breathing into our pain, we begin to take care of it. We don’t analyze or judge it, we simply sit with it and hold it as we would a crying child. We stay with ourselves during our time of need. Even if we have never done so before. It doesn’t matter if the pain is new or old. We accept that we are in pain and sit patiently with it.

We may feel many emotions. You needn’t analyze them. Just allow them to cycle through with acceptance. We may feel a release. We may feel an ease. We are allowing our pain to be part of our path of healing.

Lessons may arise from this experience. Space opens up. New possibilities and beginnings can come because the pain is no longer stuck. It doesn’t mean that you forget your experiences. It means that you have learned to let them help you to take another spin around the wheel of life and to create anew.
