Hello, and thank you for visiting my website.
My young life led me to a particular dislike of prejudice, be it national, religious, or any other kind which seeks to deprive individuals of their right to just be who they are. But difficulties I experienced early in my life had a very serious effect on my development into adulthood. I spent most of my adulthood lacking in confidence, not believing in myself and convinced that I would fail in anything I tried to achieve.
My outer world naturally reflected all the doubts that existed in my inner world. And guess what, I did fail superbly. Why? Well, even though I naturally gravitated towards promotion in jobs I got, (as of course, the ability was always there) I promptly found ways to sabotage myself. I just didn’t have the confidence, or the feelings of self-worth, to make the most of the opportunities the universe sent me.
As you can see, much of my prior life is certainly contrary to where I’ve been more recently and I have to say the change in me is significant. It goes to show anyone can improve their lot if they are determined enough.
My Spirituality & Oracle Divination
I’d like to tell you a little about how I ended up doing this. For sure if anyone told me 20 years ago that I would be a Spiritual Life and Tarot Coach in the future, I wouldn’t have believed them.
My perspective was that I needed science to tell me that something was real before I would believe it. I scoffed at such things as divination and mediumship, putting them down as superstitious nonsense. I was an objectivist, or that’s what I thought.
I read books mainly espousing business based objective ideologies and steered well clear of anything “mystical.”
Or at least I did, for a few years. It’s a strange feeling you get though when somehow you just know that there’s something “missing” from your world view, but you just can’t nail it down. There was a deeply hidden part of me crying to be heard, but being suppressed in the name of objectivism.
How strange that I didn’t acknowledge my own “mystical” nature, when I always seemed to feel drawn to the bookstore or library, just at the right time for my next book to “jump out” at me almost as soon as I found myself right there in front of where it’s sitting on the shelf. How strange I didn’t notice the lights change in my favour all the way there. How strange I didn’t notice those little synchronicities and how my reading choices slowly led me to a somewhat different world view than that of the staunch objectivist.
I’ve always believed that it’s important to look at all sides of an argument before making up my mind about what to believe. As such, my reading expanded beyond the strictly objective, as I began to delve into that mystical space I had previously avoided.
I grew up with little faith in the dogmatism and “hell and damnation” type rhetoric of contemporary religions, who I feel use fear of retribution as a means of power and control. My nose, therefore, led me towards the older faiths and religions and I quickly developed a strong affinity with paganism, particularly Wicca and Druidry.
By this time, I was studying runic lore and how to read and interpret rune stones. Around 2005, I bought my first deck of tarot cards. The more I read, the more I practised. The more I practised, the more it worked. The more it worked, the more I believed.
So over many years, the sceptic turned into the believer and reading turned into practising. I decided that it’s time to share my experience with others, by offering a spiritual life coaching and oracle reading service, which I began in August 2017.
I believe it is up to everyone to decide for themselves who they are. We all feel our way through life as best we can, learning and growing as we go. We can’t know everything, but we can learn anything.
I also believe that everyone who dares, no matter what they’ve been through, can improve their lot if they will only put in the hard work required.
In a world where everybody and its dog is trying to tell you what to think, here is a place where you are encouraged to make up your own mind. Here is also a place where you are encouraged to improve your lot, to do the hard work needed, to become the very best version of you.
