What we're about

This group is for people interested in Tarot and energy healing. The newbie and the experienced alike are welcome.

We will be about discussing and learning about different energy healing and energy reading modalities, and taking those modalities and blending them together with Tarot. That's a pretty big umbrella, and we'll touch on Reiki, meditation, song, Earth energy, working with your angels and guides, chakras and auras, protection, cords and curses, and clearing up the soul for some joyful flow.

We will be learning different types of Tarot readings and how to create your own spreads so that you can get more of out your cards in a personal way for you. These spreads include messages from your angels, guides, ancestors, ascended masters, the Divine/God/dess, your higher self, spirit animal guide, etc. It also includes chakras, past lives, how to deal with unwanted entities and spirits, etc.

We will also talk about DISCERNMENT and intuition; about how to discern what is your intuition (aka the Holy Spirit, or whatever you wish to call it), vs your own thoughts, and how mental health disorders plays a role in all this. We will also have a crunchy side dish of ethics.

Not only that, but this also going to be about how you can use your cool intuitive spiritual knowledge and abilities in the real world. That it's more than just something you do separate from the rest of your life, that it's all a part of your life.

My name is Ruth ~ Lady of Radiant Joy. I am certified as both a Reiki Master Teacher (3 years) and a Motoki practitioner (lvl 2, 1 year).* I have been using Tarot seriously for about two years (self taught from books and a Udemy course, before that I was just a dabbler). I adore Tarot and often when I do a reading I see energy healing that needs to be done to help the querent! Energy is energy. It doesn't matter the size of the veins they're all connected to the main arteries! Thus, I'm a bit of a "Jill of all trades" in the intuitive energy healing/reading world, and it's awesome. I believe we all have the potential if we choose to tap into it.

My job will be to facilitate learning from one another and to create safe space, with a side order of fun while keeping it real. Suggestions and questions are always welcome!
