Tarot Study: The Empress~3, The Emperor~4, And The Hierophant~5

This is the second installment featuring my write-ups of a Tarot study that I did on Aeclectic Tarot using the Robin Wood deck back in '07. Please see the first post regarding this study: Tarot Study: The Fool~0, The Magician~1, And The High Priestess~2. And please remember, my viewpoints may have, tho' not necessarily, changed since that time.

May 9, 2007 ~ The Empress (3)
Being a handspinner by profession myself, and seeing the Empress twisting yarn on a New Zealand-made, Ashford Traditional spinning wheel, gave me much joy and perhaps a bit of a chuckle. How could someone like myself not feel connected to this woman?!

In my dictionary, "empress": a woman who holds an imperial title in her own right. Thinking about that definition, I'm guessing Robin's Empress isn't spinning as a profession or because she has to...in other words, this Empress isn't spinning because she *needs* cloth for her clothes...she's spinning because she wants to. Because it's soothing and meditative. Because it grounds her to the earth and in her case, to her people. It connects her to her ancestors...all those who came before her and to whom she is linked by the yarn she spins. And hey, when she's done spinning, she's indeed produced something useful...this IS a practical Empress, after all. Perhaps she can use the yarn to knit something lovely for the baby she carries. Despite her rank, she's a humble, kind and nurturing person...who like the High Priestess in Robin's deck, is not pretentious or snooty.

Lush growth and abundance surrounds the Empress. For me it represents the overflow of joy already present in her own heart. And speaking of hearts, the heart on the Beech demonstrates to me that all those around her have been the lucky recipients of her love. Going back to Robin's definitions of symbols used in Tarot cards (Chapter 3), I see that the Beech tree represents "gracefulness, beauty, stillness, peace, old knowledge, ancient wisdom...," ALL things associated with such an Empress, not to mention the task she's performing at her wheel and the mountains that rise in the distance behind her.

When this card comes up in my own readings, I'm reminded that tho' I may not be rich $-wise, I am more than wealthy in countless other ways.

May 10, 2007 ~ The Emperor (4)
Robin's Emperor seems a great pairing with her Empress. Whilst the Empress appears wise and knowing inside, the Emperor looks like he's not kept ANYTHING inside over the years. He also appears to me to be willing to stand up and vocalize/act upon what he believes in, no matter what the consequences.

From a looks standpoint, the Emperor reminds me of a lion...especially with how his hair, both facial and that on his head, flows around his face. Yet, his stern eyes have a certain sense of kindness. Whatever the Emperor makes a decision upon, one can be sure he's being as fair as he knows how.

The Emperor's throne appears to be set amongst the highest of mountains. He is someone to look up to, to respect and to count on. Make no mistake, he is not one to shy away from anyone or anything.

May 11, 2007 ~ The Hierophant (5)
With my roots having begun firmly in the Catholic church, Robin's "Hierophant" is a card that interests me greatly. After reading the chapter in her book on the Hierophant, I can relate personally to so much of what she experienced herself as a Catholic and how it has affected her depiction of a church "leader" in this card.

However, perhaps unlike Robin, I can say I did learn much of value in Catholicism that I have retained despite being Spiritual/Wiccan. Many of my teachers in parochial school were nuns and yes, some of them were beyond awful. But several were as kind, caring, insightful and encouraging as anyone could ever want as an instructor. Therefore, when the Hierophant pops up in one of my readings, I don't necessarily see only the bad side of organized religion. When it comes down to it, when the Hierophant appears in a reading, it depends on the question asked, the spread used, where the card falls in the spread and what I'm personally seeing as I read at that moment. Judging from Robin's book, I'm guessing she would not be displeased at all with this, but instead would applaud me for going with my own intuition.

Jax, Canadian Tarot reader, mentions that the Hierophant card can address teaching/learning of various kinds and in various ways. When it comes up in a reading, perhaps it may mean that I need to look at something from a different angle or try an alternate approach to understand. It may mean I need to search for a different teacher or methodology. It may mean I need to diligently continue the course of study I'm on...or possibly not (especially if I see the Hierophant as Robin intended him to be when she drew him)... There are so many ways and in so many instances we learn in life. There are scores of people (and even animals) who are or can be our teachers...if we take time to listen. This card makes me aware of this. It helps me to know when to walk away, when necessary OR when to stay, if something of value is being shared.

I can say without a doubt, that I've seen church leaders look JUST LIKE the guy pictured as the Hierophant...sour, pompous, full-of-self-importance, smug and dry...dry and withered like someone who hasn't lived life as it was meant to be lived. And maybe one of the worse traits of all was a priest who was judgmental, self-righteous and unforgiving...acting as if his position as priest gave him the right to act as God or do as he damn well pleased. Not a forgiving God, but a fire and brimstone kind of God, minus any kinder, gentler side. A priest who was above the laws...laws of nature, laws of humans, laws of the land...

And tho' the altar boys...for there were no altar girls in my early days...did not have monk-like hairstyles as shown in the card, they did look a lot like the two shown in the forefront. Often when I see the little boy smiling on Robin's card, it makes me think of when I saw altar boys obviously sharing a joke during mass...boys just being boys...for that's what they are. Now, knowing what we all know regarding the news of abused children at the hands of priests and church leaders, I pray that none of those boys I remember fell into the hands of such evil.

So, the Hierophant card brings back many memories for me, both bad and good...a powerful card, indeed.

Prayer

As a Catholic child, my Ma and/or the nuns and the lay teachers at my parochial school taught me all the pertinent Catholic prayers: The Our Father, the Hail Mary, Angel of God (prayer to our Guardian Angel), the Glory Be, etc. I learned prayers to say before meals and could recite what was going on in mass along with the most seasoned Catholic...probably still can. All these years later, I realize that, especially early on, I loved these prayers not so much for what they meant. Let's face it, more than half the time I didn't pay any attention to what I was actually saying. I loved the prayers for their "rhythm"...they sounded good to me...and the ritual of saying them was comforting. Even as a kid, I liked the feeling of being part of a greater "whole;" of belonging. In retrospect, the prayers acted more as a mantra for me, as is often used in meditation; they calmed me and put me in a peaceful state. The prayers made me feel secure. To this day I love saying the rosary, no doubt for all the reasons listed above. I can FEEL my own vibrations rise higher as I pray the rosary and say all the prayers so well learned in childhood.

On a similar note, and also dealing with ritual, Catholics do a whole heck of a lot of standing up, kneeling, and sitting down during a mass. Kneeling used to be a challenge to me when I was a squirmy kid (especially trying to keep my butt from touching the pew), but in general, I actually enjoyed all that popping up and down. And I have always LOVED being in a church/temple/holy building (no matter what the denomination, or for that matter, no matter the religion), especially a cathedral, where the energy vibrations are often so pronounced I can feel them throughout my body, with my psychic antennae fully operating, as if in the highest of gears.

What I wasn't taught so much...or at least I can't remember being taught...is the option of simply talking to God/Spirit as prayer. I'm pretty sure someone, at some point, must have mentioned we could talk to God, but formal, established, pre-written, prayer was definitely more encouraged in my upbringing. 'course we're probably all familiar with the occasional, impromptu, prayers of desperation, when one says, "PLEASE GOD, HELP ME RIGHT NOW!!!!!" And no doubt even, "OH MY GOD!" is heard in the spiritual plane by some Spirit or more.

In any case, as a spiritual being in a human body who is learning, growing, and developing both psychically and spiritually, I have to say that one of my greatest joys is simply talking to God, my Guides and Angels, the Archangels, the Saints (Oh how I have always adored the Saints!), and any Ascended Master that I'd like to have a conversation with. I do this whenever and wherever. But I also now find that I particularly love praying after my morning meditation. Such prayers at that time include smatterings of my earlier Catholic-taught prayers (they still give me great comfort) and a combination of chats involving thanks and gratitude, along with pleas of help for whatever is on my mind. What I now know in my heart-of-hearts is that these prayers ARE heard, and responses are either immediate or forthcoming. As a kid, I was trustful that my prayers were heard "to a point," but skepticism crept in around the same time I started noticing cute boys. I'm happy to reclaim my trust that there's a whole host of folks listening to me on the other side and on the spiritual planes. This time there is no "to a point."

We'd love to hear about your thoughts on prayers and your prayerful practices. Your comments are always appreciated. Thank you!

Teacher

Not long ago dear friend, Rob, posted a poem by W.S. Merwin on Facebook that I loved. Rob gave his blessing that I reprint it here on the blog. Thank you, Rob.

Finding a Teacher

In the woods I came on an old friend fishing
and I asked him a question
and he said Wait

fish were rising in the deep stream
but his line was not stirring
but I waited
it was a question about the sun

about my two eyes
my ears my mouth
my heart the earth with its four seasons
my feet where I was standing
where I was going

it slipped through my hands
as though it were water
into the river
it flowed under the trees
it sank under hulls far away
and was gone without me
then where I stood night fell

I no longer knew what to ask
I could tell that his line had no hook
I understood that I was to stay and eat with him

~ W.S. Merwin ~

Spiritual Insight Training 1

When I returned back from last weekend's workshop at Lily Dale, specifically spent at Fellowships of the Spirit, I wrote this on Facebook.:

How does one write about a weekend so life changing, so exhilarating, so welcome, and so needed? Going to Lily Dale for me was truly "going home." Once I settle and process my thoughts, I'll try to write about this profound experience on my blog. Until then, you can find me sitting under a tree or perhaps lounging on the nearest cloud...grateful, happily exhausted, and with a twinkle in my eyes.

I'm still not sure I can do the experience justice via writing, but I'll try. I'll begin by saying that Chris drove "Miss Jenny" to Lily Dale, stayed with me at a motel in Jamestown, NY (he brought his keyboard and worked whilst I was in class), and once the workshop was over, he drove me back home. Why? Well, for one thing I do not drive. Why? Well, for one thing I have perspective/focusing issues with my eyes and no one would want me driving on the road when I can't judge how far the car in front of us is from our car. But Chris also brought me to Lily Dale because he loves me, wants me healthy and whole, and is protective of me. There was no way he was going to let me go to Lily Dale without checking it out firsthand.

We arrived a little over an hour early at the Fellowships of the Spirit and the building wasn't open yet. Chris suggested we mosey over to the village of Lily Dale. All I had to do is get out of our car, put my feet on the earth, and I could tell this place was for me. Chris, very intuitive and empathic himself but protective as all get-out, said the following as a warning to counter the overwhelming sentiments he was sensing from me, "Now sniff deep, Jen. If something doesn't feel right you need to be clear and open enough to take it in." Yeah right. I got the same feeling when I saw the house we're living in now...KNOWING then and there it was for us. At least I didn't cry my eyes out with emotion as we walked around Lily Dale, as I did when I saw our present house for the first time. We walked up and down the house-lined streets at Lily Dale, with their gardens in various degrees of tidiness, but all beautiful, nonetheless. I'd have to admit that a fair number of the gingerbread-style homes were not in the best of shape, but that somehow didn't bother me in the least. I watched Chris out of the corner of my eyes as he read sign after sign, each with a name advertising the psychic medium who lived in that particular home. It occurred to me that even I couldn't have imagined just a few years ago that we'd find me comfortable and happy in such a place, eagerly anticipating going to school there. Before we left I stopped to swing on a swingset awhile. Chris was busy finding rocks to take back home as momentos.

Chris dropped me off at the Fellowships' building when the time came closer for all to begin, and off he went, back to our Jamestown motel room. As I walked in I was definitely excited, but neither anxious nor scared in the least. Two tables filled with book offerings were set up, so I browsed while we waited for all to arrive. I believe there were about 13 or so folks in all participating. To understand what is involved with Spiritual Insight Training 1, I think it's best to read about it directly from the Fellowships' website: SIT 1. Rev. Elaine and Don were our amazing main presenters for the weekend, but also present were a group of wonderful staff mentors, as well. For more information about the presenters' incredible backgrounds, please go to the Fellowships' website: Faculty.

I wouldn't want to give actual techniques that I've learned here on the blog...it wouldn't be ethical and I'd hate to miss sharing something that was vitally important...better to not go there at all. For techniques, you'll have to consider taking this workshop yourself. But I can share snippets of important moments for me that occurred during meditation, healing, and channeling.

Friday evening we were introduced to meditation techniques that were fabulous. I so loved meditating with this group of very nice, very kind people. During a visualized journey that was led by Rev. Elaine, I ended by going to the Temple of Healing. We were given choices of which spiritual temple we'd like to spend time at, and while some part of me wanted to go to the Temple of Wisdom which is full of scrolls, books, and more, those who joined me on this journey...Light beings; my mother and father; my brother, Jack; my Aunt Loraine; and more gently shook their pointer fingers at me and said, "Uh uh uh...no, no, no," and pointed to the Temple of Healing. I heard, "Healer, be healed." So to the Temple of Healing I went. The temple was GORGEOUS. The whole thing was made of rose quartz and the light that was within was breathtaking. I was placed on a rose quartz slab and all who were with me laid their hands on my body. All of a sudden, I saw the spiritual essences (that stayed behind in the spiritual plane) of my brother, Bob, and my childhood girlfriend, Margaret...both of whom are still alive on earth and also both of whom are sadly estranged from me. They joined the others in my healing. I could feel tears stream down my face as I felt everyone's loving kindness. All of a sudden, myself and the majority of those with me rose and began to take part in a dance of the most exquisite fluidity and beauty. My brother, Bob, had a hard time and held back until finally we did a rather formal, English country-style dance with each other. Unfortunately, Margaret stayed below us all and refused to take part in the dance (Margaret is staunchly Catholic, the religion we both were raised in and studied in school together). Margaret is not ready to accept my spiritual growth beyond strict Catholicism, but I was grateful that she showed up for my healing. And as for my brother, Bob...well, he's very shy and very stubborn, so taking part at all was a triumph. When I "came back" from the meditation/visualization, I realized that what I had experienced was profoundly important.

I gratefully soaked up everything...EVERYTHING...that we did during SIT 1, but I have to admit to particularly loving deeply all that is involved with giving and receiving readings. The very first reading that Rev. Elaine gave was for me. She had asked Spirit who she should give readings to that would be of benefit for all present. I did take notes after my reading so that I wouldn't forget it, and hopefully I've more or less correctly wrote down what Rev. Elaine relayed. She said if we think of the average person's mind as being in 2nd or 3rd gear, mine was always...even as a child...in 5th or 6th gear. She said I don't have OCD or anything, it's just the way my mind works; always operating in "high gear." If my parents had named me "Patience" it couldn't have been more opposite of what I am. I've had to work hard at holding my tongue and/or biting my lips, and have been quite successful in toning down sarcasm that can bubble up unwanted. I don't so much have a problem when someone can't do something...instead I abhor when someone doesn't try or doesn't utilize their full potential. Rev. Elaine said that a MAJOR shift of thinking/feeling has occurred for me recently. It involves knowing that "You can't teach pigs to sing." The great thing is that I'm OK with this knowledge and now don't feel responsible for this fact. She says this new way of thinking and being will be helpful in all areas of my life, from here on out. And finally, Rev. Elaine asked what's up with carrying bugs outside? I told her, "That would be me...it's not just a symbol...it's what I do." I carry bugs out to my dye studio if it's winter and they're in danger of being eaten by Chloe, most excellent black cat, or a squishing by Chris. I carry the bugs outside if it's warm enough outdoors. But if they're spiders, I generally simply move them to a higher spot, away from danger. Spiders are always welcome in my house.

Now as for us giving readings to each other, we were taught methods that are brilliantly direct. After we were given the pertinent techniques, we began giving readings in a rather "trial by fire" way: Chairs were set up in two, straight rows so that we'd be directly facing someone in the other row...kind of like musical chairs, except everyone has a chair. We had only a few minutes to give a reading to the person opposite us. Once finished, the person we just read for then read for us. When signaled, a person on the end of one of the rows moved to the beginning of that row and everyone in that same row slid down into the chair next to them. The new partners then gave readings to each other, etc., etc... It was wild and wooly and I LOVED IT!!! But for some, I could see it was obviously daunting. One person said it was akin to speed dating. Another called it "firing line" readings.

At other times, we formed small groups and gave readings to each other. These readings could be more lengthy and the person being read for had the option of asking questions. Again, as one mentor told me, "This weekend has been a goldmine for you. You're like a duck in water." Quack.

Last, but certainly not any less incredible than meditating or channeling, was the healing component of the weekend. We learned to give healing energy one-on-one and in small groups. During the group healings, I found myself crying, but I wasn't sure why. I cried sometimes when I gave healing and when I received it. Please understand that I wasn't in any physical pain or anything...it was simply and beautifully profound in every way imaginable.

I could go on and on. One more thing, tho', that I'd like to share is that when I began to see a deep indigo/purple being behind the right shoulder of Rev. Elaine, and I asked, in my mind, if I could please see more detail, I heard a firm, "This is NOT the time for that now. Pay attention." Whoah. No problem...

I paid for my workshop with monies from writing an article for Spin-Off magazine. I have finished another article for Spin-Off and am hoping to pay for it in the same way for SIT 2. In the back of my mind is concern for how I will pay for school at Lily Dale after I complete SIT 2. I'll pray and set my intention towards school and know that a way will come that will take care of my tuition. After all, I've found "home" again on earth and it's time to visit it regularly.

Tarot Study: The Fool~0, The Magician~1, And The High Priestess~2

Recently a comment came in by "shiresun" regarding the past post, Thoughts On Tarot Deck Hierarchy and Symbolism. The comment reminded me that over three years ago I had done a complete, self-study of The Robin Wood Tarot on Aeclectic Tarot. My actual study is within a group study of the deck by the same name. Which brings me to this post...how 'bout I reprint what I had written about the various cards in Robin's deck, a little at a time...say, 3 cards per post?! We'll begin with the Major Arcana and then go on to the Minor Arcana. Even if you don't have or are not familiar with The Robin Wood Tarot Deck, what I came up with back then may still prove useful. You may even want to consider buying the deck to come along on this study ride with me. And if YOU have more to add about any card, then please do so in the comment section of this blog. I'll date what I had written, so you can see how I felt "back then"...after all, I may have changed my opinion since then!

'course I'll intersperse posts about other topics in between this Tarot study, just to keep things fresh, varied, and hopefully interesting on the blog. Regular readers of this blog know that Tarot is just ONE of the many things I'm interested in!

I'll begin with a few AT posts (from here on out, this refers to past posts I wrote on Aeclectic Tarot) that I wrote about regarding "The Robin Wood Tarot ~ The Book"...which btw, did not come with my card deck and was purchased separately.

May 5, 2007 ~ The Book
Have started rereading Robin Wood's own book in order to take part in the study group that Lewen began recently. I really like Robin's conversational style...you can tell she writes like she talks in person. It's straightforward and honest writing. I, personally, would LOVE to meet Robin sometime. She's living near my old homecity of Detroit. Maybe someday....

I particularly like that the entirety of Chapter two, "The True History of the Tarot," is:

"The true history of the tarot can be told in a single sentence. No one knows, and does it really make any difference?"

Devoting a whole chapter to just two sentences is PROFOUND in and of itself. Folks who are passionate about things, such as we are about the Tarot, can possibly find ourselves wallowing in details...storming in teacups, so to speak. Is this really necessary?

Does it really matter that the Tarot just might not have come from Egypt...or was possibly not developed in the 14th century, but some later century? Do such details take away the credibility or the amazing possibilities the Tarot can teach us? Do things HAVE to be ancient to be of immense worth?

I, for one, don't think so. The Tarot has already shown me and given me so very much, I wouldn't personally care if it was developed last week.

May 6, 2007 ~ The BookReread chapter's 4 and 5 last night. Again was struck by Robin's honesty and lovely, relaxed style of writing...especially as she explained how her own deck evolved over the years. LOVE how Robin gives key words to think about for "Common Symbols" found not only in her deck but other decks, as well. She's quick to explain that this is what SHE feels/sees when such symbols pop up and we may very well have other reactions to the same symbols. But as a starting point, I find her key words very helpful. When I first read the same chapter over a year ago, everything I read bordered on being excitingly overwhelming. Now, looking at the same writing with a year + of reading under my belt, it's all beginning to fall into place. Nice feeling! I always feel thrilled when I find something I really love and know I can study 'til the end of my life and not learn it all. It's exhilarating!

May 10, 2007 ~ The Book
When I first read Robin's book over a year ago, I found the information in Chapter 12 to be of extreme value. Grounding and centering have become a "must" for me before I read...or even if I don't read, for that matter...and Robin's directions and gentle lead have proven invaluable to me. I had even written Robin's grounding and centering directions on an index card, until I had them secure in my brain. Now, all I can say is that I KNOW when I've not grounded and centered and need to. Jax, (Canadian Tarot Reader), mentions that grounding helps one to make use of the energy of the earth when reading, and therefore you don't come away feeling drained by using up only your, personal, energy. Great advice! Good for those who read for only for oneself, but imperative, in my humble opinion, if you read for others.

May 4, 2007 ~ The Fool (0) To jump right into the study group started by Lewen, I reread the first couple chapters (had read the entire book about a year ago but am excited to go back with a finer tooth comb...) AND I took a long look at the "Fool" in Robin's deck. I feel I can personally relate deeply to the Fool. For one thing, it's the journey of anything...life, work, relationships, projects, etc. that interests me more than reaching the finish line. Is now and always has been, even when I was a kid. That, for me, is the essence of the Fool. On his back he has everything necessary for that journey (of life)...HE (the card has a very male feeling to me for some reason) doesn't necessarily know how to use the tools. He may know the tools are in the pack, but then again, he may not OR he may forget he even has them...a bit scatterbrained, perhaps or maybe just so full of joy and innocence, nothing but how he's feeling and the journey ahead really matters. In fact, he may be so excited to be off on his adventure, he can't even feel the weight of the pack on his own back. This card reminds me, in its positive sense, to never lose the child-like wonder we were born with. Life's blows has a way of diminishing that wonder in each of us. The Fool hasn't been tainted yet by those blows. He's set out on an adventure where ANYTHING can happen. He's not worried that the "anything" might be bad. He's got joy in his heart, a blue sky overhead and his faithful companion at his side. But wait, is the dog barking to remind him that he's getting awfully close to that mountain's edge? Or is the dog just as excited as he is? Maybe better pay at least a wee bit closer attention to details on this journey, eh?...like where the road ends, which way might be best to turn, packing some rations since there might be no where to get food down the line (oops, forgot that!), considering where to sleep for the night...Aah, but the Fool's not worried about any of that just yet. For now, he's just happy to be starting. He'll worry about the rest like Scarlett O-Hara in "Gone With The Wind": "I can't think about that right now. If I do, I'll go crazy. I'll think about that tomorrow."

Added in a separate post, same day:
Remembered another thing that comes to my mind when thinking about the Fool...To quote Bob Dylan, "He not busy being born is busy dying."

May 7, 2007 ~ The Magician (1) The Magician...in Robin's deck he sure is a good-looking guy, eh? And I love the twinkle in his eyes. Here's a man with loads of charm, wit and a supreme sense of humor. Couple that with being a man who's willing to share his expertise on ALL things magickal and that's someone I wouldn't mind spending time with. In some decks I've seen, the Magician seems unapproachable. Not so in Robin's deck. Full of mystery...yes. But mysteries that can be attainable. I like that Robin's key word for this card is "creativity." This is not stagnant information that the Magician is willing to teach, but information that bursts with life in all its possibilities. He has a handle on the four elements, the conscious and the unconscious mind and understands the "now" as well as the past and future. Wow! Very powerful!! Makes me want to jump off my chair and DO SOMETHING positive and life-changing RIGHT NOW!

May 8, 2007 ~ The High Priestess (2)
Whenever I encounter Robin's rendition of the High Priestess, calm settles over me. The colors in the card are mysterious, peaceful and soothing. And I'm someone who walks into walls on or near full moons, so that's saying a lot! Her beautiful eyes have a way of settling me and making me stop to listen.

The truly lovely High Priestess, young as she is shown, has deep wisdom within her. It reminds me that old age does not necessarily mean wisdom and a young age does not necessarily mean lack thereof. Not only does she hold the secrets of the unknown in her right hand, but she's not afraid to share the knowledge she's gleened from the book in her left hand. I also feel she wouldn't be ashamed to check out particular points in the book, should she need a refresher...or even, perhaps, to "say it in a different way," should the person she's speaking to need clarification.

A Morning Reiki Healing And Reading

Today I received the bright blessing of a distance Reiki healing and reading from friend, Patti. Here's what Patti wrote:

Jenny,
When sending your Reiki your name "Spinning Jenny" kept coming forward, not just your name.

First thing that came through was a stiffness in your hips. I started at your head, and your hips came to the forefront. So, energy was sent there first!

When I was allowed to go back to your head, the message came across that your head is full. That's it. Full. I know your head is full of new ideas and plans.

You do come across as balanced and full of love.

Something interesting appeared - it was as if your sacral chakra exploded! I interpret that you are full of fire, and ready to move on to your new passions.

Can hardly wait to see your new book!

Love,
Patti


Here's how I responded back to Patti:

Hi Patti,
Thank you SO MUCH for the Reiki healing and reading. All of it made sense to me. I have been stiff in me ol' joints, hips included. Like you, I generally thumb my nose at these aches, but this morning I "noted" their insistence.

And as for a "full head"...well, can't deny that...I tend to push the poor thing to its limits! I've been thinking I want to start a business called "Spinning Spider Jenny," focusing in on Tarot bags and the like. So "Spinning Jenny" coming to you makes full sense...reclaiming the fiber arts in a personal way after working on the book for 4+ years. Then, there's the good news that the book lay out is going full speed ahead. And yes, enthusiasm is my middle name, coupled well with passion, so hence the sacral chakra explosion...oh that, and some particularly nice *passion* with my piano man after he came back from gigging in Ohio. And let's add that I'm taking my first class at Lily Dale in close to a week's time.

Thank YOU for my healing AND reading!!!!! I'm so glad we have met, Patti.

Hugs,
Jenny


Thank you, Patti. You're a real peach!

I will list the first names of the first five people who respond to this offer on this post. Once the five people are listed, that's it for the FREE readings for that particular month. I'll repost this offer at the beginning of each month and the process will begin again. One free reading per year, per individual, please. However, do tell your friends and family about the offer.
