This has been a busy couple of months for me and for Tarot of Empowerment. I’ve been traveling a lot, enjoying Europe and visiting our nephew in Oregon. In the meantime, Gordana and I are planning the Bellingham Tarot of Empowerment publishing party on June 12 from 5:30 to 8:00. See details below and please join us.
Life is very precious. Recently a 30 year old member of our family passed away after a courageous battle with cancer that was discovered shortly after the birth of their only child. Another friend recently had a stroke and he and his wife are facing recovery with great spirit. A third friend lost her father.
Each of us faces crises in our lives and during these times it’s important to call upon the support, love and healing energy from others. At the same time, as a support person, it’s important to be patient and respond in a way that respects the process of the person who needs your help. Below is a reading to help guide you.
I’ve included an article about developing your intuition. Learn to distinguish between the voice that is your true self and the voice of fear. Practice and you will be amazed. Pay attention to what your intuition is saying, and to the hesitation you have in following the advice of the intuition.

The best way to develop intuition is to feel it, rather than analyze or read about it. Let me give you an exercise: Close your eyes and ask your guides/angels/personal beings for help. Acknowledge that you might not even know if they are there (if you aren’t sure they are there). Ask them to teach you how to connect with them, which will connect you to your intuition. Ask them to play with you. Relax and see if you feel their presence.
The next step is to pay attention. How many times has someone called and you said, “I was just thinking about you.” That was your intuition telling you that you were going to soon be connected to that person.
Ask for parking near where you are going and when the spot comes up, thank your angels. Practice this for a week and let me know how this goes.
Another thing. Pay attention to the little itty bitty voice in your head that says, “hmm don’t think that’s a good idea,” or “this may have further consequences down the road.” Every poor business decision I’ve made can be directly tracked back to ignoring the little voice.
How do I support my friend?
Here is a layout to answer the question, “How can I best support my friend during this challenging time?” Here are cards that I got in this sample reading.
Card 1 [What card describes the situation?] Chaos
Card 2 [What is my gift to give this person?] Determination
Card 3 [How do I give this gift?] Star
Card 4 [What do I NOT suggest to this person?] Advisor
Card 5 [What action may I suggest for him?] Temperance
The situation I did the reading for is certainly chaotic so this card is just right.
My gift to my friend, in this situation, is to help him focus and set out new goals based on the current situation.
The way to help my friend focus is by showing him the potential of who he is and what he is capable of achieving at the end of the chaos.
The cards tell me to NOT suggest he see a counselor at this time. He is still in the middle of emotional chaos and although counseling may seem appropriate, it is not right for him at this time.
What I can suggest to him is to wait until he finds his own equilibrium before getting more input from a counselor, which actually fits his circumstances perfectly.
This reading was different than what I thought I would do to help, and it gave me a different perspective and approach to the issue. I followed the suggestion in the reading which turned out to be very helpful for my friend.
