Fly Free, T-Bird! We love you.

David and I just learned that our dear friend, Tim Martin, passed away yesterday. He was and is a beautiful soul and will be deeply missed. I mentioned him after the first of our moves to Kalamazoo: “Thanks again to our superhero friend Tim, aka T-Bird, for all the above and beyond help this weekend.” “Above and beyond” was right.

Tim was not afraid of Death. We spoke of it often, not in a morbid way, but in a natural cycles, Faery Realm, and depth psychology way. On Wednesday he texted me: “Interesting that my first memory is of my brother and I looking for snakes in a brush pile considering how my whole life can be seen as a chthonic journey; realized this this morning on the drive in”

I usually get a heads up when someone close to me is about to pass — sometimes months ahead of time with a 24- to 48-hour window of time when they’ll pass. I’ve had heads up about clients’ relatives I’ve never met, my grandparents’ deaths, my father’s death, death date of a friend’s husband and then sensed her own death. I don’t share this information, because you never truly know, and also I don’t want to give anyone any self-fulfilling prophecies.

But Tim’s passing came as a shock. As his best friends, we are deeply grieving the loss.

We knew he was going through a massive shift, and he sensed it would occur before Winter Solstice. Looking through texts and emails, there were many signs that his liberation might be a bit more dramatic than anyone, including Tim, anticipated.

Tim was a very, very good friend. A huge orb of love in an aching world. He wrote gorgeous poetry and was a voracious reader, always learning, always seeking truth. I used to call him Tim Bombadil after Tolkien’s character, Tom, my favorite from Lord of the Rings. He’s the only Cancer male I’ve ever managed to stay friends with, a 7/7 baby, magical to the core. He loved the Earth as his Mother, made beautiful altars and photographs, offered whiskey to faeries, and his daily communing with Nature surpassed most people’s once-in-a-lifetime peak mystical experience. We texted so often I needed to delete the text streams every six weeks to free up memory on my phone. Now I wish I’d kept them all.

His daughter Eimhear (“ever”) was the light of his life, and we send so much love to her and her family right now.

In a recent text, Tim told me he wanted to be reincarnated as a Nac Mac Feegle. He had nagged me into reading “The Wee Free Men” and then got me hooked on Terry Pratchett’s Tiffany Aching series. In gathering some poems and recent words for his ex-wife and daughter, I felt led to look up this quote about Granny Weatherwax, which, if you knew Tim as we do, you’d find so clearly applies to him, too, in his sacred grove.

And yes, Tim had a truly sacred grove, which we were blessed to enter with him on more than one occasion:

“Tiffany thought of the little spot in the woods where Granny Weatherwax lay. Remembered.

And knew that You had been right. Granny Weatherwax was indeed here. And there. She was, in fact, and always would be, everywhere.”
Terry Pratchett, The Shepherd’s Crown

As David said in a 3-way text stream with Tim on Friday, “Fly, T-Bird, fly!”

We love you, Tim. Nice to have such a brilliant ally on the Otherside, but we will miss your laugh, your constantly changing ideas, and your bear hugs. We’ll miss your great big heart that overworked itself all these years. Now you can love and be loved with no limitations.

Blessed Be, my friend. You were and are such a blessing in our lives.

Gift Certificates and December 2017 Special

December brings the return of Gift Certificates, as well as a new “Holiday Empath and Meaning Session,” which seems much needed right now. Details below.

IMG_1582

GIFT CERTIFICATES AND DECEMBER 2017 SPECIAL:

Gift Certificates:

Each year, people ask if they can gift a session to a loved one. I like to offer a discount to honor the love and care behind this gift. Certificates purchased in 2017 will remain valid through December 31, 2018. Since people always ask me this: no, you may not purchase a gift certificate for yourself. You can, however, request someone else get you a gift certificate. 😉 When you contact me to order a gift certificate, please let me now the name of the person you’re gifting, as well as any details you’d like me to include on the certificate. I’ll create and email you a personalized PDF, which you can email or print out for your loved one.

2017 gift certificates cover any of my services at $99/half hour instead of the usual rate of $133/half hour. 

(If you’d like to offer your loved one a Tarot reading, I can also turn the $44 November Tarot Special into a gift certificate, as long as you purchase that one by November 30th.)

Please contact me by December 31, 2017 to create your half-hour session, custom created gift certificate(s). If you’d like your certificate ready by a particular date, please allow at least a 48-hour turnaround.

 

Holiday Empath and Meaning Session

This is a new offering, specially designed for sensitive souls who find the frenzied holiday season overwhelming or uncomfortably devoid of meaning. I will tailor this session to your needs. We can cover:

  • Energy protection strategies to help you stay balanced and serene
  • Soul connections or past life bleedthrough influencing family dynamics
  • How to create your own deeply meaningful celebrations
  • Finding your Soul’s “Reason for the Season”
  • Strategies for travel, work parties, house guests and/or animal care
  • Whatever other holiday related concerns you have

The Holiday Empath and Meaning Session covers 40 minutes for $133. Offer valid through December 31, 2017. Please contact me to sign up.

 

 

November 2017 Specials

NOVEMBER 2017 SPECIALS

By popular request, this month brings back $44 tarot readings. The second November Special stems from the first. Although the cards can sometimes provide very general information about health, they’re no substitute for a Medical Intuitive Reading, which uses an entirely different process on my end. I love tarot, but it does not lend itself to every type of question. Since so many people request medical intuitive support, I decided to run a second November Special just for that. Please read each description, so you can determine which special makes sense for you at this time.

$44 Tarot Readings

Half hour tarot readings at 20% off the usual rate. Tarot readings offer an energetic check-in, the chance to ask questions about pending decisions or intentions, and represent a fun, yet powerful way to gain perspective on relationships and challenges.

Tarot readings are particularly good for people who don’t know what kinds of questions to ask me; they just want some kind of guidance because they feel unsure of what’s coming or what to focus upon. Tarot also seems to benefit those people who have exceptionally good things coming their way, yet wonder if I might be “padding the reading” or “just saying what they want to hear.” The cards don’t lie. (Neither do I – but the cards seem an even more objective medium for delivering good news.)

Please contact me if you’d like to sign up for this special. Offer valid if prepaid on or before November 30, 2017.

$133 Medical Intuitive Readings

Medical Intuition is the ability to access information about physical, mental, emotional and spiritual health through “reading” the energy field around the body. A Medical Intuitive Session decodes the message(s) from soul to body into language your conscious mind can understand and begin to address. Although I explore many different levels of the healing process, I do not (and legally cannot) diagnose or prescribe. Medical Intuitive Readings are meant to augment, not replace traditional medical treatment.

Medical Intuitive Readings purchased on or before November 30, 2017, will be discounted to $133 per 40-minute session. (Save $44 off the regular price.) Please contact me to sign up.

 

Timothy Glenn ~ 2017: Welcome to the Twilight Zone

It’s not New Year’s Day, but it’s my birthday, so a new year of sorts. At long last, I present to you my dear friend, astrologer and numerologist, Timothy Glenn’s 2017 report. I find this one so interesting, as I’ve been paying particular attention to the King of Cups portal door I painted in 2010, which, though relegated to the laundry room/back entryway in our current house, wants to take much more center stage in the new living room alongside the Freya and Frigga door.
I’ve had this King of Cups door and its 37 “address” on the brain for weeks now, as I mentally paint, re-floor and feng shui the new space we settle on on Friday.  It hadn’t occurred to me that 2017 is the 37, King of Cups year, but that sure makes sense, given all the symbolism in our own lives and that playing out in the larger streams of energy. He even contextualizes some of the Dark Night of the Soul references I’ve posted the past little while. In any case, here’s Tim, sharing his wisdom nearly five months late and right on time!
2017: Welcome to the Twilight Zone

by Timothy Glenn

On New Year’s day, I sat down to write the traditional article for the year, typed out the foregoing title, and then sat there looking ahead with the usual tools: intuition, research, remote viewing, numerology and astrology. Oh, dear. How could anyone distill an ocean of possibilities into a single article? It seemed the title said enough, but why publish a title without an article?

In short, I let it slide. When people have asked where the New Year’s article was, I have agreed to go ahead and write it…but then would let it slide again. But finally, here goes.

Everyplace Is a Myth Somewhere Else

For several years, more and more people have been saying the equivalent of: “Toto, I have a feeling we’re not in Kansas anymore.”

Now people are wondering if Kansas ever existed. Maybe it was another lie, another illusion, another fable, another false memory implanted in us by The Matrix. After all, we have been swimming in a ubiquitous ocean of deception throughout our lifetimes.

By the end of 2017, Kansas may be relegated to the realm of ancient mythological fantasy lands. This is the year upon which the planetary transformation pivots.

We have reached a major crossroads on our travels through the wilderness of the Cosmic Matrix. The wooden signposts point in various directions; Death 13 miles, Doom 57 miles, Destruction 16 miles, Eternal Life 8 feet, Stagnation 0 inches, Kansas 81 parsecs.

2017 = 2 + 0 + 1 + 7 = 10 = 1 + 0 = 1

Yes, it’s a 1 year. Anything outmoded that we failed to let go of during the 9 cycle of 2016 will most likely slap us in the face and kick us in the shins until we awaken enough to transcend it. Attachments to political ideologies – more like idiotologies – are plaguing a considerable portion of the planet’s population. Evidently they missed the 2016 memo.

Any 1 cycle ushers in opportunities for newness. It favors the bold, the adventurous, the curious, and anyone who wants to explore and experiment. 2017 will offer initiation into a markedly different reality for anyone with the courage to embrace it.

2017 = 20 + 17 = 37

37 (the King of Cups in the tarot deck) deserves a treatise of its own. It holds the keys to the entire realm of feeling. The key to our ascension (or transcendence or quantum leap or whatever you want to call it) can be found in our hearts.

The key to success with the 37 is to approach life from a calm and loving heart. Lots of people do well with the loving part of that equation, but what about the calm? There isn’t much room here for freaking out, bitching or whining. Trump Derangement Syndrome? The Outrage Culture? Good luck with that.

Giving our power away to external forces won’t help. Even volcanoes, earthquakes and tsunamis are external forces. Really, how ready are we to transcend eons of Matrix conditioning and programming? We have wallowed through ages of seeing ourselves as what Proterrian calls “pathetic little snotlings from 3D Planet Earth”, and nothing more. Had enough yet?

The Dark Night of the Soul

My interpretations of numerology and tarot stem from the inner circles of Pythagorean teachings, not from later musings, and certainly not from the distorted interpretations of the illumi-naughty cabal.

According to Pythagoras, two numbers can indicate what Saint John of the Cross came to call the Dark Night of the Soul. By sheerest coincidence, those two numbers are 20 and 17.

Carl Gustav Jung recommended that we integrate the shadow. All around us, we see unresolved issues oozing or erupting out of people, and the planetary transmutation process will amplify this phenomenon as everything intensifies throughout the year. Those who have done shadow work will be glad they did.

How the Cards Fall

Card 20 in the tarot deck is usually misnamed Judgment. The more traditional decks show Archangel Gabriel sounding the trumpet from heaven, while humans rise from graves below. It symbolizes the call from the darkness into the light; not being called on a celestial carpet.

The Robin Wood Tarot pictures it as the phoenix rising from the ashes. Either way, ascendance is occurring. The Shapeshifter Tarot calls card 20 Transcendence, and wings are a prominent feature in all these depictions.

If you are going to be called from the darkness into the light, where are you going to be first? The darkness.

Card 17 is the Star, which is a point of light in the darkness. In order to become the Star, we first have to take a journey through the darkness. To Pythagoras, 17 represented empowerment through enlightenment. We only seek enlightenment if we find ourselves in the dark.

No matter how the cards fall, we can rise above it all.

See You in September

We have a lot going on in the skies, including what some would call “signs in the heavens”. This is a time of convergence and divergence of worlds, solar systems, dimensions, timelines, universes and whatever else. You might be feeling that “something’s gotta give”, and you’re right.

We can anticipate reaching a massive crescendo in September of this year. Exactly how things will fall out before, during and after September will be up to us to determine. “All the world’s a stage, and all the men and women merely players”…really? Perhaps this is improvisational theatre, and we are all playwrights and directors as well.

We’re All Cracked

By way of analogy, we have lived our alleged reality inside an egg. We have built up enough pressure to crack the eggshell, and we definitely feel the pressure. Emergence looms as imminent.
By the end of 2017, the perceptive among us will see the Matrix illusion around us crack as though the sky were breaking apart. We will physically glimpse beyond the veil that has kept us shrouded. We will realize that through those cracks we are looking at the natural universe. The sensitive among us will hear, feel and otherwise sense it calling us home.

Someday, we will look back and say that 2017 was the year that the adventure truly began.

December 2016 Specials

People have already been asking about these, so here they are:

DECEMBER 2016 SPECIALS

Extra Support For You:

$77 Past Life Readings

All that decking the halls and gathering of friends and family can sometimes feel a little less than jolly. For those of you who find this time of year stressful due to old family dynamics or strained relationships, I’m offering a discount and shorter than usual Past Life Readings. (Normally $175 for an hour, this special offers a half hour Past Life Reading for $77.)

Over the years, I’ve found Past Life Readings to be the most transformative sessions about relationships. Locating the soul connections in their larger context helps make sense of nagging concerns or old wounds, opening possibilities for forgiveness and ease. (If you’re not sure of a past life connection, here are 5 common signs.) Sessions must be prepaid by 12/31/16; however, they can be redeemed whenever you feel you need extra insight into relationship challenges.

GIFT CERTIFICATES

Each year, clients ask me how they might gift their friends and family members some time with me. I’ve found that my clients are intuitive enough to know if someone is ready for and will find these services of value, so I’ve provided two options, which you can mix and match for as many recipients as you’d like. (The only criterion is that you cannot purchase a gift certificate for yourself –but you can certainly request one!)

$99 Gift Certificates

For those of you wishing to gift someone with a Medical Intuitive Session, Soul Reading, Past Life Reading, and/or Intuitive Coaching Session, this $99 Gift Certificate covers a 45-minute session in person, or by phone or Yahoo Instant Messenger. Valid only as a gift for someone else. Prepaid on or before 12/31/16, Gift Certificates are valid through 2017 and include a customized PDF that can be emailed or printed out for the recipient. Please contact me to make arrangements.

A Touch of Tarot Gift Certificate

This is a $33 tarot option that lets you gift 20 minutes to a friend or loved one. Sessions occur by phone and include an emailed or texted photo of the spread(s) for easy following along. Valid only as a gift for someone else. Prepaid on or before 12/31/16, Gift Certificates are valid through 2017 and include a customized PDF that can be emailed or printed out for the recipient. Please contact me to make arrangements.

 

September 2016 Specials

SEPTEMBER 2016 SPECIALS

I’ve been having so many 44, 444 and 144 synchronicities that it’s time to resurrect the $44 Tarot Special. I’m also feeling led to offer Intuitive Life Path Assessments for $144 this month. Please see details below:

$44 Tarot Readings

Half hour tarot readings at 20% off the usual rate. Tarot readings offer an energetic check-in, the chance to ask questions about pending decisions or intentions, and represent a fun, yet powerful way to gain new perspective on relationships and challenges.

Tarot readings are particularly good for people who don’t know what kinds of questions to ask me; they just want some kind of guidance because they feel unsure of what’s coming or what to focus upon. Tarot also seems to benefit those people who have exceptionally good things coming their way, yet wonder if I might be “padding the reading” or “just saying what they want to hear.” The cards don’t lie. (Neither do I – but the cards seem that much more objective a medium for delivering good news.)

Please contact me if you’d like to sign up for this special. Offer valid if prepaid on or before September 30, 2016.

 

$144 Intuitive Life Path Assessments

Intuitive Life Path Assessments let you know where you’re headed and where you’ve been on your soul’s long journey.

(Save $31 off the usual rate.) Please contact me if you’d like to sign up for this special.

“Some people would want to succeed no matter the cost. Angel number 144 is reminding you that there are values which we should hold on to.” *You can see more about the frequency of 144 here and here.
