Daily Tarot Reading 1st January 2018

Welcome to Sandy’s Daily Readings. Each month I will change the deck of cards to a new deck. I will give you a daily reading each week. The first deck of cards I will be using is The Rider Waite Deck.

Method

My method of choosing the cards is that first I shuffle while focusing on the day in question. Eg, shuffling and focusing on the 1st January 2018. Once done, I will then count the days of the month out. For today I have counted the first card for the 1st January, this is then laid down face up. Then I will count for the month number. For this month, I have counted the next card (as in the first card) for the 1st month of the year. This is then laid out face up. Then finally I will count the cards for the number of years this century. This year is 18. I will lay the 18th card face up in the three card spread.

So, without further delay, here are the cards for

Today’s Reading

  1. IX Swords. Severe anxiety today appears to upset the equilibrium of the energies for the first day of the new year. Well, it is a 9 year after all. Let’s hope this doesn’t set the tone for the rest of the year.
  2. Ace of Cups is now getting away from the downside and showing strength from within. Cups represent the family life and love. Strong emotions for the second card, lending support for the home life. Keep your family issues close to you.
  3. IV Wands always gives me a good feeling of strength and stability. A kind of balance is showing for the day. Work is neither too hard, nor too easy. Yet just right.

Overall, as the day begins with anxiety, emotions for the home life come through for the month. Work and stability will rule the year with more balance.

House Cleansing – how important is it really?

Today I travelled to a client’s home to do some house cleansing. I realised on the way that few people understand the importance of this task. Just as a house can become dusty from wind blowing into the house through open windows, vents etc…so it can be dusty from spirits or entities floating in from the outside through a window, or vent, or even through the front door. While most spiritual visits can be quite calm, and uneventful, some, as in this client’s spiritual visit, can be quite upsetting as well as disrupting to the entire family unit, including pets.

The usual method is to use White Sage as a smudge to cleanse the entire house from top to bottom.

How to cleanse any home or workspace removing negative entities and energies

Regarding the smudge ceremony, remember that no matter the details of your actions, God knows what you are trying to do, and in the end you can’t do it wrong, there is no wrong, God and the Master Spirit guides in the world unseen, will understand your actions and bless your efforts.

Well first of all, I use sage or sage with sweet grass. I pick a time when I’m not likely to be interrupted, and also pick some appropriate music to play. Not important if it’s not possible.
Then I say a prayer asking God and my spirit guides to be with me and guide my actions. Personally I use the “Light Invocation” by Dael Walker and repeat it three times as he suggested.

“I invoke the light of the God within I am a clear and perfect channel Light is my guide”

The smudge stick is sometimes hard to keep smouldering so when you first light it, blow out the flame after it gets going and then blow into the smouldering embers to really let it take hold or else it might burn out. If it does burn out, just re-light it again and keep going.

After I get the stick smouldering, I ask the smoke be blessed and that it will trap any and all negative entities and energies. The first thing I smudge is myself starting with the bottoms of my feet and then working the smoke up around my body and around my head and crown chakra.

After that is done I start at a doorway and direct the smoke completely around the doorframe, you will repeat this in every room starting at the entry doorway to each room and the front and back or side doors to the apartment or house.

After the doorways just go around the room to the four corners and then down the middle with a circular motion.

Don’t forget to open closet doors and drawers to chests and cabinets also before you begin. The mental image is as if you were about to fumigate the property for bugs, the idea is to let the smudge smoke get into and around everything within the home or office. Instead of getting rid of bugs, you are getting rid of negative entities and energies.

When you have completed every room, and then say another prayer, thanking God and your spirit guides for help and blessings asking that all the smoke carry away all negative entities and energies out away from your home or office.

Open as many windows and doors as is practical to allow the smoke to be purged from the interior and fresh air and chi to flow back into your living or work space. The idea is the smoke traps the unwanted stuff and then you let it out through the windows and open doors.

I always burn some good smelling incense at the beginning of the ceremony to help cover the pot-like smelling sage.

If possible I also light a few candles and create a makeshift alter with the candles and a few crystals of what ever you might have before I begin, to help act as centre place for my prayers and smudge lighting.

To help direct the smoke into drawers and closets, you can either use a feather if you have one or just use your hand in a fanning motion.

One other practical matter, sometimes smouldering pieces of ash from the sage or string the binds the sage will tend to drop to the floor so to prevent burn spots on your floor, it might be best to try and use a paper plate or something to catch the ash during the smudging.

Another alternative to a smudge “stick” bundle would be to burn loose sage in a dish or bowl, (try a metal or shell bowl / dish, which would prevent the smouldering ash problem.

This ceremony does tend to drain the person doing it, so allow so rest time for afterward. You may notice the difference of energy right away or especially the next day, as will visitors to your home or work space.

One last item, should you have any crystals or rocks in your space, you may want to raise their vibration after the smudging by ringing a bell, or ringing a brass bowl near where they sit. Finally put out the smudge and after closing the windows and doors sit down and relax for a while and begin to enjoy your cleansed environment.

You might want to redo the smudge ceremony at least every 6 months, or more often, if you feel the need. You might want to try and time the smudging to a “new moon” or at the change of seasons.

Remember God and your spirit guides understand what you are trying to do, so THERE IS NO WRONG WAY to do it. You may want to include some of your favourite readings, or do this with a loved one. Basically that’s it, good luck and be well.

Good luck and Bright Blessings

Spiritual Treatments

We love to be pampered, to feel relaxed, and taken care of. Who doesn’t?

Here, at Spiritual Beauty it is considered a necessity. One of those acts which is deserved of tender loving care, commonly known as tlc. So when you come to see us, we sit you down in a nice comfortable chair, put your feet up, so that you can lay back and relax.

We discuss what it is that you are looking for – what kind of treatment would you prefer for the day. Then, we slip on some gentle meditation background music and allow you to relax even more.

Perhaps you would like a healing Reiki treatment for something specific. Or an all over Reiki treatment for the loving joy of feeling the energy come from without to within.

Why not come and relax to a soothing hand and foot ex-foliation scrub and balm. Allow your senses to unwind, with gentle massage, luxuriating in a peaceful atmosphere.

It is all up to you – to stay as you are, or to come for a pick me up. Sorry, these pampering treatments cannot be given over the phone, or internet. However we do offer distant healing as well.
