After graduating from the University of Salford (UK) in 1989, I worked in various positions as a self-employed sales person and ended up as one of the top sales reps in a large national window and conservatory company, where I worked for 6 ½ years.
I began to apply simple relaxation techniques before my sales calls and found this had a marked increase in sales. I became fascinated by the ideas of using my mind to help create success. I also spent a lot of time teaching, training and inspiring others, both in the field and in classroom situations.
I found that the more I could relax and visualise my ideal outcome, the more successful I became. As a successful female in a highly male dominated industry I was on the receiving end of a lot of jealousy and highly destructive energies. Protecting my energies was one of the first things I learnt and now teach others to do.
This led to my interest in astrology, the power of names and numbers as well as a keen interest in energy healing and the awesome power of our thoughts in creating our lives.
In my early 20s I met a lady who read the tarot cards. I found her amazingly accurate and attended one of her courses. I originally started to read as a way of generating an income when my first child was born, so I did not have to go back to work.
Business grew steadily and then I hit some major challenges, which I did not have the knowledge or life experience to deal with. I began to suddenly get sore throats and could not speak. I now understand that to be blockages in my throat chakra, which is about communication (not surprisingly medical drugs had no effect whatsoever!)
I found that I so desperately wanted to help people to have happy and fulfilled lives, that I found myself almost taking responsibility for their lives and accepting the blame for things going wrong in their lives.
I also found it very difficult to say No to people and would end up having conversations very late at night or I would try to find for people what they wanted to see.
Due to a combination of things, I put my cards to one side and went “back to work” or at least into selling double glazing.
In April 2006, our family went through a life-changing crisis and I found myself drawn back to my trusty tarot cards. To my surprise my psychic and intuitive abilities were vastly greater than they had ever been before.
I used the cards to see where the whole matter was going, what was going on in the minds of the people who had brought the action against us and what they were likely to do next. Whilst there was little we could do to change any of it, we could choose how we reacted.
The cards were a fantastic tool for identifying what needed healing in the whole situation.
I also had 13 years intense life experiences behind me, as well as several years study in personal development and human excellence. This enabled me to offer readings which are more coaching in nature and firmly focused on the actions the client can take for themselves to move themselves forward.
Every time a challenge comes along, I turn to my Tarot cards to help me to tap into my Intuition and to connect the Universal energies, in order to provide answers and guidance.
I have been reading Tarot cards for over 16 years, and have used them to help people to empower themselves to move forward in their lives. I learnt how to read the Tarot cards and found that my natural intuitive abilities increased enormously.
I now use that as the basis to see and feel the energies going on around someone in their life or their business, and can then help you to move swiftly through that, so you can create the future you desire. The Tarot is a fantastic tool to help you to connect to your own intuition and creativity and also to the Universal energies that are around us.
We shape our own lives and have the choice of the thoughts we think and the actions we take. The tarot can help us to tap into our intuition and our internal guidance system and help us to make the most empowering decisions for us at the time.
My Book “Develop Your Intuition Through Tarot” came out of my 6 week offline, where I wanted to give my students and clients tools to quickly and easily understand and read the cards.
The idea was to create something practical and useable that gave beginners all the information they needed to get started on their own journey with the Tarot and to be able to proficiently read Tarot cards from themselves, using the pictures, colours and symbols as a springboard.
