Auntie D Discusses: Authority, Intuition, and the Dopamine Rush

I spend more time than I should on Twitter. For someone who grew up with no neighbors, no internet, and no cable TV, the rush of social media is just a miracle. If you'd told 13-year-old (or 18-year-old or 25-year-old) me I'd be able to communicate almost instantaneously with people around the world, that I'd … Continue reading Auntie D Discusses: Authority, Intuition, and the Dopamine Rush

Everyday Tarot: How Do You Know What the Cards Mean?

One of the questions I get so often from new or non-readers is “How do you know what the cards mean when you do a reading?” It really does baffle a lot of people, myself included, that 78 fairly generic pieces of decorated cardboard can provide such intuitive and often highly accurate information. I don’t … Continue reading Everyday Tarot: How Do You Know What the Cards Mean?

Intuition Reboot for Tarot Readers

As we work towards expanding and improving our reading skills, there's one phrase that rears its head over and over again--use your intuition. Wanna relax and allow the interpretations to flow without overanalyzing? Use your intuition. Wanna open yourself to insights and understanding beyond the scope of your own limited experience? Use your intuition! That's … Continue reading Intuition Reboot for Tarot Readers

Everyday Mysticism: Peace, Love, and Action

  I write a lot about creativity, empowerment, and agency in this blog. A few weeks ago, I wrote a post called Creative (Building) Blocks reminding readers that it's better to put a few words on a page than no words at all. With everything going on in the world, I'm realizing it's not enough … Continue reading Everyday Mysticism: Peace, Love, and Action

Everyday Mysticism: Surfing through Hurricanes

I've had more than my share of stressful jobs. In fact, my three year stint as a customer service rep for a very prominent credit card company had me on six weeks' mental health leave before I finally quit for good. At another job, I was so efficient that the boss "honored" me by shifting … Continue reading Everyday Mysticism: Surfing through Hurricanes

Everyday Mysticism: Creative (Building) Blocks

I keep a notebook in my purse. It's one of the fancy Target ones--pink chevrons, laminated covers, wide-lined pages. I have nice pen hooked into the loops, and inside there are pages of ideas for blog posts. This week, not one of them worked for me. I've been writing regularly in one form or another since the … Continue reading Everyday Mysticism: Creative (Building) Blocks

Everyday Mysticism: The Dreaded Red X

If you believe neuroscientist David Eagleman, everything we can see, feel, smell, hear, and taste is created within our brains. That sandwich on your desk? Neurons firing. Shiny new car? Bam--neurons. Each of us creates our experience of reality individually using data acquired through our own unique experiences. In fact, the deeper science digs into the … Continue reading Everyday Mysticism: The Dreaded Red X

Everyday Mysticism: Dismantling the Ignore Button

Here at Two Ladies Tarot, we pride ourselves on many things. Being Tech Forward is not on that list. A couple of months ago, we became a two-cell family--both are prepaid Tracfones from Family Dollar. Kat is the proud owner of our first "smart" phone, while I'm still rocking my "Kirk-to-Enterprise" flip phone. My phone … Continue reading Everyday Mysticism: Dismantling the Ignore Button

Everyday Mysticism: Expanding Your Palate

You may have noticed this post is a day late. I take full responsibility for that. Sometimes, in the hustle of life, our best intentions get knocked slightly off course. For me, the past few weeks have been a grueling and difficult time, a roller-coaster between spectacular lows and mind-blowing highs. To be honest, I … Continue reading Everyday Mysticism: Expanding Your Palate

Everyday Mysticism: The Evolution of Hope

One common type of feedback we get when Kat and I do readings for people is that we have given the client hope. Something in our readings, something in the message contained in the cards, has opened up a path for the client, given them tools and inspiration to keep moving forward In other words, … Continue reading Everyday Mysticism: The Evolution of Hope
