Hello amazing, beautiful, wonderful people of the internet. I hope you are all doing well and living your best life during this time.
I feel like I need to do a lil housekeeping post to explain how I work and the ways in which I choose to work. This is not only helpful for me to put out into the world to share my thoughts, but it’s also for anyone who is interested in working with me or reads this blog. I want us all to be on the same page.
So let’s jump into it.
This Work is Fluid
I goes without saying that this work is so incredibly personal and fluid. You will meet readers, astrologers, yoga teachers, crystal collectors and everyone else in this world who think differently than you. And with those different mindsets comes different options. Remember we are all on different journeys and we all see things that others don’t. And that’s absolutely beautiful. It colors the world in the most amazing way.
In saying that, there is no right and wrong way to do this work or any type of work for that matter. I mean we obviously don’t want to potentially hurt someone in the process of our work, but as long as our overarching value of saving space and helping people to heal is in alignment, then we’re on the right track.
Not every reader is for you.
Not every astrology is for you.
Not every yoga teacher is for you.
Not every person is for you.
And that’s okay. I don’t take it personally if what I do isn’t your jam. Be true to who you are and if you’re getting a little internal message to not work with me, trust that.
I am here to create a sacred space with you — a space without judgment. Feel free to join me whenever, if ever you want.
Chatting it Out
Before working with anyone I want to open the door for us to connect and have a conversation.
I want to know your expectations, the places you want to expand and the boundaries you have. This work is so incredibly personal and deep, and because of that, I want you to feel as comfortable as possible. It’s my job to her you and respect where you’re at.
It's through this initial conversation that I am able to reiterate how I work and the process in which I am able to help. And during this time I also want to remind you that you have free will. Take what you want and leave the rest.
If I give you some advice that you are resistant to, that’s completely your choice. You have free will to do whatever you want. Trust how you are feeling.
When I do a tarot reading you will find that I don’t gender the tarot. I choose to leave the idea of gender open and fluid because not everyone identifies as male or female. I might identify cards as having masculine or female energies but again, I’m not tying it to gender anything or anyone.
My goal in not gendering the tarot is to help make my client feel as comfortable as they can be with their experience during this reading. I don’t live my life with the mindset of everything being linear, so why would I introduce that into my tarot practice? I wouldn’t. That leads me to say when I pull a card I will identify it by stating “they/ them.”
Stereotypes are a social construct and I say to hell with that. We’re all about inclusivity around here.
Also, when we sit down and do a tarot session I am here to tap into your energy and your energy only. I may feel inclined to say something about a lover, friend, family member, coworker, etc., but my ultimate focus is on you.
If you come to me wanting to know how someone feels about you or anything related to another person’s energy, that isn’t in alignment with what I do. I’m sorry to say, but that’s my truth. I am here to assist you. You are the focus during our time together.
Finally, the guidance or energies I tap into when giving you in your reading reflect the trajectory you are currently on. Life changes, we make choices, we learn from the past and we grow. All of these can change the trajectory of your life. Something may resonate during the reading and a few hours later it can be the exact opposite. This is the beauty of life and free will my friends.
When I teach yoga I invite my clients to be in the driver seat of a session.
I am here to guide your movement, tweak your body in order to be in alignment and help you feel at ease. I also make it a point to ask about injuries or places where my client does not want to focus on.
Heart and hip openers for example are very personal spaces that can bring up a lot of heavy feelings for people. I want to be mindful of these two spots in particular because we can get into a pose and get a rush of emotion that may flood our system.
I am not here to force people to open in places they don’t want to be opened.
I am not here to push someone into a pose despite their uncomfortability.
I am not here to hurt someone.
I am not here to judge you.
I am here to stretch and work out the places that need a little more love and attention. I want you to step on your mat with an open mind and step off your mat feeling powerful and grounded.
Babbling on the Blog
This site has a blog! Well duh, you found it.
It’s in this space where I will share my thoughts, knowledge and experiences with you. It is here where I proudly state I am not perfect. Mistakes will be made and spelling errors will 100% happen. So please roll with me on those.
This is me telling you that I do not have all the answers in the world. I am not going to have the same options as other people. I may have the same values as others, but we are not the same by any means. We all work differently and I fully embrace that part of this beautiful work.
I will give credit where credit is due and I will link to sites and sources often.
I invite you to educate me if you feel something is inaccurate or if you feel like some harm has been done. I am a student of life and am constantly learning on this journey just like you. I appreciate your patience and your kind-hearted nudges.
Thank you so much for your time and understanding. If anyone has any questions or comments please feel free to reach out.
I look forward to working with you.
