What is the source of my money blocks? 💶 💷 💵

Money is one of those areas where many of us get blocked: it can seem like no matter how hard we work, how much we try, how thoroughly we learn and study…. nothing shifts and we don’t seem to get anywhere.

We can also have issues with self-worth and asking to be paid for our experience, energy and time; as well as beliefs about whether it, money, is high vibrational or not.

When it comes to money, we have strong feeling about (and around) the subject; possibly deep wounds: and likely our parents, siblings, teachers and peers are influencers too into what we will or will not allow into our lives.

The purpose of this reading is to uncover these blocks, giving you a place from which to grow and move forwards.

The Five of Wands is a card of conflict. In it we see five men, all young, strong and healthy, competing with one another. They should be intent upon a common task, like trying to build a house or a tent, but instead they each have their own idea and goal so their passions are clashing. Individually, they have the potential to be leaders – they are alphas with egos – but there is only space here for one top dog. The ground they are standing on – i.e. our business building landscape – is lush and verdant, rich in resources and relatively healthy bar the occasional arid patch. Yet it is uneven, challenging firm footing. This card tells us, therefore, that it is not a lack of skill or talent; more too much diversity and too many inner individual cooks. In order to be more successful, to manifest more on the wealth front, there needs to be unity in the ranks and a common aim. Work out what the final picture is supposed to be like, live it and breathe it and feel it in your mind, collect all of your inner pieces and persons together to create from a coherent mind. Do this, and what you are working for will be easier to achieve.

Merlina reinforces this message, telling us that the source of our frustration and stagnation is our confusion and indecisiveness. We are too focused on the physicality of things and as such we’re removed from the larger picture. Ask for help from Merlina, your guides, higher and past selves, quantum selves on other planes, friends, family and mentors who can be allies…. and things will align and clarify.

How can I be more successful in my career? 🎡

When it comes to success and career, we all have certain blocks. If we aren’t manifesting in the ways that we desire, chances are it’s because something inside is restricting us. Whether that’s a bad experience in the past, a childhood trauma, lack of direction, motivation, self belief, etc… the result is the same: we flail around treading water; working hard but getting nowhere.

This reading is intended to shine a light on one or many of these blocks in order to start you moving.

The Wheel of Fortune is all about decisions and choices. These are the roads that we can, want to, or are thinking about taking. Which can be a good thing, right?, because we like to have options and possibilities. But when it comes to career and manifesting and achieving financial abundance and success: sometimes less is more; sometimes we need to hone in on something specific instead of being a Jack or Jill of all trades. It’s much easier to do one thing really well than ten things moderately, and that’s what is going on here: you have too many ideas, skills, thoughts and desires, and they are blocking you. Cut through the 🐂 💩 to who you really are at your centre and what you want to do with those skills. Making a decision will set you free.

The Ten of Cups shows you what is possible in your future if you do the work discussed above. It is within you to make a success of this and to achieve all you desire, not just abundance in career, but abundance too in love, and relationships and family. The Ten of Cups is the complete package of everything. Know that this is in your future and it will help fuel you when it comes to breaking free.

How can I help my heart to heal? 🐠

Our heart is one of our most important organs. It’s the organ that keeps us alive and helps us to breathe. Without it, we simply aren’t. It’s not like a kidney, where we can live without one. Or a brain, where a part can be damaged but the rest still functions fine. Or a spleen or appendix, even, where we can do without. Our heart is vital to our existence and we are very much connected to and wrapped up with it.

But our hearts are also our emotional centres and whatever happens to us happens to them. A bereavement, a betrayal, a rejection, a loss… all affect our heart. As does a compliment, a hug, a confession of love. Words and actions can lift, energise, empower and heal, as well as hurt, harm and destroy.

How we treat our hearts, therefore, and how we allow others to treat them, is pretty important if we want to lead healthy, happy, full lives.

We have all suffered heartbreak. We have all experienced harsh words and actions. This isn’t what is important though. It’s what we do afterwards that counts. Emotions themselves aren’t dangerous. There is only danger when we harbour them and refuse, whether consciously or unconsciously, to let them go.

Oceana reminds us that our emotions are like the ocean. She also reminds us that we are all connected to this one huge body of moving, flowing energy, as wide and as vast and as deep as the ocean herself. By tapping into that energy and that water, by sitting still and questioning and then quietly, patiently listening, we can hear what our body and heart want us to know.

Heart communication exercise:

Place one hand on your heart and another on your belly, tuning into your life force. Take your time to feel out the gentle movement, the energetic pulse. Listen and ask yourself what you hear. Look and allow yourself to see. When you feel confident, ask a simple question that you know the answer to and wait for a felt response. For example: Should I make myself a green juice, should I take a walk, should I go to bed earlier tonight than I usually do? Unless you are allergic to certain vegetables, injured and unable to exercise and/or already getting enough sleep,the answer to all of the above should be a yes. Then you ask something that would be a no. Like: should I drink this Coke, should I smoke this cigarette, should I cut off all of my hair? These questions, or similar, will give you a sense of what is yes and no to you energetically. And then you can move on to the real questions, like: is he/she/they good for me, am I in love with him/her/them, should I accept his/her/their proposal, etc? Using this method you can energetically tune into your heart centre and your solar plexus and make better, more loving decisions about your life.

What do I need to know right now? ☁️

To me, gentleness is a soft cushion, a fleece blanket, a warm hot water bottle, a cuddle with my dog. It’s winter tea, raw chocolate, fresh fruit. Gentleness is meditation, yoga and yoga Nidra. Gentleness is satsang, kirtan and classical music. Gentleness is The Gilmore Girls and Friends, and a hundred romcoms…. Gentleness is a friend’s hand on your arm, a smile from a stranger. Butterflies are gentle. Rabbits are gentle. If we are lucky, our inner voice is gentle too.

Gentleness reminds us to act more kindly and to think before we speak. Gentleness is about how we conduct ourselves and how we show up for others. Gentleness is a way of being, a way of seeing, a way of travelling the world. But Gentleness wants us to remember ourselves too, because it’s an inner act as much as it’s an external one. In fact the inside job starts first.

How gentle are you with yourself when something happens?

How do you treat yourself and allow others to treat you?

Gentleness starts at home and we begin with our inner child. When he/she cries, we need to reach out to honour, hold and soothe them. We need to be the best parent and good at holding space. For only in learning how to stand up for and speak on behalf of our inner selves will be be able to see, hear, help and heal the inner selves of those who surround us.

Gentleness is not therefore about being a wimp, but more about being a lioness. Be kind to those who are kind to you, but do not be ungentle inwards. If someone’s behaviour is harmful and out of line, it’s ok to roar.

What do I need to hear right now?🦸🏻‍♀️

Children gaze in wonder at a basket full of kittens, an ice cream parlour counter, a Christmas tree alive with lights. As adults, we might pause to watch a sun set, stoop to admire a newborn baby, stop to taste a new dish in a novel restaurant. Wonder means being touched, tickled, stirred…. by something outside of us. Wonder means magic and enchantment. Wonder is miracles.

But have you ever stopped to wonder why you do what you do, why you think what you think, why you live your life a certain way? Wonder is also examining, investigating and exploring. Wonder is questioning the narrative not just sucking up the story.

The Wonder card asks us to look at the world with fresh eyes, removing the glasses we are wearing that cause us to see it a certain way. “Make up your own mind,” it urges. “See for yourself.”. “Make sure the book you are reading is the book you want to live.”.

Wonder gives us lots to think about; lots to ponder and contemplate.

What is blocking me right now? 🤹🏻‍♀️

It’s natural to experience blocks as we travel through life. Most of us will experience at least one block on any given day. It could be you wake up late, you sleep badly, your water is off and you can’t take a morning shower. It could be your car breaks down, your meeting is rescheduled, you have to cancel dinner to stay late at work. It could be your date doesn’t show up, your boyfriend wants to break up, your husband is unhappy and wants a separation. It could be you ruin your diet, avoid the gym, have an argument with someone close to you. It could be a minor health complaint, or a major one. It could be a PANDEMIC!!!

Blocks take many forms – some easy, some hard, some friendly, some antagonistic, some gentle, some fierce, some barely noticeable, some life altering… What is your biggest block today, and where are you currently getting stuck?

The Page of Wands is a positive and a happy card. The page is a student of life, an innocent child, a foolish (or carefree) adventurer. He has an idea, a desire, and he is unafraid of reaching and working towards it. He is strongly grounded in what he wants and led by his intuition. He is happy to experiment and play in order to get there. He is all about creativity and birthing things.

But is your new idea or project taking up too much space, to the detriment of everything else? Are you dropping the other balls and plates (that you are juggling and spinning) because of it? The thing that is blocking you here is not a bad thing. It’s simply the fact that it’s the only thing that’s getting your attention these days.

The Ten of Wands reinforces this message, showing us a man bent over under a heavy load, warning us that we are attempting to carry too much and are in danger of breaking. The Page is excited and enjoying the journey but he isn’t looking to the future. The Ten has a future image in front of him, mapping out his desire – nice house, good location, financial security, etc. – but he is working so hard to keep up and move forwards that he is missing out on his life in the moment, unable to see what it is all for. One is focussing only on the ‘right now’ to the detriment of the future, and the is other working so hard towards some future goal it’s become concealed in the distance.

Reevaluate all that you are carrying. Work out what you might need to put down or cast aside in order to accommodate more safely and securely the new thing you have picked up. You don’t need to pause or stop pursuing the new dream, you just need to reassess all of your responsibilities and delegate or retire some things.

What is the energetic cause of this lump in my throat? 🧣

Most of us have experienced discomfort in our throat at some point in our lives, whether as a result of swollen glands, a viral infection, an injury or an emotional response to external circumstances. And, perhaps, at these times, we have been more aware of what that impediment meant in relation to our voice and our airway and the importance of that channel within us.

As a rule, we don’t tend to question our voice and the ease with which we can communicate until something interferes with it. We simply take it for granted, not giving our airway – and breathing and staying alive as a result of that oxygen – much thought or energy until something threatens it.

In this reading I address what might be the energetic cause of your throat complaint, i.e. what external event or circumstance is contributing to it; for what is physical always has these emotional components attached.

In this reading, the Hierophant speaks of something that is stuck and which has become too strict and rigid. The image in the card is cold, austere and the man is unsmiling. He rules from a position of power with the church at his back. The men at his feet are his acolytes, they do not dare question him. At first glance, the two grey columns stand out, reminding me immediately of a throat. The Hierophant then presents as a block in this airway; so he is what is stuck and causing the lump.

Are you being dictated to or dominated?
Are there voices in your present or carried forward from you past that are silencing or controlling you?

This card suggests that something that is hiding under the guise of moral rightness is the cause of your ‘lump’. Perhaps that is the medical system if you have tried to find answers via doctors. Perhaps it is the doctrines of society if you have tried to shift, change, challenge or grow at work. Perhaps it is your cultural roots if you were raised within a certain a belief system or under a specific religious canopy. Figure out what might be obstructing you from not only speaking your truth but also living it.

If you are already using your voice to stand up for yourself, what about the voices inside? How do they speak to you and how much of what they say do you believe and take to heart? Something needs to be loosened and set free. There is too much rigidity and stricture. Try something different. Think outside the box. Be a little more eccentric.

 

The Three of Swords shows us how to remove this lump and how to heal it. The answer is in the wounds that we carry in our heart. For just as the card depicts a heart punctured by three separate steel swords: so our own heart has been stabbed by events and individuals. Healing, therefore, comes from a thorough examination of story and self and work on addressing and releasing the trauma.

Who do we need to forgive?
What chapters in our narrative do we need to return to in order to rewrite? 
Where has our own opinion and our own beliefs been stoned and silenced?

Your throat may hurt but it is your heart that needs the healing and perhaps your throat is only blocked in response to trying to stem, silence and still that grief and that work.

When will I meet my soulmate? 💍

One of the most common questions I’m asked, and people in readings ask in general, is: “when will I meet my soulmate?”.

The next is: “is he/she my soulmate?”.

From the minute we are born, we are all searching for love. More than anything else in this world, it is what we want the most. To be seen, to be heard, to be respected and held: these things are powerful. With the ‘right’ love, we get to experience them – and, in doing so, continue to evolve and grow in a way that is both comfortable and meaningful. In the embrace of the ‘right’ love, we get to be our best selves, whilst living in and being supported in a nurturing and encouraging environment. With the right love we develop confidence and curiosity and we cultivate interest and adventure. With the right love our hearts remain whole even when they get broken. It protects us, sustains us; we are stronger.

But finding that ‘right’ love, that ‘perfect’ match, that person who truly gets and respects us, is the difficult part and, sadly for most of us, not our reality. Rather, we journey through relationships suffering all kinds of hurts, subjected to multiple infractions and indignities; sometimes wounded, sometimes broken and pulled apart; sometimes beaten, sometimes violated and raped. And yet, somehow, despite it all, perhaps in spite of such hardship, we continue: never giving up; constantly hoping, always trying to do better and get more.

How can we help to speed the process up and get to our soulmate faster? How can we avoid all this pain? 

The Lovers card portrays a beauty contest where Paris, the Trojan prince, has to choose between three goddesses:

1. Hera, the wife of Zeus, offering him a place in the world and a home upon its surface. She has created a position of power and authority and is queen of it.

2. Aphrodite, the goddess of love, promising sex and intimacy. She can walk naked without shame and seduce men without guilt. She is both is love with and at home within herself.

3. Athena, the goddess of wisdom, proffering loyalty and support, ready to fight for the things she truly believes in. She has strength and stamina and the courage to do what is right.

They stand there on the grass, as if on a stage – presenting their gifts, permitting themselves to be judged.

Do you know these women?

Are they in you?

How well are you acquainted?

Are they balanced and of equal strength?

This card is all about decisions and choices and when it comes to finding your soulmate and making a connection with them, you need to honour and balance all of your parts. Work on balancing your inner gods and goddesses and getting yourself ready for your soulmate. You will attract the right mate, the person you are destined to be with, when the healing work inside yourself has been more thoroughly explored. And remember, too, that if you have to stand on a platform and be judged, if you are selected only for your assets – you castle, appearance or fighting power… the ‘he’ or ‘she’ who selects you is not your true mate.

The Temperance card depicts Iris, goddess of the rainbow. She represents balance – between night and day, the sun and the moon, masculine and feminine, and the conscious and unconscious. In Greek mythology, she is also known as a messenger, carrying messages between heaven, earth and hell. And in some myths… she is known, too, for giving birth to Eros, the god of love. Here she reinforces the message of the Lovers card: balance yourself equally, embody and embrace all of your parts, strengthen where you are weak and temper where you are overly strong, stitch yourself back together, piece by piece, in a way that more accurately represents who you were before life interfered and began unpicking you. As Iris does, step into the river of healing and allow your to inner waters to flow, releasing all of the trauma and pain you have collected inside and stored. Measure out what you would like to release, cup by cup, while always ensuring one foot is firmly planted on the life-giving belly of the earth.


The Ace of Swords shows us Athena once again, echoing the Lovers card, encouraging us to really step into and embody and embrace this part inside of of ourselves.

How do we feel about her?

How often is she active?

Is her presence a light or a dark one?

Once we have done the integration work of the previous two cards, along with the necessary balancing and healing, we are in a position to safely step into ourselves as Athena, moving forwards into our proper and rightful future in order to claim what we want. This card tells us that we will be ready, that this future is out there. But first we have to climb some steep mountains and pass beneath some moody skies, and there might be a few obstacles ahead of us too… As the Lovers card asks us to decide, so here there are decisions to be made. What do you need to cut loose; who… in order to realise the life and the circumstances for which you were truly intended?

He loves me. He loves me not. 👨🏽‍🦱

Trying to figure out if someone likes us, whether it’s a romantic like or a platonic like, can be difficult. If we can’t read the signs, if their language is new and different to us, if the vibe is constantly shifting… can muddle our radars up. And when that happens it’s hard not to take it personally.

This reading is intended to be a casual probe into your current relationship of choice. It won’t necessarily provide answers, as this is not that kind of a deck; but it might shed some light and offer up some guidance and hope. And who are we to knock that?

The Compassion card reminds us that we are all on a journey and each one is unique. Just because you are in the right place for a relationship, doesn’t mean that other person is. Perhaps they have wounds from a recent entanglement that need more time to heal. Perhaps they have too much going on at work. Perhaps they have health issues or someone close to them does. And perhaps they just don’t feel the same way back. Whatever their situation it is their’s alone and not yours to judge. Or if you do, it’s not going to get you anywhere. This card calls for more understanding and patience in matters of the heart. Give them space. Give them time. Let the Universe decide for a bit.

The Grace card continues on with this theme, asking us, again, to be more understanding in how we look at and respond to others actions. If they perform in a way that is annoying, frustrating or offensive to us, like the dog in the card, we need to look deeper. When a dog soils in the wrong place, there is usually a reason. Before we lash out, before we act from hurt; first we need to be grounded. What would a person who really loves themselves and feels secure in that love of self do? How would they react? In the case of the dog, surely they would calmly but firmly take the situation in hand, either disciplining if called for, or soothing and calming if not. Not everything is about us. Sometimes people do or say upsetting and unkind things because of what is happening in their story. Remembering this and responding like a confident and secure person is the best way towards being met with the love and respect we are after and all deserve… whether from this person or the one we meet next.

How can I improve my relationship with my sister? 👱🏼‍♀️

When it comes to relationships, family can often be the area where we carry the most emotional baggage because it’s likely we have to tread more gently and be more mindful about what we say. Perhaps when we were growing up it was ok to throw a tantrum and scream and shout and pout and cry until it was all wrung out of us, the hurt and the infringement fully discharged? But as adults a degree of order and decorum must be followed and that’s where the problem lies. I’m not saying we should all carry on like ten year olds forever after until we die…. just that they have a point, because their battles, although loud and all-encompassing, don’t last very long. They disagree. They clash. They blow up. Things are dicey and uncomfortable for a while. And then there’s a thawing out and things get cleared. A biscuit and a cup of juice usually do it.

Adults are so much more complicated. And, as a result, subject to a lot more pain. When we were young a fight could usually be negotiated into resolution by an older sibling or parent. It wasn’t just up to us. We had help. Other people cared. Things were taken into hand. And if talking alone failed to remedy the situation, a bag of sweets, a week with our favourite doll, sleeping in our bed overnight or joining us on a sleep…. over could easily bridge the gap.

As adults, we have to think more deeply about our approach and apply more lasting and meaningful solutions. Sometimes, a bunch of flowers might be enough. But more often than not it requires difficult conversations and a whole heap of grovelling and forgiveness.

This reading is intended to help you to move towards harmony and union… and away from distance and despair.

Loving Words reminds us about the power of language and how words can either harm or heal. This card is a call for action and an invitation to make amends. When was the last time you said something nice to your sister, just because? Or when you complimented and praised her? How much love and appreciation do you pour into your relationship? No matter what has happened in the past, and no matter how much hurt has passed between you and possibly still exists, words are seeds, and if you plant nice ones, kind ones, like roses or pansies… pretty things will grow in their place. Plant pretty things and watch what rises to greet you.
