The Devil can represent evil intentions. It also shows that you feel that you are tied to a particular person. Keep your guard up. There is someone around you that you should not trust fully. In a relationship reading, it can also represent sex!

Negative Energy

Negative energy seems to multiply the more you are around it. When you find yourself around someone who is negative, it is time for you to pull yourself away from that situation. If at work and someone you cannot get away from, redirect your energy! Do not let negativity get a hold of you as it spreads like the plague! No matter how bad things may seem, there is always a positive lingering around. Some things go hand in hand. You cannot have day without night. And you cannot have bad without something good. Sometimes things are out of ones control, however negativity is something you CAN control yourself!

Tarot Tip of the Day....The 3 of Wands

A little about Me

I do enjoy your emails of asking questions about me. I will write some updates from time to time of what is going on in my life. So, I thought I would let you know that my interest are very common and do extend beyond the metaphysical.
I live in central Virginia, the suburbs of Richmond. Or as my Grandma would refer to as “The garden spot of the world”. I am two hours from the ocean and three hours from the mountains. We do experience all four seasons here.
There are lots of things that I enjoy. One is reading, but I often don’t take the time to do so. I recently read two of the four books of the Twilight series. I would recommend this to everyone! My daughter referred me to the book. I would have never imagined it would have been anything I liked, let alone loved! I also like to cook and spend time with my family and friends. I have two nephews and two nieces and am amazed at how they are growing!
Recently I have taken an interest in yoga. As most of you know, my paranormal team takes up a lot of my spare time, but I love it all the same.
As far as television, I do take the time to watch a lot of shows. Mostly late at night and I seem to prefer reality series. Some of my favorites are Top Chef, Project Runway, Dr G., Ghost Adventures, The Real Housewives Series, and I love Army Wives! (We will not discuss how mad I am that Comcast (my cable provider) has taken away Sci-Fi and the History Channel!) My daughter raises the roof if she catches me watching HGTV, as this generally results in creative projects around the house! (She is threatening to set parental controls for me.)
I attempted to grow an herb garden this year. Things were going well until everything began to sprout, in which my cat had a feast on!
My favorite color is definitely purple. My office is painted in a pale lavender and I LOVE it! My favorite foods would be a toss up between Seafood and Italian. My music interests vary from Country to 80’s rock. (For those on the computer all day, I would recommend themixrock.com, I also did my first radio show there.)
As of now, it looks like my vacation spot will be Ocean City, Maryland. That is a different twist for me as I usually go South or West instead of North and I have never been there.
Things that I hate of course are liars and thieves. Not to mention bridges, tunnels, elevators, and planes. Believe it or not, I have never been on a plane, and hope I can keep it that way! I am claustrophobic and I have a fear of heights.
I am currently fighting the battle of a nicotine addiction and can use your prayers! Overall I am doing well, but some days are worse than others.
I am new to “Twitter” and would have never thought so many would follow my “Tweets” of what I am doing. I like it, it is definitely something different!
Even though she is 20 years old now, above all, I am still “MOM”, my number one job.
I am very happy with my chosen career path. As well as being truly blessed by family and friends that support me!

Tarot Tip of the Day....The King of Swords

The King of Swords represents a person. This is usually someone who is quick to lash out and has a sharp tongue. This can also indicate unfavorable conversations. Someone who is very quick tempered.

Tarot Tip of the Day....The 10 of Pentacles

The 10 of Pentacles, one of my favorite cards! I am sure you have heard me reference that pentacles are referenced as money. This shows financial security. It also shows worries over money matters are now coming to an end. It can however, also refrence a person that is materialistic in a reading.

A little about "Sasha Marie"

I have received many comments and questions about Sasha. (photo at the bottom of the blog). She will be 9 years old in August and is an AKC registered Siberian Husky. Two words that I can think of that would describe her best.....HIGH MAINTENANCE. She has me trained well! Yes, both of her eyes are light blue. (If the light hits her right, they appear red, earning her the name "devil dog" by my neighbors.) She is aggressive, and very protective of me and my daughter. She can also be protective of Roxy, (her sister) our spoilt cat. It is NOT a common trait that a husky and a cat get along. Huskys are beautiful creatures but there are things you should know if you are looking at getting one. First they dig, not just holes, but craters! This is not a puppy trait, they are diggers. They are escape artists, and will not stay in a pen or a fence because they are runners. In Sasha's case, who is in the house, she blows her coat twice a year, costing me a vacuum cleaner about once a year! They are not fond of children. She is always with me. (under the desk now) She "works" my schedule and follows me everywhere and I talk to her all the time as she is a very close friend to me. She is also a wonderful paranormal investigator and can successfully catch EVP's of ghost doggies! If I leave home overnight, "Granny" has to come and stay with her. Don't get me wrong, she won't tear up the house. She will wait until I get home to start trashing the place because she is mad that I left her. She is definitely "my baby" and I thank you for your inquiries.

Tarot Tip of the Day....The Star

The Star indicates a standstill or a delay. There is a pause before things will be resumed. It can also indicate that you are anxious about something, but the time is not right. It is a time to rest. Regroup your thoughts. Realize that what you want is around the corner, but you must first get through this delay.

This past weekends investigation...

As most of you know, we performed and investigation in Northern Virginia this past weekend with Patrick Burns from Haunting Evidence, and Shannon and her husband Jeff from Ghost Hunters International. This was a real joy for CVAPI. I cannot begin to express how personable they all were. How great it was to see them interactivly work together with my team members. It certainly has bought to light that celebrities are people as well, just as you and I. Both Patrick and Shannon have some great things in the works! You will be seeing more of them soon!

Tarot Tip of the Day....The 8 of Cups

The 8 of cups represents it is now time to still your thoughts. Too much wondering is not good for your health! It is time to clear your mind, let go and let things happen. It can also represent daydreaming or delusion.

Upcoming Projects...

I am beginning to think that the 9 of Wands definitely applied to me today! There are several things that you can look for in the upcoming weeks.
There will be a down loadable ebook available at http://www.ms-swami.com/ on the simple ways to work and understand the Tarot. For the locals, a Tarot workshop is being organized. For the not so locals, an online class will be offered.
I am bringing back The Psychic Shop in a different format. This will allow you to purchase t-shirts, coffee cups and mugs, clocks and other novelties with your zodiac sign and other fun psychic related things.
For those of you interested in Reiki, I hope to have this set up by the Fall.
On the paranormal side of things. You can look for an upcoming local workshop of Ghosthunting 101. As well as I hope to have this set up as an online class as well. http://www.cvapi.com/
I am really glad that I started the new blog, as I appear to have many readers. Leave me some comments anytime! Have a happy and safe weekend!

Tarot Tip of the Day....The 9 of Wands

The 9 of Wands will show that you are feeling overwhelmed. Too much on your plate. A lot to get done in a very short time. You also may feel that there are too many obstacles ahead of you. Or you may feel that everything is against you at this time. Know this, recognize it and move forward!

Tarot Tip of the Day....The 7 of Swords

The seven of swords, certainly not one of my favorite cards. This card reprsents deception. I refer to it as "the sneeky cheating card" lol. This indicates plots behind your back, or lies being told. It can also represent scams. Rest assured, something is not right!

Psychics are Humans Too

This blog was encouraged by an email that I received last night.
Psychics are human beings just like you. We don't possess supernatural powers. Basically it means that I live the same as you.
I don't live in a castle or a dungeon, lol. I live in the average American home. I drive average American vehicles (Chevy all the way!). Believe it or not, we have a very hard time when it comes to reading for ourselves.
I don't have bats as pets. (I love that one!). I have a Siberian Husky named Sasha (pictured at the bottom of my blog) with whom is with me all day and night. I also have a spoiled cat named Roxy. Living with me is also, my 20 year old daughter, who is gifted as well and does not work as a psychic. If you entered my home, there is nothing there that would scream that I am a psychic.
If you saw me in the grocery store, no, you would have no clue that I am a psychic. I wear normal clothes and normal jewelry. (Halloween...now that is another story!)
Working as a professional psychic makes me no different than you. I love what I do! If I can answer your questions and give some much needed guidance, than it is all worth it!
I do work the night shift because I prefer to. Many people work night shifts. Do I have problems in my life? Of course I do! Like I said we are humans.

Tarot Tip of the Day....The Knight of Wands

This card represents peace. You are now moving away from your struggles. There is a sense of accomplishment. You are ready to address the day and whatever obstacles it may present. You can honestly say that you are happy. Things are now moving in the right direction.

Signs of Psychic Scams

The psychic industry, unfortunately, appears to be full of scam artists these days. The stories I hear from my clients are disheartening to say the least. If you have been scammed, please feel free to share your story. I have clients who are out of thousands of dollars in which, they will never recover. Here are a few helpful tips to let you know if you are being scammed.

1. They are trying to instill fear in you.
2. They want you to purchase items such as candles, crystals, etc. or something in your life will not come to pass.
3. They are requesting to be paid via Western Union (there is no recourse in getting your money back)
4. They are trying to sell you lottery numbers. (If we knew the lottery numbers we would play them ourselves!)
5. They have referenced Curse or Hex removal.
6. They want to charge for aura cleansing or negativity removal.
7. DO NOT send cash to a psychic either in the US or another country! (I have heard of many scams associated with this practice.)
8. Beware of letters that appear to be personally addressed to you. (I have seen them from some well known psychics, they are in fact a form letter in which everyone receives.)
9. DO NOT pay for spell work. (If it is a spell you seek, do it yourself, you have no guarantees that someone did this for you. And KNOW what you are doing! Be careful what you wish for as you just might get it!)

These are just a few of the scams that I see most often. A psychic reading should be pleasurable and insightful. It should be personalized to you and your questions. Not a generalized reading that could apply to anyone.
If you have been scammed, don't let this deter you from psychics all together. There are some truly great psychics out there! Just beware of the common scams!

Tarot Tip of the Day....The 6 of Wands

The 6 of wands represents "victory". A complete contentness within yourself. A mission accomplished. In a reading, if you are looking at an idea, this shows that you are on the right path. Also can represent that you traveled a hard road but was well worth it.

Tarot Tip of the Day....The 4 of Pentacles

The four of pentacles represents a couple of different things in a reading. If you look at the card you will notice he has his money close to him. Under his feet, in his arms and in his hat.

Tarot Tip of the Day....The Knight of Pentacles

The knight of pentacles represents a messenger card. In this case the message is regarding money and finances. In "most" cases this is a positive card. However, in matters of money, you will need to take a look at the cards surrounding it. It does not represent great wealth, but it does show financial security.
