Is It Time You Play Big?

Yin Ace of Wands.jpg

Harness your fire.

“Remember this,” I pointed to the Judgement card at the top of the reading. “You’re clear on the ground you’ve covered up til now. Now it's next level. You’re over considering how to get there. Jump in, play the game. Play it big. All your cards on the table.

“This is what’s next for you.” I told her. “It’s all about career. You want more movement, more action, and more growth. The thinking process? It's over. Now, DOING needs kicked into high gear. This hand here? It’s basically like, Girl, will you reach out and take this opportunity? I’m giving you everything you need! I know you CAN. But will you?

I tapped the Ace of Wands. “This card shows me all the energy available to you over the next three months. It’s fire energy, it’s the energy of growth, of fuel. That’s it. Energy. Available. And what you want to create is just on the other side of it. It’s totally up to you to use it or not.

"But let me tell you, this year ahead? For you? It’s about power. Not time.”

If you're feelin' the fire right now but the direction to burn has you wondering, book in with me. Let’s harness that fire energy!

Play With Power

I have a confession.

My stomach was in knots every day at work. I was 21. A customer would hand me their yellow slip, and I’d walk into the frame shop to look up their order. Oh no. I would start sweating. The artwork wasn’t done yet. They were gonna be so mad!

I couldn’t face an angry person, no no no. Somebody else do it, please! I found out later I had severe anxiety. I’d developed PTSD about a year after an accident. Conflict just made it all worse.

But you know, I’m grateful for that time. Glad even. I learned SO much about how to hold myself differently. I would literally stand in a superwoman pose for five minutes before work, helping my body to chemically stay on MY side. (You don’t know power poses?! Go look ‘em up girl!)

The Emperor teaches you about how you use your power. He is your ability to command and create in your life. Healthy power sets you up for good boundaries, so you can deal with others, or say NO when you mean it and stick to it, or hold your own in a tough talk. It even makes you kinder. Yeah, power makes you kinder. When you feel in control, or EMpowered, you're able to channel your emotions and reactions without becoming either 1) too submissive or 2) too dominating. You’ll find the beautiful middle playground that is EMPOWERMENT

On this playground, you get to create more in your life. You can call the shots. More peace, more calm. More art, more joy. You can't create from a restricted state, and it's also hard to create when you feel powerless. Empowerment invites you into a playful life, one where you feel safe, secure, and like you’ve totally go this.

You do.

Interview With A…Medium?

At 1,609 views, this video’s been popular! Lynne Forget is a medium I studied with for a week at AFC! (I know, I had to take alllll my AFC vids down- sorry guys!)

Lynne's experience with spirit(s) and realizing she talked to them started as a child! Wild. I had lots of experiences growing up, but direct communication has taken my left brain a long time to open up to! Don’t we just all have our own fun little journey?

Mediumship is wonderful to do, because we connect to loved ones and show you how spirit is around us and cares about our highest good. Enjoy Lynne!

Push, Push, Breathe.

I pushed myself hard last year. To make videos. Blog posts. To work out and stretch my body in new ways, to grow as a psychic and a medium.

Push, push, push. Then, I took a breath. I pulled back on absolutely everything, I reined in the constant driving force I had over myself, and chose just one thing. 2018 would be my year, I thought.

Well, it’s been my year. The new has flooded in. New countries seen. New people met. Over 150 tarot readings, livestreams not included.

Got this new biz card made, by a Brit I met in Thailand, a super-cool chick named Sophie. She’s a gentle heart and fierce spirit if I ever did meet one.

I used to feel unsupported, like I couldn’t go far without help. I needed more resources. This breath helped me feel support. Letting one thing go made space for something new to take its place. Magical moments, like meeting Sophie, flowed in. For the exact lessons I needed, people appeared. I also got cozy with being seen online, and it’s like people really see me.

Can you release something in order to let something else in? Can you relax your hold on something so the Universe can bring what you really need?

Blessings.

You're The Magician Here

The Magician! Everybody loves this card showing up. He’s the first one in at the party.

Here’s a tarot card that reminds us about the simplest way we undermine ourselves on the daily: forgetting our power. He might appear just to say, "You GOT this, what are you waiting for?"

You forget your intention, your skills. You forget your connection to the universal spark. You forget you’re the co-creator of your life!

We might need a trigger to remember what we've learned, what abilities we have.

At your first job, did you know how to do everything? You absorbed and cultivated skills there by learning. They prepared you to move on to another one. You’d built skill sets to back you up, and knew that learning is a process.

What have you forgotten that you can do, that you can learn? Recall what it is, and call your powers back to you. Now go out there, and do it!

What's One Wish You'd Make Today?

The moment you doubt whether you can fly, you cease for ever to be able to do it.

Wonderland Healing Center, Koh Phan-Gan, Thailand

Going to Thailand was unimaginable six months ago. I'd always wanted to travel. I knew I truly craved geographical freedom. I feel claustrophobic when I’m tied to a place for too long. Like in LA.

Last year, I had to move for the sixth time in the three years I’d been in Los Angeles. I didn’t let myself lose it like I had at other times. Instead, I thought, "How do I want to go forward? What will make me happy?"

 It’s hard to go beyond life's expected parameters. Going to explore a new country isn’t an everyday thing for most of us. I learned though, to imagine, to create in my mind: what do I want next? How do I want it to play out? Can I open up to the possibility of it happening, or am I too afraid?

Turns out, I could. You CAN manifest. Manifest just means to make something real. Believing that you can manifest is just a mindset shift to trust your own intention. The Universe brings in the magic sparkle and flow.

Line up with that magic by getting grateful. By being in a good mood. If you gotta fake it to make it, get your work out on girl! Your mood is all about the chemicals flowing through that body of yours. Write down what you want, get your mind clear.

Ask yourself:

  • How can I live differently?

  • What do I always wish I could do when I’m daydreaming?

  • When I’m really dreaming?

  • Could I do yoga every day? Wait, do I want to or am I just reading this list?

Get clear on what YOU want. I want to be free to do my work anywhere, and lots of time for self-care. What about you? Write it down. Start the shifts.

Afraid it won’t work? Afraid manifesting is a bunch of crap?

Begin with intention. Just like how you get out of bed and shower for the day, or extend your arm to pick up a coffee cup, it all starts with a thought, which moves your body, which then moves the world around you.

Happy moving.

Beginning At 0

Are you ready to start reading tarot? Card 0, The Fool, starts off the deck.

Begin with zero: the circle of life, infinity, our soul and the soul of the universe. Oneness.

You might feel nervous to learn. There’s so much! That's why I started my YouTube tarot videos with very simple, straightforward ideas that address just a theme or two for a single card.

Associating with the cards as though they’re people helps you get to know them. You don’t instantly know everything about a coworker! You associate. “When did you start working here? Do you like it? What music do you listen to?”

The Fool, to me, is at its core about trust and positivity. A fresh start, a spiral energy, the circle as the simplest container. The perfect place to start a tarot practice.

Happy reading.

Why I Love Crystals (Like I Need A Reason!)

Our intention creates our reality.
— Wayne Dyer

I’m crazy for crystals. C-r-azy. Amethyst, rose quartz, lepidolite, you name it!

I see them as a tool for intention. With a focus, we can do, have, or heal anything. With a reminder of what we plan to do, have, or heal, like a crystal, we’re likely to get there the fastest.

In 2016, I couldn’t believe I was going to tell people via YouTube how much I love rocks! But regardless of what you believe about crystals, they’re amazing. The wisdom in crystal books and the stones themselves are deep tools to dive into our personal work.

Coupled with tarot, stones like quartz, selenite, rose quartz and amethyst were some of my most important supporters at various times in my life- and sometimes, we needs things (or other beings, if you will) to help us more than people, especially if it's time to look at ourselves in a way we never have, or to heal things that we can only approach alone.

Wishing you strength and intention on your beautiful journey.

Ready For Class?

Tarot isn't just about pretty pictures and pro readings- it's a functional tool for each of us to grow and learn- we can literally do this forever! It's a book that never ends, the desert-island pick for you to explore your inner and outer experiences endlessly.

I made these videos over a year and a half ago. I loved making them, and setting out on a creative online journey. I've learned a lot about myself. And right now, I'm laughing at my own discomfort on camera in this video, and noticing that WOW, editing got ten times easier for me.

I want you to use tarot for self-care and to get your mind right whenever you need to! I'm working on a class called Tarot For Yourself. It's a dive anyone can take into the world of tarot and how to use it for personal development and healing. Consider it dipping a toe into the pool.

See you there.

I Was So Camera Shy

Knowing yourself is the beginning of all wisdom.
— Aristotle

I both cringe and applaud when I watch this video.

It’s my first one on Yintrospection. I made it in fall 2016, alone in my big apartment, petrified of the camera. It's fun to look back now. I've come far in my own growth and healing- and also, camera lenses are my friends.

Introspection was essential to my personal healing. I was studying acupuncture then, and the concept of yin, which has aspects of quiet, inward, reflection, and receptive qualities, was a strong focus of my meditation practice. So, my channel name, and now my Instagram and social media name, was born: Yintrospection!

By paying attention to your mental and emotional patterns, you really open up to your life. You open up to your own growth, your dreams and desires, to possibility. More than anything, I want to inspire you to see yourself.

All the love to you,

 Tara
