Today’s office. Very fortunate to have been developing a tarot practice over the last 17 years beginning with my grandfathers ex wife’s first deck and orientation so to speak. I’ve fell in and out of it for years and have clients dually who know this and are always checking if I am “open” or not. Along this path I have come in and out of decks. There are a lot of styles and ways to read and its intensely an individual practice. I open and close the doorway with decks and also just have a few I know were given to me and I am just meant to keep watch and love over until they make their way home. They say the “magic” is bestowed when the deck is given, not purchased and even so it’s a long way to comfortable and logical tarot. Some of these decks you see are in working mode and some are in training. Several are priceless, vintage, of the original brotherhood of light and One in particular (above the pink deck) is a rare deck devoted to Oz illustrations. I fought to remove the plastic for two years (thank you @legaldharma ) and last night I cracked it open. I’ve done 24 readings in the last 3 days on my new #triadreading system, completely blind and have felt personally really enchanted by the breakthroughs I’m having and offering. On my site BethKaya.com under intuitive consulting there’s a brief blurb on this style of flash reading and for the first time I am offering this 3 card spread to my Instagram audience. I only read 6 or so at a time so I have six spots for the next 48 hours. These readings are completely anonymous and are $15.00 – you receive a PDF and the actual reading photo. This scratches the surface a little – stirs the pot up and gives you a cornerstone about the past, present and future energies surrounding your journey. Thank you to all of the souls out there who have blessed me to keep these decks (17 one for each year?!) under my wing ! Also thank you @hoodxhippie for providing me with so many things for my practice. I love the energy in her orgones and have plenty of them surrounding me throughout my practice. 🙏 Sorry to be so wordy! Ya’ll know that’s me sometimes and important for tarot clarity anyhow! #tarot #intuitive #intention #channel
Reading tonight live and the channel has felt clear, vibrant and open so I offer you a single card. If this card finds you and you are called to it then by the principals of synchronicity it its for you. We are speaking to the energy that is surrounding. This is the queen of swords. She embodies a certain feminine energy. The feminine energy is often associated with emotional judgement. This is not so with the queen of swords. She represents an impartial air – she cares but she doesn’t react with empathy, which while noble can cloud balanced judgement. She reacts with logic and intellect. She analyses before she reacts and sometimes she doesn’t react as her reaction. This suggests that now is a time to root your emotions and ground your judgements on realistic and logical planes. Remove emotion and cut to the chase, execute without looking back and keep a firm presence that is clear in communication and concise with your thoughts. ❤️ In service to to spirit

9 OF SWORDS – I am getting a lot of requests to do readings for people but I really only open that channel a few times a year to the public. (That’s why you’re not seeing it listed in the shop at the moment ). It’s a very guarded practice for me because I think it’s largely misunderstood and people have unrealistic expectations sometimes. This morning I was called to live read for you, I always feel much more in tune with spirit when I am working under synchronicity rather then on demand. Based on that principle of you feel called to this reading it’s for you. 15 seconds is tough to fit all this content on but I did my best and will going forward to provide you with free intuitive services because it really deserves sharing. About this card – the great late Marvin Gaye asked a big question “What’s going on?” –

Clearing sacred space to read on this vintage deck that was passes down to me. I’ve recently welcomed this deck into my practice after spending a while getting to know it. It’s a 30+ year old deck and had it’s own time before mine. Tarot as a public offering has been a very guarded for me and I don’t tend to read in public anymore because I have a hard time really take my time to get through the stack of books I want to consult before I put my interpretation down. I am still learning even after practicing nearly 17 years. Every card has so many stories to tell! Infinite ways to apply them in their positioning and their true intent when in line with the others. All crumbs to the big portrait we want to get the Birdseye view of. Thankfully through digital readings I’ve had a lot of success keeping this on my sacred terms and offering this channel to the well intending and open of heart. If working with me via my intuitive practices sounds like something you could be interested in reach out! I love to connect and share most of all and we could be a could fit. #smudging #palosanto #sandalwood #herbalsmudge #cleansing #tuning #tarot #intuition #esoteric #knowledge #roadmap #symbols #grounding #spiritwork #lightworker #spiritpractice

So a dear friend of mine was tasked to clean her husband’s late uncle’s estate. He apparently was a huge fan of the mystical arts, so through her I’ve found myself in possession of about 12 or so new – to – me tarot decks.
Tarot is pretty misunderstood as a whole by a lot of people and rightfully so. There are lots of different kinds of decks, styles and directions a person can take with Tarot.
Let me start off by stating that the art and practice of tarot is an individual thing to each person reading. Some people have different definitions of the channel they are working through and that is all up to your discretion when you’re seeking a reading.
Fraternities and Fraternal orders have been around since ancient times. Collective groups of individuals are the tastemakers, the gamechangers and the puppeteers behind the gears of life within our control. They are clued into certain signs and practices available in life to tune in and advance. Some knowledge sets and philosophies discussed in some Tarot decks can be traced back to the ancient egyptians, mayans, romans and greeks. There are pieces of wisdom laced up in the iconography, in the legends and myths we are supposed to be continuing to pass on.
When I got this lot of new decks I was a little overwhelmed. A deck only has energy for a reader when given to you. So I am overwhelmed to think I could assimilate 12 new decks into my practice. I researched every one. Some of them are of the Thoth format. This was written by Aleister Crowley and if you know rock and Roll you’ve heard his name. What most people don’t know is that Tarot was around long before him and he was part of a fraternal order at one point. The Hermetic Golden Order. This order was made up of many influential members of society including members of the Freemasons. At one point Crowley left the order and began one of his own – creating his own religion, deck of tarot and also practices with black magic rituals. (Yikes)
The deck I read with isn’t associated with any black magic anything. Its a Rider Waite Smith deck and was designed in the early 1900s by members also of the Hermetic Golden Dawn. It was a visual representation of the secrets and lessons being passed down by these orders in the form of a game that had long been practiced before. It’s said that at one time the nomadic travelers (sometimes known as Roma, or Gypsies) of early ancient times picked up fortune telling rituals from their European and African travels in the vain of tarot & gambling too and also formed their own version of the practice and at times scams with the art.
After performing several elemental rituals on the decks of cards to cleanse them from any previous energy or stagnancies – only 1 deck really called to my person practice that I am developing. This deck has an egyptian ank on the cover and it was stubborn. I prayed on this deck, buried it, smudged it, set it out under the moon, placed it with my purest crystals and intentions. I Shuffled and shuffled, upon shuffled it and after a few weeks I finally began to get the feeling the deck was ready for reading.
It’s a funny little ugly thing accepting money for offering a service like this. Especially under the operation of a new deck and one that Spirit simply fated to me. This weekend I felt a huge channel open up for my new-to-me deck and I offered up free OPEN readings via social media. Friday through Sunday (up until this moment) I’ve been reading a free card for anyone willing in the vain of “your surroundings”.
I had some great conversations – some great readings and for the most part despite reading blind, I felt very in tune with the information I was delivering. I hope the 17 other people that participated this weekend felt it too!
My tarot practice tells stories to help you get a birds eye view on a situation or the entire picture. Sometimes we are stuck within the delusion of our own perception of things and it blocks us from moving forward. I am super thankful to have had the chance to read and practice so much this weekend with everyone who volunteered their open minds. Thank you @Terra Kroll of The Darshana Collective for my beautiful new Tarot decks. For the rest of January, I would like to continue to offer 1 card in the vain of “Your Surroundings” to anyone willing.
