The earliest origins of the Tarot cards are somewhat ambiguous and remain shrouded in mystery. Some believe their use began in ancient Egypt, some with the ancient Celts. Others believe they came from China, India or Persia….Wherever the truth lies, what we do know is today’s deck dates back to the mid-fifteenth century when the aristocratic Italian Viscounti-Sforza family commissioned the painting of several Tarot decks.  The 78-card deck has been used in many different ways during its existence. There is evidence that it was originally employed as a card game called tarot in France and tarocchi in Italy. Many different decks exist today and the fascination with the Tarot continues.  Many people believe the Tarot to be “fortune-telling” cards. This is somewhat of a misnomer. The cards are not intended to predict a “fixed future.” Rather, they are a way to connect more powerfully with ourselves in the present by working with their symbolism. That’s where the “reader” comes into play. These are people who have studied the card’s symbolism over a period of years and can facilitate a connection or bridge if you will, to gain stronger access to your intuitive and spiritual life.  For those who are new to having a Tarot “reading”, it’s not unlike going to a career counselor. The cards are a tool that can help reveal patterns in relationships; our strengths, weaknesses, and access information to on-going questions about our purposes on Earth. A Tarot reading can have a cathartic effect creating a “A-ha” moment that can clear a path toward your greater aspirations. For others it can be an experience of emotional support during a time when they feel as if “the Path” is clouded from view. It can also be just plain fun!  Enjoy life, it’s precious, and if you would like to experience a Tarot reading, just make the appointment!  Penned by Janice Komar

Reiki / SRT / SpR

Reiki (pronounced Ray-Key) moves one toward balance of the whole being: spiritual, emotional, mental and physical. This ancient form of balancing allows the body to self-heal and whole on all levels while providing a sense of nurture. It will be as if you have come home and turned on the light switch. With use, the light becomes brighter and brighter. Follow the happenings of life; they will bring you to places and people who will promote inner growth. One may find that focal points and priorites of living are altered. More often you will find a quiet honesty about your actions and lifestyle. Be prepared for growth and change, accept and enjoy what happens.
