“Any Oracle that endures must be of service to at least three consecutive generations.” 

– Margaret Mead 

 

For the past 7 years, I’ve been creating divinatory tools that help open channels to ancestral communication. Some of you may recall the Charming Dead Oracle or Magpie Oracle Seer Charm kits that were part of a series of online courses I co-taught with my gifted friend Andrew Kyle McGregor.

Yet, in the beginning, there was the first edition of the Relative Tarot. At the time of its first release, I’d initially intended that this deck be limited to court and Major Arcana cards to represent the ancestors, sitters, friends, family, key players, personality traits and significant communications; but, The Relative Tarot really wanted to become a 78-card experience. It evolved into a tool that heightened the connection to spirit, the little details, memories, insights, the everyday things encountered in the Land of Form that support the experience of evidential mediumship. While I fell down a personal rabbit hole with this particular project (it’s very dear to my heart and my own calling), little did I realize how big the demographic for divination and ancestral communication would be.

Both versions of the deck sold out almost immediately, (thank you!) and this was a clear sign that there was a great need for magical approaches to both personal healing – and in doing so, healing the family tree. Happily, the Relative Tarot was picked up by the publisher Red Wheel-Weiser and a beautiful new edition will be released in November 2021. Stay tuned.

In addition to ancestral-focused cards and casting kits, I’ve been working behind the scenes with Lisa Bonnice, host of the Shift Network’s popular Ancestral Healing Summits. Together, Lisa and I have co-created a new tool for divining messages from our ancestors with which I’m head over heels in love. It’s my experience that the most meaningful tools arrive at your doorstep very quickly. They knock loudly, ensure you’re aware of all of their needs, and are ready to give them form – like, now!

Artists often describe their creation process as being timeless. I get that now. The Generations Oracle was a relentless, energizing creation and like the notorious duende, it wouldn’t let go of my attention until we were finished, half a year later – which felt like a heartbeat. Please stay tuned for the release date. For now, you can hear more about The Generations Oracle in my Shift Network interview on Lisa’s Ancestral Healing Summit which is free to listeners between February 22-26.

It was also during the creation of The Generations Oracle that I created the following casting map for Diane Wilke’s Southeastern Tarot Conclave. Like many of my tools, the goal of this map is to help us open a dialogue, specifically with our beloved ancestors. It also combines and layers tarot cards with casting charms, a very happy marriage, though any divination tool will do.

Visit here for printable downloads of this spread or simply mirror the positions using a set of cards. Here’s how it works:

Please note this divination is a lighter version of mediumship and for communicating with those on the Other Side. More specifically our ancestors. And by lighter, I mean it doesn’t require you to go into a deep state in order to start a conversation. That can definitely happen, but for this divination, I encourage you to learn the steps before going into deeper dialogues with your ancestors.

  • Step 1: Set up your space and create boundaries. Invite to your divination a helpful, as opposed to drama-charged ancestor and preferably one who has your best interest in heart. If using a tarot deck, remove and set aside the 16 court cards. If casting, I recommend randomly selecting your items and assigning them to the positions on this map rather than casting them.

 

  • Step 2: Start with the 4 Pages positioned inside the circle. Pages are often referred to messengers and go-betweens and for this divination, each Page represents your ancestor’s message regarding 4 life lessons they experienced during their time on Earth in body/Page of Pentacles, mind/Page of Swords, heart/Page of Cups and spirit/Page of Wands. Think of these 4 positions as your ancestor’s opportunity to communicate something important they learned and also hope you will not forget. Here your charms or cards will represent your ancestor’s voice and message.

 

  • Step 3: Now that you’ve opened a dialogue and have an idea of your ancestor’s Earth experience, let’s move to the 4 Aces which can symbolize a new start or influence. For this spread they represent a seed of support your ancestor is offering you during your time on Earth. Assign a random card or charm to each Ace to reveal the possible potential and growth you can experience with your ancestor’s support in body/Ace of Pentacles, mind/Ace of Swords, heart/Ace of Cups and spirit/Ace of Wands.

 

  • Step 4: The 12 remaining court cards help identify the character and physical traits of the ancestor you have been in communication with. And this is where I ask you to put your cards to the side and rely more on charms or other casting items. Randomly select just one item and cast it over this spread. If it lands directly on any of the 12 court cards, or pretty close to one (I’ll leave it to you should you wish to include the Pages in this casting), chances are this is the ancestor who is revealing something to you about their character and physical traits. As a side and in my personal experience, if a charm lands outside of the spread, this indicates an ancient ancestor who exists beyond the family memory.

 

Determining traits via the court cards is an old cartomancy technique for selecting a significator. With this method, the diviner would select a court card to represent their sitter, or someone the sitter is asking about. There are a number of methods for determining a significator and most were originally gleaned from the querent’s gender, race, age, sun sign, or social and marital status. Some of these methods feel outdated as we find the topic of personal identity ever evolving. For this reason, I’ve added a chart that highlights a just few of the traits diviners often experience, but please build your own. This is, after all, your divination.

Once your divination is complete, take a few minutes to observe your findings. Rather than shelf your reading, now is the time to ask more questions, search old family photos, or dig into your ancestral history, all of which can help affirm your divination. Look for themes that might be rooted in your linage and extend the experience by divining ways to heal, or further dialogue with your family line. Don’t worry if nothing reveals itself just yet. It happens. Instead, view this as an opportunity to trust your intuition and learn patience while practicing this art.

Merry divining.

Kingston Tarot Lenormand Conference

More Details Here

One of my greatest joys in life is presenting at divination conferences and another is attending. I’ve had the privilege of presenting at the Kingston Tarot Lenormand Conference for the past two years and look forward to sitting in attendance this year because the presenters are some of my favorite people who are madly skilled at magic and divination, which happens to be this year’s conference theme.

 

Please join us in what I often refer to as the most relaxing and delicious conference of the year. Seriously! The organizer, Marilyn Shanon thinks of everything. The hotel is located on the water with massive windows to enjoy the view. Large, comfortable and affordable rooms all within strolling distance to great restaurants and shopping, beautiful gathering spots in the lobby with warm fire places to divine by and more. Oh and Marilyn has the event catered by a chef who creates the most delicious meals that are healthy, with gluten free options (this coming from a food snob). You-will-never-hunger nor will you crash due to poor food options. In addition the vendors always bring items I never realized I needed and now treasure. Beautiful wares at Canadian prices. A win-win! Hope to see you there!

Autumn is here (can you feel it?) and with it ripe opportunities to honor and converse with those on the Otherside. From October 25-30, the Shift Network’s Beyond the Veil Summit, hosted by Lisa Bonnice, delivers 5 days of free discussions that explore the nature of near-death experiences, mediumship and the science of the afterlife. I loved being part of the conversation and look forward to learning new techniques from leading researchers in the field.

To add to the season, I made a new casting map thematic of October’s magick. Some of the best parlour games are carryovers from Samhain and Autumn harvest festivals, many of which were created with the abundance of seasonal resources people had on hand. Apple bobbing, Jack-o`-lantern gazing and pumpkin or apple seed divining are just a few activities that come to mind.

In the spirit of magical conversations and recycling seasonal resources, I repurposed a vintage Halloween game board to create an easy-to-use casting opportunity (cards work too).

The original game featured numbers ranging from 1 to 22 for a roll-and-move, start to finish experience. The number 22 immediately caught my attention because it pairs so beautifully with the 22 cards in the tarot’s major arcana. Keeping this connection in mind, I replaced most of the numbers with starter sentences that borrow from the major arcana’s voice.

This map doesn’t require you be an expert diviner. In fact anyone can receive instant insights simply by casting a handful of charms or tchotchkes onto the image followed by musing over where they land and why. In other words, this divination is for everyone. Come to think of it, I suspect pumpkin seed diviners had to start somewhere. Here is how it works:

  • Print the following casting map or recreate the 22 positions on a piece of paper that you can cast charms onto.
  • Grab a handful of charms or other items and cast them onto your map. Take note of where they land and begin talking about what they might be directing your attention towards.
  • Another option: Assign a random charm or card to each position on the map. This approach will take more time, but also cover a lot of ground.
  • I maintained 3 squares from the original game that suggest you move forward or back. I recommend you take heed if a charm lands in one of these positions which might make for an unexpected outcome.
  • Look for themes like love, work and personal growth, or repeat advice like, take a chance, or don’t take that job, and possible patterns that ask, haven’t you been here before?
  • The word “this” in each starter sentence represents the symbolic nature of your charms or cards. For example if a Key charm lands on the position that reads, Magical thinking creates this, then the Key might presage an unlocked mind that supports magical over Muggle thinking. If a Coin lands in the position that reads, Utilize this to move forward, it might suggest you invest more in yourself or a project you’ve been working on. Always go with your immediate hunch, which is usually right.

The goal is for you to have a little October fun while gaining meaningful insights during this magical month. So have at it, dear diviner and may your future follow your highest wishes.

Only the dead have seen the end of war. – Plato

On the last Monday in May, the U.S. observes Memorial Day, a day for honoring those who died while serving in the military. One of the symbols associated with this day is the red remembrance poppy, inspired by the 1915 World War I poem, In Flanders Fields by John McCrae who wrote the poem after witnessing his fellow soldier and friend die on the battle filed. Lines in the poem refer to poppies as being the first flowers to grow in the churned-up earth of soldiers’ graves.

In 1918, professor and volunteer YMCA Overseas worker, Moina Michael made tribute to McCrae’s poem with one of her own titled, We shall Keep the Faith. She also adopted and vowed to wear the red poppy everyday as a symbol of remembrance and became the acting leader in the campaign to make it a national symbol. Though widely adopted by international veterans’ groups, the red poppy is mostly seen in Canada, Australia, New Zealand and the U.K.

Over the years other poppies have been introduced using varying colors to symbolize more inclusive ways for commemorating victims of war:

White Poppies stand for peace and symbolize all casualties of those who were in conflict with war.

Purple Poppies, sometimes replaced with a purple paw, symbolizes animal victims of war like horses, dogs and pigeons who, like many humans, were unwillingly drafted into service.

Black Poppies are viewed two-fold. Introduced by the Stop the War Coalition, the black poppy is seen as an anti-war symbol and commemorates the conscientious objectors of World War I. It also stands for the contribution of people of color in the war effort.

Khadi Poppies are also red, but made of khadi, which is the cotton made famous by Mahatma Gandhi spinning it on his Charkha as a symbol of self-sufficiency. This poppy stands for the contribution of Indian soldiers and ethnic minorities in World War I.

Since 2015, I’ve been deeply committed to collecting vintage photographs to be used as card candidates in the Relative Tarot, a deck that honors our ancestors and the beloved dead. Mixed with photos of stage actors, politicians and circus performers are the overlooked victims of war which include, but are not limited to, children, the elderly, women, animals, belief systems and the environment.

For this Memorial Day I wanted to introduce a divination that serves as one of the Relative Tarot’s foundational pillars which is strongly rooted in ancestral remembrance. This spread puts us in contact, honors and remembers those who lost their lives due to war. May it bring peace to our beloved dead and the living while promoting a future of non-violence. Here’s how it works:

For this spread you will need a 78-card tarot deck and two dice. Don’t have a set of dice? No problem, there’s an app for that. And while it’s nice to print out the following handout for keeping a visual record of your reading, it’s also not required. Pulling a card for each position works too as do charms.

Start by energetically preparing and clearing your space with whatever method works best for you. For this spread I like to light 5 white peace candles while reciting a prayer and invitation to the beloved dead who wish to be part of this divination. My home receives daily doses magical attention and so stating the intention behind my divination is enough for me to get started, though you may want to do something else. Please use your intuition to decide what feels best.

Once your space is ready, take your deck and place it in front of you. For this spread, I don’t fan the cards out but instead keep them in a single stack of 78 cards.

The first step gives focus to the red poppy on your printout followed by the opening question:

Red Poppy: On this day of remembrance, what do my ancestors want me to remember lest I forget?

To divine an answer or message, start by rolling your dice. Whatever number you roll, which with a traditional set of two dice will be between the numbers 2 and 12, will determine the amount of cards you are going to select. Draw from the top of your deck until you reach the number rolled. For example, draw 9 cards if your dice total comes to 9. The 9th selected card is the card you will lay over the red poppy and it will stand for what your ancestors want you to remember on this day. Set the remaining 8 cards aside and return to your dice and deck. Repeat this roll-to-card-draw divination for the remaining four questions:

Purple Poppy sent to the animals of war: What would you like me to remember lest I forget?

Black Poppy sent to ancestors who were people of color and conscientious objectors: What do you want me to remember least I forget?

Red Khadi Poppy sent to minorities of war: What do you want me to remember lest I forget ?

White Poppy sent to all casualties of war with emphasis given to the overlooked: What do you want me to remember lest I forget?

Once you’ve selected and placed five cards in their five positions, take some time to reflect on your divination. This is a good opportunity to simply listen in to see if anything else wants to come through. I also like to use this time to look for possible themes, or a collective message. Does your selection reveal five distinct messages, or do the cards share similarities in design like numbers, suits, atmosphere, etc.?  What is being asked to be remembered through these similarities?

To extend the divination you can also ask how you can best be a vehicle for remembrance with the following question:

What action can I take that will inspire peace in myself, my family, ancestry, community, world and beloved dead?

Create your own questions that inspire reconciliation, cooperation and the promotion of peace through action.

Here are a few lines from a prayer I try to recite daily which is an excellent way for understanding that peace starts with me. It comes from A Guide to the Bodhisattva’s Way of Life by Shantideva, a Buddhist master from the monastic university of Nalanda, India and composed in the eighth century.

May the frightened cease to be afraid and those bound be freed.

May the powerless find power, and may people think of benefiting each other.

For as long as space remains, for as long as sentient beings remain, until then may I too remain to dispel the miseries of the world.

May your day of remembrance bring great peace to you and your ancestors.

Archetypal Ancestors using the

Charming Dead Oracles Kit

 

 

Price Includes the Charming Dead Oracles Kit!

Want the kit only? Visit here.

 

 

The Charming Dead Oracles kit and course are built upon the deeper archetypal structures of the Universe that pattern the world we live in. When actively prompted, these forces can awaken deep primordial forms that shape our lives and world. Many mediums find it difficult to recognize the when, how and why one of these archetypes take form. For this reason, the core of this course will give focus to pinpointing, navigating and re-structuring the archetypal drive that influences the living.

In our ongoing research and work with mediumship, we have identified 10 common archetypes that diviners and sitters eventually meet up with. We reveal how entering and exploring 10 universal portals that house these archetypes can unearth and capture how they manifest as spirit-friend or foe, and psyco-spiritual behaviors often absorbed and expressed by the living.

This course expands our work with charm casting to help divine broader possibilities for sacred communication, acceptance, healing and closure. This set includes an additional  number of tools for establishing and offering new techniques while opening portals between the seen and unseen:

  • A 54 card pocket deck: Each card in the Charming Dead deck houses 2 unique symbols that trigger a poetic dialogue often communicated through the Archetypal Dead

  • A Mercury dime pendulum for reading the direction and movement of the archetypal environment from the Otherside

  • A 67 piece, metal charm casting kit with a six-sided die that reads the who, what, why, where, when and how of the Archetypal Dead’s messages

  • An Archetypal Dead casting cloth for pinpointing, understanding and navigating the love of thousands

  • A hand made, Charming Dead Blessing Oil charged and blessed to protect, attract and open channels of communication

  • All items are packed in a customized cigar box, topped with the Charming Dead Oracles logo and sealed with a magically charged thread

 

All live classes take place through Zoom, a free-to-you virtual classroom you can access through your phone, tablet, or computer. All materials will be recorded and you will be able to download the files within 24 hours of the live class. Subtitling will be offered for those who desire it within 3 days of the live class.
