Feiticeiros e Magistas, mas uma vida comum

Algumas coisas parecem impossíveis. Ou é apenas a maneira de fazer?
Arte: Impossible nail-through-wood trick - by Steve Ramsey.



Feiticeiros e Magistas, mas uma vida comum

Estava lendo alguns comentários humorísticos num site da internet que se dedica justamente a observar como certas situações na área da magia são realmente engraçados dependendo do ponto de vista e algumas postagens as vezes tem um teor mais crítico ou bem incisivo.
Em todo caso acho interessante lembrar uma coisa absolutamente simples: nós somos pessoas normais e até comuns.
Quer dizer, pelo menos eu certamente me considero uma pessoa bem normal e comum de uma forma geral.
Vejamos, eu tenho todo tipo de problemas que a maioria das pessoas tem, independente do país em que vivem.
Nalguns países existem muito mais problemas é claro, mas de uma forma geral, eu posso afirmar que ter problemas pessoais, familiares, financeiros, sexuais, políticos, saúde ou porque seu time esportivo favorito está perdendo de novo o campeonato, etc. é algo que faz parte de nossa vida humana.
Mas então as pessoas observam que somos praticantes e estudiosos das artes ocultas. Os grandes mistérios e praticamos atividades em magia que podem revelar maravilhas ou nos colocar em contato com algumas coisas horripilantes.
Porém seria isso algo tão diferente assim?
Ter as vezes visões maravilhosas ou enxergar garras monstruosas aparecendo de entre as árvores enquanto caminhamos na rua só porque nos metemos nalguma confusão seria algo tão perturbador assim?
Sim, isso pode acontecer.
E qual é o problema?
Eu sinceramente acho muito mais engraçado as pessoas passarem na frente da banca de jornais e ali estarem estampadas as barbaridades que os políticos fazem! (risos).
Será que lidar com os demônios da Goetia é algo tão terrível assim para sermos até perseguidos as vezes por certas religiões e igrejas enquanto alguns ministros destes mesmos grupos chutam a pontapés um inocente cachorro abandonado na rua só porque estava na porta da igreja deles? E aqui citando uma situação que eu vi pessoalmente e amaldiçoei eles aos gritos no mesmo momento.
E infelizmente algo muito comum são os autoproclamados “muito bons” que encontramos em qualquer área da vida. Apresentam-se superconfiantes, plenamente resolvidos, fazem um marketing incrível sobre si mesmos. Mas é apenas uma máscara, portanto em seu trabalho também falta a verdade.
Mas geralmente nós é quem somos considerados diferentes.
Por ter um interesse por aprender mais sobre esse imenso Universo em que vivemos.
Depois por acreditar que a vida humana é muito mais do que nossos meros problemas comuns.
E aqui de novo, é claro que nós também estamos sujeitos as mesmas Leis Naturais.
A diferença é que não nos conformamos com uma vida limitada.
Aqueles que buscam o aprendizado e a prática das ciências ocultas também estarão vivendo dentro dessa mesma realidade e buscando por mudanças.

Os Doze Ciclos da Verdade para que a Paz se Manifeste.

Os Doze Ciclos da Verdade para que a Paz se Manifeste

Faz tempo que penso em escrever sobre um aspecto citado no livro da Jamie Sams, chamado "As Cartas do Caminho Sagrado" (Ed. Rocco) que além de oráculo considero muito interessante para auto-conhecimento e aprendizado.
Basicamente o livro e suas cartas abordam os ensinamentos de vários povos nativos norte-americanos.
O aspecto que quero citar é da carta "Roda do Arco-Íris", que fala da Unidade e Consciência da Totalidade.




Enquanto eu preparava este material, Brother Moloch publicou um excelente artigo, Lying About the Truth (Mentindo sobre a verdade) onde comenta sobre as mentiras do mundo e como acabam fazendo parte de nossas vidas e a maneira com que lidamos com ela.

Aqui eu quero comentar sobre a busca da verdade como parte de um caminho pessoal.


Os Doze Ciclos da Verdade para que a Paz se manifeste.

A tradução da edição brasileira infelizmente omite uma destas e por isso cito aqui o mesmo, mas extraído de uma entrevista com uma famosa anciã do povo Seneca,  a Vovó Twylah Hurd Nitsch.
"Meu avô me ensinou a seguir os Doze ciclos da verdade e os caminhos da paz para preservar minha totalidade e me ajudar a caminhar em equilíbrio e cumprir a missão da minha vida. Eles são: aprender a Verdade, honrar a Verdade, conhecer a Verdade, ver a Verdade, ouvir a Verdade, falar a Verdade, amar a Verdade, servir a Verdade, viver a Verdade, trabalhar a Verdade, compartilhar a Verdade e ser grato por a verdade. O Caminho da Paz está vivendo em harmonia com esta filosofia antiga ".

Eu conheci este livro nos anos 90, e como não tinha acesso a edição original, acabei por procurar qual seria a parte faltante e concluí que seria "ser verdadeiro". Mas a a parte que faltava, só muito depois descobri ser "ouvir a verdade". Ser verdadeiro é apenas um resultado da aplicação em nossa vida destes aspectos.
Ouvir a verdade. Leia os itens acima novamente. Pode parecer um pequeno detalhe mas isto fez muita diferença para mim. E é a partir daqui que continuo este texto.



Muitas pessoas associam o ocultismo com espiritualismo ou que sejam parte de alguma religião.
Mas não é bem assim.
O ocultismo basicamente é uma linha de estudo e práticas a respeito do paranormal, etc. e que não necessariamente faz parte das tradicionais linhas científicas e até mesmo é proibido em certas religiões.
É o estudo do oculto, aquilo que não é revelado de forma mundana. Sugiro que você se divirta procurando primeiro de tudo, os significados mais básicos nos dicionários formais de seu idioma. Só depois olhe e compare as muitas definições que vai encontrar nos muitos livros dessa área.

Muitas áreas do ocultismo são também parte das linhas espiritualistas e tantas religiões.
Daí ser normal uma certa confusão em relação ao significado e aplicação destas palavras.

Para praticar magia não precisa ser espiritualista ou meditar.
Da mesma forma, uma pessoa espiritualista pode não aceitar a magia.
E uma pessoa religiosa pode considerar a magia algo normal. Vide as religiões africanas, Taoistas ou simplesmente o uso dos Salmos nas tradições de origem cristãs.
E ao mesmo tempo, mesmo pessoas destas religiões não aceitam a magia por algum motivo.

Assim temos a magia baseada em espíritos, anjos, divindandes, etc. tanto quanto existe uma linha chamada de "modelo psicológico" da magia, em que seus praticantes não acreditam na existência de espíritos e acham que tudo está dentro da mente das pessoas.
Pessoalmente eu discordo do modelo psicológico por experiência pessoal. Citando um comentário de Rufus Opus, seria preciso ser muito narcisista para pensar que todo Universos já está dentro da mente da própria pessoa.

A maneira como percebemos as coisas tem a ver com o nosso próprio desenvolvimento nas diversas áreas da vida.
Assim, mesmo que não seja espiritualista, de alguma maneira os ocultistas também vão ter um desenvolvimento nessa área mesmo que não sigam certas práticas ou busquem por isso. Apenas vai ser algo que vai acontecer com o tempo a medida que aprendem mais, estudam e passam a observar tantas coisas relativas ao mundo e suas energias que assim acabam por ter também um desenvolvimento nestes aspectos.


E assim falamos de desenvolvimento pessoal.
Eu tenho uma linha espiritual que começou primeiro pelos aspectos mentalistas, cartesianos. Livros, estudos, práticas que podem ser feitas até de forma mecânica se houver todo o necessário esforço e aprendizado para isso.
Mas ao mesmo tempo, fui percebendo que isso estava relacionado a energias do mundo e apesar de ter dificuldades em fazer uma conexão entre resultados e as coisas que observava, já percebia que havia algo mais, as forças espirituais. Apenas não sabia como lidar com elas e continuei por muito tempo usando a minha mente, como principal canal de manifestação, mesmo que já tivesse uma percepção quanto a outras forças atuantes no universo.
Certamente minha vida era bem mundana e com tanta informação certamente era um estranho lidar com as pessoas nessa vida em busca de outros horizontes.
Então descobri a meditação e meu Mestre e fiz uma guinada drástica na minha vida da noite para o dia. Uma experiência que já relatei nos foruns de magia. 

O principal foi perceber que o único que poderia mudar era a mim mesmo. E começou a grande caminhada descobrindo a cada dia outros aspectos e pontos de vista a serem estudados e conhecidos.
Aprendi a meditar, observar o mundo, a quebrar dogmas e paradigmas que eu carregava comigo tanto pela formação social e familiar, quanto pelos meus próprios estudos que até então apenas tinham sido informação que eu não sabia realmente como usar.
Meditação tornou-se parte da minha vida assim como estar aberto a experiência, não aquela das crenças, mas minhas próprias experiências. Descobrir o novo, questionar, aprender, observar e experimentar. É por isso que digo que falo a partir de minhas próprias vivências. Eu gosto de estudar, sempre tive paixão pelos livros, por estudar outras vidas e como as pessoas conseguiram seus resultados. Mas isso é informação que pode ser útil certamente, mas quando você mesmo faz suas experiências arrisca-se a descobrir outros aspectos e novos horizontes.

E perceber o quanto a magia está relacionada a isso nos seus múltiplos aspectos.
Ver, ouvir, respeitar, ser grato, etc.

Como citei ao início, a magia para mim também é parte da busca espiritual, de uma maneira de viver e sentir a vida. Um ponto de vista pessoal certamente, pois continuo sendo um buscador do eterno, de perceber a vida em todos seus aspectos e a magia é para mim uma maneira de nos ligarmos ao todo, em suas múltiplas manifestações.



Novamente vemos como certas denominações tem mais de um sentido, como por exemplo a Alquimia, que tanto é uma área da magia quanto também se refere a alquimia interior, a transformação espiritual.


Assim nos tornamos ativos em relação a existência e não apenas mero espectadores.

Depois de muitas vivências nestas décadas, percebi que algo estava faltando quando busquei os doze ciclos da verdade como algo a trabalhar em mim mesmo.
E foi justamente o citado ao início: "ouvir a verdade". Eu percebia as coisas, procurava observar os aspectos. Mas de uma certa forma não estava realmente ouvindo. E por causa disso, tantas vezes eu pensei ter sido vítima de minha própria compaixão ao permitir que tantas coisas acontecessem ou fossem feitas em relação a mim, até mesmo me prejudicando.
Mas na verdade, eu estava recebendo a informação, mas não estava "ouvindo".
Portanto, não foi apenas compaixão. Foi não dar a necessária atenção ao que me era apresentado.
E certamente fiz muitas escolhas e tomei decisões erradas e que afetaram primeiro a mim e noutras vezes as pessoas que eu amava.
Ouvimos as coisas e ainda assim, optamos por diversas razões, a seguir outras opções. Chame isso de compaixão, paciência ou escolhas pessoais. Mas seguir o caminho do "bem" as vezes também significa ter que agir contra aqueles que buscam nosso mal. 

O importante é manter a busca para realizar em nossa própria vida estes doze ciclos da verdade.

Um único aspecto pode fazer muita diferença em tudo o que vamos descobrir e aprender. São as bases para que tenhamos raízes sólidas naquilo que fazemos.

Isso tem muito a ver com a própria Roda da Vida do Tarot quando nos apresenta seus aspectos evolutivos e involutivos e faz parte do processo de cura de nossos aspectos pessoais para uma vida harmoniosa.

Quando deixamos de perceber algum aspecto, ou fazemos escolhas, isso pode até nos desviar de nosso caminho e teremos outras experiências que por um lado vão adicionar mais informações sobre o que podemos entender como certo ou errado, ou como adequadas ou não aos objetivos maiores que tenhamos em vida.

Mas o principal é nunca desistir de buscar a verdade. E ser grato por ela.

Free Online or Doing Readings For Yourself With Quality

Giorello by Araminta.

Free Online or Doing Readings For Yourself With Quality

Many times in life we need to do a reading for ourselves or get a free reading.

Be sure I needed it a lot of times as I'm a normal human being and sometimes I was not able to pay for a professional work with the ones I respect a lot due their vision.

At another post I comment more about Reading for Yourself. How Ensure Objectivity in Personal Readings?

Now I will add more about and using thre readings at internet or something elese. 


When we have a personal reading the first is the ideas about how the symbols are presented by someone else doing it for us. And since the beginning in the 70s, I used to observe the cards and symbols to get what they was looking for. So I was looking to the cards and symbols presented, not just to the person behind me. This helped me to learn very early about the "general image" idea for a reading, not just the former texts, but how that was like a kind of "scenario" to the situation presented.
As I had working for my spiritual developmente early, with time I was able to "sense" when there was a real "ray of light" coming from some spiritual level or not.
Since the first readings I had, I loved a lot the ones where I learned about what their was doing just observing the way and how some shown to be so great. Like to learn how to do a great reading just using only one card and I posted about at the post "Extreme Tarot Readings and Some of The Art Behind It".

A great Oracle/Tarot reading is not that one when you only listen "easy words", but when it really present what you need to know, why and for what. Another reason with time I found to work in my personal works to study and develop myself to present "guidance", instead of just talking about current events nor to be limited to the symbols I get during a reading.


Reading for yourself. Keep out of the interpretation!

When we do a reading for ourselves the better is to work as doing a reading to someone else, an unknown one.

Why? Think for a moment.

May be the first problem reading for yourself is the "lust for results"?

No! The first matter, not a problem is you need to have courage to deal with it.

Courage! You must be like a spiritual warrior after your own freedom, your life!

To many people (adepts of sin IMHO) talk that is not good to try a reading for yourself. Some texts I had read even goes really worst and try to say it's like a "sin" if you do a reading for yourself.

I fully disagree. 


The main challenge is when you do a reading for yourself, and too often you will be lusting for results.
We are humans, so why not have the desire for a "nice reply"? But is needed to be ready to accept things can be different and so have the needed courage to accept it.



The same as using an online tool for a reading at internet, this means you must be able to be apart, and think more about what you got.

So, always get the first reading to study. Be using your own cards or an online tool.

Think about this phrase: "if you want to see, be ready to what you get".

For sure there are a lot of bad online tools. Or better, there's a lot of really very bad online tools.
Not much different if you is not skilled at oracle reading and try using it by yourself without studying more.

If you are studying an oracle and doing your own reading, never feel shame to have your books aside to research more about what you get.
If you are not using such online tools, you is the one taking the cards, uhmmm, not really the same. You have to get the first cards and meditate serious about what you got.
This is a personal reading. Have the courage to accept what you are getting.

Courage is needed to do your own path in life.
Is needed to remember each own may have a personal war to deal, so what is really big to someone may appears easy to another.


No matter if is a personal reading done by yourself or an online reading. You must observe your first feelings about until you get confidence even at your guts too,



This is the basic to have some idea about doing a reading for yourself.

Reading machine from the Big movie.

Some Online Oracles

Now I will cite some online oracle tools I found with these years and I really like that.

My main suggestions is: Always take the first reading, no matter if you dislike it.
Ok, I found some online tools will be extreme wrong, and this is how I got the list I will present bellow. Meanwhile, as you do your own experiences, you must use a different online tool to check, never the same.

But do not repeat the same asking to the same oracle. The only acceptable is asking: "please, explain the previous message"or "please, explain more about such aspect show".
BUT never, never ask a new reading for the same question, be at your own reading or an oracle online tool.


For an interesting point I observed to be very serious: the I-Ching, no matter how you use it, when people want to ask the same thing again, it is very famous to present a warning reply about "not being serious".

Even at former personal oracle readings we are under the same rules about get what is show.



So do not abuse of personal nor online oracles.


Now I will cite some I have been working and I really like the results.

Each one is specific and must be used with respect.

Note: The same way I always evoke the spirits for a reading to any oracle I use, I always do the same when using any of the following oracles.
This means, yes, I raise my hands and do my evocation for higher spiritual guidance.
I really found a lot of difference doing that as the reading becomes very formal.


Some websites I rated to be near 100% and I suggest for different works or areas:

Here I give my testimony: I have used the following ones for years with near Zero error when compared (even for checking) against my inner vision and my personal formal readings about the events related.

To repeat: The following ones I give my personal near 100% about quality:

Fourthdimension's Crowley Thoth On-line Tarot Reading - I love this. This is a formal celtic cross spread with the original texts for each card. The website do no tries to comment the reading, just present the original text. A great site when you have not your deck and want to read by yourself. Be sure to pay atention HOW the cards are selected, here is why I love it! It's a formal AC suggested reading, since the first card to show what area the question is related due the former method.

I CHING ONLINE - Fantastic! To me, the best I-Ching site. I stronggly suggest to remember I-Ching have proper rules (cited at the site). I'm using the I-Ching since the 70's so I observed the same to happens: if you start arguing, the oracle will give direct messages about your intents or ideas.... This is the formal I-Ching way to piss you.
Really a great site. The random aspect goes out as you is the one on controle to press the key to get each line (I use this method always).
Realy very good material.
One I suggest for donnations too. A few from each one will help them to keep the great work.

Egyptian Tarot using Kier cards - Portuguese version (better use)
Egyptian Tarot using Kier cards - English version
This is a site for Egyptian tarot readings with the Kier editors cards. Very good! I don't know the author in person, she is Nelise Carbonare Vieira, but presents a very nice work and also is suitable for personal readings with her (recommended).
Note: I found the english version very simple compared with the english one. Appears to work the same way, just not so nice as the portuguese version. Ok people, please remember not all of us have the time to make two entire websites, OK? She deserves my respect also.
The main website is in portuguese, so do your homework and use Google Translator, no troubles here.
The random reading to me always was really very Ok. All cards I got have been direct into the question.
The material is very good; She also have a very complete book about the use of this deck plus all cards study and all of that is available even to study online if you have patience. Or give the merit and buy the ready PDF with all that, really a bargain.
The egyptian Kier deck is a wide source to study and to the ones already on the Tarot and more the Egypt deck, will find the presented cards use to be really very accordingly the question asked.

The llewellyn Tarot Reading
Feel free to call me stupid. I don't know how to reach this since the initial website page! So save this link!
This is a great one, with the choice for eight different deck plus different spreads.
Here something I observed, and this is related with each deck.
Each deck was created for a different vision, so you MAY be carefull to remember each one is related to a very different spirits area.
For example, I use to call the Celtic Dragons to present their wisdom. Hey, Dragons! To often they have no compassion and will present the really crude aspects you have to learn.
The Llewellyn deck use to be the formal tarot and is always Ok.
The Witches tarot is just this. Very good when you are dealing with magic wars or just witches acting, even if this is yourself. So, just a witches point of view.
The Fairy Ring is fantastic to show when something at any magic areas is acting. This includes the areas you have not training. This option also have been good when the source is ATR (African Traditional Religions) or is related with spirits of dead.

My suggestion is to explore each one as you found better.



These are my personal main suggestions, result from years searching and trying.


To finish: Please, reread my previous comments about how to read for yourself. To be simple, do your prayer to open the gate and get the first reply. Do it with courage.

Receiving Oracle Skills by Initiation.

Be sure giving the Key is not a physical act only.
Photo: Unknown author.


Receiving Oracle Skills by Initiation.

OR

How become instantly good with oracles due some occult supernatural ways. 


Learning a more complex oracle, like the Tarot, Runes, I-Ching, etc. is something that demand study, practice, research in other related areas according with the oracle being studies, etc.

Just to make simple comment, I'm using more the Tarot as an example. 
The first most people learn is a general meaning to each card, rune and some basic spreads to place the cards and have some kind of reply. Most of people don't do much more and only expect to be using their own natural intuition for that.
Even if the person have a gift of birth like vidence, this does not add so much. All they have are ideas or visions and will deal accordingly their life experience only to understand what they see.
So the next needed is to start a more former study about each card, not only the basic meanings, but some of the idea each card express and how it is related to the others. Is here people start to understand more about the real way the oracle works. This will add a lot to understand the ideas and how intuition may help too, and to get more complex understanding and relations amog

The following, is learning about the inner symbols of the cards, planets, astrological signs, numbers, elemental correspondences and so on.
This is just about technical aspects.
The other to develop is the own intuition capabilities, learn more about other areas to understand more about people, society, etc.
So this is a wide area to study for sure.

There's the possibility to increase that throught initiations. To access other levels and discover more areas and this way improve the reading capability.
For sure this is not something like "instant learning" nor "instant vidence" capabilities. 


Many see initiation just as a rite to get a diploma, many may think this is an instant miracle way for new super-powers.

Initiation at basic levels, is just to become in contact with some kind of knowledge.
This is the human level.

But at the higher spiritual levels, the initiation is a process to receive a kind of key.

You must see the idea of "key" just as something that may connect you to something.

Like opening a door to you.
BUT, see, the door just is opened, you still need to enter by your legs and learn what is behind that point.

Get this? Is not an instant capability.

You will just receive the key, or a connection to a resource at the other realms.
If you was working to prepare for it, for sure you will see results faster, but again, this is why you already have done all the previous needed work.

So you will enter there, entire new realms and possibilities and see by yourself to learn.
Some will have a lot to learn, others will be ready for that.
Anyways, they was in the merit to receive it despite how much practice.
Yes, even without so much practice some people may have the needed merit, just need more hard practice that often happens very fast.

I may give to someone an intiation to an oracle or something else, but still there are the need to work with it, practice and study. Before and after.

This is why some people may receive such initiation and have a jump on their skills: they was just working and was ready to receive a better resource.

And no, no, no, do not even think to ask for that. This is not something to buy too.
Yes, too often some people try and they received only what they deserved... Sorry...
You can buy a diploma, but never the merit or real skills.

I may give such initiations by my own to the ones who deserved the merit. Never to the ones who asked. They was just fooled by themselves.
I give such initiations sometimes, when the disciple/student is really ready.
Some have tryed to be "opportunists" and received just a fake key pointing into their own darkness. Betrayers! They even received a "mystic name" from me. To these ones,, as they are vampires out of light, such names was just what they never had done and what they have to discover to deserve what they asked for. A bill for life at most.
I'm looking at both sides, Uhm?

Remember the phrase: "When te disciple is ready the master comes"?
Is this.
You can't ask for it.
It may happens to you someday if you keep walking and do your own homework.

And this can happens in two basic ways:
1) Meeting someone who will give the keys and will be an incredible experience.
2) Astral initiation. Uhm something like at someday or night, you receive a vision, or the sky opens up and you see a big flame or spirit/angel and they will give it to you.
Yes, it really happens this way, I had some and will be only yours as you keep the work.

Some formal Orders do a nice work to give the keys to the ready ones . But even there you must do the work.
So, study, practice, take notes, improve yourself. Sometime when you are ready that will happens.

Reading for Yourself. How Ensure Objectivity in Personal Readings? Some notes.

Mirror Gazing. As an oracle too, what you see?
Unkonow photo author.


Someone questioned: I sometimes find it difficult to be objective when we do personal readings. So, my question is: how do you ensure objectivity in personal readings? I usually write it down in the third person as if I were speaking to someone else. Other methods?


My Reply:

At any oracle, Tarot, Runes, etc. a reading to someone else or just for yourself must be objective. 

Think on Meditation and Therapy.

Yes. something I found to be needed is therapy.

So is needed to be as most as possible like a third person, even about yourself. 

Meditation will lead into yourself. And what you will find there? Ego, traumas, a lot of personal problems and even from past lives to deal with.

Well, you can become a hero and deal with all that alone.

But there are a lot of methods that help to learn faster and will help to deal and even cleanup all that mess.

A good therapy is a very valuable resource.

Many schools use that and yes, many cases are well resolved with psychologists.
Ok, have some patience with the psychologists too.  :rofl

Once I got a female psychologist, and I commented to her some of my occult background. The result was funny: she had a real strong fear from me. She always used to keep at the opposite side of the room and each time she gave a reply, she used to say something like "I ask permission to all your degrees to suggest that... blah-blah-blah...". At third meeting she was presenting me some texts and books about the "crazy ones genious in history" and suggesting to introduce psychotropic drugs...  LOL...

So I moved to another one, and just presented what I was in need to work, but no information about occult works. The guy did a fantastic specific work in just [b]two [/b]one hour meetings. Dot.

There are a lot of alternative therapies. As a sannyasin, I did a lot and my Master Osho told just this about, the need of cleaning, improving yourself and to save a lot of time.

Just to note, at the alternative therapies area, there are a lot of formal practices like the ancient Ayurvedic medicine, acupunture, Gurdjeff, etc, etc., that at many western countries still are not formally recognized, even with thousands years of practice.
And there are many workshops to work on specific areas of life, some last 2-3 days and even more, when people usually goes to some place and stay there doing an immersion to work that. For sure, the results vary a lot for each one accordingly your concioussness level and what you are working with.

Most of times, the good workshops with formal trained therapists do more in few days than you will get instead of working alone for a long time. Some of that workshops may be at easy levels while others may present workings where you will be really and deep faced with the possibility of dealing with deeper points.
In my specific case, I missed the opportunity to go to Poona in India while Osho was alive for the stupidest reason: a marriage and accepting due the wrong reasons the opinion of my ex-wife. Ok, I paid to learn that. But I never gave up and continued.
I learned that our personal development is above anything. No one will compensate for your work of self-evolution, just yourself.
I remember Osho used to say that when it comes to your own evolution, your personal work of consciousness, you must be selfish. No one will do it for you, only yourself. Ok, you can try to sell your soul, and lack the evolution.  LOL...
This is that always helped a lot to keep my faith, despite all the problems and even at the most difficult times.
So I continued and I had the opportunity to be at a Ashran with my Master in the Andes mountains, an entire month each year for many times in the 90s, and that was an immersive experience of workshops one after other in the mountain and the woods. Each workshopt was 2-3 days of extreme experiences. The ones who was easy got nice results. Yes, always there are a lot of people who are just mystics and so easy. Others who went deep, have meet big results. What about learn to run in the woods, having to climb a mountain running, blindfolded and with instructors actually chasing you and really hard beating you with wood sticks? I say really serious spanking. No masochism, that guys was really great. Think about to run like that in the middle of large bushes full of thorns that hurts a lot. Yes, we did that at very risk places like ravins and pits. Add to this all the spiritual part. And in my case, the contact with spirits I started many times before. If you had read some of Castaneda works, is this I'm talking. Near same kind of teaching. That school had some very related works and this means, no choice to error. Glad we never had see even a broken leg even with all extreme risk. Only many scrapes and cuts on the skin. One teaching I have for myself was if choose to give up facing the problems may hurt more in the rest of your life. I learned to run where there was no way.
Before someone ask, I fully give thanks to the teachings I experienced and did by myself, but the schools become something very soft later, the instructors I knew have gone and today it appears more like a nice SPA resort for rich people after spiritual tourism.  Still a nice place to visit and some of the current soft works can be interesting to who is not after a fashion life style.


When you take the Tarot for you, remember this is about having some better understanding about yourself.

This is what you will find in a personal reading. You.

Are you ready to look to yourself?


Something I disagree with others is about consider all posible card interpretations. As an oracle reader, you must develop your vision and have just one interpretation to each case.
For sure, this take time to learn, with practice and study.

But what is the right answer? Usually the first idea you get in your mind. Not what you get one second later.
You must be able to get the first impression, like a "flash" of light. That is the reply when working with any oracle.

But you is the one who have to accept what you see.

And trust me, by personal experience, this can be painfull sometimes, just because what the oracle sometime will point is not what you want.


To give an idea as an example too:
A practice I did in the past, is a shamanic method of self healing.
In this case, to heal your eyes if you use glasses.
I use it.
The practice is simple: think the source of the eyes health problems is just because you does not want to see something, nor accept something. In resume, our eyes troubles most often cames due our mind refuse to accept what is seen. This is the general idea.
So you have to compromise yourself and say: "I accept to see and I want to see all I don't want to see".
It's a daily practice. I removed my glasses more and more until I was for many months without wearing glasses.
BUT, see, I started to see a lot I was not wanting to see.
This means, you will see the world, the people, your life, any aspects.

And I became to suffer with that.
I already commented about not being masochist in another posts during personal healing practices nor at any therapy.
Well, after many months I was seeing too much about everything. My senses and visions about people and anything extended to a level I was really unaware to deal. I found a lot more behind all that I was not seeing. Most that was not important to solve nor desirable.
So I stopped with it. And yes, I'm kept fully aware from all that if needed.

Well, the Dalai Lama wear glasses, uhm?


Ok, this is one idea. You may use the oracle and ask to see.
This is why is a very good idea always to do a prayer and invoke a specific angel/spirit/deity to work with you on the reading.
This way you are not only on your knowledge as they will talk with you, develop your intuition.

But you have to ask to see and work to be able to accept what you see, no matters how much you dislike it.

Be sure my human part really hate many readings I do for myself.
One more reason sometimes I ask to others to do a reading for me, even beginners.
My human part need a check, no matters how good I know to be on my oracles and all the feedback I receive, still is my human part, and our mind can cheat us.




The lust for results.

This is one very important aspect about "personal readings": lust for results.

A good reply is when the oracle point a "no way" result.
Ok, you must be able to accept the reply and what is shown. Or be stupid to follow even when the oracle show a problem if you continue.

But there is something that can drive any one into nuts.

So, as I remember for now, there are at least two replies we may get from the oracle that we really dislike:
"Not yet".
"Wait. Things are going to change".

That is a shit!
And why?

You are doing all you can, using all teachings you received while working to change or make something happens.
And you deep need or want that to happens.

Here, the only I have to say is: have patience.

Oh shit!!!!

But sometimes is very hard to have patience when all kind of troubles are knocking at your door.
Or you are working for a long time to get something.

There's something to do?
Yes. One thing I learned is to be humble and talk to others who are on the path. The people who you know are already doing the work.
Remember, you are not alone.

May be some day you will be so high you will be be alone in the highest mountain.
And guess what? You won't be alone if you remember you can talk with the trees, the birds, the mountain himself.
They will talk with you too, just learn to listen.

Birds like to do gossip. This is what they are doing at the trees in the morning and at the eventide.
One more reason I have a place with food to the birds in my garden. They comment about everything they see in the town.
Pay attention to them. Is a way to learn their language.

But anyways, we are humans. I'm not so leveled up to just let any worry.

I survived to many hard events. But I'm human.
Glad I had people to talk with.
And always my full thanks to all who have helped, that is really priceless and never will be forgotten.



So to resume about your personal readings: work to cleanup your life history, develop your intuition, be ready to listen and as possible, get the first message and have a second view from someone else to compare with your results.
This will add power to your readings for other people too as you discover the best is to be clear with them about yourself.
If  you are clear, no masks, you will be objective and people will discover you is a normal person too. I have the same problems most people have, at all areas, be sure. I just had a lot of experiences that become part of my practices and learning and I can share this without fear.
Discovering yourself is part of becoming true.

Be True

Fun Time In Our Secret Neverland
Art by Perry Gunawan - Indonesia

Be True

Teachings of a life.


Always tell the truth.
Be true, even if it takes decades for someone to listen.
If that is real, it’s your truth.
No matter what's happens tell the truth.
A lie need a coward weak foundation.
The truth only need one time.
The lie need to be recreated and feed daily.
Lie need the weak foundations where to feed from
Lie need feed all the time but one day the truth will be revealed.
So persevere when you work for the truth.
If what you do and say is true, it will never be different and will be revealed.
Be true to yourself and always be true throughout your walk.
Only then you will he reap the greatest of all prizes: that of having a true life.

How Long Maybe a Tarot Reading?

Amazing Climatic Changes.....

How Long Maybe a Tarot Reading?


"When you are after replies to your doubts, or exploring the misteries to get more knowledge there's not such thing as so big or so small.

All that matters when you got what you needed and not just what you wanted at start."


I got a new record in a tarot reading: lots of pages of text.
Often I add pictures of the cards I’m reading, but this time my camera is broken. And was not a case to copy the same cards images from somewhere else as I did when the client will be able to get more ideas or information from the images.
This was just a Standard type reading, without commenting the numerology related aspects that would add a lot more. Even so, at some part I did a minor citation about in case the person may want to learn more about himself.
Usually I try to be at 10 pages range in a standard reading. Some resulted at 15-18 pages and was a lot until now in my way of working. But this was really big.

Each person is different.

This case was even something simple when I took the initial One Main card. I have an option for such reading. The problem become when I start to comment that and explore in detail the aspects.
The matter was even a normal life question, but the client was on need to understand more the aspects, and this is what I’m working for, not just a reply, but add information to the client understand and be able to walk by himself.
This is why I say my work is first for guidance.
Even when the reading is for explore about some work on magic, I have to explain why and what I’m think is possible to do. There’s things people can do by themselves while at other times, I found is correct to explain what is I’m suggesting to work and why and how that will be related for going after for a result.
Just to remember, nobody can assure guarantee results in magic and this is clear stated and explained at the “Readings and workings” page.
Would be easy to me just say… “oh yes, this is so and so and I suggest this or that”.
But no.

See, I’m working alone, far away from the client. This is not a live talking to ask questions or get more information. I’m just working with my own vision plus the Tarot or any other oracle I found suitable to someone anywhere in the world. The same way I need to trust on my guts I found needed to explain what I’m seeing the better way.
And I can’t got quiet when I’m talking with a client, or as usuall, I’m just writing to someone really far away (99,99% most of my clients live far and at other countries). So as my main work is guidance and I’m seeing there’s information the person does not get by himself or have a need to learn more about what I’m talking.
By learning, I say I will try to teach and suggest personal aspects to observe and how to deal with that, areas to explore and study in life. A reason any magic work is under my discretion.

Another simple reason, is my work is not cheap, so I’m not just adding words to make the proposal to be “nice”, but because there’s the need to understand a bit more about what we do and why some works goes easy from hundreds to many thousand dollars value. Such works are not just golden pills to use and when suggested, some may result even in a long working time from myself and even risks evolved, for example, if someone ask me to enter in a kind of war due some reason in their interest this may result in some kind of backfire I have to be prepared to deal. And some works means just years, in a step by step practice.

A really long Tarot reading.That may happens.
So the size of a reading is to present the best I can, and also because I don't bill just for some specific ritual, but for a goal for each one suggested. Sometimes a ritual will lead to another, may need to be repeated for a time, add more others, etc. Talking about the learning path, is always a good practice to ask to the spirits I'm calling what's their suggestion or even they do by themselves, so I have to move to another area and usually that is by me only.  For sure I always notify my clients the possibility for billing for something more when and only I found (and clear explain why) such thing will be really out of any previous measures. Until today, never needed such thing BUT I need to notify the possibility and at same time, I'm very glad and give thanks at some very extreme cases when my older clients offered by themselves additional values like a big gift as they recognizes all the additional works done.

The size of a reading for sure is not all. It’s the contents that matters.
A funny aspect, is when I'm doing revisions of the text trying to make it short, and the result is to add even more material. LOL...

As a personal example, sometimes I paid for readings to myself, as I like to have another opinions and so I received formal readings from people I respect a lot, Many was like some phrases and others also was a bit large. But that was all Ok too as they knew who I was and didn’t need so much explaining.
To repeat, I like to have another opinions. I’m not at some magic forums just to cheap talk or teaching others, but to listen and learn with many people I respect a lot. So I often check what I’m doing, use different oracles and ask for opinions. This is just because I’m human like your, and no matter I have near zero faults at readings for more than two decades, does not means I see all and does not means my opinion and experience was the better, but I'm sure about what I have seen.
Someday I expect to find something I really don’t know how to deal and need to learn and I’m humble to say this: someday I will be wrong too, it’s part of our spiritual and magic learning too.
I got cheated too many times mainly due my compassion, a hard learning under tears and blood.

When I dream of fairytales

By other side, we see readings so much generic, even in the right way, but lacking more information. Not a public critic, just an opinion and with respect to the ones who are able to present very short and precise replies. I just need to talk a lot sometimes and the same way, I see people also deserve more comments accordingly their experience.
For sure, in a normal reading, I don’t need to add all such material, just I like to do and when I can to make it for guidance, I do it.
May be with time I will learn to write more using less words or just make my work so specific so people don’t need so much talking.

I stopped to do live readings a long time ago, this still is a possibility for something like a local “day of readings” when someone hire me to do something like 8-10 readings in a day, one each hour or less. I had in the past 30 minutes readings for an entire day too. It’s very interesting. as I did it in the past, and is a matter of someone prepare a group, care of all expenses and the needed proper place. Usually that are nice spiritual times too as I need to opens up myself for a lot of people, including public talk for a group.

When I talk live, I really talk fast, and this is what I write in a normal reading. This one so big I’m citing at the top of this article is near the same as talking near two hours with someone who I was in need for that and the final text is a resume of that.
For sure, I edit and review my texts to shorten it as cited and too often I add more! 
But for live readings, I found 30-40 minutes use to be the needed for a reading. I can talk even just some 5 minutes at the Extreme Method and present all needed info. Each case is different for sure. Sometimes I will talk 20-30 minutes just about one card or in a brief about the personal numerology.
So when I start writing and expanding what I see to put all that ideas into words, the results may become even such big writings.


Something important to note, because the title of this article, and for sure of interest to anyone doing readings, live or not, and is a common problem with some people who does not respect professional work. I'm talking about a personal reading. Be a live talk or by e-mail as I do. The problem is some people just try abuse and want to ask about everyone in the family, relatives, friends, their company busines and etc. For sure your relationship or if the reading is about your job that is Ok. But add more specific to make a favor to others no. That is always abusive. If you go to a doctor, you pay for each one the doctor will look for. Ok? A formal reading is the same. Many readers are abused this way and that is a shame.


To add some information about the way I do my readings. And how I work to people at any place in the world. (I live in the south of Brazil so get the idea) To be clear, the last personal reading I remember was some 3 years ago for a closer friend. For sure I'm not the only doing this.  
First I'm on my own vision at start. When someone ask a reading I will see the person question or life with my own inner vision. This is personal and very related to my experience in life. Also a reason at forums I reply to someone and cite I'm under my vision. Be sure I don't use any oracles for that.
The same reason I say nobody is invisible at magic. Be a normal person or someone using a nickname in a forum. Always there's a connection to the one who posted a comment.
Second, despite my vision, and to remember I say I'm not perfect, I will call the oracle, the Tarot (or Runes, I-Ching, etc) and also call for the spirits vision too.
Third, I always evoke other spirits to work with. That start with the angels/deities related to the area, plus the client guardian angel (is always neeeded to ask persmission to enter at the person's world). And as needed, any other angels/spirits/daemons related to the question. All they will add information about the questions.
And for sure, all this add to my own vision for sure and I have to measure that.


The most important is to present the needed reply and when I can add information to the client think about, learn as possible and receive suggestions for their lives become better and with knowledge about what’s happening and coming at their personal path.
