While December 21 will not be the end of the world, many people believe the end of the Mayan calendar represents a spiritual shift for the planet. Perhaps we are evolving and, as some people say, raising our planetary vibration. We need it now more than ever.
Traditionally the Winter Solstice is celebrated as the return of the sun. We celebrate Christmas at this time of the year to coincide with the Winter Solstice. Symbolically, all the winter holidays seem to share a common theme: bringing light to the world.
There are many ways in which we all need light in our lives right now. However you celebrate this sacred time of year, my family and I wish you abundant light, healing and happiness, now and in the year to come.
Introducing "Christiana's Psychic Café" on PEN
Last week I was a guest on an internet TV show. This week I will be launching my own internet TV show. It's funny how things like that happen.
I certainly have some broadcast experience. I have been the Resident Psychic of many broadcast radio shows. I was even a morning show co-host on three different FM stations.
I've done reading on network television and been featured on Fox News and Inside Edition.
I've been on other internet TV and radio shows, too.
This is the first time that I have ever had my own show.
The network that is featuring me is PEN,the Paraencounters Network. Watching the shows there is as easy as browsing to the website. You can even participate in the chat room! Try that with your broadcast TV!
My show, "Christiana's Psychic Café," will be a lively show with a variety of segments. I will have short guest segments, and segments like "Tarot Talk," "Meditation Moment" and "Magick and Mayhem."
I will invite viewers to chat in, call in and Skype in to participate in our discussions. I will also be doing a few psychic readings for viewers each week.
The hour-long show will air live every Sunday at 9 pm EST. It will be available worldwide at that time, and then will be archived and available on YouTube.
This Sunday, December 23 will be our first show. We will have a musical guest, Robin Renee, who will play her "Yule Song," a parody of Adam Sandler's "Hanukah Song."
We'll talk about holiday traditions, and about the world that didn't end. In our Tarot Talk segment we'll talk about wonderful tarot decks that contain a single irritating card. And of course I'll be taking your calls and reading for you!
Please don't miss the debut of this show, and please do call in to join the discussion!
Global Tarot Circle met on Thursday, December 13, 2012. We started with a group reading for one of our members.
Our "learning segment" was a short workshop on the numbers of tarot, especially the pips. Each member found a series of three consecutive cards in the Minor Arcana and told the story they saw within those three cards. We discussed keywords for each number, and discussed how the Minor Arcana cards fit those keywords.
Next we looked at ways the tarot could help us choose gifts for those hard-to-shop-for people. We worked together with the tarot to help members of the group decide on the perfect gifts. It is amazing how often a tarot card can inspire something that evokes a statement like "Hey, that's a really good idea!"
Our final exercise was a gift-giving ritual. We each cognitively chose cards to symbolically give to individual members. These cards both expressed our wishes for each person, but also carried the energy to manifest those wishes and turn them into reality.
Traditionally Tarot Circle has always done something fun to commemorate the holidays. This on-line version of Tarot Circle was just as fun and meaningful as an in-person celebration, minus the amazing baked goodies.
Our next Global Tarot Circle we be Thursday, January 17, 2013 at 7:00 pm EST. Everyone with an interest in tarot is welcome to join!
