Interview With a Tarot Master: Lumina

Describe how you first found out about your psychic abilities.

I remember my first experience vividly. I was riding the bus from 1st grade to home. I broke into a panic and ran to the front of the bus screaming at the driver to slow down. He looked at me like I was nuts but complied. Just as he slowed down a car came flying out of their driveway right in front of us. The driver was able to stop and avoid a terrible accident. I didn’t know what was about to happen just that something bad was coming.

It was difficult growing up with these abilities. Back then it was all considered “devils work” and still is in some circles. I was called a witch… and not a good witch. Most people were afraid of me.

My mom always called her gifts “Mother’s intuition.” She only used her abilities to tell when something was happening to her children. I remember one night I woke with a fever and got up to go to the bathroom. My room was very small, maybe 3 steps to the door. When I stood up I took one step and passed out. My mom caught me before I hit the floor. Now keep in mind it was the middle of the night, and she had to go from her room, through the living room, kitchen, around the corner to the hallway and into my room. Yeah Mother’s intuition alright! She was an amazing woman who left me with my psychic abilities, a love of gardening and poetry as well as her strength and determination.

What have you done to develop your abilities?

I was lucky enough to study briefly under Fred Mansbridge in VA. He taught me how to focus on positive events as well as negative so that my readings are balanced, not just doom and gloom. He also let me know that I could see auras and taught me the meanings of colors, encouraging me to develop healing skills. He guided me to start reading books by particular authors, and to not fear what I was experiencing. He helped me understand that just because I felt someone’s heart attack, that I was not having one myself. He also helped me understand that an out-of-body experience is not possession or death. Thank goodness for him, when I woke up in a panic floating on the ceiling, a call to him helped me understand the experience.

I taught myself the tarot. I needed something to give form to what I was sensing or feeling. Many things came to me in dreams but I couldn’t tell clients “Let me sleep on it”. So I tried several different means of divination. Cards worked most effectively for me. I went through many different decks and finally settled on the Tarot of The Ages. This deck truly speaks to me.

Crystals started showing up in my home, which was my cue to learn about them. I now use them to help balance the chakras.

I am also a 2nd level Reiki Master

Describe your skills.

I use the Tarot primarily. When I spread the cards, I run my hand over the tops until I feel intense heat in my palm. That is the correct card to pick. I continue this until the spread is complete. Additional cards are pulled in the same manner as other questions come up. I also hear messages from guides and occasionally someone who once had a body. If an energy of a loved one shows up I feel it as running chills coursing through me. I will sometimes feel symptoms of how they crossed over to help identify them. It is rare when this happens but such a blessing for all parties involved including myself.
I also use numerology to give me an idea of what kind of year my client is having. Full natal or relationship numerology readings are time intensive but are available if requested.

Are you able to turn your psychic abilities ‘on’ or ‘off’ when you want to?

I generally do not focus on reading people unless asked. I feel it is rude to do so. The only time I use my abilities without permission is if I feel endangered. It took a long time to learn how to tune out. I had trouble being in large crowds, such as restaurants or festivals because I would feel so much energy and emotion from everyone around. It was overwhelming. But now I simply focus intensely on what I am doing and shut out everyone around me. Even so, I can only be in large crowds for short periods of time before it becomes uncomfortable or I develop a headache.

Do you think anyone can develop psychic skills?

Yes I think anyone can develop psychic skills. Like playing the piano, some people are natural virtuosos, others might not get far beyond chopped sticks. However, if you are open to all possibilities and work consistently anyone can increase their sensitivity.

What do you like best about working with PsychicNetworkers?

I love the fact that you can watch me work. It is the next best thing to being there in person. Because we can talk there is a natural flow to the readings. The energy exchange is incredible! This format allows for a connection between psychic and client like no other format. Plus, because you can see me pull cards you can see my process and know what I am seeing is legitimate.

Do you get readings for yourself?

I do read for myself. When I first started learning the tarot I only had myself to experiment on. I would track my results to check my accuracy. It was really great because I learned to be unbiased and neutral about what I saw. It was hard at first because I wanted to see what I wanted to see which wasn’t always what I was being shown. Now I am neutral and unattached to what I see which allows accuracy in my readings for myself and others. You have to be unattached to the results to read accurately. I understand that nothing is ground in stone. The whole point of a reading to make changes where necessary to keep your life on track. It is important therefore, to read honestly. If I don’t like what I see coming I make the necessary changes to create the outcome I want. I try to help all my clients to do the same.

Is there anything else you would like to share about your abilities?

It has taken a while for my guides and myself to find a comfortable ways to communicate. They used to appear to me. They would come at the oddest of times, in strangest ways and scare me half to death. I had one hovering over me about 6 inches from my face when I woke in the morning. I was confused as to what was happening or what I was seeing and then he smiled. I suppose that smile was supposed to comfort me. But instead I leaped out of bed and fell on the floor. After I recovered my heart from my throat, I fell out laughing. But I did ask that we find another way. After that I went through a year of hearing tests. All of a sudden I would hear an incredibly loud high pitch tone in my right ear. I did not understand so I had tests done for hearing, and tinnitus but I was fine. So I started responding to it. I heard the tone and raised my hand and lo and behold it started to decrease in volume until it was gone. I raised my hand a gain. This went on periodically throughout the year with both ears. Then I started hearing their thoughts. Now they chime in during readings. It is like hearing thoughts that are not my own that are pertinent to my client. It is really a lovely relationship. I appreciate their patience in working with me to develop this form of communication.
