Hi Tina, I never been told that you need to be gifted to receive you first set of cards. It's probably a belief that people just hold on to. To be honest I chose my first deck of tarot cards as well. No one gave me my first set of cards. Does it make it difficult? Sure it does because you are just learning it and you have to trust what you are receiving as a message. Personally, I have found that my first deck was difficult to read. But I don't feel it was because I picked the deck myself. Anything that you learn for the first time takes practice. So even with cards whether its tarot or oracle cards needs time for a person to get the hang of it. Don't be frustrated with people telling what their beliefs are and don't allow them to stop you from growing and developing whatever areas you want to focus on either. The one thing you should keep in mind is when you decide to learn things on the spiritual level it is important that you build your own belief system that works for you. Finding your own belief system will help develop your gifts stronger as well. SO get out there and explore and be enlightened. The only way you are going learn what is right for you is to go out there check things out for yourself. And don't forget have fun doing it! =) Love and Light, Joy ext 5142

Hi Miss Krystal, Thank you so much for the lovely article. It's great to see all the insights that you have on on this. I have to agree its great being single and there is no shame on it. I have been single myself for 6 years after a 8 year relationship that I ended and I do understand that its hard to not at the fact that your friends are with someone or they are married off and having a family. But what I have come to realize that when the moment will hit me about that special someone it will and I know is patience is definitely a virtue here especially in my case LOL... but nevertheless I love being single because it gives me the freedom to do what I need to do in my life without the constant worry about other people. It gives me the chance to just enjoy being ME! I think that's a key element here for those of us that are very much single. Don't be ashamed of it, instead be proud of it and definitely embrace it to the fullest!

hi Jen, I had to look at my angel deck that we are doing and then I found the Comfort card would fit your situation as Archangel Azrael says " I am with you in your time of need, helping your heart heal." Perfect fitting for you at this time... lots of love and healing to you! I hope things are better this time around for you as well. Hugs, Joy ext. 5142

Hi Jaela, Thank you so much for sharing this wonderful article. I know I have done plenty of psychometry readings before and I find it very fun and enlightening. I remember when I took my metaphysical classes and each one of us had to bring something to share but no one was able to know who brought the item in. Then we would just pick any item in the bag. Then from the there we would feel the item, tried to feel the purpose and history of the item. I also had to identify if the item belonged to a male or female and of course at the end I had to figure which of my classmates it belonged to at the end. I remember holding this ancient coin that was so neat and as I holding it in my hand, the coin was feeling really hot but it had a nice warmth to it. It felt like I was being healed through my body. I explained that this coin promoted some type of healing or the person who owned it was a healer in some way to others. I did see a grand father figure and I kept hearing medicine man from my guides and I knew exactly who they were referring to. It was Joseph which i can't believe I actually got right. I gave him the spirit message that night. Afterwards, he would tell me that this coin belonged to his grandfather. His grandfather was a healer in a temple and he always carried that coin with him. He made the coin into a necklace so that when he was wearing the coin, it was a belief that this coin would absorb any of the negative energies that he was receiving from the person he was healing at that time. That really made so much sense, especially when I could feel my worries being lifted that night as I was holding it. If you ever get a chance to do psychometry it is really a lot of fun. It teaches you to work with no tools and rely on your senses. It's really a lot of fun and you can learn a lot from just doing one item. Love and Light, Joy ext. 5142

Hi Verbena, I know that they do provide those type of classes here where I live actually. You are actually right about how the trance work promotes healing in the room. That is the actual purpose of having a physical medium circle. Physical mediumship circles also provides growth to all of us that are in it and it helps pass along important messages to us that are in it so that we can help others out in this world. That is what I was taught when I did physical mediumship circles back then. I haven't done physical mediumship in a year or so but my friend is interested in getting a physical mediumship circle going again. She has a friend that teaches out in NY that meets 2 days of the week and on average the circle work is about 1 hour long. I love how I receive transcripts of the their sessions and how her friend explains what has gone on in the sessions. I know that my friend is going to try to gather more people that can do this kind of work effectively, the more people the more powerful the energy and the more powerful the messages become. I love the circles I feel healed and refreshed after doing them, they are alot of fun that's for sure. You definitely can actually learn trancing they do offer classes where I am at , as I am am fully certified to do the work both with mental mediumship and physical mediumship. Also, if people are not comfortable in doing physical mediumship then doing mental mediumship circles work as well. They have the same effect as a physical mediumship circle to promote self healing and healing to others , the only difference is that spirit doesnt use our bodies physically but the same purpose is there. As far as recommendations ,I would recommend to do some research in that area that they live in. That's how I did it , some spiritual churches may actually teach it like the one I am going to and its actually cheaper if you can find an organization like there. There are metaphysical stores that also offer classes that will certified you as well. Also, , I would attend those metaphysical expos out there, you'll meet so many teachers and readers and often the lectures that are free as well. I know I used to attend those all the time to learn as much as possible. Then finally there are also magazines that deal with spiritual work. I know th one here where I live is called Visions and its actually free to pick up at certain stores, its like a Bi monthly magazine that brings joy and hope and inspiration to others. I hope this helps. =) Love and light, Joy ext. 5142

Hi Believer, To answer your questions that form of channeling is called trance channeling. The more technical term is called physical mediumship meaning they use your body. OF course , you give that permission to do so as well. There are also two forms of trance readings . One we called Light trance where we are still in control of our body 50% of it and the spirit is in control of the other 50% of the body. That is the type of reading I provide on here every day, its my trance work. The other one is called deep trance where your own spirit leaves the entire body trusting in your guides to protect your body while another spirit is in control completely. With deep trance you do need a someone to keep control of the energy around you. It's often done in a physical mediumship circle so there is alot energy surrounding it. With light trance, its not necessary. If you're accustomed to it every day like I am it comes with ease. I have full trust with my guides when I do my light trance. Some people prefer to have a facilitator for light trance as well especially if they are new at it. It depends on the person going into trance. As far as it being tiring , that can also be true. It used to very difficult for me to handle the energy of the spirit and now it comes with ease because I have learned to control the spirit energy and be able use their energy to do readings instead. Once you can learn to use a spirit's energy, its not draining your energy. That is through my experience though. Again it varies with different people. Everyone's different so they all have to figure out what works for them. I can tell you that I love trance work myself. I enjoy it and I love the bond I have with the spirits surrounding me because they have become my best friends. =) I hope this helps you out in answering your questions. Love and Light, Joy ext. 5142

Hi Barbara, Thank you for your kind words. There are many different decks of oracle cards out there , but the Angel cards are my favorite. The deck we are working on right now is called The Archangel Oracle Cards by Doreen Virtue. It's got alot of pink around it. If you need a picture of the box , its in my other article Intro to Angel cards. It's a 45 card deck and you can find these cards either at a big book store like Barnes N Nobles or Borders. If you have a spiritual store or metaphysical shop near you they usually carry those cards along with tarot cards and other tools you can use to give yourself a reading. If there you like purchasing on the internet, try Amazon.com. There are many angel cards out there so find the one that is right for you. I hope that helps you out. =) Love and Light, Joy Ext 5142

Hi Anne, I am glad to see that you doing what this card is expressing here. That's great to hear! Have you ever thought that they aren't angry at you? But more so that they are angry at themselves? A lot of the times we don't know how to handle the situation we are in and so without realizing it, we tend throw our emotions on to those that are closest to us. I understand that you want to help correct the situation and I admire you for your effort as well because you do care for them and you want what is best for them. But sometimes we just need to take a step back to breathe and relax a bit for ourselves. They will change what they need to change when they are ready change. Everyone has their own pace for their own changes as well so being able to accept that will also make you feel lighter. In the mean time, set prayers and send loving energy and thoughts to your family members. Ask the universe to help guide them.Then just trust that universe will do what is needed to help resolve the situation. =) Love and Light, Joy Ext. 5142

Hi Randall and Doreen, This is great to hear! I love this deck as I have a deck of my own and I cant wait to see what insights you have on this deck. It's a wonderful deck that's for sure. Throughout the years of using this deck I have found that these cards are always right when you are asking about a general reading on the situation. Plus when reading on these cards I find the goddesses are clear cut and to the point with the messages. I'll keep my eye out on your blog as I am sure it will be a hit! Have a wonderful week! Hugs, Joy

Hi Corrine, Welcome to California Psychics! In regards to reading your post, its important to find a style that works best for you and that you are most comfortable with. I wouldn't worry too much about working the kinks out of your reading as I feel here you will naturally grow into your style. Just allow things to flow for you on any messages that you are getting whether they are good or bad news and trust in yourself in what you are picking up around the client. For me I usually meditate before I log in to work on here. I ask my inner guides for any messages of the day that they would like to share before I get on for work. I also do a prayer for myself. In my prayer I ask spirit to help me be a clear channel of messages to each and every client. I also ask that the clients are open to receiving their messages and that I am able to empower them at the end of each session. Then finally I just ask that my needs are met for today. I dont ask for a certain amount of time or certain amount of income that I need to make on a daily or monthly basis. I just allow the universe to supply my every need in their own way. This keeps things flowing naturally for me and by not having an expectations of any kind, it actually helps draw in more abundance in my life. I find this has work best for me because my needs are met every day and I always thank the universe at the end of day for what is given to me. I don't have an expectations of the length of the call either. Some calls can be really quick and others can be longer. It all depends on what the client needs to cover in their session so I just allow them to ask what they want to know. Most importantly just be patient with yourself and don't rush the process of your reading. I am sure you will do great on here! Good Luck!

Thank you for bringing in such a lovely topic to discuss on here. I find its important that we do take the time relax and finding that time to do so can be rather difficult as well. For me, I tend do a few things around the house. I love lighting incense on a daily basis and it brings in peace and balance to me especially when I am getting ready to do a meditation and preparing for readings. I also white sage my entire home once a month followed by burning some sweet grass. It's a wonderful combination as it really sets a relaxing environment for me. I also love to light candles, oils, and take aromatherapy baths as well. I even go to the extent of using linen spray or pillow mists to get a good nights rest. Sometimes I just need to be out for fresh air. Even if its just a walk around the block or going to the pool/beach. All that comforts me and keeps me balanced for my every day routines. Most importantly, I find peace in myself when I do these things for myself. I know I don't always have enough for everything but at least I try to make the time for it. Love and light! Joy ext.5142
