Seek Wisdom Beyond the Obvious: Divination and Intuitive Consultation

Often the keys to our Authentic Self are hidden from our daily perspective, but we’re not alone on this Journey. We can Recover the Wisdom of our Ancestors, Guides, Angels, and Teachers to help us deepen our experiences, find our own best path, and Return to our True Nature when we’re feeling stuck, clouded, or confused.

In the best of times, we pair intuition with thoughtful action to make the best choices. Logic and a grounded look at the situation we’re facing give us a lot of information to weigh as we set our course. Our intution or gut-instincts tug us in the direction that’s best. When we act with those perspectives in balance, we are most likely to chose wisely, even when the choices aren’t obvious or clear.

The Challenge

The challenge we face in this era is in finding that balance. We live in a culture that heavily favors the logical, grounded perspective… The Mind’s eye view. Our school systems, cultural training, and social behaviors are strongly weighed toward the rational, logical Mind’s perspective on life. It can be hard even for folks who spend a lot of time working on meditation and heart-centered living to connect with their own Heart’s view when the situation at hand is emotionally charged. Our Mind’s collectively have built a veritable obstacle course of blocks preventing us from hearing or understanding that intuitive perspective because it’s often scary, often asking us to make choices that require a lot of faith and trust in that which we cannot sense with our five “scientifically proven” senses.

Divination is a Tool for Clarity

Part of building a Natural Lifestyle includes finding your own balance between Mind and Heart. Divination Tools, like the I Ching and Tarot, are often helpful for getting around some of our emotional blocks. They use symbols and seemingly random chance to make connections we couldn’t make from the Logical Mind’s perspective. I often use them as a springboard for getting up above the playing field of rational thought. Despite our culture’s myths, Divination tools are not for predicting or seeing the future; they’re for helping us get around the noise of our Mind so we can see from other perspectives more clearly.

Intuitive Consultation for Bigger Problems

When the emotional fog is really thick or there are just too many rational possibilities keeping the Mind so heavily engaged you can’t hear your Heart, or fear is so strong that you’re not sure you heart your Heart correctly, it can feel utterly impossible to spring above the action. That’s a good time to try an Intuitive Consultation. During an Intuitive Consultation, you’re basically asking your Intuitive Counselor to climb above the fray for you, take a look around, engage with the “experts” at that level, and give you a read on the situation.

I good Intuitive Counselor won’t tell you what to do or how to do it. Instead, she’ll offer you insight to the situation that can help you decide how to move forward. Just like using Divination tools for yourself, it’s about making connections that’ll help you get past or through the fears, emotional charge, and unknowns that are keeping you stuck. Divination and Intuitive Consultation are natural choices for those times when your Mind-Heart balance is tipped too far in one direction (or another!), and you’re struggling with your next step.

Divination and Intuitive Consulting: What to Expect

Have you ever struggled with a decision, felt clouded, or been just plain stuck? A little Intuition can give you a fresh perspective. I can do a short or long reading or offer you an Intuitive Consultation to help clear the fog.

Tools I use

For Short Readings, I favor the I Ching. The Book of Changes, aka I Ching, often offers powerful insights into a situation, especially when a quick read is all you need.

For Long Readings, I choose a combination of tools, depending on the situation, question, and my Intuitive inclination. I Ching, Tarot, and Fulthark Runes are among my favorites as is Palm Reading. Occasionally, I use non-traditional or custom Divination tools of my own creation.

Intuitive Consultations are more free-form, in that I may draw on Divination tools but often I do not. Instead, I often connect directly with The Folk and see where the query leads me. Sometimes, Dreamwork or other extended methods are needed, but most often the answers or information needed comes more directly.

Reading vs. Consultation…what’s the difference?

Readings can be in-person, but more often I do them long-distance.

Long-distance Readings take a little more time because I set time and space to do them away from the day’s activities. You’ll send me information on the area you want to clarify or explore. I’ll set space and use my tools to ask the questions and gather information for you, then I’ll create a document for you detailing the information I’ve received. If it’s a Short Reading, that’s it. If it’s a Long Reading, I’ll take up to 2 sets of follow-up questions for which I’ll follow the same process.

In-person Readings are timed. For a Short Reading, I’ll spend 15 minutes with you, tools in-hand, and I’ll speak to you directly rather than writing or recording any information I receive. For Long Readings, I’ll do the same for 1 hour. In either case, you’ll have the opportunity to ask as many questions or for as many clarifications as time permits. I do in-person Short Readings or Long Readings by appointment only. I also book in-person Short-readings by the hour for parties and events.

Intuitive Consultations are always in-person in some fashion, including by telephone or appointment.

When you book an Intuitive Consultation, we will both set aside time and space that is undistracted to meet. The meeting may be by telephone or through Skype or Facetime or it can be in-person. The important part is that we both have the opportunity to focus on the time we work together so that we make a stronger connection that will help us gain the clarity you seek.

I offer Intuitive Consultations for set times. An hour is the best, especially for the first time we’re working together, with half-hour sessions being effective once we’ve established an on-going working relationship.

Shamanic Consulting with Candace

Shamanic Consulting: What to Expect

I would be honored to use my Shamanic Training to help you strengthen your connection with the Spirit Realm, Find Answers, and become the Author of your Life’s Story.

Tools I use

I use a lot of tools. The world of Shamanic Practice is as varied and individual as the world of beings…endless!

There are a few tools and practices many Shamanic Practitioners use, which I use as well:

  • Dreamwork
  • Mirror Work
  • Ritual and Ceremony
  • Guided Meditation
  • Shamanic Journey

In addition, I’ve developed the practice of Story-Spinning to help us reclaim ownership of our lives and I often draw on Empathic Perception in my Shamanic work. Beyond that, I follow where Spirit leads and see what arises with each session.
Intuitive vs. Shamanic Consultation…what’s the difference?
Shamanic Consultations are generally in-person sessions in some fashion, although I often feel they work much better when we’re in the same physical place.

When you book a Shamanic Consultation, we will meet in my space, which is cleared and protected. We’ll first discuss or explore the challenge, problem, or situation you face. Then we’ll work together to resolve it. In this way, I will become a more active participant in helping you move through the situation than I would during an Intuitive Consultation.

Shamanic work generally includes some elements of the dramatic. We’ll use tools and ritual in our work together. You may go home with a ritual or on-going work or we may complete the work within our session. Likewise, we may discover there is an added piece of work I will need to complete beyond our session to support your progress, healing, or development.

Each session is different…the most important part is that you arrive ready and willing to see what arises and do the work that’s needed with as open a mind as possible in that moment, leaving expectation and judgment at the door.

Intuitive Consultations are always in-person in some fashion, including by telephone or appointment.

When you book an Intuitive Consultation, we will both set aside time and space that is undistracted to meet. The meeting may be by telephone or through Skype or Facetime or it can be in-person. I will be properly prepared to serve as a Universal Translator of sorts, helping you reach beyond whatever clouds you to get the perspective or information needed to help you make your own choices or take your own actions as makes sense. The important part is that we both have the opportunity to focus on the time we work together so that we make a stronger connection that will help us gain the clarity you seek.

I offer Intuitive Consultations for set times. An hour is the best, especially for the first time we’re working together, with half-hour sessions being effective once we’ve established an on-going working relationship.

Ritual & Ceremony with Candace

Ceremony and Ritual with Candace

Rituals highlight those important moments when we’re transforming elements of our lives in a deep and meaningful way, such as Weddings, Funerals, and Coming-of-Age ceremonies. I can help you create the perfect Ritual to do exactly that.

Besides Weddings and Funerals, why hold a Ritual?

Ritual is action married with intention for a purpose. Most of us think of Catholic Mass or Weddings or Funerals when the word Ritual arises. Those are, of course, rituals. They’re the big, fancy kind that take a lot of energy and depend on a whole community of participants. They can be absolutely lovely, deeply moving, and effective. They’re still only one facet, and a small one at that, of Ritual Work.

Ritual work extends well beyond the boundaries of special occasions and holidays. Daily life offers up a host of opportunities to turn simple, mundane acts into powerful little rituals that can help you change the way you live, breathe, and think. I like to use those kinds of rituals to create the ripples that make Big Change possible in part because it reminds me that daily life truly is magical.

Breaking down the changes you want to effect into little bites makes the whole change easier to digest and absorb. When you connect a simple act, like opening and closing your bedroom curtains, and pair it with a healing message you want to embody, like “I am open to new possibilities and the adventures they may bring,” then do it over and over, you have a ritual that breaks the bigger change you want to see in your life down into something manageable.

Occasions for Ritual

Weddings are the most popular rituals in our culture. I am a legal Wedding Officiate. I can help you plan a Wedding Ceremony that’s meaningful and perfectly tailored to the partnership on which you’re about to embark.

I can also help you create the Ceremony or Ritual that best suits your next Big Occasion. Dinners, Graduations, and Funerals are all opportunities to create a deep and meaningful experience through Ritual for yourself and your guests.

While I enjoy doing larger rituals, like officiating weddings and holding Dinner with the Dead each year, I revel in the use of those smaller rituals for effecting change in my life. If you’re interested in learning to create your own rituals to effect change in your life or you’d like me to officiate at your next Big Occasion, feel free to contact me.
