Post – Judgement Phase

The creation of the Judgement image for the forthcoming Initiates Way Tarot started with a vision of a pair of wrought iron gates with a blood red sky of dawn behind it. According to conversations with friends on social networks it appears that there were  several massive spikes in the schuman resonance and it peaked well above its normal average of  7.83 Hz. On that particular day I barely noticed time passing as I painted and wrote notes for the chapter on the Judgement Image in the Major Arcana.  Could these fluctuations in the Earth’s electromagnetic field account for this surge in creativity? Possibly.


In the last deck of Tarot Cards that I painted the Judgement image was re-interpreted as a “Gathering” and portrayed a calling to a different path by way of a choice of entrances or openings, or entry into a particular way of being and consideration of life so far and evaluating everything and choosing to either ascend to a different level of consciousness, or stay in a world of purely physical considerations; or simply hearing a call to a higher purpose and therefore making drastic changes in life to allow that to happen.


As it stands at the time of conception of the new Judgement image for the Initiates Way Tarot there have certainly been some major decisions and ones that are directly related to choosing a different path, ongoing commitment to the pursuit of knowledge and truth and carving out a definite ‘way’ for those who may travel in our wake in the distant future, new seekers to the path looking to find a foothold so they can begin their own journey.

The guided meditation to go with this Major Arcana is that final one that I have to write before I can begin recording them for a CD that will be published later in in the year. If you would like to know more about this please contact me via Email.

Initiates Way Tarot Paintings


IMG_9453Glasgow born and Cumbrian raised I live in the Lake District in England. It’s an interesting and ever evolving learning path and during my journey I feel compelled to share parts of it in the hope that I will inspire others to bring out their own latent talents. I’ve been a singer songwriter for as long as I can remember and I set foot upon the path of magic in my late teens embracing paganism and shamanism as the foundations upon which to begin exploration of the inner worlds of spirit. 

Initially my own Healing journey started at university in 2003 when I trained in Reiki while studying Media at the university of Cumbria. I was given a set of Tarot for my 18th Birthday so it has always been a big part of my life and I started reading tarot seriously for friends and classmates at Uni and never looked back. In 2004 I took the Reiki Master attunement and that changed my life dramatically. I have worked with hundreds of people on a one to one basis since then. 

Creativity is a way of life for me and my creations are like my other children and I release them out into the world with love. I have always wanted to help people and discovered upon growing up that there were terms for it like empathic, sensitive, healer etc which led me into studying and researching the Tarot, Qabalah, Astrology, Gematria, ancient languages and the Western Mystery Tradition.

In 2013 I published my Soulscapes Tarot cards with a little white book of instructions. The process of creation of this deck was a priceless experience for me and I used this deck for the next 6 years when reading Tarot for others because it is my connection to that intuition, inspiration, wisdom, and guidance that comes from within. 

I have just finished creating my second Tarot deck the Initiates Way and alongside that I have created 22 pathworkings / visualisations to help students to explore the inner realm of the Tarot and use them not just for divination but as a spiritual Development tool. 

The Initiates Way book with these pathworkings will be published in spring 2019 by Mandrake publishers in Oxford. 

Music and Art are my lifelong passions.

I run regular spiritual development classes, meditation circles and workshops  using the Initiates Way Tarot and teaching Reiki.
