At least 15 minutes before the reading, I will be sitting, getting in touch with my guides and getting my energy in a receptive place to connect with the messages we are about to listen to. I raise my vibration with crystals and speak with the cards to get any residual messages cleared before our conversation. I also listen to my crystals, as sometimes one or more asks to come as representatives of you or perhaps to add their energy to yours for healing or other kinds of energy working.
WHAT SHOULD I DO TO PREPARE?
Also about 15 minutes before we start, I suggest that you sit, get quiet and relaxed and tune in to yourself and your breathing. Consider the issues you are concerned about, or the people or situations you want more clarity on. Gather things to write on, you will want to remember certain details later. If you have a favorite incense or candle, light them. Make sure you have privacy and won't be interrupted. Note - if you purchase a Premium Reading a separate emailed ritual will be sent.
WHAT CAN I EXPECT MY READING TO BE LIKE?
Like a conversation. This means that you must be prepared to participate also. It's not like readings in the movies where a person sits passive, waiting for something to happen. I will at first chat with you -- just to feel a bit of how our energy works together and then I will ask you to talk -- YES YOU! -- while I shuffle. These readings happen almost exclusively remotely so I am shuffling in your place. It takes a few minutes for the connection to be solid. You don't have to "give away" anything, you can talk about whatever you like, so long as I can have a tendril of energy to connect us.
Another note, if we start the reading and it "doesn't feel right" or "doesn't sound like" you or your life, PLEASE do you not hesitate to let me know. I want this experience to be really good for you! You are paying for this, participating in this and that is important. I don't want to sit through a shitty reading anymore than you do! So let me know, and we will re-calibrate.
See what other folks who have done readings have to say about their experiences in the testimonials segment here. If you feel like we had a positive encounter with one another, please consider adding your words to this page. Contact me, put it on the Facebook page, or tag #afromajick on Social Media. We should be following each other anyway. Reach out!
CAN YOU DO READINGS OVER THE PHONE?
Yes! In fact, I do more readings this way than any other these days. I do in-person readings also, but generally only at events. Lately I have been very fond of digital calls using Facebook Messenger or Google Voice. Skype or video calls might be an option but I don't see the point really as the cards are the focus, not our faces! lol I might reconsider this in the future.
CAN I TRADE, BARTER OR MIX PAYMENT WITH GOODS/SERVICES? CAN I CONTRIBUTE TO ANOTHER PERSON HAVING A READING WHO CAN'T AFFORD IT BUT NEEDS ONE?
Bartering is ancient, it's human, it's revolutionary and I am all for it. Are you someone with a skill set or a small business? Are you someone who simply likes to do things in a different way? We can make a deal. I also have made a list of items on Amazon that can be traded for readings and services with a $10 leeway for readings/services over $50 or for combining with cash/credit payments.
Contribution is human and expansive. Contribution from individuals makes the whole not only function, but makes the whole better for the fertile energy it produces. You can add to the price of your reading purchase to allow someone else who can't afford it right now to have access. You can purchase readings specifically for another person you feel needs it. You can even contribute to AfroMajick to help keep it afloat. Contact me to talk about specifics or you can go straight to Paypal.me/LisaSwinney and bless up. Let's make the world different than it is, and shift up our paradigm around money, 'worth', and damn capitalism.
While you are absolutely seeking advice, you shouldn't try to use a reading in place of professional advice when it pertains to legal, medical, business or financial advice nor does any portion of your reading from me pretend to do so. If you need guidance in these areas PLEASE seek out a licensed professional. My readings are guidance on considering a situation on a spiritual or soul level.
