Evolving: Saelyn Tarot becomes Lamplighter
I feel like some people might be curious about what's been going on with me for the past couple of years. Here's that story...
In 2016 Saelyn Tarot was thriving. I was booked solid about a month in advance; I had a great following on Instagram; I'd created a community and connected with many of you as friends. I was really happy and proud of what I'd built, but it suddenly became unsustainable when my brother died unexpectedly.
Losing him caused me to need to take a break from reading Tarot and channeling messages for others. I needed time to heal. So I walked away from Saelyn Tarot because it's what was best for me.
What happened next is best summarized by the Tower card. Everything I in my life started to crumble and fall apart. The Universe was showing me that what I thought was solid was -in fact- precarious. Everything I'd been clinging to fell away and I was left living in my mother's basement, unsure of what might happen next.
It was really a fascinating time because I was grief-stricken, but I also felt exhilaratingly free. I slowly realized that the life I'd built was not the life I was meant to live. What I thought was happiness was actually just complacency. Surviving the Tower means you get to experience the Star and all its blessings, and I sure did. I've since come to appreciate all the loss I experienced following my brother's passing.
In 2017, I managed to buy the townhouse I now live in. It was built the same year I was born, and somehow that feels really neat, like it safely held a piece of my soul until I was ready to be reunited with it. This house has been so deeply healing for me. Every little element within these walls has been curated by me. It is a reflection of who I am, and an embodiment of the work I've been doing in my life. It's a physical representation of the new life I've built, a symbol of my spirit. Every single thing in my life has been curated by me. Everything I do now has purpose and intention. I am no longer allowing
I've been working in the world of communications since I graduated University, and so that's where I've been focusing my career-energy these last few years. I've helped many non-profits raise their profile and find their unique voice, but in the back of my mind I always knew that working with individuals is what I'm meant to do. I want to help you find your unique voice and express yourself. So I've been working toward getting back to a people-centered career. For the past two years I've been building Lamplighter, and I'm very proud of what I have to offer.
I've studied shadow-work, astrology, watercolour painting, and most recently took a certification program to become a life coach. This year I'm doing my practicum (which means taking on clients to put into practice all the theory I've learned), and I'd love if you'd be part of it. You can learn more about my coaching here. Up next, I am studying Human Design, which I will be integrating into my practice as soon as possible; and I've signed up for a course on Astrology to really solidify my own studies. Essentially, I want to keep learning about what it means to be human so I can help you find your inner spark —your piece of divinity— to empower you to create a life of fulfillment and meaning. Have a look at what I've got cooking! I've been working hard to bring back some old goodies and develop some new ones.
I'd love to hear from you! Let me know in the comments if you have questions, if there's something I used to do that you'd love me to bring back, and what sort of information you'd like me to share. Also, please follow me on Instagram, where I'll be doing live streams and free readings and giveaways!
