“You’re always so happy.” That’s what someone said to me the other night. I believe I made some kind of comment, and smiled, but here is what I’d love to tell her:

I haven’t always been “happy.” I’ve done things that hurt people. I’ve made poor choices. I didn’t know what I wanted. Sometimes my outgoing and confident demeanor looked like happiness (and maybe I was happy in that moment) but I was really just confused and lost.

I needed to forgive myself. I needed to care about other people more. I needed to figure out what I wanted and needed in my life. I needed people in my life that would listen to me, stand up to me, and then fight the good fight with me.

I was someone who moved all the time. I moved jobs, moved homes, changed relationships etc. I needed to feel secure in order to start working on myself. Once I felt grounded, secure, and safe in my environment, the real work began.

The question of, “What do I want” became very important. What did I want out of my relationship, out of a career, or out of myself?

My answers surprised me at times because they were very different from the life I’d been living. I wanted security, I wanted faith, and I wanted to build my own career. This was all exciting, but it was also uncomfortable.

The happiness that I show today is genuine. It radiates through me, and it’s contagious. I’ve realized that married life suits me, spirituality grounds me, and living in abundance is freeing.

Do you want to know how I got to this state of happiness?

  1. I took a hard look at my beliefs
  2. I let go
  3. I gave love, and felt gratitude
  4. I sought out knowledge
  5. I communicated my needs
  6. I believed

I had some deep seeded issues around the word “God” that I needed to figure out. I was raised Roman Catholic, and I’m openly gay. I needed to embrace that “God” could mean anything I wanted it to mean. Today I say “God Source Energy” because it gives me a feeling of loving light verses an actual person.

I reached out to people that I had hurt in the past, and then I forgave myself. I needed to let go of that weight and move forward. I also needed to let go of any ties that were unhealthy. I was no longer interested in the casual friendships that were based on fake intent. I began to focus on friendships that were genuine, healthy, and honest. I’ll be honest, I have very few close friends, but this works for me.

I learned that I had a lot of love to give. I was ready to settle down and create a family. I don’t have a traditional life, or a traditional family, and for that I’m grateful. My wife, two dogs, and I live on a sailboat. That kind of adventurous life truly speaks to me. I am grateful everyday for my home, my four legged companions, and my incredible wife.

I was ready to learn more about spirituality and metaphysical teachings. I researched places, tried them out, and found a home. I spent a lot of time learning, and then I chose what I liked out of what I had learned. This became my passion, and my career field.

I needed to be clear about what I wanted. I needed to be clear with myself, and my wife. By communicating my desires to my wife, I learned that she is truly supportive (though she does not always understand), and I confirmed that these were actually my desires. Sometimes we need to say our desires out loud and have them heard by others. Creating a vision board is another beautiful way to display our desires.

After group discussions, seeking published material, and meditating, I now believe that life is ours to mold. I choose to believe that I am on a straight path to success, and that I will be surrounded with abundance, and all that is good. This is not for everyone, but I prefer to live in freedom and happiness. I prefer to focus on the positive side of life, and live with my arms wide open, ready for all the good that is coming my way. And guess what? It works!

I no longer feel like I’m in the dark. I have a mission, a purpose, and a belief. My past brought me to where I am today, and for that I am grateful, but now I choose to live in the light.

Thank you for reading this. I hope it helps you in some way. What is your story?

songlyric

I’ve had a song lyric stuck in my head the past couple days, pretty normal right? Well, the thing is, I suck at song lyrics! I looked up the lyrics today, and of course the words in my head are not the actual words to the song.

I believe that we should listen to those “voices” in our head. You can call it intuition, messages from Spirit, or a sign. Whatever you call it, pay attention to it.

The song lyric I have in my head is, “I’m beginning to be an optimist about this…and if you close your eyes, does it almost feel like nothing aged at all.”

The actual lyric is “How am I gonna be an optimist about this?… But if you close your eyes, does it almost feel like nothing changed at all?”*

It’s okay to laugh. Ellen DeGeneres loves to expose people for their inability to know song lyrics. I simply believe that we hear what we need to hear.

Look at the two versions of the lyrics above, which seems more positive? Considering I’m a pretty positive person, it makes sense that I would hear the lyrics in that way.

I have some big shifts going on in my life right now, and guess what? I AM beginning to feel optimistic about this! I feel that this is a sign from my Angels/Guides/internal intuition that I’m on the right path. It’s a sign that says, “Don’t worry. Everything is going to be GREAT.”

Have you been listening to your internal voice? What is it saying to you?

Some might think our path is unusual, but this path is strong, and filled with deep, penetrating thought.

It is doable, but will take courage, strength, and trust. Each step along this path is taken with deliberate action.

You are not alone on this journey. Those around you are there to help, because we are all heading in the same direction. We each have our own reasons for walking this path, and our goals may be different, but we have chosen this journey.

With each step forward we are making room for others to join. We must work together. Our individual strengths are needed to achieve the overall goal.

Our path may be challenging, but we can see where we are going.

Trust is key. You must trust yourself, others around you, and trust each and every step you take.

The tree is a symbol of being grounded, strong, and flexible. Carry these characteristics with you on this journey.

The chalice is a reminder of why we are on this path. What you feel within you will always be your guiding light.

We are light workers. We face the light, embrace the light, and walk towards the light.

I am honored to be on this path with all of you.

 

This was information I received through Clairaudience and Clairvoyance. I wanted to share it with you to see if anyone else has had similar visions.

A special thank you to my wife, Lynda von Witt, for illustrating my vision.

If you’re afraid of tarot and have never had your cards read, then I would suggest finding a reader (such as myself) who focuses on the positive and reads from the light (verses the dark). I always share any warnings or situations that might need to come to an end, but only because that needs to happen before you get what you desire. I focus my readings on your desires and share the path you need to take to get there.
Readings are not set in stone and can be changed if you so desire. You create your own reality. I’m just here to shine some light on the direction you are currently going.
I wanted to share this because I have had very positive feedback from “seekers” (those coming to me with questions) that were previously scared of tarot. Now they understand that it’s all about choosing a reader that makes them feel comfortable. Once those “scary cards” are explained, there is nothing to fear.

Understanding diminishes fear.

Have a fantastic Wednesday.
Love and Light. Xoxo

Did you know that Tarot reading is illegal in some cities?

I changed the name of this blog for legal reasons. I will not be able to obtain a business license in the city of Long Beach, CA under the title of “Tarot Reader.” Therefore I will be applying for a business license as a “Spiritual Life Coach.” Tarot just happens to be one of the tools I use in my business. I find this a blessing because I plan to go far beyond tarot. Why limit myself?

I find it interesting that my passions are so taboo. As a gay woman, with a loving wife, and a career focused on the metaphysical, it’s a good thing I’m confident and pretty fearless.

As I enter into this business I’m creating, I know that I will attract the right people to me. People will be drawn to me that appreciate a positive, honest approach to life. People who follow me will be ready to take control of their own lives, and make it the best life they can.

The sky is not the limit, because there is no limit.

Thank you for following.  If this doesn’t sound like you, I wish you the best in finding what you seek.

 

Much love,

Ani von Witt

With 2014 moving right along, it’s a great time to work towards manifesting your desires.

When creating a vision board, it’s key to let go of boundaries, a sense of lack, or any thought of something being unattainable.  Think BIG!  These are your desires!

Law of Attraction is all about our thoughts and feelings being in alignment with our desires.  Our vision board is a reminder to keep our thoughts and feelings focused on what is important to us, and what we wish to attain.

The Art of Allowing is believing that you can have all the good that is coming to you.  Be grateful for what you do have, but welcome and accept the abundance that is coming your way.

The most important thing to remember when creating your vision board is the feeling you have regarding each picture or word you place on your board.  Do you want a specific make and model of a car but can’t find a picture of it?  Find something similar, but focus on the feeling.  Would you feel free, independent, luxurious, or successful?  Place your board someplace where you’ll see it often and visualize what it would look like and feel like to have that new car.  Imagine your day with this new car.  How does it feel just thinking about it?  The same can be done with anything you place on your vision board.

I set up my vision board with different categories.  I have family, career, wealth, travel/adventures, wellness/health, inspiring people, and stillness.  I took plenty of time to cut out magazine clippings and printed some of my own photos as well.  Written on the back of the poster board is January 2014 because it’s always interesting to look back on your desires from various times in your life.

This can be done alone, with a significant other, or in a group, but be sure to create your own board because we all have our own unique desires.

Enjoy the process and have fun with it!

I got married over the holidays and officially took the von Witt name!  It is a combination of our last names “von Hagn” and “Witt.”

This name is meaningful to me for several reasons, and the numerology behind our name makes it even more unique.

Lynda and I have been together for almost two and half years, and the one thing we’ve realized is that when we work together we are an unstoppable force!  We are fire and water, ying and yang, light and dark.  You get the picture.  We can move mountains IF we work together.

I used numerology to calculate our married name, and I was pleased to see the dynamic result.  In numerology you break down numbers until they become a single digit, unless you see a Master Number (11, 22, 33 etc.).  “von Witt” calculates to a Master Number of 33.  I’ve read that Master Numbers only are significant if it’s one of your core numbers, (Life Path, Heart’s Desire, Personal Expression, Personality or Maturity numbers) but my intuition tells me that it’s a sign that her and I have the ability to create incredible things together.

I have no doubt that Lynda and I will have a lifetime of adventures, successful endeavors, and the ability to work through all odds.

Cheers to the start of a new year and to my incredible wife that brings happiness and wonder to my life!

If you are going through a troubling situation right now, there is hope in sight.  The situation that you are currently dealing with may make you feel trapped, bound, and helpless.  What you may not realize is that you have a clear path forward.  It takes a lot of courage and strength to let go of whatever is weighing on you and move forward, but you are surrounded with everything you need to do exactly that.  Take one step at a time.  Visualize what you would feel like once this situation is over and focus on those feelings.  You have a very bright future, but this current situation has to end in order to get to that place where you shine brighter than the sun.

If you are feeling anything other than love and compassion, please turn your focus to love and compassion.  It is within those feelings that we are able to let go, move forward, and reach our full potential.

Turn your, “I can’t” into “I can, and I will!”

You are in control of your own feelings, your own reactions, and your own path.  Take the steps needed to feel better.

If you need help, look for inspiring people around you.  Reach out to them and see if they can offer you some guidance.  Asking for help is a step forward.  Searching for inspiration is a step forward.  Looking beyond your situation is a step forward.

Happy trails.  You’ve got this!
