The Egyptian Lenormand Goes to Press!

Published November 14, 2014 by Nefer Khepri, Ph. D.

I am currently hard at work on my forthcoming deck, The Turtle Lenormand (now open for pre-order & limited to a print run of only 50 copies), however, I have

discovered today that my soon-to-be-published deck, The Egyptian Lenormand, is already receiving recognition although physical hard copies are not yet available.

My deck has been available for pre-order on Amazon for approximately 2 months and has always been well ranked in the New Releases categories of Divination and Fortune Telling, and lately, also in the category of Tarot.

I am honored that there is so much interest in The Egyptian Lenormand before it is actually released. From the very beginning that deck was a tremendous honor for me. Here is the reason why.

I did not create it.

Sure, I drew the pictures and colored them with Faber-Castell watercolor pencils & Caran D’Ache watercolor crayons. Yes, I was the one who put a great deal of work into the deck & many nights made my family scrounge food for themselves because I was “in the zone” creating without time to cook dinner, but the images were given to me by the Egyptian deities with Whom I have been working since 1998.

The first image to arrive into my consciousness was The Key card. Now, at the time, I thought it was just a nice image, a one-off and that would be that. A few days later I heard the collective voice of the gods say, “Now, We would like to see Father Thoth. Perhaps standing in front of a moon.” I thought to myself ,”oh! That would be such a nice image.” So I created it. As 2 more images quickly followed I realized what this was becoming ~ The Egyptian Lenormand.

My Mother. Circa 1940.

I dedicated The Egyptian Lenormand to the memory of my mother, who was an outstanding woman who overcame a major life-threatening physical disability, racial discrimination, and gender discrimination. She outdid the doctors’ estimate of living to only 30 by living to be 82. She did not follow their advice when they told her to abort me & gave birth to me via c-section with four doctors in attendance. She went to school when no one wanted to help get her there & she had to walk nearly a mile while wearing a metal brace on one leg her entire life due to spina bifida. She was the best mother to me and a fine example I struggle to live up to everyday. She NEVER complained & it wasn’t until she was on her deathbed that I found out the spina bifida had caused her pain every single day of her life. She never told anyone, not even my father.

All my life, since the ripe age of 2, I have loved to color & draw. In Kindergarten I was hauled off to the principal’s office for coloring goldfish purple. The teacher was walking the rows of desks looking at our work & when she came to me, she stopped & asked “why are your goldfish purple?” I was 5 at the time. I looked up at her & said, “Because they’re PURPLE goldfish!” Didn’t she understand that?? She took that as insubordination instead of the opportunity to foster a child’s creativity. The principal merely told me to color what I wanted & sent me back to class, but following school policy he had to call my mom. My mom had a friend drive her to the school (we had only 1 car & Dad drove it to work) & raised holy hell about what happened. I’ll never forget. I could hear her screaming from inside my classroom since the principal’s office was only about 5 doors down. My teacher looked white as a sheet, then SHE got called into the principal’s office & we didn’t see her for 3 whole days! That was the first time I can recall someone standing up for me & my creativity. It made a lasting impression.

By the time I was in high school I had already had a one-woman art show at a local mall – twice, & my art had won a few local awards. It was my high school academic counselor who told me, “there is no money in art unless you’re dead, so choose something else.” That single negative statement also made a lasting impression upon me that I regret to this day.

So, what did I do? I focused in college on Archaeology instead, yet another career in which there isn’t any money! I guess I showed them, didn’t I? I never made much as a lecturer prior to receiving my doctorate and then realized I’d never make any decent money unless I published a book that sold well and made a name for myself in academia as did my mentor, Linda Schele, who did VERY well for herself until she unfortunately passed away from pancreatic cancer in 1998 – a tremendous blow to the field of Mayan epigraphy and iconography.

Once I couldn’t find a post-doctoral position I got lost one day in the town to which my husband and I had just moved. I wandered around driving to see if I could find a familiar intersection when I found a new age shop. I decided to check out what they had & ask for directions.

I walked in to find the owner on the FLOOR in TEARS while this young guy was standing over her screaming!! As I took a step into the shop my first reaction was to yell, “Hey! What are you doing?” He stopped, told her he quit & ran out. I immediately got on the floor to hug and comfort the poor woman. She was so upset and told me that now she had no one to watch the shop when she had to attend to other business at times and she pointed out how everyone knows how difficult it is to find good help these days.

I then told her, “well, I need a job. I have a doctorate & can’t find anything in my field. The way things are I’m willing to work retail if that’s what it takes.” So we talked, we hit it off and in about 2 hours I had had a nice lunch AND a new job. I started work the next day and that is what soon gave birth to my site and business,

That was in 1995, but it wasn’t until late 1997 that I began my business out of my home reading for local clients and not until 1998 that I founded my website, which has been at the same URL ever since. But in all that time, from the start of graduate school in 1985 and opening my business in 1998 I had not created a single piece of art. I had left it behind – my big life-long dream was no more, or was it?

I made friends with a local artist named Vasu and she encouraged me to return to my art. She kept after me and kept after me and finally, just to get her to leave me alone I created something, showed it to her and she loved it and said, “now you have to keep creating and never stop.”

That is the BEST advice ANYONE has EVER given me. I followed it, more or less, but I wasn’t serious. I was trying to keep my business afloat while taking care of a new baby I had in 1998, my husband and our new house. It wasn’t easy and my days were filled with responsibilities and little time for myself with a delightful little girl to raise. However, in my spare time I focused on my art and bit by bit the muscle memory that is so crucial to making decent drawings returned to my left hand and I could see a steady improvement in everything I drew.

Then in October, 2012 the images and the voices began for what was to become The Egyptian Lenormand. It wasn’t until I had the first four images completed that I realized it was to be a Lenormand deck. I figured at some point the well would run dry and the divine inspiration that had been coming through would cease.

But that’s not what happened. Instead, the gods saw me through the entire deck, even the design of the card back was dictated and described to me by Them.

Thus, my dream has become a reality. I never completely released my dream of being an artist and I’m very happy to say that now my visionary art (Soul Portraits and also Manifestation Mandalas) is selling to clients around the world. My deck is about to be published, I’m nearly finished with my next deck, and am also working on a pictoral oracle deck based upon my vacation photos I took on 3 different trips to Maui, Hawaii. Where will it all lead? Only time will tell, but in the meantime I am truly enjoying the process of creating.

I am deeply grateful to everyone who supported me along the way by liking the Page for The Egyptian Lenormand, joining the group, liking and commenting on my posts about the creation process, & I’m also very thankful to the 90+ people who purchased a copy of the self-published edition. I still have FOUR copies remaining if anyone is interested. I also appreciate the continued interest, and along with all who are interested, I’m also really looking forward to the day I can finally hold the Schiffer edition of The Egyptian Lenormand in my hands.

That day is coming soon. Stay tuned to my blog for further details as to the exact release date and the availability of signed Author’s Copies.

Dreams DO come true. Believe and reach for the stars!

Deck Review: Aquarius Gypsy Lenormand Deck

Aquarius Gypsy Lenormand Deck

The Aquarius Gypsy Lenormand is both a Lenormand and a Gypsy divination deck. Gypsy2The first 36 cards of the 70-card deck are the traditional cards of the Lenormand system, numbered 1 – 36.  Cards numbered 37 – 70 correspond to cards that traditionally comprise decks known as “gypsy” cards. The cards measure 3 ½ X 2 ½” individually and when stacked on top of one another, the deck measures 7/8” high. Although this is a thick deck, due to its small playing-card size it remains easy to shuffle.

You have three options when using this deck, based upon my own experimentation. The Aquarius Gypsy Lenormand works great when using the traditional 36 Lenormand cards. You can then use the remaining Gypsy cards to draw extra cards for additional clarification, especially when reading a Grand Tableau. Due to using all 36 traditional Lenormand cards for the Grand Tableau spread it is usually not possible to draw extra cards for additional clarification unless you are using a second deck.  Another deck is not necessary with the Aquarius Gypsy Lenormand since there are an extra 34 cards when using the first 36 cards as a traditional Lenormand deck.

The second manner of use focuses on using only cards numbered 37 – 70. This provides you with a 34-card oracle deck. I have gotten very clear readings for myself using only the Gypsy cards of this system. Readings are concise and to the point, as they are with the traditional Lenormand cards numbered 1 – 36.

The third use of this deck is as a 70-card oracular system. The traditional 36 Lenormand cards and the additional 34 Gypsy cards work very well in tandem together. The two systems play quite nicely and readings are thorough and easy to understand, even for a novice.

Card interpretations are provided printed out Gypsy1 onto four sheets of typing paper, size A4. Pages 1 – 3 are printed on both sides while page 4 comes to nearly half a page of printed interpretations, thus providing deck users with nearly 6 ½ pages of card interpretations. Interpretations for the first 36 cards of the Lenormand follow traditional Lenormand card interpretations while interpretations of the 34 Gypsy cards combine Gypsy interpretations with some Tarot (Empress, Emperor, Wheel, Lightning as the Tower, Doorway as Judgment, Hermit, Fool, Oracle as the High Priestess, and World. The Gypsy cards also include four cards that correspond to the four seasons, which are great if they appear in a reading concerned with the timing of an event or situation.

Images are photographed with some of them being within the public domain. The actual image area measures 2 7/8 X 1 15/16” surrounded by a mottled purple border that measures at top and bottom 3/8” and along the left and right the border measures ¼” wide. Due to their darker color the borders are not obtrusive. Usually, such wide borders bother me as a reader, especially when reading larger spreads, but that does not apply to the Aquarius Gypsy Lenormand deck.

I enjoy using these cards very much. I have been working with them for a few months now and I have used a wide variety of spreads, some specifically designed for use with Lenormand decks, some designed for Tarot, and a few I have made up myself. The Aquarius Gypsy Lenormand deck lends itself well to every spread I have tried. Readings are clear, to the point, and easy to interpret.

As a result, I would definitely recommend the Aquarius Gypsy Lenormand to beginners and advanced readers alike. There is a great deal of enjoyment to be had with this deck and Lynn Boyle has succeeded in creating a lovely contribution to the field of self-published Lenormand and oracle decks.

Wishing you & yours many blessings,

Ebola: Together We Can Heal

Published October 14, 2014 by Nefer Khepri, Ph. D.

Healing event - Maui 2014

Along the Road to Hana, Maui, Hawaii. (C) Nefer Khepri, 2014.


I had another dream about the Virgin Mary last night. I don’t remember if She said anything to me. She was facing me, dressed in an iridescent blue robe and white gown. She was wringing her hands & had tears of blood all along her face. They were coming down & the blood was beginning to saturate the neckline of her robe. Although She didn’t say a word (that I can remember) I’m sure that dream is tied to the Ebola problem. If you remember, I dreamt about her a couple of weeks ago and She asked us all to pray & to pray often & hard, with emotion. You can read that blog post here if you missed it.

As a result of this new dream, combined with the first dream, and the current state of world affairs, I cannot help but think both are tied to the Ebola situation. Doctors and missionaries who have become infected with the virus are being shipped to their home countries for treatment. Those home countries (at least in Dallas, Texas) are not properly equipped to deal with Ebola so others have become infected. Already there has been a nurse infected in Spain who was treating a missionary and a nurse here in Texas (Dallas) who treated the man from Liberia who passed away last week.

Consequently, I have created a public event on Facebook asking everyone, no matter what your walk of faith may be, to please pray, send energy using any healing modality you know of, and light candles holding the intentions I have outlined below. I invite everyone to join the event on Facebook and I ask you to please share this blog post so others can also join in our efforts. The event is set for Saturday, but any time this weekend will be just wonderful.

The intention I feel we should all focus on should involve the following points:

  •  healing energy to those affected in West Africa
  •  healing energy to those affected who are in other areas of the world
  • protective energy to all healthcare workers treating Ebola patients
  • protective energy to all missionaries & other volunteers working with Ebola patients and caregivers
  • protective energy to all nations in order to prevent the worldwide spread of Ebola.

I truly believe if we make a concerted effort & we all focus on these main points every time we pray, send energy, or light a candle, that we can make a real difference.

My Facebook friend, Sally Nur, posted this prayer to her timeline this morning. It was one of the first things I read when checking my account. It is VERY powerful. Just reading it made my intestines feel like they were shaking! I am sharing it here in the form of a meme I created using a photo I took of a small shrine to Our Lady that was set into the cliff wall somewhere along the Road to Hana, Maui, Hawaii. This is a little shrine, about 2 feet long, that is set into a hole in the cliff wall along the Road to Hana. You can only view it going TO Hana. If you’re coming back then you have the opposite lane of traffic between you and the shrine. The twisty, narrow 2-lane road doesn’t allow you to look around well so coming back from Hana everyone would definitely miss it. My husband and I made the drive to Hana twice before & we never saw the shrine until our third trip this past June. I don’t know if the shrine is brand new or if it’s been there all along. I’m so glad we found it this time. My husband actually saw it first and backed up the car so I could take this picture. We risked being rear-ended on a curve along the cliff road that had about a 1,000 foot drop so I’m very glad I got this picture in one take!

I invite everyone to use this prayer if you so desire & to join us in our global effort to find a cure for Ebola. Already too many lives have been lost.

Free Tarot Reading for the Week of October 10th.

Deck: The Chrysalis Tarot

The week opens with Green Man, which is most commonly titled “The Emperor” in other Tarot decks. This card embodies the universal spiritual forces of Will, Control, and Organization. It represents skills at being organized, at knowing how to put a project together and get it off the ground, and it is usually a card of accomplishment since the Green Man gets things done. On the downside, the Green Man can be a bit controlling, sometimes even a control freak and the lesson of this card is to always remember it’s great to have a set goal in mind and a good idea of how to attain it, but you also have to be careful not to drive over anyone who may be in your way or may be too slow to join in. Patience may be required from time to time.


The 6 of Mirrors represents nostalgia. It often indicates

either yearning for the past or perhaps wishing to see an old friend. The 6 of Mirrors can sometimes indicate a reunion with an old friend or a family member you haven’t seen in a long time. It’s typically a happy and peaceful card.

The 6 of Mirrors (also known as the 6 of Cups in other Tarot decks) usually is a depiction of a garden. This is a card of slow and steady growth. So all that get up and go in the Green Man card will continue to evolve throughout the week. Things will grow at a pace that is appropriate for them and for you. An old friend may be of help.


The Celtic Owl, like the

Green Man, is another card of the major arcana. In other Tarot decks this is known as the Hanged Man. The Celtic Owl embodies the universal spiritual forces of Self-Sacrifice, Illumination, and often can indicate feeling like you’re stuck in limbo or in a rut.

At the start of the week you have all this great get-up-and-go energy around you that really gets things moving, but by the end of the week I think you’ll be ready for the weekend and wanting to rest and have time to reflect. The Celtic Owl can represent going within, meditating, finding the time to rest and relax. The upcoming weekend will come as a welcome break for many of us, but this will overall be a week of accomplishments.

So go out & make it a great week!

Wishing you & yours many blessings,

Deck Review: The Gorgon’s Tarot

The Gorgon’s Tarot is a rather unique deck. Like The Motherpeace and Daughters of the Moon decks, The Gorgon’s Tarot is round. The overall style of the deck is appealing to the eye. The images are depicted on black backgrounds with the images done in white. With the sole exceptions of the extra card, “The Blind Gorgon,” and The Devil card, The Gorgon’s Tarot is a strictly black and white deck. The Blind Gorgon is an extra card and it, plus The Devil card contain a splash of red.

The overall artistic style, graphic black and white images with mostly female characters and several kinds of animals; including leopards, ferrets, and cats, makes me think of art nouveau. What I particularly enjoy about The Gorgon’s Tarot is the manner in which patterns are worked into the images. Patterns are worked into the clothing of characters, background elements, suit symbols, and even some animals appear with patterns on their bodies. The use of patterns in The Gorgon’s Tarot make me think of Zentangles, a method of doodling that has become increasingly popular over the past couple of years. The patterns add texture to the images in The Gorgon’s Tarot, and when used as part of the background elements they also add a sense of depth to the images.

The cards measure 5 ¾” across. When stacked, the deck measures nearly 1 ½” tall. I don’t have particularly small hands, but I am unable to rifle-shuffle these cards. They are well laminated so I use my deck on a table and the cards are able to slide across the surface. I mix them face down on the table, then reassemble my deck for the reading.

The guidebook is quite tiny, measuring 5 ¾” long by 2 7/8”

wide. The book is rendered in landscape orientation and contains no page numbers, but according to the table of contents the book has 168 pages. All cards are reproduced in miniature at 2 ¼” in diameter.

Card interpretations are typical of the Rider-Waite tradition, but I do suggest you read the author’s own description of her cards. She has a keen sense of humor that comes through not only in her discussion of her cards, but it is also apparent in the imagery as a whole. Interpretations are very short so it will not take you long at all to read the entire guidebook. Card interpretations include both upright and reversed meanings. Spreads are not included.

I enjoy using this deck. I find it works well for pretty much any type of question. I also enjoy reading the author/artist’s own take on her cards, which read as tiny short stories that often give the reader food for thought.

 Example of a short reading.

3-card reading with "The Gorgon's Tarot," copyright Dolores Fitchie, 2014.

3-card reading with “The Gorgon’s Tarot,” copyright Dolores Fitchie, 2014.

I did a 3-card draw of Past/Present/Future regarding today’s big headline hear in Texas about an Ebola patient in Dallas and how others he had come into contact with may be also infected. My query revolved around the general welfare of the people of Texas, the state in which I reside.

I received the 9 of Swords, Judgment, and the 7 of Cups.

A portion of the text for the 9 of Swords reads:

… she is unable to heed the wisdom of the snakes who try to tell her that our fear is so often much worse than any real threat, the bark worse than the bite. She dwells in a solipsistic bubble of terror and grief. She needs to find a way to pierce through it, and she’s not lacking the tools to achieve this. After all, swords can cut both ways.

The 9 of Swords clearly speaks to the fear that Ebola may become a real outbreak here in Texas and this card is picking up on my concern for my daughter as well as the people of Dallas.

Judgment in the Present position is all about preparing for our next stage in spiritual evolution. Things have come to a close and new developments are on the horizon.  I see this card as a shift in perspective due to some form of illumination or perhaps a spiritual awakening. It could indicate that new realizations about Ebola and how to combat it will result from the medical profession’s work with this patient in Dallas.

The 7 of Cups in the Future position represents the need to narrow down choices and focus better on alternatives offered. Given the current situation, I feel this reflects the media and all of the conflicting information that is now being announced to the public. On the one hand we’re told Ebola is not communicable except via bodily fluids, then in another newscast they tell us you can catch it via bodily contact from the perspiration of the infected individual. All of these cups represent people wondering who do we believe? Or do we simply believe what we wish to believe and go on about our lives?

Overall, the cards tell me there is tremendous fear surrounding the entire situation that can be mitigated once people become better informed about how Ebola is transmitted. The 7 of Cups I take to be a warning to not listen to everything we hear and take it at face value. The public needs to evaluate the sources of their information as some are not as thorough or accurate as others. By remaining informed we can combat the disease and take the proper measures to protect ourselves.

The Gorgon’s Tarot speaks well to my intuition. I don’t

know if it’s because they are black and white so the absence of color may be a favor or if it is the varied patterns that are used on the cards. Perhaps it is those patterns that speak so much to my inner knowing, but I find that I don’t use the book at all. I examine the images and I ascertain how they make me feel and what they make me think. Then I factor that into my own interpretation of the cards and I find that method is working very well for me when I use The Gorgon’s Tarot.

Suits are the traditional Wands, Swords, Cups and Pentacles. The major arcana is also traditionally named with Justice at arcana 8 and Strength at Arcana 11. Court cards are the traditional Page, Knight, Queen and King. As a result, I recommend The Gorgon’s Tarot to beginners, especially if they want to work with a deck that is fairly unique.

Virgin Mary Appearances, Visitations and Dreams

Published September 30, 2014 by Nefer Khepri, Ph. D.

When the Virgin Mary appears She always has a message to deliver. The Virgin Mary has always been very active in the spiritual realms as She focuses on the well-being of humanity as a whole. Religion and race do not matter to Her.  There is a long history of what are termed Marian Apparitions that go back far into recorded history, the first being recorded by Saint James the Apostle (aka St. James the Great) in Zaragoza, Spain in AD 39.  This is the earliest report of a Marian apparition and it occurred PRIOR to the Virgin Mary’s Assumption, meaning, she was still in physical body at the time. The Marian Apparition most well-known in the Americas is that which was recorded in 1531 by Juan Diego in Mexico (see below). The most well-known of Marian Apparitions in Europe occurred in Lourdes, France and Fatima, Portugal.

Today, the Virgin Mary is still active here on the earth plane. She visits people as apparitions, She speaks to us through an inner voice, in dreams, and She has been known in recent times to cause Her holy image to appear in the strangest of places:


  • Statues that weep. The statues are located in both churches, private homes & even graveyards
  • Food (yes, like Jesus in a tortilla, the Virgin Mary has at times blessed food with Her image)
  • Trees – Her image has been known to appear in the bark
  • Clouds
  • Water
  • Smoke
  • Roses – a friend of mine went on a pilgrimage to her shrine at Medjugorje, Yugoslavia and photographed a rose bush in bloom in WINTER time outside the chapel in which Mary was appearing to several local inhabitants. At the time, everyone in her group remarked how unusual that was. Upon returning home and having her photos developed we were shocked to see the face of Mother Mary within the petals of one of the roses – clear as day! This was long before the days of Photoshop or home computers.

And now, Saturday in Texas Mother Mary decided to manifest

Her holy image within a few drops of remaining coffee on a spoon. Something so insignificant and incredibly mundane, yet there She is. This photo was taken by my friend, Bernadette Krauss. She has a Virgin of Guadalupe candle next to the coffee maker in her kitchen. She made a cup of coffee, set the spoon down, and when she returned she noticed the image that had formed within the bowl of the spoon.

Can there be any doubt that this is an image of the Virgin of Guadalupe? Her history is one of the most startling of all the Marian Apparitions because she left behind undeniable physical evidence that has never been debunked despite a number of attempts over the centuries.

The Virgin Mary appeared as a beautiful woman surrounded by a golden light to an Aztec (Nahautl) Indian peasant named Juan Diego in 1531 on the hill of Tepeyac outside of Mexico City. She told Juan Diego to go see the bishop and have him build a shrine in Her name on that very spot. Juan Diego did as he was told and was laughed out of the room for his trouble. Another day he walked along the base of the same hill and saw the glorious woman again. This time She told Juan Diego to remove his cloak and lay it on the ground. He did so. She then instructed him to pick up his cloak and without opening it take it to the bishop and she said then he will build the church.

Juan Diego did as he was told. When he unfurled his cloak in the presence of the bishop and other dignitaries everyone was stunned to see it was full of roses of all colors in full bloom. It was winter at the time in Mexico. Roses do not bloom in winter. Once they recovered from the shock of the roses they were in store for an even greater surprise for there, painted into the very fabric of Juan Diego’s cloak was the image revered by Mexicans and Catholics the world over and known today as the Virgin of Guadalupe.

The cloak has been analyzed and it has been determined the pigments were not of paint that existed at the time. This is not an image that some contemporary incredibly gifted artist painted on the peasant’s cloak. Furthermore, recent computer analysis of the image of Our Lady of Guadalupe had revealed within the PUPILS of Her eyes a smaller image. The image is of the bishop, Juan Diego and the dignitaries who were present in the room when Juan Diego unfurled his cloak exposing the miraculous roses. It is as if Her eyes on the cloak were a camera that captured the entire scene as it unfolded.

Needless to say, the bishop of Mexico City ordered the church built. Today it stands as a cathedral and thousands visit it in pilgrimage annually.

I was unaware of Bernadette’s miraculous photo until this morning when she shared it to her timeline on Facebook and to my Magickal Musings group, also on Facebook. She has kept the spoon next to her candle of the Virgin of Guadalupe since. Also, after sharing her pictures with us in the group she found an angel feather at her feet when nothing had been there before. This is just more validation that the pictures and the message are real and come from the One known as the Queen of Heaven and Queen of the Angels.

Now, what struck me is this. Images of the Virgin Mary are almost always accompanied by a message from Her. Bernadette had no message, just the image, BUT, last night, even before I saw Bernadette’s photo, I received a message in a dream.

I dream of holy figures, but just once in a very great while. Usually, I dream of the Archangel Michael and he will give me guidance that then helps greatly with a client’s case. I have never dreamt of the Virgin Mary, to my conscious knowledge, until last night.

Within the dream is the message I feel needs to be shared along with the image of the Virgin of Guadalupe in Bernadette’s coffee spoon. This message is VERY important and crucial for the times in which we currently live so I hope sincerely you all take it to heart and do what is asked of you by the Virgin Mary Herself.

In my dream I’m in a place of all white light. I can’t see anything but white above, below & all around me. I can’t tell where the walls are, or if there are any, or a ceiling. A light shines from everywhere. I then can see 2 figures walking towards me – a very tall male and a petite woman. As they get closer I realize it is the Archangel Michael, whom I have seen in dreams before, and the Virgin Mary.

Michael doesn’t speak. Mary does all the talking and she does so telepathically. I never see her lips move & I can’t be sure if I was speaking back to her verbally or telepathically.

This is the message Mary shared with me. Although I use quotation marks it is a paraphrase since I can’t recall Her exact words, but have retained Her meaning clear as a bell. Her message is as follows:

My child, the time has come. The time I have always foreseen. Forces of evil have taken over one of the Eastern religions. You know the one. The one that uses terror to subdue, subject, and murder, all supposedly in the Name of God. This is evil. It is not religion. It is evil created by the hearts and minds of men who are warped.

“I have always admonished children of God to pray. Pray for peace. Pray for the earth. Pray for one another. Pray for the angels that they have strength to fight against darkness and to always prevail. Now I am no longer asking. I am TELLING YOU TO PRAY. PRAY EVERYDAY. PRAY HARD. PRAY WITH EMOTION.

“What you fear as a possible World War III is brewing now. It brews due to the warped souls of those whom you call terrorists. It brews in the minds of militant Muslims who have corrupted the true and peaceful purpose of Islam into one of hatred, murder and eventual world domination. That is what they wish for – WORLD DOMINATION. Nothing less will suit their dark purposes.

“So pray, my child. Ask your family, your friends, all to pray. Pray for peace. Pray for the hearts and minds of the militants to open up to the TRUE message of God the Father, who would never wish for harm to befall any of His children no matter their religion or race. Pray now like you have never prayed before.”

That last line, “Pray now like you have never prayed before,” that’s a DIRECT QUOTE. Those are the only words I can be certain I recall verbatim. And now She has appeared in Bernadette’s spoon. So there is the physical manifestation and now you have just read the message. There is always an important message tied to all of the Virgin Mary’s physical manifestations. We all need to pray and we all need to make this a DAILY PRACTICE, SEVERAL TIMES A DAY.

I felt a great sense of urgency in the dream. Also, as I was hearing Her message my left ear began to ring like crazy in the dream. This was a chronic problem with me for several years. I finally decided to pray to the Virgin Mary for a healing since She had graciously permanently healed my knees when we visited Her basilica in Rome in 2012 (see that blog post here). My ear stopped ringing after I prayed to her several months ago and has not rung since; however, last night DURING THIS DREAM it resumed ringing to the point it woke me up. I think the ringing is coming from Her making sure I share the message. So I share it here.

I originally shared this dream earlier today in my Magickal Musings group. Upon posting it to the group’s wall, that very minute the post went up the ear ringing reduced in volume by 50%! I was stunned. Meanwhile, in discussing the matter with Bernadette  her ear was also ringing. We both took that to mean Mother Mary wished for us to combine our messages and share them. When I announced in my group I was going to blog about the entire situation suddenly the ringing in my ear completely stopped! It was as if someone simply flipped a switch from “on” to “off.” Since I decided to blog about this I have not experienced any ear ringing while this morning it was so awful it was almost at the point that it was making my ear ache.

Do I think that my dream, the image that appeared in Bernadette’s spoon, and the ear ringing  are all coincidences? NO, I do not. Although my dream occurred 2 nights after the holy manifestation in the spoon, since Bernadette and I have actually met in person, I truly believe the manifestation & the dream are connected and that these messages were meant to be delivered together.

So, as the Virgin Mary has asked you, I am now also asking you. Regardless of your faith and spiritual beliefs, if you believe in a higher power, PLEASE start praying TODAY. Pray every single day, several times a day. Pray for the forces of good to overcome the forces of evil. Pray for the hearts and minds of men to open and be receptive to the Light that is attempting to enter in order to cleanse their hearts and souls. Pray that humanity comes to its senses before it is too late.

I also ask that you all share this blog post. The more who see it and heed Mother Mary’s message, the more good that will be done in a concerted effort by us all.

Finally, coincidentally or not, I just realized my friend Bernadette shares her name with Saint Bernadette, who was the young nun who witnessed and spoke with the apparition of the Virgin Mary in Lourdes, France!

Also, I was raised Catholic and my birth name is Mary. I was named after the Virgin Mary. Coincidence also? I think not. What do you think?

How To Help a Spirit Crossover.

Published September 24, 2014 by Nefer Khepri, Ph. D.

SONY DSCUpon quickly scanning an email a stranger sent me about a spirit who is interfering with his attempts to communicate with his spirit guides I saw the following vision:

A woman in a long white dress or gown, Victorian style, running through the trees. Someone is in hot pursuit. She keeps looking over her right shoulder and is crying. It’s night, the forest is dark. The leaves are blocking out the moonlight. She stumbles and falls. She appears to have hit her head on a rock. At that point I seem to be standing over her in the vision, then everything goes dark.

The person who emailed me did so after reading my article on How to Contact Your Spirit Guides. It’s very popular and it drives a great deal of traffic to my site. He told me he regularly contacts his guides, but lately a spirit has stood in the way. The spirit keeps asking for help and he has no idea who it is or what type of help they may need. That’s the gist of his email. He never mentions the spirit’s gender or anything else about it prior to my reply.

I reply with an explanation of what I am seeing and also some tips on how he can help this spirit into the light so she can crossover. Then he replies that the voice he hears asking him for help is that of a woman. The gender of the spirit is now confirmed.

I then ask him where he lives because I sense the area has a lot of history and that if he did some research he may find mention of this poor woman’s death.

He replies that he lives in a small village and he has heard a story about a woman who was a healer. She was found at the bottom of a well and had been dressed in a long white gown. No further information is available. He suspects the woman in my vision was her.

Just another day in my life with visions that come unbidden, but I sure hope it helps this poor woman’s spirit to find lasting peace. The man who emailed me is going to try two methods I sent him to help a spirit crossover. I include them here in case any of you need the information:

Method 1: Visualization.

Mentally guide the spirit into the light. Find a quiet place to sit and reflect. Ask for protection as you would prior to a session with your spirit guides, then ask your own spirit guides AND angels to come forward & tell them you are gathered to help this spirit crossover.

Next, envision the White Light. What I do when I have done this for spirits is I envision a doorway filled with blinding white light. I tell the spirit this is the Light of Heaven, it is where they are meant to go so they can be reunited with their own spirit guides & angels to go over lessons learned & lessons yet to be deciphered, and from there they can go on to reunite with loved ones and then move on to their next phase, whatever that may be. I stress to them it is safe, they will not be harmed & that this is where they are truly meant to go and they will be accepted with unconditional love & receive the healing & guidance they require.


Method 2: Invoke Archangel Michael for help.

Ask Archangel Michael to guide the spirit to the other side. Michael is the Conveyor of Souls. He gathers lost spirits to him & guides them on over. All that is required is a white candle, calling on your own protection, then lighting it for the spirit and asking Michael to help it crossover. You do this by invoking him & you can use the Catholic prayer below or pray to him in your own words. I suggest using your own words, especially since the spirit may be afraid to crossover not knowing what awaits them. The prayer here is for protection and it’s kind of heavy-handed for the situation, but I’m including it anyway.

 Archangel Saint Michael,
Defend us in our battles.
Be our protection against the wickedness & snares of the devil,
May God rebuke him, we humbly pray.
And do thou, O Prince of the Heavenly Host,
By the power of God,
Thrust into hell
Satan & all evil spirits who roam the world
For the ruin of souls. AMEN.

Until next time, wishing you many blessings,
