The Visconti Sforza Moon tarot card.
What would happen if you combined novel, memoir or screenplay writing with psychic channeling? Could you psychically vibe your protagonist to get down to the core of his or her belief system? Could you channel a plot? Don’t many famous writers say that they feel like they’re “channeling” when they write, with information flowing from a muse or a higher power of some sort?
Could you channel twists and turns in the plot? Might you be able to use a tarot deck to figure out what’s blocking you in a certain section of your novel?
Would it be possible to throw a reading and channel information about you as a writer in general. What about finding an agent or publisher? Could you learn to channel spiritual information that would guide you to the greatest and highest good for the publication of your book?
For a decade, I worked as an international psychic, reading for clients all over the world. At first, I resisted this lifestyle passionately. I’d been a serious international journalist at newspapers like the Financial Times and the Independent in London when the psychic opening happened. I used to make fun of tarot readers in the newsroom. Then suddenly, I was open to this whole other realm and I was being called to become that which I made fun of. I was being called to art and writing too…check out http://www.carolineallen.com to view my visual art and for more information about my literary novels.
So, in a few months’ period, I went from international newsroom to a rickety tarot table in the back of a bookstore. I felt I’d fallen so far down, when in fact, I was truly engaging profoundly powerful forces, even if society couldn’t see the truth of what I was doing.
I was a short story writer when a metaphysical counselor used tarot to tell me I needed to be turning short stories into a novel, and only after that were my first four novels born — Earth, Air, Fire and Water.
As a writing coach, I use tarot cards all the time with clients who know I have this gift. I channel for them to explore character development, plot, setting options, theme. We look at how to deepen their writing practice, find an agent, seek a publisher, even update their writing space. I LOVE using tarot for this.
I’m partnering with reknowned spiritual channeler Lisa Jones, artoflivinghappy.com, for a workshop on channeling and writing to be held in April 2014. I coached Lisa in writing her book The Art of Living Happy, and we both channeled our guides for the writing of the book. Watch this space for more information about the workshop.
