There are plenty of great Tarot books that teach you how to read the deck. But if you've searched for a story about being a psychic / healer / Tarot reader in the real world -- or even where to land, once you've discovered your gifts -- you're now holding it in your hands. "Love. Sex. Tarot." merges the wisdom of "The Reluctant Tarot Reader: Adventures in the Gypsy Trade", the tenderness of "Just Another Crazy Cat Lady Story" and pure rawness of "Home: Thoughts on Belonging" into one big, bold trilogy with a brand new introduction from healer and Tarot reader Raven Mardirosian. "Love. Sex. Tarot." is the definitive memoir for those who feel like this planet is not where they belong -- but that they are destined for great things. The soul always knows.I needed a guide like this when starting out 15 years ago; a voice that was direct, comforting and down-to-earth; a waypoint where I could rest when the woo world was confusing and cliquey; a book that made me feel like I'd been heard. This is also for those struggling to come out of their closets, whether metaphysical or sexual. "Love. Sex. Tarot." will teach you how to find wisdom, be confident and stay healthy in a world littered with burned-out healers. It will also show you how to keep sane as an entrepreneur and create abundance in every area of your life. It's easier than you think. Plus, you'll laugh your butt off.I offer you my story -- insights, anger, loves and heartbreak -- to help you along the path. You are stronger than you think and as creative as you imagine. Once you accept your gifts, you can walk through life with a sense of purpose and satisfaction.

Discoveries of a Reluctant Psychic

In this book I talk about my experiences with the odd and sometimes unexpected contact with the “spirit world” I have never asked to be a psychic or for spirits to visit or talk to me, it just happens, but I do know when to listen and know there is always a reason when they show their presence. I sometimes feel myself having premonitions of events yet to happen and I often wonder if I have an over active imagination and if I should seek proof for my own peace of mind that people live on in another dimension and visit on occasion (when they want to!).

Named to Kirkus Reviews' Best Books of 2018 Between Doubt and Belief The Reluctant Healer tells the story of a young attorney who is torn between mounting evidence that he has the spiritual ability to heal others and his life-long skepticism of alternative views. Will Alexander is cautious and conventional. But when he meets Erica, a beautiful, intense energy healer, he becomes troubled not only by her unorthodox endeavors but also by the limitations of his own existence. Amidst this turmoil, Will is startled to discover that he may possess metaphysical gifts of healing that confront the narrow doctrines of his regulated life. ​The Reluctant Healer paints a portrait of a reasonable man who traces a path between skepticism and belief. Flawed, funny, and agnostic, Will distrusts much of the alternative world, even as he struggles internally with phenomena that challenge both his sense of self and his orderly perspective. Will’s love for Erica, the exposure to her world, and his newfound powers place his life in a state of uncertainty, teetering between disruption and liberation.

We all, as children, saw imaginary friends and heard monsters in the closet. But for Suzan Saxman, those friends and monsters didn't go away—and they weren't imaginary. They were the dead who came to her from the time she was a little girl with urgent messages for the living. Raised in a house filled with secrets, she saw and spoke the truth as soon as she could talk, alarming the nuns in her convent school with her revelations and terrifying her own mother with her strange visions. Each night she woke to see a man with no eyes watching her, and each day she kept watch by the window while her father was at work and Steve, her real father, a swarthy drifter, rendezvoused with her mother. It was the 1960s in suburban Staten Island and she tried to hide it all, and be a daughter her mother could love. Always skeptical of her tremendous gift, she struggled to come to terms with her calling even as she revealed the destinies of everyone, from housewives to hit men, stockbrokers to rock-and-rollers. She could witness everyone's future—everyone's but her own. Why was she visited by angels and demons? Could she ever escape this strange fate? Where was her own soul mate? Now Suzan tells the story of her journey and tries to make sense of her family's buried secrets. Through powerful readings of others' destinies interwoven with compelling narrative, a reluctant psychic emerges from the shadows.
