New Blog Focus

I am changing things up again with my social media!

New Instagram name: fairy_environmentalist

More changes coming! I am not having much luck doing Tarot card readings online, so I am going to focus more on my freelance work: cartoon animations and illustrations. I am already on Fiverr and Upwork, and I’m going to change over my Etsy shop 🙂

I have added a link to my online art portfolio to the top of the page.

Big news! I am a Hay House Affiliate

Big news! I am now an affiliate with Hay House. This means when I review card decks, books, online course and live events, I can include a link here that goes directly to the purchase page on Hay House.com. And I get a little bit of money if you buy from this link! So please do!

Only my Favorite Tarot Cards, Meditation Classes, etc.

I will be carefully curating what I choose to promote from Hay House – only the things I absolutely love! Mostly items from Radleigh Valentine (Tarot cards), James Van Praagh (meditation and psychic development classes and live events), British author Diana Cooper (Lost City of Atlantis and unicorns) and things previously released by Doreen Virtue.

Animal Tarot Cards

First Sponsored Link for Animal Tarot Cards

My first sponsored link is for the Animal Tarot Cards. This deck was created by Doreen Virtue and Radleigh Valentine, but Doreen has removed her name from it now that she is a committed Christian. I love the cute animal art on these Animal Cards!

My Blog Plans for 2018

More Tarot Cards!

In 2018, I plan to devote more time to Tarot cards! I am creating my own Tarot deck, which I am super excited about! It will be designed to be very easy to learn. Each card will feature my cartoon art 🙂

Tarot Card Readings

I will also be reading Tarot cards for people on fiverr.com! And offering A LOT of FREE Tarot card readings here and on on Instagram (new_age_ellen) and on Facebook (NewAgeStudiesEllen). I am going to upgrade this blog so I can link to PayPal directly from here….

Certified Angel Tarot Card Reader

Every year, I wonder if I should keep writing this blog or not! I would like to monetize it and offer more things for sale…. I am taking an online Hay House class by Radleigh Valentine and will soon be a certified Angel Tarot Card Reader!

More Videos on YouTube

I always plan to do more videos every year, and then I suck about getting them done ;( And I delete them because I don’t like them! I just deleted all of my old videos on YouTube. I’m going to do reviews of all the Tarot card decks and oracle card decks I own, but I want them all to look cohesive.

The End of Doreen Virtue

I’ve gotten the most hits on my blog from talking about Doreen Virtue and her sudden conversion to born-again Christianity! If you didn’t hear about it, she is now ONLY selling Jesus things, like books with Bible quotes in them. She left her animal rescue ranch in Hawaii (she gave away all of the animals except for her personal pets) and reportedly moved to Washington State, near Seattle. She said she needed to move away from Hawaii because it’s too expensive to live there. She disavowed a lot of her Tarot card and oracle decks and old books, and refuses to make money from them (the residuals she gets every time Hay House sells one). So, her income took a dive. Sadly, it’s THE END of Doreen Virtue in the metaphysical community! If you’ve bought oracle cards or books at a metaphysical store, you know how ubiquitous Doreen’s products are/were.

I hope you enjoy reading my blog in 2018.

My Cartoon Animations on Fiverr

I am creating animations on fiverr for YouTube! The animated videos are like cartoons. Here’s an example video I created about magician David Blaine and his infamous swallowing a live frog trick.

You can get a video like this with ANY MESSAGE you want written on it! And you can choose the style of music. See my new listing on fiverr (my name there is the same: newagestudies).

These short videos are e-cards. More fun than a paper greeting card, for about the same money. And it saves you the hassle of buying stamps and addressing envelopes! Just email the YouTube link to friends/family/co-workers.

I’m now on fiverr!

I opened a shop on fiverr called newagestudies. Fiverr is a freelance work website. It’s called “fiverr” because the offerings start at $5. So, I’m offering various things in my shop like animated videos and podcasting/podcast editing. I keep changing my offerings, or “gigs” as fiverr calls them, so check back to see what I have up!

I am starting to do life coaching but I don’t have it completely figured out yet. It’s going to incorporate the realms or hybrids that Doreen Virtue talks about (angels, fairies, mermaids, aliens….). Plus, a few hybrids that Tanis Helliwell talks about (rocks, goblins, trolls….). So step one will be to let me decide what realms you are in! I have this listing on fiverr: What Type of Spiritual Person or Realm are You? You can take a bunch of quizzes and/or I can read your photograph (some of the realms have distinct looks).

For now, check out my funny David Blaine video that I made for YouTube (and to learn the animation program I’m using). This is called a whiteboard animation, and you can get one in my fiverr shop!

My next idea is to design JibJab-style cartoon ecards for birthdays and get well wishes!

Kitty Cat Emergency

This little cutie is in the vet hospital with pneumonia!

This is my Maine Coon cat, Coconut. She was coughing (looks more like throwing up a hairball when cats do it) and sneezing once in awhile. Then she got shortness of breath (I saw her chest heaving and she was unusually tired). Just as I was deciding to take her into the vet again the next day (it was after hours), she started SCREAMING! It was horrifying. I drove her to the vet emergency room with my neighbor and we both thought she was going to die 😦

She is being treated with oxygen and antibiotics and is getting better! She might be home from the kitty cat ICU tomorrow or the next day. THANK GOD. She is my best friend. I have her sister, too, whose name is Licorice. Licorice is very magical and likes to hide in her “lair” (the walk-in closet). She will only let you see her if she deems you worthy (she hides from my pet sitter, even if I’m gone for a week). Coconut loves meeting new people and going for walks on a leash. She is very dog-like for a cat! She meows a lot and I love “talking” with her.

Coc-couch-roly

The vet still can’t figure out why she was screaming so loud. Maybe it was her way of saying, “Don’t wait ’til tomorrow to take me to the vet! TAKE ME NOWWWWWW!” My point is: animals DO COMMUNICATE with us! Not usually so loudly and dramatically as my Coconut. But do listen. This includes wild animals like birds.

Say a little prayer for ALL the cats in the whole world…especially the African lions who are so endangered now. Tomorrow is the anniversary for CECIL THE LION.

UPDATE: Coconut is home from the vet hospital ❤
