Got Magic? T-shirts

My New Zazzle Shop: Black Cat Drawings

I saw a kid wearing a shirt like this at the David Blaine Live show 😉 It’s so cool! I just opened a Zazzle shop called BlackCatDrawings. Zazzle.com is like CafePress.com where you can design T-shirts and mugs for people to buy. This is my very first T-shirt I designed!

Got Magic Shirts

You just order this T-shirt in the size you want and Zazzle makes the shirt and sends it to you. To be honest, the prices aren’t super great. It’s not going to be as cheap as Walmart! As the designer/artist, I only get about $2 – $3 of the T-shirt sale. Most of my items will feature my cute cartoon art. Coming soon: a magic 8-ball design.

This “got magic?” shirt for kids and men is in my Zazzle shop.

Available in mens and boys/girls. Sizes go up to 6X. If you want a different color or style of shirt (you can get long sleeves and even sweatshirts), let me know and I can create it for you!

Last Tarot Cards Doreen Virtue Sells?

Interesting coincidence that Doreen Virtue is moving and the Tarot cards I ordered got tied up in MY move from Colorado Springs, Colorado, to Las Vegas! I ordered them months ago with the pre-order feature on Amazon.com but for some reason there is a glitch in that Amazon will send your pre-orders not to your new address but to whatever address you had on file at the time. So, I checked and saw they were delivered to my old address. I figured whoever is living at my old condo would just keep them! But the mailman (shoutout to the really nice mailman I had there) managed to get the cards forwarded to me (I don’t know how because of the postage that would be due.). So, YAY! I got the Animal Tarot Deck in the mail. These may be THE LAST TAROT CARDS Doreen Virtue ever sells! Doreen Virtue became a born-again Christian and announced she won’t be doing prophecy anymore 😦

Animal Tarot Deck not like Rider Waite Deck

Doreen did the Animal Tarot deck differently from most Tarot cards. She didn’t want any dark or negative cards like The Devil or The Tower (a building on fire with people jumping out the windows). So she renamed the cards with the help of Radleigh Valentine. This is good and bad. Since I don’t know Tarot cards that well, it’s helpful to have a simplified version. Like what’s a Hierophant? Why is there a Hanged Man? I still forget myself and need to look up the card’s meaning after a bit of panic. Each of these cards has a simple explanation of what it means written on the bottom of the card. That makes it super easy to learn the card meanings! But if you start using a regular Tarot deck you’re going to be confused all over again. I find it particularly confusing that some of the major arcana (the big cards, 0 – 21) are renamed. So what’s the Dreamer or Unity or Awakening or Life Experience? You will have to learn that these are the Fool card, the Hierophant, the Hanged Man and the Tower card.

Love the Cute Animal Artwork on these Animal Cards

I do like the cute animal artwork, but it’s a bit too sweet for Tarot cards IMO. It’s like greeting card art. Every card has a sweet little butterfly flying around. But some of the Tarot cards have deep, heavy meanings and that’s not conveyed. In fact, I was surprised to learn that the artist is a man because the style is so girly. He does do a great job drawing many different animals, but some of the expressions come out flat….I think because his art is half colored pencil and half digital art?

animal_tarot_major_arcana

 

Here’s a list of all the major arcana (0 – 12) cards in Doreen’s Animal Tarot Deck that have different names and/or imagery:

0 Dreamer (puppy) for Fool (joker)
5 Unity (polar bear) for Hierophant (wise spiritual woman)
9* Hermit (fireflies and a light) for the Hermit, same name this time (man in a cave or remote woods)
11 Strength (lion and a lamb) for Justice (person seated on a throne)
12* Awakening (giraffe looking down) for Hanged Man (person hanging from a tree branch)
14 Balance (zebra) for Temperance (angel or woman pouring water)
15* Ego (Siamese cat wearing expensive jewelry) for the Devil (Devil with chains to bind you with)
16* Life Experiences (bird sitting on a wood post) for the Tower (building on fire with people jumping out of windows)
20 Renewal (raccoon family) for Judgment (angel holding a trumpet)

UPDATES from March, 2018:

No longer Doreen Virtue Tarot Cards

Doreen Virtue has taken her name off of these Tarot cards! Now that she is a committed Christian, she doesn’t want her name on any Tarot cards or oracle cards. The Animal Tarot Cards are now listed under Radleigh Valentine’s name only (Doreen said he did most of the work on them, anyways) on the Hay House website.

I am now a Hay House Affiliate

Big news! I am now an affiliate with Hay House. This means when I review card decks and books and online courses 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!

Cecil the Lion’s Cub Killed by Trophy Hunter

CECIL_the_lion

Did you hear that Cecil the Lion’s cub, Xanda, just got killed by a hunter in Africa? The young lion was 6 years old and wearing a radio collar. He lived on the same lion preserve as Cecil did, and he also stepped over the invisible borderline of the park’s boundaries and was killed by a trophy hunter! The hunter likely wanted a lion head to mount on his wall 😦 Too sad. Lion hunting is still a big business in Zimbabwe, Africa. A hunter pays about $50,000 for the permits and a hunting guide. Crazy!

By the way, Donald Trump, Jr. has been photographed with a dead spotted LEOPARD that he killed! And a dead ELEPHANT. Sick.

As we ascend into a higher vibration world, the hurting of animals will stop.

I drew this Cecil the Lion as a tribute to him. Color prints available in my Etsy shop, black cat drawings. And a black-and-white version you can print at home.

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!

My Realms Quizzes

cupid_angel_quiz

If you don’t know, these quizzes are based on Doreen Virtue’s realms book and workshop. Realms are like human hybrids. You can be part Angel, part Cupid Love Angel, part Alien, part Flower Fairy and many more! I have included EVEN MORE INFO and MORE REALMS than you get with Doreen.

AND I have LIFE ADVICE specific to each realm!

I loooove studying the different realms. It’s very fascinating!

So, what realms am I?

I am part Tree Fairy, part Alien and part Angel.

What realms are Doreen Virtue?

Part Mermaid and part Rockstar Angel. I had to determine her realms as part of the certification process to be a Realms Reader.

UPDATE: I had my realms quizzes on fiverr but I took them down. I am working on putting ALL of the quizzes in ONE FILE that you can easily buy and download!

 

 

My Jesus Book

Did you know I am a published author? Kinda, sorta. I wrote a short ebook about Jesus and self-published it on Amazon. AND you may be able to read it FOR FREE! If you are a Prime member, it will likely come up on your Kindle as a freebie in their “lending library.”

The Jesus I believe in is a happy, friendly guy like the cartoon version you see here!
