My name is Christin and I’m happy you’ve found your way here. I am a devoted wife and mom with two sons, one on his way to college and one in grade school.
Professionally, I work as a freelance writer and social media manager, artisan, soon to be business owner and of course intuitive tarot reader. I have read Tarot for nearly 30 years now. It started as a hobby in my teens and quickly grew into a lifelong passion.
My History | How I Found Myself on This Path
In the mid-90’s, I began to actively pursue a more spiritual path after years of feeling no real sense of purpose. I had no direction or well defined goals, and often questioned the deeper meaning behind things.
I spent a lot of time doing what I “thought” I should be doing, or what I was told I should do, only to meet with disappointment and realize I was back at square one, feeling unfulfilled and uninspired.
I was drawn to question and explore a variety of spiritual paths and faiths beyond the stricter religious environment I had been brought up in. I just never believed there was only one “right” path, particularly since I had never heard anyone proclaim from on high that theirs was the wrong one ;).
I also experienced a lot of loss early in life. One of my friends died at 18 after being hit by a drunk driver. My grandfather who was my rock and inspiration through a difficult childhood died of cancer. I lost my own first child.
Somewhere in the darkest parts of my depression though; I always knew there was more than I was perceiving. At one point I was very tired spiritually and emotionally, and I sat down on my sofa, put my head in my hands and cried, with a weary heart that needed answers.
It was that day that I stumbled on the genuine art of meditation. It wasn’t about forcing myself to be quiet or trying to de-stress etc. This time was different, it was an unselfish act of listening, of truly wanting to hear what Spirit had to say, not wanting to hear what I wanted to hear.
I wasn’t looking for some great “wizard in the sky” to comfort me or create miracles before my eyes. At that point, I was tired and empty. I only wanted to know “what gives?”.
The coming months brought many realizations and new found determination. I felt uplifted, my life was filled with a stronger sense of purpose and many “hidden truths”, aka Universal Laws, were revealed to me, because I was finally ready to not just wish for easy answers, but to do the hard work of self-actualization.
As I learned to discover the worth of my own soul; I was shown that at the darkest moments of despair; I was being supported although I didn’t perceive it at the time. I had always felt that I was somehow lacking, so I focused all my attention on my perceived limitations.
I postponed joy, always believing happiness would “hit me” one day when I acquired this or that, or got this title or that promotion etc. After some hard work and introspection, I discovered tools to “take back” my life and to live it on my terms – and now I spend time encouraging others to do that for themselves.
All I needed I had within myself, just waiting for my discovery of it, and guess what? If you are here reading this, feeling a little lost or like you just aren’t quite sure “who” you are? … All of these wonderful things are within you too!
The Mission of Twilight Tarot
Today, I take my love of Tarot and writing and use my skills to help people to find their own higher truths and follow their true path in life. For 18 years I developed my former site that you may be familiar with. Today, I am inspired by a similar, but more streamlined vision and after some growing pains, Twilight Tarot was born.
I believe that the Universal wisdom depicted in the Tarot can impart greater seeking and understanding, so the simple mission of this site is to provoke thought, awareness and higher understanding in fellow seekers.
Thanks again for dropping by and getting to know me. I hope you will enjoy your visit here and find something to benefit you.
