In 2019 I jumped into the spiritual realm full time. I quit a part time day job and fully embraced being full time self employed. I was very busy with Tarot readings, wellbeing shows, Pagan festivals, with my other business Fenix Flames, also managing a band and my partners music Earth Tree Healing.
Life was good, maybe neglecting taking more time out for myself. But with my drive to succeed, to do good and help others, with self employment comes sacrifice.
We had a 2020 booked up, a holiday planned. Saving up for a big holiday in 2021.
New year’s Eve 2019 was an enjoyable and refreshing/ sobering group gong bath and Cacao ceremony, whilst suffering a nasty virus. (???) Then. Rumours, new reporting of a new virus spreading… and… well unless you don’t read the news. You know the rest. I’m so, so sorry if you have lost love ones, family, friends, colleagues as a result of the Covid-19 virus.
From March 23rd 2020. My readings and work virtually stopped. 40 booked up appointments disappeared, with people understandably feeling uncertain about their financial situation and struggling. I didn’t and don’t qualify for any benefits or grants, set up by the government to help self employed people, as I was working part time in 2018-2019 tax returns. My partner also apparently earns too much. – Not enough to cover rent and food though. Yes we were up shit creek along with many others, with a UK Government, that will be dissected for many years to come about its actions and inactions.
In some ways my partner and I have always prepped for a ‘zombie apocalypse’ and isolation. So our dry food cupboards were already fully stocked, cat food and toilet roll being always at a substantial amount. There has been dark days, anxiety days, but never doubt that we would be ok and get through this. Switching the news off, not feeding negativity with doom and gloom. There is much value and reward in focusing on the good, helping and supporting others where we can, laughter, keeping safe and social distancing any interactions. Planning the future. Doing podcasts with the wonderful Ian Timothy at LizianEvents has been insightful, hilarious and long may it continue. So….
At this point I had to adapt to a different way of working. I took my workshops online and had to push harder for online tarot readings. Reassuring my clients that I can connect exactly the same, as face to face. I tune into your spirit guides, spirits/ passed over loved ones give me messages. Lots of positive feedback too.
Because of my ability to adapt and make changes in my working life. I believe the universe had provided. It has given us just enough to survive, which I am very, very grateful for. I’d like to thank all of my clients for believing in me. Providing me with the sustainability to continue helping others. Keeping this self employed person continuing through the struggles.
I hope you are all staying safe and well. Look at the true potential in ‘you’ for when we get though this. Stay positive, stay happy, we will get through this together and you probably need a bit of a haircut…

It’s now a nearly a week since UK Lockdown happened. My heart goes out to your families, friends, loved one and anyone it touches. The Covid-19 outbreak is devastating to lives, our way of life… Emotional, physical, mental wellbeing and financial. (I’m not here to get into the politics, the should have done, conspiracies, opinion) I am here to help where I can with my gifts. Together, being sensible we will all get through this.
I’ve had to move my readings and workshops temporarily solely online. So if you do want to book a reading via Skype, Zoom, Facebook Messenger, Facetime etc. Please contact me. +44 07887490203 email@example.com
The practical advice. It important for your mental health, to not get drawn into fear and darkness. Obsessing over the bad things in the media will not help. Listening to official government advice to lessen the spread of this thing will help save lives. Whilst self isolating please do try to get fresh air and exercise. Even if that means opening a window and in a small cleared area of your home/ garden if you have one. I’ve been going for social distancing walks and am feeling the benefits. Read and watch things that make you laugh, indulge in a good book. If you are reading this. You are able to download the amazon kindle app with free books. You are also able to have an online reading with me. (Don’t worry. I’m able to tune in.)
Do what makes you happy. Don’t harm others. Be kind. Meditate. It’s easy to get frustrated and take things out on loved ones. Find a way to keep sane. We will get through this together.

We spent last night (December 31st 2019) sober (I don’t drink a lot nowadays) – I love my tea.
For New Year. I attended a Gong Bath, Cacao Ceremony, setting intentions. It was wonderful. We met, sat in a circle with amazing people on their own journeys. You enter as strangers, leave as friends, with a shared experience. Whilst fireworks were lighting up the midnight skies. We lay in our ‘nest’ journeying to healing vibrations and chanting, resetting. Into the early hours we planted our intentions and goals to seed. Thank you Mahala. Earthtones Sound Therapy
#unfoldment#nurturing cards were chosen. 2019 I lost to spirit 2 close aunties in my family and my business partner Sarah Louise Kay atFenix Flames. It has been really hard. I’ve realised last year, I was caring so much for everybody else, I forgot a little bit about me. As I say to a lot of my clients. If you are not in a good place yourself, you can’t give as much to others to help them through their pain and troubles.
I encounter and help many people who seek solace from trauma, healing from bad experiences, loss. People who grasp onto hope, in the face of desperation. What I do enables people with self confidences and hope, to utilise their own strength, to move forward in life.
Let go of the past, live for today, dream for the future. – Angela

Exhausted and exhilarated after a busy weekend at Lincolnshire Well Being Show and a few Tarot Parties too. I am incredibly grateful with the opportunities I’ve been given by Liz and Ian at Lizian Events. Being self employed with my Tarot and Fenix Flames Businesses. Days off are a rare luxury. Hard work and helping people is humbling. Being part of the community for the shows brings great joy to me. They are a family. You are family. Running businesses, sharing knowledge, networking opportunities. The support, laughter, camaraderie and friendships are touching. Its great exposure too. It is the canvas for us to VLOG and utilize our social media reach. These shows help us test products, gain feedback. I meet lots of new customers and get extra business off the back of these shows which is brilliant. http://www.lizianevents.com/

Guided Meditations with live music. We began at the Nottingham Well Being Show the other weekend. Live Guided Meditations spoken by myself, Angela Barker accompanied by live music performed by the exceptionally talented Multi-instrumentalist Claudine West to raise vibrations. That way Claudine can literally paint the music landscape and note reactions to my words as we go. To the heartbeat, the exploration, to visions, feelings, calm. Its also great to get first hand feedback and share experiences from the visitors.
