A Poem about the missing “Maiden” aspect of the human psyche.
Contrary to the trinity, this theory explains four parts. Jung spoke of the conscious, the unconscious, the anima/animus, the “gateways” to higher states of consciousness.
I understood the psyche as a trinity- conscious, subconscious and “super conscious” as the gateway through the third eye (pineal gland). My Anima is a mirror reflection of my ego, which reaches enlightenment along with my conscious self, the Anima being someone who “lives in my head” but not a different part of my psyche.
As a master of the Tarot I easily identified YHVH- a name for God, as the court cards of the Tarot. I understand the King is my conscious ego self, the Queen is my Animus, the Knight many would say the knight represents the “son” of God, the Maiden is my inner magickal child (fairy).
This poem was written while channeling.
I’ve got a royal family in my head
The king of the Y- the father of time
The Queen of the H- the mother of the line
The Knight of the V- the brother to see
The Princess of the H- The young feminine psyche
Together my psyche spells YHVH
Father mother son daughter
The four parts of my mind
I have been living in a trinity
Incomplete, unknown to me
I found there is more than just the three
I have rescued the maiden from obscurity
Giving her life through word and deed
Making her conscious, breathing her back to reality,
Weaving her story through me,
Three times three so mote it be
Arise Maiden of the psyche!
Walk again in the hearts of men
Inspire the Artist once more,
Abstract muse of poetic lore
Strike your blade, open the door
As Queen Kali lays waste to the old forms
The old Gods cannot weather the storm
Princess bring us fresh mythologies of astral technologies
To help us view the skew as brand new
Turning our minds to that certain hue
She is the Justice of True Blue

KORE: A Maidens Journey from Darkness to Light
“Buddha greeted me and asked if I liked my birthday present. I asked what he was referring to. He sat me down for a lovely vision.
I saw myself as a child dancing and running at the Buddhas feet. There were other children laughing and dancing with me. The Buddha said to me “You told me you wanted to be a real girl.” I saw myself begging the Buddha to make me real and felt my desire to become real just like Pinocchio. This explained to me on a deep internal level why I first chose to incarnate so long ago. He said the present he had given me was the “record player in your head.”
Sometime after this vision I heard a voice in my mind speak…
“If we can get you to believe just for one day that God is your D.J. we can change the world.”
God indeed was my D.J. For weeks I heard songs in my head as if they were in reality. Sometimes the music would get loud enough to drowned out external sounds. When you’ve got a radio in your head (Yes “Radio Head”) playing songs like “I’ve never known love like this before!” and “You’re love keeps lifting me higher than I’ve ever been lifted before.” You get a spring in your step and a big smile on your face! I felt so grateful that God was playing music for me- showing me a miracle. I felt like a miracle!”
As a follow up to my youtube video “Exploring The Mystic Art of the Tarot” I would like to share details of how the Tarot works and why it is an invaluable tool designed to enlighten and guide us.
As a professional psychic I have worked at nightclubs, events and psychic fairs as well as on the phone and in my home. The diverse work background of locations, people and cultures has trained me to give advice with an open mind respectful of the clients religion, belief system and personal ethics. I have performed over ten thousand readings during my seventeen year career.
I studied psychology along with developing my intuition. While healing my clients through Tarot readings, I was also learning about and healing my own insecurities and misdirection.
Through having access to clients all over the world with all different kinds of issues and circumstances I have come to understand the commonality of universal life themes as described in the Tarot. Combining my natural intuition, empathy, spiritual guidance and the symbolism of the Tarot I see and feel the path of my client.
How a Reading is Performed:
I first ask for the full name and sign/birth date. I usually have a couple of Tarot decks available to choose from including the Alister Crowley Thoth deck and the Robin Wood Tarot.
I ask the client to shuffle the cards and think about the past month of their life, how they feel now, and what they would like to see happen in the next three months. Then I ask them to think of three questions they would like to have answered. I instruct the client to see their thoughts like a movie in their head, mindful of their feelings as well.
When the client is done shuffling I ask them to cut the cards once. I then lay out the cards in a traditional Celtic cross ten card spread. I rely on “helper” cards; additional cards I place on top of the primary ten to aid me explaining details.
The first two cards speak of current situations, people and influences as well as challenges. The reading moves on the describe the past month, the month yet to come, up to three months into the future as well as mental, emotional and subconscious assessments. Often advice is given through mental images or intuitive communication with my spiritual guide. Speaking of dreams and interpretation is common as well. I encourage my clients to keep journals of their thoughts and dreams. I find a client that keeps tabs on themselves is easier to teach and guide.
The Tarot readings reveal clear insight into your life, covering all major aspects and personal concerns. As a reader I am responsible for communicating your path, mirroring your inner self back to you and advise on goals and changes.
Beyond behavior patterns, beyond family history, beyond chemical imbalances; the transpersonal psychology of the Tarot reaches all levels of your outer life and inner self. Compared to traditional psychology, spiritual counseling is personal, interactive, healing and most of all actionable. Glimpsing into the future allows you to prepare for or work on changing events; giving you creative control over your life. Utilizing a skilled spiritual counselor will help you to understand your self and change your life.

A Testimonial from an E-mail Reading:
“I was deeply affected by my reading with Korinne. She was able to cut to the heart of every question I brought to the table and offered wise, valuable advice on how to proceed forward in my life. Because my reading with Korinne was done via email, I saved my reading, and I re-visit it every now and again, which brings even more insight into my unfolding path. Korinne is a gifted, knowledgeable spiritual adviser, and I would recommend her work to anyone who seeks guidance about any issues in life.

We both came away with a great deal more self-awareness, and wisdom. We cannot thank you enough nor recommend you enough to anyone wanting to delve into the deeper mysteries of existence! Can’t wait to see you again for more. Namaste!!!

Recorded November 2, 2004
Written in “article style” channeled from an unknown spiritual teacher.
The sickness of the mind can be broken down into categories. The first is the elusive mind. This indicates that the person who is suffering from this will be unaware of their problems. Their will is weak and they succumb to many maladies.
The one that concerns us here is the derangement of the mind that blocks itself off from other parts of the self. Here the patient is playing different roles in the same body.
There are many levels of growth going on at once. Each split self is learning lessons, yet when married into one being- these separate selves can look extreme.
The soul has agreed that in this life they will take on more than one ego, in hopes to integrate these selves. It is a life journey of integration. Yet each separated self grows and evolves as the one does heal.
Verbal communication with the other “selves” is possible. Just as speaking with a spirit, we can communicate with any fraction of our self. When you become aware of the other “selves” you can then counsel them into healing.
Each separated self has individual needs and ways of expression. One side may need religious expression or exhalation, another self may need a strong mother to bring her about. When in communication with the other selves, you can fulfill each need as it manifests. The more you feed the healthy needs of the split selves, you can integrate into a whole loving being.
Compassion for our split selves also gives us compassion toward our fellow-man. Seeing our split selves as ego- selves, fabricated personalities that teach us lessons. We can also see how each person that affects our lives is but a larger ego-self system. Then we can begin to understand the concept that we are all one. Having all come from the same source we are all aspects and “fabricated personalities” of the One.

This is the unedited version of an article published in Whole Living Journal March/April 2009
There are rumors amongst the newagers and some on Oprah- that collectively humanity is experiencing a shift in conscious awareness. We can see it in the movies- such as the new Jim Carey “Yes Man”, 20?? “What the Bleep do We Know?”, 20?? The Secret, as well as one I just viewed entitled “Indigo”- where the main character states that her grandfather is “dimensionally challenged”.
As a collective we approach this time of change with a mix of knowledge and mysterious wonder. Not everyone will have the jarring, immediately life altering experiences shake them into awareness. I believe for most of us the change will be gradual. There will be more dreaming, clear intuition about ourselves and others, a greater perspective.
When I turned 30. I had been a professional psychic, practicing Wiccan Priestess, Buddhist initiate of Guru Dev and Reiki Master for several years. I earnestly pursued my faith, psychological practices, and healing in a quest for enlightenment.
Directly after my 30 th birthday my awareness began to shift greatly. I experienced a series of awakenings that took glorious nirvana like form. During this time I spoke in rhyme, could hear my spirit guides and astral chatter like a radio in my head, and recorded many insightful answers to life’s questions.
After I was reconnected with our consensual reality, I began to research what happened to me. Ram Dass implied in his work entitled “Be Here Now” that I had gone through awakening with “my ego on”. The books Spiritual Emergency by Groff and “The Call of Spiritual Emergence” by ___, along with the theory of Self Actualization (Maslow) brought me to a place of acceptance.
I would like to share with you a simple yet inspiring tale that I experienced during my spiritual emergence. To illustrated how the shift can be something so gradual- so personal, not realize just what is shifting.
On a cold wintry day I was sipping hot tea and looking out my sliding glass door. A lush red cardinal landed in the snow on my porch. Red feathery bird nestled into the soft blankets of white snow. I said hello to the bird, and thanked it for being there. Cardinals had become a symbol of my grandmother who had passed a couple of years prior. Evelyn Fay liked birds- but cardinals were her favorite.
The bird flew away and momentarily came back with a sprig of red berries in its beak. The bird crept down from the railing of the porch approaching the glass door and laid the berries down abruptly flying away again. A gift I thought, that bird just left me an offering. I sipped my tea and delighted in the feeling of being noticed by the bird. Yet not a moment later the bird came back in very much the same way, with another sprig of red berries, and laid them again on the spot where the previous berries were placed. I began to question what was happening, “Do you know what’s going on little bird?”. I got the very strong sense that the bird was aware of me, in fact that the bird was Gods way of showing off to me. A third time, with a third sprig the bird placed the berries in the same spot. By this time I was well aware of the bird in its role as messenger- conduit of communication between me and the All.
In those moments I felt as if I was watching, interacting, communicating with God through the experience. I felt such a personal relationship with God, as if being spoken to directly through symbols and transference. I felt great love and adoration from the universe. It reminded me of the Disney ladies that could sing with the animals of the forest.
As I have learned nature and everything around us vibrates with the essence of God. As the Gnostic Gospels of Thomas quotes Jeshua “Split a piece of wood; I am there. Lift up the stone, and you will find me there.” As well as “To enter the kingdom of heaven you must be like a child” and “The kingdom of heaven is within you.” All of these quotes were directly experienced through this simple observance. The light that is God is in everything, my childlike wonder, and the heaven I felt inside.
During writing this article the song Dear Prudence came on- “The wind is low- the birds will sing- that you are a part of everything.”

Reality vs Creativity
By Occult Priestess Korinne
Nay Sayers use “Reality” as the reason to be restricted. This sets up a tao dynamic of seeming opposites when you consider the perception of the visionary who’s art seems to live and breath before their eyes. The tao of mundane reality vs creative reality.
I cannot break it down into science vs religion- the tooth fairy vs lab tech. Extremes happen at each level of experience/function/form. Not all anything is anything- we are all one and we are all unique. Oneness is eternal- individuality is dimensionally time based.
One side states our world and reality are fixed- like a clock, we are all toy soldiers who carry genes, etc. through a mechanism called time. There is no reason nor point to life- only to continue the chain of existence.
The other side states that we are all one, we are eternal, we are what we call God manifest in the third dimension (where perception is based on the rules of time/space and dimension.). Our universe is the story book we live in as human characters on the stage of life. Reality is mutable in nature – magick is real.
Finding out what side of that fence you are on is one of the first steps toward evolution of consciousness. If you find yourself on the Fixed side of the fence- I do not know how to find you, I simply do not know where that place is.
If you find you have created in your life- brought something new to our world that was not here before you came- such as a piece of art, song lyrics, your performance in a play, a dance recital, public ritual- or that interesting cup of tea you mixed today. These are some simple ways we become creators in this play of life. (Advanced students can create their own reality according to their highest will.)
Maybe you have never landed on the moon, but you have been there in your mind- mental experiences so mirror actual physical ones that there are parts of our consciousness that cannot tell the difference between the two. That being a fact imagine, remember all the places you have been in your mind, all the conversations, the dreams, the intensity, the peace.
Now shift your focus to your heart- the home of our feelings. If the mind thinks then surely the heart feels. Just like the mind it stores memories, scenes, and wishes. Take your time and ask your heart what it remembers from the past.
The physical experiences (REALITY) trigger the mental and emotional systems- thus giving you three ways of experiencing life. 1. Physical tactile sensory 2. Mind thought judgment 3. Heart feeling emotion.
A truly balanced life incorporates all three above notions. When the three are working in harmony with each other- the partnership creates depth in each perception. Heart can experience intuition, mind can experience cosmic consciousness or oneness, body can become a “pure vehicle”, a temple for the mind and heart.
Having the mind heart and body working in partnership brings about an alchemical change in the human- Enlightenment- to be anointed, such as Buddha or Christ. “You can do these things and more…”
We can do it!

Hello Bloggers and avid Readers-
Our Latest Question comes from our comment section once again.
“All of my life I have felt pulled at times to be more spiritual. It only comes in spurts. I am an Eclectic Pagan, but I feel no pull to one particular God/dess. There are times when certain ones grab me by the collar and direct me for a time to accomplish a goal (for example, I was moping around about my book that I was writing. Saraswati spoke to me in a song of Indian music I was listening to. Within 3 months, my book was done). Why can’t I stay focused on daily practice? I am 36, I have accomplished many things in my life but a sense of whole connectedness to the Gods.”
I can really relate to the feeling of being called and then grounded. When we are on a spiritual path, we must also be on the path of self-healing. The path of self-healing is another aspect that contributes to your souls evolution as a whole. What is spirituality or incarnation for, if not the evolution of your soul? Spirituality contributes to your souls growth, as well as childbearing, hard work, breakups and break downs- this life is about lessons.
To look at our “spiritual path” from the “big picture” perspective is necessary to enable us to correctly understand the “lessons” we are learning from everyday life. To see with a birds eye view what we are lacking and what is going great. Evaluate your life.
Taking into account that The Questioner communicates with non-physical divine presence in the form of a God or Goddess, adds another beautiful element to her spiritual tapestry. Communing with a “God Consciousness” is a blessed and sometimes difficult growing experience. Kali Ma or Hecate may have a lesson of death and rebirth to teach you, or Cerridwen may want you to throw your romantic partnership into her bubbling cauldron. Being picked up by the scruff of the neck and led by a divine energy does seem harsh. This particular kind of “teaching” only happens when we are unwilling to take part in our own growth process, unwilling to sacrifice some lie or false judgment that is impeding us. The Gods are good.
I found the “Voice” of my Gods softened and became more compassionate when I softened and became more compassionate. We must remember we are living in a world of mirrors especially when we are communicating with spirit. If you smile at a mirror it smiles back- if you frown at the mirror, it frowns back. Remember this quick trick while exploring the astral or inner realms.
The reason we feel the “inertia” of rising and falling, or being magickal and then being mundane- is because the magickal must be incorporated into your daily life.
There are MANY obstacles keeping us from staying in a state of “High Vibration” or Inspiration (“in – spirit” thank you Wayne Dyer). Any annoyance can set off an agitated mind into a state of low vibration. The calm mind deals with trauma or lives daily “bullshit” with ease and confidence. So then the next trick is to CALM our minds. To restrain ourselves from participating in and contributing to the “DRAMA TRAUMA” of our friends, loved ones and ourselves.
I stepped out of the Wiccan circle, and entered the Buddhist refuge in order to calm my neurotic mind and heal or “re-program” or “de-program” my constantly repeating negative thought patterns.
Before I found the soothing energy of Buddhist mantra and yoga, I used the sharp knife of “mystical” western psychology to dissect the inner workings of my fragile emotional/psychic system. I became a “Jungian”- worshipping at the altar of mental brilliance as it perceives spiritual knowledge. You see the “Logical” brain (left hemi) can only understand mysticism, abstract concepts or jibber jabber by communing with the “Spiritual” brain (right hemi). Jung displayed the talent of making the mystical seem possible- through his logical view of the divine and how the divine manifests in the forms of “Synchronicity”, “the collective unconscious”, “the Shadow” even the “Holy Spirit”. Jung labeled and popularized these ANCIENT concepts to the chagrin of his scrutinizing peers and teacher/mentor “Ziggy” Freud.
So to share my journey I tell you I studied Jung and used his philosophy in my life, and in my brain. I then found the “self help” movement. Through books like “CoDependent No More”, “Yesterday I Cried” and “Healing the Shame the Binds You” I learned how I was programmed to think negative thoughts, and propagate negative actions through my family and society of origin. I then proceeded to heal my childhood wounds with the loving salve of Buddhism, facing my fears, becoming lovingly but blatantly honest with myself and others, dodging fights or people who wanted to bait me into a conflict, I lost my *need* for a romantic partner (but not my desire for one), I became compassionate toward those who wished me harm, I practiced loving until I got much better at it, I LET GO of people and situations that kept me in low spirits.
I kept detailed journals of my thoughts and feelings, always keeping an ear and an eye out for divine guidance. I came to a point where I could hear my guides clearly and recorded the information they imparted through clairaudience and visual symbols in my third eye. We must be diligent when we begin to receive clear communication- to decipher the symbols we receive and get at the root of the message.
For those who cannot hear their guides please purchase some sort of ORACLE- either Tarot or Runes, any divinatory tool that will answer more than “yes”, “no” questions and comes with an instruction book(let). The Oracle will give you a window into your own self, to peek at your personal situations and how you are being guided at any given time. If you do not have the time to learn an Oracle- then hire one. A skilled psychic counselor will easily identify the “issues” in your life and give you practical advice on how to proceed for the highest good of all involved. (I am for hire, occultpriestess.com.)
To sum this up- Life goes from magickal to mundane with your rate of vibration. High vibration = inspired, low vibration = depressed. Understand, during a Large Chunk of the journey, low vibration can be expected. In my observation most of us do not reach a state of “calm” until the age of thirty. Oprah says something like- ‘We are idiots in our twenties’- her sentiment being- that is when she made her most blatant mistakes, and learned many of the harsher lessons (as a reverberation of traumas in her childhood- I do not think Oprah added that point). I do not wish to put this judgment on all 20 year olds, there are always exceptions and exceptional people. Understand we must go through our shadows to see the light of truth. “Drama” and even very serious situations are manifestations of a dis-ease in our subconscious. If we cannot heal our past pain in our mind/heart or subconscious, we are destined to play out our pain on the stage of life in the form of drama and serious situations. However just like the mirror, when your drama turns to loving karma- the play gets a LOT better!
When you get the hang of your “Spiritual legs”. Once you learn to walk on the rocky boat of ups and downs, sacrifice what no longer serves your highest good, the wild sea will begin to slow. The waves will finally come to a rest and you will see the beginning of your new life without fear.
One last Tip: Try the Lesser Banishing Ritual of the Pentagram as described in the book Modern Magick by Donald Michael Kriag. YouTube has dozens of videos on the “LBPR” and some even have proper pronunciation of the ritual :). When the LBRP is done on a semi regular basis, the drama in your life will begin to dissipate. The LBRP raises your vibration with the light of the Arch Angels and Sacred names of God- thus causing those who are “trapped” in the dark to avoid your light. (Metaphors) Taught as a ritual of protection, this practice will strengthen your aura and improve your “Life/StagePlay”.

Salutations to my Guru Sri Mamua Devi and my Guru’s Guru.
Thank you so much for allowing me to share this with you. What a wonderful question! I am very pleased. Questions are most welcomed – I will explore this topic as in-depth as anyone would like, because it’s important!
Yesterday Christopher Asked: How would you interpret beings like land spirits? Are they non-physical beings separate from ourselves or symbolic representations created by our own minds to help us interpret a local energy?
Hello Christopher, nice to hear from you. I do remember your wonderful herms and offerings to the earth. I took the liberty of sneaking onto your “myspace” page to grab some of your pictures. I would never be able to describe what you do with words.
Christopher works with the “Nature Spirits” of the elements to heal and nurture our mother Earth. My first exposure to nature spirits were Fairies, goblins, trolls or just about any creature in the Lord of the Rings. I learned these “Elemental Energies” can be placed into 4 classes of distinction – Earth, Air, Fire, and Water. When I began to learn about Reiki I was taught there are large nature spirits called “Devas”. Devas are more “archetypal” energy compared to say a fairy – meaning fairies have more individual personalities, while Divas are an “intelligent presence”.
I have experienced communication with both fairies and Devas. There is no doubt in my mind that I was talking to an intelligence “outside” myself. There is no problem having the experience of communicating with a presence. The problem comes about when we try to explain our experience. I am sure you will agree.
I have come to understand that the nature spirits and Devas are existing on a “higher plane” (Much like spirit guides), above our limited third dimension. Those people who have the ability to shift their Awareness (consciousness) to a higher plane- can and do communicate with a myriad of non- third dimensional intelligence. In simple terms, our physical senses are limited to what the body can perceive. Our consciousness is unlimited.
Christopher I imagine what you feel when you are communing with the Earth. I bet you have had those blissful, sacred, holy feelings, and possibly some visions as well.
Many people have come to this particular time in Human/Earth evolution to give back to our planet in healing ways. Those who choose nature healing as a path are usually endowed with “special skills” such as communication with nature spirits and keys to other realms (non third dimensional time/space). I myself have been entertained in the lush green forest of the fairies.
