My name is Mihaela Albu, which translated is Mihaela “The white”. I was born in 1974. I’ve been living in Scotland, in all 3 regions of Romania (Transylvania, Moldavia, Greater Walachia) and now I am in Torquay, England. At one point or another I’ve been in each of the scenes illustrated in the tarot cards. I have met all the archetypes in the Major Arcane… I was in Hell and back, in Purgatory, but Heaven, also. I continuously search.
Every single person in my family had different out of ordinary experiences. I’ve had a few, myself and around the age of 33, I came to accept how well my intuition works. Gradually, I have welcomed all these out of ordinary occurrences and I have searched for explanations in various fields. I will describe these experiences in detail on the “Blog” section.
I have connections with the tarot cards for a long time. The cards came to me and somehow I knew what to do with them and what they are saying, as if the knowledge was downloaded directly into me. After connecting my intuition with the tarot cards, I’ve started to look for the scholar part, as well, so I can get what is happening at mental, not only at intuitive level. I found in books about tarot and about Reiki what I already knew inside myself.
I believe that Reiki and Tarot are powerful tools when used in a proper way. I am constantly looking for strings evidence between practical and the spiritual. In 2014 I have returned to the tarot and since then we are inseparable. I read books recommended by tarot and Reiki specialists, I watch all the documentaries and movies I can find, I exchange ideas about everything related with tarot and Reiki, on the internet, with professionals all over the world. I am getting into the history and the technicalities of them, but I keep in mind a quote from Dalai Lama: “How is that helping people?”. The difficulties and the lessons in my past are at use to know how to assist my clients in the present. Although I don’t take myself too seriously, I take seriously each and every one of my clients.
Some of my puberty books have been “The divine comedy” (Dante Alighieri), “Ramayana”(Valmiki), “Mahabharata”(Vyasa), The Legends of Olympus (Mitru), “Shogun”(James Clavel), Odyssey” and “Iliad” (Homer). Some have been the seeds planted for the future. Later, during adolescence I have discovered Mircea Eliade. He was a Romanian writer and mystic, living at that time in Chicago, the first author of a “History of religions”. His work was forbidden in Romania during the communism epoch, but somehow, most of his books could be found if you knew where to look for them. I had nicknames because I would read a few books a week. I remember a period when I have set myself to at least 111 pages a day. My mother used to force me to go out and play.
Everybody was using a form of divination, where I am coming from. There was divination using beans, playing cards, tarot cards, dreams, or coffee dregs in the cups. The earthquake in 1986 was felt by my brother Cristian, 10 minutes before it happened. He made all of us get out of the apartment. But such things were part of the normality. I will try to write as many of them as the time allows me to.
