Bonnie is a very experienced Tarot reader, as well as an intuitive guide and dream analyst. She also uses a bit of astrology, numerology and works with angels and guides. Bonnie allows her readings to find their own way, so that the level of the reading leaves her client feeling empowered, and ready to make a positive difference in their life.
In her readings, Bonnie feels she is being given the opportunity to positively impact another. She honors her client by paying close attention to them, and to their needs. Sometimes the questions that are asked by the client are not necessarily the ones that need to be asked. Sometimes the Tarot answers the question that needs to be answered, after which all other questions can be asked.
Bonnie has studied the Tarot extensively. She is a certified Tarot Grand Master, Reiki Master, and a teacher of Reiki. She has served in various capacities with the American Tarot Association and the American Board For Tarot Certification. She uses the skills she has learned from her extensive experience, along with the strong intuition which she inherited from the women in her family, to provide insightful guidance to her clients. Bonnie also works as a writer, having been published in two Tarot anthologies, having written two books on the Tarot with Schiffer Publishing, and has an extensive body of Tarot book and deck reviews, interviews and articles which have been published online.
Bonnie also has a variety of professional experience, all of which helps her guide her clients in a balanced and professional manner. She has a B.A. in psychology, and served in the military for over ten years. After serving for twenty-five years in the medical technology field, Bonnie felt that it was time to use her skills to help people in a different way. After encountering so many people who had been willing to share their wisdom, she decided she would like to do the same. She began offering readings, with her focus on empowering her clients and helping them heal. Her intention is to gift them with tools that they can use to make a positive difference in their own lives.
Bonnie’s reading style is to nurture and empower her clients – to help them see their options. Her focus is on her clients, and on their questions and their issues. It is the client's time to ask whatever they want, and to gain as much clarity as they are ready to accept. Bonnie sees herself as a “middleman”, using the images and symbols in the Tarot to bring through the wisdom that her clients need to hear. She will help them to word their questions so that they receive the most in-depth answers possible.
Her view is that each reading reflects that specific moment in time. What is seen in that reading will go in a certain direction, were her client to take no action. Bonnie sees a reading as a multi-faceted process: (1) form the question, (2) ask the question, (3) get as much clarity as possible, (4) define the client’s options, (5) look at the pros and cons for each option and (5) give the client tools that they can work with to take whatever action they have decided to take to move their life forward, in a positive direction.
Bonnie empowers her clients with tools to empower themselves. These tools are whatever the client feels most comfortable with, including dream work, connecting with with guides and angels, affirmations, meditation, ritual, visualization, automatic writing and journaling. Each tool has a process, and each tool offers benefits to the person using it. Overall, Bonnie feels that our world is only as big as we make it. If we dream the big dreams, we will achieve the big success! Ultimately, we need to follow our passion, and be true to ourselves.
