Excerpts from our exclusive interview with Shivangi:

Could you please talk us through your background and your journey?

I am a Certified Tarot Reader and Counselor, Life Coach, Certified Reiki Master and a Member of the American Tarot Association. In addition, I have got some basic knowledge of Vedic Astrology. I practised in Chicago (USA) for 4 years before returning to India in 2019.

I am sensitive to a wide range of cultural nuances of both the Western and Eastern world. And welcome serving people from all walks of life for problems in any area in their lives.

Apart from that, I am also a professional Kathak Dancer. I grew up in a small town in western U.P. My educational qualification is B.Tech (from Chandigarh), and I have also worked in an IT company (in Noida) in the past. Then got married, moved to Kolkata, and became a homemaker. Thereafter moved to Chicago with my now ex-husband. But things did not go well because I think God/ Universe had different plans for me.

It was not easy to choose this unconventional profession, especially during the times of adversity and uncertainty. Still, I took that leap of faith and remained consistent in my efforts. And when I started seeing results within a year. I decided to continue on this path.

How did you discover your passion?

So, I learned reiki healing during my college days. But did not really take it seriously until when I was in total despair somewhere around 2015 in Chicago. I did not have a job; at the same time, I was going through a divorce.

I had no confidence in my skill sets or anything in life basically. But I always believed in God /Universe, miracles of prayers and synchronicities. Then I decided to practice reiki regularly for my growth and meditated daily.

I started asking God/Universe to show me a path, show me my life purpose, and show me how can I make a living and be totally independent. And one fine day I saw an Ad from a Tarot reader whom I used to approach for guidance that she had started teaching this skill. I immediately felt that it was a sign. So, I approached her to teach me and she agreed.

That is how I entered into the realm of Tarot and Energy work. I had also done an advanced course on How to merge the Art of Tarot with the concept of Psychology. There after a few years, I found another passion of teaching women “How to Awaken their Divine Feminine Power.” So that they live a fulfilled life.

Likewise, I started taking kathak classes simply as a hobby but now it has become my passion and I have done multiple certifications in that as well.

How do you manage to keep going despite the challenges? What drives you?

Getting great feedback from my clients and seeing the Transformative changes in their life is what drives me the most.

Also, I feel that God has chosen me to help others through my sessions/services, this is another driving force for me. Basically, I am passionate about influencing lives through practical spirituality.

I follow a strict routine to keep myself grounded and mindful. I never compromise on my daily spiritual practices. Also, try to stay connected to the source/god. I think that’s what helps me sail through the challenges.

Tell us something about Tarot reading and how does it help?

Tarot is a set of 78 different cards that work as a guiding tool based on intuition and on the divine interpretation. A Tarot reading helps you gain clarity in life especially when there is ambiguity or uncertainty. Tarot helps you take informed decisions.

The Tarot Counselling, I provide is an accurate tool to recognize the blocks in your life. It also provides remedies and actions that you can take to fix your life situation. It is a tool that dwells deeper into your Aura and understands your energy flow.

Before becoming a Tarot reader myself, I used to take Tarot Guidance and It did always helped me gain a new perspective towards my situation.

How exactly do your other services help a client?

My sessions are a combination of Tarot, Vedic Astrology, counselling skills and ancient Indian / spiritual wisdom. I have a holistic approach to bringing solutions to my client’s problems/situations. I like to find the root cause of their issues and provide the best remedies.

I help them see the bigger picture and provide easy practical steps that lead them towards a fulfilling change in life. My main motive is that after every session the client should achieve clarity, feel empowered and become ready to take the actions. With a wide variety of services that I offer, I have helped individuals dealing with depression, anxiety, career problems, relationship problems, money issues, emotional issues and so on.

Also, through a special program, I help women Awaken their Divine Feminine Powers to achieve their full potential.

What are some of the practices that you believe have helped you grow as a person?

There are a few:

1. Taking 100% responsibility of my life.

2. Being mindful and conscious of the choices that I make in life.

3. Having a Hobby

4. Following a spiritual/meditation routine.

5. When in doubt or demotivated then I take baby but consistent steps to reach my goals.

6. Having faith in my abilities/skills.

Last but not least, what advice would you give to our readers?

My biggest belief is that Life always works out no matter what. So, let’s never lose faith in Life, God and in yourself.

Difficult situations in life tend to shake our emotional, mental and/or physical stability. This results in our reduced ability to cope with those difficult situations, and more importantly, to bring change. With my services, behavioural intelligence and intuition sensitivity, I can also help you.

Remember: For every problem, there is a solution. But it is totally up to us whether we keep focusing on the problem or start seeking solutions.

So, choose wisely!
