Over the last twenty years I have been enjoying a wonderful life that has enabled me to travel around the world. I am currently on board my boat “Adventurer” with my Husband & our 2 cats, with a plan to explore & cruise around the inland rivers & canals of central Europe over the next few years, taking the Tarot cards to different towns & villages along the way, so, if you see me, please stop by for a chat & of course, a Tarot reading 🙂
My first Tarot reading had such a powerful effect on me, that it gave me the courage to change my life completely, to create this wonderful new life with new opportunities & adventures that continue to be amazing.
It was from that Tarot reading, that I became empowered to make the changes that I needed, to live the life that I wanted & to be me.
This is why I am so inspired with reading the Tarot & why I aim to be there for as many people as I can with my cards. The Tarot still amazes me, I love the insight it holds, I love the infinite possibilities & subjects that the Tarot cards can read for & most importantly that it empowers “you”, as the client, with the knowledge & understanding that you seek, or with the foresight or hindsight that you need to move forward. Most of all, I love that at all times you always have free will.
Through being your Tarot Reader, I want to help to empower you, so you can live your own life to its fullest potential.
I am also a qualified Clinical & Dental Hypnotherapist, a Past Life & Regression Hypnotherapist & a Reiki Master Teacher of Usui Reiki, Kundalini Reiki & Karuna Reiki. I also had the honour of being taken on as an apprentice to study & learn Shamanism for 2 years with an Elder of the Lakota Tribe.

78 Days Later: Vanessa Barns Interview by Catherine Chandler
Earlier this year, Marcus Katz & Tali Goodwin published the book “Around the Tarot in 78 Days” (pub.Llewellyn) with an accompanying Tarot course. Vanessa Barns is one of those who took part in the course & following it’s completion, she decided to offer, on the Tarot Professionals site, 78 Tarot Readings to other professional members. Since then (September 10th, 2012) Vanessa has shown herself to be a very adept and gifted reader.
The author Markus Katz said…
“When Vanessa Barns carried her Tarot Reading Quest out (through Tarot Professionals), we were all watching the thread very closely, and she put in a truly incredible amount of work to maintain it and did not go AWOL. In fact, to do 78 readings in that way was an astonishing task and more time-consuming than you might even suspect. ”Good job, Vanessa, good job!”

Wonderful story Vanessa and, having some interaction with Spike, it sounds like you and Spike were made for each other. I totally agree that you are always learning with the Tarot and that’s what makes it so interesting, frustrating and special. Thank you for sharing.
