Ok, let’s start now with smashing the idea of “I don’t want to have a tarot reading because I don’t want to know my future blablabla”. I agree and what I have experienced with Novi is exactly the opposite of “knowing the future”.
Throughout my travels I have met a few psychics: astrologers, palm readers, tarot or oracle readers and I really started to see it with a different angle. Indeed, it’s not much about what the future holds…
It’s more about what the present holds so you build up the right things for the future and clear the right things from the past.
At least that’s my perception. I take this as a guidance and it’s been very useful to confirm things that I knew deep down but feared to acknowledge. It’s mostly been very reassuring for me to know that intuitively I knew it already and that my inner guidance was working well.
I had been resistant to see Novi the first time I heard about her and I realized I was full of fears and I consequently did not meet her then. Those fears completely vanished thanks to more understanding of this practice and interesting encounters and the second time the opportunity presented itself, I decided I would contact her and meet her. It’s my dear Reiki Master Cat Wheeler who had told me about Novi so I knew I would be in good hands as I trust Cat’s opinion.
And indeed, such good hands…
As you will be able to see in the below interview, Novi is straight to the point and such a beautiful, vivid, strong and warm personality.
As I met her in her cozy little practice, I loved her straight away and I knew I was in the right place. A feeling that was confirmed as I’m already crying my eyes out and laughing at the same time after listening to her for only 10 minutes and seeing how accurate she was…
Her intuition and unconditional love towards any being that knocks at her door are her weapon of choice to launch the healing process while the cards unveil.
I know it might be triggering to consider tarot reading as an energy healing method, but I experienced this guidance as a healing, definitely… And now consider tarot reading (with Novi at least) as an energy healing method.
Here are a few questions I asked Novi about her practice and energy healing. Don’t hesitate to contact her for a guidance if you come to Ubud or even from home, I recommend her warmly.
How did you discover energy healing for yourself?
I was born in a shaman family, I think it’s in the blood.
How did you start practicing tarot reading professionally?
I decided to resign from the corporate world and moved to Bali in 2007 to focus on my path in tarot.
For you, what is energy healing?
What is your professional practice?
The Javanese define life as “nothing more than a pause on the path to drink a cup of tea”. My approach to tarot is influenced by my Javanese background in Sumarah philosophy.
“We start from the idea of our humanity, from the acceptance that we will never be perfect and that we will always make mistakes”
According to my Javanese belief, since life is continuous movement and reality changes all the time, we have to learn to know and respect what is there for us and at the same time not to get too attached to it. My belief does not offer solutions, it does not promise salvation, neither does it guarantee success. My belief is mainly a way, an instrument of life, for life and in life, not an end in itself.
Just like the meditation it is a tool that helps us arrive somewhere, but once we arrive, we eventually have to let go of the tool. My cards will lead you to your path by learning, accepting karma and journey to inner self.
What is your practice for your own optimal well-being?
Praying and practice compassion.
A message, piece of advice about energy healing for the people who will read this blog?
“Novi’s readings are encouraging and uplifting and they embrace our flaws and teach us to accept that we will never be perfect and making mistakes in life is natural. We must learn to respect and enjoy life and everything it holds for us, without attachment.”
