My name is Amanda Mae, and I am a card reader. I have been reading cards since I was 12 or 14 years old, that is about 20 years now.
My mother, who also reads cards, wanted to teach me. We learned one thing very quickly. Tarot does not like me. I have never been able to get a tarot deck to like me. I have always been drawn to all things Egyptian. So when I saw the Egyptian Book of the Doors deck, I begged her to get it for me. She did, and although she could not make heads or tails of it, I quickly found a talent for this deck.
Now that my son is 13, my mom has given him a tarot deck, and I have given him a Book of Doors. He seems to get along well with both!
About now I guess you are asking yourself, “What is the Book of Doors?”
It is an Oracle. An Oracle is a message from the Divine that is channeled. Most of the time it is channeled by a person called an Oracle, but in this case it is the cards. I myself am not an Oracle, I only interrupt the message. I am not saying I have no sigh, because I do, I just take no credit for what the cards say.
How is this different than Tarot?
This question is a little harder to answer. Tarot reads energy. This energy can come from all kinds of places, the person reading the cards normally has some control over what energy is being “tapped.” It could be from them, you, or some spirit. Most card readers are more than happy to explain that to you. Since this is an Oracle it does not read energy. This is why you do not have to touch my cards (but I do not mind if you want to), and they never need a spiritual cleaning or charging. They are a direct line to Those Above.
Since we are human, and our minds can not fully understand the full force of a divine being, it communicates through symbols, patterns, and omens. The symbols on this deck are deeply rooted in Alchemy, and my deck is dedicated to the Egyptian Goddess Nit.
And Something More…
Anyone who becomes good at something finds their own way to do it. These cards come with a book, and a layout, and even an 8 sided die. There are nifty charts, and some very good information in this book. Through study of Alchemy, Kemet (Ancient Egypt), meditation, and my own experiences I have adapted and come up with my own style.
How do you get a reading?
Well if you live in Denton, Texas it is real easy to set up a live appointment. I can even read for groups, and parties!
I do not like charging by the minute. This makes you hurry through the reading, as you fear I am trying to drag it out. The truth of the matter is, if you are seeking guidance there may already be problems in your life. Rather than pointing out what you already may know, I would rather get to the root of your problems and help you find a way to solve it. Most of my readings are about a half an hour, sometimes longer, sometimes less. It really depends on what you need and what is going on in your life.
