About Betty

Betty 0541b 72dpi Web 1This is my personal blog and website. My goal is to create insightful and relevant content that you can relate to and use in your personal, artistic, and professional life. If you are struggling with life issues such as health setbacks, relationship concerns, career confusion, or how to express your creativity in a positive and productive way, then this blog and website are for you.

The focus of the material I cover is on "making intentional life choices." My mission is to help people understand how much support they can receive from their own internal archetypal energetic system and to be aware of the consequences of ignoring these archetypal energies when they show up in their lives. I use James Wanless and Ken Knutson's Voyager Tarot Deck for stunningly beautiful and profoundly expansive visual and spiritual support.

As a result, I write about personal development, intuition, creativity, and how to manage when your life feels as if it's falling apart. On occasion, I write about topics or tell stories that don't neatly fit into one of these categories. 

I post five days a week and you can sign up on my website for daily reminders. I'm available for personal consultations and I also offer workshops, programs, and books to support you in a variety of ways.
