🏰 {BOOK TRAILER} FLOATING UNDERWATER BY TRACY SHAWN #booktrailer #puyb @tracyshawn



Author: Tracy Shawn
Publisher: Turbulent Muse Publishing
Genre: Women’s Fiction / Magical Realism / Psychological Fiction


Part psychological fiction and part mystical fiction with a dash of magical realism, Floating Underwater follows a woman’s astonishing journey through the extraordinary and, ultimately, to her self-actualization and power.

Fearful that her lifelong premonitions not only predict the future but can also change its very course, Paloma Leary is devastated when her latest vision foretelling a third miscarriage comes true.

Falling into a mystifying world of increasingly bizarre phenomena, including a psychic connection with her mysterious neighbor, out-of-body experiences, and visits from her long-dead mother, Paloma grows desperate for answers. She is also desperate to start a family. But when a life-changing vision reveals a tragic secret from the past, Paloma learns to accept her gifts and embraces a far different future than she ever could have imagined.

“One woman’s mystical journey to move forward while confronting a troubled, mysterious past. Beautifully written; an ethereal, eloquent pleasure.” ~~Marlene Adelstein, author of USA Today bestseller Sophie Last Seen

“Mystical and magical realism permeates this women’s novel, and Amy Harmon fans would embrace Shawn’s adept storytelling. The author delivers spot-on dialogue, believable and enchanting characters, and surprising twists. It’s easy to imagine the novel as a talked-about book club selection (in fact, there’s a list of questions at the book’s conclusion). Poignant and beautiful, Floating Underwater leaves readers yearning for a sequel and another look at these captivating characters.” ~~Starred Review by Patricia Moosbrugger for BlueInk Review

“The writing is stunning…Paloma’s journey toward friendship, love in her marriage, and the realization that her fears have kept her eyes closed to everything happening around her is a journey worth following. This book will remind you to listen to the wind when it speaks and to look for what’s floating beneath the surface of the water.”~~Reviewed by Jenna Swartz for San Francisco Book Review

“A mystical journey that will take its readers on a whirlwind tour of beautiful imagery and meaningful life adventures, Floating Underwater is the story about a woman named Paloma Leary who learns that she has some very special gifts to share with the world…This book is wonderfully written in a lovely beach setting…Floating Underwater is the perfect book for someone looking for a bit of fantasy thrown into a realistic setting with realistic characters. Written with special attention to little details, this book is relatable, yet very special and is a one-of-a-kind read.” ~~Reviewed by Kristi Elizabeth for Manhattan Book Review

The Supernatural Powers of the Tarot by Karen La Puma

The Supernatural Powers of the Tarot
by Karen La Puma

The magic and power of the Tarot is a tuning fork into cosmic wisdom, where you can hear the ancient wise voices and the Calls of the Gods. This cross-cultural visual system will lead you on the spiritual journey. It is a map that reveals the evolutionary process and the cosmic curriculum.  

Joseph Campbell researched world mythologies and gave us the one

great myth, the Hero’s Journey. From it we are told that “Supernatural Aids”will come to help us, once we embark on the Spiritual Adventure and ask for more purpose and meaning.  

Tarot is a “Supernatural Aid.” It has been my faithful guide and spiritual companion. These synchronistic revelations are Magical Talismans and Mystical Helpers. It is like having your own personal psychic on hand. 

The Tarot is a great wisdom system of spiritual ascension that connects us to all of life. It is often called an unbound book that is made up of 78 cards. There are 22 Major Arcana or universal principles that perfectly fit with Astrology. Traditionally there are 10 planets (including the luminaries) and 12 Zodiac signs.  

The remaining 56 Minor Arcana cards are made up of the four elements fire, earth, air and water. In each suit there are ten cards that correlate with our life lessons and opportunities and four Royalty cards as our teachers.  

Archetypes are living and breathing energies and express a range of experience. They are life’s patterns or rhythms and cosmic flow. Their symbols have many layers. The cards at times are like nouns, or personifications and meetings with Inner allies. They can be verbs that give a directive to take some actions or reveal the initiations. These archetypes can be adjectives that give a descriptive path or divination.  

There are major evolutionary themes in the Major Arcana cards. The first is learning to balance and harmonize love and will. The second category is setting things into motion, initiating new creativity, causing and affecting. The third topics are healing and transforming. Finally the process is attaining self-actualization or becoming whole and unified.   

Here are some of the most well-known power players: 

1.    The Fool card is the awakener or Uranus and helps you overcome fear. He allows you to hear the “Call to Adventure,” and embark on the spiritual path.  

2.    The Magician is designated to Mercury and teaches the magical power of the mind to manifest consciously. Our mental initiation is to be proactive and focus on what you want. 

3.    The High Priestess, the Moon Goddess, has the powers of inner nurturing and knowing. She tells you to tune in and listen to your intuition and your independent self.  

4.    The Empress, is Venus, is the Love Goddess, and embodies two initiations. The first is love, allow and accept what Is. The second is to move beyond struggle, control and drama.  

5.    The Emperor is Aries, the Warrior, and his initiation is to be accountable for your time, attention and intention. 

6.    The Hierophant is assigned to Taurus, and is the Inner Teacher, whose directive is to make your practical life sacred.  

7.    The Lovers card is designated to Gemini and presents the Duality principle. It shows how your relationships are your inner mirrors and greatest teachers, as they reflect what you feel about and you do to yourself.  

We all have our own special teachers that are denoted through our birthday. You can discover your own personal life-long teachers as well as your zodiac correspondence and each year you have a prominent growth indicator. 

My journey with these magical powers started when I studied with a beloved teacher, Angles Arrian in the 1970s. I practiced with the Tarot cards for five years, and then started to write a tarot book. I researched and recorded how the cards connected with Astrology, Hebrew Alphabet, Tree of Life, I Ching, and Numerology for six months. I had to put away my compilations, as I felt the subject was too esoteric and beyond my knowledge. After several decades of reading the cards, I was inspired to finish writing my book on the Tarot and create my own Tarot deck through digital collage. Awaken to Tarot and Awaken Tarot Cards are the result.  

To use the Tarot cards, first ask your questions, which is often, “What do I need to hear now?” Secondly, shuffle them in a quiet meditative space. The next step would be to go to the interruption in the book and read the commentary of the symbols. You can use the cards as a therapeutic tool by answering the reflective questions at the end of each chapter. There are many sample readings. 

Awaken Tarot Cards and the book, Awaken to Tarot, are part of a series, which is called, A Toolkit for Awakening. The series is based on the Goddess Warrior on the Hero’s Journey. The model is a combination of the symbolism of these three archetypes and gives us step-by-step process to a greater life of the soul.  

You may not identify with this model, but if you believe the Divine Light shines within you, you are a Goddess. If you want to evolve into a better human being, you are a Warrior. If you separate from the past, follow six initiations, and give back to the world, you are a Hero.   

I invite you to embark on this journey or recommit to it, and to use the Awaken to Tarot to be your own guide. All you need are this book and Awaken Tarot Cards for your guidance system. When you use the Tarot as an intuitive map, you can actively communicate with the magical inner teacher and make wiser, more in-tuned decisions. You have a light to shine on your spiritual path.
