A light opened in Tanya Lester’s third eye when a friend talked about searching for a tea leaf reader to entertain her guests at a tea party. “You know, I think this is the time for me to learn how to tea leaf read,” Tanya said. She picked up an old book on tea leaf reading that she had bought years earlier in another Canadian city. Over the years, she had thought often about discarding it at one of her yard sales. It refused to leave her. Automatically, her arm always placed it back on her bookshelf.
Opening that book changed forever the direction in which her life was going. This book is the story of how a form of energy healing called Reiki and Tanya’s ancestral spirits—one of whom lived in the middle east during the twelfth century—helped her find her passion and bliss. It describes how she uses her intuition to interpret the pictures in the loose tea leaves of her clients’ cups to guide them into their futures. Stories of love, death, murder, violence, family, financial success and failure, sickness and health, travel, relationships, work, poverty and wealth, the famous and infamous, and pleasure and excruciating pain are told as Tanya remembers some of the numerous readings that she has given to people from all walks of life. It is a spirited book from a woman filled with spiritual guidance and blessed as a channel for Higher Power. She has written it as if engaged in conversation with you, the reader. This book is a rare inside look into the life of a tea leaf reader, including information on how to do tea leaf readings. You will not want to put it down.
