Tara Farkas is a mixed modality reader based in the Wilmington area who is most recognizable for her readings at Tidal Creek’s vending fairs. She has been reading clients professionally at private parties and conventions since the early 90’s, and more recently has been providing readings online via the Lightworkers Live Facebook group. She also lends her services at open healing circles around the Wilmington area for the purpose of energetically shifting emotional blockages trapped in the physical body, a modality known as “Pain Shifting”. In addition to this, Tara custom-crafts intention or meditation wands to support clients on their journey.
Utilizing gifts believed to have passed down from her grandmother, Tara began communicating with spirit at a young age. Throughout her life, she has developed a unique approach to reading that utilizes multiple modalities. In a typical reading, Tara will consult crystals in a way that is similar to rune casting, lending a specific divinatory meaning to each stone and its placement in the spread. She will then move on to cartomancy, allowing spirit to guide her as she pulls cards to relay important information and major themes pertinent to the client’s life. Channeling is also often a part of her sessions, although it isn’t guaranteed, as each session is unique. When messages are waiting to be channeled, Tara receives them directly from her guides in the form of images, symbols, smells, and sounds. She also often works with a client’s power and totem animals and the messages they bring.
Tara manages a Facebook page called Tara’s Cards, Crystals, and Fortunes where she is available for quick card pulls, spiritual advice, and custom wand orders.
Demetrice Irizarry is a local Usui and Crystal Reiki Master/Teacher who currently provides Energy Healing services here at Mystic Elements!
A frequent comment you’ll hear about Demetrice is that she is very easy to work with and will take her time to connect with you for a deeper, more individualized healing experience. With half a decade of experience under her belt, working on a personal level with others and subtle energy is simply second nature. Her sessions are also known to include elements of aromatherapy and crystal healing, depending on the goals of the client.
Demetrice has been a member of the Mystic community for the past couple of years, so you may have seen or met her before during one of our monthly Healing Circle events, or perhaps at one of the Wheel of the Year ceremonies.
