Voyager “Time Space Therapy”

FUTURE PULL COUNSELING – Voyager “Time Space Therapy”

Now, “seeing with new eyes,” I’ve focused on Voyager Counseling, rather than old traditional “reader” appellation.  Every time I tried on and saw, “Voyager Counselor,” I had a funny, familiar feeling. Then, aha! My intuition told me to google StarTrek and there it was, Deanna Troi, the first star fleet “Counselor.” Though not a “Voyager” ship counselor, which later came to be, Troi on the “Enterprise” came to the call of realizing that extended space travel resulted in psychological problems. She specialized in empathy and telepathy, both qualities of a Voyager Tarot counselor and seer, and so necessary on our own ship called Earth spinning through time and space.



This all got me to thinking about the true Troi-like “high” priestess in the Voyager Deck – “XX Time-Space.” This quality within us all is the ability to foresee through time and space. But we do not use this gift nearly enough to forecast our own healthy future.11263942_854620427953960_335530823377190490_n-1Like the Time-Space card suggests, fly ahead of your life and look to your future ten years from now. Studies have shown that people can easily recall their past ten years but have great difficulty seeing ahead, which tells me that unless you can imagine your future, you are somehow in denial and blocking yourself, your growth, your potentiation, your destined apotheosis – thus you are not optimally healthy, alive and consciousness on any level of being.

“What you see, you will be” is a law of magic. Once you as the Priestess foresee, you turn into the “Magician” with the power to create the future and make fortunes by feeling, believing and doing it. Envision your optimum future in gold light. By maintaining this focus, you experience “future pull,” which is akin to a Redwood instinctively knowing/“seeing” its future as a grand tree. The life force naturally pulls the Redwood toward its appointed destiny. Allow yourself to be helped by the greatest power of all, the life force, that will surely pull you to realize the highest vision in your mind’s eye.

This is therapy, for as the Bible says, yes the Bible, “without vision, the people shall perish.” Voyager Counseling is “fortune creation.” Make it so.

Visit Phoenix Friends of Carl Jung to learn more and to register.

James Wanless, PhD, has been a student and a teacher of the Tarot for over 30 years. Even though the ancient Tarot cards he used in his readings were successful in helping people understand their past, present, and future, in the early 1980s Dr. Wanless realized that the symbolism was outdated and the process of Tarot reading was antiquated.

His vision of Tarot was to embrace many cultures, discard old stereotypes, and create a proactive tool that would transform fortune telling into fortune creation.

Four years in the making, the revolutionary and contemporary Voyager Tarot deck that Dr. Wanless created has drawn thousands of people from all over the world, helping them to understand their own psyches, and to become active leaders of their own lives. Known as Mr. Tarot, James is a master teacher. His teaching of the Tarot empowers a student to “Be Your Own Oracle.”
In his Saturday morning introductory talk on January 17th, Dr. Wanless will demonstrate the Voyager Tarot deck, then conduct a group reading that will inspire you and bring personal insight. You will understand the Tarot as a holistic map of life that he calls the GPS of the soul. Each attendee will leave with a Tarot card, with which they can identify the significance in their own lives—especially meaningful for 2015, the Year of Balance.

Three in One Tarot

Excellent training and its fun! I call it “edutainment.”

This is one of my favorite exercises in the Advanced Training for students seeking Voyager Reader’s Certification. It’s innovative, intuitive, interactive, insightful!

This is a great process to see how others see you and how you see yourself.

Gather a small group (around 4-6). Place one Deck in the middle. Everyone in the group picks as many cards as there are in the group (eg. four people in a group, so everyone picks four cards); If you pick a negative card, you can put it back in the pile and pick another. Determine intuitively which card in your hand is you, and then figure out a card for each person in the group. Go around the group and gift each other the card you have chosen for them and explain why.

Tell Your Story

With the cards you now have in your hand (your own card and the cards given to you), form these cards into some kind of symbolic alignment that tells your story. Once everyone has determined that, go around the circle and present your story, card by card. Give your story a memorable title!

Group Consciousness

This process is called the “Whole Group Profile.” Compose a human body of all the cards the group has used. Place all Wands cards at top for crown chakra. Place all Crystals under in the head/mental position. Under the head in the chest and heart, place all the Cups cards. Make some legs for this body with all the Worlds Cards. Then place the female Major Archetype cards for the left arm and the masculine Majors for the right arm. For those neutral Majors, place them wherever on the body or above or below it.

Analyze the collective consciousness of the group by looking at the balance or imbalance of the “whole self” by the Suits and Majors. Notice what other patterns may be revealed.

This is particularly fun when there are several groups involved with a little competition between the groups by comparing the wholeness and uniqueness of each group’s body.

The Baby Voyager is great for building your body!



One of the most fulfilling things I do in Asia is give a person a western name! Names mean so much. They are our face, our logo, our identity, and most importantly, indicate our sense of self. I love my name the most because I was named after my grandfather (William James Wanless) who was Knighted by the King of England for his medical missionary work in India.

On this last trip, I was asked by a young Japanese woman to help her with her new name. How do I come up the name? I ask the cards! Remember, I am, aka. “Captain Pick A Card.” The Voyager Card she selected was “INTEGRITY.” Integrica as a name for her? An exotic name, but not really! So, if the word-title on the Card does not work, I look at the picture-symbols. I hummmm, like the intuitive sounding-out of the Priestess, and move my finger around the Card until something strikes me. In the Integrity Card it was the picture of St. Patrick’s Church in New York City. Patrick, Patrick, I repeat, knowing it’s a male name, and then aha!… PATRICIA. The name feels good for me and I ask the young woman and she loves it! ( I explained that “Patricia” is derived from the Latin word, patrician, which means “noble.”) She likes that name even more, now. But what about a last name for her. Hmmmm… As I’m looking at her, she seems to have a rounded, moonish-like face. How about “Moon?” She swoons, of course, being a moon-lover that she is. I just got an email from her today with her new western email address that is Patricia Moon.

Check out the new Patricia Moon as she peers over pizza and tarot after the “sacred naming ritual” (“When the Moon hits your eye like a big Pizza Pie, that’s Amore,” so sang crooner, Dean Martin, a long time ago). Now, that’s a sign for her name being correct!

Anyone need a new name!?
