About the Enrichment Project

Just hearing how another woman has used her creativity inspires me towards using what’s in my own toolbox.

Actually, readers don’t need to know anything about me. This will be more about the story of their lives. What inspiration they take, the practices they enhance.

If someone feels they’ve been stuck in a box, maybe they’ll read this and see it doesn’t need to be an either/or. Hopefully, someone struggling will find the courage to do something with her passion, to write her story and know it’s creative. To win that creativity, daily. Maybe some accountant, some spreadsheet-lover, will read this and see that she ‘is too’ creative.

Reading about how women survive and thrive is inspirational to me. These things are simply not taught or discussed enough, and there’s an overwhelming need to discuss them in all areas.

I feel like I got a sneak peek into everyone’s boxes of creativity, to see what colors and flavors they used. The crosspollination of the dissimilar. I got lessons in everything. We all did.

Everyone will find someone in this book who could be a mentor.

This isn’t about women winning the Nobel; it’s about women winning.

I’ve been so moved by the vulnerability in a sister I’d never met face-to-face before. The empowerment in the stories she told.

Power comes from awareness, and being aware makes something beautiful; this project has made me more aware.

About Radical Ritual Tarot

My experience of getting a Radical Ritual Reading from Christy was full of pleasant surprises. First pleasant surprise was how well the session went, considering that it was done remotely. I live literally on the other side of the world from her. Even with all the technological help for the real time video chat and all, I was unsure how the session would feel, or how satisfying her reading would come out to be.

Well, as soon as we got connected online, Christy put me at ease, with her radiant smile and her positive tone. We had not spoken for quite a while, yet we started chatting right away as if we’d never been away from each other.

Another pleasant surprise was Christy’s in-depth knowledge. She knew a lot of details about the Tarot card I selected, and applied her knowledge skillfully to interpret the meanings of the card as they pertains to my inquiry.

The same with her vision from her shamanic journey. She explained what she saw, what they symbolize, and how she interprets their meanings to my particular inquiry.

Perhaps the most interesting of the pleasant surprises is how I felt after the session. It was this very satisfying and cleansing feeling, as if I had shared with her all of my private thoughts and emotions. This was so surprising to me, because I never divulged much details surrounding my inquiry to her!

The video of our session is such a treasure for me now. I get to watch it and renew the senses and positive spirit of our session, which helps me with my own ritual that incorporates the Tarot card and the Touchstone she sent me. Thank you, Christy, for your service! I hope many others will benefit from it as I did.

I was fortunate to receive a reading from Christy Smith last summer and it was an experience that both awakened my spirit and refreshed my outlook on life. Christy put me at ease the entire time and afterwards I left with a new appreciation for aspects of life I had previously dismissed or buried. Months later I still find myself utilizing some of the things that we talked about and am appreciative that I decided to try something new.
