My name is Shar Ruth and I’m a professional tarot reader, healer and spiritualist working in British and Caribbean traditions. I live in Amsterdam, the Netherlands and work in Dutch and English. I’m originally from the UK. My spiritual roots are in western-esoteric religions and spiritual systems, i.e. wicca and the hermetic kabbalah, as well as diverse healing methods, which I continue to practice today. See Healings and Cleansings under Services.
Tarot has always been a big part of my life. A few years ago I started public reading on a regular basis, as well as teaching. See Tarot under Services on this site for more info.
Around 12 years ago I was introduced to Afro-Caribbean religions. This completely changed my life and way of viewing the world and got me started on the spiritual journey I am on today. Five years ago I was fully initiated into Santeria in Cuba. As a priest I am committed to a lifetime of learning and practicing the religion, and passing it on to others. See More. Alongside Santeria I host different events, including spiritual ceremonies (see Misa Espiritual under Espiritismo, under Services), as well as workshops on the Orishas. See Santeria under Services.
Healing and spiritual baths for cleansing and protection
Besides tarot readings I also give workshops in different areas, hands-on healing (reiki, quantum touch, spiritualist healing), guidance around ancestor work and cleansings and purification by a range of methods including herbal and flower-based spiritual baths, and orisha-based cleansings. See Healings and Cleansings under Services on this site.
Spiritual practice in the traditions I follow starts with building a good relationship with our ancestors. Learning to communicate and keep up a good relationship with my ancestors has been life-changing for me and is at the basis for everything I do. I am grateful for everything I have learned and enjoy passing it on to others. See Ancestor Work under Services on this site for more information.
