Madeline Thompson

Universal Law…what we focus on grows!

My name is Madeline aka Groweesha, a soul’s gardener. During my learning experiences I have earned a Masters in Counseling from Montclair State University, a LPC, LCADC, ACS, Hypnotist Certification, Complex Trauma Certification, Kundalini Yoga Teacher, and my unapologetic authentic expression.

I have lived as a Momma of 4 young men, a Wife, a Sister, a Granny of 2, and many more roles that served to cultivate the luxury of many deeply safe intimate relationships that have allowed me to see and accept others truth as I honor their process whole heartedly. To me, the relationships in my life have been the life school classrooms.

As a student, l have learned to listen and sort the experiences shared in an authentic transparent reflection while remaining neutral and curious. Together we are able to see clearly where the places of conflict root and are looking for attention to be integrated.

I have been working with families, couples and individuals for 25 + years. The majority of my work has included working with others as they meet ages and stages, primarily, for integration of patterns of thinking that determine the flow of the life force and grow feelings of stagnation and depletion.

Rashad Jones

I am a Cardology researcher, consultant, and life coach. By applying personality types based on birth dates to a standard deck of playing cards, Cardology provides an opportunity for self-reflection with the empowering metaphor of “playing your cards.” Each birthday has an identity and purpose. This tool serves a role similar to Astrology, Human Design, and Myers-Briggs Personality Tests. I am a student of this tool that is here to help guide people toward personal fulfillment and self-awareness. If you are interested, you can book a reading with me. You should include your birthday and location of birth in notes. The exact time is very helpful and will lead to better results. To learn more about my work with cardology visit my website or follow me on Instagram @rashadncards. Madeline studies Cardology with me, and invites her community to join our project analyzing each personality type in the “Call to the Cards” 2022-2023.
