Ylva Faith Trollstierna

I´m Ylva, I´m called the Swedish Tarot Queen.
I hope that you will like what you read (even if it's not correctly grammar) hopefully you will find inspiration from my text, and courses.

I have written 26 books, 16 of them are about Tarot, and other titles are about runes, crystals, aura, colors, astrology, and healing. Some of them are translated into English (you can find them on Amazon).

I work full-time writing and creating in these subjects. I have also created some decks. My Prisma Tarot has the theme of colors, totems, astrology, and runes. I have also created a deck - Yiang - Of colors with words.

In your meeting with me, I wish to inspire you, find your potential, and keep you on the right track, your path. I wish you safety and harmony in your life, live in love, and be healthy and happy. And that you, in all your challenges, look for the funny part, the learning (and growing). You can challenge yourself to create more and better conditions, and there is where I would like to be a creative life to inspire you in your life.
 If you want to get in touch with me, write me a letter at ylvatrollstierna@gmail.com

Who am I?

I, Ylva, was born in the sign of Sagittarius in 1959.
Working title: Creative life coach

I was born and brought up in a small town in the North of Sweden. I grew up in a family that included my mother, aunt, and grandparents.

New age/supernatural was a part of our daily life in my childhood, even if it weren't something people would notice in a first meeting. My mother saw little people (trolls) and was open to energies. My aunt did readings in ordinary playing cards (but not as a professional), and she also had an interest in dreams and crystals. At nine o 'clock in the morning, my aunt toked her first cup of coffee and laid down the playing cards on the table for the spread for the day. I sat beside her, asking - What does that card mean? And why is it lying there? And what should happen if it is in another place? My grandmother arranged for séances mostly every Sunday, and it was almost every time a French monk appeared clearest. In my first years, the family had a hotel where I grew up.
From an early age, as early as I can remember, everything with spiritual meaning has meant a lot to me and been a part of my daily life.

In 1974, I went to Nottingham, England, to go to school, and at that time, I had a high grade in the English language. My friends read Tarot cards and had mystical meetings out on the fields in the evenings. That's how I came in contact with Tarot cards; my first deck was a Rider-Waite.

I studied astrology from 10 years of age, gazing into a crystal ball and drum traveling in my closet! I looked for UFOs and laid the playing cards in the typical Sibylla star. Every morning I looked in the book for dream interpretations in our kiosk (a part of our house) to find the meaning of the dream I had the night before.

I always had a significant interest in reading, maybe because I got all the opportunities with magazines and books in our kiosk. It has given me a standard education and interest in almost everything in life, and I wouldn't miss something out.
Energies have always been a significant interest in mind, philosophical thoughts about life, why we think and act the way we do, and how patterns become such a big part of our lives. Magic and rituals were an interest when I was a teenager. Today I believe that the mind's power is the most potent energy ever.

I had the opportunity to be a housewife when my kids were young and sold Tupperware in the evenings (and even today, I got too many plastic things all over the place). I worked night at a hotel and loved it since I'm a night person. I also had a kiosk myself for many years. I'm educated as a nail sculptor. I worked in an older people's homes and stores, and I've also got an education to be a cashier in Superstores; I have also trained as an office writer.

At the end of the '80s, I came in contact with Reiki and became an Independent Reiki Master and Karuna Master, first in Sweden, and then I went to India in the year 2000 and toked all the classes again for William Lee Rand (www.reiki.org).

In 1990 I had good luck meeting Vanja, a colorfulness woman educated in almost any therapeutic method you can dream about. She is the one that turned my life upside down in a positive way. She introduced me to a shaman from New Zeeland, Shiven. He is the one that taught me about totems (power animals). Vanja also introduced me to another shaman, Oscar, from Chile; my interest in shamanism and regression grew in contact with these men.

Vanja taught me about body language, that the mind and body are always connected, and that I could do so much more than I believed I could. After some years, she introduced me to another man, an American, Roger LaChance (Unicorn method), and it was him that got me to stand up for whom I am and say – Yes, I'm physic. Vanja was also the first to take me back to a previous life and teach me a technique to see and understand others' past lives.
Vanja is the one that taught me the basics and all that is worth knowing in almost any area of the new age. She was a living spiritual guide; unfortunately, she died in January 1995, which is one of my most enormous sorrows in this life.

At the beginning of the '90s, I started to read Martinus Cosmology and had the opportunity of having a very competent teacher. Martinus Cosmology became the answer to many of my essential and challenging questions about life, and it gave me a lot of alternatives to get the solutions. Even if I don't buy that entire teaching full out.

I'm logical and analytic (too much). I'm a critical person who asks why and what will happen if one does the other way around.

In 1993 I opened a little store called "Crystal Wolf" (my name Ylva means wolfness in Latin). I sold Tarot, Crystals, herbs, books, etc. My interest in Tarot became bigger with my customers, and I asked to have my first workshop on the Tarot. That lead me to write my first book, "Tarot, step by step."

During these years, I started a society, the "Swedish Tarot association," with another Swedish writer in Tarot. We had a vision, too authorized Tarot readers, and helped people to decide who was severe and not. But like most societies, it had many different personal wills, and I decided to leave. Now it's continuing in my Tarot Academy, where Tarot readers can get themselves certified.

I usually describe myself as a person as a too cheerful, frantic optimist that believes that everything, even the bad, has something good in the end. I'm a creative person, intense, charming and impossible, wild and crazy, beautiful, plump, and with many stars in my eyes.

 My creative working energy in my days (which starts at 7 am and stops at 2 am) is used by me to write, give guidance over Zoom and do distance reading in Tarot. The time that is left is for family and friends. I watch movies (daily), play poker, take a walk in the forest and do much other fun stuff that happens in my life. I tend to say yes to all that looks like an adventure.

The parts of my life that had me develop more of myself are studying ACIM (A Course In Miracles) and NLP (Nero Linguistic Program) and life. I love rational thinking in 2006 and 2020-2021 Anthony Robbin's workshops. And on top of that, I like the reflection of Neale Donald Walsch (Conversations with God), I have done two distance workshops with him, and two live in Oregon, USA. Since the beginning of 2022 I have been studying Infinite Possibilities for Mike Dooley (tut.com), and I am a certified Infinite Possibilities (Matrix) trainer,

I have also been the Swedish contact person for a fantastic aura program, Aurastar 2000. That's the program I recommend for you if you like to see your aura and the wholeness of your chakras and the physical body. The aura and the soul are the same energy, and colors are energies that we can use to create more of our potential. From that knowledge I have created the Yiang symbol deck and text.

The Tarot cards are a fantastic tool, archetypical pictures showing the energy we are and what we create.

And in everything I do, I always fall back on the belief that we all create our own life; no one else has the responsibility, and Faith is what we make of it. Karma creates and recreates in every move.

It happens a lot in my life, perhaps cause I'm the curious type, and sometimes I have a lot to tell. If you're interested, you can read more on my blog, all my thoughts on my daily rollercoaster journey through life.

I'm a better writer than a reader unless we speak about Tarot cards, for there, I believe that no one in the world can talk more about the cards than me. I have written 16 books on the subject, about 6000 A4 of pages, and one of the most prominent Swedish newspapers gave me the title "The Swedish Tarot Queen."
