“I would definitely recommend the experience [Kurt doing Angel reading cards]  to anyone. I found the reading very insightful and positive. The information was very on point with what was happening in my life and I walked away feeling rejuvenated and focused as well as optimistic. It gave me guidance and confirmation. Kurt is very intuitive and a calming energy. Highly recommend!” Joey B., Dallas TX

“The angel card readings by Kurt Fondriest are not only insightful, but also very intuitive as to what is going on in  the present, past and the future. I have experienced angel card readings with Kurt many times. I have always found them to be very enlightening and informative. I am always surprised at how much information Kurt comes up with regarding a question or concern: he’s able to mention information that I have not told him before. He is totally in the moment when he is doing an angel card reading and many times he has told me he doesn’t remember much about them after the fact; he is totally consumed during the time of the reading with the angels and reading the cards and addressing the concerns that are the reason for the reading. I highly recommend Kurt if you are wanting answers to questions such as wondering about whether you’re making the right decision, whether you should go on a specific trip, or work out a certain problem that you’re dealing with. Kurt’s Angel Card readings are a perfect way to investigate and clarify your questions.” Liz King, Fort Worth TX

Kurt Fondriest worked as an expressive arts therapist at Misericordia home in Chicago for over 32 years. He is an ordained nondenominational minister, Certified Angel Guide and certified pastoral counselor, holding a PhD in Holistic Ministries. His work is based on his life with a chronic pain condition called fibromyalgia. Dr. Kurt sees life as a ministry, a way of expressing one’s spiritual connection to others. One of the greatest gifts our creator gives us is the power to love unconditionally; it is through this gift we find ourselves and our work. Let us always remember to not keep the gift of unconditional love but to share this divine blessing with all.

Crystal Card Readings with Recci Middleton
I’m Recci Middleton, the creator of House of 7 Goddesses! I took my love for crystals to the next level when I began wrapping them into one of a kind pendants for myself and others who wanted to enjoy their energy and beauty on the go. What started out as a therapeutic hobby transformed into a healing practice when I began to incorporate all that I’d learned in the Psychic Development, Shamanism, Crystal Healing, and Card Reading classes I’d taken throughout the years of my own spiritual and healing journey.
As a result, House of 7 Goddesses ( provides custom wire-wrapped pendants and intuitive card readings designed to ignite the pathway of your journey. Connecting with the right crystal’s energy at the right time in your life can be a powerful experience that creates alignment and empowerment to propel you in the right direction. My Crystal Card readings allow me to be a part of the equation because I let you know which crystal will benefit you most at this time and why. You can utilize this information the next time you visit a crystal store or request a custom pendant from ho7g. 15 minute reading for $20
