Helping you find your path, card by card, step by step

“Life is but a stop along the path to drink a glass of tea”

When you stop by along your path for a tarot reading with Novi, expect to be surprised by her accuracy. You pick the cards, but her interpretation is spot on and emotionally accurate. She is a natural healer and has a gift for communicating issues from deep inside your unconscious mind to you very simply, just as they are revealed to her in the cards. It’s great fun, even if you don’t have any problems or concerns. Novi is dedicated to using the tarot to help people find their way through life. If you do have questions, you will leave with clarity, and a sense of relief.

The Javanese define life as “nothing more than a pause on the path to drink a cup of tea”. Novi’s approach to tarrot is influenced by her Javanese background in Sumarah philosophy. “We start from the idea of our humanity, from the acceptance that we will never be perfect and that we will always make mistakes,” she says. This is what gives Novi’s readings such an encouraging and uplifiting character.

According to her Javanese belief, since life is continuous movement and reality changes all the time, we have to learn to know and respect what is there for us and at the same time not to get too attached to it. Her belief does not offer solutions, it does not promise salvation, neither does it guarantee success. Her belief  is mainly a way, an instrument of life, for life and in life, not an end in itself. Just like the meditation it is a tool that helps us arrive somewhere, but once we arrive, we eventually have to let go of the tool.

“That’s the way I read Tarot” says Novi.

You can bring a list of questions you want answered, and Novi will keep going until there are no cards left in the pack. ( written by Jen Richardson, PR Consultant, Ubud)

Noviana is one of the most amazing women I’ve ever met.  In the magical atmosphere of Ubud, Bali, she will tell you the truth about your life, fears and concerns. If you are ready to listen, of course. I was surprised, happy and I still can hear her words after two months. Because of her, I’ve started to dance, to have more confidence in myself and to understand that nothing is random in this world.

I found Novi on the website Balispirit.com and she is the first tarot card reader I ever went to. In the last years I went to many mediums, astrologers, other card readers, oracles, even the palmleaf libraries in India and Bali etc. and so I wanted to find out, what the mystical tarot cards are willing to tell me.
When I saw Novi for the first time, I was surprised to see all the prayer flags and the thangkas (buddhist rolled paintings) in her little reading room and I suddenly felt at home because I am seeing frequently all those buddhist monasteries in the Himalayan region.
As soon as Novi started with her reading I noticed that she doesn’t even need the tarot cards for the reading as she is clearly connected to a higher source. Her energy lifted me up and made me feel like a child again, that wants to play in life. Her messages were clear, detailed and exact. She used simple stories to underline the messages and they make me laugh all over, because I saw myself in every of these situations. I left the first reading and felt like I have met an angel.
The time after this reading was very hard for myself, as I really was stuck in life. So I read all the messages from Novi again and realised, that everything, even the most tiny information, was accurate and helped me through this difficult time.
So I decided to visit her for a second time and see whats have been changed. And I was surprised one more time. It was like coming home again and I was truly welcomed by her. She predicted me wonderful things as a result of my inner work and the hard studies I had done.
Novi is not just a tarot card reader, she is a authentic and detailled medium, who uses her clear channel and her love to help others searching for their path. The meaning behind her wise words are the words from a higher source. After all my experiences all over Europe and a lot in India, she is the best I ever consulted.
Thanks dear Novi for your love, compassion and warmth you gave me. I always have a smile in my face when I think about you. You made me feel very special!!!

My Tarot Card Reading in Ubud, Bali
by Paula McInerney

www.contentedtraveller.com

I had not seen Eat. Pray. Love. when I had this interesting experience, though I did know the basic premise of the story. It was when we decided to stay at Murni’s, an institution in Ubud, that I was asked whether I wanted a number of things; one of these being a tarot card reading. I guess with all of the hype of the book and the movie and the fact that many people in Ubud seem to be into this spiritual stuff, so tarot cards are trendy.
I had to think about it because I have never actually done anything like this before. I agreed because I thought it would make a good story, to be honest, and also because the lady is a published author, and that is always interesting. Her name is Noviana Kusumawardhani, Tarot Reader, Ubud, Bali.
I was a little nervous about such an experience but being a born skeptic thought that I might just be able to have some fun and meet an interesting lady. I bought Gordon with me to sit quietly and take a picture or 2 with Novi’s permission. I have no secrets from him. He had decided not to have a tarot card reading.
She asked me my full name and then thought about it. She then asked me my date of birth. She then appeared to go into a trance and I was freaked. Then she said she would shuffle the cards, and then I would shuffle them and give them back to her, which I did. Remember I would not know what one tarot card looked like from another anyhow…and besides, I had heard enough. She then spread them over the table and asked me to select 10.
She then turned 3 over to start with …and then it started. She had me nailed totally. She knew me so well, and it would have been impossible for her to know the things that she did. She then started turning the rest of the cards over, and her knowledge of me was unbelievable. She asked if I had any questions, but I didn’t know of any to ask. I think I was in a state of shock. She had come so highly recommended and I can see why.

Gordon was also in a state of shock having nearly nodded his head off the whole way through, agreeing with her. He then had his tarot cards read by Novi, and again pinpoint accuracy right down to a specific event at a specific time in his life. OMG.

So what was the analysis of me? I am not telling all – but, in a nutshell, I am a very hard worker, (control freak) with the kindest heart ever. Works for me.
Thanks to FlipKey by tripadvisor for sponsoring us at Murni’s, otherwise we would not have had this confronting experience – and I am saying that in a good way.

I saw Novi in March of this year, and was overwhelmed by her accuracy and insight. She has an extraordinary gift, as well as tremendous compassion, and I felt quite bonded to her in a very extraordinary way – and yet we had only just met. She has changed my life in so many ways, that she has left an indelible mark in my heart, and I hope to always have her in my life. I have found an extraordinary peacefulness and “coming to terms” after my time with her. She will be a blessing in your life.

Novi is extraordinarily talented at drawing aside the veil, and offering an accurate peek into the future–– always with a dose of kindness and humor.  I loved my readings with her.  I had two successive readings, separated by a month, and each brought a degree of timely revelation.   I left on such a high, and have since listened to the recordings she made––and marveled at how “on” she is   She is exceedingly good at this, and her talent is all the more impressive when you realize that she is also humble about her gifts.  I recommend her wholeheartedly.   Do not equivocate.  Do not deliberate.  Book a reading with this remarkable woman.

Like many others Ubud has been my paradise of choice . On each trip i have dipped my toes and sometimes taken a plunge through its thin veil .This spiritually charged island of wonders attracts both seekers and teachers and it is a subtle art to manifest the right person who will help you along your way of being your true self . There is a large menu out there and one wants to manifest authentic handlers of magic . I refer to people i meet who’s insights and teachings resonate at a deep level ( THE REAL DEAL ) and Noveiana is just that .I walked down a beautiful path towards her home that day ,Her walls are made of books and a little wooden piano caught my eye as i walk in .I sat in her reading room full of colors and fascinating objects and i immediately new this will be real.The energy in the room assured me of that .Everything she told me i knew on some level but didn’t at the same time , Lets call it a sense familiarity and words that instantly resonated , It was exhilarating .It is being face to face with the possibility of a human who has tapped into the source that gets me .She will make you laugh , And sometimes answer your questions before you ask .It will be light and true . You will smile a lot .The real deal is out there , You just have to look not hard but with your heart .

Love

Novi,
I want to thank you again for yesterday’s reading (4pm). You must have heard it hundreds of time but it was amazing, you delivering the messages without needing to know and wasting time with the “story”,  for me alone to fit in the different fields of my life. It even echoed numerology reading I had in the path but with different words or brought clarity to my astrological chart and for example, this strange envelop  formed by the aspects, with the tip pointing at Venus in The 12th house. But maybe above all, it is the strong feeling of you being in your path, with your whole being resonating it with ease that amazes and inspires me.
Beautiful day to you Novi

Gw selalu percaya Semests selalu menghadirkan guardian angel di setiap chapter kehidupan manusia termasuk gw . Mereka akan hadir pada waktu yang  tepat. Gw bertemu  bude Novi tahun 2009 , saat  mengalami titik terendah dalam hidup .
Awal pertemuan bude novi tidak membuka kartu  tarot demikian juga dalam  pertemuan2 selanjutnya. Selama bertemu bude gw yang lebih banyak cerita, curhat dan sharing.
Baru 1.5 tahun yg lalu bude novi buka kartu tarot untuk gw dan kartu terakhir yg gw lampirkan itu adalah turning point gw. ” kamu anak Semesta Sulung, tidak ada yg perlu dikhawatirkan di hidup ini, jalanin saja purpose of lifemu, Semesta akan take care kamu” demikian kata bude novi. Semenjak itu perspektif gw memandang hidup dan menjalani hidup berubah banget. Sekarang gw menjadi pribadi yg lebih rileks,lebih care kepada diri sendiri, lebih surrender , gak ngoyo tanpa melupakan kerja keras tentunya.
Gw suka, cocok dan nyaman dengan cara Bude Novi baca kartu tarot. Menurut gw bude adalah salah satu tarot reader terbaik saat ini. Matur suwon bude sudah menjadi pembawa pesan Semesta lewat kartu tarot.

” Noviana read for me two times. Each time it has been full of insights, it brought me clarity and signs for the doubts I had. I left her with faith and light peaceful sensation that everything will fall into place.
She helped me to liberate myself from things from my past that was heavy and sad.
Her messages has been a guidance to make a choice that is changing my life right now: by bringing me back to listen my inner playful child and use my fire.
I love her way to deliver the messages, with humor, storyteelings and lots of care. Meeting her was evident she knew who i was, read my soul, present and past lives… Her readings go beyond a simple tarot…
Infinite gratitude and Love

I have been recommended by both local and expat friends of mine to visit Novi for a consultation since 2014.
———————–
I was not in a good place before I met Novi on the fateful day 24th April 2015 and now I am working on redirecting my path towards success and dream of my life.
Originally, I was hoping just to get some guidance about my business.
However, I end up with more info than I was asking for, Novi has analyse my past, my current and what is to become of my future.
The reading for past & current was exactly what has happened in my life.
I didn’t volunteer any info about my life to many and for sure, Novi do not gained any life info prior to my visit until the session begin.
The whole experience just open up my deepest emotion level, with Novi’s guidance from the session, I have managed to face my fear and works on them.
To obtain what I am craving for, I must let go of what has been stopping me to achieve my goals.
I am looking forward to end result, after 6 months and I shall return to Novi for another consultation to review my progress. I am really grateful to Novi and her work.
Please feel free to drop me an email for any reference on Novi’s consultation @ alain.yap@gmail.com. I will definitely shared my whole amazing experience I have gained.
Thank you and have a great day!

Noviana’s approach is very special: she combines with extreme delicacy the spirituality of Balinese Hinduism with the reader’s personality. In my personal case, these correlations were very accurate and highly resonate with my personal horoscope.Also, I was very impressed with the skilful manner she utilises only one deck of cards.In addition, she was very generous; Noviana feed me with a pure and loving energy – this is a rare quality in readers. I believe Noviana is the most accomplished reader I have met.My sister recommended Noviana to me; I recommend Noviana to all.

Super grateful to have met Novi . My first session with her was a life changing experience , she goes way back to the roots and shown me back my truth , what I need to see aka what I’ve been running away from . She puts on the puzzle back together is almost like she knows my life more than I do . I left felling happy and light. I can say she is an amazing nurturing human being with a special gift . Thank you so much for the love and care.

Be careful who you open yourself up to in Bali…Noviana is a holy women you can trust. She speaks with such clarity and I warmed to her immediately. I didn’t go to the meeting to test her clairvoyancy, I came and shared what I already knew and asked her for more information. I came away with a huge vision for my future. All my questions were answered. Thank you Noviana for sharing your gift. My pleasure to write for yo
u Noviana. The young girls I sent to you were profoundly affected by their meeting with you. You revealed so much direction for them also.I treasure your words “Don’t be scared… you are a well person” as fear tends to creep in when I am not careful. I wish you all the best and hope to see you again next year. I am busy now starting an Eco Resort Organisation for Bali and Indonesia. If you know anyone who should be invited, let me know or ask them to email balieco@hotmail.com for information.
Love

I have had the privilege of having experienced two readings from Noviana. The first 2 years ago and the second last month. Both readings were very impressive. Novi was able to tell me spot on and to the point what is happening in my life. She has given me meaningful insights about the processes I myself and the people surrounding me are going through. During the readings it felt like I was talking to my best friend who knows everything about me and who loves and respects me.
Since –to my astonishment- most of her predictions from the first reading have become reality, I went back for a second reading. What also surprised me, was that the predictions for the far future were similar during both readings.
Noviana is a beautiful soul with a great talent. It’s the best gift you can give to your self to have a Tarot reading from Noviana.

Novi, who comes from a family of Javanese mystics, is a very intuitive channel who clearly sees and communicates the ‘big picture’.

Truth, Insights and Wisdom

My experience with Noviana was powerful and very emotional, is like she was reading my soul like a book.
Every card gave me insights into my life and all my questions were answered naturally and effortlessly, it was like the cards were answering with a voice only Noviana knew how to interpret. It was fascinating. Insights and wisdom poured from her voice.
Since her reading, I had many incidents where I remembered clearly her guiding words. Her advice and suggestions resonated with my soul. I am very grateful that I had the opportunity to meet her and have the chance for a reading. She is truly gifted.
The future was very bright for me 🙂 I hope yours will be the same!
Since then, I sent many friends to her and they all came back amazed and peaceful.
