My Personal Story
My name is Li Khomkham and I was born in Thailand, but I spent most of my childhood in the UK. For the past 10 years, I spend my days teaching students to speak, read and write Thai language at my home based in Leigh. When not teaching, I enjoy studying and journaling about the Tarot.
It took a long time to become me
When I look back at my personal and professional path, I had many experiences that felt like failure. During those times of difficult period in my life, I often wondered if I was doing something wrong. I even felt angry and punished because it seemed to me no matter what I did, nothing positive were happening in my life.
Eventually, I found myself stuck in a depressing living situation and for a long time I struggled to find a way out. I was depressed and emotional, but then just as I was ready to throw in the towel and continue down the hopeless path; my mind recalled to a “Tarot Reader” I met by chance
while on holiday in Thailand. She told me that a Divine Entity named “Goddess Uma” has been watching over me since the day I was born and that this protective beautiful Divine Entity wants to create a bond with me in an official way, so that she can lead me toward developing spiritual path because one day I will be called to fulfil my purpose. Admittedly, I thought she was off her rocker! Nevertheless, I decided to have a serious heart-to-heart with this Supreme Being.
How would I ever achieve the goals I so desperately wanted if you keep putting obstacles in my path?
Then, I closed my eyes and let my imagination take me to wherever it would. That was the first time I meditated! As I sat quietly in stillness trying to access a more intuitive state of awareness for meaningful answers to my question, I saw my younger “self” running through a big field, being chased by someone or something unknown. Whatever it was, it was gaining a distance on me and I was frightened. In the distance, I could see a great big fruit tree with all its splendid fruit. I told myself, if I could reach the tree before the scary unknown entity grabbed hold of me, I would be protected and relieved from my fear. So, I ran as fast as I could and when I reached the tree, the frightening entity disappeared. In its place, a beautiful woman appeared, “Well done,” she said as she handed me areward before dissipating right before my eyes. Suddenly, I realised what I was seeing. I was back in the recurring dream I used to have as a child and throughout my adolescent years.
I knew instinctively that, my road has been drawn long ago, and that obstacles that were put in my path was part of the growth process, the cultivation of my inner strength, a necessary part of my life journey if I am to successfully fulfil my life purpose. Finally, I realised that I had to stop fighting against the tides that insistently pull me toward fulfilling the commitment I have with this powerful Divine Being. I had to stop seeing the spiritual journey that I was being called to make as an ordeal, but instead a “special gift”. I had to stop telling myself that what I have been experiencing all my life is just illusion because this beautiful Divine Being really does exist. But most of all, I had to stop misinterpreting my intuition and making bad choices on purpose to test fate. I needed to face my fear and accept that I have a unique mission to accomplish during my life on Earth.
At that moment, I made a decision to completely surrender to the spiritual path and to detach myself from all those people and things that were holding me back and were stopping me from opening a door that intended only for me to go through. Once again, I got down on my knees and I begged for guidance.
You are the one who knows my true abilities as well as the true meaning of my existence in this lifetime, please lead me to the right places at the right times, so that I can achieve my destiny.
My journey to freedom
As I packed up my belongings ready to move into my new home, people asked me what I was planning on doing with my life. All I could say was “I don’t know, yet!”. With two young children, I have never felt so scared in my whole life, yet at the same time I have never felt so supported and guided either. This leap of faith changed the course of my entire life; it had lead me to say “Yes” to the desire that had been bubbling within me all my life and enrolled on a teacher’s training course. And later, launched into setting up my own teaching business, Thai Language Tuition UK. It was the most challenging transition period of my life, and at times, I could barely breathe with fear of failure. But underneath
the fear was the voice of love, encouraging me to dig deeper within myself, to listen, to feel, to tune into the Divine guidance and my intuition, to believe in my abilities to expand, to grow, to create new possibilities and to become more than ever before. I believed whole-heartedly that I was not alone in my fight; I never have been, and I will never be!
Meditation became a part of my daily ritual and I could feel the presence of Goddess Uma stronger than ever before, guiding me through every decision in life. I also started committing myself to journaling about Tarot, but most importantly, I stopped living my life pleasing everyone else, and started saying “YES” to my own heart-driven dreams!
Today, I am not only able to live independently, with a stable income as well as having enough time to take care of my two daughters, but my soul feels worthwhile because the sharing of my knowledge allows others to fulfil their learning goals that will ultimately lead them to live the life they want to live, in Thailand. The feeling of worthiness had lead me to feel more positive about my future decisions and have more energy to devote myself to help others achieve their personal goals as well as my own.
It's time to let my life’s work unfold
Over the years, I practised my belief in the Divine in privacy and only few people knew about my unlimited beliefs in the Tarot. In some way, the Tarot has become my inconceivable Life Coach because I have made several significant changes in my life using Tarot as guidance. For me, it also served as a tool that allows the opening of the channel of communication with the Divine Beings. I helped only those who I have the Divine’s permission to help, and I do so without drawing attention to myself. For me, it was extremely difficult to share my thoughts and feelings with those who are less sensitive, for fear of being judged.
But, then came the day where I felt a strong yearning in my heart that I am about to embark on a new path, doing something incredibly important that connected to my faith and my spiritual values. I knew instinctively that this is my intuition trying to
communicate with me, trying to prepare me for what is coming up ahead; although I had no idea what that would be. With each passing day these feelings became stronger and stronger; and I felt restless and unable to sleep at night because I was haunted by the feelings of wanting to start my mission. So once again, I got down on my knees and I asked for guidance.
Please show me a way towards achieving this remarkable goal, so that I can follow the path that intended for me.
Boy, did I get those signs!
The Divine messages can come in almost any form; through anything and anyone. After weeks of tossing and turning in bed at night wondering what will be my next phase in life, I received a call from my mother informing me that she has booked me on a Tarot Reading Course with a professional Tarot reader and mentor in Thailand as my birthday gift. I couldn’t help but smile to myself! That is the amazing thing about “Life Purpose”, you never know the full path until the time is right – as and when your Soul is ready to move forward and embrace it.
I thoroughly enjoyed the Tarot Reading Course and it felt great to have my knowledge challenged by a professionalreader who has been reading and training others for 20 years. This course gave me the confidence in my own knowledge, and yet I felt the need to open more doors, to find clarity about my gifts and to know more about who I am. As always, I asked Goddess Uma to send me my Spiritual teachers who can help with my next steps. Soon after that, I was directed toward a Clairvoyant Healer based in Australia, who runs online Psychic Awareness and Development Courses. I took a brave step and enrolled, and what an amazing journey it has been! As a great believer in being an eternal learner, I went on to study Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), NLP Training, Mindfulness and Life Coaching. Through these courses, I discovered I had an undeniable ability to help people tap into their own brilliant light and manifest real changes in their lives.
Only the Will of the Divine will be my limit!
Today, I feel at peace with my spiritual gifts, and even if the greatest sceptics of the world may not approve of my faith in something greater than this world, I am still surrounded by people who support my beliefs. My inner strength and devotion in my beliefs are extremely strong now, and I am ready to fulfil my soul purpose in this lifetime.
After a great deal of reflection, I intuitively knew I had to create Uma Tarot, so I promised to strive to help mankind with a sympathetic ear and to share knowledge about spiritualism, occult studies and psychic abilities with humanity.

Big Love, Peace and Joy!
