A tarot card deck is a form of divination that appeared as far back as medieval times, but whose origins remain a mystery. I use a more contemporary version, The Psychic Tarot, designed by the internationally renowned psychic medium John Holland, in my work. Now, before you start imagining me as a blackjack dealer shuffling cards in Vegas, I don’t focus exclusively on tarot as my means to connect with clients during intuitive sessions (I rely more on meditation and energy exchange). Nonetheless, the deck is a tool that I utilize to enhance those meetings.
Prior to a consultation (either in-person or over the phone), I focus on the client and select a tarot card (sometimes more than one, depending on the energy of the first) from my deck (it has to be my deck because my energy is connected to those cards). With 65 different outcomes, the messages contained in the cards offer insights to a overall themes that will resonate with people and their current situations. For example, a few weeks ago, I pulled “New Beginnings” for a client. During my mediation prior to the session, I received images and symbols that felt like opportunities for growth and exploration. Everything was validated when we had our conversation, as most of what was discussed kept coming back to “New Beginnings.”
There are other spiritual specialists (try saying that five times fast) who use tarot on a much deeper level. I have a friend in Palm Springs who analyzes not only the meanings of traditional tarot, but also the numbers (yes, they’re numbered) associated with the cards and the importance of the numerals as they relate to the calendar cycle. He also incorporates the study of a person’s astrological sign into the mix. I’ve attended one of his day-long workshops and it was a fascinating study. After his class, I determined the way I wanted to incorporate The Psychic Tarot into my practice.
I also crack open the deck for yours truly as well. Typically, each morning I simply ask “What do I WANT guidance on today?” Today’s selection: “Prosperity Begins,” which alludes to beginnings, wealth and new business. And, without much effort, I’ll keep my radar alert to signs, prompts and activities throughout the day that are connected to that particular card.
Now, if you’ll excuse me, Prosperity awaits!
Love and light,
