COME SIT WITH ME UNDER THE GINKGO TREE AND SEE HOW TAROT CAN HELP YOU...
The Tarot were originally a pack of playing cards called trionfi (and later tarocchi) which were used from the mid 1400s in Europe to play games with. By the late 18th century, some of these tarot decks were being used for divination and custom made decks with this purpose in mind began to be developed. Jump to present day and there are now hundreds of very different beautifully illustrated Tarot cards available.
No matter how different though, a Tarot deck is always made up of 78 cards each with its own symbolism, imagery and story. Every spiritual lesson we meet in our lives can be found within these 78 Tarot cards. There are 22 Major Arcana cards which represent life’s karmic and spiritual lessons. These cards are the ones with names like ‘The High Priestess’, ‘The World’ and one that always seems to pop up in the films… the ‘Death’ card.
The remaining 56 are the Minor Arcana cards which reflect the trials and tribulations that we face and experience on a daily basis. They are split into four different suits and like a normal deck of cards have Ace through to 10 which represent various day to day encounters, and four court cards with different personality characteristics i.e. Page, Knight, Queen, King.
A Tarot reading can help you understand what you need to know about a particular situation. Having a tarot reading can be like holding up a mirror to yourself so that you can access your subconscious mind, your intuition, and tap into the wisdom that lives within us all.
When the Tarot are consulted, you are shown the exact lessons you need to learn and master to live your best life… your authentic life. Tarot can help with your self development, making choices, manifesting goals, coaching others, planning a business, writing a book, meditating…. you name it!
If you have been reading through my website and finding out about Reiki and Animal Communication, you will already be aware of us all being energy and that we are all connected. This energetic connection also means that we connected to the collective, universal wisdom and our inner wisdom.
When we consult the Tarot cards - connecting with our intuition - we can then tap into this universal wisdom, connecting with the collective mind, not just with our own individual mind. This means that when we consult the cards with a question (whether for ourselves or on behalf of someone else) we are tapping into this collective wisdom.
We can then pick up all sorts of intuitive messages through the Tarot cards and through our connection with the collective wisdom. When consulting the cards it is these insights which are channeled through you to the person we are reading for, often in a very powerful way.
I am sure you can name a film, a TV programme or even a book where they have shown that often 'spooky' mystical person, dressed for the part, pulling cards from a deck making dramatic and dire fateful statements whilst atmospheric wispy fog drifts around them.... but this isn't what Tarot cards are all about.
Tarot can be used on a daily basis with a cup of tea next to you without even having to utilise a dramatic music score and a swirl of smoke as a way to tap into that intuition and inner wisdom. The imagery in the cards tap into your subconscious mind and intuition and from this place of inner power and wisdom you can realise how to make positive changes now so that you can manifest your goals and your dreams in the future.
Ok… so, say that the question you have in your mind is ‘when will I meet a new romantic partner?’...
What the Tarot can show you, via your chosen cards, are things like ‘this is where you are right now emotionally', ‘ this is how your immediate future looks if you continue as you are’, ‘this is our advice as to what you need to address or be aware of to change your outlook or emotional state so that you can clearly see what you are looking for and who you want in your life’....
So the cards in this instance are helping you see how to make a subtle yet powerful change in your outlook , your perception, where you will be open minded and open-hearted to find new love. It’s not happening to you but you are given tools to go and find them! Tarot isn’t going to predict when that someone new comes into your life… but it will reveal to you the patterns in your life that lead you to attract situations that seem to repeat… and need to be addressed or changed.
A Tarot reading can help you make sense of your thoughts, come to a decision, confirm what you already know, open up options that were there but you couldn't see for looking.... not scary at all...
