Tarot Card reading is a divine practice which many of us believe in and follow, to help us live our lives in the best possible manner. Life can be extremely confusing at times, so it is important to figure out ways which can give you guidance of some sort, and Tarot card reading is one such way. While some people can read their own cards, most individuals rely on psychics to get their Tarot card reading done. However, a reading may not go the way you thought it would, so here be some things which you should look out for, and they will help you have the best reading possible.
Be Well Prepared
When I say be prepared, I mean that you should have some prior knowledge about Tarot cards and have an idea of how the reading will go. You should be prepared to question the psychic, especially if there is a particular problem for which you need a solution. Furthermore, you may find that your reading goes differently than you predicted it would. It is important to realize that you may not even be aware of certain changes which will happen in your life or which you will have to make, so keep an open mind when going for a reading.
Make Sure Your Reader Is Ethical
A good tarot card reader will treat you well. She or he may need to tell you some tough things to hear, a good one will be kind and considerate of your feelings. This means they should be patient, non-judgmental and kind. When telling you details about your situation, they should be thorough and shouldn’t be rude. Furthermore, they should make your options clear, tell you how you could possibly deal with this situation, and give you the resources you need to help you achieve solutions.
Consider Getting a Second Opinion
When you have a Tarot card reading session, you may be given a clear-cut solution to your problem. However, this doesn’t happen in most cases. The reading will aid the process, and the reader is essential to this process. However, if your reader is telling you that only they can help you solve the problem that you are facing, they are basically forcing you to follow only their instructions. In such a situation, go for a second opinion because that is not what a reader should be doing, as it is ethically wrong.
Interpreting Tarot Cards is something which takes significant practice and a certain amount of reading up. While many people prefer to read their own decks, there are others who prefer experts to read their decks. Sometimes, it is just not possible to schedule a reading, especially before a major decision must be made or when an unforeseen event has occurred. Owing to this, it always helps to have a general idea of what Tarot Cards mean, thus helping you interpret them whenever needed.
Firstly, Tarot Cards can be divided into Major Arcanas and Minor Arcanas. The former, as is evident by the name, represents the major events in your life. They have the power to indicate an important change, and it is essential to give them attention when they are part of your deck. The Minor Arcanas are also similar in importance. While the Major Arcanas indicate major events in your life, the former will help you navigate through life on a day to day basis, along with helping you understand the meaning of the Major Arcana cards.
As these cards focus on a major part of our life, let us pay close attention to them first. There are 22 cards which come under this category, with each depicting a different thing:
The Fool- Indicating innocence or a childlike existence, this card encourages you to begin a new chapter of your life with minimal inhibitions.
The Magician- This card indicates that you are master of your own Fate, telling you that your skills and powers are enough.
The High Priestess- This card may seem like one which indicates mystery, and it also pushes you to rely on your intuition.
The Empress- This card symbolizes motherhood, in any form, and is a positive card.
The Emperor- Like the above-mentioned card, this one indicates fatherhood. It symbolizes an ordered and structured existence.
Like the Major Arcanas, these also have various meanings. They are significantly greater in number compared to the former- making a total of 56 cards, which are divided into the Suit of Cups, Pentacles, Wands and Swords. Each of these suits has different meanings, and interpreting them correctly is just as important as interpreting the Major cards.
For further information on these cards, you can get more information and make sure that your journey into Tarot Card reading is one which gives the right results.
Knowing what your purpose is in life isn’t as easy as some people make it sound. While many of us believe that after a certain age or after a certain life event, we will know what the purpose of our life is. At one point in 2012, even I thought I had lost sight of what my life’s purpose is- even though I was doing exactly what I am doing now at that time as well. It is easy to lose sight of what we are working to achieve sometimes. The good news is, you can always find your way back, and you are not alone in this struggle. Here are three steps which may just be what you need to find your purpose again.
Find a Spiritual Practice
There are several spiritual practices which you could adopt, ranging from meditation to using spiritual guides to prayer. You could use a variety of practices or just stick to one. However, finding a spiritual practice is something which really helps you find your purpose again, as it helps you realize that you are not as alone as you thought you were and increases your faith.
Build Your Faith Muscle
Start building your faith a small step at a time. You start this by looking at the current things you have trust and faith in. It can be as simple as you have faith that the sun will rise, or you will take your next breath. Then turn this faith towards whatever you feel is the source of creation of the universe or wherever you feel is an outside source helping you. As you start trusting more without perceived expectations, your inner faith starts building. This does take a bit of action and balance.
Keeping a Journal
Many people find that keeping a journal is a tedious job, owing to which most people don’t want to do it. However, starting a journal is important, and you can start by getting or using a notebook. Color, draw and write down wherever you desire.
Keeping this journal can be a treasure. This is because we experience different things at different stages of your life. You never know which experience or which feeling of yours helps you at a tough time later. Furthermore, the difficulties we face in our life help strengthen our soul, so reading about this in the future when you need the guidance of that kind, can really help you immensely.
When you feel lost in life, always remember that things aren’t going to always be like this. By using these tips and aiming to get your 12 chakras to align, you can find the purpose you were looking for.
Are you struggling with really finding your purpose and trying to figure out what your life mission is? Today I’m going to give you some tips on the things that I personally did when I felt lost, I felt unsure what I was going to do. I didn’t know what I didn’t know at that time, and one of the main things that I would have conversations with with my friends was, is I don’t know, or at the time, they didn’t know, or we both didn’t know, we were going through life transitions. That was big, and I’m going to read a little bit out of my journal here that I wrote, and maybe you might be able to identify with this, because after and during my transition, I actually started feeling completely lost.
All I have left is a faded memory of a life I once lived. The substance of it has been removed. The infinite, endless essence of my soul is now being awakened. When I wrote this in 2012, I felt like I was drowning. I was in the same position. I was doing the same thing on a full-time basis for over 20 years, and I got lost when that was no longer a part of my life. So one of the very first things that I started to do was I started to find a spiritual practice. Number one, find something that works for you that’s some kind of a spiritual practice. Because at the time, I felt like God has abandoned me. I felt like my guides were not talking to me, and when you’re a psychic like I am, and you’re so used to listening to your guides and hearing what they have to say, and then all of a sudden you have silence, it’s a little eerie, it’s a little uncanny. And so find some type of spiritual practice that works for you, that starts building your faith muscle.
Number two, build your faith muscle, because sometimes we have to move through our own stuff on faith alone. And it’s not an easy task. It really is not an easy task, and sometimes it gets very, very difficult. Now, the third part of this that you can start doing today is start writing it out, journaling it, keeping a documentation of your process. Because when you’re going through trials and tribulations, your soul is strengthening itself and it’s preparing you for something you’re going to be doing in the future. So having a document of what you went through is really powerful and is going to be useful in the future.
Now, I didn’t know back in 2012, I would be using a lot of what I wrote in different articles and books, so keep that as a reminder. If you put a comment below, I will send you an article on the 12 chakra system that is going to help you start understanding where you’ve gotten lost. Because one of the main problems that I had when I was lost, dazed, and confused, was I didn’t realize that I had 12 chakras. I thought I only had the seven, and understanding the 12 chakra systems was something that really helped me start utilizing these abilities, in addition to the three tangible things that I just gave you. So again, put your comments below and I will send you my article on the 12 chakra system. Until next time, abundant blessings.
Many people scoff at the idea of having psychic abilities, such as telepathy or levitation- to name some of the commonly known ones, but they definitely exist. While many don’t believe in this, a large chunk of the world’s population believes in the existence of a supernatural world. This world is not part of the physical world we live in, but it isn’t that difficult to connect with this world.
What Exactly Does It Mean to Be Psychic?
Well, being psychic generally means having the ability to tap into the spiritual world or use extrasensory perception, using that energy to perform various acts which can include:
Astral projection- Projecting your consciousness outside of your physical body.
Automatic writing- Writing or drawing unconsciously
Divination- Being able to gain insight through processes such as Tarot card reading
Levitation- Being able to fly or float
Telekinesis- Controlling objects through your mind
Mediumship- Having the ability to talk to spirits
Premonition- Identifying future events which are about to occur
Retrocognition- Know what is happening at a distant location
Psychometry- Gauging information about something through the sense of touch
While a selected few are able to tap into these abilities without specific training or guidance, most individuals need to practice the wielding of such abilities. Normally, you have to work towards becoming proficient in the above-mentioned psychic abilities.
Which Signs Indicate That You Might Be Psychic?
Interestingly, there are several signs which can indicate that you may have psychic abilities. If you can relate to these signs, you can work towards tapping into them to increase your power over such abilities.
Ability to sense the future- This ranges from being able to sense danger, get certain vibes from a place or person indicating how your interaction with them will turn out and having a strong feeling about a future event. Another manifestation of this is having visions and vivid dreams frequently, which normally have some meaning in your life.
Ability to communicate with the spiritual world- This normally translates into seeing spirits, talking to them, detecting their presence or their auras, hearing voices and seeing things in your peripheral vision.
Ability to gauge details about other people- Normally, psychics can pick up information about other people just by touching them, being around them or sensing their auras. This allows them to give great advice.
Tapping into psychic abilities can really change the way you perceive the world, and identifying these signs should set you on the right path.
The key to success is not how much time you spend working on a certain project, but it is how productive your efforts were. Often, productivity is directly linked with effective time-management. You may notice that successful people often have calendars or journals which they regularly update, allocating time slots to different tasks. This can prove to be quite helpful in terms of organizing their work, but also helps them achieve their goals sooner than everyone else. However, it isn’t only about managing your time.
Managing Your Personal Energy Is Just as Important – If Not More
Often, we take our time for our work or tasks, but we don’t seem to be getting anything done. For example, we switch on the laptop but end up staring at the screen for a long time before just giving up- thus wasting our time and not even getting any work done. Such instances tend to occur, with differing frequency from person to person.
The reason for this differing frequency is that while some people learn how to manage their energy well, others aren’t even aware that it is something that needs attention.
What Is Your Personal Energy?
While your physical energy obviously plays a role in how you live your life, your mental energy can sometimes play an even greater role. Your mental energy can include your emotional energy and your spiritual energy.
While your emotional energy deals with how draining your personal life experiences have been, with the impact your feelings have playing a role here- your spiritual energy basically refers to the state of your soul, which could or could not be related to your religion.
Why Does Personal Energy Need to Be Managed?
Well, when you’re low on physical energy, you can just get a good night’s sleep, change your diet or exercise more regularly- but with your personal energy, it can be difficult to replenish it. When your personal energy is low, even having the physical energy needed to complete tasks isn’t enough, and while you have the time, you still aren’t seeing the results.
This is because your mind is just exhausted, making it difficult for you to concentrate and thus to function. So, if you are using a calendar to manage your time, good for you. However, design a schedule and build a mindset that caters to your emotional and spiritual energy as well.
3 Tips On How To Manage Your Personal Energy:
First and most importantly is to learn to set energetic boundaries with not only family, friends, loved ones and strangers – also set personal boundaries on energies, thoughts and feelings.
Secondly, Look for ways to uplift your personal energy when you are hitting low points. Plan this ahead of time so you don’t keep sliding down a slippery slope into depression or other emotions that drain you.
Third, do your best to learn about your positive strengths and still acknowledge your weaknesses. We are all human and are perfection in motion; when you allow yourself to know you are doing the best you can with you currently have, then be gentle on yourself.
Feeling as if you aren’t being heard and are invisible to those around, you can be an extremely unpleasant experience for sure. Many of us struggle with this feeling, and for many individuals, it is something they go on experiencing for the rest of their life. Our solar plexus chakra, which is in the middle of our bellies, is the one that normally controls this aspect of our life. This could have been blocked owing to some childhood or past experience, which you, unfortunately, have no control over- leading to this unpleasant experience. To help you fight this feeling, here are three strategies which you should adopt as soon as possible.
Evaluate Your Current Situation
Many people don’t realize the impact their surroundings have on how they feel and go years without realizing what the source of their problem is. This needs to stop. Look around yourself and find out where you feel invisible the most. It could be at your workplace or when you are with your friends or family. Consider figuring out where you feel the most unempowered and vulnerable. Without realizing it, you may have taken the servant or slave role upon yourself, which obviously leads to you feeling invisible.
Find Ways Which Empower You
As you have figured out when it is that you feel the most unempowered, you can start figuring out ways to empower yourself. This varies from person to person. For me, taking baths and keeping Selenite, which has the power to remove negativity, are the ways by which I empower myself. Obviously, it is not the same for everyone, therefore sort out what empowers you and then make that practice a daily or very regular one. Always make sure that the method you choose doesn’t hurt others or yourself.
Build Your Mental Garden
Your mental garden is obviously made up of your thoughts and perceptions, which obviously controls your behavior. Being a people-pleaser or giving in too easily is something that you need to work on, and this can be done by building your self-esteem and increasing your confidence levels. By ensuring that your mental garden is peaceful, you can achieve the former- which will ultimately ensure that you are not invisible to others around you.
Are you struggling with not being heard, and sometimes you feel like you might be invisible? Today, I’m going to give you three strategies so that you can start being seen and heard right away.
Today I’m going to talk about what happens when you might have had your power taken away when you were a child or at some other time, which actually means that when we are not being seen, when we are not being heard, our solar plexus chakra, which is the one right in the middle of the belly, is being blocked, and your personal power was compromised by some circumstance earlier in your life. So I’m going to keep this nice, quick and easy, so grab a pen, grab a paper, and if you’re driving, please make sure you drive safely.
So what can you do about not feeling like you’re being seen, not feeling like you’re being heard, is three different steps:
So the first step to really start to unblock yourself is to start looking at your current situation.
Where do you feel unempowered in your everyday life?
Is it at work?
Is it at home?
Do you feel like it’s your relatives, or maybe it’s certain friends or family?
So take an assessment of where you feel like you’re having an unhealthy relationship, feeling unempowered.
Now, this is kind of like the unhealthy servant role that you’re taking on. It’s an archetype that a lot of us take on. So if you’re feeling like you’re a slave and you’re slaving away, pay attention when you start feeling like that and when you feel disempowered on an everyday basis.
Now the second step is now that you’ve discovered, or you’ve taken an assessment of where you feel unempowered or disempowered, is start looking at ways that you can start empowering yourself on a daily basis. I like to take long baths. That’s how I empower myself, one of the things. I like to have salt crystals lying around my house. I personally like to collect different types of rocks. I usually have Selenite next to my desk because Selenite night knocks out negativity.
And finding something that works for you, where you can find ways to start empowering yourself in your everyday life, without being manipulative, without being controlling, and without being a people pleaser, then these are going to help you start taking back your control. And more importantly, it’s going to help you start being seen and being heard.
Because most people when they think you’re a people-pleaser when they think that you’re a pushover, a doormat, etc., they don’t pay attention to you. They don’t listen to you and they don’t see you.
So the very third step, the final step of what you can start doing today is to start building your own self-esteem and your own self-confidence by cultivating your mental garden right here. What are your thoughts? What are you thinking, what are you putting out so that it can come in?
