“It’s not about action… It’s about vibrational alignment.” Abraham Hicks
I use Tarot as a tool to bring more flow into life.
The Tarot is a great tool to see a situation clearly. It can really help you see what prevents you from manifesting what you wish or give you confirmation on what you are doing right. It can direct you to different options or help you align better with what your goal or desire.
My relationship with Tarot is one that is focused upon energy, and taking an active role in order to create the outcome one wishes to have or to bring change into one’s life in order to avoid negative patterns.
Tarot cards carries energy, not in and out of themselves, but with the symbols that they represent. The Fool carries the energy of innocence, purity, openness, whereas The Empress carries the energy of creativity, nurturing and care, and represents the Mother archetype. The Emperor express the energy of structure, authority, order and is the Father archetype.
I believe, the Tarot mirrors those archetypal energies and emotions that are inside us to various degrees and The Tarot makes us conscious of them through engaging in a dialogue with our subconscious.
The Goal of a Tarot reading is always to leave you clearer, and more empowered with a clear path for action or change.
TANTRA, ZEN, LAW OF ATTRACTION : “ An energetic approach to Tarot!”
The way I read tarot is very influenced by my spiritual path, and I implement in my readings a lot of what I’ve learned and integrated during my spiritual development. My main influences have been Zen teachings, Law of Attraction and Tantra.
Zen helped me cultivate an state of open-space or meditative state of mind in order to be receptive of messages in a reading. That « Zen-space » is called Non-dual mind because it is beyond the polarity of good and bad, right and wrong or labels.
The Law of Attraction helped me understand how things work in the realm of manifestation. It helped me understand the importance of intent and cultivating the right state of mind in order to manifest desires. It taught me the importance of having a clear intent to manifest our desires, and to also « Let go » in order to « Let Flow. »
Tantra helped me apply an energetic approach to my Tarot readings. To me all good Tarot readers are aware of that “energetic” aspect the tarot cards have. It is through working with the Masculine and Feminine archetypes and their energy that are represented within the Tarot cards that I use principles of Tantra in my tarot readings.
In my readings, I draw court cards that represents the Masculine or Feminine aspect of the people involved. For example if you are represented by a Queen of Swords, your emphasis when interacting in a relationship will be clear communication, honesty and truth while if you were a Queen of Cups, your interactions will be focused on feelings, emotions, empathy.
When I know exactly which specific type of either Masculine or Feminine energy a given challenging situation with a person involves, I understant better the dynamic of the relationship at an energetic level. The reader can then have a clearer picture of the dynamic that is going on within their partner based on the archetypes of personalities.
10 Questions Every Tarot Reader Must Answer borrowed from the blog the Left Hand Path
1. Were you mentored, or were you self-taught?
l was both mentored and self-taught. I took webinar, online classes mainly from Biddy Tarot. I took their Tf1 and Tf2 classes that were highly instructive, inspirational and where I met a community of very nice like-minded people. Otherwise I was mainly taught the Tarot by my mother when I was young, who used the Tarot de Marseilles mainly.
2. Are you a psychic or a Tarot reader?
I’m an ” intuitive” Tarot reader. I only read the cards and the story they are telling me through the free associations of symbols that comes into my mind while looking at the cards. I do have sometimes “flashes” of inspiration, or images that will come into my mind, but I don’t consider myself a Psychic, as I don’t depend on clairaudient or clairvoyant messages for a reading. I do consider myself an empath though, as I feel I connect with a client’s energy and their intent in a reading and can feel intuitively the questions that needs being answered that will help achieve clarity at the end of a reading.
3. Are your predictions accurate, and is accuracy important to you?
I don’t predict the future per say, I only reveal patterns that are more likely to occur based on the present emotional states of the querent and everyone involved in the reading. Those patterns are often hidden from the querent due to their conflicted desires, or messages they receive externally and interpret differently than what the situation actually is. So in that regards are my predictions accurate? Are the patterns I reveal to the Querent accurate? Yes.
But more than just revealing the patterns what is most important to me is giving different options, different paths, obstacles to avoid, advice to follow in order to navigate those patterns in a more “flowy” way. Like Lao Tzu says: “To be conscious of difficulties helps you avoid them.”
4. Is there anything you can’t predict in a reading?
A tarot reading reveals patterns and in that sense it predicts what is likely to come. Whenever I look at the patterns to come or draw a card for a future outcome, I will always focus on solutions to a given challenge. My reading will never leave you unempowered, miserable or wallowing in self pity nor will it leave you with an unrealistic sense of joy, based on saying what the reader wants to hear.
My reading will only leave you with clarity on a situation and mor options in order to create your own future.
If you ask me : When will I get pregnant, married or die? I’ll answer with : WHAT can you do NOW? to get pregnant, married or confront your fears of death? I answer the Whens and the Whys with What, « What you can do? »
What is it that you can do to realign with Flow? In a state of Flow you either achieve all your desires effortlessly or you realign your desires to things that are more serving. The Goal is Flow, and the Tarot is a tool that can be used to achieve that.
Do I still do reading about timing? Yes. Based on your current “vibrational states of being” (to borrow a term from Law of Attraction) I will predict the current best timing for your decisions at hand.
5. Do you use only Tarot, or are you multi-disciplinary?
I use different tarot and Oracle decks and I also use Runes.
6. Is the message in the cards, or in your head?
I read the cards first and foremost, then a free flow associations of symbols tells the story. How do the cards relate to one another, which detail in a card catches my attention? How does it relate to the question of the Querent? Why has this card jumped from the shuffle? There is always a main theme, a main story plot when a reading is revealed, then there are subplots that adds the details and contribute on the accuracy of the reading in revealing a certain pattern.
7. Are you a priest or a fortune-teller?
Neither. But I work with affirmations, energy work, visualizations.
8. Are you a fixer or a looker?
Coming from a Zen/ nonduality spiritual background I don’t see the other nor myself as something that is broken and needs fixing. I feel the more you fix the more you need fixing. It may be useful at a certain stage but it often becomes an endless process. Tarot being just a tool can be used in that tedious process or can be used in more holistic way. I start from the assumption that you are already complete, full, whole. The only fixing that needs being done is getting out of the way of what naturally unfolds … We are the only obstacle from seeing the patterns clearly and the ability to navigate through them. I use The Tarot to clear out the cobwebs only to reveal what we already know…
9. Do you read for free, or for fee?
Tarot reading is a full time gig, I charge a fee that I feel reflects the “energy exchange” that my service provides.
10. Is there anything you won’t predict in a reading?
I think I’ve already answered that one. No death, illness stuff…
I’m not bothered about the “spying” on your ex or lover thing like many other professional tarot reader. To me, it’s only very volatile emotions one is spying on, that can easilly change the moment the reading is over…So I warn that it may be what you see about this person now, but don’t get too attached to it because it may already be different now. The question is “What are you to do with your own emotions now? ” It s not about them but it’s about you.
