MY TAROT PHILOSOPHY
“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 what prevents you from manifesting what you wish. It can clearly help you see what your resistances and blocages are, and can also by way of reflection gently veer you off to different options that serves you best when those desires clearly arent what are serving you best at this moment.
The King of Wands represents energy, vision and passion and is the symbol of my relationship with Tarot, one that is focused upon energy.
Each Tarot card carries energy, for example The Fool carries the energy of innocence, purity, openness, whereas The Empress carries the energy of creartivity, sensuality, nurturing and care. We all carries those energies inside whether expressed or latent within us. The Tarot mirrors those energies that are inside us and makes us conscious through engaging in a dialogue with our unconscious or our “Higher self” which energies are best serving us or not.
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 alot of what I’ve learned and integrated during the years spiritually. My main influences have been Zen teachings, Law of Attraction and Tantra.
Zen helped me cultivate that open space or meditative state of mind in order to be receptive of messages in a reading.
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.
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.
This influence from Tantra can be seen in my Life & Soul Path and Love & Relationships readings where I draw court cards that represents the Masculine and Feminine aspect of the Querent. I believe in the power of visualisation and affirmations and that one can draw energy and develop certain qualities inherent in those Masculine/Feminine archetypes. In Tantra there is a belief that we carry both Masculine and Feminine energy within ourselves, but one is more prevalent within us and that’s what makes us to embody either a more Masculine or Feminine identity.
The Universe Is Full of Magical Things Patiently Waiting for Our Wits to Grow Sharper.
― William Butler Yeats
In my Life & Soul path reading my Feminine archetype is the Queen of Cups, which represents my receptive, empathic and more compassionate aspect of my personality, whereas my Masculine archetype is the King of Wands, who represents more a concern with having a vision, energy and passion. Whenever challenging situations occurs, we often need to switch from a more masculine energy into a more feminine and vice versa. When I know exactly which specific type of either Masculine or Feminine energy a given challenging situation calls for, I feel better equip to deal with them. It is through this process of visualisation and meditation that Tarot reading takes on another dimension, becomes empowering, has an energetic component and becomes MAGIC.
