My callers are often asking me when did I figure out that I was psychic, as if I was possessed by a gift that is not accessible to all. Well I am not. I developed it. No doubt in my mind that I was a particularly sensitive and attuned child. I do remember having very vivid dreams that would come to pass. I remember knowing who was at the door or who was calling us before answering. I remember being able to look at someone and feel if something was wrong. But I partially attribute these events to keeping a daily journal which opened me up and gave me self-awareness. I think that we all have such dreams, or premonitations but are just conditioned to brush them aside and ignored them. I didn’t. And that is how my gift came to life. Paying attention, listening, watching and noting.
I think that the only difference between others and myself is my willingness to question the status quo and to trust my inner voice.
As far as reading or foretelling the future, I have chosen the tarot cards as my tool of choice, for channeling energy and to offer guidance.
Nothing stops any of you to learn the tarot and to develop uncanny abilities. My recommendation is to start by learning the meaning of the symbols. The Swiss psychologist, Carl Jung, saw all of the Tarot images as “descended from the archetypes of transformation*” and believed that its symbols were universal and common in all cultures.
But what it the tarot? Their origin is highly debated, but it is believed to have originated in Egypt. The traditional Tarot is a deck of 78 cards, which are divided into two main sections: a major arcana and a minor arcana. The major arcana is a set of 22 picture cards which are also called the greater arcana. These cards are pictorial representations of various universal experiences such as Death, Justice, Strength, and so on, and contain archetypal symbolism. Fifty-six cards of the minor arcana are divided into court and suit cards. The sixteen court cards are comprised of a King, a Queen, a Knight, and a Knave (or Page) for each of the four suits of the deck. The remaining forty cards are divided into the four suits called: Pentacles (also known as deniers, coins, or disks), Cups (coupes), Swords (epees), and Wands (batons or scepters). The suit cards are numbered from 1 (ace) to 10 for each of the four suits. The suit cards represent specific opportunities and lessons. The minor arcana cards are used to represent people, relationships, finances, action, energies, and forces.
There are many excellent books available for beginners. Pick one up and have fun with the cards, practice on yourself and your friends.
Have a sense of humour about reading the cards.
Remember that nothing is written in stones and that if we don’t like the outcome of a reading, you can change it. You may not be able to make someone love you or reunite with a past boyfriend or girlfriend, but you may change how the situation affects your life. It’s important to be in a calm and peaceful state of mind being reading for others and yourself.
I always prepare for my readings with a morning meditation and reiki energy. And ask for guidance for the highest good.
