Let the Tarot Cards Choose YOU

Let the Tarot Cards Choose YOU

There is often a burst of excitement one gets when an interest in learning the tarot first presents itself. It often leads that person to rush out the door buying the first deck they see, or perhaps the most popular or least expensive. This is not a bad idea if the goal is simply to learn the basics and becomes just a passing fancy. But if you find that learning the basics has only sparked your desire to explore the world of tarot further, perhaps even to give readings on a professional level, I suggest finding a deck or decks that really ‘grabs’ you, that you feel a personal connection with.

It can be difficult to find the perfect set when faced with rows of decks and books that vary greatly ranging from different styles of tarot cards to Angel Cards to spirit boards. Maybe you will get lucky and one will ‘jump’ out at you letting you know it’s the right one. If that doesn’t happen right away, here is a technique that has always worked for me. It helps to ask your guides for help when doing this. Choose a few different tarot sets that you like and place them side by side on the shelf in front of you. Pick up each set individually, paying attention only to the sensation you get from holding it in your hand. Go through all the decks one at a time making note of what you feel. You may feel nothing except the weight of the box for most of them. It’s different for everyone but there will be a physical sign that’s just for you. A shiver that travels up your arm (as it does for me) or a tingle at the back of your neck, your stomach could flip, your heart might race… there should be some physical sign letting you know. Repeat this several times narrowing down the choices until you get to one, usually you will get the same sensation over and over from the deck that’s supposed to be yours.

I recently went shopping for a new deck but had no clue about what I wanted. After staring at all of the choices for almost an hour I had it down to three that I liked, one that I thought was best. I used this technique to help me pick out of the three, and I was surprised by what happened. When I picked up the one I liked the most I got nothing, felt nothing at all. A strong shiver went up my arm and my heart flipped when I picked up a box of Angel cards that I really didn’t have any interest in. I tested it several times and every time got the same sensation when I picked up the set, so I bought them not really sure what I would do with them as it isn’t my usual style. Our instincts are never wrong though, I absolutely adore these cards and of course they are a perfect addition to the tools I already use.

As a clairvoyant tarot reader, it’s important that the cards I use work well for and with me energetically. One of my favorite decks is The Osho Zen Tarot, not only are they beautiful to look at, for me they act as a gateway into the client’s life. When using these cards during a reading, it’s like I’m given instant access to that person’s energy field allowing me to ‘read’ information about them and their lives past and present. A person doesn’t know what will end up being their gateway, and it’s a good idea to try different types of divination to access full potential of your gifts.
