I know that I am being given information that to a large part cannot be identified or classified. This means when you ask a question, the cards will deliver a message – but I cannot always parse what the message is pertaining to – the present, the near future, the outcome, or a channel. I am an empath too, but in this article I am talking about the Tarot cards, which is a specific way of gaining information in a hard copy format.
When I start reading for you, I will give you a general overview without you giving me any details. This is to free associate – not to impress you, but to get a feel before we get going. I will keep the cards out after we have talked, and I can then go over the information.
I literally will give details that are being delivered without indication as to what tense it is in. This then the point where I ask you to write it down if possible, and then let me know what is going on in this person’s life – I don’t need a lot of detail, a basic overview after the initial reading will allow me to understand the time frames or tenses I am working with.
As I mentioned in my earlier blogs, you cannot ask a question and expect the answer to your question in a literal manner. Your cards may be picking up your subconscious and even you may not be aware of the real content of this part of your self. Carl Jung investigated and lauded the Tarot for its ability to unmask the unconscious – our darkest fears and our fantasies and it can be a fantastic tool for therapy and self investigation.
This means that a simple question of ‘Tell me about this’ or ‘Will it work out’ or ‘What is the outcome?’ do not always materialize. You cannot force the way your subconscious organizes information. So if we read these deepest recesses of our most private and unknown selves, we get answers we never expected, precisely because it is hidden, and we can investigate it when it does come out.
This leads me to giving you some pointers as to framing the question in a way that you will be open to with a satisfactory answer, even if it is not the answer to the question you asked! I know its maddening, but after years of studying the Tarot – after using it for myself and watching patterns emerge time and time again – it’s clear to me it is a study of the present, and even if you wanted a particular answer, as you don’t know all the facts, it cannot always be verified. For example – if you ask me about your partner – and all I get is financial information, then that is your answer – he is worried about work now – and not about you at this moment. Often the client cannot verify the information I have given them and may mark it as wrong or discount it, because they cannot call their partner to ask if this information is true or not!
This is frustrating, but with a few more minutes we can tease an answer out. I would never pay less than $60 for a psychic reading ever, unless I were getting a reading from someone on the street. I am a professional; I am a mystic, not a fortune teller, a nonofficial psychologist who despite not getting a degree has been working with other psychologists who have been happy to train me unofficially in their work to get the training I need. That is the magic of networking.
Having read text books and studied for years on and off the Internet I am confident I can provide you with some decent, informed support, though I will not advise in a clinical context and even though I do have some understanding of what it involves.
The best questions are: ‘Tell me about so and so” – I work best with motives. This means I may get all the detail on his life – not your life together. Given enough time, and I do recommend more than 6 minutes, I will be able to flesh out the answer for you more thoroughly. Really if I thought I could sum up a complex personality in less than five minutes I would be exceptional – above and beyond what our best psychologists can do after hours of consultations and years of training and field experience – and no one is that good.
Be open minded that the answer may not be comforting when you are fighting with someone – though I can explain to you their motives if you can take some criticism, as we are going into their darkest and most private parts. Be aware of the mutability of emotion, and that it is flexible, not fixed, and when calling you need to be aware that you have picked one moment to call to investigate but one moment in time in your relationship. That in itself is positive, as it means your situation will evolve. I am forever trying to get my clients to understand the best way of phrasing questions and the timing to call, and the outlook to have. I am doing this so you can understand your answers better, not to defend my work, but in truth to help you get the most from your reading.
