What Is A Tarot Reading and How Can It Help Me

By Huseyin Turkay  

What Is Tarot Reading would be the first question that comes to mind, especially if you are either new or an enthusiast, looking for more insight and understanding? It is always necessary to educate yourself with the truth of Tarot Card Reading and to fully appreciate their origin and purpose, and why they came into existence. There is much misunderstanding and reservation when it comes to having a tarot reading, and this is solely down to the lack of appropriate knowledge and the understanding that provides. An example would say, a word such as “divination” and to most, this word and collected association would present itself in quite a theatrical and dramatized fashion, that can be so far from the truth yet leaving fear and trepidation in its wake. Another example would be the word “Occult”. Now I know exactly what you are thinking, and the sensations it delivers, as-consciously you begin experiencing the resistance within it.

Occult mealy means “hidden knowledge” not, satanic blood thirsty ritualistic devil-worshipping… etc. etc., you get the gist of my meaning, the list could go on and on, so we have to become the researcher/experimenter in our own lives, trusting and following our intuition all the way when it makes itself apparent in whichever way it chooses to do that, which ultimately leads us to question the given reality or truth, a word an event or an experience will not feel as it appears it should and will warrant a change of perception of it, i.e. your real truth will want to emerge, breaking the inappropriate association you have that keeps you locked in a limited state of consciousness and awareness which is not your real truth of it at all.

It makes sense that we are confused and hesitant when it comes to Divination, and tarot readings being the subject of focus is just a part of the bigger picture of that which we all are, by our true nature the ability inherent in all of us. The media has overdramatized, blown out of proportion with fiction and mystery the whole real true concept of Spiritual Awareness and Psychic Ability, implying that only a few selected individuals have been bestowed with this ability to reach higher states of consciousness, to demonstrate psychic ability and communicate in other dimensional states. This is not the case, we can all achieve raising our vibrations at will, given we know how to, with the intention of connecting to your wisdom mind, or Buddha mind to receive guidance from the higher-order.

The imagery of the Tarot cards is specifically created to encourage and stimulate interpretation from the sub-consciousness part of your mind and to deliver that interpretation in a story like a manner. One has to let go of all pre-conceived notions and limiting beliefs and to become somewhat childlike again and open-minded to the amazing possibilities it can provide.

Another important element to having a personal tarot reading whether in person or via telephone is not to judge and manipulate your Tarot Reading as its enfoldment relies solely on your willingness to be open-minded and receptive to digest the information given without dismissing it because of ones lack trust and faith, and then to apply that knowledge into your life.

More often than not you will find that your personal tarot reading will reveal many relevance’s and appropriateness to you as you continue on with your day, recalling and reflecting on the information received when the time is right, which you will know. You will then find the confirmation you were looking for has made itself apparent, and you will know it and feel it. Having a Psychic Tarot Reading will not attract evil forces to your door or hound you with misfortune and negativity. This is just one person’s perspective and reality within the realm of infinite possibilities. There is much for us to base our opinion on, however; we must always be diligent and honest with ourselves when digesting the information given. By doing so you begin to release any past negative associations and attachments you may have picked up that has clouded one’s own power and clarity of judgment and right perspective with trust, in the process of life and the Universes guiding influence that knows better than we think we do, when it comes to us knowing what would bring us contentment and peace. Trust in what you feel when you are in the flow of your Tarot Reading.

We are all on a magnificent journey of self-discovery whether we are aware of it or not, and a tarot reading is really just a mere spoke on a wheel which leads to that greater universal truth of all-knowing. You will find that all developed Spiritual People will find their own method and tool of application in the development of their awareness and state of consciousness whichever is suited to them as a stepping stone to enlightenment and self-actualization.
