When you face tough challenges in your life, what do you do? It seems like the majority of us turn away from problems and challenges and instead opt for the distractions. When we are in tough places in life we can easily feel lost, alone and even abandoned. At times we even feel like the universe is pulling some sick joke on us and our inner frustrations and anger can reach a breaking point where we lose all faith.
The truth is that we are never alone. In a Course In Miracles, there is this extremely comforting phrase that says "if you knew who walks beside you, at all times, on this path that you have chose you will never experience fear or doubt ever again".
Coming to know this guidance that's available to you with all areas of your life is by no means an easy task in our modern world. This is just one reason why turning to the ancient mystical world can provide answers and the practice of Tarot readings is just one of many ancient spiritual practices that can help us gain divine guidance. It's a practice that's been around for centuries and while it was banned for decades it remained a very deep secret for those who studied it.
Tarot readings is not about predicting the future and its often confused with fortune telling and mystical practices that have no real value in our modern world. Tarot is all about revealing hidden ideas, hidden concept and overlooked aspects of your life. When we get caught up in the problems and frustrations of daily life we can become disconnected from the invisible spiritual world and Tarot readings is a way of reconnecting to this world where we can find great insight and guidance.
Tarot cards all have meanings and a skilled and gifted reader will be able to interpret your cards for you. While many so-called readers are nothing more than self trained amateurs, those who are very skilled and have the gift can provide some mind blowing information about you and your life and y will probably recognize these types of readers immediately. There is no hocus pocus and no "sales talk" - just a deep desire to help people. Look out for these readers. They are the ones who can truly help you.
So, if you feel lost, confused or just need some new insight on some of the problems and challenges in your life, then Tarot readings can help you and give you new insight to find the answers for yourself.
Almost everyone can interpret the Tarot. Someone who is not a psychic or who does not have a highly developed intuitive ability can still observe obvious patterns and general meanings in the Tarot cards, but this does not always yield the best results. The main reason behind this is that you are mostly too close to the subject to perceive the conditions as they actually are. However, a trained psychic can use a Tarot reading to reveal restraining behaviors or life patterns, put into perspective unambiguous people or circumstances, or even uncover an individual's destiny.
These days, Tarot is used according to two fundamentally different and often exclusive view points: the divinatory and the therapeutic. Whereas the divinatory Tarot deems to predict the future, the Therapeutic Tarot presumes human transformation. The purpose of this is to reveal and explain psycho-emotional blocks, uncertainties, and behavior patterns which hamper an individual's full realization, and resolving these factors by presenting precise guidance.
With the proper guidance, you can strike into your own intuition and inner wisdom, so you are able to identify with pin point accuracy whether and when something is right for you. It can help you trust your instincts and confirm your own feelings regarding what the proper next steps are for you. You can actually consider an "alternate future" to the one currently unfolding and reflect on more informed options and choices for yourself. You can investigate various different options to make your future the way you desire, and look at ways that can enable you to get to where you really want to see yourself.
Tarot is an unbiased observer of human affairs. Just like scientific experiments that present unbiased observations on physical stuff, the Tarot and a Tarot reader can present unbiased observations on an individual's life. Consider an imaginary library, where each book is an individual person's life, and every page in a book reflects a day in the person's life described from his own perspective. Let's say you read from a random individual's book an incident where, say, five people are involved, including the person whose book you are reading. Since there are five people involved, the incident is mentioned in the books of the four other people as well. Now, if you find the books of those four other people and read about the incident, you will most likely find completely different approaches to the incident in each description. If there was an onlooker to the incident, you will get the best account of the incident from the onlooker's perspective.
A Tarot reader reads the lives and minds of different people and sees things from several points of view, which increases the odds of seeing things accurately, as they are in real life. A trained Tarot reader who reads through other peoples' minds is more open and unbiased in his observations, and the idea of the reader is not contradicting with his expectations, since the reader is just like an onlooker.
