When we doubt the tarot cards.
Tarot cards are an exciting and excellent way of exploring who we are, what is really going on deep inside of us (of which we prefer to ignore at the best of times!) and giving wisdom to us. Many of my clients come for readings because they are seeking answers, seeking guidance, seeking change. Most of them leave a reading feeling inspired, maybe a bit frightened by what they saw or even a bit challenged by what they need to face.
Then, I get those clients who , at the time of their reading, acknowledge and realise that what the cards are telling them are true and then for days afterwards, start questioning them, casting doubt on the messages, trying to validate that acutally what they felt before the reading was more relevant than what the reading told them! They start asking me "Are you really sure that what the message was?", "But, I don't want to break up with him....", "I really do not face control issues but if I don't take control of this situation......" (sorry, you were saying?) and so it goes on.
I wait patiently while they struggle with what they know they should be dealing with but would rather not. After all, CHANGE can be very frightening. It takes you out of your comfort zone. It makes you face things you normally shove so deep down that you have almost forgotten they are there until they start nudging at you gently, reminding you that you are still harbouring issues, memories, thoughts that do you no good to hold onto. It was this nudging that made you consider a tarot card reading. It was this nudging that made you realise that you are actually not happy with where you are right now. I tell my clients that this "nudging" is often a sign from their spirit guides/angels/Higher Being (whoever it is that you believe) calling out "Hey you, it's time to take a real hard look at where you are".
For me, it's a calling to acknowledge and follow my true life-path.
Inevitably, the call from my doubting clients will come. Maybe a week later, a month later, even six months later. It may be a message, an email, even another consultation but their words always confirm what the tarot cards knew all along - "You won't believe what has happened...", "It's amazing!" or even, "You know, I should have trusted the reading in the first place!".
I do believe what happened, it's actually not amazing because the tarot cards were only doing what they could do - read off your energy vibrations. And, yes, I learnt myself, the hard way, that I can always trust the readings.
