If you are into tarot reading you already know a thing or two about the deck of the cards that is behind the mystical art that’s all rage these days. However, this divine predictive art needs to be seen sans frills and fluff used to market it by some. Being able to see it beyond its market value is your first step towards getting deep into it. After all, to use it for guiding people to overcome tough situations of their lives is your ultimate goal.
To achieve this goal you need to begin with getting an expert tarot teacher with a carefully designed tarot card reading course. And in the due course you will know that learning about the tarot is all too well but actually intuitively mastering it takes reaching heightened level of meditative states.
That could be a catch; especially to those who think that meditation is not for them for various reasons. Reasons like:
- They are not religious
- They are not spiritual
- They do not know about meditation
- There’s too much drama spread around in the name of meditation
- They don’t have any guru to guide them into the process
- They are not mystical enough.
… And many more like that.
However, if you are reading this blog, you are already in the mode to dislodge your reason (which may not be among the ones listed above) and look at meditation from a new angle and in new light to uplift the mystical shroud around the tarot. Advance Tarot classes might already include sessions on meditation to give you a taste of all this blah-blah. But only when you begin to experience the taste of stillness and clarity that meditation can imbue, you know what you have always been up to.
