Messages for Me in Other People’s Cards

Spiritual Messages can come from anywhere...

The message matters more than the source.

Sometimes, it’s just remarkable how much information there is for me, in someone else’s cards. Now, I’ve seen it suggested such phenomena is due to projection, poor boundaries, lack of focus or some type of failing on the part of the reader. But I don’t buy that for a minute!

  • People are drawn to others with similar or complimentary energetic vibrations.
  • Spiritual messages can come from any source.
  • Readings for others allow us to step back from ourselves, offering clarity otherwise unavailable.
  • We DO heal ourselves via healing energy directed at others. Love, light and goodwill heightens your own vibration as well as a target’s.

Besides–look at what you’re doing when you sit down to read for someone. I get quiet, get grounded, and clear my head. I pray for guidance and insight “in the highest good of all concerned.” While I’m thinking of the questioner in the asking, if I’m doing the reading, I am a concerned party!

In short, this happens to me frequently and I do not consider it a failing. I consider it a two-for-one special on spiritual wisdom. So thank you, Source! I appreciate your generosity.

What do you think about readers finding messages for themselves in readings?

Everyday Tarot, 06/06/11: Queen of Rainbow’s Miracle-Gro

daily-tarot-forecast-zen-queen-rainbowsI had an old car once that I hated. Hate-ed. I fussed and grumbled to myself every single time I got into that thing. I hadn’t picked it out, it steered funny, it was a piece of junk, blah blah blah. I didn’t keep anything personal in it, because I didn’t feel connected—I never bonded. Problem was, it was the best I had to drive at the time. And I was creating my own miseries.

Magic in Real Life: As Above, So Below?

“As above, so below” is the oft-repeated Hermetic principle of Correspondence. When I first accepted this idea into my consciousness fully, I have to admit, I felt a little crazy.

We had a water cooler in our utility room. One day, I walked in to water all over the floor—at least a gallon, maybe more! I cleaned up a huge, watery mess, stressed out and upset over whether the cooler was broken or if the remaining water was soon to be on the floor as well.

spilled-waterOdd thing was, after I cleaned it all up and went to examine the cooler, I couldn’t find thing one wrong. Nothing! The bottle was well-seated and not cracked, the cooler seemed to be operating properly and there was no indication of water where it didn’t belong except on the floor. No clues!

Later, I found out a child of someone I love passed, about that same time.

Knowing water represents emotion, it occurred to me the water on the floor was a massive spilling of emotion. I never found a “rational” explanation for the water, but since, then, I’ve paid attention. And yes, I’ve seen the connection reappearing—spilled water = spikes in emotion. Often, it’s me although sometimes, it’s someone else in my sphere.

But sometimes the link is so straightforward, it’s just funny. When I worked the last psychic fair, I climbed into my minivan after it was over, utterly exhausted from all the energy I’d expended (but not managed ideally) and tried to start up to go home. The engine light promptly came on and some kind of fizzle came out from under the hood. I eventually drove it home with the light on and later, found out the fuel pump had been blown out of it’s position and the van was leaking gas.

Couldn’t have come up with a better metaphor for how I was feeling. Since then, I’m a believer.

Do you see connections between the inner and outer worlds?

Everyday Tarot, 06/05/11: Feeding Your Needs / King of Pentacles

king-pentacles-daily-tarot-shadowscapesWhen I’m stressed out or overloaded, I have a surefire technique for making things better—I ask for whatever it is I need, releasing my concerns into the universal energy stream. And then, I take a nap!

This helps, pretty much every single time. It sounds so simple, and yet, it’s so powerful.

Everyday Tarot, 06/04/11: Know Your Baby / Page of Swords

page-of-swords-tarot-forecastGetting in touch with your true self must be your first priority. –Tom Hopkins

In the middle of an epically ugly custody dispute, I was certain of pretty much nothing. My list of unknowns included the greater good, where we were going to find the money, if the ends ever justify the means, and if it all would ever end, anyway!

The only way I made it through with sanity (mostly) intact was realizing I did have a yardstick: the kids’ best interest. That was the only thing that really mattered. If I always did my damnedest to do right by those kids, I could sleep at night, you know? That’s what got me through it, right there.

Today’s Tarot forecast is the Page of Swords, or “Princess of the Rushing Winds,” coming in inverted and associated with Earth (page) in Air (Swords).  This gorgeous version from Shadowscapes features the page cradling a baby swan, protecting him through the flight. Her attention is singular, squarely focused on the cygnet

Earthy pages make things real. In Swords, we’ve got “this idea,” see?—or a plan, an outline, agreements, anything in thought form—and it’s becoming flesh and blood reality. It’s time to negotiate and finalize. But we worry, about messing it up.

Mother-with-a-Baby-SwanWhenever you define what you’re signing on for, by default you also define what you’re cutting out. You can’t start anew without setting aside the old. So be clear here. (The Swords like that, when you’re clear.)

Cut through extraneous details; know what baby you want to protect. Then, it’s much easier to weigh individual decisions. What protects my highest value here? Holding that guiding principle close to you lights the way.

Do you know what baby you’re looking after?

How much do you tell the Tarot reader?

How much should you tell your psychic?CancerMom had an interesting comment about how much info you do (or don’t) give readers, having gotten some grief for being talkative. Some folks think if you talk too much, your reader will start milking you for details and telling you just what you want to hear. I’ve no doubt there are some that do exactly that. But I’ve also no doubt some of my Tarot people could testify, I’m not one of them!

It’s a matter of personal preference for readers, how much info they want to work with. Some folks want nothing–that way, they don’t have to filter out their own impressions from otherworldly flow. Some want birthdays or pictures or names to work with. Some want just a question, while others want to know whatever background on the issue you’re comfortable giving. Everybody works differently.

Personally, I don’t care. If someone wants to talk, they can talk! If they want to be quiet, they can be quiet. I can work either way. One works as well as the other for me. If there is something specific someone wants to know, it’s good to mention it so I’ll be sure not to miss asking. I try to always honor the question that brings you to me. But in general, we will get what we need to get, one way or the other. Tarot is just like that. Tarot’s got a very big mouth.

As a reader, how much information do you want? As a questioner, how much do you share?
