Psychic Gambling Help?

Is it evil? Do you think it’s appropriate to use Tarot, psychic or intuitive skills in gambling? Is that different to you than using astrology to time bets? Or doing money magic spells on your lotto tickets?

What sort of supernatural help do you think it’s okay to request regarding gambling games of chance?

Should you “Test” your Tarot reader?

Testing the Tarot Reader?

Should you test your psychic readers?

Anybody who’s done readings has, at some point, heard those lame jokes. “Why don’t you tell ME what my question is? You’re the psychic, right?”

Sniff. Sniff. Smells like smug. Bah!

And God help us if they start in on why I haven’t won the lottery yet. Someone is liable to get smacked.

Now, I don’t consider it my mission in life to proselytize for the Woo-Woo. Which may seem odd, considering this website, because I do preach it. I love preaching it! But I’m not seeking out to win over people who are antagonistic toward what I do. Not my mission.

You don’t like Tarot? You think psychic work is a big load of bull? Okay.¬† I can see that’s not our common ground. Been there, myself, and respect your sacred right to find your own path. I can wish you well, regardless. Love and light right out to your skeptical ass.

Sometimes, though, I’m tested by people who already believe in the work I do. They just want to make sure that I’m capable of doing it, right. They want to know if what I’m saying right now is what they’re needing to hear.

I understand this. Being sparse with details, looking for clearer signs, is seeking confirmation. Most want clear evidence. Especially when we’re anxious or in pain, we seek extra reassurance. I understand and trust the Source will provide whatever is most needed.

But I’ve had less benign tests at times. Sometimes, people set up little snares, to see if I catch on. I keep my mouth shut even if I do notice–what’s the point of calling it out? But it doesn’t mean it’s not bothersome or offensive.

I see the real test for any reading is an internal sense of “fit.” A good reading leaves you feel informed, empowered, and, well…right. It’s like a click in your brain, a sense of relief or resolution washes over. You know you’ve gotten a good reading because you can feel it. You know best here.

Is it okay to repeat Tarot questions?

Don’t keep asking. Let the answer come into focus.

We approach Tarot on issues that matter to us–sometimes, a lot. Maybe this is why some fear Tarot–there’s almost an air of inevitability once “the cards have spoken,” as if all has been magically preordained and there is nothing left save cowering at the eternal manifestation. And we get upset, because, well, even with Tarot talking, we’re just not necessarily hearing.

“What does it mean? Am I sure I’m understanding this message? What if it’s really not what I want? What if I’m getting it wrong? Can I change it? Does Tarot say the same thing today as yesterday? Why? Oh my God, oh my God. What now?!?”

We believe Tarot holds answers, which is why we ask the questions. But sometimes we don’t understand¬† the answers or don’t like them. So we may ask, again and again–all with the same intense, scattered emotional energy. Panic readings, I call them. And you know, they don’t help much.

Tarot works predictably. The readers’ emotional state IS part of the energy connection. Fear produces static and distortion, scrambling signal. If you keep pulling cards repeatedly on the same question–let’s be honest, most of us have–you’ll start getting nonsense. Or at least, this is how it works for me.

I consider repeating Tarot questions akin to asking a sage for wisdom on the same issue nine times in a row. The first five or six times, you’ll likely get patiently delivered versions of the same message. But eventually, the sage will say something ridiculous to snap you out of your daze. Good! And honestly, I think it disrespectful to overindulge in repetitive grilling. Aren’t you more inclined to share your wisdom with those who try to listen and understand it?

I favor not repeating a question unless conditions have changed or marked time has passed. When I’m not finding the answers I’m seeking, I make note, set the question itself aside, and visualize opening up my chakras with light. I ask for understanding to come to me at the right time, in the right way, and release the question. This creates an empty space for the answer to appear. When I’m willing to let it in this way, I’ve found it does come. Not always on my schedule, but it would be hard to argue, not on the right schedule.

Asking about Third Parties in Tarot Readings

Asking about Absent Third Party in Tarot Readings

Asking about people who aren’t there?

People come to readings looking for guidance and answers–often, involving situations about people important to them, like spouses, significant others, friends or children. One question that comes up frequently is: What’s okay to ask about other people in readings?

There are definitely ethical considerations. As one of my clients puts it, it’s like “peeking into someone else’s windows.” I can’t think of a better analogy. And yet, questions about your loved ones, coworkers or family and your relationships with them is a very legitimate reason to seek guidance! So, how do you know?

Intent and consent are both central to the reading process. Tarot should be a tool of self-empowerment, not for spying or meddling in others’ affairs. If you don’t focus on yourself, you’re missing a golden opportunity for change right there.

My personal rule is that it’s okay to ask about other people only in the context of the questioner’s relationship to the people and situations. If a wife is trying to determine if her husband is cheating, that’s pretty relevant to the wife, don’t you think? But if she’s wondering if her ex-husband’s cheating on his new girlfriend because, well, she just knows the S.O.B. is like that…eh, that’s gossip. Gossip isn’t very spiritual, y’know.

It can get a little sticky sorting it out at times but it’s important enough to be worth the trouble. I know the information I get is all by grace, and believe if I were to abuse and misuse that source, it would close to me. That’s pretty good motivation to stay away from the dark side.

But beyond conviction I’d lose my ability to tune in the same way, I want to feel good about the work I do. Keeping boundaries intact helps me do that.

Email vs. Phone vs. In-Person Readings?

The cards will say what the cards want to say.

People often ask what kind of reading is better or most accurate–I find no difference between communication mediums personally. Different clients have different preferred avenues of communication, sure.

And the “feel” of the communication is different, say between phone or email readings. And a little different still than in-person work. The back and forth interaction has a somewhat different character when it’s real-time versus when it’s in written format, although it’s still present regardless of how the messages are delivered.

But in terms of what I get, no, I see no difference. One works as well as the other. Same person, wearing different clothes.

Have you noticed differences between types of readings?

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.
