When I tell people that I read Tarot cards, I get asked A LOT of questions. It can be a bit of a confusing thing if you aren't really familiar with the cards or the spiritual side of them. One common question is, “What are Tarot cards and how do they actually work?”
Now, the answer to that question may differ, depending on who you ask and how they personally connect with the Tarot cards. That's because Tarot is simply a tool, and as with all kinds of tools, how you use it is completely up to you.
Since you've found your way here, I want to give you my version of how I believe the Tarot works and how you can use it to gain instant access to your intuition and your inner source of power and wisdom.
Tarot Cards offer a glance into what's happening just below the surface of your conscious thoughts. While they can give some insight into your future, think of it as advice that empowers you to best handle or even change what happens rather than a concrete blueprint of your future. A tarot reading is like talking to a friend that isn't afraid to give you no-nonsense advice, and you still have free will and control over how you react to any situation.
It’s as if the Tarot cards create an instant connection to our subconscious minds so we can access the inner wisdom of our Higher Self. And from there we can bring it into our conscious awareness where we can take action.
Some may say that Tarot cards are simply ink on paper. However, what I have discovered from reading the Tarot cards is this:
Tarot is the storybook of our life, the mirror to our soul, and the key to our inner wisdom.
Every spiritual lesson we meet in our lives can be found in the seventy-eight Tarot cards. And when we consult the Tarot, we’ll get shown the exact lessons we need to learn and master to live an inspired life. It’s like holding up a mirror to yourself so that you can access your subconscious mind. Tarot allows us to tap into the wisdom and answers that live in us all.
So, How Exactly Do Tarot Cards Work?
While many people believe that Tarot will tell you the future, making predictions are not really what Tarot cards are about.
When it comes to Tarot, fortune-telling is out, and intuition is in, especially if you want to create your ideal future and manifest your goals.
The most powerful way to read the Tarot is to use the cards to access your intuition and your inner wisdom. The imagery in the cards give you instant access to your subconscious mind and your intuition. And from this place of inner power and wisdom, you can discover how to make positive changes now so you can manifest your goals and your dreams in the future.
You may already consciously know the message or insight you receive in a Tarot reading, in which case, the reading can be a heartening confirmation of what you already know. Or, you might be completely unaware of the message until you see it reflected in the cards, in which case you are now empowered to take action based on your new awareness.
