As I moved from my 30’s to my 40’s I noticed a specific pattern of well, patterns. I did the same thing most days and reached for the same vices repeatedly-all contributed to disengaging from my life. I spent too much time in a habitual rut and it was only through returning to my tarot practice six years ago that I recognized how much of my time was spent “sleepwalking” through my days.
Although I have used tarot for over 20 years, it was when I took the deep dive into the cards to form a relationship with each one and what I realized is that every single card illuminates a different aspect of our lives. Every card! That was 78 ways that I was potentially ignoring my needs, desires, and fears. I became focused on putting together a system for learning the cards that did not feel like a grind. I am proud to share this system through Tarot Essentials, my signature Tarot course.
Tara Brach says:
“Perhaps the biggest tragedy of our lives is that freedom is possible, yet we can pass our years trapped in the same old patterns…We may want to love other people without holding back, to feel authentic, to breathe in the beauty around us, to dance and sing. Yet each day we listen to inner voices that keep our life small.”
― Tara Brach
I began to deepen my practice and use tarot full-time for healing and self-reflection. I studied each of the cards in order, sought out the recognized leaders in the tarot world and committed myself to a tarot practice in the hopes that I could return home to myself and my inner knowing.
Now I find myself:
• 13 years into my committed partnership and despite everything we have been through, we are more connected than ever.
• Using tarot to check in with myself regularly, before I burn out.
• Making strong decisions based on deep inner-knowing and self-trust.
• Working from a place of service teaching something that I love!
Finding ways to demystify tarot and learn the meanings without being overwhelmed is what led me to create my signature course, Tarot Essentials. I truly believe that tarot is for everyone! Some readers bring beautiful psychic gifts to their tarot practice but it is unnecessary to have anything other than curiosity and a desire to work with the cards. I often find that the people who have no experience with tarot tend to have the most profound observations. Young people, in particular, who do not doubt themselves often hit the nail on the head as far as traditional meanings go.
When we learn to use tarot to self-reflect, rather than as a predictive tool, we open up a new line of communication within ourselves that can heal our relationships with ourselves and others. We can navigate blind spots in the privacy of our own sacred space, and we can find a way to contribute more positively to the world.
It never fails to amaze me to learn what a deck of cards can unlock in all of us.
Until our paths cross again…
