Tarot Readings – From the past we bring the secrets of the occult. The mystery has been unveiled yet, now it seems as if the magick may be lost, as the darkness clears and the light is shining perfectly onto us. The day breaks and we stand in purpose with the legends of the tarot.
Now, these characters have lived on for many more years than the span of a human’s dreams. They set themselves up in a magical land, where they are, in homes, walled away by castles of forgotten kingdoms and broken hearts. These are enchanted cards, conquering the depths of death and desire, reaching out to our descendants, our Earth, for majesty, forever.
We may believe in fortune, fate, destiny or nothing at all. You see, it really doesn’t even matter anymore. The advice we receive from the spiritual world, is a great blessing but, it can be a curse, if we let it be. We are the artists of our own lives, manifesting energy, in whatever form, we are constructing our spiritual homes.
The meaning of each one is taken into account. We listen to our inner voice and believe that which is in purity of the flame, of the fire, of life and desire. The fantastical part of ourselves that bleeds everywhere from our hearts, spilling like a great disaster, upon a forest of naivety. The shadows part and we are enlightened.
Sometimes, what can really elevate a reading is the time spent before and after to charge a space with energy, making it easier to connect to the other side! There are many ways to do this, some of which I will explain below. Other ways, which are personal to us, may be used instead. After all, the unique bond we have to the other side is special to each one of us and a personal item of a deceased person may be a better connection than general ones!
Keeping gemstones near us, while we are trying to reach the other side is a very good idea. One of the reasons for this is because they vibrate energy at a very spiritual level. Choose stones that are great for psychic development, third eye opening and also divine connection and protection. These are some of my favorite. There is so many more to choose from, but these are ones that I do personally recommend from experience. Each of us is different and may have a varied reaction, instead.
Some great stones to use would be;
Amethyst- is great for protection, healing and opening the crown chakra, which connects us to the higher realms.
Celestine- is an incredibly soothing stone which promotes connection to angelic deities.
Lapis Lazuli- amazing for psychic development, protection and aide.
Moonstone- is a powerful stone to use for visionary rituals and magick.
Turquoise- will help to open communication with spirits and supernatural.
Quartz- crystal clear quartz is a great aide for seeking clarity with psychic intuitions.
Titanium Quartz- this stone is great for manifesting unconditional love within the messages received.
Herbs and incense can help to create a spiritual atmosphere. Because smoke can be toxic in large amounts, I do recommend opening a window, even if it’s in a cold season. A bit of a fresh air rush can only help the energy and health of the room. Open halfway, all the way or maybe a few different ones, slightly opened.
Herbs come in many forms so another great way to use, can be to drink tea. Tea is also a great aide and fortunes can be told, by the knowledgeable, of tea leaves as well. There is an ink called henna also, that can elevate the realms of the room by using it to draw magical symbols on ourselves and magnetize energy.
Black pepper- this is great for causing an instant spiritual intention and connection.
Blue lotus flower- this herb is nice for inducing ancient visions and dreams.
Eucalyptus- this is a good one to use for spiritual healing.
Lavender- the scent of beauty can only bring peace and enchantment.
Lemon balm- this one is great for inspiring positive connections with loved ones who have passed on.
Olive- oil can be rubbed on third eye to create opening. The warmer the oil, the better it is to use effectively.
Passionflower- this herb guards against psychic attacks.
Rosemary- can attract magical beings and protect spiritually.
Sage- This is ideal for elevating physical realm to spiritual one and cleansing negative energies.
A sacred object is one that we possess, that creates an extreme opening of our subconscious. Such items can be; statuettes, flowers, jewelry, holy items and anything that brings us to a deeper level than the physical realms. I recommend placing a sacred object of a deceased person in the room, to better connect directly with the supernatural realm.
To connect with the angelic realms, try placing angel figurines in the surrounding areas with white candles. White candles bring spirituality to the atmosphere. Try mixing and matching different candle combinations with objects, until a great level of satisfaction is reached.
Legends of the Tarot
The stories of old come into our present moments as guardians over the shadows that lurk with us from the past. They are the legends that are passed down from our ancestors, in the hopes of protecting us from these energies. It is an act of love.
Now, where the shadows go is where the truth lies, waiting to be discovered. Do not be afraid of the night that creeps in on us, because underneath the fog, is a world of clarity, waiting to be uncovered. I wish everyone who hears and reads these words aloud in their hearts to have eternal joy. I pray that the light will always find us, no matter how dark it may become.
