This was written specially for a protege who had felt "out of sorts", depressed and exhausted every time she does a couple of Tarot readings.
Now that you have created a protective shroud around your sacred space, begin shuffling your cards and feel it's energy within your hands. Stay connected with that energy and whisper and intent under your breath that the Universe may guide you through the use of these cards, with the messages you or your querants need to hear at that moment. This practice of grounding is particularly necessary if like me, you are doing multiple Tarot readings in a day. It helps protect you and prevent your energy from getting drained by any residual negative energy that your querant might leave you with during a reading. If you are reading for yourself, it is even more important to practice grounding so that you can maintain a semblance of objectivity to provide yourself with the right advice.
Different metaphysical practitioners practice grounding in many different ways. A former Tarot teacher practices grounding by walking around her garden barefooted before heading back into her home to do her Tarot reading. In due time, you will find your own unique way to ground yourself as part of your standard operational procedure to support your Tarot reading efforts. So go ahead and take that time to explore the different ways of grounding yourself and stick to one that you feel most comfortable with.
May your Tarot cards provide you with a full deck of possibilities throughout your day.
