Tarot Tip Tuesdays - Tune Out Skepticism And Tune Into Self

Whether you are new to Tarot and in the throes of building a connection with your Tarot cards or an advanced Tarot reader diligently honing your Tarot reading skills, I am putting out a Tarot tip a week to help you to consistently make Tarot a part of your everyday life.

So here goes your Tarot Tip for this Tuesday:

You have learnt to read the Tarot cards for awhile and have been excitedly practising your readings on others.  Some are grateful for your skills, others will view it with curiosity and attempt to "try you out", and there are even more out there who think you will end up a looney old lady living alone in a nursing home, talking to your Tarot cards. 

Yes.  Expect skepticism from others.  When I started out, I had questions like "Where did you park your broom?", "Is it black magic?" or "What science is this?"  Just remember  that skepticism is often a result of lack of understanding of what you do.  it happens in every career choice one might make and not necessarily confined to the experience of a Tarot reader.  So remember that when you are confronted by questions like these, just explain it with the genuine intent to educate them.  Be opened about your philosophy about Tarot.  Help them understand that it is not a fortune-telling tool, but a tool that helps provide guidance and options to help them make their own decisions.  If they are opened to the idea,  give them a mini reading to let them experience your style. 

What is worse than facing skepticism from others, would probably be facing skepticism from within you.   Sometimes, your rational mind will come in the way of your intuition.  Remember that a healthy dose of skepticism is really okay.  As you spend more time practicing your readings, you will be more confident with your skills.  All you will need is a good mix of consistent practice and the ability to tune out the noises of scepticism from others and yourself, to better tune into yourself. 

May your Tarot cards provide you with a full deck of possibilities throughout your day.
