In the Twenty Five years I have worked a Psychic Reader there have been many, many changes .. most seem to benefit corporations, the curious, and those who need pocket money. Readers are available on line, by phone, by email, and in person. How a reading is delivered is not the concern of this post.
What does concern me is this, many of the people selling readings are not psychic. Many can’t see the future. They dodge this fact by describing themselves with very flowery terms. Some of the descriptions are interesting, some humble, some just outrageous to me.
We, the seers, were most all born as seers. We did not have the option to stop knowing what was going to happen next. We could not help hearing people think. We all had to learn to live with that ability. Spirits of the dead, and other kinds of spirits came to us. We learned to live with their presence.
Know that in some cultures we are treasured. We are consulted before many major decisions are made. Our insights are valued and weighed, and questioned – but they are requested to empower the seeker. In some cultures, readers, oracles, psychics, seers are trusted to help others find peace with the hardships of life.
We are not a commodity. We are not something to sample. I had a client recently to said she loved to get readings. I told her most people hired me to see the future…. which is and has been true. She was surprised, and then I was surprised! We had a good moment about that, and then we had a good session.
I read the Akashic Record. I am able, for what ever reason, to access that place where everything is happening all at once and many futures are possible. Please know, the World is Constantly Coming. This is a very important concept to grasp, especially if you choose to consult a psychic to see the future.
This world is interdependent. Things really don’t just “happen”. Your life is a consequence of many smaller decisions that, when combined with the decisions of others, work to create the life we live now. Although it may seem that “things happen”, there really are no accidents.
The cards don’t tell you that. I hear people asking to see what the cards say today. They don’t say anything. They can reflect, and reveal and clarify……. but to really have the sacred experience of crossing the veil to see, there must be a question. You must know what you want to know.
I may start doing “Pulse” readings again as it seems people are needing someone to help them see what is happening to them. (Most all my clients, when we talk about it for a moment, quickly realize that they do know what is going on. They many not know what to do about it, but that becomes the ground for the question.)
The cards can reveal things, in the hands of someone who understands what they are looking at. When I say this I don’t mean that they get a particular feeling from looking at an image, I mean that reader understands the why of interpretation and the interdependence of the cards in a spread.
What seems to be happening is this. The “Establishment” or the “Patriarchy” needs to strip a powerful tool of it’s power and dilute it, sprinkle glitter on it, offer your Weekly Tarot Reading in a news feed! What better way to minimize a sacred act that to have it be free! One size fits all!
People are getting readings from co-workers, from “readers” who have to consult the book – really – consult the book while they are giving a reading to a customer. I understand there are not many full time Psychics… but those of us who are still working, are not helped by this rush of readers.
I have talked to people who believe they can “get a reading” on YouTube! This reader “Makes sense to me.” Or “I like what she has to say”. “Some of the things she says really fit my life”. Well……. of course. Readings given “in general’ will probably have something for everyone.
It’s hard for me to see people waving Tarot cards around, showing them off, laughing and talking about one thing or another. The profit is there, of course. One can “Monetize” their YouTube channel. However, when we slept under the stars, and the stream was our music, and the songs of birds announced the morning, we knew better than to play with the sacred.
I understand that we need to be amazed. I understand that this plastic world holds little hope of true “magic”, but it’s here. Seers and oracles are here. Most of us who have lasted a decade or two have “rules” of conduct we observe, and gentle guidelines for our clients so they can have the best experience possible.
While it’s true that many psychics do not use tools, some do. When I began to study occult arts some 50 years ago, there was a culture of respect for the Book of Tarot. There were some tried and true decks and most of those were accurate and based on sacred teachings. A few were “off” a bit, but they were used as stepping stones to the Akashic.
Today we have all sorts of toy decks. They are pretty, they are new, they are witchy, or dark, or for cat lovers. I have seen baseball tarot! Tarot decks are being created and sold as decorations to be collected. The images are for the “intuitives” to get a feeling about a message for the seeker. The foundations are a joke.
There are all kinds of gimmick readings you can buy now. They have cute names. All sorts of new terms have cropped up to keep you interested and coming back for more. “Twin Flame” readings are popular. Twin Flame is pretty new term designed to hook your attention and keep you coming back to find yours. As well, there are all kinds of curses and spells you can buy.
These kinds of things are an abuse and a perversion of a still powerful art. What those with a “Learn to Read Tarot” book don’t understand is that everything rests on the point of intention. I think the people who are doing trick readings are probably safe simply because they cannot cross the threshold. (I hope that is true.)
What they are also doing is making a once vital, powerful and sacred act a silly game. I hate to see that. I suppose I am writing to let off a little steam. I am also hoping you who read this will know that there is a path beyond the everyday, and there are people here who can help you find yours, and can help you learn to walk it well.
The true seers do not foster dependence. They don’t frighten or confuse. The charge enough to pay the rent, and maybe to buy a dinner out from time to time. A good reader has many clients, so no need to make his or her money on just one or two.
I have always found it difficult to charge much….. but recently I did I bit of math and realized my services are more valuable that a family dinner at fast food restaurant. I offer readings in blocks of time. Everyone can afford the short one, of course a mani-pedi may have to wait a week.
Finally I have an elegant office down town for those who do understand that a lot more can happen that just looking at cards. To experience the crossing with your physical body is a powerful moment. I have a safe place for us to share that. I am taking in person appointments. I do request your call to to book that session. I offer in person Psychic Readings with Tarot Monday, Wednesday and Friday at the Blackstone Building, down town Jacksonville, Florida.
Please allow your self the opportunity to experience Tarot as it has been used for centuries. Please, allow yourself to make your dreams come true.
