Simple Tarot Practices from Pam Christiansen
Tarot is a wonderful tool for self-reflection.
Here are some easy practices that yield valuable experiences.
1. Pick a card with a person on it. Have the intention of embodying that person
throughout your day.
For example, if you pick the Hermit, you may find yourself slowing
down a bit. You may find that your mind is more peaceful, and decisions are not rushed.
If you pick the Fool, this brings a new, more energetic sense of being. Lighthearted and open to new experiences. Play with the images and watch how your life options expand.
2. To enhance your dreams or to inform your waking life, sleep with a tarot card.
Let the card be the last image you see before going to sleep. If you have a question to answer, or a problem to solve you can use the card to give you specific information. Or be open to whatever message the card may have for you. This can be quit amazing.
The first time I did this, I slept with the Hierophant and dreamed of a teacher coming to me feeding me peanuts. Within a week a spiritual teacher came into my life and provided one of the most impactful experiences of my life.
3. Choose a card for the day and as you move about your world, watch for images that are similar in the card and in your world. Watch for similar shapes. Shapes are significant in themselves. Ask yourself what these images have to say to you. This is really fun especially if you have nature-based deck.
Today I think I’ll embody the Chariot and see where it takes me. Happy Tarot Travels!
