Starting a Tarot practice can be intimidating at first, but it doesn’t have to be.
Like everything Metaphysical, there are many differing opinions and interpretations about Transpersonal, or Holistic, Tarot out there, and many different ways that people use different types of holistic tools. In Holistic Healing, the tool is not the focus, it is, rather, how we use it. So, in this case, and the way I teach Tarot use, your tarot card deck (or a traditional playing card deck) is the “tool”, or “instrument” that you will be using to assess and understand the state of your mind, body, and spirit.
In my Transpersonal Tarot Reading Course, you learn how to use this tool, your Tarot Deck, as a way to expand your self-awareness, consciousness, spiritual understanding, and receive opportunities for inner guidance and introspection in order to make better life decisions. In addition to this, you learn how to use cards as a tool for personal growth, self-improvement and spiritual development.
Notice here that I have mentioned nothing about being psychic.
How do the cards work?
Transpersonal Tarot works hand in hand with your energy and the Law of Attraction. Tarot Cards work off of our energy, and the energies that we are putting out into the Universe. To explain the Law of Attraction simply, it is the Universal Law that states “Like Attracts Like”. This law is governed by thought energy, our beliefs, emotional feelings and responses, and ultimately the decisions we make and actions that we take within our day to day lives.
The reason why Tarot Cards can be such an empowering and valuable tool is because they offer us an opportunity to examine the energies that we are emanating (which is what each of them represent), and what we will be likely attracting into our lives, either currently or over time, if we continue to put out those same energies, thoughts, emotions and actions.
I view Transpersonal Tarot as a form of Spiritual Coaching, or Counselling, paired with Holistic Self-Healing, and when we use Tarot Cards in a Holistic way, we become more aware of who we are and why we are the way we are (aka. Self-Awareness), we become aware of the bigger picture of the Universe and the beauty of Human Existence (The Story of The Fools Journey), and we gain an increased appreciation and respect for “Free Will” and “cause and effect” (aka. The Law of Attraction). And by doing so, we are addressing all aspects of our being – mind, body, and spirit. Transpersonal Tarot is a journey into The Self, it is your own personal counselling session, if you will, and is a tool that we can use every day, to successfully relieve stress, and live an empowered and mindful life by design.
The term ‘Transpersonal’ simply means “areas of consciousness beyond the limits of personal identity”, and Transpersonal is exactly that, using the Tarot as a tool to address the health, well being and growth of all parts that make up a person – mind, body, and soul.
