In truth, I could probably be writing about a number of different things here, because trusting yourself is the springboard to many things including a career as a writer or other creative endeavor. However, today, I’m talking about the tarot.
When a Reader pulls cards, whether for herself or for clients, there’s a measure of trust involved. For example, when I draw cards, I trust that I am receiving a message from the universe/my higher self/my guides/whomever–basically that the cards aren’t just telling me what I want to hear. (And trust me, with the clue-by-fours I’ve received, I’m not being told just what I want to hear, LOL!). Additionally, I trust in my ability to do this. I trust that I can interpret the cards and take appropriate action. And I trust that everything happens for my higher good.
So there’s trust in the wider universe and higher powers, and there’s trust in myself.
When we hold the tarot cards in our hands, we’re making a sacred pact with ourselves. Yes, we can do this. Yes, we have the ability to convey the information revealed, whether it’s telling ourselves or someone else. And we trust that we’re doing the right thing.
It is very important to have this level of confidence and trust when handling the cards. While we may not have all the answers, a belief that we can convey those answers to whomever needs to hear them is so important. It is true that at times we don’t quite understand what we’re being told. But trusting and knowing that we can work through the information is part of the joy of tarot.
When you touch the cards, you need to trust yourself. And that’s great advice whether you’re a beginner or a pro.
