Hey there Pretty Blossoms, and Happy Monday!
This week and next week, we will be diving deep into the beautiful and fascinating subject of Holistic Tarot!
Before we begin, I would like to take a few minutes to explain what Holistic Tarot is, and what it is not. 🙂
What Holistic Tarot Is
Like everything Metaphysical, there are many flavors our there, interpretations, and many different ways that people use different types of holistic tools. 🙂
In holistic healing, the tool is not the focus. How we use it is. In this case, a tarot card deck (or a traditional playing card deck) is the tool we will be using. We will be learning how to use this tool as a way to expand our self awareness, consciousness, receive opportunities for inner guidance and introspection in order to make better decisions, and how to use cards as a tool for personal growth, self improvement and spiritual development. 🙂 *Notice here that I mentioned nothing about being psychic. 😉
Holistic Tarot works had in hand with 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 encourage us 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 Holistic Tarot as a form of Spiritual Counseling, paired with Holistic Self-Healing. 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 (Self Awareness), we become aware of the bigger picture of the Universe and the beauty of Human Existence (The Fools Journey), and we gain an increased appreciation and respect for “free will” and “cause and effect” (The Law of Attraction).
Holistic Tarot is a journey into The Self (your own personal counseling session), and is a tool that we can use every day, to successfully relieve stress, and live a life by design.
What Holistic Tarot Is Not
Holistic Tarot is not Fortune Telling.
Please feel free to develop your own opinion on this topic, but as far as my workshops and courses are concerned, the practice of fortune telling is not what is taught in the material you will receive, or within the card counseling sessions that I teach and provide.
What to Expect From a Holistic Tarot “Reading”
Since Holistic Tarot is so different from Fortune Telling, I like to call Holistic “Tarot Readings”, “Card Counseling Sessions” instead, as a way to separate the two.
During a Holistic Tarot “Card Counseling Session”, you are either conduction a session for yourself, or for another person. With Holistic Tarot, we have a very important responsibly to ourselves and our clients. It is not just our job to interpret the cards, but we must also communicate with the person receiving the counseling session, and allow them to take part in interpreting the cards, including how they could represent different areas, people or events in their lives. Nothing is set in stone here, and it is very valuable to the client to have the opportunity to explore their own inner self, emotions, and ideas throughout the session you are providing them with.
Another layer to my method of teaching and how I use Holistic Tarot is to not only pull and interprest cards, but also empower clients with additional holistic tools that they can use to improve their health, wellness, and life as a whole. Once their card counseling session is complete, they are then given a “plan of action” to take home with them, including ideas for tools that they can use to aid them in self healing, grounded decision making, and improved relationships and life skills. These tools include healing crystals, essential oils and personal development books. More on this later! 😉
Interested in Reading for Others?
Our job as Blossoms United Holistic Tarot Card Counselors is to empower those who we interpret for and teach. Anyone can be a Tarot Reader, but it takes a special, educated, and passionate person to be part of Blossoms United. No person should ever leave your table feeling fearful, saddened, or worried. They should feel informed, and empowered knowing that they have the power to design their own lives, and live the life they want to live, along with the know how! 🙂
If you are interested in receiving your Holistic Tarot Reader Certification, I will be offering this as a course later on.
For the next two weeks however, we will be concentrating on reading for ourselves, and using The Tarot as a personal tool for Self Healing, Introspection and Personal Empowerment. 🙂 After all, you can not be of value to others, if you do not first pour value into yourself. Let’s begin!
See you in the next post! 🙂
