Tarot is an ancient tool of divination and it can also be used as a dramatic tool for healing, meditation and shifting deeply engrained patterns. Many years ago, I apprenticed with an amazing Shaman Healer by the name of Hannah. She taught me the deeper meanings of the Tarot. Hannah shared how to use the cards to enhance my meditation skills and access their healing gifts, as well as empower my thoughts, actions and spiritual awareness. It is my honor to share tools with you to help enhance your daily connection to your higher-self and Source.
Meditation with the Tarot
Each major arcana card embodies a special message, energy and focus. Each day, choose a single tarot card from those numbered zero to twenty-one. Shuffle the cards and intuitively select the one that most resonates. After you have chosen the card, light candles or incense for the meditation. Begin to breathe in-and-out slowly as you observe the card. Devote at least fifteen minutes to your meditation. Focus on the meaning of the card and its images. The card will begin to speak and reveal more as you concentrate.
If you are seeking spiritual or emotional healing, choose the card that most resonates with the type of healing you seek to call-in. Then address each issue you have around the concern. This is an easy exercise before going to sleep. Perform your meditation with the chosen card. End your session by journaling about the card’s traits and the messages you received.
For emotional healing, use the High Priestess card (spiritual or therapeutic help). Use the Lovers for relationship guidance. If you simply need rest, work with the Hermit card. For healing to reconnect to one’s true-self and purpose, each of these cards promote healing and raise your awareness: The Magician for help from Spirit. The Star card for dreams and wishes. The Moon card to enhance your own intuition and psychic power.
