Some Important Tips about Giving Tarot Readings
The great thing about doing tarot readings for others is that it not only helps you to advance your skills and intuition as a tarot reader, but it also enables you to connect with others on spiritual and personal levels. The more you read for other individuals, the more you will advance your abilities as a tarot reader. Of course, as you continue to work with the cards you will begin to gain a deeper understanding of their meanings. If you are uncertain about your skills or are just usually a bit shy when first meeting new people, doing tarot readings for others may help to work through any reserves and boost your confidence.
If you are just starting, you might want to read for individuals who tend to be open minded. This usually helps you as they like to get involved with the reading. They are not out there to prove you wrong or judge you on your abilities. Evolving confidence is one of the first elements required to become a good tarot reader. Additionally, you want to be sure that you are not just wasting your time and energy. Amazingly, it does take a specific amount of energy to do a tarot reading. Negative individuals can challenge your confidence and cause you to question your own psychic intuition.
Another imperative variable for performing tarot readings on other people is to have some sensitivity to how they may react. A few people might be extremely enthusiastic while others might be very wary throughout their tarot reading. As a tarot reader you must be ready for other individual’s reactions. If anyone is fearful, you must be sensitive as to how you translate the meaning of the tarot cards. Seeing cards such as the Death card or Devil card can be rather frightening to many people. I frequently find it useful to tell people about their significances. In several cases, I will essentially walk an individual through the whole reading by explaining my meanings for each card.
In several cases, people might not react at all to the reading. This might cause you to feel uneasy about your own abilities as a tarot reader. When this happens, I find that I need to let the cards themselves perform their job. If I think that someone is holding back their reactions purposely as a means of testing my skill level, than I often just allow them to draw their own conclusions as to my reading skills. I try to check to see that I am not just trying to “prove” myself to them. This can actually affect the reading.
Occasionally it is possible to read for somebody that you simply can’t connect to. Your energies, in other words, just might not be as in sink together as efficiently as it might be with some others. This is fine. Most often, even the person with the most skepticism typically will get something from it. This even happens to the best psychics, so don't allow this to damper your own self-confidence.
When you do a reading that was not as effective as you wanted it to be, you must let go of any negative evaluations that you might have about yourself. Not all tarot readings are going to be an exceptional experience. Learning how to perform tarot readings is a learning process and requires you to accept your own skill level without any judgment.
