Don’t Think Too Deeply About the Tarot Cards

It’s just archetypal energy

Everything is a manifestation of consciousness. Right?

So, when we ask the tarot cards for answers, the cards themselves are creations of quantum energy — physical manifestations of something nonphysical. Is it surprising that cards might tell us something that we would like to know? Don’t think too deeply about them. They aren’t real. No more real than you are!

And there’s a good chance that your consciousness as well as the energies in all consciousness can affect the way the cards come out.

When I read tarot for myself or others, I ask my spirit guides to manifest the cards that best answer my questions. They never fail me. Since the cards can be “randomly” shuffled in a way that conceals their configuration from me and any viewers, the spiritual energies around me may have their way with them. The card that falls out or the card on the top of the deck can be whatever the universal consciousness wants it to be. In addition, spiritual energies can guide my hands to extract the “right” cards.

Cards can give us messages using archetypal energies, and your intuition needs to take them the rest of the way. At least, that’s how I read them. I ask my guides for answers and hear the words in my mind as I am looking at the cards. They’re just signposts. They’re here to tell you a story, and the same card can have wildly different stories when you see it come out on different occasions.

Mediumship means that we communicate with spiritual energies, and there are a number of ways to do so. Tarot card readings, for me, is a form of mediumship. If you let them, the cards will be messages from your guides and angels who want to let you know what’s really going on and remind you that everything happens for a reason.
