Distance Tarot readings are powerful and insightful, regardless of where you sit when the Tarot reading is performed-divination does not call for you to be present in order to receive an accurate reading. However, before you purchase a reading, there's some things you need to know.
First, when you schedule your reading it is very important that you're in a calm state of mind. I understand that often when a client purchases a reading it is due to a state of confusion or worry. However, when you decide to trust in my method of seeking out the answers, I do ask that you attempt to ground and center, as your chaotic emotions and thoughts CAN affect your reading with me. I also ask that all clients be prepared with any specific questions they may wish to ask, and avoid limiting YES or NO questions, as these sorts of questions do not assist YOU in discovering the energy that may be causing you troubles or holding you back. Be positive and confident that the cards will guide you!
To ask open-ended questions, avoid starting the question with Will…, When… and Should…, and instead ask What…, How… and Why. It's important for me to understand the heart-issue of what you're seeking. Here's some examples of some very potent questions:
What is coming into my conscious awareness about _______?
How can I discover my ______?
What is my soul’s purpose? / How am I presently living in alignment with my soul’s purpose? / What inner work do I need to do to be in alignment with my soul’s purpose?
What resources are available to me that will help me to ________?
What will bring me closer to _______?
What may stand in the way of me fulfilling _______ and how can I overcome this?
Every Tarot Reader has a set of ethics...as do I. Below are some things I CANNOT do for a querent. I cannot provide a reading for someone you do not have a direct relationship with. I cannot share reading results with anyone, whether you are related, etc. I maintain strict confidentiality with all clients. There are some exceptions to client confidentiality, however. This includes situations where the client intends to harm themselves or others, or where the client has committed a significant crime such as murder or rape. Under these circumstances, I am obligated to report to the relevant authorities. I hope, though, to never be placed in this position.
I will not hide "negative" messages received from my deck, but I will always treat every client with the utmost care, compassion, and respect. I cannot provide you with my own personal opinions on what you should or should not do. As a Reader, I'm simply a non-judgmental, objective messenger who seeks to assist you in hearing YOUR OWN inner guides and empower you to clearly see the options before you and make your own decisions. I cannot provide you with legal advice, or medical advice that extends beyond my field of expertise as an Herbalist. As your Reader, I am but a helping hand and a guide, and it is up to YOU to develop a trust in your intuition and make the choices that you feel are right for you. If a client seeks deeper advising, a spiritual advising package will be offered to the client. Only in this working relationship can any intensive advising be offered.
I will not provide information regarding when you or another will die. This is my strictest boundary, and even if the cards reveal anything of this nature, I will not impart this information. Ever.
Finally, here's some tips on how you should prepare for your reading with me:
1. Ground and Center yourself
2. Meditate on the question(s) you seek the answers to.
3. Communicate with any Higher Power/Deities you wish to aid in the reading process
4. Let go of the need to control what answers you receive. Maintain an open mind and release your worry/situation into a trust in what the deck will reveal.
Please allow up to 24 hours to receive your reading results, especially if you have purchased a more complex spread. While in some instances results can be emailed in no later than an hour or two, it is important that you are aware that readings are never rushed and results are poured over thoroughly before being shared.
