Hi I am psychic and about to work for a company doing Angel card readings over the phone, I used to do this face to face and telephone with private readers a while ago, I need the money and therefore have to start it again, the trouble is I have health problems and I can’t get my confidence up to start yet, also do I need to do any protection as I don’t want to get bad spirits involved. Kat.
Wow, Brian, what a beautifully written and well thought out response!! Makes me want to pull out my cards and learn…
Something a lot of people overlook due to a lack of education about Tarot history and symbology is the very nature and intention of Tarot itself. The Tarot is sometimes called a ‘book’ because it intentionally covers every conceivable aspect of life. The thing is, all of these archetypal experiences are happening to you, to some degree, all of the time. So, from a completely non-spiritual point of view, every reading is going to have some degree of accuracy.
I’ve been reading tarot professionally for several years, and have read for free before that for over a decade. I read for spiritually inclined individuals as well as complete atheists! The thing is, Tarot can be a valuable tool either way.
The Spiritual querent can easily accept that the symbols are a lexicon of ‘words’ used by Spirit to convey information from a higher state of consciousness. Spirit doesn’t speak the same way we do; words are, ultimately, extremely limited in terms of communication. In this regard, the intuitive reader who has spent a lot of time not just memorizing cards but finding common factors or ‘agreements’ between cards can give some really amazingly accurate readings, without ever knowing what the question was in the first place. We just read what we see and follow our intuition. It isn’t cold reading – not all of the time, I can’t speak for everyone who uses tarot – and I, and many other readers I’ve known, don’t ask any questions at all. I lay down the cards and then tell the querent the story that they tell me. We learn to trust that this story is relevant to the question, and the deeper that trust becomes, the more relevant that story becomes.
On the other hand, even if you don’t believe in anything divine, spiritual, etc., Tarot is still a valuable creative tool. We tend to have minds a little bit like train tracks – we have ‘thinking habits’, and when we encounter a problem most people (with the exception of the particularly creative ‘out of the box’ thinker) will use the same reasoning processes they are used to using. By utilizing Tarot, we have the opportunity to derail that typical train of reasoning and come up with creative solutions that, absent this intervention, we would not have encountered otherwise. It can help us review a situation taking different factors that are universally present into account.
Although in my experience Tarot can divine the future, I do believe that this is not it’s real purpose and utility. In fact, there’s not a lot of practical use for knowing the future at all – foreknowledge changes the future, universally, because it is impossible to act as if you did not have that knowledge. Instead, the utility of Tarot is in understanding the forces at work in the present, so that we can achieve the future that we want to create. Sometimes these forces are things that we were aware of but didn’t realize the impact they were having; sometimes they are forces we were entirely unaware of. Either way, having this information and using it wisely is like seeing a mechanic when your car makes funny noises – you aren’t sure it will get you from point A to point B, but once you have a clear understanding of what’s making the noise you can make the necessary adjustments (like getting it fixed in this allegory) to ensure that you get to point B.
Over the phone, face to face, over chat or e-mail doesn’t or shouldn’t matter. My own readings are accurate regardless, and that actually surprised me the first few times I tried reading over e-mail especially. The thing is, most querents think about the reading as “The tarot reader uses their insight to reveal something…” placing a lot of emphasis on the ability and integrity of the reader themselves. Which is fine – but the reader is having a different experience. To the reader, they just happen to be there as an interpreter between a higher power and the querent. That higher power is present everywhere, knows who is asking the question, and what information to convey.
Reading tarot with an earnest intention to offer guidance, and a sincere effort to understand the symbols, will undoubtedly develop intuitive abilities in the practitioner. I have seen it happen to skeptics as well as individuals who already believed in psychic ability to begin with. I think this is because the Tarot is composed of archetypes that constitute the language of the unconscious mind, and as we work with them we gain a more conscious and working access to the deeper realms of the mind, the more sublime level of consciousness where intuition functions unhampered by our bias and conditioning. So although there are many insincere readers, most readers with integrity likely have a well developed intuitive ability as well, at least in my experience.
I do tarot over the internet and I beleive it is possible. Tarot readers use devination to read the cards. Quantum physics, spritual leaders and common people alike have demonstrated over many centuries the posibilities and even evidence of unexplainable phenomena. We do not have to know each other or have met each other to be able to step into or tap into energy that we are all connected by. We accept common occurances of insight and telepathy (for example, when we are thinking of someone and they call or arrive at your door step) as coincedence. It isn’t, it is connectedness. I have just started a blog that is offering the first person to comment a free one question reading. Maybe you should give it ago and if you then beleive you can get a proper one from my site.
The most important thing is some people are genuinely practiced or able to use thier psychic gift, but thier are alot of people just making money out of it online. It is hard to find a genuine one but they are out there. Good luck. oh my blog is http://sinceretarot.wordpress.com/
I’ve read tarot readings for people in person, over the phone and over the internet (through IMs) many times. For me, the best thing possible for the most accurate reading (regardless of where the querent or the reader are located) is to get to know the person asking for the reading. Once you establish a connection you can pick up on their energy from anywhere.
Things that I do to get to know my client over distance:
1. Get their full name
2. Date of Birth and Zodiac sign
3. Present location
4. Hometown, place of childhood
5. Level of education
6. Current job
7. (Most important) Why they want a reading
Usually after having a conversation where I can get all this info I can read over an IM or the phone.
For the most part my readings are really accurate but it’s important to note that Tarot aren’t always 100 percent accurate. You can do anything to change the course of your future. However, most of the people I’ve read for over the phone or the internet were very pleased with their readings and have contacted again to let me know how their situations were resolved.
I would like to warn you against psychic hotlines though. I read an article about the rules and guidelines companies make their phone psychics follow and they are all counter-intuitive to accurate tarot readings.
