Reading tarot cards is an ancient method of attuning to inner wisdom. There is a lot of misinformation about how to use the tarot for spiritual healing, and there is some concern as well because this gift can be misused. Spiritual seekers may find themselves focusing too much on asking the tarot for guidance, rather than using your own natural intuition and decision making abilities.
Like all spiritual tools, reading the tarot needs to happen in a balanced way that enhances, rather than takes you away from your own relationship with God. If approached with respect, humility, and a sacred intention, the tarot can be a useful tool for deepening your own intuition, and for helping you to attune more precisely to the process of receiving spiritual guidance.
Reading tarot cards has always felt natural to me, as I feel an inner connection with the symbolism of the tarot. Reading the tarot was an important part of my spiritual healing practice both in my own process, and in working with my clients. The tarot helped me to open my own intuition. It was a shock to me many years later to discover that there is a great deal of fear, misunderstanding, superstition and prejudice about the tarot. Some believe the tarot to be dangerous as it takes people away from more "real" forms of spirituality.
My own experience has been that the tarot, like any spiritual healing tool is only as helpful as the person using that tool. It can be used as a sacred tool for opening your own intuition and inner guidance, or it can be used to deceive and keep a person from their own inner spiritual truth.
The purity of intention of the person reading the tarot is the key here. If you read the tarot with respect, humility, and with the intention of receiving healing, becoming closer to God and to your own divine truth, then it is likely that the tarot will be a tool for your own spiritual transformation.
Whether you use tarot, or any other spiritual healing tools such as crystals, sacred texts, spiritual healing workshops, or anything else, it is your own consciousness and intention which determines how helpful this will be.
