As I grew older, this became a pattern. I could tell it was something more than simple stories. People would listen, sometimes, and be surprised that I could read their emotions without knowing them. It all came together when I purchased my first deck of Tarot cards. When I laid them out to read for my friends, the emotional nudges would show me which images had a message for them. I could then look down the path of their lives and see what they should avoid or embrace.
All of this comes down to finding the quiet place within you and using that to listen to your heart, mind and body. If you feel you need it, find something to help you to focus. It’s the images on the Tarot that work best for me. For you, it might be a crystal, the flame in a candle, or the shadows in a scrying mirror. Once you find the level of focus that’s right for you, you’ll be able to feel, hear or see the messages that you’re meant to receive. Then you can share this with others in your own unique way. It will be an amazing experience when you first connect and feel the absolute rightness of the moment.
