Your State of Being and Reading the Tаrоt

The tаrоt can be a difficult language to learn and an even more difficult language to master if you don't understand how your state of being can affect your tаrоt readings. Now just to be clear state of being refers to the combination of the aspects of who you are and how they are resting within you in the now. Your personal state of being then is the combination of your energetic, physical, and psychological aspects in a particular moment and can greatly influence your success at reading the tаrоt and even learning the tarot. I'm sure most of you are aware that some days are just off days for you, maybe you're frustrated, or slept poorly, or maybe your energy is chaotic. On the other hand you can improve your tаrоt readings by monitoring your state of being and improving it via simple exercises, the following is one such exercise that uses the chakras to clear negativity from your energetic system and is descended from a simple yogic practice:

Now, stand with your feet shoulder width apart and take a deep breath. The first thing you're going to want to do is check in with your current state of being, but instead of trying to change anything simply rest in this position and let your awareness accept whatever you may be sensing or feeling. As you look within begin to relax, find the muscles in your body that hold the most tension and ask them to release and relax, breathe into them.

Once you begin to feel a bit more aligned it's time to move onto the next step. Begin to feel the motions of your chakras as they lie against the spine and tap into these physical energy centers. Continue to breathe, now take a deep breath in and in one motion raise your arms over your head while focusing on balancing and clearing the base chakra at the base of the spine, then return your hands to your sides as you exhale. Then repeat this motion with the intent of balancing and clearing the navel chakra, then with the chakra at the solar plexus. Breathe deeply into each center as your move from the solar plexus to the heart, then the throat, the third eye, and finally finishing with the seventh repetition of this movement at the crown chakra. As you do this pay attention to any sensations you get in your body as you clear your energy centers. This practice only takes a few moments and is easily done before a tаrоt reading and can greatly improve your accuracy and your enjoyment of it. Good luck.
