With over 500 likes on Facebook and approaching 2000 downloads, I am very pleased that my book ‘How To Read Tarot With Confidence’ has been embraced by those who take tarot reading seriously.
As a troubled young woman I remember feeling the need for some self-evaluation, yet I was aware of my vulnerability and the despair that I harbored. I found it difficult to share my thoughts and feelings, let alone work out what the hell my life was all about. I could trust nobody, but had the opportunity to have a tarot reading at the Glastonbury Festival with a lady on her bus.
I made her work very hard as I could not communicate properly. I was a mess, but the attention that this stranger gave to me, just sitting reading my cards, trying to gain a
perspective on my crazy life – well it was therapeutic. Even though I could not tell straight away that healing had begun, it certainly had.
I was in the very first stages of maturity, needing to develop my self-awareness. I had a lot going on. Things were so chaotic that I could only focus on a few aspects of my life and decide how to deal with them. At this stage I think only three suggestions/observations came through to me from that reading. But that was the start, they were embraced by my consciousness. Three little things – and one of those was the attitude of the reader herself – not what she actually said.
I would never see this lady again, and I was so wrapped up with my issues I probably didn’t even thank her properly. But I have faith that as a wise woman she was happy to give me the strength I needed to work the next part of myself out, at my own pace, building on the little I had been able to take in.
Everyone is different – some people make great leaps forward with big realizations. I think I am more typical though. I have trudged, and dodged and misunderstood, been selfish, then too eager to please. It seems that every lesson was learned the hard way and I have to accept my failures as well as my successes.
I still feel as if my journey is incomplete, but I like to think that I can pass on the attitude that the wise lady gave to me. I studied the tarot and was unafraid to live my life with its ups and downs, the only way to gain genuine realizations.
I think the book harnesses the confidence I eventually won for myself and I hope that it has a positive influence on those who read it.
I made the book a free download in recognition that shared positive energy will multiply. All I can hope for is that it will do some good in the world.
