Remember the Lotus

Whenever you should doubt your self-worth, remember the lotus flower.  Even though it plunges to life from beneath the mud, it does not allow the dirt that surrounds it to affect its growth or beauty.  Suzy Kassem. The lotus flower is considered a sacred symbol.  The Lotus symbolizes purity, beauty, majesty, grace, fertility, knowledge and serenity.  The lotus will fluorish in murky waters, pushing through mud and mire.  The petals break through and reach toward the sun, while the leaves stay afloat as they shine in the light.

Symbolically, lotus petals can be found in the chakra symbols.  Each chakra has a specific number of petals, representing ascending vibrational frequencies.  The state of enlightenment is represented by the thousand-petal lotus.

Tarot and Intuition

Basics of Tarot Reading

You need not be psychic to use Tarot cards. You do need, however, to be in tune with your intuition. Our intuitions are our natural ability to instinctively sense things in the world around us.

Intuition has nothing to do with our cognitive abilities.  It is a gut feeling we get regardless of the logistics of a particular situation.  Intuition lets us know when something is wrong, when all appears to right. For example, there are times when we may met someone who appears wonderful to everyone but we still may feel something is not right with that person. We may not be able to put our finger on it but we know something isn't quite as it should be.  That is our intuition warning us.  What happens in a case like this is that, although we will act friendly outwardly, inwardly we are guarded because of the feeling we have on a gut level.

Being psychic now is a little different.  Psychic ability is one in which one's senses go beyond the normal range of perception, and is considered by most to be a gift.  People who are considered psychic may actually have a one or more specific types of gifts.  Some of the ways these psychic gifts manifest is seeing beyond the normal vision, hearing beyond normal hearing and some can channel into the spiritual realm.  These are not the only types of psychic gifts, these are some of the more obvious forms it takes.  Furthermore, just like intuition, a person who is psychic can innately use their gift without having to think about it consciously.

To be an effective tarot reader, one does not have to be psychic per se but should be in tuned to their intuition.  What does happen, however, the more we use our intuition in regards to interpreting the tarot the stronger it becomes.  It's like anything else . . . the more you do something, like using your intuition in this case, the better you become. Tarot cards are tools with which to focus our intuitive senses on.  We also use our intuition to focusing on the person being read to get an intuitive picture of what is going on in that person's life.

Some people are naturally intuitive and even psychic while others have to work a little harder to get the same sense of whats going on.  When you buy a box of tarot cards they are not “magic” in and of themselves.  However, it is the reader's energy that is imparted into the cards that makes them effective for the reader.  The reader's connection to the symbolism on the cards is what creates the magic.  It is the symbolism that opens the reader's intuition in relation to the card.  Each picture also creates a feeling in the person being read that is in turn interpreted based upon the reader's intuition and is then applied to the reading.
