Once you have found a reader and have begun your journey to enlightenment, ascension or just plain self improvement you will be confronted by a few basic concepts. You will often be told to “take what resonates”. This means that if a reading is meant for you then it will “resonate” in your Spirit. In other words you can feel that it is speaking to you and that the words have application to your life. Since readers are speaking to potentially thousands of listeners, most readings have material to which an individual can relate and some to which they cannot. This is why you should have more than one reader in order to receive confirmation of a message’s relevance. You can also get confirmation by getting readings of your sun, moon and ascending signs.
Determining the “resonance” of a reading requires that you use your Intuition, or your Spirit’s senses. The fact that you are even listening to a tarot reading suggests that you are an Intuitive person. Taking the Myers-Briggs test will tell you whether or not you have an Intuitive type personality. If you are Intuitive, a Feeler, a Perceiver, or a combination of these types then you are a Highly Sensitive Person (HSP) and possibly an Empath. HSP’s and Empaths have unique journeys through life and often come to a crisis point before they discover that they are more aware of spiritual matters than the average person and that by compromising to society’s standards they have actually compromised themselves. These types of individuals usually end up with labels such as ADD, Co-dependency, Bipolar and Anxiety Disorder, PTSD and many more. They are often accompanied by addictions, dysfunctional relationships and lack of success in the work arena. It is not because there is something “wrong” with them; rather, it is because they have a different set of priorities and values and have been conditioned by their environment to see them as peculiar or as a “disorder”.
For some odd reason, HSP’s and Empaths have difficulty loving themselves. Perhaps it is because they have interpreted the reactions of others’ to their quirky and “different” behavior as rejection, (which in some cases it was). What it boils down to is a lack of confidence and self doubt which is based on the conditioning of society and valuing the thoughts and opinions of others more highly than your own. That has to stop immediately. You need to have a couple of readers in your repertoire who are always positive and encouraging. Some readers seem to forget that they are speaking to Empaths and can be rather brutal with the Truth at times. Make sure you have a couple who can always bring you back to “center”.
Never allow yourself to be pushed, manipulated or guilt-driven by a reading. You are a sovereign entity with free will and are not to be forced into anything. God, The Divine, Source, The Universe will never over-ride your free will. However, The Universe wants you to understand that you are a Divine entity and that Positive Energy is what brings you to your True Self. Therefore, Surrender to Positive Principles and Energy is in your own best interests. Negative thoughts, patterns and beliefs are what is causing your present discomfort.
A portion of your difficulties in the past have been created by your hyper-sensitivity. Your hyper-sensitivity has created low self confidence and self doubt, which in turn have invited lack of success, negative emotions and other negative energies. You are now beginning the process of unraveling and establishing new patterns. Pack yourself a lunch, it might take a minute!
