Energy Essences - Tarot
These are the newest editions to our Soul Energy range. I believe that more
than just an oracle, the Tarot is a blueprint by which the Soul navigates
through the cosmos. At one time or another, each of us has played the role
of the "Divine Fool" through taking a risk that meant the world on a soul
level. Each of us has been a "Devil" at times, or a reclusive, reflective
"Hermit". As you examine each card of the Major Arcana, you will find that
each expresses different roles we play in our lives. Many of us have come to
think of these roles as surface experiences we go through in our day to day
lives. Rarely does it seem that anyone is truly encouraged to try and
understand what these roles mean on a much deeper level. For many, the Tarot
has been regulated to the position of something that the psychic who lives
down the street uses to determine possible future events. While indeed the
Tarot can be used this way and with proper training on the part of the
person doing the reading can be highly effective, the Tarot is so much more.
Approached from a Soul level, each card can help us better understand who we
are as spiritual beings having a human experience.
I believe the Tarot was intended to help each of us come into our own power
through an understanding of the myriad number of paths we can choose to walk
during a given lifetime. I also believe that for each of us, there is one
card of the major arcana that expresses our true soul potential and purpose.
This is not to say that the other cards do not have relevance or meaning, as
indeed they do! They can show us how we may best navigate the energies of
our primary soul card, the archetype that we have come into this lifetime to
express, when viewed from the perspective of the primary card. For example,
someone having the Hermit as a primary soul card may find that by better
understanding the energies of the Death card, they can begin to release all
those things in their life that do not support their ability to turn inward
and reflect, and then reflecting their wisdom and knowledge back into the
world for others to share. Someone who has The Lovers as a primary soul card
may find that their relationships are a direct reflection of several of the
other card energies that they need to embrace and understand more fully.
They may at one point attract a "Magician" and at another point, "The Hanged
Man or Woman", someone who is very hung up on relationship issues. By being
aware and working with the energy of the primary soul card as well as the
other archetypes the person is attracting, they can more easily find
resolution and solutions to life's challenges.
To find your own primary soul card you can use the following method: Sit
quietly and breathe in the energy of Divine Light and Radiance. When you
feel calm and peaceful, fan out the 22 cards of the major arcana face down.
Using your dominant hand, skim lightly over the backs of the cards and do
your best to sense the energy coming from each one. Do not rush this
process! Take your time and really allow yourself to move through this
process. You may feel that one card especially feels warm to you or makes
your hand tingle. You may feel a rush of energy moving through your heart
chakra or your third eye chakra that tells you which card is the right one.
Allow yourself to feel what ever you are feeling and don't judge it! When
you have reached the correct card, you may feel a sort of "click" inside
yourself, a sense of YES! This is the one! Now turn this card face up. Which
one is it? Please bear in mind that no one card is any better than another!
If you have chosen a "difficult" card such as The Devil, be aware that this
does NOT mean you are a horrible, evil person! Chances are good that instead
you are a very advanced, sensitive and gentle soul. You may have felt you
have been a scapegoat all of your life and now you have the chance to heal
this energy in your lifetime and thus help the world to heal from this
energy as well! The Devil is also a trickster card, it may be that you have
come into this lifetime to wake others up, to rattle their cages so they can
liberate themselves. What could be more Divine than the liberation of the
true expression of the Soul! For centuries there have been pat explanations
given as to what each card "means". Now you have the opportunity to go
beyond the pat answers and see the Divine expression that you are carrying
in this lifetime. While from time to time others may be able to help you
gain insights and ideas into what your primary soul card may mean for you,
ultimately this is a journey that you yourself must undertake alone. There
are no right or wrong answers. There is only your own inner exploration.
Each of the following essences is produced to help you navigate the personal
soul maps that each card of the major arcana holds for you. While I would
suggest that upon discovering your own personal primary soul card that it be
the essence you begin to work with first, always follow your own inner
guidance! It may be that at this time in your life your real need is for The
Star or The Hierophant. Later you may find that you do desire to work with
the essence that relates to your soul card.
