Enhance your Law of Assumption Practice with the Tarot

Do you set intentions for manifesting? Perhaps manifesting, the Law of Attraction and/or the Law of Assumption are more your jam than doing or getting Tarot readings. Maybe you even found that getting or doing a reading disrupted your manifesting process. This is a valid concern that I have seen addressed on various social media platforms. Hence today’s blog post.

However, it is only a problem if you have a one-dimensional view of the Tarot as a tool for fortune-telling. Digging a bit deeper, we can instead look at the Tarot as a tool for revealing any blocks to manifesting and what the journey of manifestation will look like unless those blocks are removed. We can also explore tapping into our imagination and subconscious through the symbolism of the Tarot.

The Tarot as a Mirror of the Soul

The Tarot has been used for personal insight and divination for hundreds of years. There are 78 cards in a standard tarot deck, which include the Major Arcana, representing major life themes and lessons, and the Minor Arcana, reflecting daily events and personal experiences. You can find card meanings for each of the cards HERE.

Each card has its unique symbolism that offers a mirror to the soul, revealing the subconscious layers that influence our everyday lives and decisions. Reflecting on the cards can yield profound insights into our inner workings, ambitions and fears. These insights allow the Tarot to serve not just as a tool for prediction, but also as a guide for personal growth.

The Tarot operates on the principle that it reflects the current energy that surrounds us. It is like a pool of water, showing us a reflection of the present moment. The cards we draw are indicative of the prevailing emotions, thoughts, and experiences that are shaping our lives. This reflective capacity of the Tarot allows individuals to see potential future outcomes based on the current trajectory. However, these are not set in stone. By becoming aware of these reflections, we can gain the insight needed to adjust our thinking or behaviour. This, in turn, actively influences the outcome.

Confronting Shadow

Working with the images and archetypes depicted in the Tarot can challenge us to engage with our shadow. The shadow is the aspect of the psyche that we tend to suppress and project. Shadowwork provides us with an opportunity to acknowledge and address unresolved issues or aspects of ourselves. The Tarot, therefore, can act as a catalyst for a transformative journey toward self-awareness and empowerment. In my opinion, this is not only desirable but necessary in terms of becoming skilful manifesters.

The Law of Assumption

The Law of Assumption is a philosophical concept suggesting that an individual’s reality is shaped by their beliefs. It posits that convictions we hold deeply and unquestioningly are especially effective in shaping our reality. Whatever you assume or believe with conviction becomes your experience because your subconscious mind draws upon these assumptions to influence your actions and attract corresponding events.

“Assume the feeling of your wish fulfilled and observe the route that your attention follows.”
― Neville Goddard

By steadfastly holding an assumption as a truth, the law posits that our minds will act upon it and manifest it into our physical reality, effectively ‘assuming’ it into existence. This ideology invites us to adopt a mindset in which we presume the realisation of our desires. We do this by envisioning and emotionally aligning ourselves with the outcomes we wish to attain.

By maintaining firm beliefs, without any internal opposition or doubt, we begin to experience life according to our convictions about reality.

Neville Goddard

Neville Goddard, an influential 20th-century mystical author and speaker, was instrumental in popularising the Law of Assumption. His teachings were based on a metaphysical interpretation of Scripture.

He argued for a disciplined mental diet. This means being conscious and selective of the thoughts and assumptions we allow to take root in our minds. Goddard’s insights and affirmations provided the foundational techniques and inspirations for many to harness the Law of Assumption.

The Role and Power of the Imagination

Neville Goddard placed the human imagination at the centre of the creative process. He taught that the power of imagination far exceeds that of mere fantasy or wishful thinking. It is the divine faculty that allows individuals to transcend their current circumstances and assume the reality of their desired state of being.

According to Goddard, when a person vividly imagines their desires being fulfilled, their subconscious mind brings about the necessary conditions in the external world to manifest that vision. He asserted that every person can harness this inner power and create the life they want. We do so by disciplining our minds to consistently envision our desired outcome as an already existing fact.

Tarot and Our Imagination

The Tarot, with its rich tapestry of symbols drawn from the collective unconscious, serves as a direct conduit to our imaginative faculties. These faculties reside beneath the surface of the beta brainwave pattern of ordinary consciousness. Each archetype invites us to connect with them in a more meditative frame of mind. Most of our subconscious programming happens before the age of 7. This is because young children are more often in the alpha and theta brainwave states of consciousness.

When we use the Tarot as a tool for reflection, we engage with the symbolic imagery in a way that plants seeds in the fertile ground of our subconscious minds. Learning to interpret the cards’ messages not as fixed outcomes, but as narrative fragments of our own story, empowers us to craft a visionary tale that resonates with the essence of our desires. As we do this, we prime our inner creative powers to assume—and ultimately manifest—the realities we seek.

So, as you see, the alchemical imagery found within the Tarot can act as an ally to the Law of Assumption. By visualising the scenarios depicted in cards that symbolise what we wish to manifest and feeling the emotional weight of their outcomes as if they have already come to pass, we activate within ourselves Neville Goddard’s principle of assuming the feeling of our wish fulfilled. This intertwining of Tarot practice with the Law of Assumption enables us to transform static pictures into dynamic, living experiences in our mind’s eye. Through this process of soul alchemy, we not only bolster the consistency of our assumptions but also strengthen the power of the imagination.

Clearing Blocks to Manifesting

But the Tarot is not limited to acting as food for the imagination. Starting the journey of manifestation with the Law of Assumption can be boosted by the use of Tarot as an introspective tool. In the process of deciding what we wish to manifest, we can use the Tarot as a reflective mirror. This mirror reveals the unspoken narratives and subconscious blockages that could potentially derail our efforts. The imagery and archetypes of the Tarot have the uncanny ability to bring to light the ingrained patterns and fears that often escape our conscious awareness. By revealing these hidden blocks, the Tarot provides us with the clarity needed to acknowledge and address these issues. This, in turn, sets the stage for a more direct path toward achieving our intended outcomes.

“Change your conception of yourself and you will automatically change the world in which you live.”
―  Neville Goddard

Incorporating the Tarot into the practice of the Law of Assumption serves not only to highlight areas of resistance but also to illuminate tendencies towards self-sabotage that we may harbour. The deeply symbolic nature of the cards offers insights into our deepest motivations. This allows us to discern whether our internal compass is truly aligned with our external goals.

As the Law of Assumption teaches that our underlying beliefs shape our reality, recognising and then consciously working through these disruptive subconscious elements helps us clear them. Thus, the Tarot facilitates a more fertile ground for assumption and manifestation. Reading the cards this way can be especially powerful when used together with EFT or Angel Reiki for clearing resistance.

The World Around Us and the Court Cards

“Do not try to change people; they are only messengers telling you who you are. Revalue yourself and they will confirm the change.”
―  Neville Goddard

When doing a reading to help with clearing blocks before embarking on a manifesting journey using the law of assumption, don’t be tempted to read the Court Cards as other people. Remember, ‘As within, So without.’ Other people in our lives simply mirror our internal landscape back at us. If you change your inner landscape, only the people who are aligned with who you truly are will remain in your life.

Tarot Visualisation Exercise

Let’s say you want nothing more than to find a community of kindred spirits where you feel as if you belong. You may wish to use the 10 of Cups to inform your subconscious mind of this new reality that you have chosen to assume. The next step is to imprint the symbolism of the card in your subconscious mind. You can do this by journeying with the card as outlined in the simple visualisation exercise below.

Visualisation Exercise with the Ten of Cups

Imagine you are standing at the edge of a gently flowing river. The water is clear, reflecting the warm hues of a setting sun. Around you, nature is in full bloom with vibrant flowers and lush greenery, emanating a sense of peace and abundance. Take a few deep and slow breaths, filling your lungs with the fresh, sweet air, and as you exhale, begin to relax every muscle in your body.

Look at the Card

Now, in your hand, you hold the 10 of Cups from the Tarot deck. Glance at the card and see the image of a loving couple with their arms outstretched towards the sky, their children playing nearby. A rainbow of cups spans above them, symbolising harmony and fulfilment. Everything about this scene exudes joy, contentment, and a sense of belonging.

Step into the Card

Close your eyes and visualise yourself stepping into this card. You become a part of this harmonious scene. Feel the grass beneath your feet, hear the laughter of the couple and their children, and feel the warmth of the setting sun on your skin. You are welcomed into this gathering with open arms, greeted as a long-lost friend and an important part of this community.

Around you, conversations take place, enriching exchanges flow effortlessly, and you feel a kinship with these kindred spirits. You engage with them, sharing stories, hopes, and dreams. There’s an undeniable feeling of acceptance and mutual respect in the air. They are elated to have you there, and you, in turn, are filled with gratitude to be part of this community.

With every breath you take, the lively image of the 10 of Cups becomes more vibrant and more tangible. You assume that this is your reality now—that you belong here and that this sense of community and joy is a part of your life. Immerse yourself in the feeling of complete acceptance and love that surrounds you.

Allow the colours of the rainbow to infuse your vision, metaphorically painting your life with the same vibrancy, love, and connectedness depicted in the 10 of Cups. Each cup in the rainbow represents an area of your life filled to the brim with love and satisfaction.

Spend a few moments reinforcing this reality in your mind. Feel the joy, the sense of unity, and the love permeating every aspect of your being. Assume this feeling is your new normal. This visualisation is where your reality resonates; this is where you belong.

Bring Yourself Back to the Present Moment

When you are ready, gently bring your attention back to the present moment. Open your eyes, holding onto the emotional weight of the Ten of Cups. Carry this sentiment with you throughout your day. Know that you are in the process of manifesting this harmonious and fulfilling reality into your life.

Make some notes in your Tarot and/or Law of Assumption journal. You can keep the 10 of Cups as a screensaver on your phone to remind yourself of your new reality.

The relationship between the Tarot and the Law of Assumption provides a powerful pathway to self-discovery and manifestation. By using the Tarot as a reflective tool, we can unearth subconscious blockages and align our inner narrative with our desired outcomes. This practice, coupled with the Law of Assumption, empowers us to assume our wishes as our current reality, setting a potent foundation for them to materialize in our lives.

I encourage you to explore and find your own creative ways to integrate these practices. You can create personal visualisations, meditative exercises with specific cards, Tarot affirmations or another approach that resonates with you. The important thing is to actively address the subconscious mind through the symbolism of the Tarot cards in ways that are enjoyable to you.
