Psychic Development for Tarot Readers

In today’s post, we are going to talk about psychic development for Tarot readers. Many people assume you have to be born psychic or clairvoyant to read the Tarot cards. This is simply not true. The reason you do not need to be psychic to read Tarot cards is because the card images speak to the subconscious mind through the universal language of symbols and archetypes. However, I actually believe that every single human being has psychic potential. It is not a superpower granted to just a few individuals.

We will be covering the following topics:

You do not need to be psychic to read the Tarot cards but reading the Tarot cards can reconnect you with your innate psychic abilities!

We can all intuitively tap into this universal language without engaging any of the psychic abilities. However, there is a fine line between intuition and psychic ability. And that fine line gets blurred further once we start working with the interpretation of symbols and archetypes. This is because the more we tap into the subconscious mind, the better we begin rewiring our brains to receive psychic messages.

In this sense, I believe we all have the potential to become profoundly psychic. And I also believe the Tarot can be helpful in the process of psychic development. It is simply a matter of where we direct our attention. When we begin reaching into the realm of the subconscious mind with our energy and our senses via the Tarot, our psychic abilities can begin to blossom.

Understanding Psychic Abilities

Psychic abilities are the capacities that enable individuals to perceive and interpret information beyond the scope of the five physical senses. These abilities allow individuals to tap into a deeper level of consciousness and access information that is not readily available through ordinary means.

  1. Clairvoyance (clear seeing): This ability involves the visualisation of symbols, images, or visions that are not visible to the naked eye.
  2. Clairaudience (clear hearing): This ability involves hearing sounds, voices, or messages from beyond the physical realm. In tarot readings, clairaudience may involve receiving auditory guidance or messages that help in understanding the cards’ meanings.
  3. Clairsentience (clear sensing): This ability allows individuals to sense or feel energies, emotions, or physical sensations.
  4. Claircognisance (clear knowing): This ability is a sudden insight or knowing without knowing how you came to that realisation. Understandably, some people who have this clair don’t even know they have it!
  5. Clairgustance (clear tasting) and Clairalience (clear smelling): These two abilities that are often linked involve tasting or smelling flavours or scents that are not physically present. While less common in Tarot readings, they can contribute to creating a more comprehensive sensory experience during a session.

Psychic Abilities Lead to More Useful Information

Engaging psychic abilities can lead to more useful information filtering through during the reading which is why I feel all Tarot readers benefit from psychic development. Psychic abilities allow readers to tap into the energetic and symbolic frequencies of the tarot cards as well as the energy of the Seeker, offering a deeper understanding of the messages and meanings they convey.

By incorporating psychic abilities into Tarot readings, readers can access intuitive information that goes beyond the surface-level interpretations of the cards. For instance, you can look at The Chariot and see clairvoyantly that it relates to car trouble for the client while just understanding the archetype might make you talk to them about strengthening their willpower through discipline or how their current venture is likely to be successful. Or you can look at the Queen of Cups and get a claircognisant psychic hit that this is about an emotionally manipulative friend of the Seeker rather than the Seeker herself.

Strengthening Intuition and Psychic Connection

In the realm of psychic development, actively strengthening our intuition and psychic abilities on a daily basis is essential. Daily practice can obliterate any blocks to trusting our inner guidance.

Five Ways to Strengthen Your Intuition and Psychic Connection

  1. Meditation: Meditation is always the first step to strengthening both your intuition and developing psychic abilities. Regular meditation allows for heightened awareness and a clearer connection to one’s intuition. It rewires the brain and begins the process of removing the filters of the conscious mind.
  2. Connecting with Nature and Grounding: Spending time in nature and engaging in grounding exercises can help individuals connect with their intuition. Nature has a way of grounding and centring us, making us more receptive to intuitive insights. Activities such as walking barefoot, sitting in a park, or simply observing the beauty of the natural world can help open the channels of intuition.
  3. Journaling and Reflective Exercises: Journaling is a powerful tool for self-reflection and accessing intuition. By writing down thoughts, feelings, and impressions, you can tap into your subconscious mind and gain clarity. Reflective exercises, such as asking open-ended questions and letting the answers flow naturally, can also help strengthen intuition.
  4. Energy-sensing: You use the Tarot cards as a tool for tapping into your psychic abilities. It’s ideal to combine this exercise with your journalling. Pick a card face down and hold the palm of your receptive hand over it. Be open to allowing psychic information to come through via any of the clairs. Just focus on your breath and be open to what comes. Write your impressions down before turning the card over.
  5. Working with the Angelic Realm: Angelic Tarot is an excellent way to speed up psychic development as the Angels are keen to help with this. All we have to do is ask!

Three Ways Psychic Abilities Develop with the Tarot

  1. Deepening Intuitive Insights: The Tarot acts as a visual and symbolic language that speaks to the subconscious mind. By regularly engaging with the cards, you are strengthening your intuitive muscle and expanding your ability to receive and interpret intuitive insights. As you familiarise yourself with the images and archetypes of the Tarot, you begin to tap into the energetic and symbolic frequencies they represent.
  2. Amplifying Psychic Sensitivity: The Tarot acts as a divination tool that can amplify your psychic sensitivity. When you work with the Tarot, you are engaging with the energy and vibrations of the cards and the person you are reading for. This heightened awareness and connection to energy can expand your psychic abilities. As you attune to the person or situation you are reading for, you may start to receive psychic impressions or messages that go beyond the information portrayed by the cards. The Tarot acts as a catalyst, opening up the channels for psychic information to flow more freely.
  3. Building Trust and Validation: By working with the Tarot, you are consistently receiving information, insights, and guidance that can be validated through your experiences and the feedback you receive from clients. This validation is a powerful tool for building trust in your psychic abilities. As you start to see the accuracy and relevance of the information you receive during Tarot readings, you gain confidence in your psychic gifts. This confidence, in turn, further strengthens your psychic abilities as you trust your intuition and allow it to guide you during readings.

On Tap?

So, as you can see, working with the Tarot can provide a structured framework for expanding your psychic connection and deepening your intuitive insights.

Does this mean that you will have psychic hits on tap for every reading you do? No, psychic abilities do not work that way. But the more grateful you are for the psychic hits you do get, the more of them you will experience. Gratitude amplifies all that we wish to manifest. So affirm often and with feelings of deep gratitude that you are profoundly intuitive and psychic.

Additional Practices for Psychic Development

Energy work and chakra balancing

When it comes to developing psychic abilities, energy work and chakra balancing play a crucial role. Our bodies are made up of energy, and by understanding and working with this energy, we can enhance our psychic connection. Energy work involves clearing and balancing the body’s energetic centres, known as chakras, to promote optimal flow and alignment.

Chakras are spinning wheels of energy located along the central axis of our bodies. Each chakra is associated with specific qualities and aspects of life, such as emotions, intuition, creativity, and communication. By practising energy work techniques, such as meditation, visualisation, and energy healing modalities like Reiki, we can release blockages and harmonise these energy centres, allowing our psychic abilities to flourish.

Mastering our body’s energy system is also crucial for psychic shielding.

Working with divination tools other than tarot

While Tarot cards are powerful tools for psychic development, there are various other divination tools that can enhance our intuitive abilities. Astrology is perhaps the most important modality to help enhance your intuitive and psychic abilities. That is because Astrology underpins all systems of occult and esoteric learning.

Pendulums can be used to tap into our subconscious and receive yes-or-no answers from our higher self or spirit guides. By asking specific questions and observing the pendulum’s movement, we can gain insights and clarity. Or you can try muscle testing which operates on much the same principles as the pendulum.

Crystals, on the other hand, carry their own energies and vibrations, and by selecting and working with specific crystals, we can amplify our intuitive abilities or focus on specific areas of our psychic development. There are also many ways of working with crystals together with the Tarot.

Runes offer ancient wisdom and symbolic language that can be used for divination, manifesting and connecting with our intuition. Exploring these divination tools can open new pathways for receiving psychic information and expanding our intuitive repertoire.

Seeking guidance from experienced psychics or mentors

Embarking on the journey of psychic development can be both exciting and challenging. To accelerate our growth and gain valuable insights, seeking guidance from experienced psychics or mentors can be immensely beneficial. These individuals have honed their psychic abilities and can provide valuable advice, techniques, and perspectives based on their own experiences.

Experienced psychics or mentors can offer guidance on specific practices, exercises, or rituals that can aid in our psychic development. They can also provide support and reassurance during moments of uncertainty or doubt. Through their expertise and wisdom, they can help us navigate the complexities of psychic abilities, teach us ethical practices, and offer personalised insights tailored to our unique circumstances. Whether through formal mentorship programs, online communities, or personal connections, seeking guidance from experienced psychics or mentors can be an invaluable resource on our psychic development journey.

Ethical Considerations for Psychic Development

Importance of Ethical Behavior in Psychic Practice

Ethical behaviour is of utmost importance in the field of psychic readings. It ensures that practitioners maintain integrity, professionalism, and a genuine commitment to the well-being of their clients. Here are some key points highlighting the importance of ethical behaviour in psychic practice:

  1. Trust and Confidentiality: Respecting the privacy of clients builds trust and establishes a strong foundation for the therapeutic relationship.
  2. Informed Consent: Clients should be fully aware of the nature and purpose of the psychic reading before it takes place. Providing clear explanations about the process, potential outcomes, and any limitations inherent in psychic readings allows clients to make informed decisions and freely consent to the session.
  3. Boundaries and Professionalism: Maintaining clear boundaries between the practitioner and the client is crucial to ensure a professional and ethical environment. This includes refraining from giving unsolicited advice, avoiding personal biases, and respecting the personal beliefs, values, and cultural backgrounds of clients.
  4. Non-discrimination and Inclusivity: Psychic practitioners should strive to create a safe, non-judgmental and inclusive space for everyone seeking their services.
  5. Accuracy and Honesty: Psychic practitioners should refrain from making false promises, exaggerated claims (100% accuracy is a common claim), or manipulating clients for personal gain.
  6. Empowerment and Free Will: Ethical psychic practice encourages clients to make their own choices and decisions based on the information received. Respecting and honouring the free will and autonomy of clients is a fundamental ethical principle.
  7. Continuous Professional Development: Ethical psychic practitioners engage in ongoing training, education, and personal growth to improve their skills and knowledge.

Staying Grounded and Maintaining Personal Well-being

Staying grounded and prioritising personal well-being is crucial for psychic practitioners. Here’s why it matters:

  1. Self-Care: Psychic work can be demanding, emotionally draining, and energetically challenging. Practitioners must prioritise self-care to replenish their energy and maintain their well-being.
  2. Establishing Boundaries: Setting clear boundaries between personal life and psychic work is vital. Practitioners should designate specific times for readings and allow themselves sufficient time for rest, reflection, and personal activities. Maintaining this balance helps prevent burnout and ensures the longevity of their psychic practice.
  3. Grounding Techniques: Grounding techniques, such as meditation, spending time in nature, or engaging in physical activities, help practitioners stay connected to the present moment and anchor their energy. Grounding enhances clarity, stability, and focus, allowing practitioners to provide accurate and centred readings.
  4. Psychic Protection: Psychic practitioners should develop effective techniques for protecting their energy field from negative influences or unwanted energies. Psychic protection practices, such as shielding, energetic cleansing, or the use of protective crystals, can help create a safe and energetically balanced space for readings.
  5. Continuous Learning and Growth: To stay grounded, practitioners should engage in continuous learning and personal growth. This can involve studying different psychic modalities, exploring new techniques, or receiving mentorship from experienced practitioners. Personal growth ensures that practitioners evolve and maintain a fresh perspective in their practice.
  6. Support Systems: Maintaining connections with like-minded individuals, such as other psychic practitioners or supportive communities, can provide valuable support, guidance, and understanding. Building a network of support helps practitioners navigate challenges, share experiences, and seek advice when needed.
