Working with positive affirmations is an effective way to create the changes we desire in our life. Fear and anxiety can create lots of limitations on both our well-being and the ability to fulfill our potential in life. Today, for the third part of our Tarot affirmations series, we are looking at how to use Tarot affirmations to overcome general low-level anxiety, social anxiety, fear, and tension.
Please note that you should always speak to a medical health care professional about any problems with fear and anxiety that are affecting your quality of life, especially if your sleep is also affected. Tarot affirmations are a complementary tool for wellbeing, just like using essential oils or crystals to enhance your quality of life. The Tarot should never be used to replace the advice of your doctor or other health care professionals.
As someone who has suffered from fear, depression, anxiety, and panic attacks from childhood well into adulthood (I’m now 46 and have been completely well for many years), I can vouch for the healing power of the Tarot. The Tarot teaches us how things fit together, helps us see the bigger picture, and connect the dots. Every aspect of life is covered by the 78 Keys and their countless combinations. Together they act as a mirror for the soul and can provide guidance for our journey. The cards can help us feel less ‘alone’ when we contemplate the fact that the wisdom of the ancients is being reflected back at us.
Our problems, small and big, are all already known. Each card mirroring one of our problems contains within the key to its resolution. This knowledge alone is enough to begin soothing a worried mind. Many Tarot readers also find that the act of shuffling the cards has a soothing, grounding, and centering effect.
The deck used in this post is the Frideborg Tarot but you can use these affirmations with any deck that speaks to you. Carry the card with you as a reminder or take a photo of the card/affirmation you are working with and keep it as the screen saver on your phone.
