Tarot both works and is a lie. it basically depends on the cardreader.
If you know how to manipulate people, which has become suprisingly easily these days, it's a fake. you can lay cards and read emotions and facial
expressions and play with that. tell the "client" excactely what they want to hear. but are you answering the question that person had? no, you're
not. you're just telling them what they want to hear and give them that little push they need to fullfill their own prophecy.
if you have a reader that actually knows what they're doing they don't need to manipulate. just like the case explained above you need to draw
cards. while doing this you conciously or unconciously pick the cards you need. you're guided by your guides/guardians to pick the right cards.
The reader will lay the cards in a pattern and then read what is laying in front of him her. a proper reader will also get images in his/her head
while doing the reading. these will be interpetated(Sp?) and explained to the "client". as a little extra's to the cards themselves.
it's true that cards give a very global reading which can be understood in many ways. like a vague horoscope in a magazine. but if the "client" had
a specific question in their mind a more detailed answer will come out of it.
tarot basically talks about past events and things occuring now as well as events that will "most likely" take place in the near future. keep in
mind that most of the future is not set in stone and can be altered depending on your choices and decisions. however certain events ARE set in stone.
these are the events which are very important to you such as certain lifes lessons and death. you can't change the future of those specific events
because they're set in stone and are important to you and thus you can prevent it from happening. BUT they will just happen anyway in another form
within a day or 2. you can only look about 3 weeks ahead in time with certainty, if you go further you'll notice to much changes due to free will and
decisions that can be made which will cause the future of the individual to go into another side street.
Tarots are mainly used to give you new insight and possible solutions and answers. after a reading is done do not live like it's the way to go.
forget about the reading and when things occur then think...oh yah that's what was said in the reading...
as for spirits, demons, angels being used...people give those way to much credit and don't know what they're on about, except for the outdated
beliefs from a book. everything is energetic work. and a lot if not most of it comes from within ourselves. Jesus, God, Satan WILL NEVER come to aid
you or kick you down. it's your guides and guardians and no one else, no matter what people claim. but then again christians easily condemn and
judge that which they don't understand and everything is the devils work when they don't agree with something. they even refuse to accept the gifts
given by their so called god. it's a pity
then again i got some items that contain spirits, but they're elementals.
best way to do a tarot reading is to let the individual think about their question then let them breath and clear their mind while picking the cards
needed from the deck. the higher self/inner being whatever you wanna call it of that individual will pick the cards that hold the answer to the
question asked. a proper reader, not a wanna-be or charlatan, will read the cards and will also get flashes of images or messages to relay to the
and no stupid questions like "what's my name" won't be answered. it's like asking a pendle a question you already know the answer to.
can't wait for my new deck to arrive
black and white magic = no difference
that is the dumbest reaction i read in a while on this board. you say you did all that and still know nothing about it? missy i've been doing this
for over 12 life times now and there IS a difference. not the difference people associate with it though.
according to the defination of mankind White magic resembles all that which is good. even the church uses this in their prayer and rituals. Do no harm
is the motto of white magic according to man. Black magic automatically is the opposite and therefore it's "evil" and used only to cause harm to
that defination is FLAWED beyond belief. the difference in that type of magic is on an energetic level. magic = energy...different wording for
excactely the same thing. people who use energy for their paranormal gifts are doing magic, everyone who is doing magic is using energy. get the
there is no right or wrong concept in the usage of magic whether it's black or white or bleu or brown etc. the intent of the user is that which turns
the magic bad or good. the cause it is used for is important. black magic can heal and white magic can traumatise people just as well as it can be
done vice versa. don't go blaming gods or such when it is yourself doing the evil things. remember...free will and such? but a lot of people think
it's cool to do black arts because it stands for everything which is bad according to mankinds definition of it. it's pathetic to say the least.
i personaly use White, Grey and Blue magic.
but finding people who are strong in mind these days is tough. "satan", even though it's Beelzabub in charge of the demonic hierarchy, is having a
field day for quite a few decennia now. why? because people want to according to their decisions and life styles.
right and wrong, good and evil neither excists. only you excist and your intent. your soul personality whether it's demonic, celestial or something
else defines what you should do. what excists is Order and Chaos. everyone fulfills their role in this to maintain Order in the world.
you should do what makes you happy and what others say or do is not important. if your soul personality is to aid people then do so, if your
personality is to kill others then do so. both are needed for the greater good and balance.
unfortunately people made their own justice and beliefs system which is forced down on others over time and now globally excepted. what happened to
"don't judge unless you want to be judged yourself?". since when do we have the right to judge each other according to our own internal feelings of
what is good and wrong? let the deities/gods and the karma system do their work instead of taking upon yourselves to judge people who you don't agree
good and evil is a subjectief concept which differs for every individual. what makes you feel good or bad feels different to me. i might like what you
hate and vice versa.
