I've been reading the Tarot for just shy of a decade now. I've done readings for myself, my family, friends, random students at college, co-workers,
and more. As with you, once I learned the associations and how to connect symbolism present in a reading I found myself able to intuit the cards and
their spiritual network with an almost unfailing accuracy.
I also live a very spiritually charged life. I have never blamed my understanding of the Tarot's library of symbolism for the increased paranormal
activity present in my life. Instead, if there is a culprit to be named, it is my own consciousness. My own mind, imbued with the ability to recognize
the spirit of all things, ever-present in our waking and dreaming life. This understanding of the archetypal world was aided by, but not caused by, my
understanding of the Tarot.
You seem to have a good adherence to Catholic doctrine (what-with mentioning Churches banning Tarot because it is "witch-craft" and all). So, I
would suggest that your paranormal activity may be a result to sermons given in church about the threat of "Satan," and his power to influence your
life if you stray from Christ's lessons even one iota. By hearing the continuous rhetoric of "Satan" and his power you've trained your mind to
believe that anything unnatural is possibly/probably malignant, and not benign.
My advice: try to co-exist with whatever unnatural presence is sharing your living space. And do a spread for yourself, when you're curious about
something concerning yourself. The Tarot won't hurt you anymore than you would inevitably end up hurting yourself, by ignoring the warnings
subconsciously displayed before you in a given spread.
