By approaching the Tarot from a place of calm and centeredness, we open the door to receiving guidance from our intuition and universal wisdom. To get the most out of your reading, try these simple, preparatory steps:
Find a comfortable seat, either on a chair or yoga mat
Close your eyes
Take a few deep, cleansing breaths
Focus on a prayer or mantra of your choice
Formulate your question
If you do not have a personal mantra, here is a simple statement of intention you may wish to use:
I open my heart and my mind to being fully present. I open my heart and my mind to connecting with my intuition. I open my heart and my mind to receiving any messages from the universe and positive energies around me. I open my heart and my mind to reading the Tarot cards with meaningful insight and clarity.
