Have you ever wanted to develop your psychic abilities but were a little unsure exactly where to start or how? Perhaps you’ve been experiencing a lack of confidence in stepping out and trusting your intuitive nature because it all seems a bit too overwhelming. Yes, many of us have had those first time jitters; feeling like a deer caught in the headlights. With a little practice and the right tools, even the most psychically challenged can begin to greatly hone their abilities, especially when the right method is employed.tarot reading, tarot cards

Ad hoc Psychic Tarot is an exceptional method to that end; that when properly incorporated into a reading will not only greatly enhance your innate spiritual connection but will naturally boost your intuitive self-confidence as well. While traditional Tarot presents a meaningful and well established layout to follow, the ad hoc method is aimed at freeing you to include a more dynamic and interpretive approach to your readings. Consider ad hoc similar to riding a bike with training wheels; you might not be all too certain you have what it takes to make the ride on your own, but the extra support is great to have when you really need it the most.

Beginning the Reading

As with any Tarot reading, have the querent hold the cards while concentrating on his or her question. This short period of time provides your client with an important moment to gather and focus their intentions for the reading. After about 15 to 30 seconds, retrieve the deck from the querent and start shuffling the cards. As you do this, pay close attention to any impressions you may be getting from the cards; allowing yourself to connect to their energies.

Some readers may be a little reluctant to allow their clients to touch or hold the cards for one reason or another; however, let me assure you that your cards can be easily cleansed of any residual energy and restored to their former state at any time. When you’re finished with a reading, simply cup the deck between your hands and visualize a field of white light surrounding and purifying them. Do this for about 30 seconds or until you feel the cards have been sufficiently cleansed of residual energy.

Having the client hold the cards is a very important part in the reading process as it provides you and the querent a moment of clarity from which the reading can proceed. In addition to the clarity, it will also facilitate a greater connection to the energy flow that is present; ensuring that the continuity and cohesiveness of your reading maintains a high level of integrity throughout.

If you want to see how important the nature of this connection is, find someone who seems to have an intense capacity for concentration. Ask them to hold the cards while attentively focusing their energy upon them for about a minute. After you retrieve the cards, take note of any immediate sensations you receive such as the quality; whether weak or strong. Next, compare that to a more lax and carefree individual, repeating the same exercise. The differences may be subtle, but with careful discernment you should be able to sense definite variations between the two subjects.

Ad hoc Placement Method

To help keep things organized at this point, select a layout that you’re either comfortable with or seems suitable for the question being asked. One layout I personally like to use is the Celtic Cross which comprises all the elements needed to cover most questions that can be asked; i.e. past, present, future, above, below, covering, and outcome. Just as the cards’ symbolism communicates specific elements of a reading, the same can be said of an organized layout. By establishing a well organized framework for your reading you’ll be providing a great medium through which your intuitive and more spontaneous side can anchor the results.

Now that you’ve connected to the querent’s energies through the cards, you’ll want to start being sensitive to their pull. This pull is what I like to refer to as the card whisperer effect; carefully listening to which card is speaking and allowing them to direct their placement on the table. This pull can feel much like a tug or push me pull me sensation, gently guiding you in a specific direction and usually accompanied by a sensation of yes here or not there.

Everybody knows that a deck of cards with different drawings in full of color is known as Tarot cards but does anyone knows where it came from? Well, its name Tarot derived from the Italian word tarocchi, it is believe that it this name relates to the river of the same country, the Taro River. But still there are arguments about the real origin of its name but enough proof are needed prove these facts.

Before these decks of cards are used in knowing the future, these are used in playing games. These are cards are created during 1430 to 1450 in Italy with the number of 52 to 56 cards per deck, but the illustrations in these cards are different from what we seen today. For upper class and aristocrats of the 14th century the drawings of these cards are intricately hand painted.

Aside from being used in playing games, Tarot is also used in the field of Literature and Psychoanalysis. In literature, these cards are used for communication in gatherings or meetings by knights or member of royalty that cannot speak. They just show the card as a means of expressing themselves in front of the council. The characters in the deck are also used as a subject or personas in a stories or literature in the 16th century. For psychoanalysis, Timothy Leary suggested that the drawings in these cards represent the development of a human being from infant to adult. It also used in self-perception test where subjects choose a card from the tarot deck that identifies with him.

The usage of tarot fortune telling begins in the 18th century. The first book about Cartomancy, a term for using cards in divination or fortune telling, was written by Etteilla to serve as guide in using the tarot cards. She is also one of the founders of the Occult tarot along with other two French writers. This development marks the beginning of involvement of tarot in the world of mysticism and magic.
