A Consultation For An Adventure. The Three Cards Tarot Reading.

I love how Hagar and Eddie appears happy at this image.
Copyright to Dik Browne and King Features Syndicate, Inc.

Hagar is one of my favorites.

He is not that typical hero.
He is just a normal man, but already he is the leader of his group and a proud Viking.

Well, he is not exactly that kind of "normal" man.
He goes into other lands, have fights and even against dragons.

And more, he is a loved husband with a wife, a daughter and a son, each one with their own aspects and interests to deal with.

Everyone who have a family knows this is already a lot of compromises to deal with.

Just think about Elga, his beloved wife. She is not just caring about home.
For sure no! Elga knows her husband is a warrrior and watch for him the same way about her children.

When Hagar himself goes to get a reading, there's more than the funny or just curious aspect.

At our lives sometimes we need the opinion from others about what we are doing and to check our steps.

This is a reason for the readings for an adventure.
What are the possibilities, the choices and options to deal with, what is behind that, some to learn, etc.

With the Tarot, there's a popular reading scheme using just three cards for such things.
This will vary a bit for each case.
The most popular assignments to each card at the triple scheme are:
Past, present, future.
Situation, Current events, Outcome.
The adventure, how to deal, what probably coming.

These are just some basic patterns, but the one doing the reading may be able to deal with that as a phrase or a full block of ideas to work more. 

So what to expect?
First, to understand what is the current environment. What is the reason, how you was before trying your attempt? What happened in the past? What is the reason for the reading?
Second, is the process to deal with it. How to work, what to observe or is needed to learn. Or the current events and the need to learn more about.

Finally at third position, some possible results or what is the possible environment or challenges coming.

Simple? Uhm, not just so.

Here is why I explore more at my readings and a reason I do a lot more in my work, not just the basics. I can't be quiet when there's more to say. Sometimes I can only suggest something more, for sure I won't be stupid for that kind of opportunist clients. And sorry, I have to cite such ones who pretend I enter into a war for free.

For each card and position we find lots of possibilities to explore and learn about life and all the background related to each case.
So at first position, why such events happened? Was that a reason to start with such doubt or there are something hidden to discover?

The next position talks about how to deal, or how things are moving. In no ways means people have to become static. No! This is the action time. This is when people will be acting to explore, develop, learning and even changing any possible outcome.
Here I will explore more, to see whats happening, what is unseen, what is needed to learn. 

Then, the next card, the third, means what is possible to happens only and only if the person does nothing to change that. So, that is not a garantee for some possible future, but what energies are ready to receive the current events.

For another point of view, sometimes the third card is not pointing for some "future events".  I say at some cases the third card is a resource tool, to show where to point our resources and work. a goal to work after.

And again, I will be exploring more about what such goal means and back to the first card, how that is related to the person. Here a reason a like to make a more complete reading observing the numerology aspects.
Any reading watching for future events (in my opinion) may observe what is the person's main goal in life. An d this is very related to the numerology study I will do only once since the first reading, and such information is for an entire life.

We can get direct information even from a simple one or a three cards reading, or whatever method.
The most important is the client to get all needed information as possible.

Receiving Oracle Skills by Initiation.

Be sure giving the Key is not a physical act only.

Receiving Oracle Skills by Initiation.


How become instantly good with oracles due some occult supernatural ways. 

Learning a more complex oracle, like the Tarot, Runes, I-Ching, etc. is something that demand study, practice, research in other related areas according with the oracle being studies, etc.

Just to make simple comment, I'm using more the Tarot as an example. 
The first most people learn is a general meaning to each card, rune and some basic spreads to place the cards and have some kind of reply. Most of people don't do much more and only expect to be using their own natural intuition for that.
Even if the person have a gift of birth like vidence, this does not add so much. All they have are ideas or visions and will deal accordingly their life experience only to understand what they see.
So the next needed is to start a more former study about each card, not only the basic meanings, but some of the idea each card express and how it is related to the others. Is here people start to understand more about the real way the oracle works. This will add a lot to understand the ideas and how intuition may help too, and to get more complex understanding and relations amog

The following, is learning about the inner symbols of the cards, planets, astrological signs, numbers, elemental correspondences and so on.
This is just about technical aspects.
The other to develop is the own intuition capabilities, learn more about other areas to understand more about people, society, etc.
So this is a wide area to study for sure.

There's the possibility to increase that throught initiations. To access other levels and discover more areas and this way improve the reading capability.
For sure this is not something like "instant learning" nor "instant vidence" capabilities. 

Many see initiation just as a rite to get a diploma, many may think this is an instant miracle way for new super-powers.

Initiation at basic levels, is just to become in contact with some kind of knowledge.
This is the human level.

But at the higher spiritual levels, the initiation is a process to receive a kind of key.

You must see the idea of "key" just as something that may connect you to something.

Like opening a door to you.
BUT, see, the door just is opened, you still need to enter by your legs and learn what is behind that point.

Get this? Is not an instant capability.

You will just receive the key, or a connection to a resource at the other realms.
If you was working to prepare for it, for sure you will see results faster, but again, this is why you already have done all the previous needed work.

So you will enter there, entire new realms and possibilities and see by yourself to learn.
Some will have a lot to learn, others will be ready for that.
Anyways, they was in the merit to receive it despite how much practice.
Yes, even without so much practice some people may have the needed merit, just need more hard practice that often happens very fast.

I may give to someone an intiation to an oracle or something else, but still there are the need to work with it, practice and study. Before and after.

This is why some people may receive such initiation and have a jump on their skills: they was just working and was ready to receive a better resource.

And no, no, no, do not even think to ask for that. This is not something to buy too.
Yes, too often some people try and they received only what they deserved... Sorry...
You can buy a diploma, but never the merit or real skills.

I may give such initiations by my own to the ones who deserved the merit. Never to the ones who asked. They was just fooled by themselves.
I give such initiations sometimes, when the disciple/student is really ready.
Some have tryed to be "opportunists" and received just a fake key pointing into their own darkness. Betrayers! They even received a "mystic name" from me. To these ones,, as they are vampires out of light, such names was just what they never had done and what they have to discover to deserve what they asked for. A bill for life at most.
I'm looking at both sides, Uhm?

Remember the phrase: "When te disciple is ready the master comes"?
Is this.
You can't ask for it.
It may happens to you someday if you keep walking and do your own homework.

And this can happens in two basic ways:
1) Meeting someone who will give the keys and will be an incredible experience.
2) Astral initiation. Uhm something like at someday or night, you receive a vision, or the sky opens up and you see a big flame or spirit/angel and they will give it to you.
Yes, it really happens this way, I had some and will be only yours as you keep the work.

Some formal Orders do a nice work to give the keys to the ready ones . But even there you must do the work.
So, study, practice, take notes, improve yourself. Sometime when you are ready that will happens.



Reading for Yourself. How Ensure Objectivity in Personal Readings? Some notes.

Mirror Gazing. As an oracle too, what you see?
Unkonow photo author.

Someone questioned: I sometimes find it difficult to be objective when we do personal readings. So, my question is: how do you ensure objectivity in personal readings? I usually write it down in the third person as if I were speaking to someone else. Other methods?

My Reply:

At any oracle, Tarot, Runes, etc. a reading to someone else or just for yourself must be objective. 

Think on Meditation and Therapy.

Yes. something I found to be needed is therapy.

So is needed to be as most as possible like a third person, even about yourself. 

Meditation will lead into yourself. And what you will find there? Ego, traumas, a lot of personal problems and even from past lives to deal with.

Well, you can become a hero and deal with all that alone.

But there are a lot of methods that help to learn faster and will help to deal and even cleanup all that mess.

A good therapy is a very valuable resource.

Many schools use that and yes, many cases are well resolved with psychologists.
Ok, have some patience with the psychologists too.  :rofl

Once I got a female psychologist, and I commented to her some of my occult background. The result was funny: she had a real strong fear from me. She always used to keep at the opposite side of the room and each time she gave a reply, she used to say something like "I ask permission to all your degrees to suggest that... blah-blah-blah...". At third meeting she was presenting me some texts and books about the "crazy ones genious in history" and suggesting to introduce psychotropic drugs...  LOL...

So I moved to another one, and just presented what I was in need to work, but no information about occult works. The guy did a fantastic specific work in just [b]two [/b]one hour meetings. Dot.

There are a lot of alternative therapies. As a sannyasin, I did a lot and my Master Osho told just this about, the need of cleaning, improving yourself and to save a lot of time.

Just to note, at the alternative therapies area, there are a lot of formal practices like the ancient Ayurvedic medicine, acupunture, Gurdjeff, etc, etc., that at many western countries still are not formally recognized, even with thousands years of practice.
And there are many workshops to work on specific areas of life, some last 2-3 days and even more, when people usually goes to some place and stay there doing an immersion to work that. For sure, the results vary a lot for each one accordingly your concioussness level and what you are working with.

Most of times, the good workshops with formal trained therapists do more in few days than you will get instead of working alone for a long time. Some of that workshops may be at easy levels while others may present workings where you will be really and deep faced with the possibility of dealing with deeper points.
In my specific case, I missed the opportunity to go to Poona in India while Osho was alive for the stupidest reason: a marriage and accepting due the wrong reasons the opinion of my ex-wife. Ok, I paid to learn that. But I never gave up and continued.
I learned that our personal development is above anything. No one will compensate for your work of self-evolution, just yourself.
I remember Osho used to say that when it comes to your own evolution, your personal work of consciousness, you must be selfish. No one will do it for you, only yourself. Ok, you can try to sell your soul, and lack the evolution.  LOL...
This is that always helped a lot to keep my faith, despite all the problems and even at the most difficult times.
So I continued and I had the opportunity to be at a Ashran with my Master in the Andes mountains, an entire month each year for many times in the 90s, and that was an immersive experience of workshops one after other in the mountain and the woods. Each workshopt was 2-3 days of extreme experiences. The ones who was easy got nice results. Yes, always there are a lot of people who are just mystics and so easy. Others who went deep, have meet big results. What about learn to run in the woods, having to climb a mountain running, blindfolded and with instructors actually chasing you and really hard beating you with wood sticks? I say really serious spanking. No masochism, that guys was really great. Think about to run like that in the middle of large bushes full of thorns that hurts a lot. Yes, we did that at very risk places like ravins and pits. Add to this all the spiritual part. And in my case, the contact with spirits I started many times before. If you had read some of Castaneda works, is this I'm talking. Near same kind of teaching. That school had some very related works and this means, no choice to error. Glad we never had see even a broken leg even with all extreme risk. Only many scrapes and cuts on the skin. One teaching I have for myself was if choose to give up facing the problems may hurt more in the rest of your life. I learned to run where there was no way.
Before someone ask, I fully give thanks to the teachings I experienced and did by myself, but the schools become something very soft later, the instructors I knew have gone and today it appears more like a nice SPA resort for rich people after spiritual tourism.  Still a nice place to visit and some of the current soft works can be interesting to who is not after a fashion life style.

When you take the Tarot for you, remember this is about having some better understanding about yourself.

This is what you will find in a personal reading. You.

Are you ready to look to yourself?

Something I disagree with others is about consider all posible card interpretations. As an oracle reader, you must develop your vision and have just one interpretation to each case.
For sure, this take time to learn, with practice and study.

But what is the right answer? Usually the first idea you get in your mind. Not what you get one second later.
You must be able to get the first impression, like a "flash" of light. That is the reply when working with any oracle.

But you is the one who have to accept what you see.

And trust me, by personal experience, this can be painfull sometimes, just because what the oracle sometime will point is not what you want.

To give an idea as an example too:
A practice I did in the past, is a shamanic method of self healing.
In this case, to heal your eyes if you use glasses.
I use it.
The practice is simple: think the source of the eyes health problems is just because you does not want to see something, nor accept something. In resume, our eyes troubles most often cames due our mind refuse to accept what is seen. This is the general idea.
So you have to compromise yourself and say: "I accept to see and I want to see all I don't want to see".
It's a daily practice. I removed my glasses more and more until I was for many months without wearing glasses.
BUT, see, I started to see a lot I was not wanting to see.
This means, you will see the world, the people, your life, any aspects.

And I became to suffer with that.
I already commented about not being masochist in another posts during personal healing practices nor at any therapy.
Well, after many months I was seeing too much about everything. My senses and visions about people and anything extended to a level I was really unaware to deal. I found a lot more behind all that I was not seeing. Most that was not important to solve nor desirable.
So I stopped with it. And yes, I'm kept fully aware from all that if needed.

Well, the Dalai Lama wear glasses, uhm?

Ok, this is one idea. You may use the oracle and ask to see.
This is why is a very good idea always to do a prayer and invoke a specific angel/spirit/deity to work with you on the reading.
This way you are not only on your knowledge as they will talk with you, develop your intuition.

But you have to ask to see and work to be able to accept what you see, no matters how much you dislike it.

Be sure my human part really hate many readings I do for myself.
One more reason sometimes I ask to others to do a reading for me, even beginners.
My human part need a check, no matters how good I know to be on my oracles and all the feedback I receive, still is my human part, and our mind can cheat us.

The lust for results.

This is one very important aspect about "personal readings": lust for results.

A good reply is when the oracle point a "no way" result.
Ok, you must be able to accept the reply and what is shown. Or be stupid to follow even when the oracle show a problem if you continue.

But there is something that can drive any one into nuts.

So, as I remember for now, there are at least two replies we may get from the oracle that we really dislike:
"Not yet".
"Wait. Things are going to change".

That is a shit!
And why?

You are doing all you can, using all teachings you received while working to change or make something happens.
And you deep need or want that to happens.

Here, the only I have to say is: have patience.

Oh shit!!!!

But sometimes is very hard to have patience when all kind of troubles are knocking at your door.
Or you are working for a long time to get something.

There's something to do?
Yes. One thing I learned is to be humble and talk to others who are on the path. The people who you know are already doing the work.
Remember, you are not alone.

May be some day you will be so high you will be be alone in the highest mountain.
And guess what? You won't be alone if you remember you can talk with the trees, the birds, the mountain himself.
They will talk with you too, just learn to listen.

Birds like to do gossip. This is what they are doing at the trees in the morning and at the eventide.
One more reason I have a place with food to the birds in my garden. They comment about everything they see in the town.
Pay attention to them. Is a way to learn their language.

But anyways, we are humans. I'm not so leveled up to just let any worry.

I survived to many hard events. But I'm human.
Glad I had people to talk with.
And always my full thanks to all who have helped, that is really priceless and never will be forgotten.

So to resume about your personal readings: work to cleanup your life history, develop your intuition, be ready to listen and as possible, get the first message and have a second view from someone else to compare with your results.
This will add power to your readings for other people too as you discover the best is to be clear with them about yourself.
If  you are clear, no masks, you will be objective and people will discover you is a normal person too. I have the same problems most people have, at all areas, be sure. I just had a lot of experiences that become part of my practices and learning and I can share this without fear.
Discovering yourself is part of becoming true.

How Long Maybe a Tarot Reading?

Amazing Climatic Changes.....
Photo by: Teresa - Portugal

How Long Maybe a Tarot Reading?

"When you are after replies to your doubts, or exploring the misteries to get more knowledge there's not such thing as so big or so small.

All that matters when you got what you needed and not just what you wanted at start."

I got a new record in a tarot reading: lots of pages of text.
Often I add pictures of the cards I’m reading, but this time my camera is broken. And was not a case to copy the same cards images from somewhere else as I did when the client will be able to get more ideas or information from the images.
This was just a Standard type reading, without commenting the numerology related aspects that would add a lot more. Even so, at some part I did a minor citation about in case the person may want to learn more about himself.
Usually I try to be at 10 pages range in a standard reading. Some resulted at 15-18 pages and was a lot until now in my way of working. But this was really big.

Road To Paradise
Digital Art Photo by Nikola Petreski - Macedonia

Each person is different.

This case was even something simple when I took the initial One Main card. I have an option for such reading. The problem become when I start to comment that and explore in detail the aspects.
The matter was even a normal life question, but the client was on need to understand more the aspects, and this is what I’m working for, not just a reply, but add information to the client understand and be able to walk by himself.
This is why I say my work is first for guidance.
Even when the reading is for explore about some work on magic, I have to explain why and what I’m think is possible to do. There’s things people can do by themselves while at other times, I found is correct to explain what is I’m suggesting to work and why and how that will be related for going after for a result.
Just to remember, nobody can assure guarantee results in magic and this is clear stated and explained at the “Readings and workings” page.
Would be easy to me just say… “oh yes, this is so and so and I suggest this or that”.
But no.

See, I’m working alone, far away from the client. This is not a live talking to ask questions or get more information. I’m just working with my own vision plus the Tarot or any other oracle I found suitable to someone anywhere in the world. The same way I need to trust on my guts I found needed to explain what I’m seeing the better way.
And I can’t got quiet when I’m talking with a client, or as usuall, I’m just writing to someone really far away (99,99% most of my clients live far and at other countries). So as my main work is guidance and I’m seeing there’s information the person does not get by himself or have a need to learn more about what I’m talking.
By learning, I say I will try to teach and suggest personal aspects to observe and how to deal with that, areas to explore and study in life. A reason any magic work is under my discretion.

Another simple reason, is my work is not cheap, so I’m not just adding words to make the proposal to be “nice”, but because there’s the need to understand a bit more about what we do and why some works goes easy from hundreds to many thousand dollars value. Such works are not just golden pills to use and when suggested, some may result even in a long working time from myself and even risks evolved, for example, if someone ask me to enter in a kind of war due some reason in their interest this may result in some kind of backfire I have to be prepared to deal. And some works means just years, in a step by step practice.

A really long Tarot reading.That may happens.
So the size of a reading is to present the best I can, and also because I don't bill just for some specific ritual, but for a goal for each one suggested. Sometimes a ritual will lead to another, may need to be repeated for a time, add more others, etc. Talking about the learning path, is always a good practice to ask to the spirits I'm calling what's their suggestion or even they do by themselves, so I have to move to another area and usually that is by me only.  For sure I always notify my clients the possibility for billing for something more when and only I found (and clear explain why) such thing will be really out of any previous measures. Until today, never needed such thing BUT I need to notify the possibility and at same time, I'm very glad and give thanks at some very extreme cases when my older clients offered by themselves additional values like a big gift as they recognizes all the additional works done.

The size of a reading for sure is not all. It’s the contents that matters.
A funny aspect, is when I'm doing revisions of the text trying to make it short, and the result is to add even more material. LOL...

As a personal example, sometimes I paid for readings to myself, as I like to have another opinions and so I received formal readings from people I respect a lot, Many was like some phrases and others also was a bit large. But that was all Ok too as they knew who I was and didn’t need so much explaining.
To repeat, I like to have another opinions. I’m not at some magic forums just to cheap talk or teaching others, but to listen and learn with many people I respect a lot. So I often check what I’m doing, use different oracles and ask for opinions. This is just because I’m human like your, and no matter I have near zero faults at readings for more than two decades, does not means I see all and does not means my opinion and experience was the better, but I'm sure about what I have seen.
Someday I expect to find something I really don’t know how to deal and need to learn and I’m humble to say this: someday I will be wrong too, it’s part of our spiritual and magic learning too.
I got cheated too many times mainly due my compassion, a hard learning under tears and blood.

When I dream of fairytales
Art by Elisabeth Zartl - Austria
By other side, we see readings so much generic, even in the right way, but lacking more information. Not a public critic, just an opinion and with respect to the ones who are able to present very short and precise replies. I just need to talk a lot sometimes and the same way, I see people also deserve more comments accordingly their experience.
For sure, in a normal reading, I don’t need to add all such material, just I like to do and when I can to make it for guidance, I do it.
May be with time I will learn to write more using less words or just make my work so specific so people don’t need so much talking.

I stopped to do live readings a long time ago, this still is a possibility for something like a local “day of readings” when someone hire me to do something like 8-10 readings in a day, one each hour or less. I had in the past 30 minutes readings for an entire day too. It’s very interesting. as I did it in the past, and is a matter of someone prepare a group, care of all expenses and the needed proper place. Usually that are nice spiritual times too as I need to opens up myself for a lot of people, including public talk for a group.

When I talk live, I really talk fast, and this is what I write in a normal reading. This one so big I’m citing at the top of this article is near the same as talking near two hours with someone who I was in need for that and the final text is a resume of that.
For sure, I edit and review my texts to shorten it as cited and too often I add more! 
But for live readings, I found 30-40 minutes use to be the needed for a reading. I can talk even just some 5 minutes at the Extreme Method and present all needed info. Each case is different for sure. Sometimes I will talk 20-30 minutes just about one card or in a brief about the personal numerology.
So when I start writing and expanding what I see to put all that ideas into words, the results may become even such big writings.

Something important to note, because the title of this article, and for sure of interest to anyone doing readings, live or not, and is a common problem with some people who does not respect professional work. I'm talking about a personal reading. Be a live talk or by e-mail as I do. The problem is some people just try abuse and want to ask about everyone in the family, relatives, friends, their company busines and etc. For sure your relationship or if the reading is about your job that is Ok. But add more specific to make a favor to others no. That is always abusive. If you go to a doctor, you pay for each one the doctor will look for. Ok? A formal reading is the same. Many readers are abused this way and that is a shame.

To add some information about the way I do my readings. And how I work to people at any place in the world. (I live in the south of Brazil so get the idea) To be clear, the last personal reading I remember was some 3 years ago for a closer friend. For sure I'm not the only doing this.  
First I'm on my own vision at start. When someone ask a reading I will see the person question or life with my own inner vision. This is personal and very related to my experience in life. Also a reason at forums I reply to someone and cite I'm under my vision. Be sure I don't use any oracles for that.
The same reason I say nobody is invisible at magic. Be a normal person or someone using a nickname in a forum. Always there's a connection to the one who posted a comment.
Second, despite my vision, and to remember I say I'm not perfect, I will call the oracle, the Tarot (or Runes, I-Ching, etc) and also call for the spirits vision too.
Third, I always evoke other spirits to work with. That start with the angels/deities related to the area, plus the client guardian angel (is always neeeded to ask persmission to enter at the person's world). And as needed, any other angels/spirits/daemons related to the question. All they will add information about the questions.
And for sure, all this add to my own vision for sure and I have to measure that.

The most important is to present the needed reply and when I can add information to the client think about, learn as possible and receive suggestions for their lives become better and with knowledge about what’s happening and coming at their personal path.

Changes in the Tarot Readings

Changes in the Tarot Readings

(Portugues: Use o botão Translate no lado esquerdo da tela)

(Edited due other changes.)

Seat and let's me talk for you.

Once I read something like this:
When you are in front of a Master just ask:
- What to do.
Nothing else is necessary.

With time and personal experiences, I observed more and more I just talk what I see.

As I talk what I see also I observed people and their needs and the ways I can work with that.

Not all people are at spiritual paths. Most are just at normal lifes, have a company, or deal with their homework, or are at the school, whatever.

I'm not here to say you must follow a spiritual path.
But I'm sure anything you do, at some time will be your own path and this is a kind of being spiritual too.
Whatever happens, someday any people will find a main energy ruling life. 

So I did some changes in the Tarot readings I do.

As I work for guidance, at any reading I'm looking first who you are, your path and what to do about.

Then I will look for your questions and others life's areas.

But not all people are after all that information about self-knowledge areas in the same way many just want a guidance for their life or companies.

With time, I have commented more and more, so this make difficult to work with, as not all people are after all that material.

For example, when I comment about numerology, I will make more than a map of your life, but add a lot of information about many areas with suggestions and examples for each case and all that inside a Tarot reading.

And the Tarot part, may goes further a lot about questions and aspects related I'm exploring.

The result is too much work so I need to make some adapt to do it better.

Choose what you need

My readings are never limited to how many cards I will be using, as I do a kind of talk with the angels and spirits called to the reading work. 

The Standard Tarot/Oracle reading.  
I comment the oracle parts, so it's more objective and focused on the practical aspects. 
I will be discussing your questions in many spreads as I found needed to get information and present the best sugestions I can.

The  Tarot/Oracle reading commenting Numerology aspects. 
This is also a self-knowledge reading. 
I will first comment your birthday numerology aspects, who you are and how that works as a map to your life. This is a personal study and I strongly suggest you to print it and save for future study. The material I write here are related to all your life and may be re-read and studied in the future years many times. 
And this material I will use if you do another later readings as I will be commenting about from the previous material you received.
The second part is the Tarot readings, plus I will be pointing what aspects of your personal numbers are acting there and why. 
It's become a long size work and unique to each case. 

Wish this for now help people to find better options.

Business Lunch or a Free Reading Can Be The Same

Time for Business (to some this is what you valuated for)
Art by: Ry Ry Pie Mcfly - Australia

Business Lunch or a Free Reading Can Be The Same

Be a business lunch or a meeting at some bar. I have not seen so much difference. 

I liked a lot the following article as this apply to my professional work as software professional for decades the same way as it happens often working at the occult.

It’s wonderful a good talk with closer friends and the good colleagues we do in life, I say, the ones you are often sharing experiences are always in that closer group all of us have, the valuable ones who shared lives and sometimes help at our needs and we are glad to help too always. Such ones are the ones who deserve and have full merits, we may even have rare contact but they are priceless.
But not everyone is in that list. Oh, you are one famous at you social group? Bullshit. There are a lot of people who we not used to talk often, just some rare contact here and there. And the ones we never talk. 
And what’s happens? Just someone you had rare contact or never talked or had a rare message here and there, came at once claiming why you does not reply fast at messenger and want just asking for free readings and guidance’s at first messages in Facebook, Whatsapp, etc. 
Anyone who work on computer’s area or occultism learn fast that happens often. Some are very rude like citing money is no important, spiritual work must be free and some even want your personal phone number to call you in the mid of night! Usually such ones who say money is not important have a lot and only want free work. Just spiritual parasites or company’s opportunists. 
Others try a sweetie talk at first phrases but suddenly present their real intention asking about an Ex-boyfriend or about how to deal with some complicated high value business matter at their companies or whatever else. Uhm, a Us$ 12 million transaction is never the same as a personal question to deal. Hey? Business talk is business, never but never a personal question and for sure not the same price! I remember someone who really deserved six months with a bad broken leg because that. I just refused to accept the energy they tried to put over me, so that bounced back. For free? No ways! This one more reason we ask a bill to work. If I accepted that cited, it would be my broken leg. Got this? We pay together when accept a work. Dot. 
As about most of other topics you have to think about how much at least a psychologist or a lawyer will bill you for many months. What change is the time we can solve things, not miracles, but each area work in a distinct way. Moreover, that means it is work. Dot. 
Hey, can you fix my company software computers problem for free? Hey! There are public forums where people are voluntary, so do your homework and go there and be respectful to wait for someone who have the time for a suggestion. As any forum, that is voluntary work, learn to be respectful and never expect for a miracle. 
But if that is a private work, one to one, then is easy to realize how often that often need dozen hours just to get what the problem is. Plus a lot more of years of experience to know how to deal with it. If that such ones acting like parasites does not get this, would be better if they jump from a high cliff. 
Disclaimer: I’m not promoting suicide, this is a suggestion to such ones just disappears and let the good ones act.  
To be clear, in the spiritual aspect, suicide never but never is a good act. Better to accept your suffering and work to solve it. At the other side things will be very worse for a suicidal.
Ok, we know life is not so sweet and there are predators and opportunists anywhere. So there are the human predators and we have to learn to keep them at place.  

So, back to the business lunch or a friends meeting in a bar. 
That is a lunch or a bar time, to meet someone, have a good talk and so.
If you want to talk about business, be clear about that. This means to be respectful. What kind of work you expect to receive if you act like a parasite? Be sure that will be very uncomfortable very fast but we know, opportunists do not pay a fuck to be just asshats. 
I had a lot of such calls too. Like a sellers representative of a major computer supplier just trying to get corporate info going to someone even asking for a free source code copy of a Us$ hundreds thousands software I developed for clients who have a giant debt with me. Yes, they try.

At the other areas I work, things are not different. 
Hey “buddy”, I’m at city tomorrow so come meet us to that (a fashion high price) bar at nigh to a party and to talk because I have something (a gift) to you (some people don’t know how to use mail). Like the following article, the bar was 35 miles away, more than one hour driving because traffic, I was expected to pay my bill and… glad to Facebook that show “Mister X replied to N”… I saw messages at other profiles from many other people at the same group like… “hey, very good HE will be there, I have a lot to ask about my problems. He will came with the Tarot cards too?” 
Oh, just one more invite for a bar to do free readings? I was sure before anyways as I have my vision, but just fuck that deserved what was coming. I tried to comment more, but, that one as many others, are happy to buy luxury personal itens found to pay a reading too much. Uhm, that was  too much? Be sure many times that can be a fart in the wind for the times coming but I won't be stupid to say that for free and receive the bad energy to myself. No way! Sorry, as cited sometimes serious business talk means business talk.  
Sorry, in the past, I went to many places like a bar where I even did two dozens numerology readings very specific just to promote my work. An idea from a press guy who I love, but in practice, I had to pay my bill all the times and that never resulted even a client. Zero. 
Same reasons to stop to do personal readings. Too often that became something like a gossip session. I work to people around the world so I can be very objective at what I'm doing.  
And when things are at software area, the place for that is at the office during daily work time.

The ones who valuate what you do will be happy to pay you the same way they are ready to buy a nice car, a jewerly or something else. 

There are the “sweeties” women I found. They called me… Hey, let’s met at such (very good) restaurant (but I would had to pay both bills…) because I like to talk about occultism... in practice they had a problem with an Ex or something else. Just opportunists.

Going to a nice example, I remember a client from another city long time ago, who became a closer friend, she and her husband was directors of a company’s group and replied me once as an offering I did for a discount due their time with me: “No discount. My friends pay me”. She used to refuse discounts. Few companies do that. Wow! We know you are doing more than full work, so keep full price! That is rare. And she often pointed my work to other companies just because she was satisfied. A nice person. Be sure I used to do anything for a better work to her company. 

This remember people who contact you and offer to pay with “references”. That’s the most complete bullshit. Some few invited me to a bar, and even paid the bill. But asked everything about any areas you can think related to their top business. Uhm, I found better bill for my work and pay my drink.

I’m talking about more than three decades of experiences just to be clear if someone got offended.

People who does not respect you and does not respect your time and work NEVER are a good reference. They are ready to pay for a plumber, the phone company, a fashion shoes, whatever. Not for you. 
Keep away and save your time. As cited before, decent people and my friends know I have a life and family too. 
Just to give real credits, as I learned to give thanks for the good and also the bad experiences. I had a lot of results from free work I did for “references”. Guess what? First, that does not paid any of my bills. Second, they always pointed to more people (who had a lot of money too) and also wanting free work. 
So adding to many others people experience who also know such famous ones, that means nothing. Oh, are you famous and want anything for free? You are just one more shit. Be sure such ones are just parasites and will add nothing and even won’t accept if you cite their names as clients. Dot. 
The good ones are good seeds for a better harvest. The bad ones, uhm, they are just solid rock groud, nothing grew there.  

So do me a favor, before being rude with a professional, call the plumber to fix your old house problems (materials included) and say him it must be free. 

At this article, Lyz Rian once more time show very well how important is self-respect as only the ones who deserve you, will get you. 

Here the original article I’m commenting and I wish you read it and many of the others she posted. 

Lyz Rian is working seriously at HR area to help making people and companies better and here once more time she presents great comments to learn: Five Ways To Be Rude And Unprofessional At A Business Lunch.           

Wish you get more form her articles too as we are at XXI Century and is time to better humans relationships and companies acting better.

So, please, do not ask me for free works, be respectfull, that is my job too and you have the link for readings and works here!

Extreme Tarot Readings and Some of The Art Behind It

Image source: www.thejohnniechair.com

Extreme Tarot Readings and Some of The Art Behind It

Sometimes I had the opportunity to do what I call "extreme readings".
That are readings on fly, very short, for a lot of people at minimum time.
I say, something like one or two minutes maximum.
I will talk here isomg the Tarot as a good example. But in practice sometimes I used other oracles, like stones, peanut shells, broken sticks, metallic clips, nails, etc. Well, I developed an ability to read almost anything as an oracle. Someday I will write about how each work really different,  

So I will try to give some information more related to the aspects of doing a good decent reading, whatever the oracle you choose.

For example, you are in a bar, a party, in a park or barbeque with friends, or during a Sabbath,  you have your deck and you start doing readings for people and sunden, they become a lot.
Sometimes that can really became a fury, and many people want listen you.
Trust me. If you never exposed yourself to public, be prepared for an avalanche of emotional requests, business oppinions and with luck, some really very interesting ones. Some of the best people I knew, the ones who really make this a better world, and some of the best students I had I found this way.
And a lot of interference. I wish you already have learned how to work and know to enter in a calm state, focused and not allowing any intrude energy to disturb you. In public places is funny how many spirits you will find trying to make a mess too (read the final comment please). Plus some drunk people. A good time to remember about protection circles and all that stuff. But in such places, your personal protection area must be done silently. Remember this never but never can be a circus show. If you know how to do, you will be able to go unnoticed. This is a good point for you.

In practice, is easy to find people doing minor readings, like 5-10 minutes at many places, like fairs, public events. Many are good readers and many are just learning. In the 90s for a time I used to seat under a big tree in a park and do 5 minutes readings. Was very interesting to know more about people and to do some money.

Lots of tarot (or any oracle) readers may do short readings sometimes taking 5 to 10 minutes.

Many times I did "extreme readings" (1-2 minutes) even for free, and many do this way. Most of times just happens. Ok. Just remember to cleanup yourself after that. This is a reason to bill something. Even a such short work can bring you some very unpleasant attached energies. As shit may happens during a reading, see my final commentary at end of this text.

Note: I'm commenting about situations for doing extreme readings and how work with that. This is not a service I do as the reader will got tired after a session of extreme reading the same as doing complete readings for all that people. It's a matter of results, not time.

The most important to understand is: this is not a competition, it's not a car race, nor a circus show.
Some people who make public mystic fairs are always after someone to do a show for nothing. This is not the case.

The goal is to do a good reading as you will be improving your skills and yourself to be more able to talk less but with a complete overview. 
If you need five minutes it's Ok. May be with time you will need just some seconds, for a direct and clear phrase to answer the client.

Many of us will have such experiences and that are good for training if you are starting.
But some people will expect a lot from you if you are experienced. I say, really a lot. Yes, there are the true interested, but also you will meet oportunists who will give you a lot of headache. So, it's an opportunity to learn to protect yourself.

But what is a short extreme reading as I will comment?
A short reading can be just a phrase, a specific comment, related with the person need. But this have to be complete in my point of view.
And this is my purpose here, to comment some aspects about a doing complete Tarot reading in a minute or two.
See, for "complete reading" in no ways you will talk about the entire life of your client, but the reply must be the needed to the question. 

You are ready for a short extreme reading when you can see at once, just a second, all you need, even to talk for a long time with just one card. But I will keep in the 1-2 minutes limit, Ok?

But what you can see in a "one card reading"?

The reply is simple: You can see all you need related to the question, the why and how, if something is hidden, the for what and even possible incomes.
This start just working with the most basic meaning, the "title" for each card. This is all you need, a simple, basic idea.Then the elements, the numbers, symbols. All that with time become part of your intuition too. And more, the personal wisdom you develop.
And as your skills increase, your capabilitie to understand situations, people, companies, this become a phrase, a complete idea you can understand and express. 

I always use the "one card reading" in my formal readings too, not just for short readings.
I always ask "whats happening?"
In a short reading, I just get the general idea and talk about that.
But in a formal reading this means I have more time to comment on detail.

So I first use just one card to see what is happening and that is the general line I follow and everything I do later will be related with that card.
As for years I do most readings to distant foreign people, by e-mail, I have more time to write. This is the same for a live reading (when I do). So with time I will talk about the whole scene I see.The result can be some pages plus any other information I see is needed to add. For example, may be what I'm talking about is related to some area so I will add information related to that. Some people don't know how care of himselves and need guidance, and this is what I do more, look who you are and what you need to know to follow on your path. But see, for an extreme reading, I have to get the main aspects and go direct to that and trust me, it's possible to add even guidance on that. This is not a matter of cut words, but learn to be direct. 

Some readings may need some extra information, and this is Ok. The "one card" gave the needed information, but the client may have some adventure ahead, a business need, a life change they are on fear to do.  For such cases, I like to put three more cards if I really want to go on some detail already present at the initial card. Usually some variation of the standard "Situation-What to do-Results". Remember this have variations, likem "Past-Present-Future", or "Background-Whats happening-what look for".
Each case is different and you must learn to explore such possibilities as needed. Remember, what is the main information from the "one card" to keep on track. That will guide you about how to explore more or not.

Following. I commented you will be receiving a lot of information.

How are your connection with the world of symbols you get?

This apply to any Tarot reading. And for any other oracle in my opinion.

Each card have a major meaning, and have a lot of symbols drawn on it.
But the real reading comes when you go ahead, use the card as a door to the another realm, the sources of the information you are looking for.
Remember first what is the card title and the ideas related.

Now look about the sources of information:

You will have two kind of information sources coming from the Tarot:
1) The first is what you will see about your client, the person for who you are doing the reading.You will enter at his/her personal realm.
2) The second information is what the Tarot will show you.

Both are present at the card you get. And this can also give you an image at your mind, even a complete movie in a second.
So remember, the Tarot is a connection to his/her private life and will add information/symbols related to what you see.

Please, remember, be respectful. You are entering in the most sacred place: a personal life, so keep your prejudices and personal ideas and interests out!

You must understand, in a reading is the Tarot who will reply. You must process the information, and only when you are able to, comment more about with your study and personal life experience.

But not to judge your client because your personal choices.

What I want to make clear is some of your personal ideas can't interefere on the reading. Your personal preferences, like sports, sex, politics, kind of food, money, prejudices, etc. such conceptions about life style most of times are not the question.This is what charlatans and oportunists do most of times, just try to use the information to cheat or manipulate the client.

Warning: To keep your life appart in no ways means lack of ethics!

Please understand: to help who really want help/evolution is not the same as reply to anyone.
So, you does not have to help criminals or to harm others. I knew many who do this deeply in practice. To help someone to commit a crime make you a criminal too. Dot.

You are free to not reply on such questions. Just say bye.

So lets your reading flow.

How to interpret the "one card" or short spread you are doing?  

The Tarot most of times will be very explicit just at the first card. As I told, is a wide image of what is happening.
So we have the card title and a image or just the idea related like in the Minor Arcana.

So that "one card" give you an image. Wish you developed your intuition, your senses are Ok and you are not affected by the environment. This is important when working for really beautifull clients or some famous people, they can be very boring or attractive. LOL...

Developing reading skills will make it s always clear to understand? No. It will not. 

Even I recognize one and other time that "one card with the whole image" appears really strange, I say, really have no sense at first look. Yes, sometimes I look that card and I say to myself: "What?" This will happens with you, be sure.
So be humble and use a simple method, that is very usefull also to learn more the Tarot. As you feel by experience, ask for one or two cards at once to explain the first one. Easy and simple, just talk to the Tarot "Please, explain the card I received". 
When such strange conditions happens, the additional card may show additional hidden aspects you and sometimes the client are unaware or try to hidden. Or will show the question is really different and offer a complete different point of view. There are many possibilities. And yes, some clients will lie to you and you need to be able to go throught it.

When doing short readings, people may or not have specific questions. Many just want a "message for this time".
And even when they have specific questions, remember most of them are not really able to express what they want or the question is really wide.
Anyways, you must be able to get the whole scene and interpret it at once.

And here again the idea of a door to the other realm, and there are your client world, with everything you can see (or even think was possible) and all the symbols the card is presenting for you.

Now you have what the client asked (or not), how his/her the private life is about that and the Tarot symbols about the situation.

An important note: Be aware, as you develop your skills and your personal wisdom, one and other time the Tarot may give a short and direct reply to you. Yes, sometimes the reply have nothing with the client, but is a message to your personal point of view, or an advice about something you have to know or change. The deeper you goo, this will happens too. So be prepared for a card with a message like "Use your experience to comment about N" or even "Hey stupid, not this way!". LOL... 

So you have all it, let's talk.

First, be respectfull. This is a major rule for both sides.

You will have a client who is ready to listen. Others not so ready due personal concerns, family traditions, etc. They need learning.

And some really don't want to listen, whatever you say. The same for oportunists wanting a lot from you. They will suck you the most they can. Do not waste your time with none of these. Really.

It is always important to say the truth. But be calm about this.
For some people, the truth can be a punch in the stomach so try to look around how you can be gentle and at same time, explain the needed points. 
In this part, not always the Tarot will show you the client is "sensible". You must learn more about people too. 
Anyways, as you make your muscles stronger, you will be Ok when one and other talk bad about you because you "did a bad reading and that was not what they wanted". 

When you are true, it allows people to see you without masks. Are you perfect, without problems like some do for self promotion? Be sure I'm not and I had really a lot of deep good and bad experiences few people had. 

So be clear, who deserve what you do will get it.
You can always talk the truth, just observe how you do it.

Many Tarot teachers talk about to develop your intuition. Practices like meditation will help a lot. Yes, this is very good and needed.
But you also need to go throught the world of the symbols to be able to get the understanding of the scene related with that. Less is more, so work to develop this,

Some magickal areas and religions where they use some kind of oracle call this capability as something like "to receive a ray of light". Uhm, a nice image to describe it.

At the initial years, is common to the reader try to analyze all the symbols in each card. And there are a lot to learn and study. And this can do a lot of mess due too much information.

The Tarot symbols are important to to study, but see all this information as part of a cake you will cook. The result is the cake and you will just taste it without think about all many ingredients and how it was done.
Get this? With time and experience you will start to get the final taste, the meaningful result of the reading.

For example, you can look a picture of people and say at once if it is funny, if they are happy or not and how nice the place is. You does not need to fix your atention to each point of the image. You must learn to see the whole scene.

At the reading you have the client and a scene you received. What comes to your mind first of all?
This first imagery use to be what is really happening, what you need to know.
For sure, as an instant movie, you can talk a lot about or just take the principal.

But how to get there?

Study, knowing well the basics and the main general aspects for each arcana.

There are many spreads that help you to learn the main: how to ask and how to get the information.
Ready layout spreads helps a lot on this, just because you divide the question in parts that make easier to interpret.
Remember, always you use some kind of spread, say to the Tarot do the reply using such layout.

Then ask about the whole question like "whats happening to X?"

Remember to disconnected from your personal opinions and follow with the reading.

Additional final comments:

Even in a short extreme reading you may get any of the possible interferences or strange events.
As I told, Tarot is like a door to other realms.
And what can happens when you open such door? Intruders!
Yes, even in a simple one card reading you can receive undesired interference, like oportunist spirits.
And more of that, when you open the door for the other person realm, may be he/she is being attacked someway. This mean, such spirits/forces my use the connection you did and come after you.

So remember, at start is good to enter in a relaxed state, do a prayer you choose specific for such moment, and ask for protection.
At end, give thanks and release any spirits/forces you may had evoked and close your deck.
If needed, after all do a banishment to assure nothing else is left around.

Extreme readings can be tiresome because of the required concentration. Whatever you choose to do, the best after a session of reading, is to do something to relax, walk, have a time playing music, etc. 
Study, practice. Wish you have fun!
