Message to Myself

 

I have a beautiful tarot deck that I purchased many years ago.  It’s called The Healing Earth Tarot, by Joyti and David McKie.  I didn’t know anything about tarot cards at the time, but I was very drawn to the image on the front of the box.

I loved looking at the all the artwork on the cards, but I was very unsure about how to get started with tarot.  So I bought some books about tarot in general, and what I discovered really surprised me.

Most tarot decks have 4 suits and what is called the Major Arcana.  The Healing Earth Tarot has 6 suits and the Major Arcana.  So when I read books about tarot, they didn’t seem to be very helpful at understanding a 6-suit deck.

Then it occurred to me that the descriptions of the 4 suits in an old fashioned tarot deck sound a great deal like the first 4 chakras of the human energy body.  The Major Arcana sounds very like the crown chakra with messages coming from your higher self.

So I took a closer look at the Healing Earth Tarot suits.  That’s when I noticed that the additional 2 suits could be related to the Throat and 3rd Eye chakras, while the other 4 suits aligned with the first 4 chakras, as in the older decks.

Finding the correspondence between the suits and the major chakras of the body helped me understand more deeply the messages I was receiving when I used this insightful and artistically beautiful tarot deck.

Once I had a pattern that made sense to me, using this tarot deck took on deeper meaning, as I could connect with the appropriate chakras and ask for more information.  I learned first hand that tarot works by connecting the energy of the person having the reading with the cards.  You have to “clear the deck” between readings to eliminate old energy that no longer applies.

Just this morning, feeling a bit “out of sorts” emotionally after listening to the ice floes on my roof crack and groan all night as temperatures sank to minus 12 degrees fahrenheit, I decided to choose a Tarot card for the day.

I cleared the deck and then held it gently to energize it.

I pulled a card.

I was astonished to see that I had pulled The Sun card from the Major Arcana.  The message of this card was uplifting and inspiring, and came from my own I Am Presence.

Conscious  Celebration

This image is not from the tarot deck, out of respect for the creators of the deck. But it does express some of the JOY that the tarot card represents.  The card and it’s message shifted me into a place of anticipation and well-being.  I’m so glad I followed my guidance to use these cards today.

    Hi Nedda,
    A friend has forwarded your post to me and I was delighted to read your wonderful comments about the first edition of my HEALING EARTH TAROT. I’ve since republished a second edition with two extra Major Arcana and fresh insights in the new hard back book. I hope you’ll enjoy seeing all about it on the home page of my website.
    Warm wishes, Jyoti

    Very cool insight about Tarot. I love some decks and yet don’t know what to do with them according to the ‘book’. But found some wonderful insight from a friend who told me to draw a card and bring a story of the card to the person. For me that simplified it and now your references to chakras makes that even more applicable. Thanks, Mary Helen
