Most of you that follow my blog do so for my daily readings, which I have taken a short break from. I do plan on getting back to those this Sunday evening however. I try to provide not only the meaning the author of the deck provided but also my interpretation of the card and it effects on the day. I know that at times my entries tend to be long and wordy, even willing to admit that at times they may be hard to read. But I feel that it is always worth the read in the end.
I’m going to let you in on a little secret on how I do my readings. I use Reiki on myself and the cards before I do a reading. Since I started doing this I have found that not only am I far more accurate but that my energy isn’t depleted after I do a reading. Anyone who has ever done readings knows the feeling of being completely drained after a reading or a series of readings. There are some people who want readings that just want to deplete your energy to start with. Then there are those times when as a reader we think we are Superman and decide that we can do marathon readings with no break and end up feeling nearly dead.
I figured out that lesson out a few years ago. I was doing a fund raising psychic fair to help a group obtain the money needed to become a 501(c)3 organization (non-profit). This was a 2 day event and I offered to help both days. First of all it was a 90 minute drive one way from the event to my house, so I needed to make sure that I had enough energy for that. Then it started later in the morning but went until 8:00 pm. So after the first day I felt tired but that was to be expected. However, after the end of the second day I was so exhausted that I slept for 14 hours straight that night and then had to rest/sleep most of the next week. I knew that I was pushing myself too hard and putting out too much of my own energy. After that event I decided I needed to change how I approach doing readings.
It was during a meditation state that the solution to my problem was presented. During my meditation the goddess Morrigan showed me that I was to Reiki myself and my cards before I started reading to ensure that it was not my energy that was being used but universal energy that was being used. Because universal energy cannot be depleted so there is enough to do what needs to be done and then some. So the next day I started doing Reiki to my cards and noticed that not only did my energy not drop as much but also that I was gaining more insight into what really needed to be said.
A few months later I was invited to do another fund raising psychic fair and I took the offer. A lot of the people from the first fair remembered me and wanted me to read them again so I ended up being booked for that fair. At the end of the two day fair I was not tired because of the use of Reiki on myself and my cards. There was no need to sleep for 14 hours or spend the next week in the middle of a fibromyalgia flare. I had plenty of energy and was able to help many people and raise a lot of money for the organization I was helping.
So when I start back up doing my daily, weekly, and monthly readings please know that a lot of the insight comes from Reiki energy. And if you decided to book a personal reading with me that I am not feeding you what I think you want to know but what Reiki energy is telling me you need to know through the cards.
