How to Conduct a Séance with Tarot

girl-using-ouija-boardJust beyond the tip of your senses in a vibrant world, swirling, and illuminated. If you shut your physical eyes, and open you mystical ones you will see the Spirit World, a place that dances with a menagerie of wonders. To some it may seem far, distant and forgotten… but really those who have passed are all around us.

Since I was a child I could see, and sense things that thrive beyond the veil. I would experience the fragments of forgotten memories, the whispers of the past, and those who’ve passed on. When we are children we are awake to these things, they are just as real as anything you can touch with you hands. And for some of us the sight never fades.

Time has gifted me with the ability understand these things. I can go deeper into the mysteries, or throw up my protection to keep unwanted things at bay. But the whispers of the Other Side are always there. Even you can sense it if you open yourself.

As someone who travels the invisible realms with my senses, with Tarot and tea leaves I see messages everywhere. The unfolding of intuition, the blooming of signs and symbols. The sacred dreamtime is always calling to our senses… from the chills up your spine, to the clouds in the sky, the riddles of your dreams, and the songs on the radio.

But have you ever wondered how to talk to the Invisible world?

Maybe you’ve called out to a passed loved one for a message. Or consulted the spirit board to see if some invisible hand could spell out a message. People are curious to what lies just beyond the veil.

The invisible world is always looking for a way to communicate with you. Whether it is your angels, your higher self, the Universe, or your deceased relatives. You just have to find your unique language for communicating, your telephone line!

Conduct a séance with Tarot. Find your favorite deck, the one that works best for you. Look for images that really speak to you. Find a safe, and private place. Set the mood by lighting a candle, and sipping a cup of warm tea.

Burn sage or incense to cleanse the air, and open the door. Ask for the light of protection to surround you, and say a prayer of protection. Call out: I am here to speak beyond the veil. I call on my Spirit Circle to communicate with me.  

Take yourself into a meditative state. Breathe deeply finding the rhythm of your breath. Inhale and exhale counting and falling deeper into you’re the velvety darkness of your inner wisdom. When you feel grounded and open begin to shuffle.

Concentrate on the task at hand. If you want to speak to someone specific then politely ask them to join you in the circle. Maybe place a photograph of whomever you want to speak with on your reading table. And speak their name aloud. If you would like to speak with whoever wants to join you then just be open. Ask that only good join you in the circle.

Now lay the cards out. One by one. Maybe making little fans in front of you. Search for clues in the cards. Look at the colors, the scenes, the images and anything that stands out to you.
What catches you attention?

What seems to stand out the most?

Who appears in the cards?

Look for people in the images. Look for the court cards specifically to identify people. Pay attention to their status, their age, the color of their hair and their sex. See if you can pinpoint a scene that clarifies who they are, and what they did in life.

If you want to use a spread lay out a card for:

  1. The Past of the visitor.
  2. A clue about their life, or passing.
  3. What message they may have for you.
  4. A parting piece of wisdom.

Remember the cards are a language. Ask questions; lay out a card to get the answer. Let the words be the voice of the spirit. Explore, play and see what happens. You may find the séance unfolds all around you… beyond the cards!

Or pick a few people you wish to speak with, and assign them cards. Shuffle the deck (remembering who is who), and lay the cards out. If that those card appear you know they are there, and wish to speak. If they do not, then another person may be working to speak with you.

Sometimes picking a card to represent the person you wish to speak with will help you identify them. You can choose the card before the reading, laying it to the side, and building the cards around it.

Often times when I am reading for someone and using Tarot I will pick up on people in the persons life. When a card distinctly stands out as an individual in my clients life I will meditate on that card… going deeper into its essence to see if it is someone alive, or in spirit.

4 Signs of Spirit Activity

The whole month of October fills me with magic! It awakens some ancient feelings that stir deep within. There is a feeling that pulls me back to center. As the fall settles in we begin to journey inward, reflecting on the seasons passed. Actually, October is the traditional time of year when the veil between the worlds grows thinner. 

When this happens the energetic vibrations begin to shift and things become aligned, making it easier for different spiritual/psychic phenomena to be more detectable. You might find yourself sensing a new presence, or encountering an invisible guest. Or maybe some unexplained events have taken place.

Here are a few ways to detect spiritual activity:

  1. You have an unsettling feeling that some is around you, behind you, watching, or following you. This is often a loved one visiting you from the Other Side, or some other type of spirit whom you aren’t typically aware of. In essence, they are able to become closer to you. Pay attention. The more open you are, the easier it is for them to make contact!
  2. Unusually vivid dreams. Our dreams can be doorways into our inner world, but also the Astral world. You may find yourself slipping into the ambiguous boundaries of the Astral during sleep because the veil is thinner. This can be a very liberating experience. Everyone astrally projects, but during this time of year it can be more noticeable. Where have you been going? What do you see?
  3. Physical changes in your surroundings. When spirits are closer to our realm they tend to manipulate the energy of the area. You may notice lights that flicker, electronics that act up, changes in the temperature, unexplained sounds, and knocking. You may also experience things moving on their own… such as objects, or even doors. Clearly someone wants your attention.
  4. If you notice something 3 x or more, then there may be a message there for you. Especially if it is something that doesn’t typically cross your mind, or stand out. This can be a sign from a loved one or guide.

These are just a few things you might notice. They are not unique to this time of year, just more common.

Have you had any strange, spooky… October activity?
