Because I Have the Exact Same Dreams and Desires That You Do
I’ve also experienced the exact same level of frustration, overwhelm, and lack of self-confidence that you have as well.
It just seemed that no matter what I did or how hard I tried, I just couldn’t “get it”, you know? And all of that left me feeling constantly unsure and insecure about my choice to become a professional Tarot reader and my ability to do the job.
I kept wondering if I was making a mistake, if I made the wrong choice, if there was something else I should have been doing.
I didn’t know what to do and and a result I was a hot mess for a very long time.
The GOOD NEWS is that I don’t feel that way any longer and I’m going to teach YOU how not to feel this way any longer as well!
Part of My Struggle Was That I Just Didn’t Know Enough
The BIGGEST PROBLEM I faced with the Tarot was that I taught myself. Online Tarot classes weren’t yet a ”thing” and I didn’t know anyone who was teaching local Tarot classes at the time, so I had limited options.
As a result, I began to teach myself. In the process I became OBSESSED with Tarot books and started purchasing and reading every single book I could find. Guess how many? I’ll give you a hint, the number has a 4 and a 2 in it.
Did I mention that I also purchased over 50 DIFFERENT TAROT DECKS?
Yeah, I became a total head-case.
I was desperately searching for that “magic bullet” that would help me to quickly memorize the cards once and for all and give me the confidence, clarity, and skillset I needed to read the Tarot like a PRO!
NOTHING helped. At the end of the day I STILL had NO idea what the FUCK I was doing.
Because Learning the to Read the Tarot Isn’t Random Like That
To be completely honest, I never found that magic bullet. I struggled for TEN LONG YEARS before things began to change for me.
During that time, I never felt confident with my readings no matter how much I loved them or loved doing readings.
But if we think about it, how could we though?
How many career-fields do we see today that have highly successful “self-taught” employees or practitioners?
Sure, you can find some people who could figure out how to do a few things on their own but certainly not enough to run a corporate office or build and launch a successful business!
When we become self-taught and then decide to stay in that position, we’re actually putting ourselves in the position of always being behind the 8-ball.
There’s a Whole Lotta Info WE NEED to Know
To become a professional Tarot reader, build a thriving client-base, create a lucrative and lasting income, and live a lux-lifestyle…there’s a whole lotta info you have to know, not only about the Tarot, but also self-development, mentoring, transformation, Spirituality, business, marketing, and so much more!
The Tarot is NO different than any other professional career field.
In order to become a competent and skilled professional Tarot reader and make your dreams come true in the way you desire you need the right education and the right guidance. Period.
Here’s why being self-taught doesn’t work…
Your Lack of Self-Confidence Stems Directly From a Lack of Education
Because I struggled for so long my lack of ability was reflected through my lack of self-confidence. How can you be confident and feel good about something when you’ve had ZERO technical training and guidance?
There were times I could definitely see in my client’s face that they would have a certain amount of apprehension or concern whenever I’d read for them. They might not have exactly known what was going on, and it might have appeared to be a great reading, but deep down, I believe my clients could sense my shortcomings.
On top of that, I’d always end my sessions feeling uncomfortable and guilty like I was a fraud or something. I had a LOT of trouble making eye contact, making conversation, and I wasn’t very quick to ask for the money or to book their next reading.
When we’re not confident, we don’t play full-out.
When we don’t feel good about what we’re doing we don’t shine! We’re acting and working from a detrimental stand-point. And all of those negative feelings can quickly well-up and deep-six your new brand-new career before you even get it started.
Our Challenges and WTF’s Are Related to Not Having the Right Education Source
In another light, you might be someone who’s not necessarily new to the Tarot. Maybe you’re someone who’s already taken a Tarot course and has an established business.
Maybe you’ve been through several different Tarot courses but you feel something’s still not right. You’re still struggling, still frustrated, still overwhelmed, and still not very confident.
Just because you’ve taken one Tarot class or ten doesn’t necessarily mean they’ve been the right ones for you.
You just might not have found the right educator with the right formula that can reach deep into your soul, flip that Tarot switch, and set your ass on fire with the cards!
It’s ALL of that “not-knowing” that leads to the frustration, overwhelm, and ultimately the lack of self-confidence that you’ve been experiencing. It isn’t anyone’s fault.
You Don’t Know What You Don’t Know
When you’ve been self-taught or haven’t taken the right course it can leave you with giant gaps in your “Tarot-Knowledge Bank.”
That emptiness leaves you to operate on only part of the story because you don’t have the big-picture of what the Tarot is.
Without a proper education or proper perspective, you don’t know what’s missing.
You don’t know what you don’t know.
That’s a terrible place to be because we can only see what our current struggle is, not what’s contributed to it.
What began as this amazing soulful experience and the career opportunity of a lifetime has now spiraled into becoming a high-holy nightmare. And dig this, it’ll only get worse.
We begin to micro-focus on things that appear to be the issue, but in reality, are miles away from the actual problem.
We Can Become Consumed With Things That Don’t Really Matter
For example, I periodically conduct surveys asking my students and followers what their current Tarot challenges are.
99% of Participant Report They Must Achieve the Same Five Things:
+ Immediately overcome their feelings of low self-confidence and not being good enough
+ Memorize all 78 cards, with the key charts, right-side-up and reversed, with 100% accuracy
+ Use and trust their intuition to do their readings with complete confidence and 100% accuracy
+ Identify precisely who the Court Cards represent in every single reading with absolute accuracy
+ Learn to charge what they’re “worth” with ZERO guilt or shame
There were some additional concerns regarding how to focus their energy, create custom readings, how to choose the best Tarot decks, etc. For the most part, my surveys are FILLED with individuals who want ANSWERS, ABSOLUTES, and NO MISTAKES.
Unfortunately, the Tarot Doesn’t Work That Work That Way!
