Telepathic Tarot Readers Demystified is the fifth blog post article in my Tarot Professional Development series. Tarot Readers not only have the knowledge of the Tarot, they also have what they call gifts. They want to know about how to read the Tarot with knowledge, while at the same time using their other abilities.
Instructing a Tarot Reader on how to go about reading the Tarot with knowledge of the Cards is one thing. Advising them on how to use their other abilities during a Tarot Reading Session, is an entirely different matter. For a Tarot Reader to comprehend the importance of reading the Tarot competently, she needs to understand herself first – not just the Cards.
Telepathic Tarot Readers Demystified is first about helping the Tarot Reader to understand herself too. This type of Tarot Reader needs to make the difference between Reading the Tarot with knowledge of the Cards and her other abilities. On top of the ability to read the cards good and proper, the Tarot Reader has ‘intuition’. Some Readers might beg to differ, but everyone has Intuition.
Intuitive Tarot Readers often do not fully understand themselves. They may or may not be fully aware that they are Telepaths. Let us look at what is an Intuitive and at what is a Telepath, so to fully understand ourselves as Tarot Readers. We need to know that there is a subtle difference between the two, so to know if we are an ‘Intuitive’ or if we are a ‘Telepath’.
A Tarot Reader can be both an Intuitive and a Telepath. By the way, some of us Knowledgeable Intuitive Tarot Readers do have many more abilities than Intuition and Telepathy. However, for the purpose of this article, let us keep it simple by first limiting ourselves to Intuition and Telepathy.
Intuition is referred to as ‘Knowing at a distance‘. The Intuitive does not ‘just know’, the Intuitive as a ‘deep sense of knowing – at a distance’. Often, the Intuitive is at a loss to say how she knows something about a person who is at a distance from her, i.e. over the Internet, or over the phone. What follows explains how an Intuitive knows at a distance.
Telepathic Tarot Readers Demystified puts words to being a Knower at a distance. Knowing at a distance is ‘the sense of becoming aware’. The sense of becoming aware is ‘telepathy’. Telepathy is ‘the becoming aware of other people’s thoughts and emotions – at a distance. Many refer to ‘knowing at a distance’ as the ‘telepathic faculty’.
Telepathic Tarot Readers Demystified says that an Intuitive has Telepathic Awareness. Another way of saying Telepathic Awareness is to say the ‘Telepathic Sense’. The Telepathic Sense is part of the seven basic physical senses. Telepathic Awareness has an astral counterpart called ‘clairvoyance’…
Humans are not the only ones who are aware of other people’s thoughts and emotions. Animals also have this ‘instinct’ called the telepathic faculty. Animals can sense emotions or thoughts in humans. The family dog can sense the mental state of its human; what its human is thinking and feeling.
Primitive man could sense the feelings and designs of other men. He could not ‘reason-out’, but could ‘feel’ the ideas and designs of others. This faculty ensured his survival in the animal kingdom as well as in the human community. His woman needed to be more sensitive than he was, to make sure the survival of their newly born infant. For this reason, she could quickly ‘interpret’ the reports sent to her brain by her physical senses. While man wanted to take his time to reason things out. Down through the ages, civilized man lost ‘quick telepathy’ in favor of “receiving and interpreting more complex forms of thoughts and mental states”. This is the acquired faculty of ‘thought transference’.
At the unconscious level, everyone receives non-spontaneous waves of thoughts from other people. In the average person, telepathy is not spontaneous anymore. It is difficult for us to interpret correctly thoughts and feelings received from other people. In the astral telepathic sense, we need to ‘switch-on’ the astral telepathic sense of receiving thoughts and emotions of others; it will not work when it is ‘switched-off’.
How a person could receive or send telepathic thoughts and emotions was a mystery to primitive man. It just came naturally to him, just like breathing. It took science a long time to figure it all out. However, today, an average high-school student has the basic knowledge to understand this.
Telepathic Tarot Readers Demystified says let us not go off the deep end explaining what Telepathic Awareness is! Let us keep it simple. We do not have to be an Einstein so to understand or use Telepathic Awareness.
All we need to do when the telephone rings, is to pick up the receiver and say hello! And voilà! We do not even think about it much; we do not even need to believe that we can actually hear the thoughts and emotions of the person at the other end. Yet, we just hear them anyways! This goes to the telepathic sensing of ideas and emotions; either we are aware of it, or we are not.
For the brainiest who absolutely needs to understand how a person can receive and send telepathic thoughts and emotions, suffice it to say: it is all ‘because of brain power’. “Every manifestation of mental and emotional activity is the result of an action by the brain or nervous system, manifesting in the form of a vibration”.
When there is brain activity, “there is the consuming or transformation of a substance which the nervous system is composed of. There is no destruction of this substance, but rather, a ‘transformation’ of it. When this happens, there is a transformation of the energy released by thought and emotional process. In the same way as electric current is released into space in the form of wireless waves, our brain releases thoughts and emotions in the form of wireless waves. These waves come into contact with certain forms of apparatus, and are transformed into forms of force, and subsequently get registered and interpreted by a wireless operator”, Swami Panchadasi.
According to Swami Panchadasi, in his book ‘Clairvoyance and the Occult Powers’, ideas and emotions get sent out into the world – in the form of telepathic waves that go out in every direction. Along the physical realm, when a ‘sensitive’ person (an Intuitive) picks these waves up, they are then reproduced and re-transformed into thoughts and mental states of the same types that originally sent them forth.
Telepathic Tarot Readers Demystified describes the Clairvoyant-telepath. Clairvoyant-telepathy (or astral-telepathy), is a transmission of force along the astral plane. Unlike the waves of thoughts and emotions traveling in the universe until they come into contact with a Physically Sensitive, Clairvoyant-telepathy is “your astral-self extending itself out until it actually touches the astral-self of another person, and actually feels the astral activity there”. Whereas ordinarily, a physical telepath (the Intuitive) – simply knows at a distance.
Telepathic Tarot Readers Demystified says: read the Tarot Cards with knowledge. It is not because an Intuitive (a Physical- telepath) and the Clairvoyant-telepath has a gift that it would go to say that she does not need to learn the Tarot. To the contrary, both need to acquire knowledge of the Tarot so to be able to call themselves a Tarot Reader. It is by first reading the cards themselves – with knowledge of the cards, can a Tarot Reader honestly state that she is “Reading the Cards”.
Before accepting any money from a client, the Telepathic must first tell her client that she will not only read the Tarot for the client, but will also add her Telepathic abilities to the reading. If she does pick up other things telepathically, during the Tarot Reading, she would be well advised to tell her client this. This way, there is no confusion. If she does pick up things telepathically, the Reader needs to first confirm it all with the Cards. It is by confirming it with the Cards, she is making sure to keep her own ego out-of-the-way.
In addition, a telepathic Tarot Reader would do well by placing a Clarifier Card on top of the card she is looking at when she gets Telepathic thoughts and emotions. She may want to enlarge her spread for clarification purposes. She can also start an entirely separate and distinctive spread – just to clarify what she is picking up telepathically. After all is said and done, the mandate given by the client is to read the Tarot Cards.
