Cue Cards

Most people think of tarot as a method of looking into the future and finding answers to questions about situations. This is the most common use of tarot.

Here are a few other uses to consider. I use them as a way to transmit reiki, so that when a person is getting an insight into the question, they are also receiving some reiki energy with that answer to help heal and empower them in their choices.

If you are writing something and you need a fresh insight or idea, pull a card or a few cards to jump start your writing. It can be a great source of inspiration, because it is bound to stir things up.

For life coaching or relationship coaching, the cards can play a role in guiding the conversations and the insights. They can be used to facilitate dialogue. For example, to draw a few cards to identify strengths or weaknesses that need to be addressed. They can prompt examinations of relationships and motivations from different angles.

As a thought for the day, a great aid to meditation and reflection. Let your mind discover all kinds of meanings of each of the cards, just the first or most obvious interpretations. Stretch your mind.

These are just a few of the other ways of using the cards that most people do not think about.

In the best sense, they can prompt us, and give us cues as to our next best move.
