Yesterday during my interview with The Rutland Reader, one of the questions was “What have you learned after all these years of being a Tarot reader?”
My answer could have filled the entire newspaper, but for the sake of brevity, being a healer makes me a better person. Working with the energy of Tarot and Reiki has taught me two main lessons:
1. Ease up on judgement. Most people carry around a tremendous amount of pain and I am amazed that they are able to function as well as they do. Quite often, the strongest women crumble a few minutes into a session because they are simply tired of being strong all of the time. My clients are wonderful people who believe that life is for them, not against — but they still need encouragement along the way.
2. My sensitivity and gender are gifts. For years, I fought against being a sensitive woman because it made me vulnerable and I saw that as a danger. It is hard enough to walk through the world as a woman, and the strengths that come naturally to my sex — empathy, sensitivity and intuition — are often not valued in an aggressive, masculine world. However, doing this work shows me that the feminine is a necessary balance and I’ve continued to heal my wounds around being a woman. It’s also made me a very good healer.
So, thank you for being vulnerable and trusting me with your stories, wounds and joys. All of you have made me a better person and I’m grateful.
The interview will be published in The Rutland Reader within the next week or so. I’ll post the link once available — and if you’re in the Rutland region, you can pick up a free copy in most stores. (image: The Raven’s Prophecy Tarot)
