During a Tarot Date with me, the best thing to do is open up and trust me. Lately, I seem to be meeting clients who have a hard time doing this. They say they trust me, they say they want the guidance, but when I ask them questions, they immediately shut down. It has become such an issue that I think we need to BLOG about it.
When you come to see me for a Tarot Date, one of the first things I say is that I can't read minds. So, if I ask a question... it is imperative that you respond. For example, I recently asked someone if they believed they deserved love. My client sighed and tilted their head, but that was the extent of his answer. That simply won't work because I need to know if I am reading your cards correctly. That's why you pay me!
The other day, I asked a young woman if she had children. She said nothing. However, her friend nodded that the client did have kids. I then asked the client if she was demanding to the point where the kids feel over-whelmed and pressured.... She shrugged and her friend nodded in agreement. After a few more exchanges like this, I finally gave up. I looked at the client and asked her to switch seats with her friend. I said, "Lover, switch spots with your friend, she'll participate." The client and her friend laughed, thank goodness. But why would you pay someone (me) $50 for a 30 minute reading and then not participate or confirm that I am on the right track?
I understand that some people are deeply introverted. I understand that others are just shy. And I understand that many others are taken off-guard by the information I provide. But at the end of the day, I need my clients trust me and open up to me. I need you to have faith in the process and allow me into your life.
How do I handle this type of reading? First, I try comforting the client and try to ease their nerves. If that doesn't work, I try to make them laugh and loosen up. If that fails, I stop the reading. I stop the reading because it takes two to Tarot. I try to be kind and polite in my approach and it usually works. I have never had anyone just accept the reading to be over. Every time it has happened, the clients asked to continue and started participating. But in the back of my mind, I think of how much appointment time was wasted in the process.
So if you come to me for a Tarot Date, please open up. Please allow me into your life. And please participate in your reading. If you are uncomfortable during this process, please tell me. I would rather spend time talking you through that than trying to pressure you to respond to fundamental questions. There is no need to hide or be afraid because I am here to help you. My only concern, as your Tarot Reader, is to bring you to your ultimate happiness.
