I’ve been having some doubts about the wisdom of using tarot cards for my readings lately.
My guides seem to want me to just channel them and be done with it, but I’m totally a rebel who doesn’t want anyone telling me what to do. I wonder where Ass Burger Boy gets that from? No need to answer. Rhetorical question.
When I do readings, a nice flow of energy is important, so I will bring very uptight clients through a quick relaxation/connecting technique.
What I haven’t encountered until this summer is the difficulty of reading really old ladies. Deaf old ladies.
First off, the usual things are not going to appeal to them. They are often retired from their jobs, have mostly outlived their husbands, and couldn’t care less about romance.
The only things that might appeal are money and health. Okay, lady, if you really insist on knowing, I can tell you how much longer you will live. Don’t expect me to tell you that you will be living with dementia, because I just cannot bring myself to do that. Yet it will show ever so plainly on the hand.
When the client is deaf-ish, I have to look directly at her, and enunciate slowly and clearly. This takes away from my focus and trance state, to say the least. Then I have to work at it.
When it doesn’t flow naturally, working at it means that the reading is not going to be nearly as good as when it comes easily.
Ask an artist or musician. Most of their best work just came together. Because they were in the zone. The zone where there is no yelling at old ladies.
They didn’t complain, but I gave them their money back anyway.
Next time? I’m just going to say that I’m unable to read them.
I already do that with the crazies.
