"Major" Arcana cards are your friends!

Today Iris and I explored some of the reasons the Major and Minor arcana (Trumps and Pips) have been separated by tarot readers.  We discussed how "the Journey of the Fool" came about and how it does not apply to everyday life and valid readings for an average client. We also explored how the trumps are made out to be so much more important than the pips. We hope this helps you become less intimidated by the major arcana by seeing how each card is as valuable as the other in its own right.

 
Thanks for being here! We are here to show you how.

Tarot cards and the four elements

Iris and Sharon asked me to explain the use of elements in the Tarot pips (minor arcana). We address important questions like : 

"Why are the elements connected to the pip suits?" 

"How do they relate to each suit?"

"What extra info can we draw from our cards using these concepts?"

If you are wondering "What the heck does this even mean?" or if you think you already know how to make use of this incredible tool,  join us in our discovery of how to become a better reader! 

Thanks for being here! :-)

Rid yourself common of tarot superstitions

Tonight on a very special episode of easy tarot lessons, Iris and Sharon reveal their tarot superstitions and how they overcame them.  Really! 

We had some fun talking about what superstitions we fought with while trying to learn tarot - those we discarded and those we kept.  We talked about why we kept some of them due to personal reasons and why we discarded those that interrupted or impeded our readings. 

Learn about gypsy secrets, pet beliefs, and baseball mitts!  This covers a plethora of beliefs and gives you the ability to understand what superstitions harm your tarot skills.

Aces are Easy! (Various things they can mean in a spread)

Iris was having a problem interpreting the Aces.  She had a hard time getting past the static image of a large hand holding something smack in the middle of the card.  She was also stuck on the traditional meaning of "New Beginnings".  We discussed how to get past the giant hands and really take a good look at the background.  We also looked at the elemental and astrological aspects each card contained. 

 
This podcast is a MUST for anyone!  We demystified the Aces and made them user-friendly.  Be sure to take copious notes!  This lesson goes in depth to help understand the Aces in ways you would never have expected. 
 
Please let me know if you have any questions. I am here to help. Thanks for being here and learning :-)

How to ask better tarot questions

One of the biggest problems with tarot readings people get is that the clients are unsatisfied with the results they get. If they were as thrilled as we all like to think our clients are they would be coming back again and again. Repeat clients are the ONLY WAY to make a real living reading your cards and the only way to get REPEAT CLIENTS is to give them information so valuable, precise, and accurate that they come back and demand more.

To get this level of detail and precision you must ask better questions. This presents the problem of knowing what makes up a great reading and what it takes to get there. Your clients have not been trained. Fortunately, you have been. Your clients have been programmed by bad movies and bad advice from non-tarot readers, and even bad readings by amateurs. They are not experts in knowing what to ask and how to get the most out of their readings. This is why we made this specific podcast. 

Spend an hour with us and think about the concepts here. This is not a note-taking lesson: this is one that requires you spend some serious time contemplating the nature of your job and your interaction with your clients. If you do this: if you take some time alone (often) and really dig deeply into your interaction with your clients you will master a skill so few readers ever do—and one essential to being a god among mortals. You will learn to hear what people are saying behind their words and how to get people to open up so that you can better help them find the answers they need to their dilemmas.

How to get TONS of clients (to practice on)!

 

Iris wanted to know where to find people to practice reading on, as her family "does not believe in all of that rubbish" and she does not live in a major city. So I sat down for 78 minutes (wow! That is like "forever!") and we went over the psychology of getting people to read for, how to do it, where to do it, and then after that we went on for another 20 minutes on even more about where and how and why this all works.

This is MUST KNOW information and easily worth the cost of a private lesson (currently $90 for an hour), but because it is free you should grab a pen and take COPIOUS notes on all of this. Plenty of highly detailed analysis of why this all works and explicit instructions on how to do it. That and a few really crappy jokes but we couldn't help laughing. DO THIS. Then write me and tell me what you have questions about. Thanks for being here.

How can you trust your intuition?

How can you trust your intuition when using your cards? how do you know that you are *right* and not just making things up? This is one of the most pressing questions every serious tarot reader asks themselves at some point in their studies, and the smart readers ask this often. 

Blind faith in intuition to magically make everything work is a recipe for disappointment and disaster sooner than later. Your intuition needs to be developed and shaped with practice and experience, just like your hands, arms, and legs. No one is born knowing how to walk and talk. We learn by trying and doing, and those of us who have a TEACHER or a coach (think gymnastics here please) end up a hell of a lot more skilled than people who try to figure everything out for themselves. This is why I have a course, and this is why I give away free lessons. No one should try this at home untrained.  

In this lesson I sat down with a lovely student (Iris) and we discussed the various things that need to come into play for you to be able to reach the point of trusting your intuition when you are out there in the real-world giving real readings to real people who expect accuracy and detail. Forget any crappy readings you have had in the past. This lesson is where the rubber meets the road. THIS is what separates the charlatans and amateurs from competent tarot readers. Best of all we get this done in around 30 minutes. Please let me know if you have any questions. I am here to help. Thanks for being here and learning :-)

tarot significators (what they are, how and when—and why— to use them)

Hey everybody :-)

Significator cards are an important part of great tarot readings but there are things you need to know in order to make them work for you. We spent about 40 minutes today on this topic (it was only supposed to be 15 minutes but there was more to discuss than we thought). You don't always need to use significator cards in your tarot spreads but they are incredibly helpful when you don't have a solid connection to the thing you are reading about (your spread protagonist for example) or you have to give a complex reading on a situation involving several parties.

In today's lesson we cover (in great detail) how and when and why you use significators and how to get the most value from them. We also uncover a few pitfalls most readers hit at one point in their experience. This is a super-important lesson so I hope you will take notes and try all of these techniques out for yourself.

ADVANCED LESSON: Pre-spread mental walkthrough (what is it anyway?)

Sharon sat down with me again today and we yapped about pre-spread mental walkthroughs and how they transform ANYONE from an amateur reader into a real professional. Blind readings were invented by the devil (a stupid, arrogant, lazy devil) and you should never do them. The PSMW (by Dusty White :-) is the remedy for whatever ails you.

Full instructions on the PSMW (what it is, what it does, how to do it, why and how it will make you better than any other tarot reader you ever meet) are in Advanced Tarot Secrets. Seriously: if you do not have that book you are stuck in the primitive "stone age" of tarot reading techniques with the other cavemen and women. 

Anyway, this lesson is an overview of what it is and why it is essential for you to understand what you are asking about for your client and exactly how to get them exact, specific, highly detailed, ACCURATE answers. And it is free! :-)

Let me know if you have any questions at all.

Withholding information from your clients (should you?)

Clients withhold information from us all of the time, but should we withhold information from them? 

During a reading we often see things that we do not like. This is personal bias and should be treated as such. Your opinions have little to no place in a reading. When we are having a chat with a friend or gossiping about someone we can be as biased and opinionated as we are (or are not) every day. But when we are reading for a client (or a friend, family member, etc.) we have a responsibility to tell them what we see. 

In today's lesson we confronted a real-life reading by an unnamed student because it made for a great object lesson. How would YOU have handled this situation? It is easy to sit on the sidelines but when we are facing a client and our cards are revealing information we would rather not share we have to decide if this is what we want to do for a living or not. If we were doctors and we did not ever tell our patients that they had cancer, or a bad kidney (or whatever) we would be sued for malpractice. If we were a mechanic and we told our customers that their cards were "just fine" and they broke down at night and got robbed at gunpoint the next evening we would be blamed.

In today's lesson Sharon and I talked about whether we should give the whole answer, even if it was a hard one (i.e. someone cheating) and about how we don't have to answer questions we are uncomfortable with or for people we don't "click" with. This is an important lesson you should listen to and draw your own conclusions. Please comment if you have ANY questions on this at all.

Every tarot card in your deck has a "sign" and in today's lesson we show you how to find out what that sign is and how to understand it in the context of a reading. Lori sat in on today's lesson and helped out. We looked at the basics of astrology (qualities and elements) so that we could better understand WHY and HOW each of your tarot cards has a special and unique meaning. Nowhere else (that I know of) is the astrological value of each tarot card laid out in simple, factual, and carefully verified detail.

All of this comes from The Easiest Way to learn the Tarot—EVER!! at the back of the book, and if you ever have any questions you are always welcome to email me and ask. I will do what I can to help you master all of this. 

Understanding the astrological sign of each card in your deck is super easy once you know how (listen to today's lesson) and it involves looking at the image and understanding what the action is that is taking place in the image. Think of this as "additional information" to add depth and rich detail to your readings. It does not replace your intuition: it enhances it. Thanks for being here :-)

Let me know how I can help make this even easier for you.

The Celtic Cross spread is an overview spread that shows you all parts of a situation in ways that smaller, less coordinated spreads can't. When you learn and master this amazing spread (and all of its hidden spreads, patterns, and themes) you can get 3-5 times MORE INFORMATION than you normally could. This is three to five times more info than any other tarot reader you meet.

Also, you can VERIFY the accuracy and poignancy of the CC spread *before* you open your mouth and start making predictions. This saves you time, sanity, and your reputation. I sat down to discuss all of this with Andrea today. We went 30 minutes, which was a bit longer than the new format, but it is good, solid information and a reminder to learn and use the Celtic Cross for most of your spread questions.

This starts a new series of podcasts designed to help you stretch and grow your abilities in anticipation of professional training. Thank you for being here with us. I am ALWAYS here to answer questions. Just email me.

How to double your accuracy in a reading

The main focal point of this lesson is on opening up cards and "clarification cards." We cover when to open up cards and how to do it to get the results you want (enhanced clarity, greater accuracy and much more detail. To this end I covered a lot of ground on what to do before you get to this point (needing to open up cards) and how to make the most of it when you do.  

Other things covered in today's free tarot lesson include what spreads not to open cards and how to silence the inner doubt and nagging voices inside your head while giving a reading. All in all these techniques (just in this one free lesson alone) will help you double your accuracy and detail level in a reading. 

 If you are serious about mastering the tarot I have extended the $5/week ($2.50 per 90-minute video lesson essentially WITH forums, study groups, study buddies, and community access) special for a while due to a previous screwup with the sign-up process. You do not want to miss this.This is a$3,000course that you can grab for $220, and you only have to pay $5 a week (no  downpayment required). 

 If you have any questions just post them here in the comments section.

Thanks for being here.

How to cast more accurate spreads: pre-spreadwork and shuffling

Shuffling is an underrated art in tarot readings. Too many people assume that it is done a few times or that you hand your cards over to your client (as if they will know what to do with them). This all sounds nice in "New Age tarot 101" class but it is in fact a crippling way to remove any accuracy or precision from your readings. In fact, if you like random cards that have NOTHING AT ALL to do with your client's question or circumstance, this is the method for you.

Alternatively, we can do our pre-spreadwork properly (shuffling, focusing, talking to ourselves/our client, listening for the "ding" . . .) and by doing this we can get MUCH BETTER answers. And that is what this lesson is about.

There is no way I could cover all of this in 40 minutes so this is just a shot of information to improve your skills "right now" with an invitation to come learn ALL of what you need to know to become a kick-ass tarot reader at our academy. Right now we have a $5 special: $5 a week for three lessons/week (two 90-minute video lessons and one 60-minute audio), and forums, and study groups, and study buddies. You really should check this out: http://www.easytarotlessons.com/members/sign-up-for-the-course-here/

It will change your life.

Anyway, thanks for being here. Please post any questions.

Court cards and Froot Loops!

In today's lesson we take a new look at court cards. April is a talented reader with no small amount of experience, but court cards were presenting their usual problems, so we went ahead and dove into that. Along the way we covered how to get your client to communicate more effectively and honestly with you, what types of psychic abilities you have, and why Toucan Sam is so much cooler than the Trix rabbit.

 

We closed out with a new exercise to help court cards make sense in any situation and how your practice with your cards will make your mediumship capabilities skyrocket.

How to read "the scary cards"

Dyan is new to the tarot but she had some advanced questions. This lesson was just going to cover how to read without bias but we went in several different directions. Over the course of this lesson we covered various ways to understand court cards. Mostly I was pointing her to the existing set of podcast lessons specifically dealing with court cards. I also gave her a quickie overview of the method we use in the academy to instantly understand court cards in any spread.

From here the lesson just squirreled all over the road. We had a short discussion on reading for animals, fish (whales specifically), and how this corresponded to reading for people. I also ended up covering various aspects of reading on a professional level, even if you are new. A few admonishments of how to correctly practice and the lesson has run 40 minutes.

This was a much different lesson. I hope you enjoy it. Thanks for being here :-)

Exercise 4: How to do it

Dawn was having trouble with exercise four from The Easiest Way to learn the Tarot—EVER!! Going from one card to another in a linear-time fashion can be problematic if we are doubtful on the meanings of cards, or worse: if we have memorized fixed meanings for each card.

 

So, in today's lesson we took time to go through exercise 4 several times, slowly and carefully working our way through various possible meanings. Along the way I showed Dawn how to better understand the cards in her deck, and as a last minute bonus we covered a special technique on how to master court cards in any situation. I hope you enjoy this lesson. It is simple but has great value. Thanks for being here :-)

How to blend cards in a reading

Vera was having issues with seeing overall patterns and the hidden inferences in the spreads she casts, so we sat down and worked through this. In today's free audio lesson we look at how cards interact in a spread.

This is a very deep subject and one that cannot be covered in-depth in a 30-minute session, but we were able to get to the core issues and do a practice run where we designed an impromptu spread to solve a real-life problem. Along the way we figured out how to overcome Vera's personal concerns (the reason for the spread) and at the same time help her understand the method of blending cards, finding similarities and tensions between cards in a spread to flesh out the deeper answer to the question at hand. This is a powerful lesson and one I hope you will enjoy. It has great information to help you master your cards and become a truly gifted reader. Thanks for being here :)

Real life spread advice: spread accuracy, court cards, yes/no questions

Today's lesson has something for everyone. What happens when you are reading a spread and your bias gets in the way of the message? How can we know when that is happening and how can we stop it? How do we know when we are reading the future versus our current state? What if things change? We need to be able to give ourselves and clients ACCURATE information, not "good for now, until it changes" information. This is what we cover in today's free audio lesson. We also cover a bit more on court cards (we can never seem to get enough of that) and how and when to use small spreads for best effect (yes/no spreads, 1, 2, and 3 card spreads).

 

Today's lesson covers several topics and it lasts about an hour. It covers a lot of ground that will help you become a MUCH better reader by indirectly correcting most mistakes readers make. Good habits come from this lesson. I hope you enjoy it. I will have more free lessons soon. Dusty.

The "this or that spread" in the white book is a handy tool for quickly deciding who to vote for, whether to have pizza or chicken, or what movie will suck less when you are faced with a date-night prospect. We all encounter choices and conflict in life and "this or that" readings are invaluable in helping your clients solve their problems quickly and easily. 

 

The problem is that it gets a bit confusing: with the advent of a "this of that spread" how can we get more information and are we stuck with that one spread? Lori wanted to know what her options were in decision spreads and this lesson covers, in great depth, how to choose or alter a spread to create the best reading to resolve conflicts and make decisions. Of course our cards don't make decisions for us, but like any form of divination we are reaching out to the divine and asking for guidance. YOUR SKILL at talking to the divine (with the help of your cards as clarification devices) will determine the quality of your assistance (to your clients). This means that my job is to help you get better at what you do; hence this lesson.

 

We start off answering the question about this or that spreads in general, and in detail, but then move on to help Lori (and you) get more accurate and precise information from your cards in every reading you do. I hope that you enjoy this lesson and learn a lot. Please post any questions that you have. Thanks for being here :-)

How to ask BETTER questions when casting a spread (so you get better answers)

The quality of the question you ask when shuffling your cards (before you deal out a tarot spread) will determine how clear your answer will be. Too many readers fail to ask a question: They leave it up to their clients to "think about what they want to know" or they just use the exact question their clients ask. As a result the readings they give leave their clients disappointed, and when these readers are tested by government or employment agencies they fail miserably. The primary purpose of THIS LESSON is to help you avoid embarrassing yourself and hopefully prevent you from being sued for fraud. 

You MUST ask great questions if you expect to give answers that have value and meaning to your clients.  It is not a difficult skill, but there are some factors to consider, such as what spread you will be using to best answer that question, and whether this is a preparatory question to get information before you ask your main question, or whether it is a follow-up question, and so on. These are many tiny parts of divination that go unnoticed to the uninitiated, and MY JOB is to initiate you: to help you understand the nature and methodology of divination so that you can then go accomplish your own miracles. I can't do the work for you but I can teach you what I know in ways that make sense so that you can go get your own experiences. 

 

This class is a bit rambly, as it went on for 90 minutes (it was supposed to be 20), but I wanted to help Taura, who is quite new at the tarot, and the chance to get some "free" time with me is impossibly rare so I made the most of it. Please take notes and use the knowledge you will gain from this lesson to make your own readings more clear and accurate. Thanks for being here. If you have any questions please post them in the comments area(s).

Astrology and the tarot - how to use astrology to make your readings MUCH better

Astrology can make your tarot readings more accurate and precise. You don't need to know much at all about astrology to get great results, but the more you do know the more you can charge your clients for the same information. Astrology allows you to see through your clients and their circumstances. It greatly clarifies what your cards are telling you and puts an end to vague readings. With just a little astrology in your reading you can double your skills as a tarot reader literally overnight. In this lesson you will learn how to do that and what to do to become great. Best of all, none of this costs any money at all. You just have to do the work. 

The sound quality on the intro (just 30 seconds) is pretty bad, but after that the recording is exceptionally clear. Please take notes (this information is invaluable) and thanks for being here. Post any questions you have in the comments area and I will do my best to answer them quickly.

Do this and get 3-5 times MORE info from your tarot spreads


Seriously: How to get 3-5 times MORE INFORMATION from the spreads you cast than any other reader you meet.

Today's free lesson is on the exact steps necessary for you to dig deep into a spread and pull out *all* of the information the cards are trying to tell you; not just the surface material most readers accept. This is a long lesson (just over an hour). I was tired and wanted to go 20 minutes, but there was just too much that needed to be said. It is worth making your way through to get the step-by-step techniques, as there are several basic but necessary points along the way that make the difference between a blah reading and a fantastic one.

Roundabout spread questions answered

The Roundabout spread is an amazing tool for your divination and manifestation use. It is second to none in its usefulness to you because of its combination of simplicity, complexity, and raw power. But to non-astrologers it can be daunting and intimidating at first. Andy was having problems with this spread so we sat down for half an hour and worked on understanding this spread. This material is not covered in The Easiest Way to Learn the Tarot—EVER!! or Advanced Tarot Secrets. It's a quick, short lesson that should help bring this spread down to earth and help you dive head-first into it so that you can increase the value you can give to your clients; which increases your tips, and how much they feel you are worth (your rates go up and people happily pay). 

 

The most important part of being a reader is to be correct AND helpful. You don't need to have the answers to every question, or a solution to every problem. Your job is to listen, divine (seek pertinent and applicable information of value to your client), and guide, based on your findings. Then your client can take your advice or not; but that is their choice. Therefore I do my best to help you develop your skills and give you access to better tools that will help you communicate more effectively through your cards. I hope that you find this short lesson helpful, and I am always here if you need help becoming a world-class reader.

 

Don't forget that we have a course that will take you from absolute beginner to adept in ten months (this allows you LOTS of practice time without having to cram your head full of lessons so fast that they do not stick). We only get ONE CHANCE to make *this* life great. Whatever you do, do it sincerely and with gusto. If you are here to learn the tarot, we are here to help you. Thanks for being here :-)

Do spies use the tarot? (Here's how!)

Spies, spying, remote viewing, seeing into the distant past, finding out what is going on in board meetings at your competitors. Matt wanted to know: can you do this with the tarot? You really have to ask the NSA, CIA, and KGB about all of this (and "private contractors" ;-) because we don't teach spying around here. I have no desire to end up in a gulag! But, this is how we imagine it would be done. 

Remote viewing is a hot topic in metaphysical circles, and the tarot, as a divination tool "was made for*" remote viewing (please don't call it spying--it sounds creepy). So, support your local government, stay in school, and get your ass to (insert your favorite church, temple, or sanctuary here) every Saturday, Sunday, full moon (etc.) and be a good citizen. In the meantime, here is how to "see places" others can't.

The audio lesson covers a LOT, but the course at Easy Tarot Lessons . com covers it all (and it is in Advanced Tarot Secrets. You should take notes. But until you do, here is a free mini-lesson (extra information you can use right now!). Remote viewing (or RV) is a disciplined act that happens spontaneously to pretty much everyone at some point in their lives, and most often it is subtle and not very clear. Also, it happens in dreams or when something "assaults" us (a vision flashes into view). Some people recognize this as a gift they have, and others may see it as a strange event and shrug it off. Without proper education (and LOTS of practice) it is extremely hard to rely on this, but not impossible. Here are a few pointers to get your abilities up to speed (you will need to practice these a lot): 

Focus. You need to be able to hold your focus and not be distracted. This is not the distraction from outside (noises, shiny objects . . .) but the internal chatter of your brain, and the whims of a short attention span. Obsession is a powerful tool that builds focus, but it is one most people misuse, so it gets a bad rap. Adding a (small) dose of obsession or intent emotion to your focus makes it easier to stay on topic (mentally). Next, Always start with some small thing you can anchor yourself to in a remote location. This will be something you can come back to over and over. This part is easy, as we all do this naturally; but by doing this consciously and consistently you can strengthen your abilities quickly. This one exercise will help you in a LOT more ways than just RV, but that is for later. Right now just focus on objects that you can use to remember specific locations, circumstances, and events. These will most often be visual, but any sounds, or smells you can add help tremendously.

Next I would like you to build a strong focus on an object that you can move around. Give away something you have significant emotional attachment to and a strong sense of (sight, smell, perhaps sound). You should be able to remember this item easily and conjure up the essence of it any time, anywhere you are. Do this with several objects and use them as anchor points for your RV exercises. Bring them into focus (in your mind) and expand your awareness slowly to envision what is next to them, what they are sitting on, and the temperature where they are (hot, warm, cool, cold; also wet, damp, dry), and whether there is light there or not. This is not "easy" but it is worth the effort if you are resolute on developing a powerful visionary ability. Your cards can help, and this is what this lesson is for (and why we have a complete course on using your cards for all kids of fun things. Start learning for one dollar

How to know when your cards are right

The most important moment of casting a spread is knowing when to stop shuffling. This is a scary thing if we think too much about it because even one shuffle too much gives us completely random cards. Some people think that we need to let our clients shuffle the deck and cut, or tell us when to stop shuffling, or just shuffle the cards 6 or 7 times. If ANY of these things actually worked we'd all be millionaires, because clients would force money on is to answer all of life's most pressing questions. Unfortunately none of those method work, so today's free lesson is all about how to know when to stop shuffling your cards.

When you are preparing to cast a spread (to answer a question) you need to have a question in mind, and you should be shuffling. LET THE GODS DECIDE when the cards are right. Never think you are smarter than the universe, and never try to force the cards to be in order just because you don;t want to shuffle any more, or you are getting nervous about how long it is taking to get your "ding!" of awareness that the top cards are in the right order. Stretch out your senses and extend your awareness into your cards while you are shuffling. Do this with the intent of "feeling" the answer in the form of the cards you need (for your spread) being in the right order. Shuffle, cut, shuffle, shuffle . . . you will feel it closing in. Then you will get a "ding!" (like a tiny bell) of awareness that the cards are "just right" for this spread.

 

So, how do we get there? Well, if you have been practicing the exercises in The Easiest Way to Learn the Tarot EVER!! and Advanced Tarot Secrets or if you have been taking the course here, then you will be well on your way to knowing all of this. BUT, if not, today's lesson will help. It runs about an hour and I gave Laura a few different examples and techniques, all of which work amazingly well for my students. So I hope that you enjoy this free lesson. Please post any comments that you have, and thanks for being here.

How to give GREAT readings (without bias)

Here's how to cleanse yourself of bias or personal judgment when giving a reading. We *all* do it. We are reading a spread and our brain wants to add its opinion. It wants to use "logic" (tainted by all of our years of life experience) to explain the cards instead of allowing our intuition to channel in the information from the divine. In today's lesson I sat down with Tania and helped her in a free one-on-one personalized tarot lesson to help her become a better reader. All of my tarot academy students get one of these this month.

Please listen in and take notes if you can, and have your cards if possible. We examine how to use exercise two to emotionally distance ourselves from the circumstances we read about so that we STOP tainting our intuition with personal bias. This is a powerful lesson and it reveals a simple exercise that will banish bad tarot reading habits from you quickly and easily. If you would like more free tarot lessons please sign up for our mailing list at easytarotlessons.com. If you would like to become one of the best tarot readers ever please consider taking our tarot course at http://www.easytarotlessons.com/members/register-here/ - you can start learning for $1 (for the first month of lessons). After that class is only ten bucks a week. Thanks for being here.

P.S. Don't forget that when you are reading a spread; for yourself or someone else ("client," friend, family member, random stranger etc.) it is far easier to actually help them (and give them extremely precise answers) *if* you talk to them. Don't ever let your clients (querents) treat you like a vending machine (insert coin - get answer). Imagine that you are having coffee with an old friend. Relax your awareness to that state and use that as your center, your focus. From there direct your conversation to find out what they are REALLY asking, not just the superficial stuff they are muttering. When people come for a reading they are almost ALWAYS suspicious, scared, or skeptical, which makes them hide information and intent. How can they possibly tell you what they are after unless they relax a bit? Help them relax and the truth will come out, and then you can relax and read for them. Don't judge your clients (see today's audio lesson) and simultaneously help them relax their judgment and defensiveness about you. Do this ONE THING and you will find your readings are clearer and easier, and the answers to their questions flow from you far more accurately.

Want to win the lottery right now? Here's how to pick numbers with your tarot cards

It's official: Wednesday's Euro lottery is over 50 million euros and America's "Power Ball" jackpot is a mind-blowing $1.3 BILLION! It is time to show you how to grab some of that cash for yourself. Screw you hard-working billionaires! I made my fortune overnight!

So, how to win the lottery. That is the question everyone is asking. Well, today Becky, Leslie, and I sat down to show you exactly how we plan on doing it. This is the most exact step-by-steep methodology using the tarot I believe you can find anywhere; and it is free. I didn't want to hand you a pre-formatted system of "just do this and trust me" picking winning numbers, so I walked you through a small part of the research I have been doing. I wanted you to see how we came to these conclusions, and how they represent the most stable and credible method of translating tarot card images into lottery numbers. The process of picking lottery numbers using your tarot deck is a LOT easier than trying to explain it, so don't let the explanation of it all scare you off. You will need one or two decks, depending on how complicated your lottery system is. All we talk about today is how to win the lottery. If you have any questions, or if you try this out, please email me (me@dustywhite.net) and let me know how you did. THANK YOU for being here! :-)

Triple episode! Manifestation and two reading examples

This is a super long extended triple lesson. We didn't mean to go long but there was just so much to cover. Becky started us out with a live update on her "financial freedom" manifestation. (Spoiler: It is working!) First tangible results are in -- 9 days later. Next there is a rant but within that are two powerful manifestation secrets not often taught.

Finally Becky and I both give mini readings on real-life events of the day. People have been asking to see how it is done, and we bare all (the fears, fopahs, and the genius) to show you two actual readings we did on the spot. All in all a solid lesson from which you can learn a lot. Please take the time to get through this. It will help you immensely. Thanks for being here :-)
