If you EVER want to make money reading for clients (face to face) you need to listen to this (**free**) lesson on how to make it work for you.

Mandy and I sat down and revealed what we have been working on for the past few months. Mandy is one of my hand-taught students and I personally supervise her instruction and progress (she is in the UK and I am in California). First we built her success and popularity on the psychic phone lines and then she felt the need to expand into in-person readings to build up a regular clientele. After researching options and finding what was best suited to her knowledge, current income (resources), desires, and work style she came up with the idea to read in public at a market.

In this lesson we discuss everything she did to make this a reality and how amazingly well it has turned out (she was in the black at the end of her first day!). Nothing is hidden. Nothing is held back. We examined what she did and how she did it and WHY she did it, so that we can apply it to you and your circumstances. This will be required listening at the tarot academy (at www.easytarotlessons.com) so you really want to get this information while it is still free.

This is real-life in real-time. There is no trickery or hyperbole here. YOU CAN DO THIS if you apply yourself. We are here to help you and if you have any questions just ask. Thanks for being here :-)

"Blind Date" is a new tarot game Mandy invented and it is easy, addictive, and makes study group time fun. I had a few reservations about this game until I tried it and it has instantly become one of the most popular new tarot games we have invented. It is based on the British TV show of the same name (if you are in America and remember "The Dating Game" it is like that but at the end they bring the contestants back and see how the date actually went). 

This game has you become the contestant, the mystery bachelor/bachelorettes and the announcer. You choose their personality based on the card(s) in your hand. Then you immerse yourself into the personality of those cards and act out the game as if you were actually on the game show. This game is seriously funny and educational in ways that strengthen your subconscious to conscious minds communication in real-life tarot readings for clients, your friends and family, and yourself. 

Tarot card meanings are not a mystery, they just haven't been taught properly. This is why so many people struggle with what a card means in a tarot reading. That all ends here. Today's goofy lesson is all about how to know what your cards mean when they come up in practice or an actual spread you are casting for a paying client.

To actually understand what your cards are saying to you requires a familiarity with your tarot cards. Each card in your deck has an image on it and inside that image is a message: a visual representation of someone doing something. There is no mystery to it at all. The point of reading tarot cards is to help divine information otherwise inaccessible, and that means that you have to know your tool inside and out, just like a mechanic knows his tools, a surgeon knows her tools, or a psychologist knows the working of the brain. So, we all have to learn, practice, and study. But it doesn't have to be boring, which is why we have DOZENS of tarot games and exercises to help you get to know your cards intimately.

Today's free lesson is extremely helpful in getting to know the tarot cards in your hand, so that when you are out in the real-world giving readings you can extract much more information than most readers you will ever meet. As always, ask me questions if you have any: me@dustywhite.net. I am here to help you.

Mandy, Sharon and I were sitting around talking about our most unusual possessions, so we decided to share them with you! That brought us to talking about judging other
people and of course about reading without judgement.

We talked about when to say no and when to take on the responsibility of accepting a client without letting bias enter the equation. It is extremely important that when
you read, you deliver the message you receive in the reading and not your own personal opinion. We have covered this in depth in the course at www.easytarotlessons.com and also in some free podcasts about the "yappy dog" in The Fool card. It is tempting to warp the information we receive from the divine (through divination) into words and beliefs that make sense to us, but that is not our job.

Reading tarot without bias or filters is an essential skill for the student and for the professional, otherwise we give faulty information and earn a bad reputation. We can always couch the term we use, but that is like the exterior paint on a house: It is distinct and separate from the inside and may never cross the threshold. Consider that carefully and compare it to your abilities as a problem solver and counselor. Refuse to allow ingrained patterns to poison the information you are receiving or you will lose confidence and reputation that will be hard to ever win back. 

One way to lose a client forever is to give them a sermon on what they want to ask. We are here to help you avoid all of that. If you join our community we can share so much more with you. We are here to help you rise above mediocrity and we are working on this seven days a week, every week. You will be hard pressed to find anyone with more commitment to your growth and perfection at any cost (and this information is free).

If you have any questions about how to leave bias behind, or when to know when you can't, come join us! We are here to help.

Thanks for being here :-)

This episode runs really long (almost 90 minutes). It was a casual discussion between one of my private students (Mandy) and myself about the real-world experiences we all face in reading tarot for other people. Occasionally we all get a difficult client.

Most people you read for have a good time and you two end up enjoying a conversation with value exchanged on both sides, but every once in a while you will not make a connection with someone. You can't read for them (for various reasons), you can't connect with them, or worse: they are just bad clients. Fortunately this last one happens extremely rarely, but we wanted to discuss what these things are like and how to deal with them.

It is better that you know up front what fate awaits you when you read for a lot of people (in person or online, or even over the phone). You are not alone—this happens to all of us—and "it's not you; it's them." This is not assigning blame. It is just a statement of fact that you won't connect with everyone you meet in life, and the same holds true in readings.

Not the most upbeat of lessons but one that is worth listening to if you have a long drive or a lot of patience. Let me know if you have any questions or post a comment below. As always, thanks for being here. Get ALL of our free lessons (or join our community of highly skilled, professionally trained readers at www.easytarotlessons.com. You are NOT alone.
