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.
