DEEDRA, IT'S MY FIRST TIME GETTING A READING WITH YOU, WHAT ARE YOU LIKE?
I am pretty frank, straight forward, fun and positive. I tend to see the higher reason for why things are happening. I am not judgmental. I do my best to relay the information in a realistic way as I interpret the cards. I don't sugar coat messages. I am known to tell it like it is with a light heart and a sense of humor because it is in your best interest for me to be honest. Even if you are missing the point (usually because your ego is trying to interpret what I am saying), I will kindly be relentless until your ego moves out of the way. I will be real with you while keeping the reading spiritually mindful. Expect the session to be a collaborative effort between me, you, and the cards. If you have to cry...totally cry. It is not uncommon for waterworks to start once we start talking about life. It's not all about me telling you about you. For instance, if you ask..."When will I get married?" the tarot and I aren't great at dates (I suggest consulting an astrologer). The answer most likely will describe the kind of mindset you will have by the time you are ready to get married. Life is a process with lessons and exercises. Don't be surprised if the cards initially bring up your very present time situation because in order to understand the probable future, we must gain clarity on who are you right now. I am not a fortune teller! I am here to help you awaken and understand what you are creating for your soul growth.
WHAT IS THE BEST WAY TO APPROACH A READING?
See it as a spiritual check up. Ask about yourself. Lots of times people want to know about other people but do you go to a medical doctor and ask how someone else is doing?
DEEDRA, ARE YOU PSYCHIC?
I consider myself an intuitive. I definitely have moments of clairvoyant visions and clairaudient hearing. I dream a lot and get messages too. I have my "medium" type moments. I just go with the flow and trust.
HOW TO PREPARE FOR A READING:
Be open to whatever the cards bring up. I lay the cards out first...they guide the session and they make us talk.
DEEDRA, WHAT IS THE HISTORY OF THE TAROT?
Google “tarot history” and you will find all the information you need there. I didn’t study the history, I just know how to read the cards. I think tarot started in Italy in the 1400's. Yes...it's old.
DEEDRA, DO YOU HAVE TO BE CERTIFIED OR LICENSED TO BE A TAROT READER?
No, there is no law for tarot readers. I never went through any certification program, followed a mentor nor had an institution tell me whether I was ready to “read” for people. I followed my passion, intuition, and soul expression. Only the client can determine whether I am legit or not. YOU are my teachers and I thank you! In fact, it's known to be "for entertainment purposes only". And I really dislike how television and movies portray tarot readers...as messing with the devil. Please....that is so boring and fear based. It's a shame they don't educate viewers on how to use the tarot as a tool for self awareness.
