Is there something you do regularly that you consider a sacred practice? Some people pray every day; others have meditation or yoga practices that they consider sacred; while others go to church or temple each week. Do you do any of these things or something else? Or have you at some point in your life? If so, what are the benefits? If not, what do you think the benefits would be?
Maybe you’ve heard it said that nothing is sacred in this world anymore. While I don’t agree, I understand the sentiment. We’re constantly bombarded with advertising designed to make us feel inadequate, social media that makes us less social, and all kinds of other pervasively negative or mind-numbing influences. It can feel like modern life offers nothing truly special, much less transcendent. Meanwhile so much of what we experience is through a screen, and not even real. You may suspect this is not the natural order of life, which is why we thirst for the sacred. Looking back to the time before I started using tarot, I wanted so badly to feel connected to something sacred because I just didn’t see it anywhere around me.
If you thirst for more sacred in your life too, then I highly recommend developing your own sacred practice for working with tarot. In this chapter I’ll show you how. Your practice is how you’re going to learn tarot, and it’s how you’re going to slowly but surely open your mind and heart to intuition. It’s where you’re going to experience all those little “aha!” awakenings that eventually add up to the bigger, transformative process of spiritual awakening. I guarantee it’s going to become a treasured time of each day.
