Meditation and Tarot
Meditation is an excellent practice to help calm the body, mind and spirit. And when combined with the symbolic language of the tarot, meditation can also help you access a powerful source of inner guidance and self-awareness.

Using the tarot as a meditative focus enhances your ability to understand the cards at a deeper level, which will strengthen your skills when doing readings. By actively engaging your imagination and intuition in an ongoing dialog with the tarot, it’s possible to tap into a vast wellspring of ancient wisdom that lies just below the surface of our awareness. To begin meditating with the tarot, all you will need is a quiet, comfortable place to sit and a deck of tarot cards.

Choose Your Card
First, choose a card to meditate on. You can either pick a card randomly, from a face down deck of cards, or choose one that has shown up in your readings or that you’re attracted to. You may even decide on a card that frightens you so that you can face your fears and find out what hidden knowledge is there for you.

Get to Know Your Card
Sit comfortably and place the card at eye level (prop something up behind it if necessary so that when you open your eyes you can see it directly in front of you). Close your eyes and begin to take deep breaths. As you breathe, picture the images on the card in your mind’s eye. Periodically open your eyes and look at the card to refresh the image in your mind, and then close them again. Pay particular attention to the colors, shapes and symbols that are in the card. Allow these powerful images to unlock the keys to your own intuition.

Listening to Your Card
Open up to receiving information from the card. Without forcing any thoughts or ideas, just allow information about the card to come to you. This may come in the form of words or images, or simply a feeling. You may want to have a journal nearby to record any info that comes up.

Keeping it Going
You may want to do this meditation process with a new card every day, or you can choose one card to work with for a longer period of time so that you can develop a close relationship with the energies of that particular card. The more time and commitment you invest in connecting to each card, the more meaningful your tarot readings will be, as you will have your own association with the cards rather than just someone else’s interpretation of their meaning.
