What is the first thing that comes to mind when you think of tarot cards? Do you think about how you can shuffle them and play with them? Or do you immediately associate them with predictions of the future?
Perhaps you have thought about all of these when you first think about tarot suits. In truth, before they became known for reading or cartomancy, these cards were first played with. These cards were initially made for amusement.
Those who played with tarot cards before used it alongside a storytelling technique. Each player had to make up a story about the image or symbol shown in the card. The more intricate the symbol, the more interesting the story. In the end, everyone wins.
They were able to play with the cards and share stories with everyone too.
Over time, what used to be just playing cards became the tarot guide. People began to tap on the spirits to send messages through the card. The images used to be just pictures until they became...
What makes you happy? Often, people attach their idea of happiness to a particular outcome. And yet, they find themselves disappointed when things turn out that way. They begin to ask if there is some way they can be happy on their own.
Learning how to detach yourself emotionally may be one of the best gifts you can give yourself. You must learn to teach yourself to live without what you are longing for. That’s the only time you can indeed be happy.
This paradox of life has made many people wonder if emotional withdrawal is the key to finding their ultimate happiness.

The dictionary defines the term detachment as “the state of being aloof or objective.” You have to teach yourself to look at things from an objective...
What does it mean to meditate? You may have read a lot about motivation techniques and how they can help you find focus. While meditation may be a tool for relaxation, its practice offers something more than just that.
Meditation is a tool that enhances the mind. However, it can be used for something else that's not about relaxation at all.
There are many ways people can meditate as there are spaces where they can practice. And because every meditation experience is personal, there are more than hundreds, if not thousands of ways that it can be done.
Mindfulness meditations are considered the best morning meditation practice as they allow the mind to focus on one specific object or one specific thought. It could be about focusing on the flow of air in and out of the body. It could be about focusing on a sensation that the body feels, or it could be about focusing on a specific object such as the...

Every business leader knows how difficult it is to deal with their desire for perfection. This perfectionist syndrome is the very reason why they often find themselves heartbroken. It is not that their employees couldn't do it; it's just that they didn't give enough room for adjustments or improvements.
Aiming for the betterment of the team is always good, but trying to achieve perfection is not. The illusion of perfection is something the cause of team conflict. Managers often forget that their company is made up of humans and that their job is to lead these imperfect human beings to achieve something greater than themselves.
A company is considered one team. It is composed of different people with a different set of skills and knowledge to offer. Every member of the team contributes to the success of failure of the group. No one person is to be blamed.
What is tension? A workplace that does not come with...
The performance review season proves to be one of the most dreaded times of managers. It is not just about the bulk of work that needs to be done. The fear comes from the sheer exhaustion of dealing with defensive people.
Writing reviews and giving feedback takes a lot of time, and it can be particularly anxiety-inducing when you have an emotional person in your team. It's like a challenge that has become tougher over the years.
How do you deal with people who may cry, yell, or get defensive during the review?
The review of a performance does not only aim to improve the overall performance of the company. It is about putting a system in place that will allow every member of the company to contribute to its overall success.
Learning how to give good feedback should be the priority of every manager. It is about treating each member of the team as a valuable entity in the overall process. More than that, good...
We experience synchronicity in a variety of ways. A few of them are:
There are numerous other ways, but there are a few that I've found very common.
I will go into a more detailed description of the following material, but for now, understand synchronicity is a way in which higher intelligence communicates to us. It is what we label to be a coincidence, fate, circumstance, chance happenings. It is also what we sometimes experience as flow, harmony, peace, or ease. Some other forms of communication from a higher intelligence would be sparks of inspiration, moments of extreme clarity where...
As you begin to recognize and comprehend more synchronicity, there will inevitably be a desire to experience more of it.
Remember that synchronicity is happening all of the time. What varies is the profundity of that synchronicity relative to your ability to perceive it.
Think about how a telescope works. Light streams into the objective lens of a refractor telescope and are narrowed towards the observer's eyepiece lens to experience it. In a reflector telescope, the concave mirror accepts the light and mirrors it towards the observer's eyepiece.
In either case, the goal is to accept or perceive more light into the system. This is done by merely having a more substantial receptacle—a mirror or lens. The more light that gets in, the cleaner, clearer, and more distant, the images are in the perception of the user. The planets, stars, and galaxies observed through a telescope pointed into space were already there before the observation. It was merely the...
Psychics are often judged by the things that people think they know about them. While many assume they know psychics well, the truth is that there is so much the world is yet to know.
Psychics don’t always have it easy. Their practice is not often trusted, but they continue to do what they do because they are doing it for themselves. More than anything, it is their quest to learn more about themselves and the world that got them started in the practice of psychic reading.
Television, movies, and other media platforms have made people believe that psychics are phonies who pretend to have spiritual powers that just guess what the future will bring.
It has started a kind of skepticism among the public as to how credible psychics are. In truth, such representations have given birth to several myths that give these spiritual practitioners a bad name.

What do you do a tarot reading for? While most would admit that they do a tarot reading to know what's coming in the future, others say that they do it because it tells them what happened in the past or how to solve present problems.
When getting a present-day tarot reading, not only does it help keep you updated, but your new awareness of the situation enables you to act accordingly.
But how can you continue reading tarot cards when everything seems to have shifted online?
When you think of the feel of every tarot card in your hand, you know that nothing beats the experience. However, when you do an online psychic reading, the process is the same, except that everything has become virtual.
Even when doing tarot virtually, the intent to learn is still there. As long as the honest purpose is declared before reading the tarot, the platform used to do it does not matter. The cards will reveal what they reveal,...
