How did I become involved with the tarot, my story explained…
I remember being a very little girl sitting at school and listening to people talk about this shop in my home town that sold ‘spooky stuff’ and I remember my mind going on a wander making me as fascinated as I was scared. I never actually went to this shop but my fascination with tarot stayed with me since then.
When I was younger, with my family, we used to go on weekends away to a place called Blackpool, in England. It’s by the sea side (even if it’s not really warm enough to go bathing!) and anyway, all along the sea front are arcades, bingo stalls and all sorts of weird and wonderful attractions. Amongst them are tarot readers and palm readers and my goodness would I kick up a fuss to go in and pay for a reading. You would step inside what can only be described as a small box that was just covered in dark velvet drapes, crystals and all things gypsy. I absolutely loved it!
It’s only really now that I’m looking back on it that I wonder if they do their readings purely for entertainment purposes or not? Regardless of that aspect, for me they set the atmosphere perfectly! So I used to do this every time we went to Blackpool but it wasn’t until I left college and decided to take a gap year before starting university that I really got introduced to the tarot on a personal level.
During this year I worked full time as an office assistant and it was here that I met who I would call my fountain of knowledge concerning the tarot and somebody I know is one of my Earth Angels.
I had always felt intuitively in touch with myself, my inner guidance and had already a list of occasions when I believe my gut was telling me something was about to happen but I had never really thought about using tarot cards as a guide for myself. This lady opened me up to so many wonderful things that I really do believe she helped to give me my first fundamental steps into my spiritual awakening. I learnt and continue to learn so much from this lady and she has remained a very important lady in my life, and my family’s life, even several years on. She also became my Mother’s tarot teacher who also offers professional tarot services and can be found at the following link: Eternal Hope & Guidance
