Are you fearful or scared of tarot?
Where else in your life do you hold yourself back?
Understand that is the price of living in fear and stop paying it.
“The cave you fear to enter holds the treasure you seek.” – Joseph Campbell
Your dream, goal, desire, ambition – this is your treasure.
This is the price you pay (not having it) as long as you let fear hold you back from facing reality.
Generally, there will be 3 types of people
1️⃣ ones who loves all magical, self-development, and introspection and are eager to explore
2️⃣ ones who are truly indifferent.
if someone offered them a session they would take it out of curiosity (if it did not conflict with any other commitments). ones who have nothing to lose by trying, nothing to lose if opportunity does not come up; ones who are not looking for it, but also see value in it once it is in front of them;
however, if the opportunity comes too close they might turn into the third kind….
3️⃣ ones who are afraid to try; afraid to get to know something they would not like;
in the extreme they would not be caught near these things; even though someone might think they could be remotely interested scares them;
“Your life does not get better by chance, it gets better by change.” – Jim Rohn
Great if you have noticed a fear in yourself. (i.e. fear of tarot)
I must congratulate you because that means you have growth possibilities in front of you. And you have a clear indication of which direction to go!
The first step is to realize that fear keeps us from something valuable.
Then it’s understanding the price of living in fear.
In my life every single time I conquered my fear I have realized that not facing fear, of taking action because of fear – put me away from what I wanted and brought me exactly what I wanted to avoid, what I feared to experience.
Fear is a liar. Acting out of fear brings what fear promises that will be avoided.
Simple example. Desire to talk to a beautiful woman, but fear of rejection. Acting out of fear of rejection is not talking to that woman. And what happens? I get rejected by default. Hence the prophecy of fear has been fulfilled, by acting out of it. The only way to not get rejected is to actually start that conversation.
The exact same principle applies to EVERY single situation and context.
Be it sales and not calling.
Be it romantic relationships and not bringing up hard subjects.
The more I fear something, the more I get what you fear. And the only way through, is through fear.
“The more you seek discomfort, the more you learn.” – Gary Vaynerchuk
There are countless methods of facing fears and emotional intelligence methods. But none of them work if I don’t work them.
And because the work is not very appealing, I need some skin in the game, some motivation to commit to it and not give up part way through.
“Don’t let the fear of losing be greater than the excitement of winning.” – Robert Kiyosaki
A great strategy to greatly increase the odds of success is temporarily redirecting attention from worst-case scenarios to potential wins. This gives a higher perspective and motivation.
“The only thing we have to fear is fear itself.” – Franklin D. Roosevelt
Another great tactic is actually facing the worst-case scenario. And then putting it in perspective of 10, 20, 50 years in the future.
And once faced, I often realize that fear itself is not that big, it’s the fear of facing the fear that makes up most of it.
“Fear is only as deep as the mind allows.” – Japanese Proverb
With all fears, we take them only as far as we feel comfortable.
What are the main reasons people fear tarot?
It’s fear of facing fear coming in different flavors.
It’s fear of not liking what they will find out (about themselves) in a session. Why?
It’s fear of facing themselves. Why?
It’s fear of what they could have been avoiding. Why?
It’s fear that it’s too much to deal with. Why?
Fear that they can’t do it?
Can’t do what? Do you see how ridiculous it is – fear of fear without facing fear to actually figure out what is the fear behind the fear?
They don’t even know what the fear is in the first place. How can they know if they can or can’t do it? They can NOT know it, and that’s why fear keeps them in a state of victim.
Clarity is power.
The truth is that we can deal with anything life throws at us!
All we need to do is be present and let go of everything that is not present.
Another fear that might come up is fear of scams and wasting time and money for bad entertainment. Or even making even more damage than there was.
This fear can only be true for people who are inclined to give their power away and believe themselves to be highly suggestible. People who believe that they have no or limited power over things happening in their own minds.
So regardless of the decision to take any tarot session or not – this fear itself already gives enough information to do the inner work and take the power back.
Why did I say only true for giving power away?
Because if I don’t give my power away, then my intuition is very sharp in telling me if any specific person is aligned with me or not.
Because if I don’t give my power away, then fear simply does not show up.
When I own my power I have no desire to be part of any scams. I am just not available for it. And therefore there is no fear of scams, because there is no attraction, and there is no treasure at the other end.
And I believe it is true for you too!
Just claim your power back, face whatever needs to be faced, and move on with your life in a direction magical!
So in conclusion, living in fear boils down to a lack of self-love, self-acceptance, and self-esteem. Stop doing that, stop limiting yourself.
“The only limits that exist are the ones you place on yourself.” – Evan Carmichael
